Well, I went looking for LOTR and came back with ML
Took a drive over lunch break to a town 20 minutes away (remember, I work in a small town an hour away from the city) that has a couple of major retailers and getting a Walmart in the fall. No sportspicks or LOTR figures to be found, no treasure hunts (hey, if you can't irritate hot wheels collectors, who can you irritate?) but to my utter surprise, I found ML6. And at a store that tends to carry dollar store quality products. I just about fell over I was so surprised.
Much as others have said, the case assortments sucked. I did pick up the only Phoenix (green), two Deadpools and a Juggernaut. The rest of the pegs had only a multitude of Wolverines, innumberable movie Punishers
and three blue Cables, which I left on the pegs. Also left behind two Juggy's. I'm guessing this was two cases worth (how many per case?) so somebody else found them before I did.
This retailer, Saan, never carries anything of quality aside from Hot Wheels, so like I said, total shock. Only the rural stores carry toys at all, so a few drives may be in order to some small towns.
Juggernaut is awesome, huge and heavy. Deadpool is interesting and I now face a dilemma on whether to keep one or not. Very nice sculpt, nice weapon assortment (doop sucks). Noticed the gun is holstered on the wrong side though (left) from the picture. Phoenix is ok and I'm happy to have just one, but the body/neck is awful and it's much more obvious on this figure than on Elektra. Going to have to figure out a pose to hide it all.
