Alright you guys with all this new merch hitting shelves, let's talk about some figures that don't get snatched up right away. For every Retro Storm or Worthy Cap there's a Misty Knight, MCU Wasp, or Gwenpool. Personally, my area seems to be overwhelmed by Talos, Grey Gargoyle and the many Carol variants. Discuss!Previous: >>7691515
Best Venom ML?
>>7701060Ah yes, the Mafex Marvel Legends Venom.
>>7701062You wanted the best Venom. But either ML is fine. The most recent one with the Heddie Brock head should still be somewhat easy to aqcuire. But for real, just get the Mafex.
>>7701058Absorbing Man wave Venom>McFarlane style head>Tongue-out head with green slime>Fists>Claw handsVenom wave Venom>Open mouth head>Eddie Brock head>fists only>symbiote goo neck effect pieceThe latter was more likely to have spottier paint, from what I've seen
>>7701047Pretty much every Walmart and Target in my area has Wasp figures. One Walmart had 7 Wasps, a Malekith and a Nighthawk. That was it.
>>7701140OH NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
>>7701168What about the Marvel Select Venom? I think it's pretty cool
>>7701168Revo is great if you want a monster style Venom. I personally prefer the McFarlane style. But that's just personal preference.
>>7701047>my area seems to be overwhelmed by Grey Gargoyle.Collectors on your area have no taste.
She survived the reset you guys! 9 months and going STRONG!
>>7701181>>7701177>>7701140I’m starting to realize that small states like North Carolina, South, Virginia and others don’t really care for action figures sales. This also happens in small towns where not a lot of collectors are present.
>>7701185They should have slapped some LGBTQ rainbow stickers on the pegs during pride-month, maybe afew lefties would have bought some to support trans-rights.
>>7701140>>7701177The worst part of this is that Wasp and to a lesser extent Malekith and Ant-man were already warming the pegs, and then for some idiotic reason Walmart ordered a shitload more of that wave to promote Endgame rather than order the actual Endgame tie-in wave. It's bonkers.
>>7701251It wasn't just Walmart. It was also places like Target, Walgreens, Best Buy and even JC Penney. I remember that wave being annoyingly difficult to find for me when it originally came out. Then bam it's everywhere a year later. I even bought a second Thor to use for custom fodder.
>>7701060What the fuck is up with these Japs constantly delaying their shitI want venom already
>>7701273Oh yeah wasn't he supposed to come out like in June? What's the deal?
>>7701140Are you in Northern CA? Cuz my Walmart has EXACTLY 7 wasps, 1 malakith, 1 nighthawk.
>>7701047The Black Panther wave pegwarmed HARD in my area, especially this shitty character.For the longest time, there were 3 pegs full of this shit tier nobody. Eventually, they were put in the discount section before disappearing.
>>7701290That's not Nakia though. One a side note>Black Bolt is still on some pegs in my area even after multiple clearancesSome figures are just doomed from the start.
>>7701294You're right, wrong pic.
>>7701290Oddly enough I only ever saw them at GameStop.
>>7701140I usually buy my shit online but the last time I went to Walmart was to hunt worthy Cap>go inside>find toy aisle>place is a fucking mess>nothing but gwen and waspI always assumed that shit was a meme
>>7701192I'm in Virginia but I don't think that's what's going on. Actually the poorer Walmarts have a better stock of action figures which makes sense because families can't afford video games. It looks like there's some kind of reset going on because I've seen a few that got the 90's X-Men wave and the puma spider man wave as well. In my area target is easily the worst for stock. It's either captain marvel or wasp. Nothing else
Picked up Silver Samuel at my local comic place. They mark up MLs by five bucks but in this case I didn't mind, because he's great.
has anyone tried the pick up at store option for stuff like the 80th iron man at walmart? tried it and it was meant to be ready "today" but Isn't
>>7701357I picked up Cap last week that way. I ordered him later in the afternoon and he wasn't ready until the next day at noon. Just be patient. It sounds like they load the big tower thing to be ready at noon.
>>7701360hmm, my thing says after 12 (like you said, noon) but then its like 1:32 and hasn't moved past the preparation stage
>>7701374I got my email that it was ready literally at 12:06pm. If it's passed the order received stage you should be fine.
>>7701290>>7701305In my area, Nakia sold out at a reasonable pace. It was all the non Black Panther movie figs of that wave that peg warmed.The 2nd BP wave was scarce in my area, since the stores overloaded on Captain Marvel waves.I got that Dora Milaje on sale at one of my Walgreens, Killmonger for $14 online from walmart, and Klaue for $16 at a game stop out of town.
Tried to buy Cap last night. These were my only options.
>>7701047every store seems to have a 5-10 carols, a few furys and yon rogg. i've been seeing more wasps in the way back too. i don't understand why they don't put better sales on the shelf warmers. shit like this should be dropped to $10 and then they'd probably clear them out.
>>7701383It took my local Walmarts 3 years to put the 80% shelf-warmer Dormammu wave on sale.
>>7701360>tower thingI've seen those things go up and I don't even know what the fuck this meme machine is.
>>7701389Instead of going to pick up your order from the customer service desk it now waits for you in this giant tower. When the order is ready you get an email with a barcode. The tower has a scanner and you just scan the barcode on your phone and the tower poops out your order. It's nifty.
>>7701382#1 was alright if you didn't buy it you fucked up
>>7701392The paint on them isn't great.
>>7701392So you finally changed the script? "It's not a standard problem" to "so what?" good man, God bless.
>>7701383Typically it boils down to>store being a more rural store and is given less clearance money>store manager denying the toy department any clearance money to make things down themselvesSome things are automatically clearanced company wide but particular things in a wave or series that refuses to sell wont.
>>7701394The other head was bad too, but I only took photos of the extra ones since that's the one I'm more interested in using
>>7701409It's not a standard problem though. It really isn't.
>>7701494You're aware we're discussing Marvel Legends, correct? There's always been figures that are shipped with shitty faces 100% of the time, without any variance.
>>7701500This is a troll post, right? God I hope so, because you're laying down a lot of bullshit there bucko.
>>7701494Boggle eyed Cap is a pretty standard problem though. I see way more fucked ones than not.It's a problem they have in general, outside of the figures that get face-printing.
>>7701502It's nowhere near as bad as you're trying to make it out to be.
>>7701501Did you forget what every female figure's face pre-2016ish looked like? Or did you only get into the series recently? Or are you being intentionally dense? >buckoYou seem very personally invested in the opinions of others. I'd suggest not doing that.
Where were you when you realized fucking PAK's have better QC than Mafex & Marvel Legends
>>7701409What are you even talking about?
>>7701505I suggest that you quit eating dick. It doesn't seem to be doing your mental state any favors.
>>7701521Try a different schtick. Preferably not the one I just used on you.
>>7701507What's going on with that lately? People are talking about hands shearing off at the wrist now and I'm scared to touch anything. I just want toys that don't break.
>>7701047Finally got my euro mitts on 80th Anniversary Iron Man, which is beautiful, but i’ll admit to mainly buying for the head sculpt to pop on the Mezco. I’m in love.
>>7701503Literally every one out of the case at my Walmart was like that.
>>7701494>It's not a standard problem thoughIt pretty clearly is.
Why have they never done a perfect comic Cap? They've put out 6/10s or worse and meanwhile they get obscure niggas like Silver Samurai perfect on the first try.It's especially glaring in the same wave as a perfect Thor and the 15th flawless Iron Man they've done.
>>770167680th Cap IS a perfect Cap. It's a goddamn beautiful figure. That blue on him is perfect.
>>7701683The face is straight out of a 2014 Hasbro wave with its lazy fish eyes, and a face is a pretty important aspect of a figure. Don't kid yourself.
BruhWhy does my Rescue have a camel toe
>>7701684Nah, fuck you asshole. That doesn't stop it from being the best Cap out there.
>7701725>That doesn't stop it from being the best Cap out there.You understand that this statement doesn't suggest positive quality whatsoever, right? A 6/10 figure like the 80th Cap is is a testament to the depressing figures of the character Hasbro has released thus far, not something to brag about.
>>7701731It shows what a dickhead you are, if anything.
>>7701725Fuck YOU, asshole.
why does the autistic cap defender always talk about dicks
>>7701736Nah fuck you cunt. Your sorry ass should just quit collecting all together.
>>7701712Her horny husband designed it.
Finally got a cheap Night Thrasher on eBay for this. Much better.
>>7701382I get it these are supposed to be cheap toys but I will never get why wall-eyed paintjob is acceptable for toys of any price range unless that is the character
>>7701835this thread demonstrates that there's niggas willing to throw a punch over their right to have bad taste and enjoy the walleyes, so it's pretty obvious why hasbro doesn't feel the need to improve
>>7701823not a bad idea
>>7701838I mean with trolls like you around, why would anyone ever improve?
>>7701851What do you think a troll is? These threads have had multiple fish-eyed pics of cap for weeks now
Have we had any good import Black Panthers?
>>7701853Pretty clear that you're a troll.
>>7701823Does the new body have the hole for the back tendrils? It looks pretty good, though.
>>7701177Two of my local-ish Walmarts decided to stock up on Endgame wave one in droves for some reason and now there's a shitload of that wave just sitting there, sans Ronin
>mfw every single Cap I've seen has fish eyes
>>7701886Sure, post more of those giant photos you cretin. That's all you're good at doing is trolling threads with that.
>>7701888Giant photos can be used in bad faith like showing the pixels of a face print or fuzzy paint lines, but they don't change the fact that the eyes are poorly painted and in the wrong directions.
>>7701886Jesus PAK's are better than ML trash. You could get a chink knockoff of one for the same price & get a vastly better figure.
>>7701919At the very least both his fucking eyes are looking in the same direction
>>7701886I just wanna know how this happens, like, is something just misaligned in the painting stage? The single carded Phoenix Jean they did in the Juggs wave had a similar problem, among other figures.
>>7701919Why do you lie on the internet?
>>7701919Why is DCEU Flash repainted as Cap?
>>7701919Is the facemask a part of his skull? There's no human head in there.
>>7701943And Rogue, and Misty Knight, and Scarlet Witch, Moonstone, Dagger, other bitches I'm forgettingThey didn't even fix the fucking Rogue head when they rereleased it with Mystique
>>7701745Huh? Wat u mean?
>>7701943>>7701952It almost feels intentional because it happens so often
>>7701185I love this figure, and bought the first one I saw, because I figured I'd never see it again. Lol.
>>7701872Unfortunately not, due to the new rig on the torso. Could probably dremel one or something, I'm sure.Was also overdue for a new Magneto. Here's a comparison with the last one I bought, circa 2003. Just need a cloth cape.
>Saw some new figures on the pegs at Target. So of course that means people are going to hide stuff.Don't try to hide shit in the toy section because I will find it. This figure is awesome.>>7701521I like Marvel Legends too, but God damn you're taking this way too seriously. You must be trying to scalp these Caps online, because there's no logical reason to defend such an obvious and common defect.
>>7701888Why are you so easy to rile up, subjectanon?
>>7702117>subjectanonSup newfag. Stop throwing around names you hear as you try to fit in. Retard.
>>7702129Why are you so easy to rile up subjectanon/MLfag/babyman?
>>7702146Oof, there you go acting like a fool again. Try again, I'm sure you've got another name in your quiver you can try out. You'll get someone to think you're cool, I'm sure of it!
>>7701951Just like Gambit's
>>7702172Not even like Gambit's
>>7702129You're not a fraction as subtle as you believe you are.You always post and reply to shit the same way, subjectanon.
>>7701382autism is severe
>>7702199You're not a fraction as smart as you believe you are. Because once again, you're wrong. You don't know who anyone is, and any patterns you think you know are fictional. You are shooting in the dark, and missing every time.
>>7701173He looks great but the articulation is pretty awful
>>7701392>>7701494>>7701503>>7701725>>7701745>>7701851>>7701866>>7701888worst poster on this board, no contest
>>7702223Thanks for spamming the thread some more.
>>7702225Thanks for spamming the thread some more.
>>7702234Spam for thanking the more thread
>>7702234>>7702236You guys are autists.
>>7702205No. We all know I'm correct. I do, you do, the entire thread does.Everyone realizes who you are.
>>7701047Let's see...Walmart is stuffed with Wasp, Gwenpool, Polaris, or Malekith.Target is stuffed with Wasp, Beetle, Snake Guy, or Yon Rogg.KMart is stuffed with Blackbolt, Namor, or Tombstone.GameStop is stuffed with SWAT Guy, Sabretooth Jr, or Black Panther.Walgreens is stuffed with Sharon Carter.Toys R Us is...dead...t-thanks Disney.
>>7702242And you're wrong, as ever.
>>7702249You are incorrect. He is correct
>>7702252No, he's not.
>>7702245>kmartI almost did a spittake, I've been so used to the only Kmart I knew of closing down a few years ago that I assumed the entire chain just died like TRU.My local Kmart was so terrible I'm kind of shocked that TRU was the chain to go and not that, I remember mine still had shelfwarming Gundam MSiAs as of five years ago, that place was like a museum snapshot in time that happened to also smell like urine.
>>7701290For the longest time I thought this was just a repackaged version of the first BP wave BAF.
>>7701888You don't have to look particularly close to notice pupils pointing in different directions.
>>7701047Whats the consensus on the target iron man iron spider 2 pack? I found some finally in stock but idk if i should spend 50$ on it
>>7702239At least we're not (You)
Alright I’m gonna take a page out of anon from last threads book and attempt this. Ive never done any advanced painting, so this may be a disaster
>Mystique comes with Lilandra head>Emma comes with classic White Queen headSo this is basically a guarantee that we won't see a full Lilandra or White Queen, right? I'm struggling to think of any instances where we got an alternate head for a specific character/costume and then got that character/costume. Has that happened before?
>>7701251Hasbro is the one who loads up the shippers, blame them.
>>7702363Lilandra was almost assuredly meant as a head swap for Silver Sable, but why they went about this in such a roundabout way, I'll never knowIt's a like Kitty Pryde coming with the classic Onslaught head apropos of nothing other than both being X-men related.
>>7702363Professor X came with a Shadow King alt head for the Kingpin BAF
>>7701823Were there any difficulties in executing this switch up?I want to try it.
>>7702377But that's still a Kingpin figure that can ostensibly used as Shadow King, rather than a dedicated Shadow King figure
>>7702360At least give him an open hand. That's the biggest problem with that retro figure, Bobby doesnt use fists with his powers.
>>7701047Went out to Target tonight not expecting to find much but sure enough a fresh case of the Retro Wave was literally just unpacked. Except I was too late. In the same aisle 2 neck beards had a cart full of figures including 2 storms. They only left silver samurai and iceman. Imagine my shock and disappointment because my fat ass had to stop for a chocolate milkshake at the nearby ice cream stand before I went to Target. REEEEE.
>>7702411>2 neck beards>my fat ass had to stop for a chocolate milkshake at the nearby ice cream stand before I went to Target.Pot calling the kettle black.
>>7702375Was the Onslaught BAF even revealed at that point? I feel like I remember wondering why they gave her the head since there wasn't anything to really use it on
>>7702438It was, though technically it was a Red Skull BAF based on a recent storyline where he takes part of Xavier's brain and basically turns into Onslaught. The Juggernaut wave came a few months later (I think, pretty sure they were at least in the same year) and that Onslaught head was packed in so anyone who already had the Red Skull BAF could use it to have a traditional Onslaught.
>>7701047i like the kitty
>>7702375The lilandra head is such a cop out. Silver Sable's outfit doesn't really even resemble anything she wears other than being the same color. Lame. I do expect they'll eventually at least release a proper version of her in a 3 pack or something.
The Zendaya sculpt is pretty impressive but what’s the best Holland Parker head available?
>>7702530For Marvel Legends? The 80th two pack.
>>7701382>>7701886This is actually a good likeness when you remember Cap was originally modeled after Marty Feldman.
>>7701683how is it perfect with wall-eye paint qc though? I haven't been able to find one without the wall eye. Can you post yours? Did you get a good one?
>>7701863Civil War SHF looked good but that body is too buff for the Black Panther movie look. I'd wait for the MAFEX as far as import BP goes. Otherwise, I thought the Marvel Legends actually was a really good release for the line but if you're looking for one closer to SHF scale, just wait and see for the mafex one.
Such a good year for Xmen. All of these benefit greatly from effects
>>7701067>McFarlane style headLooks more like Bagley to me, probably because of the sharp teeth. Select is undeniably McFarlane.
>>7702580I kinda don't like Iceman
Has there been any news about this marvel select PS4 figure? It looks ten times better then the legends but this is like the only image I can find of it
>>7702627I think there were some from the SDCC display
>>7702630Thanks now I know it has the spider drone and some weird web
>>7702580>>7702583>>7702586No one cares, commie.
>>7702627Just about anything with sculpted details is gonna look better than the ML. I hate how much they phoned in their PS4 Spidey. They learned their lesson and made a new sculpt for the Velocity Suit, but that suit sucked so who cares?
>>7702375>Lilandra was almost assuredly meant as a head swap for Silver Sable, but why they went about this in such a roundabout way, I'll never knowLike >>7702504 said, it's a damn cop out. Silver Sable's figure is pretty accurate to how she looks in the comics, but there is nothing about it other than similar color scheme that relates to Lilandra.
It's really hard to see in this pic, but the Colossus on the right is missing an extra layer of yellow paint on the chest area. It looks really off-putting in person. Be on the lookout when you find it in stores.
I’m gonna be honest, I only bought 80th Anniversary Cap so I could have someone to bully Guardian.
>>7702725>Captain America, more like Captain Puerto Rico >Huh?
>>7702730>What did you say?>N-nothing...>C’mon, spit it out “Maple Leaf”!
>>7702732>....>That’s what I thought, I guess you Canucks don’t have what we call “Freedom of Speech”
>>7702744That was the last straw for Guardian.>No more Mr. Nice Guy! >Oh you wanna get rough? Come on, let’s get rough!
>>7702746>Cyclops: You can do it, Cap! Fight for America’s freedom! >Wolverine: Guardian, if you lose I’m switching teams and joining the X-men. And the rest is history.
>>7702583I think he's great
>>7701047I like the look of Grey Gargoyle (that semi-translucent plastic with the black bits to emulate stone is awesome!), I just don't know anything about him and don't really feel like paying full price for him. I'll for sure snap him up if I ever see him at a discount though.
While the upcoming 3-pack Cyclops is looking cool as hell, is anyone else disappointed we didn't get retooled versions of the "smoking" visor and optic blast heads from the Retro wave Cyke? I love those heads, I just don't really have any place in my collection for an X-Factor Cyclops.
>>7702452How is the Red Onslaught figure?
>>7702285It won't be long now. I think my KMart is the only one left in the county.
>>7702285>>7702866Nah. As of last year, there are reportedly still 360 KMarts open across the US. In fact, there's one real close to me. It's still open but I try not to go there, it's very depressing. Dim lights, super outdated stock, it feels like it's dying. Which it is.I found 1st movie Iron Man toys there a few years ago. Their toy section is like a time machine, but a bad one--it never has any cool old stuff, just bad old stuff that nobody wants.
>>7702935That doesn't actually happen Republitard
>>7702942So there aren't excessively long wait times when Canadians go to the doctor? Coulda fooled me.
>>7702836Yeah I thought that they would give us a blast head and effect sooner than two pairs of sunglasses. Oh well, the Mafex should be out only a couple months after the 3 pack gets released anyway.
>>7702946>the Mafex should be outThat's the thing: I don't actually want to spend a lot of money on Cyclops because I sort of hate Cyclops. He's a righteous stick-up-his-ass little shit. But I want to complete my team, and as long as I am buying him, I want the best possible version of him $20 will buy. To me, that would have included an optic blast effect. But oh well.
>>7702942Is Subjectanon a fucking leaf?AHAHAHA
>>7702582I really do love Select Venom but I'm thinking of buying another figure just to swap his ankles for ones with ankle pivot. He's good as he is but I think a few key articulation changes could make him great. Improved ab crunch, head articulation, and ankle pivot being chief among them. Maybe double jointed knees too if I could find something that could easily work for him.
>>7702945You're easily fooled, just look at what you allow in the government.
Anyone have a list of 80th, I'm not sure what's been announced and what is currently for sale
>>7702990Nobody likes you, so I'm not sure for what reason you're getting on a high horse.
>>7703017Top tier argument ya got there.
o shit boysI got him
>>7703130I'm still hunting for my own Vampire Colossus to no avail.
>>7702640Why are you so obsessed?
>>7702730>Captain Puerto RicoWhat? Is this insulting that the US still engages in colonialism and stripping away the right of groups of indigenous people? or is it insulting Puerto Ricans?>>7702749Cringe
>>7703154Commies are bad and should fuck off.
>>7703154Would you just fuck him already? Your weird obsession is getting creepy.
>>7703156The joke is the figure looks like garbage so he's more like "Captain Country-too-Shitty-to-Become-a-State" than he is "America".
>>7703140Good luck anon. He's nice.
Could anyone provide a size comparison with the ML Hulk (from the 80 years hulk vs wolverine 2 pack) and the Select Juggernaut (and Colossus)?
>>7703192Stop it, retard. Go away.
Seems like the Canadians are here and can’t take a joke, lel.
>>7703358>>>/pol/Fuck off, /pol -tard
OUR WORLD'S ABOUT TO BREAK?
>>7702582I just keep the Marvel Selects one in display along with the ML figures, i like how he looks next to them.
>>7703493That Antman was a mistake. Should have been on the Bullseye body
>>7703493Superhero body needs more traps. That's where the power come from. Lifting civilians? Lifting cars? Throwing bad guy to the ground? It's all trap muscles
>>7703493>that shitty looking toybiz antmanAAAAHAHAHHAHAHAHINGED FINGERS AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHTHE PROPORTIONS AHAHAHAHHAHALOOK AT THE TOP OF HIS HEAD! BAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH
>>7703493nigga it's the retro wave ant manliterally a repaint of the black ant still clogging up walgreens to this day
>>7703493>no Vision>no Scarlet Witch>no C-listers like T'Challa, Black Knight, Hercules, or Julia CarpenterStill not a bad display. I'll post mine in a bit. Found Iron Man at Target yesterday, very hard not to immediately call him my favorite figure of the year. Now, aside from a Hawkeye perhaps, all I need to fill out a "main roster" is the new Hulk. To anyone who has ordered online from Pulse, do they ship your item out the same day or the next? Or is there a delay?
>>7703493>>7703767These are pretty great lineups. I think the Avengers look best in their classic costumes, no matter the lineup. Shame about no Black Panther though
>>7703777Black panther is there you silly goose. Granted hes hard to see since hes a black guy and blends into the darkness unless he smiles and shows his teeth
>>7703791Oh fuck he's right there. Guess all those Black heroes just look the same to meBut yeah, I like my Avengers to look like they're from the 60s, my X-men from the 80s, and my Spiderman from the 2000s
>>7703493>>7703767I can't believe they sculpted the biceps flipped opposite than they should be and even labeled the left and right arm incorrectly on that Ironman.
>>7703664Might be autism.
>>7703664You ok anon?
>>7704043prob forgot to take his crazy pills
>>7704038Man I really like that Marvel Now? All Different? Whatever it was, the Ant Man on the right, wonder if the two pack he's from is still going for decent prices.
>>7704133$36 on BBTS. I don't think that pack moved that much. Should be easy to obtain for cheap. I'm honestly tempted myself but I'm going for a classic look. The retro Ant Man is pretty ass.
big shoutout to walmart for scamming me out of an iron man, did the in store pickup thing and my store sold out of their stock of him and i guess didn't reserve one for me. was meant to be ready two days ago and now it's fucked. guess i should try to get my money back. anyone else had an experience like this?
>>7704154Nothing /toy/-related, but I bought one of those $800 gaming laptops just to test it out, online, and when I went to go pick it up at the store they said I hadda' wait like 2-3 weeks for them to get my "specific" order. You should be able to get a refund if you got a email receipt/code.
>>7704168just got a refund within seconds, they know what went down. might go pick up thor as a consolation prize, but i'm very disappointed by this. went around town looking for iron man and just about everywhere had him but he wasn't on the floor yet.
>>7704033are they all like that? also wouldn't this be a simple fix considering you could pop the biceps off at the joint and swap the hands?
Why are you buying all the latest characters just for the sake of collecting them even if you don't give a shit and/or already have them?For instance Yon-Rogg or Ant-Man : who the fuck needs them for?Nick Fury? You have dozens of those and he's not even a superhero he's a sack of shit.Classic armor Iron-Man, why? You already have hundred billions of them.Think about your secret grail that you wish they make but never released it. This is exactly why. Because you buy all the trendy garbage, they can't make infinite waves so they select the most popular and safe crap because you buy them even more than the children from the general audience and skyrocket their metrics.
>>7704289Well I got the recent Scorpion because I always wanted a classic-ish figure with smaller proportions. Even skimped on all the Mac Gargan Venoms and the old Toybiz Scorpion, so I'm glad the long wait paid off.
>>7704289They'll make Stilt-man and Mister Fear eventually. I'm fairly confident in that.The only time I've had the problem you describe is with the recent Kingpin wave, where I care about the BAF more than any of the individual figures, and he's popular enough for the buying his individual pieces to be less cost effective than buying those figures I don't care about with the pieces.Other than that I've always been able to pick and choose, including buying loose figures from exclusive box sets and shit like that.
>>7704289The 'trendy garbage' is the shit that allows them to make as many waves as they do though. If people didn't buy every spider-man and iron man they make they'd just release less waves, not focus more on c-listers.
>>7704289>This is exactly why.Huh?
>>7704185All of them are like that because they labeled them wrong on the sculpt itself. The biceps should be swapped and from the elbow down, swapping them out will line up the sculpt correctly. With the way Hasbro does the arm pegs, now, it makes things much easier to do as long as you hear everything up.
>>7701047wait i just found this boarddo you guys unironically actually buy toys?
>>7704517>unironically actuallyTime to learn english Cletus.
>>7704517No, I barter for them using an extensive collection of baroque paintings I inherited.
>>7704517Yes, this blue board of ours is all about children's toys.
>>7704517I buy them ironically actually. It's pretty much the same as doing it unironically except whenever I buy one I look towards an imaginary camera and sigh like Jim from The Office.
>>7704517I buy them out of spite.
>>7703664>toybizend yourself...we're not joking
>>7703493I think the Mezco Iron Man looks more like the animated version of EMH, but good job anon
>>7704886Why can't Americans make their own toys?
>>7704517huh? wat u mean?
>>7703154ya seethe bitch?
>>7704289You should probably lock yourself in a closet and die there, you unhappy prick.
>>7704289>Why are you buying all the latest characters just for the sake of collecting them even if you don't give a shit and/or already have them?I'm not
>>7704289>Think about your secret grail that you wish they makeMan ThingDoppelgangerAim scientist Blink70s Dazzler80s Dazzler Magik in her Marvel Now! costumeOnslaught Living Laser all that's left they haven't made that I want is:Blue Demogoblin (will happen just a question of when)Shriek80s RougeBlackheart (likely a baf) So I say let the system go as it functions
>be against trump>be against companies in america making their own toysHuh?
>>7704289Who are you even talking to?
>>7704886Apparently you missed the news. Not only were tariffs pushed back to December (kek, sucks to be Hasbro who tried to push all this product in before September) but they might exclude things like electronics and toys specifically.
>>7703589>Bullseye bodyWhy do people call it this? It's the 2099 body
>>7703598Agreed, we need more cute crossderessing superheroes
>>7704955Weird, it’s almost like companies moving production to the US would completely uproot their production and cause huge problems for almost any given industry. Results in raising prices on all consumer goods due to higher taxes and production costs, all for the sake of Nationalism. >HuH?!??
>>77050712099 has two versions, Bullseye doesn’t.
>>7705227People can't wrap their heads around long term goals anymore, for better or worse. It's all short term, whatever a politician can accomplish inside of their own term or even in some cases whatever they can leave fucked for the next guy when the climate swings back the other way.Over and over, no matter what side you're on.Also, toys.
>>7705071I always called it the Bullseye body because 2099 has unique sculpt on the forearms and legs.
>>7703178That is incredibly misinformed and I'm sure racially motivated.
>>7705290I reject your hypothesis.
About time Amazon.
Finished up my designs for some psylocke effects.
Will we ever see Walgreens Emma Frost being distributed? I missed out on Thing, and seriously considering just paying the 40 bucks from chinese seller off ebay to avoid the headache of brick and mortar searching.
>>7705656I spent $10 on Toy Biz Gorilla Magneto because fuck paying those prices for the new one. No MLs are worth that.
>>7705679You should've gotten bootleg Revo for 20 bucks from China
Ordered a Cattoys Mjolnir.Reminds me how out of shape I am holding it.
>>7705656Thing was a mess because his UPC was the same as Magik thus some stores got a glut of her and 0 Thing.
>>7704517go back to your trap threads
So now I kinda want to get the Walmart Black Panther and Retro vision since they're retail on BBTS right now. But if I get Vision I'll need a Wanda to go with him. And I'd obviously want the one from the Amazon 3 pack but I don't need Magneto since I have the Revoltech. These classic Avengers are a slippery sloap I tell you guys what.
>>7705611Retail price is $60. If anon has Prime it's free shipping. What's the problemo?
>>7705745No prime but Amazon locker next to my job so free shipping and wont have to worry about getting it stolenm
>>7705624Make dbz effects
>>7705624No one cares about this bitch anymore and she was a shitty release to boot
>>7705624Now fix her face.
>>7705780No she wasn't>>7705783Kill yourself samefag.
>>7705789Domino is cuter than Psylocke.
>>7705789>anonymous is one personYou first CoB
>>7705789Not samefag, dont you have egg on your face now
>>7705783I did, I gave her an entirely different head.
>>7705801>phoneposting>then tries to claim he's not samefaggingYou are amazingly dense samefag.
>>7703178well for one it’s not a country. don’t know why people say it is (it isn’t) and yea with what’s going on over there they probably are looking for their independence soon
I'll be back tomorrow for the Colossus/Jugg pack.
>>7706062Not if i get to it first faggot
>>7705745Not worth $60
>>7706075and the single pack 80th figures aren't worth 30 bucks eachand most normal figures aren't worth 20what else is new?
>>7706062Gonna go steal me a couple, feels good man.
>>7706081>Gonna go steal>stealPoorfag detected.
>>7706062Gonna get this and switch them with the Juggernaut BAF and the Colossus in the modern suit. Wish me luck guys.
>>7706066Guess the only way to settle this is a sweaty nerd fight in the middle of a the rich white people Walmart. Be there you, cuck.>>7706081Honest question, does it really mean anything to you at that point? Part of toy collecting for me is I finally made it enough to where I can splurge a bit and buy toys every so often. Do you just sell them or is it the rush of stealing? I don't get it. Enlighten me anon.
>>7706097The occasional steal is good for my morale; in that I am capable to pull off the ghost gimmick, and come up on some nice displays without spending a cent.
>>7706088Wow, you look ugly as fuck
>>7704954How are these two?
>>7701919Holy shit why are PAKs so grossly overdesigned? It looks like a transformer lmao
>>7706117I have no familiarity with the two pack itself, but I have the original single AIM Soldier and Paladin, and that pack is basically just them so that's what you'd be getting. Decent figures plus more accessories.
>>7706097Capitalism has you by the balls and the wallet. >>7706081Getting something that big from Target is actually tough. How are you gonna do it?
He’s not going to, you fucking commie. His mom’s asleep and he can’t drive himself there.
>>7706100I still don't get it. Be careful out there Anon.
>>7706117 Regular AIM guy is decent footsoldier but the brick shithouse guy is basically created solely for the toyline to justify the creation of the brick shithouse big guy buck.
>>7706130It would be pretty simple. Just bring a smaller item with you, like another figure, scan it, then place it back in the “to be scanned” side. Take your figures across the scanner at the same time as the other item, and put them in the bag. Tell the machine you’re not bagging it to throw off the weight sensor. Provided an employee isn’t watching you like a hawk, you’re off scott free. Would I ever try this? Hell no. It’d be really stupid to get detained by security over $60. But it is theoretically possible if you play it safe.
>>7701349Is there a reason they didn't put Silver Samurai out in the X-Force wave and Mr Sinister in the Classic wave? Would have made more sense as Mr Sinister was a well loved 4 inch figure while the old 4 inch Silver Samurai was a huge shelf warmer ala Bonebreaker, Grizzly, and Kane.
>>7706166Hasbro's been sitting on that Silver Samurai mold for over a decade. Also, Sinister's been in demand for ages so it makes sense to put it in a BAF wave to better sell it.
>>7705624Looks good. You think you might take a crack at something like Nightcrawlers teleportation smoke?
>>7706270I'm planning to, I just haven't decided if I want to try to go for that classic double mushroom cloud look or a more modern one.
>>7706077The single carded 80th figures are $25.
>>7706062>leaves one pack left that has a wonky colossus eyeEnjoy.
>>7701047My area is chock full of the first Endgame wave. Weirdly enough I've only ever seen Ronin twice and he goes quickly each time. Blink and Weapon X also are pegwarmers... I'm shocked Skullbuster isn't.
>>7705594i passed up one at Target 2 weeks ago, someone bought it while i was looking at other Legends stuff and Transformers. I bought one a week ago at Gamestop, found Pete had a knee joint and an elbow that were stuck. Tried the freezer, then managed to snap the arm. The little bitty Wal Mart in my home town was the last place I thought i'd find with it, but that's what happened. I swapped the busted one for the new one and all joints function correctly out of the box. Nice! Also, has anyone tried removing Marko's face from the helmet? I would like to try something with an empty helmet.
>>7706289I get the feeling Red and Sam are gonna be the Wendigo wave's pegwarmers though. Three Walmarts and they're the only two I've seen from that wave.
bought a camera for Spider-Chad.I might double dip on this bootleg just so I can display another one like this.
Also apparently mine finally got something from Captain Marvel in.... 18 Binaries. I probably could scalp if I had the time and effort.
>>7706130>Capitalism has you by the balls and the wallet.Remember all those great toys the Soviet Union made? Yeah, me neither.>the ak 47 is fun, but doesn't count as a toy
>>7706177>Hasbro's been sitting on that Silver Samurai mold for over a decadeIt's not the same one.
>>7706272Keep it classic chief
>>7706304There's no point in scalping something that's suddenly showing up in large numbers.
>>7706304I doubt it. I just saw a pile of them the same size at walmart too. She is going to shelfwarm hard the way these are hitting stores.
>>7706304Her time is passed. It's all about Endgame and 80years now. If these were out the same time as her movie and the Target Exclusive, then maybe it would have sold. I expect these to clog pegs next to Wasp, Gwen and Spiderwoman.
>>7704954What about that old toybiz blackheart?
>Cap delayed on Walmart siteIt's going to be months until they ship it out to me, isn't it?
Is the diamond slect lizard the best one? I came across one while hunting for older legends figures and nearly bit the bullet but was unsure if hes good.
>>7706437Even with all of his problem I'd recommend the Legends BAF over him. The select is too stiff and upright.The older Legends figure from the Fearsome Foes pack ain't bad but he's way too small.There's a few Spider-Man Classics lizard figures that are pretty awful when it comes to articulation but they definitely look the part.
>>7706448Will have to keep an eye out for the BAF one then as it's more the style I am going for. Did manage to get the dock ock from last year finally and plan to do the USB lamp mod for the legs.
I wanna buy some marvel legends for cheap. Mostly ones with “unmasked” heads. Any ideas?
>>7706623Trade figures on facebook group. A lot of people buying garbage on impulses, a lot of people looking for customs fodder and selling for cheap. The problem though is that you're exposing yourself to some manchildren, and some of them are pretty needy/entitled when you dont ship your stuff right away. Also using facebook is lame. I just stopped doing that and eat some 3-5 bucks markup buying off ebay. Get some sniping app, so you always bid at the last second and have no chance to overbid from impulse
>>7705689Nah that cape looks like a headache and I'd unironically take Gorilla Magneto over the revo
>>7705679You mean the standard retail price of $19.99? Because that's what each figure costs in that 3 pack.
>>7706721nah, I mean aftermarket price for the single figure. The retail price is perfectly fine but I don't really care about the other figures in that 3 pack. I guess I could sell those but even then it seems like too much trouble for yet another Magneto that really doesn't look great. He's better than the alternatives, but eh, not hyped on any of the Magneto figures we have so $10 for a subpar one is fine with me.
>>7706333>>7706357>>7706359Wait so she's now showing up everywhere? I was on the fence if I wanted to keep mine but if that's the case then I'll sell it off before the drop.>>7706767Just get the three pack. It's easily Hasbro's best Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch they'll ever do or release in.
>>7706784Definitely the best Scarlet Witch. Quicksilver not so much. His body is basic reuse and they couldn't even be bothered to give him his pointy hair. I already have the Revo Mags so I'm planning on skipping the set but if Quicksilver was better I'd be tempted. I may buy Wanda loose off of eBay though. I've seen listings for her for retail price + shipping.
>>7706767You can easily sell the Scarlet witch for 30 bucks and Quicsilver for 20-25 bucks.
>>7706359It doesn't help that her movie didn't exactly have the same staying power as Black Panther or Wonder Woman. You could blame that on Endgame, but people didn't really seem to care about Captain Marvel despite all the grandstanding. Just another Ant-man.
Binary Captain Marvel has struck my local Wal-Mart.
>>7707181Diamond in the ruff for some people.
>>7707185>ruffI keep seeing Bill, Loki, and Malekith everywhere. And whenever there's an 80th figure around, it's always Thor. I keep having to avoid the temptation of starting a Thor shelf.
>>7707191Ruff, rough, you know what I meant.
I am gonna pick up one of those Walmart exclusive Capt Marvel. I just need Target to pull their head outta their ass and put their exclusive green costume on clearance. Every store has 10 of them and it won't move for months. It's reaching Gwenpeg levels.
>>7706096I really prefer the BAF but good luck
>>7706412No, because your order will get auto-cancelled in September when it’s still not in stock.
>>7704517>wait i just found this boardSummer's over, kid. Lurk more next year.
>>7706412>>7707898Thank the Lord I found him in store and just cancelled my online order.
>>7703178>Country-too-Shitty-to-Become-a-State>Referring to a U.S. territory as a separate countryBurger education at work, ladies and gentlemen. You morons don't even know basic shit about your own damn country.
>>7708039Why should we? There's always a stray Canadian or Euro autist like you willing to know things for us in your passive aggressive, feminine way.
>>7707218>Ruff, roughWHAT'S THE MATTER, BOY? TIMMY'S IN THE WELL?!
The Walgreens near me has a couple of the Infamous Doctor Doom figures. I already have the Iron Man figure it's based on and there's a real Doom on the way. Is it worth picking one of them for the unmasked head?
>>7708204No I really wouldn't bother.
>>7708204Buy one. Take the head out. Return it. Really embrace the "piece of shit" m.o. that comes with collecting these things
>>7707610My Target refuses to clearance their exclusive toys. They'll rather pull them off shelves to salvage or keep them forever.
>>7708039How does it feel to be so obsessed with burgers but never being able to it a real one you shit hole third worlder
Now I have these two as extra since I already have the select and the new one. Maybe I'll keep them in this pose somewhere.
>>7708273I hope you have a car door close on your thumb.
>>7707185With those Hulk heads are you sure you don't mean diamond in the Ruffalo?
>>7708386Fuck off Reddit
Does anyone else have that problem where you try to limit your shit to a per-character basis like "Only Spider-man people" or "Only X-men" but then the jewish muscle in your brain starts saying "but wouldn't it be cool if you collected all the Illuminati members?"
>>7708389I don't even know how to use reddit.
>>7708396I tried keeping it cleanly to X-men and Spider-men, but how can you not collect these definitive versions of classic costume avengers?
Anyone got the Onslaught Wave Sharon Cartor and the Smart Hulk Rescue? I’m wondering how the Sharon head would look on the Rescue body.
>>7708396I've been pretty good about only collecting characters I really like. No specific theme though I do have mostly X-men.
>>7708396I find myself only getting characters I want which has ended with me only really getting spider-man and fantastic four stuff
>>7708396Yeah, it’s started with wanting the Wendigo BAF, then liking the Guardian figure which led to me wanting the 80th Cap if I found it at my local Walmart, which I did.
>>7708632I don't think I've complete a single BAF
>>7708717Apocalypse and Wendigo are the only BAFs that I purchased the entire wave to make. Man-thing and Caliban, I bought by themselves.
>>7708632I'm still seething that we lost the metallic red paint in the prototype to be replaced with plastic red paint with fuzzy linework
>>7708767I wonder if that was even metallic paint. Could have been that new metallic plastic Hasbro is using lately, which looks surprisingly legit.
>>7708724Second this. Try to buy them by themselves.I’ve assembled Lizard, Kingpin, Sandman, Monster Venom, SP//DR, Apocalypse, Caliban, Sauron, and Juggernaut.I straight up bought Rhino, Hobgoblin, Onslaught, MCU Vulture, and Abomination. Would highly recommend that, takes way less time and the complete figure is almost always cheaper than assembling because there’s always one part that’s super duper rare.
>>7708946Isn't it usually a better idea to just buy a case if you're interested in even say, half the figures? That way you technically get the BAF for a mere $20, and there's a decent chance you can make back some of your money selling off some of the figures you don't want.
>>7708954Only case I’ve ever bought was Space Venom. Dunno why, it was just the only wave I’ve ever wanted every figure. Turned out to be a brilliant idea, since that wave was impossible to find anywhere for retail.I have found that selling figures you don’t want (that are unpopular characters) is difficult, when you paid $20 per. But selling a BAF piece is easy no matter what. So, if I don’t want all the figures in a case, I’ll never buy a case. I’d rather buy the BAF completed or get the parts I’m missing. I just hate haggling over $8 parts, it takes forever. My Caliban sat unassembled for like a month, and I just wasn’t motivated to hustle to get his legs for cheap.
So you already have Vintage Storm preordered. You walk past a wild Storm on Walmart. What do you do /toy/?A. Buy it and scalp it on ebay for 10 bucks profitB. Buy it but too lazy to scalp it, so it just sits on your collection in box.C. Buy it and sell/give it to a person you know/friendD. Leave it on the pegs because you don't need it
>>7709289C.me and a friend always hunt for toys and he doesn't preorder it so i'll sell it to him
>>7709289D. I've basically already got it. I can wait.
>>7709289E. Buy it now, return the preordered one when I inevitably go back to Walmart at some point in the future
>>7709355Or just cancel the preorder if it hasn’t shipped.
>>7709289This happened to me. My Storm had shipped and I couldn't cancel the pre order. I decided to be a good boy and leave her for the next collector. Mine was delivered a week ago so I did the right thing.
>>7709289Z. Buy it, replace it with a Female Ghostbuster figure, and then return it for my money back.
>>7708632The Day of the Rake? War Plan Red?
>>7709289D. The closest walmart to me had more 80th stuff than i thought they would, but no Vintage and EE sent my shipping notice already. I did cancel my ee preorder for Iceman when i found him in Target first. Miracles of modern tech, i canceled the order from my cel phone while in the same target.
>>7709355>>7709358>>7709376Why would you bother to cancel preorder and get her off the pegs? The internet stock is way higher than your local stock. You're just as much of a problem
>>7709602Because I'm impatient as fuck. I do that with literally all my domestic toy purchases. I'll pre order them somewhere to ensure I get them in case I don't find them out in the wild. Then if I do find them before they ship I cancel them. Doesn't everyone do this?
>>7708396I haven't had a specific need to keep things to a specific property or to specifically finish a team I start, so basically I've just been going in on characters I really wanted. The Thing and Doom are my only FF figures, Beta Ray Bill is my only Thor character, etc.
>>7708717I built Space Venom because that entire wave got super cheap. The only other BAFs I have are Dormammu and Man-Thing, and I bought them complete.
>>7709625Yes>>7709602>as much of a problemGet fucked, that’s the way the cookie crumbles with trying to find a figure at retail.
>>7709731Fuck off faggot
>>7709570>Day of the RakeMy fucking sides
>>7709289Secret option D: Buy it, wait for my preorder to arrive, check the paint apps and sell/return the worst one.Did that with Jubilee. The one I preordered had shit eyes on the alt head and the one I bought in store had shit eyes on the regular head. Switched the heads and sold the spare, so someone got a Jubilee with two shit heads.
