  1. Even when it ships, be prepared to wait two weeks. Not sure how they're sending these (it says Fedex) but it must be the cheapest, slowest option available.
  2. Somewhere in the world, you know some spoiled rich kid owns one of these, has beat the hell out of it, and is complaining to daddy about the loose joints. Thinks is a piece of crap toy.
  3. That is interesting, I honestly had no idea and I consider myself pretty well-read in the comic world. I do like the figure but I already have the new MCU one on pre-order and I try not to 'double-up' on characters as much as possible. 😕
  4. There's almost no benefit to being "Pulse premium" or whatever they're calling it now, aside from the free shipping on single figures. I'm a non-paying Pulse member and still get free shipping on $50 and above, like most other sites. No problems today buying the Pulse "exclusive" Excalibur 3 pack. The few times during that first year that I was able to order truly exclusive items (as in, when I was paying for membership), the items were sold out within mins so I said screw it. Pulse is a decent place to buy if you don't mind waiting a month or two longer than other distributors. In fact, there's really no reason at all going through BBTS unless you just want your stuff super fast and are willing to pay more for it. My current purchasing method: Pre-order everything I want through Pulse and then cancel individual figures if I find them cheaper/on sale faster than Pulse. I never miss out on a figure that's hoarded that way and still minimize spending. In most cases, I end up saving $20-40 on a set because it takes that long for Pulse to fulfill my order and I've already picked up a few figures $5-10 off by the time they ship.
  5. Just what I need another Wolverine... Might as well throw a Deadpool in there too.
  6. You're not following the same logic here. What I'm saying is, and this applies to most products, if you're going to sit there and screw around with it until it starts to loosen up, don't be surprised. How many people here do you think actually *play* with these figures versus how many pose them once or twice and then they stay on a shelf for months or years? No one is saying you shouldn't be able to pose them. But if someone is sitting there on cam for 20 mins flexing the wrist back and forth, over and over again and then it finally looses some of it's rigidity--congratulations, you just broke your figure. It didn't "come loose", you made it that way. I just want to make sure that distinction is clear. A lot of people will say "My figure was loose right out of the box" but neglect to mention that they spent two days creating dioramas with it and that their kid happened to play with it for a few hours. There is no Marvel Legend that, upon repeated flexing and posing, will continue to stay rigid and perfectly posable forever.
  7. Most likely. I haven't seen a Pulse exclusive NOT restock at least once or twice. Especially the 'builder' figures.
  8. There's a little more nuance to the process than that. First of all, it is *always* better for a toy manufacturer to under-product and sell out rather than be stuck with unsold stock. Second, for anything non-exclusive, they are contractually obligated to only sell a certain number of the product themselves, as it undermines sales for other retailers. Heck, even exclusives are sometimes outlined in broader contract terms; they want to make carrying their toys as appealing as possible for major retailers--it equates to FAR more than they could ever move independently and on the Pulse website.
  9. If they really are loose right out of the box, that's obviously a problem. But I know some people will open ML figures up, pose them for hours and effectively loosen them up themselves...then complain about it. Heck, just reading some of the Amazon reviews is enough to make me smh; these aren't toys meant to be smashed around and beaten up. Even on the Sentinel review videos, I can't help but to cringe a bit when watching owners display joint articulation, literally working the joints a dozen times and then posing them 20 different ways. You buy it, unbox it (or not), display it and leave it alone. Any figure or product in general with a moving joint is going to wear down. Especially when it's three feet tall, made of plastic, and supporting a decent amount of weight.
