Wal-Mart currently has a Rollback on the new Captain America vs HYDRA Tank set, on sale for $15 from $20. Comes out to about 9 cents per piece when everything is said and done, which is a great deal for a licensed set.

Picked up my first 6 inch Black Series figure today, a Stormtrooper.

Found a lone Snowspeeder Wedge at Target and snagged him. Really, really good paint apps too. Only Black Series figure on the pegs, which I thought was weird.

Did anyone else catch the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover? Not as bad as I had imagined it would be, but also something I hope never, ever happens again.

Saw this this afternoon too. I passed for now, but if I do get any Rebels figures I'll snag this set due to the Obi-Wan.

Picked up Wave 4 at TRU thanks to the 40% BOGO sale. They didn't have the Snowtrooper Commander, however, so I'll snag one online.

There's no way we see any Episode VII product before Toy Fair, and even then I doubt we see anything juicy until SDCC. I'm assuming NYCC will only show us all of the filler we'll get between now and the Episode VII line release.

As for Sneak Preview figures, I don't recall any of them being too spoiler-ish. We got a major character for each movie (Windu, Jango, Grievous), an army builder (Clone, Wookiee), a minor character (Zam, Utapau guy), and an astromech, and the figures were pretty basic for the most part. I don't see why Hasbro wouldn't stick to the same formula.

Still searching Walgreens stores. The in-stock locator on the website has been totally wrong so far, and employees are starting to give me death glares for walking in and out so quick without buying anything.

2004 Silver Mustang :)

Still driving this one, though it has been beaten up in 9 years of ownership...

I recently saved up enough cash to put a nice down payment on a new car, but my Mustang just hit 100,000 miles this summer (it had around 20,000 when I got it, and I didn't drive much in high school or college due to bus routes and carpooling) so I decided I would use that cash to fix up my car. Spent the last week fixing up the engine (was having transmission problems) and the next step will be replacing the stereo (it's too new for a cassette deck but too old to have an AUX port for music players and phones). After the new year I'll start saving to get a new paintjob and fix a giant dent from being sideswiped in a parking lot last year.

Caught the Gotham pilot on Hulu... overall it was not good, but also not bad. Its main weakness was that it suffered from Pilot Syndrome where things are just awkward overall. Second episode will probably better.

Didn't care for the dialogue or most of the cast. Bullock grew on me even though all I see is the dad from Grounded for Life. Not a fan of the OC dude as Gordon. Jada Pinkett Smith had the most interesting character but as I said, the lines were really corny. Cameos were out of control, almost SW Prequel-like in the "LOOK AT THESE CHARACTERS WHO AREN'T CHARACTERS YET!"

Still, I liked it better than what I saw of Agents of SHIELD, so I'll at least give it a few episodes.

1. Cliegg Lars
2. Boba Fett (Ultimate)
3. Dorme
4. Queen Jamilla
5. Senator Jar Jar Binks
6. Watto
7. Padme (Meadow Picnic)
8. Padme (Lake Retreat)
9. Rickshaw Droid
10. Toonbuck Toora

Yeah, so if anyone finds an extra Snowspeeder/Cloud Car set, let me know. I missed out on both of those in 2010.

Millions Upset Over Free U2 Download

Apple Allows For U2 Album Removal

I haven't had a chance to listen to the CD yet but I don't understand how a free CD being put on a device is a violation of your rights, as some people online have claimed.

I wonder if this is worth a three hour drive to a Wal-Mart...

Nah, probably not.

Not sure what the point of that was, but it was cool to see the Falcon!
