    Yeah I definitely would've liked an updated face on Hobgoblin so it'd match the cartoon like the rest of him.

    I usually go with BBTS for retro-carded releases because I value the condition of the card-back so it's worth the extra $2. But Pulse does a pretty good job, too and since I was buying the full wave, I just decided to go with them for all six.
    If for some reason one or two of the cards are messed up, I can always open them and then circle back to BBTS for guaranteed pristine conditions later.

    He could have used an updated headsculpt and a non-tattered cape. Still getting him though since I don't have the first release Hasbro did.

    Yeah, that would make total sense. It's a shame too because I actually like the hands and gloves they gave this version.

    Got my preorder in for 3 Skrulls and the Excalibur set. It does kind of suck that I couldn't get it all on the same order as the Spidey stuff, but whatever.

    Are any of the heads in the SHIELD pack based on actual members? The one kind of looks like Jimmy Woo, but I'm not sure about the other two.

    I was looking at my old ToyBiz 90s X-Men Cameron Hodge Phallanx figure and yeah, I want him in Marvel Legends. Pretty much the same exact design/colour scheme just with updated articulation and maybe an X-Factor era alternate "solo" head from his "immortal" self.

    Got what I could from Amazon and then hit up pulse for the skrulls and shield agents. Spent enough to get free shipping which is good. Trying to avoid the premium membership since I don’t think I use them enough to merit it.

    I was able to order six shield agent two packs, between two non-premium membership accounts.

    Got everyone except Hobgoblin from Amazon to open and then got a case from EE to keep carded. The new Hobby just isn't different enough for me to need one open, I'm good with the current one. Also grabbed Excalibur from Pulse, almost an hour after they were made available to non-Pulse people, and they're still up. I really only want Shadowcat, so I'll probably sell Brian and Meggan when I get it in.

    Anyone know why BBTS charges more per figure? Both DS and EE have them for retail.

    Probably because that's their margin, on top of always being reliable for their POs as well.

    I missed out on that too and just have the Toy Biz one(which aged well surprisingly, I think the 4H did most of the sculpt if not all of it). I only saw the Hasbro one at Kmart I think in 2018 for $24.99 but fuck that noise lol. Good thing I passed now that this new one has been revealed and looks different.

    Man, Symbiote Spider-man didn’t even make the top 100 best sellers on Amazon and he’s sold out? How few of these do they make? Lame.

    I would've liked some Skrulls but not too bummed about missing them.

    The Skrulls probably didn’t sell out, they probably just disguised themselves as other figures.

    Was able to PO Shocker on Amazon and all the Spideys over on BBTS when they first went up. The power went out in my house so I had to drive to a parking lot for good reception, and it payed off.

    F*ck. I was on Pulse when Symbiote Spidey was up, but I didn't pull the trigger. Hopefully this is just FOMO and I'll actually get him somewhere.
