    Congrats!

    Yeah after a few days off the forum I'm surprised how many pages in this thread I have to read to get caught up. None of my other frequent threads get posted as frequently =)

    For those interested, Hasbro’s Overwatch Ultimates 6” figures are starting to hit Targets around the Bay Area. Yesterday Richmond Target had two each of the single figures (grabbed one Sombra) and Pleasant Hill today had one each of everyone but Tracer.

    Went to Natomas Walmart at lunch and they had those Overwatch figures and also some of the Avengers Marvel Legends figures. Only thing noteworthy on the Transformers side were reissue Tailgate and Swerve

    I only have Tracer so far, I wanted Sombra too thats why I was really wanting that Target DPCI so bad!

    And all I can say is... I find Tracer enjoyable than most of my Marvel Legends figs but i notice the female figs still dont have double joint elbows. But Tracer very fun to pose.

    I’ve only seen singles and two-packs so far (no Reinhardt):

    Single: 087-16-3679
    2-Pack: 087-16-3491

    These do have pegholes in their feet.

    I’m pretty impressed by their quality so far. Articulation wise, most are at least on par with Marvel Legends, and I’d argue that most have better torso articulation (ab hinge AND ball-socket) than Legends. Sculpt and paint quality is pretty impressive for most of these, which could be a sign of Blizzard sharing 3D models and coloration schemes with them. After owning Figma Tracer, I may prefer the Hasbro version’s face likeness just due to the sharper, darker details. Pictures and videos online don’t do these things justice, honestly.

    I have been reading about scattered QC problems here and there. My Mercy was missing the flame effect for her staff and I read one person had a misassembled elbow on his Reinhardt. I also saw one Reyes with a terribly smeared goatee. Just make sure you look for all accessories and good paint apps and you should be good.

    Picked up a Trypticon this morning at Ross in Pleasant Hill. It didn't have a price sticker so the cashier sold it to me for $12.99! Nothing at Ross Vallejo. Target Vallejo has 1 Ironhide for anyone still looking.

    Wave 2 deluxes are showing up in Orange County Targets. Managed to call in, ask staff to check DPCI 087-16-3985, and got them to hold Ironhide, Sixgun, and Prowl (I already picked up Chromia from Amazon). I picked up some Wave 1 deluxes for like $11 each during the sale recently, so I'll be returning them on the wave 2 receipts.

    No new Transformers in my area, but Gamestop had Overwatch Reinhardt and Best Buy had the X-Men Marvel Legends wave.

    Why is it always something trying to find these figures? all the targets near me say Leder siege prime is dated for 7/28! Yet they have been found in San Jose. smh
