I browsed a Walmart after work today and found the Flash Gordon vs Ming the Merciless 2-pack.
That red and gold on Ming looks great and the cape is shiny.
I even like the box they come in so I may never open this set.

Still haven’t seen red box Phantom and he’s now sold out everywhere on line.

Do we think there will be more of him showing up or should I just pay the eBay markup now?

Are there bootlegs of the red boxes heroes?

VIPoutlet.com has phantom for 25.00, but that seems a bit shady.

Not sure if there’s bootlegs of these yet as I don’t see them at my usual china spots on eBay. Took a chance and ordered one from that site, for me it came out to $22.47 with tax and free shipping, let’s see how it goes when I get mines in the mail.

^ Thanks for taking the plunge!

Interested to see how it goes. I can’t find anything under fifty bucks anywhere else.

Have you tried Target? My store received a bunch of this wave.

None of the ones around me ever got it for some reason.

Never saw them on the online store, either.

Actually saw Lothar and Mandrake IN store today. They look fantastic, and I saw an Elivra pinball crate, City Hunter predators and some other stuff that was "new" for that endcap.

So I got my neca phantom in the mail today from vipoutlet. Man I got this guy super fast! I ordered it last Friday and got shipped on Saturday and I got today so it took a week to arrive.
Overall it’s a great figure, it feels legit not bootleg at all, it has all the articulation and accessories nothing is missing.
The one down side is the package did come slightly banged up a bit as it came in a large bubble envelope not a box. It also had a label on the top of the package, so if you expect to display this moc… you’re out of luck.
Lastly comparing it to the one I got from Walmart months ago it’s exactly the same I don’t see anything different from either one.
(Had it delivered to my work.)

Overall I’m happy with my order and the price is fantastic. I’m a bit disappointed I couldn’t keep it moc but I made a fix for it. If anyone else wants it sadly it looks like they’re out of stock as I don’t see on the site anymore.
