First look for the Fantastic 4 MM!

Great things come in mysterious miniature or pint sized packages, but which great thing will it be? It's all a mystery until you open one. Then the fun begins.

Checked Gamestop today and they said the warehouse is getting them (today or tomorrow, I forget) and should be in stores Friday or Monday.

Can't decide if I want these characters as minis or Pops. There aren't really enough differences to justify getting both. It will probably end up being a mixture, especially since the thought of a 10" Galactus with a mini Silver Surfer makes me smile. The possibilities for additional pieces (chrome Surfer and Doom, larger Galactus) on this line also make it a little difficult to pull the trigger.

The BoxLunch website has these listed as bobble heads. Anyone know if this is true? I know some older Marvel minis were bobbleheads, but I thought they had gotten away from that recently (e.g. Spiderman Far from Home, although that is an assumption on my part based on glams).

Oh, easy pass on these for me then. I really thought they were solid, they looked so much like the Ghostbusters ones in terms of style.

Still nothing locally for me. I guess sometime this week is the estimate but with how everything is backed up for all carriers I wouldn't be surprised for longer delays.

They have gotten pretty good with these sets at making them technically bobbleheads but not really bobbly.

Also I love that we are describing figures by how "bobbley" they are XD

In case the picture goes poof, this is for the regular wave:

Reed, Thing, Torch, and Sue are all 1/6
Surfer and Doom are 1/12
Super Skrull and Moloid are 1/24
Namor and Galactus are 1/36
Mole Man and stretched Reed are 1/72

I kinda figured the set of four would be 1/6s but it still hurts :(

I wonder what this will mean for the exclusives, which seem to replace figures that are no higher than 1/12. Have they ever done that before, with the same 1/72s and 1/36s across all case types? Surely they wouldn't make Mole Man, for example, 1/72 in common cases but something like 1/12 in exclusive cases, would they?!?

If the same pieces are rare everywhere, it will make it that much easier to get them, at least.

that is an awful ratio, sadly awful ratios are the norm these days. annoyed Super Skrull is 1/24 but I guess it could've been worse. seems so weird Moleman is 72 but the random moloid is 24 :-k

Anyone seen these in GS yet? Waiting semi-patiently for my PO to arrive. Also wondering if these will have a wide-release like Ghostbusters or smalled release like Spider-Man FFH.

Dang! I was really hoping that this set would be an all 1/12 ratio so that I could just buy a fresh case and not deal with the hunt.

Bought two at Gamestop today and got Thing and Super Skrull. Very pleased with that.

The Surfer, Doom, and Sue exclusives take the place of the regular versions in the GS case, so Surfer and Doom are 1/12 and Sue is 1/6. I'm going to assume the Target exclusives will probably be the same way.

I went to another GS that had a full box, grabbed just the top middle 2 and assumed they were the sweet spots. It was Human Torch and Sue Storm... so make sure you trust the GS that sells these if they are full. Chances are you might encounter a store that will mix them up. Didn't weigh these yet, will get to that later on.

Umm, the box posted earlier shows the open hand Reed as the 1/72, but you got two of them in the same case....

Yea I noticed that too, the box images are most likely a mix up error and the ones I got are the actual 1/6 Mr. Fantastic.

Great set, great bobbles, great detail. Def a misprint on box, can confirm layout is correct as well. Just need Namor and Moleman, and then waiting for exclusives.

It was a full case, but I didn't pull them. I got a call about some preorders coming in and just asked her to grab two from the case and put them aside for me.

Hot all the GameStop’s (7) in my area this morning. Bought the full box at the first location. It was jumbled and didn’t look anything like the pictures previously posted. After seven stores I ended up with 6 1/72’s. Five of them were the Mr F. and yes it’s the true 1/72 Mr F (Fist Clenched). All I wanted was a Super Skrull.

why couldn't it have at least been Ben or Johnny....the hunt for K'Lrt continues, though i'm probably already over in store purchases because damn do I hate 1/6 garbage.
