    I've always found Super Powers Darkseid incredibly bland, so I like his new jumpsuit.

    It's honestly not bad, and the figure is pretty nice. I'm a Kirby purist, so I like his redesigns (which he did for SP and that actually allowed him to get royalties off the characters), but don't really care for anyone else's modifications to the New Gods. Well, the Darkseid/Brainiac hybrid from the JLU finale was pretty sweet.

    I like all of Kirby's Super Powers redesigns.

    Ad that's why we probably don't see them much anymore.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    ^My understanding was Kirby was grandfathered in on ALL Fourth World appearances after that. He gets credit everytime they show up, so hopefully his estate is getting some residuals. At one time DC was doing this and Marvel wasn't.

    I like some of the Apokolips designs, especially Mantis and the Parademons, but many of them needed more colour, far too earth tone.

    That's good to hear. My understanding was the royalties were only for the redesigns.

    Stopped at two Walmarts today and was able to add Batman from one store and the BatWing from another to the Superman I already have. The BatWing was shelf priced at $24.97 and scanned $29.97 (the price of the Supermobile)! They fixed it for me. Wasn’t the BatWing scanning $19.97 when it was first found? I only want classic-ish looks on these, so I will be skipping the LOL Batman and most likely the Darkseid too.

    Yeah, the Batwing was $19.97 when I bought it.

    These are trickling out at my local Walmart, as are other McFarlane (I found AzBats!) and Marvel Legends toys. Darkseid hit the pegs first, which I skipped. I was only going to get Superman and The Supermobile.

    Then Superman and Batman showed up and I bought them both. Then on Walmart.com, I was able to order the Supermobile to ship, them succumbed to my Batman obsession and ordered a Batwing for pickup later today. It hasn't been canceled yet (I had the Supermobile pickup order canceled twice), so I am hopeful.

    I picked the best Superman and Batman possible, regardless of card condition, with the promise to myself that these will get opened, even though both cards are in good shape.

    It's been an expensive week, with all the new toy resets being filled and my Mego Wave 15 order finally being fulfilled.

    I saw the Super Powers floor display on an endcap today, but unfortunately it was empty. Looked like they were in the middle of resetting the toy aisle.

    My Supermobile was delayed from Walmart.com. Bahhhh.

    P.S. Ahhh, looks like it will be here Tuesday.
