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.

18
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.

Why were Star Wars sales huge in 2008? Or am I misreading?

The X-Men seem to have lost their luster. No wonder the Wolverine line was 5 crappy 5 POA figures

Mara Jade 150% over SRP

Anyone paying $27 for that should just send me their money instead. It makes as much sense.

Like T-Dog said, head to the coast...get a boat.

Did he say boat? he should have.

I'd like the Walking Dead spin-off show to be a What if? show.

"What if T-Dog headed for the coast?"

"What if Shane killed Rick?"

"What if Rick hadn't handcuffed Merle?"

"What if Rick's horse could talk?"

"What if Glenn became Glenda?"

Banana peels people...  Banana peels.

A tropical fruit in short supply in post-apocalyptic Georgia.

So they had 10,000 each of the four reissued characters in the 5-pack lying around?

Quote
s well as the conditions that make it impossible to offer every character in every scale.

Why is there more than one scale? Did they hire playmate's marketing person who pitched the Terminator Salvation and Star Trek lines?

I think the big reveal will be that the Governor has a zombie eye under that eye patch.

Or you can... you know... not watch it.   :-*


My general response to the recent controversies about late night talk show hosts.  I suspect most of the complainers never watch Conan or Kimmel.

However, the Talking Dead used to be more engaging. Now, not so much, especially when's there's no show people on.  And this is coming from people who watch it.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: General Rieekan watch at RiteAid

Funny they avoided making a new Cloud Car for years, saying it wouldn't appeal to the public, but it's the pilot who stuck around.

Hershell was the Man in that episode.

Carting off the dead so no one would see them get head stabbed was too risky, though.

2 assault rifles and some ammo take out a lot of walkers...could've been done sooner since the fence situation was waaay out of hand already.

Dogs chewing on that walker's guts in the opening? Black dogs, too...which were an old omen of death.

Talking Dead has become lazy (two of those folks turned walkers had names...Henry and Mr. Jacobson, but Talking Dead couldn't be bothered) and so boring I fell asleep twice and it was still on, I hung out till the end and they showed the clip from next week that was...the same clip from the end credits.

In the comics Grimes was a deputy from Cynthiana, Kentucky, they are currently in Georgia.  On the show he's from King County, GA (which does not exist?). States have more than one prison, so I can give Rick a pass on that. The gravel road never made sense, though, nor does having a tree line so close.
