The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2
« on: September 8, 2015, 12:19 PM »
I'm sure these will be a BLAST to hunt for, considering the final Black Series wave was the first non-lightsaber items Walmart has stocked since 2012. The fact that these are new SA characters that are store exclusives will probably make them even harder to find. AND they're coming after a first wave full of terrible repacks.

The Grievous fig got GLOWING reviews from some employees I talked to at the LEGO Store over the weekend. They said it apparently sold out online and in all of the LEGO Stores across the nation.

Grabbed the new TFA Falcon over the weekend from the local LEGO store to rack up some VIP points. Had a great convo with some of the employees about it too. They showed me the display model and talked about how fun it was to build, and actually showed me all of the differences when I said I thought it was the same as the last model from 2011.

What's with the oil stains Stormtrooper? This would be an easy purchase if they were all just normal white troopers. As it stands I would be paying for three figures I don't want.

Was in Houston for the weekend and on the way back I stopped at a small town Walmart looking for TFA stuff. Nothing there, but I did find Rex and 3PO. Just need to grab the Jawas and INC and I'll be done with the TIE Pilot portion of the line.

Just got Kylo (6 inch) off of Amazon... beats driving around looking. Stormtrooper was sold out though, but I figure those will be everywhere soon.

Just got back from hitting FOUR STORES for Force Friday. What a HUGE letdown. Were all stores limited to 1-2 cases of product? Because that's pretty much all I saw.

Stop 1: Walmart 1. 5 people in a small line near electronics. First guy in line grabs EVERY Black Series figure. ******* really, *******? Tons of Micro Machines and Hot Wheels Die Cast ships, 2-3 of each 3.75 inch fig (just troopers, Finn, Poe, Phasma and Kylo were available along with Luke and Vader). Only LEGO sets were Rey's speeder and the 2015 Advent Calendar, which I snagged because the calendars are hard to find now. That's IT.

Stop 2: TRU. Had all of the LEGO sets (plus TRU tax) and lightsabers and some of the RC/drones/whatever. That's IT. If they had any figures, they were long gone when I got there at 10 after midnight. I'm able to get a free LEGO brick though, so it wasn't a total loss.

Stop 3: Walmart 2. Same stock as above, but there are some figures remaining. I snag Finn, Rey and Chewie, the only TBS figures they have. An employee is giving out free Topps dice or something and just gave me a handful.

Stop 4: Walmart 3. They didn't even put stuff out.

So now I'm stuck hunting for a damn Kylo Ren and a Stormtrooper (and realizing how dumb I sound for being so worked up over plastic toys). I'll be out of town for Labor Day weekend so I might hit some small town WMs during my travels but I'm not expecting to find much. Wish I would have known the stores either got no stock or were purposefully not putting everything out so I wouldn't have wasted my time.

Snagged Rey, Finn and Chewie. That was my entire Force Friday haul since stores apparently only got a single case of everything.

What exactly does it do? I want one, but I might get bored with it pretty quick.

The... the pack in figure doesn't fit in the ship it comes with?

Agreed, much better episode this week. Couldn't help but laugh that in true horror fashion, the black people died first.

I kinda liked the protest angle... explains why the outbreak spreads so fast (besides nobody telling anybody anything), because the Tumbler/Social Justice Warrior crowd gets in the way of cops doing their jobs. I laughed at the people running off the bus too... hey the cops just killed a dude, let's go poke the corpse with a stick!

The food thing at the school was weird too. Like, why wouldn't you take it after all of that? I did like how hard it was to kill Principal Obama, since he's a "fresh" zombie. That pocket knife to the head would have shattered a skull on TWD.  :)

I also like the decision by the wardrobe department to stuff the "teenage" daughter into yoga pants. Slightly disappointed we didn't get any zombies eating kids in the neighbor's moonbounce though.

Good question. I took September 4 off of work since I have to go to Houston the next day anyway, otherwise I wouldn't be able to go (like most sane people). I'll probably hit TRU since there's one 5 minutes from where I live. Only problem is it's at an intersection of 2 major highways, so it will probably be crowded. I figure I'll go mostly for the experience, then hit up a Wal-Mart afterwards.

I'm going to hit up the LEGO store the next morning and grab whatever they have too. I was there the other day to get the TPM poster and talked with the manager, who said they already have the sets in the back, will put them out on the 4th, and it will be cheaper than TRU.

How bad are TRU MM crowds? The only one I've done was for Clone Wars, and I just hit a Wal-Mart and had to battle a crowd of roughly 8 people. Might be worth just going to a Wal-Mart and skipping TRU entirely.

PLEASE just be a hologram voiced by the dude who voices Tarkin in Rebels...

I dunno, the CGI Arnold in Terminator Genisys was alright, but you literally see a quick shot of his face followed by a bunch of quick cuts during a fight scene. Tarkin doesn't fight, he just stands there and talks. We could hit the Uncanny Valley really quick.
