    Marvel Comics Toy Sightings/Hauls

    Not sure what's going on at HTS, but as of this morning all the recent Marvel Legends stuff, Sp//der wave, Apocalypse wave, Monster Venom wave is all gone. Not "Out of Stock," but GONE, as in not even on the site. No Wolverine Riders sets or anything. The Rail Authority set isn't even showing.
  2. Wasn't Agent Liberty a good guy? Oh wait, he's a gument man. Their evil... except the DEO. God, these idiots have no idea what they're doing, do they?

    That's an embarrassment of riches compared to my local Walmart. One dust covered Tombstone (which just now struck me as strikingly appropriate), a Songbird, an Iron Spidey which I suspect was a return from another store, and a Proxima Midnight. These are mixed with a couple of two and a half year-old DC Multiverse figures in an attempt to fill the gaping void that is the Marvel Legends pegs.

    Walmart's new corporate slogan everybody!
  5. The Shipp Flash is listed on Amazon for 24.99... but that price is exclusively for Prime suck... uhh... members. So, they're not even pretending to be anything other than scalper central anymore?

    High in the upper 90s, heat index of 100+. No hunting for Mamma Mako's favorite son today. My nearest Walgreens looks promising though, so I'll make a run there when the sun goes down. Wish me luck.

    ... and some days the bear gets you. After receiving no shipping confirmation for almost 4 days, I contacted the seller. Turns out, despite the title, pictures, and description all indicating I was getting a full set, the Elektra figure is not included. Kinda sucks, but the guy did agree to cancelling the order and gave me a full refund, so no harm no foul in my book. Looks like its its back to BBTS for the Sp//der wave.

    Got tired of waiting and decided to make a bid on an ebay set of the Sp//der wave. Whoever bid after me decided to make a fight out of it and literally took me all the way up to my max bid... then gave up. If they had gone one more cent, I would've lost it. Now, instead of waiting for BBTS to get their allotment God knows when, my set should be here next week. Some days you get the bear...

    DC Hauls

    Up to you, but I'd keep Jessica. While not exactly an A-lister, Two-Face is one of Batman's big bads. It's a no-brainer we'll get him again in some form or fashion. Jess on the other hand is your typical SJW flash in the pan character. We won't see her again... at least in mainstream figure form.

    Normally, I would've never preordered. Unfortunately, distribution in my area is ridiculous of late.

    Finally broke down and pre-ordered the Sp//der wave from BBTS. I'm considering doing the same with the Apocalypse series. Jury's still out on the Monster Venom series. The price is a little steep for a 6 figure wave... especially when I only consider 2 of them (Spider-Ham and Typhoid Mary) must haves.
  12. GOSH YES!!! ABSOLUTELY! There's nothing I look forward to more in a streaming service than the opportunity to give them even MORE money. Mattel already learned we are neither sheep... nor stupid. If DC wants me to sign up for their streaming service, they need to convince me their shows won't suck. Save the shiny bobbles and carrots on a string for the next jack-@$$.

    Robin Williams once said : "You know you're in trouble when you violate your own standards before you have a chance to lower them." Well, with money from a very good business week burning a hole in my pocket, and NOTHING on the pegs anywhere in the great state of Arkansas, I violated my own standards... TWICE. First, I ordered a KO Pizza Spidey off Ebay to replace the one I auctioned off months ago (really all I wanted were the hands for my Retro Spidey). There goes rule Number 2 in my book: Never buy knock offs. Second, I swallowed my pride AND sense of propriety and ordered a Mysterio off Amazon. Yes, I know feeding the scalpers is NEVER good policy,* but at least I'll finally have my Lizard in my hot little hands soon.** * That's rule Number 1. ** Yes, semi-racy wordplay does take some of the sting away from a nearly 100% mark-up...
  14. 60 to 100 bucks... for that!?! Gouge those prices any higher and they'd have to change their name to Mattel. Go to Target, they have an entire isle of DC characters done in cartoony style for less than 10 bucks a pop!!! Yeah, I get these are con exclusives, but at least when Hasbro/Marvel tacks on that 100 dollar sticker, you're getting 5 figures... actual action figures. So technically, you're paying less than at retail.

    "The Flash" Discussion Thread

    Seriously!?! Another Laurel? How messed up is it that outside of those few times Gregg and company perved out to having her shot, stabbed, beat-up, tied-up or kidnapped, Laurel has had more to do AFTER they killed her off than she did in the almost four years she was a series regular/female lead on Arrow? Then again, if it weren't for Katie's surprise visit, I probably wouldn't have made it through this episode. ("Thinking Caps?" REALLY!?!) Well played, Gregg, well played.
