These were new in box, on a peg. These kids' (and honestly most decent retail thieves') strategy is to have one or two of them tie up the staff with questions as a diversion while the others run out with something. I think they only got Iron Man and Thor, but they were the 80th anniversary versions, so they're $5 more than typical Legends. I wasn't there at the time, and I don't let my staff chase shoplifters because they can get in serious trouble if things aren't done perfectly by the book, and it's better to unambiguously have policies that don't risk their safety, but it still stings.

When I was a kid working at a supermarket in FL in the mid 80’s the store would announce some code and you dropped everything and ran for the door and jumped whoever the guy in front of you was jumping.  It got pretty crazy sometimes with 8-10 stock guys holding people down and chasing shoplifters.  It’s way too dangerous these days and not to mention the lawsuits they would hit you with.  I agree with you about not having your staff chase them down.  It’s not worth the hassle or getting shot over catching shoplifters.

Yeah I had really no idea kids/people were actually out right stealing figures, but I guess they must since, we see the state of swapping and ripping off.

Figure swapping, shop-lifting, I even heard about a guy who carried bar-code stickers from those little .99 cent scented candles around in his wallet. If someone is selling something, there's always gonna be someone who'll try to steal it.

Damn, I would be tempted to pick that up if I saw it in the wild, rather than wait for my own store's copies, which aren't due in until December 1st or so. It's gonna be a tough wait. I didn't realize how excited I was for this version of Havok until just now. That's a great looking figure.

I stopped by two GameStops in the past few days and haven’t seen Big Time Spidey yet.  I need to check the app to see where I can find him.

I just opened my 80th Anniversary Thor.  He's far and away my favorite classic Thor.  Just a beautiful figure from top to bottom.

Constructive criticisms: He's got next to no head movement side-to-side.  Making his hair out of some softer plastic that could be bent up over the cape would have alleviated that some.  Also, when are we going to get a legends-scaled whirling hammer effect accessory!?

I put him up on my shelf to admire him for a day or so and he's casting a very dramatic shadow on the wall this morning.

grats on the thor dude, im glad you're so happy with it😁 that is an epic shadow!

 

i got the mark 85 iron man today and im super thriled  with it. if i had to name its flaws i guess it would be that the neck peg they used is a really weird choice, and the eyes and arc reactor cold use a touch of blue? other than that though its my favorite iron man ML yet

Congrats! Having Karma and Dani toys has been a big quality of life improvement for me. We may not have my favourite looks for most of them (yet), but my dream team of Chamber, Dust, Karma, Magik, Psylocke, and Wolverine inches ever forward.

Yeah I'm really stoked, I was worried for a quick moment we'd never see Dani here in Canada (even then I was worried we'd have the same problem as you US guys at Walgreens never finding em), then EB Games dude told me it was a go after me bugging him forever, initially he said I could pre-order but it didn't seem that way, so I was on my way to a family event and said screw it I'm going to EB, sure enough as I walked in I saw a Dani, and then 2 more and grabbed em so fast, the guy at the cash thought I was just a real weirdo at how fast I did all that and asked "but why 3?" so I had to explain , but hey just to let people know it seems we are doing better then Walgreen's here with EB , they had 8 of these on the rack

I actually got mine from BBTS, no sign of the figure at any local GameStops.  They've had Iron Man and Wolverine, but that's it.

Those TMNT figures are works of art, some of my absolute favorite figures of all time, and definitely the best Turtles figures on my shelf.  Can't wait for the next wave of them in 2020.

Found the new Avengers wave tonight at Wal-Mart. All very nice figures. The VALKYRIE and Iron Man really stood out to me but I'm going to pass on this series. If anyone is looking for these figures let me know. I can swing by in the morning and pick up what you NEED.

Careful using the word “finally” on this board... causes some to chuckle and eye rolls in others.. 😀
