    I got up this morning to make sure they were still in stock, and magically they were out of stock before the store even opened up this morning.

    Guys! i'm angry!! look at this why is star lords pants blue!!? http://marveltoynews.com/wp-content...el-Legends-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Figure.jpg When in the movie their black!? but at toy fair the figure had black pants? http://news.toyark.com/wp-content/u...2/Toy-Fair-2014-Hasbro-Marvel-Display-247.jpg But in the new comic starlord has blue pants! why did hasbro color the pants blue when in the movie their black!!! also why didn't hasbro make a Ronan and Nebula figure?! instead of those stupid comic figures that have nothing to do with the movie! they did the same thing with TASM 2! instead of making that Green goblin BAF they could have made movie Rhino the BAF! and instead of that lame beetle figure they could have made a movie Green goblin figure! they did the same thing with CA TWS instead of making that zemo figure we could have gotten a great Falcon figure!!

    Well neither the final nor prototype are right since it looks like the pants in the movie are a really dark blueish gray.

    No Ronan or Nebula is a weird choice since effectively you've got a line up of all heroes with no villains. I'd imagine they saved them for a wave 2 but it still seems odd to sacrifice 2 figure spots for "Comic" figures that have no involvement with the film.

    ...or do they.

    They don't. The ASM2 line had Superior Spidey, Black Cat, Carnage & Boomerang; while the Cap line had Skull, Zemo, HYDRA soldiers & AIM soldiers. Hasbro is now using the movie lines to sneak in fan requested figures & add more popular characters to the shelves like the Iron Man.

    I bought a Star-Lord Pop Funko, but it seems the only way I can get the other one (without his mask) is if I pay a ridiculous amount for shipping! :(

    Thanks Leo, but I'm not sure if the US Amazon delivers to the UK?

    Anyone know if they do?

    Has anyone seen the Star-lord masks from Diamond Comics in stores? I know they shipped last week so some stores must have them, I know they are exclusive. One of my local comic shops has one on pre-order for me. I hope it's half decent for some modding.

    Price scalping; when individuals buy limited run figures off the shelves (in this case, Gamora and RR,) and sell them on eBay to desperate fans for anywhere from 2x-4x their price.

    I have seen some of the two packs in the Atlanta area - boy are they tiny. Also had the 12" Star Lord.

    I've checked several Wal-Marts in the area and only one has put out any Guardians merchandise so far. All they had was one set of Marvel Legends so I picked up Nova, Rocket and Gamora for now. Target and Toys R Us have the merchandise but the Legends are a little scarce in those places.
