Droid Factory 2013 / Re: 2013 Droid Factory = NOT Dead in 2015?

I don't condone buying these at all or supporting the ridiculous price set by go calendar. These are obviously strictly for the most diehard completionists. The only reason I bought them is for archiving purposes and to show the distinct differences between these and the ones released by Amazon.com. It's baffling how Hasbro would redesigned/repackage and reconfigure some of these just for the online sales. It would've made a hell of a lot more sense to just released the entire wave as an Amazon exclusive.

Has anyone seen/picked up the Kwik-E-Mart set yet? Is it even out? We don't have Lego stores around here so I am SOL on this one.

I've seen it at the Mall of America LEGO store. Looks awesome but I don't have the room for it.

$230 for that case?  It's novel that these cancelled figures are seeing the light of day, but they aren't $230 novel.

True, a store in the UK is selling them for 8 each.

I need Martin and Maggie, then I'm done with Series 2.

Finished them off over lunch hour. Still need Milhouse from series 1

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread

Caught Mad Max last night... definitely the best one and visually it's one of the best I've seen. I can see it winning multiple Oscars for costume design, cinematography, sound editing, directing, editing, makeup, production design, score, screenplay. It is that strong on all levels.

Honestly Max/Tom Hardy doesn't talk a whole hell of a lot and I think Charlize Theron/Furiosa takes center stage.

The movie is nihilistic, creepy, loud and fast-paced and the story is pretty straight forward with a satisfying climax. I saw it in RealD 3D and that added quite a bit to the experience as I'm not a fan of 3D in general. There is so much thrown at the screen though that its almost a requirement to watch it in that format.

Definitely catch it in theaters as some of the scale of the battles would be diminished in a smaller format.

4.5/5

Thoughts from those that have seen it - OK for my two 8 (almost 9) year olds? 

I've seen mixed reviews on language/violence levels... especially since it starts out with a "bang".

Should be okay. There are a few swears in there; "****", "son of a bitch" and some innuendo ex: Tony teasing BW and Hulk about "hiding the zucchini". Nothing too traumatic I guess. A few nice cleavage shots of Black Widow and Scarlett Witch, too.  ;)

Has EE offered this wave yet?  I couldn't find it on their site.  Or is it sold out and removed already?

Should (re)launch on many sites on Sunday/Monday

Saw it last night as well, thought is was really well done. A bit plodding at times, but needed to break up the virtually non-stop action. Vision and Wanda/SW were the stand outs here. Surprised by the storyline focus that Hawkeye got.

Highlights:
"Veronica" - love how that was handled and how it worked as a containment system/parts store
Ultron - Spader seemed to have a great time with that role.
Humor overall was good, and the opening word in the film was "****".
Loved seeing the return of War Machine and Falcon - especially at the end at the headquarters/
Vision was very well done. I'm not sure how much of a departure from the comics they took with his origins but it seems to work here.
The twins were great with Scarlett Witch being my fav and I like this version of Quicksilver more that the DOFP version.
Effects overall were amazing

Lowlights:
Baron Von Strucker seemed to just be thrown in there
I could have done without the TWO sappy love subplots but I gave decent character dev. so I guess it's okay.

Two thumbs up, I need to see this in IMAX 3D yet as i've heard a lot of great things and you get to see The Force Awakens trailer with that presentation too. :)

Im not a member but I couldn't resist the kit either. I understand there is a fair amount of finishing to do to get it to 501st standards. Ultimately, I'm not sure I even care about that but I like having the option.
