I dig it. Shes missing a tooth, though.
For once someone switching BAF parts benefits me. I went Walgreens hunting yesterday for Mystique. One Walgreens has the toys in a case that requires help from an employee. The guy that helped me was a collector himself and pointed out that the Thanos head was missing from the Captain America Infinity War figure. Guy said he wanted to catch the customer swapping parts, but also said he'd tell the cashier to sell it to me for $5. woohoo
I believe there's 3 figs to a case with 2 Deadpool and 1 Prof X so better to be stuck with 1 extra Deadpool and 2. From a vendor standpoint, makes sense to pair them up.
It's not "just because." All these people saying they only want Professor X, where do you think the other 2/3 of the case goes?
^Yes, I would just like 1 to inspect hopefully soon.....
I think they don't realize that the seller still has to do either a) unload those at a lower price eventually, thus having to charge more for a single Prof X so they can actually make money on it (because, sellers aren't in this to be altruistic) or b) bundle them the way many already do and sell them as a set to make sure those Deadpool's move. I'm guessing those complaining have never actually had to deal with selling case stock purchased wholesale from the distributor.
That's why I put it out there. I'll bet distributors are charging $100 for a case. On eBay, you need to average $50 shipped just to break even. Honestly, I think people should be grateful they're offered on eBay at all, at least until Walmart clearances them to a fair wholesale price later in the year.
By the way, I don't know if you all saw this or not, but eBay is making Good-Till-Cancelled mandatory on all fixed price listings soon. Something to keep in mind if you regularly recycle one-offs from your collection.
Psylocke was pretty iffy on paint apps too. Maybe something has changed?
Nothing has changed. Paint has been iffy on MLs since before they were MLs in the TB days.
Anyone else just have their Professor X preorder from Amazon cancelled?
Yeah, that is total B.S. not sure what I'm gonna do now?
They had the nerve to send me a link to a third party seller selling it at $70.
I just ordered at BBTS. Factoring in tax at amazon, putting this in my BBTS PoL only adds about a dollar. It's stupid on amazon's part, b/c you know they're going to have a ton of them to sell. It'll probably be $23 on Prime Day.
Well Amazon just canceled my preorder for Prof X and took the $10 credit I had with it.
Seriously, what the fuck is going on with them?
Will Xavier be sold in stores? Target or Gamestop?
One thing you could do is wait for it to go on clearance and buy it for less.
NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Maybe find some metallic green paint to touch that up...maybe.
Mystique showed up here And on sale too!
At this point, Amazon might as well cancel my preorders for the Magneto 3 pack and the Caliban wave. I'll get them somewhere else.
What I want to know is WTF Diamond can't show a picture of their CM due in May. Is that solicited date another lie or are they just incompetent?
