#TaintedMeat!!!

What a great episode, probably one of my favorites in recent memory. The sheer cathartic thrill from watching Rick & co brutally slaughter those worthless dbags in the church was exquisite. God, that was sweet. I knew we would see that red handled machete again!

Great scenes with Bob throughout the episode, by the end you really felt the weight of his loss. Optimists are a rare breed in that world...he will be missed.

I did not get the whole splitting-up-the-group thing either. Why did Maggie and Glenn have to go on the bus? I know this was discussed as some part of the bargain, but it ultimately seems a bit pointless. I liked the note Abraham left on the map for Rick though, nice touch.

Two minor things bothered me about last night's episode though. #1, how in the Hell would Gareth have known everyone's names? They weren't at Terminus long enough to glean that info and Bob sure as hell wasn't talking. I can see knowing a couple of them but not every single one. #2, how in the Hell would Gareth have known it was Carol who killed his Mom? It's not like he was in the room, if he had found her later it would have just appeared she had been torn apart by walkers. Doubtful he would have even noticed she had been shot, and he certainly wouldn't know by whom.

I know i am in the minority on this, but I am convinced Gareth was wrong and that eating the tainted meat was in fact, a very bad thing. Cooking, IMO, would have had no effect on the escalation of the virus. And I'm pretty sure this would have hastened everyone "turning" had they not all been killed. I know the pathology of the virus is intentionally vague, but that's how I make sense of it in my head.

Yeah, great cliffhanger at the end there with Daryl. Does he have Beth, or Carol? Or both? And why would they have been hanging back in the shadows? Gruseome injuries perhaps? CAN'T WAIT TIL NEXT WEEK!!

Can't really mess up black on black paint apps.  ;)

True, but there are silver and grey highlights too! At least they got the nose and mouth ports right.

LOL, sorry I did drop the ball on that one...chalk it up to my lack of comic focus now. Did you get the color or B&W version?

I picked up the Daryl and Chopper builder set and a 5 figure "starter pack" from TRU yesterday. They had the Governor set too but I didn't want to go all out as I am still sort of undecided on these. Sitting here looking at them right now, they are definitely well done, but will also take up significant stuff to display properly...

Picked up my Shadow Squadron set at lunch today courtesy of the DPCI Mind-Trick. Man, this thing is all kinds of awesome, didn't think I would be so jazzed about simple repaints but they came out so nicely!

Where was Sir Baristan???
In the book or in the show?

Well, I guess I meant in the photo, seems like he would have been up there with her, but maybe not.

Last night's episode was terrific, and I am loving me some Adrienne Palicki.  :)

So what's the deal with Skye's dad? Does he turn into a monster or is he just super strong?

Did they ever explain how Whitehall isn't aging?

Was hoping for a less awkward reunion for FitzSimmons...

Nice, was hoping someone would post that here. I find the whole things amusing, but only insofar as it is likely to fail. I would be super bummed if they ever actually stopped carrying adult collectibles.

Maybe she should be more worried about those spandex-clad steroid-shooting wrestler action figures.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series - 2014 Wave 2
« on: October 21, 2014, 03:21 PM »
I'm really surprised there has not been more of an outcry about this wave. I mean, it NEVER hit here AT ALL. Anywhere. If I hadn't orderd from Dorkside I'd still be looking for them.

I guess having 2 PT and 2 carry-forwards doesn't make it the most appealing wave but I still think it's super weird how this one ended up completely MIA. I get that this was the last wave in the "old" packaging but sheesh.

I picked up 12" Agent Kallus, Rebels Stormtrooper, and Ezra at TRU today. I sure hope they release Kanan and the Inquisitor single-boxed because no way am I buying that Target set just for them.

Haven't you read the comics McMetal? I figured you must have with your knowledge of the exclusive comic figures.

Yeah, but it's been so long I couldn't remember. I went back and read up last night though, now it all comes back.  ;)

I don't see the problem with discussing the comic stuff in here, the shows veers wildly away from the comic plots generally, so knowing one thing doesn't necessarily spoil the other.

I think it would have been cooler if Bob had been bitten and those dbags had eaten his infected leg. (Yes, I know everyone's infected but something about being bitten seems to hasten the process)

I also think Gareth is full of crap about it not being personal. There were plenty of dead people back in Terminus they could have eaten. Like his Mom.

Where was Carol going when Daryl caught her sneaking off?

Why was the guy Tyreese beat not bruised at all? (Good call on that BTW, didn't think we would see him again so soon)

What did Father Gabriel do? Guessing he just locked the church and wouldn't let anyone in went things went bad?

WTF was going on with Bob before he got nabbed? I was absolutely sure he had been bitten or scratched at the Food Bank and was sneaking off to run away or kill himself. He seemed pretty distraught outside the church there. Weird.

Glad someone is on the way to rescue Beth!

Our local TRU finally stocked these today (8 total) so I picked up an extra to open since I had a 20% off coupon and the one i ordered from their website arrived crushed. I had to look through every single one to find one with decent paint apps. The biggest trouble spots seem to be Ezra's eyebrows and the visor of the helmet.

Anyone picking up the building sets? I'm debating them seriously, would prob help if I saw them up close. I guess TRU is starting to get them in...
