Update Sunday: There's another pre-sale for the whole set on eBay, "buy it now" for $9.99 plus $10 shipping. If you live outside the US where there might not be a promotion, here's your chance.
Update Monday: That one sold, of course. The next one up for sale is now at $14.99 plus shipping. Get 'em while they're hot!
Update Tuesday: Another quick sale. Fourth one is up for sale at $19.99 plus shipping. These are getting expensive, it's gone up $10 in two days! I guess the seller is seeing that there's a market for them if they sell via "buy it now" within hours of its listing. (No, I'm not the seller, by the way.) If you buy it because you saw it mentioned here, please leave a note in the comments.

Someone with apparently some inside knowledge has put up a Legion Happy Meal sneak preview on eBay. There will be eight figures in all: Superman, Timber Wolf, Lightning Lad, Mano, Tharok, Brainiac 5, Bouncing Boy, and Validus. Yes, that's 8 of the 9 main male characters of the Legion and Fatal Five minus all four women (Saturn Girl, Phantom Girl, Triplicate Girl, and Emerald Empress, plus the Persuader).

Update to add: On the other hand, these are still the first-ever figures for
