Sorry to go OT, but how much are Sentinels going for at Marshall's?  I wouldn't mind adding a couple; I don't care if they're silver.

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.

I haven't found any sign of Thor figures at TJ Maxx near me.  I've seen figures from the Iron Man 2 and Captain America lines, but not Thor.

Grrr.....  stopped by Marshalls today to see that they had 5 figures on the pegs, but none being King Loki or Laufey.  I just want to find these and be done with those stores!

Which did they have?  There are some key figures that will let you know whether Laufey or Loki were there.

Volstag and the Grey Destroyer - I asked an employee to check the back for me as I was hoping they maybe left some in the back since the peg was full, so the girl checked but came back empty handed.

I havent heard any other reports of these stores getting any other cases other than wave 3 yet

here is the case breakdown for those wondering:

Hmm.  There's the potential that it could have been wave 2, possibly.  Did you see Thor with the helmet, Fandral or Hogun?

Found King Laufey and King Loki x 2 at TJ Maxx today.

Amazing really, $5.99 each.  They go for a grip on eBay.  Cheap thrill.

How about cheapening that thrill even further and sending one of those Laufeys my way?

Found King Loki today at a TJ Maxx store today.  Still hunting for Laufey, though.

It looks like these were part of either a Wave 2 or 3 case, because I also saw Hogun and Volstagg.  I'm starting to think that TJ Maxx might not be shipping whole cases to stores, because I haven't seen any indications of a whole case so far.

yeah, I am pretty sure they do not send whole cases to stores  :(


I have been looking at some ebay auctions and I am noticing some of the collectors from marvelousnews.com are putting these figures up for sale as they are finding them.  That stinks.  Wish they would help out.

I went out again looking today.  Someone picked up the Destroyer at Marshalls yesterday, and nothing new there today.  At TJ Max there were two figures on the pegs that we not there the day before - Thor and Odin...........  So either someone beat me to it, or they only got two figures.........

I just won a Laufey off EBay for $15 shipped. I am tired of going around to those 2 stores looking
I will skip on King Loki, the Avengers one is good enough for me. Now I can say I am done with the Thor line

I normally dont feed the ebay, but I basically have been forced to paying a little more and ordering online for just about everything this year I figured I would do it again while my pants were still down..........  Now I dont have to pay for the gas on daily trips to those two stores looking for him.

Other than the Ewok sets at Kmart and TRU, I think I am done with retail for a LONG TIME.  Until the Hobbit line comes out....

If anyone has an extra Laufey, I've got an extra Avengers Black Widow up for trade!

I'm getting a little less judgmental about that kind of thing.  It's one thing for basement dwellers who scalp for scalping's sake; but this hobby is getting so damn expensive, I'm no longer as critical about fellow collectors who offset the expense by recouping some of the cost if they get lucky with a find by putting it up on the secondary market.  Fortunately, I never find anything good that I don't need myself, so I haven't been personally confronted with the moral dilemma of what to do in such a situation, but I'm not going to begrudge fellow collectors who occasionally make a buck or two back on eBay.
