Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Walking Dead
« on: December 17, 2014, 10:44 PM »
A petition?  Really?  I am not a fan of the way they did it, but if that many people care to complain about it then job well done for Kirkman and team.  Getting that massive of a response just shows they did the right thing in having a meaningful death.  They have to get rid of main characters from time to time to keep it exciting and fresh.  Would people rather have seen someone else go?  Rick? Carl? Tyreese? Michone? Daryl?  Carol?  Pick your poison people.

I actually would have preferred Tyreese or Sasha. Or Tara, or Rosita or Eugene even. I feel like those characters have sort of come to the end of their own personal journeys whereas Beth could have gone in a number of interesting directions post-Dawn. I kinda felt the same way about Andrea though too, so it's nothing new I guess.

Picked up 10" Rick Grimes Deluxe Action Figure at TRU this morning...very nicely done.

Cool find today...stumbled across the 20" Inquisitor figure at Target over lunch. I knew he was coming, along with Zeb at some point, but had never heard a peep about him showing up already. Getting a nice little collection of these guys going now, but they really need to make a similarly scaled Chopper and the gals.

Well, Tacit Ronin popped back up on TRU.com but now with a 1/7/2015 ship date...sigh. At least I was able to get the R WEB# so I can just called around rather than pound the pavement to find this guy.

In other news, 18" Cherno Alpha showed up yesterday and is freaking amazing. And I haven't even broken him out of the box yet!

For anyone interested, I saw a few of the new Tv Series 6 figures at Target last night...Rick and the Bungee Guts Walker. Happy hunting!

Interesting note: I never realized the 20" TIE Pilot was part of the animated Rebels line...I just assumed he was part of the OT stuff like Chewie and the Biker Scout. But after looking more closely last night I realized he had the "From the Animated Series!" tag on the front of the box like all the other animated figures. (The OT ones do not)

So I filled a nice little hole in my collection that I never even realized that I had, and for $15 on sale at Target to boot!

 ;D

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Recent Purchases
« on: December 13, 2014, 10:08 AM »
Classic toy karma, one post about not finding new 6" was all it took. A late night series of surgical Target strikes netted me a brand new TIE Pilot and Yoda.  ;D

Oddly, I found just those 2 figures and then at the next closest Target I found Obi-Wan and the Clone Sergeant. Weird coincedence, or maybe they are breaking up cases like with the 3&3/4" stuff?

By the time I got home I was literally too tired to open either one, but I can already tell I am going to need multiple TIE Pilots...that dude is bad-ass!

Managed to find both Yoda and the TIE pilot at a TRU two days ago. The store got in several cases. Someone nabbed all but one TIE pilots and left the rest. (And no, it wasn't me.  :P)

That's awesome, we haven't gotten a whiff of those here yet. I keep hoping Amazon will get them back in stock for a reasonable price but that doesn't seem likely.

I did receive a bunch of Clone Troopers in the mail this week I ordered off HTS and Amazon when they were running those cheap deals recently. That's another wave that never saw the light of day here.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens (SPOILERS)
« on: December 11, 2014, 09:56 PM »
Very cool way to reveal the character names.  I certainly appreciated it!  The article stated that the card numbering is actually done in a very deliberate way.

Personally, I'm thinking that Kylo Ren may be Adam Driver's character.

I agree...Kylo "The Graverobber" Ren.

Max von Sydow as Lobot?! That's crazy.

"Finn Calrissian" has a nice ring to it though!

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)

Considering the overall tenor of the show and the audience they seem to be aiming at, I tend to think they will just go with the obvious...Fulcrum = Bail. It's not exactly a burning question IMO though, I'd be more interested to get the backstory on the Inquisitor or Ezra's parents.

Well, seeing as how they only killed one of the 5 people I wanted to see get snuffed (Whitehall/Ward/Skye'sDad/Raina/Agent 33) I was a little bummed, but I get that they want to keep stringing those characters out for whatever reason.

Surprised Mac survived and Tripp did not. Killed off the wrong guy, IMHO, he will be missed.

Also curious what happened to Raina at the end there.

Finally found a Long Coat Governor at the 5th Walgreens on my list today. Also found they had all WD figures for $10 on sale this week - nice!

For anyone else that might care, the EE exclusive clear Invisible Man Universal Monsters ReAction figure is now in stock. I actually bought one off eBay cheaper than it would have been from EE, which was odd, but I'm not complaining. I just recently picked up the Glow in the Dark Creature from the Black Lagoon too so it will be nice to have a complete collection.

Have heard we may be getting Gremlins figures from these guys next year. Bring on Phoebe Cates!!

TRU abruptly canceled my pre-orders for Tacit Ronin and the 18" Cherno Alpha.  >:(


When I went back to their site to replace the pre-order, Tacit Ronin was no longer even listed. Even though I know for a fact he has shown up in stores already.  ???

Even weirder, 18" Cherno Alpha was listed as In Stock even though he has had 12/17 as the street date for awhile now. Anyway, I went ahead and ordered him and he is on his way. I am anticipating this will easily be one of my favorite toys of the year...cannot wait!

For anyone else who's been holding out (like me) the Prison Gate and Tower set is on sale for 30% off at TRU this week, along with the other 2 building sets as well. I made sure to let everyone know who might be inclined to give me a gift this year.  ;)


I also heard the MIA McFarlane Long Coat Governor figure is starting to show up at Walgreen's already. The hunt begins tomorrow...
