Why do I do this to myself?

Reed, Sue and Ben were scheduled to arrive from Target Monday, the 22nd. Then, they were rescheduled to arrive today. Then Target revises delivery BACK to Monday, only UPS, who turned it over to the Post Office, have delivery scheduled for TUESDAY! Mind you, while all this is going on, my order arrived here, in my city, YESTERDAY afternoon.

Given I also had to pick up Thanksgiving dinner groceries today while suffering from the nasal infection from Hell, my day might have been a total write-off . . . if I hadn't been able to pick up my Walgreens Nova (AWESOME figure), and snagged the entire AOA 2.0 wave at Wally-World. Oh, and Target knocked five bucks off my order.

Some days you get the bear, some days the bear gets you . . . and some days you get the bear but he takes a big ole crap on you anyway.

Here is an odd one. Last Friday I Acquired the SKU for the Eternals Ajak to use on Brickseek. Every Walmart  within 50 miles suddenly had 6+ so I drove over to the closest one. Nothing in sight and a worker even looked the item up but said it wouldn’t be out until December ( same as what website says). But added “ it could be in seasonal as well.” 

This next part is on me: thinking I’ve NEVER seen a Legend in seasonal I blew her off and left.

i was back in Walmart today on an unrelated task, checked the toy aisle again and nothing. On a lark I went to seasonal area and nothing as well. But... one aisle over in their Clearance area was 6+ Ajak marked down to $10 each. The same figure I had pre-ordered on Walmart.com that they have listed at $22.97 with a December release date is in stores marked down to less than half off

grabbed 2. 1 because I swore to never pay full price for any Eternal figure ( and today’s find cemented that! Never paid full price for the entire wave plus Deluxe/ Exclusives!) 2nd for an extra “unmasked “ head in case I want to customize Santanico Pandemonium ‘s ugly little sister 😁

lesson: maybe check the clearance or seasonal aisle if the normal toy aisle is empty.

No telling where Sue and Ben are at this point. According to UPS tracking they turned it over to the Post Office Saturday, and it should be delivered tomorrow. According to Post Office tracking, they haven't received it yet (which would make delivery . . . problematic to say the least).

For Target's part, their cutting me a refund for the missing figures on top of the money they knocked off yesterday.

My shop got in our F4 retro stock today, and I have to say—I have no horse in this race—but Sue’s face looks fine. I feel for F4 fans who disagree, but she looks totally fine to me in person. One of the four we got in had the eyes painted a little high, which definitely looked weird, but the other three were okay. She looks radically different from other Sues, obviously, which I realize isn’t desirable—and I’m not saying she looks great—but I would have no problems with having that figure in my collection if I cared at all about her character.

This is good to know. This is the first time I’ve heard positive things about this Sue. I had actually started kinda looking for a cheap Walgreens or Skrull version in the event the Retro one was as bad as I’ve heard. Really hoping I can find one that looks like you’ve described

"...found the retro FF wave. Sue is hideous. Picked up High E and Psycho Man. Torch & Thing looked great!! Im very excited for these new figures..." 

What an amazing job they did on Psycho-Man. Its perfection. I was a little suprised to see that the High Evolutionary is so...small.

Same I was gonna get him for my X-Villains shelf but I think I'll hold off and see if he goes on sale.

I've always assumed he was a taller character but I guess every time I saw him the "camera" was always facing up to him.

Since High Evolutionary can change his size I never really questioned getting this "normal sized" one.  Most of my familiarity with the character is from Annihilation Conquest and some of his more recent appearances, where he is shown at average to slightly above average human height as well as being able to change to a larger size.

IMG_4063.thumb.JPG.2ad3b46f3f2450882a71d9d64a7a7597.JPGThis fiery lil lady showed up at my door today. Was somewhat on the fence about ordering her, but, I'm glad I did. She looks kinda dope, even with the bizarre fiery 'star-do'. Now, if Hasbro would kindly both give us a v.1 disco-hair Ms Marvel and a redo of v.2 (black suit...or is it v.2a?), I will be most happy indeed!

Nice! This one is definitely on the want list with Quasar. Certainly not my favored iteration of Carol Danvers, but lets be realistic. This is probably the closest we'll come to getting a Ms. Marvel figure for a minute.

I second that 1st App. and Warbird/Ms. Marvel request. Just give us those 2, and they can pack away the character never to touch again.

. . . at least until Marvel figures out how to fix everything they screwed up about her.

Since the beginning of the month I've picked up or received

  • Spider-Man 2099
  • Rage (clearance at GameStop)
  • Tigra
  • Invisible Woman modern (used to customize the head for retro Sue)
  • Invisible Woman retro
  • Mr. Fantastic retro
  • Human Torch retro
  • Thing retro
  • Psycho-Man
  • High Evolutionary
  • Hercules
  • Nova

I got a shipping notice for retro Sandman. That might be the last figure I get this year unless the Pulse exclusive versions of Johnny and Sue and the S.H.I.E.L.D. trooper back ship earlier than expected.

I've been hearing about a lot of people doing this. For my money, though, the only way this would work is if there were a corresponding "Clear" modern head to do the same swap on the upcoming clear Retro version. I mean, call me anal, but if I'm gonna drop the 25 bucks for a clear Retro Sue, it's gonna HAVE to match regular Retro Sue as close as possible.

Pretty good Black Friday haul: found Zombie Hunter Spidey to complete What If? Wave, Kingo to finally put the Eternals wave to rest, and completed the FF Retro wave by finding Torch, Sue, Evolutionary , and Psycho Man (at Meijers of all places) and  got Gold & Black Spidey as well as Shriek to  begin the No Way Home wave. 

Got $5 off Kingo but full price for the rest of the good figures.. 

Happily surprised the FF wave was so easy. Was worried about having to pay scalper prices for the Torch and (for some reason) the High Evolutionary.. Sue’s face in hand isn’t too bad.. thanks to the box art I can see what they were attempting.. still not as pretty as the previous two,

Agree 100%.. gave the head swap serious consideration but decided ( mostly due to having Sue in hand to see that her face isn’t as horrible as I thought it would be) that the hair would be too different.
