    Wha? Legs are bigger than arms. It would be easier to sperate them above the knee.

    I know that but I remember when the Kansas incident happened I saw pics of the figs in their blisters and the sticker on the front with the pic of AOA Wolvie had him coming with the hand of Giant-Man. And i remember on Fwoosh guys were saying how it sucked that everybody might have a Giant-Man missing a hand because thats the piece the AOA Wolvie variant comes with.

    I keep hearing that the WML won't be replenished after the initial display comes out...

    that would be the dumbest marketing scheme ever then. they'd loose money making the molds and not pushing them to their limits.

    you'd think that if they're going to have a display thing on the floor for ML all by themselves that they'd want to keep it refilled while the display is up. think of the displays that you've seen at WM, star wars, dora the explorer and crap like that. they usually stay around for at least a month.

    Mainly because they have to get WM to commit to certain amounts of cases too right??? WM probably doesn'twanna get stuck with stuff that won't move

    Yet they're heavily backstocked with SMC figures. That's why I won't be seeing a spiderhulk or hobby any time soon, they're so backstocked on SMC that nothing will happen.

    There's something about rate of sale also, there's no rate of sale on new stuff, so they don't know how fast new stuff will sell. Older stuff has it but...I dunno, there's no sense of this stuff.

    i got spiderhulk and hobby from ez just cause i didnt think i'd see them anytime soon b/c my WM has the same backed up figs crap thing as well. With SMC, and of course ML 12. But I think that they will know the WM wave will sell and the 2 packs.

    good thing is that no matter what, you got fellow hysters to get your back. you'll end up with your WM wave either way.

    spiderhulk is a lot cooler than phasing vision. i just got him today. i already opened hobby but am waiting for a rainy day to open spiderhulk. hobby is better than expected except for the fact that he has old people nobby needs. i hope they dont ever break.

    Both are great, I have both currently. But I have other higher needs so I have to sacrifice in order to gain. I'm cool with it though. Having Spider-Hulk for a lil while is cool.

    Went to Wal-Mart today and I saw nuthin' but the same ol' same. There's actually 2 Tech Beasts, 4 HoM Wolvies, 1 Stealth Cyke and 1 BoP Angel at my WM. Along with 5 Ruby Armored Cykes. Couple of Maestors, a purple X23 and a Sassy. SMC was only the most recent Spideys, no more Hobgoblins or Spider-Hulks.

    Still no damn WM wave or 2packs.

    Well, I trusted him since he was a pretty cool poster and me and him had several convos about the SOTA Street Fighter figures. As a matter of fact one of the figures I traded him was a Vega figure from the street fighter toyline
