12" Figures / Re: Sidehow 12" X-Wing Luke

I hate to pile on but yeah, that price for Luke put him out of reach to me.  I was actually aiming to pick him up maybe, but that's really absurd.  1/6 is just too much at this point.  The weird thing is it doesn't seem to be for everything, but licensed stuff's definitely skyrocketing.  I can't believe Luke's more than a Stormtrooper though.  Is the suit that complex?

That makes sense for sure, for Starbucks at least.  McDs tho it is like having a bathroom attendant there haha.  You're Mcd's...  Don't worry about it. ;)

Wow, what's the point?  It prints a #...  Or at least all the McD's and BK's I've ever been in do, so why ask for a name ya know?  Seems like a really unnecessary step to me.  :-\

I still question the reality of the image regardless though.  It's the internet.  Like the fake tip receipts that make it onto Twitter and stuff...  It would be easy to fake it for attention.

If it were real, I'd just as likely say the fast food worker did it intentionally, making fun of the person saying, "Stephen, with a ph" to them.  It's not like it was a credit application, ya know?  I know my first reaction would be, "You're a moron, with an 'oron'", but maybe that's just my reaction, haha.

I'm excited to get the R5 from that wave, at some point.  But yeah, that's gonna be a drought and a half...

Depends on the part.  ABS is hard, poly-vinyl is pliable.  ABS makes up the torsos of most figures like that, but not the limbs.

12" Figures / Hot Toys 1/6 Stormtroopers... Good god.

Let the drooling and price complaints commence!

You can get a single trooper for a paltry $199.99.

You can get two troopers, with bonus Heavy Blaster Rifle & Mousedroid for $399.99.

Or you can get a limited release two trooper set for $399.99, with bonus Rifle Rack from the hangar control room.

While these look simply amazing, the price hurts.  $50 a month isn't too bad though, to own them, but plunking $400 down...  yeesh.

Yeah, I don't think I've been to a McDonald's that goes by name and not order number.

That makes me question the reality of it actually...  I think it's someone wanting to be a condescending peckerhead to fast food workers online.  I've never had them write my name on a receipt either.  Just "Order # ____" or whatever.  I got Order 66 one day.  :D  Felt like I was supposed to just attack someone in a bathrobe.  Trippy.

I liked the scene, but they never outright say that's what happened...  Like I say, I want to believe that's the mode of thinking.  Rick did it on purpose.  Rick's the smarter guy, etc.  But Rick's group doesn't ever discuss "Hey, we'll leave, leave these guys here as bait, and come back and trap the termites" either...  It's such a quick turn-around I tend to think that lends itself to the "Rick did it on purpose" theory, but again they don't outright say that's the plan...  Actually Rick talks about catching them at the school, no?

I'm still going with the idea Rick used Carl & Co. to lure in the Termites and corner them, regardless, but it's a topic I'd have liked to have seen brought up on TD or something...  wasn't a good group to bring it up with either though.  Only Garreth would know I suppose.  Slash was kind of a dickhole.

The secondary joke here is that someone wants their name spelled right on their waiting slip at a fast food restaurant.

May be just me, but you MUST have a PC flight stick to play this game.  Just a heads up.  You actually have it loaded to even load the game, which surprised me.  XW and TIE used to be usable with a mouse/keyboard if you were a daring soul, but not any longer I guess.

I just ordered a flight stick off Amazon for under $50 shipped free.  There are cheaper though.  I wanted something slightly above average though, as I plan to enjoy this a while.

I've downloaded both...  I'm ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of bubblegum.

I like that they included the manuals, which had "encrypted codes".  These things were glorious pieces of EU, as much as immersive gaming experiences.  I have the game SG's on my Star Wars reference book shelf, and I have them there because the guides were expanded material on the game's storylines!  I cannot wait to get back into these.  To see those glorious cutscenes (the Rebels destroying that Destroyer with the bomb they sneak aboard using a stolen shuttle?  The scene is a wealth of custom ideas!), the kick ass missions and story, and the complex game play that made Star Wars fighters seem so much more real than even the movies made them seem!

Yeah I'm the Empire though. :(  At the time I signed up there wasn't a JD group and I didn't play Alliance.  I'm working on my base being Level 7 soon...  I've got it where it's pretty tough for enemies to get beyond 50% destruction with me. 

I've been exacting my revenge of late too, on guys that attacked me when I was a noob.

Some thoughts...

On Abraham leaving, they've brought it up about his character that Rick has his mission, and Abraham has his, and Abraham's possible flaw (or advantage) is he's completely focused on his "mission" and I think the mission is what his leaving is all about...  He says there's a threat to Eugene so he's leaving.  Maggie/Glenn convince him if he sticks around 12 hours to help deal with the Hunters they'll go with him, no questions, no hassle.  He wants that, so he agrees.  He leaves, they leave with him.  He is on his mission, and his mission doesn't include looking for Darryl/Carol, which is what Rick wants to stay and do.  Abraham's leaving is about leaving Darryl/Carol and continuing the DC trip, is the way I see it.  So to me it makes sense I guess.

Garreth knows Carol, Tyrese, and Judith's names via Tyrese's goon he let go.  He knew Bob's name back at Terminus, Rick as well if I recall, back at the trough.  It's tough to say how long they were being held because there's not a clear cut timeline on that...  The group look to have worked on their weapons a little while though, so I'm ok with suspending disbelief that he learned the names of the captives quickly and got the last 3 from the guy Tyrese didn't kill.

The slaughter of the Termites in the church was OUTSTANDING.  Every bit as satisfying, if not a little more quick, as the Claimers being killed.  I think it is personal with Garreth, but I think it's a personal thing that goes back to the takeover of Terminus from them.  I think that eating people is clearly not a necessity, so they do it for some reason beyond that.  They can hunt.  They can gather.  The ability to maintain a society that way is clear with Woodbury, so I think the Termites maintain the "it's not personal" thing for their own psyche, but they're all doing what they do because it's personal.  At the very least the core ones (Garreth, his mother, etc.).

No clue on the tainted meat thing...  I'd go with whatever you say on that Bill.  All I can add is that people won't eat meat from a kill if say the intestines or whatever are punctured and contaminate the meat.  It's why gutting a deer is so important that it's done right.  I dunno.  I can go either way thinking the cooking helped reduce risk or it didn't and they were all going to die.  Ingesting stuff puts it in your bloodstream, so does the bite it seems, sooooo...  I dunno.  Maybe they'll never get to explaining that type of stuff?

I couldn't gather whether Rick & Co. came back on purpose, and lured the Termites in on purpose, or if they just happened back for some reason?  They didn't seem to explain that.  I like to think Rick did that on purpose, and basically used everyone in Gabriel's office as bait, more or less.

Gabriel's big character flaw is he's a coward then?  I'm underwhelmed. 

I think Darryl has Morgan with him, or someone new, but not Carol.  I just don't see why he'd keep her back (she's as competent as he is, and she knows the group and they know her).  Morgan you'd keep back because he doesn't know everyone to see them...  I dunno.  I'm just betting it's not Carol.

That's all I can gather. 

Wherever Beth is, it sure looks populated.   :-X
