Kang & FF Spidey should be out with these too, but I didn't see 'em.


Yeah, I struck out at TRU in the MU dept.

But hadn't been to a TRU in a while, so it was nice to see actual pretty well-stocked toy aisles!

Also nabbed a Classic Donatello, which sucks cause now I need the rest. :lol:

Cool review but why did you keep taking the cape off? I think the cape is what really makes teh fig.

Sweet review!

I'm parting ways with MU I think... I just can't pull the trigger on 'em lately. I really wanted the Red Mandarin, but I don't want to spend the $20 (even though the white/red Centurion armor looks swanky). I wanted the FF Spidey/Doom 2pk and again couldn't spend the $20. Arguably that's because they should be $15-16 at somewhere besides TRU.


I've culled quite a bit. I'm down to Thor-related and a few others like 80s She-Hulk, the two versions of Captain Britain, FA/Gold Iron Man, Black Spidey, USAgent, Black Cap, War Machine, Galactus, maybe Goliath & the Sentinel (I haven't decided on the last two yet). Ironically, culling also exemplifies that I really want to pick up Firestar and a not-clear version of Iceman.

And I still need to find a damn Beta Ray Bill...

Finally got Kang and She-Hulk (had to get 'em online) and I lucked out on Shulk's paint ops, pretty dang clean.

Like you Noisy, I kinda wanna be done with MUs (have pretty much every character I want), but if they continue with the quality of these newer ones, it's gonna be hard!

But as of now, all I'm really after is the handful of forthcoming X-Characters they've revealed, that new Rhino, and I think that's about it.

I'd also be down for a 90's X-Force boxed set (don't judge!!!) with a more 90's-esque Cable, Shatterstar, etc.

Are you guys finding MU outside of TRU?

At least where I live, it seems like MU singles aren't refreshed at Target and Walmart

None of the WM's near me have refreshed since Feb on MU. Actually it looks like the last refresh on anything was Amazing Spider-Man, no Star Wars, no Avengers, no MU, nothing.
