2-1-WTF? Is his designation.

Mongo was the only one who ever inspired me to work a modern version but I could see making that with some modification for a more practical design. :). He does look evil tho.

Sounds like that mom needs some toys of her own, and to chill out.

Yeah those are the only ones kind of tempting me, and the Laketown one is really just an expansion of Laketown somewhat...  Not sure I'd want it.  The figures are meh.

Some army building sets would've been appreciated, ala Star Wars.  Less mains, more randoms.  Needed that for LOTR too.  Elves, Rohirim, Orcs, Uruk Hai, Goblins, Gondorians (Rangers and soldiers), prologue soldiers (humans, elves, Orcs), Dwarf soldiers, Trolls (Battle), etc.  The army building sets are always the most interesting to me in Star Wars too I guess.  Maybe it's just me, I just feel they've neglected the secondary people a bit in the line, unlike Star Wars.

INC re-releases in general would be nice, along with the Fleet Trooper, Echo Base Rebel, Legacy Hoth Rebel(s), etc.  :-\

Might come up in TD sometime...  I'm curious now tho.  The cuffs are a weird thing to stick on a zombie at random for sure.

Man I wish there was a cheaper way to get Smaug.  Those sets just aren't appealing really. The five armies kinda sucks to be honest.

Not ready to call it that yet...  There was a ton of evidence contradicting it...  For now anyway.  It is sloppy if that is the intent though.  Very sloppy.

Ah, ROTS, the only PT film that really mattered.

1 ) Commander Bly Resculpt (rem. Helmet, more articulation...  Be cool if he had his Clone Wars funky hairstyle & Helmet ala TVC Fordo)

2 ) Generic Republic/Imperial Officer

3 ) Crab Droid Resculpt (Proper Scale)

4 ) Anakin Skywalker (Medical Capsul)  Good idea on this one 

5 ) Rescupt of the Wookiee Warrior (The action feature style Wookiee.  Varying fur colors would be nice too, like the original).

6 ) V-Wing Fighter Clone Pilot

7 ) Merumeru Tarrful

8 ) Commander Bacara (Rem. Helmet, etc.)

9 ) Cin Dralig (Non-holographic)

10) Palpatine Coruscant Office Duel Resculpt

I'm still down for unique Clone Commanders and updates of old ones...  These are the holes in the Clone world.  The troopers need put to pasture for a while.

This movie's pretty tapped out too though.

His reaction to the tree makes me think Ricks leaving that mark but I don't recall that mark being important.  The character reacted though, like it was a good thing.

Wow, now that's a delay.

I think you might be right on that Nick...  They intentionally didn't show that I think.  Tyrese maybe hid something.  They'd have showed him beat the guy to death if they were going to go that route I do believe.

Outstanding episode, start to finish...  I too put it up there as the best opening this show has had since the Pilot episode.  Violent, tense, layered (though all in one area more or less).  The flashbacks set up some of the Termites and their ultimate return...  Like the Governor, you're the way you are for a reason, and they're no different.

Just outstanding.

I'm pretty ok with all the action, even Carol's fireworks display.  That's a big propane tank.  You don't have to hit much of that with it spewing that much gas.  Just a spark, and most bottlerockets pop with a lot of sparks.  She also had it fired from that rifle barrel and believe it or not a metal tube is about all you need to launch a bottlerocket with accuracy!  Suffice it to say I played with illegal fireworks as a kid, a lot.  :-\ (RIP, many GI Joes)  I can see it working actually.  Though she didn't seem to have random fireworks around her all the time to really know what to do, maybe it was just a good guess?

The final scene, post-credits, was fantastic.  People always are asking, and that was a nice nod to fans to throw them a bone!  I loved it.

Tracy, I'm with you on Carol.  Don't know about if you watch TD all the time but they polled people on Carol taking over the group since she showed clear leadership skills here, and she lost miserably, but I was honestly thinking she maybe should be the group's leader.  Biggest problem with that now though, is she's one of many.  Rick's obviously in a better leadership position when he's in Shane-Mode like now, Abraham's not a poor leader...  Glenn's emerged a little (and where there is Glenn, there is Maggie), but not completely.  Sprinkle in a dash of Darryl and Sasha too...   I think the group's back to group decisions to some degree, but much more intelligent group decisions than before.

And if I may say, Conan's the finest non-show guest they've ever had on Talking Dead...  Seriously.  "I'd have died on a sunscreen run".  I lol'd.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)

OK, it's aired now...

I'm a lil more annoyed, to be honest, about the "little things"...  The nits to be picked, if you will.

The "rifle that brings down a walker"...  Then Jayson at Yak pointed out to me on Twitter the AT-DP almost seems more powerful than an AT-ST...  I'd argue it's less diverse (in armament), so I think the AT-ST's job description is simply different, but the main cannon?  And the designation?  I agree...  So the "one shot from a rifle topples it" idea does annoy me some.

Likewise I saw Dave Filoni in an interview basically saying Stormtroopers are idiots because they're "conscripted", which that notion alone bothers me...  Stormtrooper, as a term, denotes an elite status.  You're not a Stormtrooper because you were picked at a lottery.  You're one because you wanted to be, or exemplified the qualities to be one. 

Filoni's comparison was against Clones, who were born/bred to be troopers...  But why do the OT troopers need to be so dumb?  I appreciate the thought, but they've become the battledroids of the OT era, and I don't think that jives.  At all.  Regular army?  I can buy...  to an extent. 

Rebels should really try to avoid this in the future IMO.  It's all for the laugh but makes the episodes a little more "hollow" as someone said to me tonight.  And I agree.

The AT-DP changes scale at various points, so take the toy for what it is.  Some make the toy look pretty damned accurate, others make it look about 2/3 what it should be for some reason.  May have been the perspective or something.

The Hasbro Stormie Transport is going to be nothing as cool as the model in the cartoon I'm afraid.  :-\  Totally aside from tonight's episode of course, but I wanted to say it.

Ezra's "outburst" to save Zeb became something of a debate for my friend and I, and I didn't mind it...  I saw it as possibly even a little tinge of darkness (emotional outburst) in him, but nothing controlled or intentional?  Though he has sort of shown he can intentionally do things he's somehow picked up somewhere along the way on his own.

There are ample cool accessory pieces I wish I had, in every episode, and they're just so cool but will go unmade by Hasbro.  Those days are done.  :'(  2007-2009, it could've happened!  #LongLiveYularrensBitchingTableAccessory

The Starspeeder(s) being highlighted as a thing was fun...  The inclusion of the old school captain, even better.

And I like Chopper a lot, and I don't know why.  I like the noises he makes I guess.  I'm weird.

Now I want a brown coat Han, two head variations (hood up, and down), made to ride the Taun-Taun.  No Blue Coat BS.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Jedi Turbo Speeder
« on: October 13, 2014, 07:49 PM »
This was a ship I honestly had no interest in, till I was able to get it just recently in the great blow-out of Vehicle Value 2-Packs between Ollie's and K-Mart in 2014.  Wow, how long a gap this stuff was out there in limbo, eh?

Anyway, I got the Jedi Speeder set...  Really used to think this thing was bunk.  Too small, just meh.  Compared to the toon, it is too small it seems.  But as designs go, for a simple "speeder" (IE: nothing combat about it), it's pretty neat...  Lots of little detail in the cockpit and down underneath it too, which surprised me.  Taking all the fighting elements out of it, it makes an ok simple little "company car" for the Jedi actually.  Which is what I'm treating it as.  I could see easily painting one up as a random Coruscant speeder zipping around in traffic too.  For that role, it's quite nice. 

The gun turret thing in the back is really silly, but easily left closed just like the cockpits on the droid vehicles.

The Ollie's/KM blowout has been a good way for me to appreciate vehicles I passed on when released. 

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: spray paint question
« on: October 13, 2014, 06:56 PM »
Paint doesn't really work that way...  The paint's adhesion to plastics varies based on the type of paint and things, but it doesn't really improve with heat.  Curing times can improve so long as there's no humidity.

Paints bond to different plastics in different ways as well.  Also different paints bond in different ways.  Enamels compared to acrylics, primers to regular paints, etc.
