Except an AT-ST can be crushed by a couple of logs....maybe the armor could help a little.  :D

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 5

I must've missed the ERG the first time around since I don't recall the 2nd helmet and shoulder pads.

Here's hoping Hasbro re-releases the figures that were hard to find during their original release.

IIRC, these were the last wave of TVC and were online only.  The sold out really quick.

TBS has been pretty good about giving us some hard to get TVC figures.  It's how I ended up getting Bastilla Shan for a reasonable price.

I actually liked the opening scene with the wedding and the manager locking everyone in the ballroom.  The family wouldn't run away and leave infected family members behind.  There was a lot of cool subtle things in that scene that I liked.  It was interesting to see later on that some of the wedding party made it out and are surviving...which alludes to their break-out of the ballroom being a catalyst for the dead overtaking the hotel.

Then we get to the Chris/Travis storyline and it all goes to hell.  Someone needs to put a bullet in Chris and probably Travis shortly after.  All I could think of when he shot the farmer was "Holy **** Morty!  You purged!"  He's a complete sociopath at this point...have him look at the flowers already!  Travis is only alive by pure dumb luck.  He was right about trying to leave the farm and not harming the fater...but he won't stand up to his son and get away from the glaringly obvious **** strom that is the frat boy zombie apocalypse gang!  None of those idiots deserve to survive at this point.

I saw the ad for the force band a couple of days ago.  I might have to pick this up!  :D

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Rebel U-Wing Fighter

I get one for the kids for sure.  I might even pick one up for my rebel hangar display in my collection room since the nerf feature is concealable.

I'll get a TBS Cassian Andor figure to pilot it.  :D

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set

Hasbro has just priced this out of reach for parents.  There's no way I'd get my soon to be six year old a $300 toy for Christmas!  The only way this could be woth $300 is if it were BMF Walker size (it isn't) and had less toy features and was more collector focuse (which it isn't).

I was looking forward to getting one of these for my son for I have to hope to God that he never sees a commercial for one!

I think they did repack Kylo in TBS line.  I saw a few on the pegs the other day when I found Han and Rey.

I will take all the Royal Guards I can find!

I never picked up General Lando, so that might be another one to grab.

Some of my favorite movies Star Gee Wilder:

Blazing Saddles
Young Frankenstein
Silver Streak
Willy Wonka

Sad to hear he's gone.

Shockingly, I found a Han Solo and Leia on the pegs at Walmart this morning!  I purchased the Han and a second Rey (to diplay with the hood on) and left the Leia.  I can see that one sitting on the pegs a bit.

The trick with increased shielding is the increased mass of the spacecraft.  Launch operations and general propulsion are intrinsically tied to the mass of the spacecraft.  A magnetic shield may be less massive than shield plating with a traditional material like lead, but could potentially interfere with onboard instrumentation. 

The plan we came up with was to have a shielded room where the astronauts could retreat to in times of increased activity.

Does protection from radiation fall under life support?

Yes, but I was going the wee need to eat and breathe route.  In my project, I was able to counter radiation with shielding...even magnetic shields would work well.

Another ther hurdle to get over for manned interplanetary flight is life support.  I covered this problem in my space habitation and life support class when I was working on my Masters degree.  There are some intriguing concepts for sustainable life support, but we are not quite there yet.

So I finally bit the bullet and purchased an Xbox one elite this week.  It took me a bit of time to transfer my profile over and it's been installing Halo 5 and the masterchief collection for the past day and a half.  It's already used 20% of the ont TB drive and it's only got those two games and Mass Effect loaded.

I will actually get some game playing time tonight, but so far I'm not overly impressed.
