I don't generally bother writing companies to complain, but I went ahead and sent that to Funko in an email.  If they respond, I'll come back and share...

I didn't know about the voting so I was just checking it out... I was really excited to see that they're working on the Bioshock games.

I'd love a day when I can just install everything on the XB1 and shelve the 360.

Here's a side by side of the Snow I got vs. that promo image.  Honestly it's embarrassingly bad to the point where I'm thinking about emailing them and asking them to take these figures back.  So freaking off the mark... and it's not just the face.  The detail throughout the entire torso, cape, and body is terrible compared to what we were shown.

FYI, this set is on sale at right now for $29.99.  Coupon code SNOWBALL20 gets you another 20% off.  Mine came out to $35 with shipping.  I think that code expires today, not sure how long the sale is good for.

Thanks for posting that Dave.  The worst kept secret in my family is that my wife ordered one of these for me for Christmas from Target. 

She called and they adjusted her price down to the $220 that Walmart is offering.

Wow.  I'd forgotten about the promo images, and I'd bought a Knight King a few days ago.  You're absolutely right that it's not even remotely close.  The actual figures are really pretty terrible looking overall - and it's not just this one.  For example, the Jon Snow I bought looks like it has two dots for eyes and a couple of lines for a mouth and facial hair... it doesn't look half as good as this:

Honestly looking at this has me wondering if I shouldn't sell the ones I bought before this goes any further.

Victor Guard is Benecio Del Toro's character. Tango Red is Kurt Russell's character.

UNI PILOT is a new Unicorn rebel pilot, a nod to Bronies.

SHK TROOPER YELLOW is a first order stormtrooper with ugly yellow markings.

I read the first sentence of that and thought I'd accidentally stumbled into an Episode 8 spoilers thread...

For sure.  The band I was in back in college played a show with them in Baltimore.  Would have been 2002-ish.  I'd never heard of them, and had never seen anything like it.  Total insanity.  At one point I remember the bass player breaking the head of his guitar off on some guy's head - total accident, he was just going crazy with it and hit this guy so hard that it broke right off.  He must have had a string lock or something because everyone just carried on like it had never happened.

Saw them again a few years ago here with Darkest Hour and for how awesome I think they are, Dillinger's set was so much more over the top that it made Darkest Hour look like a bunch of school girls.

Nice! How was Dillinger Escape Plan? I was working at Relapse when we signed those guys...unreal live show.

I had the pleasure of watching another Relapse band live last night...Richmond's own Windhand.  8)

Sorry, I missed this... they're always amazing.  I'm bummed that they're calling it quits, but am looking forward to the inevitable reunion tour in a few years. :)

I got my pack of those Pilots yesterday.  They're cool, but definitely odd.  Bootleg maybe?  They look the same at a glance but the closer you look the more you see differences.  The plastic seems different (cheaper?) especially on the helmet, the stance is different, the paint apps are awful and of course they have the wrong blaster.  Here's a crappy cell phone photo I took on the way out the door this morning, the real one is on the right if it wasn't obvious:

For $3 each, they'll display just fine and I'm perfectly happy with them... but they're weird.

All repacks yes?

Absolutely.  The point about shooting Tara in the back... that kind of thing is an issue all the time.  The idea that any of these guys ever escape from bad guys with guns is silly.  I mean, it's not Dr. Evil and the shark tank level silly, but if someone has a gun and you're their captive and they want to kill you, they're just going to do it.  No fuss, no drama, no long pauses, no opportunities to run away while they miss their shots at an ever increasing distance. 

Hell, there wasn't even any real reason to march Tara out of the camp to shoot her, other than the idea of not having to dispose of the body.

Other than that...I wonder if it did anything for the story.

I haven't read any of the comics, but my assumption is that at this point they need to do two things:

1) Elevate some of the second tier characters into main characters
2) Continue to establish new settlements that will eventually all have to band together to deal with the Saviors, like they did with the King Ezekiel episode. 

To me, this episode was definitely boring, but probably important in terms of advancing the story for the later part of the season.

EDIT:  Just read Matt's post - so yeah, what he said.

My buddy's 6 year old lives and breathes Minecraft.  I'm not 100% sure, but I'm guessing 7-10 year olds are into it too.

Crap, I should have posted about the B&N thing... I saw it the other day.  I ordered the Dark Crystal figures I was missing, and 8 of the Game of Thrones figures for $7.50 each... free shipping, solid deal.

Also I'm disappointed about the Garthim set, but no wings is better than no Garthim.
