I had a similar thought on Rick/Pete fight but it seems like he was losing at times, and I can't see him letting it get that close is all.  He should've just beat Pete solidly, IMO.  They could've shown him struggle to not kill him a number of ways.  Have Pete come at rick with a shard of the window even?  Make him out to be even more or a dillhole.  I just hated him having any real one on one advantage.  Drives me batty.  Guy beat Shane!  And that was a long time ago when Rick wasn't as hardened.

I'm curious how the finale will set up next season.  It's gonna be interesting for sure.  I figured they'd have established the new threat more by now honestly.

The problem is that once they introduce the "new threat" they're done. They're out of material. They are very close to catching up to the comic now. The next bad guy is the last one. I think they need at least another season of "Farmer Rick" type filler to let the comic forge ahead into some new territory.

And I haven't seen any casting scoop for that role so I am guessing that person will not be in the finale at least.

I saw remnants of the Bossk wave at 2 different Targets last night...both had a Chewie and TIE Pilot pegwarming. Pretty pissed that I missed them twice.

Hmmm, that is some interesting stuff there. I don't see them trawling out high quality SA figures for $7.99. Guessing these will be 5 POA, let the rioting commence.  :P

The vehicle assortment is intriguing. What can you really get for $10? A mini-rig? Even without the pack-in figures that seems a bit low. I could see the Class I Deluxe being the current scaled down ships like the Slave I, etc. Or maybe a mini-rig with 2 pack-in figures like they were doing near the end of TCW. What I'm really hoping for the Class II Vehicle is a return to properly scaled 3&3/4" compatible stuff.

Black Series 2-packs could be intriguing, but they will probably see this as a way to re-package pegwarming crud so it will end up being a bunch of Han/Greedo packs hanging around again.

I look forward to seeing this report showing up on the other sites' front pages in a week or two.  :D

I hated this episode. I thought the writing was atrocious, especially pretty much everything Rick said/did. He just seemed completely out of character. WTF was he thinking telling Deanna about executing Pete? Rick wouldn't do that. And he certainly wouldn't go all crazy Rick waving his gun around like that at the end. He's way past that. And NO WAY IN HELL does a weak dope like Pete go toe to toe with Rick like that even for a few seconds. This is the dude who destroyed Man-Mountain Tyreese. He's got chunks of guys like Pete in his stool, for chrissake.

I kept thinking what Carol told Rick when they arrived: "You were wrong, but you were right".

He should have taken the moral high ground with Deanna, who is basically revealed to be just like Dawn. Go ahead and rape/abuse our women as long as it keeps things running smoothly. What kind of idiotic self-loathing woman, a former congrsswoman no less, would get on board with that? It's asinine. Rick could have made that obvious but he bungled that whole conversation.

How would Nicholas have known about Rick's gun? And why would he even care/need it?

Sasha is an idiot. Keep wasting ammo, babe, that's just what "they" are hoping for by herding all these walkers towards your gate. And WTF was she looking at when she saw that woman running? Her act is growing tiresome.

I didn't really get the whole thing with the woman strapped to the tree. What were the remains by the fire? Not hers clearly. Was she with someone else and they got jumped? Is that the implication? She was supposed to be walker bait?

What I did like: the girl with Carl turning out NOT to be a mole/psycho/whatever. Just a normal kid. Also liked Glenn getting heavy with Dick-o-las.

Agreed it was weird that Deanna never took the time to talk to Glenn or Eugene.

Picked up the Imperial Transport from HTS. Very excited to get this!

I had been waiting for this to come back in stock all week...thanks! I got two.

Wish the Sabine set had been in stock too.

No, I won't be watching either way, I recall Preacher being about futuristic vampires and i think they already made that movie a few years ago.

I just don't like this trend of casting against type.

Was that Edward James Olmos as the Director? Nice get.

It seems to me that the "real" SHIELD is whoever Fury bequeathed the legacy to, and that was clearly Coulson. What have these other schmoes been doing the past 6 months? Certainly not fighting Hydra or saving the world like Coulson's team.

I spied a couple of leftovers from Wave 3 at Target this morning and was able to snag the variant Inquisitor MOC. So I went ahead and cancelled my HTS order.

I'll double check the spare I have from my Wave 3 case - but I may have one available as well. In addition to the Wave 3 Ezra Variant, which apparently has a slight variation on the logo on the back of his vest, I haven't opened one yet to know for sure...

I believe the Ezra variant is actually between the 3-pack version and the Wave 1 figure. There is nothing different about the Wave 3 figure itself except for the date stamp/COO.

What did the one guy whisper to Aidan before he took off?

That was a brutal exit, but Noah's was even worse. Don't bring the limpy gun on the next run!

Totally called it on Dr Feelbad. Figures he couldn't have been a ditch digger or some other non-skilled trade. Nice to see the kid and Carol connect after that last conversation too. I'm guess it will probably be her or the wife that actually ends up offing the guy, but Rick is certainly up for the job.

Screw Gabriel. It was bad enough when he was just worthless, but he has escalated to pure douchery. If someone comes at me warning me about the Devil and Angels of Light though, I'm probably taking that with a few grains of salt. No doubt Maggie is going to take care of some business now too.

Saw a ton of Wave 2 figs today at various Walmarts while out looking for the new 6" stuff. Picked up a couple more JTG's for the platoon.
