SP//DR wave back up at HTS

The Infinity Guantlet Replica is in stock as well. Can't use the AMERICA discount for any of them though. So ridiculous.

I just ordered four of the seven SP/DR wave from HTS and the AMERICA discount code worked when typed it in at check-out.  Plus i was able to get free shipping.    Thought about ordering all of them since they were all in stock, but I am hoping to get the balance of the wave at retail.  

And I found the Lizard wave at Walmart yesterday.  They had all of them except (of course) Mysterio.  I am in SE MI.  Still no Silver Surfer at Walgreen's either.  I even e-mailed from the website asking about availability and they responded that they didn't know when it would be in-store.  I did the same thing with the first appearance Daredevil a few years ago and they told me exactly when it would be at retail and they were spot on.

Found the remnants of the X-Men wave at Walgreens up here. Picked up Multiple Man.

 

Edit: went to another Walgreens by me and a guy in line had the Wolvie. Just missed it :(

Got home today and had two Wolverine and a Gladiator waiting for me from HTS. Wolverine is absolutely amazing and have now decided to purchase two more. Gladiator is a fine looking figure as well and big fan of the blue highlights in his hair, like this version a whole lot more than the SDCC version. The rest of the wave should ship for me next week.

Anyone have any luck getting the code to work?

Randomly checked the HTS website just now and noticed all of the ML figures (at least the ones I checked) now read "Item is excluded from any promotions".

And for anyone who also collects SW, the exclusion policy has also appeared there, but it seems more targeted to the items people actually want (TBS 4-LOM, TVC Hoth Trooper), and not the pegwarming stuff (everything Force Link, TBS everything Solo / TLJ, TVC non-Hoth Trooper)

This needs to be done in more areas! I found several of this very wave with the B.A.F piece missing and in 2 of the 4 found, the figure was replaced with something else.

Agreed. With distribution at an all-time low-point, scalping at an all-time high, and the worst scalpers being "legitimate etailers," the modern collector has enough to contend with without having to compete with shoplifters, repackagers, barcode switchers and whatever other ways steaming piles of human feces can find to make life difficult for honest people.

Seeing reports of the Deadpool Sauron wave hitting Target shelves out in CA. LMK if anyone finds them on the East Coast.

IDK about Cali or the East Coast, but here in Central Arkansas, I'm finding sweet fanny. Normally, I'd chalk it up to it still being fairly early in the release process, but I had similar luck with Infinity War and Black Panther before that.

I can find Solo and Wrestler figures out the wazzoo, but anything else, I might as well be shopping for "! Love Trump" T-shirts.

Yeah, the scalpers have a field day with ML in particular around here. Almost ruins an otherwise fun hobby for me. Almost.

Picked up a case of the Apocalypse wave at a Target in San Jose CA yesterday morning.  I actually thought it was the Warlock wave so I had the worker open it up for a Cyclops.

Just got this haul today, got everything i wanted from these waves except Scarlet Spider sadly, but the store i went to (EB Games) had everything except Scarlet Spider and Magneto (which i would have bought) and i passed on Psylocke because i pre-ordered her and i am hoping for the Purple hair variant, the one they had was the black hair.

Linden, NJ Walgreens-Mart.  

They had everyone except Cyclops and Colossus.  I doubt those even made it out of the Back. 

They also have the Thanos BaF wave, without IronSpider, of course.

I kinda want to have both. Swap heads between them and see which one looks better. The Purple Hair Psylocke on the blue outfit body or leave it on the more darker version.

    • Good to see you back in the game Cobra. Nothin' like a good ole SDCC to bring the gang back together, right. Ya, me and Rukk put our differences aside & realized we have a greater cause to fight: The prevention of the TAKOVER of one of the best American toy lines in history by changing everone's favorite comic action figures to ACTOR FIGURES. Again, I like figures based on movies as much as any comic fan, buuuuut we are a long way from one Tom Jane Punisher or Ben Affeck DD mixed in every once in a while to the unrivaled HORRAAAH that was the Black Panther wave(s) and Infinity War waves. What's happening to our ML? All levity aside (sorry Tarot), I personally think it's a mixture the whole 10 year anniversary thing and the end of the modern Avengers movie arch as we know it. As we all know, the actors are starting to get up there in age & tho it seems RDJ is okay to be Tony Stark in every damn movie for the rest of his life, most of the other actors (specifically the Chris's) are ready to throw in the towel. So with the future uncertain at this point, I think this is Hasbro & Marvel's last hooorah to milk as much Hollywood based merch out of the line as possible. Now, much like the BP movie, the Cap Marvel movie is starting to look a lot more appealing than it previously had, but the sad truth is this Cap simply does not have the chops to carry the next phase, no matter how much Marvel wants her to. Marvel Stdios does get it wrong every once in a while (Inhumans anyone?) And this will be one of those times. This is where the reacquisition of the Fox properties come in to play. Thank you God, for X-Men & F4, returning home. Captain Marvel & Spider-Man will bridge the gap just long enough for those "Unnamed Projects" to be turned to new reboots of both franchises. And baby I'm sooooo excited to see what Marvel Studios does with these guys. I expect their versions of Apocalypse and Doctor Doom to wipe the terrible taste of the last one out of our moth completely. As for what this will mean for the toy lines, we'll I expect that the be one part awesome and two part nefarious. First off I think this will free the Avengers based waves from movie figure hell. Meaning since Cap, IM & the Avengers still remain a major part of the Marvel brand, ML should still have waves based on them without the need for further actor figures & we start to get a lot of those comic figures we've so desperately been pining for, and maybe we will get all the comic versions of the newly restored Avengers that we most definitely need. How many of these waves a year they could squeeze in per year remains to be seen, though one comic Avengers wave & one each IM & Cap wave per year does not seem outta the question, similar to the one X-Men & 2 Deadpool we recieved this year. The Avengers & Captain America waves of the future could be what the X-Men & Deadpool waves are currently: pure comic figure nirvana. Basically, I see the Avengers & X-Men changing roles, tho it does give one pause that the Iron Man movie arch has been over for 5 years & we still haven't had a comic based wave yet, but maybe that has something to do with the actors movie contracts. Yes, that means the X-Men & F4 waves will all eventually be over run with MCU figures one day & though it will be bliss for MCU collectors who would love nothing more than to have all the repetetive actor figures their little hearts desire, us Comic figure fans will suffer for any crumbs they will throw at us. The bright side of that is it looks like the creative team is doing everything in its limited power to try & get us as many Comic based X-figures as possible before that happens. We've already gotten damn near perfect versions of the F4 and I'm almost certain a new Doctor Doom & Kang will follow the Super Skull sometime in the near future. So I'm keeping a positive outlook. This would be a subject I would like to touch apon at this year's SDCC, but alas, I fear this is something that's a few years off and though it would make perfect sense (in a sensible world) the suits at both Hasbro & Disney are as unpredictable as a Walking Dead season premiere. On other fronts, I think the 4 & 12 inch lines are toast. Initially I did not like the 4" line but as they got better I grew to like them & even tracked down all the older figs I missed. Best part about them: NO FREAKIN' MOVIE FIGURES! Ultmately, with the resources and focus on the reignition of the ML line the distribution & quality & articulation of the 4" line suffered & I don't foresee a full return to glory other than exclusives or special products similar to the Gamestop Rainbowpool set. Sad story. I really liked the assortments and the fact that they dared to let the worlds of the Avengers & X-Men intermingle. As far as the 12" I just think it never caught on. I think it was too much too fast. As much care as they put into detail, they ignored as much in scale. Deadpool was the same size as Spidey as Daredevil and some of the head sculpts were way too big. The only ones I ever bought were on clearance and from what I saw they all eventually ended up in clearance. Honestly, to be rid of them would take some burden off my wallet. As good and as large some of them were, that price point was a hell of a stretch for me.
