  1. Corvus Glaive- speciality and Walgreens Ebony Maw- specialty Cull Obsidian- Walgreens The specialty sets are available now at Luke's. The specialty wave was formerly the TRU wave. Ymmv for finding stuff at Walgreens.
  2. I just necro'd the LOTR thread.
  3. Thread necro to as to avoid cluttering another thread. Wave 3- I was under the impression it never released but that there were some prototypes/paint masters that made it out. Is that correct? Also, wave 3 featured the Ringwraith 2 pack (based on weapons, it looked like Witchking and another), Lurtz/clear twilight Witchking, Strider/opaque twilight Witchking, and Eowyn/Armored Witchking. Arnim Zola, you've got picks of wave 3 in hand?
  4. I thought the only time they hit shelves was when they were on display shelves at TF, etc. (The LotR 'mates were nice, but I've always thought it was odd that out of the 8 slots in that wave, 4 were dedicated to the Witchking. He's cool and all, but that seemed like overkill.)
  5. Survivor Rick and Winter Zombie from TWD and the tracker from the Dark Tower have that scarf piece.
  6. Ditto for the most part. I've been scoping out several of the Memphis stores. Nothing new, except that someone recently cleared out the store closest to my house of IW, Ragnarok, and BP mates. So now I know there's another collector in my neck of the woods, which is cool. I don't collect as much these days, but someone is picking up my slack.
  7. It's almost like the recording quality and the playback quality make a difference to a listener's subjective interpretation. Which is just insane. But I heard yanny early this morning through phone speaker and Laurel through good head phones later.
  8. I can scope out too. If you're only interested in the Collector from that set, you can have mine for freesies.
  9. Also his name is wrong. He'll always be black dwarf to me. Gamora's accessory is cool. A Cap/Falcon two-pack to me will always be a homerun. Does Hulkbuster have the appropriate head under the slip cover mask?
  10. I was just about to pay some similar thinking. The best of/greatest hits waves seem complete, but they are missing some of the more recent popularity surges and some holes from the earlier waves. Starlord/Rocket Invisible Woman/Human Torch Black Widow/Doctor Strange Thanos/Black Panther I could see those as evergreen characters at this point.
  11. Those are beautiful, heinous! Yeah, they wouldn't work at all in a best-of wave type thing, but a wave would really make my day.
  12. DnA or bust. We'll soon have three releases of the MCU team plus the animated versions. The 2008 would be killer. Dream list: Starlord/Mantis Rocket/Bug Moondragon/Phyla Vell Vance Astro/Jack Flag BAF Groot With Drax/Adam Warlock(with Magus head) and Gamora/Cosmo at Walgreens.
  13. Ha! I just picked up quite a few minimates, and they had the additional 10% off as well. Also, despite being in the "collectible" aisle where everything is 20% off, they got the action figure 30% discount. So good savings.
  14. That's rad. TRU Lego prices mean I only ever pick up exclusives from them.
  15. I remember seeing you post that when it happened. It inspired to pull out the extra TFA Bucky I had. Those legs are nearly identical to the IW legs. Not at as detailed and cool looking as CW legs.
  16. I just got my Infinity War boxset in the mail. My son and I excitedly sat down to open it up and finish off wave 1. We were both disappointed when Winter Soldier's leg stayed in the packaging when the rest came out. Thanos was missing the upper right-hand slip cover. Basic QC issues can be a real bummer.
  17. I was pretty floored at the sheer number. I guess all of the sets that didn't end up in everyone else's stores ended up in mine.
  18. If anyone needs anything from this wave, pm me. I just left one of the local TRUs. They had about 15 of each set. The only set I purchased (not one of these) was 4.58 after taxes.
  19. As long as they shatter the time stone first.
  20. Yeah, Black Panther bit the dust. I overall thought it was a solid movie, probably one of the best in the MCU. I get that Tony Stark is the star of the MCU, but I think that it's kind of lame that he has had zero character development since Iron Man 1. The douche-off with Dr. Strange was fun though. Thor's journey has really taken an interesting turn, but I'm curious about what happened to everyone else there- Valkyrie, Korg, Miek, and about half of the remaining Asgardian population. Thor did mention that half his people died in the attack, but then he also goes on about having nothing left. Banner/Hulk had an interesting development. Hulk is a scaredy cat when he gets beat! Re Gamora: out of all of the pre-Infinity Gauntlet dusty deaths, hers is the one that I think will not stick, mostly because we saw her after that, even if in a different form. My thinking: She's not dead. A soul for a soul. I think that her soul is literally in/powering the soul stone. Some clients were just in my office, and one had a pretty good idea: After the dusted heroes come back, everything looks nice and normal. Then... Secret Invasion! He thinks the dead heroes might come back only to be later revealed as skrull-type impostors. Fun, rampant speculation.
  21. Just saw the movie, and it was really good. DST did a pretty good job with selection. Iron Man could really use some accessories, and Thor not coming with an extra head, arms, cape, and hammer is a major missed opportunity. Like, major. Hulk, imo, is a complete waste of a slot. I would have preferred an Armored Thanos in that slot.
  22. I'm the same. This isn't a scale line and never has been. DST does a good job of creating realistic tiny weapons, capturing a surprising number of details for the size. And handles/grips have suffered for it for a long time. Rifles generally don't fit in a minimate hand without stretching it out. Because a minimate hand is not at all shaped like a human hand. I hate to hear that has worsened with this weapon. I think a basic shield pistol may be a better accessory anyway.
