  1. The birthday club ones and or the spend 50 or more and 15% off. I got them in the mail.
  2. It looked like my store got 2 cases both being varirents. Or maybe someone bought up all the normal ones
  3. Found them in Cali. man feels good not to pay 100$ for one. Stick that "buy it now"
  4. i'm not calling anyone anything. a scalper is a scalper. I'm not calling this guy or anyone here , a scalper. I was talking about scalping in general. All I was saying is I, like many here find it irritating that after trying to squeeze in some time looking around at a couple stores , it sucks when one guy buys up all the stock then sells them. Some people here are ok with that, and maybe if that happened to them after a long 12 or 36 hour shift, they come to a store and see one dude clean out all the stuff , maybe they would be like "oh well" and if that guy offered to sell them stuff for 3 to 4 times the original price maybe they would buy it. I don't argue with people on the internet, only face to face where there is an outlet and usually only when I'm trying to make a point to a friend or another loved one. Everyone here is free to their opinion, and can buy or sell what ever they want. Some people feel irritated about other people's irritation towards scalping. If you want to get mad about other people getting mad about something then ok. Unless it's in my area then it really doesn't effect me. Good luck to everyone.
  5. wait, you would actually expect someone to put a $55 item on ebay for $38 (shipped)? Lol no i was talking a out the 2 packs That would be nice if you would do the same thing, but as an eBay seller it would not be a smart thing to do. At that price, with tax I would've paid about $31. Then to list would cost $.75. Buy it now fee is 12% ($3.60) and of course paypal is 2.9%+.$.35 (of the total paid) ($38=$1.45). At $30 + $8 shipping you are paying $5.80 just to sell the dang thing and now you've just LOST money. You'd have to sell it for about $38 just to break even! I would almost guarantee nobody, "scalper" or not would list them as you suggested. True , did not take the ebay fees into account. Just pissed that I work so much and the thought of finally being able to stop at a store only to find that some pig bought up all the stuff just to make a buck pisses me off

  7. Maybe the price will slow scalpers. the 2 packs usually stay around. I hate scalpers, I have at least five in the area. I've gotten into arguments with them , cuz I 'll call them out. Did you guys see the you tube video about this scalper who finds 3 Galactus and automatically says he's going to put them on ebay marked up. unless you put them up as "buy it now" for 29.99 plus 8.00 or so for shipping , you are a scalper, cuz putting them low and knowing full well that the bid will go up is borderline scalping. We see a great toy, they see a great profit.
  8. Man you guys all forgot the fantastic four movie Doombot. I found my dragonman at rite aid.
  9. Funny I just set up my shield army. I use the "dc universe" blue stands i bought fro matty online.
  10. only the packaging is exclusive to SDCC. he will be released at retail in a regular box (rather than the SDCC exclusive MU card back). oh good to know, cuz every marvel fan must get this. There will be a variant darker one too ill be picking both of them up cant wait to spend some money I probably will to, damn I need a bigger room lol
  11. I think it's supposed to be his nephew. I say this because he looks more like the nephew age wise and the fact that Thor clone is damaged, Cuz in the comics his nephew destroys the clone/robot. When bill faced the clone he did not so much as scratch the clone before he got canned.
  12. I will keep my expectations low, so when things do come back I'll be doubled surprised lol. Hasbro can do great ML figs, the Iron man 1&2 figs and the 2 packs are fing prefect. War machine let alone is one of the best mls ever, better I would say then the toy biz ml one ( I have both)
  13. only the packaging is exclusive to SDCC. he will be released at retail in a regular box (rather than the SDCC exclusive MU card back). oh good to know, cuz every marvel fan must get this.
  14. It's very nice and well worth it. It was sold out at sdcc and web site is now your best shot, unless you pay a vendor 150$ lol. It's bigger all around and include lights and dialogue. Its stands up easier to.
  15. Oh my God dude you read my mind, that's exactly the way I feel about weddon and Norton. Norton was the best banner (not counting bill bixpe) I say give norton what he wants lol. What I hate the most about weddon is he really doesn't get the "tough guy asskicker thing", Ironman and Hulk are very Alpha male type characters and Ultimate cap. His guy characters are kind of girly and his tough characters are villains. His type of hero is "Scott Pilgrim" and mine are "Rambo" lol, plus I'm going to hate seeing all his friends make cameos, it's distracting from the story, it's hard to immerse yourself into a movie or show when it's the same weddon cast your seen sine 1998 lol comparing rambo and pilgrimm, legendary.lol. i feel the same. well in a way i hope that sarah michelle gellar comes and makes a cameo... since buffy i am still in love with her lol. I do love that buffy
  16. You will have to show me some actual proof that DCUC do great, cause I don't by it. I can only go by that a company would not put in the money and time and effort for a failing line. on the web site their sets always sell out in a decent time, wave 5 (which was a wal-mart exclusive wave ) sold out on matty in minutes. they have waves and waves planned, and there are no sighs of them going away anytime soon. I mean hasbro releases the iron man 2 6inch figs and they sell out, with people wanting more. You know qc going down (toybiz) or stuff never getting released (hasbro). I think most people can agree that DCU is successful. I say they at least have 2 years or more. but obviously I don't have matte'ls numbers, I can just go by the signs.

  18. DCU does great and they are like 40% b listers lol. I know motu and dcu have hassles , but it's always been that way. DCU can be hard to find sometimes but wave 13 and 12, and 11 have been easy, I live around 3 trus 5 targets and like 8 wal-marts so it is usually not that hard. If DCU can be successful with mostly unrecognizable characters ( to kids) then ML does not have an excuse. I have a few MU and i can't wait for Galactus but hasbro has mostly given up with ML, I mean the Iron man 2 toys 6 ich are great especially War mac, but they were in stores for like 3 weeks and then nothing, they sold fast I wasn't even able to grab a suitcase IM, so there is a market for them.
