The Bullpen / Re: LEGO Makes Theirs Marvel

That Avengers Tower set looks pretty cool.  Ant Man set is a cool concept too.  Wasn't overly impressed with what I saw of the rest.  I'm a little surprised to see them already rehashing Quinjets and Shield Trucks.  How about an Asgardian playset or Hall of Iron Man armor?  Iron Monger anyone?  Lots of set fodder beyond the same five sets over and over.   :P

Those are kind of cool.  I don't buy a lot of Reaction stuff, but this line is promising.

Largest combiner or largest "official" combiner?  I'd like to see how it stacks up against Warbot's Bruticus.  If it looks similar, I'm all in, especially at that price.

Gentle Giant "JUMBO-ing" strikes again...

Gentle Giant Expands Their Jumbo Line To Include Kennerís DC Super Powers

I really like the jumbo lines and wouldn't mind having some of the smaller original Super Powers figs, but these figures are just massive space hogs.  Great that they're doing this for the DC fans though!

Cedar Falls, IA. Specifically, Wal-Mart. They must be early on their reset, since I never find these early.

Not that far from MN.  Thanks!

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season One (Spoilers)

Wow.  Last night's episode was a little gruesome.  Luckily, my four-year old didn't realize the inquisitor decapitated those two officers.

Yeah, that was a little departure from the usual kid-friendly nature of the show.

Domhnall Gleeson Tweeted out that he was the Son of Skywalker today and it has since been removed...hmmm

Debunked as a fake twitter handle.  The imposter didn't even spell his name right.

Found the new Avengers series at WM tonight. I picked up the Witch, since the Toy Biz one was awful, but they all looked great. Thor looks really neat, and I might end up building Odin.

What part of the country?  I've been waiting on these forever...

I would also say the chances of a non Peter Parker Spiderman are at least 50/50.

You're crazy.  The whole world knows Peter Parker as Spider-Man.  Peter Parker movies have made Sony $4 billion.  The circulation of the Miles Morales Spider-Man books is 30,000 (77th highest of January).  I see the chances of a non-Parker Spidey somewhere south of 1%.

I hope you're right, but I think the odds are a little higher than 1%. 

1.) In the comic world today we have a black Captain America and a female Thor. 
2.) On the cinematic side we have a black Electro in Amazing Spiderman and a black Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four. 
3.) There are currently no blacks in the Avengers lineup (unless you count Fury I guess). 
4.) The current cinematic Avengers map a lot more closely to the Ultimates universe where Miles is Spidey

I'm with Team Parker, but the conditions are certainly ripe to introduce Miles vs. Pete.

One thing I found interesting was that for each of the Talking Dead promos during Better Call Saul, both the host and the actor were fighting back tears.  The host barely got through the second one - looked like he was ready to break down.

Really? I didn't notice that at all.  The actor especially seemed jolly about the whole thing.  Andrew Lincoln's little goodbye was the only remorse I caught.  I really wasn't a fan of the way they were developing that storyline anyway, so good riddance IMO.  It was the right time to end things. 

Beyond that, I thought the spacing out deal was a pretty lazy kill.  Beth's death was lazy and now this one as well.  Was the catch that in the photos we saw two people, but only one of them was confirmed behind a door?  If so, that wasn't done very well.  I am all for a zombie getting your arm as you reach for a light or falling out of a closet or just rounding the corner, but I think spacing out with zombies all around or a zombie "sneaking up on someone" in a quiet, day lit house is well, just lazy writing.  If the other guy had inadvertently opened a door letting the twins out and someone got bit, fine.  Or next episode, apparently the survivors are weak from lack of supplies - I could live with that if it was remotely touched on for he who shall not be named.  But getting killed for staring off into space is a pretty lame way to go.

Why the hell don't they have boards or bars strapped to their forearms anyway?
