Bloody Girlfriends. :) I'll have to check next time. I'd imagine unless the packaging was significantly different, the typical employee may dump em in with the Marvel ones.

Had two big cardboard displays of these crammed next to each other on a sidekick at my Wal-Mart. No major packaging difference, but DC and Marvel were separate.

I checked my local Wally World... And they only had Marvel Heroics out... But in a new transparent plastic tower, with carboard header box. Interesting.
I will keep my eyes open for these.

Whoah! Those cars are so cool looking! There is a lot of retro in them, and remind me of the old hero cars that used to be advertised in the comics back in the day. :)

The LED figs are just meh.

I just picked up seven of these, and HELL YEAH, got the chase Superman... the black suit, Earth-2 Supes. He came in a purple orb.

I also got two cape-down Batmen (blue orb), two Jokers (yellow orbs), Martian Manhunter (white orb) and a cape-up Batman in a red orb.

Let the code cracking begin.

TThey have these here which surprised me cause the marvel ones were tough to find. I bought one of each color and here were its contents.

So, Green Lantern is in the green orbs, Flash and Martian Manhunter in white, Alt Supes in purple, Joker in yellow, cape-up Bats in red, cape-down Bats in blue.

I would bet that the alt Flash offered, is Professor Zoom. I am also willing to bet that the Alt Supes is the DC equivalent of Red Hulk, and Zoom is the rarer of the alternate offerings.

Found the tubes today as well.

I got pretty much the same.

White - Flash
Yellow - Joker
Red - Batman CU
Blue - Batman CD
Green - Green Lantern (how odd)
Purple - Superman (I shall dub thee Flex Punch!) :p

I really like these, especially Joker. So you say Manhunter is White, and Black Supes is Purple. Crud, that means finding a black supes means you will have to find probably 100 normal supes first. Now which colors do the Zoom and alt Supes come in?

And, by the way, since they put out the tube endcaps, I have yet to find a Red Hulk in the Marvel orbs.

Really? Did you check the entire tube? You have me curious enough to check them next time I'm there. There is still half a box of them on another ailse too.

I should probably try to get a hold of one of those diplay tubes if they ever get close to being emptied!

I did not check the entire tube. The top was sealed, and the tube was damn near full, making sifting through them impossible.

Well the top just has some tape holding it down I think. The Cardboard was popped open on the DC tube I found, so I just sifted through the bottom and chunked them back into the top. You should check the top of your tubes, and if it's sealed pop it open yourself maybe.

Well, I thought I had grabbed 3 or 4 DC orbs, but I guess I overlooked that some Marvels snuck in there.

Fortunately for me I didn't have to buy 100 Purple orbs to find Black Supes. Someone had popped a purple open and threw it back in the tube, and guess who was sitting there waiting for me! :) Also found a MM, who is pretty darn rad.

Excited for tonight, I bought a D.C. Heroic for the couple of guys I work with. Of course I bought me one and then I bought me an extra one to open in the car. It was the Martian Manhunter, score.

Reverse Flash is in the White orbs. Seems to be about 3 to 1 between flash and reverse flash, add in MM, and theres probably a 1 in 5 chance you will get one.

We need to set up a Code graph or something for package variations for both lines.

IE:

Large Feeder-
Blue=Batman(St)
Green= Green Lantern
Yellow= Joker
Red= Batman (Ju)etc....etc...

URS, I agree. I have already caught several variations on the packaging in the Marvel feeder tubes, from the old boxes that were out around Christmas time.
There was also a discrepancy between the Walmart feeder boxes, and the Dollar Tree feeder boxes.
