I've pretty much skipped most of the BAF waves since GOTG2...just haven't been in the mood..buttttt that Thing...he's definitely mines when he hits the shelf...that fig loooooks Great....I skipped the rest of the Fantastic 4 & I've made my peace with that......I could use a DeathHead or whatever that weird Alien looking predator dude's name is with the space dreadlocks....if anyone is selling for slightly Five Above I'm interested....haven't seen any figs round here in a bit...just a cool looking Gwenpool but I couldn't pull the trigger on her....

It looks like a helpful gent from the online community is going to hook me up with a Thing.  Nice to have that one take care of.

I'm seeing reports of Magik popping up already, so I guess my Walgreens trips are still not done.

I don't know why I haven't hit a Walgreens in a few days...there's one 3 minutes from my house & one across the street at work....nope still just a glutton for Ebay & Amazon punishment...I even spotted Storm ML at Target today...she looked great but my money was earmarked for Theee Ben Grimm...the Hulk has been waiting for a rematch from back in the old 90s Toy Biz days.....No Thing for now but I did see that ML Storm & a few others I haven't seen before. No Multiple man yet though..Magneto looked cool but I think I have a at least 2 of him already lol...at Gamestop I did happen to spot the AIM 2 pack!!! it was $50 so it would be almost $56 & some change...I'm gonna wait for a coupon or money to rain down on me or perhaps a sale....but Just a heads up....They marked the 12" Black DeadPools down to $37, the Rainbow Deadpool packs are $45 now. 12" ML Black Panthers are now $44......I'll let your Aunt Petunia know if I see ole Ben....probably out there skulking around somewhere.....

Paid a return visit to my nearest Walgreens. Still no joy in Muddville. It'll come though, just have to be patient.

On the upside, got my shipping notice from Megalopolis.Toys. Bishop, Omega Red, Wolverine-23, Poison and Scream are on their way.

Finally got my Dr. Octopus preorder from EE although they didn't shipped the other 2 figures I had preordered and so they got me good with the shipping, this is why I prefer Amazon. Speaking of Amazon I ordered Scarlet Spider from them so that's one less from that wave.  Target put the 10th Anniversary sets on clearance so I got the Cap/Crossbones 2 pack which is the one I really wanted.

UPS delivered my order today. If I didn't say it before, big thanks to JayC and his contest.

That's a good haul, besides Typhoid and maybe Spider-Ham, Scream is the only other figure from that wave I'm even remotely interested in. Congratulations on winning the contest.

Yeah, I guess this has been my month for luck. A couple days after ordering those, I found Chickpool and Xpool on Amazon for considerably below SRP (doesn't happen often, but it DOES happen). Not only that, but my client is adding a nice little bonus to my check today.

I'm probably pushing it, but I'm gonna go for the hat-trick and hit the local Walgreens to look for Thing again.

Some days you get the bear...

Nope, still nothing (see what I did there? No THING). I haven't actually checked EVERY Walgreens in the Central Arkansas area, but I've gone through a large and wide enough sampling that I'm pretty sure ole' Blue eyes hasn't hit here... yet.

Did finally break down and pull the trigger on that Ross/Killmonger set. Movie figure or not, you can never have enough guys in suits.

Also snagged Chillpool at a Walmart, so not a total loss.

I hear you, I'm starting to think that if I want the Thing figure I may have to overpay.

Won't lie, I've considered going that route myself. But no. If the Has' wants me to buy it, they'll put it in stores where I can find it, and in numbers large enough that I have a fair shot.

I will sell... no scratch that, I will BURN my other Fantastic Four figures before I'll give one red cent to a scalper to finish the set.

Of course, Walgreens hasn't let me down yet, no reason to think they'll start now.

Done. I ordered it off Ebay a couple minutes ago. Paid ten bucks more than at retail, but for that ten bucks, I bought my freedom. I don't have to go back to Walgreens two or three times a week to hunt for a figure I know isn't gonna be there.

I don't know why every Walgreens in the state of Arkansas dropped the ball on this one figure, and I don't care. For a mere ten bucks, I don't have to worry about it. I'd call that a fair trade.

YES! Thing is in hand! (snicker)

The trips to empty Walgreens, Ebay mark-up, post office delay (we really gotta crack that Transporter technology thing), it was all worth it. This figure is what happens when a company brings its A-game.

The vintage wave Wasp is beautiful!  Mini Ant Man is also a bonus since I can never have too many of those for my "growing" effect.  This one fits perfectly in between my smallest and third smallest Ant Mans.

It's an exceptional figure.  He's going to be high on everyone's top ten of the year, I don't see how he couldn't be.

With Thing and Magik out of the way, the Retro Series 2 figures not yet having reached saturation, and not being quite ready to drop a dime on the HYDRA and AIM sets, I decided to take advantage of the brief lull in my ML collecting to fill a long-standing hole in my collection.

I hit ebay and managed to track down an MOC ML MOJO Series Falcon for a VERY reasonable price. Always kinda regretted selling off my original one, and since the Has' is dragging their heels with getting us a new one, I decided to correct my mistake.

Granted that funky TB articulation makes him look like a black version of the nursing home ghost from "The Unborn," but I still love that figure, and have a soft-spot for that classic Falcon costume.

Gamerverse Spidey arrived sometime this week. Honestly, between the cold from Hell and the brief respites provided by over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, my ability to gage the passage of time has gotten a little whonky. No idea what day it arrived. Great figure though. Might even be a worthy successor to Pizza Spidey.

I have the "modern" variant of this figure.  I wanted this one because the wings are bigger.  But I want to track down a classic one because I'm a "classic look" kind of guy.

So I found a classic TB Falcon on ebay loose with the wings stripped off, no accessories.  Basically a fodder figure.  This is fine with me because my plan is to swap out the arms from my modern Falcon.  It's listed for $15 OBO.  I offered $8.  $5 for the seller, $3 for shipping in a bubble mailer, but I got declined.  The search continues.

I paid $25 MOC. Of course being a ToyBiz figure the left hip was broken coming out of the package. The seller was cool enough to offer a $15 partial refund, and I MacGyvered a new hip joint using the hip from a Face-Offs Iron Man. Basically, I ended up with a "mostly" new Falcon for 10 bucks. Not bad.

I found the Marvel Legends 12-inch Hulk at Ross the other night for $14.99. I almost choked...

Congrats, Devilbat, that's an awesome find, I only have Cap and Black Suit Spidey from that line but from what I have seen in pictures that Hulk is a thing of beauty.

Thank you! Yes, it looks awesome in hand...and it weighs a ton. I’d love to get my hands on the Iron Man and Thor from this line, so I can at least round-out a core Avengers mini-collection...

Keep checking Ross, I have seen people in Facebook post that they found the Thor there too. As for Iron Man it can still be found for less than retail but not as good a price as these ones on Ross.

Finally got tired of waiting for ANY store in my area to stock ANYTHING, so I broke down and ordered Kree Sentry Captain Marvel off Ebay. At 21.99 it's the smallest mark-up I'm going to be able to get away with, so there's that.

On a related note, Amazon Prime better hang on to their selection of martial arts movies, cause they aren't winning any points from me for action figure selection or pricing structure.
