  1. have you tried putting it in hot water for a bit to loosed it up? I grabbed Scorpion and Sub Zero yesterday. The paint jobs on these two figures can be pretty horrific - but I was able to grab a pretty decent one of each of them. Sub Zero is pretty great - not much to complain about. Scorpion however has probably the loosest knee joints I have ever seen on a figure with this type of articulation. Will it help or hurt to put my Scorpion in a hot water bath - then put him in a freezing cold water bath to tighten his joints? Or is there a better way to do it. I need to all also do hot and cold baths on their weapons...
  2. I saw Scorpion and Sub Zero today. I didn't pick up any because my wife was with me The less she sees going into the house the better... But yeah $10 a pop. One of the Scorpions I saw had its torso popped from the waist in the package. I hope the quality is good in this line - my Cyborg 3 pack had good quality. I still have not seen the Street Fighter figures at retail.
  3. Pretty much sums up my hunt today. No new FF or GoTG sets. just order those online at HTS.com using the "fsfam11" discount code - it should still be good - they will come to about $15 each and shipping will be free. Helluva deal. Just a note about the FF set - if you order from HTS you will probably get the white version. update - just checked and it still works.
  4. Thanks for the heads up! I am at work now and I cant see your pictures - I can't wait to see some shots of these figures opened up. If that is what your photos are of - thanks in advance!!! I just checked TRU.com and they are listed at $10 each and in stock - but only show listings for Scorpion and Sub Zero. Were there any other figures? Looks like we should soon be seeing Johnny Cage, and Jax. There is also an "exclusive" case assortment - I don't know what it is exclusive to - but that listing shows Reptile, Raiden and Baraka appearing in this line as well. and then of course there will be that big ninja pack - which may or may not be singles - here is hoping it is a pack since it is 6 repaints. And then the Cyrax, Sector, Smoke 3 pack. I cant wait to see these!
  5. this is the ebay dude that sold the SDCC red skulls http://myworld.ebay.com/sinodolls/&_tr...984.m1439.l2754
  6. Grabbed the whole absorbing man wave today at Target. There were two absorbing man figures on the pegs - both fleshy. Also my compound Hulks came today.
  7. Pretty sure the free shipping expired yesterday. and if I were to make a guess, I would guess the FF sets would be the white sets because they probably shipped with the GOTG sets. If anyone really wants to know then I would say don't hesitate to call HTS to ask. They were very willing to help when I called and asked last time.
  8. looks like all of the team packs are "in stock" at HTS. I hope this means my pre-ordered GOTG set will be shipping soon.
  9. You should pick that up yourself - at this point that is like ultra-trade bait if you dont want it for yourself
  10. Future Foundation from HTS yesterday and I also grabbed the Power Man / Iron Fist and Spiderman / Britain from WM yesterday.
  11. I just realized my 2 new comic packs, Britain/Spiderman and Power Man/Iron Fist, shipped from HTS yesterday.
  12. grabbed the Namor wave today - saw a full case of this wave at both TRU and Target
  13. wow - that is some terrible swapping going on there.... btw - TRU has all Marvel line action figures on sale buy 2 get 1 free.
  14. Agreed - I love that blue Iron Monger figure. He is probably my second most favorite figure in the IM2 line - the best figure being the comic version of Ultimate Iron Man. If I keep thinking about line - comic War Machine was sweet - as well as both movie and comic versions of Mark I All in all the line was probably far too over-saturated for individual figures to get the appreciation they deserved.
  15. Just purchased all but Doom (not interested in another one of him right now) from wave 14 at TRU
  16. if ya can afford it get one of each - I really like the silver one!
  17. Yeah, I was at my local Super Walmart yesterday and the employee told me that they were going to be doing a reset in the toy department this week. I am hoping to find the Strange wave - I have not seen it yet and I doubt my Target will get it in.
  18. Tax free weekend? I have never heard of such a thing - that would be pretty cool!
  19. This is long - scroll over if you dont want to hear another Target #$#@# fest. Similar thing happened to me yesterday. I was in the action figure aisle yesterday, about to leave after finding nothing I needed, when a Target employee approached me asking if I was finding everything I wanted today. I said actually I was looking for more of these (I pointed to the MU figures). She said "hold on, I do not have a scanner. Let me get Stephanie - she has one." Stephanie, a middle aged woman, turns the corner, asks what I was looking for, and I motioned to the MU figures. She looks at the pegs - there are 5 hanging there. She says, "There are some right there." I say "yes, I don't want any of those." She says, well I can't do anything about it because there are some right there." I said, "one of your coworkers just approached me asking me if I needed help and she said she would check the back for me." She said, "well I won't because there are some right there." She would not even scan it with the tool she had in her hands. I was then dumbfounded by the lack of customer service on her part that all I could say was "how rude" - and I turned and walked away with my wife and daughter to leave the store. By the time I got out of the store I was pretty ticked - thinking to myself if I would treat someone like that at my work I would get my ass chewed out, without a second thought. So, my wife and daughter got back in the car and I reentered the store in search of Stephanie :hulk: When I found her she looked me in the eye as I did her and I approached her with my hand extended to shake her hand. It was at at this time I took her hand to shake it to make sure I had her name right, and while shaking her hand I looked at her name badge and said, "Stephanie, I just want to let you know that I feel the way you treated me as a customer in this store was rude as hell, and I will be contacting your manager about it." She responded, "I am sorry you feel that way." I turned and walked away to exit the store. As soon as I got home I called the store manager. She let me know that she was near by and witnessed the whole thing. She said that her employees are instructed to do this because it is supposedly an agreement between them and the distributors of licensed merchandise to not pull product for customers. I asked her, "so if I walked into your store and wanted to buy a shelving unit that comes in either black or white colors, and all you have on the floor is black and I want white, you will not pull it for me?" She said yes she would because it is not licensed. I said, so Target, as a company would be happy with me turning away from your store empty handed and go look elsewhere for product. She said no. I asked if Toys R Us has the same policy, she said she did not know. After going on with other questions to let her know that I think that is all BS I let her know that I was not pleased with the way she dealt with the situation and I asked her if this phone number (I already had it pulled up and prepared) 1.800.440.0680 as the number for corporate customer complaints. After she mumbled for a little bit realizing I was going to call corporate and complain on her and her store she confirmed that was the correct number and I let her know I would be calling as soon as I hung up - and I did just that. I called and left a report with their corporate offices - even going so far as to use strong words such as I felt as if this Target store was being prejudice towards me and what I wanted to purchase today. At this point I think each and every time I get treated this way at a Target store I will be making a corporate call until this policy is changed. I urge others to do this as well. And if I walk into that store today or whenever it may be and they put those "sorry we cannot pull collector figures" signs I will pull them all down just like I did last time. :spidey_deadtopic:
  20. I think if someone told me that I would have said something similar to "thank you (their name here), I will be letting your corporate offices know about how you were prejudice towards me in not letting me purchase available product in your store today."
