Newbie (1/14)

  1. Been hunting the Hulk Loki funko movie set, found three of the packs on St Charles Rd in Villa Park. They had some newer animated sets too. Like Modok and Wasp. Actually looks like two full sets. Part is in the toy aisle, some on an endcap
  2. I'm glad to hear these are showing up finally. Kotter Comics totally hooked me up with the Cull Obsidian set. I was psyched to finally complete the Children of Thanos and get a fresh War Machine look. I'll post some collection pics later.
  3. I'm convinced the entire Midwest is just being neglected. I drove into Missouri last weekend, hit three random Walgreens in the rural/gas stop areas. Everyone was the same, mostly a peg full of animated mates, and 1-3 random packs of BP, Ragna, and IW1. I drove into Chicago for work yesterday, and on my trip home, I hit 5 different Walgreens. All pretty much the same as above. I'm ready to plea to the sub, looking for the War Machine/Cull Obsidian set. I can pay full retails, packaging, ship and something for gas/effort. Or trade, I got a lot to trade.
  4. Amen. Between the few near me, or my girlfriends place, I haven't seen a single two pack move off the pegs in a while. So I wonder where they are coming from.
  5. I second this. I've yet to see a single figure from the second wave of Walgreens sets in stores. Even the eBay listings are amazingly light.
  6. Checked all around the Western suburbs of Chicago and found nothing. Ranging from Carol Stream, West Chicago, to Aurora. Even tried Palatine the weekend before. It sucks being in the same radius as Menagerie, but that just means I feel great when I find a set that hasn't been scalped.
  7. So, I walked into my Walgreens today to get the figures. I had the same problem, the items couldn't be rung up. The manager on duty gave me a raincheck for the B1G1HalfOff. She emailed the help center, they are aware of the problem. The items should have gone on sale today, but there's a glitch where they still aren't ringing up. She said to call on Sunday to have them check if the registers were updated. Sigh. First world problems.
  8. Well, I just got off the phone with the Walgreens I was at this past Friday, and I was told March 3rd. The manager emailed their support center, and was told they couldn't sell them until then, so it's likely these were street dated and slipped out. If you have a set on hold anywhere, or plan to go hunting, Saturday is your day!
  9. Craaaaaaaap. So, I went to hit a Walgreens on my way home from dinner. Get in 10 minutes before close, and find the full set! Full on made my day. Got to the register, they wouldn't ring up. Items all said "Cannot be sold. Retain item and inform manager." in the register. So, left my name and number with the figures. Looks like Walgreens may already be hitting the brakes. Well, now I'm sad. Anyway, this was also in the Chicago burbs. Around West Chicago. Quick shout out to the Northlake finder earlier! That's my hometown. Sorry, I'm on mobile, otherwise I'd go back to find your name.
  10. Success! Finished my errands, saw The Inhumans, and hit a Walgreens on the route home. Saw one full set, snagged the ones I needed.
  11. The game is afoot! I'm on a day off from work for doctor and dentist appointments and there are multiple Walgreens in the area. Hunted through 4 this morning, found a single Thor-Hela pack. Just a small taste, but enough to get me plotting to find a few more on route to the other errands I want to run today. Is TRU worth stopping into yet? Or just Walgreens getting these so far?
  12. Ok, I've been to C2E2 every year since it started, but I've never taken part in any minimate meets or panel or whatever. What's the skinny?
  13. Oooh, I second this question. I have two sets in the cart right now, hoping to get an idea on stickers before I commit. I had no idea these +DD + Luke Cage were coming so quick! I'm feeling the hurt looking at my cart right now. Side question, is there any master list for previous stickers that are available? I remember that Korath The Pursuer was one, and I'm bummed I missed that sticker set. I have been growing my MCU display with customs, so more is always nice!
