I was reading Q&A recently at GH.com the other day, and Adam Pawlus said in it that Captain Antilles was a pegwarmer (or something to that effect), and kinda trashed the figure for being made...
It may be the case in some areas, but in Pittsburgh he's not overly common, or "pegwarming" by any means. I think his potential as an army builder has helped him sell steadily. Dodonna's a LITTLE more prevelant, but not by much.
I just didn't see him as the pegwarmer some have... I run into one here and there, maybe a few at a K-Mart or KB where figures are more $, but at WM's, Targets, and TRU's, Antilles is drying up.
Same with Ozzel and other of that ilk... The customizers and army builders have spoken in my book, and they'll pick one of those up every whipstitch it seems.
The same thing happens with BBI's Elite Force figures at Toys R Us. They get a glut, then slowly but surely they sell, one by one. It's really an impressive thing to kinda monitor when you're shopping.
Some folks out htere must have impressive armies going. I wanted another Antilles or two but damned if I can get them now. Gotta check some of the lower traffic stores perhaps.
