I don't believe these are out yet - but I am pretty sure he has previously said that he would nab it for people that want him to grab it for them when they are released.

My stance on these is that for these Target light up base sets to have had the best potential for selling them out - they should have been available at the launch of the line.  I could be wrong, and they could sell very well when the movie drops - I just really doubt that will happen. 

I already bought one of every figure for like $4.25 plus tax each from the TRU 2 for $11 plus using the coupons - I am not going to rebuy the figure for $13 just to get a light up base.

sad to say but clearance at 75% off - for $3.25 each is probably going to be the only thing that motivates me to possibly grab them.

they are different sellers - the first time around it was with Tunghori, now its ws_toys.

still not certain which way I wanna go with this set...  Get just Teek for $20, or have phruby nab me one for $40 plus tax and shipping.  That way I will have "Kaink" - which will never see the light of day again - and I get the clown imp (not really wanted - but it will be "unique" in the collection) - and Ree-Yees with camera (meh).

Thinking I am leaning towards phruby.

This is at the top of my wanted list - cannot wait for this one.  Has it been stated yet the price or the retailer that is going to be selling it?

seriously awaiting other figurs fromt his line other than Iron Man.  At this point I have one of every figure available - far too many Iron Man figures - yet I am loving just about each of his other suits that are on the way and wil; be adding them to my armory.

But I really do want other characters - can't believe the portrayed main bad guy from this movie isn't/wasn't available in these first waves.

Also, the Snow Job and Zartan that are on ebay now won't have near as many accessories when they're released this fall.

whoa - that one sucks right there!  I really like the Zartan figure and all he comes with - and the mere fact that Snow Job comes (or would have come) with all that cool **** was the only factor that had me re-buying yet another Snow Job figure - so Hasbro is gonna lose a sale (or several) from me on this.

You have a link to where they say they are going to be canning all this stuff?  I remember reading about dropping the actor's likeness', but the drop in accessories is what I am not remembering.  

So am I to assume that both Zartan and Ripcord will have different heads?  If so, are there pics out for their new heads?  linky please   ;D

edit:  Ok, I saw in some pics over at CTR that in the display at TF, Zartan still had the ROC head with what looks like all of his accessories, but in the "Press Images" it is more of a Resolute style headsculpt showing him only with his machine gun (I sure hope he comes with more than just his machine gun - I want it all).  The deco between the two are also very different - with press release version looking way too clean.  The same thing can be said in the differences between the old/new variations of Jungle Duke - he is a lot cleaner now too.

Anyway, Now I guess I am still curious as to what accessories will be coming with Zartan and Snow Job, and am also still looking for a pic of what Ripcords head will look like now.

ps - can I still expect Dusty and Recondo to come with everything they were shown with at Toy Fair?

And for the record, that Wolverine looks even worse in person than it did in the pics.  Ugh.

and see there is something odd about that which coincides with the whole absence of these variants.  I did see several of these Wolvies hanging on pegs at retail - they are all gone now - but each one of them had horrid headculpts/paint apps.

iirc, the site that hosts the images for these variants and said Wolverine - the Wolverine on their site had a pretty damn nice looking headsculpt.  So where did their nice Wolvie come from, and where the heck are the variants they showed off?  Sketchy? - maybe - although very odd - that Vision variant looks perfect and to be the real deal.

This morning I put some silver duct tape on the sprayer in my kitchen sink so when my wife turned it on she got hosed - that was funny.  It was even funnier when I got myself with my own gag washing off my coffee spoon before my wife woke up (I already forgto about my own trick).

Running an April Fools day joke in advance isn't funny at all - I am gonna go out on a limb and hope that it isn't a fake - perhaps they are playing it off as a fake by not really talking about it - perhaps the name for the chase figures line itself is just the fake but the figures in the deco really are coming.

all they have at my local Target are 4 filled pegs which only contain about 5 Baronness' from the first wave, and all the rest are the generic Cobra Viper.   ::)

Turtle Viper must not have won over too many fans in my area I guess.

I wonder if the Hulk is a repeat or an upgrade?

I could be wrong, but to me the top half of the case breakdown are the brand new figures for this wave, and I think from Iron Patriot on down the figures are repacks.  I am pretty sure that both Iron Patriot and Wrecker are coming out in the wave proceeding this one, and Colossus is coming out two waves before it.  Red/Blue Spiderman is of course mos tlikely the classic one, and as for Hulk, its not a bad thing getting him out again - he doesn't peg warm.

I guess if they were going to do anything different with Hulk at this point - I could see them repainting the one from the comic pack with a less "vibrant comic stylized" coloring, otherwise I think it is still too early in the line to see a retooled or brand new one.

edit:  From CTR:   Captain Britain is a fan-favorite with several different costumes to choose from...which version will we see?

Sharp-eyed fans may have noticed that the A.I.M. Soldier from wave 9 is very similar to the classic Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider, so it's a good guess to thin this is the version we'll get.

It's possible that Multiple Man could get a "Fans' Choice Runner Up" (much like Luke Cage did), since he was part of last year's poll, although he did not win....might he be the final figure that has yet to be revealed?

On the other hand, Mystique WAS a winner in the poll, so it's a safe bet that she'll be designated as such.

Finally, another Wolverine, but in his "Team X" uniform. This is the cool spy gear from the flashback tales in the early issues of the Jim Lee-illustrated X-Men series. It's unknown if this will be using the standard Marvel Universe buck, or perhaps rescuing a figure from the ill-fated X-Men Origins: Wolverine line.

side note edit:    just noticed on HTS that Vision and Warpath are no longer even listed on the site - that sucks becuase I know this wave was real hard for some people to get

user Goldbug over at rebelscum posted a link showing off more new figures to come in a case breakdown on bbts -

Case Includes:

Captain Britain x 1
Team X Wolverine x 2
Multiple Man x 2
Mystique x 1
Ghost Rider x 1
Iron Patriot x 1
Wrecker x 1
Colossus x 1
Spider-Man (Red / Blue) x 1
Hulk x 1

I like the sound of those new figures- bring em on! Although, this just goes to show we will be buying Ghost Rider twice - you just know they are gonna put him out on his bike sometime, right?!?!

Oh well, I'll bite - something about this line is still too shakey for me too hold off on passing things.

all SW figures on sale at TRU 2 for $10.99

also, at Meijer this week vehicles are on sale for $14

I think the only thing that I haven't picked up yet, and kinda want from the ROC line is the Wild Bill/Dragonhawk.  But I don't want it enough to pay $25 - so I am holding off.

As for the $25 Pit, I debated getting it if I ever saw it go that low - but I decided I would rather save the space/money for the AT-AT.
