Was visiting the Toys R Us website and found the next wave of Marvel Legends up for pre-order.

Thanks for the heads up! I only wanted Scarlet Witch and Captain Marvel and this will save me a lot of hunting.

Thanks for the heads up. Here's a direct link to all of the Marvel Legends. It looks like Scarlet Witch is sold out on the preorder. Not sure what that means, but hopefully it goes back in stock soon.

Someone else gave me this heads up early yesterday morning. Of course TRU is one few of the places (that I deal with) that require payment for pre-orders up front. With it being so soon after Christmas, I'm still broke. Ah well. Them's the breaks...

You can do it through Paypal and not get charged until the items ship from what someone on one of the Facebook groups was saying Alcinde' :wink:

Really? Sigh. Of course both of the lady's pre-orders are sold out.

Ah, damn it. I preordered the ones that weren't sold out, but I don't know why I bothered, since I'll likely just have to cancel them and buy a whole case somewhere else.

I saw some of this wave today at Walmart.
Iron Fist, Hawkeye, Thor and Machine Man.
Gotta say Machine Man was the one calling to me even though Thor and Iron Fist are among my favourite characters. (I will always prefer classic looks for my figs, so these costumes are ca-ca)

They all look great, but price is out of my range because I'm focusing on DCC Batman animated.

Is it odd that Canada is getting them first, or is it normally like that?

VERY odd.
We never get anything first, and never in any quantity or breadth.
Before a passport was required to cross the border, I'd drive over on toy hunts and be blown away at your in-store selection. You guys got stuff I'd never heard of. (I recall the KRYPTO toy line as only one example. I still have my ACE the Bat-hound!)

From what I've read Canada would sometimes get final waves of cancelled toy lines.
For example, I remember getting the final wave of INDIANA JONES figures when the line was pulled.
(Temple of Doom wave. With Short Round and Willie Scott etc.)

it's going to be the same as the Cap Legends so it may not help that much.
