I agree with Bill and Scockery - this was a total cop-out and then to have Gimple sitting on the couch acting all smug and saying "we now owe you a good story in six months when we come back". How about giving us a good finale a**hole?

You just made us sit through 90 minutes of driving around and road blocks and you can't even commit as to who is killed?!?!

This is a stunt, nothing more, nothing less, to get people to talk about TWD during the summer break.

And to respond to Nick's comment about watching a show I hate, I didn't hate this show until that last minute when the pulled this junk - so now I'm seriously wondering whether this show is even worth my time. I already am pretty lukewarm on FTWD so I could walk away from the franchise no problem at this point.

It's like Kirkman said during The Talking Dead - for issue 100 of the comic he had to do something big so that readers would stay and not go "I've read this for 100 issues? Time to move on..."

Well, I've watched this show loyally for six seasons and a moment I've known is coming for many years was just messed with? Time to move on...

My vote is that it's actually gonna be Morgan. Like Matt said - a different choice than the comics, will throw the comic book fans for a loop and kill off a character that a lot of fans wanted back, but lately with the whole "you don't have to kill" stuff he's been preaching, I think there are quite a few fans out there that wouldn't mind seeing him go - which would make him a semi-safe "sacrifice" by the producers.

Grabbed the May 2016 calendar when I was at the Lego Store tonight. The "May the Fourth" promotions actually are going to start on April 30th (that's the Saturday closest to the 4th). That will be the day the Assault on Hoth UCS set becomes available as well as the Stormtrooper Minifigure Polybag which you can get for free with Star Wars purchases of $50 or more.

Lastly, starting on the 30th and running through May 4th, you'll get double VIP points on all your Lego Star Wars purchases and you will get a Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie poster with every Star Wars purchase.

The Mr Freeze polybag promotion started today both in stores and online. Spend $75 and you get the polybag for free. When I stopped by the nearest Lego store to me on the way home from work tonight, I was told by the clerk that they got enough polybags to last a few days at least, but he didn't think they would last to the end of the promotion (which I think is the 14th or 15th).

Ditto - I'd like to see a break of at least a year or two, just like the break between waves 1 and 2.

Just gonna put an open "want to buy" out there for any of the following Lego...

Lego Star Wars sets from 2010 or earlier - the one set I'm most interested in acquiring is the Rogue Shadow
Lego Marvel Superhero Constraction Sets - Hulk, Iron Man & Captain America

PM if you have anything you're looking to sell.

Been back-filling my Lego DC Comics collection now (kinda had a feeling I'd do that once I bought those three BvS sets) - here's what I've gotten so far:

Superman vs Power Armor Lex
Cosmic Boy Polybag
Batman: The Penguin Face off
Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas
Black Manta Deep Sea Strike
Darkseid Invasion
Batboat Harbor Pursuit
Gotham City Cycle Chase
Batman vs. Catwoman Mighty Micro
Robin vs. Bane Mighty Micro
The Flash vs. Captain Cold Mighty Micro
Electro Suit Batman & Lego Batman Visual Dictionary

Bought and on their way:
The Joker Bumper Car Polybag
Superman: Battle of Smallville
Brainiac Attack
Batman Bat Signal
Lightning Lad (from the Target minifigure Cube)
Batzarro (from the Bizarro Justice League DVD)

I'm kicking myself that I got the Martian Manhunter Polybag a year or so ago at the Lego Store and then gave it away to a co-worker who has a son that is really into Legos, so I gotta grab that one off eBay at some point.

I'm going to hold off on getting the 1960s Batcave set for when the 1960s Mr Freeze polybag becomes available in a week or so.

And then I'll go on the steady progression of trying to grab one set a month until I'm caught up with everything from 2012 until now...  :-\

I hate it when Star Wars is a void wasteland of nothingness to get - I always find something else I'm interested in spending my money on, and lately, Lego seems like a great way to spend it....

I agree with every single word of what Justin posted. I was coming here to give the same opinions and he beat me to it.

I will add that I think if you go in expecting it to be a 5 (or less) then you will not come out disappointed, because it will exceed your low expectations.

I finally decided I was sick of trying to find another Fifth Brother to open so I grabbed one off HTS just now. Still in stock if you need it.

Happy to not obsess over this guy anymore.

I was sick and tired of not finding this way PERIOD - I grabbed all three off HTS last week, used the SPRING16 promo code and got them with free shipping and less than $6.99 each.

Very glad to be down to just the unmasked Kylo Ren wave in the 5POA BAW line...

Picked up Kanan's Speederbike which was the last set I needed from this round of releases. The only store I've found this set in is Target, there is typically one set that is a shared exclusive between Lego & Target in each release cycle, so I wonder if Kanan's speederbike is it.

I think that at this point Leia is the Jocasta Nu of the Star Wars line. Hasbro is never going to put out an action figure of an "old lady" in the mass market 5POA line, so she'll be relegated from here on out as an exclusive. I think the 3.75" Black Series is the ONLY way we'd ever get Leia in this outfit from TFA, so I'm kinda glad she got a slot. I'm definitely glad she got a slot instead of a 3.75" SA rendition of a character like General Hux.

They should've wondered why Negans people need all this food and would increase their demands.  Wisdom would say you don't destroy your food supply, so clearly they need to feed a lot of people.  This is all a bad idea and I give Hardwick credit for sorta saying "this seems like a dumb move".  He's rarely critical but was on this one.

It's definitely a bad idea, but it does establish one major difference that will help the show chart a different course from the comics.

One of the first thing that happens after we're introduced to Lucille and its first use, is that Maggie basically slugs Rick and blames him for the death.

In the show however, it was Maggie that negotiated with Gregory & the Hilltop community what the Alexandria crew will do in order to get food and supplies, so if they keep with killing the same character that they did in the comics, Maggie will only have herself to blame, not Rick - especially since Rick's plan was going great until she got her ass caught.

So yeah - definitely lots of dumb moves on our main crew's part in this episode...

I'm pretty sure those pictures Glenn found were Lucile's handiwork.

They most definitely were. My thinking is that this does have the potential to be a sign that a different character or perhaps none of them at all will be having a one-on-one date with Lucille. Fingers crossed...

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on getting all three of the Batman v. Superman sets. While I don't really have a lot of faith in the movie, I do like the Batmobile and Batwing designs. Don't really want to get "too deep" into the DC Comics sets - so I'll stick with just these for now, but that new Harley Quinn set does look nice, as does the classic 1960's Batcave set...  :-\

Picked up all three of the Marvel Mighty Micros sets (Hulk/Ultron, Cap/Red Skull, Spidey/Green Goblin) and got the new Venom Symbiote polybag from eBay.

Scored the Ghost Microfighter at the Toys R Us near my work and scored the TIE Advanced Prototype Microfighter at my local WalMart.

I have not seen the Kanan Speeder Bike set anywhere yet...
