Marvel Legends Sightings and Hauls thread

Recommended Posts

Yep, 'bout what I thought. Actually works out well for me. I'll have another pay day to add to the kitty before then, plus a pay day the second day after to help with recovery.

jealous! been checking multiple game stops per day.....they look at me funny when i ask about marvel legends

Only the gamestops that are considered collectible stores are getting the mk legends

how is this determined???
Call gamestop and ask them which one in your area is considered the collectible store. Not all gamestops are. There are about ten in my area but only one is a collectible store.

Forbidden Planet in NYC has at least two cases of the Marvel Knights wave on the shelf and they look great but I passed at $24.99 each. Will wait for HTS...

TRU has put up Thor:Ragnarok figs; Thor, Loki and Hela as well as the Thor/Hulk & Enchantress/Executioner (or Skurge. I think they're frowning on the word "executioner). Nothing in stock on any as yet so no "order online" or "store pickup".

Has anyone found the Netflix wave anywhere but Gamestop? All the Gamestops in my area have sold out and I'm only trying to find Blade and Bullseye....

Damn street dates!!!

 

So I go to one TRU in Queens NY today at the time they open and there's nothing new on the pegs. I then head to a second, further TRU, and find MCU Thor and Loki, nothing else. I go to customer service and ask if he has anymore in stock, he scans and notices the street date but I say I found it on the pegs, so he goes to get more. While I'm waiting, another guy in a Venom logo t-shirt (do you post here bro? Good score!) rolls up with the other 6 from the case and buys them all. The cashier gets an override from the manager to sell the wave to this guy. The guy also shows the cashier a picture of the pegs, which had $14.99 stickers on them for the Legends sale that ended on 7/22, so she overrode the prices to 14.99 on his whole wave.

 

The guy looking in the back for me, walkies the cashier to tell her that he's coming back with my Legends. The manager replies on the walkie that they're done with Legends for today, and doesn't let the guy get me any more from the back. I tried to fight it, since I just watched this other guy buy the whole wave. But Manager said he's honoring what was mistakenly placed on the pegs for customers but what's in the back can't be sold until the release date. Damn! So I bought Thor and Loki at 14.99, at least I got them! And at a discount, which alleviates SOME of my frustration.

 

And if you post here Mr. Venom T-Shirt Dude, good score, and I tip my hat to you!

Haha, good story. I imagine most toy stores hate collectors.

There just better be a damn beautiful presentation of Thor product at Toys R Us on 8/1 with huge marketing images and multiple cases filling the pegs, because I imagine that launches are the only reason to hold product for street dates, to protect inventory for major presentation launches. Otherwise just let me buy my toys.

Just got a e-mail from Kapowtoys that My human Torch is one the way. That mean it will be out in store in a month or 2.

Interesting find today...

 

I went out to Toys R Us in a vain hope to find anything - the Spider-Man Homecoming 2 Pack with Iron Man, any Ragnarok figures, or maybe even divine intervention to see an A Force set out in the stores.

 

No luck on any of that.

 

So having seen some posts that people have found Ragnarok legends at Walgreens I decided to make a stop.

 

No Ragnarok figures, but at the far end of the toy aisle they had Punishers and Yellow Daredevils with a $5 sticker on them.

I went to another Walgreens and they just had a single Yellow Daredevil at full price, so it must be up to individual manager's discretion on when they clearance these. The ones I picked up had a $7 sticker that I could see under the $5 sticker, so they must have been languishing for a while.

 

I never had a huge need for the Punisher so I'm glad I waited. The second one is planned for custom fodder.

Love the A-Force set!

 

Had to do a little hot-water therapy to fix a severely bent leg on Singularity, but otherwise entirely worth the money/trouble to get hold of.

 

A good thing to. It took away some of the sting of an otherwise fruitless hunt yesterday. Nothing new at my closest TRU, though they had restocked the Evolution Groots. Ditto the Walmart where I used to live. Although I am somewhat hopeful. The Legends they had were all pretty severely marked down leading me to believe they may be getting ready for the new stuff coming in August.

Managed to get a hold of a second Adam Warlock yesterday to display as the Magus full time! I was so pumped, it was funny because the employee at FYE asked me where I had found that, with a hint of perhaps disappointment. I don't always hunt at FYE for ML but they do sometimes have some of the rare ones on the pegs if you get lucky, I guess lower traffic than most other collectibles spots.

Thor Ragnarok wave is shipping from BBTS. Loki arrived today, probably the only one I really want from this wave. But it's a great figure!

Got the Homecoming wave in yesterday. The Vulture with his wings is highly impressive in person! As for web wings Spidey, I lost one already attempting to pose him gliding!
