    I've been wondering that, myself. Omega Red, maybe? Looks FANTASTIC.

    Has anyone ever bought "used, like new" Marvel Legends from Amazon?

    I've lost faith in Amazon Warehouse Deals in general, but it depends on the figure I guess. If it's dirt cheap and you don't care that it could have blemishes, I'd give it a try.

    I've bought ML Deathlok, retro Punisher, Death's Head II, and a few others Amazon Warehouse deals in the past and they were just a smashed boxes and the figures were fine.

    If there's obvious known issue like Earthrise Grapple pegs breaking, I wouldn't buy Grapple from Amazon Warehouse because 9 out of 10 times you will get a Grapple with broken pegs.

    I did buy a 'like new' Soul of Chogokin God Mars Amazon Warehouse deal early February and I got a KO Devastator and other bits of junk instead:
    The Soul of Chogokin, Soul SPEC, SIC, & Super Robot Chogokin Choking on Gokin Thread

    :confused:

    I'm looking at getting the Vibranium MCU Panther from the M'Baku wave (and eventually, all the other MCU BP figures) but I can get it for $14.11 (itself down 40 cents from when I asked that question) for "the item in it's original packaging, packaging will be damaged." It's from Amazon's warehouses itself, which makes me think maybe it's not used at all. Maybe somebody knocked over a part with a fork truck and they had to make the stock down.

    That's usually what it is. Its a blowback from their terrible shippers, to misb folks. When i got my CW Panther, they folded the top peg part down, to fit it in a box.

    Been working on some new thwips. Left thwip is white thread-wrapped floral wire coated with Shoe Goo. Right thwip is white thread-wrapped floral wire painted with pearl metallic white craft acrylic then coated in Shoe Goo. They look nice and gooey now...

    Edit: It doesn’t show up in the pics well...but the pearlescent paint on the right one really does give it some extra pop and shimmer. If you are into making your own thwips, I recommend giving it a shot. The supplies are cheap and readily available...even more so than toilet paper!!

    Yeah, I ordered a Walgreens Mystique from Amazon warehouse deals. Everything looked proper but when I opened it her head popped off. I thought no big deal but then I noticed the peg was broken. I thought I did it while taking her out but I looked and the peg was stuck in the extra Rogue head.

    Someone broke it, sent it back and the Amazon people sent it back out because it looked ok. I got a replacement though, no big deal.

    Okay, so if I'm going to grab one other figure with BP, should I go for Klaue or T'Chaka? I need both eventually.

    No, I don't believe so. I think it's vintage wave so that usually means everywhere.

    Walmart has klaue for under $12...

    And it’s worth checking places like GameStop when they’re doing a % off deal (20-25% has been the more recent norm for action figures). The BP line has the clearance $##.97 price and sometimes those items get an additional 30% or 50% off (their 50:50 stores used to occasionally do even deeper discounts on clearance, I think it was 75% off at times).

    I recently drove to a few stores (Walgreens, Target, Walmart) for the first time in a while and saw a few ‘surprises.’

    Didn’t expect target to have both the ghost rider & squirrel girl sets, but left them (since it was one of the items that was actually shipped to me from megalopolis during their sale... smh)

    Not sure if I missed out on a Walgreens sale that occurred over the last week or so (the ripped yellow sale stickers made me wonder); and from a distance I thought this store restocked some more old magik figures with someone ripping out the accessories but it wasn’t.

    Decided to pick up one of the three Emma Frost figures the store had, since I got an on clearance (plus a 25% discount) translucent/diamond statue of her from GameStop mailed to me last week.

    It’ll be interesting to see how much $ I’ve spent in the socially distant shopping vs the social distance shopping over the next few months.

    Hang in there everyone.

    That price is matched to Amazon's.

    These Walmart/Target/Whoeverthefuck exclusives are starting to really become a pain. I can't even keep track. You need an Excel Spreadsheet just to collect toys.

    Just sell them all everywhere guys. Come on.
