Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition
« on: March 31, 2014, 02:18 PM »
Not something I would usually splurge on, but had some money from selling some cards on ebay:

Bought a loose vintage 12 inch Lili Ledy Darth Vader. No saber or foil chest decal, but all other "clothes" with him and in nice shape.

Love this thing. Not because it is great looking, but it's just so funny looking. Looks like they took a vintage basic figure Vader head and enlarged it and then put it on a Ken Doll body that was painted black. and then given black clothes to wear with a cape.

I think I felt about last night's episode the same way I felt about the season. Great episode. Great character development.

Joe thing was awesome. Haven't reached that scene's equivalent in the comics yet. Thought the Rick (and others) coming to terms with the fact that it is ok to be able to do what they are capable of doing now in this world was great. It may feel evil, but if it's to protect the ones you love then it is Ok. Doesn't make them a monster.

All that being said, my gut feeling is not enough happened this season. Can't totally explain why I feel that, but I do. Would have liked a little more info on Terminus with all the build up to the finale too.

Received a lot of four "1988 Star Wars Action Figures" that I recently bought for $10 on ebay today.
POTF2 Biggs-my son can have that
POTF2 8D8-he can have that too
vintage long mouth Biker Scout-add him to my vintage army builders
and the reason I bought the lot, a vintage short mouth Biker Scout. If I have read up correctly it is the Lili Ledy version too.

I don't want to do this, and I won't even say it out loud, but.......

N----!

Or at least something related to him.

I know it's way too early and I'm not right, but I have my reasons for thinking it.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Recent Purchases

SLP Target has had three 6" on their three pegs for at least two weeks and no restock so I don't know that will work. Angers me greatly

Recently purchased and received today a loose Rebel Transport. I've always wanted one but just never have picked it up even though they aren't that pricey. I believe it is complete with all decals with the exception it only came with four backpacks and two gas masks (one of each would have been good enough for me). Even got the instructions that had been gnawed on by some sort of rodent.

Me too. I am going to need to become an expert on the blind bag fondling though.

Anybody watch the slash show The Following? Well, Emily Kinney aka Beth was on it as a psycho girl who ultimately was killed at the end. Thought it notable she was moonlighting from Walking Dead in her character's absence.

Didn't expect "Following" spoilers in this thread.

My take: Hasbro's assortments aren't good. Retailers have done a bad job ordering. I don't care why since clearly I'm not smart enough to know why. And it sucks because I hate the fact you can only get figs any more by ordering online. The end. Up yours Hasbro, Target, WM, KM, TRU

Don't know if this is anyone's cup of tea, but I saw wave 5 of the mini mates at TRU today. Including TRU exclusive sets, one with Abraham and one with Eugene.

Got my Luke Bespin in the mail today from HTS. I really like him. I wish so much that these were cheaper so the line had a better chance of survival.

Best offered someone on ebay for a color Negan and they accepted cheaper than I was expecting so he arrived today. Now I just need to read like 60 more comics and I will get to his character.

Used SPRING14 promocode at HTS tonight to score Bespin Luke and Obi-Wan for $15.99 each, plus free shipping.  8)

I'm just tired of waiting for these to hit Target and I know I'll never get to TRU early enough to score their random 1 case when it arrives. This seemed like too good a deal to pass up. Now I just need that $%* Stormtrooper!

Thanks for the tip! Nice to get Luke for less than retail.

I liked everything about last night's episode. I do think these last three episodes need to ramp it up, but the last bunch of episodes have made me care about numerous characters this second half of the season I didn't care much about before. When they kill off Beth I'm going to care now.

And both Beth disappearing and Daryl joining the creepy red neck group left me with a bad feeling in my stomach.
