  1. Been having really good luck finding Avengers figures. Got Loki and Hawkeye. Cool looking figs for sure. I wouldn't mind grabbing the maskless Cap either.
  2. Had an awesome day. Finally completed my Iron Fist collection by grabbing the black dragon version at TRU. Now have them all (Comic Pack classic version, yellow dragon, black dragon, white/gold). Came home to both Iron Fist TPB's I bought on ebay arriving. Perfect timing. I was intending on buying the first wave of Marvel Legends (I'm going to give them a try) at TRU also (they had the entire wave, non-variant) and now there's no evidence at all that they were there. I think I've learned my first ML lesson: If you see Marvel Legends, buy them. Because they don't stick around long.
  3. My brother just called to let me know he found the entire Psylocke wave at a Target in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The best part though: two collectors came through the aisle while he was talking to me. (He said it was apparent they were collectors because of how quickly they combed through the Marvel Universe and Star Wars figures.) Anyways, they see my brother holding Psylocke and flip out. One of the guys tries to tell my brother a sob story about how his little cousin loves Psylocke (which makes total sense...) and offers to buy it from him for $5. He hadn't bought it yet, the guy basically wanted to buy the right to buy Psylocke from him. So, my brother is now $5 richer and a collector paid $12 plus tax for a figure for his "cousin"... Good times.
  4. Had some nice finds today in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Finally seen Wave 17 at my lcs, plus the Gambit two-pack. Picked up the white Iron Fist and also finally grabbed a Magneto. TRU had a fresh case of Marvel Legends, non-variant. Look pretty cool, but I'm still hesitant to start a collection.
  5. Best hunting day I've had in a while. Saw three Guardian's, grabbed one. Grabbed an Electro too, though mine seems to be the regular version. I thought only variant Electro's were out now? Saw a bad ass Zombie soldier guy thingy in the G.I. Joe section. I don't collect them (or know anything about them) but he looked super cool. And if anyone collects WWE figures here, I finally found Legends Series 6 and the new Elite 12's. Grabbed a Daniel Bryan.
  6. Spent last night stocking at TRU for Black Friday. Got to open two cases of MU. It was killed me to put all those beautiful figs on the pegs. Both were the latest revision with Doc Sampson so be on the look out at your local store if you need any of those. Also, we got some of the Mortal Kombat figs but only the cyborg three pack. It was the Ann Arbor, Michigan Toys R Us for anyone in Southeast Michigan, by the way.
  7. My local Walmart finally got wave 3 of Cap figures. Spotted a movie Hydra soldier, nothing else important. I did see all the new six inch figs for Thor and Cap. Not sure if they're rare or not (I'm not into 6 inch figs), can pick up one for a good trade. That comic series Thor is bad ass.
  8. Just grabbed Absorbing Man (flesh), Wolvie and (FINALLY!) Tony Stark Iron Man. Great day for a TRU run.
  9. Found a Commander Rogers while I was at TRU for a job interview. Didn't grab it and I don't know if anyone still needs him but if you want to trade for him I can grab him. By the way, got the job at TRU, so it looks like I'll be getting the good MU's finally.
  10. So happy! Grabbed the Powerman and Ironfist pack from Target today. They're probably my second favorite characters after Iron Man so I'm thrilled. If anyone out there is looking in Southeast Michigan, they have about 3 of those and 4 of the Captain Britain packs at the Carpenter Road Target. I also grabbed a Cap comic book pack (classic Cap and Winter Soldier). It was on clearance for $3.74! I didn't need it but who would pass on it at that price?
  11. I've actually almost completed mine. I'm close to finally getting the upper torso - after that, I only need the hands and the right leg.
  12. Just grabbed the blue FF pack from Walmart. I actually prefer the classic look to the Future Foundation look, so I'm happy. Everything else was the usual: 8 Iron Men, a Cyclops, and a Scarlett Spider.
  13. Just got a metal Absorbing Man today. The paint looks a little shoddy on the pants though, anyone else have this problem?
  14. Is Electro really that rare? Yeah, my local LCS had an Electro sitting around forever. I didn't even know he was hot. I've seen him 3 or so times in the wild.
  15. That's the best Hulk I've ever seen. Unbelievable.
  16. Just grabbed a classic Ms. Marvel. Only need black Ms. Marvel now. Also, finally got variant Absorbing Man (metal version) off ebay. Need the rest of wave 16 still though.
  17. Only one haul today but it's not too shabby. Thanks mureview.net!
  18. Same place I got my Dark Ms. Marvel. Kroger gets some good figs in.
  19. My TRU finally restocked! MU's were picked through other than a Green Goblin, which I grabbed. I need him but I'll trade for wave 15. The Avenger light up base figs didn't impress me. The Hulk doesn't look like a new mold at all and Cap looked lame in matte blue. Pass. Also, they had all the new WWE figures. Otunga and Darren Young packs were aplenty. I don't collect them but I've heard they're very hard to find. I spotted that Chewbacca figure too. I remember someone saying they needed it so I stashed it. Let me know. Looking for wave 15 minus Rogers (especially Darkhawk).
  20. I just got my Wave 15 order from BBTS, and I paused when I looked at the Steve Rogers figure...is that picture of him on the packaging just the smuggest, cockiest, sonofabitch in the whole Marvel Universe? Who the hell drew him like that? I like it. That guy is all swagger, especially in Fear Itself #6. By the way, just gave mine an extra Cap shield I had lying around. It's badass.
  21. Just found some wave 15...a lone Steve Rogers. I'm happy though: it's the one figure that was a must-have for me in this wave. Now I can relax, catch up, and pick and choose some other wave 15 figs.
  22. Grabbed carded Ultron on ebay for $10 shipped, so pretty good deal. Haven't seen wave 15 in stores yet but if I can get some decent deals like Ultron, I'll just grab the rest through ebay too.
  23. Thanks for the help. Is it possible to find the upper torso loose? I've only seen it on carded Kitty's. Anyone want to sell me some pieces for cheap? Or trade?
  24. Hi guys. I don't collect Marvel Legends (I'm a 3.75 collector) but being a huge Pym fan, I've decided to attempt to get the pieces to build Giant Man, seeing as he would probably blend in well with the Marvel Universe line in my display and he looks really freaking cool. Just some standard questions: Are any parts harder to get than others? And how hard? I'm noticed left upper arm and left foot pieces are easy to come by. Is it possible to assemble him for less than $50? I'm trying to be smart and purchase the pieces one at a time for cheap. Thanks in advance.
