- Glenn and Enid will arrive in a hastily and improbably constructed hot air balloon, with only enough room to save our core heroes, everyone else dies or is presumed so (leaving it open for Morgan to return again), next year they are back on the road!

Those are awesome.  Ridiculous prices, but awesome.

I found the faith discussion then a church toppling your safety wall kind of ironic.

+1 - That was a nice touch.  The group should have been more panicked about the walkers outside the walls.  You get enough bodies pushing and they're bound to find a weak spot.  Or the church will just fall over.  I thought it was weird that Rick just started reinforcing a random spot versus looking around for something like the church. Good that he is preparing beyond just the walls, but should have back-up defenses all over the place (spears, chain link, obstacles, ditches, maybe a few lookouts, an escape plan, etc.  I think there are too many walkers for them to take on their own...this is a great spot for some other group to show and take care of business.

Glad Glenn is alive, not overly impressed with how they did it.  He only had to kill two walkers and hang out under the dumpster overnight?  Seemed easier than it should have.  I was surprised there weren't at least a few straggler zombies around.  I'm glad someone called out that Enid lured them with the cans - I don't recall seeing that in the show. 

Where did the balloons and propane come from?  Did I miss that?  Super convenient for the story, but not something I would have expected to find along the side of the road, complete with three already inflated balloons...?

I hate that Ron kid, but can't believe Rick is willing to teach him how to shoot.  If I shot someone's dad, no matter how good a reason, I can't envision a scenario where I'm putting a gun in his hands.  Like ever.  Speaking of which, might be a better system for guarding the ammo than leaving the door open with someone half-assing it in the next room.

Morgan, Morgan, Morgan.  All life is precious, except that life that seeks to end other lives.  He clearly sees himself in some of these idiots, but break it down to simple math.  If a guy is saying he is going to kill others if you let him live, then you're not protecting life by keeping him alive.  when Rick shared what happened at the RV that should have been a big fat wake-up call. 

Did we ever get an answer on what the bleeding wall thing is?  I didn't watch the last few Talking Deads.

Oh snap! 

Captain America: Civil War - Trailer World Premiere

I hope I'm not getting worn out on Avengers, but most of that trailer did nothing for me.  I like the Iron Man vs. Cap and hope it doesn't take long to get to that.  Otherwise it was just a lot of Cap and Bucky running left or right.  The sides didn't look very even to me either.  I hope this ends up being more of a 50-50 break across the known heroes like they ran it in the comics vs. pretty much all of the heroes vs. the government.  That's the X-Men's schtick. 

I nabbed Vader at the store on my way home yesterday.  He looks awesome with the shiny metal armor compared the plastic from the black series figures.  Like Nick, I've picked up a lot of these, but not set on being a completest.  I'm not getting Anakin, Finn, or Maul unless I see them really cheap.  The draw for me is mostly in the figures that wear armor or are made of metal because the finish looks so much more realistic than plastic.  Most of what has come out fits this mold (E7 figs, Vader, Stormtrooper, Grievous, Upcoming Fett), but most of the remaining characters do not.  Outside of more imperial troops I don't think I'll get too many more.

Looks like they did the standard 1:00 lottery for Vader yesterday, but there were still nine left when I swung by after work.  They have a limit of one per customer at the lottery, then apparently a limit of two per customer once they put them out with the rest of the merchandise.  The site still has a limit of one per person, which stinks for shipping.  I get the initial limit to make sure everyone gets one, but after that do you really need to restrict the number per person?  Guess I'll have to bring in my kids next time so I can get six Fetts.   ::)

Meh - guess I'm losing my collector "drive" - maybe if this had been the Walmart SA version or something different altogether, but since this is just the Jungle/Space assortment version of the figure, this is just an unnecessary packaging variant of a moderately nice figure that I already have 2x in packaging and 5x open. In other words - easy pass.

+1  While it looks cool, there's very few carded variation purists left these days, so as long as the figure itself is just a repack I'm fine skipping this.

Nice find, eh?  ;)

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL

So here's a question to think about: Given the fairly poor reception for the prequels and Disney's willingness to erase the expanded universe, does anyone think Disney would ever eliminate the prequels or re-write them?  They'll be pumping out new stuff for the next decade, but as that push dies down, is there any chance of revisiting the prequels or will they just let them be?

That's cool Nick!  So, that's a custom box you won or a prototype box?  Nice addition to your collection!

My neighbor picked up Battlefront and invited us over last night to check it out.  Wow.  The graphics and game play at just the basic levels were amazing.  It's like you're creating your own movie every time you play.  I've already got an XBox One, so going to have to pick this up quickly and get the live subscription.

So, I finally caught up to the Season 2 finale via Netflex.  Comcast has S3 Episodes On Demand, but starting with epsidoe 3.  Any suggestions on a good source to catch the first two episodes from this season?
