Thanks to FB, my Alfred figure arrived yesterday. I combined the Bat-Signal, but maybe using my tv remote control batteries is generating insufficient electricity to get it to work, so I'll be purchasing some new batteries this evening. I've read several posts about the "hidden" button underneath it, but even pressing that didn't ignite the signal. I'll see whether the thing works at all later tonight.
Apart from that, I finally got around to opening the Matty Black Friday/Cyber Monday boxes (first day of winter break gift) and two of the five final JLU sets I ordered came with severely bent cards. That doesn't concern me much, though, as the figures are intact. I didn't want to pay $30 for each set, much less the higher price for the 7-pack. Getting them all at substantially reduced rates was acceptable, though. I don't think I'll be paying the full price for the last of the final three packs on Monday's sale. I suspect it will eventually be offered for discounted prices. If it isn't, its loss won't mean that much to me.
