I see a lot of Jabbas backing up as a lot of speeders fly off the shelf.

+1  Can't believe these are 1 per case.  They should have shipped them 3 per case and gone 2:1 Scouts to Jabba.  Hasbro just doesn't know their consumers at all.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Deluxe Line

I like both of these, but will hold out for sales similar to the main 6" line.  You can get most of the figures still for $10-12 instead of the original $20.  Biker Scout and Jabba should be available more in the $25-30 range.  The figures look excellent, the packaging looks like a Dollar Store special.

Just found a listing for new Lego sets that I had missed.  You might be pleased with one of them Scott...

Or any new Marvel sets...   :'(

With them being so similar in articulation and without anything for scale I had no idea they were even different sizes.

That's NOT what she said.

Fwoosh has pics up if anyone can't wait to see them.  The Batman looks cool, as does Wonderwoman though I think she is mostly a repaint of a version I already have.  The Superman and other figures were a bit meh for me.  I'll just use previous matty figures for the rest of the team.  Glad I scooped up Apache Cheif, Black Lightning and Samurai already for a fairly complete set.   :)

I nabbed a Black Cat last week too.  Pretty cool figure, though the $20 price tag was tough to stomach.  Any idea when Arachne (Black Costume Spiderwoman) comes out?  Julia is a must for my avengers, though I do have a cool custom 6" of her already.

Couldn't agree more.  With the Guardians closely tied to the Avengers, I would have considered getting these, but not in a totally different scale.  The figures don't look that great anyway.  I wonder what research Hasbro has that is guiding them towards even smaller figures of a different scale.   I get that they will cost less to make, but high profit margins on products that don't sell is not good business sense.

I have read all of the WD comics to date.  I started with the graphic novel collections like you have Nick, then switched over to monthly books around issue #85-90 I think.  Finally caught up and got tired of waiting 6 months for the next part of the story.  If you really like the show, you should read the comic.  The stories are so divergent now that it's like reading an alternate universe storyline or EU or maybe even an initial script for the show.  Yes, some parts of the story will overlap, but I don't think it would spoil anything for the show, since you never know where they're going to take things.  There are already so many differences between the two in the current storyline:

TV Andrea is dead, but continues to be a pivotal character in the books
Daryl and Beth and Sasha are all non-factors in the book versus the show
Shane lasted longer in the show, but Rick's wife died much sooner. 
Judith's story is very different, as was Sophia's
Carol is a totally different character in the book and was never banished from the group
There was no flu/plague in the book

It really is like a reading a vastly different story where some of the characters have similarities and some are totally different.  If you like Alternate Scenes, Expanded Universe, Marvel What If, etc. then you will like reading the book.  Besides, book Abraham totally rocks.

Thanks Greg.  My take on offers is that its ideally helping out both seller and buyer.  If you intend to sell an item for $100, you're going to have to pay eBay and paypal fees of at least $5-6.  And after being up a whole week, you have no bids, so chances of selling at that price are greatly reduced.  Then someone comes along promising to buy direct for $90.  The buyer clearly saves $10 vs. the initial price,  but the seller is only getting $4 less than he intended with no fees and no Ebay siding with seller complaints. I typically get buyers to see the light, but amazes me how many people don't get it.

I'm just sticking with dickish for now.  Even that last comment about being dickish was said dickishly.

As much as I thought Han being included again in wave 3 was a waste, I'm glad he's still shipping.  Fett's obviously been impossible to find at retail, but I still have yet to see a Han either.  I saw 5-6 Slave Leias at TRU last week, so clearly both Fett and Han are selling through.

I caught that bit about Judith too, but I wonder if it's real or a red herring.  They were essentially discussing how much they could get away with showing with regards to Judith, which makes me think she doesn't make it.  Maybe a dead baby will satisfy those needing more shock value from the storyline.  That said, I don't think they can just leave it as a bloody carseat, so I bet we see her with one of the other survivors.  Tyrese is a good bet.

I am excited to see what Beth can bring to the table and who else made it away safe from the prison.  Feels like maybe a dozen survivors or so?  (Rick, Carl, Michonne, Daryl, Beth, Maggie, Bob, Sasha, Lilly(?), Carol's girls, Glenn & a few others on that bus?) .  I'm hoping they bring in Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita in the next few episodes.  They are sorely in need of a scientist and medic at this point.

That's hilarious in a super obnoxious way! I thought you were going to say he sold it to you for $15.

Ha!  I would have been happy to buy it for $30...not sure I want it at all now.
