Genisys though... I don't think I've ever seen a trailer spoil the plot like that one. What a joke, and makes me even LESS excited/inclined to see it.

Yeah... I watched it and was kinda stunned that they dropped a big plot twist spoiler right smack dab in the middle...  makes you wonder how ****** the movie is tracking for them to basically lay it all out in the preview like that.

I'll catch it on HBO/Netflix in a few years I guess...

Thought last night was a good starting point.  As a book reader, it's going to be interesting to see how things start to diverge... kinda like the Walking Dead, we've already had some familiar characters doing familiar things, but not exactly in the right places or order. ;)

It'll be interesting to see where they take Pod/Brienne at this point. Same for Jaime (who looks like he's heading to Dorne based on the previews).

There is debate as to the sculpt of the Jabba. It clearly looks to good to be the one that was exclusive to Walmart, and it's too small to be a 6" version. So, that leave it being a new sculpt. (which would be very weird).

Going back to the original rumor (which correctly called the Han/Greedo set for $40 and the Endor/ATST set for $100), then this thing is probably going to be about $130.

If Hasbro drops a brand new Jabba sculpt as the only new thing in a pack that is rumored to be around $129.99, then they truly have lost all touch with what collectors want these days.

It looks like a repainted Walmart Jabba to me (based on the arms, nostrils, and eyes), but the window-box glare and flash make it hard to tell I guess...

Holy ****balls...just saw some pics of the three clones standing next to each other...three different Heights.   I've been pretty silent on all of the Hasblow bashing of late but it is this kind of stuff that has me really doubting the thought process and Quality Control happening over there

Like I was saying yesterday to Dave, the whole wave is pretty much a disaster at this point.  An over-priced ($13), out of scale disaster.

Seeing the prototypes at SDCC'14 had me excited for this wave, but seeing the final products (especially that Dagobah Vader and the scale issues on the Clones) has me wondering why I should buy any of them at $13 each.  :-\

Took a long time for this rumored set to show up...

According to Rebelscum and the UK TRU computer system, looks like there may be some kind of Cantina and Jabba's Palace/Rancor Battle Packs coming this Fall

Saw this on Dan Curto's facebook page - Jabba's Rancor Pit Box Set

Besides the pic, there are no details other than it's probably a TRU exclusive box of stuff you probably already own (just like TRU's Endor/AT-ST box set last year).

Not much I know, but in case someone is looking or has been putting off buying for a sale...

EE daily Deal today - 15% off Games of Thrones Legacy figures from Funko

Somehow, Disney ending the sale right before thousands of Star Wars fans show up at Disneyland for Celebration Anaheim does not really surprise me...  :P

Congrats to my frozen buddy up in the 'peg. 

Who knew the infamous, big bad LA Kings would poop the bed in back-to-back games against Edmonton and Calgary when it mattered most?  Was not expecting that at all... very nice of them to give you guys and Calgary a turn in the playoffs instead.

Just saw that EE has a case of these for pre-order for $165!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, that would be the new $13 price tag plus EE pretty much hiding the shipping cost into the case this time (the extra $15 on top of the $150 BBTS and others are charging).

This wave was still planned for retail last time I checked, but at the rate we're going, no one is going to care -

- $13 price is pretty terrible for the repacked figures - Hoth Luke, Imp Navy Dude, Stormtrooper
- Ceremony Leia got punted into Fall 2015 (at the earliest, if not 2016)
- Chewbacca is pretty much just a new head on an old body for $13
- Dutch Vander is pretty much just a new head on an old body for $13
- Dagobah Vader is horrible for $13
- the scale on the clones is all over the place

I tend to agree with Alan Sepinwall's tastes, so his glowing review of Daredevil is another sign it's going to be worth it.

I'm looking forward to checking out the show... but I probably won't get around to it until Justified, Americans, and Game of Thrones are done for the season.

Just like StL reporters say it's BS.

Hitch says the call on Stastny was correct. "It's a penalty," he said

Oh, but Hitchcock's a Canadian too. ;)

Kerry Fraser knows his stuff, no argument from me on that.  I agree it was a textbook slash... problem is that a slash like that is not called with any consistency, especially in a tight game.  Kinda ballsy to call it there knowing it will wave off a goal, but it was a slash on Myers... maybe Myers sold it a bit by dropping his stick, but then that's embellishment and you still disallow the goal.

75% of the time, a slash like that doesn't get called... but it's still a textbook slash.  Kinda like travelling in the NBA, I guess. :P

Up next - Scout Trooper with Speeder Bike

Look for more pics soon...
