It's the robot ghost bartender from the Star Wars remake of The Shining

The 6" Black Series version is labeled as Princess Leia (Slave Outfit) on the packaging.  But it does seem like sentiment about Leia in this outfit has shifted.  I even remember seeing a TV news piece about how one parent was so offended to see the 6" TBS Slave Leia in a toy section at either Target or WalMart, and it had been in the stores for close to 2 years.

Yes, it seems they foolishly did use that term. Don't expect me to remember things correctly then.  :P

As for offense, parents are offended by war toys.  And they should, because war is bad, mmmmkay?  :-\

Yeah, forced conflict by putting responsibility on the irresponsible.

I was expecting the other siren operator to have been killed by the new baddies. They saved their first victim for the end.

The "bury your gays" crowd will love Aaron's new injury. Damn, like losing Eric wasn't enough.

Gabriel and former junkyard lady hook-up? That seems like they are setting one of the two up to die.

Whatever happened to Heath, anyway?

Has Squid Face or Bib Fortuna been in TVC?

Yeah, back in 1983  :P

(No for either and Squidy only appeared in Power of the Jedi line)

Wasn't there a blurb that Slave Leia would never be made again? Or was that just speculation? I suppose they can call it "Heroine Leia". Heaven help the graphic designer who misspells it 'Heroin Leia".

It was hype and never confirmed IIRC. Also, Hasbro never called her slave anything, but "Jabba's Prisoner".  The Slave Leia  term was mostly a fan phrase from what I gather. And almost no one uses "heroine" anymore. I mean DC SUPER HERO GIRLS is a clunky name, but at least there's nothing drug sounding.  ::)

Found three of the TIE fighters at a local Walmart today.  Itís great to have a proper-looking TIE after all these years.  But did anyone else notice the pilotís helmet isnít technically removable?  Mine appears to have the head piece, but it appears unpainted and glued in.  Iíll just replace it with my Lt. Oxixo figure.

That guy at that website that folks here hate noticed it.  :-X

Guess glue is cheaper than paint.

It's more watchable than I suspected it would be.

Back by the people who doomed it from what I understand

The CEO of MGA won't have anything to do with Geoffory's Toy Box.

How would they rationalize him abandoning Judith? Unless Judith dies and he loses it.

None for me. No barge, no guards.

Oh, and we know Morgan isn't making back to Virginia within a year and a half of the end of last season of FTWD.  He's still trucking!?

Though that also depends on when he left Virginia, too.

It's impressive to me, who hardly ever buys Vader figures, is they picked the one VOTC Vader I actually own.

Someone found this at Wal-Mart for around $20

You'll hit me one of these days.

I didn't realize the dead kid's mom was Brett Butler. What the heck happened to her? I guess she is 60, but has not aged gracefully...under fire.

Spoilerz

New credits! Yay?

Gas issue is addressed, but not the age/quality, just supply. Yet, during their Washington fiasco, no one was looking for gasoline in old cars.

Kids runs to save horse and is the Flash, no one can catch up to him to save him from the usual plodding walker. Expedition was a lot of effort for an old wagon.

Then half the party dies from cholera on the way back to Hilltop.

Hey, former crazy junkyard lady, when you gonna talk about them helicopters?

Maybe tell the sanctuary folks they need to find a more habitable place to live?
Is that the Russian baddie from Agents of SHIELD?

Magic Storm destroys bridges and things.  Not that storms cannot do that, but they just played that card on FTWD's 4th season. 

Gregory still hanging around Hilltop?  :P

Character we've never seen or don't remember's death become a catalyst for Maggie to stand up to Rick. Okay. Sure whatever. I'd think she's still crabby because of that two year pregnancy she had.

Supposedly new CORPS stuff has shipped including Jurassic Clash, but surprise, surprise Wal-Mart's pathetic distribution system isn't doing the line any favors.

The static posed legs and t-crotch figures are being phased out, there's a few more new style figures coming.
