not sure there is a foul here.

This is funny when in the context of talking about a guy named Falcon.

LOL!  That's punny.

Brian - no worries.  I was being playful more than anything and after the last day of posts they might as well call the movie "Captain America and the Falcon"

Picked up CA:TWS versions of The Falcon and WWII Cap to finish off the CA2 3.75" figure line for my collection.

The Falcon figure could have really benefited from having ankle joints to allow him to point his toes while "in flight" - but otherwise a great representation of him from the movie.

I was just going to ask if anyone has seen Falcon yet on the pegs, I've been looking through the pegs at Target with no luck.

I've actually been surprised by the amount of sell through of all of the Cap figures, way more than the Spidey stuff right down the aisle

The Cap merchandise seems to be far more focused than the Spidey stock.  I think that's a big part of why it's sold through as well as it has.  I've been trying to find Falcon, too, but not luck so far.

It doesn't hurt that Cap has a movie that was just released AND Army builders in the lineup.  The spidey line doesn't have a lot going for it, especially given the abundance of Spidey figures available over the years.  And if that's not enough, Spiderman is priced $2 higher at my Target stores than the Captain America line.

I saw a 3.75" Cap in his WW2 gear during the week.  But Falcon still seems to be somewhat elusive.

Anyone seeing 6" Black Widow on the pegs?  Can't seem to find her anywhere outside of Ebay.

I saw ONE 6" Black Widow, and that was at a Target store.

I've been hitting one Target with zero Cap figures going on about three weeks now.  Unreal.

Not at all.  Thanks Scott!  When will you be back up North?  We missed you last week.

Cool, it is yours, and sorry about last week, I got stuck heading to Kansas which is slightly worse than going to China.  Do you need the Cap and Winter Soldier too?

In other news, I was able to pick up a Falcon off eBay for a not too bad a price, nice looking figure, glad to be done with the line

Finally scored the 3.75" Falcon.  Turns out that the Disney store may be an untapped resource, at least near me.  The prices are $1 or so higher, but that's a reasonable tradeoff for not having to run all over town trying to score a couple of figures.
