  1. If anyone happens across an extra Xavier, or two, or five - I would love to trade or buy! I've got an extra A-Bomb, Cloak, Abomnation among other things.
  2. Got back early this morning from 6 days in Las Vegas and had some great luck... on toys, not gambling(I was up $.25!) Also thanks if you voted for me in the costume contest, I took 3rd place for the MOE set. I was hoping to do better but it wasn't going to happen when some of the competition was jumping from 2 to 20+ votes in less than 4 hours.... not that I'm saying they were up to anything fishy. Before I go with my haul here's a shot of some of our group on Halloween in costume: We had someone take our picture and then mayhem broke out. TONS of people kept coming up wanting to take pictures with us. We were getting dirty looks from lots of the street performers that usually charge a buck a picture. We had a funny interaction with some dudes dressed as the Avengers that I'm kicking myself for not getting pictures with. Great times. First toy haul was at the fashion mall Disney Store that just opened. They had the full case of Thor 2 figures so I grabbed the Dark Elf. We hit the south outlet mall and they had several Cloaks and Abominations. I thought about grabbing some in case that anyone was looking but all of the cards were really beat up and would still have to survive the plane ride home, sorry. I did grab an ML Ultron for $10. The vintage toy store downtown had lots of older random MU figures carded but the prices were a bit high so I passed. I hit up a Target hoping for the new wave but just the leftovers of the A-Bomb wave with the good stuff missing. We were just about to leave and I noticed this: What are the odds it's the one figure from that case that I still need? SCORE! Great trip and I ended up with 3 more toys than I expected. Quick Q, I was keeping up with the site on bus rides and whatnot - bummed about the 3 packs but have we heard when any new info for the new line is coming?
  3. Last few before I head out of town - bolstering the ranks of my different X-Teams: Bishop: Forge: 1st Class Beast: If you like any of them maybe do me a favor and vote for me(Astonishing Cyclops) in the Halloween costume contest here: http://forums.marvelousnews.com/index.php?showtopic=2067020 I'm the only person that actually posts here left in the contest - don't let the poachers steal the prizes!!! Please? :)
  4. It could mean they're slow on the draw..... it also could mean that there's an issue with shipping and the order has been lost or didn't arrive at UPS properly. I'd call BBTS's Customer Service line and see if they have any info. On an unrelated note - I'm the only one that actually posts here in the finals of the Halloween costume contest. Let's keep that prize in the family! Vote #15 Cyclops! http://forums.marvelousnews.com/index.php?showtopic=2067020
  5. Thanks for the compliments guys it means a lot. I have a TON of WIPs right now so I'm hoping to finish a few this weekend before I head out on vacation. Here's the two I knocked out this week though: Vanisher: With him done and Nightcrawler on the way all I need is to get Wolfsbane going and I'll have the full team. J. Jonah Jameson: As soon as I finished him I found, online, a better head with the mouth open and brow furrowed, looking like he's screaming about a deadline. I'll probably end up re-doing this one sometime but I'm happy for now.
  6. if you're looking to sell or trade that Dagger I'd be happy to help you out.
  7. I REALLY hope that doesn't mean anything - I have the BBTS case coming. I already have customs of the twins for my Alpha Flight but I could use an extra Northstar to put on my X-Men shelf. I think i could live a while without the Aurora, but if I get her I'll probably want to drop money on Northstar to get it over with.
  8. Entertainmentearth has the last wave up for sale. I really was expecting this to not ship for another month at least.
  9. Nice! TRU? Has anyone hit up a Disney store lately? I'm going fairly close to one today and was wondering what they were stocking for MU lately.
  10. PM sent about that extra Dagger. If you order from HTS it should end up being Cloak - they've been pretty good about properly listing variants and they don't have anything else available from the Dagger/Abomb case up yet.
  11. ...and a post filled with scoundrels and ladies. Batroc Whirlwind - still have to do a little touch up work. Squirrel Girl Polaris Aunt May!
  12. I have been lazy about posting some finished stuff. Advice as always welcome, enjoy! Modern(ish) X-Men Magik Namor Dr. Nemesis Cyclops Now Magneto Now
  13. Not many have popped up at retail but a few have been sighted at TRU.
  14. Kohls is looking to score big markups on moms that are desperately XMas shopping filler junk for the kids while getting new shoes and blouses and whatever else broads like. Look at the prices on anything non-clothing in there this time of year. WAY overpriced. AWESOMESAUCE! Cloak? Not Dagger? People who dropped $50 on Baghead are looking at $25 as a good deal. They're one per case and I only have two Targets in my town. That means max 2 collectors/ebayers are going to score them in my area. I'm hitting Target every other day but who knows if someone else will stumble in 5 minutes before me.
  15. Quick question - I've been seeing the recent rev case with Rhino/Thanos all over the place, but I never saw the Electra/Mysterio cases anywhere in store. I know a few people saw them at TRU, but where there any Target/Walmart sightings on those at all?
  16. I got my BBTS case in today and got the 2 Abominations and 2 Cloaks, so those are up for trade if anyone has extra Dagger and ABomb. Also have the Iron Man, new Cap, and XForce Wolverine from the case if anyone's looking. Hurry on the Wolverine, though, he's a hot seller!
  17. My TRU did a really halfassed reset and now Marvel Universe stuff is all over the aisle. The single carded are on one peg mixed in with all of the Ironman 3 stuff, there's some 2 packs halfway down the aisle with the LUB figures beneath. The other side of the aisle has the 3 packs(10+ Guardians of the Galaxy) and a few other 2 packs. I've noticed nothing new since the Angel wave at all and no new Gi Joes since a little longer. I hate complaining about the line since it's a hobby - so it's supposed to be fun and all, but it's frustrating living in the 4th biggest market in the state and not one of the 11 stores(TRU, 5 Meijer, 3 Walmarts, 2 Targets) that carry MU have gotten the Elektra wave at all. Only Meijers and TRU got 1 each of the Angel wave and the Blaastaar wave was only at a few of the Meijer. If I was a casual collector I would have bailed so much on the line by now. Oh well, my BBTS case is showing up in the morning so I'll be a happy camper tomorrow.
  18. I think he's referring to Protector. I know very little about Protector but I think he's awesome sauce since I really dug Dark Avengers and he's in that for a hot minute.
  19. I grabbed an extra Nova the other day, anyone here need it? It's the one from the Herc wave with the comic shot included.
  20. Lucky lunch break - I hit up TRU and found the new Avengers Assemble figures. I walked by twice without even noticing them since the Cap and Iron Man were out front. I assumed they were the All-star line. I grabbed Hulk, BW, Falcon, and Skull. I was the first one to get to them it seemed but some other guy came in the aisle right after me and looked through all of the Marvel stuff. He was looking at them as I left. I've met my competition, would it have been weird to start a conversation up?
  21. That 2.5 shows shipping late October, maybe another rev case?
  22. sound like the tru in college point,Queens NY is that the correct? No, Kalamazoo, MI. I don't think they've done a remodel here since the mid 90s but a lot of new businesses popped up in the plaza with it so hopefully it's getting a fresh coat of paint.
  23. Went on a hunt today and nothing new for MU anywhere in my area. Comic shop had the new Legends for $25 but that was it. I noticed last Monday that Target had gotten rid of the empty MU pegs that they set out the week before in the reset. They were both back, and still empty today. My TRU is doing some major reset/remodel right now and their setup now makes you go through a maze to get into the store. Friendly clerk said that they have a huge truck coming in tomorrow so I'll swing through on lunch. Also they had a sweet Heisenberg Breaking Bad figure that I didn't grab today and regretted right away that I can pick up.
