3 3/4" sighting and hauls

With the lull in both the MU and movie lines, I finally gave in and ordered a pair of Avengers Light-Up Stand Black Widows off eBay for $12 a piece (plus free shipping!). I've always liked the classic black and gold version more than the silver, and that head really does look much better than the original single-pack version. As for the second one, I can always use it to make a custom blonde Black Widow or an X-Force Wolfsbane, plus the extra head will come in handy for a couple of other ideas I have.

Tons of Wave 17 in my area, still have never seen the newest comic waves (Gambit/Sinister, Warlock/Thanos, etc.) I'm beginning to think these things will never make it to my area and will have to resort to ebay scalper prices, which sucks.

 

nah, just be patient. If nothing else, I'm sure you can get the hook up from someone on here for price plus shipping, which still beats paying scalpers.

 

Speaking of scalpers, we got our tax refund back and I was tempted to get some things that I've never found for decent price since we have a little extra funds at the moment. But I found that I still couldn't get myself to pay a scalper.lol Even when I've got the money for something I want, I just can't get myself to pay someone way more than retail for it. So unless something finally hits around here our refund might actually last a little while longer.

I understand not pulling the trigger on ebay prices just to get a figure I want; I only really need to Gambit head and Mr Sinister and that's the main reason I have yet to bite the ebay bullet.

 

Yeah, I've held out this long and comic packs have never been hard to find in the past; this is the longest I've waited for specific figures to hit retail given the first sightings were reported back in December. Hopefully, these will eventually flood my area like Wave 17 has. (Tons of every figure in the wave on lots of pegs, especially Target.) Psylocke and Storm are the only MU figures I've picked up so far in 2012. I thought Archangel and Havok were running-changed to the "variants", but all I saw were the regular versions recently.

 

TRU also raised their MU single figures to $9.99 in my area, which sucks given these barely have accessories or even stands anymore. Feels like us MU collectors are being gouged even at retail now. The only thing good about the retail price increase is that the profit margin for scalpers is now a little smaller, so maybe they'll move on to a different line.

All I have left of those is Black Panther, thanks to Dragonkings! :)

 

I'd love to see a Wolfsbane. My Multiple Man is quite the lonely X-Factor member...

Each of them is like a miniaturized version of the Mighty Action Battlers released by hasbro, each comes with their own action feature...

 

Iron man has a button at his back that when pressed causes his arc reactor to light up and his left arm rises as if letting off a repulsor blast...

Captain America has a gear at his back that when turned makes his shield spin...

 

IMG_9362.jpg

 

Hulk has a lever at his back that enables him to do his hulk smash...

and Thor has this button on his back that enables him to throw his hammer...
