I had a friend of mine in the UK send me Ampfibian and Vulkanus. Same style packaging as the rest of the Ultimate Alien line.

Ampfibian is extremely cool, but I was a little disappointed by Vulkanus' articulation, or rather his lack thereof. He is very preposed and only moves at the head, arms, and waist. He's like one of those pre-posed figures in the comics packs.

But no problem with Ampfibian whatsoever! Definitely one of the most interesting designs I've seen in a while!

Hold on guys! Lucky you, you won't have to struggle getting the original (I think) Gwen and Pa Max figures after all from the UK! I just saw this at Toys R Us!

I think retail is $19.99...

Picked that Gwen/Max/Kevin/Ben(soccer) pack up at TRU today.. Problem is it was 24.99

Good news is there is a second pack as well-- it includes Ghostfreak, BenMummy, BenWolf (and the Ben Frankenstein-- Forgot his name already)

And that follows the Ebay rule since I just picked up a Ghostfreak and BenWulf off ebay about 3 weeks ago..

I love that they keep releasing older figures in gift sets (WITH ACCESSORIES)-- <Cough> Gentleman Ghost<Cough>

Figured out why-Looks like wave 2 of the comic packs never hit the main stream stores-- found them at a TJMaxx and a Marshalls..

Vulkanus came with Ultimate Spider Monkey (with new open mouth head)-- and the other is Ultimate Humungasaur with different Hand and the devil horned looking dude enemy (already forgot his name).. Both of the figures seem smaller than they should be (almost to the point of good looking happy meal toys)

Found a bunch of new stuff at TRU--

There were two new Alien 5 packs (however all of these are repacks of most of the newer aliens)


Also DVD Packs (hopefully these arent a TRU exclusive)- as they are 19.99

2 Packs are

X-RAY Ben (translucent black with Neon Green Skeleton painted on) and Diamondhead V2.

and Galactic Enforcers Costume Ben and Azmuth

Found those too. Almost picked up the one with Azemuth, but I think he was way out of scale.

Today at Target, saw a newer packaging de-luxe figures. Ultimate Echo-Echo HAYWIRE, Water Hazard HAYWIRE, Ultimate Spider Monkey HAYWIRE, Ben with Plumber Space Suit and NRG HAYWIRE. Picked them all up.

Just like you-- except found 4 other Haywires as well..

Ultimate Humungasaur (white)
Ultimate Amphibian (green)
Ultimate Terraspin (red)
Ultimate Swampfire (purple)


Also TRU last night had another exclusive 3 pack (which I wish I found before the comic pack)

Diamondhead, Diamondhead V2, and the Bounty Hunter from the 1st season that is the same race as Diamondhead (cool helmet-- no hoverboard though).

That's great stew... I'm on the hunt for the others too. I saw some ebay listings with WAYBIG. Is he coming as a de-luxe figure? And what about those GOLD editions??? I was kinda shock about those!

Slightly off-topic, but McD's is running a Ben10 Happy Meal right now. 6 translucent aliens, but I can't tell what they're supposed to "do".

I picked up the Plumber Suit Ben this evening. Cool figure! Passed on the Haywire figures, but they did look ok.

Got me a Way-Big this am! I am so glad they made him at this scale. It fits perfectly against the de-luxe figures...

Awesome! Is Way Big a U.S. release or a UK exclusive? Where did you get it at?

Just a side note, was in Dollar General the other day and they had some stripped down singles (figure only, no pack-ins) for $6. Not sure what all was in the tray but I'm pretty sure I saw Ultimate Spider-Monkey (tray was on the top shelf and the day I'd been having told me I'd knock everything over). Would think that Family Dollar and Big Lots would have these, too.
