This is sadly why I've stopped collecting. I never got into the 4 inch figures, and the 6 inchers I do collect are way to rich for my blood anymore, unless I see a character I really want, I guess.

I feel the same. If I break down and spend 20 bucks on a figure, its most likely a Marvel Select figure. Or goddamn huge.

I remember when you could get an awesome 6-inch Marvel Legends figure with a bunch Of accessories for $8. Now all $8 buys you is a little 4-inch figure with a base.

Now all the 6-inchers around are nearly $20. Yesterday I saw a Golden Age Batman Legacy figure with Bat-mite, a small poster, and a stand at K-Mart for $16. In 2004 I bought the Marvel Legends Silver Surfer with board, flying base, comic book and Howard The Duck. All for $8.

We just keep getting less and less, but prices still go higher and higher.

I need to move where you guys are. MU is always $9-10 unless on sale/clearance, here.

EDIT: I remember when my parents told me $3 was too expensive for a Ninja Turtle figure once. lawl.

Digital Ghost 08-07-2011 05:15 AM

It did end a while back... but they started the sale up again on the 4th, I believe. :tgrin:

Got these today at my local K-Mart

TheCanadiandrome 08-10-2011 11:07 PM

dude! those are wicked!

Brodie 08-11-2011 03:42 PM

Need to snag Tygra and Lion-O.

FYI, Toys r us is currently doing a buy 2 for $10.99 deal on all Captain America/Thor/Iron Man/Marvel universe/etc figures.

Might see if I can snag some MU fillers, like Scarlet Spider, 90s Cyclops or Colossus.

Ninjinister 08-12-2011 07:44 AM

I saw their little sale, but sadly, the last four or five times I've been to TRU they've had the exact same stock of MU (and just about everything). That and I'm a bit skint right now. Woe.

Wait, when did Scarlet Spider come out?

Brodie 08-12-2011 05:38 PM

A week or so ago. Saw it at target with Doc Strange and Doc Doom.

Similarly, I went to 2 TRUs last night and they had ****all.

Ninjinister 08-12-2011 08:33 PM

Well s**t. I finally just finally tracked down all I wanted of the previous wave at the tail end of last month online, after finding nothing but 1 First Appearance Wolverine and a few Gladiators in stores.

Lucky bastard. I've had no luck finding the twins anywhere.

IamtheKnight 08-14-2011 06:48 PM

Found Cheetara and Panthro today at Kmart.

Slap-Happy 08-16-2011 03:32 AM

I got the New Blood Jason Voorhees rerelase from NECA.

Great figure, and IMO definitely worth $10.

Powder 08-16-2011 09:13 PM

Picked one of these up at Target today for $12 somethin'. It's nicely articulated.

Yeah, that articulation on Pikachu looks phenomenal.

His eyes look pretty terrible. Ash looks neat though.

Well I was referring to Ash as I'm sure you know. He's pretty decent, especially considering the sh*t quality of most Jakks toys.
My pikachu's nose for example is basically painted into the mouth.

Marvel Universe X-Force Archangel. Yeeeeahhh!
