This is not true at all for Kiloin and I's area though. He and I literally go to the same stores. We're in the north bay, Im sure in the east bay where you are it's different. I refuse to believe scalpers are dumb enough to drive from over 20 miles away to flip a couple of toys for 5-10 bucks profit. There's a guy out in St.Helena, but I really doubt he's making a significant dent in our area. If he bought all those at the store, he's selling 150 dollars worth of X-men figs for 190 bucks, not counting gas and shipping and ebay fees and paypal cut. That's not 40 dollars profit, it's less. Plus, he has whole waves up, I see parts of waves all the time. I don't see anyone else near me selling the stuff, so if it's scalpers, where are they flipping this stuff?  It has to be collectors. when they could just buy whole cases. There's a few Targets in our area, that's only a few wolverine figures from the new x-men wave, of which I bought 2.  The supply and demand just doesn't line up sometimes. A guy was eyeing my wolverine in my hand today hard and saw him at a second target as well, sorry to anyone that might have been if you're in this topic. It's not scalpers, its other collectors. Ive casually walked into Targets here and gotten stuff plenty of times. If you don't live here it's not economically feasible to try and buy it to flip it, and again I never see anyone selling from the Santa Rosa area. 

 

FYI to keep on topic, both SR targets had a gladiator at them, nothing else from the x-men wave, (as I took the wolverine) saw none at ropo.

Oh there are a lot of collectors for sure, but just yesterday I saw a guy at the SR Target walking around with a stack of gamorean guards (spelling?) from the SW black series that must have just rolled out. Don't know what he was gonna do with all of them but regardless, if all the inventory is bought up then it leaves nothing for anyone else. I only ever buy one of each ML I want and leave the rest. Did see that Gladiator you mentioned.

Here's the rundown: 

 

During Comic-Con I received the Thor/Groot,Rocket 3 pack as well as the 10th Anniversary Thor/Sif 2 pack from EE. I purchased the Red Skull/Tesseract & Defenders Railcar sets as well as the 10th Anniversary Ronan & Iron Man MKVII figures.

The following week, I received my X-Men Apocalypse  & Venom Monster Venom waves.

This week started off with me stumbling across a Black haired Psylocke (I got the Purple haired version in my X-Men cases), then the Winter Soldier/Falcon, Everett Ross/Killmonger & Hulk/Hulkbuster  10th Anniversary  2 packs.

Today, I got charged for the Deadpool Sauron & Spider-Man SP//DR waves. Should be here Saturday. 

35 figs in hand since July 21. 51 come Saturday. I will always lean to the side of "there can never be too much Marvel Legends but Sweet Googly Moogly!!! 

Where did you order the Sauron save from?

Yea but again, Im not seeing anyone from SR selling Gamorean guards. He might have just been army building. That's a viable figure for that too. I guess with that one they could be trying to sit on it for later? I don't know SW exclusives too well these days.  I just know from toycon and such, this area is rough and with no Toys r Us now? Speaking of, no one sniped the cyke/dark phoenix two pack at TRU a year ago. It was in stock at TRU during toycon, so even that didn't get scalped, when the scalpers were literally down the street. Now though, this is a really hard time. Things were a little rough before, but this will be hard hunting days for sure.

For those that care, HasbroToyShop has listed all of the figures (except for Omega Red) from the Sauron BAF wave as "coming soon".

They added the page for Omega Red last night and all of them came in stock overnight. Unfortunately by the time I work up at 6:30 EST Wolverine, Omega Red, and Bishop were all OOS. The other three are still available as of 9:30 EST.

Magneto and purple Psylocke showed up yesterday from HTS. Today I hit up Target again and found the entire X Men wave. Grabbed Wolvie, Sabertooth, Storm, and black haired Psylocke. Skipped Multiple Man cause 2 out of the 3 heads had wacky eyes. All the others have impeccable paint jobs. 

Also nabbed 10th Ann. Iron Man.  GREAT DAY!!!

Sauron Wave shipped out from BBTS yesterday.  I feel like it's the light at the end of the tunnel now that this and the Venom wave are shipping, a small break with less figures all streaming out will be nice.

Has anyone seen Thing or Surfer out in the wild yet?

Nope, I heard somewhere that September is the release, so I imagine they'll start showing up at the end of the month.

I still haven’t seen Mr Fantastic or Super Skrull.

Is Super Skrull actually out? I haven't even seen a reveal, besides pictures of it in Walgreens' database.
