Given what we're seeing, what would Hasbro & retailers want to charge for something like the ARC-170 or the upgraded X-Wings today?  $100?  The pricing on this vehicle line is looking much more like a cash grab, especially considering the way the designs have been dumbed down.

Some years back, we already saw the ARC-170 jump to some $65 to $70 for that deluxe vehicle line that lasted 2 waves (the second was the CLone Wars Y-Wing). And in 2005, it was $29.99.

The Vintage boxed Gunship was $119.99, the 3 3/4" scale gunship began retail existence during AOTC (2002) at $40, then down to $30...then sky's the limit! Though, the vintage boxed one included turrets and a few figures.

God's Will. Alexandria is a modern Gomorrah.

It was safe before, then Rick brought SIN in.   :o

He didn't have FAITH, he hid weapons. He coveted a neighbour's wife. Carol stole chocolate.

He tore down Gabriel's flyers.

No one was noticing the tower crumbling.

Signs this takes place in an alternate universe:
gasoline doesn't go bad
US Army uses Russian-style RPG's
dumpsters have enough space to crawl under.

Also, the dead come back and eat the living.  :P

Who is gonna perish next week?
My monkey is on Deanna. (BAD MONKEY)
Eugene? In some noble sacrifice?

Blood Sisters gave us a some small revelations about Sabine's past.

Not bad, kinda "meh".  Chopper's being owning it lately. Also, a GONK droid.

20% off Force Awakens stuff at Toys R Us.

Yeah, means regular figures are $7.19. What a bargain.  :(
Still worth a look for other stuff. Two packs are $12 with that discount.

What they need is a catapult to deal with herds. Easy to find ammo for a catapult.

Also, a big boulder ala Indiana Jones, or a giant cheese wheel like Z Nation.

Yeah, some obligatory it's a cartoon/small galaxy moments.

Agent Kallus has nothing better to do that run a small blockade? Isn't that job for a fleet officer? See, that was a spot to use another OT Imperial Officer.

Not annoyed by no mention of Ackbar, because that story stank of EU's own "it's a small galaxy" moment.

Quarrie doesn't fly, how'd he get to that planet?  ???
Or did he mean, doesn't fly fly, like a test pilot/fighter pilot?

Hondo vs. Vizago...Hondo has personality, Vizago not so much...he hasn't been characterized beyond "black market guy".

I'm starting to doubt these will show up at 5 Below.

If peeps could get working RPG's in the USA, things would get ugly...uglier.  :(

Someone pointed out the not current issue M-16, but  Abraham could've picked that up on the road...and did, because we saw his flashback...he wasn't on active duty.

I'm wondering about the walkers. Some more decayed and more supernatural like now (Swamp Thing walker...almost a phyto zombie from Z Nation).

"We thought everyone was fighting this thing" - guy

No, over in LA, some people were contributing to the problem by releasing stadiums full of walkers.

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?

Patty was the fuel truck Daryl found at the end. The 3 went to a fuel company lot "Pattrick fuels" or something. The license plate said "Patti" on it. (Who moved the truck out in the woods, we may never know)

The dead people were people they knew who got caught in the fire they started to kill the walkers.

I still don't get how they burned the whole forest up - what was the combustible agent? Gas? Dude's explanation was pretty sketchy.
Gas, hence the truck and the fuel company compound.

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.

Deliberate confusion by the writers to create mystery by using characters who call a truck "patti" and are vague in their dialogue.

Why would anyone choose Sasha over Rosita???

Abraham isn't all there.

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.

Can't fix stupid. But they also have  reason to be distrustful of anyone. Remember how Rick and Co. reacted to Aaron's invite.

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

I didn't get the "Patti" thing until Talking Dead mentioned it.  :-\

What bugged me. The ambush everyone had hero armor, Daryl gets a flesh wound. Abe and Sasha leave behind their enemies' guns and ammo because it's not like those are hard to find.

Also, from what I read,  it's unlikely an insulin would still be usable this far into the pocky lips.

When did the US military start using RPG's like that?  Must be some alternate universe thing.

Stupid girl dies stupidly. Die-abetic, die!

Kept expecting the inside walker to get a burst of energy and break the glass.

Rosita vs. Sasha. I'd take Rosita.

I picked up one of the Chewbacca's tonight and noticed that all of the Darth Vaders were gone.  Looks like he's still a good seller.


We lose. Hasbro wins. Cancel all SA figures.

A month long suspense until we find out for sure...the producers are so cruel.  >:D

Nothing much happened tonight...little bits...but we won't bore you with how Rick ran all the way back home. Carol's taking a long nap.  Teens fighting over a girl who ran away.  Deanna family breakdowns. Father Gabriel's suspicious activities.
Eugene's so-crazy-it-almost-might-work plan to get rid of the surrounding walkers. Rosita's plans for hosting Enid's quinceanera put on hold. Morgan trying to convert his captured Wolf to his new religion: Eastmantology.

All leaving us in suspense as to the burning question on all our minds... TOBIN, WHY WON'T YOU ANSWER YOUR RADIO??

I see a lot of griping elsewhere about tonight's episode (got some people's goat  :P), but it was obvious from the previews what/who it would focus on.

I found it alright. Not sure why Morgan left his town entirely...did he burn the whole town down? But he had to leave, because that's the story.

The NOW time ending was the only part where I got annoyed. Once again we might have the "someone keeping something a secret that they should outright tell everyone, but instead it'll lead to tragedy" but that's every tv show these days.
