  1. I've had my hands on 5 different Electros today, all with spectacular paint apps. I've also had my hands on like 6 different Ultimates Captain Americas today, all with hideous face paint jobs. I also saw a Spider-Man today where they forgot to paint the black lines on his mask! No Giant Battles and no Guardian just yet.
  2. Found LOADED pegs at Wal-Mart in Princeton, NJ today. They had three (!) Electros. First time I've ever seen him. But 0 Guardians, the other remaining Wave 5 figure I need. 2 Ultimate Universe Captain Americas, lots of Red Hulks, Hobgoblins, and such. Why can't they re-release Bullseye? :(
  3. I've been seeing Secret Wars 2-Packs in Targets, Toys R Us, and Wal-Marts all over CT now. Have only seen the crappy repaint peg-warmers of Wave 5 (IM, Spidey) at Wal-Mart so far.
  4. I have only seen the Wolverine in Weapon X tank and Deadpool with Giant Launcher at retail. And I go to multiple stores all the time in NJ, CT, NY, and PA. I ordered Colossus and Wolverine/Colossus online and have yet to see them at retail. The single-carded Colossus is so awesome, it'd such a 70's look. The deluxe Colossos (Astonishing costume) looks cool but has an awful pose and is a statue.
  5. Haha, yeah. I moved up here in 2007 to work for WWE. It was fun playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 IN Stamford and watching Stamford be blown up. Can't believe they showed the NITRO BLAST hitting children during the cut scenes. I re-read Civil War and when the heroes go to Stamford to help with the relief there is a sign for a comic store in the rubble. It's a real comic store we have in town.
  6. You gotta change it up. Here's what I've found on my journeys. TOYS R US in Norwalk, CT. It was here I discovered MU 3.75". I bought 15 of them at once (the huge initial series). When the Wolvie/Sabretooth pack dropped, it was here. Secret Wars Series 1 2-Packs? Saw 'em here first. I found the XMO:W Iceman, Gambit, Maverick, and Cyclops here after a few re-visits. Over the past 2 months, however, they have gotten no Series 4 or 5. A "gold mine" became a strip mine. TARGET in Stamford, CT. They never had anything. Then they became loaded with Series 3 and 4. Now? Nothing really new (besides SW 1) in months. WAL-MART in Norwalk, CT. NOTHING. EVER. FOR 4 MONTHS+ Then? Series 5 out of nowhere. WAL-MART in Princeton, NJ. Went there a couple times. Nothing but Stealth IM and Ronin. Then? All three Secret Wars Series 2 two-packs. TARGET in Philadelphia. Random shot. Hey! Old Man Punisher and Red Hulk, back when they were fairly hard to find (and still sort of are). Ms. Marvel - Never seen either one. Finally ordered the modern one online today. Deadpool (comics). Remember that first couple of weeks when he was IMPOSSIBLE to find? I was on vacation in Florida and found him in a Walgreens. Was so excited. Never give up. That "shitty" store will eventually get these in! Trust me, I wouldn't have found Series 5 and some of the harder older figures if I didn't check on a hunch. I LOVE THIS TOY LINE!
  7. Bought all of Secret Wars Wave 2 in Princeton, NJ Wal-Mart. Black Costume Spider-Man's leg pops off but is easily re-attached. It just comes when you bend it around a lot. Not really a problem but I might return it if I feel like it. First problem with MU I've had (besides the prices)... The only Wave 5 figures I've seen so far are Spidey and Iron Man and those were both passes. Magneto's height really sucks. Here's what was left at the stores... Wal-Mart #1: 2 Hulk/Cyclops, 1 Magneto/Spidey, 2 Iron Man/Spider-Woman Wal-Mart #2: 3 Iron Man/Spider-Womans, 0 Magneto/Spidey, 1 Hulk/Cyclops Seems like Magneto/Spider-Man is the favorite. REALLY LIKE: Hulk, Cyclops (perfect figures) LIKE: Magneto (great sculpt, wrong height, though) Spider-Man (no highlights!) Iron Man (love the colors) DON'T LIKE: Spider-Woman (very short)
  8. Wave 5 found in Norwalk, CT on 9/9/09. Along with Iron Fist repaint, Red Hulk, and Gray Hulk. Poster above, could you say where you found these SW 2-Packs? The "comic pack" Sabretooth is based on his appearances in Wolverine right before he was killed. Kind of a hybrid of the "2000"-era Sabretooth in the comics that was re-designed to look like the movie version and the Ultimate X-Men one. The Sabretooth from the Toys R Us 2-Pack is by far the superior one.
  9. NEWBIE ALERT! Still no Wave 5 in Connecticut or New Jersey Toys 'R Us locations. TONS of Spidey & Amazing Friends, all Secret Wars Wave 1, and pegs loaded with Ronin, Stealth Iron Man, and The Thing. Granted I found all of Wave 1, Wave 2, and Wave 4 at one time, so I consider myself lucky so far. Just impatient especially since the 4-story Target in Stamford, CT costs a dollar to park at each time! Do you guys know if they plan to re-pack Classic Ms. Marvel? Only MU figure I need and have never seen it.
