I actually kinda figured it'd be Beth so I guess I didn't feel surprised, but it still was a shock.  Then when she was staring down the elevator shaft, I got the vibe she was getting utterly depressed, then she snuck the forceps, and I really started to think they were setting her up to be in some bad situation and toast.

I just felt like she was a weak link, kinda like Bob, and they just seem to off the weak links as far as their characters go. 

There was a moment or two I thought Tyrese might get it because he has that vibe going too lately.

It was a good ending I thought, though.  Tense, and killed an old character...  I liked it.  I'm really shocked at how fast they tore up the Terminus people.  I'm also curious to see, going forward, if anyone from the hospital goes with the group since the offer was made.  I'd think half the cops might want to, possibly the doctor...  Everyone in there's so mentally f'd up though I don't know.  And the wards are all kind of pussies.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

I wonder what input he has actually had?  Lucas was supposedly being kept aboard as a consultant of sorts, iirc, and I'm fine with that...  I'm in the camp though that looks at Lucas as a genius for creating it, but thank god he's not controlling it now.  Not that Disney have proven themselves by any means (and I find Rebels a far cry from Clone Wars in terms of quality).

To me, Disney's really just more EU right now.  It's just wide open and what works works, and what doesn't doesn't, and I don't really care either way.  I'll enjoy what's good, criticize what's bad, but overall am pleased at new Star Wars...  I'm already sure I won't hate it, but I'm equally sure I'll look at it as if the Zahn Trilogy were made into a film by some random guy.

It's the same way I look at custom figures...  Some are great, I'd love to own, but I'd never feel totally right with it next to a Hasbro produced toy for some reason.  They'd go together, but not be the same (good or bad).  If that makes sense?

I'm excited though.  I think Abrams gets Star Wars and its fans...  I liked the Trek reboots and I don't think he was making those to honor Star Trek as much as he was trying to make ST new, for new audiences.  He succeeded at that IMO.  This is a continuation of what Star Wars was...  I think he'll recognize that and do it justice.  Hell, in 88 seconds he managed to make it look more seamless to the OT while still obviously modern and new, than Lucas was capable of achieving in the 3 PT films.

I felt there was a flow of footage tha blended OT and PT flight scenes...  The PT had a lot of that twisting and turning IMO.  The "flights" of fighters felt very OT though, with multiple ships holding a tight formation.

I was pretty stoked...  Still am.  I've watched it a few times and find some newness each time.  The Stormtrooper footage goes way too fast! :)

I'm planning on watching it as soon as I'm able.  I'm going into work Friday for a bit, but when I'm home I want to check it out on the gf's iPad and enjoy.

Yeah I got it for $37 and free shipping last month, and man it's incredible to own it in HD and play it on the big screen.  The kids want to marathon it with me, which I did once before and it was almost enough to turn your brain to mush, but it was an experience...  They want to do this before The Hobbit too.   ::)

It's up there with Star Wars to me, so owning it was a no-brainer.

So a lil closer to 1/10 maybe?

Japan has the best stuff.

Separate colors molded in-sprue?  That's pretty spiffy higher-end stuff.  Neat to see it here. :)

That is indeed awesome looking.  What scale are those?  Also around 1/12?

Agreed on Sasha's decision to help Bob2 kill some guy who's been melted to the parking lot for a year or two now.  That was pretty bad writing IMO.  I get they're trying to tie it to Tyrese and him being the new Dale/Herschel of the group as a whole, but it was just something nobody would've done given the things they've been through and it was like watching a train come down the tracks at you.  Very bad IMO.

Darryl's bowling ball use of the zombie head was pretty creative though.

And yes, Eugene still being unconscious is funny...  I'd say Eugene is miles more worthy of being around than Father Gabriel though.  Gabriel is just pathetic.

Oh, and solid thought on him Bill.  I was thinking he seems like he has some purpose or plan.  It's a good thought that he may be tied to Dawn's group in some capacity.

I won't pay to see just a trailer, but it's neat they're letting people know where it'll be at least, if they are planning to go to a film over the holiday.  I'm not big on paying to see stuff at the theater though and don't have kids to take to cartoons and things.   :-\

Same thought as Nick there...  Just something to make a million girls say inane **** on Twitter.

I didn't mind the episode actually but could've done without the Gabriel bit.  Would've preferred seeing just the two groups and what they're doing.  Gabriel being a huge boner wasn't really interesting at all, and just destroyed the rest of the episode's pace.

I hate them setting up the "Rick's feelings are hurt because someone didn't agree with him" stuff.  I don't think he's that easily phased right now.

Rosita on Talking Dead...  Good god is she a good looking woman.

I liked her story about meeting Abraham...  No doubt he was impressed with her fighting ability, and that's why he asked if she'd tag along with him and Mr. Pants On Fire.

Just eyeballing the packaging, they're definitely bigger than Titanium's line was.  I'd say the fighters probably actually aren't terribly far off (smaller) than the Action Fleet Line actually. It might make most of them more in scale with the original die-cast vintage vehicles, possibly. 

The fighters all look to be around the same scale, or close anyway, while the Destroyer and Falcon are scales all their own ultimately.

The detail looks neat.  I'd like a set but not at that price.  The Y-Wing is the ship that has my eye the most (I'm a sucker for the Alliance's workhorse beater ship).

Steel City Con returns in a couple weeks to Pittsburgh...  Anyone JD attending outside of the normal locals I know going?  I always look forward to the December show the most, aside from possible weather hiccups. 

If you're attending, hit us up!  Would love to say hi, maybe grab a bite to eat after the show too.  The locals always try to do dinner and beer afterwards.
