  1. Good luck to everyone. Hopefully Hiya will have shipped the Predator figures by the time this contest ends.
  2. I have terrible news for you: they got full cases, but someone has already grabbed the "good" stuff. have you been wiping out an entire retail chain? I have 2 on my way home from work and both only ever had the Antman/Ares. 1 of which is wiped out already and reset with those playmotion things. I haven't personally wiped out any stores (as PsychoPirate can attest), but stores received full cases. At $5 a pop, I can imagine scalpers/customizers/collectors could tear through a store's inventory awfully quick. For example, I purchased 9 Valkyries, 4 Cyclops, 4 Omega Reds, and 2 Ares,
  3. I have terrible news for you: they got full cases, but someone has already grabbed the "good" stuff.
  4. Haven't seen it mentioned here, but the Valkyrie, Ares, Deathlok, Antman, Astonishing Cyclops wave is hitting 5 Below stores en masse.
  5. I'll take a look tomorrow while I'm out. EDIT: No luck at either Target, TRU, or Walmart.
  6. Picked up AA Thor and Hawkeye at Ross, but will probably bring them back.
  7. Picked up Nick Fury if anyone needs him or has a Falcon for trade.
  8. It's a pretty big head. Would work on a larger buck (Hercules or Hulk), but would be way too big on anything else. Also, the neck peg would need to be filled quite a bit.
  9. Those seem to be the only places he's in stock. I got him off Amaazon for $15 shipped. Dorkside had him for retail, but he was out of stock the last time I checked.
  10. Thanks.........I hit 5 Target this weekend looking for Link and couldn't find any........ I might be able to help you out.
  11. Here's a first: found MU single-packs at Burlington. Picked up Dagger and Abomination for $5 each.
  12. Yeah, but you're in NY, and if I recall correctly, you've got a Mom and Pop store that gets them way earlier than most other places.
  13. Many people have ordered from smalljoes and gotten it within a few days. EE qas tge aame. BBTS seems to havw run out, though.
  14. They are actually. That's the Wave 24 Revision case. TRU seems to have doubled down on it, as I've been to multiple TRU's in the south and midwest that have had multiple cases on the pegs (some even in the front and back of the store).
  15. Yup. Iron Man has plenty of suits that haven't been made. I wouldn't mind Iron Man in every case if it was always a new suit. I know why that can't happen, sure, but it's nice to dream. Wave 1 should never have had the Bleeding Edge suit. It should have been the black and gold Now armor. After getting that exact Cap in most of last year's cases, they really should have done something different with him too, even if it was just an unmasked head. Beta Ray Bill should not be in wave 2. Demand for him has been more or less filled. Commander Rogers has been absent from cases for a while, bu
  16. Tell that to retailers who only want characters that the target demographics know. You do that and convince kids/parents to buy characters that they've never heard of instead, and this line could go on forever. Hasbro has gone out of their way with Waves 2 and 3 to bring in characters that only fans would recognize. Hell, Death's Head and Whirlwind might be the most obscure character choices to date, so if putting CA and IM into Wave 1 meant we got those characters then collectors really need to take a look at the big picture of things. We think the big names ruin the line because we see t

  18. I totally agree with Hasbro being abysmal when it comes to figure selections in cases (although that seems to have improved with AI (if you've seen what the revision cases and Wave 3 breakdown looks like)). However, I'd say the Wave 24 revision case was an improvement on what they did with Wave 23 and Wave 24 (essentially combing both waves in one case, similar to what they are doing with later AI revision cases). And I've seen no increase in their prices beyond what I've paid the few previous years ($9.99 a figure), and that has been true everywhere in the south and in the midwest. I can'
  19. Hasbro didn't overship the final repack case. TRU overordered it. There is a very profund difference in that statement. TRU did the same with Retaliation Wave 4, to the point that stores are now drowning in pegs of Alley-Vipers, Fireflys, Battle-Kata Roadblocks, etc.
  20. Hasbro is not a distributor (with the lone exception being what they list on their own website, which does include AI Wave 1). They are a manufacturer and sell their product to stores which in turn distribute said product to their stores. It's not up to Hasbro to order product and stock shelves; that responsibility falls solely to retailers. It is Hasbro's responsibility to supply enough product for those demands. If retailers don't order it, the product will sit in a warehouse until they do or be sold online on Hasbro's website. The simple fact is that most retailers are moving away from
