Off Topic / Spiderman villians
« on: March 14, 2005, 08:23:34 AM »
Over the weekend I was amazed to find some of the villians from the spiderman line that have been out in the US since well before Christmas.

Scorpion - is a great comic version of this character - not a huge fan of the spring loaded tail feature, but it can be overlooked - and doesn't really take away from the appearance of the figure.

Lizard - don't know if I am a big fan of the new comic book version of the lizard, but this figure is a great rendition of him - looks perfect to the one pictures in the comic that comes with the Marvel Legends 8 figure Man-Thing.

Now, to find Sandman, and I am loving the way Mysterio looks - and no goofy built in action gimicks on either of these two.

I saw that avatar today, and had to show the first two people who walked by my office today.

-now they think I am strange.

Here we are, the middle of February, and I have not seen a single joe pack on the shelves at either ToysRus or WalMart since before Christmas.
I only found part of Wave 4 on that day anyway, it was like the ToysRus I was in only had 1 case to put on the shelves.
I also can't find any of the new Transformers Alternators.

I know this isn't much of a sightings post, but I thought after a dry spell of nobody posting, it would be nice to see that I am not the only one, or maybe it is just me, and I am not looking in the right places.

This really bothers me, the first Joe product to come along where I would buy one to open and one to display - and I have never seen any at retail.

hasbro really goes out of their way, to not take money from me.

I am almost to the point of saying screw it.

Wow, Hasbro knows how to make retailers and fans smile.

As I read your description, I was picturing a booth, that was decorated in bland gray colours, staffed with people in dark gray suits, looking down at you in disgust for even suggesting different ways in wich they could sell their prodcut.

I am interested in them - I really wish I could have gotten all of them that have been released so far without having to pay ebay and shipping.

Comic Three Packs - how did these pass Canada by?
I can already hear the answer from Hasbro Canada "Lack of retailer insterest."

I love the comic three packs - they would have been the first set of Joe that I would have bought two - one to open, one to display, but again they were never sold in Canada at mass retail - I went to Silver Snail to pick some up, but by the time I got there, they had sold out.

Stupid Hasbro Canada

The last time around, I sent the funds in US, and I did this time also.

I sent away for Agent Faces and he arrived without any problems - I am going to take a shot at Storm Shadow - the worse thing that could happen would be they cash my $2.99 and don't mail me a figure.
