Man, I went to two separate Walmarts today (greater Boston area), and they were about cleaned out of Avengers stuff. One had the pegs for the 6" figures, but no figures. The other didn't even have a spot where they would have been hanging. Ugh. eBay for me, I guess.

Has anyone heard whether there will be a 6" Captain America figure without the helmet? I know there is a 3.75" version like that, and I could swear that a long time ago, we saw a promo image from Hasbro about a 6" variant... but to my knowledge it's never appeared.

Came across this in my internet searches: Avengers USB drives:

(The bad news, they're mostly available in Taiwan and are selling for high prices in the U.S.)

Went out running errands today and hunting for some new movie merch, didn't find much but I did stumble on these plastic stadium cups at Walmart. Really great art on these and lots of surface area for it to cover so they look really cool. They're 4.5" tall by 3.5" wide, kinda flimsy plastic but they are meant to be 1 or 2 time use cups for kids parties but for $.89 a piece you can't beat the price for some cool cups to display.

There are 7 of them total, 1 for each of the 6 team members and 1 of a group shot of the 4 big guns (Cap, Iron Man, Thor & Hulk).



4 Big Guns, Hawkeye & Hulk

Shame that Hawkeye never wore those shades in battle.

Has anyone found the 6" figures in Illinois anywhere? I have been through 3 Walmarts and they do not even have the pegs set for them.

I've been hitting the local WMs for 6" figs and had no luck. I am afraid that these toys will be snatch up as soon as somebody finds them because they are so hard to find, thus increasing their value. Still not willing to buy the marked up internet prices but if I still don't find them in a month I may have no choice.

I have never witnessed someone scalping toys, but when I was looking for the War Machine Wal Mart Exclusive for Iron Man 2 and I saw this guy take two pegs full of both War Machine and Iron Man he had at least 5 of each, I was dumbfounded lol .

The first sighting was posted on toyark two weeks ago and the user was from Illinois

Well Wal Mart and target are cheaper than TRU, then Walmart by a couple cnts than Target. Basicllly if the cheaper place is further it wouldn't be worth the gas lol

As I said, the Framingham MA Walmart had empty pegs marked with the price and description for the 6" figures. They were just cleaned out. There were no figures of any kind left. Just some of the masks, and the little Cap frisbee shields.

Still nothing in North Carolina yet. I've checked about 4 in the area and they only have the 3''. Would love to get a Thor and Loki of the 6 inchers.
