I emailed ferrara last night asking for an update to my order from the 23rd. They said they were 5-7 business days behind on shipping. So I guess I'll wait a few more days to see how it goes.
my response was similar. i ordered on the 28th. seemed odd they put it in business days. if i needed to move inventory for money i'd be putting in weekends on it. probably just a 1 or 2 person show there from the delay and the quality of their site. i'm hoping to see someone mention they have tracking or a delivery from them.

my big boy order delivered today. ordered saturday. everything was there. probably not that big there either. they used a cut down factory case from some other product as a shipping box. not an issue. just a small business saving what they can with reuse.

great deals but you know these places are selling below cost.

I also received my BigBoy order today. Just a couple of loose vintage Joes, a loose Transformer, and NECA Fugitoid. I see this sale as the coming of the end for that business. I think high prices are really starting to mess with small businesses.

The constant sales literally everywhere feel great for now but they are really not a sign of a healthy market.

High prices, quality going down, people now buying less and waiting for sales that smaller businesses just don’t have the overhead to do like Target or EE.

The more small stores we lose, the worse it will be in the long run imo.

Looks like the spring Target toy sale is next week if the flyer below is right. The main problem this year is that Target hasn't been entering many toy lines into their systems for pre-orders for a while now, so online there isn't much new to go for.
Thanks for the heads up, hopefully i can pick up some of the x-men retro wave as i've been holding out for a sale to get them

on the more general topic of tough times for smaller toy/figure/collecticle businesses, definitely agree. from the consumer standpoint there is little FOMO right now at least at msrp so everyone can afford to sit back and wait on sales. $20 was definitely the sweet spot for the line, alas i am not sure how they could ever get back to that

hasbro needs to provide more of an incentive for collectors to run out and get those figures now (maybe a limited time promotion?) I don't know what would work, but that's really hasbro's problem, hopefully they figure it out quickly enough to help some of these retailers stay in business.

I would love to know if anyone has seen any of the most recent comic-based Legends waves (like the Puff Adder or Ch'od waves) at a brick-and-mortar Target. Aside from exclusives, the only recent waves to go up online is the recent MCU Guardians wave, I believe.

No one has reported seeing either of those waves at regular retail in the US.

My Target just did a reset with no space for Legends I have a feeling they’ll skip a wave or two till the next reset. The only positive is that all remaining Disney + wave figures and Black Panther have finally hit 70% off for me .

I always just pick up 3 of whatever 35 dollar SHF figures they got for those sales.

This happened this time last year before Thor 4 - and all the waves came to Target. They simply don't know when the new product is arriving and probably have a reset planned for GOTGv3 and Spider-Verse, and since they already clearanced out all the other MLs, and are carrying X-Retro online only, they have nothing to put on pegs - so they remove the labels.

Got my order from RedCap, very happy. They sent me regular storm shadow instead of the movie storm shadow I ordered, but that is obviously a win.

I got my Redcap order, too. Haven't opened everything yet, but it all seems as it should be. Would buy again.

Got my order from RedCap. Everything looks great. I forgot I opted to remove BAF parts for some figures for the discount, but it kinda slipped my mind. Then I opened the shipper to find figures in packages with BAF parts missing, and that was a little jarring! I guess I'm used to the way Dorkside used to offer the same thing, just sending the loose figure in a zip bag. This way works too.

I haven't figured out how to navigate their site yet though. I try to search "marvel legends" and the results are slim, but when I come back to this thread and click the link, it includes way more. Anyway, I do hope this isn't my last transaction with them.

Edit: OK, I guess I figured it out. I have to click "Online Shop" to get to their figure selection, and the menu winds up being out of view unless I scroll down.

Thanks for the heads up! Ordered Kraglin, Drax, and Adam Warlock from the GotG wave. Mantis is unfortunately sold out, and the rest are MIA. Threw an extra Yondu in there to hit the $100 limit.
