Saw Overkill last night with Forbidden, pretty crushing. The boys can still bring it.

Just saw this was already picked up for a second season, which is surprising and great. I figured it would just be a one-and-done miniseries.

Mikey - I've been trying to catch up with the comic storylines - have you read them all?

I have questions but I guess I can't post them without providing inadvertant spoilers.

I just like that it's an actual sequel and not a "re-imagining" AKA rip-off.

And it's ALWAYS good to see Bruce "The ORIGINAL StarKiller" Beefcakener getting some work again. (That's a B5 reference for those of you unfamiliar with the best sci-fi series ever on TV :) )

Very cool, but I'm not driving all the way to D.C. just for a 10 minute sneak peek, or whatever it likely will be.

Hope they tread carefully with any backstory, sometimes it's cooler the LESS you know about a character. (ahem, Boba Fett)

Christ, they have mid-size vehicles listed for $31.99!  :o

That is just ridiculously over-priced, makes TRU look cheap in comparison.

Think I'll pass on the $95 case assortments of figures too.

Mind giving us the store?

I think he said in another thread that it was a Target.

Really stoked to find this wave sometime soon. Going to be a challenge though, because there is not much room for new product at most of the stores around here...

So how do HTS and SWS not have basically unlimited amounts of inventory? I honestly don't get why either site should ever sell out of anything, at least as far as new stuff. They get first dibs on everything and have a direct pipeline to the factories.

I half-suspect that this is some kind of marketing ploy to limit the initial offerings in an attempt to jack up consumer interest.

Bought Shaak Ti from this wave. The story how I got her is funny, really...

Being that I was at the mall with lots of time to spare, I thought it over and finally decided to go back to buy it. When I walked in (about 20-30 minutes later), I found a fresh case of Wave 4, sans the astromech droid, on the shelves. There was only 1 case. I thought it was funny that Embo and the others had been untouched, but the astromech was gone. Either way, I immediately dumped the notion of buying another Asajj, and it took me at least 5 minutes to decide whether to get Shaak Ti or Embo. Eventually went with Shaak Ti, because I tend to lean towards Jedi characters. 

Awesome - some fortunate timing on your part!

So what store did you see these at and in what state? I'm on the hunt for these, but I am trying to be judicious with my runs.

I'm going to guess they probably won't ring up if yout ake them to the register though.

But if you showed them the tag, they'd have to honor that price, right?

Yeah, some great stuff in last night's episode, mostly the dismemberment and gut smearing scene. Just brutal and awesome. Seemed like kind of a stretch that the rain would expose them so quick, but I guess they had to come up with something.

So what's up with the Asian kid? Will we see him again? I kept thinking they would cut back to the black guy and his son too sometime last night but I guess that arc is over.

Always good to see Maria Covarrubias getting work too. (Blond chick, old dudes like me remember her from her role on the X-Files)

Meh, I prefer to think of it as Adam P mentioned this morning, as a better-than-average episode of Droids, rather than a below average episode of TCW.

The Hutts were by far the best thing out of the episode. I really liked the non-morbidly obese one in particular.

I enjoy Todo in principle, but Seth always sounds too much like Seth to me. And after seeing him in action again, I can already tell I am going to be disappointed that the figure's legs won't combine to form the uni-wheel.  :(  That would have been wicked cool.

You guys saw this AT A TARGET?!?!  :o

That is literally stunning to me. Our Targets around here are woefully behind on TCW vehicles...they can't seem to even sell through the first wave, much less get to Waves 2 or 3.

I'll buy all these again in a heartbeat for $19.99 and promptly return my overpriced TRU versions.

I find it easy to justify the TRU prices because they are crushing every other retailer right now as far as getting stuff FIRST, which is extremely important to me. Bird in the hand and all that.

A rare Sunday score...picked up the same two TCW Deluxe sets Pete mentioned above courtesy of TRU. (Tactical Droid/Cold Weather Clone) They also had the Obi-Wan and Mando sets, so must have been the same case assortment Jeff described.

I don't think Vos is on this week.

My bad, I got confused with the recent teaser clip.

Maybe some Todo tonight?

I watched it night before last via On Demand and thought it was great except for a couple of things.

First, how are you going to wake up in zombie world and not start asking about a million questions? I mean, you're not even curious a LITTLE how it all started? I get that the dude is not talkative but come on bro, get some backstory.

Second, I hate to get on a high horse, no pun intended, but did they really have to make the wife such a callow b*tch? First, you cruise out of town with your kid but don't even stop by the hospital to pick up your injured husband, and worse you start banging his best friend after what, 2 weeks? Wow, don't let any moss grow on that thing lady.

It sort of turns the whole thing into an absurd farce, like some twisted play on the Odyssey, where the husband defies all manner of obstacles to reunite with his "loyal wife" only to find she started nailing his best friend 5 minutes after he was out of the picture.  ::) Not exactly epic.

About now I am just hoping she and her dumbass lover get ripped apart and eaten, leaving the kid and hid Dad to ride off into the sunset.

More zombies, less love triangle...

Will have to work hard to top the ending of Dead Set.
