Yeah, probably just packaging things, but hey you never know.

There are certain iconic things they're going to definitely want to carry around, film to film, and cash in on.

Darth Vader EpVII Lightsaber. Interesting.

There's also a listing for a Yoda lightsaber. All things considered, I'm not reading too much into these relatively vague product listings.

Check your Target stores.

I saw these at the Andover, MN store.

I had a similar thought on Rick/Pete fight but it seems like he was losing at times, and I can't see him letting it get that close is all.  He should've just beat Pete solidly, IMO.  They could've shown him struggle to not kill him a number of ways.  Have Pete come at rick with a shard of the window even?  Make him out to be even more or a dillhole.  I just hated him having any real one on one advantage.  Drives me batty.  Guy beat Shane!  And that was a long time ago when Rick wasn't as hardened.

I'm curious how the finale will set up next season.  It's gonna be interesting for sure.  I figured they'd have established the new threat more by now honestly.

Walking up on a camp of unknown people at night would be dangerous.  Aaron waited until morning to contact Rick's group.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I'm really liking the Alexandria storyline.  These people had stockpiles of supplies and wouldn't have had trouble getting more with most of the population initially cleared out.  They got a wall up with little opposition and are absolutely clueless about how to survive in the new world.  Given those circumstances, of course they are mostly made up of worthless idiots.  Deanna recognizes that they need to change and grow - I just think she's overwhelmed with grief over her son.  She hasn't experienced loss as much as most people.

On the flip side, I think Rick and others are wildly confused about what's right and wrong in this new world.  I think a lot of you are disregarding the long term mental impact of surviving a zombie apocalypse.  It would have to be shocking surviving on the road for so long, then showing up in a gated community with all the riches of normal life.  Look at how Michonne felt like she was coming out of a daze this episode.  They're stuck between this fantasy of safety versus knowing the dangers (human and zombie) that are right outside and maybe even within Alexandria's walls. 

Rick has opposition for leadership for pretty much the first time since Shane.  He talks big about taking what they want, but I think that heavily conflicts with his sense of humanity and right vs. wrong.  I thought the domestic struggle was fascinating.  I saw it less as Rick vs. Pete and more about Human Rick vs. Animal Rick.  He could have just shot Pete if he could bring himself to do that, but instead he's grappling with what to do about this guy and further conflicted because he's drawn to Jesse.  He's holding back.  Is he doing this for her benefit or for his and what's really the best thing for the group if this is their only doctor?  That's totally Rick fighting with himself, not Pete kicking his ass.

I think Nicholas spotted Rick hiding the gun initially, which makes sense if he's one of the group's runners.  He snatched and hid it for an emergency.  I hope he never gets the chance to use it.  I loved the voting on the talking dead where people said the most interesting thing to throw at a zombie would be Nicholas. 

I do think the blatant waste of ammo is annoying.  It was great when Rick's group stood by the overpass and just dodged walkers to get rid of them.  But the Alexandria people are living a life of excess, so not surprised to find it's fairly easy to acquire and waste bullets at will.  Also getting tired of Sasha - she is filling a critical role as sniper, but the rampage is getting tiresome.

I suspect the people of Alexandria know what's going on with the W - they just haven't said anything about it yet.  This wasn't in the comics that I recall, but I think it's leading up to a new baddie for the group to tangle with, which should be great.  Can't wait to see what the premise is for zombie torsos.  The most interesting part is that the girl tied to the tree just recently turned.  So if she's not from Alexandria, then there must be other survivors nearby. 

I really like the Daryl and Aaron pairing.  Agree that they are the best part of the show right now.  I don't understand why they didn't go after the campfire or whatever it was they saw though.  Their job is to find new people and it sure seemed like they had time to get to the camp or whatever that was.  Even if they got there late, isn't Daryl some kind of master tracker?  Whoever that was is clearly tied to the whole W mystery.

Bring on the finale!

Perhaps the show is on "Unlimited Ammo" mode?
I'd say that's the case since it seemed like Michonne fired 7000 shots from that pistol. I don't really care about this kind of thing normally, but everything else is presented as so realistic, the lack of concern about using bullets drives  me nuts.

Thanks Nicklab!

I agree, as Nicklab himself said, this is unlikely to be comprehensive and we sort of already know Mission Series is continuing. I was worried we'd see a price hike on the 5 POA stuff and this seems to indicate we'll see it. Unless we're seeing a bump in articulation in this line - which maybe - I'd think it's really in Hasbro's best interest to keep the line as affordable as possible. It's working for them, after all. Anyways, all speculation for now. Everything seems very big and movie launch-ish. It will be a great fall and winter I'm sure.
