  1. 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.
  2. I found these today at Dollar Tree: https://www.dollartree.com/Marvel-Avengers-Plastic-Superhero-Busts-4-in-/p402387/index.pro They're slightly larger than MU torsos. The listing says 4" when it should say 4" scale. From base to head, they come up to the waist of an average MU figure. Nice decor for an Avengers Mansion/Tower display.
  3. In more ways than one too. Mega Man doesn't really fit in with any existing teams or groups that we've gotten so he really feels like an odd duck without other Capcom figures. I've seen a lot of 6" collectors lamenting the fact that this wasn't a full 6" line and (as much as it hurts to admit it) they're kinda right. Hasbro likely would have gone all out with these if they were in their favorite scale so it's weird the way they've handled this.
  4. No clue. I had to ask an employee to pull the case from the back and the remaining 5 sets still haven't been put on the shelves yet. My set of the final wave came in from HTS today and everyone has QC issues except for Ultron. Nazi Cap has extra plastic between the peg and joint on his left elbow and I'm afraid to cut too much away and risk nicking the peg. Jessica's right arm from the elbow down is made of soft, rubbery plastic instead of hard plastic and it doesn't want to connect securely to her upper arm. Magneto has the same iffy ankle joints that the 6" Kamala Khan suffered from, so it seems to be a matter of time before the peg snaps. Spider-Man 2099 has a warped lower left leg due to the wonky way it's positioned in the package. Maybe it is for the best that Hasbro takes a break for a little while until they can get their %$^ together.
  5. I think that would require Dwight to care way more about this scale than he does. It's just simple negligence. They start out with a decent first wave, but they overship the hell out of it and subsequent waves become impossible to find as retailers dump the line. The leftovers are pawned off to outlet stores for pennies on the dollar. Retailers hold some of the blame here, because there is NOTHING stopping them from going light on the early waves to ensure future waves can make it to the shelves. Notice how it's very rare that any "first wave" figure is hard to find? I really wish the Captain Marvel comic pack would have shown up for $5 because that would have made army buildilng Kree a no-brainer. Big Lots has piles of them for $10, but that's a little more than I want to spend since I'm ending up with an army of Carols too.
  6. If anyone still needs the GotG comic packs from last year, they're out now at Five Below. That Groot is absolutely worth $5 if you still need him. I've been to 4 different Five Belows and they all had dozens of each set as well as the Thor/Jane-Thor comic pack.
  7. You're welcome. Thanks to dragonkings for the initial heads up. Word of caution for anyone who hasn't found them, Mega Man's eyes have horrible QC. A Target employee pulled a sealed case from the back for me and out of six 2-packs, 4 Mega Men (Mega Mans?) had eyes resembling Steve Buscemi in Mr Deeds.
  8. Thanks, I'll try the UPC. Jessica finally came back in stock on HTS so I put my order in for the set of 5. Used a 20% off code and they came out to just over $10 each. That's a much easier pill to swallow than full retail.
  9. Woah nice. Could you post the DPCI for Mega Man/Iron Man? Many thanks in advance.
  10. Boy I missed the party huh? Jessica is still out of stock. Hopefully she comes back while the other 4 are still available. Seeing those 6" Black Panther figures has me wanting Killmonger. It's such a cheap and easy figure for Hasbro to do that surely we'll get him in a 2-pack right? Pretty please Hasbro?
  11. BBTS has them for $85. Higher cost per figure, but it's cheaper than a case from EE and you don't have to worry about unloading extras.
  12. All the crossover stuff with the Revolution set has me wanting to put up a Hasbro universe diorama with everybody fighting everybody. Joes armed with Nerf guns riding MLPs into battle against Decepticons and Baron Karza. Micronauts teaming with Rom and the Autobots to stop Cobra Commander from acquiring barrels of nuclear Play Doh. And of course the Monopoly man is bankrolling both sides of the war. Hasbro really needs to open the floodgates with 3.75" Marvel figures because my mind is going to some weird places with nothing else to collect
  13. Does anyone know if Hasbro has made 3.75" scale Nerf guns that the figures can hold? Or are the various funky colored spring loaded guns the closest they've come?
  14. Kmart near me has had a USM 5" Goblin/Venom 2 pack lying around for months with the cardback ripped off. They finally clearanced it out for $2 and i bought it. I still like the non-orange armed Goblin better, but for that price it is hard to complain.
  15. What I've seen in stores seems to suggest the latter. Mine isn't perfect but she definitely falls under "as good as it is ever going to get".
  16. Thanks Ddhawkins. That Falcon is on the wish list in my sig. Hopefully I can cross him off soon.
  17. Anybody want some Dr Strange Legends? I've been picking up the ones I find on clearance for the Dormammu pieces. I've got Enchantress, Mordo, and Brother Voodoo up for grabs (minus BAF parts). $15 each shipped.
  18. From what I've seen in stores, you are really rolling the dice on Enchantress by buying her unseen like that. Hopefully her eyes turn out ok.
  19. Do you have a DPCI #? No and I should have written it down. I didn't think about it until I was half way home.
  20. And they aren't street dated at Target. I had the cashier in electronics check. I'm still getting the ones they're holding for me at TRU because they had better paint.
  21. Found the Thor 2 packs at TRU today, but they wouldn't break street date. They were nice enough to put one of each under the counter with my name and phone number so I can pick them up on the first. Thank Odin too, because I managed to find the least derpy looking Enchantress.
  22. Missed the Skurge set on TRU, but I'm not worried yet. If the previous 2 packs are any indication, then I shouldn't have a problem finding him in the wild
  23. Is this just for an inventory reset or has Target officially thrown in the towel?
