TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)
« on: March 30, 2016, 02:51 PM »
Haven't posted much this season since I typically watch these On-Demand several days after, but I am looking forward to the hour long finale tonight. Saw the Preview clip with Ezra and the "Old Master" chatting...good stuff!

Hoping for some closure this time around that the Clone Wars always failed to deliver.

Cracked this wave open last night. Kanan is surprisingly well done. Good sculpt and paint apps and little details like the lightsaber disassembling and the hilt being designed to fit in the back of his belt were very cool. Ahsoka is just as great as expected, mine had really crisp paint apps especially on the lekku. She looks terrific.

Luke was a real disappointment to me though. I don't like the pink waxy plastic they used on him and Hux. I prefer the painted heads like Jedi Luke or X-Wing Luke. Plus his head looks tiny on this sculpt. He just looks weird and out of place with the other 6" figures imho. Bummer for such an iconic depiction.

Woo hoo! Found Luke and Ahsoka at Target over lunch today. I literally walked in as they were stocking the shelves. Nothing on the pegs but I spied an opened box of SW 6" on the floor and sure enough it was Wave 6.  ;D  I guess they were planning to put them back in the stockroom since there was no room on the pegs with all those Finns and Resistance Trooper with Not Green Helmets chilling there. Talk about great timing though, I was super happy.

Looking forward to a nice long break from storehunts. At least until Starkiller Rey starts hitting...

I think we got our first look at someone from the Kingdom tonight.

Who? The dude with the Invisible Horse? WHERES THE #$%^& TIGER, WRITERS?!?!  :D

It seems everyone even Hardwick agrees that they all acted stupidly running off like that. Carol would have been fine and only Daryl would have been taken, which happened anyway. I was practically screaming "GLEN, DON'T GO!!"  :(

BTW, I have had about enough with the ninjalike prowess of the Saviors sneaking up on people like Daryl and Michonne who are just so much better than them in every way. Last episode at the train tracks was bad enough but last night was too much. What, are they the Others from LOST or something?

Scoreboard up to something like 55-1 Alexandrites vs Saviors. I guess their compound is the whole city of DC or something because come on, how %^&* many of those aholes are there??

What did Carol have up her sleeve, an UZI? That was a serious spray of bullets.

So the 1 Savior that was left alive - he was hiding in the trees watching Rick and Morgan right? I thought after they went into the fields to look for Carol he followed them, but then they never went back to that. You would think Rick would have stumbled on him on his way back to the car. So what happened to that guy? He must show up next week because they showed that damn crucifix again in the Preview and apparently that string of rosary beads is now the most important symbolic artifact in the world.  ???

I was really convinced that Carol was going to be the last minute pinch hitter for Lucille - she has gotten a lot of screen time of late and her personal journey has kind of come full circle. Not sure how much growth is left for her character at this point. Storywise it doesn't make sense to kill Michonne yet, and I don't think Rosita checking out would be dramatic enough. Which just leaves Glenn or Daryl. I feel like Glenn's story is still evolving too, and he hasn't been given much screen time lately, AND they just teased his death a few episodes back anyway, so I'm hoping he gets a reprieve. But Maggie's new haircut has me worried again.  :-[

I almost want to see them kill Daryl just to watch the Internets explode next week.  :P

Was unable to resist the Mezco 1:12 Judge Dredd figure any longer. Found one for $50 shipped on eBay so I pounced. Every bit as I cool as I expected...multiple hands and accessories, well articulated but hidden, great sculpt, just an all around terrific effort.

Definitely need the Cursed Earth version and NYCC B&W variant now. And that badass bike.   8)

My buddy found a Kanan for me. Haven't heard of another case of this wave hit this week though. So weird that not one case of the Hux wave hit around here.

I found another Kanan and a couple of Snowtroopers yesterday too. That's the 2nd time that has happened to me recently, and this store had just put stuff out. I almost wonder if there is some weird case revision shipping that doesn't include Luke and Ahsoka.

That Hux wave I only ever saw twice I think, once at Walmart and then many weeks later at TRU. That one was really hit or miss. The only waves I've had a harder time finding were the ones with Anakin and the Clone Trooper and that one wave with Bossk. That Hux wave will probably resurface over the summer...hopefully.

I picked up 6" Kanan Jarrus at lunch today.  :)

That sounds easy enough but it was actually the culmination of many days' worth of fruitless Brickpicker stalking, Jedi mind-tricking, and driving around from store to store. I can honestly say I have never put in so much effort to find one of these waves. I just have a weird feeling these are all going to be really hard to find, like that Wave 4 that came and went like a thief in the night.

I don't mind so much, it's easier then stalking TRU or Walgreens, but still can be a tiresome exercise. I have stumbled across so many Wave 2 revision cases it's not even funny. And I still have never seen the legendary standalone display that seems to migrate from CD's to clothes to the grocery section. It's like the Castle of the Beast in Krull. After sundown it will pop up somewhere else in the store that I can't find.  :D

Kanan looks awesome BTW. Can't wait to find the others!

Thanks Jayson, I have seen the trading card stand but not the SW one (yet). No biggie if it's just the Jango wave....I am good on those.

I was thinking she went crazy and ate the kid, not sure if it was before or after she turned though. Gross stuff for sure.

I'm pretty sure they did Zombie Baby early on in "Z-Nation", but yeah, I don't think they would go there on WD. (But i'm all for the dude with the tiger, come on Dalrymple!)

 :D

Nice Rob!

I've gotten all of them now except for the Toy Tokyo Battle Damaged T800. just waiting for a reasonably priced one to pop up on eBay and then I'm done.

Also, not ReAction, but I was super psyched to get my Herbert West, Re-Animator 3&3/4" figure from Amok Time this week. (Think the company that makes it is called Monstarz) Awesome piece of work!

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rumors
« on: March 21, 2016, 10:47 AM »
So...I'm trying to gather intel on these Target POP displays that are starting to pop up around the country. Has anyone seen of these in your neck of the woods?

I have been tracking inventory counts with Brickpicker and was baffled for days why I was seeing spikes at multiple stores with nothing on the pegs and a 0 count shown in the storeroom.

Turns out this is why, they are sitting on some $%^&* piece of cardboard waiting for god knows what because there is no street date for this thing even.

For anyone that has seen this, curious A) where they are being found exactly in the store (Music/DVD section seems the most common place) and B) exactly which figures are being stocked here. I've seen multiple reports of [people finding the Jango wave but was really hoping to get confirmation that they are stocking the Ahsoka wave on this thing too.

Thanks in advance!

Never have so many, given so much...for a can of soda?!?

Seriously, I hope they at least bought that damn can of pop back to Alexandria so they could bequeath it to Tara. "Hey, your girlfriend is dead but she wanted you to have this RC...drink up, baby!"

And now you have all these great meds and no one to administer them. (ok, forgot about the Hilltop doc, but that is a long drive if you have an emergency)

I love how Daryl is more worried about the bike than whatever happened to that girl that was in the burned forest with Dwight. No one seems curious what happened to her?

I didn't even realize that was supposed to be Dwight in that previous episode, did they ever even say his name? Iron to the face...nice. Not quite as brutal as the electric stove top to the face ala The Shield a few years back, but effective nonetheless.

I knew the bullet idea would make some of you guys happy. Good to see someone thinking ahead at least.

It's like Abraham and Carol suddenly switched their crazy. One stays and one goes but not the ones you would have thought. Kind of a weird swerve there. Hard to see where they are going with that but I assume she will either be killed or return to save the day like with Terminus. Hopefully the latter.

Most disturbing thing to me was Dwight' comment about what a nice place they had in Alexandria. Seems to confirm they are watching them...I figured they would have an impossibly difficult time ever finding them over such a large area, but then again I have actually been to Alexandria and the writers probably never have so they don't understand that there are more then 3 roads in and out of the place.  ::)

Saw 10 Cloverfield Lane last night...good flick, taut, well paced...still no clue how it is supposed to tie back to the first movie.  ???

I could never get past kid and his Dad banging the same chick in that 3rd movie. That one thing totally skeeved me out. Plus WTF would his Dad have a thick Scottish accent? I didn't like Connery in that role.

I hate when they shrink the credits so I can't see who the voices are. I know I recognize that Imperial Droid's voice. All I could think of was man, it sucks that they're never going to make that action figure. Which is pretty much what I think whenever I see anything cool on this show.

I liked it, I feel like it would have been a lot more compelling tie-in if the new base they had found was on Yavin, or even Dantooine, but whateves. I guess they'll get there eventually.
