    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    These have been a journey to find locally. I've gone a few times a month to see if the latest two waves (especially wave 8) came out in which I came out empty every time. I've never had that problem with previous retail exclusives. A couple of weeks ago I had a day free where I chose to drive to/ around San Jose to see if could track series 8 or 9. I visited 13 stores (I still have the map) and none of which had any of the newest series. It wasn't until a week later when I went to visit a friend who was much closer from where I lived than the San Jose locations that I found the only store in that city to be carrying just 1 of the Enchantress and Kraven series. The distribution and accessibility of the latest 2 waves has certainly been a interesting. I just hope any future Walgreens waves doesn't fall into the same pattern as that'd be detrimental to a collectors motivation to either spend time collecting to find something at several locations or cash out to scalpers.

    Marvel NOW! Minimates Blind Bag Series

    yup, seems it is a common error for this figure in that it needed more coats of yellow.

    TRU Wave 16

    My TRU has had the same 3 sets for over a month now. Slightly irritating because I stopped by 3 TRU that were an hour away and decided to look for them since I was in the area that day and to my surprise they had them. Sadly they only had 1 set left so I picked it up. I thought since a TRU that's an hour away has them, my local TRU should get them as well but boy have I been wrong Usually I'm able to always find them but this wave is taking really LONG. I don't want to break down and pay $10 for shipping from because every time I have, they end up showing up in stores. Just got to remember "Patience is a Virtue."

    TRU wave 14

    Found a full set of all 4. Only picked up Havok/Storm and Box/Vindicator. I was surprised to find these early since the last Toys r Us wave arrived kinda late in stores but by then I had already ordered them online. Glad I found these, saved me some money on shipping :biggrin:

    Alpha Flight Minimates!

    To me, she looks weird since she has no eyebrows, but it's something I can get use to.

    Toys R Us 2012 Fan Poll Box Set

    Agree, Phoenix Emma would have been a better fit due to her being more featured in the comic than the Phoenix Buster. It was only in 1 issue. Although, it was the reason why the Phoenix was split into the 5 other X-men.

    Toys R Us 2012 Fan Poll Box Set

    So, does this mean Phoenix Force Cyclops, Scarlet Witch, Protector and Phoenix Buster Iron Man are the winners? If so, I'm satisfied :biggrin:
