  1. Sadly, this is nothing new. Dry spells are just a fact of life in toy-hunting. If it makes you feel any better, Mysterio not withstanding, the Lizard wave has been easier to find in brick-n-mortar than any non-movie Spidey wave I've seen in a long time.
  2. More to the point, it's become a scalper exclusive. I paid $40 bucks for a Mysterio off Amazon (cause I'm a schmuck), and the Sp//der wave is almost that bad. The only etailers who don't pimp-slap you with a ridiculous mark-up are HTS, though their shipping is ridiculous and they NEVER have anything in stock, and Dorkside, but everything they have is in "preorder."
  3. I REALLY want to want this one, but I just can't justify all that green for a single figure.
  4. The only people who thought the first series was "lackluster" were dipsticks who were expecting Avengers: The Series. It was never meant to be that. That being said, yes, as good as the first season was, the show has gotten even better as time goes on. High points are the shows unique slant on Ghost Rider, Deathlok, Mr. Hyde, the Inhumans, Graviton, and a (sadly brief) recurring gig for Jamie Alexander from the Thor movies reprising her role as Sif. Of course, it's not all sunshine and roses. The first half of last season kind of left me cold. Without giving to much away, there was time travel and a lot of time spent in space to cash in on GOTG V.2. Not my favorite moments in the show,
  5. IDK about Cali or the East Coast, but here in Central Arkansas, I'm finding sweet fanny. Normally, I'd chalk it up to it still being fairly early in the release process, but I had similar luck with Infinity War and Black Panther before that. I can find Solo and Wrestler figures out the wazzoo, but anything else, I might as well be shopping for "! Love Trump" T-shirts.
  6. Mainly, I only want Colleen. May buy the set and just sell off the rest, especially with that Luke and Claire set coming soon. Then again, I may skip it altogether and roll the dice on those Danny and Colleen set rumors being true. I'll have to think about this bad-boy for a bit.
  7. Agreed. With distribution at an all-time low-point, scalping at an all-time high, and the worst scalpers being "legitimate etailers," the modern collector has enough to contend with without having to compete with shoplifters, repackagers, barcode switchers and whatever other ways steaming piles of human feces can find to make life difficult for honest people.
  8. Yeah, Iron Man and Cap are the figures I wish we had gotten a long time ago, but I'm gonna go on and address the elephant in the room. Why is Crossbones so tiny? Was he that small in the movies? It's especially bad if this Cap IS the original MCU CA mold, which was only an average sized figure to begin with. I mean next to that Cap, Crossbones looks more like a teenage cosplayer than the bad-@$$ I remember.
  9. Dropped into Walmart for popcorn and stumbled over the remnants of a Lizard case. Naturally, there was no Mysterio, but I did find Lasher (woohoo...). 6 down-1 to go. Still, at the very least, this means I've still got at least a shot of finding Mysty at retail. So win, win.
  10. I realize this may come as a shock, but things are pretty dead across the board around here. Target, Walmart, Walgreens, wherever. The occasional King Cobra, plenty of Kilmongers, a left-over Pink Panther or two, and a smattering of '90's Deadpools. You know, I'm no marketing genius, but with two hit movies released within the last 2 months, a third major motion picture release just around the corner, not to mention Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 hype burning up the internet you'd think Hasbro might take advantage and try and actually sell some of this stuff.
  11. No luck on the Lizard wave, but my local Wally-Worlds are getting in the Sasquatch and Cull Obsidian waves. Maybe the droughts finally broken.
  12. Two words: Hulk. . . Monster Truck. That's all I'm saying.
  13. I don't see Hasbro venturing to far from the motorcycle + rider formula, so I'd say Captain America is a foregone conclusion. Deadpool and a Vespa would probably be a safe bet to. Some version of Punisher with a bike is another strong possibility. Not expecting Prof. X at all, and certainly no Battle-Van. (But I could be wrong.) If I were to guess a dark-horse candidate it would probably be either a retool of modern Hawkeye with a sky-cycle or even a revisit of Spidey and his Spider-Cycle from the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon (or something similar to it.)

    Two things.....

    Lightly disagree. Say what you will, I think Cap in his Nomad rig is important enough to the story that his figure needed to come out when it did. As for IM, I agree I'd like to see the wing version, but just from the trailer alone there's also a "rocket-feet" version, an "unmasked" version, a "half-suit" version, and a "battle-damaged" version I'd also like to see in plastic. I guess the big problem with this being an all-encompassing "Adult Collector" line as opposed to a dedicated kiddie line is that for every character there's gonna be at least one "look" we won't get. I'm also 88% sure we'll be seeing Ebony Maw and Corvous Glaive.
  15. We obviously haven't been shopping at the same etailers
