the only one that's expensive on ebay is storm

I guess it depends what you mean by 'expensive', but the cheapest complete, unopened Beast on eBay right now is $22.95 plus (based on my location) $7.85 shipping, and they're pretty much all $30 or more after shipping, even loose. Jubilee and Nightcrawler can be found cheaper, especially loose or at least not sealed, but almost all new copies on eBay are still $25+. Jubilee and Nightcrawler are also $30 on Amazon, while Beast is $40.

Oh, and @Gigantor, I finally saw a few of the defective Iceman figures you were talking about. The Gamestops around here seem to have a ton of copies of Iceman, so I've been looking through them all, and a few definitely had the line you described. Most of them did not, however, and I have now seen dozens without that defect locally. Maybe some areas just got hit primarily by bad batches? Either way, hang in there. There are plenty of lineless 90s Icemans out there.

I got 2 (a friend and I ordered together). Both had the middle line, but one wasn't that noticeable... the other one looked like Tyrion Lannister should've looked if the book had really been referenced.

That's definitely a huge bummer. I guess whatever type of plastic they're using for the icy look is just prone to defects.

This is a strange and unique time for me...I actually have all currently available Marvel Legends products, both comic and MCU. It's even weirder because it's at a time when there is SO much product being released; as a result, I'm sending all of my excess good vibes to you all - best of luck in the hunt, because there's a lot out there!

Picked up Guardian recently. A very bittersweet figure indeed! If they hadn't shown us those prototypes with the gorgeous metallic paint, then this would have been fine. As is, and with the grumpy-grampa face it's ok. Still happy to have a new Guardian figure at long last though. I would really love it if Hasbro included some bonus alternate heads as pack-ins with some future Alpha Flight character, ideally a neutral expression and a grit teeth expression. Some bonus hands would have been nice, but I find Quicksilver's open palm hands work really well as zap-em-up hands on good ol' Mac!

As I said in an FB group..
He's just in a grump because he's from London Ontario.

Same, man.
Same.

I just picked up Emma in downtown San Francisco.

 

Good luck to my fellow collectors and toy hunters in getting this figure real soon.

I check Walgreens every week. It's been a tough wait.

I stopped by 2 Walmarts today and I finally saw the Skurge/Hella 2 pack at both Walmart’s and when I got home the Skurge/Hella 2 pack I ordered on eBay was waiting for me.  I also found the holy grail of figures right now at the second Walmart.  I couldn’t believe they restocked the Retro wave and saw Storm hanging on the back peg.  I quickly snatched her off the peg  and hightailed it to self checkout so she could be mine.  I ordered a Retro Storm a few weeks ago on Amazon for $30 with free shipping, but it had a Dec date I believe.  I’m not sure if I will cancel that order.  The only set I haven’t seen, but am highly considering is the WWII Cap and motorcycle set.  Is this selling in all retailers or just specific ones?  I though I was just about done with the hunts and just saw Emma Frost spotted in San Francisco so now I need to start hitting Walgreens like a mad man.

My first thought was you don’t need a grey Hulk and my second thought was shut up because you know you need this Hulk on your shelf.

My thing is a little different. There's still stuff out there I need, I'm just taking it slow. The Wendigo wave and the Jugs/Colossus set are at pretty good saturation right now. I snagged a Nightcrawler, got my Retro Storm, why be in a hurry for the rest? I wanna take it easy, enjoy the hunt for a bit. Maybe give the heat a chance to break, hook up with the sibs, grab some dinner, make a day out of it.

I'm feeling uncharacteristically mellow, I think I'll run with it.

Yeah, I'm with you in that I got the figures that I really want and in no rush to get other figures.  I mean, I still haven't completed my BAF Endgame Hulk nor the BAF Endgame Thanos as the remaining figures I need I really don't want.  So, I'm just waiting for Black Friday sales.

I'm right smack in the middle of you 2, but bad. 

I have everything I really want readily available waiting for it to be delivered or preordered, but feeling anxious about when the next figures will become available. 

Oh and Ezra... I can't find Ezra. But that's on another forum 😛

Ordered the Hulk/Wolverine 2-pack from HasbroPulse on Tuesday and got it delivered today! Very happy with that service, and, y'know, the figures themselves.

I'm waiting for BBTS to ship my Nightcrawler, but there aren't any other new figures that I want right now. Over the weekend I picked up some older figures that I needed (Daredevil, Nick Fury, Spider-Gwen) at Fan Expo Boston. There are a few other older figures (Thundra, Vance Astro) that I might pick up if I see them cheap, and there are some build-a-figures I really want (Man-Thing, Absorbing Man, Sandman) but will probably need to get them off eBay. 

So... yeah, I'm basically set until next year when they release Doctor Doom and Shang-Chi.

I'm think I'm set until December, in terms of new figures that I really want, because that's when the Jean Grey, Cyclops and Wolvie are scheduled to be released and that Dude Thor MCU Wave.

Yeah, finished my "must-get" list when Thor arrived earlier this week, which feels very satisfying. 

Still plenty of great figs out there i would like to get,  but gonna wait for either a sale or for at least a few weeks to go by before i pick up anything else. Helps that a lot of recent figs are proving nearly impossible to put down.

I am up to date as well, just waiting for the "love triangle " set to arrive in December.  But the nightcrawler and storm figures that I ordered from HP have either paint or glue defects which makes me wander in the wild for better specimens.  I am happy to have them, but the imperfections just eat at me.

Next thing I pick up will probably be the Jugs/Colossus set. I always planned on grabbing the entire Wendigo wave, but now that I know they're doing an Alpha Flight set, I'll make a special effort to track down Guardian (my "Big Want" from the series anyway) as well.

My must haves are finished as well.  Although that Alpha Flight set definitely merited a pre-order.

the alpha flight set is  nice but not a must-have for me so i held off. i'm hoping sometime next year amazon will sell it at a discount but if not and i end up missing out, its OK.  Sasquatch was always my favorite of the group and while he's not my favorite character i always liked Guardian's costume. those two pretty much satisfy my Alpha Flight needs.

If anyone's looking for retro wave, most of it is (slightly) discounted on amazon now -  Wolvie for $15,  Cyke and Iceman for $17, Dazzler $17.50.   

Also the Luis and Ghost set is on sale on amazon for $40.

Feels like that one and the Skurge/Hela set may stick around long enough to drop in price more significantly, that's just a gut feeling tho.

So after stating that I'm good with ML, here comes the Alpha Flight box set.   So I bit on it.  My saving grace is that I have enough points on my Amex card to cover the cost of the set, so no dinero out of my pocket.  Now I'll pick up a guardian at a later date on sale.
