It would interesting if FTWD turned out to be an anthology season show, like American Horror Story. Next season a whole new group of characters, maybe even location.

But I doubt they'd be that creative.

The neighbor husband coming home to almost be a victim was almost comical. Because BOOM! (hey, man, nice shot), the army shows up like the Umbrella corporation at the end of the first Resident Evil movie. No one heard them, they just appear as if teleported in.

I expect that plane to crash, instead it leered off course.

Only 3 episodes left....not sure why they ordered so if they weren't sure about it. TWD's 1st season had that many, but it was an unproven concept.

You can make your own with a regular version and an unhouse-broken puppy  :P

Chino Hills CA Target. Its funny seeing a full peg of these with bare pegs everywhere else. This set is one to a box.

According to EE's case listing, it's the only set that isn't one per case in the first wave

Someone must've gotten the other and the sole BB8 UNKARS THUG JAKKU SCAVENGER set

Stormtrooper/TIE PIlot pack at Wal-Mart for $7.

Actually the first Rebels items I've bought. I wish the stormtrooper could sit better.

Anyone close to a Meijer, they have 10% off of select Force Awakens toys. One store I went to didn't have any regular figures left.

So that really is the old cut elbow Vader? Like people are saying?

I bought nada today.

Except a 2005 Barada figure I found at a garage sale.  Nada but Barada!

I was briefly tempted by a flame trooper, but the only one left had sloppy paint ops.

Also, Hero Mashers Bossk...but I kinda heard Mashers suck.

Will the stores actually stock them. Nice "limited" disclaimer.

Still not convinced SA still has a real future, just a prolonged death. Talk of TRU getting the Vintage collection with clam shells. So at least $15 figures, probably.

Warping, rubbery wings...oh, boy.

Based on the TIE and X-Wing, I expect this new Falcon will be made entirely of nerf foam.

POTF vehicles were masterpieces  compared to this doggy chew toy thing.

The owner hasn't opened them yet...18 hours later.

Toy geeks are weird. OPEN THE THINGS ALREADY.

Same when no one could explain to the sister why she couldn't go sit next to her sick boyfriend... for ****'s sake, a simple "people are turning into zombies" would have sufficed.  Is this some alternate universe where the word zombie doesn't exist?

Yes, this has been said by the creators of TWD. There's no pop culture undead in this world. Or Haitian zombies, either.

I find that in stark contrast to most vampire stories in media, where vampires at least exist in legend. Same with werewolves. Maybe because zombies are a newer thing or because their mysterious nature is more essential to the drama.

Also the protests struck me as stupid - the police brutality thing is a big issue in our real world today, but there would be 24 hour, wall to wall media coverage of people turning into monsters and not dying until they get a bullet in the brain pretty quickly, which would be the end of the protests.

Maybe the media reports are inconsistent? We assume all the recently dead everywhere are coming back, maybe that's not the case yet. Yeah, you'd think if dead people were seen roaming around, as undead don't hide, it would be all over the news even has hard as it would be to accept. No way authorities could prevent that for long, if really at all.

What Cinema Sins on youtube calls "playing the pronoun game"...

Yeah, left the food. I guess the principal freaked them out.

By the end Mom's already, "screw this, saving my one else."  >:D

Guess this won't be like The Strain where people become aware of vampires but try to about their daily lives anyway. (And are often dumb enough to be out at night).

Plain white clone (revised helmet) and the commander from the Anti-Hailfire droid battlepack for 50 cents each last week.
