Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Walking Dead

I was wondering why in the hell Hershel was with the group as well - it made no sense.  It should have been Rick, Daryl, T-Dog and Glenn - and they should have tried to lure the zombies out instead... but hey, it's a TV show and even in real life, people do stupid things. 

As for Hershel's leg, I'm assuming he'll live... in the books, one guy who does get bit in the jail does die... but also, Dale (who died in Season 2) was bit later, and they cut off his leg, and he lives - so who knows.  I'm assuming Hershel hangs on for a while and gets a peg leg... but man that scene was brutal to say the least. I can't recall seeing anything like it on TV in my entire life.. and that chopping scene rivals, if not beats, anything I've seen in a movie.  Holy ****.

Overall, this episode was fantastic and one of the absolute best - and I like how it's been several months since Season 2 ended, with Lori about to pop, Carl growing up some, etc.  Can't wait for next week.  I'm really looking forward to it.

I think it's very cool that they're wanting to make this... if it goes over well, I wonder what the chances are for a Snake Mountain?

The Bilbo figure is the weak link, like Nicklab said, but I don't think that figure is going to make or break this line.  Most people are going to be more interested in the goblins, orcs, warriors, etc.

Grabbed some of these from my local TRU yesterday... I'm hooked. 

Going back for more this weekend.  This is what I'm buying for the rest of the year.

I wish each figure came with some sort of usable diorama accessory... a chair, computer console, etc.

Not for me, but I don't collect that way.  If someone else does, I think that's for them to decide.

But is there really any meaning to any form of collecting? Isn't it all just the accumulation of stuff no matter how selective you may be?

Great point.  People should just enjoy what they want to collect, and not blast other people for how they enjoy their hobbies.

I mean, pass. 

Or maybe, I do mean piss.

I'm guessing some sort of multi-pack with 7 or so figures.

The Vintage Collection / Re: Will your collecting habits change?

I never could get into the Clone Wars because to me, it looks like an animated video game sequence.  There's some cool designs and all, but ever since this came into play, collecting hasn't been as fun for me.  I am not dreading the end of the series one bit. 

That being said, most of what I've seen from the 2013 offerings seems like more of the same - heavy on repacks and slight retooling, with a few cool figures here and there.  Cutting corners when they can with the collector line (like not investing in new tooling for Phase 2 clone helmets), and definitely with the kids line in many aspects.

I have bought a little bit less each year anyway, but with life changes (2 kids now), I need to scale back regardless.  Hasbro putting less of an investment to reach collectors like me just makes it easier to spend less on their product.  They really aren't working harder like they used to for our dollars, which doesn't bother me as much as it would have 5-6 years ago.

What do you think happens when there are no more Star Wars figures to collect? Do we try to fill the holes in our collection? Does customizing become popular again? Just looking at the classic gaming sites, they seem to have moved to creating homebrews and finding obscure packaging variations of rare Atari games.

I wonder how much this hobby will change by then.

I plan on continuing to customize no matter what!   :)

2 figs and a mini-rig?  $25-$30 ? 

The price is supposed to be $19.99.

I'm in for the MTT, as soon as the Wal-Marts around here finally stock it.  I've been looking at empty shelf spaces for it for at least a week now.  I assume TRU will get these in later too?

Crud, I haven't found squat for Thor around here.  If anyone finds a spare Sif, can you grab her for me?

If I see another, she's yours.  Do you care about card condition?

Oh, I'm sure they'll re-card Biggs on a TVC cardback too.  Same goes for that Ceremony Luke, if they think they can get away with it.
