I've mentioned before, and have long been trying to quantify, my sliding scale for stuff: if I can get a comic/figure/movie/whatever for dirt cheap, in terms of enjoyment, it can get a few points towards a better grade than if I'd paid full price. A crappy comic for $4 is going to stay crappy, but I can wring some enjoyment out of it if it only cost a quarter. And for $20 a pop, these figures might be disappointing; but for five bucks each? Not bad at all!
These Batman v. Superman figures had been on the shelves for some time, but the Suicide Squad figures had only been there for maybe a month? Still, I think my local Wal-Mart had to clear space for the next batch of whatever. And for a quarter of the price, the Armored Batman isn't too shabby. The hair-piece on the Aquaman isn't securely glued on, though--like my old Kitty Pryde figure!
Neither of them have ears!
