Hasbro Fan-Monday Live-Stream For February Coverage

Well, as seems to be customary Target is the cheapest at $22.99. Of course, you'll have to search each figure individually to find them, but that's no problem. Also, as seems customary, while Amazon no longer "Price Matches", they have brought down their prices on the Bonebreaker wave to match the lowest on the market, which happens to be Target. There should be no reason to expect that they won't eventually do the same with this wave. Still, just to make a point I will pre-order all them through Amazon and then cancel them to let them know I found them cheaper at Target. It's the little things like this that make for a better day.

If you search Marvel Legends and choose the filter to display the newest listings first, then all of them should be at the top.

My first thought was can I pop off his hair, paint it brown, and then throw it on top of the Gambit head 🤔

Man wow, I waited this morning for the Controller wave to hit Gamestop online, it has not yet, but I waited for Rhino as well, as soon as he went on pre-order he sold out in about 5 minutes, I had him in the cart but in Check out process the site crashed and seconds later he was pre-ordered out of stock, record time 5 minutes, thanks to everyone who probably ordered 3 of him at a time, really cool.

 I already can see many people using this hair as their to go for  Gambit, likely they will give Animated series Gambit that same hair. I love the colors and paint apps on Speedball, headsculpt is great,  but it's annoying they keep using those low set small shoulders, when they already introduced all new shoulder with Shang Chi and Falcon figures, they do wonders for that body mold, while these shoulders just massacre aesthetics of that whole body, Retro spidey body also would have been better choice for Speedball.

Here's where we need to find that medium ground between what Walgreens did (1 per order) and what you encountered. I think 2 per order is totally reasonable while also bringing the scalping down to a minimum. Sorry you missed out.

As great as everyone seems to think this Sunfire buck is, I think it's really weird looking, especially in this case (and with Pyro as well). The neck is too long and the butterfly joints have too large gaps. Don't these all get designed by the same art studio. How can you go from the nice tight butterflies on Hercules and even the old Pizza Spidey buck to this. Overrated and improperly used. If any buck needs to go away it's this one. Just look at that picture where he's standing with Spidey. Of the two bucks, seriously can you tell me that is the better of the two. I think some people were just so thirsty for something new that they somehow convinced themselves that it was the superior buck, when it's just outright awkward.

Yeah I'm not super miffed, I pre-ordered him from Amazon, we will see how the pans out, but I'm sure there will be more chances to get him once he releases or closer to it, it just really blows my mind how savage these buyers are, 5 minutes, dude I had him in cart and was checking out when he was ripped out of stock, it's just not cool, because you know it's gotta be scalpers buying the most they can, no way it can't be, nobody really needs more then 1 Rhino, he's not an army builder, and likely at least 40% of collectors already have the BAF, why do they need the other one...sure they can get it, but chill, I get it maybe people want 2, one to open one to display, sure, but if a figure sells out that quick, quick enough someone who actually witnessed the figure go up on the site in real time to put it in my cart and by check out (less then 1 minute from the figure going up for pre-order) and then the whole site crashes, I refresh (now 3 minutes in to this whole thing) and he's out of stock....you have to be kidding me, it just makes you feel sad this is what it's come to, if you need more then 1 , can you wait until we all get 1 before you get multiples...the insane nature of this hobby is disheartening sometimes.

I agree, Hasbro should use the redone Shang Chi mold over the Sunfire mold every time

4/20? Plant-Man's time to shine!

Looks like we won't have to wait until the 20th of March for the next plastic fix. Most likely it will be the MCU figures for L+T, and will be on the Marvel site itself.

 

That he chose a Hawkeye gif makes me think we'll probably see official renders of the Clint and Kate figures. Maybe Moon Knight too since they. mentioned the show during the livestream.

I can almost guarantee we won't see moon knight until at least the Friday after the first episode, the June 1st.

I’ve nothing to base this on but I’m predicting the Moon Knight suit we’ve seen so far will be the ancient MK suit that Khonshu’s last avatar wore and that by the time the season ends Mark/Steven will be wearing an updated modern look. And I don’t mean the Mr. Knight version either. I guessing something that looks less like a mummy
