Oh there are a lot of collectors for sure, but just yesterday I saw a guy at the SR Target walking around with a stack of gamorean guards (spelling?) from the SW black series that must have just rolled out. Don't know what he was gonna do with all of them but regardless, if all the inventory is bought up then it leaves nothing for anyone else. I only ever buy one of each ML I want and leave the rest. Did see that Gladiator you mentioned.

Yea but again, Im not seeing anyone from SR selling Gamorean guards. He might have just been army building. That's a viable figure for that too. I guess with that one they could be trying to sit on it for later? I don't know SW exclusives too well these days.  I just know from toycon and such, this area is rough and with no Toys r Us now? Speaking of, no one sniped the cyke/dark phoenix two pack at TRU a year ago. It was in stock at TRU during toycon, so even that didn't get scalped, when the scalpers were literally down the street. Now though, this is a really hard time. Things were a little rough before, but this will be hard hunting days for sure.

For those that care, HasbroToyShop has listed all of the figures (except for Omega Red) from the Sauron BAF wave as "coming soon".

They added the page for Omega Red last night and all of them came in stock overnight. Unfortunately by the time I work up at 6:30 EST Wolverine, Omega Red, and Bishop were all OOS. The other three are still available as of 9:30 EST.

Seriously............

My Bishop figure should be on his way soon from BigBadToyStore. I am not good at taking photos of these. I just wanted to show the headswap with the Purple Haired head on the light blue body.

Magneto and purple Psylocke showed up yesterday from HTS. Today I hit up Target again and found the entire X Men wave. Grabbed Wolvie, Sabertooth, Storm, and black haired Psylocke. Skipped Multiple Man cause 2 out of the 3 heads had wacky eyes. All the others have impeccable paint jobs. 

Also nabbed 10th Ann. Iron Man.  GREAT DAY!!!

Is the 10th Anniversary  Stark/MKI 2 pack an exclusive? If so, whose? That's the only one unaccounted for.

It’s Walmart exclusive unfortunately.

My local Target in upstate NY restocked the new X-Men Apocalypse BAF wave and had the Killmonger/Ross & Falcon/Winter Soldier 2 packs on the shelves too. 

Stopped at Walgreens and saw nothing new.

Sauron Wave shipped out from BBTS yesterday.  I feel like it's the light at the end of the tunnel now that this and the Venom wave are shipping, a small break with less figures all streaming out will be nice.

Has anyone seen Thing or Surfer out in the wild yet?

Nope, I heard somewhere that September is the release, so I imagine they'll start showing up at the end of the month.

I still haven’t seen Mr Fantastic or Super Skrull.

Is Super Skrull actually out? I haven't even seen a reveal, besides pictures of it in Walgreens' database.

Super Skrull isn't even on the menu at this time.

I figured it wasn't, but I could have also missed it, thanks.

You're welcome, guys.

I placed an order for two (one for me, one for a friend-plus free shipping) and I already got a shipping notification for them!

On a related note, my Sauron BAF wave arrived today.

I'll wait till it actually hits my brick-n-mortars, or at least till they add the site-to-store feature.

    • I think the frustrating thing about Caliban, in addition to those you've mentioned in your post, is that IMO there's so many other BAF-sized characters that are worthy of this spot. After the "first" BAF Juggernaut from the Rogue wave, came Warlock from the Cyclops wave, then Apocalypse from the Psylocke wave (I feel like I'm missing other "X-men" Wave BAFs), throw in Sasquatch and Sauron and yet there's still other X-verse characters they could've done. Caliban would be way down on that list. Even then my preference is the thin Morlock version.   I think the one-two punch of *this* Caliban and *that* Wendigo for this year is doubly head-scratching. It's not like Hasbro didn't have enough time make new moulds for the much-requested Strong Guy to make his debut here. Instead we get a character that reuses their big buck with no new pieces and a reuse of the Sasquatch buck. But I can't complain too much since we're close to getting definitive versions of the Jim Lee era X-men. Avengers fans still don't have good comic-versions of Falcon and even their Captain America isn't perfect. In a way the MCU's X-menless universe kinda benefitted the Marvel Legend X-men comic fans in that regard.
    • Lol, you cats are going way back. I do have that Rogue and that Caliban and I cherish them both.  To be clear, I'm not a hater of Caliban in any way. He's just what I consider a "floater" in the entire Marvel Universe. There's just nothing solid or concrete about him. They've never really given him much of a back story. No one still really knows what his powers are. His size varies ridiculously. I know many characters' size really depends on the artist but after his initial power boost he was roughly about the size of Sabretooth but now, with no apparent change to his story or power set, other than temporary powers while serving as a horseman, he's suddenly a Hulk size character with still fairly unformidable abilities. If he'd been a single card figure in correct scale I woulda been super happy about it but this was a poor choice of character and inaccurate representation as a BAF. Especially since this figure seems to be based on his classic appearance wearing his original red & white uniform instead of his more modern appearance where his portrayed as much larger. If your gonna go for specific time sensitive looks of character at least get the stats correct.
    • Totally not dissing Power Slammers Rogue! I loved that thing! I've actually been trying to buy a Spat and Grovel fig off ebay. I'd like to think they (Spat especially) can fit in with Legends (?) Anyways to try to go back on topic, I'm really not a fan of the darker furs on Beast especially on his hands.
    • You can't diss Power Slammers Rogue, dude...it's like mugging the Pope! She's wearing purple!!! Like Prince!!!! And the butt on that figure too. Lordy! No wonder Gambit and Joseph were killing themselves over her... I was drooling for this figure for a full year, and it is a beautiful figure...just don't ever open it. If you did, you'd find it's 'kid friendly' (e.g. two points of limited articulation)...ol' Toy Biz had gigged the left arm and waist to flop around and be completely unposeable and put poor Rogue in one of the most awkward poses ever (second only to 7" high Onslaught Jean Grey) Plus, did no-one think: Rogue is super, superstrong and can fly - why does she need a football throwing machine to take down Magneto?  In case he brings his mutant dog? I think this wave (with an equally nutso spacesuit Gambit) pissed collectors off so much, Biz finally listened and moved away from the terrible gimmicks (spaceships, dinosaurs, um...squirting and shooting stuff) to a whole new realm of pure awesomeness: All-New X-Men box set, still unbeaten versions of Bishop and Shard, and loads of other cool X-Men, a Classic Avengers box, New Mutants, Most Wanted, Marvel Vs Capcom...and a whole slew of better, common scale, ball jointed, comic accurate figures. Some crazy character choices (man, were people pissed about Stegron), and some anomalies (Avengers got just four carded figures in about two years...cos back then no-one cared about the Avengers at all...toys or comics). Anyhoo, all that sowed the seeds for the Golden Age of Toy Biz Marvel Legends! Happy Days....anyone else miss the safer, saner mid to late 1990's? And, who's joining my campaign to lobby Hasbro for a new Spat & Grovel for 2020? It could happen! They did Spider-Ham, didn't they? 
    • On one hand I'm impressed. On the other, I kind of wish Hasbro had included recolored Venom hands. Every image I can find on Google, that face, he has long thing fingers with claw like nails. The Kingpin hands fit more with a skin tone face that isn't showing those teeth/fangs/razor blades or impaling food or whatever you want to call them.
