  1. 5! I'm hoping mine are as abundant as yours. I'd probably buy them all if i saw them and get rid of my silver ones. Yeah and that's after another member apparantly picked up 9! I thought for sure he would have cleaned them out.
  2. Finally scored the OG colored Sentinel at the same Marshall's that another user posted about. They had about 5 so I picked the best one. Now to find a way to get rid of the silver one...
  3. I'm not sure when Iceman sported the big 'X' on his chest but I feel like that would have been a better addition to this set and they should have released the one in this set on a single card. And I like this set but the only thing worse than another Wolverine is another Iron Man. And the only thing worse than another Iron Man is another Cyclops. Seriously, I already have 4 and none of them are the astonishing one that I really want.
  4. Cracked open the Thanos/Adam Warlock pack this weekend. I have to say, next to the DD/Bullseye pack this is my favorite yet. The colors are rich, Thanos is bad ass enough to deserve a repaint and I dont even mind the half glove they gave Adam. If we're going to get quality like this I dont mind if they only release a few of waves a year.
  5. Finally scored the Thanos/Warlock and Sinister/Gambit 2 Packs here in S. Florida at a Walmart. No sign of those Avengers packs. It actually looks like a few Walmarts are starting to carry MU again. For a while there was only one.
  6. I finally found Storm and Psylocke this morning at a Target. I also picked up white Iron Fist. I passed on him several times now but I couldn't help myself this time. On to wave 18!
  7. The Targets around here finally have ML and nicely priced at $14.99. Take that TRU!
  8. I missed at least 3 cases of wave 17 today. There were 5-6 of each Iron First, Thors, and Patriots but no Storm or Psylocke. I did manage to snag the DD/Bullseye and Quicksilver/Wonderman 2-packs. I'm hoping to find another DD/Bull pack though only because DD's face has a ton of black shading that I'm not too crazy about.
  9. Saw Avengers at TRU. I passed on a Loki and it looks like I just missed Ult Thor. The rest of them are kinda ass. And I agree with Evil, that Hulk is terrible no matter how you look at it. It's Green Lantern terrible.
  10. Interesting find. Saw one AoT Thor amass full pegs of revision stuff. I can't imagine they put out a full case when the pegs are already full so I'm kinda thinking someone just grabbed a handfull from the warehouse. This particular Target only restocks from their warehouse not from the back.
  11. This is just a lesson for Hasbro. Don't make crappy irrelevant repaints when you know your consumers want a normal version.
  12. Sigh...it's officially been about 45 days since I've seen a single new MU figure. Congratulations retailers. You've succeeded in allowing me to NOT give you my money.
  13. Like others have said here, the lack of product after the holidays happens every year. Some retailers do inventory and aisle resets so it wouldn't make sense to receive a deluge of product during that time. If you really want to save time & gas then resume your hunt in early March. You'd think Hasbro would learn from this and, I donno, not release waves during this time. They're obviously not selling many since no stores are even bothering stocking them.
  14. My Targets are abysmal. The toy isles are depressing. There's more blue showing through the pegs than card backs. Come ooooon restock!!
  15. I think part of it is that most eBay sellers do Buy It Now and jack the price up to its supposed "worth". Then it sits there for a year and no one wants to go near it. Putting an item up for action is the only way to find it's true value. An item is only worth what someone will pay for it. Although I do agree that seller probably just screwed up in this case. I just sold all of my Palisades Muppets figures. People had some of the rarer ones up for $150-$300 for a single figure! I put mine up for action and they sold for $50-$75 which is probably closer to their real value. Also a lot of it was sold to Europeans since our dollar is barely worth the paper its printed on. So they can go a little higher without feeling ripped off.
  16. So they're completely reorganizing the Hasbro isle at my closest Target so I'm hoping next we'll get the new end caps. It helps that they currently only have 2 Ultrons, a Falcon, and 2 Gladiators too.
  17. Just scored an Iron Fist, Guardian, Electro (variant), and Iceman thanks to Jason1551 and Wolverine2281. Iron Fist - kinda meh but I wanted him to pal around with modern Luke Cage Guardian - I love the metallic red paint but once again the wash is kinda terrible. I'm really hoping they keep the red for future alpha flight members (unlike what they did to X-force) and fix the wash. Electro - awesome. Finally a figure that fits that terrible body sculpt. Iceman - Cool figure but they really missed the target with accessory. I nice ice slide would have been great. I have no idea why they made the X-Force version either. I guess it's easier to paint an "X" on a figure than mold an x-belt. Thanks again forum homies.
  18. Stretch Strike Venom is on DisneyStore.com if anyone is still dying for him.
  19. I'm kinda happy my stores are some what dry right now. Last year they were flooded with crappy figures and they didnt get in new stock until March. I'm hoping for wave 17 in the next couple weeks. Fingers crossed!
  20. I've totally struck out this holiday season. Does anyone have an Electro, Guardian, or Iron Fist they'd be willing to sell? My stores are flooded with the previous revision cases so I'm guessing they're going to skip right by the good one.
  21. I need some nerdy advice. I know for a fact I'm getting TWO Sentinels for Christmas. Both are from Amazon so I'm sure they're the Silver version. I also already have the SDCC one so I plan on opening one of these. I'm not quite sure what to do with the other one. Thoughts?
  22. Oooo, but that would look good with Commander Rogers. Since Bucky Cap was carrying around THE shield he used this holographic forcefield shield that was pretty sweet.
  23. I'm sure they're real but they look totally fake. Whats with the GIANT letters for their names? I do like the replacement for the SHIELD symbol with the little cards of the characters. Nice touch.
  24. Nabbed a SS Venom at a Target today. They had 3 surprisingly. I also found 3 Comic War Machines at a Disney outlet store for only $7.00! Only picked up one though.
