Rangers (only because they won the season series and I want Philly to lose)

Avs (though I'm not a Varlamov believer by any stretch - this team isn't a worst to cup winner, no way)

This really sucks.  With everything going on I haven't been able to check my team more than twice since the beginning of the season.  I see that I'm basically in the basement with no hopes of recovery.  Seriously, my Dutch coworker is in 2nd place!!!

I hate fantasy sports...

We knew bringing the Dutchman in would be risky.  But if its any consolation I'll be taking care of him soon.

Enjoy second.   :-*

I can't say they're overpriced given the company's size making them.  I just can't afford them at this point.  I WANT to afford them, and if they got the price under $100 for that walker/tank, I'd probably cave on one.  Not both, but one I think would be doable.

They're basically a transformer which is a complex toy when you break it down, so that's what makes me think the price is probably fair enough, I just think it'll hurt sales of the bigger stuff for them.

The 1/16 RC tanks I buy are complex, but they're made by Chinese companies, they're cranked out with quality issues galore (and unfinished which is huge in saving $, and something THESE toys have as a major cost I think), and so drawing comparisons I figure this is probably fair but I just can't justify it personally.   :-\

Under $100 and I'd have ordered that thing though.  It's beyond cool.  It crosses to Star Wars very well (something I feel necessary to buy something outside of Star Wars), and it looks just sooooooo badass and hyper detailed.

I think I have a man-crush on Bronn. While the big wedding dominated the episode, the brief scene of Bronn training Jaimie was my favorite part.

These figures have a slight animated vibe to them, which I like. I am leaning towards getting one of the Augurt (August + Yogurt?  :P) figures. The SOL figure struck me as rather basic and light on accessories, which made the price point hard to justify. The Augurt has more weapons and appears to have more going on sculpt-wise, so it seems like the right choice for me to try out.

I have to admit though, the statue/dio set looks great. The vehicles are still overpriced IMO.

I ordered the figure 2-pack with the statue...  The vehicles kill me as I really want the walker/tank thing, but I just can't jump on the price. :(  I want it though, and if things were different for me I'd buy it.

The last time we really saw Tommen before this week's episode was in the Season 2 episode "Blackwater".  Cersei was sitting with Tommen on the Iron Throne, getting ready to poison both herself and Tommen.  At least until Tywin marched into the throne room victorious.  Yeah, Cersei is certifiably batshit crazy.

Yeah I love the concept...  I wonder what "eras" they may look into?

Or if they'll try complimentary stuff for other toy lines at some point? 

Love their stuff, it's really high quality looking.

BTW, tell me that tail on the Medusa/Gorgon character doesn't remind you of the articulation style to the VOTC Chewie's torso?  That's still some innovative work I marvel at when I look at that Chewbacca figure.

K-Mart Scanner Techs down to $10 a set till I think the 19th but can't recall the date now.  Pretty good price on two army builders.

Nah I haven't seen her...  She's on the road one way, I'm on the road the other, so we're not crossing paths for a bit I think.  She said she'd bring them when we're both in the same spot which should be within a month or so since there's inventories going on I'll get stuck helping her with.  >:(
