That is indeed awesome looking.  What scale are those?  Also around 1/12?

Agreed on Sasha's decision to help Bob2 kill some guy who's been melted to the parking lot for a year or two now.  That was pretty bad writing IMO.  I get they're trying to tie it to Tyrese and him being the new Dale/Herschel of the group as a whole, but it was just something nobody would've done given the things they've been through and it was like watching a train come down the tracks at you.  Very bad IMO.

Darryl's bowling ball use of the zombie head was pretty creative though.

And yes, Eugene still being unconscious is funny...  I'd say Eugene is miles more worthy of being around than Father Gabriel though.  Gabriel is just pathetic.

Oh, and solid thought on him Bill.  I was thinking he seems like he has some purpose or plan.  It's a good thought that he may be tied to Dawn's group in some capacity.

I grabbed an AT-AT, Snowspeeder and TIE Advanced for my son from Santa.  These are pretty cool.  A bit bigger than the Titanium, IIRC.  They have the three I listed, as well as a Speeder Bike, and the vehicles in this gift set, one of which (Wedge's X-Wing) is exclusive to the set.  The Falcon and Star Destroyer retail for $20 each so this is a decent bargain.

I won't pay to see just a trailer, but it's neat they're letting people know where it'll be at least, if they are planning to go to a film over the holiday.  I'm not big on paying to see stuff at the theater though and don't have kids to take to cartoons and things.   :-\

Not sure if anyone else here has been looking for this, but has anyone found the Rocket Raccoon baggie set at TRU?  It is supposed to be a "free with $30 purchase" item now (or $4.99 each I think), and I've been checking our store and can't find any.  Just curious if anyone out there has had any luck finding these, or could maybe even help me out if they are plentiful in your area.

I found this at a Toys R Us on my way home from work on Friday.

There were shelf tags that indicated it was free with a $30 Lego purchase - but since I'm all caught up, I just purchased two of them outright - they rang up for $4.99 each.

If I don't end up leaving work too late this evening, I can swing by there and see if they have any left in stock. The TRU nearer to where I work hasn't gotten them in yet, so I'm hoping this week they will - so if I can't score one at the first place I found them, I might have some luck tomorrow. I'll let you know.

I'm quite content with my $35 ko MP cars personally (I love kittens though)  I don't believe any other MPs are coming to TRU until next year.

AP:

3. What is the deal with these new Disney Store diecast vehicles? From the pictures I've seen online, they look quite good, particularly Slave I. Do you know what scale these are? For only $10, I can't imagine them being very large, so I'm guessing they are somewhere between Titanium and Action Fleet size? It looks like they at least have a couple moving parts, but likely no stand included. What do you know about them?
--Greg

They're neat, but not perfect. For example the Landspeeder doesn't have an exposed nacelle like it should - but otherwise, is pretty great. The scale is inconsistent, each one is pretty small and pretty cheap - if you want a series of models that are in scale to one another, this ain't it. The vehicles are nicely sized for the price - they run circles around the Titanium Series Ultra vehicles Hasbro did a few years ago - with some being a little bigger, and some being a little smaller. All I can say is go check them out at the store - the look is there, and the deco is quite good on the few I've seen finalized up close.

Starting a thread for these...  CollectionDX has a new look at the Stormtrooper figure.

I think the flint-lock E11 is my favorite part...  he'll look great with the previously announced Darth Vader figure.
