Andrea was a tough loss, but I wasn't happy with what they were doing with her anyway.  Tyreese neds to overcome his inability to kill the living, and predict Sasha dying will finally be a catalyst for that.  Tara & Rosita are too minor to kill off at this point and Eugene is too convenient.  He's actually a really useful character later in the story (comic version anyway), so all that goes out the window if they kill him.  Beth was one more loose end that doesn't map to the comic continuity, so I think she was an easy target in hindsight.  Carol, Maggie, and Michonne are already playing the Lady Butt-kicker role - they didn't really need a 4th.  I wish they had found a better way to off her, but not disappointed in the choice.

It's pretty much a dead site. There is no way to continue the payment process because of an error.

I ran into that too.  I've hopped back a few times to see if they have it fixed, but can't be a real site with it down for so long.  Bummer.

Much higher and I'll need to consider selling mine.  Those prices are insane.

A petition?  Really?  I am not a fan of the way they did it, but if that many people care to complain about it then job well done for Kirkman and team.  Getting that massive of a response just shows they did the right thing in having a meaningful death.  They have to get rid of main characters from time to time to keep it exciting and fresh.  Would people rather have seen someone else go?  Rick? Carl? Tyreese? Michone? Daryl?  Carol?  Pick your poison people.

First Episode VII shirts I've at TeeFury

For just $11!  Still couldn't bring myself to buy either of them, but I did plunk down money for the At-At Ugly Christmas sweater and a different SW T-Shirt.  Code TF10 gets you 10% off.

Love it!  That concept was ahead of its time.  With all the mainstream Superhero love these days, MASK could be a huge success for a toy line, new cartoon show, or even a movie franchise.  That flying Thunderbird and transforming Mac Truck were great concepts.  Never understood the baddie Switchblade chopper/plane though.  Here's a vehicle that converts from a clear bad guy flying vehicle to a ...different bad guy flying vehicle.   :-\

These are awesome.  If only  I had the cash.  Or the space!

That looks awesome.  Thanks for posting!  I ordered two.  This is a great look for Kenobi.  Not sure about using the other for Anakin - the color might be too light - but I'm sure I'll want to use one on a later release down the road.

Too pricey.  I wonder if he would sell you that figure and another Willrow for $50 shipped.  Then you could sell the Willrow to Scott if he's interested.

So, I was browsing Ebay the other day and came across a custom vintage Willrow Hood of all things.  I'm an occasional sucker for vintage customs, so I checked out the seller's other items and found that he also was selling the three prototype figures Nick recently mentioned.  This and the lack of anything new to buy prompted me to cut a deal with the seller for all four figures.  I present to you - Willrow, Mongo, and Imperial Attack Droids A&B.

Scott - the seller was super excited to know that Willrow's creator was a member of the MN group. I promised to show you his creation - I can bring it for you to see in person if you're planning to come to any of the upcoming meetings.  He'd be happy to make another if you have any interest in buying one.  I ended up paying $25 per figure including shipping.

See, that's where I think it's just higher demand.  Just speculation, but these have sold well in the past, so I don't know why Lego would reduce their production run.

I was following that pattern, but finally gave up this year.  Sam figured out that he was getting last year's version after seeing the newer one in stores and talking with friends about what they got in their calendars.  I ended up just letting him open the last old one all at once over the weekend, then we kicked off with the 2014 set (which I bought at full price).  I got the 5% red card discount and we had another 5% from the pharmacy, so figured I wasn't going to save much more than that. 

I had a much harder time trying to track down the Lego Friends version.  I'm not sure where it is carried outside of the Lego store and had trouble finding it online as well without forking over added shipping.  Out of luck/fate, I happened to see it at the airport in Amsterdam during a layover for just $25 and snagged it. 

I'm not sure if they are producing less or if the demand is just getting bigger.  Seems like a lot of our neighborhood kids have them now, which I don't think was the case a few years back.  Small sample, but they seem a lot more popular now.

4 to kick it off
5 for a thriller and the Vader revela
1 to see Vader's origin (or skip this one all together as it isn't necessary)
2 flashback to the start of the clone wars
3 fall of Anakin and the Jedi, Yoda's seclusion
6 addresses all the hanging plot points and ends on a high

7-9 and the solo films might change that up, but its just speculation until we know the plot
