  1. I ordered it… I need the Drax and Star Lord for my Infinity War display. I have the figures from GOTG2 but never picked up an additional one of each, and both have more than doubled on the secondary market. Plus, I’m happy to have Drax with the neutral face in his blue costume. I can’t tell from trailers and clips if Rocket is in the same costume in “Love and Thunder” or not. If he is then I’ll throw the Rocket with Star Lord and Groot. If not, I’ll see if I can sell off Rocket, Groot, and Gamora.
  2. Just a pair of LBCs, but a little tweak can make a huge difference. First up is the Caliban wave Gambit with the hair from the Retro Target exclusive. The hair pieces were a simple boil and pop swap since they’re designed to fit the same head. The other is the Retro Target exclusive with the hair from the MCU Winter Solider from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The navy blue headgear, gloves, and pants with the more silver boots immediately reminded me of the Steve Skroce art from the first Gambit ongoing solo series. A lot of other artists drew Gambit with his original costume and longer hair in the early 2000s, and Winter Soldier’s hair fits that look. It just needed a bit of dremeling to fit, and then a dunk in hot water to shape it a little.
  3. I don’t remember seeing anyone post that Silver Centurion had been released yet... but I stumbled in to one today! I went to Walgreens to return the extra Moon Knight I had (bought 2 online so I’d get free shipping). They were having a hard time doing the refund, so asked if i was planning to buy anything else so they could do an exchange. I went to the toy aisle looking for GI Joe Classified, and the manager came up with a couple Ant Man, a Malekith, and what I thought was Iron Man 2020. He asked if I was looking for any of these, and I realized that it was Silver Centurion! I said I’d gladly take that and went back to the register to finish the exchange! This is in Jeffersonville, IN.
  4. I’ve got some of the Action Force accessory sets on preorder from Big Bad Toy Store. I like the look of the figures, but I don’t know if I’m going to mix in any of them in until I can see how the aesthetics look with the two lines together.
  5. Kind of a long shot, but I figure it’s worth a try... I have an extra Walgreens Moon Knight (ordered 2 so I could get free shipping). If anyone has an extra Target exclusive GI Joe Classified Cobra Trooper I would gladly trade. Moon Knight package is excellent without damage and I don’t care about the condition of the Cobra Trooper package since I’ll open it anyway.
  6. Hey thanks for the support! I’m assuming Tarot is being sarcastic... Im not trying to claim I’m a better or longer fan than anyone... just trying to provide some context. I always found it odd that Mesmero was featured so prominently in that Jim Lee poster, literally alongside Magneto and Sabretooth, and that in consuming 25 years worth of X-Universe comics I don’t remember seeing him.
  7. With the Haslab Sentinel window closing and the Hellfire SDCC box set dropping soon, it’s got me thinking about my X-Men villain lineup. Hasbro has killed it the last few years between X-Men, Deadpool, and X-Force lines. Which brings me to a mystery I haven’t solved in 30 years... who is the green and purple character in the Jim Lee villains pinup? I remember my brother and I obsessing over the X-Men #1 deluxe issue, and ever since then I haven’t been able to figure out who this is. I own and have read just about every “X” related comic from about ‘89 to 2013... my friends and I were obsessed with the Marvel and X-Men cards in the early 90s... and I still don’t think I ever saw this character anywhere other than this poster. Anyone know?
  8. I’ve been wanting this Rogue figure since it was originally announced (and then cancelled) as part of the Wolverine wave with the Puck BAF. She will be part of my Utopia / Second Coming era X-Men display. Pyro is also very welcome... while there are still too many gaps to do a proper Brotherhood, he will nonetheless add to the pretty impressive group of evil mutants Hasbro’s put out over the last few years.
  9. I found the retro Spider-Man at Target in New Albany, IN. It was the only figure left from the case(s) that the store had.
  10. There was a Target logo on the screen with them... I’m guessing that after the fiasco of the G.I. Joe Classified Target exclusives this morning that someone told them to gloss over the release details...
  11. I’ve got a few ideas... - Excalibur (Captain Britain, Meggan, Phoenix, Shadowcat, Nightcrawler) - Warriors Three (comic) - Brotherhood of Evil Mutants (Toad, Mastermind, Pyro, Avalanche, Blob. I know this was never a roster together, but those are the key characters.) - Iron Man Hall of Armor (first appearance, underwater, Silver Centurion, and Modular)
  12. If I were to put together a “best of” X-Men wave I would think: - Brown costume Wolverine (as much as people don’t want to see Wolverine take up a slot, we know he’d have to be included. The Juggernaut wave figure and even the Retro figure are both expensive on the secondary market) - Cyclops (Jim Lee) - Rogue (Jim Lee) - Magneto (from the Amazon 3-pack) - Iceman (Juggernaut wave) - Psylocke - Gambit, Bishop, Beast, or Cable (Sasquatch wave) The only BAF that really makes sense for just a rerelease is Apocalypse.
  13. Moon Knight is back in stock on Walgreens’ website... I was able to submit an order and got a confirmation e-mail! https://www.walgreens.com/store/c/marvel-legends-series-moon-knight-preorder/ID=300399793-product
  14. So during the Hasbro Pulse Facebook livestream on Friday there was a comment made that they were looking at figures from the House of X / Powers of X / Dawn of X relaunch of the X-Universe. If and when Hasbro gets to the House of X designs, what would be your wishlist? I'd love to see a box set rather than a wave so that the waves can continue to be a mix of 90's and older figures that we still need. A box set featuring the cover of House of X #1 would cover all of the major hitters: - Professor Xavier (easy with the Sunfire buck and a new head) - Magneto (Apocalypse wave head, Moon Knight cape, X-Force Deadpool belt, Bucky Cap buck, new secondaries for gauntlets. In a perfect world it would have swappable bare arms like the Walgreens Reed Richards so that we can get the costume to go along with Cyclops, Magik, and Emma Frost) - Cyclops (Puck Cyclops repaint with the X-Force Deadpool belt) - Wolverine (X-Force repaint) - Marvel Girl (new head and skirt are about the only parts needed. This would also give us the classic Marvel Girl costume.) A lot of characters are just using classic costumes, so the only other characters I can think of that have newer costumes would be Storm and Psylocke (now Captain Britain). -
  15. For anyone who has the Sandman Wave Green Goblin loose... are the gauntlets a secondary piece that’s fitted over the forearms, or are the gauntlets part of the forearm sculpt? Thank you!
  16. So I think we all know that Wolfsbane is the only 90s X-Factor figure that isn’t made or soon to be released (Strong Guy). Thinking about the necessary parts for a figure, the only things that aren’t already sculpted and being used are arms and legs with fur sculpted on them. Hasbro obviously has to get repaints out of new tooling to justify the investment, so what characters could be made utilizing these new parts if they were created? Of the top of my head I’m thinking: - Wolfsbane (90s X-Factor) - Feral - Thorne (Feral’s sister... d-list character, but it gets mileage from the tooling) - Tigra (not that familiar with all her costumes, but I imagine there is more than one Tigra figure that could be made with these new parts) Any other feline or lupine type female characters out there?
  17. I got Leader (the only figure I wanted from the Gamerverse wave) from Hasbro Pulse on Monday and my gray Black Widow delivered from Walmart today... and I don’t think I have anything else on pre-order other than fan-channel exclusives. Is there any news on when the next wave is planned? I think I’ve got the gray Beast due in June, and Retro Mysterio and Kingpin are the only other available pre-orders I can think of that are out there. I know the Deadpool wave with the Strong Guy BAF was originally announced for a May release, but since Hasbro hasn’t even confirmed the final figures that original release date is clearly not going to happen. I mean, given the relentless pile up of waves right on top of each other over the last few years I’m ok with a bit of a break to catch my breath. This week’s “Fan First Friday” on Hasbro Pulse is Marvel, so hopefully we’ll get some info then.
  18. Got my gray Black Widow from Walmart today. I’m really kind of surprised I didn’t get cancelled or delayed like others have.
  19. Marvel NOW Thor... his costume up until he became a herald of Galactus was the same except for the Uru metal arm and head. If Hasbro included swappable left arms and two different heads (long hair, no beard and short hair, beard) then it could be both versions. Anything is better than the half-@$$ed version they did retooling the Return of Marvel Legends Thor.
  20. A lot of the same ideas but maybe one or two twists... 1. Modular Armor Iron Man 2. James Rhodes Iron Man (80th Anniversary body with a flatter red and yellow paint deco; regular helmet, horned helmet, and James Rhodes head) 3. Mandarin (with alternate green skin head and hands) 4. Crimson Dynamo (the one we all want) 5. Blacklash (it is inspired by the Toy Biz figure line) 6. Director Maria Hill (add in the jet pack from the gray Black Widow and give us a new female S.H.I.E.L.D. figure that doesn’t reuse a Black Widow body) Fan Channel Exclusive - Stealth Iron Man (80th Anniversary repaint)
  21. I got the rest of my Age of Apocalypse wave piecemeal over the weekend from Amazon. Sunfife arrived Friday afternoon, and then a box with Jean Grey, X-Man, and Morph arrived yesterday ahead of the scheduled delivery date showing on Amazon’s tracking. Finally, Wild Child arrived today to complete the wave. Sugar Man is freaking huge! I haven’t read any comics with him in them for years, so I didn’t have a good mental picture of how big he was compared to “regular” size characters. Also, Wild Child’s chain is totally shaped to wrap around a large size forearm... come on AoA Sabretooth!
  22. I got my Dark Beast from Amazon yesterday... Wolverine is supposed to be delivered today. My Amazon account shows Wildchild scheduled for delivery on May 6, with the remaining 4 (X-Man, Jean Grey, Sunfire, and Morph) scheduled to deliver on May 11. I’m more hopeful that they will actually deliver since when my Taskmaster missed its planned delivery I immediately got a cancellation notice and these notices were for delays with specific dates. I had gone with Amazon over Hasbro Pulse because I had one wave of figures (I think it was the first wave of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 with the Titus) that I ended up getting $2-$3 back for each figure because the price dropped between pre-order and release. But now after two waves with cancelations and delays, I’m sticking with Hasbro Pulse. I paid my $50 and have gotten good use of the membership for buying single figures at a time with free shipping. I know that Amazon is prioritizing receipt of food, cleaning, and health care products to its fulfillment centers, so their deliveries from Hasbro to fulfill pre-orders are probably waiting in ports and truck yards to get a delivery appointment. And then once Amazon does have the products the shipping times are delayed as they again prioritize customer shipments of food, cleaning, and health care products. The 3rd party sellers that are selling the figures for higher prices were able to get their stock from whatever distributors they order from and then do fulfillment by Amazon to use Amazon’s network for warehousing and delivery. Short story long... not going to pre-order from Amazon anymore unless it’s an Amazon exclusive.
