The two Muftak procured for me arrived yesterday!  Long story short, I love this version of the stormtrooper!  The lack of holster kind of bugs me, but it's movie accurate.  Also, the helmet seems kind of odd, the forehead is raised a bit to the point it makes a ridge at the top of the helmet.  Almost like it's supposed to be a visor.

I sent them an e-mail describing how I did not receive my sail barge....they replied stating that I never ordered one.  Details, details, details.

I got the same e-mail.  I'm assuming you already have to be going to Celebration to take advantage of that?

Possibly, they've kind of taken up the role of the Saviors since Carol wiped them out.

If The Whisperers are moving with a herd for protection, then why mark their territory (and bother to carry spray paint with them) and why initiate dangerous contact with other living people?  Why bother to chase down Eugene and Rosita?

It was the Highwaymen that were marking the signs....I missed that too at first.

And lastly to Dave again, man you and I are on such different pages on this. I think the show would be really boring without other people surviving. And if the only groups that can survive are supposed to fit into some wilderness savy, survival savy, adults, etc etc etc whatever, then that sounds boring too.

I totally agree that for the show to be interesting they need to have external conflict - zombies, wildlife, nature, new groups, etc.  Internal conflict is kind of boring - e.g. Maggie arguing with Michonne.

The part that bothers me is that we've seen some highly organized and heavily armed groups (The Saviors, Terminus, The Governor's group, etc.) get destroyed through conflict.  And any groups that wandered in to their sphere were quickly wiped out/assimilated. 

My ask is that any outside group that has managed to survive for five+ years needs to really have their act together.  Especially if its a large group - e.g. The Whisperers, Highwaymen, etc.

Ultimately I'd like to see some more creativity around the threats.  And it still bugs me that you can walk for a few hours and find a whole new group that is threatening yours that you never new existed, even though you've been there for 10 years.

Have the been there all along, or did they wander in?

My take on Jocilyn's group of wayward murderers were nomadic and they have been on the move for most of the apocalypse.  they just recently wandered into the Alexandria/Hilltop/Kingdom sphere of influence.  It's a similar situation with the Whisperers....they move with the herd and set up camps along the way.

Star Wars Anthology / D&D Trilogy to focus on The Old Republic.

Could we be getting a Revan story?

None of this is confirmed, but there's a lot of fertile ground in the KOTOR era!

Naturally, I got my six at $13 or above...


Six??  There were only two in the movie!

Pretty satisfying explanation for the scars and Michonne's paranoia.

I totally agree...especially since that all happened approximately 6 months after Rick "Died".

I've got one of the only Centurion's in the state keeping an eye on my progress. We must have spent an hour texting back-and-forth trying to determine which shin piece was correct. I think we got it right, finally, but it wasn't easy. So far, my biggest obstacle to hitting Centurion will be, I think, the placement of the outer strips on my return edges. I trimmed too much on one arm and had to compensate by giving more room on the edge. It might come down to how favorable the lighting will be and how nitpicky the staff are feeling at the time. Here lately, I've seen maybe two or three guys being told to fix stuff that isn't even part of the CRL.

I'm not even trying for Centurion, but our GML had me change things to Centurion standards.   ::)

Just an FYI, this figure has been marked down at my local Wally.  All VC figures were rolled back to $9.95.

Don't let Rob know.

Take a look at the shin pieces....make sure the inner portion is slightly longer than the outer portion. 

Otherwise, it's coming along great!

I have a little tweaking to my belt to complete and then I'll be approved in the 501st!

Can I just skip to the season finale episodes and still know what's going on?

Did anyone else notice that the commercials were kind of screwing with the episode last night?  There were definitely some scenes that got cut because of odd commercial placement.  I ended up recording a later viewing to make sure I didn't miss anything.  I saw all the major plot points though....overall a good episode.
