I got a GD'd speck of dust in my eye when Rick got Judith back in his arms.

This episode was excellent.  This was a huge screw you to the same critics of every season (It starts slow, they stay in one place too long, etc, etc.)

I also agree that Conan was a great guest on TD.  He didn't stick out, which is high praise when you're sharing the couch with Nicotero and Gimple who are always great.

Instead of screen swipes, we are going to get a very large blinding lens flare right in the middle of the screen.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I assumed that one of the things Disney saw when purchasing the property were the dollars being left on the table with regards to an OOT release.

Bought one last night. The size of this thing is super impressive.

I like that it is closer to the costume from the first Cap film.

Also, the army of Ultron's behind them.

And on topic, you find the $60 price tag of the new MF reasonable?  I'm still not sold. Granted, I fully expect to hear all the grumbling next year when the BMF returns for the movie at $300. I feel like $40 has always been the ceiling price for a value toy. At $60, parents are usually expecting something in the deluxe range.

Three years ago, no.  The 30" figures are $30-35, and the detail on this far surpasses those, at least from the pictures.  $60 puts you right into pricing for a video game, probably the target.

Of course, this could look like a turd once we see real pics of it, raher than the Hasbro photography which may change my mind.  I am also curious to see how a figure looks next to this. How off is the scale?

Yeah, I sure didn't get the Jakks Pacific giant Vader either. Something a clueless Aunt would buy a kid to try to impress, but not a toy to be played with at the end of the day. But at least it is a perceived value...and the "shampoo bottle" figures fill the large cheap niche even better, and are manageable enough in size.

You couldn't be more wrong.  I grabbed a Jakks Vader for my son, and one for my nephew, clearance at Target.  My son loves this toy and is playing with it constantly.  He has saber duels with him, he chokes out the Jar Jar plush.  He loves it.

People are mad about this thing, but they already made US a Millenium Falcon, so why not a cheap one for kids to enjoy, and for retail to move more quickly, than a $150-$200 item, ya know?  That's all they're doing here.

Clearly price point is a major focus for Hasbro right now...  Get things affordable to sell more quantity.  Stuff like this is a necessity.  Not my cup of tea either, personally, but the need's not lost on me either.  It's how I view 5POA figures.

My fear there is Hasbro's going to take 4" completely that direction and 6" the collector line.  I think that's a still very real possibility in the near future.  Especially with new films rolling out, which obviously will grab for the kid dollar and attention far harder than they'll grab for ours.  :-\

Stuff like this Falcon though, it's pretty cool for a kid I think...  Especially when kids can't get that $50, $60, or far more expensive ship that we can blow $ on and not bat an eye.
I LOVE this item.  The BMF is more of a playset.  This is a ship to have dogfights with.  I would have loved to had something like this when I was 8 years old.  I will definitely be buying one for my son.

People bitch about George Lucas, but these films and the first GI Joe raped my childhood.  Bleech.

Best part is the picture on the packaging.  Kids that age should not be watching Alien!!  LOL!  That girl's parents will be dealing with night terrors for months.

We keep hearing that Harrison Ford's injury has left the production scrambling. First, the shooting schedule had to be changed. Then, we heard that the film was looking at changing the script and enlarging Oscar Isaacs role to compensate. Disney denied that. And now the latest rumor is that J.J. Abrams asked to push the release date back to May 4, 2016. Latino Review doesn't directly pin Abrams' request to the break (they instead say that Abrams "thinks that his Star Wars should be released in May like all the other Star Wars movies have been."), but it would still make sense, if the break is anywhere near as bad as the rumors have been saying.

The Latino Review article further states that Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm agrees with Abrams, but it's Bob Iger and Disney who are determined to get this film out in December 2015. As always, beware of stories quoting unnamed sources. [Latino Review via Slashfilm)

A no-brainer two pack would have been two Stormies.
