  1. I know that you're right, Tarot. I think I was just unrealistically hoping for something a little lower. I was remembering that I originally bought the Toy Biz Hulkbuster (Legendary Riders wave?) for $9.99 and I think that I still like it better, LOL. Of course I know that was also 20 years ago. This is one of those offerings that I don't necessarily ever expect to see make it to markdowns, either - but it's also not a must have for me, personally. Right now I consider myself on the fence, but will likely cave and pre-order it (FOMO). Although I might have to decide between this and the McFarlane Tumbler with Lucius that will be a pre-order next week (that has to be paid upfront at MTS). Marvel is my primary line and DC my 2nd, but I've always wanted a Lucius Fox figure. Like everyone else I've already got more Iron Man figures than I can easily count or display.
  2. Yikes, $60. That's not completely unexpected but still more than I was hoping for. I don't know that I need this that bad.
  3. I like this but am unsure if I will purchase it. It will likely depend on the price point. It does make me wish that I'd kept my old Toy Biz version though. I don't currently have a Hulkbuster armor in my collection because I hated the MCU and Marvel Select versions, and foolishly sold off the Toy Biz version.
  4. I've got the whole wave sitting in my Pile of Loot at BBTS also along with 2 of the SHIELD 3-pack, but I think that I'm going to wait for the Iron Man retro card wave to hit before I have it shipped out since I ordered all of those also, and it sounds like they're right behind these.
  5. Skipping this one, but am still hoping to find the Target exclusive retro card version that sold out on pre-orders. If I don't get it, I'll just stick with my Monster Venom wave version which isn't that different from the retro card version anyway.
  6. Congrats MeGrimlock78! Good luck to everyone in May! Thank you to JayC and BBTS for the contest!
  7. Nah, they just have a sale going on for Legends. They include pre-orders a lot of the time when they do these. It would have been nice to be able to pre-order Carol and Carnage both while they're on sale, but it is what it is, unfortunately. I did see Legends figures for as low as $11.99 though, but nothing terribly interesting. It's mostly stuff that has long since been clearanced out of stores like America Chavez, Avalance, Blue Marvel, Longshot, Multiple Man, Siryn, AOA Rogue, AOA Sabretooth, Secret Wars Doom/Rambeau 2-pack, etc. They almost always end up coming back in stock online around the same time they start showing up in stores. The one exception that I remember was the Tracksuit Mafia figure. I never had a problem finding that Black Widow figure. My particular Target had tons of her right up until the whole anniversary line went on clearance. I never saw a Tracksuit Mafia figure though. I do remember seeing dozens of comic Yondu on clearance for $7.49 around that same time, though - and that was another Target exclusive.
  8. Especially since these were store exclusives. It wouldn't surprise me at all if they took these Target/Walmart store exclusive retro carded figures (Venom and Carnage) and re-packaged them as a 2-pack for Pulse, Gamestop, Amazon, BBTS, EE, etc., They'd probably put something else in there to get people to buy them again too.... although I don't know what that would be off the top of my head. Alternate heads? A third highly desired figure that wasn't offered any other way? Who knows... but I definitely won't be surprised if/when it happens. I'm so tired of buying the same characters over and over again when I really only need one and only one version of each. No one to blame but myself, though - because I'm the one that keeps buying them. It's clearly an addiction.
  9. I'm one of those guys that had been long time loyal subscribers to many of these services since I don't have cable/satellite, but just recently dropped Paramount+ and AppleTV. Will be doing the same with (HBO) Max and Disney+/Hulu later this month. Netflix, Prime and Peacock will likely be the only ones that I keep every month going forward. Will only be adding the others for a month at a time when they have something I actually want to watch (once or twice per year).
  10. I understand the quality over quantity thing, but they definitely shouldn't expect people like me to keep a Disney+ subscription for 2 tv shows per year. I've been a subscriber since Day 1 and have never cancelled for even a month up to this point. However I'll be cancelling now as soon as X-men '97 is over and will then only re-subscribe for one month at a time after all episodes of the next Marvel shows are out, and then immediately cancel again each time after I binge them over a weekend. I'm not paying any longer for a monthly service all year long that is only giving me a dozen or so episodes per year of new content that I care about. I never re-watch anything and don't care at all about anything outside of their Marvel content. I've watched the Star Wars shows as well while I've been an active subscriber but would never subscribe just to watch those. There are 52 weeks in a year. If they can't provide at least 50 hours of new content per year that I want to watch then there is no way that I can justify paying for a subscription, period - especially as they keep raising their price. For the movies, I'll still go see each one in the theater. I definitely prefer quality over quantity here - but more than anything I think that Disney just needs to lower their expectations. There probably won't be many more slam dunk $1 billion movies like the Avengers movies did. That ship has likely mostly sailed on comic book properties, although it was nice while it lasted. I think that James Gunn and Warner Bros are going to learn that the hard way very soon. I won't be surprised if they can their whole "10-year plan" after 2 movies. Warner Bros has never had any patience and can never stick to a long term plan. If that Superman movie doesn't do at least $1 billion, that whole thing is probably over right out of the gate. The studios need to lower their budgets and lower their performance expectations. Not everything can be a blockbuster.
  11. I love this on the retro card, but I only need one Venom and have so many already. I feel like we just got the Knull version with the wings and then the Life Foundation 3-pack version. This looks fantastic but I'm not someone who wants to own more than one version of any character and while I like it, I'm only willing to buy it if it's going to replace all of the ones that I already have. I'm so tired of buying figures of the same characters over and over and over for minor upgrades. I wish they'd just give us one definitive version and move on, maybe occasionally re-issue that definitive version for those that missed it. There are so many characters that they haven't made yet that I'd rather they spend their efforts on. I'm happy for anyone that is excited for this, though.
  12. I received this 2-pack today. I love the elder Zemo, as it's a terrific update/upgrade over my old ToyBiz version, but I now have 4 different Zolas (well 3, plus an alternate BAF torso). Ridiculous.
  13. I never got the first one of these and pre-ordered this one. I think that I need to cancel it before it's too late.
