I feel terrible for you guys who have managed to find kick ass troop builder 2-packs for $11 only to discover a slight paint blemish.  Must be rough.  These things are half the price of "real" TBS figures - why don't you just buy two sets to ensure you get a solid paint job and call it a day?

I DID BUY TWO SETS. READ THE ******* POST, *******.

Comic book logic. The Governor has resigned himself to the fact he IS the villain due to events and a psychotic mentality. We aren't even in "just doing what it takes to survive in this world" rationales anymore. The prison is not the only secure place in Georgia. Clearing walkers is safer than gun battles with other survivors.

Oh, yeah, two pretty lesbians discussing guns. If I hadn't watched Talking Dead, I'd have no idea they were.

I'm all for them never using this packaging again. Not seeing the figures you are buying is too frustrating.

Here's why. I buy the sets. One tech has sloppy messed up shoulder insignia. I have lots of the old tech, I can live with that. Black uniformed officer has a messed up looking right shoulder joint...flash and a rough surface. This irritates me a lot, more than sloppy paint (which does irritate me...I've passed up figures I never saw again because noticabley sloppy paint on a $10 figure is not acceptable).

So I buy that set again,  cuz quality errors happen right? This time the officer has a similar left shoulder joint, flash and rough texture. I give up. Maybe if these make it to clearance I'll get a decent copy of the figure.  Maybe I should box both of them up and exchange them and when they ask say "I JUST HAVE COLLECTOR OCD."  :(

Weird thing at 5 Below was the non-Lego accessory packs designed for Legos. Brick Warriors?

In my opinion, the first useless SW figure was Spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Because it wasn't poseable at all. And you had to buy potato chips to send off for it. had its defenders. The old "he doesn't do anything in the films but stand there" crowd. I guess they forgot the scene where he sits down....yes, a ghost sits down.

I never got the Jedi Spirits cinema scene because of that.

It's subjective. There's deluxe figures that useless outside of their intention, like the ones with magnets on their feet. Or those ROTS "driver" figures that were permenently seated.

Remember when vintage carded Wedge was sought after?

Pepperidge Farm remembers...

Bricken used to run Topless Robot, and the site improved since he left.

I'm tired of these "negative attention" lists that anyone can write (and does), almost always based on petty crap and lacking any humour  ( the author probably thought he was hilarious). Invoking "kids" is also a good way for me to dismiss anything anyone says about anything, especially when we are talking about toys with a large collector following.

The lie that was the truth, "I'm a pirate."

Also, I didn't think about it until the next day, but this episode fits into the "Do you get to come back?"
from the season opener.

Yeah, tons of little black hats....everyone has.

Reminds me.

How come China grey market sellers rarely  have accessories?

How come no one custom casts accessories like that? Or am I out of the loop?

There's a few "super articulated" figures with not-so-great elbow movement. Hoth Han comes to mind.

Also starring David Morrissey as Snake Plisskin.

Mostly predictable episode once he meets the family.

Except...I did not expect part two.

That maybe leaves us with one episode with Rick and Co. before the mid-season break.

I'd have stayed where's there is pepperoni sticks and a safe place to sleep.

I think the store ever put them out yet if they got them in.

The only other SW figure in the store, besides those scanning sets, is a vintage AOTC Obi-Wan.

Saw a Helicarrier at TJ Maxx for $39.99

Really?  I felt like 2009 was still a **** ton of product... 

The sales drop-off on the chart, not the amount of product released.

Finally found them at retail...not that I'd been searching hard. Still no Ewok sets.

Painted hands on the officer... :( but at least he has the right colored ankle joints.

2008 = the launch of Clone Wars, both TV show and the CW theatrical movie push.

It also kicked off the mega-vehicle craze with the AT-TE and BMF/Falcon.

True, but man the drop off the next year was huge.
