The Sequel Trilogy / Re: The Force Awakens Trailers

Of course, just minutes after I rant about what a cluster it is, StarWars.com finally puts out a list of theaters at least...

Seems virtually impossible that Star Wars combined with Samurai couldn't be awesome.

Info says Vader is 18cm (7inch), so a little big for Hasbro 6" scale but not too out of line for a bigger guy like Vader.

I've been checking in on Twitter at various points today.  Is it just me or could the sneak preview teaser trailer announcement have been any more screwed up? 

"Hey everyone, an 88-second teaser trailer for The Force Awakens may or may not be coming to a theater chain near you!  And that theater chain may or may not be showing it this weekend at their theater closest to you! And they may or may not have figured out on which movies they'll be screening it even though it's just 4 days away!"

I shouldn't need someone to build a map/table of theater chains and locations to figure out if I can see it this weekend or not...

Separate colors molded in-sprue?  That's pretty spiffy higher-end stuff.  Neat to see it here. :)

That is indeed awesome looking.  What scale are those?  Also around 1/12?

Agreed on Sasha's decision to help Bob2 kill some guy who's been melted to the parking lot for a year or two now.  That was pretty bad writing IMO.  I get they're trying to tie it to Tyrese and him being the new Dale/Herschel of the group as a whole, but it was just something nobody would've done given the things they've been through and it was like watching a train come down the tracks at you.  Very bad IMO.

Darryl's bowling ball use of the zombie head was pretty creative though.

And yes, Eugene still being unconscious is funny...  I'd say Eugene is miles more worthy of being around than Father Gabriel though.  Gabriel is just pathetic.

Oh, and solid thought on him Bill.  I was thinking he seems like he has some purpose or plan.  It's a good thought that he may be tied to Dawn's group in some capacity.

I grabbed an AT-AT, Snowspeeder and TIE Advanced for my son from Santa.  These are pretty cool.  A bit bigger than the Titanium, IIRC.  They have the three I listed, as well as a Speeder Bike, and the vehicles in this gift set, one of which (Wedge's X-Wing) is exclusive to the set.  The Falcon and Star Destroyer retail for $20 each so this is a decent bargain.

I won't pay to see just a trailer, but it's neat they're letting people know where it'll be at least, if they are planning to go to a film over the holiday.  I'm not big on paying to see stuff at the theater though and don't have kids to take to cartoons and things.   :-\

Not sure if anyone else here has been looking for this, but has anyone found the Rocket Raccoon baggie set at TRU?  It is supposed to be a "free with $30 purchase" item now (or $4.99 each I think), and I've been checking our store and can't find any.  Just curious if anyone out there has had any luck finding these, or could maybe even help me out if they are plentiful in your area.

I found this at a Toys R Us on my way home from work on Friday.

There were shelf tags that indicated it was free with a $30 Lego purchase - but since I'm all caught up, I just purchased two of them outright - they rang up for $4.99 each.

If I don't end up leaving work too late this evening, I can swing by there and see if they have any left in stock. The TRU nearer to where I work hasn't gotten them in yet, so I'm hoping this week they will - so if I can't score one at the first place I found them, I might have some luck tomorrow. I'll let you know.
