Gracias.  

Hmm, here's hoping Cincinatti gets theirs in late October rather than November.

Is anyone interested in the three figures other than the white Elektra from the Urban Legends set?  I really only want that one and could sell the others to someone else.  Anyone know what it retails for in the US?  It runs around $50 up here.

When it comes out, it should retail for about $35 - $37, Brent.

And I haven't forgot about you.  I'm trying in vain to find you some clonetroopers or Jedi 3 packs for that Doom.  I just haven't been having any luck - I'm seeing tons of the droid laucher but none of the good stuff.  ML V might be out before I have any luck  ::)

Thanks Mike, and I wasn't worried about you at all.  I know how distribution woes can be, so it's cool.  

Appreciate the price info too.  Makes it seem positively reasonable up here.  Now I just need to find a way to unload a few figures.  The last thing I need is yet another Daredevil figure.  Yellow, red, movie, spiderman line version, repainted slv.  Yikes.  Not that I don't like my yellow one and actually, I can't find my original red one right now either ???

Sounds like both sets are now out :-*

Also, case breakdown of Series V

3x Colossus
2x Silver Surfer
1x Mr. fantastic
1x Nick Fury
2x Saber Tooth
3x Blade II (Movie Figure)  ::)

Put Blade at 1x and Fantastic and Fury at 2x...since when was Blade a Legend anyway

I just saw that lineup too, and I was also a little surprised by the amount of Blade figures.  I guess I didn't see that figure being the most sought after out of that lineup.  Colossus, I can of course understand...and he's the one I'm looking forward to the most as well...but I think it would be better suited to have some more of Mr. Fantastic, etc.

The Red Skull is also supposed to be in the Series 5 lineup.  But, he's supposed to be more widely distributed than previous chase figures.

Well I wish the arrival of these was listed as pre-Christmas.  When our Wally's had ML stuff to order at Christmas, they went gang busters.  I found four gold iron man and if Red Skull is to be as prevalent, I'd likely find one.  And I would be happy.  

That mix is goofy, going for the Vampire fans I suppose.  Still, Mr. Fantastic and Nick Fury will be tough early on.

I want that Silver Surfer figure, mostly because I'm a big Joe Satriani fan.

Picked up the X-Set today at the local Comic/Adult Book store in town (Shinders for the locals) It was a tad spendy at $45 but I thought what the hay, so I now have a Maskless Wolvie :-*

Music to my ears.  I can get it in Canada at an online store (Legends) for $49 and shipping.  BTW Dale, they have the Mezco mini predators for $17 or so.  Shipping is flat $7 so that may be an order early next week.  Now to decide whether I want the Urban Legends set or not ???

Morg, you might try this Canadian etailer:  http://www.theouterreaches.com.  They've got a pretty decent selection.

Scott, how do you like the X-Men set?  Are the semi-reissues cool sculpts?  I'm curious about Beast, Wolvie and Gambit.

I really like the whole set, Wolvie is good, not sure if it is the same head as the Mskless Wolvie or not but it looks nice.  The Pleather coat for Gambit and Rogue are nice as well

Not sure if it was worth the money for:

Rogue
New Wolvie Head
Lab Coat and Glasses
Gambit Coat

But I figured I could trade off the old Magneto, Gambit and Beast

From the images I've seen, the head on the Marvel Legends 3 maskless Wolverine is different from the one that comes in the X-Men set.  I've been trying to find an image of one, but can't right now.
