  1. Oh, and I found the entire first Infinity wave at a Walmart in Kentucky. I only picked up King Cobra and Proxima, because I already have Taskmaster and I can't stomach buying another MCU Cap, IM, or Spidey.
  2. Wait a second, Hasbro referred to this newest X-Men wave as the "strongest wave ever?" I must have pushed that out of my head because I knew it couldn't be true. It seems to me that Hasbro knows that we want certain characters in specific costumes, so they know they need to space them out to keep us hooked. Plus, I'm sure they're first utilizing as many existing molds as possible, so they're keeping costs down at the same time, which I imagine also ensures longevity of the line. But then I question why we don't have a new Xavier yet, considering they are far from shy about reusing that suited buck. When all is said and done, despite what I think is clear logic from their point of view, I still find a lot of it rather baffling in many ways. I really don't give a Jackal's furry green butt about Gladiator, and I've been to enough punk shows in my time that one mohawk per wave is more than plenty, so at least there are two figures from that wave I know I can attempt to resell.

    Since TRU is now closing everything

    I hear ya. I don't know how they got such a good reputation with their prices. I always manage to find most things at a better price with other etailers. Most of the times it's much cheaper at Dorkside or even EE. I guess advertising really works. Once upon a time BBTS had better prices than, as far as I could tell, any other major etailers; however, this was in 2007, 08, 09. I've always figured they built their reputation from that and then ran with it.

    What if prices go up?

    When it comes to action figures, I'm so over the 3.75-4" scale. I retain my entire vintage (82-94) GI Joe collection, but that's it for me.

    Cull Obsidian (Black Dwarf) BAF of Wave 2

    It's that new facial scan tech they've been using that started with (I think) the first or second GotG2 wave. It worked pretty well for those, but then it got weird a blurry looking for the Thor and Netflix waves. Everyone looks sick or like they're wearing too much eye shadow.

    Team Nimrod or Team Strong Guy

    That sounds like a challenge to me.

    Team Nimrod or Team Strong Guy

    Team Strong Guy for sure.

    Cull Obsidian (Black Dwarf) BAF of Wave 2

    I know that they arent going to be using the name Black Dwarf in the movie. This doesn't surprise me in the least.
  9. I took this description from my Youtube video. I've added this to my current Black History Month "Figs of Color" Playlist. I can change that here since it's not relevant. If you're pointing out that the character is African American because the review is part of a Black History Month theme, then I would say that the character's race is in fact relevant, but that's just my opinion.

    Venom Wave

    To touch on the talk about this film being set in the greater MCU, it was reported on 2/4/18 that the CEO of Sony stepped down and is being replaced, which has led to speculation that the entertainment section of the company may be sold; that would include Spider-Man, Ghostbusters, and other franchises. If this is true and happens, I imagine Disney will probably buy Spider-Man and Venom, and whatever else. http://www.bgr.in/news/sony-might-sell-off-tv-film-business-including-spider-man-ghostbusters-report/
  11. That Thanos is about as exciting as a saltine cracker.

    Most Wanted Comic Figures?

    I'm going to go vanilla here and say that I would really like to see an updated Toad. That Toybiz one is a joke, and I want to be one character closer to finishing up my Brotherhood. Although, I would sell my best friend's oldest child in exchange for a hover chair Xavier, a Jim Lee era Magneto with a mullet, Sauron, or hell, Commando.
  13. TRU could definitley benefit from scaling their "adult collector" section back to just NECA, Diamond Select, Funko, and McFarlane Toys. I agree, there's just too much random stuff littering their shelves. Most TRUs I visit are a wreck.

    New Walgreens exclusive rumor

    Lol. Ya, the idea that any one of the current cash cows is being ruled out to appear in a vehicles wave is laughable. Deadpool may not, but he's got as much a possibility as any of the other marquee characters. I saw the Spider cycle coming a mile away & it will happen. When it does, the DP on a scooter will not seem so far fetched in retrospect. Hell I wouldn't even rule out, or be all that opposed if the did a "Tongue in Cheek" (or serious, for that matter) Hulk cycle a' la the Toybiz Bump'n'Go toys from the early 2000's. Just get me a damn updated hulk on the Ragnarok Hulk buck. My money's just waiting to be spent. Now that I think about it, just include any random bike that any of the other figures would fit on. Just get it done. As far as future Dedpools? The possibilities are endless. I know we don't wanna see them all but in order for the line to continue we're gonna have to come to terms with the fact that every variation is being thoroughly weighed. Can't have any more Deadpool waves without Deadpool, after all. For this, I'm still somewhat convinced (and hopeful) that the upcoming DP wave will include Warpath rather than X-Force DP. I would think they're saving him to anchor the next wave. Then all they'll have left as headliners are X-Men DP, Movie DP (face it, it's coming), battle damaged DP, Weapon X DP, Venompool (not back in black), boxer shorts DP, Leifield DP (sorry, puked a little), Hulked DP, Secret Wars DP (with alternate head & broken shield) etc....etc. Believe me, he's far from being fully exploited Isn't the new DP we are getting in his first wave basically the Leifield DP (costume wise), or do you mean a figure sculpted to look like Leifield's..."style" of drawing? Hopefully not his style of drawing, DP wouldn't have any feet! Haha! It could come with interchangeable nubs.
