The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Amazon Droid Factory Multi-Pack
« on: December 10, 2013, 03:50 AM »
Yeah I feel like two is enough but with a bunch of Black Series figures from Wave 1 going down to $3.50 at the same time, I feel like I HAVE to order a bunch of stuff.

Spotted a lone Han in the wild today and almost made my first 6 inch purchase... but the Han had a bunch of paint smears on one of his cheeks. I've noticed that a lot in these 6 inch figures.

Just ordered a second set at the $23.99 price point. I just couldn't help myself at that price.

The set is not my favorite but I don't hate it, and I was happy with my original set at $30. Love the TIE Pilot, Sandtrooper and Geonosian, and Dooku's Droid and the BAD are great figures too. I'm also happy to get more red Battle Droids, as I am the only person who likes that redone Battle Droid (I think I got several sets from various BOGOs and clearances). Like Jesse said, the only real "bad" figure in the set is the Clone, due to the reasons he listed about Clone fatigue and such.

$60 is a good deal considering that figures are $10 plus individually but with multipacks, people are looking for a bit of a bargain. All but one of these figures are repaints. Easy to see why people would be hesitant at $60, but jump on it at $30 and below.

CGI looks terrible... not too fond of the designs of the villains either. They've already established that they aren't following a realistic" format so why not just make Rhino a giant roided up freak instead of a machine?

They've said there's far worse than the Governor in the world...  I'm interested in seeing what that is, and this could be it.

Right now in the comics they're dealing with a guy named Negan who carries around a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire that he calls Lucille. He's offed a number of main characters from the show, and I'm guessing the TV show will go in that direction.

They'd have to censor him up a lot for TV, but yeah, just as bad as the Governor.

Finally got around to opening my Complete Series Blu-Ray, and Season 5 discs don't even load. There's just a black screen. ::) A Season 4 disc worked perfectly though. Apparently this is a widespread problem, and the discs that don't work don't have the audio sync problem. Great job, Lucasfilm and Warner Bros!

Amazon is trying to tell me it's too late to return the set but I'm going to give them a call tomorrow and get a refund. No way I'm going to be stuck with this crappy set that doesn't even play.

Found this on the Walking Dead section of Reddit regarding who is alive/dead and who got split up with who:

Confirmed deaths:

Governor, Herschel, Meghan (the little girl), Alisha (Tara's girlfriend), Mitch (the tank pilot), Julio (the prison's mechanic). Notably, Mitch's brain is not destroyed. Neither is Herschel's, though he is beheaded.

Escaped the prison:

Rick and Carl escape on foot. Rick has been shot, beaten, and strangled.

Glenn escapes on a bus full of redshirts. He is still sick, as are some of the others on his bus.

Last seen in the prison, planning to escape Tyreese with Lizzie and Mika. It's not clear whether he also grabbed Luke and Molly as those kids had run away a few seconds earlier. Important: Tyreese does not know Carol confessed (or was even suspected) as his girlfriend's killer. This is certainly an intentional plot point, given that he's now paired with her adopted kids.

Maggie, Sasha, and Bob. Sasha is still sick. Maggie is looking for Beth (who is looking for Judith) but stops to help when Bob is shot. He says it will be easy to fix, but Sasha says "not here."

Daryl and Beth. Beth wants to keep searching for Judith but Daryl says "We gotta go."

Last seen at the prison, presumed alive but plans not clear

Michonne saves Rick but then disappears without explanation after the battle is over.

Lily puts down the governor before he can turn.

Tara is running around somewhere in the prison. Alisha told her to go to a safe place and hide and Alisha would come get her (Alisha is dead now). Tara is presumably unaware that Lily is at the prison, and therefore may not know that Meghan is dead.

Presumed dead

Judith. Last seen with the kids, who are later seen without her. Her car seat is covered in blood, but it's possible someone (not Rick and Carl, and presumably not Daryl and Beth) grabbed her.

Presumed alive, not in this episode

Carol. Morgan.

Presumed dead, but questions remain

Sam, the boyfriend of the girl with the bum leg who Rick and Carol found.

The Wookiee Arcade / Rogue Squadron 15th Anniversary
« on: December 3, 2013, 05:52 AM »
I stumbled on a discussion on another forum discussing how Christmas 1998 was the peak of the Nintendo 64, with some of its best games being released during that time period. Most were mentioning Zelda: Ocarina of Time or WCW/nWo Revenge but nobody brought up my personal favorite, Rogue Squadron. Quick check of Wikipedia confirms it came out the first week of December, so I figured I would make a nostalgia thread about the game. Hard to believe it's already been 15 years!

I played RS before I played any of the X-Wing/TIE PC games so it was my first experience with a Star Wars flight sim game. I got the game for Christmas in 1998 and played it for months on end. It had all the levels from the movies, well, Hoth and the first Death Star, and lots of EU goodness. I still remember sometime in 1999 when they announced they had hidden a code in there that would unlock a Naboo Starfighter. Looking back it's pretty incredible they were able to keep that a secret for roughly 8 months.

We got two sequels for the game too, both on Gamecube. RS2 was pretty good, but RS3 was sort of a bust. They tried some new things but everything ultimately came up flat. I'm still hoping EA or whoever makes SW games decides to revisit the concept sometime in the future. Imagine RS with an online dogfight mode? I'd play it!

I was satisfied with the mid-season finale, and I marked out pretty hard when Governor took the sword, and also during Daryl's shenanigans during the shootout. Sad to see Hershel go out though, and in one of the more gruesome deaths too.

Kind of a mediocre half-season though when you look at the big picture. Outside of these last 2/3 episodes and Carol getting the boot from Rick, I can't remember anything that happened.

Plagueis is out of stock

Heck yeah! I was hoping it would stay at $40 for a while and pick one up but I just placed my order for a set. Came out to $37 after tax and shipping for me in Texas, but still a great, great deal.

And since it's still Thanksgiving, thanks to Hasbro for killing my enthusiasm about the line! There was once a time where I would have bought this set the day it went online, now I hold off for a while and get it for half price!

So, I stopped by my TRU yesterday and they had both versions of the 5 packs... on clearance for $10 each. I passed because I don't want to get sucked into the line and I also didn't scan them to see if the new set was clearance price but I might go back today to check.

TRU has an unadvertised sale on a bunch of bigger LEGO sets until November 23, with most of the sets being 50% off. Not much Star Wars related, but the Jedi Defender ship is $70 and the Battle of Hoth set is $30. I went ahead and snagged Hoth, which is actually a good price for what the set ultimately is. Make sure to price scan a set to make sure it's on sale.

I see Matt also frequents Reddit. :-* Expect that pic to be all over Facebook in a week.

And FWIW I got a membership to Costco in early October and they had Christmas stuff out then.

I LOVED tonight's episode, and I've been kinda bored with the season so far too. It feels weird seeing the Governor in a sympathetic role after everything we've seen so far but I think they did it well.

Still trying to piece together how he gets outside of the prison at the last episode. Obviously some **** goes down between that scene and the end of tonight's episode, with this new family appearing to be under control of Governor's old sidekick.
