    Reason BAFs are getting smaller? check oil prices hehehe, to expensive to do the tailler BAF's with just 6 figures now*why you think Giant-Man was used in the 10 fig WM wave?*

    Because it was an exclusive wave, which usually doesn't sale as much/well as a regular wave so they included a piece with every character as an incentive to get the whole line? Just a thought.

    Well that is part of it i guess but it's also oil prices going up and stuff also hehe.

    Speaking of the WM wave how are ya'll peeps doing with finding it/getting them?

    I've only seen it once and got AoA Wolvy and Face off Cap vs Skull.

    Here are some MLs I would like to see.

    Odin
    Hercules
    Quicksilver
    Lilandra in shiar armor
    Hela
    Beta Ray Bill (I think I've seen pics of a ML version somewhere)
    Polaris
    Banshee
    Gladiator
    Contemporary Jean Grey
    Surtur as a BAF figure but I doubt this will happen since he's a fire demon and the toybiz is a bit too politically correct nowadays. We can forget about Mephisto too.

    Oh, I got mine a month back or so :D 

    The only one I never bought was the bearded banana. Didn't need a lame variant of an already lame character/figure.

    **Note to self. Need to take pictures of Giant Man post-aquiring Variant Weapon X**

    The Goliath and Red Skull had come in the mail from my friend the same day as I got the Walmart wave ;)  He'd been holding on to them for awhile, kept forgetting to send them out to me lol. So I had a nice surprise.

    Oh, and adding these today helped muchly too:

    God, I really hope the Wal-Mart back home has the exclusives when I get home next week. I really don't want to miss out on these. Especially when my a number of characters I like and the beginnings of an Avengers collection are all there.

    And for some strange reason, I'm still mildly interested in the Young Avengers set, despite having never read the comic.


    Since we seem to be doing wishlists now...

    -I demand the rest of PAD's X-Factor: Polaris, Multiple Man, Wolfsbane, Strong Guy, and Quicksilver. Plus a new Havok. And somehow, we should get Val Cooper.
    -Doc Samson (to re-enact X-Factor #87)
    -Blink
    -Rictor
    -Siryn
    -Might as well throw in M and get the new X-Factor (minus Layla Miller)
    -Exiles Mimic (metal skin variant)
    -Morph (AoA or Exiles)
    -Beta Ray Wade
    -X-Factor Cyclops and Marvel Girl (final blue and yellow costumes)
    -I'd totally buy Black Bolt if they somehow gave him mouth articulation :D 

    -Face Off: AoA Magneto VS Apocalypse
    -Face Off: Cable (with a GOOD headsculpt) VS Stryfe

    Was strolling through Target and they just put a fresh case of the Apocolypse series out. I know big deal but..
    scored the Sasquatch, Iron Fist & Wolverine variants finally for retail.

    Also decided to see how that Xmen Wolverine & bike set was. (at TRU for 14.99)
    The figs pretty solid, the bike's nice and heavy, but alot of the chrome parts (handlebars mainly) are really cheap plastic. Like knockoff bend & snap cheap.

    Wonder how Cyclop's bike is?

    Ooh, I like that idea.

    Thanks to friendly people online, I've got 2 Bearded Sentry figues, one bright, one unbright.

    I also picked up the Monsters set, love the Zombie.

    And yesterday, I picked up a X-men Electromagnetic Magneto figure. I'm really quite impressed, a great figure, IMHO.

    If it's this guy
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v148/loebig/Marvel/XmenMagneto.jpg
    then cool, he turned out to be alot better than I thought. The helmet's a little thin but good enough and like how there's 2 holes in his back for positioning his cape.

    Dang! That Magneto looks very good! Unfortunately the major retailers in my country don't bring them in and the local import stores sells them for around US$18-20 - which is abit pricy in my book...

    finally finished my WM Giant man wave today. Walked in and just rounded the corner. Saw a guy with a huge stack of the Legends on the floor. NOOOOO!!!! I thought. I asked if he had an extra War Bird.. He said there was one left on the peg. Well i got her and she is now mine! Just put together Giant man. Nice figure..

    I've been watching the X-Men 90s cartoon recently. I'm up to part 5 of the pheonix saga. I'd like to see MLs of the Shi-Ar guards (Gladiator, Erik The Red, etc) and Starjammers (Chod, Scott's dad, cat lady, Raza, etc.). We also need Spiral since Mojo is getting made.

    Heh, I haven't even STARTED my Apocalypse yet. I really want him, but I feel mostly lukewarm towards some of the characters. There are some I'm interested in, but I just can't bring myself to buy them. Then of course, there's the whole blue and black Apoc parts. I don't want to buy a few blue parts here in Savannah, only to find out that the black Apocalypse is in stores back home.

    Or maybe I'm just jaded because of the Sentinel Series clusterfuck. All I have is Angel (red version :bandhead: ) because I NEVER saw them at Target or Wal-Mart. TRU had a few once or twice. And of course, KB had all of them (minus variants) at one point, but I wasn't willing to pay their price at the time.

    Don't hate me because i'm beautiful...

    Hey i just finished mine today. I nearly had to pay $25 for just one damn figure because they are hard to find. No way is it worth that much.
