This is where the frontier pushes back

Really, does the villain have writers room  to come up with that?

Wondering what the big secret is...THE TWIST...right, this isn't JJ Abrams.

So maybe this is Point Break in space.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Recent purchases
« on: December 13, 2015, 05:23 PM »
At a Wal-Mart that never seemed to put them out back in the summer, I found the part of wave with Mosep in the clearance section for the "clearance price' of $12.83. So I completed my 2015 collecting goal...buying Mosep Binneed*. That was it. Really. It might be the second Star Wars thing I've bought at retail all year. I haven't gotten any Force Awakens items. Wait until I see the movie to see if I care.

*Yeah, i could've gotten online, but I wanted  a decent paint job for my money.

I would've bought the Jawas if I ever saw them. Maybe carbonite Han Solo, too.

Is Clancy Brown required to do a voice in every cartoon series now?

Kallus, when kid starts kicking your ass, you're out of your league.

Trying to collect them all might put you in the Poe house.  :D

Lash is still loose and so is Powers Boothe.

Some one once called the AoS team the "b-team" (before the Hydra reveal in season 1). And that's what's happening, the B-Team is running what's left of SHIELD. This first half season they didn't accomplish jack diddly squat. Hydra is still around. Lash is loose again. Marooned astronaut is dead. Ward is dead but now some undead space slug host that they weren't supposed to allow on Earth.

And both notable members of that other agency are dead. Those captured inhumans are dead. And Coulson tossed away his awesome hand.

That makes me like the show, though.

New Porkins!
Good luck squeezing him into those new X-Wings.  :P

Robert Loggia from Scarface and Independence Day, among other things, has passed at 85.

Remember him by not tailgating.

That figure is  amusing. The stained boots and the armor is like a "wife beater" tank top.

IIRC,  few years back it was said that sales in boy's toys/action figure market were slumping and Hasbro told their teams to maximize profits. Add to that, increased labour costs in China  and things suck now.

The Future of the Force.

"A sith lord tried to do the same thing during the clone wars, but we stopped him."

Yeah, he's also had 15 years to do the same thing with probably no one to stop him. That's a lot of dead babies or something.

Good Guys Are Dumb moments: Two times I said "you shoulda killed that inquisitor". Once Fifth brother was knocked out and on the ground and Kanan could've decaptitate him. Ahsoka had 7th Sister at her mercy.  Yeah, yeah, Jedi don't's a kid's show...whatever.

Bad guys are needlessly evil moment: Implied slicing up the ship's passengers. What did that accomplish? No witnesses...who cares, the Empire runs the show!

Bad guys are dumb moment: Leaving the derelict transport in space with life support and the old woman (very youthful looking thanks to CGI) alive.  So again, what was the point of 5th Brotha killing those people.

What was the Watto's flying in the desert?


Just HOW much stuff are they setting up for future films?

Finn actually looks intriguing, though also kinda chunky.

Unkar Plutt is a vending/gaming repairman, and fixes the claw game in the local mall. 

There, his EU backstory is complete.

Did Sheryl Crowe used to ride with him? Has he been down that hyperspace lane more than twice? Is he high on intellectualism?
