    I envy you...Still waiting for Jean to bring her talents to the land down under.

    I had this set pre-ordered, but cancelled my order when I found it over the weekend.  GameStop is typically the best bet to find sets like this in the wild.  Do you guys have GameStop or anything like that is Australia?  I live in Colorado and I complain about finding stuff like this weeks after everyone else does on the East and West coast, but it would suck waiting month after month for stuff to hit retail outlets in other countries.

    That looks pretty sweet man!! Congratulations!!! You've got some Star Wars too!! I wish I'd jumped on the Tie Fighter when I had the chance!!

    I passed on the Tie Fighter when it was down to $25, but I was just picking up the Black Widow and Ghost Rider rider sets along with a few other figures and didn’t want to drop another $25.  I’ve regretted that one, but often wonder where the heck I would have displayed it.

    These were new in box, on a peg. These kids' (and honestly most decent retail thieves') strategy is to have one or two of them tie up the staff with questions as a diversion while the others run out with something. I think they only got Iron Man and Thor, but they were the 80th anniversary versions, so they're $5 more than typical Legends. I wasn't there at the time, and I don't let my staff chase shoplifters because they can get in serious trouble if things aren't done perfectly by the book, and it's better to unambiguously have policies that don't risk their safety, but it still stings.

    When I was a kid working at a supermarket in FL in the mid 80’s the store would announce some code and you dropped everything and ran for the door and jumped whoever the guy in front of you was jumping.  It got pretty crazy sometimes with 8-10 stock guys holding people down and chasing shoplifters.  It’s way too dangerous these days and not to mention the lawsuits they would hit you with.  I agree with you about not having your staff chase them down.  It’s not worth the hassle or getting shot over catching shoplifters.

    I have been trying to get one around Jacksonville, FL area. Yesterday I walked into the Gamestop by my house and when I asked about the Punisher War Machine the guy who works there said they didn't know what I was talking about.

    Out of curiosity I call that same Gamestop today, somehow the guy remembered who I was, and he tells me they had them yesterday but sold them before I got there. I told them wth, they said yesterday they didn't even know what it was. This guy is a freaking liar. To finish it off he says "we will not get any more of these".

    I wish I had Gamestops as nice as yours with honest people.

    I am lucky, they have a few very nice helpful reps.  I stop in about 2-3 times a week to look around and buy quite a few figures from them so they see me often enough.  This is why I buy so much from them since they are helpful and they just about always have what I am looking for without having to drive to a dozen Walmarts and Targets.

    Man I really hope when I get back to the city I can get one of these, been hearing alot about scalper jerk types buying multiples just to flip for lucrative prices online, and I really want this figure. I am kinda getting tired of seeing all of these people hoarding figures, buying multiples to flip and being all unapologetic about it, I;ve seen alot of it lately

    still wonder if anyone in Canada has seen a Dani Moonstar

    I despise scalpers as well.  I occasionally resort to eBay as a last resort, but sometimes end up waiting it out to see if they drop in price over time.  I got lucky with WM Punisher with the GameStop rep calling around looking for one to reserve for me.  I still haven’t seen Emma or Dani in Walgreens yet.  I like both, but not really an absolute must have that I would pay exorbitant prices.

    I tried, I swear i did. I just couldn't bring myself to buy Cannonball this afternoon, no matter how bad I wanna complete Wendigo.

    Maybe once I get all the other figures . . . yeah that's it, when I get everyone else.

    I felt the same way so I bought legs on eBay and waiting for them to come in next week.  I like Cannonball and still have the old ToyBiz one with the vest falling part.  I debated getting Paladin so I could use his bottom torso to make a complete Cannonball to give him legs.

    To me the big question is: is it better than last year?  Both were incredible, but does ‘18 or ‘19 take the cake?

    19 is definitely the winner for me.  I’ve been collecting since the old Toybiz days and I can’t recall a year like this with so many releases that are most haves.  I am not a collector that has to have every figure in a wave, but I have more BAF this year than I have ever had in previous years.  I feel like Hasbro has stepped up their game this year.
