    On a tip from Nightwing24 of our IL sightings thread, I ventured out to the local Costco in Mt. Prospect, IL.

    Dumb question. Isn't he supposed to be the MP equivalent of 'bee?

    Wow, great price! Looks like item number 520301 from the blurry image?

    Also, FYI prices at Costco can vary somewhat from store to store.

    Whoa, 41.99?! Here I thought I was going to have to decide between more expensive gold or cheaper yellow (since BJs, WM and TRU all rolled back the yellow price). Now I can get gold and for less! Glad I have someone at work with a Costco membership.

    Funny, the back of the box still pictures yellow bee with the blue fist.

    Wow, for some reason that picture definitely makes it look Masterpiece-esque, and it's not just the box.

    He's being called a Masterpiece figure in Japan, with this Costco version looking very similar to that paint job there.

    I'm headed to Costco tomorrow. For all those who don't have a Costco near them or all you international members, I'll gladly pick one up for you. For those with a Costco nearby, you can get a Costco Gift card and make a purchase without a membership.

    I only want the pack in legends figures, anyone interested in the Big Bee, or if you want the Bee and not the legends hit me with a PM and we can work a nice bit of business.

    UPDATE:
    Got someone to go in on this, but if I find a bunch at the Costco near me I will be sure to pick a couple up to help people out, so if you are interested, lmk, i'm gonna make the trip out tomorrow!

    DO WANT!

    Now, I just gotta sneak my way into a Costco. Don't you have to be a member or something to buy crap there?
