I saw the new sets at TRU as well. They looked cool, but were extremely pricey. The Gandalf v. Saruman set was $15 and Elrond Council was $35. I didn't catch the prices on the bigger sets. This line is so sooooo tempting.

I think he would have mentioned it if it was the rarer last wave of 2012.
Just to clear, it was old stuff. Not even any of the Light ups like Vader, Obi-wan and Qui-gon.
More of a Movie heroes, thing, but Big Lots! got 2012 movie heroes and 2013 Class I vehicles in. Prices are pretty unspectacular at $9 for the figures, $18 for the vehicle sets.
DIdn't they release in other countries already? Of course that doesn't mean anything anymore. Imagine a $100+ foreign exclusive.
The only question I had was when Tyreese was coming to relieve Sasha. Then he changes his mind and tells her to wait a little longer...where did he go? I thought this was Tyreese going to save Andrea, but I don't think they ever showed where he went, did they? Maybe it was irrelevant or maybe it will come up next season, but I thought that was odd. I also wonder if Tyreese or Sasha maybe burned the Woodbury Zombies instead of Milton - maybe Milton just let them out the gate. Would be an interesting turn to take.
A realistic version of Cody seems rather redundant. Wasn't he done in the TVC line, after all? Certainly, Hasbro could try to achieve some savings by offering that figure up again as a live-action Clone Wars offering. But doing so seems a little disingenuous.Not if it was the phase 1 version. It is more than just a different helmet.
Agreed. And on a similar note, Hasbro could offer both phase I and phase II armor Rex's. But if Hasbro is truly interested in bringing Clone Wars characters into the realm of realistic figures, there are certainly some more interesting choices than a character like Cody. Especially since we've seen at least a couple of realistic renditions of Cody since 2006.
It was okay. They played it a tad safe. The governor's villain luck holds out, folks panic instead of shooting back, I can accept that since they were shocked by his actions and not fighters. But it's a good thing his closest men are loyal even when there's no reason to be. Seriously, neither guy had any feelings for any of those people? They think a snapped Philip isn't gonna take his anger out on one of them at some point?
Andrea...taking on walkers with a knife...can't handle one sans knife? She was too intent on getting her other hand free, that's where I think she blundered.
Why stay in the prison? Why no Woodbury...they were asking that on Talking Dead...no one had a good answer. I'd imagine there's tons more supplies in Woodbury, and far more comforts.
OMG, McFarlane just confirmed on Talking Dead that we're getting an Andrea figure this year! (Maybe September?)
This was #1 on my list of the remaining TV characters to be made. Good times.
Some paint deco changes and apparently a larger pauldron. More details at the link.
