Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Avengers (and sequels)

Are you saying CA:TWS and GotG were just "alright"?!?

Winter Soldier and Guardians were really good, but Iron Man 2 and Thor 2 left a lot to be desired, IMO. I felt AoU fell below the first two but above those last two. Maybe I was too hyped up for it, or maybe I was expecting someone to be offed. I dunno.

Just got back. It was alright... nothing special though, which keeps it consistent with the rest of the Phase 2 films IMO. It almost felt like there were too many characters, and unlike the first, they couldn't find enough screen time for them all.

Yeah, Better Call Saul is AWESOME. It took me a while to "get" the season finale but the rest of the episodes are all good stuff, especially if you've seen all of Breaking Bad. Plus, the official Twitter retweeted me once, so I'll always go to bat for the show.

My wife and I did start watching House of Cards on Netflix and really enjoy that (we just watched Episode 1 of Season 2)...

All downhill from there, but I'm the only one who thinks this apparently. I thought Season 3 was trash too.

I really like this case assortment too, because I can skip Wave 7 entirely. The non-Rex Clones I'm not crazy about, but I could probably trade them for Imperial Navy Commandos from Wave 7 or something.

Damn... I was on the fence about Maul because I don't want to open the Prequel floodgates, but I guess that makes my decision for me.

I see Luke is pre-sold out too, which stinks because I wanted one and never saw them go up.  :(

Got a postcard in the mail today hyping May the 4th deals that will be taking place online and in LEGO Stores. Spend $75, get a free Admiral Yularen minifig (ANH version). Free LEGO ANH poster with any purchase (the same one they posted on Facebook a while back. UCS TIE Fighter officially on sale. "Select sets" on sale, a list of which should leak out sometime soon if it hasn't already. Judging from years past though it will be lame stuff like magnets.

My Vader preorder from HLJ came in, but I decided to get the Stormtrooper too, because why not? Once that processes they'll be on their way to America.

Really glad I decided to order this Vader too, it does look great. I had no idea the cape would be so flexible, I thought it was going to be plastic like the Revoltech version, and hard to pose. Glad to see that's not the case.

Also, if I were to buy 6" figures at all, I'd buy the Japanese ones.  They're vastly superior, so why not?  Pay the extra, and be happier.  Piss on Hasbro's $20 meh.  But I'm still refusing to jump scales, no matter how obvious Hasbro makes it that they want me to jump scales.

Yeah, the Japanese figures rock. I posted some comparison shots of the Revoltech 6 Inch Stormtrooper and the Black Series 6 Inch Stormtrooper a while back, and did anyone else see Jayson's comparison of the Revoltech and Black Series R2-D2? Pretty sad. I still buy some Hasbro 6 inch stuff that we probably won't get for a while from Japan, but if we do, it's gone to a storage bin with old POTF2 stuff.

I dunno, I figure that I have the extra cash to spend, and if Hasbro doesn't want it, I'll gladly give it to one of the other companies that does.

On the heels of finding Yoda last week, I also picked up a TIE Pilot at TRU and "Boosk" from Amazon. Haven't gotten to open Bossk yet, but the TIE Pilot is a good figure.

John Stamos, who will act as a producer, is also slated to guest-star, while discussions with original cast members Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier, and Lori Loughlin are ongoing.

Maybe Felicity Jones' character is playing a relative of Mon Mothma? They kinda look similar (and I think Jones is too young to be Mothma from that time period).

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Celebration Anaheim 2015

Based on Phruby's pics, all Hasbro had to display was older Black Series stuff... you know, the stuff that isn't in production anymore, or never even showed up on pegs due to terrible distribution. Why even bother?

Glad I caught Not-JediMAC's post taking them to task. I'd even be happy with cookie cutter responses recognizing the problem or confirming what kind of lines we'll be getting in the future.

Reminds me of the Watchman, which sucked.

I wonder if Batman or Superman will bang a chick while Bob Dylan plays in the background?
