Hard to say with Spider-Man vaves. I've seen waves hit everywhere at once, and yet there are waves I've never seen at brick-n-mortar. Unless it happens to be a movie tie-in, its pretty much a crap-shoot.

I saw the Kingpin wave the other day at my Walmart. I figure if my Walmart has it in, every Walmart must be getting them in good numbers because my Walmart is the worst.

I was lucky and was able to snag her online yesterday after I saw a facebook post in a collector group I m on. I have still not seen a Reed or a Surfer or a Magik in any of my walgreens around me.. and there are a BUNCH around me. I was lucky one day and found a Thing out of nowhere. Its a jungle out there. To any extent tho, I didnt try and go out of my way to find any of those, even thing, but Mystique is def one Ive been waiting for since Toybiz did her and never liked that sculpt.

Very true! I wasted at least a half a tank of gas driving 45 miles out of town, as I only have one walgreens in town! I ended up caving in and getting one off ebay, I guess $27 isn’t as bad as it could get! My only issue with the ebay route is you don’t get the “pick of the litter”, so to speak! I guess the way to go is get real friendly with th walgreens staff and see if they’d let me know when they are getting shipments. Anyways, Thanks Jay C, for all you do!!

One of the great constants of the toy collecting hobby is that EVERYONE thinks their Walmart is the worst, though in my case, I'd put money on it.

In any case, the most I've seen at Walmart lately are a bunch of Symbiote Deadpools, the Captain Marvel wave, and the timely arrival of Black Panther series 2. Thanks for the heads up though, I'll keep my eyes open.

Received both Mystique figures today, and while I'm certainly glad Hasbro produced her, I really wish they'd put just a bit more effort into it. Just me here, but I'd preferred a more robust body buck for her, along the lines of Rogue. The paints all look good, and I'm oh-so-glad they went with white instead of that yellow "wash" that the old Toybiz figures had (some had blue, and that was bad too). Boots and gloves are painted on (ugh!) not sculpted, but at least end in the pointed tops she often wears ( to be fair, she's had a number of designs, including thigh-length boots, so I cant gripe). Her signature gold skulls belt came out well, no black wash this time around. Be nice if they were a skosh bigger. The face sculpt is excellent, and the hair colour/shading is great, but the hair itself is so stiff, it prevents most vertical range of motion. No double jointed elbows or ab crunch on this one, unlike the Toybiz version, but she does have the standard double joined knees and torso "rocker". She comes with 2 swappable heads (Rogue and Lilandra) and I must say the Lilandra is fantastic. She also has two weapons, though why theyre yellow, is beyond me. All in all, good figure, but could've been better.

I got mine yesterday and shes a pretty good figure. Not much to her but that head sculpt is fantastic and makes the overall package. I feel the buck works well for her. Ive never seen her in the voluptuous curvy portrayal ever so having that buck makes no sense to me, but even if it she was, it seems Hasbro is done with it which is stupid. I dont ever recall a yellow wash on the toybiz one either, I think that is the plastics color fading but I could be wrong. They did have a weird looking blue wash for whatever reason tho. Definitely agree the skulls could be bigger. For me shes essential and a huuuuge upgrade from the Toybiz version even with very little effort in doing so. Not a big fan of the painted on clothing but I take what I can get if it looks good enough. Im not a fan of the super super skinny female body mold that shes on but it does it well enough. Again for me, the head pulls it all together. Fits the proportions and the overall aesthetic of who she is.

I used to enjoy going out toy hunting but not anymore.

Same.  My buddy and I had a standing Friday afternoon hunt back in college.  We picked up some really great finds back in those early to mid Toybiz days.  It was often the highlight of my week.  We tried to go out this past summer on an old-fashioned hunt and it was just saddening.  We gave it up for good that night.

That said, I've had pretty good luck with the Walgreens exclusives in-store (I'm usually in there once a week for something else anyway) and last week while stopping in for a Gatorade, lo and behold there were three Mystiques just sitting there.  I was able to take care of me and my buddy and leave one for the next lucky soul.

I pretty much love the figure - definitely an upgrade from the Sentinel Series - but is anyone else going to #$## with me about the sloppy white paint all over the inside and top of her belt?  It can't just be me; all three of the ones I saw in the store were a mess down there.

Most the Walgreens exclusives get put online at least once if not more. Some are harder to get like Thing and Silver Surfer but most the others from what i've seen have been made fairly readily available. As far as exclusives go Walgreens and Target are usually the two best places for being able to find them. TRU used to be pretty bad and Walmart is the worst. At the end of the day though if its a figure you have to seriously hunt around for, meaning you have to go out of your way to a store multiple times to check and see if a they have it, paying an extra $10 isn't that big a deal when you take into account how much you probably wasted in gas as well as time going to the store trying to find it at regular retail. I used to enjoy going out toy hunting but not anymore. It generally ends in frustration and waste of time. I don't condone scalping in general and those that try and charge like three times the cost of regular retail are just ridiculous, and of course in a perfect world it would be nice if we could just walk into any Walgreens or whatever store carrying these things and have a reasonable expectation that it will be well stocked there, but we all know I think that's not usually the case.

It's even more frustrating when you live in Canada! (no Walgreens here, and they don't ship International). Plus, many local specialty shops here are just as bad and often times worse than online scalpers. Sigh. Any how, thanks for the heads up on Mystique though, because fortunately I have sympathetic relatives living in the US that I can send items to. 

BTW...do fans here help other fans out with buying exclusives? (ala for fans who live outside the CONUS)?

Missed out the first time. Was able to order it this time. Hopefully it goes through because the last time I ordered the silver surfer from their website my order was cancelled twice. I really hate store exclusives in 2019.

I luckily found mine for the same price. It’s a great figure! I love all the accessories,except the weapons! I know Hasbro has to be careful with Disney, but since this was an exclusive figure, why couldn’t they have given us more realistic weapons for her?

I really hope people are able to grab her at the sales price.  She is a phenomenal figure and at that price point more than a steal.  It’s likely she will pop back up again soon.  Thing and Surfer went in and out of stock for a bit before they finally sold out completely.

Only bought it because I stumbled on it at my local EB Games. I had intended to sell it for a profit, but the owner of my comic book store wanted it, and since he's such a nice guy, I traded it for Omega Red.

All marvel legends are on sale for 13.99 in the southern Minneapolis area. There are a bunch of Mystique on the shelves and some of the next Black Panther wave. You have to have a Walgreens reward card to get the sale price.

The Mystique figure is definitely a better sculpt than the Tozbiz version. i am happy with it! Just glad i found it right away when the sale hit!

Walgreens has driven me crazy all day today, ugh. Sometimes the listing says out of stock online, others there's an add to cart button but when you click it, it gives you a message about having 0 quantity available. :wacko: I'm going to keep trying, though. If I can't get the sale price, it won't be for lack of trying! *fist thump* :wink:
