Ashamed to admit I sprung for a Hydroman today. Found it at Walmart on clearance for only $5 and I guess it's worth that much (usually about $10-12 up here).
Lots of stuff around too at various retailers.
-I'm pretty much assured that Marvel Legends will die in Canada with the first wave. It started out with only Walmart getting in bizarre cases with Planet Hulk and Beast only. It progressed to some actual regular cases coming in with the other figures, though still too many of Beast/Hulk. Today I saw more figures from a single wave of Marvel Legends than I have ever seen in the whole run of the line
TRU must have dropped about six cases into a wire basket and another two on the pegs. Superstore, which carries no toys after Christmas put out cases of them. Walmart had them stacked like they were McFarlane hockey figures
It is insane, these will never, ever sell. I can't imagine these being anything but mass clearanced at $5 by spring and we won't see any re-orders after that. The only place that might carry them would be TRU, but their policy of not marking stuff down will burn them hard yet again, so they'll be clogged with these forever.
I'll put out my call for help for wave two already, because the figures ain't showing here before I die.
Somebody send me a She-Hulk, puhlease.
Saw the Thor 12" Icon figure and wow, was it ever nice. I don't intend to buy it, but it sure looked pretty.
Those Spiderman Mego knockoffs are out in force too. Saw the usual Spidey assortment, plus the Goblin and Doc Ock, but I saw a Wolverine and a Iron Spiderman today as well. And no, I didn't buy any of them.
