Tusken Raider, even with the swivel elbows, ain't bad.

I never got any of those figures. I knew they'd be blown out some day.


I thought Harry Carey was a baseball announcer and had died years ago?

Harry Carey Jr. was a character actor notable for appearing in many westerns as far back as the 1940's and as recently as the mid 1990's. No relation to the announcer, he was the son of another actor.

Strange way to end a 700 issue series.

I predict that within a year, the Punisher kills  this possessed Spider-Man and takes his place as Spider-Punisher, leading to some confusion as to whether his intent is to punish arachnids or criminals.

Then Peter Parker is cloned back to life with the memories of himself and Dr. Doom for some reason.

These are $23.99 at

So basically the brick and mortar store was ripping local customers off. Charming.

I was just messing with some of the Nikto's and Weequay's that have been made in the past few years.  It's too bad some of the Weequay's didn't make this assortmanet because there are some pretty decent Kitbashes that can be done with between most of the Nikto and Weequays.  Just swapping heads and hands.

Kithaba and Nikto Jedi head's swap out decently, Kithaba's head being a bit tight on Nikto (I'll never remember his name). I haven't tried their hands, because I only have one of each figure.

$4.99 Rebel Fleet Troopers at AMazon currently...super saver shipping qualified, too. Kithaba is under $6, too.  $4.12 super battle droids (vintage) as well.

All the remaining Wave 17 figures have gone back up in price, except the the episode 1 repacks.

At the bargain price of $27.99!

Keep 'em.

AMC renewed the series for season 4, no surprise, but....Executive producer Glen Mazzara to leave zombie drama after Season 3

Amicable or not, it's not great news to lose executive producers two seasons in a row.  What is Kirkman or AMC's vision for the show?

They can bring back Jaxxon!

Pick-up where the vintage Marvel run ended, bad art and poorly conceived  new enemies.

True a bad way.

Yeah, $20 for one of these vs. $20 for two figures and a mini-vehicles?

I can only hope that post-Disney buy-out,  Hasbro will  be less pressured by Lucasfilm demands and go back to larger offerings.

I only ever saw one as well. Bought it and never opened it. Can I retire off it yet?

Maybe they'll do an OT repaint with rebel pilot and astro mech.

One came with a battle pack...or was that a different glider.

Saw a leaked tape of  the first 9 minutes and it doesn't shed any light.

Got it backwards.

Jimmy Fallon can be funny but as a host, he's sooo awful.

The thing people forget, The Tonight Show is bupkis. It's should not be a Holy Grail to anyone. It was all about Carson. Had Johnny Carson not been on the air for decades, The Tonight Show would've been a forgotten program, probably canned in the 60's.  Who even remember who hosted before Carson? Steven Allen? Maybe?  ??? Any late night host is better off NOT getting the job because they will never measure up to a "legend".
