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...

Oh boy... that's concerning.  Super 7 charges a full $5 more for a figure than Funko does, and they don't distribute to retail.  Also quite frankly they don't make as good a product.

If everything now becomes Super 7 style like He-Man and Street Fighter, and the prices are $15 each, and the distribution isn't at retail, I'm out.  If they can continue to do what Funko's been doing, then okay.

Yeah, that looks right.  Never mind.  I'm not following 6" very closely these days.

I've seen social media reports on the Black Series 6" Scariff Trooper starting to hit, but haven't heard anything yet about Black Series 3.75" version (or 3.75" Black Series Cassian) though....

I went into a TRU last night and they had an endcap overflowing with the 6" Scariff Trooper.   They must have had close to 75 of them in the store.

Stop worrying about politics and try reading about Star Wars for a bit :P

- Casssian Andor
- Scarif Trooper

Tomorrow, Jeff.  Tomorrow.

Thanks for the links though. :)

I don't think I've even seen promo images of these ones yet?
