I know this happened a couple weeks ago during the Rams/49ers awful MNF game, but they keep playing it on the local sports radio station and it makes me laugh each time - The guy is drunk!

Some suggested using the Triad Toys "Eva" body and head. It's suppose to look like Natalie with short hair from Mr Magorium. It even has changeable breast plates.

Just bought Ahsoka and the ERG from Walmart, I shall not divulge how. But I didn't break any Commandments. (Feigning ignorance is not on there - I checked)

Sweet figures!

I ordered two cases of the online only wave, the second case solely to get a second Royal Guard. I ended up selling the extra Ahsoka to McMetal, popped it in a bubble mailer and it apparently got crushed in transit to him. Always felt bad about that one so I'm glad he has a chance to get a MOC one (or for me to make that one up to him).

Wow, I had almost forgot about that! No worries, I got another one today.  ;D

I fully expected the possibility of getting shut down. I didn't even bother to argue, because it wasn't worth it.  I can just go back to the same store on Friday. 

I just found it annoying that they put that much new stock out without heeding the street date instructions on the cases.

I can relate!

Not so much with Rogue One product, but back in the Legacy era, I was losing my mind because two Walmart stores in my area kept putting out AT-TEs and other vehicles but would not sell them.  They kept taking them from me at the register, then the next day, they'd be back on the shelves!

I did end up getting the AT-TE and Homing Spider droid early though thanks to manager overrides as she saw this happening and understood my frustration.

I just read it was the most-viewed show Sunday night, excepting football.  Not too shabby after 28 years.

Perhaps in ANH, when C-3PO says, "Thank the Maker!" he didn't mean Anakin (though Threepio didn't know Anakin created him), he was referring to the Maker

I was watching ESB on TNT on Saturday and something caught my eye...THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

Luke Skywalker, the savior of the galaxy (until Rey came along) was the original owner of Willrow Hood's Ice Cream Maker

Putting together a timeline:

  • Luke takes Maker with him from Hoth
  • Luke is trained on its use by Yoda
  • Luke loads Maker and heads to Cloud City
  • Luke leaves Maker in his X-Wing and brings R2 into Cloud City
  • Luke starts dueling with Vader and gets his ass kicked
  • Willrow Hood (who must be Force Sensitive!!) senses the Maker in the X-Wing and "borrows" it
  • Lando evacuates the city
  • Willrow Runs
  • Willrow Heads to Jabba's Palace and takes the name Fozec
  • Luke's real agenda of infiltrating Jabba's Palace is to retake the Maker (screw Solo)
  • Willrow goes into hiding biding his time (Maybe until around Episode VIII)
  • Luke takes the Maker with him to AHCH-TO where he has been waiting for someone to take with them the secrets of the Maker
  • Rey shows up trying to give back his Saber, when really she's here to learn about the Maker

Willrow really was just a thief...huh, but now we know he was Force Sensitive and probably the son of Mace Windu (who isn't dead)

I was waiting/hoping for a "look at the rabbits, Lenny!" moment too. Dammit.

Travis - " I let Chris ride away...and I'm completely devastated"

Madison - "Yeah, we let Nick walk away too, for no reason, but I'm doing ok"  ::)

There is no way in hell those jackasses wind up at the same hotel. They were in a car driving at top speed, in a completely different direction than Travis was walking. San Diego is nowhere near Tijuana. That is just bad writing.

What, Ophelia didn't see the hotel beacon too?

I've seen a few pictures of boxes online that seem to indicate this is shipping in a box all by itself. That means it should be one of the few items you can actually search successfully on Brickseek. (49802129 is the UPC I believe)

But it still shows all of the store around here at 0. Disappointing.
