I think the Lannister sins all came from their cousin Cersi was riding while Jamie was otherwise occupied.  He seemed to rat them out...  Though why he had the sudden about-face never seemed to have an explanation that I recall.  I also forget his name, just remember he was a bit of a *****.

BB8 heavy, or a pingpong ball?

Sooooo, anyone gonna be in Disneyland tomorrow by chance? :P

Pete's in WDW I believe...  hoping he scores something there.  DL seems to be the exclusive droid haven though.

Hmmm, that's interesting. :)

And that's posted to the front page...  Thanks indysolo, as that seems to solidify Jayson's epic soothsaying on this one. :P  Good call man.

I could see that Dave.  The only thing that plays against it is his hold is weak really if Tommen were to order things otherwise.  I never quite got what the "fear" of the high sparrow and his followers was ultimately. 

Then again it's another element of chaos. 

I have to imagine a smirk on Balish's face when a raven delivered the news of Tywin's death, and Tyrions disappearance.  It's all things that benefit him by weakening the South.

Such a good show.

What Jeff said about Littlefinger...  Remember, chaos is a ladder, he legitimately has control of the Vale at this point, and he's certainly set about Chaos in both the North, South, and really beyond with whats taking place in Dorn, and with setting up Tyrion and setting all that into motion and he now in Mereen...  Littlefinger is a master.  Love that guy and that speech. :)

Hope this spikes the old stuff in price.  I'd love to sell my collection I think.

Small company...  assumed small runs...  It is what it is. 

It's like any number of other small toy lines out there now.  They're doing some incredible stuff, but you actually have to pay to get it.  :-X

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors

To be fair on the ships though, the Snowspeeder was scaled properly, and while the Sandspeeder didn't appear in the movie (though that it had a MM makes me think it may have, in the background, actually been there somewhere), seems like a reasonable speeder scale... 

Anything else, yeah it's a crapshoot.  The TIE could've been done better.  The X-Wing I never expected more than they gave.  And the TIE having giant wings, yeah I didn't count on that either. :(

I think you're right on the timeline Matt.  TWD seems to compress stuff too.  They don't seem to be that far removed from LA.  I didn't watch the last one.  I think in tappin out.  :-\

Dremels tend to melt plastic, more than cut it...  They're too fast, and there's no real bit for "cutting plastic" made for them.  You'd be further ahead with the Lexan Scissors and such.  You can buy a plastic scriber at Lowes cheap (look where they sell acrylic, usually near screen door crap).

If you want to ball out, look up plastic cutting tools online...  You can get some specialty stuff on ebay cheap sometimes.

I'm not sure what thicknesses you guys are dealing with but Lexan tends to be thin and VERY pliable (RC Car bodies), so scissors may not work on something super thick (1/8th or so).

Anyway, as noted above, Dremels MELT plastic more than actually cutting it.  They're a little more tolerant on poly but when you get into (what I assume) is ABS, it melts quite easily.  Thus it's ideal for vac-forming stuff, but Poly stuff you can heat and it'll retake its shape (SW figure limbs).

Not sure what these Anovos suits are made of.  Dave, that would go for sanding too...  Be light handed with it, and definitely you want one with a variable speed setting, not a cheaper one.

Paul, if you plan on donating that kit to charity, think of the children...  IE: me. :)  I'd wear it driving around I think.

EDIT: BTW, Harbor Freight if you need "rare earth magnets" Matt...  Also they sell nice riveting tools and tools that install snaps and stuff.  Might be worth looking into.  I hear that's the toughest part of putting together trooping armor (making it fit, and "stay").

New Phasma looks rockin' and a good bit taller which I personally appreciate.
