  1. If Colosus is packed as a regular figure in the line, I would like for him to be using the Terrax / Absorbing Man / Dormamu body mold. If so for Hasbro to please modify the neck joint, they did for Juggernaut cause he looks to be based off the Rhino mold just not textured to look like animal hide. That would keep them from making the same mistake Toybiz did on their Colosus. The BAF isn't always the biggest figure of a wave. Hulk was taller than Thanos, and Thor of Odin or equal to. It would be cool for me for the BAF to be a character that hasn't been released like Sauron which could be repurposed and also bring about Lizard into a Spider-Man future line, but without it necessarily being the BAF. Don't know how many would agree with me. Either way what ever Hasbro decides to release being X-Men related I'm down as long as everything like paint, sculpt and arriculation is on point. I went ahead and preordered the first wave on BBTS to skip so many trips to Walmart, Target and TRU on this one. The Giant Man wave has been eluding my city for too long.

  2. We are in need of a new Cable to fit in scale with Stryfe. I would really like to see an upscaled marvel universe Cable. It was the first figure I bought that got me into collecting and has great articulation. I have both MU and ML figures in my collection and have noticed that they have released upscaled version of previously released MUs. For example the Commander Rogers, and soon to be released Kraven. Starting this topic to see who agrees and other ideas.

  3. This morning after getting off work and reading that the X-Men Legends are starting to pop up here and there made me want to go toy hunting. I had a feeling I was going to find at least the ones that are two per case. To my surprise there was a full case out on the pegs. With only 40 bucks to spare until tomorrows check I went ahead and just picked up Strom. However, Toys r us offers layaway and I went ahead and put the rest of the wave aside for later. The employee at the register said that if they go on sale or have a coupon at the time that I get ready to take them out they can apply it to the laway honoring the discounted price. Happy hunting.

  4. David_D, glad to share that I was able to find the complete GOTG set at my local Target in Laredo, TX on Saturday. I checked the DPCI code on the price scanner and it said in stock. I asked the employee in toys if he could check the stockroom for me and he was nice enough to go. He asked if I was going to scoop up the complete wave; and unfortunately, I only had cash to spare for one fig. He asked which one interested me the most and I was like Nova. So I'm glad to say and I quote the Thor sequel ending credits scene, "one down five more to go". Good luck to everyone in the hunt.

  5. Don't risk it. You have the main components, black widow and the Mandroid baf torso. Advise from my personal experience. I had ordered three Black Widows from Target.com, two for me and one for a friend, but package was lost in transit. It was originally shipped via UPS and then transferred to USPS for final delivery and according to online tracking package was delivered on both sites. I thought I was set to build two Mandroids and good thing I didn't go off trying to get the exttra Caps & Winter Soldier. What's odd though is that according to UPS tracking I had requested for the package to be held there for pick up and then next day it was posted that it was transferrred to USPS. I did not make that request and no mail man was at my door at the time it supposedly delivered cause I was waiting. It was my day off work. I think someone at my local UPS office has three Black Widows that don't belong to him(her). Still trying to hunt down at least one at retail price.

  6. Last night I managed to place an order from Amazon for Infinite series Hulk, Grim Reaper, and Wasp for 10.99 each. To get the free shipping I added the Cap for 7.50. Today as I headed over to Jack in the Box for their 2 for $3 croissants I decided to stop at the HEB in front first to buy some minute maid orange juice. Since I was there I checked the toy isle to see if they started stocking the marvel infinite series and to my good fortune they were all there. The best part about this story is that with Wasp in hand I asked an HEB employee with a code scanner nearby for a price check and he said $2.49. I immediately went back for all the figures I ordered last night through Amazon got the juice and went to the registers. I thought it was to good to be true and before the cashier rang them up I asked for another price check. She confirmed again the price of $2.49. I was like yeah go ahead I'm taking them. As soon as I got home I logged onto Amazon to cancel my order. I had already gotten the Hyperion figure a couple weeks ago through Amazon so first wave complete. BTW there was only one Wasp figure available.

  7. Cobra Soldier I was doing a friend a favor in bringing part of his collection from his house in Mexico on Saturday and he hooked it up with some DCUC figures. Well getting to my point we hit up Walmart over there and surprisingly they had Movie Avenger and Iron Man 3 figures on clearance for 95 pesos which is about $7.20. There were about five Ultrons there and 4 movie Hulks besides a mark 42, movie Caps & Iron man. I picked up a Hulk and a Avengers Iron Man. Don't know how long they'll last in stock. There were no movie Hawkeye which is the only figure I now need to complete my movie Avengers. The Hulk I picked is for trade to try to get a movie Hawkeye if anyone is interested.

  8. Just joined the group and I want to thank those that posted the Target DCPI for the Cap Legends. I was able to find a complete case on Saturday at one of my local Targets in Laredo, TX. I bought the whole case and sold the duplicates to a friend in town who also collects. Don't worry I sold them to him at retail, I'm not a scalper. Not to brag but in the attempt to find another Cap case for the same friend at the other local Target I did a search for the New Spiderman Legends on one of the price scanners and luckily they had a case in stock. Thanks to Marvelous News and all its members because I also became aware of the Target DCPI for that wave on this site. I am happy to say that I was able to find both Infinite Series waves for the Captain America and Spiderman Legends movie line in the same city. Laredo only has two Targets and is not that big of a city compared to other cities in Texas.
