Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Toy Rumors

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.

One of the Targets downtown here seems to have done the same thing with the more collectible figures.

Do we even know what figures are in wave 3?

Reis O'Brein posted at Funko Funactic and said the Garthim re-orders are still going through.

I managed to get a few of them but still need Ursol and Kira... and the regular Jen if she's different than the Landstrider one.

Then there's the lingering question of Garthim.  I registered at Funkofunatic to try and ask, but I'm waiting for the account to be approved.

I wonder what this means for the Garthim set and the hoped-for Golden Girls individual releases.  It's going to be insanely disappointing if the NYCC Garthims are all that ever get out to collectors.   :(

Quite frankly even at $10 the value was lacking... I know this is more of a niche line from a smaller company, but if they continue at $15 each I don't think the line will last much longer.  I just don't see how I can justify $65 shipped for a wave of four little figures with almost no articulation...
