I guess I maxed out my base.  Really?  That's it?  Stingy on the fencing, aren't we?  How can one defend his base if you can't even fortify all your things?  This is where Clash of Clans has the game beat... oh, and the ease of rearranging your base.

Football figures.  That sport is way too violent... and demeaning.  I mean, look at the ass-whooping the Bears got from the Packers.  That has to be demoralizing to any kid Bears fan.  Same might be applied to the Vikings since the Pack did the same to them.

Seriously speaking, all TV shows (cartoons and otherwise) have some sort of violence in them.  Tom and Jerry, Looney Toons are violent at times and they have been on TV for years.  Transfomers, Joes, SW all have guns, Batman movies have violence.  Game of Thrones?  You could list the seven deadly sins there and probably add another seven.  Boys toys aren't the only ones: Barbie has its issues, Bratz.  The solution isn't to ban all toys though.

I think if TRU wants to sell Breaking Bad and other collector focused toys, perhaps they need an 18+ section where only adults can go... just don't make them like the curtained room in some comic shops or cigar stores where you'd feel 'dirty' for going in there.

And I really haven't seen what Ezra's slingshot can do... It's like a tazer, I guess.  Can't have kids killing people, I guess.

I see no problem in putting up Christmas lights now, or earlier for the northern states and Canada that get hit by snow early in the year.  I wouldn't want to do it in the snow.  Now, if you are turning them on in October or early November...

I will say the scoring and planets we've seen are pretty kick all of the Williams and McQuarrie nods all over the place

This is one big plus for the show... something that draws in the adult audience that cared about SW from the beginning.  It's nice to see the McQuarrie stuff in action.  It's just a shame that its just for a kid's show. 

I hope that by the end of Season One this rag-tag team meets up with the actual Rebels and are brought into their fold.  Otherwise, the show has a misleading title.  Sure they are rebels in their own right, but it should be done without the watchers assuming there is an association with the Rebel Alliance.

1. Uncle Owen (Comic-pack repaint)
2. Tonnika Sisters
3. Aunt Beru (resculpt)
4. Bannis Keeg
5. Princess Leia (SA) (Tantive IV)
6. Death Squad Commander (Kenner Vintage Deco)
7. Modal Nodes Biths (with instrument pack-ins)
8.  Admiral Motti
9. Officer Evax
10.  Lars' Power Droid

Heck there are more here that I'd want than in the Prequels.

I'll bring it to the next MN group meeting so you guys can check it out in person...

That might be creepy having all those guys putting their hands all over your body... even if it's a toy.

I just keep thinking that Han and Leia refer to their love-life as The Force and Han had to ask 2-1B for some Viagra for his ED.  And if the movie is longer than 4 hours... he'll seek medical attention.

I keep hearing that Wave 3 is a go, according to funko's site... supposedly it comes from someone within the Funko family.  It's just that the figures haven't been revealed yet.

But it's tough to know how they will approach the line.  I mean, there are so many characters they can do, but where is the line drawn?  Rickon Stark comes from a prestigious family, yet his role is so small that does he warrant a figure?  Bran?  Well, it would make sense if he came with Hodor.

Not a surprise that AP gets off easy.

I caught up on the last two episodes and while interesting, just some odd plot things.

In "Rise of the Old Masters", they go into the cell where Luminara is and Kanan looks off to the right while talking to Ezra but doesn't notice the cryonic capsule that holds her dead body?!  Plus, I'm assuming that Luminara was a hologram before revealing that she is actually dead.  And the fight with the Inquisitor... he had the lightsaber to Kanan's neck and decides to talk instead of striking him down?  Only in the movies, I guess.  I don't really see the benefits of his double-bladed lightsaber or the spinning feature.  I think it would have been nice to see him take out some Jedi first before Kanan and Ezra meet up with him... to establish his bad-assery.  Instead, we saw this fight and, well, I wasn't impressed at all with him.

With "Breaking Ranks", does that mean Disney can go back and ret-con all the Jango voices as Stormtrooers in A New Hope ("Close the blast doors")?  I always felt that civilians were put in the ranks as Stormtroopers and maybe clones were phased out once the Jedi were gone, so this episode supports that.

Otherwise, it's fun-watching.

To add to Scott's list, I think getting some of the council would be nice: Varys, Littlefinger, and Pycelle

any word on a Wave 3? 

Actually, I heard rumor that Tywin Lannister is in the mix for wave 3... hopefully with Cersei.

As for wave 2, I'm wondering what exclusives will pop up with these figures.  I can only think of Dany with the dragons... or Dany with the eggs (though it probably be wave 1 Dany then).

I picked up the Starks and Jaime the other day.  I'll wait on the others for now.

Have these been found outside of Walgreens yet?

Yes.  I saw them at TRU a week ago (Well, just the Sandtrooper).  Of course, I've never seen the wave previous to it since we're mired in Leias, Greedos, and Hans.
