Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread

Saw Mad Max in 3D this week...loved it. My only complaint is that the constant high octane action sort of spoils you and when the movie slows down for even brief interludes it seems interminable.

The dude with the guitar was nuts!

You don't think he can pull of a super-intense psycho?

Well, i tend to think of him as a short , jumpy redneck, not as a taller, darker brooding guy. I haven't really seen him outside of WD though, so his range may surprise me.

Hmm, Shane as The Punisher? I dunno, I guess I don't quite see it, but maybe he can pull it off.

Well that didn't last long... go figure Cody, the only one I'm not buying, is still available though.

Yeah, they were popping in and out of stock last night...I caught Leia and Cody, never did see IG come back around though.

In honor of the impending reboot, I decided to go ahead and jump in on this long defunct line. I was always on the fence, but it took me awhile (ok, 7 years) to commit.

I picked up 16 of them in 2 lots off eBay and have about 6 of the variants/exclusives left to pick up to round out the set. Not a huge financial commitment, thankfully.

Found 2 full cases of the Cody/Leia/IG-88 wave @ Target over lunch.  ;D

Great assortment...will be opening tonight.

That's gotta be some kind of SDCC Special Edition packaging...

#$%^&* Stannis! "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?"

Not a great episode for kids, that's for sure.

Between barbecuing Shireen and Meryn Trant getting his freak on with that poor tween, the gross-out factor was running pretty high. Blecchh.

I would just as soon not see any more stuff happen with kids this season. I'm looking at you, Ollie.

I see now why Brienne had so much time to film the new Star Wars this season. Hope she gets some more screen time in the finale.

The stuff in Mereen was pretty interesting. Why did the Sons of the Harpy stab her fiance though? I thought the clear implication was that he was their leader? (Hence the late arrival) And what's up with Jorah touching Dany? Is she going to get greyscale now too? Or is she immune somehow?

Drogon going off at the end kicked ass, but I was actually hoping for even more carnage. Was surprised that those spears would penetrate his scaly armor like that. He would really come in handy fighting the Army of the Undead up north though.

Happy endings for all next week!

Picked up about 8 Bilbos on clearance at Rose's today for $2 a pop. Looking forward to customizing a few more Hobbits...

There is an "Arcade Version" Predator with Gold paint apps coming out soon too.  ;)

I picked up 3 more Wolffes at Target last night, but no sign of any more Dooms.  :(

Was just reading last night about how the band Mastodon were cast as Wildling extras in Sunday's episode. Saw a cool shot of them posing with John and Ed. Just another reason to love this show!

I realize there are a lot of things people like about this show...the character development, the plot twists, the deft use of nuance and misdirection, but for me it just doesn't get any better than the last 20 minutes of last night's episode.

Giants fighting zombies?!? Please and thank you!

That was frigging excellent. John and the Thenn fighting side by side, white walkers with armor, army of the undead, Valyrian steel FTW...just great stuff all around. That was way more intense than a WD style walker attack...those things could really move!

The only other thing I even remember from the episode was Tyrion and Daenerys' chat, which was also all kinds of awesome but for different reasons.

Oh, and Arya got a stylin' new haircut.  :D

I saw the Taxi Driver figure at TRU yesterday. Of all their properties, I just don't get this one. Just doesn't seem worth the effort for one figure.
