Definitely one of the best characters IMO.

I can't say they're overpriced given the company's size making them.  I just can't afford them at this point.  I WANT to afford them, and if they got the price under $100 for that walker/tank, I'd probably cave on one.  Not both, but one I think would be doable.

They're basically a transformer which is a complex toy when you break it down, so that's what makes me think the price is probably fair enough, I just think it'll hurt sales of the bigger stuff for them.

The 1/16 RC tanks I buy are complex, but they're made by Chinese companies, they're cranked out with quality issues galore (and unfinished which is huge in saving $, and something THESE toys have as a major cost I think), and so drawing comparisons I figure this is probably fair but I just can't justify it personally.   :-\

Under $100 and I'd have ordered that thing though.  It's beyond cool.  It crosses to Star Wars very well (something I feel necessary to buy something outside of Star Wars), and it looks just sooooooo badass and hyper detailed.

I ordered the figure 2-pack with the statue...  The vehicles kill me as I really want the walker/tank thing, but I just can't jump on the price. :(  I want it though, and if things were different for me I'd buy it.

Yeah I love the concept...  I wonder what "eras" they may look into?

Or if they'll try complimentary stuff for other toy lines at some point? 

Love their stuff, it's really high quality looking.

BTW, tell me that tail on the Medusa/Gorgon character doesn't remind you of the articulation style to the VOTC Chewie's torso?  That's still some innovative work I marvel at when I look at that Chewbacca figure.

K-Mart Scanner Techs down to $10 a set till I think the 19th but can't recall the date now.  Pretty good price on two army builders.

Nah I haven't seen her...  She's on the road one way, I'm on the road the other, so we're not crossing paths for a bit I think.  She said she'd bring them when we're both in the same spot which should be within a month or so since there's inventories going on I'll get stuck helping her with.  >:(

I vaguely remembered the sister getting shipped off when she got brought up, but totally forgot he had a brother.  It'd been a while since either came up I guess.

I'd not realized that kid sitting next to Tyrion was another nephew...  Probably just his lack of dialogue but the kid seemed almost normal.

Hah.  Looks like this suit thing Daniel Tosh put on, on his show one episode.  Creepy.  Batman helped him get into it.  The whole bit was weird.

A new figure is up for pre-order now.

It's the Argurts Infantry:

Awesome looking figure...

That's the mini-gun Hasbro should've put out with the Clones too.  :D

Pre-ordered the Lurker...  Realized I only had ordered the Warrior.

I so want USCM's and the Power Suit...  They could do so well with those.

She's the heir in the sense that her father (right?) was the mad king, but that was a popular uprising was it not?  So isn't there some equal POV that Robert's bastard is the rightful heir here?

I'd say he and Stannis hold more ground than Khalisi in that regard...  Of course, I lean to what you say though, Ed.  I prefer Khalisi at this point because she's not insane, seems like a good leader, etc.  But in that world her family was kicked out by everyone, more or less.

I love this show. :)

In the breakdown of the episode they really did want people to feel something for Joffrey, but for me it was purely good riddance...  He was a monster, and horrific.  His mother's one of the few equally horrible people, to me.  Kid or no...  I felt no sympathy.

I feel sympathy for the actor...  Poor kid gets ragged on by people he meets, and that sucks.  I sometimes just don't get fandom.

I don't know if I should vomit or be turned on...  or a little of both.

I've never paid more than $3400 for a car, so....  yeah...  no.

The ultimate wall decoration though.

I'm in the "Joffrey was a POS, purely evil character" camp...

He's not like Jamie who has some redeeming qualities...  Most seem more complex, but for me, Joffrey = Caligula, from the in-breeding to the sadistic nature, to the tantrums and quick temper.

There are worse though...  That's kind of what always comes up in TWD too, that there is always someone worse.

But watching Joffrey croak was pretty damn fun, I have to admit.

Long list of suspects too...  Tyrion's about the only one I don't think would've done it, ironically.

This certainly changes things...  I've not read the books so I don't know exactly who the Lannisters would attempt to replace Joffrey with then...  I know all the people who could make claims, and I'm probably forgetting a few of them even, but who would the Lannisters try to put there?  The marriage isn't really official, so it's a dilemma for them.  Cersie would probably be the most likely to take the throne for now?

It's nice to hear it stated that basically the Starks aren't out of things, by the way.  That there is the thought people would rally to even a young Stark being alive if they knew.  It's felt like, to someone who hasn't read the books anyway, that they're pretty much on the fringe of the game at this point.
