    I got a Target notification and thought it was Red Hulk. Nope, it was NECA Bebop and Rocksteady, who were also sold out. I'm starting to think the alert system is pointless.

    Yeah, it honestly feels like by the time they get an alert to you the guys who watch the site like a hawk have already bought everything available. The best way to combat that, of course, would be to not make the figure available until they have a decent amount they can put up on the site. It can't be that many going up at once if it's literally selling out within seconds of me getting a notification. I have literally gotten the notification, clicked it immediately and it'll be unavailable. I'm not worried that I'll never get this... Target exclusives tend to be plentiful in the long run... but man is it crazy how this one is being handled right now.

    Edit: Here's a question since I don't buy from Hasbro Pulse that often... but how long does it take them to ship an order that's in stock typically? I ordered something on Sunday and it still says paid, but unfulfilled. I realize that Monday would have been the first day they started working on it but we're at the three-day point now and the items were in stock (one has gone to out of stock now, but that shouldn't affect my order unless they oversold). It just seems like I should have gotten a shipping notice today.

    I see some head swaping in the near future; and quite possibly picking up another retro black suit one so I can have one with each look.

    My guess is the back in stock alerts are based on random returns or cancellations. Something that isn't actually new, complete shipments.

    I remember ordering that SM/Kraven pack and them not doing shit with it for four days. I am a redcard holder, I expect my good shipping.

    People have reviews up for Walmart Black Widow. She looks good. Probably the best Widow figure to date.

    Not that we'll need another one for like, ever-ish. End-all, be-all Widow for me.

    I definitely want to get that figure, but it would be an understatement to say my luck with Walmart exclusives is poor. I’m really worried about movie Cable...

    Trying some new photo editing apps, so a simple image tonight:

    I preordered Cosmic Ghost Rider through a Comic Bookshop (same one I found Doom at), and he should arrive soon!

    Shop notified me my pre-order of MCU Thanos 3-pack and Tony Stark 2-pack is ready for pick up this weekend.
    Another shop notified me my Transformers Earthrise Voyagers and Deluxes is ready this weekend too.

    F*ck.. I didn't expected two Pre-Orders will drop at the same day.
    Need to avoid this next time.

    Wallet's gonna hard time breathing :( 

    Good thing my extra job saved me from the expenses.
    But that doesn't mean it's alright to me.

    It's finally high time to unload & sell some no longer needed TFs and MLs.

    I wish she had alternate arms so you could have her without the jacket. That's the only flaw I see, but I'll pick her up if I ever come across her.

    Sugar Man & Abomination Wave will arrive at our shores between end of March to early April.
    So expect it to arrive at US a week or a month after as long B&M stores there follow Hasbro's street date.

    Seems like peeps are going for Gray Widow.
    What happened? Hate the White Origin costume?

    Gray suit Widow is an iconic costume, and was around for at least a good 10 years during the 80s and 90s, though the jacket only came later during her 90s stint on the Avengers. As for your logic, just because people prefer one costume, doesn't mean they hate the other - in this case I don't think it's a matter of people hating the white suit, it's just that a lot of collectors who prefer comic designs want that costume. Personally I like that gray suit, but I'd prefer it without the jacket as it gives more flexibility in the displays (with DD vs the Hand during Miller's run, or posing with Cap and Wolvie in the iconic UXM 268 Jim Lee cover). With the jacket, she's really stuck during that 90s Avengers era.

    Whelp. For once I saw Red Hulk with an actual ability to buy it, but the app crashed, the buy button on the desktop version didn't work and when it did, it said it didn't ship to my zip code.

    This one’s face is still off a bit for me but decent enough, mostly because i’ll always think of Perez’s Beast when I think of that late 70s era of Avengers.

    I have no luck at Walmart either. They don't really stock the shelves at mine. Everything is usually gone. It looks like Gary Indiana.

    If you have the old TRU exclusive 2 pack version (the one that came with Winter Soldier) you may be able to swap the arms.
