I also read the note as just a passing **** you to whoever comes along after the owners were dead more than an actual threat.

Apparently I missed something.   ???

Apparently John Glenn isn't quite 100% universally adored.

You can do ship to store too - it's online.  They have $25 off purchase of $100, but it's still $280ish even with the 5% savings.

My wife picked one up for $204 in a no-sales-tax state.  That was a Walmart price match at that $220 price that was posted the other day, then 5% off with the Red Card.

Then yesterday we found the $25 off $100 coupon, if they'll let her apply it retroactively that'd bring it down to $180.

I got asked if I'd pay $39.99 for Grievous.

Same here.  I did say I'd go up to $25 for a higher quality version of Lando, but the $40 for Grievous was a hard, hard no.

I don't buy 6" really, but I did say that more accessories would be worth the hike to me.  If they're upping the value that's one thing, if they're just raising the price - no thanks.

I got $29.99 for 6 inch Bespin Han (no), $19.99 for 6 inch General Lando (yes), $24.99 for 6 inch General Lando with accessories (no), $29.99 for Grievous (yes), $14.99 for 3.75 inch Chewie (no)

I got asked if I'd pay $39.99 for Grievous.


I also wasn't happy about the question about which scale I'd prefer if they only did one.  I answered 3.75, but I bet I'm in the minority on that.


You're going to find yourself on a very lonely island with that idea.

"Godspeed, John Glenn.”   :'(

My wife and I were just talking about John Glenn and what an amazing ass kicker he was, and how people of successive generations (ours) can even begin to match up to a stud like him and some of his peers.

  • Fighter pilot in WWII and Korea
  • Test pilot
  • First American to orbit the earth
  • Took a ride on a Space Shuttle and spent nine days in space at age 77
  • Served as a Senator for 25 years

Any one of those is a big deal for anyone's legacy.  He did all five without breaking a sweat.

Who, under 50, would you even begin to compare to the likes of John Glenn?  You could probably pick a few business people like Elon Musk that have done some pretty cool things, but its hard to think of anyone even remotely in his league.

I keep hearing him described as the last, inarguable American hero.  I'm having a hard time coming up with an argument against the idea.

The BioShock games probably won't ever be made BC. They were announced late last year, but apparently 2K was already in the middle of porting them to the current consoles, and why would you give people the old games for free when you can sell them new "remastered" versions instead? So the Xbox 360 versions are kind of stuck in BC limbo.

Anyway, be sure to check out BioShock: The Collection for Xbox One, available at a retailer near you, for $49.99.

They shouldn't list them as in progress then on that voting page...

As for the 3-pack, I saw it at Best Buy yesterday at lunch... it was only $29.99

If it hit $20 I'd probably pick it up.

Wait, why is there another new Spiderman reboot / recast / reimagining?  What was wrong with the last kid?

I got reply, a pretty standard one saying we're sorry you're not happy with the product and will forward your comments to the product development team.

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.
