  1. I am up to date as well, just waiting for the "love triangle " set to arrive in December. But the nightcrawler and storm figures that I ordered from HP have either paint or glue defects which makes me wander in the wild for better specimens. I am happy to have them, but the imperfections just eat at me.
  2. I watched the latest video from retangular and he mentioned that the 80th Anniversary Captain America should be showing up at Target, sometime in October. His info is pretty legit.
  3. Nice picture!!! I have been lucky enough to have the sets in your shot. Between Hasbro Pulse, GameStop, Target and Walmart I lucked out. Although my cap's white star on his chest looks like it has a thumb print on it. Going to search for a more perfect one in this imperfect world. AHHHHHHH!!!!!!
  4. Gigantor, This is the Avengers' squad that got me hooked on the comic book, minus Wanda Maximoff and Clint Barton as Goliath. With all my coin going to the 80th Anniversary releases, ( Wolvie and old Jade Jaws arrived today) who's got dough to get a custom sized Goliath. Thanks for the pics!!!!!
  5. The last 24 to 36 hours in my search for the 80th Anniversary Captain America has taken me on a roller coaster ride. First, I really dislike trying to shop for action figures at Walmart. The aisle for action figures is usually barren in my area, mostly empty pegs, disorganized and what figures you find are considerable old. That’s why I was happy to have a glimmer of hope that Target was going to also sell the figure. Access to Target stores is more convenient due to their proximity and number. But I decided to chance a Walmart that was showing CA in stock by the Brickseek site. The figure comes in a box of six and of course when I get there none had been put out. Strike one. I go home and later that evening while checking a Walmart link, it tells me that 5 are in stock at a certain store. When I see 5, I think they must be out on display. I decide that before I go to work, I’ll hit this Walmart. Monday morning I’m a man with a plan and a full tank of gas. I hit the store and…. OF COURSE, IT’S NOT ON DISPLAY. Strike 2. I get home from work very late into the evening and tap the Walmart like I had previously, and it states that the Walmart that I went to earlier in the day has 1 left to order for pickup! Faster than you can say Steve Rogers, I’m tapping those keys and secure the last one. But the story doesn’t end just quite yet. After viewing my order email, I went back to the Walmart site and it now populated that their closest store to me had 5 IN STOCK. Now this is where the crazy starts to take over. The store opens at 7AM, I’M off, you know where this is headed. I take off for the store and get there at 7:30AM. The place is relatively empty. I go down the aisle and find CRICKETS!!!!!!!! Again, a section that looks like swiss cheese. I stand there, motionless. I pace back and forth as if somehow the figure is going to materialize. Another customer sees me and reads my body language and asks me if there was something that I was looking for. I tell him and he says that this figure that will complete my 70’s Avengers collection is on the pallet in front of the aisle. WHAT!!!!!!!!! Sure enough the box was there and one had been taken out. There was an employee assisting the customer (who pointed me in the right direction) who was looking for a DC figure. Once the employee finished with the customer, she passed me the red, white and blue hero I was anxiously waiting for. Still no follow up email on when I can pickup the other CA, so for once being crazy worked out.
  6. I had been checking the status of my Hasbro Pulse orders since I had confirmed that they extracted payment from my credit card. The status showed paid but unfulfilled . When I got home for work to my surprise, 2 out of my 5 orders had arrived!!!! HELLO KURT WAGNER and MR SINISTER. The boys are magnificent. This is now the second time that I have not received any notification from HP that my orders were on their way. I'm not one to complain since I receive their shipments quickly but I wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this as well. Also, I ordered these two guys together but HP keeps sending them in separate boxes. Why???
  7. Ok shoot me now, I went back to Brickseek and now the 80th Anniversary Capt America is showing out of stock everywhere in my vicinity. 😭😭😭😭 Sorry for the false alarm.
  8. I just checked the Brickseek site and in my area the 80th Anniversary Capt America is showing in stock at Target!!!! Take the info for what its worth. Fingers crossed.
  9. Will do, if I get multiple boxes there will be a whole lot of recycling going on. 😉
  10. Ditto. I checked the Hasbro Pulse site this morning and saw the payment status of my Wendigo wave, X-Men retro, and Hulk/Wolverine 2-Pk orders changed from authorized to paid. I then looked at my credit card account and found the pending charges. It won't be long before those multiple packages hit my front door. All that glorious X-Men plastic!!!!!!!
  11. With all of the conversations about successful acquisitions of the 80th anniversary Thor and Iron Man figures it really depended on the reliability of when certain Target stores in your area were going to put them out. Between release dates and resets you could go CRAZY. I was lucky enough to pick up Thor on Sunday and this morning I went back to my closest Target with the belief that hopefully since it is the end of the month that the store would start putting them out for sale. I hit the alise and there was Anthony Stark in his red and gold glory. So hopefully for many the release time is real. Good luck!!!
  12. A Tale of Two Stores: Like many of you interested in the ML 80th Anniversary Thor, Iron man and Captain America, I have been checking in on the Brickseek link for inventory levels at my local Target stores. I know through this discussion forum a few contributors have stated that the release date is August 1st, but some stores may have put them on the sale floor. This morning while checking Brickseek, I saw that all stores in my immediate area showed both Thor and Iron Man in stock, While Captain America was not available. I then clicked on the view on Target link and jumped to Target’s website. It showed that both Thor and Iron Man were in stock in “my Store” at Clifton NJ. When I saw that I decided to hightail it to Target. When I got there the were some store associates putting out stock in the area, my heart skipped a beat, was I about to reach nirvana! But alas no, there was no Thor or Iron Man out. I asked one associate if they had Thor in stock. I gave him the DPCI and I told him that their website stated that it was in stock. He said something of some error on the website but that they didn’t have it in. He said the same could be said for Iron Man. So, I thought that they were staying true to the “August 1st “street date. Then I thought let me hit the Fairfield NJ store to see what the story is there. When I got there the area was quiet, no staff around. I found the action figure aisle and turned onto it and BOOM, there was Thor!!!!!! He was on a shelf all by his lonesome. There were about 6 to 7 to choose from and believe me you must check them out. Many had paint blemishes/smudges on the silver circles on his chest. I literally checked each one before picking out the best of the lot. We all know its good to be patient, but sometimes it’s better to be lucky. Happy hunting!!!
  13. 🔥 We are simpatico. About a 2 years or so ago I decided to try to create a set of my 1st avengers team that got me hooked in the comic. Thor, Cap, iron man, Vision (my favorite), Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Black Panther and Hawkeye/Goliath. I started with a Marvel Select "vintage" Thor", and paid on eBay to get the ML Scarlet Witch . I felt good about getting the Walmart exclusive ML Black Panther at the sale price. I held off on the original Vision figures, as well as the multiple incarnations of both Cap and Iron Man, because they didn't have that certain je ne sais quoi. THEN in the last year between the 2nd ML vintage wave (Vision and Hawkeye) , the recent family matters 3 pk and now the upcoming release of the 80th Annivesary big 3, WOW! Then Hasbro who has been affecting all of our wallets with the amount of figures that they have been pushing out, with the release of the ML Warlock wave, I decided to finish my Giant Size X-Men team (Sunfire, Polaris) and create a Blue team. Which then morphed into adding the Gold team ( I was a big fan of Bishop). Of course we need to sprinkle in some villains and we need Professor X........ You get where I'm coming from. So as soon as I am able to receive the 80th Anniversary trio ( I am searching for Cap like the rest of you ), Nightcrawler, Storm, Iceman, and the Love Triangle set; I think I can cool off my credit card. 🔥🔥🔥
  14. Do you have a Think Geek near you? A sister company or subsidiary to GameStop, they focus more on action figures. They have been getting replenished on both the X-Men retro wave and Wendigo wave almost every other day at the Palisades Mall in West Nyack NY . I popped in there on Sunday and a customer was purchasing a retro Storm as I got there. Keep the faith.
