Will Hasbro make the HK as a single figure? instead of a BAD at some point? That is one awsome figure that I don't want to have to hunt down...

It is unfortunate that responsibilities impede the ability to gather more often.
Nice to see Alex yesterday, your ability to plough through St.Augistines 'City of God' yet not be able to suffer the Republic Commando series is a growth spurt not anxiously awaited for.



Dome show this weekend!
woo-hoo

That wouldn't be a bad idea since it's an awesome figure.

Even after building HK, if he were released on a single card down the road, then I'd get him again (especially if the paint job is different).

saw that too. no red hulk though.

why is it that every figure in the marvel univers that's human is all pretty much the same height? Except for hulk and thing, they're all the same height, no variance.

Also, did you spot Ms. Marvel there? She's looking TOO HOT TO HANDLE!

just found out there is a BACKLOG of toys in the back room in one particular store. Woman I talked to said there was a bunch of SW in there that can't go out because the pegs are still pretty full.

On a side note, I picked up Moon Knight and Red Hulk. I'm debating on keeping him for myself. He's pretty big.

And you accepted that reasoning?

Nothing to report at 2T, 9N, or 0F today....

0C has gotten the TESB wave. I spotted at least 2 of each figure this afternoon...all champagne parts, Hoth Trooper has the skirt.

LOTS of Saga Legends figures on the pegs. I predict they'll be there for a long time.

Oh, was she at 7V too? I didn't notice her. I've only seen her (both versions) twice so far.

Good score!

Assuming you're referring to Red Hulk, I say keep him. Red Hulk is [censored] awesome!!!

If you didn't see her, look for the wal-mart special figure inside her package. hence the "too hot to handle" figure.

(someone bought her, stole the figure, replaced with a dollar sotre fig and returned)

I saw new, single packed 2-inch Unleashed figures in the blue/white packaging (Cody, Ventress, Shock Trooper, Gree, Yoda, Kit Fisto, etc) at Wal-Mart and the sign above them said $5.24 each!
I didn't scan one, but if that is the price, that's crazy!

if you only knew how many times I get asked about these kind of "original Hasbro variants" and how much are they worth....

If anyone still collects Cars, K-mart has about 10 or so exclusive cars. Most of them were still available this evening. 9 of them are race cars with rubber tires. Todd (Pizza Planet) was also available, as well as a chase Andretti. I don't know if they are also exclusive.
Also, I think I saw one with a 3 3/4 GI Joe action figure stuffed in the package.

I took my nephew to K-Mart this morning for the event. They also had Mini & Patty.

Found some fresh MU Wave 4 cases on the pegs and a side end-cap, and some new red packaged Saga Legends and one case of Legacy ESB wave at the Vestal, NY Wal-Mart at midnight!

Baltar, I didn't see the Hoth Trooper, but a Wally clerk I know there said it was the skirted version.
Just like the case they got there the week before!

Ah, I see. I think the non-skirt version has mainly been showing up at Target.
