I mean, if you add up the costs of Galactus and the possible 6-figure F4 retro wave, plus tax, it's right at $600 for the whole shebang.
From my point of view I’d rather just buy the toybiz Galactus and the Mezco FF and be done with it. I actually just bought the toybiz Galactus
From my point of view the Jedi are evil.

I guess preorder charges can vary depending on the method you choose, right? Like PayPal? I use a cc, so I am good (unless I change my card).

Just seems like a gold rush on us here collector folk. Can a man not just complain on the Fwoosh in peace?

Why complain at all? Seems like some people just need to do it and will invent reasons to do so.

Blue is a generic code name for Walmart Exclusives.
Target is Bullseye (hence the false Retro Carded Bullseye rumor)
Amazon is Jungle.
Ah. That sounds familiar. Guess so many WM exclusives are Cap, I got the codename's meaning mixed up.

It's pretty insane that Walmart somehow got a strangle hold on Captain America figures..

It is crazy - curious about the logic as well. I feel for people who want Cap and are not near a WM, especially out west.

Remember when they had to pull the US flag deco from Deathlok because Walmart wouldn't sell anything with the flag not made in the US? Then they get all of the Cap exclusives because irony.

Ha? Sorry. I didn't mean to sound as harsh as I did. I just don't see a problem with Hasbro announcing a FF retro wave during their Galactus fund-raising. Just seems like good marketing.

No worries, Ash. I was being saucy last night, so I apologize. I try to keep things light on here as much as I can, so I hope people on here realize that.

I agree it is good marketing and have previously stated that, so I don’t blame Hasbro for their strategy at all. I love the idea of the retro F4 wave and getting Psycho Man and High Evolutionary. I am curious to see how this plays out on Monday and when the F4 wave is in stock. Doubt it will be soon since they have just teased a digital Johnny and the control box, but who knows.

If you always assume someone is kidding unless they give you explicitly clear reason to believe otherwise your life is easier and FAR more fun. Unfortunately about half to two-thirds of people never realize this. :oops:

I would love a Venom 2 figure of Carnage. I was hoping one would be revealed when the trailer came out, but alas it didn't. Still hoping we get one in either a solo release or a 2 pack or something
If we had gotten one it likely wouldn't have been accurate to the end product. We'll probably get one a couple years later just like we did with Venom.
