    Seeing as how we are in close proximity... Have u seen any Starforce Captain Marvel figures at Tatget? And secondly, have u ever been to Steel Collectables on Cherokee St.? Great Place!!

    I'm in Steel at least once a week.  Lol. Love that place and the owners a super chill.  Stuff is priced to make profit but not kill your pockets.  Haven't seen that star force figure though.  

  2. Mystique are in the Kemnesaw/Acworth GA area.  Picked mine up on the 3rd store I tried on Dallas Acworth Highway.  The store on Cherokee st in n Kennesaw is your best bet right now as they confirmed there is 100 crates of stuff in the back thats going out today.  Also found the new NECA TMNT 2 packs announce at Toyfair at Target on Cobb Parkway in Acworth.  $220.44 for the set.  Wallet is definitely hurting.  No more there but they should be hitting other stores in The area.

     

     

     

  3. on the Thanos Walmart exclusive hunt....... had to rant a little after today....

    today about noon, 6 stores in my area (north austin) update on brickseek showing 6 Thanos in stock in all but one store that showed 4. I go to store 1 right after work - brickseek says 6 - none on shelf. I show an employee my phone and the brickseek info, she goes to another employee who says 'you'll have to check later...' i kindly explain that the brick seek info changed earlier today from '0' to '6' so maaaaaybe theseare sitting on a pallet??? No - he did not lift a finger to go check ..... 'you should check around 12....' *sigh* on to the next store......

     

    Brick seek says '4'... none on shelf. i ask employee again showing brickseek info and kindly asking if he could please just look - i just want one puny Thanos before the scalpers come in and buy up the entire case!!!! he says he will look. Disappears to the back. over 30 min later he is nowhere to be found. another employee asks if she can help me. I hand her the freakin shelf tag , she scans it and says 'nope we didnt get any' i look at her phone (scanner) and it reads '4 ON HAND'. i say - so what does '4 on hand ' mean??' 'um well... we're supposed to have them in the store but.......' followed by silence. she is not about to walk to the back and look i realize and turn and walk away.

     

    It is 11:30 and im about to go to bed. I check brickseek and ANOTHER store has updated from '0' to '6 on hand'... ok - these stores MUST have these - this makes no sense. the last 2 weeks have shown '0' at every store in my area and today almost all show 4-6 on hand???? hmmmm either brickseek is waaaay off or INCREDIBLY LACKLUSTER EMPLOYEES....... hmmmm

     

    I decided to go back to the store showing 4 on hand since it is open 24hrs. Theres a pallet of stock sitting in the aisle where i had sat waiting, waiting waiting just 5 hours earlier. on the top is an open Hasbro case of Thanos with ............. can you guess how many?? yep - 4 spanking new Thanos exclusives inside. I took one and the box and put the remaining 3 on the shelf so some poor bastard like me might have a chance of finding him tonight or in the morning.

     

    What have i learned? Well - brickseek does appear to be correct and employees just dont care and in the future i will not trust ANY employee. If brickseek shows in stock - chances are very good that the item is there. I'm exhausted - been driving around looking for this guy for a few weeks. Now i am vindicated!!

    This was my exact experience with Wal-Mart as well. Apparently their system will tell them something is in stock but sometimes not give a location. I was able to use Wal-Mart's own site the same night and the aisle was shown which let me know the item was put out. Crazy thing is which butthole worker is picking the box up and taking 1 or 2 out but leaving them back on the palletts?

  4. I think he's specifically referring the matte finish of the packaging, not the paint apps of the figures.

    Exactly this. When compared to the previous Marvel Universe packaging this looks very bland and cheap. Not a tremendous deal since I open my figures anyway but I can imagine that MOC collectors who like to decorate their walls with these would be a little annoyed.

  5.  

    My HTS ordered finally shipped. Grim Reaper and Hyperion on the way.

     

    On a side note I have a DC Multiuniverse Bane that is packaged on a Mr Freeze card. I searched google and could find nothing about it. Anybody ever ran into them before. Trying to figure out how rare this is.

    I've seen several people in other forums mention finding DCM figures on the wrong cards. Azrael on Mr. Freeze's card and vice versa seem to be most common.

     

    So I've been a collector for quite some time and back in the day a misprinted package was like a big find, sort of like an unintentional variant. It was especially big with Baseball and Basketball cards. Is that not the case now? I'm not finding anything on value.

  6. So my HTS order came in today minus my Avengers Infinite figures. I called and they stated that the figures were instock as a preorder to be shipped on 4/28. Did this happen to anyone else because I completely did not see the pre order info that they claim was there. I saw it go from coming soon a couple of weeks ago to "in stock". All this and I was only getting 2 of the 3 I wanted in the first place.

    The B-Day hauls continue:-)

     

    Finished up the Turtle line. These are awesome. Got Mike from the collectors line but I honestly like these better. Too bad all the others in the line lack simple articulation (no knees or foot soldiers or shredder? Really?)

     

    Where did you get the nunchucks for mikey. I hate the plastic ones thats come with him.

     

    There the one's that come with the TMNT classic Mikey. The bigger turtles that come with the sewer stands.

  8. Picked this bad boy up yesterday.

    Of course I got one where the cockpit is loose. :hulk:

     

    Not to bad though. Love the look of the jet. The Cap figure is pretty decent too, in particular his accessories.

     

    Thanks for the pic. Any chance you can snap a pic of the figures?

    Never took the figs out if the box just in case I want to exchange it. They look to be the same ultimate cap and IM frome the main line with a different color scheme as far as I can tell but I never really cared for the movie line like others didn't.

  9. Thank god I never bought a Quinjet. My wife who works at Costco found these for me. Shield Quinjets, I think the color scheme looks way better

     

    they retail for 29$

     

    Guess I know one of my B-Day presents for myself this weekend. Eventhough I already have a Quinjet this one looks way better. Plus I don't mind having one of each. One for east coast and one for the west coast avengers.
