  1. I haven't been on here much lately so I may have missed some changes but did the 3.75" board get removed? Nothing is showing up under my forum topics for it. Really hope this is not the case. I mean, I know the scale has seen better days and Hasbro isn't exactly cranking out the new releases but some of us still do collect them. If the topics have been removed, I guess I'll go elsewhere for news and discussion. Which is a shame as this was my first and favorite community to interact with.

  2. Thanks for the info guys. They wouldn't get any 2 packs out of the back for me at Target yesterday but I'll try again this week. The high school kids are reluctant to even look up the dpci for me. I'll have to check Five Below as well. Don't need any of those comic packs but that's a good deal.


    Stitch, keep an eye on walmart.com for the Captain Marvel pack. I got a few a couple months ago for $6-7 each with free pick up.

  3. Thanks Wedge but no need. I was shocked to come home today and find them delivered already! Gave them a quick glance and they all appeared to have decent paint apps. The recent 2 packs really had me worried to order online but these look pretty good. Ultron didn't seem very gold to me, more brownish/dirty yellow, but that may have been the lighting I was under and it was only a quick look through the packaging. Hope to get some time tonight to open them up for a better look and add them to the collection.

  4. I found the 2 packs yesterday but they were quickly overshadowed by the boss fight and articulated icons figures waiting on my porch when I got home. TRU had 6 of each 2 pack and every 1 had issues. The best Enchantress also came with the worst Skurge. I picked out the best packs I could find and I'm happy to cross them off my list. In hindsight, I should have bought another Skurge for customs so I may go back today.

  5. @Dodge76 - There weren't any rollback tags or anything but all the X-Men pegs read $5. Right beside them the Spider-Man pegs were $20. I'm guessing you're right though, probably clearanced the 1st wave and never updated for the 2nd. Funny thing is, this walmart never had an abundance of ANYTHING. I stop there once a week and the pegs are always empty. In fact I don't remember ever seeing the 1st X wave there period. 5 miles down the road another walmart has tons of wave 1 still reg price. Go fig.


    @kmoua7 - These were found in southern NJ

  6. I luckily managed to grab a Cassian and a few death troopers off their website a while back but that wave has never shown up at any of the 10+ walmarts by me. In fact, I've only seen the ERG wave once since it was released. Every store has pegs loaded with Han, Leia and Finn... it's depressing. I've completely given up trying to find a scarif trooper. For the life of me I can't understand how their distribution is this bad. I envision pallets of scarif troopers and guardians 2 packs piled high in some huge, forgotten warehouse somewhere...


    On the MU side of things, I recently got a Compound Hulk and have Old Man Logan on the way. While I'm a couple variants shy, my collection is essentially 100% complete! Along with Logan, I also have a loose Astral Dr Strange coming which will replace my carded one.


    I wish I had gotten into collecting these from the beginning. I sadly missed the glory days of this line (didn't start until after the Infinite rebranding) but the past 3 yrs have been quite enjoyable building up my universe. Despite the cutbacks and price increases I really hope this line will continue.

  7. HTS has the new 2 packs up. 15% off with SPRING17 code.


    I don't collect MCU but I'm liking that Dr Strange pack. It doesn't appear to come with any extras, which is a shame because it'd be an instant buy for me if it had a couple of magic effects included. I'll most likely cave and buy both sets anyway but think I'll wait and hope for a sale.

  8. I'm sorry, I know Target uses a DCPI # but don't know where to find it. I can give you the UPC #s if that helps?


    6 3050949582 5 - Lady Deadpool

    6 3050949583 2 - Maestro

    6 3050949584 9 - Spidey UK

    6 3050949585 6 - Iron Man

    6 3050949586 3 - Wolverine

    6 3050949587 0 - Moon Knight


    Edit: I just checked my receipt and saw this #087061970 to the left of each item. I think that may be be the DCPI.


    Target had them reg $12.99

  9. I actually opened the helicarrier I've been sitting on, coincidentally, the same day my Hill arrived from China. I've compared both figures and the only differences I can tell is the face apps on the eBay one isn't quite as good (although mine isn't really that bad tbh) and the body looks a little bit less defined in the details. It takes a good eye to see the latter though. I wouldn't have even noticed unless someone else pointed it out in a different forum. Everything else is a 100% match - from the Hasbro copyright down to the number stamp on the leg.

  10. The Foom I received seems pretty legit to me. 1 of the leg joints is a little loose but that is my only nitpick. If it's a fake I can't tell it. I also bought a translucent and a solid MU Vision from that seller. Still waiting on the solid to arrive but, comparing the clear Vision I already owned with the one I just got, there's almost no difference. In fact, I think I prefer the bootleg one.

  11. Also forgot to mention walmart online has the Captain Marvel 2 pack for $13 and Black Panther for just over $6 if anyone is still looking for them. Alot of the ML 6" are on rollback as well for about $12.

    It's pretty crazy actually. A 4" Hydro-Man or Morbius is $11.28 while most of the 6" X-men are $11.92!


    @tellytubbygen no, not currently. I have gotten a few notices over the past weeks of relistings so there is a chance he'll have more. He was listing 1 a day at 1 point and selling them anywhere between 150-250, which isn't exactly cheap but still a lot better than 300 or over. If I get another notice I'll make sure to let you know.
