Yeah, it was pretty demoralizing after all of the preseason hype. Very frustrating to see a total lack of halftime adjustments too. And completely abandoning the run game...ugh.

The zone defense was a surprise to me too, but that seems like the perfect blueprint to shut down this offense.

Steelers looked great though, and were definitely more prepared to play. Should be a great season for you guys. I can't say I share the optimism on the skins, a lot of their problems are coaching and talent related, and you can't fix that stuff this season. It's a very uneven roster they way they have built it right now.

Stumbled across some ReAction figures at Tuesday Morning of all places, a few Uhuras, a Karate Kid, Snake Plissken and Jack Burton.

They were only $2.99 each so I bought them all. I have a nice batch of cheap extras between the various Target and Barnes and Noble clearances and now this.

For that price, I'm happy to stockpile these guys.

I picked up a loose Moon Boy from that SDCC set off eBay for $10 and got him today. Did not realize this was a flocked figure - very cool!

I really want Devil Dinosaur now though...

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors

I don't think we'll see more than one wave of figures in any scale. I don't think we'll see that second wave of 2-packs with that sweet 7th Sister set either.  :(

I'm feeling doubtful on the A-Wing and Imperial Speeder too, but not sure how those cases break down so hopefully I'm wrong.

I just can't shake that disappointing memory from last year over how little stuff there was. Maybe they do more this year though.

1. Why would anyone give KMart an exclusive when they are on the verge of bankruptcy and are closing stores left and right?

2. Why would KMart even want an exclusive when they are on the verge of bankruptcy and haemorrhaging cash? (Spell check failed, sry)

That said, cool figure and I'm definitely getting one if I can find a KMart somewhere.

Got mine today...thanks Paul!  ;D

I really like this guy, fits in well with my other animated CW astromechs.

Mad props to Paul for hooking me up with the Halloween-themed R2-B00, he is a first class guy!

I didn't miss Chris and Travis at all.

The mom and daughter storyline is vaguely interesting but Strand seems wasted so far this season.

Feel like there is a palpable lack of chemistry between Nick and Lucinda, but she is bound to die anyway I'm guessing.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 1

I found this wave yesterday at 2 different Kroger grocery stores.  ;D

Sabine and Kanan are indeed single-packed. Sabine was missing from the first store but I found her at the second, THANK GOD.

Seriously, I am relieved to have found these two, especially Sabine, as it's one less thing I have to worry about on Farce Friday.

They are both great figures BTW, at least as far as I can tell from inside the package. Great sculpts, crisp paint apps, Sabine in particular is just striking.

Happy. Now just need those 6" guys...

It looks like a fan favorite Mandalorian from the CLONE WARS animated series will be returning as a featured player on REBELS season 3.

Nice! Seems like a good shot to finally get an action figure of her.

Wild weekend of games and overreactions from announcers. (Start fitting Prescott and Wentz for their HOF jackets now apparently)

Looking forward to a good showing by the Skins tonight, outright win or even a close, respectable loss. (No shame in losing to the Steelers IMHO)

I just don't want to lose on a missed field goal or some insane comeback, 'cause it seems that's how most of the games went yesterday.

Mostly rooting for NO INJURIES...

Good luck Jesse, hope we get a good game!

I saw one of these at Wizard Con this weekend...for $110.  ::)

Nice to examine it in hand, looking forward to picking it up one day.

Saw the new Han last night at TWO different Walmarts while out hunting for 6" Rogue One figs.

First time I had ever seen him on the pegs. $10 and change at both stores too.

Nevermind, when I went back today the prices were now down to what Brickpicker was showing. They must have done it sometime after I left yesterday. Good to know I can rely on that site again.
