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.

So, I have recently had pretty good luck contacting Ebay sellers who were unable to sell their items.  If I've seen something I want re-listed or noticed no bids by the auction end, I'll sometimes shoot over an email offering to buy direct.  This saves the seller time re-listing, avoids Ebay and Paypal Fees, and guarantees an immediate sale.  On my end, I typically get it for a little less and don't have the hassle of potentially being outbid at the last minute.  Win-win scenario in my mind.

Recently, I saw a fairly common vintage carded figure go unsold at $29.99 + $4.50 shipping.  So, I contacted the seller to see if we could work something out. His offer?  "Sure, I would be willing to sell it to you for $50 direct."  Ummmm...what?  How about I pay $15 more than what it didn't sell for initially?  WTF is wrong with people?

No later than Christmas 2015.  I'm expecting Star Wars to own half the action figure aisle by then.

Is this where I go back and list all the things I've been called in the last 24 hours?

All the things you've been called?  ??? Honestly Matt, I think you're taking this all too personal.  It's just a show - relax.

Happy to see these guys make the list

#09 Bespin Guard (Vintage)
#10 Hoth Rebel Commander (Vintage)

Disappointed that they fell behind the likes of Mosep and Leia Bespin.  Seriously?   ::)

Yeah, you're not taking this discussion about a zombie TV show way too personally at all. My bad.

What part of this conversation feels "personal" to you?  ??? Is that just your go to when you don't have a response?

Beyond a difference in opinion of where they should take the show, your posts have been rather dickish. 

ANYWAY, I am looking forward to seeing more of the cast in next week's episode.  Glad to see everyone on the run again outside the comfort of the prison and beyond the clutches of the Governor.  It's going to be interesting to see where they hold up and how they go about finding each other.  Hopefully Tyrese will get a bigger share of the spotlight and I can't wait until Abraham shows up.  He's a character that could actually replace Daryl in popularity and it would be fun to see them go at it.

Oddly enough, we signed up for the 30-day trial of streaming this last weekend and have already been taking advantage of it.  I thnk it's like $10/month, so a pretty cheap option versus other forms of media or having to pay per show.

Just an aside.  If you read the comics, although it is Rick's story...he's been through a hell of a lot of ****!

Yeah, Rick's lost more physically and emotionally than any character from any story that I can think of.  Despite still being alive, he is definitely Kirkman's punching bag.

So TWD isn't willing to kill off popular characters?  T-DOG? Shane? Andrea?  Hell, Andrea is my favorite character in the comics.  I would not be surprised to see Daryl or Michonne killed off at some point just to shock people,  but I disagree with the notion that killing off characters makes a better story.  If you have super popular and interesting characters, writing them out of the show means you're focusing the show on less interesting characters by definition.  I would much rather watch chick with a katana and dude with with a crossbow than the endearing travels of father and son Grimes. 

SPOILER FROM THE COMICS
Kirkland did kill off Glenn brutally in the comics and the backlash was insane.  People were incredibly pissed that a long standing favorite was gone.  It advanced the story in another direction and changed Maggie, but I think the story has suffered more from it than its benefited.  Maggie's less interesting,  Rick doesn't have his confidant/friend, and the new characters filling the space just aren't as interesting.  Shocking? Yes. But not a better or improved story IMO.
