Damn street dates!!!

 

So I go to one TRU in Queens NY today at the time they open and there's nothing new on the pegs. I then head to a second, further TRU, and find MCU Thor and Loki, nothing else. I go to customer service and ask if he has anymore in stock, he scans and notices the street date but I say I found it on the pegs, so he goes to get more. While I'm waiting, another guy in a Venom logo t-shirt (do you post here bro? Good score!) rolls up with the other 6 from the case and buys them all. The cashier gets an override from the manager to sell the wave to this guy. The guy also shows the cashier a picture of the pegs, which had $14.99 stickers on them for the Legends sale that ended on 7/22, so she overrode the prices to 14.99 on his whole wave.

 

The guy looking in the back for me, walkies the cashier to tell her that he's coming back with my Legends. The manager replies on the walkie that they're done with Legends for today, and doesn't let the guy get me any more from the back. I tried to fight it, since I just watched this other guy buy the whole wave. But Manager said he's honoring what was mistakenly placed on the pegs for customers but what's in the back can't be sold until the release date. Damn! So I bought Thor and Loki at 14.99, at least I got them! And at a discount, which alleviates SOME of my frustration.

 

And if you post here Mr. Venom T-Shirt Dude, good score, and I tip my hat to you!

Haha, good story. I imagine most toy stores hate collectors.

Interesting find today...

 

I went out to Toys R Us in a vain hope to find anything - the Spider-Man Homecoming 2 Pack with Iron Man, any Ragnarok figures, or maybe even divine intervention to see an A Force set out in the stores.

 

No luck on any of that.

 

So having seen some posts that people have found Ragnarok legends at Walgreens I decided to make a stop.

 

No Ragnarok figures, but at the far end of the toy aisle they had Punishers and Yellow Daredevils with a $5 sticker on them.

I went to another Walgreens and they just had a single Yellow Daredevil at full price, so it must be up to individual manager's discretion on when they clearance these. The ones I picked up had a $7 sticker that I could see under the $5 sticker, so they must have been languishing for a while.

 

I never had a huge need for the Punisher so I'm glad I waited. The second one is planned for custom fodder.

Managed to get a hold of a second Adam Warlock yesterday to display as the Magus full time! I was so pumped, it was funny because the employee at FYE asked me where I had found that, with a hint of perhaps disappointment. I don't always hunt at FYE for ML but they do sometimes have some of the rare ones on the pegs if you get lucky, I guess lower traffic than most other collectibles spots.

Amazing display Rukkdeez!

 

Finally got my A-Force set and I agree it is EPIC!

 

Most mesmerized by Singularity (glitter mixed into her plastic!), Elsa Bloodstone (vivid colors and stunningly beautiful face sculpt), and Monica Rambeau (also gorgeous and enjoy this costume)!

 

Wish She-Hulk's belt was painted a little thinner, Lady Loki is also a stunningly beautiful face, but I feel like she's too short and condensed in the body, and Sif is pretty too, but the costume looks too basic in red and white. Wish there was something different but I'm not sure what.

Also, is the Starlord / Ego two-pack no longer an EE exclusive? It's listed as coming soon on HTS and is available for order at Walmart:

Mangar, pretty sure Star-Lord/Ego was a TIMED EE exclusive, like the X-Men Warlock wave first released at Target before other chains. I saw 3 units of the 2pack at a Toys R Us express in Manhattan this past Saturday. So I think they'll be everywhere.

 

What that's doing is making me question whether Thor/Valkyrie will be available everywhere and at Target FIRST, or only at Target ever....
