Watto's Junk Yard / Re: '67 Shelby Cobra found after 45 years
« on: June 6, 2015, 07:43 AM »
This story just gets more and more interesting.  When we started down this path I had some measure of sympathy for the current owner, and the possibility that he might have been one of a string of owners of this car who didn't know that it was stolen.  But now that it's clear that the vehicle has stolen plated any sense of sympathy for this guy just flew out the window, and the stolen plates make it seem that much more likely that he knew the car had been stolen.

In related news, check this out.  It's the story of a Corvette that was stolen in 1972 and just got recovered.  The parallels between this story and the Shelby are kind of remarkable, although I think the Shelby Cobra is a much, much cooler car.

Check out this USA Today video.  REBELS series Director Dave Filoni and voice actress Ashley Eckstein talk about Ahsoka Tano, her impact on the Star Wars universe and her story arc as it moves toward REBELS season 2.

Got mine in the mail yesterday.  Many thanks, Paul!  I really appreciate the help on this and the Droid Factory astromechs!!!

The Wights (aka Army of the Dead) seem very much like they're mindless and under the control of the While Walkers.  But I get the sense that the White Walkers are very much aware and in control of what they're doing.

So was that giant Wun Wun?  You had to love the line he said to Dolorous Ed!  And those were definitely some of the fastest zombies I've seen since Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead.  Is it me, or does the Night's King look like an icy Darth Maul?

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.
