Matty Update – DCU Wave 5 Is Alive

Matty Collector has posted a DC Universe update for May:

Back in 2008, we released Wave 5, which was an instant success and subsequently pretty hard to find. If you missed your chance, mark May 17th on your calendar, because Wave 5 is coming back!

This release is identical to the one in 2008 − same package, same decos, not a single change to the figures. Like all our boxed sets, these are individually carded figures packed into a single box. The set has the five figures you need to build a 9″ Collect and Connectâ„¢ Metallo figure. Take a look inside and you’ll find these classic characters ready to rock your collection:

Eradicator, Black Lightning, Amazo, The Riddler and The Atom.

    That's soooo cool! I've been trying to get an Atom for the longest time. Does anyone know if these will be exclusive to Matty online or can we expect them in stores?

    When they re-release the Giganta wave, THEN I'll jump for joy.

    HELL YEAH! I only ever saw 1 figure from this wave. ONE! I might order this set. Great news that it's returning in complete form.

    AWSOME! This means I won't have to pay high amounts of money on ebay, instead just the amount for 5 figures

    So, I'm a little confused...will these be sold indvidually or as a box set...I only want 1 figure from this wave that's why i ask.

    Well its about damn time LOL. Can't wait for this set to go onsale in May.

    And Grim, Im going to safely assume its like all other DCU Classic sets that are sold on MattyCollector will be sold as a set only.

    Wave 5 is all well and good, but I want a re-release of wave 8!

    I hope they keep them around the $15 mark like the other sets they've had available.

    Matty posted an update on April 27th MattyCollector.com Online Store
    Wave 5 will NOW be Available on June 15th *gags* along with She-Ra, Faker and Keldor. But it will be $70 which is hella cheaper than what you could find it for on ebay.

    hmmmm interesting but I don't think I'll be getting this one, 'sides I owe my CC big bucks and only get paid meager wages.

    I like the idea of a rerelease so i can complete my set but.......WTF Same packaging? great way to piss off peple that paid to get figures before =/

  13. Korben has no avatar! Korben says

    These should be available later today, does anyone have experience ordering exclusives on Matty.com? I've heard mostly negative things about the process.

    Really only interested in The Riddler, honestly, so looks like I'll be passing on it. Unless they release the figures individually, but I doubt that'll happen.

    of course that wouldn't happen,they want all your money,thats why i stopped buying MOTUC

    Still waiting for a re-release of wave 8. Also wouldn't mind a reissue of waves 2 and 10 as well.

    I really like the idea of getting a CnC set all at once, but it's hard to justify the money when you're only interested in one or two figures from the line. It would be even worse if I was only interested in the CnC figure.

    What I really want from Matty is a "Super Rare" wave consisting of three figures: Harley Quinn, Gentleman Ghost and the Joker. Drop the CnC parts and change the packaging slightly to avoid the "exclusive" entanglements. Hell, you could drop ALL of the accessories from the figures. Just having them alone would be enough.

    As much as I like this idea i would be madder than hell if that was the only alternative to getting a Gentleman Ghost figure. My Giganta torso and limbs are in a plastic bag in my basement whimpering to be reunited with the rest of her body parts so c'mon Mattel step up.

    Yeah, it would really suck for people who already have most of their respective waves already. Although, if Matty ever got around to releasing boxed sets of those waves, you could always Ebay your extra parts.

    Well, if I ever have the money to get a GG at a reasonable price, you can have the Giganta parts and just pay for shipping.

    I wish these were individual release because I am not interested in this whole wave, just Black lightning, Amazo and perhaps the Eradicator.
