  1. It's out already, many places. Lots of people have found it already. One user on another site has bought at least six and has just been selling them for his cost (including shipping) to whoever wants them.
  2. Well, it wouldn't, would it? You're not a wife. Nobody gets to choose which words cause them harm. Words derive their power from history. You do get to choose which words you use. I 100% agree that jumping down people's throats about it is the wrong approach, and that politely pointing out the problems with the term is always more likely to achieve the desired result, but doubling down on words because you "grew up with them" is also the wrong approach. People's differences lead to different experiences and perspectives, and not being able to relate to a word's harm doesn't make it harmless. It isn't only in so far as one word was always pointed at people and the other was more indirect. Go ahead and replace "wife beater" with the 'n'-word in the quote above this one, and "tank" with "a coloured fella'". I hope you don't like what you read, but people have definitely said that. To be clear, my assumption was that you weren't abused by your husband, but I'm sorry you had to go through that. Tarot is actually talking about the one-post person who initially commented that use of the term 'wife beater' is offensive. Euphoricviking is a regular poster.
  3. They told you they have a direct Hasbro account, though? Or they're just selling at MSRP, so you assume they do? Because, again, there are lots of wholesalers of Hasbro product (EE included), which would theoretically afford them the luxury of selling at MSRP and still generating some amount of profit. My understanding, as a retailer, is that the only places with direct Hasbro accounts (at least in the US) are Target, Walgreens, Walmart, and then the various wholesale distributors. Maybe some of the bigger toy etailers too. Hell, even Gamestop seems to use EE. If you call the Hasbro retail account line at 1-800-742-7276, it flat out says in the greeting message that they're not opening new accounts, and my conversations with wholesalers about Hasbro have all indicated that most of them struggle to meet the ordering minimums to even retain direct accounts. Maybe your store has been open so long they're grandfathered into having an account? Or maybe they do Walmart-levels of sales? I don't know.
  4. EE does have this listed on their wholesale site, and have given me the go-live notice. Not sure why it isn't on their retail site yet. EE is a wholesaler as well as a retailer. Other stores are buying from EE at wholesale rates. You can't get a direct account with Hasbro unless you have an absolutely staggering sales volume. I would be surprised if any comic book shop is doing enough sales on Legends to have a direct Hasbro account, short of one of the bigger chains like Forbidden Planet or Newbury.
  5. The anniversary line this year is for the Fox X-Men movies, so the whoooole anniversary line is X-Men this year, which is why we're seeing so many X-Men reveals. Next year it'll be something different, and there will likely not be so much X-saturation. Most of the non-anniversary fan channel exclusives have been Spider-Man-related, but they showed most of them earlier in the year. It probably would have made sense to reveal some of the X-Men stuff earlier, and sprinkle the Spider-Man stuff in later so it didn't feel so monotonous, though. I think they were just trying to tie reveals for the Spider-Man fan channel stuff in with the hype for the Spider-Man retro wave's release, and now they're focusing on the end of the year X-Men anniversary stuff, which is basically a wave unto itself (though I know it's not actually a wave), with a bunch of additional products peppered in around it.
  6. If only! I have been loving the recent state of Legends reveals, even if I'm nervous about being able to get the Hellfire Club and Storm/Thunderbird sets.
  7. I have an Emma for trade, new in box. The trouble is I don't really have any Legends wants, unless you're in for an extra Storm/Thunderbird preorder you could spare. I have Black Series wants, though.
  8. It's worse than that. His boot cuffs are down in some of the official promo shots too. It's not boding well for anyone who doesn't want to glue them.
  9. What exactly is the complaint here? That Hasbro couldn't force Disney to release films they weren't safely or legally able to complete because of a pandemic? That Hasbro is making too much money off not releasing a bunch of stuff it had planned? That Disney had COVID-19 cooked up in the laboratories they keep in their vault as the perfect ruse to sabotage their wildly profitable MCU? That Mulan engineered the virus in conjunction with Baron Zemo as a means of asserting Chinese authority over the people of Hong Kong? I'm having a hard time putting my finger on what specific grievance you're filing.
  10. I had certainly hoped for Sugar Man, not sure how realistic I believed it was. For X-Men, I think these are the most likely remaining characters: Armor, Blob, Brood, Holocaust (a shoo-in if they revisit Age of Apocalypse), and Mojo. These are a little dicier, but still quite likely: Bonebreaker, Ch'od, Gentle, Orphan Maker (Dawn of X wave, maybe), and Rockslide. And these are much less likely: Blockbuster, Glob Herman, Living Monolith, Post, S.H.I.V.A., and Sunder.
  11. I'm torn. I definitely prefer the blue and yellow, but his green outfit is literally all that's needed to finish the Giant Size team once Storm and Thunderbird release. I still think I'd prefer blue and yellow.
  12. I'm pretty open. I mostly just want Destiny, and Moira's the best I've got for Destiny's nemesis. 🙂 I usually think of Moira in her yellow and pink 90s look, but might prefer the training uniform, honestly.
  13. The anniversary stuff is all more expensive. It's all averaging $25USD/figure instead of $20 (or more for Nimrod). That's all the movie stuff, but also the non-movie two-packs and three-pack.
  14. It's tough, because many of the villains I want (Blob, Exodus, Senyaka, etc.) don't really have nemeses, and there aren't many nemesis pairs left where neither figure has been done in their most appropriate look yet. So, some of these might seem weird to some of you (especially those who aren't actively reading). Colossus (Juggernaut) vs. Magik (2000s New Mutants, etc.) Cyclops (Age of Apocalypse) vs. Havok (Age of Apocalypse) Destiny vs. Moira MacTaggart Lady Deathstrike vs. Wolverine (I guess in his Japanese get-up?) Longshot vs. Mojo Magik (original New Mutants) vs. N'astirh Psylocke (armoured) vs. Spiral
  15. I really think Hasbro's plan this year was to drag reveals out, spoiling them a few at a time to keep people excited throughout the pandemic, rather than dropping them all at once like they normally would. No doubt the movie production delays also delayed some waves, and thus some wave announcements, but I think they were trying to keep up momentum during a tough time and just underestimated how much people like seeing the big announcement all at once. They've spoiled a lot more over the last few months than just the X-Men stuff on Tuesday, and normally there's a pretty severe information drought between Toy Fair and SDCC. I would expect to see Venom stuff, Gamerverse 2, and Rogue's set within the next few weeks, and probably at least a Spider-Man wave and Dawn of X shortly thereafter.
