Found the whole wave with PZ-4CO, Goss Toowers, the Guavian Enforcer, etc at Walmart last night. Grabbed all of them, including the repacked Inquisitor. I wish I had as much luck with the 6" stuff!

By far the best episode of the season....every episode should have been like this though. This was exactly the kind of chaos I was expecting to see. The scenes at the perimeter with the army dudes firing wildly at the horde were great I thought.

I really think it would have been a great twist to have the junkie eaten alive right in front of his Mom on the other side of the hospital door. Like Glyn and Everybody Hates Chris in the revolving door on WD last season. Missed opportunity there.

The stuff with the army guy was really stupid though. Like that dope is going to worry about the Salazars when his whole unit has pulled out and the city is in flames. If he was that pissed, why not just lie to Travis about where to go in the first place? And why shoot the girl and not the dude who sliced up your arm?

So what exactly did Mysterious Black Guy need Nick for in order to escape anyway? How exactly were those junkie skills going to come in handy? I assumed he was just going to throw the kid at the zombies at some point to distract them, but apparently not.

Kinda hard to work a boat into the end there and NOT have it feel like a rip-off of the Dawn of the Dead remake, but I'll give them a pass for that.

I loved how the ex-wife who was NOT EVEN A REAL NURSE managed to work out the pathology of the infection in a few hours and it took Rick and Co like 4 seasons to get there. And now she's dead! (Pretty quick to give up there too seemed to me, didn't she want to take a few minutes to write her son a letter or something? What was the rush to eat a bullet?)

I guess on TD they confirmed there would be a Season Two and with the same cast too. Rats.  :-\

Is that photo color altered? I can't imagine the sky really looks like that from the surface?

Finally picked up something I have wanted for awhile now...a complete set of Warpo's Legends of Cthulhu figures, including the 2 Kickstarter exclusives. They are just as terrific as I imagined they would be...cannot wait for the 12" figures and playset!

It's been a huge disappointment really, not so much because it's that bad, but moreso because it had the potential to be SO good. And it's just very mediocre, to the point of me not even caring much any more. They picked a really bizarre assortment of characters...as I mentioned before i think it would have been more interesting to have had a more typical American family that people could easily relate to. And yeah, I totally agree they fail to focus on the most interesting aspects of the outbreak.

I kinda hope it doesn't come back at all, but if it does they have to focus on totally different people next time.

Hasbro's eBay store is running some good deals starting today through 10/7...the Wampa is set is like $30 with free shipping, clone troopers for $13.50, etc. I grabbed a couple more clones for kicks.

6" Black Series Special Forces TIE Fighter Landing at TRU

So glad they put this up on their website promptly so I could get the SKU # and call around instead of having to drive to every store in the metro area fruitlessly.

Oh wait, they DIDN'T do that.  ::)

Thanks, weakeners...

Dammit, now this one makes me mad. I JUST BOUGHT this thing from SDCC, and it was NOT cheap.  >:(

I swear they don't want people to be able to collect ALL their figures for some reason.

I picked up a spare Ezra last night to open. He holds the light saber well. Also noticed the design on his back was different than the other one I had open, but I know that was a previously established variant from the 3-pack, so this may not be a third iteration.

Glow in the dark would have been cool too, but yeah, I'll get this.

I found Wave 2 of the BAW TFA figures at Walmart today and snagged the Ezra and Kanan I needed.  :)

Why did Madison get the gun lying on the street...all that risk to see what's outside and she doesn't get anything useful?

I know right?! I was thinking the same thing. I guess she couldn't figure out how a gun would be useful in the zombie apocalypse. These people deserve to die!

This thing had a lot of potential but ultimately feels like a big let down. I feel like they are treading way too much water for a six episode stint. They could have saved a lot of time by just focusing on some normal family without all the ABC after school special stuff. It's not like showing all that crap made the characters more endearing in any way.
