  1. After reading this, I figured I'd stop by TRU on the way to work just to see but had no expectations since my store takes forever to stock anything. To my shock, I found the whole wave except Whirlwind. I asked an employee if he could check in back for me since there were 2 Caps on the pegs and he said he had just put them out right before I got there and that's all there was. I doubted that case had 2 Caps and no Whirlwind but I didn't push the matter. I was thrilled to score what I did. After, I decided to check Walmart. No Cap wave there but they did have most of the newest Spidey wave. I decided to hold off and wait for my pre-order to come in though. Tried Target after that but nothing. I'm really happy about finding (most of) this Cap wave today. Completely unexpected. Actually, I picked up a Select Mephisto a few days ago as well so it's been a great week all around.
  2. Yep my order says "processing" now. Hopefully get that confirm email before the end of the day.
  3. I use a friend's and it's okay but you pay for the new issues otherwise it's like reading the collected editions 6 months or so after the single issues were released. Example I haven't read any of the secret Wars stuff because i refuse to pay $5 for 22 pages. So I have to wait till they post them to read for free. Not all of the old stuff is available as you'd think it would be. But I have found stuff in the last 5 years or so that I've missed. Ok I see. It may be worth it for me since I haven't really read anything since the early 90s. I'd like to get a little caught up but don't need anything too current and certainly wouldn't pay $5 an issue for it. Thanks for the info! And Rukkdeez, I'm right there with you on Rescue. I'm not even familiar with the character but I know it'll drive me nuts later if I miss out! Almost pulled the trigger twice but that $99 smacked me back down to earth.
  4. Good lookin out Rukkdeez! My local Target didn't have the 3 pack in stock but another close by did. They had 4 in the back when I called but by the time I got there (45 min later) only had 1 left. Must've put them out on the shelf or an employee hoarded them all for themselves. They did do the price match no problem though so it was well worth the trip through the rain. A few other stores in my area showed them in stock too so I might go out tomorrow to try and grab another set. I'd like to get the Rescue figure as well but I'm still on the fence about subscribing to Marvel Unlimited. I read mixed reviews about the service. Anyone here have it and have any opinions to help me decide?
  5. My Daredevil arrived today. I wish everyone shipped as fast as Walgreens! Just waiting on that Target 3 pack then I can start saving for next year.
  6. Hulkbuster wave is back in stock on HTS. Free shipping with code: NewFreeShip
  7. It was my first as well and I made out great. Picked up the Vishanti and Ant Man sets. Icing on the cake to a great week of hauls for ML and MU for me. Received my GOTG set, Walgreens Ant Man and Spidey Rhino wave over the weekend along with a few MU guys I needed. Really excited for the Vishanti book though, I can't wait to get that shipped notification!
  8. Do these show up on hts under the "new to hts" section or somewhere else? I switched shifts at work so I'd at least have a chance at scoring 1 of the sets. I know my odds are slim to none but I don't think I can bring myself to pay what people are charging on Ebay.
  9. My guess is it depends on what one collects and the cost differences. For instance, I don't collect MCU figs. So for the Ant-Man wave, since the majority of them are comic versions, I wanted all the figs (minus MCU Ant-Man) and now have him and Ultron up for sale on Ebay to help pay for what the others cost me. For those that only collect MCU, it's probably a better deal to spend $10-15 for a loose Ant-Man and, lets just say, another $50 for Ultron than spending $120+ for the entire wave. Plus then you have the hassle of selling off the unwanteds and the worry that you'll get stuck eating a good portion of what you paid after the initial demand wears off and there's tons of them sitting on retail pegs.
  10. I found out over the weekend that my local collector shop had to cancel my orders for the Ant-man and Spidey waves. On my way home I decided to stop by TRU and surprisingly found everyone except Giant Man. Unfortunately, someone also cut open Bulldozer and stole the BAF part. I bought him anyway at a discount and was told I can exchange him for another when they restock. Bunch of savages in this town.
  11. I just checked and he's still there but didn't come up in a search for me either. I clicked on Marvel and found him on page 4, 2nd line down.
  12. The bt spidey is now available to purchase on hts for $9.99 but won't ship for about a month. Hopefully the rest of the wave will reappear again for sale as well.
