SDCC 2011: Hasbro Booth Tour

Compound Hulk: Marvel Universe NYCC Exclusive

Halleluya! An exclusive just for me!
On Marvel's Facebook page they announced this exclusive figure. And while it's just a repaint if the Red Hulk, it's not an exclusive that was lame like the Sentinel, or Marvel Legends Thor that eventually will see the light of a public release.

Marvel Select Disney Stores Exclusives In Hand!!

I didn't buy any of them.But I saw these at the Disney Store in Times Square New York. After the jump, I'll tell you why...



Series 3 (Wave 15) Wave 4: Marvel Universe Figure Reviews

Toy Haul: Marvel Universe Wave 15 found in Target!!

Because today is Wednesday (comic book day) I decided to visit my local target, (the one I get lucky at) and see if they had the new wave of Marvel Universe.

And boy did Lady Luck show me her Lady Lumps!

Classic Avengers: Marvel Universe 3 Pack Review

The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Alternate Reality

While browsing the web, I came across this wonderful pic. It shows exactly why the show is one of the best out there. The writes know how to use the history of the characters and are able to give old characters new twists.

Season 2 is supposed to air this Fall on Disney XD.

Toy Run: Deadpool/Taskmaster..If you Missed it

Today I went to the Mall, and decided to check Target. Now, this is "Trench's" domain I know better than to go to this store because I rarely find anything here. But since I was going to the Applebee's that's in the same mall. So I said let me check. And to my surprise I saw this comic pack. This is the first time I've seen it in Target. But it's a good thing. Same goes for the Wolverine/Silver Samurai pack. So if you had trouble finding this comic pack in the past. Don't fret.

That's one of the things I love about the line, It doesn't matter when you get into the line you'll be able to find all the figures you need.

Marvel Universe Buy 2 Get 1 Free Sale! Sept 18-24

Not as cool as buying 2 for the price of one, but anything to move that stock! Right TRU?!!
Good luck and happy hunting!!

Series 3 Wave 2 (Wave 13): Marvel Universe Figure Reviews

Marvel Universe Wave 14 Revision 2 Now in Stores

I went to Toys R Us Times Square on a whim, and to my surprise my eyes were assaulted!

G.I. Joe Target Sale! $ 6.99 Sept 11th till the 24th

As the title implies Target is having a Joe sale till the 24th of September. Each action figure will be reduced to the low low price of $6.99!

So far all I've seen are the "Pursuit Of Cobra" Figures, all of which were uncool (except for Low-Light, the Jungle Viper and Renegades Duke) But this is surely a move to make way for the new batch of Joe figures!

Happy Hunting!

Spider-Man & Captain Britain: Marvel Universe Comic Pack Review

I also have to report that while I was shopping I also came across the Disney exclusive Marvel Select Thor, but his face was flat like Deadpool's, so I didn't pick him up.

This review also confirms my suspicions that indeed Power Man is in New York!

X-Force: Marvel Universe 3 Pack Boxset Review

Rocket Raccoon!

I saw this in a store here in New York. I was almost tempted to buy it, since there are no reviews of this set on Youtube. But seeing how the raccoon is almost a statue. I couldn't justify spending 30 on this set.

I like Starlord's design, but not Drax. I check on Ebay and there are in fact people selling this set. Oh well I hope when I get my next paycheck the Fantastic Four and the Guardians are still there. Or in Target or TRU.

But check your local WalMart stores, you never know what you'll find. I hear the Fantastic Four set is the pegwarmer.

Is Power Man in New York?!!

On Labor Day I went to the biggest Toys R Us in New York, Times Square!!

So to my surprise I found a Deadpool/Taskmaster comic pack, and I was surprised that I've been seening more of these in that store, given that they were so rare when they first came out. And then I saw this..

I have seen a big amount of the Wolvie/Samurai, but I guess it's natural. My money is on the Spidey/Britain being the peg warmer, but seeing that this would be a new release I'm sure it will be hard to find both of them at first.
 Oh well let me know if you find these. I will check Ebay and Youtube to see if anyone has found them.

SWEET CHRISTMAS!!

The Goblin Wave?!!

In the past when ever I would find new figures, I would dub them waves (like Jean Wave, Bucky Wave) but I have seen the light! Well..I mean I know of the official designations of these waves as retailers know it.

Using the combined might of Big Bad Toy Store and Entertainment Earth I know reveal to you the new wave!!!

Wave 14 Revision 2!! Is in New York!!

How can I tell?

While looking for some stuff in T.J. Maxx and Marshall's (Gigantic Battles for $9.99!!) I went into a nearby Toys R Us and I saw Hulk and the Green Goblin. They were 9.98, so I decided to pass. But If I find Ms. Marvel and Thanos I will pick them up.

Carol Danvers I love you!!

So if you need any of these figures start checking your local Toys R Us. Good Luck!
