Oh cool. I can usually find some gems at decent prices at this con, as I collect various lines.

Did a Walgreens run today too. No Torch in the area yet. I'm sure soon or all the scalpers scooped 'em up for the convention.

 
Well they didnt hit TRU. SR has dark phoenix 2-packs, about 3 or 4 floating around, some in wrong places. Picked one up. Really surprised with all the scalpers in the area they didnt send a scout to TRU to get them all. They probably are otw there now as the con is wrapping up.
 
I hit the con, you might have seen me, tall dude in probably the only yellow start fleet uniform. Saw lots of red/blue I was one yellow one. I nabbed a man-thing BAF for 40 which was nice.
Yeah I hit that booth up about 3 different times lol. Saw the bafs they had out but passed. Bought a loose Blade (minus the baf part) and a couple of wrestling figs I've been after.

Kinda dissapointed at the Marvel showing in general this year. Mostly Thor wave and Netflix. Was hoping to see some exclusives (not super marked up) and some older waves, but no such luck. Seeing Torch and Black Panther was cool but everyone had em marked up too high.

Too many people lol, I can't say if I saw you or not! I was wearing a black ballcap and backpack.

Ok so I've been here a long while just always dealt with the 3.75 since it was universe.
As of last night I decided to take the plunge into marvel legends 6". 8 bought the juggernaut X-Men wave from bbts,and the marvel knights wave minus bullseye off hts
So I want to start getting the movie figures and X-Men, figure I might branch off more into comics type as I get farther along.
Question want to start building the avengers from aou, and civil war. Where is a good place to start?

Hey I remember you. You were a big contributer on the MU board. Welcome to the Legends 6 world.

To answer your question, Legends waves kind of have a mixture of both movie and comic characters, so you may have to just do some investigating to round out the collection. I'm primarily a comic version collector but Hasbro's new actor face scan tech is legit.

I ordered yesterday and they sent me email that they shipped it. I called customer service and was issued a refund for the difference. Gotta love a sale where you can actually get the item and it not be "unavailable" or "out of stock" (Human Torch is now out of stock online by the way).

Not a Hasbro shill but For $20 we get a lot. People expect $50+ quality in these figures.

Yeah. I started out collecting MU but moved to ML and eventually sold all my MU stuff. The original MU figures looked great in package, but once I opened them it made me sad that so many of them looked like they had polio with wonky legs and knee joints. Occasionally you get some bad paint ops with ML just like any line, but the figures themselves are quality items and the BAFs are addicting!

 

And in actual "Sightings & Hauls" news, I found a few more Human Torches at another NYC-UWS Duane Reade, so if any locals missed the online sale check your friendly neighborhood DRs this week.

I wouldn't exactly call it incessant complaining, but this is a place where we can express our opinions & can feel like it has a fairly good chance of being heard.I think the reason it seems that there's so much complaining is because most complaints are a pretty divisive subject between people of opposing opinions & they almost always spark a dialogue.

I will say I'm probably one of the bigger "complainers" here but I also am a huge proponent for Hasbro and what they've done with the line, especially since the Infinite remodel started, but there are sometimes things that happen that I feel the need to vent over. Such was the case with the Vulture Wings BA(wt)F and, more recently, the waste of a roster spot in the once a year X-wave & much touted "best X-wave ever" with a retread non-mutant character like Gladiator who woulda been more suited for an Infinity War wave. Yet, I would say my favorable comments versus unfavorable are about 4 to 1.

If you really look think about it, someone could praise Hasbro & ML all day & get little to no response, but negative expression usually gets debate going. That's just the way of the world. I personally enjoy pointing out issues, if only to at least get opposing opinions & ideas. Some of the best advancements often result from strong opposition.
