Picked up a few loose old TCW animated figures today at a local comic convention for some custom fodder...Yularen, Cadet Echo, Wolfpack clone. 3 for $10.  ;D

Picked up a loose Shae Vizsla without the alternate helmet-less head for $10 at a local comic convention today. Psyched, never saw this figure in the wild...

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)

Lol, he was a character from Season 5 of the Clone Wars. Hung out with Anakin some. Think he is mentioned in the Princess Leia book too. Bad ass extremist. Like the John Brown of the Rebellion.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors

My local comic shop has one of those for sale and while I always found it curious, I never considered buying one because it seemed like a cheap knockoff, not a proper Hasbro release. I would for sure be interested in some official play sets though.

Forest Whitaker is playing SAW GERRERA.  :D

Thank you, Clone Wars synergy!

That looks like some really nice stuff. Congrats Paul, that must be an exciting project. Good luck!

I found Rey 4.0 at a local specialty toy shop. I bought her just to compare more closely to the previous versions. Will try to post a report later.

OMFG, that was amazing, and the last 10 minutes were so ******* kick-ass.

I hope that little girl from Bear Island made it out ok.

Don't mess with Sansa.

Please and thank you.  ;D

I saw some recent prototype pics of some of the other characters and they looked amazing. Can't wait for these guys!

On the topic of sales, Gamestop finally dropped the price on the 6" Clone Trooper to $9.97 so I picked up the last one I could find in my area. Might be worth checking their website to see if there are any left near you...

The Bullpen / Re: Marvel Universe

Think this is the right thread?

I finally found NorthStar today at Gamestop unexpectedly. I figured he had to be out somewhere, I see them all over eBay.

Stoked to have most of Alpha Flight now. Shaman I can live without. Sasquatch in this scale seems like a glaring omission to me though.

It is probably crazy to think you'll find them at retail at this point (in the thick of Marvel summer already), but Entertainment Earth and other online shops are expecting more cases (finally) in June/July.

Sounds like that new lightsaber Rey variant that popped up over the weekend might be in the Wave 4 reship cases, so that might be one more bit of a reason to just pre-order the case and be done with it.

That one's a tough sell to me. If I have the first 3 Reys, I don't see anything unique about this one to justify buying it. The lightsaber is apparently exactly the same as the one in the K-Mart exclusive, and the Rey figure and BB-8 are the same as one of the previous 2 iterations.

I guess if you're keeping in the package it is more appealing but this is one of the few lines I actually open. So I think I can skip this one.

I knew that big, ugly ****** was still alive!

TV once again adheres to its own unique law of physics, if a tree dies in the forest, but is not explicitly show dying onscreen, then that tree will eventually be brought back to life.

At this rate it's only a matter of time before Stannis shows up again...

I was expecting a lot more from an Ian McShane GoT cameo, but I guess we will take what we can get. I assume they were still hanging out around the Vale? Were the guys that slaughtered them Dondarrion's (sic) men or just some other band of Brothers?

Bear Island looked pretty cool, but geez...62 men? The army building is not going so well. Maybe a quick raven to Littlefinger will help?

Arya  :-\
