As of now the shiny silver Surfer hasn't been made. I wouldn't count out the possibility since Hasbro does like the repaints.

I have a question for Jim. The Silver Surfer on the back was real shiny while the one in the pack was just grey. Is the shiny silver one a varient or something or was jusn't made?


Okay, I've only seen the FF once and didn't have the cash to pick them up at the time so I can only comment in gerenalities. I'm gonna say "no" to the shiny one since the SHS are made of PVC (rubbery) plastic there would be no way to vac-metalize (chrome) the toy without it cracking/flaking off far too easily. There may have been an early attempt to make that one figure out of a harder material that would accept the vac-metal process and that may be what's pictured on the card since the card art needs to be done about the time the paint masters are finished.

NEW WAVE IS OUT!

Found Beast/Iceman, Phoenix/Wolverine & Thing/Mole Man at my LCS yesterday; they said they'd just arrived yesterday morning (but they'd already sold out of Nightcrawler/Juggernaut.)

They're really neat...I like the translucence on Phoenix & Iceman, and Beast is...well, just adorable!

Although, now having the SHS Mole Man...I want one from ML! :D

I've had to resort to getting wave 3 and 4 online due to the clogging of pegs for wave 2. Are these selling well elsewhere? I hope the line continues for a bit longer. I would think we'll see a few more waves shown at SDCC.

Hey Grouch where did you find Wave 4 (with Nightcrawler) for sale on-line? I'm dying for that set and I don't really want to wait.

Images of three more Spidey packs are floating around...Spidey/Black Cat; Spidey/Mysterio, and Venom/Puma. (Ok, first Mole Man and now Puma, getting SHS figures before ML figures!) Mysterio's very classic-looking!

I preordered from BigBadToyStore.com. I gots'm in my "pile-o-loot" right now. I'm not sure if they still have any in stock but it's worth a look.

I hit the K-Marts, Targets and TRUs in Tulsa yesterday and Target had the FF run (which I picked up), but no Galactus or Sentinel or the X-Men wave... :?

I'm curious, I see the Galactus and Sentinel going on eBay for around $15 to $20. How much are they (when you can find them) in the stores? :?:

Thanks!

I'll keep looking. More often than not, stuff hits here later than other parts of the country.

My Kmart had them @ 10.99 each. That means you might get them for 9.94 if they ever reach Walmart.
