My Moon Knight & Nova showed up from Amazon today. In a box and in excellent condition too, thank you Amazon!

My firestar showed up in a bubble mailer last week, but surprisingly the card was still minty.

My Nova showed up today, but I must have opened on the wrong side of the box with my pocket knife, because I put a cut mark across the back of the otherwise flawless card! I was so annoyed! Moon Knight just shipped. Gonna order a second set of these to open (though I guess I already have my Nova opener).

My Nova arrived from Amazon today in. Huge box with a ton of air bubbles. Somehow, it has a completely crushed bubble. It obviously happened before shipping.

I ordered the Sentinel directly from Hasbro Pulse and it's still saying estimated shipping date is January 2023. I think I'll cancel and order from BBTS instead. Same price in the end.

So, for you guys collecting this line, how are you displaying them? Keeping them MOC? Or "just standing there" on the shelf? I'm curious to see folks who are using other 1:18th-scale accessories like furniture, tables, and stuff like that in their displays/dioramas.

I keep resisting this line, but honestly I think this scale is our best bet for some kind of HasLab Classic Comic-styled Quinjet. And that would definitely break my resolve.

I open mine but have not allocated a space for them yet. I also keep some duplicates MOC which are boxed up for now while I do some rearranging in my toy room. I am enjoying this line a great deal. Maybe more so than the 6” ML. I would love a compatible DC line but the SP stuff is mostly modern and a different scale.

Mine all show up at work. I open them there and mess with them on my desk for a few weeks until I take them home where they get bagged and boxed awaiting their display space eventually.

Somehow, Brown Costume Wolvie hasnt made it home yet, just love having that figure on my desk - unpainted boots and all!

For now, mine are all on card hanging on my wall. My baby niece thinks my room looks like a toy store. When I started buying this line, I also started looking for a new place to live, so I told myself that opening these figures would be my reward for when I get a new place.

Well, they're all still unopened 2 years later, if that tells you anything about my circumstances and the housing market in my area. It certainly takes some willpower not to open these up when I've had a shitty day or when I'm feeling discouraged, but I'm gonna keep holding on to the hope that all of these figures will be out on display on a shelf in my new house one day.

I mostly collect these to keep MOC, but I've gotten a few doubles of my favorites to open and a few others on clearance that I opened. I love the look of them carded, but they are a lot more fun in hand than I would have thought. I really don't need tons of detail and articulation to be happy with a toy.

When I was collecting the previous Marvel Universe line in this scale(-ish), I had set up a pretty nice Avengers Mansion display on one of my shelves. I had figured someone else might do something similar with this line.

I open these and play with them. Don't really display them unless it's a temporary set-up. They essentially live in a bag. Which is fine. I like the aspect of just being able to throw these around and let them live in a pile.

Can you do a pic of how big the sentinel looks next to a standard fig.
