Big ups to Matt for helping me out with a spare Seripas in exchange for a Ponda Baba. Plus he was cool enough to throw in a free A-Wing pilot just for kicks.  :)

Thanks bro!

Yeah, I can't disagree, $14.99 is the MSRP but TRU has them for $16.99 and my local comic shop has them for $17.95 each, so not many good options out there.

I did cave and buy the B&W Rick Grimes variant and the exclusive B&W Walker/Lurker 2-pack today. (That last one is not available @ TRU BTW)

After looking them over again I just decided these are too cool to pass up. Detachable limbs? Removable organs? Face splitting action? Oh hell yes.

May try to see if I can pick up the rest on the cheap via eBay. I am actually more interested in the TV versions, but I guess those are the second wave slated for November.

Finally saw these at TRU, pretty sure I will be unable to resist these. They just look too cool, and it's a small line I can easily accommodate right now. I just wish the pricing was better, $16.99 is a little steep, IMO.

Has anyone spotted these anyplace other than online or at TRU? I guess they are probably too gruesome for Walmart or Target, but I was hoping some comic shops or Hot Topic might carry them.

I turned it off after it was 7-4 in the eighth.  ::)

STL has consistently choked so hard in this series there didn't seem to be any point to keep watching.

I have to say I'm sorry I missed it. Sounded like an epic collapse.

What's that on Bossk's head? That ain't no SW accessory!  ;)

(Awesome pic!)

Yeah Pete, I saw Eeth Koth on the pegs today at Walmart actually. LMK if you want me to try and snag that for you. That's awesome you are starting to see some more Wave 10 hit. No such luck here.

AMC just renewed them for Season 3, gotta love the quick pick-up. Both episodes this season have been ratings gold apparently.

I agree, up with Darryl, down with Shane.

I still want to know why Half Blood Prince is not available On Demand or via Red Box. It's like the only way to see that movie is to frigging buy it. Stupid.

Yeah, I came across remnants of 3 more cases of Wave 10 last night, surprisingly at a Walmart here. First time I have seen new TCW figures there in literally months. El-Les sure seems like it has some pegwarming potential. They really should have packed Season 3 Ahsoka in his place for this wave. Another missed opportunity.

I'm not really all that worried about finding an extra ultimately, but it is irritating me in the short term because it is keeping me on all these costly, time-consuming toy runs I would prefer to avoid. Like Pete, I have pretty much given up on ever seeing Wave 12, so Seripas was the only thing I have really been looking for.

Dressel, PM sent. I found you a carded Ponda Baba this morning so lmk what you think.

Think I'm going to take a forced hiatus for a while. The whole thing is just too frustrating right now, it would help to step away for a bit I think.

Maybe it was all the cold medicine I am taking, but last night's episode seemed pretty dull. Not bad, just not quite as gripping as the opener. It's pretty much a foregone conclusion the kid is going to live so all the drama seems sort of like wasted energy, plot-wise.

I fear they are going to spend at least another 2-3 episodes on Carl, the lost girl, and the people at the farm, and really I just want them to wrap it all up and get back on the road to Ft Benning. I feel like the show is best when they keep moving and are discovering new things/people.

I like all the farm people, esp the fat guy who I will always remember as the weird dude from the X-Files who could make his eyeballs vibrate. I like that they all seem pretty cool and there are no heels/foils to worry about in that group. I can't help but wonder how they seem to remain relatively unscathed out there though? They didn't seem to have a lot of weapons, defenses, etc. Kind of odd.

Not getting a good feeling about the black dude's long term prospects on this show. The crazy people always seem marked for death.

Next week looks awesome, Shane blasting zombies at the high school.

Yeah, Seripas is flat out impossible to find. I feel lucky to have even stumbled across one. I cannot help but find it irritating that JTA is carping about how they've seen "more Seripas' then they can count". I wished I lived in your magical universe, buddy.

Feast or famine, always feast or famine.

Spotted the Search for Luke Skywalker, new vinty-boxed Taun-Taun, and new vinty-boxed Landspeeder all at the same Target on an endcap. They had at least 2-3 of each, but regretfully I did not verify the pricing. (sorry)

Not interested in any of them but I did let another local guy know who is keen to pick these up so if I get more info I will post.
