    So I get up at 4am for this Black Friday thing this morning hoping that I would find SOMETHING new at such an odd hunting time and I did. I finally nabbed a set of all four the new DC Universe 2-packs! I get them home and after a few hours of sleep to catch up I rip out the Abin Sur figure only to find that he has 2 left legs! Not only that Green Lanterns shoulder wouldn't move until it just snapped clean off! This is also two days after I find an Eradicator at Wal-Mart only to have him have two right fists.....

    I swear, if I get one more retarded figure I am melting them all down and shipping the hunk to Mattel! All I am saying is before you purchase these figures at the store (or worse, ebay) MAKE SURE IT HAS ALL THE RIGHT PARTS!

    KEEP THOSE RECEIPTS

    Azrael has always been a fav of mine...the GL set is awesome and I'll snag that.

    I really like the look of that Batgirl/Azrael 2-pack. The others, I'm not really sold on. In fact, that Orion looks similar to the single carded version (though it just could be the size of the pic).

    They have them in stock online at the moment:

    DC Comics Universe 6 Inch Figures - Orion/Lightray - Mattel

    DC Comics Universe 6 Inch Figures - Cyborg Superman/Mongul - Mattel - Toys "R" Us

    DC Comics Universe 6 Inch Figures - Azreal/Batgirl - Mattel

    DC Comics Universe 6 Inch Figures - Green Lantern/Abin Sur - Mattel - Toys "R" Us

    I looked for these before under the "DC Universe Classics" & I get a few of the single figures, if I searched for "DC Exclusive" I got them, even though "Exclusive" isn't in the description. Anyways, if you want to risk it, go get them. I just picked up the Azrael/Batgirl, all I ask is that they're anatomically correct...

    He's very similar. In fact, the only difference is a new head -- his helmet's now removable.

    But then, neither Batgirl nor Azrael are new.

    Not really, apparently. I've been trying to order them since yesterday. Even if they say "in stock", when I try to add them to my cart, I get this:

    Paint lock has definitely been a problem with this line, but I've not had anything break. I did have to do a little carving around my single-carded GL's hip to get it freed up, though.

    But I've certainly not heard anything about incorrect parts. I don't know how the factory was even able to put a left leg on the right hip.

    You seem to have drawn to DCUC short straw.

    I really hope my local TRUs get some of these packs. Only want one but due to the paint apps problems I got to see them before I make a purchase.

  9. Noizeindex's Avatar Noizeindex says

    I just got my Azrael/Batgirl 2 pack from TRU.com, & I ordered them Saturday! The box is in perfect shape too, pics to follow when I have a minute.

    I have tp get the Batgirl pack. I'm glad she was reissued, I missed her the first time when she was a Target Exclusive.

  11. trebleshot's Avatar trebleshot says

    Yeah, I never saw her and only saw Azrael once in stores, so if I happen to come across that 2-pack, I might get it.

  12. MegaPrime33's Avatar MegaPrime33 says

    These actually are pretty impressive. I saw one left in store, but didnt grab it. No cash at the time.

    I stocked a case of these night before last. They look good. But, yeah....paint app problems kept me from getting the Batgirl pack. Paint on her face and eyes were sloppy.

  14. Darkravager's Avatar Darkravager says

    I might get the GL pack for Abin Sur and make a new GL out of the extra Hal.

    I'll make sure to inspect the Batgirls before I purchase mine then.

  16. Syn3sthesia's Avatar Syn3sthesia says

    No offense but...you do sort of have to inspect anything you buy from DC Universe line. If you are not careful you can end up with a Batman Beyond with 2 left hands!

    You were actually able to convince the site to let you buy one? Kudos.

    Despite being listed as in stock, I never was able to get the GL or New Gods set into my cart. Now, of course, they're all listed as out of stock.

  18. Jarodimus's Avatar Jarodimus says

    Found the GL and New Gods 2-packs today...

    ... and Abin Sur's left leg twisted right off at the hip as soon as I first tried to move it. Same thing happened to my Batman Beyond figure when I got it last week. And BOTH of Lightray's hips seem like they'll do the same thing if I try any harder to get them to rotate.

    Anyone have any suggestions for freeing up paint-locked joints without breakage?

  19. trebleshot's Avatar trebleshot says

    That sucks dude!

    As for preventative maintenance, either hot water to soften the plastic and working it free or a utility knife to make small cuts work well.

    For my 6" DCUC or Movie Masters figures from Mattel that had stuck joints, I shoved them into the freezer for a few minutes and after that, slowly moved the joints, trying to break the paint seal. It has worked so far.

    i cant find a halfway decent batgirl. is that nasty grey brush over the body necessary, both figures ive seen have it go right over the bat symbol.
