On Sunday, Mattel’s Scott Neitlich announced that the long-delayed wave 14 of DC Universe Classics had arrived at Mattel’s U.S. distribution center and was awaiting a transfer of custody to Wal-Mart.
That should mean that we’ll begin to see these on Wal-Mart shelves within a week or so. All I can say is, it’s about time!
I’d like to take this moment to remind you all about the Finding Wave 14 at WalMart Support Group over at Facebook.
Meanwhile, a poster known as ‘trs’ over at ActionFigurePics had somehow come into possession of a set as early as last Wednesday. Now, it’s not unusual for factory samples, or stolen figures to show up early on eBay through sellers in China, but that was not the case here. This poster had a clean case of packaged, retail figures.
How the heck did he manage that? I’ve been busting my brains all weekend to figure it out, and then it came to me – how stupid I was for not seeing it!
The poster goes by ‘TRS’. TRS? TODD RICE SCOTT! Seems as though he had the inside track on this wave.
(Let the hunt begin!)
