  1. I got my orders in from Hasbro toy shop and I guess somebody at hasbro Likes me.... this just screwed my head up, this had to be a error or accidental old stock. today I also got Sunfire, Shadow Tracker and some jungle vipers for custom wings.... but the post man is Holding My orders from O.P.P. hostage till tomorrow. *edit* btw: if anybody actually got one of those regular visions, post here. the ones I got were both clear.
  2. How was it obvious that he was a scalper? First, I'm sure you've seen the type. If he is gainfully employed and not living with his parents (he is a grown man and I'm joking, to an extent, don't mean to stigmatize) I'd eat his Warpath variant fig. Second, the way he was eyeing the figs my son was carrying, I swear I half-expected him to try to snatch them away (never gonna happen with me around). Third, the grab for every moderately hard-to-find fig, not just the Warpath. Guy knew what to look for in terms of resale. Outside chance he is a collector/enthusiast, but I see a lot of these types in NYC. I'm fairly confident in my assessment, even in my short time finding figs for my kids. While not directed at me, YEAH, I can tell you in NYC if you go on the hunt long enough you can spot these guys a mile away or hear it in the way they talk to each other, look at the April Hauls post if you can't recognize what they sound like. lol, just j/k *edit* yes there is always the chance you were wrong CharrdWood, I'm sure at times people may mistake us enthusiast as scalpers too BUT most likely than not you might of been right too.
  3. lol, I had to go through google to get it to pop up on the website, how awful is that for a search engine? I type it in on the website and it keeps saying "Did you mean spitfire" and the Marvel universe search only produces the usual suspects of pegwarmers and random crap. they need to fire there website designer and fix this.
  4. the site is so crappy it seems you wouldn't know that unless you looked for a specific figure, the figures don't show up when doing the Usual "Marvel Universe Figure" search, I I hate poor website design from big companies, it's lazy and inexcusable. anyway, sorry had to rant. also it seems, they have "Moonknight and Black Panther" but I only found these because of the little recently looked at photos on the bottom of the page.
  5. so the local discount place I usually find the Hard to finds at a slight mark up ordered like 10-20 cases of that new Iron-man wave, in addition to the 8 or so pegs dedicated to unsold stock, this probably means I'm screwed out of new Marvel universe or any of the Venoms I wanted for the moment. Seriously, If you Have Iron-man drowning the Pegs why Buy so many cases? Looks bad for getting the rares for me now. lol, I wish him luck dumping those figures at 10 bucks a pop when bigger chains struggle to get rid of Iron-man AT clearance, If he does then maybe the new Marvel Universe or even the older Revision cases now for the kids that never seem to go outside my neighborhood can get them.
  6. he jacked the price up to 30 bucks plus shipping. hopefully they will hit the shelves again soon, if toycade got it that probably means inventory moved enough for them to resurface after being drowned in the waves of the Ironman pegwarmer hell. I picked up a couple at peg price back around X-mas but traded them away to deserving boarders. Still wish I kept a extra one for myself in Box. Now they are sold out
  7. lol, the only sets I want are the frank and black hand sets... I'm a customizer if the head sucks I'd just swap it out for another.
  8. ..... Yes it is. For some reason I see that pic and imagine it's him speaking In a serious voice. Lol, Cool.
  9. You want to hear b.s. The toys r us near me has had the gi Joe pegs empty for over a month now. They claim it's renovations but a month with 6 pegs and only one figure, a doctor Rex black coat for 2 or so weeks and last week had that white camouflage stormshadow since Rex sold. Wtf? So they have them and only put one figure out at a time? The marvel universes I never have a chance at b/ c the scalpers are there before the store opens and are let in before everybody else because they know the morning guy?!!! It's in your face here in the Bronx. Nobody cares but I still have luck sometimes because I frequently hunt, smaller shops, manhattan, white plains and other places I prefer to hold close to my chest. But what can you do, if it isn't armies of ironman, spideys and wolverines warming pegs, it's scalpers and reretailers. Good luck and happy hunting.
  10. Just the same stuff lately. But the local shop guy said new stuff comes In Sunday or Monday
  11. Okay, It's at least cool that you have another spot to consider at least when the new figures come out.
  12. @jcast For a variant those prices Aren't bad, especially when factoring shipping. The average price around here in my area of NYC is about 9 bucks and change for any marvel universe.
  13. Yes, Since finding a regular vision, regular warpath, and xf aa are all hard to get to begin with for me and this is a sightings/hauls board please share.
  14. Lol, It seems the sighting thread does get off topic too often for my taste too Btw Anybody see or score a stretch venom please pm me, I can pay or work out some sort of trade....
  15. I found 2 jeans on the pegs today, is monkey face a htf rare? I didn't need her..... also saw union jack,love the design why does he warm pegs? a army of Iron-mans and wolverines, multiple mans, a havok and bucky old and winter soldier...
  16. well that didn't last long then, is it us fans or the scalpers who seem to have the site on virtual lock down? and better question how do people do it?
  17. I officially hate the stockpilers and the scalpers now. Just one regular vision, just one *sob*........
  18. Dammit. Dammit, dammit...... Missed vision again........ F********ck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  19. what is a GB pack?? never mind, Greatest battles. I hate initials, sometimes it takes me longer to figure out what they stand for when people use them.... just me, I'm getting old.
  20. Archangel at Hasbro toy shop.... oh, somebody beat me to it. wonder how long these will last....
  21. Um they should be mad at themselves for being too lazy or stupid to not rotate stock instead of letting pegwarmers build up and leave them there until the store stops carrying product. This is really stupid, all it means is scalpers paying employees to be shady and leave us the crap.
  22. Thanks guys! Sorry I must have missed this but my commissions start at $50 dollars plus parts supplied. The price can go up depending on how much sculpting is involved. Just him me up through PM. Same as mine. He's my protege...LOL Ovaltine! The mug is round, the can is round, they should call it round-tine! ( I hope you guys get the Seinfeld reference) Anyways here's my latest commission, Daft Punk in their Tron fits. More pics HERE man i frickin love daft punk! ... i think you might have a commision coming up man... "One more time..... gonna celebrate, celebrate and.... " what was the upper torso piece I recognized all the rest of the bits minus the custom heads
  23. that Warpath went fast or people quietly ordered and didn't tell anybody this time. the sunfire is barely hanging on, lets see how long he last. I clicked on the site it said both in stock, the vision pic looked like it jumped too (but maybe just because the other too were) then looked here to give a heads up and warpath was gone. I ordered them first time around so i only want a regular vision.
  24. warpath and sunfire, Maybe vision just came and went at the hasbro shop.... Sunfire still up
