  1. I finally scored a Tony Stark and an Ast. Wolvie. Decent paint on both. I left 2 flesh Absorbing Mans. He's not enough of a change from the SW 2 pack to pick up. I wasnt going to pick up the Tony Stark but he's a perfect replacement for the Iron Man that game out a while back. Now all I need is Ice Man and I'm caught up...again.
  2. Dang, I've almost completely taken Walmart off of my hunting map because the 1 store (out of like 6) that still carries MU suuuuuccks. They've had the same 2 packs and 6 month old revisions cases on the pegs forever. Although I think I remember someone asking about the Thing/Bulldozer SW 2 pack. There's three of them there. Wave 16 where are youuuu??
  3. I've seen what looks like the Wave 15 Revision 2 cases around but the Revision 1 cases (Electro, Iron Fist, Guardian) are no where to be seen.
  4. Found another (3 actually) at a different Target. Picked the best one out of the bunch and now I'm thinking the one I found this morning is better. Ha! Damn my anal retentiveness.
  5. I found the Power Man/Iron Fist pack this morning at a Target. I really wanted this pack but the wash on PM was terrible. I'm hoping to find a better one down the road.
  6. I finally, FINALLY found the DP/Taskmaster set at a TRU about 30 min away. Pretty pumped. I was taking my son to a little wildlife park and we got there too early, so I stopped in a TRU to kill some time and I found it. I also saw the Avengers figures with the light up bases. It still blows my mind that these are $20. The damn 3-packs are $20! Are they trying to say the light up plastic base is worth $12? It's a shame they're TRU exclusives too because they usually have the worst clearance prices.
  7. Scored wave 15 this morning at a Target. Bought Rogers, X-23, Namor (with Imperious Rex base) and 2 Darkhawks (one for me and one for a friend). I left one of every other figure and both Ultrons. I may pick him up later if he's on sale unless someone tells me that he glows in the dark then I'll buy him right away. If not he's just a basic repaint to which I say nay!! Also, not sure if it's been mentioned but the Captain Britain/Spidey 2 pack is up on HTS.
  8. Damn I really want DP and Tasky but I can't justify spending $22 (with shipping). I has to be in the wild somewhere! @Saywhat - holy crap dude. I know you got a lot on eBay but thank goodness for new collectors like you because you clear the pegs of the stuff all of us already have. The bad news for you is that now that you're somewhat caught up you get to play the waiting game like the rest of us.
  9. Found a Destroyer and the Warriors Three this morning. I only picked up the Destroyer because I hate the movie likeness figures.
  10. Went to a couple targets today in hopes of finding the new wave. Nothing but a bunch of revision cases which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm happy to see that Dr. Strange, Cable, Cyclops etc are still available. A random kid (or adult) could pick up one of those awesome figures and be hooked to the line just like the rest of us. I did pick up the short haired Ms. Marvel. Didn't really want her but she's different enough from the other two that I figured, what the hell. Still looking for the black costume one.
  11. I did actually right after I posted that to see if I stuck my foot in my mouth. Wave 14 Revision 2 is showing the black costume. Maybe we'll get a revision of the revision...
  12. I'm really disappointed that we're not getting the black outfit Carol Danvers. The Classic is just the Variant Dark Mrs. Marvel with a different head. Or visa versa. She doesnt even have her little belly upside down V-Cut.
  13. Classic Ms. Marvel as in black costume or short hair red costume?
  14. Doom, do you need a Doom? I've messaged you a few times. What's up?
  15. Found an entire wave 14 today at Target but I already have it so I passed. If anyone needs any of them let me know by tomorrow morning and I'll head back.
  16. Yeah, it happens once a year in Massachusetts. The good news: no tax! The bad news: really crowded stores. Happening here too in Florida. If I could only find the DP/Taskmaster set I'd be able to take advantage of it.
  17. Can somone lmk what is going on here.Did they raise these guys from the dead to fight again or something?I cannot keep up anymore. AFAIK, most of those characters were still alive, but not being used in any comics. Goliath is the only one that I know of that was dead, but the rest were just obscure. Captain Ultra? Virtue? Legacy? I only knew who they were because I'm obsessive over the Marvel Handbooks, but that roster pushed even my knowledge to its limit. I can't imagine most people would have had a clue without some type of re-introduction. I'm confused because I believe they are taking the name of Revengers, which also happend to be the name of the Cancerverse version of the Avengers from Realm of Kings through Thanos Imperative.
  18. That's exactly how every target around me has been displaying them if at all. Not much of a "display".
  19. I scored an extra Astral Strange. The card is a little curled since it came in the end cap cases. If anyone wants it PM me for details.
  20. I found the entire wave 14 this morning with reg Dr. Strange at Target! I've yet to see the actual end cap display but the figures were spread between the pegs and the end shelf. I can finally cancel my BBTS pre-order since I just saved about $15 by buying them at retail. I am kinda bummed that I passed on the stand-up Scarlet Spider I found last week. Does anybody have one they'd be willing to sell or trade for an upside down Scarlet Spidey?
  21. It's so weird that they are throwing in random amounts of Wave 14 in the end cap cases.
  22. I saw a X-Force pack in person the other day. Has anyone else noticed that Wolvie's costume (the sculpt and ribbing) looks a lot like his Astonishing outfit? I think it's safe to say that this is the mold we'll get for the next Wolvie.
  23. I think they're still a chance we may see them in future revision cases. They never really announce what their putting in those. We usually just find out from EE or BBTS. I'm still waiting to see if the future revision case with Ms. Marvel will actually be the Carol Danvers version.
  24. That's awful. At least you're holding her accountable for that sort of bitchcraft. Also, I don't think all Targets are like that. I've met employees who have been happy to check in the back for me from at least three different Targets over the last few months. I don't know if it's a store policy or if these people simply didn't care about it, but they were very helpful. I think it's just a matter of actually finding someone who wants to help you. Keep up the good fight. Sooner or later they're going to realize that it's not worth being a douchebag to the customer and that actually helping you out will save a lot of time and complaints. Here's my question. If they're not allowed to pull items from the back (even though every Target I've been to usually does) why do they have the scanners that tell you if there is stock in the warehouse? I went to another Target today and found 4 full pegs including 6...SIX Falcons. I asked a worker if they had any in the back. He came back and said they had two more boxes, which I'm guessing were Wave 14, but I'm only looking for FO Torch. So I thanked him and went on my way.
