Speaking of things I haven't seen... the Jabba.  I haven't been looking for one thanks to the SDCC version, but I haven't seen one in the wild.

Wow that's one hell of a toy run!

Indeed.  I flew all the way out there to hit up about four Targets, and to see my wife and hike up Mount Monodnack.

Every Target has shelf tags for the thing, but none of them have it in the backroom.

I've been to so many places looking for them it's disgusting, both in Chicago and in New Hampshire.  I haven't seen one at retail yet and have been looking for weeks.

So I ordered on from Amazon and got it yesterday actually, and now I'm done looking.  The extra couple of dollars was well worth it to me.

I'd been watching that but it had been out of stock for over a week... I figure with the free shipping on Prime it's not that big a difference, and I'm just happy to be done looking for one.

The Speeder Bike has dropped to $42.99 (at least for now) on Amazon.  If you have Prime, it's a pretty good deal.

I've got shipping notices on Freddy, Jason, Pinhead, and Michael Meyers. 

Also the rest of the Goonies are supposed to be here Monday. 

Those are the ones I have been most excited about.

Lastly, they sent me a fancy certificate showing that I'd pre-ordered the egg chamber.

To be fair, chestburster looks terrible.  I got series one, but will probably just get half of these.

To me, these toys aren't exactly supposed to look good.

That said, the Chestburster isn't the best, I'd agree.

I do love the Facehugger though.

I can't believe Purple Jesus could do such a thing.

Chris Davis banned 25 games

It's AMAZING how no athlete has ever ACTUALLY taken a performance enhancing drug.  Every single one of them just took Adderall and failed their drug test, regardless of what sport we're talking about.  Never mind that Davis went from an average hitter to a league leader in HR's between 2012 and 2013... he's just got ADHD.

Got this wave last night.  Sergeant Doallyn is why I still love this as a hobby.  Even though getting a never-before-made background character is a rarity these days, it was awesome to open that one up.  The Ree Yees is fantastic too.

I can't see the X-Wing - can someone toss in a red arrow where I'm supposed to look?  It could be anywhere.

Dammit, you beat me to it.

Good thing they put those red arrows in there so we could figure out what part is the Millennium Falcon and which part is just grass.

They need to keep this one when filming is over and put it in a museum somewhere.

"Can" being the operative term, there.  In order for an underage photo to violate federal law, it has to either depict abuse or a "sex act."  A pretty tame shower shot is neither. 

Since when?

I mean, sure, taking pictures of your toddler playing in the tub is one thing, but under age teenagers in the shower?  I'm pretty sure that would usually fit the definition for criminal possession of child pornography.

The news doesn't know what it's talking about.  Either that, or they're sensationalizing.  For the photos to constitute a federal crime they'd need to depict a lot worse than a selfie.

I've read that law enforcement has been pretty actively pursuing and charging teenagers who have been sexting each other for trafficking child pornography.  I'm pretty sure any nude of a minor is a serious offense.
