The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Black Series Rumors

Here's Hasbro full line-up. No mention of a "Chrome Series" and no 3.75" Black Series figures:

I saw the Ashigaru Stormtrooper and Samurai Taisho Darth Vader at my local Barnes & Noble today.  The price tag was $95.95 for each of them.  Still, it's nice to see high end merch like this actually turning up at a store.

7000 per day of 320 million?  You'd only need 1 out of every 45,000 people to be a competent zombie killer.

I haven't seen the show yet, but I think you're basing that assessment as though this was a contagion.  Don't we know from TWD that everyone is already infected?  A bite accelerates the process, but any death drives the change.  If 7,000 people die every day, then that's 7,000 new zombies (minimum) across the country popping up to kill the living.  That doesn't sound easy to contain to me.  Again, haven't watched it yet, but do authorities in the new show know that brain trauma is required to kill the zombies?  I thought from TWD that it took quite a while for most people to figure that out.

I just don't see how we're going to get to pandemic chaos from where they are now (short of bad writing).  We've seen the hospitals know something's going on.  That means the CDC will be involved and investigating.  Even if they don't "understand" what's happening, they'll be able to surmise pretty quickly we have venomous zombies.  In real life, controls would lock in place.  The president or the surgeon general would be on TV within a day or two saying "You know all those zombie movies?  Looks like that's what's going on.  Decapitate your dead."  And things would never get out-of-hand.  About 7,000 people die each day in the USA.  That'd be easy enough to contain.

As it stands now, there are still too many societal structures in place for it to go all apocalyptic.  There's still working communication systems...

Maybe the zombies will drop an EMP on LA.

Yeah, I think Vader was originally supposed to come out in December of 2014 and there's still no sign of him.

Gotta tell you, after seeing the drug dealer zombie I'm picking up the handgun on principal alone.

What for...the principal character wasn't that bad, maybe a little clueless as to what's going on, at least he called a half-day.  ;)

I think they could've shaken things up more. Like the dealer NOT turning after dying...making us wonder if whatever hasn't progressed that far (to turning all the dead into undead). But that would risk revealing something about the cause, which they are adamant not to do, because blah-blah-mystery-blah-it would only disappoint-blah. Really, this show cannot reveal much besides a doomed L.A. (or who knows, maybe LA contains the problem and becomes a haven  :P )

I'm waiting for the Sphero version of BB-8.

Other than that, nothing.
I'm surprised they are still teasing BB-8 over at the Sphero web site. We all know what it is. Lets just get the video up of it and show us the $150 price tag.

Just like every other licensee, Disney has the gag order out on them.  I'm sure you will hear plenty about it at all your favorite fan sites 12:01 am on 9/4 when the floodgates open and everyone can start talking. ;)

Likewise on the slow, but truthfully that was expected so I can buy into it.  I liked how the fat internet nerd kid understood what was coming.  Good nerd nod. 

The rest of the characters?  Nope, not invested after that at all.  None I'm too worried about losing at all and the only one seemingly with enough going for them to survive is the step-dad dude, the rest should be fodder unless they show something real soon.
