    Well, you know, wave 5 was such a big hit with collectors...

    Which collectors? None of us have any of them.

    So apparently, the San Fransisco Examiner's website has an "Action Figure Examiner" (you'd think I would have know this as a lifelong Bay Area resident) who is reporting the full lineup for waves 10 and 11:

    wave 10 -
    Joker
    Man-Bat
    Power Girl
    Forager
    Beast Boy (great! So now I can look forward to never finishing my Teen Titans line-up as well as my JSA!)
    Robotman (ditto for the Doom Patrol!)
    Static

    (This one is going to leave a [i]lot[\i] of major holes in my collection - lots of favorites there!)

    wave 11 - (Collect-and-Connect Kilowog- aww yeah!)
    John Stewart
    Katma Tui (cool, but I'd prefer Soranik Natu)
    Cyborg Superman (hopefully a new, resculpted version more in line with the current aesthetic)
    The Shark (he should be big enough to be a Collect-and-Connect himself)
    Deadman
    The Question
    Steppenwolf

    (at least this one will be available at all retail outlets...well, at least as available as this line ever is. I'll probably pre-order the lot online as I've taken to doing lately.)

    Did I ever mention how much I hate Wal-Mart, and their insistence on ordering exclusives and then never stocking them in their stores? I really do think the buyers for toys at Wal-Mart are all eBay scalpers themselves!

    Sarcasm. It's the only way I can cope with the slap in the face that kept me from owning the Riddler and the Atom.

    Oh good, more Batman favorites that I'll drool over and will have to go without. Have only been yearn for that Manbat since they announced him for DC Superheroes as they ran that into the ground...

    Oh, okay I see! Yeah, those Atom and Riddler figures sure were the best weren't they?! Those are my favorite imaginary figures I've ever owned!

    Sweet!! Hopefully I can actually find one...but that may be a very tall order.

    In one of the more idiotic moves I've made as a collector, I left a Riddler on the pegs as there were a bunch of other figures that I was buying from WM that day.

    Man, I'm soooo glad I didn't collect the Titans characters in this line.

    Sticking Beast Boy, one of my favorite characters, in the Exclusive Wave?

    Up yours Mattel. Up yours and the horse you rode in on.
    THE SPY. THE SPACEMAN. THE GODDESS. THE ROBOT. THE GORILLA.

    Atom and Riddler were really that scarce? I used to see 'em all the time. I don't recall any lately though. If I had known that I'd have picked a few up.

    Or am I just not awake enough to note the sarcasm yet?

    Well, like with many SW Walmart exclusives, this entire wave had spotty distribution with some areas never getting any at all.

    Well, with eBay prices in the $40 to $130 range for individual figures from this wave, and only about 40 or so auctions total at present, I'd say yes...these were really that scarce.
