TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)
« on: February 17, 2016, 09:37 PM »
I couldn't stand last week's episode much...  didn't even pay it much attention while it was on, actually.  This show loses me at times, and at other times it holds my attention, but I have to say it's lost me more than kept me this season.  :-\

Tonight's (Ryloth stuff) episode was different though...  Better than a lot of this season for sure.  It actually involved some Rebellion type stuff, and some warring in the stars type stuff.  :P

I liked the Imperial Carrier...  The concept already existed, but this was an interesting different design to Escort Carriers, which IIRC aren't hyper-capable.  It's interesting too that the Alliance wants one.  Makes sense.  They also carried over the notion that Twi'Leks are enslaved by the Empire, for whatever reason, and so I've enjoyed them keeping that narrative going beyond Wookiees.  That some species just are getting the shaft, for whatever reason it may be.

The first sighting of TIE's in racks was nice too.

I'm curious how they'll be going forward from here...  When they're doing actual Rebellion-type stuff, it's a little more interesting.  I can't say the characters have evolved to where I care about them much though.  Except Chopper.  I love Chopper, and his design. :)

There's a lot of better stuff this episode though.  It's definitely cooler than the last one.  Much more fun and interesting.  And seeing Syndulla's crew using CW era hardware still interests me a lot.  Could this be a good way for the Alliance to get some Y-Wings in their arsenal finally?

As the show progresses though, I hope they pay attention to the EU narrative on some things...  I'd hate to see them show the X-Wing's arrival without giving nods to the previously established EU.  The show seems to integrate things well enough in that regard, but that's the kind of thing I could see them rewriting, and not doing a good job of it.

Time to get some Z-95's and Y-Wings in there though. :P  Let's get moving on that, hah.

Got the FO Trooper in the mail.  Took a while from Japan, but free shipping...  It ultimately cost barely anything more than it would've on HLJ I think, so I'm happy.

Great looking kit...  I mean really, these figure kits are amazing.  My only disappointment is I doubt they do anyone out of a helmet.  :-\  I guess there's the other lines for that, but it's still a bummer.  I think they could do eye decals, and the rest would be minor painting issues I would think.  Washes, or just little things like lip color.  Oh well.

Wow did that store get a ****load of 3.75" Wv3!  :o

I bought the LAST Finn (and last 3.75" TBS figure in general) at my store the other day for fodder purposes.

It hit here repeatedly, and multiple cases, but man, we're all sold out.

6" is always backed up to a degree.

The 4" stuff flew off pegs though, almost as soon as it hit.  Even the repacks, which tells me something about who's buying it (IE: Not the old guard).

Target seems to be a bit of a wasteland the further East you go, haha.  Here they've barely restocked since before Christmas it seems.  They're also never as fast to clearance it seems.

I really do hope to nab a couple Ezra bikes for repaintability.  Want me some Imperial versions.

BTW... more meat ponchos.  Why are you NOT doing this trick more often?

Hah, I won't go that harsh...  She's the "hope" element so I don't HOPE for Judith to become food, but at the same time, it's kinda comical she hasn't become it yet.  I mean, bowlcut can't stay quiet yet Judith is repeatedly passed around under everyone's meat poncho and stays silent?  Really?

Certainly at least wasn't helping.  :-X

Crosby's been scoreless last two, but Malkin's out too and so the 2nd line's sorta dismal without him (of course) and it's hampered Kessel who was also sorta coming on (a little bit anyway) since Johnston got pink slipped.  Plus teams then focus shut-down guys on Crosby whereas Malkin often draws the top guys in a kind of irony...  ****** timing since every point is seriously counting this year.  The East is a logjam at the bottom.

So someone's spotted a mysterious car in the background, just before the baddies do the nibbling...  Definitely a car comes into picture waaaayyyy in the background.  :-X

Is it a mistake, or was it a really subtle way to say Negan was watching?

Yeah we had our woes earlier in the year, and it's biting us in the ass now as the Pens are fighting for playoff life right now with just about everyone else in the east it seems.  Every game at this point is a playoff game it seems, and so many of ours down the stretch are in the East.  I don't think we go past the Mississippi again actually.

Since our coaching change though it's like a switch was flipped for Crosby who's back in the scoring race...  Amazing what he can do when he's not in some asinine system that sends him behind his own net to fight for pucks.  ::)  I didn't feel too bad when HCMJ was told to pound pavement.  Total different scenario here I guess, as the players bought into the system, but were stacked for offensive play and were being hemmed in their own end by their own bench crew.

I'm still searching...  One of the few things I'm kinda desperate to get right now. :)

Yeah I really liked the episode overall...  Even the fakey rocket blast and stuff, but overall I really enjoyed that whole episode start to finish.  It was fast paced, you felt everyone was in pretty solid danger all the time, even Rick, and you felt like some of the comic stuff coming true just was nice...  Very very fun.

The opening 5 minutes alone, just fun.  Maybe one of the most fun sequences of the whole series.

I find Carol's responsibility for so many deaths, especially of younger people, to be interesting considering how many people love her.  She's basically done one good thing (saving everyone at Terminus).  Outside of that, since S2, she's a broken person who does what she wants.  She's Shane if Shane hadn't died, oddly enough.  Funny how he came to her rescue in S1 and now she's the one who says F it to cooperation.  She's manipulative too in many ways.  She maybe is even more easy to compare to The Governor in that way.  And she's often simply wrong.

But so many people are and that's what is interesting...  Like Morgan.  Morgan has ideals, like Dale, and ideals don't work and cause more trouble than they solve a lot of the time.  Morgan against the Claimers?  I dunno how that turns out then.

Morgan when the Termites are trapped?  He lets em go, and then what?  Someone else is BBQ?

It was nice to see Father Gabriel not be as worthless as a turd.  Eugene is Eugene...  I thought he was maybe on the way out the most.  Even the Glenn thing, they had me on basically every character everywhere being open to their demise.  They don't always do that so well.  Like last year I knew Glenn wasn't dead.  I knew it. 

Anyway, good stuff all around.  And Alexandria may be a much stronger place, though so many are dead.

And man, thank god those 3 are gone...  well, not her, but the other two...  I couldn't take them.  And if you watched Talking Dead, that kid was as obnoxious in real life.

Acid Rain exclusive Laurel "Hiroshima" Worker Mech w/exclusive figure...

Love this thing.  LE to 400 it seems, which is pretty low # for a toy so I got one early.  Would like two, but the $119.99 price will probably keep me at one.  :-X

Absolutely love the deco and the figure is cool as hell.  $99.99 would've been an easier price to choke down, but this'll look slick on the shelf, or in a Star Wars diorama doin a little manual labor.  ;D

A store still usable for some of us.  :P

I picked up two more stools (2nd Vader and a Stormtrooper).  May as well have the set, since I need stools for the shop and gives me a Vader to shorten and add casters to for in my customizing hell hole.

You can get them to ship you these too, if you don't have K-Mart handy...  Ship to store's obviously free though.  Seems they're only taking that for who have them in stock though, as I can't get Fett anymore and I was there tonight and all Fett's they had on the floor are gone.  I have 1 Fett, 1 Stormie, 2 Vader...  I'm calling it a day.  I paid for most of them with rewards points too, so each one only cost me maybe $10 out of pocket, or less.
