Luke turned out way better than I thought

Ugh, those elbow joints belong on Marvel/GI Joe knees.

But for those wondering, now we know how Yoda looks in a rebel starfighter flight suit?   :)

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

The landing gear/struts is so f'n yesteryear.

I was so excited in the build-up to TPM, but with these reveals, as much as I'm trying to lower my expectations, I can't help but get that same giddy feeling I had as a kid seeing commercials/previews announcing ESB was "coming soon to theater near you".

Beth and Daryl were getting too chummy. I think she bites it.

Tasha Yar screams cult to me. My guess is the Terminus group rounds up wandering walkers as food. Also explains why there aren't zombies and why the gates aren't securely closed or guarded.

Idej, are there dimensions out already?  8', you sure? 

Yuppers. 43.9m long. 95" using 1:18 scale.

To scale is around 8' long. :o

I can picture them marketing a 30" version.

Back down to $42 at Amazon.

Crazy price fluctuations this holiday season.

Lily's become a bad-ass. Hope she returns.

Tyrese, so far, is pitiful. Stayed away from the comics so I don't know how the 2 versions compare.

All the Gov's minions deserved to die. Mitch made a really good a-hole and whose death was really fist-pump and high-five inducing.

Little Lizzie isn't as "weak" as her kid sister claimed she was. Damn, center of the forehead. No hesitation.

Not so sure about no or little cognitive ability. During the barn slaughter, the zombies seemed to maneuver ok over fallen bodies.

A couple of episodes back, during the scenes of Carol murdering Ty's lady and dragging her body, did we see flashbacks of what actually happened or a peek into Rick's head as he imagined how the deed might have played out? Anyway, as she dragged the body, I noticed "something". But the scene was so quick I couldn't put a finger on it. (I dozed off on the second showing.) Then I saw a frame capture on the WD thread at the other site which shows what appears to be a second set of hands helping pull the body! My guess is Lizzie's younger sister.

Ty as a master, uh, hammerman, isn't working for me the way it's being depicted. In one scene it takes 2-3 blows to the head to take down one of the zombies.

That initial batch came and left real quick and I haven't seen a refresh since. If you see the foam role play battle-axe hanging on the pegs then you can bet the figures made an appearance already.

NECA's kicked ass on this line. Not into buying a scale other then the 3-3/4" otherwise I'd be all over these. I did get the predator hound 'cause that actually works well as a beast in my little Star Wars world.

Would love me some well-made Dr. Who figures in 3-3/4" 'cause... well, Jenna-Louise Coleman is smokin'.

The toys were shown at the London Toy Fair at the end of January. Here's someone's youtube vid of the various lines.

a few pics of the 3-3/4". http://www.doctorwhotoys.net/news.htm

The Dalek and Cyberman look worthy of being displayed next to Hasbro's SW. Not so the the humans. The face sculpts are decent but the rest of the body lack the "life" that Hasbro's able to inject in SW. They are about on par with Playmates 5" Star Trek.

Haven't read if these will hit brick-and-mortar in the US.

5 SB and 2 WS championships in the last 3 years, and not one of those lessen the sting of the loss. 

As for the outage...  Components wear out and fail. I'm sure they'll do their investigation, and if they conclude the breakdown happened because of shoddy work or maintenance wasn't kept up, then maybe someone will have to answer for it. Otherwise, shtuff happens.

Oh, yeah -- Wow, Beyonce's still hot.

Kinda like a komodo dragon's saliva. Gotta figure a decaying corpse will have all sorts of septic bacteria in its mouth. Could be that the non-fatal bite that eventually kills has nothing to do with the zombie pathogen.
