Ah, embarrassment of riches! So I had finally made it to Walmart, picked up a few things for my sister, and made my way back toward the toy department hoping, but not really expecting, that one o

NAMOR!

 

Arrived today from robotkingdom.com

 

Great figure. Pretty legit upgrade from the previous Toy Biz and Hasbro attempts. I'm going put a red "X" from Forge's or Jim Lee Wolverine's belt onto this guy, and he is going in the X-Men display. Great sculpt and paint job.

 

Imperius Rex!

My wife went grocery shopping last night and surprised me by grabbing me Mockingbird. :biggrin: Apparently our WalMart finally got the Onslaught wave and the Rhino wave. She would have got me White Tiger since our 5 year old is a huge fan of the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon and would have loved to see her on my desk but didn't have enough to get both.

Got the Avengers 3-pack today!

 

These figures look pretty good. Joints are a little rubbery, but the paint application is great. I'm always a fan of new characters getting figures and this Hawkeye is most welcome. I didn't need a new Vision as I have the Hulkbuster version, "old" collared hasbro version, clear ToyBiz version, and the White 3-pack Infinite version, but this one is also a good all-around figure. Sam Wilson needs some wings, which I may add later, but the face sculpt and paint are great. See pics for details.

 

Now, to me, my X-Men Legends!

Glad I could help!

 

I would not have been as interested in it except I freakin love Matt Fraction's Hawkeye series.

Just found out the Civil War wave 2 set will come out with a revised edition. This one will have 2 Black Panthers. This should mean two things: They'll be a little easier to come across (when the wave FINALLY hits retail stores), and it should also drive the eBay prices down somewhat.

I received an email from HTS this morning informing me Fury was in stock. Had him in my cart 3 times but couldn't pull the trigger. If only I could've found some more things I wanted in time to get free shipping but he was gone after about 3 min.

 

On the bright side, I just picked up Thunderball at a toy show for $15 to complete my Wrecking Crew.

There may be one possible explanation as to why Civil War wave 2 is taking so long to show up in the brick and mortars; I've seen here in my area, every Target, Walmart and TRU (not to mention Walgreens) have pegs filled with past waves (Civil War wave 1, Absorbing Man, Red Skull, Rhino, Allfather and even some remnants of the Mandroid wave). And when I say filled, I mean loaded. A lot of stores have policies regarding this and some may not even order any because it appears as though the line isn't selling, when in reality the reason is because most of the collectors getting their product from retail have what they want already. And the stores won't place the figures that aren't selling on clearance. They simply remain until they get purchased...if ever. The other thing could also be this: It seems to me that Hasbro is making more figures in a wave run and the pegs have become saturated with all of the above mentioned waves.This could merely be in my area (San Diego). Do any of you see this where you shop? If not, what are your ideas on the matter? I ask because I have my Civil War wave 2 set, but I want to army build S.H.I.E.L.D. soldiers, and it's been about a month since I got wave 2.

I've been on the lookout for Wave 2 of Civil War and have only seen it in one store (a comic/record chain) here in Boston. They overpriced them, so I didn't even bother picking them up. Otherwise, I'm seeing the same thing as you. Pegs FILLED with much older waves. Stores won't order any if they're still sitting on old stock.

 

Just trying to get one Nick Fury. Probably going to have to keep an eye out on Amazon or TRU online.

I'm putting this post under this thread because it looks like we're going to see massive sightings very soon! That's what I want to talk about. From all indications, THREE waves are coming out next month. I know I'm one of the people here who speak out against the incessant whining and complaining, but I think this bears mentioning; 3 waves within the same time frame is going to kill a lot of collectors! Think about it: the X-Men wave has 8 figures. If you're fortunate enough to get them at a B&M, they'll run from $19.99-22.99 plus tax(here in California it's aprox 8.5%). That's about $172 and change. The Spider-Man wave has 6 and the Cap wave will also have 6. Now I understand not everyone wants everyTHING, but for those that do, we're talking over $400!!!! If you buy cases, that may bring it down to around the $360 range (plus shipping) and you get extra unwanted figures. Now I, myself will be able to get them all (I buy wholesale), but even then that'll be a nice hit to my wallet (and I always double up on my cases. One to display/one to store), but what about those who can't do that? I know we all want Hasbro to put out...well...LOTS of Legends...BUT NOT ALL AT ONCE!!! Also keep in mind San Diego Comic-con is next month and they'll have some exclusive that'll be over $100 as well (I know most won't get these but it still adds fuel to the "I missed out" fire). It's one thing if you just can't find a figure and you miss out. It's another thing entirely (and I believe far worse) if the friggin' things are right in front of you and you miss out because you can't get them all. And the torture will be...YOU'LL HAVE TO CHOOSE WHICH GET LEFT ON THE PEGS!!! I know I pontificated big time here, but I truly feel this is going to be a burden (financially, emotionally or both) for a lot of our fellow collectors, and despite our differing opinions, the one thing we all have in common is our love for these figures. Please share your thoughts on this (thanks for putting up with me).

 

PS: Speaking of SDCC, has anyone heard anything about what this year's exclusive(s) will be? The news is usually out by now.

I have seen the same thing in my area and have the same theory. Thats why I just went ahead and bought Black Panther and Nick Fury off the internet for 35.00 a piece. I really wanted these figures. I bought Namor as well off of Ebay and preordered the whole X-Men wave from some site with Ultimate Spidey, Hobgoblin, Electro, and Ashley Barton Spidey. I am not going to take any chances. I hope stores don't start canceling their orders of this line saying they are not selling due to overstock of older figures. I hate to see ML go the same way as Marvel Universe. I have seen Walmart try to clearance out the first wave of Avengers figures but they are still there. I broke down and bought an original looking Hawkeye figure for 16.00 when they did.

Wonder if that 3-pack release date is worldwide, that looks fantastic! As for the 3 waves tentatively launching in June, I doubt that will happen, but I've been prepping for it in case it did. 3 waves in a month might saturate the market, but I do hope that the X-men wave is this month!

Target is making an effort this week to clear out the pegwarmers. They have a 50% off Avengers/Captain America Marvel Legends discount this week in their Cartwheel. Cartwheel is a mobile app you install, then you go through the list for Toys, Movies, etc. and add the offers you're planning to buy to your "cartwheel," and then have the cashier scan the app's bar code when you check out to get the discount. You can also set all that up on desktop and print out the bar code to scan.


Note that it only works on 4 items per offer in a single purchase, but you can use it in 6 separate purchases per day. So you can get at most 24 figures per day with the discount if you split up your purchases.


The offer doesn't work on Spidey nor on 4" figures...just on Avengers/Captain America ML. But that will be any and all Avengers/Captain America waves from Winter Soldier up through Civil War.

This past weekend I decided to check my local Walmart...and they had the Civil War Wave 2 figures. They must have just put out the case that morning because there were two Caps, two Iron Man, and one of every other figure. I bought the entire wave...and paid the "normal" price for each one. I figured that I better not wait. Took the approach that if see them, don't wait, just buy them. The Black Panther figure is outstanding. One of the best ML figures I have seen and I started collecting them late in my life. I had to wait until the kids were out of college. Only ones that I have not purchased were the Rhino and Absorbing Man sets although I did get some from the AM wave as I wanted certain figures in the set. Just letting everyone know that the Civil War Wave 2 is out there and it has hit retail stores.
