Marvel Legends Sightings and Hauls thread

FYI fellow collectors, check your local Gamestop.  I happened to stop into the one near me yesterday just to "see what they had" and I was able to get the last three figures I needed to the complete the SP/DR wave.  Today, I found the Thor/Sif MCU 10th Anniversary two-pack at another Gamestop.  The best part is that they are offering 25% off all action figures right now.  That reduced the legends to less than MSRP and the Thor/Sif to under $40.  What great couple of hauls over the last two days!

Gamestop (Philly/Willow Grove) had some of the SP/DR wave so I grabbed Dagger & DD. Then the girl on the register told me that if I was into them, she had a Doc Ock that was just returned. I grabbed that as well - 25% off of all. 

Target had X-Men on Thursday, but only Magneto, Storm & Madrox. Today they had nada but Domino & that back in black Deadpool that's pegwarming everywhere.

2 cases, 2 purple haired Lizzie Braddocks.

I broke down and bought the dark haired one on Ebay for 30 dollars. Then grabbed another purple haired one off of there for around 35 dollars. I did not want to take a chance of one jumping to 100 dollars a month later like the Mysterio green head version. Planning on doing what I talked about and put the purple one on the light blue body.

I did come across a Wolverine from that wave at my local Target so I snatched that one up and it was the only one. I found a Chinese knockoff of the Apocalypse BAF on Ebay for 15 dollars so I thought what the heck and grabbed that. Let you guys and gals know how that turned out when I get it. Says it should be shipping in September. I canceled my Dorkside order and grabbed the only figure I wanted out of that wave off of Ebay for 16 dollars loose with no BAF, Sabertooth. I 'll pass on the rest, Gladiator, Magneto (have the exclusive TRU one), Multiple Man (Not going to start anymore teams. I am not going to wait another 3 to 4 years to complete), and Storm (The Jim Lee one is being talked about so I will pass on this one plus have the TRU one).

This is what I get for speaking out:

 

In January, on another forum, there was a "Figure of the Year" thread where I made a new category to name Walgreens the Retailer of the Year.  My reasoning was that they always came through for me.  in 2017 I found 90% of my Legends there.  And they restocked weekly.  I rarely walked out of a Walgreens empty handed.  In fact, I had to stash some figures in other aisles to go back later, because I would run out of money !

 

Fast forward to the Summer of 2018:  No Reed anywhere; stale, old, unwanted stock for months, and my daily routine of going to the two Duane Reades near my bus station in Manhattan (because I ALWAYS found something at least once a week there) are all but dried up.   The Hells Kitchen Duane Reade now has their Marvel Legends under lock and key (like dangerous medicines), and the Port Authority Duane Reade has REMOVED all their "Avengers Legends $19.99" "Spider-Man Legends $19.99" etc  stickers, and now have printer paper stacked up on their Marvel Legends shelf ! ! !   

WTF ?!?!?!?!

I will be interested to hear your impression of the BL Apocalypse.  Im in the same boat as you I REALLY only wanted the BAF and the tiger stripe Wolverine (picked up at Target over the weekend).  If its passable, I might be interested.  Im hopeful they will re-release it like Thanos/Groot/Hulkbuster in a lighter blue, but Im not holding my breath.

Yeah...........I would have had him and Beast switch places but Beast was holding up Jean because she could not stand on her own without falling..............
