A new figure is up for pre-order now.

It's the Argurts Infantry:

Awesome looking figure...

That's the mini-gun Hasbro should've put out with the Clones too.  :D

Pre-ordered the Lurker...  Realized I only had ordered the Warrior.

I so want USCM's and the Power Suit...  They could do so well with those.

She's the heir in the sense that her father (right?) was the mad king, but that was a popular uprising was it not?  So isn't there some equal POV that Robert's bastard is the rightful heir here?

I'd say he and Stannis hold more ground than Khalisi in that regard...  Of course, I lean to what you say though, Ed.  I prefer Khalisi at this point because she's not insane, seems like a good leader, etc.  But in that world her family was kicked out by everyone, more or less.

I love this show. :)

In the breakdown of the episode they really did want people to feel something for Joffrey, but for me it was purely good riddance...  He was a monster, and horrific.  His mother's one of the few equally horrible people, to me.  Kid or no...  I felt no sympathy.

I feel sympathy for the actor...  Poor kid gets ragged on by people he meets, and that sucks.  I sometimes just don't get fandom.

I don't know if I should vomit or be turned on...  or a little of both.

I've never paid more than $3400 for a car, so....  yeah...  no.

The ultimate wall decoration though.

I'm in the "Joffrey was a POS, purely evil character" camp...

He's not like Jamie who has some redeeming qualities...  Most seem more complex, but for me, Joffrey = Caligula, from the in-breeding to the sadistic nature, to the tantrums and quick temper.

There are worse though...  That's kind of what always comes up in TWD too, that there is always someone worse.

But watching Joffrey croak was pretty damn fun, I have to admit.

Long list of suspects too...  Tyrion's about the only one I don't think would've done it, ironically.

This certainly changes things...  I've not read the books so I don't know exactly who the Lannisters would attempt to replace Joffrey with then...  I know all the people who could make claims, and I'm probably forgetting a few of them even, but who would the Lannisters try to put there?  The marriage isn't really official, so it's a dilemma for them.  Cersie would probably be the most likely to take the throne for now?

It's nice to hear it stated that basically the Starks aren't out of things, by the way.  That there is the thought people would rally to even a young Stark being alive if they knew.  It's felt like, to someone who hasn't read the books anyway, that they're pretty much on the fringe of the game at this point.

Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit - Toy Line

I'd say all of it is worth picking up personally.  I think it was a high quality line that did poorly for really no reason other than The Hobbit/LOTR doesn't (or didn't) appeal to kids as much as adults...  I think the toy line's pretty outstanding though with few complaints.

I don't think much done differently would've saved it though, either.  It is what it is.

I picked up a couple figures at Steel City Con.  Upgrades and a well priced brown snake Yoda.  He was my prize for the weekend.

I'll hold out for 5Below.  I think these may keep turnin up and new cases may surface.  As fast as they're selling I wouldn't be shocked.  Guess I need to get a beret and sawed off shotgun for flint next time my brother does a Marauder order too. :) He's not as ultimate as the title suggests.

My brother wants night vipers and crimson guards...  Those don't seem to linger.  Budo does though.

Just curious but is this on clearance too?  If so, A) that's a shame, and B) where I can get 3 dozen of them for their clearance prices?  :D

11
These are on clearance...  $20 a pop?  I'll take that.

Pilot bits and pieces...  I'll try and make two normal height, and neck, pilots out of the two they decided to make midgets with no necks.  I picked two up tonight.  Not many left though, shockingly.  Only 2 sets when I left actually.  They didn't have many of those Jedi sets from last year either which surprised me given how they sat for a while it seemed.

I found some figs tonight for my bro but 5B's are getting picked over DAMN fast here.

I got a Kwinn, Flint, and some others.  Army builders are almost always gone immediately.  I'm looking though.

I was hoping to find Lady Jaye for myself, but that's not the wave coming in here I guess?

I got an Ultimate SS though, for my meager "I want ultimates of figures I dug as a kid" collection, and holy **** is this SS "ultimate" to the max.  I can't even tell what half his accessories even are, they're so tiny and weird looking.

Absolutely.  I really did not care for much of KotCS.

On the Star Wars topic, yeah, Lucas lost his **** around 1998 while we were going batty over cheap Star Wars toys at Hills stores, and he was getting told everything about TPM's production was great by Rick "I've got saggy balls in my mouth" McCallum.

We learned a lot about F&I war up here because it largely started and took place here...  We had an odd focus on that when I was young.  The Revolution, really practically skipped all combat and just focused on the documents, founding fathers, etc.

I never had a class on WWI, WWII, etc.  Seriously.  We got to the Civil War and that was usually where it ended.  Lot of focus on the Civil War though, not just the politics but combat, daily life, etc.  Both history teachers in my school were big into that and since I re-enacted at the time (signal flag kid) they used me heavily to bring crap in and talk about it.  I didn't even have to take the final.  :)

My gf's boys seemed to cover everything...  I helped both with WWI Trench dioramas which were their project for that era.  I should post the little dioramas we made in a weekend.  I guess that should be "we" made.  :-X

The boys picked it knowing I'd go giddy making crap for them.
