LEGO / Re: Simpsons
« on: May 1, 2014, 03:39 PM »
Today was the official launch date, so I swung by a local Target and grabbed a few blindly. Ended up with 2 Barts, Homer, Maggie, Nelson, Itchy and Flanders. Along with my TRU haul from last week this gives me 9 of the 16, and I have a few duplicates (and other duplicates from the last few series) that I should be able to trade either here or on Reddit for a complete set.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

That's one of the things I'm kind of digging about the announced cast, they all have an OT "look" to their faces. Throw some makeup and weird plastic ears on horseface Driver and he'll fit right in to the cantina.

I have no idea who any of those people are outside of Serkis, so yay?

And maybe Adam Driver is actually a decent actor when not waist deep in **** written by Lena Dunham. Can't be any worse than Hayden as Anakin.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Superman/Batman

This is such a mess. Remember how Marvel carefully planned out Phase 1 of the Avengers and created storylines for the standalone films that all wound up tying together? This is pretty much the opposite; DC throwing crap at the wall to see what sticks. Has anyone at DC realized that they're just a few characters away from this next Superman movie actually being a Justice League movie? Not to mention that there are still conflicting reports as to whether this is actually a Batman vs. Superman movie or just "Superman, also featuring Batman and other characters." Add to that the unenthusiastic reactions by the general public to the casting decisions so far, and we're looking at another dud.

Star Wars Universe / Re: Disney to Purge Select EU
« on: April 29, 2014, 12:11 AM »
As I said in my original post, I'm still fine with this, but it is kind of sad to see EU as a whole basically gone. Plus, nothing says we still can't pick and choose which EU material to follow. :P

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: TWD-To Read or Not to Read
« on: April 24, 2014, 12:32 AM »
I'm weird in that I buy the individual issues (my local comic shop gives discounts based on how many comics you subscribe to) but I'll build up 3-4 issues and binge-read them. TWD is a comic that is really easy to read, so the issues just fly by, and I'm always wanting more after reading a single issue.

I found a small bit of these today at the local TRU and snagged five of them. Ended up with Homer, Marge, Flanders, Burns and Milhouse. Quite a decent haul, but it might be tough to track a complete set down.

Oddly enough, I recently caught up to the latest issue (125). Great stuff, and each issue flies by. By the end of 125 I was cheering just as much as I did during the Season 4 mid-season finale.

While the accusations are no doubt horrific, I'll still be seeing this movie. The "moral dilemma" excuse sounds lame though. It's the X-Men brand that will sell tickets, not Bryan Singer. Heck, I didn't even know Singer was the director until this story broke.

I wonder how many Bothans are going to sacrifice their careers to bring us spoilers?

Heads up, TRU has all Star Wars LEGO sets Buy One Get One 40% off this week. I went ahead and snagged the OT Microfighters since they didn't have the TRU markup (plus I was waiting for a sale to snag these)

Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit - Toy Line
« on: April 13, 2014, 08:14 PM »
Local TRU has a bunch of stuff from this line half off on clearance, I think everything except the Goblin King. Anything worth picking up?

Ultimate Warrior apparently completes the trifecta. Odd because the dude has been all over the place the last three days.

Saw Cap 2 this morning. It's too early for me to place it among the rest of the MCU but it will definitely be up there. It was just as exciting as the first Cap and Iron Man movies, but I don't know if I would say it was better than The Avengers. Much better than Iron Man 2, 3 and both Thor movies though, IMO.

LOVED the cameos and all of the obscure references to other characters who are probably going to be getting their own movies soon. I even knew about the swerves thanks to some articles about the merchandise spoiling them, but they still hooked me enough that I was shocked. And I suddenly feel like watching Revenge to see more of Emily VanCamp.
