Haven't you read the comics McMetal? I figured you must have with your knowledge of the exclusive comic figures.

Yeah, but it's been so long I couldn't remember. I went back and read up last night though, now it all comes back.  ;)

I don't see the problem with discussing the comic stuff in here, the shows veers wildly away from the comic plots generally, so knowing one thing doesn't necessarily spoil the other.

I think it would have been cooler if Bob had been bitten and those dbags had eaten his infected leg. (Yes, I know everyone's infected but something about being bitten seems to hasten the process)

I also think Gareth is full of crap about it not being personal. There were plenty of dead people back in Terminus they could have eaten. Like his Mom.

Where was Carol going when Daryl caught her sneaking off?

Why was the guy Tyreese beat not bruised at all? (Good call on that BTW, didn't think we would see him again so soon)

What did Father Gabriel do? Guessing he just locked the church and wouldn't let anyone in went things went bad?

WTF was going on with Bob before he got nabbed? I was absolutely sure he had been bitten or scratched at the Food Bank and was sneaking off to run away or kill himself. He seemed pretty distraught outside the church there. Weird.

Glad someone is on the way to rescue Beth!

Star Wars Rebels / Re: TRU Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Battle Pack

Our local TRU finally stocked these today (8 total) so I picked up an extra to open since I had a 20% off coupon and the one i ordered from their website arrived crushed. I had to look through every single one to find one with decent paint apps. The biggest trouble spots seem to be Ezra's eyebrows and the visor of the helmet.

Anyone picking up the building sets? I'm debating them seriously, would prob help if I saw them up close. I guess TRU is starting to get them in...

I picked up the Phantom Shuttle today.  I saw at least 2 of each of the new Rebels vehicles when I was in the store.  Unfortunately there wasn't the sweetheart deal of $7 and change that was reported on YF.  :(

What's all this about the $7 deal? Didn't see anything on their front page?

In case you didn't hear, 32 concept images from EVII leaked onto the web late last night. Very cool stuff - I was blown away when they hit my mailbox.


This has now been removed completely from their website. Way to go, Target...don't let anyone get your top secret exclusives.  ::)

Not sure if this is news, but I have been seeing these figs at Targets and WalMarts, usually near the trading card sections they keep near the registers.

Any Predators?

I have seen those reports too but all the stores around here have out is %^&*( bobbleheads...

I picked up all 3 "flashback" figures from Walgreen's today, first time I have seen them here. Daryl is the version from the motorcycle deluxe set, which had not been released single carded before. Michonne comes with new accessories, a walker-quarium with 2 pet heads. The RV Zombie appears to be more or less the same as the previous version.

Would be nice to see the next TV wave hit soon...

That was an unbelievably good premiere! FIVE GORY stars all the way!!!

So much going on:

The blood trough was a stroke of genius. I kept thinking to myself during that scene "Baseball is a TEAM sport!" LOL

Carol V Tasha Yar was great, I'll take Carol every time in that fight. Damn right let her get eaten!

SO GREAT to see them bash the Joker's head in first too. I didn't realize until TD aired that this was the same hippie kid with the lame girl from last season. Well played!

HTF do you even threaten to strangle a baby? Jesus, that guy was a POS...he deserved every face-crushing blow Tyreese rained down on him.

Really disappointed we did not get closure on %^&* Gareth though. I'm sure since he is getting his own action figure we have not seen the last of him either.

Getting the group more or less back together was great to see, esp Rick and Judith and Tyreese and Sasha. Aw, and Daryl even hugged Carol!

Yes, that was definitely Morgan at the end. Who is leaving the carved X though? The people that took Beth?


Also loved the parade of splatter and the detail given to the zombies this season, as Nicotero noted on TD, they're starting to decay and decompose more noticeably now. Seem a lot more skeletal.

Great stuff!

Barnes and Noble had a big new display stand up today with the various lines in there - BTTF, Escape From New York, Firefly, Nightmare Before Christmas, and for the first time I have seen on pegs - the Universal Monsters and Horror figures. It was hard to choose between those last two but I ended up going with the Monsters. Between 3 stores I was able to pick up 7/8 of the figures, but no one had the Invisible Man. :(

I'll probably go back and get the Horror figures soon enough, they were pretty damn cool too.

Late to the party, as I missed the initial airing, but caught up last night finally. I liked it...didn't love it, but mostly that was because I found Ezra's character to be really annoying. I'm tired of street smart punks. It would be refreshing to see them have a kid who actually acts like a kid for a change.

That aside, the action was pretty solid and I liked the rest of the characters, esp Hera and Sabine. It will be a crime if we don't get an unmasked version of her in the toy line. I loved all the vehicles, the AT-DP and proto-speeder bikes, etc, the Ghost was really cool as expected (love the interior cockpit done in the Falcon motif) and that new Imperial Transport is begging to be made.

I do find the animation style less appealing than Clone Wars, mostly in the realization of the human characters. The backgrounds and other elements looked great though. (Ugh, terrible job on the Wookies though, IMO, they looked like they were made of chocolate)

Also agree this is more of a true kiddie tenor than the darker stuff from the Clone Wars. I don't have a problem with that, as long as it doesn't get too silly or nonsensical.

Overall, a very worthy effort and I look forward to seeing where they go from here out!

The highly anticipated sixth and final season of the Emmy Award-winning series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the 13-episode season dubbed "The Lost Missions." In these eagerly anticipated episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed.

Didn't see this posted here, but great news to get confirmation on this set!

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: NYCC 2014
« on: October 10, 2014, 08:47 AM »
Yeah, I've been so busy at work this week I haven't had time to catch up on all the news, but it does some like a pretty fair showing.

I still think it's a little odd we haven't gotten a glimpse of 6" 3PO, seeing as how he has been rumored for so long. Makes me wonder if they are struggling with the VAC metal apps or something.

No new Rebels or Clone Wars figures teased for this line?  ???
