1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

It's an appealing scale, and it's easy to be far more forgiving of limited articulation and paint. The sculpting is also light years ahead of the horrid Human Alliance humans. MASK and Dino Riders hit more detailed and accurate proportions.

I wonder how big Hulkbuster IM is? He's the main draw for me at this early stage, but the IM2 3.75 inch scale figure might fit well too, despite the armour differences. That thing was nicely painted and well-articulated, and I have extras of the single version. I don't believe I own the 3 pack version, but I prefer the single design anyway. It's also closer to the movie version, thanks to the big gauntlets.

It's hard to get too psyched at that line-up just yet, but I expect Toyfair to change that. I expect wave 2 will have Vision and co. I want a large number of characters for this scale, including a lot of people who just wouldn't be done at a larger scale. Had there been more to the Guardians line I'd have definitely bought in, but just the main team and a couple of extra people wasn't enough to bring me in. They're small, they're cheap, give me some oddball choices. Swamp me with them.

So my backfilling on the Marvel Legends line has been going pretty well. Got a Ronan series Dr. Doom that is leaps and bounds better than the earlier version. It's not even a competition. Then I scored a 4 figure lot on eBay I'm quite excited about. They consisted of a packaged Stryfe (who had the Jubilee pieces and only had a minor issue with the plastic on the back of his helmet-which was easily corrected with with an Exacto knife), X-Force Wolverine, Psylocke (who may find herself repainted into Rogue if the urge strikes me), and Archangel. The good one from the Hit Monkey wave. All for $51 shipped. I would have (begrudgingly) paid that for Archangel. And having the figure in my hands, he's totally worth it. The sculpting, paint, and wings are all phenomenal. I don't have a huge draw to the character, but this figure instantly becomes one of my top 3 or 4 Legends figs. Absolutely gorgeous.

In fairness, NOBODY seriously expected Guardians to have the kind retail legs it ended up having, nonetheless, Hasbro DID get everyone essential out, including the entire core team (which some multi year toylines don't even manage to accomplish).  About the only "lacking" selections might have been Yondu, Nebula and Thanos.

I'm personally expecting more from Avengers.

 

 

Though, given all the talk of the "2.5 system" in Hasbro's promo material, I can't help but wonder:

Marvel's new Secret Wars series is supposed to be a major "thing" for them next year, with lots of cross media support.  To me, that seems like the perfect venue to expand the "2.5 system" to more Classic Marvel designs, and the multiversal arc opens up a LOT of interesting ideas in what Hasbro could make.

The Thanos Wave of Legends has the missing Batroc that should have been in the Cap wave.

I wonder where that Valkyrie that was at NYCC 2014 is going to end up.

Maybe there'll be another Avengers wave?

 

Disappointing that Spider-woman and Hellcat share Thanos parts.

Makes it easier to avoid Hellcat because I'm not familiar with her at all and I have a budget to think about.

And the only one of that wave that isn't currently on TRU.com is Storm. Granted, they haven't been up consistently-but they are there now.

 

EDIT: Check that, Magneto is not there either.

 

 

I guess my point is that I would prefer it to be a TRU exclusive as opposed to, say, the Previews BAF Puck series.

We knew about the TRU part, just not when to start looking. Of course the bummer will likely be the price. I wonder how many repack&returns we'll see of this set?
