    Not yet, as far as I know. In fact, all we've really seen of its existence is that single photo in the resources gallery. And the brown Wolverine repaint was just sighted for the first time a week or two ago, so they likely won't share shelf space.

    I feel your pain, I'm looking forward to it as well. I intend to turn it into an easy Classics Trailbreaker (as I'm sure many are). So I'm hoping the thing is a) real, b) mass-market and easily obtainable, and c) due in stores sooner rather than later.

    heck my store never got the captain america/thor/war machine wave.......and i wanted that captain america........they got the second wave and stopped carrying them......so now all they got is a dusty human torch (had a dusty grey hulk for a small time but by the time i was going to grab it it was gone)

    Yeah our store had cap and thor for like 5 min, never got 'em back. Personally I was looking forward to nabbing carnage, but that never came to be. Seems the hardest one to find is Venom, I have NEVER seen that one around.

    p.s. oops, I missed the brown quote in the previous post.

    Yeah, I've seen Cap only a handful of times. Never seen Carnage.

    Some of these are great molds. I got grey hulk and torch. I just wish they weren't, well, marvel characters ;) 

    I wanna give my hulk a new head and call him Tankor

    Marvel is what filled the drought left by the 'death' of transformers for me. So I was thrilled they put the two together.

    My Brother in law scored a Venom one, but his dog munched it so it is no more. Ive been able to get one actually (the only one I ever saw) along with Wolvie, and Black Spider-man. Seen all of them (save for Carnage) at some point, Cap and Thor seem to be the latest ones to show up around here as I haven't seen any newer ones since... :(

    Heh heh, me too.... it's left over from an unfinished "Nemesis Prime to Trailbreaker" kitbash that, given my profound laziness, is likely destined to REMAIN unfinished. Hopefully I'll be a bit more successful in completing a Wolverine bash. :p 

    Seriously, though, that mold with the BT Swindle head is pretty much the perfect Trailbreaker.

    My one concern is how hard the silver paint will be to remove. I had started a Trailbreaker bash on the first release blue Wolverine, with the intention of dying it black. But I kinda gave up because I could NOT get that yellow paint off. I let the pieces soak in 99% isopropyl rubbing alcohol for a full day, and it barely budged the paint. Hopefully the silver will be easier to remove. If not, well, I guess my Classics Trailbreaker will have a fancy new silver paint scheme.
