I don't want to do this, and I won't even say it out loud, but.......

N----!

Or at least something related to him.

I know it's way too early and I'm not right, but I have my reasons for thinking it.

Are you thinking this is the Hilltop?  I don't think they've caught that far up yet.

Okay, do that then!  I haven't seen any sign of wave 3 around here, but did order the Luke off of HTS with their 20% off sale.

I was thinking about this earlier...I wonder if cannibals would/could survive in the zombie apocalypse.  They've complicated things by saying everyone's already infected.  Obviously if you eat someone who was bitten, the virus is in accelerated mode and could turn you into a zombie via digestion.  But if the virus automatically accelerates once someone is dead, would it also accelerate within the body parts that are chopped off?  At the very least I think you would need to keep the host alive for as long as possible to prevent an acceleration in any of the pieces you eat.  And I certainly wouldn't trust cooking the meat to kill off the virus.  Seems like a very risky and unlikely way to survive - rituals or not.

With the way my local stores are stocked, it might be a long time before I get a new purchase.  Loads of ****-eyed Leias on the pegs that no one is going to buy for $20.  Please, Hasbro, send out the reps and pull these catastrophes off the pegs to get new product on the pegs.

Time for a Relo Steve.

Burnsville, MN??  :P

If you're up for that kind of drive.  I think the Austin MN Target might be closer.   ;)

I'm with you.  It's not like you have a few candy bars and some soda and boom, instant fat anyway.  The cannibals wouldn't benefit from this in such a short period of time. I'm still not convinced the black car was Terminus.  Their game seems to be wait for survivors, not go kidnap them.  Maybe they had to resort to this because pickings have been slim?  I still can't get over the lack of security.  A rival group or pack of zombies could walk right in on that place.  And where the hell is everyone? Maggie and company need to be way more on guard.

That's awesome, outside of it being Leia and her dad.  Where's it from?

I already don't like how Quicksilver looks.

+1. It would help if he shaved.  I was never much a fan of QS anyway, so wasn't expecting much.

I hope Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are the first to get eaten in Terminus because they are all horribly ridiculous characters.

People who have read the comics seem to love those three characters.  I started reading them and stopped just when they were introduced.  I guess I want to try and stay spoiler free even though I know that books and show take drastic differences in characters and stories.

The more the show focuses on these guys, the more I think people might be better suited to avoid reading about them for now.  There are some interesting plot twists on the horizon if they map to the stories.  That should come about pretty quick next season though if they're going to follow a similar story.  Beyond that, I think comic fans just like Eugene for his nerdiness, Rosita for her hotness and Abraham for his kick-assy-ness.  Abraham is bigger and less of a pushover in the comics.  He's fairly prominent just because he ends up being Rick's Left-Hand-Man for a while (pun intended).

Great question Dave.  I'm not sure how much interaction there is between those divisions.  I have a friend who works for Target Online and they have zero interaction/sharing with the retail store division.  Something of a different animal, but I'm betting their systems are probably a lot more advanced than Hasbro's.  Jeff and others probably know the cost structure better, but I think it really comes down to whatever is the cheapest for them to make.  Maybe including a stormtrooper or doubling up on figures per case is a more expensive proposition for them, so they lean towards the cheapest route.  Working in Market Research myself, I just find their apparent disregard for consumer demand to be incredibly frustrating.
