Marvelous News has carded and loose pics up of the first wave of 2 packs (Wolvie/Forge, Ult. Fury/Ult. Cap, Elektra/Ronin).

I like the interchangeable parts, but the open mouth version of Wolverine SUCKS. I know that I will be picking up a couple of the Wolverine/Forge sets, but hopefully can make some deals on my spare Forge figures. I want to make 1 custom of each head sculpt plus a regular version of each head sculpt with the claws. With the interchangeable hands I am going to have to look to see if I will be making more or not.

A little work with Forge's right leg to make it look normal you can use that body as a generic body and put a Gambit head on it, or Cannonball, or some other X-Men figure and make some cool customs. I am going to keep a set of the guns to put with my Cable figures.

That wolvie head does look a little silly.  I'm just going to get Ronin for my 'vengers collection...not sure if I want Elektra at this point or not.  I'll have to see it in person I guess.

I like the concept on these but not the execution.  Re:  Wolverine & Forge - that's a great period from X-Men to use as a source for figures.  But the head sculpts look silly.  Poor execution.

Went out looking for the Hulk Legends today but no luck. Not much marvel stuff at all on the pegs.

Not much in the way of Hulk figures at retail at all.  It seems that once the movie hit the figures flew off the pegs.  At least that's what I've seen.  Iron Man seemed to go the same way as well.

Haven't seen them around Minnesota at all, but they might be in back waiting for a reset.  The Target action figure aisle is looking pretty sad these days.

Are you talking about the Legends figures or the movie figures?  Because I haven't seen any sign of *any* of the movie figures selling here.  The pegs have been jammed since day 1 and they're starting to go on clearance.  Now, the Legends figures I haven't seen yet but I imagine they'll sell well at first due to FFF being one of the best Build-A-Figures to date (IMO).  But then again at the supposed $15 price tag they might sit around.   :-\

The Hulk movie figures seem to have sold through really well near me.

The Fwoosh has a "first look" up at the SDCC Exclusive Savage Land box set (Ka-Zar, Shanna, Zabu) on the way later this month.  There are lots of pics, for anyone interested.

Guarantee that you see the Shana converted into the one that people use to make "Sexy" likenesses of different charecters while they can get a hold of this set. The Ka-Zar is okay, and Zabu is too blocky looking. Easy set to pass on.

I think the set actually looks really good compared to the first pics we saw. I am looking forward to it.

Anyway, I went to another couple of TRU's today and i found 4 of the 8 FFF Hulk figures. King Hulk is a great figure. I think my favorite Hasbro figure to date. If they keep this up they may have pulled me back in.

Also found Titanium Man from IRon Man.

I found Iron Man Titanium Man at Target last week as well, so he's definitely making the rounds.  Which FFF Hulk figs did you find?  Are these shipping in two waves or did someone just beat you to the other figs?

I found King Hulk, Abosrbing Man, Doc, and Grey Hulk. There was another Grey Hulk and abosrbing man on the pegs, not sure if they are shipping together though but i think that both assortments are out.
