maybe target & toys r us employees dislike it but hasbro employees really do not care. All they care about is their bottom line which is sales. They dont care by who

yeah I here ya there therapist. there just has to b a happy medium between completely bare shelves and overflowing clearance bins ya know? but I can see how difficult that is to calculate when ur in the pre-production phase. does Hasbro extend waves or make more of a certain fig if they are really popular? or is it 1 and done?

I'm willing to bet Hasbro would sooner cancel the line than try to hurt their precious scalpers.

I was super excited about the new run, but I've only ever seen 2 of the new ML's... Bucky Cap and the Agent X guy... the one in the white coat. I wanted a Steve Rogers so bad, but man is it hard to find any of these ML's. My local Walmart has them for $13, totally reasonable, but the other places that sell mark them up to nearly $20! 20 bucks for an ML?! C'mon! I won't even pay that for a Neca figure.

He's still hanging at my video store if you'd want to arrange a trade or something for him. I think his price tag had dropped since... well Arkansas really isn't a target demographic for collectors. I wouldn't mind arranging it and purchasing it for you.

There are a TON of scalpers but at the same time there is a TON of TRU, Walmart, & Targets. Not to mention Frank & Sons which has a better selection then Comic Con :lol:
