Thanks for the welcome John, here is a snippet of info for you all....

 

This info is HOT  NEWS.  Seems the French collectors who have only just got mystique also received a questionaire asking about DC and JLA range of figures.  Maybe thess are being considered as the next series after Marvel. :)

I was kind of hoping DC would get something similar produced.

Also glad that the Marvel collection is getting bigger as some good characters are missing from the lists I have seen.

David, what list have you seen?  The one on WIKI has been wrong for ages.  Everytime I correct it someone changes it back :(  seems to be OK for now tho.

We have the names of figs up to 80 (confirmed by EM) plus a few others of those in the 81-100 range.

Must look at your list.

LOL, it has been confirmed on WIKI that the earth is flat, apparently a geological survey was carried out by Elvis and a Yeti in a spaceship flown by ET.

 

All true....honest.  :)

My collection has grown to 12 figures now, so my big question is -- do any of you know of a source for these things from which I can just order up all the ones I want and not have to seach eBay or other nefarious sources?

Diamond Comics in the U.S. has taken up an interesting means of offering the series. Pairing the two newest with two of the originals every month. You can pre-order them via your local Comic Book Shop every month. Each figurine and magazine pair is $12 each, though many stores offer a discount if you're a member. I pay $10 each for mine. The Specials like Hulk, Juggernaut, and Colossus retail for $20 each. Black Costume rooftop Spider-Man is $29. They also offered the Binders for $12 and the Plinths for $22. No word on Galactus.

By the way, I have contacted Eaglemoss and it's been confirmed that the United States will not be recieving either the 'Blue Angel' or 'Dark Phoenix' variants via Diamond Comics due to exclusive distribution rights with Forbidden Planet International. If you want either of those variants, I would suggest that you get in touch with someone from the UK who can help you. Also, it's unlikely that the U.S. will get the original Rooftop Spider-Man due to dwindling supplies in the UK. So keep that in mind also. Cheers.

 

This is a direct quote from one of the US based collectors (BEAST) on the MARVEL forum. We have several US collectors and any one of them will gladly help your source the figures.

 

cheers

Steve

I've had trouble getting the Black Costume Spider-man.

Would like to see a few more variants... saying that, where would I fit them amongst my 53 others...
