Anyone else pick up the Marvel Legends Infinity Gauntlet prop from Amazon's Cyber Monday sale for $47?

Really thought about it, but I don't have anywhere to put it, that was a great deal though.

Online availability isn't the same as readily available, I don't live in an area where new ML stuff is easy to find, I've been going the online route for a very long time now.  If I was desperate to have two or three more, I'd probably have gone with EE awhile ago. I don't personally consider army building to be a priority, as much as just an interesting thing, if I never get more Multiple Men, I'll be fine.  My preference for army building is to find them at retail, maybe even a little under MSRP.  Besides, I already have one of each, just not the color variant of Psylocke.    

If you only prefer to army build by buying at retail and/or by taking advantage of sales, that’s one thing and that’s totally cool. I couldn’t ascertain that from your original post obviously as the the thing that stuck out  to me was the whole “giving up on trying to find the figure” thing.

However, a figure being made available online, for anyone in the country to purchase with ease and a few clicks on a phone, is literally the same as being readily available to all. There is a distinction but with no difference. Being readily available at retail is purely subjective based on the regional, county and city locality of the Collector and the density of the populous that resides within said localities. Case in point; you stated you struggle to find new legends/Multiple Men in your area and I have seen MM on at least 8-9 separate occasions in retail to date (about half of those locations were GameStop’s). Locally speaking, he’s been readily available for me but clearly, he’s not readily available at retail for all...so that’s not really being “readily available” when contextualized by locality. Said figure however being available on a website for that ships nationwide, for MSRP, for months on end, is truly then available to all.

I, (along with you as you stated), have been choosing the online route for years because it’s just the most practical and stress free approach. This is especially true if you are heavy collector or completionist such as myself. If you pre-order, you’re just gonna miss out on fall/holiday sales is all. I don’t usually have the luxury of waiting for something to hit clearance at B&M retail (even when I know for 100% fact that it will), because I need a mint package but hey, that’s my prerogative.

I must concede however that after witnessing the PLETHORA of Legends sales that transpired across all the different stores/sites, over the Black Friday/Cyber Week period, I’m probably going to be more discnering in what I preorder for 2019.

I have a buddy that’s a fellow legends completionist but who has much stricter budget limitations than I do and man he CLEANED UP this past week. Dozens and dozens of single carded legends for under $10 a pop. Black Widow bike for $13, Ghost Rider bike for $22, Vintage Wave 2 case for over $30 off, all of the Apoc Wave and other new legends waves for 15-20% of retail, Sasquatch case for $65 less, SP/DR case for $40 less, almost all of the MCU 10th sets for 40-50% off, etc etc I could go on and on and on lol. He basically saved a ton of money this year by barely buying anything, hoping the gamble would pay off for Black/Cyber sales and man did it pay off lol. I don’t remember every single thing he bought but I know he saved at least $500 off msrp, maybe more.

There’s no reason to suggest that Legends product will be slowing down in 2019 so this should serve as evidence that it might just be worth skipping a lot of product next year, to then turn around and get a ton of it on Black/Cyber deals for a fraction of the cost. Mileage will vary and to each their own of course.

I am definetely doing that. I am going to wait until Black Friday/Cyberweek to get most of the stuff next year. I will however get the ones that obviously I know for sure will be harder to get (e.g. Mysterio, Cyclops, etc from 2018).

I was able to get the Ghost Rider for $23, I also got a second DP from the Sasquatch wave for $9 this Cyber Monday. I also saw other figures which I did not get because I already have them like Archangel for $19.99+$4.00 shipping from Dorkside Toys, I saw the ML black knight for $13.00, saw Cable (which I paid $24.99) for $11.00.

Yeah definetely looking foward to Black Friday next year.

I am GA, too.  Small world.  I have seen Wasp, Ant Man, and Black Panther so far but that is it.  Not sure if they are just selling out of the others that quick or if they are just not getting the other three figures in my area yet.

Oh yeah, Wasp. I grabbed her at ThinkGeek. I forgot... But yeah they have been very scarce around here.

Has anyone seen vintage wave 2 anywhere in the wild? I feel like I'm wasting gas at this point

Nope, I scored Vision at EE when the black Friday sale was going on, just a single Black Panther here at a Game Stop.
