Still looking for a Deadpool. Haven't had any luck out here in Houston. A bunch of Deadpools are up on ebay for 22 bucks from Hong Kong. You guys think they're knockoffs?

Yes they are. You don't even get all the accessories and I believe with the exception of the katanas, the weapons aren't even the same.

At any rate, remain patient. Word is they're coming back down to earth and are becoming more common. I too have yet to see one hanging on a shelf (even less likely since I acquired mine from Amazon a few weeks ago for $19.99. They're back up for that price by the way). If you're going to get one online, you may as well get the genuine article, and for less.

Toys R Us in Buffalo, NY (Transit Road) had one case of the Sandman BAF wave minus Shocker and Goblin. I would've picked them up, but literally pre-ordered the wave about an hour before I saw them Thanksgiving night.

Was in the local TRU last Friday and found what was left of the Sandman BAF wave, Ms. Marvel and the Jackal. I don't think the Ms. Marvel will be difficult to find later so I only picked up the Jackal. When I asked an employee about it, he said that they had put out (I assume) the entire wave on Thanksgiving night and what I found was all that was left. Basically the shrapnel was all that remained. The Jackal figure does look good. Will be anxious to hear from the previous person that has a friend who is a TRU store manager regarding availability of this wave.

Amazon just had Ms Marvel from the Sandman wave priced at $21.99. I bought it, but right after that it went back up to $43. Any day now that wave should become regular price.

Ugh... still haven't seen Sandman wave at retail. I saw it once at Forbidden Planet in NYC. But no chain retailers. And I'm on vacation right now in Oceanside CA, have been to 3 Targets, 2 WalMart, 1 comic book/toy store, and 1 TRU. Nothing. Not one trace of them. Any suggestions?! I'm in Oceanside but can get around to Carlsbad/Encinitas.... argh....

 

I only have Green Goblin and Shocker, I need the other 5 from the wave!

I havent seen it up on EE, do you have a link?

It's not posted yet. My contact at EE let me know (same as he did for the GOTG wave back in November) that they're about to go up. I have the order posted on my account, but when I click on the link, nothing shows up...yet.

I want to thank Rukkdeez for his tips on where to look for figures. But I scoured all the locations in CA and found no traces of the Sandman wave. Womp womp.

 

BUT, I went to a TRU in San Diego at Grossmont Center, and found a guy holding a Jackal figure. We started talking about collecting and how I've been looking everywhere for this wave and this is the first trace of the wave I've seen so far. He ended up handing me the figure and allowing me to get it, since I had Green Goblin and Shocker and started building my Sandman figure already, and he hadn't started yet. Nicest experience I ever had. Shout out to Dave, a fellow collector, for being selfless and generous and giving me a great story to tell about acquiring the Jackal figure.

 

Another guy saw me walking around the store with it and commented that I found a Jackal, so three of us in the store at that time looking for the new Sandman wave.

 

Today's the last day before I fly back to NY, hope I can find at least one more character... fingers crossed for Ms. Marvel!

LOVE the bearded head! And the buzzsaw attachment for Warlock.

 

Biggest miss for me is an unmasked Sunfire head, I was really hoping for that one...

Got back home to NY with only Jackal crossed off my list. And did my tour of my NY stores today to find Jackal warming the pegs.

 

I did find a Spider-UK at my first TRU stop. At my second TRU they had no trace of the Sandman wave. And then I tried a hole-in-the-wall "TRU Express" and found a Symbiote Spider-Man, plus two more Spider-UKs, and about 8 Jackals. Nothing else.

 

So when I got home I caved and bought Ms. Marvel and ANAD Spidey 2099 on Amazon. Should be complete with Sandman by Monday! And I am LOVING the Sandman parts I have so far. The plastic they are using for the sand is perfect, I like its slight rubbery feel.

 

I also stopped into a Walgreens and two Duane Reades, and found altogether about 18-20 Yellow Daredevils warming the pegs. Some warehouse must have found a few cases of them or something cause I'd never seen so many. One store that had the most, maybe 12-14 units of it, was clearancing them at 25% off. But wow.

The Sandman Series is hitting the local Wally-Worlds pretty good. I've been picking them up there.
