  1. Sorry for the camera pic

    I just picked a few at random. We have John Stewart from DC Universe Classics, Iron Patriot from Iron Man 3 Legends, Simon Baz Green Lantern from DC Collectibles, and Iron Man Mark VI from Marvel Select. I think maybe the closest match to Marvel Legends would be DC Universe Classics...they both are pretty articulated. DC Collectibles is close, just not as articulated.

  2.  

     

    My HTS ordered finally shipped. Grim Reaper and Hyperion on the way.

     

    On a side note I have a DC Multiuniverse Bane that is packaged on a Mr Freeze card. I searched google and could find nothing about it. Anybody ever ran into them before. Trying to figure out how rare this is.

    I've seen several people in other forums mention finding DCM figures on the wrong cards. Azrael on Mr. Freeze's card and vice versa seem to be most common.

     

    So I've been a collector for quite some time and back in the day a misprinted package was like a big find, sort of like an unintentional variant. It was especially big with Baseball and Basketball cards. Is that not the case now? I'm not finding anything on value.

     

     

    I kind of remembering it being a big deal but I don't think notsomuch these days. I was one of the ones who ordered the figures from Amazon and received a Mr. Freeze on an Azrael card. I kept it, but don't find so much value in it as it is so easy nowadays for people to "fake" an unintentional variant. Even if I know mine is genuine.

  3. I'm just shocked that we have gotten 3 out of the 4 members of the Wrecking Crew, and we very likely will not get the 4th. It's so frustrating.

     

    I wouldn't say that. They did the same thing for the longest time in the Marvel Universe 3.75" line. Three of them (Bulldozer, Thunderball, Piledriver) came out in the comic packs and we all had to wait a little bit until they released Wrecker in a single pack. I think Bulldozer will eventually be released, just don't know when or how...

  4. Brain : They will release something they already released with a new paintjob along with one or more of the "missing" figures.

     

    Marvel Knights : Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Moon Knight, Blade. (2 birds with 1 stone)

    X-men (insert whatever name will make the set make sense) : Rogue, Jubilee, White Phoenix, Moonstar, FA Storm (5 figures they made and never released)

    Phoenix 5 - Cyclops, Emma, Colossus, Magik, Namor

     

    Heart : There are so many!

    Mutant X : Fallen, Brute, Ice-Man, Goblin Queen, Havok, Bloodstorm

    Alpha Flight : Vindicator, Northstar, Aurora, Snowbird, Shaman

    Young Avengers : Wiccan, Hulkling, Kid Loki, Kate Bishop, Marvel Boy

     

    I don't like the guessing game (sorry, it's just me, I like to be pleasantly surprised), but if I were to play, I would have guessed either the Women of X-Men or the Phoenix 5, both mentioned by thedevilsdue06...

     

    I think the Phoenix 5 would be a set that would be perfectly unique for a Comic Con, but would sit around if released at retail.

  5. Hasbro would make life a lot more fun if they stopped with the 1 per case figures.

     

    I don't understand why Hasbro can't be like Playmates. Those guys can keep a third of an aisle full of TMNT action figures and you can most likely find what you want in one or two stops. These are being constantly restocked too.

     

    Marvel is a bigger franchise than TMNT. They really need to market themselves better. Put a commercial or two out...at least on Youtube or something. Drum up some interest.

  6.  

    Ty stitch. I knew we hadn't got him from MU but hadn't kept up with the Avengers line at all. Also that Hulk is kinda cool. I was anti-MN hulk at first but it's grown on me.

    I always disagreed with giving Hulk armor but the look has grown on me.

     

     

    I never thought about the "armor" aspect of it...it was always the additional benefits that it gave Hulk. I saw it more as a "tech suit" or "tech accessories" more than armor...Sort of like a World War Hulk in reverse...

  7. @The MenacingOne, I've been calling her both. I'm usually two years or so behind on comics because I just grab trades here and there. Thanks for the tip, I'd been wondering what happened to Jessica Drew if Anya Corazon was the new Spider-Woman.

     

    I went back to Target tonight and I checked the computer on a whim and it turns out the missing Winter Soldiers were still in the stockroom. The girl in the toy dept was kind enough to pull one for me, so I now have a finished Mandroid. It's a pretty cool figure and I don't mind it being so huge compared to my Universe stuff.

     

    Yeah, I'm about a year behind in reading comics...just for clarification (not that anyone really cares) Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman is on the Avengers in her Red and Gold costume. Julia Carpenter, who was the Spider-Woman in the Black and White suit (and later went by Arachne) is now Madame Web. Anya Corazon now wears the Black and White and goes by Spider-Girl.

    @Jason - Man, you had me f'in laughing out loud at work with your comment...people think I'm crazy

  8. I just pre-ordered the Cap wave 2 from Entertainment Earth. $159.99 tax & shipping included. $20 a figure. I got tired of looking online every day for Black Widow and only seeing her for $70+ and only seeing Spider-Man figures when I look in stores. So...in a month or so I'll have an extra Winter Soldier, Red Skull, Baron Zemo and a couple extra Caps.

     

    Yeah, if you can afford it, I think this is the way to go. I figure if I find another one out in the wild, then I can have two Mandroids. If not, at least I'll have one. Shelf space is at a premium right now.

  9.  

    Not to call yall out or anything, but besides being off-topic, it's Spider-Girl, not Spider-Woman. I know it's a little thing and we all know what you're talking about, but to me it's like calling Superboy "Superman". Just saying...You know we're all Marvel fans, I just want you to be sure you know who you're buying.

    Thanks, I didn't know the difference. I collect the toys but don't read the comics.

     

     

    Well, that makes sense, and I can respect that. I guess I mistakenly assumed that people who collect the figures collect or read the comics as well, and I admit my ignorance on that part. Sometimes people just want to enjoy a nice action figure.

  10. Well, BBTS processed my order for the 2 new 5 poa Avengers figures (Don't judge me, I really wanted that blue/green Iron Man). Hopefully AI wave 1 will hit this week or next.

     

    We could never judge a fellow collector...much. But come on stitch, it is IRON MAN! Those things are going to be choking the pegs by the end of the summer...but I understand. I got all of the Iron Man Assemblers after they dropped down to $5. At $10, pretty ridiculous, but at $5, good enough to put in my own little "House Party" display.

  11.  

     

     

     

    I got them from Barnes and Noble. Currently the only place selling them aside from the second hand market. Drove 4 hours to find a store with them in stock.

    Thanks, got the Daenerys Targaryen this morning at my local B&N. They didn't have any of the others in stock, but she was the only one I wanted anyway.

    I'm shocked they even had that one. She's the one packed the most. though. followed by snow. the rest are all even assortments. I had one lady laugh for even asking if they had them. apparently they're selling like crazy.

     

    I was able to search for them online and check in store inventory. Most have been sold out, there were some others about 20 miles from me. What's the case breakdown?

     

    What mass retail's cases will be I am unsure of. B&N are getting them in on shippers that include them as well as pop vinyl. 4 tyrion, 4 white walker, 4 ned stark, 4 hound, 6 snow, 8 dany

     

     

    Hmmmmm, no wonder I was able to get a Jon Snow and Dany from online. I had a hound in the order, but they oversold and canceled that part of the order.

     

    Haven't opened them yet...B&N only had a 30 day exclusive on them. When are they going to start offering them at other retail?
