  1. $40 for that Emma Frost is actually not bad considering what some are paying, but I respect where you're coming from...
  2. I remembered a 6th Target and checked it this morning. (YES, I have 6 Targets with 10 miles of my house. Unreal.) And the 6th was the jackpot. Looks like they put out a whole case and I was first. Black Knight, Omega Red, and Aurora are sitting on my shelf. I also grabbed a gray Hulk. I remember living in Los Angeles in the Valley I easily had at least 3 Targets in a 5 mile radius....pushing out to 10 miles would have probably put me at about 5-6 Targets...Only about 2 Walmarts though....
  3. Damn, I need to find mine... The old Toy Biz Wendigo goes great with this line too...I'll post pictures when I get home
  4. It's already confirmed that BBTS is getting Aurora as well. Northstar will probably just come later. I'm thinking he'll be in the retail boxes...check you local Targets...
  5. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=HAS23190&mode=retail No pictures of the new figures but they are mentioned in the case breakdown...
  6. Seriously this came out of nowhere. I ordered one case, we'll see the Northstar/Aurora situation when it gets here in a week CA to NY. I'll leave my BBTS preorders alone for the moment. Well, my BBTS preorder came in. Most likely the same case as Entertainment Earth. It probably won't be shipped until next week so we'll see then...
  7. ..... Dammit. Here I thought it was an Amazon exclusive set. We all did since that came straight from Hasbro's mouth at comic-con. Anyone else starting to get a ToyGuru vibe from Stall and Co? Okay, I thought I was crazy. I did think that was a Amazon exclusive which is why we were all scrambling to get it. Looks like it will be $20 or less by Christmas now. So I talked crap about Target earlier...but I just walked into my Target and came out with a Dagger and A-Bomb...should be interesting to see what will be more prevalent...Cloak and Abomination (2 each per case but seemingly limited run) or Dagger and A-Bomb (one per case, but the only wave of the two I have actually seen at retail). Hasbro, please don't dick us around with the Aurora/Northstar cases.
  8. What kills me about my Targets around the area is that they only put out one box of product at a time. Now thinking back to the last couple of waves, about 4-6 figures will go almost right away. So out of a box of 12, you may see only 6 of those when you go. Spread out across 3 pegs, it looks pretty anemic. The eternal question: you put out at least 3 boxes of every other product (Iron Man 3 figures, Star Wars, etc.) why are they only putting out only one box at a time? Then you have to deal with Target employees who may or may not be a dick about it to go in the back and look for another box...it's all kind of tedious which is why I began ordering cases online in the first place. I get the figures I want and either trade off or sell the figures that I don't need. A little extra work, but it works out a little better in the end.
  9. Most likely at LCS for the most part...I doubt very many major retailers will get them. Considering, $20 a figure is not bad (if you buy the case). Keep the ones you want and then sell or trade the ones you don't. But I understand your dilemma. HTS may get them, but Previews is paying for Exclusivity, so until that runs out (if ever) it may not show up on their site.
  10. Seriously, if Hasbro made those Iron Man 3 figures as good as the Thor Dark World figures (or Avengers Assemble, or Iron Man 2), I would have bought one of each. I looked at them closely last night...even if they didn't lack articulation, which they do, they just look extremely cheap. Then I went down the aisle and picked up one of each Thor Dark World figure. Watch those figures stay semi-scarce. One case of those were out compared to umpteenth cases of Assemblers and cheapies (the 5 POA POS's). One or two figures were gone and with me picking up 5 figures, that left only about 5 or 6 on the peg. To me, Hasbro is not only screwing collectors, but their "target audience", the kids
  11. I would buy one, but I've never ordered from that site and I don't want to learn how to order from them. This just means they'll start popping up soon on ebay from Chinese sellers anyway. I'll wait til then.Yeah I cannot read it. It's selling for 78 something. Crap I think I bought it accidentally? That bill might suck. 78 Yuan is like $13. Funny that A-Bomb is selling for almost $30 even in China...Hasbro makes me sick with these variants and their limited availability....
  12. And to add to that, my GI Joe Retaliation Wave 4 figures came in too w/ Jinx and Blind Master...again, another case with just two figures I care about....collecting sucks sometimes.
  13. I'm hoping one of yall find out before I finalize my payment....I'm guessing it does. It's sad that we either pay $50 a figure on eBay or have to buy a case just to get two figures.
  14. Yep, I jumped on to say the same thing, the Wave 22 hit my Target as well. All of the new figures were gone, but they did a new Captain America (which is an easy pass) and a Nova figure (which I didn't need). I still need to open up my Avengers Assemble figures, so I'm good for a while...
  15. Yeah they would have, but Boomerang is set for a single release... They could have maybe put a Troll figure in there since they feature her on the back of the newest wave of 3.75" MU. And I would like a Mr. Hyde or even a Centurius (REAL longshot). I would think maybe the less obscure groups you mention (outside of the Inhumans) and maybe something that is more mainstream but maybe would not make it in single packs. Like the New Mutants. Or Avengers Academy. Something along those lines. Something for Marvel fans and collectors, but wouldn't be shunned by them. It's bad enough when I listen to Podcasts and read reviews with people asking who the hell is Judith Chambers. We all know her as Satana, and even then, I wonder if people who don't read the book would even know her. I remember her and a lot of obscure characters from back in the day (heck, I even read Howard the Duck in which I think she turned up once or twice). But more thinking outside the box is what is needed at Hasbro.
  16. Mine just got delivered! Can't wait to get home and check them out... Any idea where or Wave 22 is? Seems like everyone has them except BBTS...
  17. Good. Hopefully that means my Wave 23 preorder and Joe stuff will be ready to ship soon. I've been waiting since Thursday for them to ship my Pile of Loot. I won't tell you how much is in it, but let me say that I've been compiling it since Feb. 1.... Finally got a shipment notification from BBTS. Will see my shipment on Friday. Can't wait for my GI Joe and Legends to come in...

  19. Has anyone seen the GI Joe new wave in stores? After the whole missing Iron Man 2 and Thor waves, I decided to get the case from BBTS...I really like that Hasbro varied the hell out of that wave...not a duplicate in the box! Still waiting for them to get that wave 22...but my Marvel Legends and Star Wars is ready to send!
  20. PREVIEWS is the catalog that most Comic and specialty shops order from, so most likely you will only see that product in those shops or online retailers like BigBadToyStore and EntertainmentEarth. I don't go to my local comic shop often enough so I'm ordering my figures from BBTS.
  21. The 5 poa figs? Saw them at Target tonight. ALMOST got Thor just cuz. I assume he meant the fully articulated line.. wave 1 has Cap, IM, Falcon, Hulk, Black Widow, and Red Skull I think. but I had not heard of anyone seeing the 5poa line yet either.. I might get that Thor if his head sculpt is any good. I haven't even seen the Wolverine figures at Target yet.. I want the Logan Haven't seen them at stores, but it looks like Amok Time got them in: http://www.amoktime.com/hasa18160004.html
  22. Happy Birthday Clam! Boba Fett ain't all that...that Thunderbolts set is what's up!
  23. BBTS has the new wave available now and is shipping those who pre-ordered. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/search.aspx?search=2013%20marvel%20legends%2002
  24. That happened to me. I learned later that this happened to most people who were signed in at the time. The solution was to be log out then back on. I lost Fett this way...but on the plus side, I don't think I really needed that Fett that much anyhow...I'm only a lukewarm Star Wars collector but I'm a pretty complete Marvel Universe (and most Marvel Legends) collector.
  25. Now that I'm getting quite a few Thunderbolt figures, I would love a Mr. Hyde BAF to go with the rest of the set.
