I found Rey 4.0 at a local specialty toy shop. I bought her just to compare more closely to the previous versions. Will try to post a report later.

OMFG, that was amazing, and the last 10 minutes were so ******* kick-ass.

I hope that little girl from Bear Island made it out ok.

Don't mess with Sansa.

Please and thank you.  ;D

I saw some recent prototype pics of some of the other characters and they looked amazing. Can't wait for these guys!

On the topic of sales, Gamestop finally dropped the price on the 6" Clone Trooper to $9.97 so I picked up the last one I could find in my area. Might be worth checking their website to see if there are any left near you...

Think this is the right thread?

I finally found NorthStar today at Gamestop unexpectedly. I figured he had to be out somewhere, I see them all over eBay.

Stoked to have most of Alpha Flight now. Shaman I can live without. Sasquatch in this scale seems like a glaring omission to me though.

It is probably crazy to think you'll find them at retail at this point (in the thick of Marvel summer already), but Entertainment Earth and other online shops are expecting more cases (finally) in June/July.

Sounds like that new lightsaber Rey variant that popped up over the weekend might be in the Wave 4 reship cases, so that might be one more bit of a reason to just pre-order the case and be done with it.

That one's a tough sell to me. If I have the first 3 Reys, I don't see anything unique about this one to justify buying it. The lightsaber is apparently exactly the same as the one in the K-Mart exclusive, and the Rey figure and BB-8 are the same as one of the previous 2 iterations.

I guess if you're keeping in the package it is more appealing but this is one of the few lines I actually open. So I think I can skip this one.

I knew that big, ugly ****** was still alive!

TV once again adheres to its own unique law of physics, if a tree dies in the forest, but is not explicitly show dying onscreen, then that tree will eventually be brought back to life.

At this rate it's only a matter of time before Stannis shows up again...

I was expecting a lot more from an Ian McShane GoT cameo, but I guess we will take what we can get. I assume they were still hanging out around the Vale? Were the guys that slaughtered them Dondarrion's (sic) men or just some other band of Brothers?

Bear Island looked pretty cool, but geez...62 men? The army building is not going so well. Maybe a quick raven to Littlefinger will help?

Arya  :-\

What a weird and disappointing end to the latest season...

FYI, some of these guys are starting to show up at ROSS (Dress for Less Success) if you need 'em. I picked up a Flu Walker for $5.99 yesterday. Not quite as good as the $5 Gamestop clearance from awhile back, but not too shabby.

It was a week of long awaited returns!

Very happy they gave us back Benjen and none of that "Cold Hands" red herring stuff. Guy knows how to make an entrance!

We finally got back to Walter Frey after forever too. Man, that wretched old goat cannot die soon, or violently, enough. His justice has been a long time coming and I am thinking it will be sweet. It had better be.

Also good to see little brother Tully and the mention of Blackfish. Surprised the Lannisters would agree to send a force to the Riverlands but I guess they pay their debts and all that. Puts Jamie on a collision course with Brienne again, on opposite sides.

Littlefinger should take his Knights of the Vale back down there too, can't imagine he is very happy with Frey killing the love of his life.

Sam's dad was an unbelievable prick, as expected. I was hoping he would stand up to him at dinner but no such luck. At least he wised up and got Gilly and Sam Jr out of there.  And nicked the sword. (What's up with all these minor houses like the Tarleys and Moormonts rocking the Valerian steel anyway?)

Everything with Arya the past two seasons feels like a complete waste of time now. How do they give one of the best characters the absolute crappiest storyline? Get her back to Westeros kicking ass please.

We should probably be more concerned about the FOUR WEEKS of re-shoots Disney bosses allegedly just ordered after this movie tested so badly...yikes.

Also surprised to read both Mara sisters were in the running for the lead role.  Kate would have been the bomb I think...

So overwhelmed by last week's episode, I couldn't even post about it.  :D

That was some great stuff...hard to even remember anything else after the Night's King showed up.

Am guessing he somehow ties into the reason the White Walkers got out of control, definitely does not resemble the rest of them.

How did they get the ability to create other white walkers though, as shown with Craster's baby earlier? Or wights for that matter? Or is that just something that came courtesy of the Night's King?

freaking Hodor, heartbreaking. His whole life was basically fixated on that one purpose no one even realized until the end. Will he end up as a gigantic wight this week though?

They sure got there in a hurry from Hardhome. Guess they are waiting for winter to really hit before making the push south.

With most of the modern lines I collect ending (Walking Dead, Pacific Rim) or on hiatus (SW 6") I've been refocusing my attention on older stuff lately.

Today I received a totally boss MISB V "Enemy Visitor" 12" figure which I won on eBay recently. This thing is so great. Pity we never got the 3&3/4" figures.

These have finally hit an attractive clearance price at Target. I picked up some extra 5th Element figures yesterday for $2.98 a pop. Not quite as good as the $2 blowout at Barnes and Noble, but close.  ;D

Also grabbed a Terminator and Gracie Law this morning. Not sure what I will ultimately end up doing with these guys but I find that price hard to pass up for the value.

Really wish I could find some Gremlins because that's the one ReAction line I never picked up despite some interest.
