Have to think about that one.  No stand, no weapon.  Back of the factory cast off.  But cheaper than otherwise. 

TRU.com had Apocalypse and Cyclops in stock so I pulled the trigger on those.  $21.54 after shipping for both, but still cheaper than Canadian retail so it didn't hurt so bad.  Wish they'd have had Cable in stock as I'm still missing that one. 

Wish I had known you needed these - I saw that wave at TRU a few weeks back.  Almost bit on Apocalypse, but I stuck to my guns on only collecting Avengers.  :-\

One of our retailers jumped up the price of the two packs to $24.99  :o 

If that settles in as a real price I'll be done with this line awfully quick.  Walmart is still $19.99 and HTS.com is down at $14.99 if they have whatever in stock.

I received the Avengers and X-Force team sets in the mail today from BBTS.

Received those as well, really looking forward to the Fantastic Four set (hopefully coming this month).  I know our daughter is really looking forward to being able to have a Sue Storm/Richards figure.

I noticed that BBTS also put up some new preorders including Wave 4 (which we know about - Darkhawk, Steve Rogers, etc.), and also Wave 5, which I didn't know about.  Here's what they list as the contents of Wave 5:

Tony Stark Iron Man
Iceman
Absorbing Man
Astonishing X-Men Wolverine
Magneto

They also list a Guardians of the Galaxy "Team Pack" coming in that same line that released the Original Avengers and X-Force sets.

Some people have problems with the retail version of the Sentinel - I dont have a problem it - I want one of each.

And thanks to my "evilanimation notification" (patent pending) I have one on preorder from TRU.com: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11152147

Shipping is free because it is over $49

I snagged a Falcon at Target yesterday.  Was really surpised to see him - I didn't realize these were out yet.

Any idea what assortment he shipped out in?   I'm after the Falcon, but depending on the wave, not really much else.  I am digging the new Namor.

Falcon is part of Wave 14, which also contains Dr. Doom, Dr. Strange, Scarlett Spider, and Skaar.
Speaking of which, I had an endcap shipper pulled from the back room today at a local Target which contained this wave.  It slightly bothers me that of the 24 figures in the shipper, 7 of them are Scarlett Spiders.

There was a second Falcon on the pegs.  Let me know if you want me to check and see if it is still around.

I'm good Justin.  I'll wait a bit but thanks for the offer.  Still hunting for Cable though. 

Not quite MU but I did find a couple of Shocker figs from the Spidey line today, along with a Lizard and a Scorpion.  Left the Scorpion behind simply because the figure did nothing for me.  I assume it's a cartoon related version.

Don't care.  Baby, no baby is all the same to me.  I'll open it and probably lose Hope.

I'll trade you Cable for Shocker straight up.  PM sent cuz I don't know how often you check here.
