Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

Bought Electro at Target today thanks to a tip from a fellow collector.
I'm glad I got him now because he doesn't show up in case assortments/revisions until Wave 6!
I just noticed that Electro's mask has the bolts aside of his cheeks pointing slightly down instead of slightly up like the package illustration!
Actually, I think different artists draw it either way.

Fred Meyers has a Buy-2-Get-1-Free sale this week on action figures, so I bought Union Jack and Red Hulk, and got Black Panther for free!

I also bought Guardian at a Wal-Mart earlier this week.

I picked up the Spider-Man and Amazing Friends MU pack at TRU. Someone else had returned one after they replaced Firestar with a modern Ms. Marvel.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

Hey Peeps!

Picked up Toy Biz Marvel Legend Beta Ray Bill while in Paris a few weeks ago, from an awesome comic shop called Album, in the Saint Michel shopping district.

This shop was located on the corner of the main street - and was on a block of retail shops which had about 8-9 comic book/collectible/sci-fi/fantasy stores within a 50 metre radius! One of the best things was, I was staying at a little 2-star hotel on the same block!

There were so many kewl things, so much to see, it was exhausting - so the only item I purchased there was Beta Ray Bill - a figure I have been wanting for a long, long time. It cost 14 Euro - working out to be $30.00 NZ approx - pretty good, I thought.

I would have purchased more things, but it was at the beginning of a six week backpacking trip through Europe, so I had a rather limited carrying capacity for the trip - which was amazing!!!! Saw so many awesome sights, met some great people, and ate some delicious dishes!!!!

Still, it's nice to be back in New Zealand now, after a great time abroad.

EDIT: Also saw some of the latest Marvel Universe waves at Forbidden Planet on Shaftsbury Avenue in London. They had an enormous repository of comics, and some great action figs! I was tempted to pick up a Red Hulk figure, but bag room didn't permit me...

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

found the series 2 wave 1 MU figures at TRU today and picked up House of M Spidey and Vision - left the rest there because i have them on order with hasbrotoyshop. I have to say that seeing them in person - they all look really good, except for the new wolverine - that's one fugly figure.

I also picked up the ML 2 pack White Hand Ninja and Dum Dum Dugan (which is going on my trade list if anyone is looking for that pack - pm me)

Grabbed a MU Vision today. Love the figure and finally... figure stands! House of M Spidey looks great too; will grab that one down the line. Still looking for Electro and Namor.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

I figured we wouldn't see the Vision & Sunfire wave until mid-November. Jeez! Looks like the Christmas push is on!
It seems that Wal-Mart's are getting long tray-like MU assortments containing Electro's, silver Iron Man's, Captain America, Silver Surfer and more.

Seen both a couple of times but had to pass on them because of the crappy paint jobs. Especially the Namor.

Yeah, I saw Namor (and Guardian, for that matter) once and the p.j. was pretty rough, so I passed. Have yet to see Electro in the wild though.

So...Are the extra Jokers spoken for? If not, I could use one MOC if you're feeling generous. For trade or purchase, your call...

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

Why has Hasbro placed "Marvel's Sunfire" on Sunfire's packaging? Is there another Sunfire out there in some fictional universe?
What did I miss?

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

Not sure if this fits, but with Halloween stuff 75% off at Walmart, I got my 5 yr. old 4 costumes for $5 each. Capt. America, Wolverine, Black Spiderman and Accel. Suit Duke from GI Joe ROC. They all have the "muscle padding". I'm his favorite Dad now. I would have killed for costumes like that when I was a kid.

Picked up MU Guardian, Sub-Mariner, and Electro in the past week. Nice figures, all, and much improved bodies for Guardian and Sub-M, but what's with the baseball mitt left hands on those?!?!
Haven't seen any later MU waves around yet.

They look a smidge too large but they're still eclipsed by the dc infinite heroes hands. And they're not as bad as wave 1's punisher and black panther's hand.
