TFitz, did you use a TBolts Moonstone as the base figure for that Binary? The white looks unpainted, and I can’t think of any other use of that body in that color except Moonstone.

"Some with nothing at all" is the motto of my one solitary "local" (meaning 20 minutes away) Walgreens. Which is why I hate exclusives there so much.
I hear ya. PA is the land of CVS, not Walgreens. Same as you, there is only one Walgreens within a 30 minute radius of me, and it's about 25 minutes away. And it's never been helpful for finding a single one of the exclusives. Now, there's a CVS about 25 seconds away, and plenty more after that, but that's no help either in this regard. I'm just hoping to be able to get my hands on Nova, Quasar, and Binary at a reasonable price, since I have zero chance of getting them locally myself. Fortunately, I haven't wanted every Walgreens exclusive over the years, but I did want most of them, and besides a couple a friend found in-store in NJ for me, I've sadly mostly resorted to eBay.

I'm gonna see how my arm and leg flame attachments from my old custom look on the new figure. Hopefully they will look good.

This Binary looks great! Well done.

Yeah. I did it way back in the day when I got 3 extra Moonstones on ebay for $20 each. Now I want to remove the paint and sell her. :lol:

I almost suggested restoring it but I didn't want to be rude!

Unfortunately I had to remove the gold paint from her forearms and chest so restoring her isn't happening. But I love that body still, so it is getting "cleaned" for new use.

Nice! Sculpt looks wonderful, but could probably use a bit of yellow towards the root of her hair.

I don't want to sound overly optimistic, but I went to a Walgreens today killing some time. Went to the toy section, and in the slot marked "Marvel 3 in 1 Stepford Cuckoos." was a HoX Wolverine. All alone. But still a new enough figure that it appears that Walgreens haven't severed all ties with Hasbro.
Now if the exclusives start hitting.................

You're the fourth person in the thread to report HoX figures at Walgreens, but that's the only non-exclusive anyone's reported since the Black Widow wave in early 2020. More recently the Bad Batch Star Wars Black Series wave released about 2-3 months ago with Hunter/Crosshair/Asajj Ventress/Bo Katan has been widely distributed to Walgreens, and I've seen those myself in four stores. So they certainly haven't cut all ties with Hasbro, the new toy person just seems to be paying little to no attention to some types of action figures.

Just got my Nova and Quasar in the mail. Nova is nigh perfect (maybe could have used more comic-esque colors and an unmasked head), but Quasar leaves a bit to be desired.. the pinless arms are great, but the head is all kinds of wrong and neck feels too short.

Anyone got suggestions for a more Capullo-esque headswap? I'm drawing blanks.
Yeah, Quasar’s head/neck is my only real complaint on two otherwise solid figures, and even at that, it’s not terrible. I think the sculpt itself is fine. The paint taps are just lacking a bit. (We seem to have taken a small step backwards in that area in general lately).

EBGames just put up Binary for pre-order, so Canadians, go get your order locked in!
She looks amazing and I cannot wait to get her into my collection. She'll work well on the cosmic shelf or with the X-Men.

Can't wait until they open the Canadian border so I can actually start finding Walgreens exclusives again :D

Well here’s some bad news! Robot kingdom just raised the price by $5 for Quasar. Was $24.90, now $29.90.
