How did your peg warmer picks turn out


Recommended Posts

I know theres already a peg warmer topic out there but it's gone a bit stale so since a few of the waves involved have been out for a while already let's discuss what the peg warmers are looking to be so far in our respective areas. List the characters in order. One being the biggest peg warmer.


Spider-Man (Sandman):


1. Ms. Marvel - she started strong but puttered out in the end as is the case with most female characters. No surprise.

2. Spider UK - called it. New buck or not, he's every bit as boring as the comic character. Still not as boring as Karl tho.

3. Shocker - this actually was a shocker to me. I thought he'd rate higher as he in such demand. Was it the massive head? Maybe? Probably? Hell ya it was.

4. Jackal - right about where I thought he'd fall when all the dust cleared. Still a nice figure.

5. Spidey 2099 - love the look, love the new buck. He was my 3rd personal favorite. Size of the melon was a little much on this one too.

6. Black Spidey - he's just such a cool looking update.

7. Green Goblin - got mine online & have not seen even one in the wild.


GOTG (Titus)


1. Star Lord - please, make them stop. What....? We're getting 2 more this year? Well at least one of them will have to be a comic version, right? What....? Both are gonna be simple MCU costume changes? And,one of them is gonna come with his dad who looks like that hippie I buy my organic vegetables from at the farmers market on Sunday? Oh, the humanity!

2. Drax - as I said, a new head and a new ashy complexion does not a new figure make.

3. Star Lord - nuff said.

4. Star Lord - maybe a little more said.

5. Yondu, Vance Astro & Kid Nova - they all seem to be moving about the same. And I don't care, call him Nova all you want, he's still effing KID NOVA.

6. Darkhawk - this was an amazingly executed figure. Wish they could all be this good.

7. Angela - apply above comments. Everything about her is unique. This is a beautiful, awesome effort & the scalpers have been out en force. Good luck if you ain't found her yet.


X-Men (Warlock):


1. Wolverine - tho I think this will change once the casual fans catch up with the hardcore hunters. Wolvie always brings the ratings.

2. Sunfire - I personally love this figure but I think they're actually giving these things away with every bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos at Walgreens.

3. Shatterstar - this design only held up for like 3 years in the 90s. In today's world it's beyond cheesy.

4. Dazzler - I got over the skates but I guess 70s disco style & ankle articulation don't play well together. News to me.

5. Cyclops - honestly had no problem locating him.

6. Polaris - she only slightly edges out Cyclops, but most likely cuz we've already had a few of him already.

7. Colossus - he's big and bad ayass & he ain't nowhere to be found. Love this figure.


BTW, I live & hunt in the TX, NM, OK tri-state area. How's it look in your neck of the woods?

Complete opposite on X-Men in Los Angeles, for me anyway. I've been to a ton of Walgreens, TRU's and Targets all throughout the city. Have seen Polaris everywhere. Dazzler and Shatterstar and Logan have been around. I've only seen Colossus once, the time i bought him, same with Sunfire. Have been looking everywhere for Cyclops, still no luck. GOTG have all been pretty easy to find except for Angela. Star Lord and Drax are everywhere. Only seen Angela in a store once and someone else had just beaten me to it. Finally broke down and ordered one online when i found a good price on Amazon. Cyclops is still pricey though online, will keep hunting. If it's easy to find by you it'll prob be easy to track down eventually. So many targets seem to only have shelves full of Misty Knight for some reason.

I've seen Sunfire, polaris and Wolverine almost everywhere. Saw one shatterstar, didnt buy it, was in checking for a new shipment the next week and it was gone. Cyclops and Collosus..none. GOTG line has been everywhere, I've seen the complete line a few times on shelves.Sandman wave was breifly on the shelves, I saw one Goblin and Ms. Marvle in the wild but already had them, got them as singles from BBTS. I have never seen shocker in the wild though.
