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.

. . . and not two hours later the same figure is back on Amazon for 19.99.

Typical.

COOL! Virtually every action figure I currently want is available on Amazon . . . 

Of course the 19.99 msrp versions with free two-day shipping are mostly "Temporarily Out of Stock," but they do have a wonderfull selection of 30.00 dollar versions of the same figures which should arrive sometime in February.

Funny how that works out, right?

Sadly, the other online retailers are no better. One has great shipping but over-charges for it, another has a decent shipping charge but takes forever and a day; and they all have the mark-up (which increases exponentially with more sought after figures). Don't even get me started on the Ebay blood-suckers.

The only place you really get a square deal is at brick-n-mortar . . . IF you beat the scalpers, repackagers, BAF thieves, fake bar coders, the multi-buyers (gotta have one to open, one to hang on the wall, and one to put toward the kids' college fund), AND the store in question actually stocks anything.

Great little hobby we have here, isn't it?

Those aren't technically Amazon, those are just 3rd party vendors using Amazon to sell stuff.

True, but there is something to be said for taking responsibility for what goes on on your site, especially if it carries that "Fulfillment ny Amazon or "Prime" notice.

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.

Aww, man...I jumped the gun last night and bought one on eBay for $24.94. I thought that was a pretty good deal, but I would have loved to find one at Ross for even cheaper...

Thanks for letting me know, though, Belmont!

FINALLY!!! Found the Captain Marvel wave at my local Walmart. Two Captain Mohawks, a Grey Gargoyle, Genis-Vell, Yon-Rogg. No Fury, no Bomber jacket. 

Didn't wanna spread myself to thin, so just snagged Rogg and Vell.

Congrats, Mako! I walked into a Gamestop awhile ago and snagged a Marvel Legends Captain America vs. Crossbones two-pack on clearance for twenty bucks...it was sitting in the clearance section with a $40.00 price tag on it, but the guy behind the counter said everything on clearance was half-off the yellow clearance sticker price...which was odd because that's what I thought the regular price was, but anyway. I was thrilled to say the least...

I also scored a "bomber-jacket" Captain Marvel, regular Captain Marvel, and Nick Fury, also at Walmart. These figures seem to get better and better with every wave...

Picked up the rest of the Captain Marvel wave, except for Fury. last week. Ordered Fury off Amazon. Now I just have to track down the Kingpin wave.

I've still yet to see hide nor hair of the Black Panther or Retro 2 waves.

Both my Walmart and Target have the Captain Marvel waves they both have the same figures, seems that Nick Fury and Bomber jacket Carol are the most sought after. I thought this wave would be more abundant considering the hate both it and the movie are getting.

New to the community! Glad to see that finding waves in the wild is just as difficult across the country as it is here in NC. Still no sight of the Kingpin or 2nd Black Panther waves... never even sniffed the X-Men 3rd wave! Sucks!

Finding things in the wild has just been too tough lately.  I have been able to find all online well before they start showing up in stores in my area.  

 

Except for Gamestop.  Gamestop has really been hitting it hard lately which is great for them, but their prices are just a bit high for my tastes.  A good sale now and then makes that better.

Na, the line isn't getting any more hate than any other MCU-heavy wave ever gets. Same with the movie.

I'm new here too! What's up guys? I must admit that I've been somewhat lucky in my ML collecting. Finished both the Captain Marvel and Black Panther waves. Almost done with the Kingpin wave too. Getting Silver Sable and Red Goblin in the mail tomorrow. They were on amazon for regular price last Friday.

Target put the Deadpool wave on clearance so I was able to score the last 2 I was missing and finally complete Sauron.
