I've been buying these for 15 years. Can't believe the prices for these things now - mostly because of this Madden series rubbish, and now with the NBA series becoming a Walmart exclusive. Being a UK'er, with no retail access, I'm looking at upwards of £30 ($38), a figure these days.

Mack is my most wanted guy but don't they only do two waves of these a season? So we're done until next year? Thankfully he's got 6 years left on his deal. I'd be shocked if he wasn't in the first wave of next year's figures. Isn't Marshall the last guy to get a Bears figure? It's been a long time.
I am a Boston sports fan so really digging the Mookie and JD. Stopped to look for them in my WalMart yesterday. They had some of the MLB The Show 19 figures out but only Baez and Lindor. Very nice figures in-person but just need my guys.
I was out of figure collecting for a long while during the height of the McFarlane stuff but had a buddy who collected several of the McFarlane lines. Had gotten sporadic ones that I liked, not just from my primary teams, over the years.
Always keeping an eye on folks from my teams, or if I find an oddball one cheap enough, I just managed to score a damaged package grey jersey variant Red Sox Victor Martinez for like $6.50 online the other day. With how bad the packaging was messed up, I popped him open. There are no pegs to make him stand up and the way some of the dirt is stuck to his cleat makes me think he was supposed to be stuck to the piece but was broken off when I opened him. Going to have to see if I can figure out how to safely and discretely secure him to the piece.
Been waffling on getting the Mookie Betts and JD Martinez but have not been able to pull the trigger with all the other stuff I've been buying, dropping another $50 on these. Went in a Target today on a hunt for other stuff and saw a couple MLB on a clearance rack. The three they had were Lindor and the two Red Sox! Both marked to $12.48! Was super happy I waited.
