I tried Gotham but didn't get hooked.  I liked The Penguin, and I dug the idea of the Riddler's background and stuff...  I liked it a little bit, just didn't get into it so I quit. :(

I tried watching The Affair and The Leftovers, and both are depressing to the point I can't bother.

But they had others trapped (not just the guy who was part of the group that overran them) at the end of the previous season...  It's possible Rick & Co. were further down the line to be slaughtered.  I agree, I don't know that they'd have kept them long term though.  Waste of time, plus they were curing meat by smoking it for long-term saving it...  I think it's reasonable to think they'd leave them in the car for a while, if even to just weaken them.

BTW I see there's a painted laurel...  production?  Seems like Bucks Team are in some kind of production for an Asian toy/convention, as well as a sketch of a new "Fox Team" character...  A woman, with a crossbow, and a fox deco gas mask. 

The line's creator is up to his ears with creating this universe.  I give him credit.  I wish he'd put it to a cohesive story and put some of that out there.  He's got some of the groundwork laid out, but there is a lot more needs done to explain who is who, what's what, and who/what are where I think.  Hell, just a full map of Earth as it is in that universe, would be helpful.

I tried hard to show people the little stuff they do to the vehicles to make you WANT to play with them, and not just set them on a shelf!

I mean, they plug screw holes (these aren't your Hasbro vehicles folks) with hand-holds, and little hooks/holes/loops to add stowage, ropes, scale chain, backpacks, whatever...  You could hang your prisoners on them, whatever you wanted.

It's small details like that, which really floor me. 

I just did up a Quad Eyes photo shoot in my little weird space backdrop I've also been enjoying (on my Twitter Account, as well as any picture I take of a toy at this point, haha).  The Quad Eyes takes the Mk2 Speeder to a whole new level...  plus electronic.  Small electronics, but electronic nonetheless.

These mesh with Star Wars perfectly, the company gives a huge hoot about collectors...   It's really a line Star Wars collectors, the ones who nitpick details anyway, would love I believe.  It has that "World War 2 Sci Fi" vibe.

The Laurels...  Good god they cannot get those made fast enough!

I'm probably ordering Argurts soon.  I didn't want sucked into the figures too, just vehicles, but the figures are getting me.

I'd love to see this universe translated into a comic book or something.  Hell, a cartoon even.  It'd make such a good graphic novel or anime.

Who's to say they weren't given food/water?  Unless they stated that and I just don't recall it of course. 

I agree, I debate that timeline some.

I would think they're a hike from Atlanta too...  I mean, it seemed like the Prison wasn't just next door to there.  It wasn't next door to Terminus either...  I dunno.

It wasn't my favorite episode either.  I agree about Beth wrecking things and the twist at the end...  and I assume the "You can come out now" line was meant for Everyone Hates Chris now, since the twist is back at the hospital with Beth & Co.

I agree on the cleanliness of the place...  The car batteries gave it a little more believability but the reality is after 3 years, that few people, middle of Atlanta...  Stuff not jiving as much.  We'll see though.  How do the fuzz get in/out of that building too?  They seem to do so freely, and get to their little hoard of cars, but yet the outside is overrun...  weird.

Looks like the 2nd Group is going to run into stuff and have to go back to Rick & Co.

They split up, it's slowing down...  Hopefully it gets ugly again.  This wasn't a great episode.  OK parts, but not great.

I played, and let me say I would not be in an elite squad anymore.  Time to work my way back up.  I hope there's a way to back up your pilot.  :-X

Giggity!  :D

Seriously considering an Argurts Infantry now for completion's sake.  I have the Sol Commander and I like him more than I imagined.  I'm not a Joe articulation guy, but I'm looking forward to the Bucks Team they're working on too.  They are apparently a full team of figures, so they're a bit more interesting in that regard too.

Army building at the price is unrealistic, but one of each never hurt. ;)

The new TIE ship was pretty awesome.  I bought a few but I only play the game on my gf's iPad on weekends, soooooo, I don't get very far.  I'm getting close to maxing my base out though.

Siddy, hit me up with your username.  I can try to look you up in-game if that's a possibility?  These filthy Rebels need to feel the crushing heel of our Imperial boots...  and stuff.

Check amazon out.  That's where I got mine for a fair price.  They have real simple ones all the way to $500 ones haha.

Finally saw some rebels toys tonight... Not one thing I wanted though.  No walkers or TIEs.  Bummer.

Well of the Souls / Re: Sideshow 12" Indy Figures

One of the best Indy looks from any of the films...  His badass ToD pissed off look.  I dig it.  I can't afford it, but I dig it.

12" Figures / Re: Sidehow 12" X-Wing Luke

I hate to pile on but yeah, that price for Luke put him out of reach to me.  I was actually aiming to pick him up maybe, but that's really absurd.  1/6 is just too much at this point.  The weird thing is it doesn't seem to be for everything, but licensed stuff's definitely skyrocketing.  I can't believe Luke's more than a Stormtrooper though.  Is the suit that complex?

That makes sense for sure, for Starbucks at least.  McDs tho it is like having a bathroom attendant there haha.  You're Mcd's...  Don't worry about it. ;)

Wow, what's the point?  It prints a #...  Or at least all the McD's and BK's I've ever been in do, so why ask for a name ya know?  Seems like a really unnecessary step to me.  :-\

I still question the reality of the image regardless though.  It's the internet.  Like the fake tip receipts that make it onto Twitter and stuff...  It would be easy to fake it for attention.

If it were real, I'd just as likely say the fast food worker did it intentionally, making fun of the person saying, "Stephen, with a ph" to them.  It's not like it was a credit application, ya know?  I know my first reaction would be, "You're a moron, with an 'oron'", but maybe that's just my reaction, haha.
