  1. You won't regret getting into the line, best all around line at the price point on the market today imo. I agree 100%, but you wouldn't know it by all the incessant complaining by collectors that goes on.Not a Hasbro shill but For $20 we get a lot. People expect $50+ quality in these figures. Yeah. I started out collecting MU but moved to ML and eventually sold all my MU stuff. The original MU figures looked great in package, but once I opened them it made me sad that so many of them looked like they had polio with wonky legs and knee joints. Occasionally you get some bad paint ops with ML just like any line, but the figures themselves are quality items and the BAFs are addicting! And in actual "Sightings & Hauls" news, I found a few more Human Torches at another NYC-UWS Duane Reade, so if any locals missed the online sale check your friendly neighborhood DRs this week.
  2. Columbus between 89th & 90th. They've had the same dozen Namors for months, which replaced a dozen Daredevils they had for months. Today they had the one Human Torch, a bunch of the Namors, and a couple of the Sandman Wave they've had for a few weeks. One of the other DRs in the area has a big gap where a dozen Civil War figures used to be so either they may be getting them in the next day or two, or they already got them and someone grabbed them all. The rest of the DRs in the area haven't had a new figure since I restarted collecting in March :-(
  3. Also found him in the wild at a Duane Reade in Manhattan today too!
  4. Yep. They went live exactly at 10:00 AM EST, I got my order in with a credit card at 10:05 AM (after the site errored out on Paypal for me), and they went out of stock at 10:10 AM. Star Wars Captain Rex was up until 10:45 AM, and I realized after I placed my order that the IDW set was up as well, but while I was looking for the right thread here to post about the IDW set it went out of stock.
  5. There's only one Thor Wave. Also HTS.com isn't a store website . As far as I can tell they sell building materials. Please don't take drugs and post. This fine upstanding member of our community posted a heads-up that every individual figure from the Thor wave (aka the "entire wave") was available at hasbrotoyshop.com (aka HTS.com). Capisce paisan?
  6. FINALLY got a shipping confirmation for the Phoenix/Cyclops set today that I ordered on 8/15. Excited to be adding it to the collection at last!
  7. Actually I really like the way the Black Panther costumes look - I think they struck the right balance of comic-booky and something someone might actually wear. I mean, you didn't really expect Man-Ape to be running around in a big white gorilla suit did you?! 😂 That said I'm hoping Klaw gets to wear something a little more like his comic counterpart and we just haven't seen pics yet. Oh, and MCU Thanos? I agree with the 'meh'.
  8. Stopped by the TRU that opened in Times Square today around 90 minutes after they opened this morning. They had a pretty good selection of ML. Had a case or two of GotG2, Netflix, and a bunch of the Thor wave with plenty of everyone except Hela (I assume the crew I used to see waiting outside the old one grabbed them all as soon as they opened). They also had a bunch of Starlord/Ego and Groot, but no sign of Cyclops/Phoenix or Spidey/Mary-Jane.
  9. Dark Phoenix set finally available for ship to home again! https://m.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=118729776
  10. Dark Phoenix set finally available for ship to home again! https://m.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=118729776
  11. Opening and probably trying to sell the box. If I ever get the cash to have a place to properly display everything in box then I'll have enough cash to buy an extra MISB one off of eBay ;-)
  12. Whoohoo! Got back to my hotel and still in stock. Missed the IDW set but I was on the fence on that one so I'm not too upset.
  13. Hmmm... I've never found this to be the case so I don't know if I'd chance it. The SW items aren't available on HTS tomorrow so I don't know if that's good or bad for the Thor set - on one hand there will be fewer people flooding the site, but on the other hand there are probably a lot of people who would have checked out with the SW stuff first and then tried ML in a second order, so who knows. In recent years they've mostly gone up between 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST, so I'll be in a river in the Adirondacks when the insanity is happening. Hoping for a shot at a restock whenever that happens...
  14. I think the Asgard set was in stock from around 4:15 AM EST to 8:15 AM EST, not sure about the 12" Daredevil. Restocks for non-SDCC merchandise at HTS usually happen around that time, but the initial release of SDCC items usually happens during business hours. In recent years on the "official" SDCC release day they've gone up between 10:00 AM & 12:00 PM EST, but they also went up as late as 3:30 PM EST back in 2013 (IIRC).
  15. Ugh... Thanks for the confirmation. I can't believe I didn't hear my alert and missed it. (Not to mention I can't believe HTS f'd this up and released it before the date they communicated.) I'll be on vacation with crap internet connectivity on the 14th, so I was hoping to pick it up on a restock, but now that the 14th will likely BE the restock I'm thinking I can pretty much kiss it goodbye unless I pick it up off eBay. And just to add insult to injury, I missed the 20 minutes the Thor wave was up today as it went up while I was at work. At least I got the Man-Thing wave delivered today from my 20% off HTS order on Tuesday...
  16. I have a monitor on my computer watching the page at HTS and I heard it go off this morning. I checked my phone and the page had an add to cart button, but it also said out of stock and insufficient inventory when I tried to add it. However, when I checked the monitor on my computer, it looks like I missed an alarm overnight where it flipped to "in stock" for a couple of hours. Was it actually available and was anyone able to order it?????
  17. Man-Thing Wave now in stock at HTS: Electra: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c1781as00 Jessica Jones: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c1782as00 Daredevil: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c1779as00 Bullseye: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c1784as00 Punisher: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c1780as00 Blade: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c1783as00 Now if they'd just put up the Ragnarok wave I'll be all caught up! Ah, makes sense - thanks!
  18. The Homecoming Spider-Man / Iron Man Drone two pack is up for order at HTS: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c3501as00 Also, is the Starlord / Ego two-pack no longer an EE exclusive? It's listed as coming soon on HTS and is available for order at Walmart: http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/en/htsusa/brands/brands-M-Z/marvel-htsus-brands-marvel/-c1988as00 https://www.walmart.com/ip/Marvel-Legends-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Vol-2-Marvel-s-Ego-Star-Lord-2-Pack/55589169
  19. It was confirmed by Hasbro PR to the SW sites that the Star Wars items would not be available until September (and the product pages were pulled from HTS), but I don't think I've seen anything about any of the other exclusives - those still seem to be on track for 8/14. From one of those SW sites that I believe I'm forbidden from linking to: “Hope you’re having a great weekend! We wanted to reach out to clarify that the availability date for the Hasbro Star Wars SDCC exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop has changed to September.”
  20. ...and now Thor / Gladiator Hulk is up: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=118951856
  21. I usually only post sightings and hauls, but darned if this wasn't a great showing! Medusa & Black Bolt: Not a fan of the screaming expression on BB but I sold my SDCC Galactus Engine box set when I temporarily got out of collecting ML in 2015 (which I regret!) so I'm excited to get a second chance at these. Maybe Hasbro will pack in a normal closed mouth head as well. Defenders Box Set: Yes! All look good, and I'm especially excited for another shot at Luke cage as I never got the Thunderbolts set. Hydra Soldiers: I sold the Mandroid wave in 2015 along with my two Hydra soldiers so I'm glad to get Hydra forces again. Lizard: Looks awesome! Mysterio: Another figure I really wanted! Deathlock: Another great looking figure! Namor: The Namor I grew up with didn't live in WIlliamsburg Brooklyn or Seattle, so I may have to buy one of the two dozen Namors sitting in the multiple Walgreens near me to swap out the bearded head for the classic version. Mr Fantastic: Was worried the stretch effects would look silly, but they look Fantastic! (sorry) X-23 & Apocalypse: Not liking X-23 as much as I want to, but Apocalypse has me super X-cited for the wave! (sorry again) And although I gave up keeping stuff MOC/MISB a long time ago, I may get the vintage figures if I can find proper cases for them. I have my Star Wars vintage 6" figures still packed in the case waiting to find good clam shells. All in all I'm more excited about these reveals than I remember the last few years. Can't wait to see what BAFs we'll get besides Lizard and Apocalypse...
  22. Haven't been collecting 3 3/4" for a while so not sure if These have popped up elsewhere, but TRU put the Enchantress & Executioner 2-pack up for order this morning: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=118951546
  23. Forbidden Planet in NYC has at least two cases of the Marvel Knights wave on the shelf and they look great but I passed at $24.99 each. Will wait for HTS...
  24. Well, I'm out. Good that they're announcing the day for the second year in a row, but I'll be on vacation from that Saturday thru Wednesday with no access to reliable internet or computer. I thought with three full weeks between the con and vacation I'd definitely have time for a shot at the initial release and maybe even a restock :-/
  25. I don't stalk the TRU website often, but I think I've seen items go up between 7:00 AM & 7:30 AM EST. No clue if that will hold true for the SDCC stuff this Thursday though. For example HTS usually tends to put up new listings between 11:00 PM & 12:00 AM EST, but they do their SDCC release at random times every year. Good luck!
