Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Walking Dead

Just watched the TWD Finale and I'd agree it was pretty telegraphed.  Can't quite put my finger on it, but the "anguish" of the characters isn't what it used to be.  I remember when Lori died - Rick's grief was gut wrenching.  But Car's loss has just kind of dragged on and Maggie's cries for Negan to die were almost silly.  I'm super tired of Rick's "Hey, just trust me" then killing or slashing people.  I haven't watched Fear yet - hopefully the new format is a fun reboot.

Wow, I should sell mine too.  Doubt I will ever look at it again.

I'm starting to see it appear in the Disney forums and unrelated tech forums I've read. The hate is brewing.

Uh, where?  I have yet to read anything remotely bad about the movie other than people didn't like what happened to their favorite heroes at the end.   ???

Saw this Friday and I'm still reeling from it.  Totally awesome movie and fully exceeded my expectations.  Seeing all the characters meet up was fun, and they still added lots of fun moments despite a much more serious edge on this movie.  Pacing was great too despite major characters and plot lines all over the place.  I did think there would be some rough spots for die hard fans in this movie and it did not disappoint, though the way it went down was very different from what I was expecting.  I don't think its a spolier to just say that this is the Empire Strikes back of this generation.  Can't wait to go see it again.

Yeah, me too. I don't know why, but I thought it was going to be a hard-cover book. I guess I was expecting a bit much.

Funny - I had the same impression.  That this was going to be more of a good read or have lots more pictures.  It kind of reminds of the same little books you can get at a car dealership to sell you on all the features of your car.  It's kind of neat, but not what I was expecting.  That said, it's a freebie and I would have bought the Khetanna without it, so can't complain too much I suppose.

Got mine in the mail today and popped it open. Pretty interesting stuff so far.  I've just skimmed it over, but the back section about the toy itself and how this came about is what I'm most interested in.  Of course, what I've read so far is just kind of a pep rally for "We heard you, we committed, Fans + Hasbro = Awesome."  I was hoping for a bit more story about how it all went down and who drove it.

FYI if you missed it - many former TRU exclusives (Vison/Scarlett Witch, Ant-Man/Stinger, Hydra Dude 2-Pack) are going back up for pre-order at on-line shops like EE, BBTS, etc today.

Nice to know they have a new home.  I found Vision & Scarlet Witch at TRU Burnsville yesterday, so the stores that are still open must still be getting a few things from the warehouse.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Sounds like a fun project Brian!  I had a pretty extensive vintage collection, but embarked on a similar path a few years back to get completed ships, figure variations, etc.  It was a blast.  I still enjoy going through the old stuff more than almost anything made since the 90's.

BARGE BACKER TRACKER: 7,091

Wasn't this barely at 3k a week ago?  I'm not surprised to see a surge, but I never imagined this thing would get past 6,000, let alone 7,000.  Incredible.

10
Old news... it's 4,808... probably less than two hours to go now.  I was thinking the surge would happen but it would cap out between 5k and 5500... now 6k to 7k seems more realistic unless it just stops when it hits 5k...

It will be hilarious if the orders immediately stop at 5,000 in the next few hours.

I'm still trying to convince myself I could one day break even just selling off all the extra swag. That makes it a lot more attractive to me knowing I could have an out if serious buyer's remorse sets in later.

$500 for the box, book, and a carded figure is a tough sell.  You will be able to get a healthy discount, not your $500 I think. 

I do think that they'll get the first 5,000 to everyone within a few months, but any orders past 5,000 will have a 2 year waiting period.  Now go buy it!

 ;D :-X ;)

They're not suppressing orders.  Can't believe we're still talking about this.  If anything, they're inflating the numbers to get to the 5k mark ahead of schedule.  I bet they'll take more than 5k orders and possibly orders beyond the cutoff as well because why not supplement some of the fake last minute orders.  Whatever they're doing, I'm glad it's going to make the milestone!

...even though I have no room for it the box will look good in a corner somewhere.

...said pretty much everyone who is buying this. 

Good to hear you're still collecting Mike!  Are you going to make a meeting one of these days too?  I will bring old GI Joe stuff to sell if you'll make a public appearance... ;)

They have to be paying some guy in India to just log orders periodically...
