The hits (to my wallet) keep coming...picked up 2 Snowtrooper Officers @ TRU this morning.  :)

Went home to cancel my online preorders only to find an email stating they had already shipped. Doh!

Also picked up another Guavian Enforcer at a different Target. Some teenage kid standing in the aisle had Phasma in his hands...ooof. 5 minutes earlier and she would have been mine. I still can't talk about it.  :-[

Aw yeah! TV Series 8 in da house!!  ;D
Picked up Rick, Bob, Dale, and Morgan @ TRU over lunch today. No sign of Eugene - I have heard there are case assortments with and without him though so maybe he's more of a "chase" figure at this point.  The other 4 look outstanding though, really the best they have done yet, IMO. Great paint apps, great sculpts.

Also snagged the Deluxe Morgan versus Walker Boxed Set or whatever...$29.99, good stuff in there too.

Great toy day overall today!

Found all of Wave 2 minus Phasma (of course) on the pegs at Target over lunch. Only 1/4 local stores had them...the rest just Wave 1 stragglers.

Really happy to have found these but missing 1 always turns out to be a thorn in my side, especially a figure that is going to be in demand as Phasma. I'm going to have to get lucky with the timing on this one, I can tell.

And I'm going to need multiples of the Enforcer, that is one kick ass figure, no question.

Thanks Jeff! She looks amazing, goofy hat and all. I am so glad to hear they are committed to making more Rebels figures.

I need to go find pics of that Leia prototype now...

I've enjoyed it so far...every season I wonder if this is the year they will decide to kill Ward off once and for all, and that hope keeps me going. Eventually it's gotta happen, dude is going to get another role somewhere or something. At least Flowers is gone!

What was Simmons running from in the other dimension? The first episode it clearly seemed as though she was trying to evade someone or something. Guess we will find out. Glad they did not drag her captivity out over the whole season.

I liked the Inhuman-hunting KreeBeast a of the cooler things they have featured on the show so far.

Yeah, the Han likeness looks very impressive, seems to be some feeling out there that the hair is not grey enough but I will reserve judgement until I see him up close. Nice to see they revealed something new already.

Zero expectations...anything valuable to be learned will come thirdhand from other sources.

I would like to know when the 2 new Rebels figures (Rex and Inquisitor II/Fifth Brother) will be coming out. Surprise unveiling of the Ghost would be my pie in the sky hope.

Boom! I finally lucked out and was able to preorder two, with free shipping. Very relieved!

Very nice, call me a sucker, but I'm definitely getting this. I look forward to ordering this direct from Super7 like i did with the Haunted House.

Found the whole wave with PZ-4CO, Goss Toowers, the Guavian Enforcer, etc at Walmart last night. Grabbed all of them, including the repacked Inquisitor. I wish I had as much luck with the 6" stuff!

By far the best episode of the season....every episode should have been like this though. This was exactly the kind of chaos I was expecting to see. The scenes at the perimeter with the army dudes firing wildly at the horde were great I thought.

I really think it would have been a great twist to have the junkie eaten alive right in front of his Mom on the other side of the hospital door. Like Glyn and Everybody Hates Chris in the revolving door on WD last season. Missed opportunity there.

The stuff with the army guy was really stupid though. Like that dope is going to worry about the Salazars when his whole unit has pulled out and the city is in flames. If he was that pissed, why not just lie to Travis about where to go in the first place? And why shoot the girl and not the dude who sliced up your arm?

So what exactly did Mysterious Black Guy need Nick for in order to escape anyway? How exactly were those junkie skills going to come in handy? I assumed he was just going to throw the kid at the zombies at some point to distract them, but apparently not.

Kinda hard to work a boat into the end there and NOT have it feel like a rip-off of the Dawn of the Dead remake, but I'll give them a pass for that.

I loved how the ex-wife who was NOT EVEN A REAL NURSE managed to work out the pathology of the infection in a few hours and it took Rick and Co like 4 seasons to get there. And now she's dead! (Pretty quick to give up there too seemed to me, didn't she want to take a few minutes to write her son a letter or something? What was the rush to eat a bullet?)

I guess on TD they confirmed there would be a Season Two and with the same cast too. Rats.  :-\

Is that photo color altered? I can't imagine the sky really looks like that from the surface?

Great pics and review - thanks!
