Torres gets 41 game suspension.  Can't say I'm surprised or sympathetic.  About time this goon gets a substantial punishment...

So my kid's 5th birthday was last week and I got for him Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, a couple of Flame troopers (the armor up one and one with those weird accessories), a regular Stormtrooper, the Snow Speeder and the up armor versions of Finn and Poe.

He loves all the first order figures, especially Kylo Ren (we got this large balloon of Kylo Ren from Party City and I've seen him hug it!), and for a five year old kid I think they are just fine...but I can't wait to get some better articulated figures for my collection.

Overall, I liked the show.  I wish they had done a few things differently (the soldiers in the parking garage really kind of got to me....the ones guarding the neighborhood didn't as much, mainly because I figure that is what you'd get when you put a 1Lt in charge).

FTWD definitely whetted my appetite for TWD's return next week and I'll look forward to season 2.

The TFA Teaser Trailer #2 (with the crashed star destroyer, Han Solo and all) shows before the new film, "The Martian".  Was pleasantly surprised to see it on the big screen this weekend :)

Ex-wife had a real doctor to tell her what was going on.

Yeah, they screwed over LA to save their own. Nice work! Who is worse now? The Army for planning to abandon or euthanize everyone or the protagonists for releasing a horde and getting who knows how many killed? (Madison really, really, really hates her neighbors...even ones she liked...didn't even see her look for the Asian husband next door at the base, either.)

How did tortured private get back to the army compound and past the horde in time to confront them...I like to think he was in the pick-up bed the whole time...that's the only way i can rationalize the timing. Otherwise, he takes a vehicle, is moments behind them, but it more interested in payback than assisting his fellow soldiers.

The someone got bitten but hasn't told anyone yet was OBVIOUS. Why? Because other than Salazar's daughter getting winged, the escape was too easy.

Talking Dead didn't address much of anything of relevance. the house in the distance, the infected boyfriend, what happened to detainees who go downstairs (death, but that's still an assumption),

What I would've done.
Daniel Salazar is shot by the soldiers after saying "I'd save your ammunition..." and dies. So much for glib dialogue.
Like McMetal said, Nick gets eaten behind the doors, along with Strand.
Private shoots Salazar's daughter...kills her...goodbye Salazars. (i thought he did kill her for a second)
Doctor goes with the group, takes compressed air gun with her.
Ex-wife lives.
The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Sales and Discounts

I did the same with getting the Luke/Wampa and Han/Tauntan sets from Hasbro's ebay store.  Both look really cool. 
Thanks guys and not a problem on posting a detailed product review.  That's what these forums are for :) I'm still getting used to the size of the thing, taking up about 3 square feet of my study's floor space. I may eventually hang it, but it will need to be from a secure attachment, not just an eye-hook screwed into the drywall.  The box shows the TIE is the first in what is likely going to be a series of TFA vehicles for the 6" figures, so my interest is piqued now about what else will be revealed in the coming months...  This could get really interesting!
Thanks for posting.  I really like the comparison shot with the 3 3/4" ship to see just how big it is.

I'm still really torn on this item.  I like the concept of big ships, but this seems too big to manage without hanging it from the ceiling someplace.   

I think I would have much preferred to see a Landspeeder in this scale first.

Kudos to Hasbro, but I'm still in a wait and see mode with this one.

I want to get a handful of these for my kids for Halloween.  I tried doing the bag feel thing at Target the other day, but failed in my attempt at identifying certain figures.

Does anyone know the best (cheapest) way to get certain ones out of this set?  I'm fine buying opened figures. 

I looked on eBay and the prices seemed crazy high.

Per wiki:

Around sunset and sunrise the Martian sky is pinkish-red in color, but in the vicinity of the setting sun or rising sun it is blue. This is the exact opposite of the situation on Earth. However, during the day the sky is a yellow-brown "butterscotch" color. On Mars, Rayleigh scattering is usually a very small effect. It is believed that the color of the sky is caused by the presence of 1% by volume of magnetite in the dust particles. Twilight lasts a long time after the Sun has set and before it rises, because of all the dust in Mars's atmosphere. At times, the Martian sky takes on a violet color, due to scattering of light by very small water ice particles in clouds.
