What I didn't love so much:
Lori still being on alive, on the show, etc
Carl/Hershel's daughter burgeoning romance - blecchhh (age difference anyone?)
going through the cell blocks in the dark at the end there? What was the rush?

Carl just has a crush on whats-her-name. If it gets mutual...ick.

Yeah, the rush to secure the whole prison and doing stupid things. It's easy to second guess the characters after the fact, but the dark cell block mess seemed like a potential disaster from the get go...especially when you take the ONLY DOCTOR you have with you when your WIFE IS 9 MONTHS PREGGERS. No reason for Herschel to have gone with them on what amounted to a stumbling around in dark passage ways. And you'd think at this point they'd have learned to be suspicious of any corpse they haven't put down themselves, but success leads to carelessness

I guess this ep takes place after Grievous dies...oh, wait...

Name was KILLANEE or something. I saw it twice and that's the best I could make out.

I peak ahead and this arc last 4 episodes total. It better pick up next week.

Jedi Temple Archives reports figures are showing up in Singapore...Boba Fett with climbing backpack, exploding tan Battle Droid, light-up saber ROTS Anakin and light up blaster Sandtrooper.

That last one was a surprise, I thought he'd debut in 2013.

Meijers has vintage starfighter vehicles at $20 and Movie Heroes ones at $25 (I think). Deluxe/class 1 at $14. Until the end of the month, IIRC. Battle packs at $18....not that they have anything new here.

Got a $5 Sandtrooper at 5 Below that opened up last month. Apparently all they get is that AOTC wave (with Vader and sandtrooper repacks). I've mildly tempted by that MEGO style Darkseid they have from that failed Mattel line. They had Thundercats, too for $4.

TRU had some sale $35 on Star Wars, get a free Pod racers battle pack yesterday and today only.

Front Runners

More tension amongst rebels.

Typical evil king who usurped the throne and his toady advisor (or snaily advisor in this case).

Typical old noble deposed king locked away.

Some new robot they won't make into a toy.

Why did Anakin and Obi-Wan take Rex back with them? 

Where the heck is DC nation? Did they change the schedule at the last minute? Comcast says Green Lantern and yet there's a show about dragons on.

I expect to see that shuttle reissued when the ARC Trooopers Battle Pack is reissued. Never of next never.

I probably couldn't care less if they made spider-Maul. Not sure why they even did that in the show...will they explain how he got that way?

I'd rather see new tooling go toward something of significance...even like Lava Flea or something I probably also wouldn't buy.

No, more like Lucasfilm wanting Hasbro to kill 3 3/4, and Hasbro said "we'll make consumer  friendly $20 items, will that shut you up?"

The N1 was delayed because Hasbro had to rush episode 1 stuff because Lucasfilm didn't give them enough notice.

And retailers don't give a @#$%% about restocking toys anymore.

Got this guy over the weekend.  Broke my post 1989 rule, but couldn't pass it up for $75.  Sounds work, but no lights.  Missing just a few minor things - including the General, but that's okay.

Nice find.

Major Storm is the figure that came with the vehicle. He's unremarkable.  I've never owned a complete Major Storm or General.

How much will they gouge for the Endor AT-AT? Probably so much you can buy two old ones for the same price and customize them.

Maybe the Trade Federation designed them to be sold to organic armies?  Maybe the design predates the Battle Droids? The STAP would be another one, why isn't it just a flying drone?

Why don't the AAT's hatches lock from the inside?

And one of the reasons tanks have anti-personnel weapons is to prevent infantry from running up and attaching magnetic mines, etc. to the tank.

Then again, when have the AAT's ever used their weapons. They never use the hull rockets. Those nubs below the front hatch are lasers, too, according to the Episode 1 cutaway tech book.

So, yeah, we have the silly manuevors to make some "jock vs. nerd"/pissing contest scenes.
