What retailer did you find them at?

I found these at Target, but I also saw a Sentinel at TRU today.

I saw one of each of the "mega packs" at TRU this weekend at $10.99 each.  I was tempted, but with all the spending on exclusives and such the past couple weeks, I passed.  Plus, I can wait for Target or WM to stock them slightly cheaper.  Seeing them did make me think that they could carry this concept over to the SW line.

I found the mega packs at TRU today, but had to pass on them.  They had the Sentinel and Galacticus ones - isn't there supposed to be an Avengers one with Goliath?  I might buy that, but $11 seems steep.

That set is part of wave 2 ... along with the Apocalypse/Beast set.

Fin Fang Foom looks great, but everytime I see one of these DLX Marvel sets I can't help but think how great it would be to get a Rancor/Oola or Tusken/Bantha Pack in the Star Wars line.  :-\

I've thought the exact same thing Jeff.  I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen the Mega Packs in the Galactic Heroes line yet, but hopefully next year.  The two you mentioned would be great candidates I would think.

Has anyone here been picking these up?  I started off getting some of them, but haven't really looked that closely at them lately, aside from the Spidey ones.  I do like them, as I do Galactic Heroes, but with budgeting for next year I'm thinking about just staying away from now on.  They'll just be going to our daughter anyways at some point, unless she wants nothing to do with them.

Sweet!  I got the Black Panther and Ant Man/Strange sets at Walmart last week on clearance for $5  ???  Will likely be getting that 4pack, not sure about Spidey vs foom though - already have an iron man and don't need/want a foom.

Agree with you there - I was excited to be getting a warbird, but I don't think they did a very good job on her.   :-\  Other two are just redos or not neccessary.  Seriously, how many issues was spidey in the iron spidey suit?

A head's up to fans of this line (or those with kids to please)...

I was checking out Target's Easter Clearance deals today (75% off) and picked up a few single carded "Happy Easter" packaged SHS figures - "webslinging" Spiderman and Captain America, just $1.24 each. 

If you go looking, there is suposed to be a second "crouched" Spiderman and The Hulk in the line as well, though my local Target didn't have either of these left.   :-\

Thanks for the heads up Jeff.  Although we have a daughter, I kind of wanted to get a Spidey for her 1st Easter basket this year, but when we scanned them and they were $5 each, we decided not to.  I might have to check the clearance section when we're there tomorrow, if there is anything left.

As a side note, is anyone here collecting these (either for yourself or your kids)?  I bought a few to start out, but haven't bought any since really.  I pick up all the Spidey-related sets, and have most of the "main" heroes from the first wave or two, but haven't done much beyond that.  Again, I picked these up with the intentions that this was one way I could share Star Wars/Superheroes with my daughter without the Mrs. opposing it too much ;).  It really looks like this line is expanding out a lot too, similar to Star Wars.
