I saw photos not long ago of the Sandman as the next 8 inch Signature Series action figure. The photos showed him with his packaging, but I have never seen the figure since this was discussed. Spiderman 3 has done very well at the box office, but it took a critical hit for the story and characters. Any chance this influenced Hasbro to pull back on the release of this character?

Nope, it has made it to the wild. A pal of mine has found it in New York.

hasn't kept the figure from hitting the shelves :)

I keed, I keed ;)

I think the problem is that Target is overflowing with Cyclopses? and won't stock the new figure till shelf space is made.

They sure are being stubborn about reducing that one.

I know, I've got at least 3 customs planned for that guy once they cut the price.
