Star Wars Rebels / Re: Star Wars Rebels Toy Rumors!
« on: November 17, 2015, 12:49 PM »
I was just thinking how cool it was when they used to make Star Wars Rebels action figures. That was a fun couple of months.  ::)

At this rate the %$^&* season is going to be over before those 2 Inquisitors and Rex make it out, if ever.

I get the focus on the new movie but they are letting the current media die on the vine as a result. Those new figures should have been in the latest TFA waves instead of repack swag like Kanan and the Inquisitor.

So much squandered potential...

Plenty of the prototype Boba Fett figures turned up at Walgreens stores.  And with Walgreens taking over Rite Aid?  That means there are going to be that many more Walgreens stores VERY SOON.  I think this Emporer's Wrath Vader will probably be reasonably easy to get.

Although I did see a few Proto Bobas around here, it is a very different case with their Walking Dead exclusive figures. That %$^& Deputy Rick figure NEVER made it to a single store around here, and I checked all of them repeatedly for weeks. And I only saw the Black Ant-Man at 2 different stores out of like 20 around here. That's the kind of stuff that has me nervous. They are not at all consistent with the availability of their products across the country.

If this isn't showing up in stores by Black Friday that is a HUGE missed opportunity for them IMO.

They are, because apparently no retailer has figured out yet how to meet customer demand for Star Wars toys.  >:(

Who thought it would be a good idea NOT to put this on the Walgreens site anyway?

Boom! I used Brickpicker to find the closet Wally that had these in stock and headed straight over. Grabbed a fresh case right off the pallet - love that!

I just got the one but am thinking two is probably better for flanking Vader or what have you.

I can only pray the Walgreens exclusive will be this easy to snag.

Wow, good stuff guys...that helps a lot. Thanks! Still have to rewatch that I think, maybe with captioning this time to make it clearer.

i would like to have seen an episode with the wolves attacking this new group. No one to worry about rooting for, just an orgy of violence.

So where did those 2 dipsticks head off to at the end? can they expect to live long after ripping off Daryl?

What the hell was that??

I spent nearly the whole hour completely bewildered...I actually thought I had missed an episode somewhere along the line that would have made sense of whatever the heck happened. I am going to have to go back and re-watch the whole thing just to get some kind of clue to what was going on.

I did grasp that it was Negan's gang looking for the 3 weirdos...he only likes willing cooch, or whatever the hell that guy said. But like, nothing else made sense that whole episode.

Why are you lying in wait with cars and automatic weapons for 3 losers on foot with one pistol between them? Did they think they had stolen a car or something? (Ok, maybe)

What in the hell were those 3 idiots doing anyway? trying to round up their old gang from high school? WTF were "Patty" and who were the Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen lookalikes in the cabin?

I still don't get how they burned the whole forest up - what was the combustible agent? Gas? Dude's explanation was pretty sketchy.

Why was everything that came out of those 3 people's mouths practically incomprehensible? All that crap about "earning" and being "on your knees" was baffling. Even the "Claimer" gang made more sense than that.

Why would anyone choose Sasha over Rosita???

But the stupidest thing of all was the ending. Daryl is about to take them back to Alexandria where their lives will be infinitely better, they already know they can trust him because he came back to help them, and they STILL decide to screw him over and split? WHY??? Were they planning to go back to Negan's crew? or just take off on their own? That was completely asinine on every level.

It was hard to enjoy the episode at all really because I was just so confused throughout the whole thing. (I guess I am just thick , the rest of you guys seemed to get it)

It concerns me that the show has semed to settle into a pretty predictable formula, they inevitably run into some "bad" group and have to battle it out with them and ultimately triumph and then wash, rinse, repeat. I'm actually pretty sick of that. Why does EVERY group have to be bad for example? Why couldn't they run into a another group like their own? Or maybe just focus on the walkers for a season, that's the name of the show right? This whole idea of the world fell apart and everyone became a rabid psychopath or helpless weakling is getting tiresome.

Didn't mean to sound so grumpy. Just a hard episode to follow, IMHO.

Rats. Thanks for the update though, any trip to Walmart averted is a plus.  ;)

So they decided to run it during Grey's Anatomy rather than Heroes Reborn? Talk about succumbing to the Dark to your base , guys!  :D

Got this set yesterday and am loving it. The greasepaint Stormtrooper doesn't do much for me but the others are all worthy additions. Had considered maybe trying to get multiples of these guys but with the rate the line is expanding I don't think I am going to have room for stuff like that anymore.  :(

Chopper is grumpy as hell and he was a hot seller so i dont know WTF kind of point Sansweet is making there.

I'm mostly surprised some kid in my home town is doing a SW podcast and I never even heard of him. It's a pretty small collecting community here, but I guess the younger generation flies under the radar.

Looks like some figures finally got re-stocked online. I was able to order Phasma, but still no Maul.

And it comes out Friday - yay!  ;D

I have a good feeling about this one, unlike Kmart Kylo and Walgreens Wrath'o'Vader, which I am unlikely to ever see in an actual store here.  >:(

Yeah, he was a hell of a Comedian too. I approve.  :)

I didn't realize Tom Payne had been cast also. Business is about to pick up!

So...are we going with Glenn is still alive?

I'm thinking he got a save from Jesus at this point.

Ah, I see what you did there.  ;) Well played, sir.

We lost Leatherface... :'(
