    I went back again last Sunday. Still nothing.

      You're in the Rochester area, right? I stopped into the stores in Geneva and Canandaigua late last week and found squat. I'm sure I was about a week too late judging by the recent northeast sightings on the MA Facebook page..

      I finally got lucky last week, about a week or so after I gave up and bought Superman and Robin from Tammy's Toy Box, which felt reasonably priced. Walmart Canada will have these delayed indefinitely, so I just got the two I really wanted.

      One one last search, I knew I missed them at one Big Lots because they had the Mego Minix on the shelf (that no one is talking about... Wednesdays are pretty neat looking!). I hit another one which I do not think is getting them, which led me to another one when had a lone Superman that I picked up. I decided to try one last Big Lots and jackpot! Full case. I bought two Robins and Two Batmans and used two $10 off when you spend $40 coupons (with a couple of candy bars to get the total over $40) to get them for $15 each. I thought about the Joker, but I haven't even opened my regular version and the purple hands are just eh. And I didn't need a third Superman.

      So, happy to have finally found these in the store, but it's luck of the draw. If I didn't find them that day, there is a good chance I would have never found them. Hoping another collector found the remaining ones (a set minus Robin).

          Sorry; I have been on and offline lately. I found them in the Buffalo area. I finally checked the Henrietta Big Lots last Friday and saw the Wednesday Minx, which was the sign (I believe) that they had come and gone from that store.

            It's been a while, but I got some cash for Christmas and I'm going back Thursday to see if they still have Batman and Joker. Probably not, but it's worth a shot.

              I have no BigLots here in the Bronx I believe. Does anyone know if I could order via a Website?

                They did not have them anymore. Bummer!

                  Still nothing here in Tampa, FL, but I was over in Eustis, FL today (rural area closer to Orlando) and found a singular Batman in the toy aisle. He looks cash fresh so I'm not sure how long he has been there. I asked if they had more/other characters, but the cashier didn't know how to check??? Anyway, glad to have Bats and hope to run across the others some day.

                    I checked their website a couple of times. I've searched Mego, Superman, Batman, Robin, and Joker. Nothing.

                      I have given up on looking for these at the beginning of this year but I wandered into one yesterday out of curiosity and found a lone batman finally in the toy aisle on the top shelf face down. So I think I will be looking out for them again.

                        I popped into our local Big Lots last month on a whim and found Joker and Superman. Bought them both.
                        Fresh, not from concentrate.

                          I still need a Joker so maybe I'll start hunting again.

                            Joker was the only one not available in Canada. The prices on eBay are crazy!
