Saw the Sentinel at TRU today. $49.99. Bit out of my price range at the moment so I passed. Comes with the same Wolverine from the Giant Size X-Men set.

I haven't decided if I'll pick this up yet or not.  I actually really like the previous Legends BAF version, but if these saw a large discount like Galactus saw at Amazon last year, I'd probably grab one.  I think I ended up getting the Galactus for around $20 shipped last year when they were having that crazy sale.

I noticed HTS.com dropped the number of Universe items down to 52 today, so they culled the figures being displayed by a fair bit.  Not much I need on there anyway but I would like to get the FF set.

Ditto.  AND also got my SDCC version from HTS.com.  2 Sentinels in 1 day.

Plus TRU had the Deadpool/Taskmaster pack.  Longest I ever had to wait to find a comic pack in the wild, by far.

The Sentinels are awesome, but the Marvel Legends Toy Biz version definitely still holds it's own and might even be better.  As awesome as the Hasbro version is.

Glad to hear that as it is the only version I have and am likely to get.

I saw the new Sentinel at TRU this weekend, it does look pretty nice.  I'm sticking with the Toy Biz version for now, but if the new version sees a nice sale I might be tempted.  I noticed with the Galactus, aside from the fact that it is larger than the Toy Biz version, it just seems like a little more solid toy as well.  The lights and sounds are kind of neat too I guess.

Found the new Dr. Doom at Target today, first I've seen of that wave and the only figure from that wave on the pegs. Stores are starting to get clogged with 1st Appearance Wolverines, though the number of Hobgoblins and Iron Men have decreased.

Did you happen to see Dr. Strange there with him?  I've found astral plane Strange, but have yet to see the fully painted version anywhere...

Nope, he was the only figure from that wave on the pegs. I'll be on the lookout though, I want the "normal" version too.

Our Target has gotten this wave in too, although all I've seen is the Falcon and Scarlet Spider.

Five local Targets got in a case of the Skaar wave yesterday, and at least three of those locations had the regular Dr. Strange, so the figure is starting to hit.

My Wave 14 case from EE.com is scheduled to arrive this Friday, there are 2 x Dr. Strange inside it, but I have no clue which version it will be.

It's my understanding that they will both be astral or both regular, but not 1 of each.

At any rate, looking forward to Falcon the most.
