  1. Today made up for the trouble. I dropped by my nearest Target (not the one from earlier) to see if they had any Origin Widows out. None on the isle, but a girl working there was nice enough to bring me one up from the back. Usually try not to bother the Target employees (I WAS a Target employee), but I really didn't feel like chasing Tasha around the city. So I asked, she was cool about it, everybody walked away happy.
  2. Dropped into Target this afternoon. They had a single Spymaster and at least 8 Deadly Origin Black Widows. Grabbed the Spymaster, sadly the Origin figures were street dated for the 29th. Not only could they not sell it to me, but as I was leaving, they were calling back to toys to have the rest pulled. C'iest la Vie.
  3. Reminds me of the dark ages before satellite TV. You would have ONE cable company solely covering a given area. End result? These companies could basically charge anything they wanted, and customer service was a joke. It also gave them a power base that took years to break. Sound familiar? Take a good look boys and girls, this is why monopolies are SUPPOSED to be illegal.
  4. I know, right? He LITERALLY just told them "You're on your own dudes, deal with it!" Kind of a stark contrast from Hasbro's announcement.
  5. Well, you're apparently more concerned about that than Diamond. Sadly, now that the government is broaching the possibility of offering bail-out money to injured businesses, you're probably gonna see a lot more companies like Diamond kicking employees and dependent retailers to the curb for a shot at Uncle Don's wallet. Kinda makes you proud to be an American doesn't it?
  6. True enough, but on the same token, no executive is EVER gonna send out a press release admitting the company has gone FUBAR. "Well, there's mass rioting at the factory, the board of directors just bought matching seppuku daggers and I'm headin' up to the office to find my gun. Nope, things aren't goin' so well."
  7. With the media going out of their way to push a negative outlook (doom and gloom make better ratings), and the politicians more interested in election year posturing and partisan power-plays than actually helping, it's nice to get some good news for once.
  8. Given the current state of affairs, I decided to go ahead and pre-order Winter Soldier, Crossbones and Spymaster through Pulse. For reasons known only to them they're marking up this particular wave 1.63 per figure, but what the hay. I figure with my luck, Soldier and Bones (my Big Wants this time out) will end up being the HTF figures of this wave, so I thought I'd skip the aggravation. YOLO, right?
  9. Well, I honestly don't know (or frankly give a s--t), but they are doing that whole Kamala's Law silliness soon. I figured maybe this would lead to that.
  10. Because "Poor literacy is kewl!" * * I am so sorry.
  11. Oddly enough, that IS part of it. The brighter deco, the buffer frame; it just screams "Comic Book." Not that I have a problem with 80 Cap, I just like the vibe off Retro more. Not even sure why I sold my first one.
  12. Well, my Retro Cap arrived a day early. I don't know why, I just like this particular sculpt/deco a lot better than the 80th Cap. Odd considering I hated it when it was first released as Cap-Wolf.
  13. Unless you already have COVID-19, the only risk you run by going out is to yourself. Even at that, the best defense is simple common sense hygiene practices: wash your hands often, don't eat after anyone, keep your hands away from your face, etc. Something else to keep in mind is the economic situation. Even if they got the vaccine out tomorrow, the damage has already being done. Businesses, especially brick-n-mortar stores, are losing money hand over fist. If we don't get out there and support them with our cash, all projections point toward a Great Depression-level fiscal disaster.
  14. I've been pretty vocal about not changing the way we live our lives, but when even the President tells us not to go out unless necessary and avoid groups (I hate crowds anyway). It's time to reevaluate priorities. I'm not gonna crawl under a rock and cower, but there's no sense "tempting the dragon" either. I'll probably keep my hunting limited to my immediate area and severely curtail my trips. Fortunately, the stores around here aren't exactly known for putting out stock quickly (or at all in some cases), so it may not even matter.
