I picked up the Aliens Ripley/Queen/Powerloader set from Kokomo Toys tonight for $25 shipped. Haven't seen this in any stores yet and according to Super 7 the MSRP on this thing is $30, so this seemed like a good deal.

Happy hunting!  :)

Got this over the weekend but the front corner of the box was all crushed. 2nd damaged item I got in as many days. :(

I just saw TRU has added this item to their website though, so hopefully I can find a nice minty one in store someday. I am dying to open this thing but I need at least one MISB.

Yep, back to stupid form this week. They figured out that once you're bitten there is no coming back, but don't realize that sound attracts walkers?

At first I thought the orphan girl just jumped out the window and the walkers were following her, but I guess they heard the piano music twenty floors up?  ::)

They did a piss poor job packing that shopping cart. I could have gotten a hell of a lot more in there. And there was no room for the Mexican snack cakes?

Did the gang guys just trust that they would come back with loads of Oxycontin? That whole exchange made little sense to me.

How come the relatively healthy looking dad had to walk the plank but not the half dead gringo in the lawn chair?

Did Nick's dad drive into traffic to kill himself? That seemed to be implied but I don't see how she would possibly really know that. Maybe he just spaced out.

The Strain returns this weekend, I think. It's a better show. I mean, it's still chock full of stupid, but at least it has characters worth a damn.

I'm all in on The Strain, it's my favorite thing on TV. I know there are better shows, but none that I enjoy more.  :)

I actually liked the FTWD premiere way more than I thought I would. Which only underscores my feeling that everyone else not named Nick or Strand is completely worthless and irritating on this show. It was so nice not to have to sit through their unending, inane emotional problems.

Surprised to read this is already out in Canada...maybe they are beyond the litigious grasp of the Mouse up there though.

I just saw Phasma on the pegs for the first time last night. Since the price had dropped to $10.83 I went ahead and bought it. Nice figure.

Cleaned out the last few remaining figures of interest at the area Targets today...Kylo, Guavian, TIE Pilot, etc. nothing left now but the "Final Five" : Zuvio, Finn, and Resistance/Snow/Flame troopers. Good luck getting rid of those guys!

We lost our 13 year old pug Trixie on Friday.  :'(

She would have been 14 in October, was still going strong, albeit less active the past few years. It happened while we were on vacation with the whole family too. Huge bummer, but still the same time thankful she was with us and not locked up in a kennel several hundred miles away.

The kids were really sad at first but seem to have bounced back quickly, bless 'em. The wife and I are still pretty broken up about it though, we got her shortly after we moved in together and she was there for our wedding, two daughters, and survived two major surgeries along the way, including the emergency removal of her gallbladder. (We are still paying for that one)

Happy we got to enjoy her for as long as we did, trying to focus on that and not the end. Also helps we still have another dog Howie we rescued a couple of years back who is still going strong.

But yeah, most upset I've ever been over losing a pet. Just a fixture in our lives suddenly gone...

RIP girl.  :(

For crying out loud, if you know who it is, just say it. I hate that cagey bs. You just spoiled the surprise anyway no matter who it ends up being.  ::)

Finally picked up FN Stormtrooper since he was 30% off at the Disneystore. Looking forward to getting something new.  :)

I thoroughly enjoyed it.  That series was everything Super 8 failed at.


I was planning to watch this but I thought Super 8 was terrific, so maybe this is not for me.  ???

If five different companies can do 6" figures I don't see why another company can't step up and make properly scaled "SW vehicle collectibles" that are actually representative of the onscreen source material.

Hasbro can keep making their ****** under scaled Nerf toys, and we collectors can get stuff like The Ghost and Kylo Ren's shuttle that actually go with the figures we buy. WIN WIN!

I'm just spitballing here, I know all the factors that would combine to make this highly improbable. But I would be more than happy to shell out $100 or more for a quality Ghost, even if I had to have it shipped from Japan.

A couple of Targets here have hit 50% off clearance, so I have started grabbing cheap Kylos for some additional Knights of Ren. Also some extra Guavians because I just love those dudes. For $10 a pop I don't feel as guilty about that kind of stuff.  :P

Got this today in the mail from HTS...impressively fast. What a cool set, will probably leave in the box as I have with previous years' exclusives, but it will at least go on display. Melty Vader helmet rocks socks!
