I hadn't seen much all year either, until this week.  Our local TRU did have the She Hulk, FF Spidey, Scarlet Witch wave on the pegs, but that's about the first I've seen this year.  Target has gotten that Psylocke/White Iron Fist/etc. wave a few times (and still has some), and our local WM doesn't even carry MU.  Much like SW, I'm up to date with this line just because I've ordered it all online from BBTS.  Still on the lookout for those other comic packs though, haven't seen the She Hulk/Wolverine ones, the only one our TRU seems to have gotten are the Spidey/Doom set (which is nice), Iron Man/Mandarin, etc.

I notice - at least so far - Hasbro didn't show anything MU at NYCC either.  I'm starting to wonder if this line has much of a future, or if they are just holding some things back and focusing on Iron Man 3 (and Legends).

OK so now that I know where to mention this, I've heard that Ross stores are getting a giant Sentinel figure for this line?  I can look for them if anyone needs help looking for these since Ross is pretty accessible to me on the weekends.

The cost of shipping one of those mothers would likely minimize the value a bit; they're big and heavy.  But just FYI, there are different versions, one with silver legs, which is the more common release, and then a classic comic color variant that has purple legs.  If you find one with purple legs, that can be good trade bait.

Another thing to look for is Galactus.  Again, there are two versions, one that's lighter colored with blue and purple, and one that's...um, dark blue and dark purple.  The Dark Galactus is the variant. I found two of them at TJ Maxx a couple months ago (kept one for me and gave the other to my friend who runs this Galactus fan site.  Either Galactus is kind of hard to find, but most people who collect this line have one, but if they don't, they'll want him really bad.

The Sentinel figures have shown up at TJ Maxx also.  I spotted one a couple of months ago but I didn't know about the variant so didn't pay attention.  It was in a crushed box so I didn't pick it up for trade bait.

Thanks.  It appears they don't ship until mid-November, so Murphy's law will likely apply and I may find them locally first, though I doubt it.  None of our retailers up here have restocked anything with 'newer' waves in probably 4-5 months.  The wave with Psylocke was the last to hit and none of the major retailers, most notably Walmart and TRU, actually have pegs with any MU tags at the moment.  Lots of movie stuff (Cap/Thor/Avengers/Spidey/IM) but not the generic line.   :-\

Didn't realize new stuff was on HTS... went ahead and snagged Kraven and Beast. Shouldn't have to think about this line anymore until the Jubilee/Xavier wave starts showing up.

Ugh, forgot about Miles. Which wave is he supposed to be in again, and which listing is he on HTS? Might as well order him online and get it over with.
