Last night's episode...meh...

It felt very much like a reboot where they were trying to keep the story line going.  I know that was needed by removing Rick from the equation.  I'm not sure how I feel about the time jump for the second time this season.

I did like seeing Carol roast the former Saviors.  That was pretty cool, but why in the world would those guys still be floating around 3-4 years later?  I'd have thought they'd have been killed off or just vacated the area.

What I wish hadn't been advertised the past couple of weeks, was these are the last Rick Grimes episodes.  That to me, has killed some of the suspense.

I certainly hope he doesn't go out like a bitch, but something that is fitting for the character.  Too often in this show, we are being led to something grand and phenomenal, and then a total let down.  Honestly, I'd like to see him walk away, much like Morgan, and the door left open for a possible return...or just the question mark of what happened to him?

I'm through Season 2 of Daredevil and loved them both.  I've watched the Punisher and it's probably my favorite of the Netflix MCU stuff.  However, I'm going back to watch The Defenders before I start DD season 3. 

I probably wont' watch the other spin offs unless I just have nothing to do.  I tried watching Luke Cage and was something like four or five episodes in and was bored to tears.

I just imagine them wanting to leave door open to bring him back in some way at some point especially if they want to follow any upcoming comic story lines or specific events.

This right here.

I ended up finding what I was looking for.

I bought a semi-complete POTF2 MF that was missing the canopy, ramp, and radar.  I then found a VTC 2004 MF that was missing the gun, and glass for the gun.  I ended up buying that one as well and then transferred the missing gun and glass to the VTC one. 

I'm now debating to complete the POTF version, sell it as is, or strip the parts and then sell all of it in pieces. 

All that, but I'm stoked to start my custom paint job.

OKay, I picked up a MF for pretty cheap, but it's missing a few parts. 

I'm looking for a canopy with glass and a ramp.  I'll take a 3D printed one if somebody has one and the price is right.

I know that the classified boards don't get a lot of traffic, so I thought I'd post here.  I'm looking to do a custom repaint of a MF.  I don't want to get a good quality one because I don't want to ruin what value it might still be holding.  I'm looking for one that has gear, the landing ramp, the canopy cover, main gun with glass, and back cover...or at least all of that as possible. I'd also take a POTF2 if anyone has one.

Hit me up and let me know.

I saw the trailer yesterday and I've gotta admit I'm pretty stoked.  I loved seeing the actual Transformers of my was even better being able to actually recognize them!!  I've got high hopes for this.  I was not really a fan of the movies beyond the very first, and slightly for the third.  The rest of the series was terrible.

I can't wait to see this.

The ride issue is a bit disconcerting.  Next Thanksgiving/Christmas I was debating taking my family to DW for a week.

That one in Garland, Texas is about five minutes from where I work.  I might swing by there just to see what they have.

Holy crap!!!  How does something like that happen unless AFA was in cahoots with someone?  I can see something slipping through every now and then.  I mean, we've also seen some phenomenal fakes, but wow, that's totally unacceptable.

I did stumble across a few things after you posted yesterday, but wasn't inclined enough to read through page after page after page covering some of the mess.

What happened with that Rob?

I've gotten out of the SW buying/selling/collecting business and still have a few things I'm going to get rid of.  Does anybody still buy vintage cardbacks?  I've got a handful from my Han Solo focus.

Also, is AFA still in business?  I thought about getting a Han Solo loose figure graded that I pulled from a badly cracked bubble, but am uncertain if I'm going to get it graded.  I'm not sure if AFA is still in business being that I couldn't pull up their website.  Second, I'm not sure if the payoff will be enough to justify sending the figure in.

My daughter and I went in for one last look today with stuff 70-90% off.  There was virtually nothing left with the exception of some Oakland A's Sonny Gray McFarlane figure.  If you know baseball, Gray hasn't pitched for Oakland since the middle of last season.  There were a couple of random things here and there, but that was about it aside from shelving that was for sale.  I did manage to score some 9v batteries for $2 a package. 

But, a bittersweet time in my life closed today.  The one I visited with my daughter is the same one my mom used to take me to when I'd come to visit her.

I've said before, it's no wonder TRU is closing it's doors...old selection, no rotation of new items, over priced and no sales.  They just couldn't cut it with Walmart and Target in regards to brick and mortar, and then there was no way they could compete with Amazon online.

The Talking Dead was the giveaway for me.  The actress kept talking about the character in a present tense.

It reminded me of Glenn and the dumpster.

I gave up on that show a loooong time ago.  I can't stand Hardwick.
