I bought a set to test them out.  Worst case scenario they are filler for all my ships that need TIE Pilots.

For us novice price matchers, how would you go about handling this with TRU or Target.  Can you just show them the web price on your phone?

Don't they show the car from a distance followed by a muffled gunshot?  I don't see any way she's still alive and/or helping, or who else would have been shot.

I always liked him.  He was a great dad on Growing Pains.

This was a great episode.  Mostly ripped straight from the comics, so I was very happy to see Spencer spill his guts.  Negan's take on it is spot on - what a cowardly politician.  The home-made bullet thing was a little weird, but I don't know enough about bullets and spent casings to know if someone could easily tell a factory-produced bullet from a home-made one.  I'm willing to accept that Negan has seen enough bullets fly that something unusual caught his eye when he picked up this slug.  If nothing else, I'm glad they resolved the lone bullet storyline before the break and at least Lucille was wounded.  I'm also thinking the "spy" was one of those Oceanside peeps.  Ties them into the story and it kind of makes sense with the boat and all.  They're not in the comic to the best of my knowledge.

The only part of the story that really bugged me was the Michonne storyline.  Seemed like the Savior she kidnapped had a lot of fight in her last week.  She has nothing to say, then just tells Michonne how to kill her and hide the car?  What?  If she wanted to protect her group, why not at least try to ram something with the car and get away.  If she wants to help someone take Negan down, then why not offer a way to help?  I didn't get her rationale or motivation at all, other than it was a convenient way for Michonne to know the path from Alexandria to the Saviors.

Great to see the gang all together again at the end (+Jesus).  They're going to have to rally everyone against Negan pretty quick though.  I can't see him sitting around long after finding Fat Joe dead and Daryl on the run.

For a good laugh check out Yahoo's draft day projections vs what were actually the final standings  ::) ::)  Their predicted 1-2-3 finished 10-11-12 :)

Hahaha!  Computer simulation rankings are the kiss of death.

Wow, close game Scott.  I thought I had a massive lead, but it came down to just a few points after last night.  And of course T. Gurley goes off when I finally bench him... ::)

You can do ship to store too - it's online.  They have $25 off purchase of $100, but it's still $280ish even with the 5% savings.

I got asked if I'd pay $39.99 for Grievous.

Same here.  I did say I'd go up to $25 for a higher quality version of Lando, but the $40 for Grievous was a hard, hard no.

I've stopped at a few Gamestops and they're jammed with earlier waves.   :-\

Well, my Glit City code did not come through until this morning and of course by then Disney altered the price of their figures from $15 on sale to $20 on sale.  I still managed to get 9 figures for $12 each, which is awesome, but could have saved another $30 if the code came through yesterday.  I actually kept the site active and entered the code and it brought up the full discount, but when I went to pay it dropped both codes.  Oh well, still a great deal.  Thanks for the head's up!

That's a great deal.  How long did it take you to get your Gilt coupon code via email?  I haven't received mine yet and it says available in the next 24 hours. 

There is a link on the main JD page to take the survey.

Nick is right, this is a very common approach to market research purchase intent.  They'll be able to tell from the responses where a pricing cliff exists.  For example:

100% of people said yes to $10.99,
90% of people said yes to $12.99,
30% of people said yes to $14.99

There were priority rankings for figure quality vs. articulation vs. accessories as well.  I'd love to see the results.  They will get a nice read on what matters most, then be able to sort that by collectors who are willing to pay different prices, heavier buyers vs. casual buyers, etc.  I'm just glad they're soliciting collectors for their research, as I don't think I've ever been surveyed in my 20 years of collecting.
