    I did but I couldn't wait and the 30 dollar Mickey came up and I just pulled the trigger. It's one of those "It's not you, it's me" situations. Waiting was making me lose my mind so I just got him all by my lonesome.

    found that leaving weapons in minifigure hands stresses the plastic

    great

    I received the Amazon Kids Holiday Toy catalog in the mail and this was the Mega Page:

    Gee, sure would be nice to buy that Amazon exclusive Halo set.

    Maybe this means they plan on having sufficient stock at some point?

    Oh yeah, COD and Destiny hands pop. Remove weapons accordingly.

    Haw Haw. Amazon is just gonna keep this set for scalpers.

    It's still available on TRU.com Canada. I'm getting a set through a shipping middle man.

    Ordered myself a Castle Grayskull :rock 

    From what I understand it happens mostly to figures that use that bar for their weapon. So characters like Skeletor, Mer-man, Scareglow etc seem to get it the worst. From what I can tell the actual molded swords seem fine. Haven’t heard of many people having straight up breaks.

    The shiny hands are the ones that don't stress the dull hands do.

    I had a couple coupons for Meijer so I grabbed these 2 yesterday. Coupons brought each one down to just $2, and with some bottle return money covering that I ended up walking out with 30cents more than I walked in with.

    I really like the look of them, MC did a good job on the deco.

    I haven’t seen that wave of heroes anyway. I think my area just never got it.

    I've only seen once, and they were just 1 or 2 left (Target). Probably best just to order the 5 pack while you can through Amazon or Walmart. Granted, Target will probably end up flooded with them after x-mas when they should be carrying Series 15, just like Series 12, but then again Series 13 barely came and went. Can't f'ing trust this sht.

    You know, I've never actually seen that show. I'm basically the exact right age for it, but it must have been on against something else I wanted to watch more. I have zero knowledge or attachment to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
