DC Universe Classics - Wave 12 PREVIEW

First, I'd like to point your attention to some new additions to the blog. I've decided to add some interaction and have added a few polls, videos and slideshows to the sidebar on the left side of the screen. Feel free to scroll through and participate.

Now, not to long ago, Mattel released information regarding the line up for DC Universe Classics wave 12 set. Well, now there are photo's have been released and Action Toy Review is ready to give you a preview. If you're looking to pre-order this set which is due to release sometime in early 2010 (around March), check out the "Entertainment Earth" link on the top left corner. Now on to the preview:

In no particular order we will go ladies first and start with Mary Batson. A variant with a white costume is also said to be part of the set:

Next we have Spectre. There will be a variant of this action figure but no photos are available yet.

The next figure is Metal Man. He will have removable hands similar to Cyborg in wave 4.

The next figure is Copperhead.

Align CenterThen we have Eclipso:

Next is Dr Mid-Nite:

And finally we have Desaad who i believe will also have a variant, however no photo is available at this time (correction: no variant of Desaad in this wave)

Last but not least the "Collect and Connect" action figure for wave 12 will be a new and improved and bigger version of Darkseid. (Back in 2006 there were 2 versions of Darkseid released in the DC Superheroes toy line by Mattel)

So there you have it. A quick and dirty preview of the DCUC wave 12 which probably wont be out until March 2010. As mentioned, you can Pre-Order your set now at Just click on the link on the very top left of the page. I've also added a poll on the left side bar menu. Tell Action Toy Review what you think of this latest DCUC set of action figures.

omfg, Mattel is a complete joke! They short people on Waves 8 and 9 and now they can't their act together. What is the deal with this company where every 5th or 4th wave released is the common one. Trying to find these things is like a needle in a haystack. Even Hasbro/Toybiz was better with distro on Marvel, Transformers, and even Star Wars. It is ridiculous. They can blame Wal-Mart all they want, Mattel has the power to forge more relationships and sell the stuff online. But they choose to Masters of the Universe right now knowing it is a lot hotter than DC Universe. Its a bubble waiting to pop.

The Wal-Marts in my area have not had ANY DCUC action figures since wave 1. I rely on ebay to get these figures and there is no shortage of any of the figures from waves 1-7 there. So i question the "Shortage" theory. I think some areas are just luckier than others. There are also a lot of Wave 8 & 9 figures on eBay, (except for Gentleman Ghost who continues to elude me) but right now the prices are still high for these figures. once the wave 11 and 12 sets get released ebay sellers will be dropping the prices of 8 and 9 and I'm sure you wont have a problem finding them. Obvously the crappy thing about eBay is paying the shipping.

I have Doctor Mid-Nite and the Spectre and couldn't be happier. I'm glad that these iconic JSA members have gotten their due.
