People are starting to find these at TRU on what seems to be the West Coast or at least out West. $18.99 or so each.
...O.O THAT much money for one figure AT RETAIL? REALLY!? Well...there goes my interest.
I was going to buy Constrictor and Klaw, I only go for classic characters or looks primarily, but now I'm even wondering about that.
I have always been a DC guy since I started reading/collecting comics in the 90’s. I started to get more into Marvel a few years ago when Loeb and McGuinness started on Rulk. Ed McGuinness is my favorite artist so I was pretty pumped from SDCC to start collecting MLs since he was doing the cardbacks. I was able to find a variant case at a TRU on Thursday picked up Stealth IM, Hope, Orange Ghost Rider, Klaw, and Constrictor. Yesterday morning I had to drop off my Dad at the airport so I was only working a half day, I looked in the morning on the Target website link that was posted earlier and saw that every Target in my area (Buffalo/WNY suburbs) had them in stock so I stopped at a Target and gave a worker in electronics the DPCI and told him that there were none on the shelves and he said he would be right out with them. About 10 mins. later he coes out empty handed saying that they have a sign with them in back that they are part of the 2/26 reset and he couldn’t sel them to me. I was pretty bummed but oh well. I still had about a half hour to kill before I started work so I went to the next closest Target and found a guy stocking paper towels near the back, again I told hm the same thing there are none on the shelves could you bring them out? After about 5 mins. he comes out with a sealed case and opens it and asks me which ones I want? I ended up buying the whole case since it was a regular version. It was really awesome as I have never had luck with getting anything pulled for me from the back!
I’m am really digging these figures much more than recent DCUC. Now just a question for the Marvel buffs did Steve Rogers ever use the regular shield he comes with or only the ionic one that the variant comes with? The variant Rogers is the only figure I don’t have right now so I am wondering if I should try and find the variant version or not. Thanks in advance.
When Steve Rogers was in that outfit he didn't use his original shield. Bucky Cap had it. Steve was unsing an energy shield that originated from a gadget on his forearm that created the energy shield. So if you want one perfectly accurate, the energy shield one is the most "authentic" if you will. Sucks cause me being a Cap freak, I want the accurate one and it's going to be a pain.
By the way, I was also mostly a DC guy (except for Captain America being my #1 favorite character above all) but this recent "New 52!" thing really allowed me to break off and cut ties with DC. I was really turned off by this new move.
