While I liked seeing the McQuarrie Spiders...  Man this show is slow and dull sometimes.  Last night being one of those times.  The end scene sets up an obvious character connection and plot, but beyond that, this one was nothing but Spider fights.  If you watched recon after, they try to imply other stuff but really none of it moved the show along.

Next week looks to have more umph to it, but I was never a fan of having this character back, so that alone kind of spurs me on the upcoming ep. :(

I want to like Rebels more, but it's like its a chore some weeks.

The sex in the show is kinda goofy when you think about it but it's worse in the comic I think.  Relationships are kind of necessary for story but I think Darryl's storyline is the most believable in the situation.  Too busy to get busy.  You've got **** to kill and stink to accumulate.

Getting laid probably is not that high on the importance chart...  Except Glenn.  The apocalypse was the best thing to happen to that guy.

Dumbest thing on the show any single person has done was Abraham breaking up with her.  Clearly THAT is something nobody believes would happen.

I can but the rpg stuff and impossible head shots more.

Talking Dead has a few bright spots but every week is a chore to sit through the filler to get to the behind the scenes things, or the preview for next week.

Not the best ep this season but ok...  Didn't see the doc dying, but Hilltop has one so now they have that as leverage too.

Eugene...  Wow.  Uh.  Hmmm.

Bill said exactly what Matty was expressing.  Look at Marcus and Sallah at least.  Very unnecessary and nothing like their characters in Raiders.  At the beginning Marcus sort of plays a role like he does in Raiders but once he is integrated into the adventure later he becomes pathetic comic relief.  Take he and Sallah out, and you lose nothing and gain a lot.

I like TLC, personally, but yeah it's way weaker compared to ToD and RotLA.  For me I only hate Skull at this point and won't watch it.  Even it's figures kind of blow.

Comic relief in Indy should be somewhat limited.  Indy and his dad was plenty sufficient in TLC but they took it a step too far by dumbing down two secondary characters for no reason.

One of the more fun episodes and had a lot of action aside from the main story.  While I can't say I like all the characters, I do dig Chopper a lot.


Ghost Han Transluscent figure.

$27 works for me to order up and call it a day. :)

What was left at the satellite place was kind of absurd.  It was like all they had was mitary grade stuff and a spear, haha.  No hunting rifles?  Lever action?  I don't think I've seen a .22 or a small gauge shotgun yet since this began yet you'd think these would be everywhere.  Hell, I know I have 3 .22's here.  Nobody has one anywhere on this show though.  Not as cool I guess. :(

Why was that group from last night out by themselves?  And then two more guys out and about?  Negans group seems better thought out than all this.

Fortunately for Ricks crew everyone who knows about them in Negans army is dead, unless that random car that popped up behind the bikers turns out to be more than a mistake on the show.

Sorry you had to put your dog down Rob.  I know that feeling all too well, and you just have to take your time.  Still think about so many pets I've had over the years. :(

What they've done so far is really nice...  Poe and Rey have been some of the bed figures I owned in a while.  FO trooper is pretty kick ass too.

I'd be happy with any resistance trooper that is just nicely articulated and has a removable bucket.  I like figures to have a counterpart.  The swappable head thing isn't a big deal to me.  Rey's was a nice touch though.

I counted at least 18 in the satellite place, not sure how many done got blowed up by Darryl, and last night was 7 (3 women, 4 men).

They sure sent ****** reinforcements...  2 guys?  Wow the cavalry is here.

It's really gotta hit Rick at this point that they can't possibly be sure they got everyone.  Maggie/Carol should confirm that with Rick despite that last dude's claim.  It'd be dumb to believe otherwise, but then again the attack was kind of ill-conceived anyway.

I think the 3.75" Black Series is the ONLY way we'd ever get Leia in this outfit from TFA, so I'm kinda glad she got a slot. I'm definitely glad she got a slot instead of a 3.75" SA rendition of a character like General Hux.

This I just completely disagree with, haha.  Sorry Pete...  I'd take SA Gen Hux over any Leia outside of an ANH resculpt, any day at this point.  Maybe not a "general duds" Leia from TFA maybe.  She was more important in that outfit I think, for that film.

I liked Ceremony Leia for what she was, but honestly I can't say I'd ever have cared if they never updated her at all either.  To me, SA slots are precious few right now, and Leia (old Leia) really sucks to get one.  That said, if it were her in her General's uniform and not this goofy outfit she wore briefly, I'd have much rather had THAT figure made, but at the same time, neither one is as interesting to me as an SA Resistance Trooper (so Stormies have some kinda targets to aim at poorly), or some random alien even from Maz's.  Or the cool droid there for that matter.

Han I love, but I'd take Han in any outfit from any film in the SA line.  Speaking of, was his coat blue in the movie?  I can't recall.  If it was, cool nod to the vinty figure.

The "new" droid is a cool deco, but man, $13 for a droid repaint blows.  That said, I like droid repaints and just paid $70 for 7 of them soooooo I guess I was already down that rabbit hole for the most part anyway.

On Phasma, I know she didn't do jack in the movie really, but neither did Boba Fett or Jango (much) so I just am glad to have a SA version of her because I really just want to be able to pose her like she IS doing cool ****.  I envision that she has done quite a bit, and figure she's a badass ultimately, and so getting that SA version (was gonna make one, now won't) is quite awesome to me.

TFA didn't have a TON of memorable figures oddly enough...  I'd like to have seen better articulation on some of the aliens we've gotten, but Maz's was kind of a brief alien bit that was glossed over.  Outside of Resistance Pilots/Troopers/officers, and First Order pilots/troopers/officers, I feel like there just is a few main guys in outfits to wish for with this quality level.

SA Poe in Resistance Pilot Ground duds, and then a "tortured" deco variant? :)  I'd buy both.  One can wish.  A SA Finn in trooper duds.  An SA General Leia would be cool for me, and an SA Han in the outfit he appeared in 90% of the film in would be amazingly awesome and my top TFA want I'm sure (saw the 5POA and it's not a bad sculpt but not poseable kills it for me).

So yeah...  Ceremony Leia, and this Leia, they just don't have the umph for $13, to me.  I think if Maz can get a figure, any Leia can...  Maz is an alien, sure, but at her character's core she seemed just like a little old lady too.  And hell, Hux as a basic 5POA figure?  Did kids really care about him either?  I think anything's possible, even in the "aimed at kids" line.

But an SA Hux...  That'd actually be kinda cool to me.  :-X

I'm kinda bummed Leia got a slot, simply because she's a figure I'd be perfectly happy with 5POA...

Han is welcome as is Phasma.  Cool stuff. :)
