  1. Wow, now that's something....that I won't be picking up. :) Great for kids though.
  2. Huge thanks to Robb for 6" MM Spider-Man and movie Hawkeye. Walmarts aren't always easy to find in my neck of the woods and both figures are awesome. Thanks man!
  3. My LCS in NYC put out wave 3 today and it was the same assortment everyone else is starting to see at retail. No Moonstar, FF Doom, Blade or regular Deadpool yet.
  4. Picked up a handful of Shulkies today for anyone still needing one. Might be able to get some more Punishers and Ghost Riders. TRU has all the Marvel figures (MU, Avengers, etc.) at buy-two-get-one-free at the Times Square location - don't know if this has been reported yet.
  5. I agree - I think he looks pretty cool! Hopefully you'll find he was worth it once he arrives. I've bought a couple loose figures from a particular seller in China that showed up with gunk in the joints, scratches that weren't in the listing picture, etc. so I won't be buying from that person again. I'm sure you'll have better luck. :)
  6. Didn't Forge go crazy/bad back in an AXM story a short while ago? I can't quite remember the details... I will be checking this one out, maybe Tbolts as well. I'll be passing on Hunger Royale Arena. Just because it worked for cinema doesn't make me want to see young Marvel characters that I actually like kill each other.
  7. Looks like DP will be gone from XF by this point. I'm glad you guys seem to be excited by this as a lot of fans on other boards are steaming mad. :)
  8. And I was one of those collectors! LOL From what I picked up today that's not already promised I have one Punisher for sale (cost + shipping) or trade. No Bagheads today, which disappointed me a little bit but really disappointed the scalper who got there right before me - he was bitching to himself as he walked away. Sometimes it's the little things... Anyway, PM me - first come first serve.
  9. Tried TRU again this morning. Five minutes after opening, the new case or two they put out had already been cleared of Scarlet Witches; the rat-faced scalper who is there every morning with a big bag full of toys (Santa he ain't) walked by so I'm guessing it was him. I just missed the single Kang he left behind being picked up by yet another scalper I frequently see there. There were a couple FF SMs and Shulkies and a bunch of Punishers left as well as many of the repacks. So frustrating, and I was mainly there to try to score some Bagheads for other board members...
  10. As a follow-up to this, I hit TRU as they opened today to return something and swung by the MU section. Another few cases of W19 had been put out and all the Scarlet Witches were already gone. One guy was standing there with two in his hand and another who I see there a lot and assume is a scalper had a bag full of toys, so I'm guessing that's where the rest were. Also, they had issues ringing up W19 at the register so that seems to go along with others' experiences as well.
  11. Dime a dozen at my TRU....well, not literally, but there's scads of them. :/
  12. Hit TRU at lunch today and got my first sighting of W19 in the wild. They put it out over the weekend so of course there were no Kangs or SWs to be found. This bucks the recent trend in the area of comic shops getting cases before retail. I picked up FF SM and a replacement Punisher for one I bought online that had mediocre paint apps. It seems crazy that my previously-purchased Kang and SW are virtually perfect while the Spider-Mans, She-Hulks and Punishers I saw today all had paint issues, many of them quite noticeable. Suppose I just got lucky with those two... Also the shading on Spider-Man just makes him look dirty instead of shadowed. His promo pic looks so much better than the finished product.
  13. How many black widows qualifies as enough to choke on? At least six of both figures just on the peg fronts plus a handful more behind. I've seen 1-2 at the same time on the rare occasion but today's sighting was crazy.
  14. Wave 18 finally hit TRU big time with a dozen or so full pegs. Same thing everyone else has been seeing at big retail: PP Spider-Man & right-side-up Beast. Lots of Legends as well and enough Avengers Black Widows & Hawkeyes to choke on. You gotta love how some of this stuff shows up in bulk after all the trouble you've already gone through to get it...
  15. My Target had over 15 Gladiators...looks like returns to me. Yeah, my TRU had wave 18 for about three seconds before reverting to its permanent collection of two dozen Gladiators.
  16. Got you covered, Chris. Hah - I went to my TRU at lunch, saw one of these and remembering this post picked it up. Oh well - Returnsville tomorrow. :)
  17. Lucky you! I just got my Punisher in the mail and the paint on the gloves looks like the remnants of a second century fresco. It's supposed to have that shadow effect they try from time to time but just looks junky to me.
  18. A small batch of wave 18 hit TRU over the weekend but no replenishment today. Judging from the debris Kraven and Spider-Man (PP) will be the pegwarmers this time around. Also saw the Chitauri w/chariots for the first time. Lots of Black Widows and Hawkeyes in the Avengers section.
  19. I swung thru around 10:15 and they had one Hulk/Wolvie but I knew it wouldn't last long. MU has been Gladiator-only for a week now and none of them (rightfully so at this point) are moving. I tried asking an employee when they might be restocking but as usual they know nothing...
  20. Picked up wave 18 (minus regular Spider-Man) at my LCS. They only got the Miles Morales variant of SM. Hopefully this means TRU and other retailers will be receiving the wave in the next few days.
  21. However Amoktime gets their supply is different from retail. At least in the last year or so, NYC is always at least a month behind Asia and several weeks later than the West Coast in getting new waves of anything. We routinely curse at and salivate over other people's haul pics. I've sweated through this nasty summer combing the city for any scent of the new waves - regular retail, discount, mom & pops, Chinatown - and found nothing. Damn you MU - I want my life back!
  22. Except maybe in some very unique cases, wave 18 has not yet hit the NYC area.
