Perhaps we should move all this to the POTF2 boards?

Sounds cool. For some reason I was thinking there was supposed to be a more "actual size" version of BB-8 coming out, but both this and the Target ones are smaller.

I agree.  I might wait on this too.

It is always infuriating when characters on TV shows fail to share pertinent information with each other that would be blurted out instantly in real life. English Teacher Guy doesn't feel like mentioning to anyone that the dead are coming back to life now? Even when his ex-wife asks him point blank what he knows? "Ive seen what it can do, and what it can't..." very cryptic and dramatic and all that but how about just sharing some details? Oy vey!

Same when no one could explain to the sister why she couldn't go sit next to her sick boyfriend... for ****'s sake, a simple "people are turning into zombies" would have sufficed.  Is this some alternate universe where the word zombie doesn't exist?

Also the protests struck me as stupid - the police brutality thing is a big issue in our real world today, but there would be 24 hour, wall to wall media coverage of people turning into monsters and not dying until they get a bullet in the brain pretty quickly, which would be the end of the protests.

I think the Government is trying to suppress any information to keep people from panicking.  There are some in the know (the cops loading their car with water) and when the protest started to turn into a riot, the Riot Cops were actually trying to keep everyone in that area because they were trying to contain the zombies.

And I'm ok with that.  We're seeing the collapse from the eyes of the characters....last night's episode was pretty damn good.  The zombie outbreak is spreading faster than they can comprehend.

That is one odd custom of an ARC-170...but it's kinda cool!

They couldn't start this the same way as TWD....in TWD, Rick wakes up and we're in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse.  I think it's s good thing this is going slow, the zombies creep up on you until it's too late!

Problem is that we've all seen 4 or 5 seasons of super high quality zombie stuff from this universe, so going back to square one when the bar is already set really high and then having a 90 minute episode with very little happening is pretty much destined to result in a giant Meh.

The one thing we haven't seen is how it started.  It wasn't covered in the show or the comic.  I dunno...I appreciate FTWD for what they are doing.

I agree with the general sentiments here as well.

The only take-away that I thought was interesting was the fact that the Boyfriend/Step-dad character (sorry, I don't remember anyone's names) showed some serious balls by going into that church by himself. Yeah, part of it was probably just "blind courage" but minimally, it could have been a drug addict on a really bad trip, violently lashing out - either way (walker or dude high on bath salts) - he still was willing to put himself into harms way for the sake of his family.

Kind of gives insight that he's a resourceful, survivor type, so that way when it comes to the end of the six weeks and he's still alive we're not left thinking "how the hell did the high school teacher survive?!?!"

And for anyone not liking the drug-addict son of the female lead - I'm pretty sure I caught a shot of him with a bite on his foot in the coming attractions, so his days are probably numbered. Would make sense, even if they wanted the show to be about a "family unit" and how they survive a zombie apocalypse, that unit could simply be the two leads, the female lead's daughter and the male lead's son from his previous marriage.

Here's a perfect example of what Scott Gimple was talking about us knowing more than the characters.  Travis went to the old church just thinking his junkie soon-to-be-stepson may have seen something, but his account is unreliable because he's an addict.  He didn't expect more than a bunch of strung out junkies zoning out after their fixes.  We know there was at least one zombie in their earlier, because we know what's coming.  They don't....and their primary source to the "there's something odd going on here" plotline is a junkie.

Now, when they see Calvin...that's the game changer.

I enjoyed it.  We needed a set-up episode, and these people have no clue what is going on yet.  It should be interesting where they go from here.

In some ways I think I would have preferred a Ep7 BMF re-do... but for what this is, I'm kinda glad they put a little effort into making up a new Falcon too. 

Yeah it's got action features and stuff, but I think it looks like a fun toy.  I know my 5yo will be all over this thing... especially the shooting nerf missile thing. :P

I'm in the same boat for this.  Hell, most of the TFA stuff I've seen so far will be in my 5 year old's room!

I'm waiting for the Sphero version of BB-8.

Other than that, nothing.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars: Rogue One

It's weird because the two dudes on the right make this feel, to me, like a goofy adventure flick instead of a Star Wars movie. I like the OT elements in the rest of the cast, even the PT elements in the background. ;)

It's like Star Wars meets 47 Ronin!

Is that a micro machine version?

They have the moulds for the BMF still...all it needs is a new dish!

I agree Jesse, 2007 levels of articulation would be great.  This 5 POA is such a step backward!  Honestly, it's unforgivable on a figure like Kylo Ren.
