I can't find this listed - what do you get in the Exclusive that won't be available in the general release?

152
And that's why you gotta love exclusives.  I guess I should just have the mindset that I won't get any exclusives, then be extremely grateful if I'm able to work out some kind of arrangement that doesn't involve selling my kidney or first born child to get one. 

You know, rather than just expecting to pay the usual marked up price to order a toy after decades of supporting every figure Hasbro makes. 

153
Did anyone happen to pick up a spare of these?  I had one reserved, but they gave it away before I went to go get it.  Now the closest one I can find is at a store an hour away.  Gotta love exclusives.

Also, is the figure an exclusive or just the packaging?  I'm not so worried if this guy is going to be coming out in the regular packaging later on.

That white skeleton with armor looks awesome.  I checked out the site and looks like a few new releases since I last ordered.  Not sure if I'm ready to order another big lot, but if anyone is planning to order figures in the near future and would wouldn't mind tacking on one these armored skeletons for me, I'd love to nab one.

I just ordered yesterday.  I'll see if I can cancel and add another to my order for you.

That would be awesome if it's not too much hassle.  Otherwise I'm sure I'll be ordering more eventually.  Did you get all the figures or just select ones?  I'd love a full set, but they're just too pricey to go crazy on them all (for me).

I think it's pretty close.  That second shot is just a perspective issue.  I'd be really surprised if you couldn't fit all four figures on there (though Threepio always looks awkward on the back).

156
This guy looks amazing!  I hope he (and the other exclusives) are not hard to track down...

I wrapped up Legion the other day - pretty impressed with the series.  While separate from the X-Verse, the storyline with the Shadow King felt really similar to what I read in the X-Men comics decades ago.  I like the hints about mutants and his dad without having to go all the way with it or completely re-write it.  I feel like I need to watch it again though to catch everything now that I now what was going on.

The Black Series 6" Figures / Re: 6" Black Series Rey with Speeder

I'm looking at it this way:
  • Basic Black Series are down to $10 at Walmart right now
  • Almost everything from the Black Series has gone on Clearance at some point (definitely anything more than a basic figure)
  • Love this and the Landspeeder, but will be waiting to get them in the $25-30 range
;)

Love the landspeeder, less keen on another farmboy Luke so soon after the first.  Where's my Bespin Han, Cantina Aliens, or the remaining Bounty Hunters?

Do you guys even watch the show?  You just smear a little walker blood on you and walk freely wherever you want.  And if you have to travel far, there are always rich guys with boats or helicopters or whatever you need because that's just how it is in California baby!

They'll come across Flight 462 from the shorts, which landed safely on a highway overpass.  They take off again and do a water landing in the East Coast ocean as the fuel dries up, then the oceanside people will reluctantly rescue them and everyone will join Rick's crusade on the Saviors.  Negan will make Alycia one of his wives, but she'll talk him to death and they'll move on to the next baddie(s).

Are they only a few weeks in?  It has to be more than that from the quarantine to the goofy boat trips down to the Mexican compound then the shelter with Nick and company.  Definitely still early, but I'd have thought they were at least a few months into it by now.

Dang those packages are cool looking.

I think its the exact opposite.  When you're in a crisis situation, there are a select few who can stand up and take charge.  But the vast majority of people panic, shut down, and wait for someone to come save them.  I think they've done a really good job of showing how Negan selects people that he thinks are very valuable, then gives them the good life to keep them loyal.  If you have a nice little savior apartment with working ipods and a menu of food to eat, you can probably stomach a lot of the other crap that goes on.  Remember the alternative is zombie duty and escape means zero shelter or resources on the road with zombies and other groups popping up to kill you at all times of the day.  That is assuming Negan doesn't send someone to hunt you down first.

As for Dwight, he seems to get bullied up and abused by Negan a lot more than the other guys.  I think he was willing to do just about anything because he loved his wife and wanted to keep her alive. Negan knew that and made Dwight his plaything, but should be smart enough to realize that relationship has changed.  With Dwight's wife gone, he's got nothing left to lose, so why not betray Negan and help Rick take him down?  It's not about the cut of his jib, it's about revenge.  Yeah, he could probably just pull a gun and kill Negan at some point too, but then some other prick would just take his spot.  I think he wants the whole system taken down, especially seeing how Rick's group works together.  Plus he's clearly in love with Daryl.

There's another interesting thing to note about Negan: misguided and cruel as he is, there is a level of restraint and efficiency to how he brings people in line.  Yeah, he kills people pretty brutally from time to time, but it always relates to keeping the rest of the group in line. He had Alexandria in a position to kill them all, but he didn't.  He's given Rick half a dozen chances and only with this last speech of defiance did Negan decide to finally end Rick and Carl.  Not saying he's a good guy by any means, but there might be something more there than just being a sadistic jerk dictator.

Some people on Reddit said they got theirs from the electronics desk, and that there was something insane like one per store

You mean they only got one per store or there was a limit of purchasing one per store?  I can't believe they only got one each, and I'm fine with limiting to one at first to make sure more people get them.
