Hasbro would probably say "Hey, it's more screen accurate without wheels!"

They are not killing the line. Just the cardback.

Does this imply a new DPCI # or do we think the current one will carry over for the Vader/Ahsoka set?

Kent Brockman: Professor, without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for our viewers to crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?
Professor: Yes I would, Kent.

Big time changes from the books in last night's episode.  I can already hear the book purist ******** ranting and raving.  Ultimately, I believe the books and show will end up in generally the same spot, they just have to take different paths to get there and I'm ok with that.  I think I know where they're going with Sansa, Brienne and Pod, but it's going to be tough to watch if they keep certain book aspects and apply them to Sansa.

Naah, i don't think they will do that to her. I think that was more specific to the particular person and situation. Having Sansa in that role changes things significantly, IMO.

But yeah, they are really all over the map making changes.

I hate to keep asking stupid questions every week, but I am having trouble figuring out Littlefinger's interest in wedding off Sansa to the Boltons. He doesn't seem to be getting anything directly out of the deal, and you'd think he would hate them for killing Catelyn. He implies revenge in his brief conversation with Sansa but WTF is she supposed to do there? She's probably the last person in the whole story who would be capable of evening that score. Plus doesn't he have the hots for her too?

What a waste of a perfectly good potential nude scene for Natalie Dormer.  :(

Loved FrankenMountain!

Yeah, I find the early Target clearance to be an interesting move for a number of reasons. Were there that few made or did the time just run out on these with the coming Sept relaunch? How long until Walmart and TRU follow suit? Will we ever see these show up at places like 5 Below or TJ MAXX?

It certainly was a brief window where these things hit. I'm sure they will re-pack most of the Rebels figures in future waves, but I can definitely see some guys like the Jedi Temple Guard falling off the radar for awhile.

Picked up a slew of Rebels figures from Target today for $2.98 a pop. I have no idea what they are doing, but this is a great deal.

That's an impressive array there, Rob...well done.

I saw the Karate Kid figures for the first time yesterday at TRU. Not anything I'd consider picking up, but they looked pretty decent.

Check your Target stores as it appears that this assort. is on clearance at many locations - down to as little at $2.98 each.

I can confirm this...I bought an X-Wing Pilot Luke last night for $2.98. I thought it must be a random fluke but maybe not.

I have only seen this at one store, and that was the only figure they had, but it's definitely got me interested in checking around now.

Dang, this would have been a good way to get out the canceled R5-P8 droid from TCW.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Celebration Anaheim 2015
« on: April 20, 2015, 03:07 PM »
Yeah...I mean, what are you really going to spoil at this point showing that first wave of 6" figures? Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren's costumes were all on display for everyone to see up close and prsonal, and we know who is playing those parts, so what is the need for all the secrecy? Except to be annoying?  ;)

Who was the fourth name Arya kept reciting? I got Cersei, the Mountain, and Walter Frey, but I could never make out the last one. LOVED seeing Jaqen again...dude is one of my favorite actors in the whole show.

Interesting turn of events for John.  Can't imagine Ser Allister is going to be much fun to be around whether he is in charge or not. Still would have loved to see him take the offer and become John Stark, Lord of Winterfell though.

I'm sure fans were happy to see Bronn again too. He and Jamie are gonna be like Tango and Cash, medieval style!

I loved seeing Cersei's uncle dissing her too...guy's got a point. WTF is Tommen doing all day anyway?

Not sure I followed why the sudden need to kill Brienne at the tavern. Just didn't want her following them?

Agreed there is a lot going on right now. The stuff in Mereen really seems to drag. (apart from the 5 seconds of Drogon) Man, it was stupid to execute that guy. What happened to his fair trial?

I'm just glad that Wampa set has not been canceled. I still think it's a bad idea not to pack that in with the TaunTaun set. That speeder bike is DOA now.

Those aren't new... they've been showing them off since NYCC last October.

3.75" Mission Series Rebels Ahsoka and Rebels Vader are the only figures being show live for the first time...  so far.

Any links? Haven't seen those yet...

Work, what work??  ::)

That was a kick ass panel to start things off right. Desert planet of Jacoo!

And that new trailer....OMG, I can't wait 8 more months!

Vader's melted helmet is my new wallpaper. Total badassery!
