  1. Have you ever visited? Have you ever even left your hometown? As a long time NYC-er, I don't think I've ever seen a figure swap or items missing from a package in person here unlike what I've seen posted from Targets and Walmarts all over the rest of the country. Granted, the Port Authority bus terminal is a bit of a cesspool (as are most bus stations across the country) but if you ever choose to visit I think you'll find yourself pleasantly surprised by the city, culture, and people here.
  2. I stopped in a few Duane Reade / Walgreens on the UWS today and I counted 10 spread across 4 stores. I think a lot of people were able to grab her online so people might not be hoarding them when they see them in-store.
  3. Target put up two new exclusives with 4/21 pre-order dates: Spider-Man: Homecoming Spider-Man & Marvel's MJ: https://www.target.com/p/marvel-spider-man-legends-series-spider-man-homecoming-6-spider-man-marvel-s-mj-collectible-figure-2pk-exclusive/-/A-75663801 Symbiote Spider-Man & Kraven The Hunter: https://www.target.com/p/spider-man-legends-series-6-symbiote-spider-man-kraven-the-hunter-figure-2pk-target-exclusive/-/A-75663800

  5. Amazon has some good ML deals today for Cyber Monday: Sentinel / Wolverine: $84.59 MCU10 Cap / Crossbones: $25.47 MCU10 IM / Pepper / Mandarin: $44.99 MCU10 Ant-Man / YellowJacket: $26.24 MCU10 Thor / Sif: $23.79 MCU10 IM Mark VII: $14.99 (has been this price for a week) MCU10 Red Skull: $11.97 Black Widow & Motorcycle: $13.97 Walmart is matching many of those deals, plus: MCU10 IM / Thanos / Dr Strange: $39.00 MCU10 Cap / Crossbones: $20.97 MCU10 IM Mark 1 / Tony Stark $24.86 (has been this price for a while)
  6. For anyone who has been holding off on the Vintage carded ML figures, EE has great deals on them for Black Friday - Wave 1 set for $52.49 ( av $8.75/each) and Wave 2 set for $87.49 (av $14.58/each) with free shipping and their usual mint guarantee: Wave 1: https://www.entertainmentearth.com/product/marvel-legends-super-heroes-vintage-6inch-figures-wave-1/hsc3994a Wave 2: https://www.entertainmentearth.com/product/marvel-legends-super-heroes-vintage-6inch-figures-wave-2/hsc3994b
  7. Thanks for posting! I haven't bought any of the MCU10 sets yet, but now I may pull the trigger on this one. Walmart's online pricing is crazy. This exclusive is discounted by almost 50% and yet their Luke Cage / Claire Temple set is marked UP to $64.99. I assume the Cage set is priced the way it is because Walmart has a bot blindly scraping Amazon and 3rd party sellers are scalping it there for $64.99, but you'd think someone would notice the ridiculous pricing and adjust it. I reported it earlier this week through their online feedback form but I'm pretty sure that feedback goes into a black hole.
  8. Easy choice for me - The Thing. I've been considering selling my ML collection off after assessing how many I accumulated this year and how little space I have to display, and I've already decided that if I do purge the only two I'm keeping are the Thing and Juggernaut wave Deadpool.
  9. If you still need him, Walmart has a few in stock online for $18.84. I just got one and there were three left https://www.walmart.com/ip/AVENGERS-6-INCH-LEGENDS-THANOS/294971588
  10. I have 2 Black Knights and 3 of Multiple Man. When there's an extra head I typically buy extras for displaying them with the extra heads. Sometimes I wait until they get down in the $10 - $15 range, sometimes I buy them when they first hit. In the case of Black Knight and Multiple Man I bought them off of HTS where they've been available several times - I'm pretty sure I even posted in this thread when they went up (given that this is supposed to be a sightings & hauls thread). So you're one of those people who only buys one or two figures from a wave? Usually the popular ones, right? Meaning anyone who wants to complete the BAF can't because you bought one of the figures and the store won't restock while the rest of the wave is on the pegs. Ok... I'm being intentionally over dramatic here - My point is don't judge other people's collecting habits. If you're upset your local Walmart doesn't have a figure in stock there are usually multiple options to get one online. PS - If you want to debate "the right way" to collect Marvel Legends feel free to start a separate topic outside of sightings and hauls. PPS - That all said, if I walked into Target and they only had three of Multiple Man, I wouldn't be a dee eye cee kay and buy all three - I'd probably buy just one there and buy another two online or at other stores. PPPS - I think I posted here multiple times when Mysterio was available both at HTS and Walmart.
  11. This is a sightings and hauls thread. Please take the critiques of other folks collecting habits elsewhere. Thanks.
  12. I already got my Thing in the mail, but I swear some flipper intentionally went to every Walgreens near me and returned one Mr Fantastic last week to block all my stores from getting a shipment since they both share the same WIC.
  13. My online order of the Thing was delivered today (Sunday!) and he is glorious! I've been waiting for him since they announced Sue Storm at I think SDCC 2016, and he doesn't disappoint. I was never really into the F4 comics as a kid and only bought around a dozen issues from #300 onward as I stopped buying comics shortly thereafter, but as an ML figure he's easily my favorite.
  14. Back up online! Use the Marvel Legends search query and add to cart from there as the direct link hangs for some reason: https://www.walgreens.com/search/results.jsp?Ntt=marvel+legends Direct link (NOT FUNCTIONING RIGHT NOW): https://www.walgreens.com/store/store/product/view_product_details.jsp?id=prod6379219
  15. Walgreens Thing is back up!!! (I ordered at 8:00 PM EST) Use the Marvel Legends search query and add to cart from there as the direct link hangs for some reason: https://www.walgreens.com/search/results.jsp?Ntt=marvel+legends Direct link (NOT FUNCTIONING RIGHT NOW): https://www.walgreens.com/store/store/product/view_product_details.jsp?id=prod6379219
  16. Someone posted this in a Funko group - Walgreens shelf plan for Marvel stuff for October - December with space for Thing, Magik, and Spidey wave figures up top.
  17. 8 Things??? Party on Yancy Street! I was highly confident earlier this week that I'd be able to find him locally when he starts shipping, but for some crazy reason two of my local stores just put out 6 Mr Fantastic figures and another one just put out 10 Daredevils (no, that's not a typo). With all of those along with the Venom and 1st Deadpool waves on the shelves I'm a little nervous about them finding room for Ben Grimm.
  18. Did anyone manage to save the direct link to the product page instead of the link to the search results? Congrats!
  19. Surfer is really hitting hard now in Manhattan. While looking for some Funko horror Pops I made the rounds of my local Duane Reades / Walgreens again today and found multiples in 3 of the 6 I hit, not including the store I got mine in on Tuesday. (No luck on the Pops though!) Also saw Wolverine and Boxer Deadpool in GameStop.
  20. Went out for lunch and hit 6 Duane Reade's / Walgreens near me while I was out. At the very last one, which I'd also stopped in last night, there was a crate at the end of the toy/candy aisle, so just for fun I popped it open. Inside, a couple of ML from the Vulture wave and 4 Silver Surfers! Bought one, put one on the shelf in case anyone stops in before they unpack, and left the other two in the crate. (Btw, NYC-UWS 94th & Columbus)
  21. For those of you who had their Silver Surfers canceled, how did you find out? I haven't received an email or a phone call, my other items shipped, and I still see "Ordered: 1 | Shipped: 0 pk" for SS, but nothing that would indicated the item was canceled. In other news, I've been seeing more and more of the Venom wave at most of my local my Duane Reades / Walgreens. Also saw all of the SP//DR wave and Warlock(!) wave at a local Target this weekend, inclusive of Cyclops.
  22. One Duane Reade / Walgreens by me had Venom, Carnage, Spider-Ham, and Typhoid Mary. Another had just Scream. I assume another in the area got Poison and the other Venom and Carnage from the case! Still no sign of the Surfer though, and I'm hoping my online order went through - I never got a confirmation email although I got to the confirmation page.
  23. IIRC it's been all over the place. I think one year it was as early as 10:30 EST and another as late as 3:30 EST. Last year I was on vacation and missed when they first went up so I don't have last year's info. That said, if all you're looking for is the Defenders set I don't think it will sell out very quickly given the price point, the MCU haters, etc
  24. So did anyone decide they want this when it goes on sale at HTS on Monday? Did anyone get it in person at SDCC? I'm definitely going for at least one of the Star Wars exclusives, but leaning towards a pass on this one. And Red Skull with Tesseract is a pass for me as well.
  25. While walking around Manhattan today I stopped in no less than 9 Duane Reades / Walgreens and the closest I came to him was a couple of Sue Storms. Decided to pull the trigger tonight - thanks! You can be like me and order a couple of bottles of Dial Ultra Fresh Hydrating Body Wash and Listerine Pocket Strips to get to the $35 threshold!
