The one thing we haven't seen is how it started.  It wasn't covered in the show or the comic.  I dunno...I appreciate FTWD for what they are doing.

You won't see how it really started, only how it grew/spread and things fell apart...they've said no cause will be shown.  They also said not to expect big military operations ala World War Z.

Well, at least it's not The Dawn of the Dead remake were civilization dies within 24 hours. Fast's over so quick.

Exclusives are usually not included in those things.

Again, haven't watched it yet, but do authorities in the new show know that brain trauma is required to kill the zombies?  I thought from TWD that it took quite a while for most people to figure that out.

if a teenage girl can figure out the KILLSHOT from watching a viral video of a person getting shot many times before finally going down from a headshot, then the authorities can, too.

Gotta tell you, after seeing the drug dealer zombie I'm picking up the handgun on principal alone.

What for...the principal character wasn't that bad, maybe a little clueless as to what's going on, at least he called a half-day.  ;)

I think they could've shaken things up more. Like the dealer NOT turning after dying...making us wonder if whatever hasn't progressed that far (to turning all the dead into undead). But that would risk revealing something about the cause, which they are adamant not to do, because blah-blah-mystery-blah-it would only disappoint-blah. Really, this show cannot reveal much besides a doomed L.A. (or who knows, maybe LA contains the problem and becomes a haven  :P )

This the lowest Hasbro has gotten in the 3 3/4" line. Mostly repacks with a new accessory.  Deluxe figures have usually been cash grabs but these aren't giving the buyer much of anything. Giant packs, mini vehicles, big guns...but now it's an accessory no more impressive than  ones that used to appear on basic carded figures.  Even the force Awakens figures with the weapon parts...compared to the these. It's absurd.

Some praised 5 POA as a way to keep costs down, yet these are 5 POA figures with a paltry accessory made to  INFLATE the price. Rationalize that.

the snow speeder looked cool, but seems dumbed down...probably would've been great if made by the standards of 5 years ago, before the dark times, before Disney.

Exactly...  The playset portion is really fun looking actually and detailed.  :)

I will give credit for the chess board. The undersized corridor detail is amusingly irritating. Characters crawl to the cockpit. Does the cockpit open or what? No feature is shown. Is there actual landing gear...I'm thinking there isn't. How did Castle Grayskull's laser gun get inside the ship?

It's the big ticket toy of the iconic ship for kids this year like 1978.

Kenner's original Millennium Falcon wasn't released until 1979 (insert Smashing Pumpkin's song). The big ticket item of 78 was the Death Star Space Station.

WHAT? Don't they fear parents angry letters about kids losing their heads.
(I mean, the action figures' heads, not the kids' heads.)

There's one or two sets that might be worth the $15 (?) these will be going for.

The rest are for the kool-aid drinkers. By that I mean, young kids of course,  ;)

Ok, I saw the full catalog, you can't get rid of anything on the Internet thank God.

Really happy to see there will be Rebels stuff for me to buy. Just no single carded figures apparently. cool to see the Y-Wing Scout Bomber in OT colors.

I guess all that talk about there being 9 new 6" figures was just speculation?

Don't assume everything is in the catalog. I mean, the catalogs from recent years were only partial.

Chopper's coming back but you gotta buy Zeb again to get him.  :-\

I don't consider that a spoiler, more like "expect to pay $15 for a small droid" warning.

I think people expecting most of the Rebels figures to be reissued in this line might be sith out of luck.
