  1. I looked back through my display last night and didn't really see any that stood out to me. For the most part they blend in and are inconsequential to the figure with the exception of my Vintage Spidey.
  2. ToyBiz Punisher series 7 maybe? I got super lucky and found him at my local Wal-Mart. Ended up grabbing Ultimate Cap and numerous others after that. Punisher still sits at my desk at work though. Traveled with me to college and all over the place. Probably still one of my top 5 favorite figures of all time.
  3. It will be interesting to see if these pop back up in stores in a couple of months. I feel like the stock had to exist for them to allow so many pre-orders. I am also surprised at how well this one sold considering it is basically $40 for the Corvis Glave with a re-packaged Loki.
  4. Good call! I love that Pulse allows you to cancel. I feel like the best bet is to go ahead and get the preorder with them since it is likely they will get it in first and at retail price, then if they don't you cancel and aren't out any money.
  5. Did I miss that pose in the trailer somewhere for Ronin? All of the photos I see of him are in that pose?
  6. Never had an issue with pre-ordering legends through them, but I had all kinds of issues with Pops over the years with Wal-Mart. It seems like patience is key with these things and big box retailers now. It's almost as if it is better to wait until they are in stock before ordering which is a tough game to play.
  7. I asked them to look in the back. I gave them the DCPI and asked if they could see if they had more in the back since the ones from the assortment I was looking for were not on the shelf. I knew that they had some new ones in stock though because I called before I went and asked how recently they had received that DCPI (April 6th).
  8. Only the bubblegum head's glasses are removable and for some reason they gave me an extra pair of them in the package? The gum and her expression are the only real differences. I will post some pics later today of the differences for you. I am actually torn as to which head to display her with. Both of them look really good, though I understand the hairstyle complaint.
  9. I think a different Daredevil attire would be an easy cash in for Hasbro. We have three different Deadpools in this scale, why not another DD since he was an exclusive?
  10. I highly doubt that we won’t see one revealed before the end of the year.
  11. I like the idea (I am also on Reddit and the upvote/downvote system is okay) but I would be worried that it could create sort of a mob mentality. I’ve seen it in some subreddits and in Facebook groups where it can actually discourage productive conversation because people are afraid to be downvoted into oblivion.
  12. I know I’m going to end up buying this figure eventually. The translucent cooor is so cool and I am a sucker for that buck.
  13. Today was pretty nuts. I left work a little early planning on going to target on the way home but decided to call one that was pretty far out of the way (while I was driving to the target closer) first to see if they had the Caliban wave in stock. The store that was out of the way was the only one I didn’t call on Sunday to check stock and I thought “it can’t hurt”. Earlier in the day I had checked the DCPI for the Game of Thrones Oreos to see if any were in my area and as it turned out the only store that did have some was the one that was out of the way. While I was on hold waiting for the toy department manager to let me know if they had any x-men legends in stock, I made the decision to just go to the store that was out of the way anyway and snag the GOT Oreos. The toy department manager comes back and says “yeah we have x-men legends in stock”. As I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, that doesn’t mean much in Targetlandia. So I asked “how recently did you receive these?” He says “April 6th”. I immediately feel the adrenaline rush. Getting to the store was the longest 15 minute drive ever (minus driving the wife to the hospital when she was in labor twice). I sprint/walk to the toy aisle only to be met with Polaris and Dazzler. So either I missed them, or they were in the back. I crossed my fingers and looked for the nearest employee with a device that would make eye contact. Found a nice guy at electronics talking to another employee and asked him. His device showed “some in the back”. He leaves for a bit, I prepare myself for a major let down. He comes walking out of the back with a box on his shoulder and says “found a whole case. Not sure if these are the ones you want but we can take a look”. I almost passed out when he put the box down in front of me. Grabbed all but a Gambit, had enough wherewithal to grab the Oreos, and then hit the self checkout. Today was hands down one of my best days hunting ever. I love this hobby so much. Bonus updated X-Shelfie!
  14. Nice! Back before the TRU stores went extinct in the US I stumbled across Cyke and Colossus from that wave in one stop. Both of those figures are still two of my favorites. Thanks for the story!
  15. Back when I was collecting Pops, one of the chrome Batman’s dropped and some people paid with their PayPal accounts at Barnes and Noble for them. There was a similar payment processing issue that occurred and people’s paypal accounts were drained. If I remember correctly, the ones that paid with a card had to call their banks and tell them to stop payment on any future transactions of that amount from B&N. Maybe that is a route to take?
  16. I get the love, but I honestly don’t have room for her on my shelf. That, and I stick (relatively) close to the 90s animated series characters. She is a great figure, just not one I need really. Didn’t make sense not to pick her up for the BAF piece though considering I was already buying six of the seven figures anyway.
  17. He’s a deeper cut character than what Select usually tackles I feel like. It’s exciting that we got one, but I think you are right that we won’t get another one for quite a while.
  18. M.A.S.K.!!! Out of all of the nostalgic reinventions that have popped up recently I can’t believe this has not been done.
  19. Here are some loose shots! I didn’t take Blink out of the package because I ended up selling her in the package minus the BAF on eBay. I just wasn’t interested in hanging onto her. The whole wave is amazing but Gambit, Beast, and Jubilee are the major standouts as expected. With that said the Weapon X is by far my favorite from the wave (obvious, I know). Gambit is a whole new torso and Jubilee is pretty much an entirely new figure. Skullbuster is a straight repaint with a new jacket. All the way to the spot for the flag and hole in the chest for a tube on the torso. Caliban is a figure I had no desire for at all, but after putting him together, he is fantastic. He will be a cool sidekick for my Apocalypse BAF.
  20. The Russo’s said that the only two movies you really need to watch before Endgame are Infinity War and Civil War. Since I’ve seen them all pretty recently (marathon before Infinity War) I’ll probably take the Russos’ advice.
  21. I don’t ever really pay attention to them. I honestly didn’t even notice that you can’t see them on the multiverse figures until I just read it really. I also only own the Vintage Spidey and Black suit Spidey so maybe it’s just not something that is super prevalent in the x-characters (the colors not matching up I mean).
