  1. Well, my Spidey/Mr Negative set came in on Friday. Went to pick it up and guess what? They had 2 Ryu/Widow sets, no Spidey. Their system showed they had 1 Spidey set and zero Ryus. I needed an extra Ryu anyway, so I bought both and the manager told me he'd re-order and contact the warehouse to correct my pre-order. I see from other forums that pretty much everyone had the same experience.

    Fast forward to today and my pre-order really did show up. Got home to crack it open and found out that...drum roll....Mr Negative has two left upper arms and his left arm past the elbow is actually a right arm and vice versa. Hasbro and Gamestop...get it together guys.

    And after this whole adventure I still have to find a Collector/Civil Warrior set. Way to go out with a bang Hasbro.

    I just got back from Meijer, where I found all three 2-packs.  I have yet to open the one with the Collector, but I like them so far (although the leg on my Spider-Man is a little wonky).

    After lunch, I have to rush off to GameStop to cancel my preorder and get my $5 back.

    If you have a Meijer in your area, you might want to check.

    So the Spidey set isn't a Gamestop exclusive? Between this and the recent TVC Island Rey debacle, Hasbro really needs to stop 3.75" exclusives until they can sort themselves out.

    And thanks ddhawkins. I assumed eBay but didn't know.

    I thought the others were not exclusive?  Am I wrong about that?

    I have no idea. Hasbro had these out at SDCC, but I haven't seen anyone mention them being exclusives anywhere. I just assumed they'd hit Gamestop too seeing how Ddhawkins found them sold together on eBay. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to hear that Hasbro doesn't even know where they'll end up :biggrin:

  4. There's a survey posted over on The Fwoosh for 6" collectors. It's mostly about packaging and sacrificing BAF pieces, accessories, or face sculpts instead of a $5 price hike. It's interesting to see this has gotten a lot of 6" fans worried and deciding to cherry pick. Many of us have speculated that the pendulum would eventually swing back in our direction. Could this be the start? If they really do raise prices by $5 and cut accessories or BAF pieces, it could hurt Legends. If that line starts to tank (and it already pegwarms), then we could finally see a resurgence as a cheaper option to please retailers.

    Wishful thinking or not, it's hilarious to see a lot of these guys getting upset at the price hike and loss of quality or extras when we have been through all of that and more and they constantly griped when we got anything they didn't have yet.

    I saw Vonner at SDCC rocking a Mattel shirt--I had no idea he had ended up there. That's good for him. 

    Regarding Feige....he's not all that distinct but hell, why not? I made a Joss Whedon figure for my MCU shelf back in the day (used the head from the mini-figs that came with the SDCC documentary a few years ago--same with Stan Lee). I do think Taika Watiti and James Gunn (I think he'll be back) should get some figure likeness someday. 

     

    At the risk of giving them ideas for the 6" line, I'd love to see a 3.75" box set (probably best at SDCC) that's a Best of MCU Directors. Gunn, Whedon, Waititi, Favreau, and Feige. Favreau could be repacked as Happy later on in a 2 pack with an Iron Man.

    That explains why the humans have improved for this line. Should have known Vonner was behind it. Hoping to get an Ian Malcolm and then a pegwarming Snoke to make my own Grandmaster.

    Are Malcolm's glasses removable? If you make a Grandmaster be sure to post some pics. Maybe it'll inspire people to do the same and that will relieve the pegs of all the extra Snokes.

     

    It would be awesome if they stick Vonner on the DC team. I'm still bitter that the Multiverse line became 6".

  7. So we may not be getting much from Hasbro these days, but look who is getting a figure from Mattel:

     

    I know they used his face for the unmasked cyborg War Machine from the IM2 line, but I think this is the first actual David Vonner action figure.  I will for sure be buying an extra for my Marvel shelves.

     

    On a somewhat related note, I know we'd all buy 3.75" Stan Lee figures by the case, but would anyone else here like a Kevin Feige? I feel like it'd be cool to have him with my MCU group shot.

     

  8. This is kind of infuriating, but I really don't know what I expected here. Legends already has not one, but TWO Kingpin figures and now they get a third one before we can get one? Not even a half-assed 5 poa figure? That Genis-Vell has been on my wishlist for quite a while, so of course 6" gets him first. It's bizarre reading some of the reactions from Legends collectors across the web. Opinions seem split between this being the best SDCC ever and the worst. I'd have loved to have even a mediocre showing for our line, but nope, nothing. I guess I'll pick up the vintage Wasp and Ant-Man because they could technically just be giant-size versions next to MU figures.

    Man, a lackluster showing for 3.75" Star Wars and World of Nintendo, zero news for the 3.75" Marvel line, James Gunn is fired from GotG 3 (and either a closeted pedo or a terrible comedian), Jurassic Park's 3.75" line is seemingly abandoned for 6", dogs and cats living together...mass hysteria. Eesh. What a terrible Comic-Con.

     

     

  9. My TRU has started pulling a bunch of stuff from the back. I hit the jackpot when some of my K-Marts closed. I'm talking '08 and '09 Star Wars Legacy BAD figures for $ a pop and MU figures from the first 3 waves for about that same price. No luck this time around though. Crossing my fingers that I can snag an AT-ACT or two for sub $50, but they'll probably be gone long before then.

  10.  

    If anyone wants one of the Ultron Prowler Bots from the Playmation line, they're currently on sale for a buck at TRU. I grabbed a few (or 6) for dioramas. I don't recognize them from any of the comics, but they look cool and this line is starved for anything even remotely resembling a vehicle.

    I guess those *remotely* resemble a vehicle! ;)

     

    They look really cool with Avengers posed fighting them. And they seem like something that could have been in the comics. To be honest, I'm actually a little disappointed that Playmation fizzled out. I had no interest in the interactive aspect, but MODOK was nice. I wouldn't have minded a few more releases like that. Now that the X-Men are back home, we could have seen some cool Sentinel designs if this line lasting long enough.

  11.  

    If anyone has a need for a 3.75" scale dentist's chair, the new wave of Tsum Tsum blind packs has one with Darla (from Finding Nemo). I'm surprised they were able to cram it into the tiny packet. Random I know, but there ain't much going on here these days.

     

    If I ever have the room to set up my Fallout settlement diorama again, I definitely need one for my wasteland Doctor's office.

     

    They're showing up at TRU and Walmart right now. $1.98 at WM is really hard to beat.

     

    @NorrinRadd, yes to the Mad Love scene. I hadn't even thought of that. We really do need BTAS figures in this scale.
