  1. There are some mighty tough choices to make for a top 5. But, I’m gonna go with ... 5. Retro Rogue 4. Nimrod 3. Retro Wave Spider-Man 2. Gray Black Widow 1. Strong Guy BAF I think those 5 are the figures that I have had the most connection to in 2020.

  2. Between the time I had Rogue, Gambit and Deluxe Black Widow in my Target cart and the time I added my Paypal, my total became $1 cheaper. Turns out Rogue got sold out. I was this close to paying regular price for two figures and not getting a third one free. Thank god I caught that lol Hopefully they add more Rogues online so I can score this deal.

  3. Got 'em! Unfortunately our numbers here have also been surging so it's not beyond the realm of possibility that some sort of lockdown will happen here too 😞

  11. I have been trying to get one around Jacksonville, FL area. Yesterday I walked into the Gamestop by my house and when I asked about the Punisher War Machine the guy who works there said they didn't know what I was talking about. Out of curiosity I call that same Gamestop today, somehow the guy remembered who I was, and he tells me they had them yesterday but sold them before I got there. I told them wth, they said yesterday they didn't even know what it was. This guy is a freaking liar. To finish it off he says "we will not get any more of these". I wish I had Gamestops as nice as yours with honest people.

  12. I don't get the hate on Cannonball. Yes, I agree that legs would have been a nice add, but the figure does look really good with other figures as is. I like it.

  16. Ok... story time. This is is the utterly ridiculous, unbelievably frustrating, but overall happy ending true story of what it took to get my 80th Anniversary Captain America. So I’ve been watching on Brickseek and the Walmart website for any movement of Cap to “in stock” and available for ship or in store pickup status. On Tuesday I see that my closest Walmart is listing the figure as “in stock” and available for in store purchase with 5 quantity in stock. I rush to Walmart on my way home from work and arrive to the same worthless toy aisle full of Wasps, Gwenpools, and Captain Marvels. I see a few remnants of the Caliban wave that weren’t there the last time I was in, so it’s clear that they do, in fact, stock new figures at some point. I see stock carts and boxes in other departments around toys and find an employee. I ask him if he can help me find an item that their website says is in stock in the store, and when I tell him that there are none in the toy aisle he says it must be in the clearance aisle. I tell him that it’s a brand new product and there’s no way it’s on clearance, so he pulls out his iPhone/scanner combo and looks up the item with the UPC I provide. He he tells me that it’s in the stock room but not on the floor, so that’s why the system shows it in stock. This employee works in lawn and garden and is the only one there for his department, so he can’t go back and check. I tell him I understand, and he says that the toy department is coming in from midnight to 7 AM to do a reset of the department for Christmas. Wednesday morning I get up and move through my morning routine so that I’m ready to leave the house at 7:00 AM with enough time to hit Walmart and then go to work. I get to Walmart at 7:20 and the toy aisle is the same worthless stock. Disappointed but not surprised, I go to work. Around 11:00 I take advantage of a need to run out for an errand to pick up something for one of my employees, and head back to Walmart. The toy aisle hasn’t changed, but I see an employee with a stock cart and some toys a few aisles over. I explain things to him, and he agrees to go check the stock room. The employee comes back a few minutes later and tells me that the toy shipment is between a whole bunch of pallets that are still shrink wrapped and double stacked and that there’s no way for him to find it. I work in a warehouse, so I know what new product pallets are like when they come off the truck. I thank him for checking, and resolve myself to trying to acquire the figure through 3rd party means. I haven’t seen a Walmart exclusive Marvel Legend in the store since Falcon and Winter Soldier from “Civil War”. I have no faith in my local store to ever have the figure available, so when another board member puts it out there that his area has extra Caps I sent a message that I was interested. Messages back and forth during the day result in no extra Caps for me (Thanks again for trying!). So, I resign myself to a long hunt ahead of me. I keep checking the Walmart website and it still shows 5 in stock which means that it hasn’t hit the floor to be consumed by scalpers. This evening I’m at home with my son just checking things on my iPad while he watches a movie on Netflix. I refresh the Walmart page, and the in stock quantity has changed to 4. My wife is away until tomorrow morning on a staff retreat. I have a two year old who I can smell needs a diaper change contently watching a movie on Netflix. I need a plan. I open the Netflix app and look for the “Next Avengers” animated movie that my son is watching. It’s available to download and watch offline. I start downloading the movie and getting my shoes and keys together. Once it’s downloaded I queue it up to where he’s at on the TV and make the switch to hand him the iPad. i let him keep watching the movie on the iPad as I change his diaper and I tell him that it’s time to go on an adventure with daddy. I refresh the Walmart page on my phone and the in stock quantity has dropped to 2. I get my son strapped in to his car seat and give him the iPad and I race to Walmart. I get stuck at a red light and refresh the page on my phone again. 1 left in stock. I make it Walmart, transfer my son and the iPad to a cart, and power walk inside. I bob and weave around the people of Walmart and make it to the toy aisle. Four trips to the same Walmart in as many days, and I finally have it. Hasbro, if you’re reading... please stop giving exclusives to Walmart. Collectors will buy your product without the need to create artificial scarcity. I know you’re not trying to make these figures so difficult to acquire, but Walmart doesn’t understand distribution. They have a store in every town in America but don’t know how to turn this physical network in to a virtual one. Amazon, Entertainment Earth, Big Bad Toy Store, Game Stop, Target, Best Buy, and many others sell plenty of Marvel Legends that can support exclusives. I wish this were the end... but we all know there will be another Walmart exclusive 6 months from now.

  17. My wife went scouting for me and sent me a picture of that display. The pegs had labels for 80th anniversary and X-men retro but were empty. Looks like they finally found those Binary figures in their warehouse and are putting them out now.

  19. Gigantor, This is the Avengers' squad that got me hooked on the comic book, minus Wanda Maximoff and Clint Barton as Goliath. With all my coin going to the 80th Anniversary releases, ( Wolvie and old Jade Jaws arrived today) who's got dough to get a custom sized Goliath. Thanks for the pics!!!!!

  21. I'm kinda on the same boat. I'm as cheapskate as one can get. However when I look at a wave and see something that I think will be hard to find in stores (Professor X, Jubilee/Beast, Sinister, Storm aka Popular figures that are one-per-box) I'd rather not tempt fate. That said I also pre-ordered Gambit from the Caliban wave and Nightcrawler from the Sinister wave, the double packed characters from those waves, so I guess I just know myself too much lol. I can allow myself to splurge because X-men characters are the only ones I collect.

  29. A local Target had the Marvel Studios Iron Man/Thanos/Doctor Strange and Hulk/Hulkbuster sets on the shelf today. When I tried to purchase them, I was denied at the register due to the 8/1 street date. I really dislike this pointless street date horseshit.

  32. The fact that Wolvie will be a top seller goes without saying, but you're totally off about Maddrox. First, the fact that he's a new character will make him one of the "better" sellers. Second, even if he sold less favorably with the casual fans, there's more than enough of us dedicated fans that will be clamouring to get multiples. I personally feel like we may be lucky if we're able to get maybe three, at best. Lastly, I'm not sure how long you've been a collector, but Multiple Man has been on the ML most wanted list since the Toybiz days. It's inconceivable that it's taken this long to be done. 100 percent, Storm & lame ass Gladiator will be the peg warmers. Once again you've echoed my thoughts exactly. It's kinda scary.

  37. You'll have your phone with you. If worst came to worst, you can order from there. As for ordering additional stuff, I think you should concentrate on the SDCC merch only. If you waste time ordering other things, you may find the Exclusives sold out right under you.

  38. I picked up the Thor/Hulk 2-pack today. i wasn't looking to get Executioner and Enchantress, but for what it's worth, all of the Enchantresses looked horrifying.

  39. From what I've seen in stores, you are really rolling the dice on Enchantress by buying her unseen like that. Hopefully her eyes turn out ok.

  40. Where are you? sorry, Northeast Texas. No where near you. I think you are in california if I remember your posts right. Yep Cal, nothing here yet. Did find one MJ and Spidey a couple weeks ago though.What part? The TRUs in San Jose (The Plant and Blossom Hill), Sunnyvale, and San Mateo were getting shipments end of last week then selling out fast. My cousin actually got me one in Concord on Saturday night at 8pm and there were two. Either no one goes to that one or they put them out late. I also randomly went to the one in Dublin on Fathers Day late morning and got the Mary Jane two pack. Maybe no one goes to that either? I'm up in Santa Rosa, they've been ultra slow to getting the newest waves in but I found the MJ pack hidden behind a bunch of 3.75 movie Falcons that have been warming the shelf. On a side note, Hasbro your 3.75 line is on life support. Do something or pull the plug mercifully.

  41. Even more blatant when you consider we've gotten, as BAF's-The Rhino. Juggernaut, Sandman and the Abomination. All belonging to the Hulk's rogues' gallery. Fortunately, most of the previous Hulks work with them.

  42. No confirmation as yet. At that presser Hasbro had last week, they made it an effort NOT to reveal/confirm what the BAF is or substantiate any rumors. Right now the rumor is Skurge the Executioner. Not know whether it's the comic or movie version. This makes sense because if it's the movie version, or even if it's the Hulk (this being the movie version as well), they haven't revealed the movie figures yet with the exception being movie Thor. Hasbro via Marvel is always tight lipped about that. My guess is we'll find out around July 20th or thereabouts. Heh.
