Just caught the new trailers for Ant Man and Genisys earlier...

Ant Man looks good. I see a lot of people ragging on it online, mainly for being "another origin story." but what can you do? Marvel has a good track record, and expectations aren't nearly as high as they will be for Ultron and Civil War.

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.

The first few seasons have been out of print for years now anyway... sad move, but I stopped buying the DVDs after season 12-ish. I couldn't tell you anything about the newer seasons, so I won't lose any sleep over this move.

I'm wondering if that rumor that Hasbro is trying to get out of making 3.75 inch figures by giving us crap quality is actually true.

I actually might pick this up... I passed on the Rancor because I was pissed that Target bumped the price up $10-15. I don't think I have that Luke or 3PO either, and more Gamorreans are always nice considering how rare they were here.

Fixed version has the TIE Pilot Helmet Packaging

While I'm pretty used to the Star Wars franchise milking cash out of fans, this seems... excessive? Especially since the industry standard has moved to Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital combo packs for $20. I mean, didn't they just drop BR/DVD combo packs last year?

Easy pass either way, since I already have different copies of the films on VHS, DVD, BR. If only more people would pass on these, they wouldn't have to release different versions of the films each year.

I was killing time in a Target this afternoon and found 3 Sandman figures and 3 Big Time Spider-Man figures on the pegs. Seemed weird to me... I think they got in a half case? No sign of any other new figures. I snagged one of each. Will probably never see another figure from this wave so I'll probably order a case of the wave.

Also, all the Sandman figs were the "normal with sand arms" variant.

Got my Revo R2 from HLJ last week (you may have seen the pic I tweeted to JD, Yakface and Jesse James over Twitter), and had a few minutes to fool around with him over the weekend.

I'd probably say it's the worst of the four Revoltech Star Wars figures released so far, mainly due to the limited articulation. You can rotate the head and legs, and the "feet" have Revo style ball joints, but so far I've had a tough time adjusting the joints so you can pose them perfectly (with the other figures you can pull the joints apart to repurpose the ball joints, but not so much with R2). The extra wheeled feet are a cool addition for if you want to have a rolling R2, but you can also pose him in the "rolling" position with the normal feet ala a Hasbro fig.

One feature I LOVE is that you can turn the knob/hologram projector on his face and there's a wheel inside the dome that will cause R2's "mouth" light to change from red to blue.

Unfortunately I don't have the Hasbro Black Series R2 to compare it to, but it would have been cool for Revo R2 to have a few gadgets, or maybe a hologram Leia. That's really my main complaint, it's a fine looking figure, and the paint apps are great, but nothing worth going out of the way to get.

I'd rank the Revo Star Wars figures (what we have so far) as follows:

1. C-3PO
2. Stormtrooper
3. Vader
4. R2

If anyone wants pics, let me know, I've been super busy as of late but can probably spend an evening snapping some detailed pics if anyone wants them.

These are apparently on sale at Target this week. I think the ad said $15.99 each. Good deal if you must have them.

I'll take one too, and add me to the list of people who will throw in a little extra as thanks. You rock Phruby! :)

Now I can finally tell Michael Cera and Jesse Eisenberg apart!

Intriguing list. At $8 a pop, I can't see us getting purely 5POA figures in the basic line. There should at least be something extra, elbows, knees, etc. Especially if the $30 vehicle line is what we used to get for $20. If the "Deluxe Vehicle" line is anything like that line from a few years ago where we got that Republic Drop Pod, those were awesome, and I'm pumped, especially since that would be great for Kira's ice cream bar speeder we see in the teaser.

The most exciting thing to me, though, is the return of Micro Machines! I hope they make some from all of the movies because I'd go all in.

Man, one episode left... where has the season gone? Seeing a lot of hate for this season online but I've loved it outside of the stupid hospital arc.

So many questions... what is Nicholas going to do with Rick's blender gun? What's up with the Wolves? Where does Sasha factor in? Will Carl avoid the friend zone?

One weird thing I noticed, the episode takes place over like 2 or 3 days. Why didn't Deanna interview Eugene or Glenn about what happened? Their stories would sync up for the most part. That's also plenty of time for Maggie to warn Rick and co about what Gabriel did, maybe have somebody go rough his worthless ass up.

Biggest issue with the episode was the naked chick Daryl and Aaron found tied to the tree. Same issue Jesse James (I think) pointed out with the zombie that bit Herschel's ankle in season 3; if a zombie isn't snarling or moving, it's dead. They don't "sleep." It should have been up and moving the second they approached it.

Yeah that's an instant preorder.

My Revo R2-D2 came in stock at HLJ. Should have it next week.
