Yeah, I'm exhausted by all the pilots too - have been for a while now. 

The thing that makes it worse for me is when they keep using that Luke body over and over - I don't like that sculpt.  The only reason I bought the TRU Rebel pack was for the Porkins.

I also agree on Needa's legs.  They are pretty bad.

I kinda hope sets like the TRU pilots expand to Rebel Troopers that way.  Non-helmeted guys need love.  Some non-helmeted Impy's would be fine too, for sure.

^ This.

TRU has had what seems like a lot of pilot sets in recent memory.  I think we need to see an expansion into more generic army builders - in the realm of ground troops. 

Rebel Forces
- Rebel Fleet Trooper (TVC, new head)
- Endor Rebel (TVC, new head)
- Mon Calamari Officer (TVC Ackbar, repaint)
- Rebel Marksman - NEW!

Imperial Forces
- Stormtrooper (Legacy Spacetrooper - Joe Johnston version)
- Death Star Trooper (TVC Imperial Navy Commander, gray paint)
- Imperial Officer (Needa sculpt, new head)
- Imperial Terror Trooper - NEW!

I've had a figure or two with the same foot before.  Also ball joints fused/melted into the regular limb.  That was the most frustrating because it happened on my Satipo figure from the Indy box set.  Still kinda pissed about that one.

I loved last night's episode too - especially the scene when Merle was trying to hotwire the car - and of course the walkers were attracted to the alarm.  Loved how that all played out.  Excellent scene.

Sad to see Merle die, but it was a great way to make the audience really appreciate the character and finally show deep down he wasn't quite the assface he had been portrayed as always.  Showed he was always a rough dude and a dick, but the situation since the "end of the world" brought out an even worse version of him... but when given a chance to redeem himself some and help others, he made a selfless decision.

Good for Merle, sad for Darryl... and next week's episode looks killer.

I find it's never a good idea to try to make scientific sense out of Zombies...

7 Scientific Reasons a Zombie Outbreak Would Fail (Quickly)  (hilarious, BTW)

I mean, brain tissue decays faster than just about anything else.  In reality, they'd have hollow skulls full of soup within a weak.

The virus preserves the brain tissue!!!   :P

I think the problem with the Naboo Guard from TVC was that it was vastly overproduced... like almost everything else from the initial launch of 2012.  If they had a normal production run things would have been a lot different for that figure... and all of TVC for that matter. 

I'm down for more obscure characters like that medal guy... beats seeing more Qui Gons on the pegs, right?

In my opinion it's a good sign if Hasbro is looking toward making a figure of this character... because that hints that Hasbro is looking at focusing back on collectors for characters we don't have yet.  It seems when they do that, they succeed a lot more than when they repack the same figure over and over and focus on the kiddy stuff. 

I don't want to see him essentially be a Rebel Honor Guard repack with a new head though - for some reason that sculpt doesn't do a lot more me.  The outfit is fine, but something about the sculpt has always seemed weird to me.  Not sure what it is that bothers me.

Anyways, an obscure ANH character like this gives me hope we'll see a few more obscure OT characters made in 2014 as well... an Imperial officer borrowing parts from the Imperial Navy Commander would be cool, a cantina alien or two (or three), one of the humans roaming around Mos Eisley, the "tall" Jawa, another Hoth Rebel or two, a couple more of Jabba's pals, etc.

I agree, very good episode and I enjoyed reading your take on it...

As for the burnt zombies, burns like that would kill a person but a zombie needs the brain to be destroyed... I'm assuming that the fire wouldn't penetrate the skulls on all of them.

Seeing them in the pit like that all melted together but still "alive" was definitely one of the nastiest things of the series for me.

I don't get all the complaining about last night's episode.  I guess the more people enjoy something, the more they have the right to nitpick though.

Anyways, I like how it's not following the book in some ways.  It keeps people like me guessing at what's going to happen next.  And last night was one of the better episodes in a while, in my opinion.  It showed how Andrea has finally come around, but getting back to her people isn't just the snap of a finger.  She's refused for too long to accept the Governor for what he really is.  And now her nightmare is about to begin.

The only real complaint that I have right now is I want Tyrese to figure things out (I assume he will - and that Milton will be the one to show him where Andrea is) -- and I'm afraid that the prison setting is going to merge into Season 4.  I'd prefer for it to end this season with them leaving the prison, but I don't see that happening with just two episodes left.  Who knows, I could be wrong.  But either way, this is by far the coolest thing on TV right now in my opinion.  Hoping for a great ending to this season.

Rick needs another confidant.

Looks like Michonne is going to start filling that void... though I'm curious as to why they haven't had Tyrese start filling that role.

I think the preview looks rather silly, personally. 

But then again, I've never really liked Super Hero movies.  The only one that's ever been one that I can watch more than once was Batman in 1989, and maybe Captain America.

I didn't like the preview to next week though.  Not one bit.


Looked like Rick was standing at the Governor's desk, yelling at Andrea, saying something along the lines of "You told me was willing to talk!"

Why Rick would be at Woodbury at this point and willing to talk to that guy is beyond me.  Guess we'll see.  I hope this particular scenario doesn't play out like in the books.  Rick does end up there, but under very different circumstances, as he's there before the two groups go to war.  I hope what happens to Rick in the books while in Woodbury doesn't happen in the TV series.

When I was watching it, I was hoping that Rick would at least talk to the guy.  I think a lot of him not giving the guy any chance was becuase Carl was with him and he doesn't want to risk putting his kid in more danger... the parent in me tells me that I wouldn't either.  But then again, Rick's allowing his kid to be involved with some dangerous stuff (but what in that world they live in isn't dangerous?).

Anyways, good episode but a bit of a letdown with Morgan (reading the book gave me the impression things might be differnt with Morgan - which I suppose, they still could leave that open seeing how this episode ended).

Also, I wasn't bothered at all that Carl wanted the picture.  I was a bit bothered that Michonne was able to sneak in and get it so easily though... I know the zombies were distracted, but that was kind of silly. I get it though - it was done to have Carl start trusting Michonne, which is going to be very important to the series.

I didn't like the preview to next week though.  Not one bit.

Found a Kmart in my area that actually had some Hobbit stuff and scored quite a few items on the cheap.  Mostly just goblins for my "army" that I really just let my son play with.

Isn't the TRU exclusive GI Joe Tomahawk supposed to retail for $39.99?  Based on that, I would think that this thing should stay under $100.00... but who knows.
