  1. i'm on the fence as well.


    i used to collect almost everything. (transformers, GI Joe, marvel, star wars... pretty much anything hasbro. not just because of the brand, but because they happen to have the license for all my favorite properties. and yes i have older toybiz stuff as well.)


    anyway, i got married and had kids. slowed WAYYYY down on collecting. almost gave up all together on tranformers. GI Joe is also rare since they put 25th/classics on infinite haitus. one in a while i will pick up a nice star wars vintage (recent ROTJ lukes have been great and i really want some starkillers!)

    but he only constant has been MARVEL.

    i will by pretty much anything avengers related. be it MU, Legends, and if funds allowed, i would get all the Hot Toys 12" figures but i know my wife would kill me in my sleep lol


    so yeah i have pretty much dwindled my collecting down to Marvel only. and even tat i am really debating with myself on what SCALE to collect. i mean come on, we got 3.75", 6", 7-8" (select), hot toys... i like the fact HT is actually for collectors, not viewed as "toys". so there is that, but the price is just guuhhhhh... not practical. i like detail of 6" Legends but size and scarce availability and limited characters is a bummer. MU is great but sometimes just seem cheap/crappy due to size.


    so i am stuck between what scale. i need to make a choice though, and sell off whatever scale i dont stick with. i am already letting my HT Iron Man Mk III go. its in the trade section here. i guess i am giving up on that scale (unless somebody tradesme a Mk VI for it and i get war machine as well? then i will get the rest of the avengers and i will be scared to sleep lol)


    sooooo really i have no idea. i have tons of prequel star wars stuff i want to get rid of for sure. also have sideshow 12" star wars i might let go.


    also considering the sale of my ENTIRE LOT of 25th joes. seriously its like 250+ figures from 2006 and up. not even sure what that would go for. $500 for all of them? only like a dozen are on card. i love displaying. all are complete though. i have OCD about losing parts. NEVER happens.


    anyway... doesnt help i just got a project car. really, REALLY need to cut back on collecting if i am going to dump money into another drift car. bleh. boys and their toys... never enough money.


  2. i would keep that one mint and maybe find a loose one to pose/display. thats too perfect to open! or just buy the new hasbro versions.

    i usually open everything but that one? keep it MISB!


    so back on topic,

    i was at the walmart in waikiki and scored the LAST captain america 6" avenger. not sure if its the "detailed" second release version. trying to look on google images to see what that looks like. mine has two different colors of blue around the shoulders if thats it? otherwise looks kinda plain with not much paint app. just molded plastic colors.

    dont ask how much i paid. almlost cheaper on amazon. : ( hawaii = $$$$ but i like to find my figures in the wild.

    just thankful i can replace the old cap movie version since he is so short compared to fury, thor, and iron man!

  3. Thanks! any little bit helps. i will keep my eyes peeled for SM and/or Robinsons. i've been told there is a larger city nearby, already forgot what it was. i will find out and try there. i hear Subic Bay is very small.


    and yes, im trying to find waves that have not yet hit the US. i remember seeing lots of stuff popping up in PI before it arrived stateside. most of the time its hong kong, but not always.


    thanks again!

  4. what war machine is that? link? pic?


    i recently scored storm, psylocke, and x-23. dunno why all female lol but i already have a good thor, iron fist, and not interested in the rest of the wave. and shadowlands was a great story but a drop in the marvel bucket.

    i did see adam warlock/thanos, spidey/capt. brit, and bullseye/DD packs but uh... i passed. then i saw some scalper swoop in INCHES behind me and grab them like a feinding crack addict.

    almost told him to calm down lol i was even wearing a transformers shirt. no mistaking who wanted the fiugres for what, between the two of us. i mean he grabbed ALL of the thanos packs, and a couple gambits too (im not really into x-men either).

  5. yeah i remember that too. (then cap figures were on sale for SEVEN DOLLARS EACH 3 weeks later! only reason i got fury)


    i scoped out temecula walmart last night. no joy. asked a guy on the way out who i have talked to before about comics and movies. seems to be "in the know". i asked him when the 6 inchers are coming. he said to check back the night of the midnight showing. thanked him and went on my way.


    checked back again today just to humor myself (also because of the earlier comment "the day you dont check is when they restock" so true lol) and i noticed...

    no pegs for them. no paper plan up for reset.


    june seems likely at the earliest.

    and that sucks because i am deploying for 6 months on tuesday.


    hm.. maybe i will have some luck "overseas" ; )


    anyway, happy hunting everyone!

  6. i go more for character favorites. not really into it for the value.

    that said, its a peave that in order to get a face off cap, warbird, and deadpool i would have to sell some organs or something.

    at least deadpool will be easier soon...


    as of right now i think the rarest fig i have is ML War Machine. got him at retail. 2nd ML i ever bought. (behind punisher)


  7. i just bought the iron man/maria hill 2 pack.

    from my local comic shop.

    i look at TRU all the time but all they had was the stealth version with sharon carter? meh.

    (before that i bought the skrullectra variant though, and i have both F4 packs!)


    i still buy ML when i can (money not tight and situation presents itself = brick+mortar)

    and i wish to have singles again. two packs are nice but its like you pay way more and get a figure you want, plus one you *kinda* want. i would buy the skrull if not for the kree dude.

    i really like ML's AND MU. wish they could co-exsist happily.


  8. wow man that sucks to hear.

    i could help by taking some of those ML Icons off your hands.

    i know you said "lot" but i am looking for a few in particular.

    you have a masked Cap, wolvie (blue), and thor?

    i would have to sell a few things myself to made a reasonable offer, but let me know. been looking for them for some time. i would at least like to know your price on Cap.


    also if you have regular ML (6 inch) warbird, spiderwoman, face off cap (masked), let me know.


    thanks and good luck!
