Has anyone seen/picked up the Kwik-E-Mart set yet? Is it even out? We don't have Lego stores around here so I am SOL on this one.

Thanks for the offer again!

I grabbed ahsoka's droid off ebay last night for a reasonable price.

What's the actual name of this droid? I need one too!

Nice! I still want an opener of that Slave I.

I bought a carded Yularen at a local comicon last week for $5. Great fodder for custom Clone officers...

John, Arya, Sansa, Rickon, Bran, Daenerys, Tyrion, Varys, Sam, Grey Worm. At this point, it's easier to name the people I DON'T want to see horribly mutilated/disemboweled/burned alive on this show. What a wretched universe of filth and depravity...they may as well subtitle the show "Or How the Stark family gets crapped on repeatedly with no recriminations"  >:(

I don't think I've been so mad since the Red Wedding. You just can't do Sansa like that...that was super crappy. My wife and I were both shouting at the screen "someone DO something!" but Theon is a useless POS and I guess Brienne is content to just kick it back at the inn with Pod. Ugh, what a horrible downer ending.

And I guess Baelish is pretty much straight up using her just to position himself as Warden of the North. Some uncle.

I did like Tyrion and Jorah bonding over their Daddy issues.

After all the anticipation, it was hard not to feel let-down by the 5 minute Sand Snake fray. I was hoping they would have been a bit more bad-ass. At least kill Bronn or something.

Tommen is utterly and completely worthless as a human being. What a *****.

Hahahaha...that's nuts! Ultimate buyer's remorse.

The nearest one of these Go Games kiosks is over 70 miles away...probably not worth it for me. But tempting.

I think Ovechkin's legacy is on the line tonight. Go Washington!

I guess he failed to back-up his guarantee last night.  I missed the game as I was at a concert so I'll have to watch the 'tape' later.

Picks for the Finals:  Rangers v. Blackhawks

Meh, he scored, so he's off the hook. Even the NBC Analyst gave him props. For a change, Caps fans can't really put the blame on him, or Holtby, in this series. Just too much possession time for the Rangers.

I thought it was terrific too...except for the last 5 minutes where there was some kind of bizarre commercial interruption that pre-empted the show. I'll have to go back and watch it On Demand now. It cut back right during the scene when Ward was jacking up that Hydra guy.

Anyway, great stuff. Glad they culled the herd a bit, getting to be too many characters on this show. Super happy to see Raina gone especially, I really disliked her character. I didn't have the same antipathy towards Gordon and Skye's mom, but they needed to go too.

Totally agree about the imminent danger...I thought for sure Bobbi was going to buy it. And I was convinced Mack was going to touch one of the crystals and turn into an Inhuman, after all his grousing about aliens. ("No-Eyes" - LOL)

Great that the offed Kara, even better that dipsh*t Ward did it. I guess it would have been too much to ask to see his tired ass put down finally too. Maybe next season. God, I hate that ahole.

As soon as they intimated a long-awaited Fitzsimmons hook-up, I knew one of them would get iced somehow. Sucks, I am a Fitzsimmons 'shipper and I want them to hook up.

Also awesome to see Cal as Mr Hyde finally. That was pretty cool. Nice of them to go Tahiti on his ass.

I don't know what to make of the fish oil thing. Since when are Terrigen crystals water soluble anyway?

I'd like that Dooku's pilot droid for sure.

It's way past time for 5 Below to get another SW figure dump anyway...I'm getting sick of seeing the same 10 Anakin TCW figures every time I go there.

Yeah, his Dad is a real peach too. That was quite the heartwarming reminiscence about dear old Mom.

I loved the ruins of Valyria...I gather it was destroyed in some sort of epic Pompeii-type disaster? Is that Drogon's home away from home now?

I was disappointed by the Stone Men though after all the lead-up though. They just looked like guys with oatmeal on to me. I was hoping for something less human.

I hope we don't get 5 more episodes of "What Jon Snow is up to on the boats" because id prefer to see that wrap up sooner rather than later. I can't help but wonder what the White Walkers and the Army of the Undead are up to norht of the wall. Are they just kicking back and waiting for winter to arrive or what?

I liked the scene with Sam and Stannis. Some good info in there, especially that bit about The Children hunting with dragonglass.

Curious what Varys is up to now too.

Received Horizon Brave, Reactor Blast Gypsy Danger, and Rubber Baby Otachi today from They are all outstanding as I've come to expect. Brave actually comes with spring loaded projectiles!

I picked up both the vintage Darth Vader and C-3PO carrying cases at a local comic and toy show today and they are both in great condition, all the original stickers and everything. Looking forward to filling them up later tonight.  :)

ABC Renews Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter!

Great news! I knew the ratings were pretty decent for both but you never know about these shows with high production costs. I look forward to more great synergy with the Marvel cinematic universe...

I noticed Target was selling the 20" Jakks Pacific Zeb through their eBay store so I went ahead and picked him up. That thing has been totally MIA at stores.

Now if Hasbro would just put out that Deluxe Hero Series version with the helmet, I would be good to go.

Finally caught it the other night and walked out of the theatre with no complaints whatsoever. That's pretty rare for me. I just thought everything was well done.

I do think they should have had Coulson on board the Helicarrier since he was the one who had it commissioned to be rebuilt in the first place. Dude is pretty much walking around out in the open all over so I don't know how people like Hawkeye and Widow who still have SHIELD connections wouldn't have realized he was still alive by now.

I liked seeing Linda Cardellini again as Mrs Hawkeye. And I guess I am a moron because i had no idea that Scarlet Witch was being played by one of the Olsen twins. Wow. They finally did something to earn some actual acting cred.

Also feel stupid now because I had no clue Klaw was in that movie. Did I blink and miss the guy in red suit with a cone hand? Or did this have something to do with the Wakanda/Vibranium conversation? We're not talking about that Aussie douche with the brand on his neck I hope?
