Does anyone here remember the Wal-Mart Best of Wave from Toy Biz

Recommended Posts

 

I ask this because I was watching a video from Solidsnakeinmypants and he mentioned that it never came out. But I know it came out and now I’m just wondering if it was one of those really rare cases of figures that only came out in a few stores. I know because I bought all the Variants from it. I went to Wal-Mart in Hagerstown MD at about 1:00 am that night and found a case Marked Wal Mart Best of Marvel Legends and opened it. It had One Dark Phoenix, one Phasing Ghost Rider, one Phasing Vision, one Goliath, one Deadpool, one Hawkeye, two regular Juggernauts, two brown Wolverines, one regular Phoenix, and one regular Vision. My numbers on these could be a little of but this is what I found and I wouldn't have my variants from this case without it. I do know that my friend who owns a comic store when I told him about my find looked all over for this case and found a few but they only had regular versions of the figures. Also at this time my Wal-Marts were getting a lot of the brown Wolverines stocking up. So does anyone else here remember seeing it or was it just so rare most people don’t believe it came out (like the last of the Fantatic Four movie figures).

I don't know if it never came out, I just know that I never personally saw that kind of a case assortment. If I had, at the time, I would have been flipping out and carrying the whole case to the register cause I could hardly find any of those figures on the pegs when they were in stores.

I was pretty sure it came out because I remember people freaking out when they were able to get them again. And then there were more on eBay at the time. Of course tons of us never saw it.

I've never saw that wave and heard it had been canceled. If I had seen them, well, I probably would have checked my local Walmarts (at the time I was living where I had access to about three) in order to pretty much collect the contents of the entire case/wave.

Yeah, I remember some Walmarts getting a case of these. I remember finding Deadpool this way years ago.

i don't think that the variant colored juggs ever got released. the rest did i think ,but they had the original series numbers on the card.

It's funny to hear of the best of wave. I encountered 2 kinds. When I first got into ML, it was in the midst of Wave 3. I tried to find the older series but no luck. One day around the Wave 5 drop, one of the local Wal-Marts had a huge box display of figures from the first 3 waves. Most had no comic books in them, just foil wrappers inside and the display bases. That is how I was able to get the Thing, Captain America, the Human Torch and Iron Man.

About a year or so later, I encountered another box mix at the very same Wal-Mart that had Juggernaut and a few others.

 

Maybe they only sent out these to select Wal-Marts, because once they were gone, I never saw those sets again.

I went through something like 10 cases of this series, only scored the variant case twice though.

 

It's funny because at the time, I was really only looking for Dark Phoenix, Phasing GR, and Phasing Vision because they were really rare.

 

Each case had 2 Deadpools... and I think to myself now.. man, I coulda had 20+ Deadpools and sold them on ebay today for close to 2 GRAND! There were also plenty of Juggernauts I passed on.. sheesh

 

 

the black/yellow Juggy and the white Phoenix never were released. Toybiz just replaced them with the regular versions in the series.
