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).

Boom got that Nova  

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

Ok... story time.     This is is the utterly ridiculous, unbelievably frustrating, but overall happy ending true story of what it took to get my 80th Anniversary Captain America.

Dang, I'd say that's some good luck there.  Still trying to hunt one down myself.

A local Target had the Marvel Studios Iron Man/Thanos/Doctor Strange and Hulk/Hulkbuster sets on the shelf today.  When I tried to purchase them, I was denied at the register due to the 8/1 street date.  I really dislike this pointless street date horseshit.

 

:angry:

I saw the Hulk Buster set also at my Target and thought about getting it. That is a bunch of BS. The Hulk looked great in the package.

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.

Been slowly piecing together the Apoc X-Men. Just missing Storm and Psylocke. Found the rest at various retail over the last two weeks.

The only things I've found at retail in the last few weeks are a disregard for all of my local brick-n-mortar stores and confirmation that of late Hasbro's distribution has been F-ed-Up as a football bat.

... but I'm not bitter.

That didn't last long.

Try a different browser or incognito/private mode. He's showing up as out of stock on the main Marvel page but I'm still able to add him to cart via his product page as of 11:15 AM EST:

https://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-e2301as00

Others I'm able to see as in stock but the add to cart button is greyed out. Something is buggy with their site today. If all else fails, hop in your time machine back to 1990 and order by phone!!!

Yeah, my area is riddled with scalpers. Drives me crazy, I have to check every day, but I usually get lucky enough eventually.

For those interested in the 10th Anniversary sets:

Iron Man/Thanos/Doctor Strange

Hulk/Hulkbuster

 

I attempted to order both sets earlier this morning for pickup at the same store I tried to purchase them at two days ago.  After I got denied at the register due to the street date, I watched them pull two of the Thanos set and six of the Hulk set off of the shelves.  I was able to initially place the order for pickup, but then got an email a bit later today saying that neither were available at that location.  I found that hard to believe, so I stopped at the store anyway on my way to work.  Oddly enough, all of the sets they pulled from the shelf two days ago were back out.  So, I grabbed both.  I'm not sure what's up with Target's site or online inventory, but it's messed up.
