    wave 77

    Same here... East coast, no wave 8 or 9 ever spotted in about 15 stores.

    Stan Lee passes away

    RIP Stan Lee. Thanks for the memories. A very sad day indeed.

    Minimate compatibility thread

    Yes it is. Fits in great with minimates.

    Ask Zach

    Oh that show was great fun, I really enjoyed both seasons. That last episode from S1... what a finish. Season 2 couldn't get here fast enough.

    TRU Series 26

    Wow, I'm late to the party on this one! Thanks for the heads up Zach, got my order in for the two non- mutant packs. The estimated arrival date is pretty quick, these could be here by the weekend!

    Minimates price hike?

    For me personally I've already seen a price increase on minimates. When all of the local shops stopped carrying the line I had to start ordering comic mates online. I'm not the only one affected as I've seen more than one person mention the same situation. I was paying $8 per pack at the shops plus tax. Online prices are between $8.99 and $9.99 per pack at most e-tailers plus shipping. I was paying $7.50 plus tax per pack at TRU and now they are gone. Walgreens is the only game in town for minimate purchases and the last three waves haven't shown in my area for five months. I usually only want a pack or two from each animated wave but it's costly. eBay prices are insane. Online stores also charge a premium price for Walgreens mates. Dont even get me started on box set prices... Options are dwindling and collecting my favorite toy line is becoming harder and costlier than ever. I'm not in favor of any sort of price increase.

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    Not a problem Luke. As long as the order went through it's all good! Thanks.

    Custom Marvel Minimate Preorder Thread

    Luke, have you sent invoices out yet? I placed an order around 5:30 pm yesterday and want to make sure it got through. Haven't seen an invoice so I thought I'd better check. Thanks!

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    Another exciting round of finding nothing this weekend. I hit 6 stores that are a little further out and saw tons of IW1 restocks. Ragnarok and BP we're also on display along with the Zemo wave. Pegs (yes, two in some stores) were fully packed so it doesn't look like there will be restocks any time soon. Exciting!!! 🙄👎

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    I also adjust the peg in the stores I frequent. None of mine have two pegs, only the one. And, I posted this in the wrong thread the other day so I moved it here... Spent a few more hours on Friday searching in vain for new Walgreens minimates... nothing to report. I'm starting to grow very tired of the search that never ends. If anyone is selling the Enchantress pack from wave 9 or Cull Obsidian pack from IW2 at cost I'd be interested. I was going to purchase the Wasp pack from wave 8 but can't be bothered to care anymore.

    Infinity War

    No sign of these anywhere near me yet again.

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    Just went back and checked my previous post in this thread and it was from April 22nd. It's been 4 + months I've been looking for new Walgreens releases and it's not like that was the first time. Very disheartening.

    Animated Marvel 'Mates

    After weeks of searching a wide area of stores my 3 closest stores finally restocked... with IW1 and the Zemo wave. Ridiculous. The stores further out had even older stock. No sign of IW2 or waves 8 or 9 anywhere near me. Again. When does the fun begin?

    Infinity War

    Still no signs of IW2 or the last animated wave anywhere near me. I even went a bit out of my normal search range and still nothing. I'm starting to think it might be better for me if Walgreens doesn't pick up any of the comic waves that TRU's demise has left open for a new home. They were only speculated as a possible replacement but as someone stated previously, they aren't a toy store. Their distribution, which once seemed like it was getting on track, is spotty at best. Still searching...

    Toys R Us closing all 800+ US stores

    I went to a few TRU today since the end of days is near. Last time I visited the sales were at 20 or 30% and there was still decent stock. Big change from then to now! All stores had over half the floor space roped off and everything was piled on the remaining shelves near the front. Mainly went to have a last look at the locations I've haunted for so many years buying Marvel Legends and Minimates. Tomorrow I'll visit the one I've gone to since I was little, it used to be a Children's Palace back then. I feel old. Didn't see many minimates other than Dark Tower and a couple Ragnarok packs. Would have grabbed 3 or 4 NBX vampire packs but there were none to be found. I did pick up a deluxe wood chess set I've had my eye on for awhile. I was surprised there was still one left as most had disappeared right at the start of the sales. I also picked up that big Funko Lockjaw plush that's been sitting there... I don't know why. I made eye contact with it and the damn think was just staring at me with the sadest "don't leave me here" eyes in the world, lol. So I bought him. Next time friends tell me I need a dog I'll point to him. My only regret is that I never visited the flagship store in Times Square before it closed a few years ago. I'll bet it was something to see. Sunday will be my last trip to a Toys R Us store but I'll always be a Toys R Us kid. Thanks for the memories.
