I just found the Iron Man 2020 Walgreens exclusive on their app this morning for pre order if anyone is interested.

"Response By Email (Oneida) (01/28/2020 11:53 AM)
Hi Benjamin,
 
Thank you for contacting us regarding your Marvel Legends White Rabbit figure. I was saddened to hear that the accessory piece broke.
 
Regrettably, this figure and its parts are not available for me to replace. If you require additional assistance, kindly reply with the following information:
 
 
- Age and gender of the person using this product
- Date and location of purchase
- Date code of product (five digit number stamped on the product as well as the packaging, looks like 12345 or ELM 12345)
- Vendor code (also found on the product and packaging, looks like c-123g)
 
Warm regards,
Oneida

I can try to go further with the issue,  but so far u haven't had time. They have replaced bad build a figure pieces for me before. Not sure what happened this time.

Where did you happen to see those pics?

Thanks guys. Yeah I'd say it looks pretty cartoony too. It's Harley Quinn so there will be at least 13 more versions before McFarlane loses the license.  I think I'll wait on her. My comic store posted that the comic Superman figure came in yesterday so that will about do it for me.  I do want to check out the armored characters in person before deciding.

Does anybody know if the Harley Quinn is supposed to be a comic version or an animated version? Her face looks kind of animated, but the proportions of her body have a classic comic element to them. The packaging doesn't really help because it says Harley Quinn classic like it is referring to the comics......but... .the could be classic animation too. O
I've picked up Comic Batman,  Nightwing,  Batgirl,  and Batman who laughs as well at the Raptor.  These are my first ever DC figures (well collectible ones anyway.  I did have a ton of Batman stuff from the Tim Burton movies when I was a kid in the 90s)

My FF wave arrived 2 weeks ago and I haven't opened it yet even.  My new Spider-Man wave arrived a week before that and I only have opened 3 figures so far.  White Rabbit's weapon snapped in half immediately and I emailed hasbro and they basically told me that's too bad and there are NOOOOO replacements available.  That soured me from opening anything else.  I love this stuff, but the fatigue is setting in.

Fish hit the nail on the head with the x- titles. Immortal hulk is amazing.....only reason I'm behind on that is from all of the x-title nonsense I'm slugging through.  Just read x-men 4....whole issue was literally a meeting with other international leaders. It's making mutants sound like jerks.  I'm hoping they get better soon. Still need to get around to thor also.  I've been catching up on, and more importantly,  really enjoying DC lately. For the first time ever it's really put marvel on the back burner.

I understand wanting to give up. I'm in so deep that I'm almost afraid to give it up.  What I mean by that is I'm afraid something stupid will happen that will make a back issue ridiculously overpriced for 5 years, so if I stop and want to pick it back up I'll be too discouraged to do so.  Avengers has been pretty boring, and I am about 9 issues behind on Ironman. I was fairly caught up on Fantastic Four and Thor, but then the "big" War of the Realms event happened that totally burned me out.  I have 2 short boxes full of comics released in the last 8 or 9 months or so that I am behind on.  The Carnage event burned me out too and I ca't seem to get excited about Venom anymore. I just got to Amazing Spider-Man 32 or so.  Life does get in the way, but the comics are getting so complicated at times that it gets hard to jump back in. I more so enjoy picking up a Marvel Masterworks collected edition and reading enjoyable old stories.

Nice. Be sure to read Powers of X also. There are a few memorable issues that I really enjoyed.  I will be sure not to spoil anything on here either.

Thanks Chooch and Gardner Grayle for the help!!  I think I'll start up with the McFarlane stuff since I don't have old DC stuff to pair it with and ill get a fresh start HOPING that Todd gets the character selection right.  I was wanting to get some sneak peeks at the the next few waves so I could have some hope for the future of this newly created line.  I have a Neca diorama set that I never opened that these figures would look great on. I have to imagine that if history is any indicator of DC LINES we will surely get Wonder Woman, Flash, a few Lanterns, etc.....I just hope it's not all Bat- focused.  We DEFINITELY need a good selection of bad guys!!!

Is anyone reading anything really good from Marvel right now?  It's so hard to keep up with the pull lists from four universes (Marvel, IDW, DC, and Boom Power Rangers)

The new X-Titles have been readable except for Fallen Angels. Im trying so hard to care about the characters,  but I just don't.  The concept of Krokoa acting as a homebase is interesting but bringing everyone back from the dead really lowers the stakes and I've always enjoyed X-books much more with smaller casts. There are just too many characters that don't interest me.  Sadly Marvel makes it so you can't shrink your pull list because if you miss a critical issue and you are a few months behind you have to pay 10 times the cover price to catch up 2 months later. That really irritated me with the first appearance of Weapon H a while back.  I settled for a second printing. 

I'd really prefer if they put out half as many titles, but made them very high quality  and great stories that I was excited to get to. It would be easier to not miss issues. Make the universe matter and quit putting a character in 12 different titles on 9 different teams.

I am considering that option along with the other comic based characters.  I am not sure about the Harley Quinn figure. She is supposedly "classic comic" but that face looks like an animated version. It looks well enough,  but that style just isn't for me. I like the idea that McFarlane is doing vehicles as well. I'm still on the fence about back collecting Mattel Multiverse  or DCUC. Some of the characters are ridiculously priced (Jessic Cruz, Batwoman) which is turning me away. Yes, first world problems, I know.

I realize that this thread hasn't been updated for a while. I'm a huge Marvel Legends collector as well as Transformers (Masterpiece, generations, etc)  I also have really been enjoying the new Hasbro Power Rangers as well. My question is........is it worth getting into DC?  I really only like 6 inch scale figures. I've seen some of the McFarlane stuff at Target, but they don't scale with anything.  I've been getting into DC comics and want to try the figures, but is it worth it?

Found Thing at my Walgreens in Elkhart, Indiana!!  They had about 9 of him sitting on an end cap across from the regular toy aisle. They also had a tag for Magik printed and hanging on a peg, but she was nowhere to be found...yet....hopefully soon!!

I dont mind too much if they reissue popular characters like Wolverine or Spider-Man from time to time. I just got back into Marvel Legends a little over a year ago and the Vintage line, for example, allowed me to pick up the "pizza Spidey" for a fair price. It is a great way for newer collectors to sort of catch up and in that type of Vintage line it's awesome. What I don't like is when they reissue figures or make slight changes and include them in regular Marvel Legends Build a Figure waves and force you to buy multiples of the same character.
