  1. Too bad about the delay but understandable. The funny part is that i wouldn't have expected to see this figure until may anyhow, given how inconsistent WM's distribution of their exclusive figures tends to be. While i don't recall the jacket from the comics (i'm assuming its a 90s thing) i recall her wearing grey in Miller's DD run and this is a cool looking figure with nice accessories so i will probably try and get her eventually. Read yesterday that VT is ordering WM/Target to stop selling non-essential items in-store (including toys). I'm guessing my state (MA) will follow suit before too long, so even the limited "check the toy aisle at WM while grocery shopping" hunts I've been doing will probably be coming to an end for awhile. In VT, you can still order items online for curbside pickup, though.
  2. Got to agree on this particular point. Seems like an attempt to ensure comic shops don't go the way of the dodo, but really marvel, dc, and image should be pushing everyone to switch to digital copies and collected trades. Since most people are cooped up right now, it would be a good time to get people to try and make the switch from paper to digital. No offense to comic store owners but tbh it feels like we're lucky comics stores have lasted as long as they have. I get that floppies generate the most revenue but publishers are going to have to figure out how to make a profit without them, other book publishers manage it atlho there are fewer publishers than there used to be.
  3. Looks pretty great!! don't see myself building him though. haven't seen this wave in the wild yet but i've only checked my local walmart.
  4. Normally i am all over classic comic villains but i was never a huge iron man fan and this guy just seems fairly bland-looking imo. Probably gonna skip him.
  5. On the flip side, this would be a really good time for marvel and dc to push their digital comic subscription services. Especially since a lot of libraries are closed and amazon will be putting book shipments on the back burner. this does feel like it may be the end of printed floppies (and consequently, the end of the comic store as we know it) whether the industry can survive without them, I don’t know. But of course we have much bigger concerns anyhow
  6. wow, do you remember where you saw that? if true, very disappointing.. altho tbh i have figures for most of the mcu major players already, aside from hawkeye and vision i guess, so i'd probably just stop buying most mcu figs and focus on comic figs, which is largely what i'm doing anyhow.
  7. Yeah that picture leapt out to me too, not very flattering. I do think the face looks better than it did in the promo pics, for what its worth. I'll cherry pick this wave if/when i see it in the wild. not my favorite wave by a longshot but who knows whats coming so i'll probably be less hesitant to make an impulse purchase if i like how they look in person.
  8. Yeah i was willing to reserve judgement when RG didn't look great in the promo pics, but now we've got another batch of pics from a reviewer and he still looks subpar. Weird since hasbro generally nails it.
  9. Looks pretty good, although i'm still on the fence about picking him up. On a side note, i could be wrong but looks like amazon has pulled listings for this wave, as well as AoA and the avengers game wave.
  10. Not hunting but still checking the toy aisle when I go out to get groceries. Found Hellbat yesterday at WM. Also picked up armored Spidey just so i could finish up Demogoblin. I had planned to wait a few months for a price drop but figured what’s the point. But I haven’t gone to WG or GS or made any trips out solely to look for figures. i will also say I think I would feel guilty ordering from amazon since so many folks are trying to get necessities delivered. But I suppose plenty of people are ordering nonessential goods too, to help them bide the time while they are hunkered down.
  11. Microaggression is there, you just can't seem them because they're the one with shrinking powers.
  12. Not for nothing, but from the way I’ve seen groceries flying off store shelves the past couple of days, I kinda doubt making sure Rulk is in stock is a huge priority for target employees at the moment. Sure, a week ago complaining about it would be fair game but I’m sure it’s on the back burner for many stores right now
  13. It feels like for practical purposes the wave was a fan channel exclusive. Never saw it all at at WM, Target, or WG at least in my area. only at FYE and Cap at Gamestop, plus amazon and e-tailers. OTOH it seemed like WM got a huge influx of endgame wave 2 around the holidays, so my theory is that they were supposed to get endgame wave 3 but Hasbro just fell behind in production so sent out wave 2 instead. I'm thinking we may see this wave show up when they set up aisle endcaps for the Widow movie, especially as there is a decent chance hasbro will fall behind in production there as well, at least in terms of meeting initial demand for the wave at WM/Target,
  14. They should just put New Mutants on Disney plus. Now would be a great time for them to promote their streaming service.
  15. its a matter of when, not if, imo. Something tells me that by the time those delays occur we'll all have bigger concerns. But until such time might as well enjoy the usual action figure speculation and discussion.
  16. Yeah, calling Prague a hole in the wall and "hell and away from decent medical care" is particularly strange. I'm guessing a lot of outsiders would describe Arkansas that way.
  17. Yeah that is kinda surprising, especially since both mystique and chameleon came with extra heads to illustrate their abilities. Oh well, not really a figure i'm interested in anyhow. At least the facial expression gives him a bit of personality.
  18. still on the fence about whether to get this figure but some really nice accessories make it very tempting. i'll probably grab it if i see it at WM which of course is not guaranteed.
  19. Yeah I ended up grabbing Sif, Monica and singularity (solely based on how cool she looked) individually off eBay and ended up paying just under $20 each on average. Later on the set was discounted but too late for me. Never saw it at tru back then either, only on their website. didn’t have any interest in lady Loki or Elsa, and the she-hulk didn’t seem like a huge upgrade over the version I already had so I held off on her as well. i do appreciate hasbro taking a risk by producing a big set with all female characters, especially so many that didn’t previously have figures.
  20. I think there's been some speculation that the upcoming Rogue figure portends a HoX wave, but i'm not sure if the rogue costume is accurate to that storyline or not.
  21. Good looking figures, but this wave is just not my cup of tea. from the wave figures, Sunfire is probably my favorite altho Beast and Jean both look great too (kind of weird that Jean has no effect pieces but whatever). Sugarman looks cool although it seems like he would have a limited number of poses he can achieve. I'll be curious to see how this wave sells, someone else pointed out that preorders for the loose BAF are selling slower than usual on Dorkside... but that could just mean that people plan to get the whole wave rather than merely going for the BAF, which seems plausible. Seems like most people are either all-in or mostly skipping the wave, we'll see. but certainly some pretty high-quality looking figures. I do like the idea of a wave dedicated to a specific storyline, rather than just spreading the figures out over a bunch of waves... just not sure if its the wisest move, sales-wise.
  22. i think they are still making their way into stores here in SE Massachusetts. Usually i figure out when to start checking WG by going on ebay and seeing if there are scalpers in my area selling them - right now there are 4 within 50 miles which means i probably should start checking. But I'm also thinking there will be likely be a WG sale soon so even if i find some i'll probably just get one for now. At least the last couple of years WG has had a pretty decent sale in Feb or march.
  23. We'll see. I'll definitely be skipping most of the wave, might get Sunfire as he's quite cool looking. Sugarman is also a crazy looking BAF but i'm not gonna shell out to complete him. Also, guess we can 100% put to rest that rumor about prices going up to $30 at places other than Gamestop/FYE, as amazon has $19.99 preorders for just about every wave coming up. Thanks for getting us all worked up over nothing, Toyshiz! If i were a follower of this guy to begin with, i'd be unfollowing at this point.
  24. I'm the complete opposite and will be quite irritated if Storm comes in a multipack with reissued versions of some combo of Wolverine, Colossus, Nightcrawler and/or Cyclops. I'd shell out for a 2-pack with her and just about anybody, and would be OK with a 3-pack as long as it came with either Banshee or Thunderbird or at least one new character. However, its hard to envision Target would want an exclusive 5-pack or 6-pack or whatever, as i don't think they've ever carried a set with that many figures before, so I'm not going to worry about it at the moment.
