  1. I am stuck in a never-ending cycle of insanity: A wave is announced that interests me and reignites my interest in Marvel Legends That new wave goes up for Pre-Order, and the figure I am most excited about gets PRE sold out I start posting in Marvel Legends Groups and Forums about my disappointment that the figure I want is unobtainable, yet other figures warm pegs, how stupid Hasbro is for not realizing the figure I want is the most desirable, and should be two/three/four per case. I try brickseek, and other useless inventory tracking sites, and ultimately stalk the usual Brick & Mortar stores, looking for that impossible-to-get figure I want. I have my friends across the country on the lookout for that figure. I find the other figures in the wave on pegs EVERYWHERE, but not THE ONE I want. I keep looking. I see new figures in other properties I collect, but hold my pennies for that specific Marvel Legends I am currently obsessed with I get frustrated, and quit Marvel Legends collecting. I pack up all my Marvel Legends and stack the tubs in the back of my garage, and focus on the other figures in my Collection. I start hunting for all the Eaglemoss, NECA, DC, Black Series, etc figures that I passed on while searching for that impossible-to-get Marvel Legends. …… a few months later ….. I find that impossible-to-get figure when Hasbro does the inevitable restock of casefulls of the desirable figures that I always seem to forget they do. My interest in Marvel Legends is REIGNITED! I track down the rest of the wave to complete the BaF I don’t really want. I dig out my Marvel Legends from the back of the garage and display them with my new wave! I look at my pile of incomplete BaFs and start searching eBay for parts. New waves come out in rapid succession, I still want to complete the BaFs, and get new stuff, but I just can’t keep up, and get frustrated. I decide that I am done with Marvel Legends; I have an awesome collection, and can enjoy what I have, and not worry about the BaF I never wanted in the first place, nor the new mold of a character I have already bought 17 previous versions of. I focus on Eaglemoss, NECA, Black Series, DC, etc etc etc Then the cycle begins again…… A wave is announced that interests me and reignites my interest in Marvel Legends That new wave goes up for Pre-Order . . . . . . . . .
  2. My Wal-Mart is in Linden, NJ. They rebuilt the store, and since that rebuild, they have had NOTHING. It's almost as if they decided to no longer sell action-figures. No I am not exaggerating. I have stopped going into that store alltogether, so Wal-Mart exclusives really upset me. I ask for location, because I have friends all over, who are willing to shop for me, so I need locations if I am going to let them know if stuff is hitting their areas, or near them.
  3. it would help us collectors if you gave a location, so that we can know where to go to find that impossible-to-get Cable
  4. How I come I keep getting emails "Your product is back in stock at Walmart.com"? (I set up notifications for Cable and VenomCap) Yet when I click the link, it is the same OUT OF STOCK page that prompted me to set up the notifications. Is Wal-Mart mocking us ? Are they putting up one at a time, so they sell out immediately? God I hate Wal-Mart
  5. I was right. This is fun for you, the thrill of the hunt, I mean. I'd rather be able to display a collection, than have hunting stories about how I acquired them. To each his own; neither is right or wrong.
  6. If presales selling out within minutes of being put online is somehow fun for you, then great. It is not fun for me. Our hobby is broken.
  7. it would help us collectors if you gave a location, so that we can know where to go to get one of those 6 impossible-to-get Cables
  8. Store exclusives continue to be the bane of our hobby. It should be easy: company makes what we want, and we give company money for it. Or in the case of store exclusives: Store puts exclusive up for PRE ORDER, company manufactures the volume to satisfy that PRE order. Supply and Demand, Economics 101. It feels like the future of our hobby is Haslab crowd-funding.
  9. This. I passed on Gladiator, and never completed Apocalypse.
  10. Still in stock. For now at least. Storm went quick, so act fast. https://www.midtowncomics.com/product/1912937
  11. Presoldout online, I was sure he was this year's Storm. So happy to be wrong, I was able to select the best specimen from the 10 hanging there this morning. WOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!
  12. Midtown Comics, Times Square, NYC Super Skrull wave. Plenty of Dooms. I guess he is two per case. Hasbro makes a good decision! Not so many (She) Hulk though :(
  13. So after a very long, very stressful day, I decide to stop at Target on my way home, last minute. And there she was, hanging on a peg, waiting for me. My GRAIL figure FINALLY!!!!!
