The Bullpen / Re: Marvel Universe

Yeah, always nice to see something new.  They updated the page with a second figure - Morbius.  I won't get either of those, but solid C-List characters for Marvel fans.

This is where the frontier pushes back

Really, does the villain have writers room  to come up with that?

Wondering what the big secret is...THE TWIST...right, this isn't JJ Abrams.

So maybe this is Point Break in space.

Separatists vs. the Republic Federation?  Sounds like a great original concept to me.

Fixed this...

Added Goldner: “Hasbro and Allspark Pictures put storytelling merchandising at the center of everything that we do.

I love just about all of these brands with the exception of Visionaries.  Micronauts and ROM are some of my favorite old time comics and I used to watch MASK daily as a kid.  One one hand, it will be great to see these get the big screen treatment.  But I threw up a little when I read that they storylines will be "interconnected."  I could see mixing and matching GI Joe with MASK or having ROM shrink down into the Microverse, but all of them tying together is a pretty big stretch.  Sounds a lot more like trying to build a standardized toy line than "great storytelling."

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: Walmart 6" Imperial Shock Trooper

Found a case at WM last night.  I have extras if anyone needs them for cost plus shipping.

Scored the First Order TIE Pilot this morning at the Toys R Us near where I work. Nice figure, have no plans on getting the 6" scale TIE Fighter so just getting this will have to do...

Any idea how different he is from the pack in?  Nice score!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2

I was out on Monday and saw about 10 storm troopers on the pegs between 2 walmarts so I grabbed a 3rd one with a nice paint job. No sign of wave 3 in Boston yet.

Wow! Hope that ends up being the case everywhere.

You guys already know Jakku transforms into Unicron, right?

Pete - you might have missed Jeff's earlier note on this.  Looks like you have to put in the assortment #, not the individual item number or UPC.

Brickseek won't work unless you have the inventory # for the case assortment - 46173522.   That works...  but you won't be able to tell if it's Wave 1 or Wave 2 or whatever.  Just tells you that they have some type of Black Series 3.75" figures.   :-\

Of course, results may still vary.  I was at Walmart last night and they show 27 items in stock, but couldn't find them on the floor or in the stockroom.   :o

Here's the email I received, titled "Urgent Update":

If I log into the site, it shows my order as $0 and says "CLOSED," so I don't think there's any chance they get more in and fulfill it.   :(

If I was dealing with this earlier on, I think I would have bailed on the line.  It just stinks to have gone back and purchased almost all of them just to now miss out on one of the last (and one of my favorite characters to boot).

And my order has been cancelled by Disney.  >:(

Actually hating Disney more than Walmart this morning.  I managed to order one yesterday as well, then fired off emails to cancel my Ebay purchased one of $65.  Got my Ebay purchase refunded, then the same cancelled order notice from Disney this morning.  I've spent hours now trying to get this guy and have nothing to show for it.  THANKS DISNEY!

Sold out again.  Thanks to Jeff and Nick for the quick head's up.

Good lord this is an epic unending line of horse **** for you man.

Seriously.  Can you threaten to sue for the distress caused by all the manipulation from this guy or added delays in getting a speedy trial? 

The Force Awakens / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts
« on: December 8, 2015, 05:04 PM »
I think it all depends on what the selection is and how many you're willing to buy.  The $19.99 price point does look absurd at first, but you can get down close to an item price that matches other retail IF you capture all the deals and buy at the multiples/price thresholds needed.  Their strategy is to make you feel like you're saving a lot of money, while getting you to increase your total basket purchase and make a return visit.  it's similar to what KB Toys used to do.  They would have price tags that Showed $8 for a $5 figure, then a red slash showing it as on sale at two for $10! 

The current offer @ Kohl's is 25% off everything and $10 in Kohl's cash for every $50 spent.  If you bought one figure, you'd pay $14.99 vs. $12.99 at someplace like Target.  Not terrible if you find something you really want.  If you bought four figures, you'd essentially pay $49.97 (including the $10 Kohl's cash), so that's like paying $12.49 versus $12.99 elsewhere assuming you come back to spend the Kohl's cash on something else.  Feels like a slightly better deal, but you don't really get the $10 off - just $10 towards a future purchase.  If you can stack a 15% off personal rewards coupon with the other items, then it starts to make more sense.

Compare that to buying a case at someplace like EE.  They have a case of 8 armor up figures for $109, so now you're paying $13.75 per figure - more if you can't get the free shipping. 

You are all welcome.  If I had not bought one off Ebay for crazy prices this would not have shown back up for sale.
