Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Fear the Walking Dead

Ex-wife had a real doctor to tell her what was going on.

Yeah, they screwed over LA to save their own. Nice work! Who is worse now? The Army for planning to abandon or euthanize everyone or the protagonists for releasing a horde and getting who knows how many killed? (Madison really, really, really hates her neighbors...even ones she liked...didn't even see her look for the Asian husband next door at the base, either.)

How did tortured private get back to the army compound and past the horde in time to confront them...I like to think he was in the pick-up bed the whole time...that's the only way i can rationalize the timing. Otherwise, he takes a vehicle, is moments behind them, but it more interested in payback than assisting his fellow soldiers.

The someone got bitten but hasn't told anyone yet was OBVIOUS. Why? Because other than Salazar's daughter getting winged, the escape was too easy.

Talking Dead didn't address much of anything of relevance. the house in the distance, the infected boyfriend, what happened to detainees who go downstairs (death, but that's still an assumption),

What I would've done.
Daniel Salazar is shot by the soldiers after saying "I'd save your ammunition..." and dies. So much for glib dialogue.
Like McMetal said, Nick gets eaten behind the doors, along with Strand.
Private shoots Salazar's daughter...kills her...goodbye Salazars. (i thought he did kill her for a second)
Doctor goes with the group, takes compressed air gun with her.
Ex-wife lives.

Army pretty sloppy to leave an arena of undead like.  But they are falling apart.  I think their tactics of rushing into a house/building are idiotic, because that's exactly where the undead have an advantage. But then they stopped to use a 50 caliber rifle to snipe a zombie they could've dispatched in under a minute. There's the question as to whether Lt Moyers was killed by walkers or his own men.

I don't think the barber is sympathetic (he only seems so because we know what he didn't know). But I'm not sure why the soldier was so tight lipped...while being skinned alive. "Screw it, we're pulling out, you civilians are screwed!"

The dress-up/trash the rich people's house as just a waste of screen time on a 6 episode first season.

Good to hear they are salvageable. Keep in mind parents/kids aren't gonna reshape anything in boiling water. All the talk about parents complaining about breaking overpriced bent WOOKIES X-wings.

Mosep has left the listings.

I'll just get those, I won't.


Saw this at Tuesday Morning for $13...wait, that was the Star Wars Command Rancor Revenge set.  :D

Pilfering is alive and well at walmart.

Arguably a better figure. Removable helmet (that's Han Solo, right?), waist articulation...

Rubber can melt plastic. It's something I've learned from a vintage toy collecting magazine way back, as well as having some rubber treaded Stompers tanks that melted the plastic bin they were stored in!

Yeah, some figures will yellow no matter what. My 2006 Commander Cody is the best (worst) example of that.

In terms of fans noticing flawed pieces of their collections, years ago I noticed  that GI JOE figures from 2002-2005 get cracking torso's from their necks down, but little attention has been  paid to problem to this day (fans moved on to Modern "gen 3" stuff). The problem more or ruined some of my collection, as the only solution would be dismantling the figures.

So? Action figures are meant to be played with!  :P

I keep forgetting to look for these sets. Such is my enthusiasm for current product.

I am growing concerned about the availability of this line. There are five Walmarts between where I live and I work and I have yet to even catch one of the wave 1 figures in a store. I have a set coming via the website, but I'm not looking forward to the goo-gone surgery I'm going to have to perform on them.  >:(

I hope the follow-up waves are easier to find...

According to Wal-Mart (via Jedi Temple Archives), the few out there now were intended for force friday, but more of waves one along with wave two will arrive in October.

Of course, we've heard stuff like that before.

Why does Han Solo's box have a picture of David Duchovny on it?

Delayed long enough that the next SA waves will be announced and army building fans will be like "forget the 7 pack, I'd rather spend money on more articulated figures"

Help me out here: when Madison was hiding under the car, wasn't that a zombie?  I didn't notice any head wounds but thought the eyes were funked out.  Might just be me over-interpreting.

Yeah, it was. That dead one was it for zombies in the episode.  I guess there were other dead ones lying around but who can tell.

Zombie free, aside from  dead ones.
There are zombies on your zombie show?

I feel like if the army is as ruthless as they are implying, that the neighborhood would've heard a lot more shooting nearby. I guess everyone sort of ignored it for the past 9 days.

You'd think when the national guard walked up, you'd tell them "oh yeah, this woman with us has necrosis from a crushed foot and is gonna die soon - little help?"

Answered this episode. But she might be worse off.

Army officer has a to be a jerk, doesn't he?

Why did Madison get the gun lying on the street...all that risk to see what's outside and she doesn't get anything useful?

Coming soon  at least to Canada
Star Wars Episode VII: Forest Mission 5 Figure Pack

Another way to get Chewie and BB-8
You'd think they'd change the Resistance Trooper figure's skin color for some set, thus making fans have to buy it again.
Surviving clone wars big gatling gun. You'd think they'd find a spring action weapon that doesn't need a two handed grip.
