Reading Game of Thrones right now.  Surprised to find how closely the series followed the least so far.

Ditto, although I haven't watch the HBO series yet. I'm not a big fantasy reader (really only LOTR), but I'm enjoying it very much so far.  It's not a tough read per se, but the amount of characters to keep track of is mindblowing.

I have the first four books and will buy the fifth when it's released in paperback.  B&N had them on sale right before Christmas buy 2 get 1 free and with a coupon I had, I got the first three (they didn't have the forth) for something like $19 total.

If you're not a subscriber, you can buy single figures on the day of sale.  You'll have to pay slightly more and deal with Mattycollector's **** website, though.

Lego LOTR and Hobbit

Totally Awesome

Damn right.  My guess is these will sell just a teensy bit better than the Prince of Persia ones did.

In addition to all the sets coming, you just know they'll be doing a video game too.  I love playing those games.

Thanks for the good deal on some Kubes.

Fast shipping, well packaged, etc, etc...

The SW Advent Calendar was on sale at TRU for $30 (may still be).  Even then, I couldn't bring myself to buy it.  It's a cool concept and all, but seems way overpriced.

That seems to be the MO with Lego recently, especially on their licensed themes.  I saw the new Superhero sets at TRU and the 78 piece Batman / Catwoman motorcycle set was $18.  Granted, that probably includes TRU's markup since I think they're the only store getting those right now, but still.

Almost finished (on the last novella in the book, should be finished tonight):

Up next:

Reading snippets here and there:


At this point, all I'm interested in owning from this set are Cover Girl and Big Boa, and we haven't even seen them yet.

Those two are really going to have to blow me away to even consider buying a subscription and even then, I doubt I will.  Just too much junk, especially at $20 a pop.

Who in the blue **** is TNT?

Carded pics of Lifeline and Zombie Viper

Lifeline is a must for me.  Still debating on the Zombie Viper.  It looks cool and all, but I don't really need it.

I'm still debating. If I do subscribe, I have to buy the membership first.  I want Footloose, so that works.  I still need a Grunt figure and although I would much rather prefer a green one, the tan one works.  Topside is ok, I guess.  He came out when I started to get out of Joes when I was younger, so I have no real attachment to him.  At least he looks like his RAH figure and that's one of the big keys on which figures I decide to buy.

With Jinx, I want her red hooded look from RAH and what she wore in the movie while hooking up with Don Johnson.  Other than her, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, I really have no love for the ninjas, so Slice isn't grabbing me.  Iron Klaw, while cool looking, is from a bad time in Joe lore with the whole Extreme! ****.  I get the nostaliga with the foreign figures, so Quarrel is worth it to have, even though she is really plain looking.  I have no desire for neon green BAT, but at least it's an army builder that I can hide behind the other BATs I have.

I think the two figures that will sway me into buying are Cover Girl and Big Boa.  Depending on what they look like (especially Cover Girl) will decide if I'm all in or not.

I don't give a **** what the card looks like, Airtight looks like a perfect 30th anniversary representation of his RAH figure and that makes me happy.

This wave is filled with winners - Airtight, Sci-Fi, Law & Order, Tele Viper.  Good stuff.

New Theme - Dino

My son is going to love these.  He's a huge dinosaur fan.

That looked like a pretty major accident occurred (cars flipped over, etc.), I imagine some of the occupants died in the crash and if they didn't, they died from their injuries when no helped arrived.

And don't you need to be bit by a walker to become a zombie?  Dying from natural causes or an accident injury won't make you a walking dead.
