What really bugged me...Negan is a damned ballistics expert. "That's a home made bullet!" Even if I accept he knows that much,....why would he assume so much as to even look at the casing? More likely he'd think they had ammo stashed somewhere. The simplest answer would be think Rosita found a bullet or hid a bullet.

Yeah, this kind of bugs.  They find guns, medicine, and all sorts of crap all the time.  Like someone couldn't have found a reloader kit, some black powder, and melted some fishing sinkers for a bullet.  It doesn't need to mean that they've got some kind of professor capable of creating this all from scratch.

Wow.  If you can't appreciate John Glenn for the brave dude he was and his service to this country, regardless of someone's politics, you've got more than cynicism in your soul.

Solid episode last week. 

I like that they've added some intrigue with Thrawn and Kallus.  Are the plans that were stolen legit, or just bait in his larger plan to uncover spies within his own ranks?  Is Kallus really Fulcrum, or part of Trrawn's plan?

Agreed that their "would you pay $30 for Lando" question is too simplistic.  Do I want a Lando?  Yes.  Would I be willing to pay $30 across the board for Lando and other 6" figures?  Not sure.  The bar has been set at $20 and its going to be painful for that to jump significantly and me still buy every figure they make.

Woulda been nice to see some sort of mini-conjoint analysis where they could figure out price points, bases, accessories, soft goods, etc. and circle in on the price based on desired features.

Are you guys signed up for PULSE or something?  I didn't get an e-mail, but I'm not signed up for PULSE.  I have ordered dozens of times from HTS.com though.

"Godspeed, John Glenn.”   :'(

My wife and I were just talking about John Glenn and what an amazing ass kicker he was, and how people of successive generations (ours) can even begin to match up to a stud like him and some of his peers.

  • Fighter pilot in WWII and Korea
  • Test pilot
  • First American to orbit the earth
  • Took a ride on a Space Shuttle and spent nine days in space at age 77
  • Served as a Senator for 25 years

Any one of those is a big deal for anyone's legacy.  He did all five without breaking a sweat.

Who, under 50, would you even begin to compare to the likes of John Glenn?  You could probably pick a few business people like Elon Musk that have done some pretty cool things, but its hard to think of anyone even remotely in his league.

Cool.  I love the army of astromechs we've accumulated over the years.  Even if I've got no recollection of 80% of these from the movies, they make for fun filler material around other figures and in vehicle displays.

Emperor's Wrath Darth wasn't too hard to find after awhile, but I never saw a Prototype Boba Fett in stores.  I'm guessing this will be more like Darth - hard to find initially, but probably not too hard in another six months.

Got my 10 day pre-shipping notice from BBTS today for the Darth Revan wave.

I'm a novice with video games. 

We have an Xbox One and my son really wants Lego Indiana Jones. It appears its only compatible with Xbox 360.  What do you think the chances of them creating backward compatibility for this in the future?  Not sure if they've made any particular statements about all 360 games will eventually be backward compatible on Xbox One or not.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set

Yakface posted that this is now available on Walmart.com.  The price seems to be jumping around between $200 and $300.  When I last checked it was at $220 with free shipping.  Not bad.

A quick search shows this is on Target.com as well, but for the full MSRP of $300. 

Nothing on TRU.com and Amazon's seems to be only through the Amazon Marketplace.

I actually like this one a little bit.  I like it when its just The Ghost crew on some random mission, and it was nice to see Zeb have a role in an episode for a change.

I'm still hoping for a big sweeping story arc that wraps everything up at the end of the season.  I thought that is what Thrawn was going to be about, but so far we're going nowhere fast.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors
« on: December 1, 2016, 05:18 PM »
If you look at the highlighted letters, and the comments on YF.com you'll see some guesses on what we'll get.

TR-BF-PB-ST

Tusken Raider
Boba Fett
Ponda Baba
StormTrooper

Seems like some decent figures, although I'm not so sure about Walrus Man.  Are people really asking for this figure to be reissued?  Maybe he'll have a major role in Rogue One...

I actually didn't have as much of a problem with this week's episode.  It moved along at an okay pace.  Sure there was some "suspend disbelief" stuff, but that has been par for the course all along.

My only hope is that the payoff starts to come before too long.  Unless knowing the individual characters in these other camps is critical, there is probably a quicker way of getting to the likely step of banding together against The Saviors.  We already know The Hilltop knows of other groups.  All they would need is one of these other groups to connect the dots to make it happen.

But they do need to tighten things up and get back to the core characters like Michonne kicking ass, Eugene building a bomb factory, etc.

What is the price point?  Is it the $18.84 tag shown in one of the photos?   A little bit of a savings over buying them separate.
