  1. Wow, I had to stop checking the Target website for a while because, y'know, actual life stuff. Finally got around to checking after the pre-order had been up for two whole hours... and I still got him! Couldn't believe he was still available.
  2. I think a repainted Modular Iron Man with more vibrant red and yellow colors is a lock. I would also expect a classic Whiplash/Blacklash figure, and some form of The Mandarin. I would also hope for Madame Masque and a First Appearance or Golden Avenger Iron Man, the classic comic Mark 1 either in gray or gold (and once they do one, I'm sure they'll repaint it in the other color later on).
  3. Ordered Firelord and one Sentinel from Pulse. Waiting for Bag Man to become available.
  4. Sorry if somebody else mentioned this, but wasn't a previous tease a soft-goods jacket? And now Ryan is begging for Gambit without the jacket? Could maybe the animated style Gambit have a soft-goods jacket so it's fully removable?
  5. Good reveals. Definitely getting the retro Sentinel... maybe a couple of them. Also definitely getting Bag-Man and Firelord. It was cool to announce a retro card Iron Man line, but now that line has to come out this year, right? Because Hasbro is going plastic free packaging by the start of 2023. So whatever retro card Iron Man (and possibly Ghost Rider) figures they have planned must come out in the next seven months.
  6. Looks excellent. Mole Man is one of my most-wanted villains right now.
  7. Regardless of how we feel about windowless packaging, we must assume this will kill the nostalgia-fueled retro-card and anniversary lines, right?
  8. Since I don't care at all about packaging, I'm all for this. They can ship figures in white boxes with the names printed on the side for all I care. On one hand, I feel bad for the collectors who keep the figures in box. On the other hand, if it's a choice between helping the environment even a fraction or sacrificing this hobby, peace out, toys!
  9. Disappointed that the new Doc Ock in the two pack with Silk doesn't have bend-e-wire tentacles, but I found it interesting that Dwight said they're exploring ways to get those to us. Hopefully they'd be available without having to buy another Doc... maybe a much-desired accessory pack...?!!
  10. That retro Lizard could end up being my favorite figure of 2022. He's my favorite Spidey villain and they did him exactly the way I wanted. Also looking forward to first appearance Spider-Man and anniversary Toad. Also... if anyone wants Knull but does NOT want Venom, let me know and maybe we can work out a trade or split the cost.
  11. Captain America arrived today, a day later than expected, but still good to have him.
  12. Looking at the listing on Pulse, it looks lije a case of 6: two Things, two Thors, one Widow, and one Goblin.
  13. Is it me, or are these facial paints/sculpts not good? They're not retro Sue Storm bad, but they look pretty bad to me. Also, they don't really look like Jean from the cartoon. Wasn't that the point?
  14. I wonder if they'll bother to change it. The collection was Sold Out briefly this afternoon and now it's not. I wonder if that's because they upped the stock or because a whole lot of people like me cancelled our pre-orders with Pulse and got them off other sites.
  15. What the ever-loving hell?!! Hasbro Pulse has the set of four listed as $87.99!!! That means each individual figure is valued at almost $22, or roughly the price of a basic Marvel Legends figure. Why on Earth would they be charging $40 more than other online retailers?!! Do they not want people using Hasbro Pulse anymore?
  16. I wonder why they're only doing Baroness and Lady Jaye for this event, and not Gung Ho and Destro, who are also in the first wave of retro cardbacked Joes.
  17. I had Zemo shipped to my Walgreens store to save a couple dollars. Got the arrival email yesterday and picked him up this morning. As everyone has mentioned already, he's a great figure. I just wish the theme for these exclusives this year was Barons, such as Blood, Mordo, Strucker.
  18. Okay, the bracelet thing--assuming that's where her power comes from in the series-- looks like a mystical artifact, but the fact that Kamala described it as feeling "cosmic" makes me hopeful that it's something like the Quantum or Nega-Bands that other posters have said. Actually, I would be happy if they kept it all in the family and revealed that the bands were something Mar-Vell was tinkering with before the Tesseract. That would connect Kamala to Mar-Vell, which adds more substance to when Ms. Marvel meets Carol Danvers in THE MARVELS.
  19. Quasar also came back briefly last week before going out-of-stock again.
  20. Ordered him at 11 AM and got an email that it shipped to the store at 2:30 PM. This is such a relief and I really, truly hope that this level of service continues. Walgreens exclusives being reliably available is way, way more convenient for me than almost every other kind of store exclusive, so I'm happy. I know that every time the Hasbro guys mentioned Walgreens exclusives for the past year or two, it was met with chuckles of depressed defeat from a lot of us, believing we'd likely never see that figure in stores. A lot of folks called for Hasbro to end their contract with Walgreens. I never wanted that; I just wanted Walgreens to hold up their end of the deal, which they finally are starting to do again. Now I just want to know who's coming up after Jigsaw (I haven't decided if I'm getting him or not).
