Wow, that's a hell of a bomb.

How does it compare with "Howard the Duck"?

Does anyone use the web site It tracks prices on Amazon. Just put in the item you want and it will send you alerts when the item goes below your selected price. It will also show a line graph of price changes.

I just used it for H&R Block Deluxe tax software. It is currently at $27.36.

I use this for Lego sets.  It worked wonders on being able to get sets 30% off for about 18 months.  The past six months though have been different.  Amazon hasn't had good markdowns on Lego.

Still a great tool for getting deals though.

I just deleted this game from my phone the other day.  What a piece of crap.  Its so unstable.  I swear the thing crashed during 75% of the attacks I did, leaving me with no winnings and all my troops are gone.  Very weak.

I wonder with JJ Abrams leading this film if we'll even see much previewed or pre-released merchandise like we've seen in the past from a Lucas led company.

Is there any hint of a Wave 8 in this line?

Saw it yesterday.  I thought it was just meh.  Not bad, but okay.

Too much battle and not enough plot, which I think was the danger of making this book in to three movies.

I agree with the previous comments that LOTR was far superior.  I've watch all of the LOTR movies several times afterwards.

This was entertaining, but I'm not sure I'll ever seek out The Five Armies to watch again.

Clearing out the rest of my unopened Galactic Heroes.  All are near mint carded/boxed.  Let me know if anyone here is interested, otherwise I'll be dumping a lot of these with Toys for Tots at noon on Friday.  We can work out a volume deal if you're interested.

Gone to Toys for Tots.

New Mad Max: Fury Road - Official Theatrical Teaser Trailer

I really, really liked the first three Mad Max movies.  I'm pumped that there is a fourth.  I know they've been trying for 25 years or so to make this. 

I like the new Max, and I think Charlize Theron could be awesome in this movie too.

Has anyone seen the Lego Advent calendars in stock and go on sale lately? 

It seems starting last year there was far less stock of all of the advent calendars.  I didn't find a single one marked down last year, and haven't seen one in stores in weeks.

I've always tried to pick up this year's version on sale to give to the kids the following year, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen again this year.

I think you mean Monica Belluci, she's topping 50 but she is hot as all hell.
I never get tired of watching her in a movie.

You're right on both points.  My bad. 

She is hot as hell, but you don't see too many "old" Bond women.

Looks like the young Bond woman is Lea Seydoux

You left of Morena Baccarin as well.  I wonder what her role is going to be.  Seems a little old to be the main Bond girl, although I guess they had Halle Berry as a Bond girl when she was in her late thirties...

Anybody know if Amazon or others are going to have some sweet Lego deals this holiday season?  I think last year at this time i was able to get most of the logo sets for 30% off.

Finally cracked my BMF open yesterday.  The kids are getting big enough, and with Star Wars Rebels are interested enough to warrant opening this puppy.

Its awesome!

I did have to get out the glue stick to apply the stickers as the sticker sheet had completely dried up.

My one complaint is that the landing gear are *always* falling off.  It would be fine if I played with it, but its not solid enough for 5-7 year olds moving it around on the carpet.  Has anyone figured out a way to keep those landing gear in place better?
