No Red Deadpool yet the ones (2 only2)on ebay are from the two pack. I assume the big H has plans RDP should be one of the most common figs on the shelf, if they learned ANYTHING from the twin packs. I havent even seen xforce Dp at retail in Texas.

I don't know how many are aware of it, but the entire third wave (not counting the variants) are available on Amazon for insanely cheap.

Kinda ticks me off that I preordered these from BBTS. Kinda really ticks me off.

Doom

USAgent

X-Force Deadpool

Punisher

Mystique

Iron Man

Patience is a virtue.

I've been burned more by jumping the gun than I have by simply being patient. The problem is, you just never know . . :wink:

I'm not much into the ML line but this does not look good. Too many figures going on clearance really fast. I'd bet the line is canceled in a year maybe sooner.

Very true my friend. I wouldn't have a third of the collection I've amassed, had I been impatient and impulsively bought stuff at first sight, like a lot of collectors I know. I'd rather never have an integral part of my collection, than to overpay for it, and regret it later.

I regret nothing. If I see something I want, I get it. Of course I'm no idiot I do try and find the best price but this patience stuff doesn't always work, sometimes something sells out at a high end price only to turn up higher and higher... I've been doing this too long to live with wishful fantasies of that amazing goldmine find somewhere in a back alley flea market.

Although the day Subscription figures turn up in thrift stores will be amazing!

That's kind of my point though, VS. It's why our ideas are diametrically opposed. There's nothing wrong with the way you collect (since there's technically no 'right way'). And more power to whomever is able to buy whatever luxury item (term used loosely) they desire and still remain fiscally responsible. I don't have the type of disposable income to even contemplate doing that, and if I did, there's about a 99.9% probability that I still wouldn't do it. :lol:

I get that. I was there at one point in my life. I'm sure everyone has been at a time or another. Although, I'll believe the last statement you made when I see it. :lol:

I was pleeple ass broke between the years of 1998-2000. Didn't really have a home to call my own, nothing. Couldn't collect the things I wanted and could barely get the latest Doctor Who on VHS. NOW... now I'll buy any comic from between those years, doesn't matter how many I have in stock! I love everything from between those years now that I can afford it! :lol: But then I'm crazy like that!

Hey Van Statten, I just realized but a little OT since this is the ML series 3 thread and not ML series 1 2013 thread but I believe you and I are both waiting on some figures from that wave from an overseas buyer on ebay, yeah this is drkknght64 from the FWOOSH, lol.

Hey, that's cool, sounds like yours could make it to you before Christmas.

Oh it should, I have never had to wait longer than 10-12 days for anything from there. If anything it will be Stateside long before Christmas and could be held up in customs for a bit. That only happened once for me but has been known to happen to others.

They reset the aisles of Meijers-- with this wave- I was too late too see what hit other than the remnants of the wave...
