Re: Marvel Legends Infinite Series Guardians of the Galaxy Released in Canada

You're not alone on the "over priced" feeling. But I believe they are TRU exclusive (at least in Canada), and there seems to be demand for them, so I think people are snatching them up despite the price. I'm not sure I'll cave in and get the set for that price, but I'll be picking up a few.

Man, that really sucks. Though they don't have the Toys "R" Us exclusive sticker on them in thunderboy's picture...

Hopefully it won't be too hard to find a set. I definitely want to build a Groot. A little annoying that Drax's pants looks to be the wrong color. Everyone's outfit is before the final battle except his.

Haha, the only reason there's a demand is because they're the only ones releasing them. Well, the movie's success probably helped too.

Too bad TRU doesn't have the full wave available on their website for preorder, might need to go a different route.

Re: Marvel Legends Infinite Series Guardians of the Galaxy Released in Canada

I ordered all my Guardians ML Figures from Amazon.com a couple months ago. They were 20 USD each + shipping, so they ended up costing a bit more than TRU Canada, but not much more. So there's an alternative if you don't want to go on a hunt.

Why are they still pre-orders when they are showing up at stores?

Just got an email that they have started to ship out my preorder for the line via TRU.

No tracking number yet, so we will see what happens.

Re: Marvel Legends Infinite Series Guardians of the Galaxy Released in Canada

While these movie versions are nice and I'd like to buy them, I just don't see the need for these in my collection when Hasbro will be releasing a box set including Groot in comic uni's either later this year or early next.

This had been mentioned in an interview either at SDCC or somewhere, but it was recent. Also, Amazon.com has this wave on sale every other day, so keep an eye out boys and girls...
