In case anyone stopping by wasn't aware -- the ML exclusive for SDCC this year was going to be a classic Hellfire Clubs -- including FA White Queen. The set will be availble this Fall.

Oh, and FA Storm/Thunderbird is a Target exclusive this Fall.

I'll be getting the SDCC set if I can.  The Storm/Thunderbird set will be mine.  I've had to learn how to use Popfindr with the Target Joe debacle, so I should have a shot.  Hopefully Target ordered lots and lots.

Almost everyone wants White Queen, but are iffy on the other figures. I doubt, though, that White Queen will be released separately any time soon. Still waiting for classic Hela and Moonstone to be released!

I definitely want that Storm/Thunderbird set. I still have the old 5-inch boxed set that includes most of the new X-Men team. That's the only figure Thunderbird has had until now (not counting his brother).

 Storm/Thunderbird pre-orders are sold out. Have to wait until the set is released to try and order.  gah.gif

Target exclusives always sell out in seconds because of scalper bots.

I have one Target near where I work (of course, I'm working from home these days -- but hoping I'll be in the office a few days per week by October). I have seen some sets there, but they are never the ones that I want.

So who's holding out hope that Habsro Exclusives will be available on more than just Pulse later this week?
I really want that Hellfire Club set. There's rumours that Hasbro are working with a number of retailers to make SDCC items available. Fingers crossed.

Did you end up being able to get an order in? Seems like the set was available for a while.

Lots of good stuff shown yesterday. Classic versions of Kang, Dormammu, Thanos, Stilt Man and freaking Arcade.

I saw a couple of Black Tom figures at Wal-Mart today. I usually buy any character designed by Dave Cockrum, but am passing for now -- being that the Storm/Thunderbird set is dropping next week. I may pick up Tom at some later date.

Well, I botched that. I saw the set was available to ship to store or home address from Target.com. I was going to wait until today to order, but though better of it. Unfortunately, Target.com does not let you know the set is sold out until you choose the method of shipping -- and it's sold out for either method.

I don't know if it would have been at the nearby (about 35 miles away) Target, but I stopped there today after work -- and there were no set except for Deadpool and that atomic powers girl -- and another with Old Man Logan and someone (was not impressed by either -- and there were plenty of both).

Last night I saw it going on ebay for $100.00 and that's just a ridiculous amount to pay. I saw some more reasonable prices today -- lowest at $60, but not sure about that particular vendor. May go halfway and shell out $75. I mean -- that Storm is Storm. That's one of Dave Cockrum's top 10 designs, IMHO.

I got lucky and was able to get a Storm set the day before they were supposed to go out.

Got Kang yesterday. He’s a really great addition to the old villains shelf and a huge upgrade from the ToyBiz version. I love villains, so I’m pumped for that bad guys wave next year, especially if the whole wave is as good as Dormammu and Arcade. Hopefully a classic Ultron is in there too.

I was able to get Storm and Thunderbird the day of release at a back-up Target with someone willing to go back and get their last one at 10am.  Exclusives have gotten painful.

You may recall that I never open my figures. The closes I've ever come is opening the DCUC Legion of Super-Heroes package -- without removing any of the figures.

Well, I'm glad that my Storm/Thunderbird set has her in full wind mode. Love the windswept look on her. She's not as well-proportioned as Cockrum drew here, but the figures look so good together. I'll be placing this on my desk so I can admire the beauty. I know there are some problems with Thunderbird, but from my vantage point -- he's excellent.

I got the set off ebay, and wouldn't you know that it was available on Target again the very next day! I don't get these exclusive sets -- especially for such high in demand figures!
