I love that retro Goblin went bright - the Toybiz one was way too dingy. But it’s almost too much of a good thing - I keep meaning to hit it up with a wash to take the edge off it slightly.

Also, Amazon charged me for the Black Suit Spidey and it seems to have been already shipped so I should receive it in the coming week. I'm quite surprised as I thought it wasn't supposed to be released before November.
Did your figure ever get delivered? I'm just curious if the retro carded black suit is what actually shipped and of course want to see more pictures of it :lol:

Got my order for Venom in! Been so worried about getting it all day. Was surprisingly very painless.

Just can't wait to get my hands on it. I know the figure is a bit controversial due to the red and blue highlighting, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love it that Dan said on the livestream to get two of these (one to open and one to keep on the card) yet the limit on Pulse is one.

Star Wars did that yesterday with the Cantina Bar; limit was one and they called out needing four to make the full bar.

I was able to order 2 Venoms under the same account. I just had to place 2 separate orders.

I got my Venom, pretty much right as he went on sale. He's still available, FYI. He's too expensive to double dip on, but I'm torn on opening and keeping on card.

In keeping mine on card until we ever get more cel shaded spidey figures. Until then, hes the only one and staying on card

I’m keeping this one carded as well. More for the possibility that they’ll release a non-cel shaded version of him I’d prefer to open.

I'm opening mine. They're going to make a lot more of this figure so it's not going to be some priceless overly expensive nerd Hummel that no one ever plays with.

I like how they look carded. Not doing it for some kind of investment.

For me it's not about value or rarity. It's about the nostalgia double whammy of the retro card and cartoon paint. I love it. But I have so many Venom and Symbiotes that opened he could get lost in a sea of black and tendrils.
Same goes for the 20th Anniversary Cap. Cap is (one of) my favorite character(s). And was my first ML. And the packaging has a strong pull, and there's not enough unique about the figures to justify opening. And with the price point both of these are selling at, right now I can only justify purchasing once.

Venom is still available for anyone who is interested. I can’t tell how many are left on the app but I wouldn’t be surprised if he were down to the last few units.
