No need to apologize to me, guys.  I know all too well that absolutely no one is rooting for this team to win.

Local Target reset the action figure aisle and stocked Green Lantern, Captain America and Transformers: DotM figures.  the CA figures looked okay, for the three flavors of Cap and one Winter Soldier.  WS probably looked the best.

I checked out the movie CA, assuming it was the movie version, with the helmet and it looks like it should be an okay figure but all of them on the shelf had terrible paint on the eyes.  All but one also looked like the left leg was screwed up by the bubble insert.

The leg was turned, which is allowed by the hip joint, but they also looked like they had the kneed joint all fouled up as well.  So, for $7.99, I passed.

   E...

If the case you saw contained three Caps and Winter Soldier (wave 1), then you didn't see the movie Cap.  He premiers in wave 2.

I received the two latest Comic Packs and the X-Men six pack today from a fellow collector.

I received my case of Wave 2 today.  As Dressel pointed out, this wave is definitely where it's at.

I picked up wave 1 this morning at a local Target.

Ew.  You mean, like, more than Winter Soldier and WWII Cap?

The rest are horrible.

Wave 2 is where it's at.

Then you'll be happy to hear that my case of wave 2 will be here on Thursday.

Received the Comic Series War Machine (second version), Whiplash, and Ultimate Iron Man in the mail today.

was this a BBTS order?

I noticed they have the 4 of them from this wave back up for preorder.  sucks that if you go that route you are basically paying twice what they sell for retail once they get to your house...  still makes one think about ordering...

Yes, it was.

I'm pretty psyched for most of what they showed at Toy Fair and in their presentation.

In related news, I scored the Daredevil, Ms. Marvel, Warpath, and Vision variants today between two local Targets.

I'm not expecting to ever see these at retail.  All the stores near me seem to still have ample supply of the first few waves and I don't see those moving very fast. 

The only thing that will help is if stores change things up.  For example, if Target assigns the new line different DPCIs, they can clearance out the existing figures and clear peg space for the new line.

I posted this in one of the other threads, but is Thor just getting a "movie" line with no comic series (like Iron Man and Cap got)?  I haven't seen any mention of a comic series with Thor, and don't think there have been any pics of any either.  They may be taking a more conservative approach (like the first Iron Man) with this line, while it appears Cap is getting a bit more of a rollout.  I guess I wouldn't necessarily miss a comic series for Thor (they can incorporate them into MU), but wouldn't mind seeing the Warriors Three done at some point (comic style I mean).

It was mentioned that a Comic Series will follow later, but not for the initial launch of the line ... which, to me, is unfortunate.  I was really looking forward to the potential of a Comic Series.

I actually really enjoyed the ending.

Same here.  Apparently, we're in the minority.
