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.

If you look at the highlighted letters, and the comments on you'll see some guesses on what we'll get.


Tusken Raider
Boba Fett
Ponda Baba

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.

Just picked up a Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle mini polybag at Target yesterday.  Probably not news to hardcore Lego fans, but this was the first time I had seen it or heard of it.

Can 7-9 year olds play Rock Band / Guitar Hero?  I've played those a few times and they seem pretty fun.

Yeah, the kids are always asking me for the first person shooter games with a mature rating.  Not going to happen with 7-9 year olds.

I'll have to check out Rocket League.

A bunch of us were just talking about the Nissan Rogue - Rogue One edition that is coming out soon.  Although not nearly as cool as the ones you posted with the blasters for use in heavy traffic.

Yeah, the kids have that one already.

I guess I should have asked if there are any newish games that have come out in the past six months or are coming out in the next few weeks that people would recommend for that age range.

The last new game we picked up was TFA Lego which for some reason they really never got in to as much as some of the Avengers Lego game.

Any suggestions on an Xbox One game to get for kids ages 7-10?

Now in stock for $49 through a reseller.   ::)

I'm not sure why Wal-Mart does this whole reseller thing.  It makes their site look like some giant Craigslist garage sale smashed together with their store inventory.  I think it negatively impacts their brand by allowing this crap.

So this is only available in Italy?  Or should this be totally discounted because its on JTA?

Finally got around to opening my figures this weekend.  Totally awesome, and it makes me kind of sad that this sort of quality can't make it in to the SW line.  Sure they're like $22 a figure, but holy hell are these sweet.  I'd love to see a step up from the WM TBS line where they make some core characters from each of the new movies with this level of quality.

My only gripe is with the skeletons.  I had a really hard time posing them and getting the ankle joints to bend right.  But the Spartan and Amazon warriors, and Medusa were so, so sweet.  That articulated snake tail on Medusa was a thing of beauty.

Mine was delivered last week without any issues.

Saw those pre-packaged pallet drop / shipper things at a couple of Targets this weekend.  Sucks that its all Wave 1 repacks to further clog the pegs, along with more masks, lightsabers, etc.  As well as old (pre Rogue One) 6" figures. 

I sure hope there is a lot of foot traffic on Black Friday that clears out all that old stock.
