The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6 Inch Figures?
« on: February 11, 2013, 11:17 AM »
I gave up collecting 3.75" several years ago... my interest wained and it felt like a chore to collect them all.  I didn't have a place to display them so they just sat in tubes in my basement. 

These 6" figures intrigue me.  If its a small line with only a limited number of figures, I could keep up.  The pictures I've seen so far make the figures look pretty amazing.  I may jump into this line.  Especially if the figures actually retail for less than $20.

I'd seen images of Ward Zombie online, but wasn't sure if you'd be able to point him out in the show.  Didn't know he'd get his own solo moment like that.

Was he the one that stuck his head through the "fence" at Woodbury?  I thought it might have been him given the "solo" moment.

I enjoyed the show last night quite a bit.  The first segment was riveting.  I did think it was awfully convenient that Darryl was able to get his bow back so easily! I hope crazy-Rick comes around and starts this reported bromance with Tyresse.  Tyresse looks like he'd be a good character for the show/group. 

Having said all that (and I haven't read the graphic novels at all), I hope that the writers are able to turn some of the story back into struggling to survive against the Zombies... I'm less interested in a fued between Rick's group and the Govenah.  Maybe, I'm in the minority about this.

I've been catching bits and pieces of the Walking Dead marathon on AMC today. Getting pretty excited for the mid-season premiere.

Unrelated, I was at Barnes and Noble tonight and saw some of the walking dead Graphic Novels. I had no idea they were black and white only illustrations. I just assumed they were in color.

Just got back from a family vacation at Walt Disney World. Our family really enjoyed the new Star Tours.  We rode four times and got four different tours.

but I don't like the insertion of Radagast, the Elf-Witch, and the Necromancer. Those characters only merited fleeting references in the books. (Well, Radagast and the Necromancer anyway) To say nothing of whatever Evangeline Lilly is supposed to be doing there.

The Necromancer is an important part of the Lord of the Rings.  He's made in passing reference in the Hobbit for sure, but his inclusion in the movies will be the second link to the LOTR trilogy (aside from the One Ring).  The story of the necromancer is included in the appendices of the LOTR books as I recall.

I was happy to see Radagast fleshed out... not sure if I love how PJ actually fleshed him out though.   ;)

Interesting article on how JRR Tolkien revised the Hobbit through the years, tinkering with the story...

Wait... are they screening a non-3D 48FPS version someplace?  I thought all the 2D showings were 24FPS.
I'm in Ireland. Now, I'm also assuming I was seeing this in 48fps because it looked "off" to me. However, I never confirmed this.

Just got back from the movie. Rally enjoyed the story.  For the most part it was quite faithful to the book with even a fair amount of direct quotes. There were of course some deviations and one part that was very much counter-Tolkien, but still a fun story.

I did not care for the higher film speed. Definitely felt blurry at times during camera panning. Also, didn't care for one specific part of the Great Goblin, which I won't be too specific for any spoiler concerns.

I saw the movie in 2d but bought the 3d glasses because they were cool collectibles.

Long wait until part 2 next year.  >:(

I suspect it is ... right when the eagles show up after the get chased by the goblins and wargs

Unrelated, it looks like I'm going to be in Dublin the week that the Hobbit premieres. I was looking for local theaters and found that they have shows starting on Thursday afternoon. I'm going to buy tickets for an 8pm show. Really excited about this!
