Toy News International:
All new 2-packs of best-selling, previously-released DCUC figures available only at Walmart! Just like all other previous 2-packs, these packs contain figures and accessories only, not the Collect and Connect™ figure parts. Packs include Gentleman Ghost/Hawkgirl, and Superman/Parasite.
Considering that I have never seen Hawkgirl nor the Gentleman Ghost in person, and both command fairly large prices on eBay (much more than I am going to pay for an action figure), this two-pack is like from toy heaven. It doesn't even look like they have been repainted either, just repackaged. The name makes me smile as well -- "Fates Intertwined," indeed, if you remember the Gentleman Ghost story from early in Volume 4.
For what it's worth, I am really tempted by the Superman/Parasite set as well. Parasite is a great mid-card Superfoe, and I don't have a modern Superman toy.
I will definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for these two in the coming weeks!
