  1. This sounds like par for the course for most X-Men waves- a few new versions of major characters, a couple of never-made characters... we'll probably get one more major character, like a Storm, Beast, Cyclops, etc., and one more new or obscure character, in the last slot, or as the BAF. I'm hoping for original costume Sabertooth, like many others. They make a lot of Wolverines, but he has had a ton of different "looks," and he never pegwarms. Hopefully this will be a never-made-before outfit of Wolverine.

    Feral is certainly possible from the clue stand point, but at this time I have not seen anything to suggest she is def coming next year. I wish I had. And that of course doesn't mean she's not coming next year, I just can't say with any certainty she is.

    Fingers crossed- having both her and Siryn next year to complete that X-Force roster would be great.

    My first thought was Paste Pot Pete, as in the drum was full of his hot glue stuff (especially since it has a port) but I can't find any example of PPP/Trapster wearing a costume like that. 

    Yeah, I thought that, too, The only other thing the drum/barrel made me think of was the barrels of chemicals on the truck from the accident that gave young Matt Murdock his power, but we've had plenty of Daredevil figures, and I don't think they're making a young Matt Murdock with chemical barrel...

  4. This is actually a really, really good opening for this movie. Labor Day weekend is usually terrible for movies, because people are out enjoying "the last weekend of Summer." Shang-Chi is going to more than double the previous record for movie gross on Labor Day weekend, this during a pandemic, for a character that most of the general public has never even heard of. This is awesome! The buzz for it is extremely positive, too, from both audiences and critics, which means it should have longer legs in theaters than the average blockbuster. It is exceeding expectations in every way- nothing negative about any of this.

    Actually, it was only the BAF and comic figures that stuck around for a while. Spidey, Night Monkey and Mysterio all sold pretty well around my area at least, and from what I saw online.

    Same. It was a popular film- I haven't heard many people complain about it. The Target-exclusive Spidey and MJ 2-pack seemed to sell pretty well, too.

    I’m hoping that they make Quasar and Nova available through pulse, since it seems that Walgreens is out of the Legends business.


    Walgreen's has been very inconsistent. ONE of the many Walgreen's stores near me got in a few figures from the House of X wave. That wave had the Back Widow movie Legends at $14.99 each (this was a couple of months ago). No other stores me have figures from either of those waves. A couple of Walgreen's got in the Venom movie wave late last year, including one that got in a bunch of them. That store randomly restocked with Age of Apocalypse figures a few months ago. I think individual store managers have some amount of input over what their stores get in and restock, which could have something to do with it, but overall, for the past many months, Walgreen's has really been slow in restocking toys, Legends and otherwise. I enjoy them as a store, but they shouldn't have exclusives if there's no consistency or uniformity. Hoping the few announced Legends and Star Wars figures are "brick and mortar" exclusives for Walgreen's. and get heavy availability on Pulse, and/or with some other e-tailers.
