  1. This is what I get for speaking out: In January, on another forum, there was a "Figure of the Year" thread where I made a new category to name Walgreens the Retailer of the Year. My reasoning was that they always came through for me. in 2017 I found 90% of my Legends there. And they restocked weekly. I rarely walked out of a Walgreens empty handed. In fact, I had to stash some figures in other aisles to go back later, because I would run out of money ! Fast forward to the Summer of 2018: No Reed anywhere; stale, old, unwanted stock for months, and my daily routine of going to the two Duane Reades near my bus station in Manhattan (because I ALWAYS found something at least once a week there) are all but dried up. The Hells Kitchen Duane Reade now has their Marvel Legends under lock and key (like dangerous medicines), and the Port Authority Duane Reade has REMOVED all their "Avengers Legends $19.99" "Spider-Man Legends $19.99" etc stickers, and now have printer paper stacked up on their Marvel Legends shelf ! ! ! WTF ?!?!?!?!
  2. Appocalypse Wave spotted in Manhattan. Midtown Comics They also had 10th Anniversary. Only one Red Skull left No Psylockes nor Multiple Man. Kid working the shop said they sold out quick.
  3. the Claw is an "Easter Egg" that Hasbro has sprinkled into their displays. This is an accessory to be released in the future, either with a figure, or as some sort of Accessories Pack with Deadsquirrel and the Killmonger mask
  4. For me, it's not about "gotta have it now" it's more of a "grab it when you see it" because it won't get restocked. I have a list of figures I still don't have because I choose to get other figures first, and planned to come back later to get the others (Mysterio, Hela, Reed Richards) and others that I simply never saw on a peg ever (Cyclops, Colossus Juggernaut wave Wolverine)
  5. for whatever reason, the Spider-Man Homecoming Vulture BaF wave is showing up in Duane Reades in Manhattan. I'm guessing they heavily ordered that movie-themed wave, and are sending their excess out now.
  6. Is this even a real thing ? Or did someone paint over her outfit and hair ? Has Hasbro stated that this is a running change ?
  7. To complete the BaF, we have to order online by the case now. which hurts brick&mortar, which causes them to stock less, which ultimately hurts Hasbro. it's a lose-lose-lose situation.
  8. This is getting frustrating. I saw Mysterio ONCE, never restocked. (I was more interested in getting Lasher and Gwenpool first – joke’s on me, huh?) Reed Richards is also impossible to find. I’ve never seen Cyclops, nor Colossus (even when I went to Wal-Mart for the restock this past weekend) Now it looks like we will never see a purple haired Psylocke. I doubt I will ever see a Doc Ock nor a Tiger Wolverine neither. Marvel Legends has become an online exclusive.
  9. Linden, NJ Wal-Mart. They had everyone except Cyclops and Colossus. I doubt those even made it out of the Back. They also have the Thanos BaF wave, without IronSpider, of course.
  10. annoying that the heads aren't swapable across figures of the same character; that should be a rule
  11. I’ve been a Marvel Legends collector since the Captain America/Hulk/Iron Man/Toad wave. And I am just as fascinated by the business of Action Figures as I am with the actual figures themselves. I cannot remember a year like 2018, with this many waves of figures. It has been a constant flow. An ambitious year for Hasbro, to be sure, but unfortunately the year Toys “R” Us ceased its US operation. (I am assuming TRU is a huge customer and was a large portion of their Accounts Receivable.) I am fearful that this has affected production, and will result in less figures getting produced. Which given Hasbro’s ambitious 2018 plans, really hurts us Collectors, as less product is being produced. The evidence to support my theory is the scarcity of Mysterio, Spider-Noir, and Reed Richards, and the fact that whole waves arrive in stores, disappear quickly, and are never restocked. HTS, which was always my last resort, runs out and deletes items (not "temporary out of stock", just this "this is embarrasing"). Same for BBTS and the others. Walgreens/Duane Reade, which has been my reliable, go-to store for Marvel Legends (three near my house, many more a short drive away, plus the 5 or 6 I visit everyday in my commute through Manhattan) has all but dried up lately. I used to run out of cash, and had to decide which figures to get today, and which to go back for after payday. But now, all I see are old inventory and mostly empty shelves.
  12. Poison. Another character I knew nothing about (until YouTube reviews), but such a cool figure that I must have one. I have alot of these ! And "Monster" Venom was the Marvel Legends Venom we should have had from the beginning. It's all good though. With three Venom and one Eddie Brock head (plus Porkrind!) I am OK having some extra Hyperion Venoms in the display! I will add some Back in Black Deadpool tendrils for even more variety !
  13. Duane Reade, Port Authority, New York City. WTH is this?!?!?!?!?!?
  14. Never really wanted any Pop. In fact, I never really got why anyone would want one. But these? Yeah, I'm gonna need a set.
  15. Loved it. It was a much smaller movie (no pun intended) than the others, no world or universe saving, just an intimate, personal story. Wasp could have been more Waspy, if you know what I mean, but the MCU Wasp is who she is. This should make a ton of money. Not Infinity War money, but still a ton. We need a Ghost Marvel Legends. Actually two: one solid, one phasing.
