the WW II Cap on motorcycle is part of the ultimate riders line, i think.  I don't believe the motorcycle set is exclusive , iirc they are shipping him out with more Prof X sets (in august or the fall?)

I ordered mine from Pulse yesterday.  No shipping notice yet, but the payment has been processed.

Sweet. Gotta admit, i have no idea how well stores will stock this set.  The Widow and Ghost Rider sets both sat on shelves at my local WM for quite awhile before they were put on clearance.  Subsequently WM didn't bother getting the DP scooter or Prof X, at least in my neck of the woods. Never saw Prof X in the wild so i presume he sold well,  my local Target did get some DP scooter sets and managed to sell them all before they hit any sale price.

I don’t recall where I read it mentioned, but someone pointed out that Dorkside had the 80th Iron Man and Thor listed for pre-order, and I saw the listings myself too, but now they’ve been taken down.

I think they were ordered by Hasbro to take them down.  Dorkside's explanation was that Entertainment Earth was violating the street date by sending 80th stuff to businesses who had bought from them wholesale (small e-tailers, local comic shops etc)  so Dorkside went ahead and posted listings.  But that's me paraphrasing what they said, so bear in mind its possible i'm misconstruing things.

I've heard a few reports of 80th Iron Man showing up at a few  Targets (including one fairly local to me in Westwood, MA.. altho i haven't checked it out)  but i don't know if that means the street date is done or if its just a few stores that accidentally violated it.

I got Beta Ray Bill in earlier and Hydroman in today. Both are Solid figures! I really like Hydroman. Yes there is limited posing but still he looks cool. The face reminds me of some actor but I'm not sure whom. 

That completes my Far from Home collection and my Avengers Endgame wave. Now on to the X-vintage wave, X-force and the 80th anniversary stuff. Whew...slow down HASBRO!!

That's pretty flimsy reasoning on their end. Shipping to retailers before the street date isn't a violation of the street date. In fact, it's essential in order for those retailers to meet the street date. The fact that Dorkside already had their product to sell should have told them that. 🙂

The 80th Cap i'm referring to a comics version based on the art of Alex Ross - that is a Walmart exclusive.   the WW II Cap on motorcycle is part of the ultimate riders line, i think.  I don't believe the motorcycle set is exclusive , iirc they are shipping him out with more Prof X sets (in august or the fall?)

The Cap motorcycles are already showing up at EB Games in Western Canada (2 Xaviers to 1 Cap in box).

I think Hyro-Man looks more like Thomas Haden Church, who played Sandman in Spider-Man 3; obviously a cartoonish/caricature, though. It’s funny, because my dad was with me when I picked up that figure a few weeks ago and he thought the same and said it even before I did.

Edit: It also, in some way that I can’t quite put my finger on, reminds me of Joe Walsh; I think it’s the smile.

Cap and Bike set just arrived. Man, I'm glad they package these things well, cause FedEx beat the living $#!+ outta that shipping box. I think Ace Ventura must've been the delivery guy. Still, no harm no foul.

I'll just have to remember never to order glassware from Pulse.

Walked into GAMESTOP this morning...walked out with X-men vintage Iceman and Dazzler. No Storm or SS but I'm a happy camper! The iceman is DYNAMIC! I really love this sculpt. Yes he could have been more blue hued but I like him just the same. Not sure if I would even complain if he didn't have the blueish ice sled. 

Dazzler is a skinny gal but boy she brings up all kinds of nostalgia. X-men arcade game anyone? Loved it and spent a fortune on it! The figure is very nicely done. Very 80's centric.

I'm really hoping for the rest of the outback team especially LONGSHOT and ARMOR PSYLOCKE

I'm hoping when HASBRO completes the 90's set they will focus on the Outback Team (and FA Storm, THUNDERBIRD and Banshee)

I got the entire Vintage wave today from Dorkside. For the first time in a long time I’m hesitant to open figures because of how much I like the packaging. This entire set turned out really well.

Yeah, they went on to say something about how some of those wholesalers will go on to break the street date but i dunno, just trying to relate their explanation in my own garbled way.  In any case I'm glad i got a pre-order in before they took down the listings.  

I checked the DPCI for Iron Man at Brickseek and it showed my local Target had him in stock, but when i went there no dice. Its OK though, they had FFH wave in stock (except mysterio) so i was able to cross another must-have figure off my list by getting Scorpion so it was worth going.

To me Hydroman looks a bit like Willem but his jaw & smirk reminds me of the late character actor Charles Napier.

Did someone in this thread say they needed a Vintage Wasp? In my wanderings today I found one and want to get it to a good home. Soooo....let me KNOW.

Just went to visit one of the Target stores in my area, on the off chance that any 80th anniversary figures were available, hoping to complete my Avengers 70"s team.  None were out but was surprised to see that the entire SPFFH wave was represented between the endcap and aisle displays.  Man that was a first and since I don't collect Spider Man figures, of course they were all there.  But I did pickup the Scorpion, I have been fascinated with him from afar for a while.  I may keep him or not.....

literally the exact same story today for me, with the same goal and same outcome. except mine didn't have Mysterio

I went to both local Targets and had the DPCI checked for the 80th figures, and was told that they may be in-stock next week. Both stores also had the FFH figures, but I picked those up weeks ago.

80th Cap is a Walmart Exclusive.

the Peggy Carter set is an Amazon exclusive 

the iron spider/iron man set is rumored to be target exclusive.

benn mentioned the hulk set; I believe the rest could be sold at any store.

altho since the 10th anniv sets didn’t seem to sell all that well I do wonder if stores will order fewer of these sets

That worries me as well since Walmart had the 10th anniversary figures for so long.  The Iron Spider/Iron Man set is my top one that I am interested in, but I would like to see as many as I can in person before pulling the trigger.

I checked brickseek yesterday and a few Target stores in my area of Ct were listed as having the 80th Ironman in stock. Luckily the first one I went to had them in stock. The figure is sweeeet! so glad I bought it. Almost bought 2.

    • Since when was Zemo a normal guy? He murdered, and was able to impersonate, a high ranking government official, killed several world leaders while wearing a Bucky mask, set off an EMP device in the middle of a bustling metropolis, broke up the world's premiere superhero organization, memorized the Winter Soldier code book, and located a top-secret Winter Soldier factory, murdering every super-soldier there-in. All while working pretty much alone. In their in-universe estimation he must be like Jason Bourne and Keyser Soze had a baby and hired Dom Toretto as his nanny. They would probably confine his butt to the Raft just to keep the stuff ratting around in his head from getting out.
    • I posted on this idea before. Starjammers would be simple to do; they've already got body molds for all characters ( Abomination makes a great Ch'od and besides, Abomination needs to re-made anyway and scaled up to match the Hulk), and just using the Spider-Man infinite Black Cat mold youve basically got Madame Hepzibah. If they just stick to Dave Cockrum's rendition it'll be perfect.
    • i'll buy that about Clint, being a world renowned assassin and all, but I seriously doubt General Ross was not aware of Scott's association with Hank Pym or familiar with the capability of the Ant-Man formula. If they woulda not know what he was capable of you'd think they woulda put him in some sort of stasis rather than a standard cell under the fear that he could simply just slip through the cracks. I also fully agree that aside from his nefarious machinations Zemo is little more threatening than your average psycho on the streets but, like I said, the Raft just seems like the proper neutral place in the MCU. Granted, we know what the Raft is used for in the Comics Universe, but that doesn't actually mean it has the same application in the much smaller MCU.
    • I've seen it going for around $35 online. If you can manage the extra $10, that might be your most reliable option.
    • Yes! While I have no reason to think any of the Hasbro production heads are reading this, or have any plans to make Red Wolf, I sure hope they take your idea into mind if they do. In fact they need to use lighter, flexible plastic whenever they're doing figures that have tunics that extend below the waist (like Doom) or longer hair ( like Scarlet Witch).
