As someone who bought the Strong Guy wave at full price because I wanted the BAF, I have to ask how Warpath and Sunspot are discounted now but those dumb Deadpool variants aren’t? Was the demand for a pirate Deadpool really greater than for two essential X-Force members?

Also salty I paid full price for Shikalah.

I'm not sure how this is even a question to be honest, deadpool is actually popular.

Snagged 4 of the Strong Guy wave and a Jocasta. I've just gotten back in to collecting ML, so this is pretty good timing.
Amazon will probably honor the price for today and adjust the price to today's sale

When the wave lineup was announced, no one was asking for pirate Deadpool, and more people were asking for new Xforce members. A lot of people even said they had no interest in the Deadpool variants for that wave. I’m not sure how you don’t get the (rhetorical) question, to be honest.

Deadpool will however always sell to the public, very well , and has so far.

I think with this one it's more a case of which figure is more likely to be randomly picked up by a non-collector. You can slap Deadpool on anything, these days. I can't imagine the average person shopping at Gamestop, for example, even knows who Warpath or Sunspot are.

I started collecting in March of 2020 and I feel like I still have very little handle on which figures I should hold off on because they'll end up being available for cheaper. I did not expect MODOK to be available for cheaper so quickly. I held off on Thanos hoping he would drop in price but I haven't seen that yet.

The price keeps bugging out. It's listed as a Prime Day deal, but then sometimes when you go into the item detail it shows as the regular price, and sometimes it shows as the deal price. And sometimes when you add it to cart when it shows at $69.99 it gets added at $109.99. If you keep refreshing and adding to cart it seems to eventually work.

I suppose it depends on who this "lot of people" are. Worth keeping in mind that fwoosh posters are not necessarily representative of the collecting community at large, despite getting recognition for the top 10 list and the occasional first look at a figure like Callisto. there are a lot of folks specifically into collecting deadpool stuff out there but they make not collect figures for any other character (e.g., i see a lot of cars with deadpool decals/stickers on them - guess how many i see with Warpath or Sunspot or x-force?)

Speaking as someone who only bought Pirate Deadpool when the wave came out and finally got around to ordering Black Tom today. Pirate DP is just a fun figure, and frankly i wish hasbro would make more pirate themed ML figures (Ben Grimm as blackbeard, anyone?)

But i do feel the pain of paying full retail for figures that are marked way down later on. I think most of us have had that experience at one point or another.

GL beats Alpha Flight any day power-wise in my book. Resolve your grief by getting that GL / Dawnbreaker 2pk from McFarlane whenever it's out.

Same, pirate deadpool was the only figure from that wave I bought, didn't even know who most of the others or the BAF were.

No worries, Green Lantern is my favorite property and I have 2x 2-packs on preorder and bought 5 John Stewarts already!
I have Sasquatch and Vindicator that I got for really cheap and wanted to give them some company for a cheap price as well
