  1. MAX and Battle Beast were my favorite lines. I also really enjoyed the Pathfinder stuff having zero knowledge of the property itself. I’d love to see them re-visit MAX and Battle Beasts, along with a deeper dive into Marvel Comics, not movies. But all of that is null and void if I can’t find them in any store they may be exclusive to.
  2. I’ve been collecting since I first picked up wave 1 of the Marvel series at Suncoast, and the clearanced Trek ones at Target. I’ve been able to get 99% of them at retail - up until Walgreens. Wave 8 and up - lost me. I’ve only seen Avengers BC and Captain Marvel since then. Walgreens doesn’t seem to know what to do with them. If they had an online presence beyond that one wave, I’d probably still be all in. But my interest in the past year has barely gone beyond buying Luke’s customs. I’m just too busy with life and family to make the fruitless retail runs anymore. If anything kills this line, it will be undoubtedly distribution, not interest. I’d love to find any of those missing waves. But time spent with my family and daughters is too precious to waste on “the hunt”. Give me an online presence and I’ll bite. But I’m not chasing them into every Walgreens with an open wallet while they run away from me, daring me to catch them just for the privilege of buying them.
  3. I just noticed Mystique is on walgreens website for order at 13.99 also.
  4. This past weekend I went to a Walgreens after a long hiatus just to see what was there. Still no wave 8, 9 or 10. However I happily purchased a Marvel Legends Mystique and Genis-Vell for 13.99 each, leaving behind the Captain Marvel movie minimates.
  5. You could always do a one per person, but create a multiple man backdrop with numerous others to include with him.
  6. If only he had an extra white Puck hand to hold the stand out in front of him like a portal.... Like the extra head though!
  7. I like the idea. I think it would at least be as interesting to buyers as the whole Avengers BC concept, probably moreso.
  8. I found two packs today while there looking for Marvel Legends. Shock of shocks, new minimates. Only two though because there was no more room on the pegs with waves 7 and previous rotting there. BTW, very happy to finally complete the Marvel Legends Fantastic Four with the Thing! It's a great figure!
  9. Wherever it's offered, it's better than Walgreens.
  10. I can’t be the only one who would like an Andy Kaufmann, right?
  11. I've stopped checking Walgreens. My excitement for any new stuff, beginning with wave 8, 9 and IW2, is gone.
  12. I’m with you on that. If the seller counters with less than a dollar reduction, I will decline and write off the auction entirely. Seems like a pointless thing to do if that’s all they’re going to offer.
  13. Seems to still be in stock. But they've been so screwed up with their inventory of this line, it might have sold out and restocked.
  14. I guess what appeals to me is that I don't want or need figures that are the "next level". I look at Megos with the eyes of my 6 year old self, not the with the blurred vision of the 47 year old eyes I have today. Oh, they will be opened and displayed with my originals. I've bought vintage ones and they were opened as well. These are childhood loves, not investments. They were my first exposure to Super Hero toys and have a special place in my collection. And, they are out. Went looking for Sulu and found Chekov today! Didn't even know Chekov was part of the release. He has Kirk and Spock pictured on his package instead of the Gorn and Roman. Lots of other licenses, but no Sulu, Action Jackson or Mirror Mirror 2-pack.
  15. I can imagine a Hanna Barbera package for a 2-pack looking something like a retro TV set with posed figures in the screen.
