  1. I haven't heard one way or the other. For the past two years, the exclusives have gone up on HTS the Tuesday after, but I think we've usually had confirmation by now. Thats why I pulled the trigger on eBay bc I figured that since the panel came and went with no mention of HTS then they won't be up there. Also, what's different about the paint jobs? Are the SDCC versions more shiny?
  2. Well, after reading that they were sold out, I went ahead and just got one off ebay for $90 plus shipping. I guess I'll just keep in MIB until the singles come out, and if I can find those I'll get rid of it. Really wanting to have them loose when that xforce deadpool comes out though.
  3. I'm not saying Puck, Frog Thor, and Rocket Raccoon wouldn't be cool to have, but theyre accessories, not BAFs. There's no reason Hit Monkey couldn't be a pack-in with Deadpool other than a blatent cash grab on Hasbro's part. We're getting ripped off.
  4. AAAARRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!! I seriously want to Hulk out right now. This is so frustrating. To be teased with a BAF only to get this is crap is a really jerk move on Hasbro's part. A 4 inch BAF? Remember the good old days when little figures like Impossible Man, Gremlin, and Howard the Duck came with full-sized figures? And the point of BAFs was to give us bigger characters that wouldn't fit on a card? This is absolutely a copout of the highest degree. Thanks, but no thanks Hasbro. I'm done.
  5. Has anyone seen any updates on the BAF they said was going to be added to the display today?
  6. I would love a modern Iron Fist without the big collar. I would love an Orson Randall Iron Fist even more.
  7. I don't think they would go through the trouble of packaging those with the stands though if there was going to be BAF Sadly, I agree. Here's to hoping someone has te guts to call their BS on this at the panel. You know they're still going to charge the same price.
  8. I saw a loose FaceOff Cap in a booth at a convention once. $12. I went to get cash, came back, and it was gone. Even though I ended up getting one for a good price eventually, I still wish I would have been able to get that one.
  9. Only 40 working days to ship to Argentina!!
  10. It's how Hulk looked in the first few issues of the new Jason Aaron run when he was living underground with the Moloids.
  11. Yeah, I only use the ToyBiz modern Iron Man for my original New Avengers display. Anything post-Civil War I use either a movie or extremis Iron Man figure.
  12. I think it just depends on how big you think Iron Man should be. IMO, I think the movie figures are a little too small to fit in with the Toy Biz Legends, but they fit pretty well with the Hasbro ones. I think the movie ones are all about the same size as the Hasbro Extremis Iron Man.
  13. I'm not a big fan of the character, so I don't have either. I would suppose the Hasbro version is probably a better sculpt, but the Toy Biz one might have better articulation. I just can't say for sure, though.
  14. I've wanted to do the same to my Ronan series one for a while now but never got around to it. It actually would be a really easy custom since there aren't any little details to worry about. I'd refer you to figurerealm.com as they have the biggest collection of customs I've seen online in their Custom Showcase section. The custom boards here are always a little slow. If you wanted to do it yourself, I'd just tell you to first wash the figure with soap and water, then let it dry. Use acryllic model paint (games workshop or the like. Most hobby stores have them, and anywhere they sell those table-top roleplaying games where the gamers cutomize their own little pieces and armies.) Good luck!
  15. I always search "Loose Marvel Legends" plus the character. I also sort the results by "ending soonest" to see if there's any bargains I can jump in on as they end. Be careful to read the descriptions though as a lot of sellers will list MU and MS figures as "Marvel Legends."
  16. A great example of this is the Series 6 Juggernaut. He used to go for $50 plus loose. Ever since the MS one came out though, he's obsolete. I saw one sell for $18 the other day and ended up getting rid of mine for $25. Since I built my collection through eBay, I set a limit on each figure of what I was willing to spend and then just searched and bid on auctions until I got it for that price. If the auction got higher than I wanted or could afford, I just tried to find another one. I bought all my figures loose, which is always going to be less expensive. A lot of them came from the same 4 sellers, too, which also helps because it's easy to monitor their listings and Buy It Now offers. I was even able to get a few discounts since I was a repeat customer. Lastly, buy in lots. It's almost ALWAYS less $ per figure if you buy a lot at once. I got a huge lot of Spider-Man villains, about 20 figures, for a little over $100 once. It was probably the best deal I've ever gotten. My Face Off Captain America also came from a loose lot that when averaged out across all the rest of the figures was about $10.
  17. My favorites have been Captain Rogers, Constrictor, Hope, the Wrecking Crew, and Spider-man. But really, they're all pretty solid and there's no stinkers in my opinion.
  18. Hasbro, hands down. But i display mine with two toy biz dooms with the cloaks removed to look like doombots.
  19. Since I can't be 100% sure about getting it from HTS, I'm going to go ahead and throw this out there like everyone else. If anyone is going to ComicCon and would be willing to get me one, please send me a PM. I'll send you the money via PayPal before the Con so you'll be covered, and if/when you get it, I'll send the shipping cost. Again, serious offer here. Please contact me if you can help.
  20. Since he's only 5, I'd say go with one of the older ones from Toy Biz Marvel Legends. The sculpt isn't as good as the Hasbro Ronan series one, but they do have pegs on the boards and foot holes. Marvel Legends: http://marvelousnews.com/database/search.php?itemid=343 Same sculpt, no magnets, different paint: http://marvelousnews.com/database/search.php?itemid=811 The Hasbro one is better, IMHO, from a collector's standpoint because of the sculpt and "chrome" board which is really shiny. Unfortunately, it will also probably be more expensive than the Toy Biz versions. Hasbro: http://marvelousnews.com/database/search.php?itemid=1057
  21. I was a Star Wars collector from 1995-2006. When I was a kid, I was really into Spider-Man and the X-men b/c of the cartoons, so I had a ton of X-men and spidey figures. While technically not a ML, I did get the original Spider-Man classics regular and black costume spideys b/c they came out around the same time as the Activision game for PlayStation and I was starting to get back into the characters. In my SW collecting days, I always thought ML were really cool figures when I saw them in the toy aisles. Looking back, i remember actually seeing a Deadpool in a Wal-Mart somewhere and wanting to get it since I always wanted the old one from the X-Force line and never got it, but I passed. I quit collecting Star Wars around 2006-7, and my first official ML figure was the Hasbro FFF King Hulk b/c I loved World War Hulk so much and thought it was a great figure. One thing led to another, and I bought the two packs that came out around the same time, and the rest is history. I've bought all the new stuff as it's come out and backfilled my collection through eBay and buying loose figures at conventions.
  22. I'm going to purchase multiples to lessen the cost of my trip. It's not like the 4-day with Preview Night pass, lodging, food, airfare is free. I always look to recoup whatever costs I can when I go to SDCC. People might not like this but there's hundreds of people that go to SDCC annually that do this. It's just the reality of things and if people don't like this idea then don't live in a Capitalistic society then. HTS puts aside a limited amount for sale the day after SDCC ends. They don't have to do this since it's an exclusive but they do. I never knew people did this, but i guess it makes sense. More power to you I suppose. Hope you make tons of $$ and get your whole trip paid for. I've been doing this since SDCC exploded in 2007. Why pay more than you have to for your trip right. Or why go on a trip you cant afford?

  24. Re: The last two posts. What reason could you possibly have for buying more than 2 at most? I understand wanting one to open and one to keep in the box, but three or more? Unless youre getting them for friends or fellow collectors, whats the point? Some of us aren't going to be able to get these through HTS, and I'll bet we'll see these going for $150+ on eBay.
