The shipping was free, and I saw Hawkeye and got all hot and bothered.

I can wait for retail too I guess, it'll probably be 1-2 weeks but I must have found 20 of every other comic pack anyhow.

We wait!

Supposedly the new Comic Packs have already hit Targets on the west coast, so you may not be waiting for too long.

A fellow Hawkeye fanatic?  We're not logging in from the same IP are we Dressel?  Freaky.  Thanks again for the offer - I will keep you posted if I find extra.  Thought my comic subscription place might have them in as pre-orders by now, but no sign of them yet.   :P  Good to hear they're already hitting Target - thanks Neal!

I am SO looking forward to this wave. Hawkeye and Thor are the hot ones for me. Ultron and Enchantress to a lesser degree. I could do without the Piledriver figure and Mr. Fantastic is meh to me. But he'll be another one of the FF made in that outfit. You just know they'll repaint Mr. F. in the other paint scheme though sometime down the line.

Anyone seeing Jean Grey, Vision, Sunfire and Warpath? I've never seen them and am a little concerned. I want one of each of them and haven't seen any of them as yet. Any help acquiring these would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not in love with the Reed Richards likeness.  They used the Daredevil body rather than the Johnny Storm body.  I'll probably be sticking Reed's head on another Torch body to get the proper look.  Love the other figures.

I have seen them all a couple times, Warpath the most.  For some reason I passed on Jean, I just didn't love the likeness all that much.  I actually thought repainting a Carol Danvers was a better option.  All my sightings were at TRU and Target.

If I see them again i'll buy them and PM you.

Ah, great idea to use a Human Torch fig for Reed. And yes, I would be most appreciative if you find them and can pick them up for me. I'm not so worried about the card (I open them) as I am about the paint application. So if you see multiples, please pick the best painted one.

Thanks in advance for any help on these!

I have only seen them once at WalMart in Tomah, WI and remnants at a WalMart near me.  My Targets have not moved past the Wal-Mart wave and I haven't seen TRU get anything new in several months.  I actually ended up buying my vision from a comic site - was a little worried about the paint job I'd get, but it was fantastic.  I passed on Jean as well because it's a crummy lookin' figure.

Nabbed the 3 new comic packs at WM last night - very happy I didn't have to hunt long at all after initial reports of them being found.  Thankfully, the paint apps are much improved over the last wave.  I didn't think about it until I was on my way home to look at all the wave 2 packs again to see if any of them that were repacked and had better paint apps.

Thanks for the tip on these!  I only want two, so the $17 price after tax and shipping is still too steep for me.  If anyone has a current code that works on these, please post it!

Prototype Juggernaut.

There's a blurry picture going around from UK toy fair with a new 3.75" scale Colossus, Archangel, Juggernaut and a couple others.  



I think that's an AIM soldier probably on the lower left too.
