Finally saw the WalMart exclusive Thor figures.  MEH.

Still trying to find King Loki & Laufey though.  And also trying to find someone who might be interested in splitting a case of the Thor Deluxe figures.  Each case includes TWO Heimdalls.

What elese is in the case Nick?

I have Heimdall.  Don't splurge too much.  The articulation is limited and it's not even the comic version.  I'll post pics soon.  Just ate so much turkey.

2 x Heimdall's, 3 x Lightning Fury Thor's & 1 x Blaster Armor Thor.  Here's the listing.  The case is $84.99, and I need all three deluxe figures in the set.

Sorry it took me so long to post pictures of what I was trying to say about Heimdall.

Here's a couple pics:





You can see in the first pic the kind of elbow joints Hasbro gave the figure.  It doesn't allow for any movement but a flex of the bicep, which makes most cool poses impossible.  If you want to get him and just post him with his sword at his side, he's okay.  The other thing is, he's not even the comic version.  Not that I don't love Charles from his season on the office.  Or his being chased around by Ali Larter in Obsessed.  I mean who doesn't love that.  But in Heimdall armor, not so much.

In other news, finally got an opener Sif today at TRU.  Place was a damn zoo at lunchtime but they still had the 2 for 12.99 signs up, so I grabbed an ethnic variant Endor Rebel and got both for $13.

You forgot to mention his role as "Stringer Bell" from the HBO series "The Wire".  If you haven't ever seen that show do yourself a favor and watch all 5 seasons.  Best. Show. Ever.

I loved the Simpsons joke about that show last week, where they basically made fun of the fact that so many people tout it but almost no one actually watched it when it was on.

Quality stuff though, for sure.

I can"t be certain of this but it looks to me like my local TRU put out another case of Wave 4, the Sif wave, upfront with the Avengers display.  Sif was gone, but two black Destroyers were there.

Well, hopefully someone on this board can help me out, apparently the Laufey and King Loki wave is now starting to pop into TJ Max and Marshall stores.  I would be very grateful if someone were able to nab the pair of these guys, or even just Laufey for me.

I'll keep a lookout.  Is Sif in that wave?  Still holding out hope of finding her....

Drat.  Well, I'll keep an eye out for you all the same.

I'm going to be hitting TJ Maxx with a vengeance.  I was never able to find Laufey or King Loki.  And I'll be sure to keep an eye out for Sif.  I was lucky and found her at TRU, but only once.

If you come up with an extra Laufey I would be interested   8).  I have been going daily to my closest TJ Max/Marshalls and still nothing.  I have only seen one Sentinel and it was at Marshalls and it was the Silver one.

So I think my local stores suck for toys.
