Oddly enough I ran across the online exclusive wave of Droid Factory figures today at a TRU outlet store.  It's the same wave that was offered by Amazon, but it's still a little odd to see these in stores at all.

The name really could evoke a range of images. Like?

Check out more from the Vanity Fair article including a look at Andy Serkis in mo-cap gear portraying his newly named character Supreme Leader Snoke.

Looks pretty good.  I think it was more a matter of WHEN rather than IF any TFA product was going to leak via the usual Asian eBay sellers.  Still, knowing how plentiful figures can be in a movie year, I'm certainly not paying a premium for figures that will be everywhere in 3 or 4 months.

I've seen a couple of the Stormtroopers in the wild on one occasion, but that's it for this wave at brick & mortar retail.  However it was very encouraging to see that Target was pricing these at $9.99 each, and not the ridiculous way that TRU is currently pricing their figures.

Joss Whedon keeps on talking about Avengers - Age of Ultron, alternate endings, plot points as well as disagreements with the studio.

Personally I'm a little disappointed that Whedon wasn't able to get the grey Hulk into the fight sequence with the Hulkbuster.

$230 for that case?  It's novel that these cancelled figures are seeing the light of day, but they aren't $230 novel.

True, a store in the UK is selling them for £8 each.

At that price it appears to be a little more manageable.  With current exchange rates one British Pound costs $1.55.  So right there your cost per figure is $12.40 ish.  You may wind up incurring some exchange rate fees.  I don't know if there would be any additional taxes, and then shipping costs.

Actually it's Queen Apalaina from ROTS.  Queen Jamilla was in AOTC. That Queen job on Naboo sure has a hell of a lot of turnover.

Agreed on the point that this was more about Theon.  That actually started when he referred to himself as Theon of House Greyjoy earlier in the episode when he was giving Sansa away at the wedding.  He's slowly starting to regain his sense of self.  But where things go from here is beyond me since things have diverged so much from the books.

The end of the episode was really upsetting.  The show has always been a little rough at times, but this got to me.  Especially since the past several episodes have been building up Sansa Stark as Littlefingers protégé, and she isn't a silly girl anymore.  But I don't think anyone was prepared for just how depraved Ramsey Bolton can truly be.

A very solid way to end season 2.  In fact up until last week I thought that Jaiying had somewhat benevolent intentions.  At least until she killed Gonzalez!  I got the sense that Rayna was able to redeem herself.  And personally?  I'm not completely certain that she's dead.  All in all I think this episode arc has done a lot to develop the Inhumans in the MCU in the leadup to their movie.  I'm just curious if Skye will end up crossing over into that project.

The fight for the control of the Illiad was some pretty good stuff.  Multiple Girl was pretty badass, but it was cool to see that there was a way to take out all of the copies by neutralizing the prime Multiple girl.  And the fight for the Kree artifact between Mac, Coulson, Fitz and Gordon?  That was pretty awesome.  But when Mac lopped off Coulson's arm?  That was definitely shocking, but it was also a great bookend.  After all, the season began with Lucy Lawless's character touching a Diviner and cutting off her own arm in an attempt to survive.  She didn't, but Mac's actions were so decisive that he wound up saving Coulson's life.

The Ward/Agent 33 arc came to a fitting end.  33 was clearly damaged and beyond any sort of salvation.  And Ward is just all sorts of messed up.  I was glad to see Bobbie beat the hell out of both of them... at least until Ward broke her leg.  The fact that Bobbie would also sacrifice herself rather than letting Hunter get shot really showed some real heart for her character.  I thought Bobbie was a little one dimensional at the beginning of the season, and Hunter was too.  But they really seem to have developed into good characters for the show.

The last few things in the episode left you wondering where things are going.  May seems to have turned a corner.  I think she's finally come to terms with what happened in Bahrain.  And I get the sense that she may be on the verge of rekindling her marriage.  Coulson?  I think he may wind up with a Deathlok type of arm.  Ward as the new leader of HYDRA?  Seriously?  I wonder where that may go.  But the biggest shock of all had to be Simmons being sucked into the Kree artifact.  That was an even bigger WHOA moment than what happened to Coulson.  It certainly left me wondering if Simmons will actually become Captain Marvel.

Just who is Daniel Craig playing in THE FORCE AWAKENS?
