Found, and snagged a Jango Fett yesterday.

The TFA release has been hit or miss for figures. I've seen Targets that went all out with the cardboard aisle displays and fully stocked pegs (the store I bought the movie from had 3 Phasmas and 3 Hans!), but most Targets and Walmarts around me didn't bother stocking anything... same figures and empty pegs they've had for the last 3 months.

Now to track down the Luke/Rebels wave, and debate if I should get the stuff that never shipped here (Luke/Wampa, IG-88 wave, etc.)

Don't really care for the revisionist history of adding all these "specialty death troopers" to the OT era... it's just Stormies, Snowies, Sandies, and Biker Scouts, dammit!

That said, really good teaser. That shot of the Star Destroyer in front of the Death Star looked like a model and not CG!

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the writers themselves haven't fully committed to who's gonna die.  They're probably gathering polling data to see what would give the strongest response without hurting business.

Several cast members (Chandler Riggs, specifically) claimed that the cast doesn't even know who was killed and won't find out until the new season starts shooting this summer.

It's a shame this episode will be remembered for so many negative things because JDM as Negan was amazing, and Rick going from confident to hopeless at the end was cool too.

Been on vacation the last few days but was still able to make it to a LEGO Store to get Poe's X-Wing (along with the 1960's Mr. Freeze polybag)

Spotted Tatooine Luke and Kanan at Target yesterday but passed since I'm going on a vacation for a few days and need the cash. I thought it was weird that there was just those two from the wave... similar to when I found Han and FN-2187 a few weeks ago. I guess my store is either putting out half cases since the pegs are full of Zuvios?

Either way I was able to give a heads up to a buddy who wound up picking up the Kanan. I'm eyeing just ordering a case of that wave online.

I don't get the Carol thing. I was sorta digging her regretting killing all these people, but here she is murdering Saviors like the old days.

Did I see the ending I thought I saw?

Agreed with half of the town leaving while expecting an attack. It's like the ghost of Lori has inhabited everyone.

First off there is no post credits scene

I really wanted to like this movie, I really did, but there is just so much bad in this movie that outweighs the good. It felt like they had 2 hours to write the script before they had to turn it in and had come up with 800 ideas during a brainstorming session involving marijuana and just decided to go with everything. The pacing and editing were all over the place, and there was just way too much going on. Also, the ENTIRE MOVIE was spoiled by the second trailer. Imagine how badass the Wonder Woman debut would have been had we not known it was coming? Or the Luthor one-liners and general craziness, which wasn't even really explained anyway? Ugh, whatever company was in charge of marketing this movie deserves to go out of business. It's a textbook case to other studios of how to NOT put everything in the trailer and leave some elements of surprise.

Some random thoughts (spoilers apply):

- LOVED Affleck as Batman. Someone involved in this movie obviously played the Arkham video games because the Batman fight scenes were straight out of them. Alfred was great too. Seriously, I'd watch a Batman movie with those two. In fact, I really did enjoy the whole cast
- The one thing I disliked about Batman, why was he killing and using guns?
- The soundtrack was FANTASTIC, probably the best part of the movie
- They did a horrible job with the "Martha" thing. I get that compassion for his mother is what made Batman realize that Superman is human, but the way it played out sounded like "Our moms have the same name, let's go play!"
- What was with the random spread eagle shot of Wonder Woman on her back after spending the whole movie trying not to sexualize her?
- Zack Snyder REALLY wanted us to see Amy Adam's boobs
- The cameos would have made a perfect post credits scene... Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg have less screen time combined than Luke in TFA. And then there's the photo of Chris Pine imitating Captain America. Weird.

I dunno... I need to sleep on it, and I might need to see it again anyway since there was a doofus couple next to me laughing and commentating on everything that happened

Nope, the exclusive polybags are the snowman from Frozen and a fire truck.

May 4th Promo Minifigure Revealed

First Order Heavy Armor Stormtrooper, free with $50 purchase at LEGO Stores and I'm reading that the armor is a different printing than the one in the First Order battle pack out right now.

Some highlights from various reviews:

As with Man of Steel and The Watchmen (no ludicrous sex scenes in this jam, at least), this movie is relentlessly grim and gritty and resolutely No Fun Whatsoever, every line intoned with Desdemonian gravitas, every falling bullet casing memorialized with its own slow-mo funereal aria. (At one point, the Army fires a big-ass cannon, and that shell also falls to the ground in super-slow motion.)

An even less charitable way to put it is that a clearly excited 7- or 8-year-old kid sitting in front of me busted out crying and had to be whisked out of the theater by his father within the first five minutes....I felt really terrible for that kid immediately, and was mildly envious of him two hours and 25 minutes later.

This sort of nonsense nonetheless qualifies as an early highlight; the most suspenseful part of the first half of this movie was when I was trying to open my giant bag of Reese’s Pieces without detection. (No spoilers.)

Not-Cera as Luthor is getting a bashing in reviews too. This movie should be a win-win either way, if it's good it's good, or it will be one of those amusing trainwrecks.

Yep, really no reason to buy exclusive now unless you really love the packaging. The Target content will be posted to YouTube anyway.

Honestly kind of a ripoff... make all the bonus content available on disc or don't do it at all. I miss the days where all of the discs were the same and all you had to figure out was what store you wanted to get a preorder bonus from.
