  1. check my local target and funny thing is even The peg warmers are gone. But did find a hydra and aim solider at a 24 hour walmart
  2. True I sometimes call but it's been hit or miss for me and my bro law tells me that the stock number isn't always right. I think I'll keep checking ebay until I find a sale that is close to my area that way I know it must be in one of my stores. Can't go hunting more than once a week ,also I think I over did it today. I'm just gonna stick to places near by on my way to and from work. They are taking forever to restock. I did see one target had 4 pegs for each.
  3. Which ones you going to . I will be trying to go to the Arlington, tyler, norco, eastvale, fontana, and redlands. You are probably looking for Toxin and spidergirl. Me to. I could try to pm u with news of any wave 2 at those locations with time. If I see any extras of Toxin and Spider girl I can give u a heads up. Went to Montclair, Pomona, Upland and Covina with no luck at any of those. so 4 hours and half a tank later and nothing. eBay is looking better and better Lol

  5. Wow I've never seen so many pegs full. Just need spider girl, Toxin, 2 aim guys, black widow and winter solider. Might get movie cap. I refuse to get these on ebay unless it was priced reasonably. I wish all of us wouldn't buy these on ebay and have the scalpers choke or lower prices. I don't know how they make a decent profit. Gas cost, time, ebay chargeing u . I mean even if you sell spider girl at 60$ you minus about 21.50 (taxes varying) 15$ about of gas or more if you drive every day , ebay charge of 3$ and paypal taking another 3. What is that a 5$ profit???. If it was even 10 or 15 dollars profit it doesn't seem worth the trouble. I knew one scalper that was on disability from the post office but even with government aid the profits seem like chump change. Unless you sell for like 120$.
  6. We know that Hasbro understands the concept of troop building. Looking at their Star Wars and GI Joe franchises, they know that there is money in people wanting more than one figure. Yet, for some reason, they struggle getting more troop builders out there for Marvel Legends. They used to do well with MU. I have several AIM troops and Skrull soldiers. I have about 10 Hand ninjas. I was able to scoop up a couple of Soldiers and Henchmen 3-packs at a decent price. Now they just make it impossible. Even with their Star Wars Black 6". What makes more sense, two Stormtroopers, or one Stormtrooper and a Han Solo (that most people already have?) I think hasbro treats Marvel Legends like the "red headed step kid" Every comic con I've been to the hasbro panel has all these great plans but by next year they end up explaining what went wrong on canceled figs and distribution, then they promise positive changes and then the cycle repeats. I've talked to Jesse Falcon once when he was doing the great comic legends toy line and he made it seem to me that Hasbro ( higher ups) do not really have ML as any priority.
  7. Cool, only thing is all my wal, tar, and tru just filled their pegs with wave 1&2.
  8. Love these especially Hulk. All except Hulk use hasbro's new diluted plastic formula, this is more obvious in the limbs. Hulk uses a heavier thicker plastic, like the old Marvel Legends, this could explain why Hulk is 1 per case, possible fears of over production and Hulk becoming a peg warmer (which never happens , even the Marvel Universe Hulks sell quick). The new plastic is that bad just know that the figs might not survive being left in the California son for a few hours lol. Hulk is so good of a fig that they could of done 3 per case and it would still fly off the shelves. got lucky and got him as they were reseting, minutes later another dude came up and snatched up singles of the rest.
  9. So, been to 15 walmarts and only one had Thor, IM, and cap, the others did not even have them in their systems, and I found out that hulk is one per case, WTF!!!!!!!!!, does anyone know,they just starting to be realesed or are we close to the end????, I really hate the hunt thats why I get most of stuff thu subscriptions or a good deals on ,amazon I wish I could just order thease at a normal price and have to deal with stupid employees gas prices and loss of time just to find nothing in the end
  10. Where did you find these? TRU, I was lucky That the lady held them for me. She said 3 guys cursee her out, cuz they saw it on hild, probably scalpers LoL
  11. I've only seen to normal sets.and now nothing, thinking of going Online
  12. Loved sticky fingers as blade the series was great. If they did.another movie.I would want him
  13. He's perfect size to me. In marvel select I usually only get the big characters, cuz they fit in with my MLs. I think colossus is supposed to be 7ft-8ft in his metal form right?
  14. I agree, he looks great regard less of reusing old parts. Look here are the facts all toy companies reuse parts it's just makes sense if they did not they would have to charge a lot more and or go out of business. Also the new marvel legends feel like they use a diluted plastic, they are lighter and they have clunkier joints when compared to the old MLs, but they look great and so far have not broke from posing. We probably will never get back to the time when MLs were big, solid hard plastic, smooth joints, large scale , and multiple accessories. One improvement that has gone up instead of down is the paint quality, and face sculpts. Good example is the old toy biz black widow was made of a strong hard plastic but the sculpt and paint was crap, the new hasbro two pack is perfect with the only down side is being the plastic and less joints.
