So people are posting pictures on Reddit that Walmart stores have gotten this wave, the What If? and Eternals waves AT THE SAME TIME. :shock:

Distribution sucks. :lol:

My Doctor Strange just shipped from GameStop ... despite my What If T'Challa not shipping yet, even though I preordered it and it's currently in stock. The unpredictability is honestly kind of exciting.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned but the reissue of Vulture is going up at 9am EST October 3rd.

The FFH Spider-Man with Peter head is going up during Walmart's two day collector con, October 7-8.

I still don't really think I need the new Vulture. If they put Thena up then, instant buy. Vulture is just a redeco. Albeit, there are things I like about it, but he is prob gonna be like 40 bucks. Really worth it? Meh

Yeah, if you don't have the original version it's absolutely worth it, but I prefer the first one more despite inaccuracies. I think it's the only BAF I have that I hunted down piece by piece rather than buying a wave or going through Dorkside's BAF listings, so that kinda cements it more for me.

I honestly have never looked at my current Vulture and said "this is inaccurate!" or anything. He has always been one of my favorites. Paint on new one looks nice, and I like some of the additions, but with the Eternals wave and exclusives all hitting now, the Spider-Man figures I ordered shipping, now Mobius just shipped... I just don't know if I can justify Vulture at this point.

This wave showed up in my little Walmart. I've already got the ones I wanted on a preorder sale, but cool to see this arrive early.

I also don’t NEED another Vulture, but could probably be talked into it. My problem with the new one is that the colors look like he’s a What If? Vulture; the BAF looks like his clothes are realistic colors.

Yeah, same here... until I saw the new one. But once I saw the inaccuracies, I still didn't mind it. I really hesitated to build the wings but I'm so glad I did and he is definitely one of my favorites now too.

That's a good point. I hadn't thought of it that way, but definitely saw the colors on the new one as too vibrant for my taste.

I guess Vulture is the new Thanos, where you can have a perfect version if you get both and mix parts.

yeah that's my issue, he's just way too vibrant... but i like some of the added aspects.. maybe a kit bash could work?

I'm just glad I was able to sell my BAF Vulture earlier this year for almost $120. And if you account that I originally got the entire wave at $9 each...I think I made out pretty well on that one.
I purged all my MCU Villains actually, and they paid for a few new waves of figures.

If the new Vulture had the Keaton likeness that got nixed at the last minute I would likely have caved at some future point. As-is, my Vulture has the knockoff, unpainted unmasked head I bought on Ebay on in my display and I don't mind one bit.

This is another figure where I also never noticed the inaccuracies
