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.

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.

Both those figures look great, although I'm wondering if Krennic's cape is molded like Phasma's or soft goods.

Hmmm, so who might Jim Broadbent be playing next season?  ???

Aw man, I need this too. Love the colors!

As a parent I cannot imagine dropping that kind of cash on something like this at Christmas. Not even as a collector really. I wish them luck, but this seems like a classic boondoggle from the get-go.

Interesting choices. There isn't much secondary market heat for Ackbar, that's for sure. Really glad to see the ERG, never got a whiff of that guy. Agree Lando could have been replaced by someone better.

Ahsoka I find curious, unless she has some kind of surprise cameo in Rogue 1. ( :-X)  Her Rebels figure is still readily available on most pegs. I do think the TVC carded version will retain its value, just not the loose ones. I hope so anyway, I got 2 kids to put through college one day.  :P

RIP Willy Wonka and Dr. FRONKenstein...

Awww...loved him. The Cisco Kid...drinking Woolite in the many classic roles.

I picked up the Aliens Ripley/Queen/Powerloader set from Kokomo Toys tonight for $25 shipped. Haven't seen this in any stores yet and according to Super 7 the MSRP on this thing is $30, so this seemed like a good deal.

Happy hunting!  :)

Got this over the weekend but the front corner of the box was all crushed. 2nd damaged item I got in as many days. :(

I just saw TRU has added this item to their website though, so hopefully I can find a nice minty one in store someday. I am dying to open this thing but I need at least one MISB.

Yep, back to stupid form this week. They figured out that once you're bitten there is no coming back, but don't realize that sound attracts walkers?

At first I thought the orphan girl just jumped out the window and the walkers were following her, but I guess they heard the piano music twenty floors up?  ::)

They did a piss poor job packing that shopping cart. I could have gotten a hell of a lot more in there. And there was no room for the Mexican snack cakes?

Did the gang guys just trust that they would come back with loads of Oxycontin? That whole exchange made little sense to me.

How come the relatively healthy looking dad had to walk the plank but not the half dead gringo in the lawn chair?

Did Nick's dad drive into traffic to kill himself? That seemed to be implied but I don't see how she would possibly really know that. Maybe he just spaced out.

The Strain returns this weekend, I think. It's a better show. I mean, it's still chock full of stupid, but at least it has characters worth a damn.

I'm all in on The Strain, it's my favorite thing on TV. I know there are better shows, but none that I enjoy more.  :)

I actually liked the FTWD premiere way more than I thought I would. Which only underscores my feeling that everyone else not named Nick or Strand is completely worthless and irritating on this show. It was so nice not to have to sit through their unending, inane emotional problems.
