3 3/4" sighting and hauls

Recommended Posts

EF went for 152 bucks. That's nearly £100! They will b out in a couple of weeks! That same seller sold three of those for 25 bucks each Friday night.

It annoys me that people pay such ridiculous prices for things. It just inflates the market. I haven't been able to find a Death's Head Archangel or Astral Dr. Strange for under $40 (including shipping) on Ebay yet. To me, $40 is not at all a good price on a $10 item that came out only a few years ago.

On a positive note, my Ant-man SDCC sets came yesterday. The next-to-smallest Ant-man figure I found really disappointing -- no face at all. Not even painted on eye spots or anything. Lame, Hasbro. On the other hand, the big Giant-man figure is very cool.

I remember when the Strange wave was hitting and all I could find were Astral Strange's. It drove me nuts because I really wanted the plain version more. I only bought one Astral figure, but boy if I knew then what I know now...

I haven't even seen the wave solicited for pre-order let alone packaged. I'm actually kind of concerned.

I know wot u meen Thor-El. I'm kinda wishing I got the ones I wanted loose from eBay. Have they ever got this far in to production then cancelled them? Hopefully we will have some news early next week. Maybe dracos will know some thing.

I noticed that the Hawkeye and Falcon TRU 2-pack is available on TRU's website. Might pick it up for the sort of accurate Falcon (even though I have the Winter Soldier figure).

I think they are coming. If they are being sold loose on Ebay then its a matter of weeks.

I think what surprises me is that typically by the time loose figures show up on eBay, we've had them pre-ordered for a few weeks at least. The lateness of their appearance surprises me.

 

I can survive without the others but Northstar is an absolute must.

I ordered them as soon as they appeared. My package cleared through New York Customs yesterday so hopefully they'll arrive tomorrow if not Tuesday. So glad to finally have Emma and Northstar.

I can't wait until I can finally, finally add Northstar to my collection! I have to say, this is the coolest wave for me since that Valkyrie/Deathlok wave last year. Now if Hasbro would just give me the rest of Alpha Flight (and the New Mutants).....

I agree Dracos! This will be one of the coolest waves since the Cyclops wave last year, although I was super excited about Bishop but hey I'm a Bishop enthusiast

Bishop wave was great cause of bishop and beast

But best wave that has come out since the rebranding is imo was the cyclops deathlock wave

I agree, the best wave after the rebranding, with the best amount of figures per variety, per quality was the wave with Ares, Cyclops, Deathlok, Valkyrie, Ant Man and Omega red? I think?

Yup, even the re-packed Omega Red was awesome for me, because I hadn't been able to score him even though I did a lot of shopping around and kept trying and trying to buy him on Hasbro's site. My fav wave before that was the one that gave us Nighthawk (still a fav figure), Hercules, Nova, Puck and Angel.

No need to be defensive about the Bishop figure, QthaGreat. He's a major character and I think that the figure -- while not perfect -- really looks cool. I was also very excited to add him to my collection, even though he's not at all one of my fav X-men. Heck, that whole wave was actually pretty cool, even with the reduced articulation.

Three years of waiting over. Though it was sort of ironic that I had an extra three days waiting after the package cleared customs. It was literally an hour away from me for the past few days. But at last! Emma Frost!:

The new Chameleon body is awful, but it'll work for Osborne. And I was able to replace the head on custom Chameleon I'd bought so yay:

So for those of you worried about the new Star Wars line, your fears are justified. Pics leaked of a bunch of carded figures and they're all 5 POA. I got out of the SW game in 2010 (after collecting since '95), but I would have snagged Revan...I mean Kylo Ren in a heartbeat. Not now...

wedge: It's not certain. There was the Wal*Mart planogram but employees apparently plugged the UPC in and it's the current Black Series. So either Hasbro is continuing Black series and adding TFA (sadly likely knowing them) or they are just the old figures soon to be phased out. I'm hopeful since there is still a Ceremony Leia in limbo that they are just going to add some TFA into Black Series 3 3/4 and that'll be it.

 

However, even if that is the case, this is still the red headed stepchild of the line instead of what was once the centerpiece. And that's just depressing.

 

Emma and Northstar feel like the true end of an era now that I have them in hand. And it's highlighted by how awful Chameleon is. I kept saying Emma and done and I am seriously thinking that may be the case, especially if this is the future Hasbro is forcing on us.
