That whole flat-rate shipping thing makes the math easy.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 02:23 PM)

4 bucks

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:15 PM)

Hmm. How much is shipping from BBTS?

@  NightViper : (20 September 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Set of the four is still $22 at BBTS

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 September 2017 - 02:00 PM)

Ramhorn is currently available from a third party seller via Amazon for $27.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 11:47 AM)

Anybody have the TR PM OP trading card they don't want? I lost mine! Will pay you for it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 September 2017 - 11:35 AM)

If you don't need her I'll take her off ya.

When I get that power-batteryOptimus I swear I will carry it everywhere. It'll be like having a useful tool AND being six years old again all at once.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:58 AM)

I guess he's gone now. Oh well.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I saw Ramhorn all over ebay for $16 a week ago or so.

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 09:02 AM)

Just ordered Arcee.  I don't need her.  But she's pink.  And a robot.  A combination I love.

@  Darknova4life : (20 September 2017 - 08:57 AM)

@ Robowang, Where is TR Ramhorn available for $16?

@  Shrug : (20 September 2017 - 07:31 AM)

Besides spotty, this is the first time I've consistently seen reships of older waves months after the next 2/3 waves show up.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2017 - 07:29 AM)

No kidding spotty. Haven't seen of the recent waves, and I desperately want a seaspray for my brother.

@  Robowang : (20 September 2017 - 07:05 AM)

Distribution is so spotty these days that I've given in and just started ordering everything. I'm probably going to wind up with a $16 Ramhorn, too.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:51 PM)

So they've been out at regular retail hit and miss for awhile.

@  MidnightFox : (19 September 2017 - 08:50 PM)

I picked up Misfire at a Target in Mississippi in mid-August.

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 05:09 PM)

I think so. I checked his post history just now and he mentions buying something in North Carolina

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 05:04 PM)

A U.S. Walmart?

@  Shrug : (19 September 2017 - 04:41 PM)

Saw someone found Misfire's wave at Walmart on Reddit. First normal retail sighting I've heard. I'm more hopeful now.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

I'm praying I will be able to find Misfire and Slugslinger at brick and mortar somehow.

@  Xellos : (19 September 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Getting the set of 3, myself. Figure I'll keep Hot Rod in package (still my fave character), and give Kup to my nephew to help expand his current fascination with Transformers.

@  Telly : (19 September 2017 - 11:56 AM)

i got slugslinger for $30 from amazon as well. i can imagine thatll be the standard price at most places since theyll jack up the price to cover having all those kup and hot rods sitting in their stores

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yes, I bought the $30 one on Amazon. I'd rather just pay the $30 than pay $60 and be stuck with an extra Hot Rod and Kup I can't sell.

@  Robowang : (19 September 2017 - 07:34 AM)

Slugslinger, Misfire, and Triggerhappy look amazing together. Best of Titans Return, as far as I'm concerned.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 September 2017 - 11:32 PM)

@  Shrug : (13 September 2017 - 09:00 PM)

My local store got a fresh deluxe box of TR Wave 1 and two boxes of deluxe TLK Wave 1. Even though they already had 3 boxes worth of TLK Wave 1

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 September 2017 - 07:08 PM)

Almost all the Titans Return is sold out at my nearest Target and Walmart, but I'm traveling this weekend and may try different ones.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 September 2017 - 06:12 PM)

I don't have -any- TR at my walmart.

This is marvel dude. Spidey is explicitly a loner and wolverine is a key member of the other premiere marvel super hero team. I just blame bendis.

They're doing versions of Secret Invasion and Civil War in this show, aren't they? Perhaps they'll have a BuckyCap period.

Spider-man? A loner? Since when? Solo hero? Yes. Loner? The guy that has a long series of teaming up with EVERYONE? Even wanting to join the Fantastic Four shortly after he started? This is the team that has HULK. Now THERE is a loner. The guy that tries to smash most people because no one leaves him alone. Or does he not count because he's a founding member?

Didn't stop Beast from being an Avenger. Many Avengers have been on other teams before, or do they not count because that was pre-bendis?

Spidey and Sniktbub may be the most well KNOWN Marvel characters, but Cap and Iron Man are just as much like Superman and Batman to me than Spidey and Wolvie are.

Yeah, they are the Flagship characters of Marvel, the ones everyone know of before even getting movies. Much like Superman and Batman. So again, why shouldn't they be a part of the big superhero team? Don't tell me Spider-man is a loner when he's not; and even if you hold to that I'll point to you bigger loners that have been on the team. Don't tell me Wolverine can't be on the team because he's on another, and I';ll again show you people that have been mutli-teamed.

I never said I had anything against Wolvie and Spidey being a part of the Avengers, man. I'm all for it, but I wish Wolvie bough some of his X-Men teammates, namely Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Beast, Storm, Rogue, Shadowcat, Colossus, Jean Gray, Archangel, Gambit and Iceman with him icon-waspy.gif

I can say without a doubt that you really don't understand Spider-Man at all.
He tried to join the FF at the VERY beginning of his career. Before he started experiencing the hell that is being Spider-Man. He'll work with other heroes no problem but to be a part of a permanent team? No way. Do you know how many times he turned down membership in the Avengers?

Spidey keeps his mask on. He tries to keep his identity a secret. He keeps to himself as that's part of his pathos. When they did the New Avengers it annoyed me beyond reason to see Spidey and Wolvie there. And what did they do with them? Oh, make jokes about Wolverine being on a million teams and put Spidey in the background as strictly comic relief and just hanging around as if he doesn't have a hectic and stressful social life to keep up on which is one of the rather enormous reasons he isn't on a damn team.

No sir. He shouldn't be on a team just because he's well known. Not when it goes entirely against the grain of the character.

I can almost certainly say they are NOT putting every one of those characters onto the Avengers. They're probably just doing a bigass crossover episode where the Avengers muster up every hero they can find. Given how long the this season has been in production for, and given the presence of HIGHLIGHT to view:
Vision and Winter Soldier this probably takes place mid or even late season.

Hell, the Fantastic Four already cameo'd on the show like three times now. As did Wolverine during the WW2 episode. This isn't too uncommon.

QUOTE

I believe the point Database was making is that, in the show, the Hulk is a fairly stable member of the team now, and yet he has an extreme loner personality.

Yeah, Hulk is probably the biggest Loner hero in the Marvel Universe, yet here he is; a Staple of these Avengers. And its not just here, just about every Avengers re-imaging has the Hulk as a member in some compasitity. So even if 616 Hulk never rejoined (though was still a major player in the early issues with the Avengers trying to make sure he didn't hurt anyone, making him a key to the group staying together in their first few months. Hell, Its was through his teaming with Namor that lead Namor to finding Captain America in the next issue.) his other universe selves have played bigger roles in their respective teams.

I still don't see how if HULK can be a member, Hulk having just as good if not better reasons to be a loner, can be an Avenger; why Spidey can't. characterization doesn't remain static. Eventually he could start to see a team helping him could be a good thing, as he's not the only hero that has to put up with BS in both sides of his life. To act like his reasons are much better then others is foolish and I feel being ignorant due to favoritism.

Because one thing about the Hulk is change. He never stays the same. Depending on which HUlk you get you might have a great team member or your worst enemy. He's a malleable character which is one of the reason I don't care much for him.
Spidey isn't that malleable. once you start changing him you start making people like him less and less.

You really, REALLY don't get Peter Parker. You don't get why his stories were written the way they were.
Different character focus on different aspects in their stories, this is universal for ALL stories. That which makes Peter Parker special is the way he handles his personal life with the balance of being a reluctant hero. Putting him on a team craps all over what makes him special and the only thing you have left is the comic relief.

It's not surprising that Spidey was only put on the official Avengers roster when it became Earth's Most Popular Heroes.
