At least we had everyone in the same episode again.

I liked the melted zombies, and Glyn Rosita and Tara catching fish was a lighthearted distraction. But I could have done without Father Gabriel acting like a jackhole too. I don't get what they are trying to do with his character, and I really don't care. This dude is even more worthless in the apocalypse than Eugene.

I didn't get Dawn/Don's angle with Beth and the drug locker key either. The doctor notes she has an ulterior motive, but what? Does it even matter now?

Man, you have to be a real dope to trust ANYONE at this point too. Especially the friendly guy you have handcuffed. That was just silly.

I was at a comic convention over the weekend and saw a guy selling really nice custom knock-offs of this line. He had a whole series of V figures that fit in perfectly. He wanted way too much for them but it just reaffirmed what a great property this would be for them if the did it, IMHO.

I saw the Prison building set unexpectedly at TRU yesterday, looks really nice. I didn't have the cash to drop on one at the moment but am definitely thinking of going back soon.

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!

Saw an interesting listing over at Walmart's website for this Rebels two-pack:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Star-Wars-Rebels-Ezra-and-Rebels-Stormtrooper-Action-Figure-Battle-Pack/40138492

At first glance I thought these were just repacks of the 12" figures, but the item description clearly states 18". They have previously announced there would be a Rebels style Stormtrooper in this scale, so this makes sense. I just hope he ends up coming single carded too as I don't need another Ezra.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors

Interesting...when scanning the Big Retail sites for upcoming SW related Black Friday deals, I found a listing for the following:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Star-Wars-Black-Series-6-Deluxe-Assortment/37079580

At $129.77, I'm wondering if this is that six-pack thingamajig that showed up down in Mexico a few weeks back. Maybe a Black Friday surprise? (ala those Clone Wars 8 packs a few years back)

Although that's not really a good price at all considering they're $20 apiece. So maybe I'm wrong on that...anyone venture a guess?

edit: looks like that is marked down from the original price of $163...which is still over MSRP for 8 figures.

I completed the Rebels collection today with a minty Zeb/Stormtrooper 2-pack courtesy of TRU.  :) Luckily they had at least 7-8 to pick through so I had a good choice of paint apps. (Good thing too, some of these looked pretty hit or miss)

I hope we get something else before Christmas but I'm not holding my breath.

These are on sale this week at Walgreens for 25% off, so I picked one up at lunch for $15.

And another last night, sale ends this evening I believe.

Rumor has it Wave 6 has already popped up at Target... ;)

Cool, but relentless.

Was it Target or Walmart? RS says one and YF says the other (with a quick look by me anyway).

Yeah, I believe the 6" find was from Target, the Walmart bit was just some crappy Command set that noone cares about.  ;)

Bought a NYCC exclusive Jesus online yesterday. Had to have him.

On a side note I'm pretty upset with you McMetal. Can't believe you didn't mention this figure existed in this thread. I'm incapable of going elsewhere online to find anything out.  ;)

Here's some scoop: McF announced Abraham is coming in the next comic wave...they also teased a silhouette image of the other figures in the wave, looked like Carl and and not sure who else. Believe this was all via Facebook.

Just got my shipping notice for "Hong Kong Brawl" Gypsy Danger 2.0. Apparently his casemate Tacit Ronin is still on pre-order. Still haven't seen any new stuff in actual brick and mortar stores...

Thanks Pete! That definitely rings a bell now, glad I picked this up as it was not really on my radar previously.

My obsessive diligence paid off this morning when I arrived at TRU at opening time and found a full fresh case of Rebels figures! I picked up the last 4 I needed, so I am set with the single carded stuff now, except for maybe a couple of extra Stormtroopers to display.

I also picked up the Clone Wars Obi-wan...is this a straight up recard of a previous figure? I couldn't recall in the store.
