TRU abruptly canceled my pre-orders for Tacit Ronin and the 18" Cherno Alpha.  >:(

When I went back to their site to replace the pre-order, Tacit Ronin was no longer even listed. Even though I know for a fact he has shown up in stores already.  ???

Even weirder, 18" Cherno Alpha was listed as In Stock even though he has had 12/17 as the street date for awhile now. Anyway, I went ahead and ordered him and he is on his way. I am anticipating this will easily be one of my favorite toys of the year...cannot wait!

For anyone else who's been holding out (like me) the Prison Gate and Tower set is on sale for 30% off at TRU this week, along with the other 2 building sets as well. I made sure to let everyone know who might be inclined to give me a gift this year.  ;)

I also heard the MIA McFarlane Long Coat Governor figure is starting to show up at Walgreen's already. The hunt begins tomorrow...

BOGOHO SW figures @ TRU today. I literally could not find two things there worth buying though. (In-store only)

Hasbro has a 25% off + Free Shipping deal too, HOLIDAYFF14 is the promo code. I got sucked into buying some more 6" Clone Troopers since that wave was so scarce. All their Rebels stuff is sold out though. :(

Received the new Clone Sergeant I ordered off Amazon on Cyber Monday. Also an extra Jabba I can actually open and display. Still no sign of any new 6" in stores here yet though...

Hey, if it prevents him from being in any of the new SW movies, I'm all for it.

The second wave of Avengers figures from the animated series have turned up at 5 Below.  That wave includes Thor, Nick Fury, Hawkeye and The Leader.

I saw those weeks ago and wondered what the heck they were...thanks!

Got the 2nd wave of Alien figs in the mail today...they all look really nice. Nice to have them on minty unpunched cards too, although I wish they could have gone with a limited run in the blue cardbacks ala the first wave.

I bought the 6" Jabba on Amazon today too, since I could never figure out a way to extricate my SDCC version. Threw in the Clone Sergeant as well since he was the same price and it hooked me up either free shipping.  :)

25% off all ReAction figures over at today...(online only)

On a different note, I bought the new Alien wave on ebay (4 figures total) for a shade under $11 a piece shipped. No telling when these will show up in stores...

What a downer.  :(

I don't know which was harder to watch, seeing Beth get killed on the show or watching Emily Kinney crying on Talking Dead. God, she is a sweet girl. I bet Kirkman felt like crawling in a hole and dying right about then.

As soon as I heard there would be a "surprise" guest on TD, I had a bad feeling. And when Beth took the scissors I had a really bad feeling. I just wished they had asked her on TD what she meant when she said "I get it."

I can't believe we lost Beth and yet somehow Tara is still on the show. Between the two, Beth was a much more interesting character IMO and they had only begun to scratch the surface with her. Plus, poor Daryl! Seeing that guy cry made me die a little inside.

Nice to see them back together at the end. What a rollercoaster ride for Maggie though. Joy to heartbreak in just a few hours. I hope Father Gabriel has his stuff together now because he has about used up all his stupid cards.

That whole opening scene was fantastic though. Dumbass should have just stopped.

ps - I'm with you Nick, psyched for the new cast members coming up!

I picked up the Ezra & Stormtrooper 20" Rebels 2-pack @ Walmart for $15, a bunch of New Walking Dead figures @ Gamestop for $10 a pop, and then another Proto Boba from Walgreens for $15.  ;D

Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!

Saw an interesting listing over at Walmart's website for this Rebels two-pack:

At first glance I thought these were just repacks of the 12" figures, but the item description clearly states 18". They have previously announced there would be a Rebels style Stormtrooper in this scale, so this makes sense. I just hope he ends up coming single carded too as I don't need another Ezra.

I actually found this set at Walmart today, and since it was on sale for $15 I went ahead and picked it up. Hope we see the rest of the crew in this scale soon.

Just FYI, the Gamestop sale is now in effect, so Wd figures are $10, I got the price adjusted for the ones I bought Wednesday too.  :)

Score! I picked up all of TV Series 6 @ Gamestop today after work, minus long coat Governor, whom I believe is shipping separately at some later date. (He is the only figure not listed on their website either)

They all look amazing at first glance, and best of all they go on sale Black Friday for $10 apiece! (I was assured a price adjustment would be no problem if I came back in)

Happy hunting!
