  1. Does anyone know how single figure re-orders for retailers are determined? The one that comes to mind is the comic-style Mysterio... people couldn’t find it when the wave was released but then every online retailer got it available as a single figure to order months later. I know there have been some others like this but I can’t remember off hand. Is this a decision made by Hasbro based on sales? Do retailers have the opportunity to request additional production of an individual figure? If this isn’t actually a thing that happens and I’m totally remembering incorrectly then let me know!
  2. The "deluxe" Archangel is $29.99 on Amazon right now. If you're a Prime member and can get it shipped for free that's the best price I've seen on it in a while. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07G2S3M1Y/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. It can’t be a coincidence that the package art for Storm now has a corner box with character portraits of Storm, Iceman, Cyclops, Wolverine, and Beast. Is the reintroduction of the corner box on the packaging indicative of a new lineup of figures? On the original Toy Biz packages the portraits on the corner box changed to reflect the figures in that wave. It may not be a fully new wave... maybe a wave 1.5. Cyclops features his blue and white X-Factor costume just like the figure from the Uncanny X-Men retro wave. I wouldn’t be mad at all if they changed him to his original blue and yellow X-Factor costume. Iceman could be a straight carry forward, or maybe he’d be done with a blue tint just like later versions of the original Toy Biz figure did. A carry forward of the tiger stripe Wolverine from the Apocalypse BAF wave seems unnecessary since the Love Triangle figure is pretty much already a repack with some added accessories... but Wolverine is one of those anchor characters for Hasbro. If they used the belt from the Hulk 2-pack then it would represent Wolverine from Giant Size X-Men #1 until he changed to the brown costume, and save me the hassle of putting that together myself. I’d love to see Beast re-released in any format. I was lucky to find a second one in the wild to go along with my classic Avengers, and now I’m looking for a third to make a classic X-Factor team. Since the Caliban wave figure only came with an open mouth head, a re-release in a retro wave would be a great time to add a new closed mouth head. If this isn’t an actual wave that’s released all at once I would also be cool with some repaints and re-releases continuing to launch via Hasbro Pulse as standalone figures like gray hulk and first appearance Deadpool.
  4. Hey all... does anyone have any ideas on where to get a good armored left arm for Magik in her X-Men / New Mutants costume? I’ve seen a lot of customs that use a Spiral arm, but I’m not paying $60 - $75 on eBay for a figure to use as fodder. I’m going for the look in the attached image. I have the Magik head and Dani Moonstar body, I just need the left arm.
  5. Dani Moonstar is back up for sale on Walgreens' website!!! https://www.walgreens.com/store/c/marvel-legends-series-dani-moonstar-exclusive-figure-6-inches/ID=prod6408860-product
  6. I got my Alpha Flight set today... and Amazon sent me 2 of them! Best Buy also had a special one day deal for 25% off one toy so I took the already on sale Power Gauntlet, redeemed $30 worth of rewards, and got it for $23. Finally a good toy karma day! Maybe I should go hit up all my local Walgreens to see if I can finally find a few Dani Moonstars...
  7. Or Hasbro could blow everyone’s mind and do Sugar Man as the Build-a-Figure!
  8. So all the characters they’ve chosen so far have been from Rogue’s team in the Astonishing X-Men title or acted independently in the original Age of Apocalypse event (X-Man, Weapon X, and Jean Grey). The remaining members of the Astonishing X-Men team are Rogue, Magneto, and Sabertooth. Given the number of 2 and 3 packs that we’ve seen in the last few years, I wouldn’t be surprised to see either Sabertooth or Apocalypse as the BAF and then a 3 pack with the other, Rogue, and Magneto. If not then a second wave would have to include those characters. Is Age of Apocalypse getting this huge because 2020 is the 25th anniversary of the event?
  9. Up in Michigan visiting family... after striking out 3 times the last Walgreens I hit finally delivered! No sign of Dani Moonstar but I finally snagged Emma Frost after missing it on the website.
  10. Not a new figure... but I was super excited to pick up an Epic Heroes Doctor Doom today for $15 through Facebook Marketplace. I’ll still get the new one coming out in the next year, but I like this one as a “classic” version to go along with the more “classic” FF.
  11. No actual figure goodness, but I did see the plan-o-gram for a Marvel endcap at Walgreens. There is a peg designated for Dani Moonstar and a peg for Emma Frost... hopefully I can find them soon.
  12. I picked up the Cowboy Logan figure at Game Stop in Southern Indiana (Kentuckiana). I had a $10 coupon that I got from Think Geek with the explanation that Think Geek’s own reward points were going away and they were now redeemable as Game Stop rewards. I’ve had everything pre-ordered from other online retailers this summer, so I haven’t been out hunting for stuff other than Walmart exclusives. But, the coupon was expiring tomorrow so I figured I’d go see if there was anything worthwhile. The Marvel Legends figures were all $22.99, so I ended up with it for $12.99. That’s cheaper than the $19.99 I would have paid through Hasbro Pulse, so all in all it worked out.
  13. Hulk sold out as I was checking out... worthless.
  14. I got my Collector and Grandmaster but lost the Hulk in the time it took me to checkout.
  15. I ponied up and got the Hasbro Pulse Premium membership... and yesterday Hasbro sent out an e-mail that the SDCC Marvel Legends figures were going to be available starting at 12:00 noon on August 29. Have other exclusives already gone live for Hasbro Pulse? Were they on time? I don't want to plan for an F5 party at 12:00 and then find out they actually went live at 10:00 AM or something...
