So annoyed, the next release of Marvel Legends...the Jubilee Wave is going to be released exclusively at TRU. I waited all these years for a Stryfe figure and now I have to go through the hassle of trying to track this figure. With scalping returning to a new high I doubt I will find one. Oh yeah, I waited all this time for a new Magneto and this one looks pretty awful.

Well its better than the Wolverine wave which was only available at COmic Book Stores--- (a) we never got rogue (2nd wave) and B) White queen was already marked up over 40.00 at pretty much every store that carried them due to the 1 per case pack.

The article says June, but knowing TRU, it could stay in their warehouse until July, August... December?

Anyways... kinda hating the exclusivity part of it all, as well. (TRU is notorious for their gauging their clients.) In fact, I'm basically hoping for Amazon or Target Online to carry them. 'Cause I'm not paying $24.99 for them (which is what the Winter Soldier figures are going for at the TRUs in my neck of the woods.)

TRU are out of their minds with 25.00 per figure. The problem is the fans and scalpers will pay that much money for a figure. The only way I can justify this purchase is because I don't collect any modern figs anymore, just the occasional figure here and there. I am getting the Battle Lion today but I don't generally buy MOTUC figures anymore.

imsuretheyailable by the time Comicon rolls around. TRU is known for getting some of these things early and/or without warning (like the last X-Men Marvel Legends box set). I'm sure I'll pick them up as soon as they come out, the price doesn't really scare me off.

I don't like TRU and I don't like giving them any exclusive (those of us who like Masterpiece Transformers know the pain of that)

But worse is that TRU gets to say what the assortment is. So, Yay for another Wolverine exactly like the old one, but with the paint it should have had and a new head.
And the ones who have been tooled like Radioactive Man, Agent Venom? Nah. TRU didn't want them.
That and the ones people will want, like Magneto, are 1 per case.*
I want the Storm, and holy crap I can just imagine how hard that's gonna be.

*Granted the Magneto is pretty blah, but lots better than the one we have (in classic costume) redecoed from an Iron Man in ML2. Yeah. It's taken 10 years to get us another one and that's what we got. <sarcasm>Horray.</sarcasm>

It is a shared exclusive with Preview. Preorder them from your LCBS and flip the bird at TRU if you feel that passionate about it.

Which means Storm and Magneto will be the regulary priced 50.00 figure at your LCBS this time instead of the white queen--


Previews Exclusive contains 8 individually packaged figures:
2x Stryfe
2x Wolverine
2x Cyclops
1x Storm
1x Magneto


BBTS has the set of 5 up for 150.00-- so maybe TRU will be looking to get more than that for them...

If you preorder the case of 8 assortment through Preview at your LCBS for $183.92 it breaks down to $23.00 per figure. You trade or sell off the remaining figures and don't have to purchase them at the inflated price your shop is overpricing them at. I can't speak for your shops, but mine usually marks his orders up to $25 if people don't preorder the item. That's why they're my shop.

Is this in Washington state or Oregon? Just wondering if I might go that route.... Well in Seattle at least.

Just wondering.... will TRU get these before the online retailers? Or are they (TRU and online retailers) getting it the same time?

I think I heard TRU has an early window on these. I've seen them all loose from china on eBay already, so I expect TRU will have these in stores sooner rather than later.
