If I had to guess, I'd go with the 4" Hawkeye.  The 6" figures are exclusive to Walmart, so he probably wouldn't be finding it at TRU.

I missed the "where."  I'm just looking for the 6".

Saw the Walmart 6" exclusives today for the first time.  I think it would be awesome to have the set but can't spring for them at that price, not with CVI coming up next week.   They look really nice, though.

I also saw these at wally today, they had all but Hulk. They look really good for the most part, I'd say Iron Man, Hawkeye and Loki looked the best, with Cap next then Thor, just wasn't quite sold on him. But for $16 each, just not in my non-existent budget.

"Found" is one thing.  Hopefully you didn't actually buy it.  ;)

Yup.  I bought three, actually!  One of which is up for trade.

TRU, and about $16.99, IIRC.

Like I mentioned, I have an extra up for trade.

Target and Walmart have the Chitauri on chariots for $12.99

The figure shows elbow and knee ball joints on the package, yet the figure is not articulated in these areas.  The arms and legs are straight sticks that do not bend. 

I noticed this at Target and left the 2 Chitauris I was going to buy on the shelf.

That is a new low from Hasbro as far as I can tell.

I looked at a couple of the single carded Chitauri the other day and it looked like, although they'd the nixed elbow and knee articulation, they left an ankle joint.  An ankle joint without knee joints makes absolutely zero sense.

True story.  The ankles were articulated for sure.  Too bad the arms and legs went back to 1977 Kenner articulation aside from that.

I think the designers are passing a huge bong around the room when they make some of these decisions.  Definitely during case assortment decisions.

So I picked up a couple of the "Deluxe" Chitauri and was shocked to see that the figure had no knee or elbow articulation.

Are the individually carded Chitauri in the main line going to be this way too? If so then I'm just going to pass on the single carded ones.

I opened one, I'm actually thinking about returning the second one because the figure sucks so bad...

The individual carded ones are worse.  Same crappy articulation with an even worse paint job.
