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.

Was that Edward James Olmos as the Director? Nice get.

It seems to me that the "real" SHIELD is whoever Fury bequeathed the legacy to, and that was clearly Coulson. What have these other schmoes been doing the past 6 months? Certainly not fighting Hydra or saving the world like Coulson's team.

I spied a couple of leftovers from Wave 3 at Target this morning and was able to snag the variant Inquisitor MOC. So I went ahead and cancelled my HTS order.

I'll double check the spare I have from my Wave 3 case - but I may have one available as well. In addition to the Wave 3 Ezra Variant, which apparently has a slight variation on the logo on the back of his vest, I haven't opened one yet to know for sure...

I believe the Ezra variant is actually between the 3-pack version and the Wave 1 figure. There is nothing different about the Wave 3 figure itself except for the date stamp/COO.

I bought SL Wave 3 Inquisitor (variant version) and Bly off HTS for $10 shipped.

What did the one guy whisper to Aidan before he took off?

That was a brutal exit, but Noah's was even worse. Don't bring the limpy gun on the next run!

Totally called it on Dr Feelbad. Figures he couldn't have been a ditch digger or some other non-skilled trade. Nice to see the kid and Carol connect after that last conversation too. I'm guess it will probably be her or the wife that actually ends up offing the guy, but Rick is certainly up for the job.

Screw Gabriel. It was bad enough when he was just worthless, but he has escalated to pure douchery. If someone comes at me warning me about the Devil and Angels of Light though, I'm probably taking that with a few grains of salt. No doubt Maggie is going to take care of some business now too.

Saw a ton of Wave 2 figs today at various Walmarts while out looking for the new 6" stuff. Picked up a couple more JTG's for the platoon.

Was on vacation this past week and missed the live airing, which is a real rarity for me. Caught up last night though and it was about what I expected. I figured there would be a few episodes like this, letting things settle before they start building again. I don't want them to rush into the comic storylines too soon, we've only just gotten over the Governor and Terminus at this point.

That scene with Carol and the kid was off the hook...she just broke that poor kid. Dark stuff indeed. I love where her head is at though.

The scene with Rick reaching for the gun was about more than just jealousy I think. I think that was a protective instinct which will play out more and more over the coming weeks. It seems clear to me her husband is very controlling if not abusive. The way he cut her off at the party when getting the drinks, the possessive arm around her after she says hi to Rick, not to mention the way he referred to her last week as "my wife" and not by name. This is not a good guy. (Sucks that he is the only doctor though)

The W brand was definitely interesting. Curious to see where they go there. The Buttons-feast was some pretty quality splatter too. I'm glad they find ways to sneak that kind of brutality into episodes like this. Poor Daryl can't catch a break. He sure loves him some spaghetti though!

The scenes with him and the gay guys were great...sort of typifies what Deanna was talking about at the party, people from different walks of life coming together to form a community. Nice to see him sort of soften up at the end there. Dude needs his chopper back.

I had totally forgotten about Gabriel. I have to wonder about him too. And it's hard to blame Sasha for being disgusted with everything because it really is a bizarre kind of dreamworld those people are living in. Freaking pasta makers?!? Oy vey. Get up on that tower, people!

I was hoping we would get more on that girl and her excursions outside the wall but maybe next week. I think that's who took Rick's gun.

Meh...just bought the house for $160 off cl.  Guess I'll have to get this now too.   :)

From where?

I need one too...time to get crackin'.

Our TRU finally put some single carded Rebels figures out again and I was able to snag 4 more AT-DP Drivers and 2 more TIE Pilots.  ;D

I think I'm good with this wave aside from any other Jedi Temple Guards I might happen to stumble across.

Curious when/if we will ever see that Rebels Obi-Wan teased a few months back on that poster.

I agree another new figure would have been preferable. I'm tempted to try hunting these down at Walmart instead.

Sabine has a variant

That is some great scoop! This is gonna be a tough one to track down unfortunately. At least with the Ezra variant there were plenty of those TRU multipacks laying around to pick through. I haven't even seen any of the new 2-packs lately outside of that one week they showed up at Target.

I swore to buy every JTG I saw on the pegs, and so far I'm up to 7. I'm army building the hell out of these guys.

I wanted to do the same with the AT-DP Drivers but that guy is impossible to find around here.  :(

There are just too many companies running separate lines for this franchise. It would be next to impossible for someone wanting to jump on board at this point to catch up. But there is definitely some cool stuff out there.
