The mother of Jake Lloyd, the actor who played Anakin Skywalker in "Star Wars," reportedly told police her son has schizophrenia and is off his medications, according to a Wonderwall report. Lloyd, who also led police on a high-speed chase, reportedly attacked his mother and Indianapolis police were called. "Jake is not a violent person," his mother said, refusing to press charges. - AP

I remember him from the Burbs and the guy Taylor Negron kills in The Last Boy Scout (lost Taylor Negron this year, too).

And we just lost Tony Longo, also from The Last Boy Scout. That's three inside a year. Poltergeist Curse Pt II?

I always liked Tony Longo, so many memorable cameo roles.

Looks like Dick Van Patten just made this thread too. I guess "86 is Enough"  :D

I apologize for that.

I picked up the Goliath/Nadia deluxe set last night on eBay so I now have a complete Virus collection.  :)

Now I gotta go back and watch that dang movie again.

I picked up a complete set of Clash of the Titans figures last month including the Weapons for a little over $100 shipped.  There are only four figures (plus another Perseus with Pegasus), but its a nice little addition to my vintage corner.

NICE! I assume they are all loose?

I have been looking to pick up a carded set off eBay but they are pretty spendy. One day hopefully. Did you get the Kraken too?

I'm also currently hunting for a MISB 70's JJ Armes action figure. Man, that thing was cool.

I picked up an all-chrome T-1000 (Cop Uniform) at TRU today over lunch, so I now have 2/7.  :-\

Also saw the 5th Element figures for the first time, they look better than I expected. Think I might have to grab those at some point too.

1. Tusken Raider
2. Jawas
3. Emperor's Royal Guard
4. Dengar
5. 4-LOM
6. Zuckuss
7. Bib Fortuna
8. Snowtrooper
9. AT-AT Driver
10. Hammerhead

I totally forgot about the 6" Ahsoka until your post jogged my memory.  The prototype got shown at Celebration, right?  I changed my Ahsoka vote to one for Grievous.

Grievous is coming too according to JTA.

Seems like the best idea would be to simply vote for a character that is unlikely to be made otherwise, at least anytime soon. Cantina/Jabba's Palace goons - I'm looking at you!

I don't think I want to take my kids to see any movie that is going to induce anyone to sob for 1/3 of it. We can get enough soul-crushing sadness out of regular life, thanks.

Eesh...Charleston is one place you probably don't want to be screwing around in right now.

Rick Ducommon...such a small celebrity I don't even have a link.

People keep mentioning this "Burbs" movie that I am pretty sure no one saw. I remember him much more from his stand up routines back in the 80's. Funny guy.

Plus he shut down the power to Nakatomi Plaza, so that's pretty cool.

Yeah, I have seen a bunch of the Wave 2 guys at B&N, but that store seems content to sit on merchandise forever with no efforts to clearance anything.

I think the ship has sailed on wave 3 too. I never did see a single wave 2 figure at Target around here, nor Walgreens either.

I think I will probably cave and get these eventually, but no rush.

Awww, crap. I was hoping to skip that line but that set is too cool for school!

I picked up what I assume is a TRU Exclusive Frozen T-1000 from the new T2 line today. That was the only new figure they had out. I was sort of wavering on this line too but it seems well done and manageable enough. I also really dig the individualized card backs.

What's the deal with the all chrome one, Rob?

Thanks! Unfortunately that's not one of the ones I need but I appreciate the offer.

I don't think these are too bad, not the greatest quality but I enjoy smaller lines.

Good stuff.

I don't buy any death they don't show on screen, and not even all of them they DO show.

Except Meryn Trant. That ****** is dead, and how.  :)

Myrcella? Probably but you'd think the ship would have turned around or something. What are they supposed to do with Trystane now?

Stannis? I def don't think so, it would have been perfectly easy to provide closure on that but they obviously chose not to, as with the Hound. I suspect Brienne will try to use him as some kind of bargaining chit with the Boltons to get Sansa back.

I would speculate about Theon and Sansa going all Thelma and Louise but I don't care much about either of them at this point. I do seem to recall seeing a guy and a girl jump off a cliff into a snowdrift in FROZEN though, so i guess there is hope.  :D

As for Jon, I absolutely do not think he can be permanently dead. Not so much for any of the other reasons mentioned but simply for the fact that his parentage is such a huge mystery underpinning the whole backstory of the series. If he's dead, it becomes totally irrelevant whether his Mom was Lyanna or his Dad was Baratheon/Targaryen. And I just think that it's not irrelevant, it's the complete opposite. It has to matter. And it only matters if he's still alive in some way, shape or form. Just my two cents.

Was that a CGI body double for Cersei?
