  1. Jumped on the bandwagon as the rest of you fellas and snagged a Katy on clearance from Target. I knew I would take the plunge but I just didn't know when. Thanks Marvel Legends community!!!
  2. I'm with you. I was lucky enough to visit a Target at opening and was able to find one Jean Grey. There was a another collector already there checking out one of the five Wolverine's, but with ZERO interest in Marvel Girl. WHEW!!!! I ordered Moira on Amazon and will have her in a couple of weeks and then I'll be done for now.
  3. Target released the two pack on 10/4. Its available on the website.
  4. Agreed, My CC has a pending HP charge from today. I probably will be receiving my HC goon squad by the end of the week,
  5. So with the hoopla surrounding the Storm/Thunderbird set release , here’s my story. Shout out to GrtwhiteCustoms and or bashpics99 for alerting the community about popfindr as a resource. WAY BETTER THAN BRICKSEEK. I was able to check quantities at local targets in my area via popfindr and figured out my best attack plan. I saw that the quantity change at my closest Target and figured that I would go to the next closest one. I got up at 5:45AM and made it to that Target at 6:30AM. There were two guys in waiting then and I assumed that they were there for the 2 pack as well. But they were there for the new Funko POP releases. I was ecstatic, the store had 4 on hand and I would have 1st dibs!!!! So I chilled (not literally) and to everyone’s surprise a manager or two came to the front around 7:15 to find out what we were looking for and were going to let us know what was in stock. Me being the only one interested in ML, one mgr./employee looked at me as if I was speaking Klingon. I gave him the DCPI and he verified that they had it. When 8AM hit, we all walked in as if we were a school group on a trip. I broke off and went down the aisle where the Legends were. I found ZERO on the shelves. I was getting crazed at this point. I saw an employee two aisles over and gave him the DCPI and he told me that there were zero on the floor but he would check in the back. After he left another customer told me that he saw the set but they were gone in electronics. I almost went apoplectic! I went to electronics dept. register and saw the line of humanity that had been behind me, waiting for their turn and behind the counter was a lot of plastic: the multiple Funko POPS releases, ML 2 packs (Deadpool/Negasonic , Magneto/Professor X, Old Man Logan/Hawkeye, Storm/Thunderbird), Domino (Deadpool 2), Cable (Deadpool 2) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). Luckily when I went up to the counter, the manager/employee who check on the quantities for me earlier was ringing people up and told me that he would take care of me. Five minutes later, Ms. Monroe and Mr. Proudstar were mine!!! My Giant Size X-Men team is just about complete (where's that updated Banshee?) So I’m happy and a little tired and had to go to work after this chase, but as Hannibal Smith says, “ I love it when a plan comes together.”
  6. As a Premium Member as well, I ordered the set at roughly the same time you did (but 12PM Eastern). When I have shopped on HP the warehouse that items are shipped from is in PA, and the FedEx turn around time works out to be two days for me in NJ. I know that when I was checking the tracking, there was a notification that FedEx was closely monitoring the wildfires in the Northwest and they state that some service delays and disruptions can be anticipated for inbound and outbound shipments in the areas of CA, OR and WA. That's probably what's affecting your shipment. Be patient my friend.
  7. Just received my Hellfire Club set from Hasbro Pulse!!!!! Ooh la la! First thing, I want to complement Hasbro for sending the set in a fitted cardboard box, that gives further protection to the packaging. The figures themselves look terrific, with tons of accessories and the packaging is gorgeous. A tremendous set. Hopefully down the road we will see a Jason Wyngarde/Mastermind and Harry Leland. Now I'm just waiting for my Hellfire Guards (Goons) to complete this for now.
  8. I checked two in Northern NJ and spoke to Target reps who confirmed that the set won't be put out until 10/4/20. Happy shopping!!!!!
  9. Just received my confirmation from Hasbro Pulse that my Hellfire Club order is getting ready to be shipped. What's curious is that when I made the purchase, I never received a confirmation email. I took a screenshot of the order to make sure there would be no shenanigans. Happy to know that the Hellfire gang should be here by this weekend.
  10. Sorry to say but the one that I have has a R2 and L2 blast effect. I remember Jay C in his review noting that difference, so it helped you know which foot each went on.
  11. I went into one of my local Targets just for kicks and found the remnants of the Strong Guy wave to my surprise. Just Deadpool and Black Tom Cassidy on the shelf laying there. I had already ordered Maverick from HP and didn't think that I was going to be interested in any of the other figures, but Black Tom got me thinking that I can pair him up with Juggy. I also feel that Banshee will be getting that Hasbro update love soon, so I might as well prepare for that fighting Cassidy cousin's reunion.
  12. When I originally ordered the IM2020 back in April, I also received an email stating a delay. Subsequently I kept checking my order on the Walgreens website and saw that the released date would be today, 6/30/20. I got an email today that my order was being shipped. I also noticed that my credit card was charged yesterday, so orders are being processed. Hopefully you should get yours soon. Good luck!
  13. Mako, so sorry to learn of your personal loss. You and your family have my deepest sympathies.
  14. I was going to a work meeting this morning and figured I would leave early and hit a Walgreen's near where I use to work; where I had some success in the past finding their Marvel Legends exclusives. I walked in and had to reorient myself, but once I got my bearings I found the Stepford Cuckoos I had been in search of. There were three of the young ladies on the shelf. This was my second trip in as many days looking for the girls and to my surprise I came across 2 or 3 Doctor Dooms as well as other FF Super Skrull wave figures. So I know that Doom is popular but I've seen him in the wild on multiple occasions now. Call it kismet but I guess that it has been just my luck.
  15. Happy 2020 Forum Fans! It's been months since I added any remarks since my X-Men cravings were satisfied with all the 2019 vintage, 2PK and 3PK releases. I have ordered vintage Storm with the black suit (the one I really preferred) and I was going to take it easy. I had convinced myself to just order a figure if I was truly interested in it and not go searching. Even though this strayed from my X-Men aesthetic , I was interested in the Shang-Chi figure from the Demogoblin wave. I have the comics and followed the character from the early days. After seeing some video reviews, I was drawn to search for it since Hasbro Pulse was out of stock. I checked out a Target near where I work on my way home and found only the two Spider Man figures from the wave, so with today being my day off (taking my car for some repairs) I was about to do some HUNTING. I hit one Target and found the same two figures on a peg. I then ventured to another Target, where in the past I have been successful in finding something that I wasn't looking for. No Shang-Chi but to my surprise there was the entire FF/Super Skrull wave! Doctor Doom, She-Hulk et al. I always admired Doctor Doom as a top tier baddie. and for the time being I picked up him and She-Hulk. As I was venturing around, I was checking for the Stepford Cuckoos as well and in my travels I came upon a Walgreens that i was unaware of. So again I was amazed and shocked to find a Dani Moonstar and four of them! I grabbed one and made my way to Walmart, another Target and GC , before calling it a day. Alas no Shang-Chi or any other finds but unexpected plastic was found.
