I saw some of the ToyBiz tribute cards.  And seeing those again just threw me for a loop!

More great reveals for this line this weekend, as usual for this line. Particularly happy to see Cloak and Dagger, a long time want for me, and the new Thing - one of my favorite characters.  A few of the figures did seem kind of like "didn't we just get this?", and I'm not sure how much I care about all the symbiotes outside of Venom and Carnage. Of course, I could just be talking myself out of stuff so I can afford that Sail Barge  ;) The Legends line is tough to keep up with anymore, churning out so much goodness.

Wow, there's some good stuff in that lot that I thought we'd never see.  Black Knight?  YES!!!  I have an awesome custom of him on his winged horse, but this one looks pretty sweet, especially with the extra heads.  Great to see a Warbird in the lineup too, though that's another that I spent big bucks on for a nice custom.  The biggest surprise for me was Paladin - what an obscure character, but one of the few characters I don't have in my Avengers lineup.  I will probably grab Storm, Blue Wolverine, and Psylocke too.  Never been a big fan of the Cloak & Dagger/FF crew, but the figures look great.

When is The Thing due to arrive? Or Mr Fantastic for that matter?

Did they say anything about doing the rest of the Inhumans?

A question for those of you that have them, but I was wondering which versions of Galactus and the Sentinel you preferred? The older Toy Biz Marvel Legends build a figures, or the somewhat more recent Hasbro Marvel Universe electronic figures. I happen to have one of each version, but as I go through my collection and totes, I wonder if I really need to have two versions of each. Trouble is, I can't decide for sure which I prefer. I think in general the Legends ones look a little cooler (especially the Sentinel), but I think the MU ones are more solid and I enjoy their lights/sounds. I may just end up keeping both, but I was curious what some of your opinions were.

Echoing McMetal's earlier post, but is anyone finding the Walgreens Mr. Fantastic yet? I haven't seen them yet personally, but noticed some reviews starting up online, so I was wondering.

I prefer the old Toybiz build-a-figures personally, but I'm also often biased to first releases of things.  I'm also not a big FF or X-Men guy, but its my opinion if it helps.  I have checked out a few Walgreens here and there, but no sign of Mr Fantastic in Minneapolis just yet.

Finally tracked down Mr Fantastic by using the "Find in store" option on their website.  ;D

I love him! Can't wait for the Thing now!

Picked up the Starlord/Ego 2-pack at Target for $11.98. I've been waiting it out on clearance but I'm not sure it will go lower than that. Nice set, I never realized it's a different Starlord than the single packed version.

I found 90s Deadpool at Gamestop the other day, and snagged it.

I'm trying to save some extra cash for a case of the Lizard BAF wave, even though I really just want the Mysterio figure from that wave.

Found the Deadpool wave of Legends at Target this week. I didn't pick any up, but they do look nice. I kind of want the Sasquatch BAF, but I don't necessarily want the entire wave to get him.
