Weekend Toy Run: Pre-Order the Marvel Legends Rhino Wave at Entertainment Earth

Marvel Legends Rhino wave

Generally, I prefer having the option to order Marvel Legends figures individually, so I’ve been waiting for the Rhino wave to show up on Amazon, like the Marvel Legends Ant-Man / Ultron wave did a couple weeks ago – but inexplicably it hasn’t yet. So I am doing the next best thing – I’m pre-ordering a case of the Marvel Legends Rhino wave at Entertainment Earth for $159.99 with free shipping. That will leave me with a duplicate Scarlet Spider to give away.

There are other options: you could pre-order the Rhino case or a seven figure set (no dupes) from BigBadToyStore. The case costs the same as EE, but shipping is extra. And the seven figure set only saves you $5 at $154.99 – and again you pay shipping. The math there doesn’t make sense to me.

Toys R Us also has the Rhino wave up for pre-order – they currently show up first when you search for Marvel Legends on the TRU site. While you can pre-order the figures individually, they’re $21.99 each – for all seven you’d be at $153.93 (with free shipping, though) so to me it really only makes sense if you’re going to cherry-pick the wave.

DesignerCon 2013 Weekend Alert

DCon-2013 FULLERDESIGNS-DCON_original FULLERDESIGNSv1_original

DesignerCon is being held this weekend in Pasadena, CA, at the Pasadena Convention Center. DCon is an annual art and design convention that is basically a mash up of collectible toys and designer apparel, along with with urban, underground and pop art… including skate decks, original art and custom toys.

Example of cool collectible?

Fuller Designs – see his Spider-Man Minicel, Mysterio Minicel, and Ghost Rider Minicel – each OOAK and available for $125. That said, you might have wished to get Fuller Designs’ OTHER collectible – his Trick R Treat villains – Joker, Red Skull, Dr Doom and Loki. These were super cool bad guys hand-made resin pieces, using Fuller Designs’ own Lil’ Jammie design, hand-painted with acrylic and airbrush paints, and came with their own little pumpkin full of goodies… I said “came” cuz they’re all SOLD OUT, but are really worth a look.
