But how widespread are all of those?  Online etailers aren't shipping yet.  I suspect this bukkake will take a while to trickle down to everyone.


There seems to be one ML wave every year that never reaches my area. The last one had that update Wonder Man/Simon Williams figure. Hey, when are we getting official word on the next X-Men wave?!

KC, there seems to be wave after wave that never show up in my area.  All I ever see anymore are Movie figures.  Either that, or some waves show up and sell out without me ever seeing them.

I heard a rumor that the Shrinky Dinks are done.  Any thoughts?

The Wonder Man wave did show up around here, but not at big box retail.  I saw them in Walgreens.

Generally speaking, everything shows up around here.  Eventually.  Marvel Legends much faster than Multiverse.  The split movie/comic waves do tend to create a lot of peg warmers.  And that does include what could be the hottest superhero movie in years, Black Panther.  The movie figures appear to be sitting.  Then again, so do the unrelated comic figures.  However, the Wally exclusive Panthers both seem to be selling like the proverbial hotcakes. 

As for the shrinky dinks being done, it wouldn't surprise me too much.  They should also probably put the 1:6 Marvel Legends to bed too.  Use your resources on what actually sells.

Everything is showing up at once in a bukkake of Marvel Legends. Deadpool, Lizard wave, Avengers Thanos wave, Riders sets, and now Mr. Fantastic.



Looks like it's time to start hitting Walgreens again.

I'm telling ya....without the internet, I wouldn't know of at least half the figures that come out.  I don't even remember the last DC figure I saw at retail.  Come to think of it, I haven't seen any Shrinky Dinks at a store, either.

I'd argue life is, on the whole, better because of the technology.  Sure I miss the feeling of walking down an aisle and discovering something cool, but now I've eliminated fomo and can budget appropriately.

Without the internet, I think collecting might be dead by now.

I am extremely thankful for the internet.  As I had said earlier, I wouldn't know about many of the toys that exist without websites.  But also, I'd have no friends to chat with about toys, not to mention that some truly great people have helped me out with hard-to-find figures.

Even now I get text messages when people find things and then let me know stuff has hit the shelf. It's a different time for sure. I mean, how'd they collect toys in the 1800s without the benefit of modern technology?

I believe Gard would inform you that they just made their own.

Still no luck on the Hydra 2-pack. Why would Hasbro plan and release an army builder that is so difficult to find?
It's not in Australia and online prices are ridiculous thanks to scalpers.

I think I only saw it once.  Evaporated.
