Im lost i have seen ml figures on sale, specifically the newer waves and 10 yr studios. Please help me understand why? It is a good thing for us, but im scared they are going to stop making them, due to losses to the company.

Yeah, let me know if you see Iceman or underwear Deadpool on sale anywhere. (: To assuage your concerns, though, Hasbro definitely isn't taking any direct losses by retailers putting figures on sale, I assure you. They might be taking indirect losses if the retailer is clearing the line out, but I'm sure Hasbro isn't discounting anything on the wholesale end. At the rate they're putting out new waves, there's no way it's a failing line.

My local Best Buy had the Sauron Wave figs down to 14 and someone in a collector group I am in said they are down to 10 now...works for me. Hopefully they still have Bishop.

Those 10 yr figures were over priced anyway. I am playing the waiting game with my local Wally World on the shelf warmers they have. I picked up the Thor and Cap 2 packs for 25 on clearance. Picked up two Ironman 2 packs for 13 bucks each, that was nice as I wanted the suit body for customs. They still have the Antman 2 pack for 45, four of them, been sitting on the shelf since last November or so. Same with Red Skull. I priced matched with Walmart.com when they were 18 on there. Wish I could have bought more. They have eight of them on the shelf I am waiting on. Low key salty that Red Skull apparently got clearanced out at 5 bucks at some walmarts in other areas. Id have some serious army building going on.....ah well....my waiting game continues.

Picked up Falcon/Winter Soldier for 20 at Target, Ross/Killmonger for 12. Theres one more of those, I may pick it up, again, because I want more suit bodies.

Doesn't help the company that they are putting out wave after wave after wave barely giving people time to get one before another one is out.

Amazon is making things more competitive, with their pricing structure. The most popular figures are still hard to find at retail or below; Amazon is just making it hard to compete with pricing on the other figures, so some other places are marking them down, too, to compete.

    • Yep Ive seen the listing sadly it ran out really quickly and couldnt pick one up, dont know if amazon was just starting to create the listing and some managed to add the figure to their carts in the right time, or if it just sold out quickly, in any case its probably going to be restocked later, hopefully by then we'll know more info on it, from the images the figure seems like a straight repaint of the previous green hulks but does seem to have a new headsculpt.
    • I guess because I grew up reading Marvel comics in an era where Marvel adhered to the listed hgts/wgts of their characters & drew them in their correct hgts, I got used to thinking it would always be that way & that the editors, who's main job is to spot/point out inaccuracies/mistakes & have the writer/artist correct them & nowadays, I just feel like the staff at Marvel could give 2 poops about respecting the source material. An artist wants to draw the Thing as an 8 footer, editor says, "feh, knock yourself out", Same thig seems to be going on at Hasbro, who ever's in charge at Marvel of OKing said figure should have looked at the Thing prototype & said, "nope, too big in hgt, knock off an inch",  When it comes to characters that are heavily muscled/thick like Thanos, Hulk, Thing, Juggernaut, Abom, Rhino, I'd happily lose the double elbow, double knee POA in place of being the correct scale & thickness. All those figures mentioned are at least an inch + too tall. Thanos is listed as being 6'7 but thanks to the MCU, he's now an 8 footer so of course the comics have to follow suit, Jugs was originally 6'10 but nope, let's push him up to almost 9ft tall for no other reason than artistic license cuz ya know, being 6'10 isn't big enough. Kingpin BAF is at least an inch too big as well, he's 6'8, now he is drawn as being a 7-8 footer as well.  I know that the odds of ever getting any or all of these large sized characters ever getting re-done at their more correct hgts is slim to none but I just hope that Hasbro does their best to make characters truer to their actual hgts in the comics with future releases.  I'll wait for a Perez based Beast to be done as the Jim Lee version is over scaled as well. Hank McCoy is 5'11, not 6'6. 
    • This doesn’t surprise me, and does, in fact, please me. Right after the SDCC Vintage style Hulk was unveiled I saw someone make a grey Hulk custom and it looked far better than the official one.
    • There are now pics on the main page:   Marvel Legends Grey Hulk Action Figure Coming From Hasbro?!?
    • so it begins. Get your color wheels ready folk. LOL  Joking aside, I am delight to get this out of the way. Should this be consider a FA version or a pre-Joe Fixit version? The only complaint I have is it's on the wrong sculpt as grey Hulk is alot shorter the his green counterpart.
