    I'd love to see a side by side of the new Hulks mixed with a standard MU figure. I like my Hulks big. Also wondering if I could swap heads between the two new ones. The cheaper on has the better of the two, if you ask me...

    Mine is due to arrive tomorrow - I will post some head swaps.

     

    My package arrived at my local sort center Saturday at 6:42 AM. No further updates since that time, and it did not come today. WTF? So no head swap pics today.

     

    That sucks I was looking forward to see some head swaps.

  2. I'm going on a run tomorrow to Newnan/Peachtree City to check out Target, TRU, and Five Below. Hoping for better results than I had today in Opelika/Montgomery (absolutely nothing with a side of needless car accident).

    That sucks its bad enough that we have to spend some of our free time driving from store to store looking for toys, and not only are we wasting gas ,but getting into and accident REALLY sucks... sorry to hear

  3.  

    thanks for the birthday wishes folks!

     

    I am about to go out and hit 2 targets and tru.. wish me luck, there is alot of stuff hitting that I would like to find!

     

    StarWars 6 inch line, Marvel Legends, GiJoe new wave, MU wave 22 (need Rhino and Mysterio)

     

    Has anyone seen the GI Joe new wave in stores? After the whole missing Iron Man 2 and Thor waves, I decided to get the case from BBTS...I really like that Hasbro varied the hell out of that wave...not a duplicate in the box!

     

    Still waiting for them to get that wave 22...but my Marvel Legends and Star Wars is ready to send!

    I'm on vacation with my family, I visited about 6 toys r us in Connecticut and 3 in Long Island. I haven't seen any thing new except for leftovers from MU 22, only one Captain America found in the wild. No gi joes no black series Star Wars 3 3/4 or the 6 inch.

     

    I'm traveling back home to NYC on Saturday and have about 6 more TRU's I can hit and I have seen nothing at all at target.

  4. here are some photos of local spots selection since I was bored:

    For NY'ers this is in Bronx,NY in the Pelham Parkway area...near 2 train.

    those fricking Iron-man's have held up way too much peg space. The Marvel Legends were against another wall and the Marvel Select in the back.

     

    Like I told many other guys who asked, check out those little mom and pop discount shops, the ones that sell umbrellas and bags in NY, some inside local mom and pop videogame spots.

    they sometimes have old figures sitting on pegs for months, even years at a time. (prices vary greatly per figure, depending on if they think something is of value or not)

    Brother I'm going to be in the Bronx on Monday when you can could you give me the full address.

    Got my HTS order today(Boba Fett and Taco truck)...fast, was not expecting it so soon...and I did not pay for faster shipping! Anybody else get theirs?

     

    Wow that's fast for not paying for extra for shipping, where are you located? Mine haven't even shipped yet and I ordered the first minute.

     

    In NC...but I logged in to HTS and I did have priority shipping selected...I must have accidentally clicked on it in the frenzy of trying to check out. Still faster then what I paid for...it says shipped on the Friday the 26th and delivered on the Friday the 26th.

     

    Anyway...I have never been a big Deadpool fan, but this set is pretty cool...don't know if I want to open it. The Boba Fett packaging is really cool, but probably could have waited for the single without frozen Han!

     

    when did they post on the site? I'm so pissed that I missed the deadpool corp

  6.  

    Picked up old man wolvie ebay $43.00 shipped.....now if I can get the dead pool corps... for about $65 shipped I'm still better off than spending the cost of the cons tickets, hotel,airfare and everything else while you are at a con..... I get free access to NYCC so I alway make up for the loses their....

    Yea I lucked out on both, I picked up the deadpool corps on eBay for 59.99 and two wolves, one for 55 shipped and one for 35 shopped.

     

    great buy on the deadpool set....I'm crapping out ......on that set.

  7.  

    Took the day off from work, and decided to go hunting in Queens,NY. I have 4 TRU's near me, and its a MU & ML Ghost town... Nothing but a Hulk figure....

    I'm just glad that this wave doesn't seem to have a really hot figure so I'm hopeful that I will find them soon enough.

     

    Did you hit up the store in Rego Park? That's the one in my neighborhood...it's the worst. They go months with nothing new, or so it seems. Then, all of a sudden, I'll find something.

     

    I hit Douglaston,College Point,Rego, and Long Island City.... complete ghost town..... :angry:

  8. I haven't had time to work on anything major for while now, but I have been doing minor repaints and touchups here and there.

     

    Gambit has a new coat and a couple cards, repainted Wolverines's belt to break up the monotony of yellow, did a little height extension on Magneto's waste (might be too subtle), and repainted dark Phoenix.

    Updated Fantastic Four. Added flames to Johnny, a "4" buckle for Ben, simple head swap for Reed, and Sue has new hair (didn't like it short) and I slapped it on the body of my original custom.

    Finally have a modern Cap worthy of the title Super Soldier. Basically a mixture of previous releases, plus the head of the newest one.

    Great job on Sue richards head where is the hair from?

    Crikey, my TRU hasn't had any MU for bloody ages! NYC metro-area collectors, have you found these in any TRUs?

    Well I was at the Time Square TRU yesterday and nothing. Today I hit 3 TRU's College Point, Queens had nothing....Douglaston, Queens had nothing....Carle place, Long island had them earlier in the week the only figure left was the repaint of Iron Spider man that looks fuchsia hot pink...really weird so they should be around soon....

     

    Where in NYC do you live?

    Damn, son, you are COMMITTED! I'm in Rego Park (QNS). I think Dragonkings is in BX. I work in Midtown East, a short shuttle ride to TS. If you find the new stuff there, PM me, and I'll do the same if I find anything at RPTRU or the Target next door in Elmhurst.

     

    I take it you're in Queens, too?

    I'm in Bayside, I'm glad to hear that your in rego park I was going to hit that today but I was pissed that I didn't find anything so I gave up... I work in midtown so I hit TS TRU and midtown comics about twice a month....We should join forces (Dragonking,You and me should create a collecting hunters club to help on gas and time)

     

    We need someone in Bklyn and SI

    I'm in Astoria and work in the West Village.

     

     

    Alright, alright! Let's set up an NYC-centric PM list and help each other out! I don't have a car, so I'm a little more limited, but I will share any details I find. Might work best if we all post our "wants" and commit to buying (at cost) any figs someone else in the area finds. Thoughts?

     

    That fine with me....I agree lets set centric PM list....

     

    what's the crap about the trash can????

    just wishful thinking.... on my part the two tj max by me still have gi joes from the first movie! it was a shot in the dark wishful thinking.....

     

    Which ones? I could use some for custom fodder.
