  1. My first inclination is to agree that they are probably fakes. But honestly, they look well done enough that if I saw them in the store I'd plop down retail price to get them. Only problem I see is with Gray Hulk's gray pants blending right in with the rest of him.

    So if someone customized and repacked that for some reason, I hope they drop one off at a store near me. But seriously, why go through all the trouble of repainting those just to put them back on the shelf......

    ...unless they did a few others to sell on Ebay and they're counting on this as publicity hoping that some collector would find it and post it somewhere creating demand. If so, not a very good marketing scheme.

    not "fakes", customs. Posted on a customizers page on facebook. He's one of the ones who does custom MU's with matching cards and backings

  2. I found a Nom Anor Starwars EU figure today. I picked it up along with a Gamorrean Guard. Not sure I haven't ever seen either figure and thought they might be worth grabbing. Are these figures rare at all?

     

    I don't collect SW stuff but I usually check it out because I love Star Wars.

    I picked up a GG about a week ago since I had never seen it and also saw another a couple of days ago but left it since it had a bad card. I would love to find the EU figures

     

    Gamorrean Guard is a troop builder, but it's a repack.

    and maybe that's why I've seen them twice now and never before :)

  3. Ok well I just wasn't sure. For other collectibles like cards and what not, there are price guides that are updated constantly for market demand and whatnot. I normally use ebay completed listings and just average them out, but I wasn't sure if a site had done that already or had some historical basis.

     

    Also with the new line, I still find most of them for far over MSRP...especially with this Wave 2 like Fantomex, Spidey, Madame, Daken... Is the supply for these figures just that bad?

     

     

    I've never found any kind of price guide to be accurate. Even since the 80's when I was collecting sports cards.

     

    Kinda, Wave 2 didn't seem to hit everywhere and when it did they didn't last long. I've probably seen them at different stores on maybe 3 occasions since they've been released. I got most of mine in cases online. I still see most of the figures you mentioned in the low $20's although some went for more (it's really up to the buyer). The only one's that are near impossible to find for a good price are the Big Time Spider-man and Masked Daken. They never hit en masse here although BT Spidey has showed up in Disney Stores. BBTS is getting revision cases of wave 2 in August

    1x Heroic Age Captain America

    1x X-Men's Hope Summers

    1x Constrictor

    1x Dark Wolverine

    1x Ghost Rider

    1x Future Foundation or Big Time Spider-Man

    1x Marvel's Drax

    1x Fantomex

    and Wave 1 again sometime this month. Maybe retailers may be getting more as well

  4. that would be impossible to list as the prices fluctuate. eBay has always been the best guide for what the current prices people are paying for them. Just look at the completed listings and you can get an idea. And yes the older ones are going to be fairly expensive and the new ones you should be able to get around retail price or maybe not more than $5 over.

  5. Man my anti virus keeps blocking fake app attacks and now trojans when I come to this site lol Anyone know what might be going on? Its only on this site.

     

    Oh ya to make this marvel related, Is anyone going to SDCC and can pick me up a Masters of Evil set? My brother is not going til saterday and apperantly all MU exclusives had sold out by then........

     

     

    I don't know what virus warning stuff is going on with you, but I don't have it with me. Firefox does block a popup from here every once in a while though

    mine are blocked constantly on this site with firefox and chrome. sometimes it get's through though. I was reading it was more common on forum based sites. I even get it on my phone sometimes. It was a popup to win something. I forget the name of the website but I googled it and it gave me some information.

  6. Ok, what exactly do these GI JOE dollar general exclusives look like? I've seen quite a few GI JOES in my dollar generals but I do not know how different they are from the normal ones.

     

    Direct me to a picture and maybe I can help some of you guys out who seem to be hunting them.

     

    Oh and the Walmart here is down to just 3 MU figures. I really hope that when they restock that Prof X or somebody new is sitting there waiting.

    These guys

  7. Is anyone interested in the U.K. Super articulated gold eye Spidey variant? I don't have him but there's plenty around here.

     

    I need the new Rulk, Hulk and Avengers Black Widow if anyone wants to trade (1 for 1).

     

    Any chance you could take a pic of this Spidey fig. I'm intrigued...

    it's exactly the same figure except the eyes are goldish. you can vaguely see the difference on the back of the spidey package. if you check eBay overseas they have some

  8. I dont think the price of buying something your collecting, then waiting till its off the market and selling it for a higher price is that bad as long as its reasonable to the original price; like a 4 dollar figure should never go above like 30 unless its been like 50 years. But people who buy toys for the purpose of selling it while its still out in circulation or buy it for the entire purpose of selling it, that's BS and those people can burn for all eternity where they belong ^_^

     

    (Im very jaded right now because I didnt get my apocalypse at Origins as you can tell and the people at the tables I played already had one and took it exclusively for the purposes of selling and wouldnt trade anything for them cause they could get 140 out of the figure -_-)

    you can edit the double post. What is this "apocalypse at Origins" you're talking about?
