I thought it was weird that Rick just started reinforcing a random spot versus looking around for something like the church.

I thought they were re-enforcing the spot in the wall where the truck hit when the wolves attacked...

Where did the balloons and propane come from?  Did I miss that?

I believe they had marked the route they were going to herd the zombies away from Alexandria with those.  The balloons were along the road that Sasha/Abe were driving on...

Awesome trailer.  Looking forward to that one. :)

Some Star Wars Black Series deals in EE's Black Friday sale...  some nice army builders in that $105 Wave 7 case.  Better deal than $13 each anyway. :P

First, an FYI that EE has some Star Wars Pop! figures in their Black Friday Sale. 

Now this...
Anyone else subscribe to the Smuggler's Bounty? I thought I'd try it out even though I don't collect the POP Vinyls, and they threw in a variant TIE Pilot into 1 of every 5 boxes. I think it's pretty lame that they're throwing a chase variant into a subscription box, and I'd be a little ticked off if I collected all of these and had to resort to eBay to get a full set.

Yeah, that blows.  I saw Funko hinting that folks may want more than one box, I guess that is what they were getting at.  I saw Jayson say something about the Elite TIE Pilot was in 1/5 of the boxes.  Like you said, a big pain to those trying to collect them...

I sure hope it's to-scale.

Looks like a mini rig!

It's a repack of the reduced size Slave I they put out in 2014.  Totally lame to put a ship they've already released twice (2013 Jango version; 2014 Boba version) into the $30 line like this before getting to more TFA ships.   ::)

Nice score, Jesse! :)

How much did the ARC-170 retail for, $39.99?  And that's a lot more vehicle than we're getting with this shoddy excuse for an X-Wing.

Probably not a fair comparison since a lot has happened in the world economy in the last 10 years.  But you're right that we're getting less and paying more for it with these vehicles.

$40 for the TIE and $50 for the X-Wing seems like too much, especially since both have already been repainted to capitalize on the mold/tool cost.   :-\

'Star Wars: Force Awakens' Racks Up $50M-Plus in Advance Ticket Sales

lol, not even out yet and it's already #47 for 2015 box office. 

Makes you wonder what's going to happen... $200 million opening weekend?  $250 mil?  $300?

Yeah, I'll give them a pass on Ezra since he's the "main" character and they gave him his lightsaber this time...  but Kanan and Inquisitor (who is dead and gone from the series) should have been Rex and Fifth Brother for sure since those appeared ready to go at SDCC.

Well, I hate to blame the refs for losses but that phantom "high-stick" penalty call sucked last night.

Letang gets friendly fire high stick; Wild get called for it; Malkin scores on the PP because Dubnyk is distracted because he wanted a goaile interference call on Hornqvist; Wild are pissed about how it went down and forgot that Malkin is good and next thing you know it's 4-1 thanks to another Malkin goal.

Might have have gone differently...  then again, you can't give the Penguins 6 PP chances either.  Just some sloppy play from my squad, which sucked because it was a win-able game the way that Pens D was playing...   oh well, on to Boston.

Malkin is really really good.  Too bad Crosby missed the game last night.....  wait, what do you mean he was there?  I don't recall seeing much of him.   :-X
Hope Maatta is ok.  I don't think it was a bad hit, maybe late hit, but just really bad timing for the door to open at that moment.   :(

Who thought it would be a good idea NOT to put this on the Walgreens site anyway?

The guy at Walgreens Corp HQ that wanted everyone to know about "", which is part of their network of sites they own.  :P

It worked - I had never heard of before yesterday, so well played Walgreens.

Has there been any announcement as to what the figures are going to be on those Wave 3 assortments?

Not yet... that info seems to be embargoed until 12/18.

Took advantage of the nice weather here (55oF on Sunday) to put up (but not plug in yet) the outdoor Christmas lights.  I refuse to turn them on until Thansgiving night, but I do so love putting them up without the ice and snow and cold blowing in my face...  :P
