We lost Leatherface... :'(

Stormtrooper is In Stock and available online at the Disney Store!

I just gots mine, no way this thing does not sell out.

I was pleasantly surprised by the scenes with Carl and Porch Dick's son. I figured they would go the easy route and just write him as a sulking time bomb but they seem to be taking a more interesting path. Him reaching out to Rick up on the Wall was a good sign, I thought.

Those sewer walkers were excellently gooey and sick. (LOL, "Deanna-got-her-groove-back Walker")

On Glenn, it seems clear that the whole uncertainty thing was completely intentional now, and they are being deliberately vague about his fate. That's a risky game they are playing IMO. You can't string this thing along too far just to reveal he really was eaten, because that's just jerking the audience around too badly. I considered him maybe showing up at some point as a walker, but they already played that card with Sofia, so I don't see them doing that twice. Still holding out hope for the unlikeliest of escapes. It didn't look good for Rick in that RV either but he magically made it out ok so you never know.  ;)

Forgot about the always interminable Fall break. Sorry Badlands, you will not fill the gap.

After quite a bit of cyber and in person stalking, I was finally able to snag the GameStop Exclusive Carol today. What a great figure...amazing likeness too.

Still on the hunt for Tyreese...

Scored the White & Blue X-Wing at WalMart on my way home from work this evening. They had a couple cases of them on the nightly pallets.

The laser canons do not have the same problem on this release that the initial release has/had, so the fully assembled ship looks great w/o the need for "adjustments".

The helmet on the Poe figure is NOT removeable - which I found odd, considering that they did that for the other version. But then I remembered that the same base figure is going to be a armor-up exclusive release at Toys R Us so that's why they did that - cause they were going to be able to double-dip on releasing that sculpt.

I saw a case of these on a pallet last night at Walmart too. That was the only thing new they had though.  :(

Yeah, whoever had the idea of taking the starfighter dogfight scenes out of space and down to the planetary level was a genius. Simple idea, but powerfully effective. Those scenes look amazing...

Don't poke your eye out, Rey!

I found Zuvio and Guavian at a Target in Minneapolis, but no sign of Poe or Phasma.  Anyone know what wave Hux is shipping with? I keep coming across pictures of him, but I don't think he's in the wave 2 case.

Hux should be in Wave 4 I believe, along with Asty and the regular FO Snowtrooper. Wave 3 is the TIE Pilot and Finn in Resistance outfit "Resistance Trooper"...

I grabbed one of these at Target today and got $42.50 off with the coupon - not too shabby. Already got my money back from Gamestop for the first one I got.

I will say that when I offer the Best Offer option on my auctions, I will often take into account where the person lives who is making the offer. I offer Free Shipping on all my auctions, so selling something for $10 to a guy in Maryland or North Carolina is a lot more attractive to me than selling the same item to a guy in Alaska. So in some cases yeah, I might not be able to make the $$$ work depending on how far the item has to travel, but I am always upfront about it with people.

I actually just ordered one and it was listed as "In Stock" and estimated arrival next week!  :)

And here I was almost thinking I had missed out when the preorders sold out. Big whew!

I'm still mad about last week's episode.  >:(

Why do the writers hate Fitz?!?!

LOL, who the hell is Heath?!?

I don't bother to learn the Redshirts' names on this show until they've lasted at least 10 episodes or so. Nicknames are way more fun...ala Hardwick's "Porch Dick".

I would guess he is the angry Glasses dude with Michonne? You guys are probably right...that makes more sense because we already know that bunch got to the gate.

Thanks! I am hoping to pick one up at Target with that 25% off coupon...too good a deal to pass up.

General Grievous arrived today...marvelous figure, but the leg broke off mine somewhere during shipping.

Update - I was able to reattach the leg by heating up the ball joint and jamming it back in the socket. Seems fine now. The arms are a bit loose though, tricky to hold a pose.

Anyone got the DPCI # for this thing?
