Never mind. As is sadly becoming more and more frequent with this line, I decided to go the Amazon route. I paid about $5 than retail, but at least I'll finally be caught up.

and I got the Inhumans today, 3 for 3 now. I might consider another of these. Medusa could be repainted in the FF costume and Karnak could be customed into Smart Alec from Gamma Flight.

I totally get grousing about availability (This is pure conjecture but I feel like the toy companies are trying to drive collectors to the internet to offset shipping costs onto the consumer.) From my point of view, they're happy to maintain the status quo of a thriving aftermarket. No judgment. It is what it is.

But on the issue of which characters they make, I gotta say I'm pretty happy. I don't love all of them, but I love and like enough of them to deal with the occasional huh? repaint. There aren't a ton of MU coming out in 2013 but most of them are rad while simultaneously catering to a wide taste. It is supposed to be the entire Marvel Universe. After all, it's in the name.

and Mattel was supposed to be producing 'infinite' heroes, but obviously that was very finite. :wink: I suppose all we can do is repeat the last thing the Aggie was heard to say after he jumped off of the building.

Found Herc on the pegs. Glad I waited and didn't pay any internet prices + shipping. I wouldn't say no to Puck if I saw him, but I don't care at all. I have my favorite Angel costume in the X-Factor box, so the fact that he and Nova have been nowhere to be seen doesn't bother me.

Bring on Mysterio, Hasbro! (And Vulture, if you have any respect for my sanity.)

Was on the other side of town at TRU and got Herc and Nighthawk. Just need Angel for the core Champions, but I still want a Darkstar...even if I have to make it.

and because I had the cash, I went to my TRU and got a Surfer. Not a big Surfer fan, but he completes the core Defenders. Now just need a Valkyrie.

I'm starting to see a lot of Herc and Nighthawk on the pegs. But zero Pucks and Angels and Novas.

And the re-released Spideys and Caps and Hulks are moving slowly if at all. I don't get why Hasbro can't just give us 2 of all the new figures in each case.

Went to a third TRU today and got Angel, Puck and Nova. Saw 2 each Herc and Nighthawk. At least they didn't give me any of those stupid baby coupons.

Glad to hear. My son & I are miserable at the idea of the line going away.

Question to all the Mu fans here. Would you buy Thunderbolts figures? I mean the classic team has never been captured in plastic.Post Civil War T-Bolts only have Bullseye. Dark Rein only has Black Widow. Yet the code red Thunderbolts they only need Venom and a recolored Punisher (easy as it is to customize) How is fair.The first team could use 2 three packs and be done
