Wild weekend of games and overreactions from announcers. (Start fitting Prescott and Wentz for their HOF jackets now apparently)

Looking forward to a good showing by the Skins tonight, outright win or even a close, respectable loss. (No shame in losing to the Steelers IMHO)

I just don't want to lose on a missed field goal or some insane comeback, 'cause it seems that's how most of the games went yesterday.

Mostly rooting for NO INJURIES...

Good luck Jesse, hope we get a good game!

I saw one of these at Wizard Con this weekend...for $110.  ::)

Nice to examine it in hand, looking forward to picking it up one day.

Saw the new Han last night at TWO different Walmarts while out hunting for 6" Rogue One figs.

First time I had ever seen him on the pegs. $10 and change at both stores too.

Nevermind, when I went back today the prices were now down to what Brickpicker was showing. They must have done it sometime after I left yesterday. Good to know I can rely on that site again.

Hey, football's back!  :D

Good game last night.

Jesse's Steelers vs my 'Skins Monday night.  :)

Anyone else excited?

I normally find Brickpicker to be very reliable for the stores in my area but this week it has shown multiple stores with $50 TIEs that turned out to still be $84 still.  :(

I've seen times where maybe it took a day or so for the stores to catch up to the online price listing, but never more than that. I plan to check back again today just in case but normally all the clearance toy prices go into effect on Thursdays.

Just curious if others have experienced this and whether it takes a full week to get back in synch or if it could happen on any given day.

I bit on the Funko Garbage Pail Kids earlier in the year.

Now I'm trying to resist the new Game of Thrones 3.75" figures.

FWIW, I know we like a lot of the same stuff, and I haven't had any regrets about picking up those Thrones figures. They are extremely well done for $10 IMHO.

Funko stuff doesn't usually go more than 2-3 waves tops too, so it' not likely to be a major ongoing commitment on your part. (If that's a consideration at all)

Then we get to the Chris/Travis storyline and it all goes to hell.  Someone needs to put a bullet in Chris and probably Travis shortly after.  All I could think of when he shot the farmer was "Holy **** Morty!  You purged!"  He's a complete sociopath at this point...have him look at the flowers already!  Travis is only alive by pure dumb luck.  He was right about trying to leave the farm and not harming the fater...but he won't stand up to his son and get away from the glaringly obvious **** strom that is the frat boy zombie apocalypse gang!  None of those idiots deserve to survive at this point.

Plus Travis was idiotic to ever come out of hiding when those guys first found them anyway. Try pulling that **** down in GA and those guys would be raping you or eating you or both before you could whistle Dixie.

"We're not going to kill you over a can of beans! We just wanted to follow you for a few hundred miles and say hi"

I was really disappointed when I realized that Walker in the bar wasn't Madison.

Ophilia must be some kind of secret Ninja badass to have gotten out of there without being eaten or spotted by anyone.

Dang, I just downloaded that app but it's showing as "Out of Stock" now.  :(

The Maul 2-pack looks incredible, for sure. They nailed both those characters. I'm not sure I like how they interpreted his giant explosive backpack though. The one I recall from the episode was more non-existy.  :D

I bought a Kanan/Cadet Ezra 2-pack for $5 off Hasbros eBay store during their blowout sale yesterday. I miss buying Rebels toys. It's fun.

I just don't see how a spare gold arm could cost more to pack in than a blaster, removable helmet, and alternate set of hands. (Poe) The amount of plastic, tooling, paint etc is certainly comparable.

Of course I realize the answer is so they can sell me the same figure again later, but thats weak.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Class I Vehicle Sets
« on: September 3, 2016, 11:05 AM »
Knew this was coming but still excited to see it in print!

I just wish they would make some cargo containers you could tow behind it like the show. Kinda wish they had tweaked the driver sculpt a little bit too, but those are small quibbles.

I'll get at least 2-3 of these for sure.

Still need to make the regular Rebels TIE, along with the Ghost that is the most glaring vehicle omission to date.

Some people seem to think it will go lower than that even, but I don't know...70% off is as low as a lot of items there ever get. I am definitely getting at least one when they hit $50 here.
