    I just found a ton of the Marvel Monsters ML set at my local Wal-mart, but I was unable to find any traces of the Young Avengers set or any of the Giant Man series. Does anyone know if these are all supposed to ship together or will they come in separately? I just need to know if I need to watch the shelves like a hawk for the next week or so or if I'm panicking for nothing (I'm worried I may never get the ML figs. I'm going for since I had the damndest time tracking down some of the figs. in the Legendary Riders wave and I never did see a Hulkbuster Iron Man...). Thanks, all! :D

    I know some stores have gotten a pallet full of ML stuff but the onesaround here have yet to get them. We've just gotten individual cases of the Giant wave and the face off two packs.

    One of the stores near me (in Orange County, CA) had only the Young Avengers set and none of the other new ones.

    My walmart hasn't gotten anything ML related aside from some stray apocalypse series this month. :(

    I've yet to see ANY of the faceoff two-packs around here at all. Not at Wal-Mart, not at Target, and probably not at TRU either. Beginning to wonder if they even exist...

    We received the whole pallet, but have since sold out of the Ant Man single figures.

    That would be preferable to this lame Monsters pack. Trade you counties?

    Some are getting a full aisle display pallet with everything in it (Giant Man, Face-off, Masterworks, boxsets) and others are getting endcaps of the Giant Man series and others separately. I found both boxsets, one each of the normal Face-Off sets and a TON of Masterworks at one Wal-Mart near here last night, but no sign of Giant Man. Then the other day I found every single Giant Man wave figure at another one that had none of the others.

    So it's a crap shoot at the moment, and even if they appear apparently they only last a few hours. But the good news is that most places will be recieving replinishment cases, the bad news is some already have and sold all of those and aren't getting any.

    I hope I can find the Wal-Mart stuff. The store here in Savannah didn't have them (last I checked about a week ago), and haven't heard from my dad about the store back home. But that Wal-Mart failed to carry most of the exclusive Transformers since Armada, so I'm not holding out much hope.

    Hell, I'm still waiting to see widespread distribution of the Sentinel Series... :banghead:

    Haven't seen any. If I still can't find any, I will probably give up on MLs.

    All I can say is give your best hunting effort for these things. If you have friends that hunt too, network. Most places are supposedly selling out within hours. I was checking 2 Wal-Marts on almost a daily basis both of which still have NOTHING. Then a friend informed me of another one that had Giant Man and I went to yet another on a whim and found the other stuff.

    If all else fails the best online price for cases I've found is at figurineforall.com and they have them at $124.95. With that you get every figure including the variants.

    I've been to 5 wal-marts in the last month. I've found everything but Giant Man wave figures. (Didn't get anything but the Monsters)

    2 of them had nothing, 2 of them had the Masterworks and the Monsters, and 1 had both sets, and the 2 packs.
