I don't know Stew. Hasbro's had a pretty successful run with re-releasing exclusives uniquely in the past. I think she'll eventually be done. Whether that is in the near or once something S.H.I.E.L.D. related comes to light I don't know?

Companies have been putting exclusive figures in sets like this for years. It's nothing new. GI JOE aircraft carrier for example had what was his name Keel Haul. It's sad the GI JOE one is alot better than this though made over 20 years ago imo.

You mean the USS Flagg? That wasn't an exclusive though. It was sold at most every big box retailer back in the 80's.

Plus almost every single Joe Vehicle Back then had a figure-- -each was an exclusive in theory -but you didnt really have to jump through hoops to buy them--Not like you will with this (although if they guaranteed constant stock at HTS- you probably would get as many complaints.)

Imagine setting this up like some of the Ulitmates Comics- where they had the whole fleet of 10-12 of the Helicarriers-- its like the Hoth Scene for Marvelites..-

I never said it was an exclusive just using it as an example of having to buy something just to get a figure you can't get anywhere else. You had to buy the USS Flagg to get the Keel Haul figure not that anyone cared about it cause the carrier was so awesome but it's the same thing.

A better example I guess would be the Death Star pack from last year w/ 2 exclusive figures. At least they picked someone like Maria Hill though who would be considered a C or D level character. I wouldn't even buy her as a single pack.

I know selling Hill single carded at retail would be a bad idea. I just think that if they were going to do her as an exclusive figure, that they could have at least put her in a 3-pack with Coulson and Fury.

That is a very good idea and I would actually buy that one.

Apologies for linking to a eBay auction, but I had not seen this packaged in the box before. And seeing it in the box just shows the enormity of this thing! Nice!

Or a 2 pack with a suited up Agent "Barney Howser" or "Doogie Stinson" -- Doogie cold be the Son of DumDum. :mrgreen:
