I missed it. Dizzamn

 

 

Me too. I made the mistake of waiting until I got off work to check some of the local B&M's on my way home. I worry about bad paint apps and jacked boxes so I do try to refrain from ordering individual pieces online. I should've pulled the trigger.

I'm usually the same way. I'm very picky about paint jobs myself. But walgreens around my way have not been stocking legends like they once were. They are all full of Namor still. I was lucky to find Mr. Fantastic. I saw him twice. And I check like 10 different walgreens periodically. So this time I just said screw it I'm ordering 2 for myself.

The two problems I have with ordering online cancel each other out in Walgreen's case. I'm afraid of getting a bad paint job, and I don't want to pay for shipping...so I always order two. Free shipping for an order over $35, and two chances at getting a decent figure.

Making one trip to Walgreens to return the 2nd toy is a helluva lot better than checking in with the store several times a month. :)

For everyone that's waiting for Silver Surfer to hit stores be warned, both my "local" Walgreens were marked online as having him, and neither one did, so best of luck, even had them check the back.  

On another note, Sauron wave is going to be delivered later, and while I'm not crazy about the wave at all, that BAF, can't wait!

Just checked the site and it says for the Silver Surfer, "not sold in stores" and out of stock online. Glad I got mine yesterday, but wish I'd ordered more, that way I could help out you guys that missed it. Though, I would expect there will be more, so keep looking!

it was up for a long time meaning they probably sold a ton of them.  i wouldn't count on seeing it again any time soon if ever.  the website even now says not sold in stores which is pretty ominous.

I'm not to worried about it. To date I've never failed to find a Walgreens exclusive. It takes a bit of time sometimes, and occasionally a little footwork, but they're always there to find... eventually.

Agreed.

I can not remember that well but didn't they have that "Not sold in stores" label before on the last one?

A friend of mine lives in Indianapolis, and a fellow collector there found Silver Surfers in multiple Walgreens the day it went up on the site.

I’m hesitant to do it because I’m sure I’ll find one and not have to buy two. Oooh what do I do??

Be patient. I know I'm one to talk, but I'm leaving on vacation soon and I wanted to be sure I had mine in hand rather than take a chance these could be one and  out (I never saw the Black Panther in stores) and I never get one when I get back.

You're right to wait. It'll cost you less to get it in store... and it WILL be in store.

Just the other day I was In Walgreens looking for X-Men and happened across 5 or 6 Mr. Fantastics. As I remember he was a tough find when he first came out as well.

Found the entire Venom wave and a ton of restocked Mr. Fantastics at my local Walgreens. Left it all if you're in my area. No interest in this wave, but Typhoid Mary looks pretty cool.

 

Update: found Psylocke and Storm at Target to complete the Apoc wave, finally!

Marvel Legends Series Silver Surfer

While walking around Manhattan today I stopped in no less than 9 Duane Reades / Walgreens and the closest I came to him was a couple of Sue Storms. Decided to pull the trigger tonight - thanks!

You can be like me and order a couple of bottles of Dial Ultra Fresh Hydrating Body Wash and Listerine Pocket Strips to get to the $35 threshold!
