Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Fear the Walking Dead

Yeah, I'm excited to see more info on the beginning even if it is a little slow.  That was the best part about the WWZ novel - hearing about how they went from everyday life to zombie apocalypse.  I'm still not sure we're going to get the "cause" behind the event as RK has said many times he doesn't care to touch on that part of the story.  It's supposed to be more about what the characters do int he situations they are confronted with than revealing all of the origins and details behind it.

They couldn't start this the same way as TWD, Rick wakes up and we're in the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse.  I think it's s good thing this is going slow, the zombies creep up on you until it's too late!

Problem is that we've all seen 4 or 5 seasons of super high quality zombie stuff from this universe, so going back to square one when the bar is already set really high and then having a 90 minute episode with very little happening is pretty much destined to result in a giant Meh.

The one thing we haven't seen is how it started.  It wasn't covered in the show or the comic.  I dunno...I appreciate FTWD for what they are doing.

Honestly?  I don't know.  I'm going to play it by ear.  I'm definitely not going to deal with the crowds for the midnight madness event.  Part of that is my work schedule, and part of it is not wanting to mix it up with people who have worked themselves into a frenzy. 

I'd rather do my shopping at a more reasoned, deliberate pace, so I'll hit the stores during the afternoon.  I won't be buying everything at once.  There's likely to be plenty of stock.  And since the plan is for there to only be the same merchandise offered on Force Friday through the release of the film, I don't feel that much need to get EVERYTHING right away.

I could not see myself spending the $100+ that this Falcon is rumored to sell for.  The exclusive figures that are packed with this Falcon are kind of a kick in the shins, though.  And as playsets go, it does look interesting.  But not $135 interesting.

Teppo Ashigaru Sandtrooper Pre-Order at EE - $90 with free shipping.

Certainly a better deal than B&N.  Personally though, I'm surprised that B&N is starting to devote this much floor and shelfspace to high end collectibles.  And being able to find something like this at brick & mortar retail before you take the plunge is a welcome option.  I suspect that more people might be inclined to spend that additional $5 for a Samurai Vader simply by virture of seeing it in person, or by making a more impulsive purchase.

I have been pondering the same question as you McMetal.

I'm leaning towards starting at Toys R Us, getting in-and-out as quickly as possible and then heading over to Target after that.

So...1 week from tonight the Madness kicks off. At this point people seem to have a pretty good idea of what will be out there (exclusives aside). Curious to hear what folks are planning for that night. Solo runs? Group thing?

I'm still struggling to come up with a sensible plan for that night. TRU is the obvious first priority just because of the exclusive 6" Blue Trooper. But that's also the store that is most likely to be overcrowded because of the limited locations. I feel like if I had some reasonable level of confidence that there will be plenty of the blue troopers to go around I would prefer to start elsewhere and swing by around 2 or 3am after the hubbub dies down. I don't want to risk not getting that thing though, so it's a tough call at this point.

There's only 1 Target around here opening at midnight so that one is likely to be mobbed too I think. At least there you've got a better shot since getting to the actual toys requires a footrace through the store and I'm confident I can outrun all those fat sweaty nerds.  :D  I definitely want to get the 6" TIE Fighter there given the $25 off any purchase over $100 deal.

Walmart really seems like the best option IMO. They have lots of different stores around here and they almost all stay open 24 hours anyway. They also tend to stock around 10pm so ideally one could get there early and score those hard to find figures without the hassles of waiting in line for hours on end.

What do you guys plan on doing?

PLEASE just be a hologram voiced by the dude who voices Tarkin in Rebels...

I dunno, the CGI Arnold in Terminator Genisys was alright, but you literally see a quick shot of his face followed by a bunch of quick cuts during a fight scene. Tarkin doesn't fight, he just stands there and talks. We could hit the Uncanny Valley really quick.
