It felt very true to the novel but a couple of little details were changed that I thought wouldn't really have needed to be changed.  I liked the way they filled in some of the research...what took chapters in the novel was easily handled in a few short lines of dialog without seeming forced in.  And it was great to finally meet Bill Weasley even though I've always thought they should have introduced him and Charlie more in line with how they were in the novels.


They JUST introduced Bill?!?! WTF? He appears WAAAAAY before the last book.  ::)

I'd love to hear about the other discrepancies, because that stuff pisses me off to no end and may ultimately decide whether I waste my money on this or not.

If you're stretching one book (not even the longest one at that) into TWO movies, you damn sure better include everything IMO.

Okay, so I just saw the first episode and trying very hard not to read the spoilers on 2-4.  I don't get AMC - anyone know of a good place to catch episodes online?  E1 was kick-butt...great ending!

You can watch them all On-Demand for free if your cable system offers that service. HD too.

High hopes for tonight's episode...

ROTJ Wave has hit Walmart here, saw most at 2 different stores today. Went ahead and picked up a Wicket since this is technically a Droids derivative figure, and I collect all things Droids-related. He'll look good next to Boba and BL-17.

Watch the end of Mad Max.  You might find your answer.

Yeah, but he had no time constraints really? Heck, he probably could have sawed through the pipe he was chained to after a few hours.

There was a huge comic convention here today and Walking Dead was everywhere. I was very tempted to pick up a few of the anthologies but they weren't cheap.

Crap, all that hype and we never even got to see her new sabers! Love the new look on Ahsoka though, that will make for one spiffy new figure.

I wonder how hard it would actually be to produce those transforming Infiltrator Droids in the animated line. Because those would make for a pretty slick BattlePack.

Can't even comment on the stories de-regulations? Seriously? They absolutely have to be screwing with us intentionally with this stuff.

Saw this for the first time here locally tonight at the last of 4 Walmarts I hit up today. They only had one on the shelf, no price tag, slightly crushed corner. Kind of an underwhelming debut. Sure they will start to hit more in force next week.

Just saw these are up now at HTS for Pre-Order, sans Jet. With the Family2010 code, it comes to $29.33 for all 4 new figures. Tempting, if not for the estimated 12/6 ship date. Still, it could be worth it to enjoy the luxury of skipping Walmart for the next 2 weeks.

If you need some LMK. I can hook you up.

Thanks brother, PM sent.  ;)

I can't seem to get the inner package back into the mailing package - it's a very snug fit. Anyone else have that issue? I guess I can try opening both ends but I was hoping to retain as much of the original structural integrity as possible.

Is there any magic or monsters in this thing, or is it more of a reality based period piece? All the pics I saw were just humans. No goblins, wizards, dragons, etc.

Thanks, hunting around again for these today.

Not sure what will become of Jet...I just noticed that they actually revised the numbering for this wave. Jet was supposed to be CW36, but now Quinlan Vos has that number.

This strikes me as odd because they did not renumber the TVC wave missing Yoda or Wedge.

Maybe we'll see him in the eventual wave with Cad Bane in Clone Armor.  ::)

Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em...have been waiting for a non-zombie Geonosian to be come out. I wonder if/how this will differ from the version in the TRU exclusive set recently announced.

Special Ops dude looks a lot like the missing Comm. Jet...hmm.

Got mine today as well...pretty much immaculate, even the outer box. Definitely looking for another to open now, provided I can scrape up some more UPC's.

What constitutes a "Star Wars playset"? Battlepacks? Vehicles? I notice they have a photo of the AT-AT. Is that included as well you think?

Hey, I might be interested in one of these:

Sear Cantina/Early Bird Foot Peg $5 each

Does the $5 cover shipping too? I only need one...(I think)

Are the POP's from the figures in this wave eligible for the various mailaway promotions? (Bric and Boba) The numbers do not seem to match up to the ones listed on the forms. Are only Vintage figs from the first wave eligible?
