A couple of days before leaving for San Diego Comic-Con, our friends on the Hasbro Marvel team sent me the prize packs for the Marvel Universe Covers Contest (announcement | entries). Included was a set of wave 1 of the Marvel Universe Secret Wars line. I took pics of the packaged figures, but it’s been such sweet torture, having them in hand but not being able to open them.
When I got back home, I went food shopping with my wife. Instead of stopping in the store with her, I went to the local mom and pop toy store around the corner, and I was psyched to find these figures on the shelves. Thank you, Talbots Toyland!
