12" Figures / Re: 1/6 Luke & Taun-Taun

At those prices, it better smell like a Taun Taun both on the outside and on the inside!
Post of the year candidate here.  Well done, sir.

I've noticed that we've been able to find everything at retail (usually several times) - things are restocked consistently.  Plus, there is a nice variety to the line.  Sure, there are multiple versions of the Turtles, but she has at least a dozen villains/supporting characters as well in the first year+ of the line. 

This echoes my experience with a different line I have been getting for my son, Disney's Planes.  There was one character, Rochelle, that was packed at 1 per case for one wave.  My SW experience warned me to expect a tough find on this one.  I've seen this one on three or four different occasions, and it isn't because these things sit.  Every store we frequent regularly turns over their stock (pegs empty then full then empty again).

I think other companies "get" it where Hasbro just doesn't.

I think that the league can expect more injuries like Gronk's as the trade off for taking away head injuries.  That said, I think the strategy on taking down a guy like Gronk who is so big is to go for the legs.  Unfortunate for all of us NE fans, but a perfectly legit hit.  Gronk's history of injuries have a direct correlation to the way he plays and his body type.

Also, nice Doc Ock and Vulture Easter eggs.  Sinister 6 too.

I LOVE the redesign on Spidey's costume.  Those eyes are perfect!

Red cards...  Green cards...  It's like 1996 all over again.

Is that a 6" scale ceiling fan?  :P

I think that plays into it, but one of the major tenets of the comic is that no one is safe.  If your name isn't Rick, your number could be pulled any time.

I was really ripped up when I saw Judith's car seat.  I think that Bob is the dissector and I think he has Judith, but it is possible that Judith is gone.  It is about a TV friendly an end that an infant can get without going over a line.  It would certainly be less... less than her demise in the comic.

I'm not one that normally talks to the TV (aside from a good baseball or football game), but I found myself involuntarily telling Rick to rip the bastard's head off when he was fighting The Guv.

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Rogue Squadron 15th Anniversary

RS was the best set of SW games aside from the "Super" series for SNES.  I liked X-Wing, but I prefer a more "arcade-y" game.  I LOVED the first GC game.

The Wave 1 that sits around here is R2-D2.  I agree that Boba should have been the obvious choice to carry forward.  Someone in Hasbro thinks that people only want heroes.

???  Did you watch the game? The Bronco's defense was responsible for most of the early lead they had (fumble returned for a TD, strip sack putting them in position for a TD).  Then for around 40 or more minutes of the game until that last TD drive it was like Manning wasn't there.  Brady on the other hand had a fantastic second half.  Look at the game stats.  Brady rose to the occasion, Manning folded.  If we want to say it was a goofy play that won NE the game the obvious counter is that there would have been no OT if not for a goofy 1st quarter.

I think that last night should put to be the "who is better?" conversation to bed, but it won't.  Manning gets the respect from the league that Brady deserves.

I still get annoyed by the re-titling of Raiders.  Grr.

I think that the bad part of TWD this week was Breckin Meyer.  Dude must have connected parents because he's gotten SO many chances to bomb.  He really sucks.  Not near the Manson line, but down there.  Chris Jericho was really good.  The show is at its best when someone from production or cast is a guest.
