Oooh, that would be awesome. I'll look that up later. Until then, the defective Stormie will just have to be a "laying in pain because his leg was chopped off" Stormtrooper.

So that Stormtrooper I ordered... it had two left thighs. :(

Ordered a second one because you can't exactly return them, and it got here today. It isn't defective! I'll put up a quick comparison pic later.

If anyone out there reading this has a Revo Stormtrooper with two right thighs, let me know if you want to trade a right for a left.  :)

So Leia is dropped from waves 7 AND 8 now, YakFace is reporting. I'll still order a case of Wave 8, but there's very little from 7 that I want now.

Gah, the Gabriel character is so frustrating. This is the same guy who locked his entire congregation out of his church when everything hit the fan, right? Shouldn't he busy asking for a tetanus booster from stepping on that nail?

Been digging the last few episodes, actually. Great character development. Sad to see Noah go, but it was a gruesome death. Makes Beth's death feel even more pointless though. I was wondering if there would be any consequence at the group letting Deeanna's son die, and after all of the Carol/Noah stuff, now I know. The Ricktatorship showdown should be good. Eugene's balls growing at Grinch-like levels on Christmas Day was awesome, as was Abraham going postal while those worthless goofs just stood there watching. Motherdick!

Blew my mind when they pointed out on TD that Carl's fence jumping chick was the same girl from Too Many Cooks.

Next up for me: Ewok Village during Double VIP Points next month

Finally scratched that one off the list this afternoon at the local LEGO Store. Double VIP Points started this weekend and last until the end of the month, and I had $50 built up from previous purchases throughout last year. So I got the set for $200, and got another $20 in VIP rewards that I'll save for either the Slave I or Sandcrawler.

Oh, and if anyone hasn't snagged the Ewok Village yet, the cashier said he had heard rumors of a retirement in the near future...

I haven't bought the house yet either, but that Kwik E Mart is tempting. Hard to gather the money when there are multiple large Star Wars sets every year. Love that they included the secret vegan garden on the roof. I appreciate the Jasper reference too, but that really should have been a minifigure instead of a sticker.

The minifigs though, I'm all in. Simpsons Series 1 is the only minifigure set I've completed 100% so I need them all.

Yeah, I might not be able to get to 3PO until this weekend but that will leave me more time to take some detailed pictures of everything, and in better lighting haha.

There was some other stuff from the Stormtrooper I wanted to photograph too, like the extra hands and blasters. I think Revo's E11 is more accurate, since aren't those supposed to be fairly small? I'll see if it fits in Chewie's hands, which should be a good indicator. Revo Stormie also comes with one of those longer rifles the Sandtrooper uses, though I don't have that figure so I can't compare the two rifles.

As for sculpt, yeah I like the Revo one better. Seems to be based off of ANH's design, whereas the TBS is based on either ROTJ or a combo of the two. Seems like all of the other Japanese Stormtroopers use similar sculpts, I know the Medicom MAEFX Stormie looks just like the Revo.

Excited to open 3PO too... one of the stock images shows you can pull the limbs off (actually something that happens a lot with these Revo figures, they fall apart easily haha) AND he comes with a mouse droid. I'll throw in some pictures of Vader too, his accessories are neat and the lightsaber a lot more thick and sturdy than the TBS offerings. The cape just makes it tough to pose.

Revoltech Stormtrooper Album

I'm obviously not much of a photographer, nor does my apartment make a good studio, but here are some quick pictures I snapped. Mostly some comparison shots with the Black Series Stormtrooper, and a size comparison with the few Black Series figures I have.

With the limited time I've had to mess around with the Stormtrooper, the worst part is that the arms are too short and the legs are too long (as you can see it's REALLY tall, almost as tall as the Revoltech Vader). Now that I've been able to compare everything, the Revo Vader might be a bit on the short side too. That one took about a week of posing to grow on me; the cape is definitely wild, but the sculpt is amazing.

I'll open 3PO (sorry for the typo on Twitter :-[) tomorrow and snap some pictures too. Kinda wishing I had snagged the Black Series R2-D2 when I was seeing it everywhere so I could snap some comparison pics, but I'll just have to wait for the Revo R2 to get here next month.

If anyone has specific requests for pictures (poses, etc.), let me know and I'll try my best to add them when I photograph the 3PO, I kinda half-assed this album.

Picked up the following sets yesterday:

- T-16
- Stormtrooper Dropship
- Royal Guard/DST Battle Pack
- Snowspeeder Microfighter
- AT-AT Microfighter
- Hoth Han minifigure (had a coupon from the LEGO Calendar, any Star Wars purchase at a LEGO Store got him for free; this is the same brown coat one offered during May 4th a few years back)

The Microfighters were particularly frustrating buys because TRU had a BOGO last week but I couldn't find any stores that stocked the AT-AT. In fact, I got one of the last ones at the LEGO Store too. Didn't know that one was so hard to find? ???

Next up for me: Ewok Village during Double VIP Points next month

I liked this week's episode a lot more than last week's... interesting to see that half of the group wanted to trust the guy while the other half didn't. Could become interesting later.

Flare zombie was cool, and a genius way to get light into that situation. But who shot off that other flare, and why did Aaron totally freak out? Guess that will be answered at some point. They're still in Alexandria in the comics, and set up a trade network with other safe zones, so I could see them spending a half season clearing out trade routes and meeting new people, setting up Negan's first TV appearance. They could easily do a Governor style TV arch with him that could easily use up 2 seasons, but at that point they would still be almost caught up with the comics.

Apparently there is some backlash over having gay characters kiss, and people are boycotting the show now. ::) Homosexuals are gay!

I don't HATE the design, I'm just having a really hard time getting excited for the movie.

I dunno, I still think VOTC/Early Bird Chewie is one of the best figures Hasbro has ever put out. Really looking forward to this one, unlike a lot of rehashes.

HLJ has the Revoltech C-3PO in stock! Bundled my preorder with my Revo Stormtrooper, so in a week or two I'll have some new goodies to go with the Vader.

I'll probably pass on the movie sets but I liked what I saw from the Spidey comic stuff. Pretty pumped to be getting Carnage and Miles Morales in a $12.99 set, and Sandman and Green Goblin looked nice.
