  1. Finally saw remnants of the Cable wave this morning at Wal-Mart. Glad I had ordered a case of these as they have been scarce in these parts.


    I did score the new Gi Joe Wave. The Jungle Bat and Steel Brigade are sweet!

    Passed on Cobra Commander and Blowtorch as I really don't need any more renditions of either of these figures.

    My Joes should be here Tuesday. Ordered a case from HTS


    Great wave IMO.

    Steel Brigade is fantastic.


  2. Picked up USAgent and the 3-pack this morning. I have to say that I am pretty impressed with all of them. The paint apps were pretty good, and the sculpts are awesome. Passed on Crossbones, as I know next to nothing about the character and didn't care for the sculpt.


    Aw, hate to see a crossbones left in the wild. Poor Thing.


    R.I.P. Macho Man......

  3. Stopped at Wal-Mart at lunch and I was excited to see an employee bringing out the Captain America figures.

    I was immediately disappointed to learn that a different employee had already taken the Red Skull and Crossbones figures.

    At least the guy who was stocking the shelves was cool and honest about it.


    So this is now the 3rd time I have come inches short of getting these figures.


  4. Stopped at TRU at lunch and a fellow collector nicely left a pile of the X-Men boxed sets on the ground as to say “No need to go through these, there are no variants”.


    The Captain America and Thor endcaps look great....if they actually had more action figures that is.

    Half of the Captain America Endcap were Motorcycles and almost all of the Thor was dress-up and play weapons.

    The Green Lantern cube is collecting dust, as is the aisle section.

    I can’t believe that Mattel considers articulation to be for adult collectors. Kids are not stupid. I remember my mom would sometimes buy me knock-off gi-joes from the supermarket that had no knee or elbow joints and I knew right away they were garbage. Isn’t it sad that the Green Lantern line has the same amount of articulation as Secret Wars did some 25 years ago?


    Have not seen a new Gi Joe figure since the shock trooper wave and I think Hasbro has stopped shipping Star Wars altogether.

  5. I stumbled upon an aisle refresh at Target (RTE 22) and was able to pick up the Cap figures. The blue paint that was used is pretty horrific, but that didn’t stop me from buying them. Also, I noticed there are 2 versions of the off-road vehicle which I thought was weird. One has a more realistic paint job.

    Now I wait for series 2 of Thor and Cap....


    Non Marvel---I still keep missing out on the 2 latest Clone Wars waves and the Heath Slater WWE 2-Pack.

    If you think Hasbro is bad with case assortments, they have nothing on Mattel....

  6. "Scalpers" will find the figures wether you post here or not. They have made it their job to hunt down figures for a living.

    HElp out your fellow collectors and post the locations or at least area. It helps us know where to look and where not to look.



    I think I can speak for the masses here, but if you post something like this "Found wave 13 today, now I am caught up!" you are pretty much saying nothing.

  7. When I went to TRU last Friday, both of the ones near me didn't have anything new. One of the employees stocking the shelves said that whenever Marvel stuff comes in, a couple of the employees immediately hold the new stuff and put it in the upstairs offices waiting for their friends to come get them. In return, they get paid $. Very sad for collectors like myself to have a chance.




    I hate hearing stuff like this.

    Events like this cause people like me to order cases out of fear....

  8. Just got my shipping confirmation from Entertainment Earth for my Wave 13 Case. I will have extras for trade when I get it in.


    Also got my shipping confirmation for the new Comic Packs from Small Joes.

    Can it be that I am all caught up with the exception of Lizard and Scorpion?


    How many come in a set at EE? I see the wave 13 set for $99 has only 9 figures shown. Do you get doubles of any of the because most cases have 12 like on BBTS and such.
