I had $ at TRU expiring so I stopped by today and they put out a new case of 2-packs so I got bb8 set for $2 and change. :)  Been a busy weekend.

Has anyone else noticed that these boxed figures can easily be opened, and then resealed?  It is a MOMC nightmare.

FINALLY found a Chopper for my son in the 2-Pk with Zeb.  He is very excited!

A February release for Black Panther?  Wow.  February is usually where most movies go to die.  That is, unless, if Disney/Marvel are trying to claim a part of the year that generally goes un-served by genre films.

Maybe they will try tying into Black History Month?

To paraphrase Dr. Ian Malcom:
You do plan on having ZOMBIES on your ZOMBIE show?

Got Wave 2 of the Die Cast ships at Target earlier. Red 5 X-Wing (with open S-foils), Red 3 X-Wing (closed S-foils) and the TIE Fighter. There's also a Vulture Droid from ROTS in the wave.

All the WalMarts near here got a huge skid with both waves in it.  They dropped their price to $3.92 as well.

The HMF looks really awesome once the stickers are applied.  It is HUGE though.  I saw them as cheap as $15 near the end.

Like a small-scale Hero series version?  It will be blasphemy here, but I am ALL in on these.  I find it interesting to watch my son play with his toys (not just his SW toys, but across all lines) and he could give a damn about the action figures.  He just loves the ships.  He loves his Hero Series MF, but it is too unruly to play with.  This is awesome and reminds me of the deluxe Action Fleet toys (which he loves).

Still, I hope they reissue the BMF as I did not ever get that and would love another crack at it.

One word review?  Dull. There was almost no characterization in this and they clearly blew the bank on The Thing and Torch effects (Torch effect was the one shining part of this movie).

Doom was a pile of garbage. Just awful. I could go on and on and on (just ask my wife) about how they screwed this up. This should be a cautionary tale that making changes for the sake of making changes is a bad idea. Respect the source.


Target has FINALLY put that army of 6" Slave Leia and Greedo on clearance, along with the rest of the Jabbas and Bikers.

If these include digital copies, I'm interested.

Caught Ant Man last weekend and it easily cracked the top five from Marvel for me.  Great storyline and the right mix of action and humor with lots of little ties into the bigger Marvel U. I keep waiting for something Marvel to fail,  but everything they touch turns to gold.
EVERYONE is waiting for Marvel to fail. I actually saw someone predicting that Cap 3 will be the one. My bet is this person probably predicted that every picture since Avengers is goinG to be the one. Sooner or later, they will be right, I suppose.

Forgot to mention there was a B1G1 going on.  Too bad they didn't have the Luke and Wampa set too.

SCORE!  Target had the Han and Taun Taun and it rang up for $24.99.  Grabbed a second for $12.50, two of them out the door for the $40 that it would cost at WalMart for one!

Hopefully the quality is better than their die-cast ships.  The ships look nice, but the "play" features like rotating guns, landing gear, etc are... lacking.  The X-Wing for example looks great, except for the plastic parts, mainly the cannons.  Bent and warped and fragile.  The landing gear on the X-Wing, Snow Speeder and Falcon are all crap.  Still, for $8, they are pretty cool toys and my son loves them.

I've seen this pop up all over social media, but no one has commented on the two TIE's in scale that are flanking this bugger in that later shots.
