I broke my quitting vow and bought a Tarkin that I saw at Wal Mart. First retail purchase since January. They also had Wedge, Odd Ball, and Nikto, plus a ****load of TPM guys.

When Batman was flying off with the bomb, I kinda rolled my eyes with the "hero sacrifices himself" ending. I bought into it. It sucked. Alfred crying... very moving. It was predictable, but I could respect it. Sucks to go out on a low note, but sometimes that's the best way to tell a story. And then they turn it around and reveal it was all fake. Instead of feeling elation the hero survived, I felt like "you bastards... you put me through all of that just to wimp out?" On top of that, Batman quits? To live the good life in paradise with Catwoman? No more duty to his city? (granted they did turn out to be a bunch of ungrateful, cowardly, murderous thugs...) He just abandons his life's mission? Retires? Really pissed me off.
The "Robin" reveal... not horrible... just lame. And he's going to become Robin without Batman? Guess they had to hang a sequel onto something...
It's interesting...collectively, Star Wars collectors aren't very fond of Brian's Toys (and the practice of scalping) for a variety of reasons, yet, mysteriously, Brian's Toys continues to strive....and mysteriously, people still place their orders for a figure of that old bitty, and do so with a smile.
