Blade

Electro

Guardian

Iron Fist

 

 

these are the only 4 MU figs missing from my collection... as someone said earlier, i hope these are re-released in future revisions.

 

on that note, Iron Fist (1st appearance) is being released in the CP with Power Man. IMO, that new Iron Fist is way better than the first release! can't wait for that CP to drop.

Yeah I love the 70's big collars they both have. That's a definite buy.

I told the story a few days ago about how I went to a Walmart and they had the GB sticker but no figs. I asked a guy and he took my number and told me he'd call when they got in. He was really nice but in my head I was saying, "There's no way he'll actually call". I'll be damned if I didn't just get a call from him saying that there are 2 of each on the shelf. Bad news is I already picked them up at a different Walmart that same day. So if anybody is in the Hollywood, FL area go now!

Heh, I actually bought Guardian and Electro out of desperation for cool figures.... both pegwarmed here til I grabbed em.

My area hasn't had anything new in MONTHS. No Star Wars or MU. Just a lot of Clone Troopers and Iron Men clogging the shelves... but today I was surprised that Target actually had put out a revision case of MU. I already had most of them, but I DID get a Bullseye (one of the few early figures I never had). Thanos was already gone of course :(

The fine print on the rules was a bit disconcerting:

 

1 Grand Prize (16 figures plus props)

1 Runner-Up (11 figures plus props)

1 "Bronze" Award (7 figures plus prop)

10 "Lucky" Winners (a single, lonely $8 prop)

 

If you aren't one of the three big prize winners, you pretty much miss out on all of the cool stuff.

6. Winner Notification and Acceptance. Winners will be notified on or about May 2, 2011, at the telephone number, email address and/or U.S. Mail address provided on winner’s entry form. Sponsor will call during regular business hours at number provided on entry form and will leave no messages. Failure to reach winner by phone may result in disqualification of winner, forfeiture of his or her interest in all prizes, and selection of a substitute winner from among all remaining eligible entries.

 

 

yeah, I gotta call Bullsh** on that one part of the disclaimer for the contest.

 

If they have a address to mail to and a E-mail why do they have to speak to you in person to give you a prize?

 

Kinda negates my registration.... I can give one of my e-mails, and i don't care about the junk mail companies they sell my information to but Bothering by phone and most likely by telemarketers they sell my information too....eh that's a big one.

Plus if they can't reach you, they won't leave a message and disqualify you, WHY THE Freck do they actually need to talk to you?

wouldn't a e-mail and /or a package in the mail be just as affective?

Got my first set of these the evening of April 10, thanks to the post by fellow board member ThevillainNxk. Went out that evening to the local wally, and there were none on the shelves. went to find an employee to help me with the barcode, found a couple in paint. Gave them the upc, and they said the store had two, but there was no location listed so they should be on the floor. While they were going through a few gyrations with the scanning gun, I noticed a dolly with boxes on it behind the paint counter. I saw one with hasbro markings and asked them what it was. The one employee said "wouldn't that be funny if that was it"! Sure enouigh, he moves some boxes, I see Marvel Giant Battles Pack wv1. I said "Thats it"! Total luck score. They said there are more on order, check back in a few days. So after this, I start stalking all the local wally's, and the results were futile: All the stores either showed nothing there, but some on order, or more annoying, "we have four", or "we have two", but "we can't locate them". I was really feelling the fix was in with the local collectors, or scalpers, b/c these weren't hitting the shelves. I called almost all of them every day, and stopped into many with no luck. Yesterday, I was driving across town to help my brother move, and was driving by one of the wally's I had called the night before, they had said "we have none". On a whim, I crossed two lanes and shot in. Went to the toy aisle, and saw the usual thor and spidey lines......but NO MU! I thought wtf! None at all. No pegs or anything, just don't carry the line. I turn and walk out, grumbling to myself about the stupidity of it, and I notice on the bottom shelf to the right TWO SETS OF GB PACKS! Couldn't beleive my luck. Snagged both Frosty's (which allowed me to open my first one last night (so excellent), and keep one moc, and give the other to my uncle for christmas. I won't open the Bill, so I have my one moc). So happy to be done with this hunt. Bring on wave 13!

 

For any fellow Macomb, Wayne, Oakland county Michigan board members (I know your out there!), there are two Bill Fosters at the wally on Van Dyke and 14 mile, at least as of 730 yest morn. Would have posted earlier, but the move was an all day thing that rolled right into my son's birthday party. Good luck everyone!

hey fellas - new to the forum...

 

wondercon haul: nycc archangel, deathmask angel, variant warpath, clear vision, and a bunch of toybiz prelegends to use as stand ins like caliban, nimrod, etc. also got the avengers set for giant man, wasp, ant-man as stand ins as well...

 

question, i got two phasing visions. one was clear and glossy and the other one was clear also but done in a flat, matte-like finish. i paid more for the matte one. anyone know any info on these?

 

one more thing, i saw so many people passing up on a long haired winter soldier at the con. he was going for $25 but no one wanted to pull the trigger but collectors would talk amongst themselves asking if 'it was a good price'. is he still rare?

I had one like this. The difference was that one had the final coat put on, while the other did not. The one without the matte finish is basically a pre-production edition.

He could be, but the movie version blows him away. Can't see why anyone would really want him with the new one coming out.

I really hope Wal-Mart doesn't get another exclusive ever again. It's been absolutely frustrating calling up each store and asking them to look up the item number. Each time they ask me what I'm looking for when I offer to give them the item number. Then I explain what I want and I get things like "Marvel University" and "huh?". That's why I offered to give you the item number in the first place, so you can type it in your computer and see whether you have it or not! It's supposed to be simple. I don't want to waste gas going somewhere for nothing.

 

Anyway, I guess if you call Walmart customer service, they can pull up the store inventory in your area and tell you whether they have it or not. Problem is that they only work Monday - Friday. I'll keep crossing my fingers that this works out.

 

I went to Target this morning and they stocked a fresh revision case. Nothing else of interest. The pegs were fully-packed, so I think if the new wave comes this week, it won't hit that store. Seeing a ton of new stuff come out is exciting though.

I bought the clor/bill foster and loki frost giant. I opened them and I like them but I cant seem to make them work with my collection. Its hard to explain. I am thinking about either trading them or putting them on ebay. There are a few figures I am looking for that I like more than these so I will try and pcik them up.
