Places like BBTS

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

I am wondering do any of you guys know of any online shops that have a selection comparable to BBTS but also take preorders using paypal. I want to Preorder DC all stars and Marvel legends wave 3 but BBTS doesn't take paypal. I don't wanna use my credit card because I don't want them to randomly take the money and I end up over spending that month. If I can use paypal then I just send the money to paypal and they take it from there, it would be ready and waiting

My experience with how Mattel does things says you shouldn't hold much hope for anything. There is a lot of time between now and when (SDCC) they might announce what their plans are for this "last wave of DCUC" and what they will be doing in 2013, which means there is plenty of time for them to come up with why it won't happen, blaming fans in the process like they have done with Justice League Unlimited, Young Justice and Ghostbusters.

yeah... Mattel is freakin idiots. I was so excited about the New Batman and now I am sad

so.... are we getting the new Batman in this last new line or is that canceled? I am just a bit confused cuz BBTS is normally on top this kind of thing and pulls listings if they get cancelled

This references what I'm talking about, but I'm going to keep digging for where I heard it first.

They have some really good prices heck I may check back with them when its time to order RML3. I've pretty much decided for now on Im going to pre order cases of any ML or DCUA waves that come out

I should have a nice little payday at the beginning of next month so I wanna spoil myself with at least one nice thing so Im trying to decide between face off captain America or Pre order DCUA wave 1. Either way Im eventually gunna get both

Sounds like you're getting FO Cap, DC All Stars has been cancelled and there is supposed to be (according to Mattel) one more wave of DCUC, but no line up has been announced, after that the only announced plans for DC toys from Mattel at retail are movie related merch and their new "evergreen" Batman line. They'll continue their online sub for DCUC for the rest of the year and maybe next year if they can get enough subscribers.
when was that announced? I heard that it was cancelled but then they brought it back with a new wave one line up with Superman, Superboy, Red Robin and Batman

Their shelves are LOADED with stuff. I'm not sure they have everything on the website, (I know they don't list the tons of loose figures they have) but you should call if you are looking for something particular. The owner can find just about anything.

There can't be preorders as the whole wave hasn't been announced yet and only two figures have been materialized.
