these never popped up in my area either. I had to get Temblor off ebay and I never found a gearhead on the shelves. Still need him too. We jumped from the Clayface/Riddler overstocks straight into the Shadowteks. My area sucks fro stocking.
I found Card Attack Joker at my local Walgreen's months ago, but had to pass on him at the time. My local stores jumped from the Riddler/Clayface wave to...well...nothing. There were so many Clayface's and Riddlers left they eventually found their way to the clearance aisle. Since then, no new The Batman figures in my immediate area. I've had to go pretty far out of my area just too find the Shadowtek wave.

i never saw card attack joker i never saw strangle sleeve joker i saw 1 deluxe tux penguin i never saw batgirl or blaster batgirl (although i got them both) and yesi got to at least 10 stores a week just when i'm out and about
I've seemed to be getting them late over here, but I've been able to get all the villains without a problem. I have to say though, that I've only seen them once, and that's it. When I picked up Card Attack Joker, it was the only one on the shelf, and I haven't seen once since, anywhere.

I only ever saw 2 Card Attack Jokers, 2 Strangle Sleeves Jokers,3 original Mr. Freeze, 2 Metalheads, 1 Babs Batgirl and 3 Deluxe Tux Penguins and most of those were at Walgreens, the rest have been easy to find including tons of Temblors!
I live in the South Bend, IN area and I never saw Metalhead, Killer Croc, Strangle Sleeves or Card Attack Joker - so far I've got all but Card Attack on Ebay, and that figure is going for $20 or more, so I'll wait for a while I guess - I only saw Blaster Batgirl once, and luckily I had the cash - never saw her again. Just like many of you, I'm checking at least 6-8 stores once or twice a week, which is WAY more than what should be necessary. I can't think of another commercial, profit-based company - whether it produces food, media, technology, etc. - that seems to value UNAVAILABILITY as a part of its' marketing scheme. When a potential customer is willing to drive all over town to buy a product, yet still can't find that product, then somebody is letting a lot of money walk out the door, get in the car and drive home mad. You would think that there would have to be somebody sharp enough at a company like Mattel to realize that there is a disconnect between their product and their customers - why not an online store to order direct, or hook up with a site like this to make these items available to collectors who are DYING to pay for these figures? Hell, even when they do respond to the buyer's wants ("The Batman" Poison Ivy and Ventriloquist), they screw that up by bundling them with a bunch of figures everybody has - then, after collecting dust on the shelves over Christmas, wind up selling them at half or one-third of the original price. After that result, who knows what the attitude will be towards other non-Batman figures? It boggles my mind sometimes.
