Someone noted that the kid stamped Rick with the letter A...in red...while Rick has thoughts about another man's wife.

That was me, but I hadn't related it to the Scarlet Letter.  Nice symbolism there!

Why the hell was he flying backwards?  Senile old coot.

How did I miss this?!  Starz Ash vs. Evil Dead 2015 TV Series.  Raimi and Campbell together again?  I'm in.

Nobody really needs to know where he came from and what his pod-race records are.

Haha!  Thanks for the Monday morning chuckle.

Are you referring to the Rebel Fleet Trooper on .00 card with rectangular bubble or the .01 card slanted bubble version.   ;)  Man, the things I used to prioritize...

Another episode of which I wasn't a big fan.

Carol gets snuck-up on by a fat cookie-seeking kid?  Rick ready to pop a cap in some physician's ass so he can get some?  Daryl becoming the least suspicious of the core because some dude likes horses?

I get Rick going darker, and that's an interesting turn, but the rest of them becoming incompetent this quickly just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm actually really liking this last few. 

Carol's in a new area, trying to focus and hurry.  As someone with a lot of kids in my neighborhood, I've been surprised like that a few times in my own garage.  And I'm not focused on stealing guns with a party going a few houses down. This was a setup to show how dark she really is or what lengths she will go to, so I'm willing to overlook a sneaky kid.

Rick's been in a pretty crazy world where it's take or be taken.  I think that scene was meant to show how hard it is to just come back to a "normal" life after being on the run in that environment so long.  He didn't whip the gun out and point it.  I thought it was a good way to show how hard it is for him and the crew to assimilate.  Would be dumb and lazy if they didn't have some kind of adjustment issue.

Daryl has been in need of companionship since he lost Beth.  Brother's gone, Beth's gone, Carol's gone homemaker under cover.  Everybody needs friendship.  Daryl not taking a gun is more about him deciding to put some trust into something other than himself.

I thought all of these were really great character building moments.  I like the on-the-run action, but stuff like this is what makes us care whether they live or die.  Pretty good writing IMO.

Carol with the little boy was creepy.

Yes!  I get what she was doing there, but I Was just waiting for that kid to piss his pants.  Definitely NOT a people person.

Rick kissing the married lady should set something interesting up. Though mostly it makes me sad we don't have the Rick and Andrea relationship from the comics going.

I think they are missing Andrea bigtime.  She becomes so much more important in the comics that they either need to radically change storylines or set up other characters to take her roles.  Obviously Jessie is filling the role of Rick's love interest for now and maybe they'll keep her around longer than comic-Jessie.  And it looks like they're turning Sasha into the expert sniper.  I'm okay with it, but couldn't help thinking back to Comic-Andrea all through the episode.

And I'm a little scared they may have "traded" Daryl for Jesus. I really like Daryl but Jesus is awesome. Hopefully I'm just reading something out of nothing.
I wonder if a character named Jesus would be too weird for the TV masses.  It kinda makes sense to put Daryl in that role, at least for now.  Thought Daryl's skills are vastly different from Ninja-Jesus.  Maybe They are saving Jesus for the season finale?

Anyone have theories on the 'W' zombie?  Maybe it just stands for Walkers and was one of the tortured zombies from Aiden's team.  I couldn't stop thinking about it when Sam when stamping people with Alexandria A's though.  Is "W" a rival group or community?  I recall Aiden saying his group was attacked, but did he say by walkers?  Or was it maybe by someone else?  And who has the blender-gun???  Great setup work these last two episodes.

Lando's too buff, but that monkey-face-Leia is still the worst of the bunch.  Man, I remember thinking I struck gold with some of those rarer figures (Lando/Leia), Long Sabers, and tan vests.  I've since gone through really disliking these figures back to feeling a bit nostalgic for them as they brought me back in to the collecting fold so many years ago.  Man, this makes me feel old.

The Bullpen / Re: LEGO Makes Theirs Marvel

If anybody's looking for some cheap Lego Marvel characters, check out kantrol84 on Ebay.  He's selling lots of 6-10 figures in various groupings across Marvel & DC characters and most of the auctions are <$1 per figure with free shipping.  I don't think these are official Lego, but about as close as you can get.  I was tempted by the old school Hawkeye and some Star Wars lots he had up, so ordered them a few weeks back.  They arrived yesterday and look pretty sweet.  Each figure comes in it's own sealed bag (similar to real lego sets) along with the pieces to make a little display stand.  Some of the figures even have a little angled shield section on their stand featuring the character logo. 

I was a little skeptical these would even arrive given the crazy low prices, but they're pretty cool.  Pieces match up exactly with Lego parts, but don't have the LEGO logo on the connector stubs.  I'll post some pictures of my own if anyone's interested.

I was assuming it'll be an exclusive of sorts?  Maybe not.

The way distribution is, perhaps it will feel like a limited edition exclusive.

 ;D  Yeah, everything feels a little "limited edition" these days...

Congrats Nick!  Nice to see these finally getting out to people.  That Temple Guard is definitely the hard one to find.

I think this one from Hot Toys is the one you want.  He's 2ft tall, has light up LEDs and is a mere $825.   :o

Perhaps.  I'm sure alcoholics have an easier time avoiding a drink in a corn field than hanging out at the local bar on pay day.  I'm not really missing Kubes anymore, but I'm not ready to say I wouldn't jump right back on that bandwagon.
