    Out of curiosity...why do you care when figures ship lol? As long as your order is locked in and you will get them, the what does it matter? I mean I get everyone likes having stuff when it’s new but i could personally care less when stuff ships lol it will arrive when it arrives. As long as I got my order in, I’m good.

    I won’t be able to get it if it comes later than May. So it’s important for me. Plus, I really like to have things right from the oven

    EE is Hasbros largest distributor and is there only wholesale distributor as well so they get their estimated ship dates directly from Hasbro. To that end, I would trust the dates EE has over anyone else. Also, because of the above, EE will never cancel your orders because their pre-order allocations are locked in from Hasbro. I don’t buy figs on Amazon but I have heard/read countless stories/examples of Amazon canceling pre-orders so there’s that to consider as well.

    Could you tell what EE is please? I’m from Italy and don’t know what’s that :) thank you for the info!

    First off, nice score. I never really have a “hard to find figure” of any given wave because I just order a case of each wave through EE as they go up for order but I definitely know that Cyclops has been a challenge to get for a lot of collectors so congratsz

    To digress briefly, I would urge any/all collectors that pick and choose their legends and/or simply don’t buy full waves/cases, to preorder their personal favorite or hottest 1 per case figure, when the singles go up for order, through EE or other etailers. Hasbro has been making it quite easy as of late by offering the full wave via a case and also as individual singles through the etailer solid case program. There’s ZERO reason to hunt physical retail stores all over gods creation, for the that super in demand 1 per case figure, only to not find it and then pay Ebay prices. If you want to score the rest of the wave below retail price or on sale later, great, but make sure you get that hot figure taken care of via preorder. Case in point, how many collectors wish they would’ve ordered Warlock Wave Cyclops through EE for $21.99 when he was up and before he sold out? Gambit is the 2 per case in the Caliban Wave but you know who isn’t? BEAST (Jubilee for that matter as well). Just go preorder Beast now and save yourself the hassle lol.

    Now...onto answering your question lol. Hasbro does not re-release waves. The ONLY time I have seen Hasbro re-release a wave, since 1995, has been the 40th Anniversary ANH Black Series Vintage Line Wave 2, back in 2017. 

    Furthermore, hasbro rarely straight re-release anything. Spidey Noir and Mysterio from the Lizard wave are definitely a one off style rare scenario. If they would’ve double packed Mysterio from the get go (who knew Mysterio would be MORE popular than Gwenpool...), then a lot of collectors would’ve fared better. I have one on preorder as well as I only have the white head version (which was the mass release version to the US) so I’m hoping this second production run is the green head version.

    What you experienced at Target with the Warlock wave is just a case of the Target distribution center purging out available stock. Theoretically, if the Target DC near you is loaded up with Warlock waves still, then the stores near you will continue to see that wave get pumped out every time one of your local stores gets low on their on-hand Xmen Legends counts. Since my area is the same, i am going to assume that Target ordered a LOT of Warlock because that wave is the only wave that gets shipped to my stores when they replenish. I saw the entire wave, fresh from the case, on the shelves on Christmas Eve a couple months ago, Cyclops was the first figure on the peg lol. I also saw the full wave replenished again, a few weeks back. I have never seen an Apocalypse Wave Figure at my targets for example and I’m not sure Caliban will fare much better from what I can tell, until Target purges their Warlock stock. Again, I only order online so it doesn’t really matter to me what the stores get cause I only go to stores for their exclusives but still, it is lame seeing the same wave get replenished year after year lol.

    I am going to pre order Beast and Gambit , but the release date on Amazon is July 1-st and that’s weird because as much as I know Caliban wave will be released In May.

    I have a question about Re-releases. The Mysterio re-release was announced, and as far as I know this is a first. Two of my local walgreens just received The spider-man homecoming Vulture Baf waves. Then I went to my Target yesterday and found the X-men Warlock Baf wave there! The X-men wave is over 2 years old! Not complaining, as I was finally able to pick up the Jim Lee Cyclops for 19.39 and not the out ragious scalper prices on e-bay. I guess my question is, does hasbro typically re-release waves, or was this a fluke and they were cleaning out their warehouse and came across a case?? 

    Jesus Christ I bought my Jim Lee Cyclops for 69€. You are extremely lucky my friend! Congratulations on Cyclops!

  5. Hello fellows!

    I live in Italy , Milan, and want to ask you where you usually buy action figures. In my case, the most common platform is Amazon, because there are no so many retailers in my city. If you live outside of the USA this topic can be useful for collectors. Now I’m looking forward to start buying from BigBadToyStore because it’s saving money in case you buy a bunch of figures.
