Let’s Talk About the MU Line!

Thanos - w/ Infinity Gauntlet

This line of figures has started to impress me;  even with the smaller size of these figures the detail on them are outstanding!  I thought I’d show some of my nin-Hulk figures.  Wave 11 has proven to be extremely scarce around these parts – I was lucky enough to come across a Thanos and Constrictor in a Toys R Us Express – even better they were having a sale on them!  While I have only seen these figures just once – I did get REAL lucky with Wave 12 – which is great because that’s the wave that includes WWH and Samson – both of those reviews will be coming up this week. 

I wonder if he's Grimace's cousin?

I did want to discuss something – and would like to know what you guys think as well.  Recent trips to Target has shown that the $6.99 or even $7.99 price tag are now being replaced again with $8.99.  $9 for a 3″ figure?  Really Marvel?  Really?!?!?  Is this what happens when they are bought out by Disney?  I have yet to pay that price – I am lucky enough to find Target’s that have not raised the prices yet.  In fact, so far I have only had to pay the $6.99 price!  A great guy named Ted from SF snagged me a Samson at Walmart where the inflated prices were already in effect – but after finding some in Braintree later that day I was able to return the expensive one.

Juggy! One big mutha!

I know we’re talking about $2 – but that seems like a world of difference when it comes to these figures.  What are you guys out there thinking?  Who has seen these price increases?  How do you feel about them?  Who is willing to pay them?  Who is ready to boycott?!?

Jugs and Hulk have fought many times - and it's one of the best and most lively debates ever! Can the Hulk stop the Juggernaut?
