consider it the rest of the Maximum Venom wave -- with two heroes we have not done from the new cartoon paired with two villains we have not done in the animated style.

Are they venomized or just regular animated styles?

From the Spider-Man cartoon, I'm assuming? Unless there's a new marvel 'toon I'm unaware of?

Yes, I meant the latest Spidey cartoon, we have done them from previous cartoons.

I think they'll hit mid-March, and I'll be promoting around then. Might try to get them in the case at ECCC.

So... September in NEPA?

Or maybe not?

I just found out half of my area Walgreens stores are closing. (For those who've been paying attention, that's one of two stores. Some cities get a Walgreens on every other block. Mine got two.) That explains why the pegs have been so barren the last few weeks. 

The really odd thing is that all the prescriptions are being transferred to the CVS across the street, not the Rite Aid a few blocks away.

I'd love to know when all these Rite Aid stores are being rebranded as Walgreens and stocked accordingly. Rite Aid is everywhere here.

Has anyone seen the last Spider-Man Animated wave?  I recently found the Black Widow wave at my local store, but have never found the Superior Spider-Man/Peter Parker set in the wild.

I never see movie ‘mates in my part of Brooklyn and since I am self-isolating because of virus concerns, it’s eBay for me.

Same here. But I recall another series being leapfrogged by a special wave (Venom?) and it still showed up.

COVID-19 is doing nothing for the uncertainty but it's cool that one of my local Minimates vendors is considered essential and stays open.

Will Walgreens even be getting it anytime soon? With Diamond no longer delivering product, that's gotta impact Walgreens and all of specialty, not just comic shops.

I'm guessing, for those that do go out, they're going to start finding Waves 10, 11, Max Venom, and Black Widow much more often due to clearing back stock.

Makes sense. I just wish it didn't take a global pandemic to get my plastic crack to the pegs.

I am not sure if Diamond no longer shipping new product to comic shops will affect us shipping to Walgreens. I do not know where we are with Series 12 and 13, but I will try to find out. They're both great waves. I think people will like 13 a lot.

I'm in the City and before the Lockdown I didn't see them. Finally just said eff it and ordered from Luke. Selfish of me I'm sure but keeping that  particular small business going is one of my top concerns.

Is that the same for wave 78? Or does that fall under the comic shop category?

Wave 79 will I assume not ship until things return to some semblance of normal. BUT I do not know where they are in production, as the virus first affected factories in China.

People on the twitters are talking Juneteeth. I am starting to believe that Jessica Lange meme is a prophecy.

What are the walgreen 12 and 13 waves? Hints?

Any word on when the maximum venom mates will hit stores due to recent events?
