Is Jedi Defender going to be part of the gladhanding strokeathon known as "The Pulse Initiative"?

If you're sitting around the campfire with your buds chowing down on Lassie, it's probably just as well you take off that white collar, yeah.  :P

At this point, after everything they have been through, shouldn't they just go ahead and shoot any weird new people that show up out of the blue right off the bat? Why wait around to get eaten/raped/sacrificed?

Saw Kingsmen tonight...enjoyed it thoroughly, except that the wife and I were forced to sit in the very first row, which was brutal on the neck.

BBTS has some shots and preorders up for Reaction Classic Trek Kirk!

I give 'em credit, that's ballsy for a first wave.

There is plenty they can excite me about that has nothing to do with Ep 7, so I am hopeful. New Rebels figures are a must, as are glimpses of the 6" figures we know are coming but have never been shown before, like 3PO, Boushh, and the Emperor. No reason at all for them to hold that stuff back. And against all hope I am quietly praying for confirmation of The Ghost in 2015.

Also excited to see all the new NECA and Funko Reaction stuff, since they still make toys you can buy in stores.

On another note...we're already at Wednesday before the show and no new leaks yet? Hasbro must really have their stuff under lock and key for a change.

Sony brings Marvel into the Amazing World of Spider-Man

I'm not sure what that means? Amy Pascal just got fired so this seems like it would be up in the air to some extent now...

I guess the Troop Transport is starting to hit @ TRU the Hunt begins.

Looking forward to the Ezra/Kanan set...the TIE Fighter/Stormtrooper set looks like simple repacks of the single carded figures though. That seems like an odd choice so early in the line. Would rather have had some Imperial Officers in there...

Well, I so, SO called that one a few weeks back. Still sucks to see [that character] go, although it has seemed clear for awhile now that [his/her] story has been pretty much told. The writing was on the wall when [he/she] was just cast for another show too.

Top 5 places you do not want to space out:

1) Job Interview

2) Public Restroom

3) Performing major surgery on the operating table

3) At the controls of a Malaysian Jet Liner

4) In a house that has not been cleared after the zombie apocalypse

Hurry up and get to Arlington, peeps!

McFarlane Toys is holding a fan vote - Which character from AMC's The Walking Dead do you want to see in series 9?

Yes, been a lot of grousing about that poll aroumnd the internets. When it first went up you could vote as many times as you wanted, and from day to day there would be wild swings in the first place candidate. Just rife with impropriety. They eventually took it off line and tried to clean the thing up a little, but it still seems dubious.

At any rate, I voted for Beth and it looks like she and Lori are the top vote getters. That makes sense because it would be a real long shot to get any of these characters made otherwise going forward. (T-Dog would be nice too, but not as good as Beth. Lori would just be straight up boring. Did she ever even kill a walker? Never liked the actress or her character, so this is not one I am pining for)

Oh, and they also announced a slew of new TV Series and Comic Series figures recently. Dale Horvath (at last!) was confirmed too! Also they have another flashback wave in the works with Plaid Shirt Rick, Flu Walker, and Bandanna Grave-Digging Daryl.  ;D

My vintage Dagobah and Death Star playsets seem to indicate that foam does not age well. It also bonds to plastic and is heat sensitive. I would be reluctant to put that stuff anywhere near my figures, but maybe that's just me.

Lucked out and found the rest of the Rebels 2-packs I needed last night @ Target, so I am all set as far as MOC and openers. I can now resume hibernating until the Imperial Troop Transport starts showing up.  ;)

Awesome Jeff. That commercial was indeed an abomination. Whoever thought that would be a good ad to run during the Super Bowl should be clearing out his desk this morning.

Second dude who should be fired was whoever picked out Katy Perry's wardrobe. Way, way too many clothes.

And then Pete Carroll. Oy vey!
