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!)

Other Toy Lines / Re: ReAction Lines

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

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.

TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)

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.

Yeah, it hasn't been great but it hasn't been tiresome or annoying like Agent carter (yet) at least. The Absorbing Man was pretty cool I thought.

I feel like there should be an Inhumans movie out in the next year to properly tie-in, but I know that is a ways off so I'm thinking they probably got into that stuff too early and are forced to tread water now.

I finally decided I was sick of trying to find another Fifth Brother to open so I grabbed one off HTS just now. Still in stock if you need it.

Happy to not obsess over this guy anymore.

They have been killing it (pun intended) all season I think, and especially the past couple of weeks. I almost didn't want to watch last night fearing how the whole thing might play out with Maggie and Carol but I thought they handled it brilliantly.

I kept thinking Carol was just playing them so hard all episode that it was inevitable she would snap into Carol-mode at some point and jam that crucifix into one of those chick's eyes, but I guess she is in a different place now. Maggie sure as hell picked up the slack though, she was straight up regulating.

Was that Agent 33 from Agents of SHIELD as the fingerless Savior? Sure looked like her.

Between last night, the raid last week and the RPG encounter on the road they must have killed at least 20-30 of these schmoes by now. How freaking many are there? Because they've only got about that many left in Alexandria now. Call in the reinforcements!

I figured that was Daryl's bike those 2 idiots had stolen, guess it was. Wonder if those 2 are long dead or will come back around somehow?

Seems pretty certain we can expect a significant death at the end of this season. I just hope they break with the comic and go in a different direction, I kinda feel like they are setting up for that in some ways.

Thinking Tara and Heath better keep their heads on a swivel too.

The photos all over the internets look pretty legit. Seems like a solid 4th wave.

I've been enjoying some retro toy collecting lately. Finally found a MISB JJ Armes figure, made by Ideal in 1976. (still need that boss van)

Even better, I finally bit the bullet and picked up a complete set of the 1980 Filmation Flash Gordon figures. (Minus Vultans wings, but those will be replaced) I've wanted a set of these forever, loved the show as a kid. Only ended up costing me $17 each shipped, not bad at all.

There will be more to come!
