I finally got around to picking up a nice MISB Cap'n Peg Leg from the Matchbox Fighting Furies line off eBay. I don't really have much interest in the rest of the line or the kooky outfits, but I have such vivid memories of this figure from my childhood.

You got a lot of value for $3.99 back in the day!

One of my Cadet Ezra/Kanan 2-packs had a Kanan with two right hands  >:(

Are there any noteable differences between this figure and the single-carded version of Kanan?

I just compared mine closely and no distint differences that I can see. My single carded version has a subtle paint application on  the eyes - a ring of blue around the darker iris, whereas in the 2-pack version it is much harder to make out. But that may just be factory sloppiness or whatever.

My luck continued after work as I found a very nice Hera 2-pack for my MOC collection at Target this evening. This allowed me to open one of the more raggedy ones I bought previously, and man, what a nice set. Hera is very slim but she has a cool little blaster and fits nicley inside the Phantom. And I love having a Stormtrooper Commander to ride point in the ITT.  8)

I finally got lucky and found the new Imperial Troop Transport @ TRU today. Also found remnants of the new Missions Series stuff at a different Target and picked up 2 more TIE Pilot/Stormtrooper 2-packs and another Cadet Ezra/Kanan 2-pack.  :)

I finally found listings on for the 19" Zeb from Jakks Pacific, as well as the Hero Series 12" version with funky helmet. (I guess the latter is part of Wave 2 and due to hit this month)

Have been on the lookout for info on these since they were rumored/teased @ Toy Fair. Now let's get the gals out! And Chopper!

I found all of the new Mission Series sets at Target over lunch today.  ;D

On the down side, nearly all of them had some level of box/bubble damage, but 2 Heras are 2 Heras, so I'm not complaining.

Now if I could just find those pesky 6" guys...

No reason they can't show off a 6" 3PO or the new Rebels Obi-Wan that was pictured months ago on that poster but never referred to since. At least, no reason related to the Ep 7 embargo.

Why is it ever since "The Fringe" Kirk Acevedo is always cast as an ahole?  :(

That was a terribly weak backstory for the other SHIELD too. Transparency really? Maybe Hunter should have reminded those dopes that if Coulson hadn't found and flooded the city that Hydra would have taken it over. Or asked them WTF they were doing when Whitehall and HYDRA were kicking ass and taking names across the globe the past few months.

Time for Fury to pop back up and collectively bitch-slap those morons.

I had a similar thought on Rick/Pete fight but it seems like he was losing at times, and I can't see him letting it get that close is all.  He should've just beat Pete solidly, IMO.  They could've shown him struggle to not kill him a number of ways.  Have Pete come at rick with a shard of the window even?  Make him out to be even more or a dillhole.  I just hated him having any real one on one advantage.  Drives me batty.  Guy beat Shane!  And that was a long time ago when Rick wasn't as hardened.

I'm curious how the finale will set up next season.  It's gonna be interesting for sure.  I figured they'd have established the new threat more by now honestly.

The problem is that once they introduce the "new threat" they're done. They're out of material. They are very close to catching up to the comic now. The next bad guy is the last one. I think they need at least another season of "Farmer Rick" type filler to let the comic forge ahead into some new territory.

And I haven't seen any casting scoop for that role so I am guessing that person will not be in the finale at least.

I saw remnants of the Bossk wave at 2 different Targets last night...both had a Chewie and TIE Pilot pegwarming. Pretty pissed that I missed them twice.

Hmmm, that is some interesting stuff there. I don't see them trawling out high quality SA figures for $7.99. Guessing these will be 5 POA, let the rioting commence.  :P

The vehicle assortment is intriguing. What can you really get for $10? A mini-rig? Even without the pack-in figures that seems a bit low. I could see the Class I Deluxe being the current scaled down ships like the Slave I, etc. Or maybe a mini-rig with 2 pack-in figures like they were doing near the end of TCW. What I'm really hoping for the Class II Vehicle is a return to properly scaled 3&3/4" compatible stuff.

Black Series 2-packs could be intriguing, but they will probably see this as a way to re-package pegwarming crud so it will end up being a bunch of Han/Greedo packs hanging around again.

I look forward to seeing this report showing up on the other sites' front pages in a week or two.  :D

I hated this episode. I thought the writing was atrocious, especially pretty much everything Rick said/did. He just seemed completely out of character. WTF was he thinking telling Deanna about executing Pete? Rick wouldn't do that. And he certainly wouldn't go all crazy Rick waving his gun around like that at the end. He's way past that. And NO WAY IN HELL does a weak dope like Pete go toe to toe with Rick like that even for a few seconds. This is the dude who destroyed Man-Mountain Tyreese. He's got chunks of guys like Pete in his stool, for chrissake.

I kept thinking what Carol told Rick when they arrived: "You were wrong, but you were right".

He should have taken the moral high ground with Deanna, who is basically revealed to be just like Dawn. Go ahead and rape/abuse our women as long as it keeps things running smoothly. What kind of idiotic self-loathing woman, a former congrsswoman no less, would get on board with that? It's asinine. Rick could have made that obvious but he bungled that whole conversation.

How would Nicholas have known about Rick's gun? And why would he even care/need it?

Sasha is an idiot. Keep wasting ammo, babe, that's just what "they" are hoping for by herding all these walkers towards your gate. And WTF was she looking at when she saw that woman running? Her act is growing tiresome.

I didn't really get the whole thing with the woman strapped to the tree. What were the remains by the fire? Not hers clearly. Was she with someone else and they got jumped? Is that the implication? She was supposed to be walker bait?

What I did like: the girl with Carl turning out NOT to be a mole/psycho/whatever. Just a normal kid. Also liked Glenn getting heavy with Dick-o-las.

Agreed it was weird that Deanna never took the time to talk to Glenn or Eugene.

Picked up the Imperial Transport from HTS. Very excited to get this!

I had been waiting for this to come back in stock all week...thanks! I got two.

Wish the Sabine set had been in stock too.

No, I won't be watching either way, I recall Preacher being about futuristic vampires and i think they already made that movie a few years ago.

I just don't like this trend of casting against type.
