I know. I was exaggerating.

Kenner never had that problem from 78 until the mid-80s.
I just went to cancel my pre-order and re-order and the price was already adjusted.
Marvelous News is reporting that the line is changing to "Avengers" now instead of Marvel U. If I squint just right at that photo, I can make a Black Knight with ebony blade 4" figure. AWESOME.
The report said the new line would be consistent with Marvel U figures, so more articulation than the IM or SW Legends lines. They hinted that retailers don't really know "Marvel" as well as they know "Avengers," so changing the name gives them some added bargaining power with the big box boys.
I understand (somewhat) people's view that these are a step backward. I for one love the 5 POA Original Trilogy figures - to put it in context. Imagine if we would have got these in 1996 instead of the beefy/He-Man sculpts. People would have flipped their **** with excitement. And if they were on Vintage card backs....
Woot woot... Picked up Imperial Commander Chase for 248.00. A little high for me but much better than 500-600 asking price. Couldnt pass up on it.
It sold out for the remainder of the con at 11am today. That's either a testament to its success or poor planning on Hasbro's part. Either way, next week exclusives dump on HTS will be interesting.
