I must say I really do like my first MU figures, WW Hulk, Apocalypse and the Sentinel.
Wolverine... erm... not so much! The sculpt and paint are the best I've seen on 3.75 scale figures. And although the sentinel doesn't have much detail its a lot of fun. I hated MU with a passion up until I saw Apocalypse and the Frost Giant in person a couple of months back and its changed my opinion that they were all crap. I'm still gonna be really fussy over what I buy, I can't afford to buy one of everything any more, but the for the first time in a long time I'm excited about collecting figures again. Very Happy

I've bought the odd character & box set over the past year or so.

They're getting better. The first few waves that came out were ass-awful, except for Blade & maybe Miss Marvel. And I never did find Bullseye.

What Gollum said the first waves were shit. I still think the female figures are bloody terrible so I don't buy them. Hoping hasbro redose them with an improved sculpt if they can make their female Joes look kick ass then they can do the same for MU goddammit.

My fave MU that I have are Apocalypse, Juggernaut errr....I forgot Very Happy

I've been going through the older stuff online and there isn't much that I want, so maybe my timing isn't so bad after all.

I want Colossus, bleeding edge (modular) IM, Thanos, modern Thor and Juggs from the older waves. And Cable, Cyke and Skaar from the newer waves.

The big chunky ones are my favorites. Thanos, Juggy, Apocalypse, WW Hulk, Cable.
Blade's pretty awesome, too.

The only female figure that even looks halfway feminine is Ms. Marvel.
MJ, the fan's choice, looks like a friggin' drag queen!

Gollum, I think we should set up our own Marvel Universe Bear appreciation club, what do you think?

Colossus & Juggs turn up at the entertainer from time to time it's where I got mine from, Bleeding Edge IM, Cable & Cyke are in the wave that's in Asda for £5 they may also be in Sainsbury's for £6.

Cheers Fox. I didn't think of trying sainsburys and I walked past one the other day. Mad

Do you know if Smyths stock them? I know they did ages ago but didn't see any last time I went.

Smyths by me haven't stocked MU since the first wave.

Thinking about it my nearest Tesco Extra still has in wave 7 which is the modern Thor wave they're full price though.

This has had the wave since it opened, they haven't sold any & Tescos won't reduce them to clear Rolling Eyes

The Smyths by me stocks fuck all MU's too shit it didnt even have 3" cap figures. Its main stock is WWE figs (suits me fine) and Star wars. fucking annoying!

My Sainsburys has given up on Toys all together. Tomorrow I have a day off work so ima set off early to go on a little toy hunt. IMF does your mobile number still end with 326? If so I can text you if I see anytihng. What are you looking for at the moment?

Fox and anyone same applies if there's anything you're looking for and I find it i could pick it up for ya?
