I now wish I had some 4" Fortnite Peely figures for that new Kong to chase. Hope new Kong starts showing up in stores near me soon.

You definitely need two of this one. The REAL question is, do you need three of this one? I feel like I've been waiting a good werewolf figure my whole life!

Dorkside's got it up now too. For those wondering about size, the copy says it's 11" long at "full length", so I dunno if that means like stretching all the legs out or what.

Sounds like that's what they mean, which is a very strange way of conveying the size of this thing. But I'm sure they're bracing themselves for this thing listing at even more than the price increase already implemented on their Ultimate figures. BUT LOOK, IT'S 11" LONG! (stretched out)

I was assuming all along it would cost a bit more than the rest of the Ultimates. I'm not seeing much potential for mold re-use, and it probably uses a bit more plastic overall. For example, how much did that giant Predator from the new movie cost? I was expecting around that range, so $35 works for me. If that's the new price of all Ultimates going forward, though, I'm less sanguine.

I'm absolutely not bothered by the price myself, I'll still pick up 2-3. But I'm sure they're weary of listing it higher either way.

Unless they start adding more unique pieces to the sets.

For example, just in the Predator series I have more than enough collapsed/expanded spears, blast effects, smart discs, human skull 1 and human skull 2 from the Predator line.

I'd like to start seeing some new stuff, like medkits, skulls with holes in them, alien (non-xeno) skulls, lacerating nets, standalone biomasks (not attached to a head), unique weapons (the current ultimate lost tribe is a step in the right direction here).

I get that they need the chance for new collectors to get those evergreen items, but this is pretty much a collector line, so the duplicates really add up.

Odd that BBTS is like the only retailer not offering the Kessler wolf yet. Anyone got any ideas why?

They close at 3:30 on Friday and aren't open weekends?

The Walmart in my town was setting up the pegs for a newly added neca/collector section. Hopefully, it's better than the Walmart near my job, which has lately been dreadful.

Is there any confirmation on whether that new King Kong is Target exclusive or not? I started calling my local Target, kinda difficult to explain what I'm looking for when they have 2 different Kongs on the shelf that aren't the right one.
