I had a couple other things on my EE wishlist come in-stock over the past week, so I put together a $80 order with Jon and Ghost included. 

Looking forward to checking them out.

Got Jon and Ghost today.  Ghost has 5 POA (neck, 4 legs) and Jon has 9 POA (ball neck, 2x shoulders, 2x elbows, 2x legs, 2x knees).  No ball joints on elbows or knees, but the ball join head is nice.  Would make for some nice easy customs if you want more Crows to guard your wall or whatever.  The samples I got are pretty nice deco wise. 

It's a really nice middle of the road figure.  Good sculpt, decent articulation, good deco - Pretty decent value for just $10 when compared to a lot of other stuff out there.  I think I will eventually pick up Tormund, Sam, and Ygrette.   Maybe go for the White Walkers too, maybe not.  Def going to skip backgrounders like Styr and Rattleshirt though.   Hope they can keep it going. I look forward to seeing what they do for Wave/Series 2.

it would be nice if that melted Vader helmet was included in the eventual regular release

If they have to keep finding ways to get collectors to rebuy Kylo again and again over the next few years, I'd say it's a safe bet it will eventually find it's way to another 6" Kylo offering. :P

Staal, Stalock, Stewart so far for my club. 

I guess the Wild only had time to study the "St" portion of the Free Agent handbook. :P


Hedman is due up soon I believe, but a year or two down the road.

Sounds like he's signed an extension today = 8yr, $7.875M AAV.   :o

edit:
And now it sounds like Andrei Vasilevskiy is extending too - 3yrs @ $3.5M AAV.  So now is it even more likely Bishop ends up being the part that's moved to make room for Palat, Johnson, Drouin, & Kucherov?

On Tampa though I think they're headed towards Hawk-style cap hell.  They simply can't afford to retain all their players under the cap.  Way too many good players that will be getting better salaries coming out of their ELCs.  Palat, Johnson, Drouin, Bishop, Kucherov.  Not all are due this year but in the next year or two a lot of guys are going to be looking to be paid and I think you start to see Chicago-style dumping of excellent players going on.  Hedman is due up soon I believe, but a year or two down the road.  That's kind of crazy.  Some guys are going to have to go and I don't think anyone aside from Stamkos (and probably Hedman) is guaranteed to stay.  Bishop will likely end up out, but a couple of skaters too. 

This is where we see how mych Stevie Y learned from the Bowmans and Holland over the years.  Yzerman already won a GM of the year award and he held firm on both Drouin and Stamkos and got wins.

Getting Stamkos to agree to 8.5 AAV in Florida (where other teams would have had to go as much as $10m AAV to get the same cash thanks to tax breaks) was a big win.  If Yzerman can keep selling the "tax free" discount angle to get some of those guys to take less, he'll be better off.

But you're right - can't see them keeping everyone.  Maybe they do end up trading Drouin or Johnson to make some cap room... even Bishop could go if they have to make room.


We aren't nearly as good as Tampa but we may run into similar issues as well. 

You and everyone else if you guys can't get that Loonie turned around. :P

NHL is going crazy nuts.  I think someone hacked all the NHL teams today - EDM sends Hall to NJD for Larsson; MON sends PK to NSH for Weber; Stamkos stays in TB days ahead of free agency (sounds like 8 yrs @ 8.5 AAV). 


EDM/NJD - crazy to think we can't get EDM to bite on Brodin or Dumba plus parts for RNH, but somehow they trade Hall for Larsson?!?  Gotta mean they are confident Lucic is signing there to take Hall's LW spot.  Maybe they still move RNH, but man - seems like a lopsided deal so far.

MON/NSH - PK Subban is awesome and MON is stupid for trading him.  I would take that trade all day long. 

And Stamkos must have finally figured out how much money he saves in taxes by staying in Florida. :P  Nice win for Stevie Y if they were able to get things all patched up there,  Hope it works out for Stamkos (and maybe opens the door for the Bolts to explore trading Drouin again?).

It varies game to game but the pass usually lasts for just a "season" of DLC. Sometimes it's a set time or sometimes it's a set/planned group of DLC.  Definitely not permanent.

I'm struggling to understand what you get with a Season Pass with the deluxe edition.  I'm not a gamer, so I'm not familiar with what all you get with a season pass and why I should pay an extra $10. 

You get access to downloadable content - levels, character packs, etc.

Was holding out the slimmest of hopes that the party exclusive was going to be TFA related... nope. :(

Definitely going to start socking away some cash to get in on the kickstarter once it is ready.  Hope it works out for you, Paul!

Looking forward to checking them out.  If I like what I find when I look them over, I'll probably grab Samwell, Tormund, Ygritte, and the rest over the summer.

I'm wondering if the elbow is a ball hinge and if there is wrist articulation.

The prototypes had straight hinges, no ball joints.  As of toy fair, it was just 7 points - neck, shoulders, elbows, knees (or less in the case of the Direwolf).  I would guess final would be the same, but I still haven't seen them up close...

I think I might grab some from Entertainment Earth now that most of them are in-stock (and count towards the  free shipping on $79 worth of in-stock offer ;)).

Oh man, those are awesome.  Definitely see myself picking some of those up.  The Marshall will be a nice add to my Mos Eisley cantina! :P

Love getting Bickell's money off the books, hate that they had to include Teravainen to do it.

I love the Hawks, but as long as you have Kane and Toews on those contracts you're going to see that happen every year. 

Yeah, keeping Teravainen probably costs you both Shaw this year and Panarin next. Like Brent said, the price of doing business these days. 

At least you have a GM that can keep finding Saads, Panarins, Teravainen, and Shaws with those late 1st, early 2nd picks.
