TV-9D9 / Re: Star Wars Rebels - Season 2 (Spoilers)
« Last post by Dave on February 5, 2016, 04:02 PM »
Kind of a weird (and not great) episode this week. 

In the past few months they've been dealing with episodes more focused on people other than Ezra/Kanan, and this week's was Zeb's turn.  I thought we were going to get some good character development, etc. on Zeb's history, motivations, etc. 

Things seemed to be going okay (I usually like the Hondo episodes of CW and Rebels), but then things go weirdly mystical, and then the episode just ended with them finding the long lost home of the Lasats without us even really seeing what went down.  It seems like this could have easily have been a couple of episode story arc where the rebels manage to get some allies against the empire, Zeb's character gets more development, etc. 

Just weird how abruptly everything just came to a conclusion.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 3

Most of these are in-stock this AM at Walmart.com for $12.83-13.29 each.  Act fast if you want them...

Better deal than the $16-22 they have been charging the past few days. :P


I've seen those higher prices.  It seems that Walmart.com is now trying to operate very much like Amazon, with the Walmart version of the Amazon marketplace dealer.  I noticed that Toynk.com is now one of those vendors who is selling through the Walmart site and was offering some 3.75" Black Series figures at higher prices.

Well there are a few assumptions in that.  I don't agree that Leia would easily sense Rey is her daughter.  Maybe she thought her daughter or Luke's daughter was killed like everyone else?  Vader was not able to sense Leia was his despite having a lot more time with her.  Vader is far more force sensitive than Leia too, and was in the same room while Leia was being tortured, yet he had no clue Leia was his daughter.  How would Leia, who is far less force sensitive, know that Rey is her kid from a few quick meetings?  Of course she can sense Han's death - she has spent the better part of her life with him, so I would expect her minimal force abilities to pick up on the death of her soulmate and/or the decent of her son towards the dark side in the same moment.

I'm also not sure Leia "sends" Rey to go get Skywalker.  They may have agreed on that approach, but do we ever hear that Chewie or Rey (or the Falcon) are part of Leia's Resistance group?  Whether she is related to the Skywalkers or Solos, I would want her to go find Luke because she's the only other light side force user they know of.  If Luke wanted to continue to stay hidden, he'd probably have a good chance of doing so unless the person looking could sense him in the force. Leia doesn't sound like she can do much with the force and is probably needed elsewhere, so Rey just makes the most sense, especially since she has Luke's saber, needs training, and may or may not be related.

Grabbed one dahntahn.  Kinda cold to be walking around drinking a shake, but it was tasty.

Yeah, they were popular when we were kids in places with lots of people with Irish ancestry - places where Saint Patrick's Day was big.

I still remember the commercial:

My local McD's don't serve them for whatever reason. My post from a few years ago, when I was out of town, was the first and only time I've ever had one.

Honestly I didn't even know these were a thing until this thread started.

I've heard that's kinda their thing...  run short-run things here and there, can them, something else replaces it...  I dunno.  I loved Oreo frappes and then they took them away.  I felt like they stole a bit of my soul that day.

Back tonight (I like frappes) and the order window had a sign that said, "Shake machine is down.  No shake products available".

I expected a rampaging mob.
