OK, this seems like…maybe not a good idea. (Marvel Legends Nemesis)

Just received the oddest press release I think I’ve ever gotten…this seems downright dangerous to me.

Hasbro’s Marvel brand team is very excited to let you in on some breaking news regarding its Marvel Legends line: The long-anticipated Marvel Legends Nemesis wave is finally hitting the U.S.!

We have learned that eight (8) San Diego area Wal-Mart stores will be stocking the Marvel Legends Nemesis wave, beginning this Wednesday, July 22 – in limited quantities, so act fast!  The lineup for this wave, in case you’ve forgotten, is as follows: Punisher, Daredevil, Black Bolt, Nova, Beast and Tigra.  There are also two variants in the wave – Punisher in camouflage and Yellow Daredevil.  That’s a total of 8 new figures!  Buy six (6) figures to complete a new Build-A-Figure: Nemesis!

The Marvel Legends Nemesis wave will be stocked at the following San Diego area Wal-Mart stores (while supplies last!):

  • 1360 EASTLAKE PARKWAY, CHULA VISTA, CA
  • 1150 BROADWAY, CHULA VISTA, CA
  • 75 N BROADWAY, CHULA VISTA, CA
  • 1200 HIGHLAND AVENUE, NATIONAL CITY, CA
  • 710 DENNERY ROAD, SAN DIEGO, CA
  • 3382 MURPHY CANYON ROAD, SAN DIEGO, CA
  • 3412 COLLEGE AVENUE, SAN DIEGO, CA
  • 4840 SHAWLINE STREET, SAN DIEGO, CA

I can’t help but feel a little pity for those hapless Wal-Mart employees who haven’t the slightest idea what is about to descend upon them down there in San Diego…

    When I was working at a camping store, cute valley-girls would come in to buy junk all the time. Of course, it's expensive junk because we know people who are into backpacking and camping are silly and will spend $20 on a titanium spork. So every so often, I'd trade on of them a $20 discount for a kiss.

    So, those Wal-Mart employees can be like demi-gods for the day if they play their cards right.

    WTF? If it wasn't for the Character names I would swear this was a Mattel press release – this sounds like their kind of dick-waddery.

    It would seem to pay living within striking distance of SDCC these days. Shame I'm about 6,000 miles away from that locale.

  3. @Poe. I live in SWMO and we have three for our 50k. Course there's so many here, I have 7 within about 20 minutes of my house.

    And before anyone gets jealous… Not a one carries DCUC!!

    Um… Who said Hasbro can do no wrong? They seem to get their fair share of criticism and outrage from the collector/fanboy community.

    I usually feel like I'm in a tiny minority that thinks Hasbro's handling of ML (and Marvel properties in general) has been pretty good overall. But even I agree that they can't seem to get human skin tones right and their articulation is often lacking (and occasionally downright odd).

    Where I often compare them favorably to, for instance, Mattel, is in their distribution. Unlike Mattel, I usually have no trouble finding Hasbro figures. It might take a while, but they almost always show up. I have a list of wanted figures from Mattel (going back to the Batman 6" line, The Batman animated line, and DCSH on up through DCUC) that I have either never seen at retail, or glimpsed once but stupidly waited on; while the only HML stuff that has been hard to find have been exclusive waves and two-packs.

    The Wal-Mart exclusives, like this Nemesis wave, have been particularly troublesome.

    Hopefully this strange SDCC release of the long-delayed wave means a wider release will soon follow.
