Midtown Comics, Times Square, NYC

Super Skrull wave.  

Plenty of Dooms.  I guess he is two per case.  Hasbro makes a good decision!

Not so many (She) Hulk though :(

Presoldout online, I was sure he was this year's Storm.
So happy to be wrong, I was able to select the best specimen from the 10 hanging there this morning.

WOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!

Haven't seen either the FF or new Spidey waves in the wild, yet.  One of my local WM is absolutely overflowing with the Prof Hulk wave so i'm not sure they'll be getting new stuff in anytime soon.  Target and the other WM have more empty spots on the pegs so maybe one of the waves will show up there before too long.

I did see a few of the new McFarlane DC figs, but just the ones based on animated stuff which i have no interest in.  Even the comic ones i'm not too keen on as they are too big to pose with ML (although they would probably work with marvel select).

what truly bothers me is what is the point of pre-ordering if it's not going to secure you the product, this is the point of the pre-order or am I just insane... must be insane, I'm especially pissed off that now listed on amazon is only a 3rd party seller who is selling the figure for 137 dollars

You're not insane, and it's truly missing the points of preordering anything. You've every right to be upset, just don't give up on finding the figure at retail price yet. I mean, it hasn't even been a month and it's currently not being offered worldwide even.

Still in stock.  

For now at least.  Storm went quick, so act fast.

I found the new Spidey wave and picked up the Shang Chi I wanted. The others look great though.

on a side note I also picked up the new McFarlane Superman. Got to say it is sooooo disappointing. As a statue he looks great, but try to pose him and the weird joints and odd proportions are exposed. As others have mentioned he is way out of scale for Legends but as a Superman fan I had hoped he would be something special. guess it was not meant to be. All good, though, Hasbro is going to get a lot more of my money this year.

McFarlane's initial fail (going to keep watch to see if they improve) really makes me grateful for the golden age of Marvel Legends we are in right now. I get a company with a new license having growing pains, lord knows Hasbro had their share but when I can walk out with a SHANG CHI figure that puts Superman to shame we are truly in a great era

Thanks Dude, I appreciate the support.

it turns out as per usual I'm very lucky to have a GF who endorses my figure collecting, after I told her what happened with the pre-order, she called me and told me to shut up because she bought me Doom from some other site

Exactly! What IS the point of the pre-order...they pulled this crap with me way back when they were offering the X-Men wave with Jubilee BAF....

I'm not too mad about it now, since we have a better Magneto, better Storm (and on the way to getting her in her original outfit) and even better Jubilee, a figure I wasn't exactly clamoring for anyway. But at the time they didn't cancel my order until every other action figure site had already sold out.

Just anecdotal evidence, but i remember last year a lot of stories  amazon preorders getting cancelled.  I wouldn't preorder anything from them unless its an exclusive. probably better to go with one of the smaller etailers, although its a crapshoot as to how quickly they get the product relative to others, and also a crapshoot as to whether the etailer receives their full shipment from hasbro all at once (if not, sometimes you end up having to wait for the next shipment while others will get theres). - and my guess is this is what happened with your preorder, amazon got a smaller shipment than expected and rather than wait for who knows how long they cancel the orders once they've run out of stock.  

its frustrating but i would say its mainly hasbro not being able to keep up with demand, and i'm not sure what the solution is.  I also think of things last year like WM getting a big FFH display and then having none of the FFH figures to put on it - instead the display came with a case of  Kingpin wave, which seemed bizarre at the time.   Again, my guess would be that the display WAS supposed to include a case of molten man figs but hasbro couldn't get them out in time. Or think of how all those Corvus Glaive preorders were cancelled by WM because all they got was 4 per store that came in an aisle endcap display,  i assume WM was expecting many more cases of those sets (which did come around, but much later).  I'm not gonna speculate what happened with the Binary figure.

All that said,   all of 2019's waves did show up at my local stores sooner or later (except endgame wave 3) so I'll probably stick with hunting in the wild and occasionally picking up a figure from amazon if it is in stock already.   But obviously in some places local stores don't order every wave and in some places the hot figures go quickly and then its just the same old pegwarmers for months afterwards.

Happy 2020 Forum Fans!  It's been months since I added any remarks since my X-Men cravings were satisfied with all the 2019 vintage, 2PK and 3PK releases.  I have ordered vintage Storm with the black suit (the one I really preferred) and I was going to take it easy.  I had convinced myself to just order a figure if I was truly interested in it and not go searching.  Even though this strayed from my X-Men aesthetic , I was interested in the Shang-Chi figure from the Demogoblin wave.  I have the comics and followed the character from the early days.  After seeing some video reviews, I was drawn to search for it since Hasbro Pulse was out of stock.  I checked out a Target near where I work on my way home and found only the two Spider Man figures from the wave, so with today being my day off (taking my car for some repairs)  I was about to do some HUNTING.  I hit one Target and found the same two figures on a peg.  I then ventured to another Target, where in the past I have been successful in finding something that I wasn't looking for. No Shang-Chi but to my surprise there was the entire FF/Super Skrull wave!  Doctor Doom, She-Hulk et al.  I always admired Doctor Doom as a top tier baddie. and for the time being I picked up him and She-Hulk.  As I was venturing around, I was checking for the Stepford Cuckoos as well and in my travels I came upon a Walgreens that i was unaware of.  So again I was amazed and shocked to find a Dani Moonstar and four of them!  I grabbed one and made my way to Walmart, another Target and GC , before calling it a day.  Alas no Shang-Chi or any other finds but unexpected plastic was found.

well this is odd, for the 1st time in ages I found a sign of new ML wave at my local Walmart. All was left was shang chi. I really just wanted the spideys (oct and velocity suit) so I left shang chi hanging on the peg. I found it odd that the velocity suit wasn't there since theres so much talk of it being the pegwarmer of the wave

I found the Spideys today at my local WAL-MART. No sign of Shang Chi. I did pick up a Dagger to make a White Queen custom.

I received the new Spider-Man wave today from DorkSide.  I can't remember ever being less excited for a wave before.  I hate having instant buyer's remorse before I even open something. 😕

Lol, I could have told you that before you pre-ordered it. The only figure I want is Vulture and even that I was thinking about waiting for discounted prices. I think everything else will end up on sale for about $15.00 or 10.00 loose.

Picked up Superior Octopus and Velocity Suit at Gamestop, they're running a 20% off collectibles promo, so got them for the same price as Pulse.  If my luck keeps up l'll slowly cancel my Pulse orders since they can't seem to meet demand on even the less wanted figures.

Saw a lone Thing at my local WM. Kind of annoying since i was there yesterday and there was no FF wave, but i assume it was just one collector who bought a whole set and an extra Doom.  I only want Doom so now i'll check the other nearby WM tomorrow in the hopes of spotting him.

My hunt wasn't entirely in vain though as i found a Shang-chi at my local WG. They didn't have anyone else from the wave and i checked the other 2 WG in my area but they had nothing new (altho a lot of Dani's and Emma Frosts).  So that's one i can cross of my must-have list for 2020, with 4 remaining (Doom, Vulture, White Rabbit, Stepford Cuckoos) with Cosmic Ghost Rider a strong contender to make that list too.  I'm sure Shang-Chi will be available at a cheaper price at some point but that's OK, with a small must-have list i don't really mind paying msrp to get him sooner, plus there is something to be said for supporting stores that carry ML figs.

Checked my only remaining local Gamestop (the other one closed last week), they had a Cara Dune but no new marvel stuff. Was tempted to get her due to the 20% off sale, but i dunno, i guess i'm just not that big on collecting star wars figures these days, altho i loved the Mandalorean series.

Went to the other WM near me, they had exactly 3 of each gamerverse Spidey.  I'm at a loss to explain how that occurred, especially since i was just at this WM on Friday and no sign of this wave then.  Maybe they just pulled Spidey's from the cases they had and plan to put the rest out later, that's the best i can come up with anyhow.

I ran into a similar situation with the Avengers EndGame third wave. Was in my local WM and there was zero new product. Literally in the next day and the were one each of the Iron Man and Cap. No others in sight, as a matter of fact the rest of the wave never showed as far as I know .  At least I never saw them.

During my search I checked websites from GameStop, BBTS, EE. Most had both Cap and Iron Man in stock while the rest were still designated as pre orders. So maybe certain retailers get certain figures from an assortment early? 

I ended up trading in some old PS4 games and ended up with enough credit at GameStop to order the remaining 3rd EndGame wave. The only place I ever saw them in the wild was weeks after my order came in I happened to be in a FYE. gladly passed on the $4 up charge...

Huh. I wonder if they are sending out cases of just the spider-figures.  Otherwise the only scenario is they put out 3 cases, and sold 3 each of the other 4 characters without anybody buying  any spiderman figs, which doesn't strike me as likely at all.

the only place i've seen endgame wave 3 in the wild was FYE (where they were charging like $28 per figure) and i saw the Cap at Gamestop (but just him).  Kinda weird as it seems like Walmart and Target  would've wanted to stock up on this wave for the holidays, but mostly i just saw the Prof Hulk wave restocked everywhere instead.
