Watto's Junk Yard / Re: TWD-To Read or Not to Read
« on: February 18, 2014, 12:43 PM »
Thanks gentlemen.

Based off the way I was leaning and no one saying "don't read them", I am half way through volume 1. Now to hope I can find the others I need used before I get to that point since my self control isn't good and I don't want to spend $15 per on the others.

Watto's Junk Yard / TWD-To Read or Not to Read
« on: February 16, 2014, 11:50 PM »
So I now have the first seven (plus some after that as well), sorry I am not a comic book guy so my terms may be wrong, graphic novels of The Walking Dead comics (the paper bound multi comics in one things). And I can't decide if I should start reading them (I have read the first one) or not. I want to so when Abraham shows up I can be all excited about him (or when Michonne did, etc.), but I also kind of like not knowing what is going to happen. Of course I know they are far from following the same story, but for instance I hadn't read the first set until after Shane died in the show and I didn't see that coming. At least not nearly as much as I have to guess the comic readers did.

So I would appreciate thoughts from others if anyone is so inclined. Thanks in advance.

I think you are right on Darby. I have a feeling if you don't get your hands on the Speeder in the first couple of cases a retail store gets, you won't get another chance because the Jabbas will hold the shelf space going forward.

Could the package for Jabba be any more obvious something is wrong? There should be a word bubble with Jabba saying "Where's my stuff?" in that space.

Picked up a loose Darth Vader's Star Destroyer Playset. It is missing the hatch door, the gun, and most important to me the top part of Vader's chamber. That said it was less than $10 total. Hopefully with some patience I can get the other pieces cheap. I am, however, the type of person who is willing to pay a little more total if I can pay in "installments" so I am happy.

I might have a lot of that stuff for you...let me check when I get home. I have doubles of the SD playset along with the Ewok village.

Cool

That's hilarious in a super obnoxious way! I thought you were going to say he sold it to you for $15.

What part of this conversation feels "personal" to you?  ??? Is that just your go to when you don't have a response?

Beyond a difference in opinion of where they should take the show, your posts have been rather dickish. 

Is this where I go back and list all the things I've been called in the last 24 hours?

For everyone else's annoyance level's sake, I promise I'm done after this. I have posted some a*hole things. True. However, only as an over reaction to something as trivial as a tv show. I, again my opinion, I obviously don't know you, think you enjoy the a*hole comment as a part of your argument, and that isn't just based on this particular conversation.

Ok Jeff, Jesse, and the others that just want to talk about the show, I promise I am done until we are discussing this Sunday's episode. SORRY all.

Lori and Dale were the only two big deaths on the show that I found shocking and unexpected. The writing was on the wall for Shane, Merle, Andrea, Herschel and The Governor so I wasn't surprised when they bit the dust. As much as I enjoy Daryl and Rick, seeing one of them get ambushed and eaten by walkers would really kick things up a notch.

Part of why we all saw those deaths coming is because TWD kills off main characters. Not because it was just so expected and the easy thing to do.

You must have a pretty broad definition of what a main character is.

Again killing off Rick or the show isn't good still makes no sense. And apparently that's what you think. Do you want the main character in all shows you watch killed off? I think I am done debating with you. I appreciate Greg and Matt M debating with me and Justin, etc because it feels like a friendly debate. Any time YOU say anything it seems like you're being an a*hole for the sake of being an a*hole, in my opinion, so it riles me up too. I could be reading you wrong, and if so I apologize, but I don't think so, so that is a pretty worthless apology.

We will just have to agree to disagree and I will continue watching the show and enjoying it and rooting even harder they never kill off Rick both because I like his character and just to be a jerk. Thanks.

I hear what you are saying there, but it still doesn't get me to one of them NEEDS to die.

I can't wrap my head around the only way to make this show good is to kill off Rick, Michone, or Daryl. I know that isn't exactly what is being said, but close enough. I hope Michone or Daryl goes, but not for a while. I just want to know it could happen. Don't do it for the sake of doing it.

I wonder how many people are hoping Rick, Michone, or Daryl will die. It's not always about shock value.

Kill off Daryl, Rick or Michonne.  That'll get people talking.


I don't look at ratings, but I don't think TWD is doing too bad in the ratings to need to "get people talking". People will also talk if the zombies all revert back to regular humans. Doesn't make it the way to go.

Finished "Crucible" last night. Liked it up until the climax and now I am really confused where the novels are going to go from here.

Not that anyone else reads this thread, but I was just thinking that Walt God.... I mean Disney coming in and deciding what did and didn't happen in the EU, probably is exactly why this book ended like it did and why it is a stand alone. Boooooooooooooooo. Thanks for ruining Pixar and Star Wars Disney (SW still to be determined).

I believe any of the others could die. And sure some of them will. The beauty is I don't know who or when. Good show.
