3 3/4" sighting and hauls

Awesome!!! Still on the fence about this set

Earlier this week I stopped by the closest Target and picked up a Spidey/Shocker set. Unfortunately, the Spidey figure has weird blotch on his thigh -- looks to be more from the mold than the paint application.

I then stopped by Toys r Us for the heck of it, and was surprised to see that the Morbius/Quasar wave has finally (!) arrived in my area. It was pretty cool to find the Rogue figure (the only one I'm missing from the wave) in a store. In-hand, her mohawk doesn't bother me as much as it did in all of the pics, but it is still pretty annoying, especially since otherwise it would have been a really nice figure. If the line continues, I really hope that someone else will take over at Hasbro -- this past year Bobby's overall performance has been pretty lacking in terms of design decisions and overall quality control.

Any customizers here familiar with Zag Toys Domez? I've got some Shadow Heartless from their Kingdom Hearts line that I'm trying to cut from the bases. My X-Acto knife isn't doing the job and I don't want to force it and rip through their feet. Any ideas for getting them off the base?

 

 

*edit*

 

Nevermind, I managed to cut through them. A bit like using a butter knife on concrete, but it worked out eventually.

Sorry for the double post, but does anyone here want a 6" Yondu? I bought it for the arrow and don't need the actual figure. $15 shipped.

Another collector ditches their collection.

And I score my second Death Archangel variant figure for only $32.00, including shipping.

Now if I could ever find that Giant Man set for a decent price.....

saw the gotg set at tru today. $50 is just way too much for such a lackluster effort

That sucks, because $50 would be a great price if they'd done anything worth a #$## with it. But then again, maybe that's there acknowledgement that the set is a waste- and not only that, they only got it into stores a month after Guardians came out. On point.

Not Marvel, but I thought I'd share. With the new wave of 3.75" SW Black Series figures on the horizon, I've been checking BrickSeek pretty religiously in the hopes that they'll restock something besides the Phasma wave. Most of the Walmarts have been consistent at 20-40ish figures but one store just jumped up to 270. No, not a typo. 270 figures. I hauled ass over there hoping to score some Tuskens or Sandtroopers (or ERGs if I was really lucky). They had maybe 30 on the shelves, all from the Phasma wave.

 

I asked someone to manually check and they said they do in fact have 270 on hand, but they won't pull more until the shelves empty first. He wouldn't pull any cases to let me look, nor would he tell me wave number was written on the side of the cases. I'm going to keep checking back in the hopes that I can find a different employee.

 

On an entirely unrelated note, does anyone know what would happen to a customer that just happened to hop in the back room and look through pallets? Assuming of course that said customer paid for the figures? Purely hypothetically of course :biggrin:

They'd be escorted out of the store, possibly charged with trespassing.

 

Now, if you got me a couple of the figures I need from those cases, I might be inclined to help you post bail.

Only new figures I found were the 6 inch ML Guardians Wave with the New Death's Head II.

And the 6 inch Homecoming Spiderman 2 packs...

 

NOTHING 4 inch,

 

Maybe go back and grab a Death's Head II for my Transformers shelf.

It would be nice if they did a classic Death's Head in the 6" line so we could have one that's more accurately scaled to MU

New wave is up for preorder on BBTS with an expected release for July.

If these ever hit stores I foresee lots and lots of gold Ultrons clogging the shelves. :(

Weird... they pulled the last wave, but this one is now available for preorder.

As far as Ultron goes, I can see him selling fine. It has been awhile since he was last re-released, plus this is a variant.

Was just coming here to post this. Weird that they went up on a Saturday. Maybe it's because they were dated for 7/1? I'm very happy to see that this wasn't cancelled.

I actually want all 5 figures but 19 bucks for each, come on now!!

It's definitely a bummer and it prevents me from army building Goldtron, but at least we're finally getting Jessica Jones and a decent Magneto. But this is likely my fault. I was just mentioning to a friend that I really wished this wave would make it out and that I'd be willing to pay a few bucks extra. The universe is making an honest man out of me. Sorry guys.

Was Gold Ultron a unique character or was there a bunch of them?

I can't remember if there's actually an army of them in the Age Of Ultron story, but the cover art for some of the issues does show a bunch of gold Ultrons ganging up on various heroes.

Yep. Those figs are simply not worth retail let alone 80% mark-up.

I bought the Titan Heroes Sandman last night just to see how he'd look with 3.75" figures. I had no idea the Titan Heroes have more than 5 poa. He needs elbows and knees, but he's not half bad and it was an easy impulse buy at $7. I don't expect them to get too deep into character selection, but I wouldn't mind Dormammu in this line. This would also be a cost efficient way to army build Sentinels too.

Titan Heroes actually has a pretty good depth in terms of character selection- maybe even better than what we're getting these days.
