I will go out on a limb and guess the Inquisitor is single packed as he is the single most interesting character of the wave and the one most likely to sell and clearly Hasbro hates money.  ;)

These haven't made it here yet, but I am hopeful it will be soon.

Are these on sale at some stores now?

I saw the Buffy and Pulp Fiction characters today for the first time at Barnes and Noble. I was on the fence with the latter but they did not impress in hand so I will probably just pick up the Gimp and be done with it.

Seth Green must be psyched to finally have an action figure of himself.  :-\

No worries, I found these today. There were plenty of Kanan sets but between two stores I found just one lone Inquisitor set. Thrilled to have him though, especially at the current sale price.

I guess I will keep the exclusives MISB and open the others.

Is Target only offering their pack-in versions of the Inquisitor TIE and Phantom?  Or are they offering a pack-in version of the AT-DP as well?

Right now it is just those two, but I believe there is an exclusive AT-DP set scheduled for the near future with the driver as a pack-in figure.

Raised by Hershel...trained by Daryl.  ;D Can we get a Beth Greene action figure already?

I enjoyed this, definitely a departure from the norm, but always interesting to get a glimpse into other survivors and the twisted worlds they create for themselves.

Dawn/Don - (no idea what they were saying all episode) what kind of an appalingly soulless human do you have to be to facilitate the institutionalized rape of your fellow women? What a loathsome POS, hope she gets the end she desevres.

Seemed kinda weird that she would be the one still in charge, and exempted from any of the other brutality. But I guess that was sort of the point, that they had this bizarre "system" that everyone observed, although the whole thing was seemingly starting to veer out of control.

I sort of wanted to like the doctor at first but by the end it seemed like he was just as complicit as the rest, and certainly motivated by his own self interest.

Was the kid from Richmond the same actor who played the young Chris Rock on that show a few years back? He seemed really familiar, as did Dawn/Don, but I could not place her either.

I saw a sale tag advertising a $23.49 price on the TIE w/Inquisitor set at Target today, but no actual product, just a gaping empty space.  :(

New EE exclusive ReAction "Glow-in-the-Dark" Predator Announced

Resistance is futile... this must be mine. I just found the other Predator figs (minus the helmeted version) at B&N today and bought them all on the spot. I already got the SDCC version so this new variant is right on time.

I've spent so much more on these things than Hasbro stuff this year it's not even close.

The Target exclusive Phantom w/Kanan and TIE Advance prototype w/Inquisitor have started to hit stores. Looks like 2 Phantoms & 1 TIE per case.

Is there a unique DPCI for these versus the non-exclusive versions?

I saw a shelf tag for these the other day but they just had the previous versions in that space.

Well, I guess they could only maintain their streak of good episodes for so long. Last night was terrible IMO. The whole thing with the elder Ward seemed really rushed and would have played out better had they introduced him earlier. The plotline in Okinawa and Belgium made no sense.

But worst of all, for a show that has been pretty clever and unpredictable to this point in the season, the gratuitous and completely obvious escape of Ward. How on earth do you not sedate him for transport, or maybe even keep the bag over his head after he gets in the truck? That seemed like an incredibly lax detail for such a dangerous prisoner transport. And wouldn't the Senator have held off on th press conference until AFTER his brother was in custody? The whole thing was just asinine.

The only thing I hope is that this was perhaps part of some larger angle where they let him go purposely to track him back to Skye's dad or Whitehall or something. Otherwise this was just bad writing.

Really getting sick of Simmons too. What is so hard about telling Fitz you left because you thought you were hindering his recovery? Instead you just let him imagine any number of other hurtful possibilities...nice. Grow up and tell him you only like him as a friend or whatever, just seems cruel to keep dancing around it.

Well, he can certainly pull off the smug, arrogant pre-magic Strange. I just can't picture him with the proper facial hair...

#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...
