"Beginning May 8th..." and it showed up on the 17th. :rolleyes:

Wow, and I usually trust what I see on tru.com to be accurate...like the words 'in-stock'.

Wow, there is some really cool stuff we might see!

In my eyes the coolest accessories come with

Galactus: a mini Silver Surfer!

Nova: a new fire-base as part of her hair!

Terrax: an asteroid and a flight base for that!

:thumbsup:

It would be nice if we could see bigger pics of them. If you click on the image, it brings up a "Thank you for voting" page, and apparently, there is no limit to the number of times you can vote. Gotta love the TRU website.

BS

That, or your vote doesn't have an impact at all. :whistling:

I really wish the poll had check boxes and would allow you to pick your top 4 choices instead of just one.

I agree that Galactus will be seen one way or another, so I'd prefer the box to be all Heralds.

That said, I'm gonna need a few of those mini-Surfers. Hello Ant-Man, Wasp & (for DC) Atom!! :D

Voted for Galactus but then voted for Air Walker. He just looks too cool.

Just voted for Terrax due to my love of characters with non-cliche element powers (i.e. anything OTHER than Fire, Ice and Thunder).

I agree wiuth both of the above comments.

I think I see how TRU is doing this poll, and it is a really lazy way of doing it. If you look at the source code, there is nothing special that happens when you choose a character. It simply takes you to a thank you page for that character. There is no PHP or Javascript running that submits your vote. Therefore they are basing this completely on which thank you pages get the most hits. They are probably using unique page hits, so that multiple hits per person per page won't count. But this resets each day, and this method would still let you vote for multiple characters each day. I am just blown away by how lazy this is.

I'm voting for Galactus... on many different computers... many times a day... every day... and I'll get people I know to do it too!

I'm just not down with a 2-inch Galactus. Gimme a Minimate-flavored Galactus bank (ala Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man) and I'll be tickled shitless. I don't need another wee Galactus.

i'm kinda torn. I really want to vote for Morg or AirWalker to make sure they get the best chance of release as i feel they're the least know / most obscure - but i also love the look of Galactus & Nova and want them in the set.

Lukes right - it would have been nice to be able to pick 4.

Morg's the only one I don't care about. I voted for Air-Walker, as he seems to be the least likely of the ones that I do want (I did the same for Molecule Man back in the SW voting).

Honestly, it's all "win" with this selection.

Except for Morg. :tongue:

I accidentally voted for Nova even though I really wanted to vote for Air Walker. I thought clicking her image would take me to a bigger image or design sheet. But at least I didn't vote for Morg.

I gotta say, that Firelord Minimate design is pretty damn bad ass. I hope he ends up being one of the final 4. Galactus and Terrax are the only shoe-ins, IMO. Nova and Firelord would seem to be next most well-known, and Morg seems most boring and forgettable, but who knows who TRU.com visitors are gonna vote for?

I was gonna vote... 'til I realized there wasn't a blank for Kang. ;)

Quick, Marvel, make Kang a herald of Galactus, so he can be added to the poll! :D
