I saw the new NECA Big Chap figure at TRU yesterday, the one with the frosty white dome. Looked pretty nice.

I think the Horror stuff looks pretty great, think they will do well with those. The Firefly figures aren't atrocious, but man, those BTTF figs are not good at all.

I'm kind of on the fence with the Pulp Fiction stuff, love the cardbacks and the figure selection, but kind of hit or miss with the execution. Gimp is a must though.

Strikes me as odd to have 1-2 figure waves too, guess they are just testing the waters. Hope they have more Escape from NY stuff in the pipeline.

Was wondering when these would hit retail...I can't wait to start hunting down the sure to be elusive storm trooper. Getting closer...

I have unlimited streaming for only $7.99/mo - best babysitter EVAR!

Here is another shot of the HD selection, I'm not sure McMetal where you saw that HD wasn't supported.



Huh, all i see is the red X but I will look again when I get home. We had a free trial a few months ago and there was no HD content available for streaming through our Wii.

I like it, but mostly due to the fact that it is clearly more animated style as I had hoped for. I didn't catch all the glaring errors like Pete did, but he makes some good points. Skimping on articulation is one thing but some of that stuff is just plain lazy.

Figures that Lego is already leaving them in the dust by having a more interesting selection of characters in their first 2 sets. Where's my Twilek chick or that weird purple dude?

Picked up a loose Darth Vader's Star Destroyer Playset. It is missing the hatch door, the gun, and most important to me the top part of Vader's chamber. That said it was less than $10 total. Hopefully with some patience I can get the other pieces cheap. I am, however, the type of person who is willing to pay a little more total if I can pay in "installments" so I am happy.

I might have a lot of that stuff for you...let me check when I get home. I have doubles of the SD playset along with the Ewok village.

Ugh, I am glad they found an outlet for the episodes, and I don' mind ponying up for the service, but Netflix DOESN'T DO HD!!!

I have literally watched every single episode of this series in pristine High Definition, which it really demands because of the animation style, and now for the last 13 I have to revert back to crappy SD? Not cool.

I realize there will probably be a Blu-Ray disc release ultimately, but it still sucks not being able to see these for the first time as they were meant to be seen.

How about some con-exclusive figures to celebrate the last 13 episodes now, Hasbro?

If he's a Jedi, where's his lightsaber? Even a half-assed late bloomer like Luke could build one of those things!

Just kidding, I assume that would be a dead giveaway.

Sorry, this is getting a little confusing, are we still talking about ReAction stuff?

If not, maybe that other stuff merits a second thread? Sounds interesting but very perplexing with all the different scales, companies, etc.

Kanan meh. Looks just like that tool Saw Gerrera from the last season of Clone Wars. Not a Freddy Prinze Jr fan either.

So........I'm thinking you are 1) not happy; and 2) disappointed in Carl.   ;)

LOL, yeah, they kinda went the other way, didn't they?

It was still terrific I thought, I'm fine with the other characters getting their spotlight next week. I just wonder how they will rotate through the various storylines for the rest of this season.

Carl was pretty frustrating most of the episode, but I think everything ended up in a good place by the end. Rick gave him his due calling him a man, and Carl realized he's not quite the ultimate bad-ass he thought himself to be and maybe his dad is worth something to him after all. I guess the zombie apocalypse doesn't preclude teenagers from acting like, well, teenagers.

Still think it was super-crappy thing to throw Shane in Rick's face like that though. Ouch.

Loved the Michonne stuff, although it was a little less obvious what was going on with her. Nice to see the pre-Walker pets. Great mini-herd slaughterama too. Glad she got the happy ending she deserved there at the close.

TD was excellent with Greg Nicotero and Danai. I'm a little worried about next week though: surprise cast member guest? Uh-oh. Don't die yet, Beth!!!  :-X

I'm ready!

As long as we get some quality time with Daryll, Beth, Maggie, Glenn, and Tyreese, I'll be happy.

And hoping Carl will be patient and sympathetic with Rick after getting brutalized by the late Gov.


 ;D

Yeah, it has improved over the course of the season to be sure. I find it to be a pretty entertaining hour of tv, was definitely geeked over Deathlok. Not sure how long it will stick around ultimately, but there a lot of stories left to tell.

I don't know how long I just spent looking at all those pics, but it was worth it.  ;)

Just magnificent, truly. I see so many things in there I want! (One day...)
