I was at my local Big Lots to see if they rec'd any of the Cyborg Superman wave. They did, but I missed him,as only Black Suit Superman and the other common figures were there. That's my 1st question- Big Lots gets the scarce, newly released Cyborg Superman wave; before online retailers even get them ?
Those DCSH figure were on the bottom of a whole DC endcap which also had:
-The new JLU Hawkman and Joker 3 packs -my ? again -WTH ? -Four different 2003 Deluxe Mattel 6" Batman Figures -Battle Armor Batman/Joker 2 Pack
I picked up the Joker 2 pack, as most of you know I collect packaging variants. I wanted to see if it was a variant I missed 2 years ago. Guess what folks, this was a NEW PRODUCTION RUN ! A slightly modified blister and cardback but it was produced this freakin year ?
I've included a partial scan of the front as a refresher and the part that was modified on the back. The 4 deluxe figures and Joker 2 pack were made to coexist, date stamp of 1447WC.
So, if Mattel can do straight reissues, packaging and all from 2 years ago, why not the regular release of Acid Cannon Joker, Bane w/fists, Battle Armor Nightwing,etc. ?
I'd be really curious to find out what is up with this !!!

This is the kind of stuff that really makes you wonder. Those new JLU 3-packs cannot be found anywhere in my area, and I have actually bid (unsuccessfully) on a few on eBay! Obviously the eBay prices are nuts, 20.00 and up (plus overcharged shipping), yet everybody's grandmas, aunts and uncles are passing these by on their way to the tube socks? I found a deluxe comic line Batman there a few years ago that had never been released in the US (the yellow one with the sled-type accessory shown on the cardback photo you posted), while, at the same time, the imported European release of the figure was making money for the scalpers on eBay. And the beat goes on....
