I cancelled several of the Marvel Legends I had pre-order since I just not feeling wanting the Age of Apocalypse figures right now. Still keeping Count Dooku and Crossbone active as I want both of them.
I was gonna buy hot toys dooku but now I don’t know. Waiting to see if money needs to be saved or not

Yeah spending money on unnecessary things right now is a little hard. I did just get the marvel legends Venom in the mail and he’s easily one of my favorite figures now

Does anybody else feel like not buying anything because of the pandemic ?
Hardly alone. Even the stuff I typically get on steep discount I'm hesitate to pull the trigger on because even a $20 figure at this point might matter if something suddenly goes south with my job and we're forced to close up.

I've instead gone back and just reorganized my figure shelves with new poses or swapping figures in and out to make it feel fresh and new. It's stupid, but just having a shelf of Transformers that I can transform into vehicles and back to robots every few days boosts my spirits.

Hey how long do I gotta wait until I can start throwing the "older line is better" meme Marvel Legends collectors say, but about the Bandai Power Rangers stuff?

Holy shit, my phone just caught on fire.
It was sitting next to me, charging, and I started to hear sizzling noises, then a burning smell.
As I reached to unplug it flames started shooting out of the USB-C port.

All the YouTube Influencer's are getting their Snake Eyes Hasbro Pulse exclusives out for review.

Where tf is mine?!

People in the comments sections says their order is on the way and I'm like for real?

You think because of the Rona, there might be some complications? That's understandable.

I got mine three days ago.
The brown is a little more subtle than it looked in some pictures, but I still left it sealed in case buyer's remorse hits critical mass again.
I'm still kicking myself for cutting the seal on that SH Figuarts ANH Vader.

I got an email today saying it's coming July which is a bummer considering I pre-ordered as soon as it went live. Maybe it's a California thing, but ahhh.

Hoping they took feedback on the initial joe reveals and will lean more toward classic design. The fact that they're numbering them like the black series means they intend the line to last for a while, I think

Even if they don't do that the designs should at least make some sense.
Duke is the worst there. All regular clothes... except golden shinguards. Like what?

Whatever they do, they need to look OLDER.
People who have been recruited because they're the best from the most elite teams are not going to be kids.

Yeah, they do look a bit anime, especially scarlett. I have high hopes for this line

Looking at the price for that SoC Leopardon GX-33R...wow.

I luckily found the original GX-33 release at a Comic Con vendor for like $55 new years ago (vendor had it on clearance).
