HTS = Free shipping on most orders over $25 til 10/10/11

I just pre-ordered the GOTG set and the Spiderman/Britain set.  I used one of the groupons I bought and I only had to throw $7.50 on my credit card.   ;D

Just got off the phone with customer service rep Mariam at HTS and she confirmed to me that all they do have in stock at HTS.com is the variant white FF version.

I went ahead and placed an order for this set and the Power Man/Fist set.

Well this is a first.  Found the new wave 15 in the last 2 days at TRU, Walmart, and Target.

Never happened before.  I actually didn't need to order this case I have coming from Entertainment Earth in the next couple days.

My official guess is metal variant.

That would be correct.  Both were the metal version.

Not that wave here, but a case with Doc Strange (regular), Falcon, Apocalypse, Doom, Scarlet Spider and a couple of other figures I already have.  So we're behind, but it was nice at least seeing something new.

Nice that you found Reg Dr. Strange at least.  I still haven't seen that one around.

Saw 2 cases of the newest wave at TRU this morning. Seems like more of an "under-40" wave, as I hadn't even heard of half these guys.

Ultron looked pretty sharp, but Namor seemes way too muscly.

You're not that behind, I only started seeing that wave hit here around September 1

Thanks. 

September to December is usually productive around here.  Pre-Christmas, go figure. 

After that though it gets downright depressing for eight months.  Kinda hoping we get dumps of the Thor and Cap figs, like we did with the Indiana Jones stuff.

New stuff at Target tonight and I actually bought a couple figures, Steve Rogers and X-23.  Dr. Strange is a pretty good looking figure and so is Ultron.

Does anyone have any side by side comparison pics of the more recent Ultron and Doc Doom with their comic pack counterparts?

Dr. Doom - basically the Secret Wars is brighter green and the single carded release is duller green.  No real  sculpt differences.


Most recent wave 14 single carded release:
