It was Kmart, overpriced as they are.

In the last couple of days, I've picked up the yellow and blue Wolverine from the X-Men:  Origins line and Wolverine, Spider-Man, and the Hulk from the MU line.

The first time I saw them was at K-Mart, and they were $10.49.  Obscene.  I've seen them since at Wal Mart ($8.44) and K-Mart ($9.49).

Have these been found at Target yet? I will pick up some of these if I see them. I really hope I can find Deadpool & Gambit.

Sounds like a trip to Big K is in order.  Weird that they've shown up under three different price points.  In an unrelated story, I hear K-Mart sales are down.   ::)

I picked up a few of the new Marvel Universe figures, and I have to say that I think they're pretty well done.  They are definitely a lot more sturdy and I think better looking than the previous "Super Hero Showdown" figures which were similar in size/scale.  I'm not going to say that they are as detailed as some of the Legends figures, but at this scale, I didn't really expect them to be.  It sure is a much more manageable scale for display (and, in a small way, price) than the 6" stuff - although I won't be getting rid of those either.  Although there is some characters I would still like to see made in the Legends line, I do feel like it had a pretty good run overall - and I'm happy to have the figures we did get.  Anyways, the Universe figures seem pretty well done overall - at least the ones I picked up.  Also, something funny I found while opening these, on the Human Torch figure the cardback is "burnt" behind where the figure was - something that isn't present on the other cardbacks I have.

That's one of the figures I've picked up so far as well, and I think it looks pretty nice next to the Legends Galactus.

I've seen some of the 4" figures recently.  I can't say that I'm impressed at all.

Found some of the MU figures at my local WM. Surprisingly, they were $8.44, more than SW figures. I wanted the Surfer and Spider-Man, but I just can't pay that much for these.

I found the MU, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the Wolverine and the X-Men animated figures at our local WM today as well, and they were all priced at $8.44 as well.  Its amazing to think that we used to be able to pick up Legends figures for $6.88 around here, years ago.  I have picked up most of the first couple waves of the MU figures (and a couple of the comic-based Wolverine line figures) via HTS for the somewhat cheaper $7.99.  Although the price is probably too high for these as well, I will say that I really like the figures so far.

Picked up the Marvel Universe Iron Man and Captain America 3 3/4".  LOVE me some of these figures.  I'm not going to buy them all, probably about 1/3rd of them.  But these look great even mixed in among star wars figs, like Iron Man putting the smack down on a squad of stormies in some type of crossover dealio.





Plan on getting Wolverine, Daredevil, Spidey too.  Maybe a few others.

$7.99 at HTS.com is still a pretty good deal and they still have most of these in stock.  Shipping is only $6-7, so if you're going to buy more than 1-2, why not pay the same or less and have it shipped to your door?
