Another Xorn retcon, huh? I figured Stryfe had to be involved...

No retcon, sadly the figure didn’t have the helmet, but that's common at car boot sales

I didn't realize the helmet was removable on that figure, and totally thought it had been head-swapped with some version of Cable. Haha. I guess that's a Magneto head, though, which makes total sense.

In unrelated news, I was in Delaware today and called up a few Walgreens to see if I could score a tax-free Emma while I was down there. One store had one and said they'd put it on hold for me, so I headed over there as soon as I could (about an hour later) and was told "oh, sorry, I just assumed we had them because I sold one earlier today, but I haven't had a chance to go over and check or set it aside for you yet". Nothing. I didn't have this much trouble with Mystique. The uncharacteristically helpful dude at my preferred local Walgreens, meanwhile, maintains that he's put in an order for more, and can't promise they'll come in, but figures that tomorrow or next Monday is when they would, if they do. Here's hoping.

I stopped by GameStop today and I was surprised to find the new Logan so soon.  It always seems like I find Legends in the Denver area about a month after they are spotted just about everywhere.

It is, annoyingly I can't find a spare helmet online

Managed to get Emma last week in Dublin and for only €25!

Saw a single Sinister at my local Walmart the week before last, and actually had two or three chances to get him . . . but didn't.

So naturally, Nightcrawler, who everyone said would be impossible to find (I found him first) is at almost every store I go to, yet this male bondage-harlequin who looks like something out of a bad anime and used up all his relevance in the 90s is the one EVERYBODY wants.

I think the consensus  opinion was that Sinister would be the hardest to find after Nightcrawler, but that in reality being double-packed has helped Kurt a lot.  Certainly Sinister and NIghtcrawler still seem to go the two who are quickest to sell, although i've only seen a case here or there and the whole wave sold pretty quickly.  

In other news, gamestop is doing an online sale where you spend $100 and 25% off,  given their markup its not necessarily a huge discount but might be helpful if anyone is still looking to get the Hulk set.  In store its one of those things were you have to buy a $5 bag and then get 25% off your purchase.  

Heard a single report of black series figures being on sale at Walgreens but not sure if that's really the case or not. Could be just a clearance situation at one store.

In my eternal quest for Emma, I stopped into Walgreens today. No dice yet, but Black Series was definitely marked down to $8, so I did pick up that E7 Kylo Ren I'd been eyeing up but hadn't been able to justify at full price.

They're popping up in our area.  I found one on Saturday in Kennett Square PA.

Yeah, I've scoured Philly, the nearby western suburbs, and now also New Castle, DE, and come up empty. Three stores so far have said they had a copy in earlier the day I got there, but I seem to keep missing them by a few hours. Kennett Square is probably just on the far side of what I'd be willing to travel, at least as a dedicated trip, but if you see any more out that way and wouldn't mind messaging me with which store, I'd really appreciate it. I'm still holding out some hope that my preferred local store will come through with the restock they're attempting for me, but they were up front that it was not a sure thing.

Anyone wanna grab me an Emma figure?? I can PayPal you!!

I'm happy to do this if I find a second one, assuming I ever find a first. Shipping can get expensive, though. Where do you live again?

Just in case anyone is interested, I have up my entire Mezco One:12 Collection on eBay at the moment, minus the half dozen pieces I sold to friends. I have over 40 figures currently listed. Every figure is MISMB.

My eBay ID: Cobrasaboteur87

I am not shipping international but would make an exception if any forum members one the final bid.

Thanks!

Due to the fiasco at HasbroPulse, I ended up ordering the SDCC Hulk from Robot Kingdom, and it already arrived!  That's some impressive shipping speed.

Is Robot Kingdom also sold out? I checked there but a search yields no results. Not to pry (too much) but how much over $100 was the Hulk plus international shipping? Worried for my wallet going this route.

Also, Hasbro Pulse is not high on my list these days either. Missed out on the Hulk but I'm ok with it, I went for the Collector / Grandmaster. However, my items arrived today via FedEx and the box was absolutely trashed. Ordered two and both sets have considerable damage. I had hoped that since it was an exclusive they would have shown a little more care. As a matter of fact, every order has been curiously shipped. My MCU 2 packs were double packed in a too small box (All three sets I ordered) and I recently ordered Guardian from the X-Force wave and his  shipping box looked like an accordion.  

So annoyed.

They are sold out, but if you search "hulk" on their site and scroll down a bit, it's there.

The figure was $41.90 in US dollars, and the cheapest shipping was $23.  So, just under $65 total.  The shipping said it would come in an air packet, but it arrived in a box and was completely encased in styrofoam and shipping peanuts.  Plus, it arrived in 4 days.  I guess I can't complain too much about that.

I really appreciate it. I'm in Texas..right outside of Houston in a small town called Katy.  And shipping loose in a bubble mailer is perfectly alright with me.

The recent Marvel legends re-releases are not confined to Tesco. I saw them in my local SMYTHS in Waterford for €18. I bought the Stealth Suit Spidey aka Night - Monkey.

Unknown they first appeared in the UK and now Ireland have them. I suspect they are the latest wave of international Best Ofs but now without the BAF parts and at a much cheaper price

Didn't get a shipping notice from Hasbro Pulse ever, but I got a notification today that my SDCC Hulk is out for delivery.

    • 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).
