I would kill for a redo of the 70s Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers tv series in 3.75".

How about decently articulated superheroes -- again, 3.75" -- pulled from the shows of yesteryear? This would include the likes of The Incredible Hulk (Bill Bixby, Lou Ferrigno); Isis (Joanna Cameron);  Shazam! (John Davey); Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter, Cathy Lee Crosby); Batman (Adam West, Burt Ward); Superman (Christopher Reeve, George Reeves); Greatest American Hero (William Katt). Let's throw in Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner from their Bionic series.

And a smorgasbord of characters featured in Ray Harryhausen movies including a revisit of Clash of the Titans.

I traded Target and Walmart brick and mortar for online a while back. I'll  check out their toy aisles only if I'm at the store for some other purchase.

The shelter-in-place we're under has stopped my occassional visit to discount outlets like Ross.

What is making me pause is thinking about the amount of stuff I've accumulated. As cool as something is, how many times will I use it or appreciate it? As convenient a book or blu-ray at my fingertips are, would checking it out from the library or streaming the movie from a service make more sense?

I really thought I had the Slave I, packed away after I re-did my displays. But I don't recall a white mailer box.  ???

If I can't find what I thought I bought, I guess I will be buying the new version.

I'm a fan of gonk droids. The removable upper half makes it a worthy figure on it's own and and not an overpriced accessory. A definite buy.

added: Hmm. Totally forgot we already had the bottom half produced. I buy color variations of astromechs, so a modified upper half on this still makes it a plus in my book.
(And I'd love to see the battlebot droid from Solo and the 4-legged power droid from the movie I can't recall at the moment.)

I still can't believe Snoke didn't end up being Plagueis.

Post-viewing, I thought it would've been a nice twist if Palpatine was revealed to be Plagueis.

Dang, where am I going to get my next fix until S2 begins?

Episode 7 (reminder, it was released early this week).

Holy mother of mayhem! The best episode by far.

The Client is nothing more than Boss Hogg with a ragtag, backwoods brigade. Not everything has fallen into disrepair. Out there is Walker and his Texas Rangers. They must go through a lot of Awesome Cleaner.

We get the answer to our new favorite droid bounty hunter. Not completely buying what's essentially a consciousness. Love how we get some history for Kuiil through his heated exchange with Cara. And of course, more bite-size helpings of TINY. "He's trying to eat me."

Another Deborah Chow-directed episode. The Obi-wan series is in great hands.

Dammit Hasbro, where are my toys?

I'll be in Houston early December and expected it open by then based on articles I read earlier. Even though it's nowhere near the size of what a typical TRU was, it still would be fun to see.

I was a bit surprised that it was Gabriel that killed Dante.

I got an Edgar Allen Poe vibe at the whole fire pit scene (regardless of Dante's body being in there or not). You have the murdering Gabriel watching the flames, reflecting on what he's done, who's then joined by Rosita. She rests her head on his shoulders, signaling her approval on a job well done. (ooh, bad pun.)

It's like watching Carol, part 2.

I didn't see Talking Dead after. Any mention about them?

On sale (?) for $69.99 and the single figures for $10.99.

Loved the pay-off but felt they dedicated too much time on the PTSD and bogged down the pace in the last few episodes.

Make sure you interact with the stormtroopers. 

What's the extent of the interaction? I was at Universal Studios as a little kid when the old school Cylons roamed the park. My cousin and I approached one and he knocked our heads together, lightly, but still not cool.
