3 3/4" sighting and hauls

Recommended Posts

 

 

After seeing the Ant-Man trailer, I'm really digging the suit. And hey, at least the 2.5" Ant-Man Hasbro makes will actually be in scale.

 

Always look on the bright side of life...

 

If life seems jolly rotten

There's something you've forgotten... :biggrin:

 

I found the Pop Vinyl Howard the Duck today, and I can't help but think that the body is perfect for a MU scale Howard. I just need to figure out what to use for a head.

 

 

 

 

 

What about an Ace Duck head from TMNT? Too big?

 

I also can't imagine there's not a Donald Duck PVC figure out there that would work as well with some mods.

I don't have Ace Duck, so I'm not sure if it will fit, but his head looks perfect. Thanks for the recommendation . And the Disney Store has a ton of PVC figures. I'll have to check for Donald.

I was at Target yesterday and they increased the price of our figures by $2. They are now $12.99 and all they have on the pegs are the first wave since they changed them to Marvel Infinite. This makes me sad.

Lack of articulation, higher prices. I am glad I have an excuse to stop wasting money on this line much less pay through the roof to get figures early from China/Ebay.

Been paying this much for years, guess it means NyC expect to pay 15-17 bucks per figure soon. Thought it was a anomaly what I paid for sandman variant, guess not.

Really weird how these aren't up for preorder yet.

To be fair, BBTS and EE don't have the new Legends up either. I know Dorkside does, but no one else seems to.

Considering Hasbro is focusing so much on Legends, that is even weirder.

My target had two pegs. One at 10.99 that had wave one of MI and one peg that was empty and read 12.99. Both were was marked "Marvel 3.75."

Don't they normally give some excuse for price raises.. like cost of oil (which has been lower than normal lately)

I feel like these price increases have nothing to do with costs but everything to do with profits.

Hey let's rise the price again.

Why? Because it's popular line and we can.

I know the cost of labor is rising dramatically as China's minimum wage keeps increasing, which is a good thing for the Chinese citizens.

New case up for pre order at BBTS. Looks like the price increase is here to stay.

 

 

I kind of hate myself for doing it.. but I did the preorder. There's enough figures in this wave that I want, that I don't want to have to try hunting.

(But I will say... I'm watching ebay auctions from China like a hawk and if I can get Sandman, Bishop and Blackcat for 15ish each, I'll call it a day and cancel the pre-order)

Cool! I'm glad to hear that the Bishop, etc. wave is finally up for order somewhere official. Now for me it's just the wait until it appears at HTS. I hope sales are strong so that the line continues beyond the Emma wave. Although the reduced articulation irks me, I really like the character selection lately.

I've spotted remnants of the "Guardians" wave in some local stores. I am pleasantly surprised to see that it's selling decently. Rocket, especially, seems to sell well around here. $10 for that poorly articulated, undersized, re-released figure and he's selling strong -- I never would've guessed it. Drax seems to be the real pegwarmer from that wave.

Does anyone have an extra Amazing Spiderman Green Goblin to sell?

Check Ross and the Disney Store. You should be able to find one for $5-6.

The Bishop wave still isn't up for sale at HTS. It's so annoying trying to collect these figures, even online. I'm sure Bishop and blue Beast will sell out quickly. At least Hasbro puts them up more than once, nowadays. I have to say, I'm as eager to get this set (well, except for Big Time Spidey), flaws and all, as I've been for any other wave. I'm actually really excited for the next set too... I can't wait to get Northstar.

That's why I just started pre ordering cases online at BBTS. Saves me the stress and gas money. I highly recommend doing it that way unless you really just enjoy the hunt

If I come across any, I'll grab you one. Being an employee there, I get first crack at the Marvel goodies...:)

I have it preordered from BBTS just in case, but it will be about $45 cheaper to get the whole set of nine and $65 cheaper to get the new figures from HTS.com vs. HTS.com. That's quite a discount!

I cancelled my BBTS preorder as soon as I saw that HTS is still selling them for 9.99 a figure. Since I sit in front of a pc every waking hour of my day, its not very difficult to get hold of online purchases. Hell I even managed to get hold of a Sony 20th anniversary PS4, so a bunch of $10 figures should be peanuts....right?

HTS can be unpredictable. They could go up at 2 am and sell out in 10 minutes. Or they could be up for months.

Yup, a total crapshoot.
