There is a Primantis right there too.  Walking distance of that Olive Garden really just up a light or two.  Any time you have free time when you come in for the show let me know! :)

Wow.  This story is horrendous, to say the least.  From reading some of the stories about the plaintiff, he and others have already successfully sued other defendents for molestation.  So this isn't just someone who's looking to do a hit job on Bryan Singer in advance of one of his movies coming out.  And evidently in Hawaii, where some of the legal action is being pursued, there was a window of opportunity to pursue a lawsuit for sexual abuse that is due to close very soon.  From what I gather the statute of limitations may have passed for any kind of prosecution.  But a judgement against Singer in civil court will without a doubt damage his reputation as a filmmaker.

I know that there have been some fanboy grumblings about Bryan Singer and his homosexuality.  Some of that has revolved around him and his casting of Brandon Routh in Superman Returns, and an overall unseemly angle.  I chalked a lot of that up to fanboys not liking the movie, being cruel and homophobic.  But THIS STORY?  It's a whole new level of creepy.  And while I had begun to warm up to the idea of this new X-Men film, now I feel like doing that would just be wrong.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

If it's going to be a relative....I hope it's a child or grandchild of a sibling of Obi-Wan's.  It would make more sense and preserve the Obi-Wan character as we know him.

Believe me, it was more fun than I expected and enough to recharge my batteries for the week so far.

We live just south of Cleveland so it's basically a straight 2 hour shot on 76 to visit Pittsburgh. You have the closest Ikea so this wasn't even our first day trip out.

And I didn't announce the intention to come because my wife was going round and round about leaving the kids 2 hours away. I was ready to cancel at any point and ready to leave at a moment's notice, so I didn't want to ditch on you or leave you hanging. As it turned out she loved it and had a great time too.

I'm the same way on food though, I was pushing for Primanti Bros but we were pretty beat afterward and settled for the Olive Garden that was right outside the convention center.  Left me with a good excuse to go back.

I don't think Obi's child would be unknown to him once he's a spirit.  If he can find Luke on Hoth or Endor it would be silly for him to not know about his kid.  Its just not a good fit for his character or the existing story.  I hope they go another direction.  30 years after ROTJ would give us plenty of time for some cool Solo and Skywalker Jedi along with a number of others from other worlds. I don't see any need to tap into Obi-Wan genes.

It doesn't hurt that Cap has a movie that was just released AND Army builders in the lineup.  The spidey line doesn't have a lot going for it, especially given the abundance of Spidey figures available over the years.  And if that's not enough, Spiderman is priced $2 higher at my Target stores than the Captain America line.

Looks like some dribs and drabs of late wave Marvel Universe figures are still making it out there.  I just found both Abomination figures last night as well as this morning at some local stores.

The Cap merchandise seems to be far more focused than the Spidey stock.  I think that's a big part of why it's sold through as well as it has.  I've been trying to find Falcon, too, but not luck so far.

I remember these at KMart right at the end when everything got blown out. I know we got some of the plush Ewoks along with some of the figures.

That is really cool Jesse, I didn't even know they existed! I like the cute/obscure angle, and they didn't seem to have too much in the vintage days.
