  1. alright, went to target 40 minutes away. picked up a destroyer! YAY! now for a negative note (which is common) i went to a target 10 minute away. i scanned the thor product and the evil computer of false hope told me there were more in the backroom. i found what appeared to be a kind lady, she goes to the back and five minutes later comes back with a 6 ft 260 lb. black guy. now, i remember asking for thor figures not heimdall himself but anyways this heimdall imposter goes on to tell me that ."there are plenty of thor figures here." i reply by telling him they are all thor and no one has bought them since march, can u put some new ones out? he replies by telling me not til these are sold. i told him that the dvd comes out in sept.. you think by then? and he shut up. moral of the story.. target can kiss my ass! hasbro can kiss my ass! yes the new figures look great at sdcc, but lets be realisitic. nothing is going to change about distribution and hasbros research with who really collects mu.. adult collectors.
  2. I would have passed on shocker. Looks like a dollar store generic spiderman toy imo. Kind of reminds me of the doc ock from the spiderman line..looks cheap. Ss venom is hands down one of the best 3.75 figures ever made.
  3. niiice haul evilanimation. I have the xforce set and it kicks ass!
  4. i see it now too lol! thank god! i was thinking great... another f'ing variant!
  5. i wasnt aware of 3 different crossbone in the cap line. checkout the paint job on each of crossbones head.
  6. i wasnt aware of 3 different crossbone in the cap line. checkout the paint job on each of crossbones head.
  7. oh yeah... that spiderman you see all the way on the bottom. that one is missing the figure and is still keeping the peg nice and toasty!
  8. here is my recent haul! anybody need an iron man? tru has plenty! hasblow is full of crap with its percentages... perfect example is with the picture i posted. @dragonkings.. so true. how can they determine percentages? its all bs.
  9. If hasbros figures were correct. Than why havent stores sold out of iron man2 wave 1 yet? I mean come on hasblow... wave 1! Am I going to see wave 2 from thor and wave 3 from cap?
  10. its like they do it to be fair to others and kids. when i see kids at target , tru, walmart, they are looking beyblade and the closest thing to marvel they look at is the spiderman line. kids dont know who the hell thanos is or dr strange! lol! target and tru have the system f'd up. i see it as.. you bring what you have in the back and might just spend 50 bucks and help you move some product for once instead having 30 mark v's sitting there and not making money for your store. thats another thing. HASBRO! STOP MAKING SO MANY OF THE SAME FIGURES YOU THINK KIDS WILL BUY! NEWSFLASH FOR YOU.. KIDS ARENT BUYING THEM! WE ARE FOCUS ON ADULT OLLECTORS WANTS AND FIRE YOUR MARKETING DIRECTORS AND DISTRIBUTION COORDINATORS!
  11. @spacemonkey Thats good! i was really only stating my experience.all the targets i go to the older people are a holes! and the store managers are nice, i guess just experiment and see what happens.
  12. @megadoomer we are discussing ways to avoid being told that target employees cant look in the back. we know about the scanners.
  13. i personally think a new thread should be made and it should be of all the dpci numbers for the stuff everyone is looking for with product description. save money, save gas.
  14. also. saturday mornings at some targets. they put alot of toys out for the weekend shoppers. target gets trucks in everyday. so if one day the scanner says no, the next day it can say yes.
  15. the people to avoid and ask at target are: to avoid: older men and woman. 40 and above non managers. ask: Store managers and not to be ethnic bias but i always ask hispanic men and women that are below 40 and asian people too. For some reason they are alot nicer than most. I ask guys our age who dont work in the toy area. i walk around the store until i find them. Thats where my luck is most. if all else fails, ask a store manager. they will help.
  16. @lucky311 another word of advice. I always ask a guy who u can tell can give a crap about his job or a girl who seems really nice. I never ask an older woman or man. They are cluless and follow the rules to a t. I walk around until I find the right person And so far the 4 targets I tried I'm successful in all 4.
  17. man i have seen probly 5 fo human torch 4 cable w/o hope 2 w hope 4 thanos 4 cyclops 6 apoc and only 6 wave 14. your from ohio.. im from illinois. the midwest is rough for collectors.
  18. i know tru and target are doing a toy aisle remodel. target is staring 7/24 thru the first week of august. tru is starting around 8/14 and wont finish until first week of sept. dont expect a whole lot. usually just some moving of product to a different location. Tru is getting voltron stuff and whatever product you see clogging the pegs, they are going to minimize there ordering for that product. example.. iron man 2. my friend is a tru store manager.
  19. @lucky311 next time a target employess tells you the scanner sucks, ask the store manager to help you out. I went to target yesterday. the employee brought out skaar and spidey from wave 14. I asked him ."is this it?" he said yes. i asked a store manager to check the back and she brought the whole wave. she told me they are trained not to bring everything out.
  20. deadpool/taskmaster up for grabs on tru website. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?p...dFindSrc=search
  21. the targets in my area arent doing theres until the week of 24th and after. but i did scan a mu figure and it read in stockroom: yes. the guy behind the electronics counter brought out this big box and i already knew it wasnt wave 14 ( when you live in the suburbs of chicago, you would understand) anyways, he pulled out an end cap tray. I picked up two cables w/ hope. Im looking to trade.
  22. I know for a fact targets are doing a toy aisel revamp starting jul 24 thru first week of august. Depends on the target. They are setting up their toy aisles for christmas... yes.christmas. I know a store manager.
  23. Picked up 2 cable with hope. Wanting to trade for shocker.
