    I was at TRU today looking for Cars stuff and decided to wander by the action figures. Spotted the new Dreadnok and Clear Cobra Commander 3 packs but also found the Clear Super Skrull. I'm not sure if he's worth anything but I picked him up anyway. Can anyone fill me in?

    Yeah, my brother and I typically can find almost any Marvel figure available here, but we've never managed to find him or the Doombot.

    All three Skrulls, regular, fire and clear, are one per case. I have never seen one in-store in person. I'd wager any collector who happens upon the regular, the other two are likely still there and often enough, that person goes ahead and buys all three. Me, I really just want the regular one, and miiight leave the other two behind. Depends on if I was buying anything else.
    I ended up getting the regular one for cost + shipping on another board.

    The regular Super Skrull is the rarest and hardest to find, the variants (fire and clear) are far easier to find, but still hard to find.

    It looks like TRU's all over have gotten restock the past couple of weeks and of course the Skrulls get snatched up.

    I have found all three at retail at different times.

    I had found a regular one once at the TRU in Time Square, didn't think much of it because I didn't collect FF toys, seconds later a guy snatched it up and told the store employee "Yeah, this one is a rare one"...

    I'm not sure how rare they are but from the info I've read the case ratio is 2 Skrulls per normal case and the variant case just replaces those normal ones with one each of the variants.

    I found both variants at a meijer a couple weeks ago, they actually sat there for a few days before that too.

    I hate you all!! I can never find chase figures I want. And it's even worse when I like to collect "clear" figures and they ed up as chases! I still need Ionic Wonderman and the Clear Super Skrull. Wanna trade it for a chase Cyclops? (probably not since no one wants that piece of crap.)

    I saw a fire and clear variant in Edinburgh TRU way back in April.
    Didn't think they were that much of an exclusive.

    I just want the regular one :(

    They had loads of Super Skrull at my local TRU, snagged one for myself when they came out. None there now though...

    It was my understanding that all 3 versions of the Super Skrull were as rare as each other, and because of that the Normal one was the most sought after.

    I think SS is in the same position as the Invisible Girl from early on in the movie Fantastic Four line, each case had only one Sue Storm, and all three versions were equally packed. In the end the most sought after one ended up being the solid figure, with no phasing.

    Damn, are you guys serious? I work at TRU, and saw all 3 of these the day they came in, and was wondering if either variant was rare. Went on ebay to see if they were anything special, and the prices they were going for was normal, so I didn't grab them. If anyone here wants one, I can see if we still have or get any more in.
