Yeah, it's a better value with the pack-in figure to be sure. I went ahead and dumped my loose one on eBay in favor of the Target exclusive, if/when that ever shows up.

I grabbed a mintier carded Gree tonight, to replace the busted up one I got previously. Not sure I want to open the spare since I have the original CW figure laying around loose already. Maybe good custom fodder though.

So Rayna evolved into the chick from "Nightbreed"?

Funny I don't recall any Inhumans with thorns growing out of them. And the only one who could teleport was Lockjaw. And they all had eyes.


I liked seeing Fred "Hunter" Dryer (where was DeeDee?) back on TV for five more minutes. And the play against Hydra was pretty enjoyable, if a bit silly. Not liking the subterfuge with Fury's toolbox though. Haven't we had enough "mole on the team" BS to put up with already? It's played out.

I also liked Fitz giving fanboys the world over a stiffy when he told Skye her heartbeat was "inhuman" - so coy, you writers!

I don't feel like I really missed this show all that much after all. At least we get SIF next week.

Picked up 3 more Jedi Temple Guards at Target over lunch. I may have a problem... :P

Finally found some of the new BTILC figures at TRU this afternoon...picked up Jack, Gracie and LoPan. No sign of the other guys. Interestingly, they each rang up at $6.99. Pretty great deal there IMO, hope I can find the rest at that price too.

Got Otachi yesterday, incredibly underwhelming. For $70 this thing should be a LOT bigger. First figure I've been disappointed with in this line.  :(

I saw the 2 new building sets at Walmart this past week, which are basically the Prison Gate and Tower set split into 2 with some exclsuive figures thrown in just to piss you off.  ::)

I also saw they re-designed the blind bags. How about a new wave instead?

ARgghh! Was not expecting spoilers in the toy thread!  :(

Picked up 2 more Jedi Temple Guards at Target over lunch, along with an undamaged Plo Koon.

Surprised the AT-DP Driver has been as hard to find as he is...I've only seen him once.

#CleanCutRick  ;D

How the hell did those candy asses manage to stay alive for the past whatever-months? Carl nailed it - they are weak, and even worse, stupid.

I counted at least 3 people that are simply going to HAVE to die for this thing to work - Deanna's douchy son, his pal from the front gate that Daryl took down, and the mysterious front porch jealous husband that apparently wants to kill Rick for answering the door with no shirt on, LOL.

I could probably include the freaky backpack girl in that group too except it seems like Carl is doomed to fall in love with her so that will probably keep her around for awhile.

Loved Carol's interview...Junior League - hilarious. Throwing in that blurb about missing her big dumb husband, totally disarming. Yeah, nothing to fear from her folks. She's a people person!  :D

So the whole of NoVa (that's what we call Northern VA around here) was evacuated? There sure are a buttload of walkers hanging around, despite their claims otherwise. Seems unliklely they would be making a 53 mile arc around the compound with all the undead roaming around.

So WTF was that girl doing outside the camp? I'm guessing she is meeting someone outside and feeding or passing info to them. Maybe the strange woman in the house outside the gate that Carl glimpsed briefly. How did she get back in though?

Who took Rick's blender gun?!?!

What happened to Deanna's architect/professor husband?

WTF are they gonna do with Daryl?

That last one is especially interesting since there is no blueprint from the comic to go by here. I just don't see him hanging around long.

I still feel like a lot of of those non-EU figures have a decent shot of getting made eventually, other than tzivvzt and cane adiss, who are probably just too damn weird/costly to produce. Shame because those are the two I'd be most interested in now that we're getting Mosep.

Since I heard Walmart was becoming relevant again I ventured a stop this evening and was rewarded by picking up another Chopper, Kallus, and Stormtrooper figure. Nice to see they are getting back in the game.

Also found another Plo at Target earlier in the day but again he had a slightly crushed bubble, just like the first one I found. Fragile stuff...tough on us MOC guys too.

Nice, guy is not going quietly into retirement.

Someone start a search party for Sean Young!

Oh snap, that's a tough one. He was great on the Fringe in his twilight years...

So Hera's dad is this dude?

Huh?  Cool.

Yeah, Good ole Cham...I always assumed but nice of them to confirm officially.

I wonder if that was supposed to be Fulcrum's actual voice in the last episode or it was supposed to be electronically masked in some way. Was definitely not Ahsoka or Bail's voice.
