Thanks CH.  So assuming that's right, Target's distribution issue should be more of a hiccup than a never-ending black hole of 6" wasteland. For those willing and able, it's probably worth a call to your local Store Manager or Toy Lead to let them know the in-store counts are off.  They can manually override until the problem is sorted out.  My issue that I don't have a "home" Target that I usually shop at, nor am I really looking for any current 6" figs outside of the ERG wave. 

I had a similar issue like this at Walmart with their Black Series 3.75" figs.  Ended up having to call a few times, but the Manager eventually forced them through the system.  Of course, all they got was 70ish older wave figures to gum up the pegs, but at least they weren't empty.

The guy that wrote that is a little off.  The DPCI confusion would cause higher counts and limit automatic reordering.  However, my understanding of the gray sticker is that the red shirts place these when they come across empty pegs and counts that are off.  When you see the gray sticker, that should be an indication that Target is manually reordering more of these and just waiting on delivery (however long that takes).  Can anyone else confirm?  Maybe I'm not remembering that correctly as I haven't worked there in over a decade...

Wow, these are awesome.  What kind of price are we looking at?

That looks incredible.  I'm sure Dave will want one too if we want to get a group order going. 

What is the Target inventory screw up?  I'm assuming there is something specific wrong versus their general DPCI confusion...

Picked up the Blue-Ray & DVD set for Logan at Target the other day - just $12!  Was this movie that bad?  I haven't checked it out yet...

I spotted this set on Amazon for $91.99 with Prime shipping.  Not that much of a discount, but it's worth continuing to watch.

Got a notice that the price on this is now $99.99 after surging up to $145 for a while there.  I'm still thinking we'll get a window of heavy clearance eventually, the set is growing on me a little.

I think that has to be a walker bite.  When he gets shot in the neck, he reacts and holds it.  No reaction to a shot anywhere else.  Plus that shot comes in on his left.  Unless they are surrounded by shooters on both sides, a wound on his right seems odd.  If I was shot in the neck, not sure I would voluntarily kill myself when they're under 20 minutes from help.  But Travis decides in seconds to jump out of the chopper when he asks Alicia to help him with the door.  I think he was planning to ditch if the bite got too bad during the flight, so the shot in his neck just solidified it. 

I also feel a lot better about the story if he held off dozens of undead, but was unfortunately snagged by one vs. Travis being a monster zombie killer, but dying shortly after proving himself because of a random stray bullet.

Travis better be dead.  He was shot through the neck and fell out of a helicopter that was a few hundred feet in the air!

AND he was bit, right?  Am I dreaming this?  Wish they had showed it a little better, but I took it that's why Alicia didn't try to stop him. 

Too soon.   :'(

Never even heard of this store. What kind of retailer is it?

It's actually pretty similar between the two shows.  FTWD is in Southern California, so less countryside than what we typically see in TWD.  Rick woke up in a small town just outside of Atlanta, and what we saw when he reached Atlanta is that the heavily populated areas seem to get overrun first/fast.  Zombies's aren't that tough to deal with in small numbers, but bigger populations seem to fall fast.  That's the problem with all these different camps in both shows and the comics.  If you create a defensible position to keep the walkers out, that's great, but how do you handle people that die inside the walls?  I would think between malnourishment, stress, and disease (let alone walker bites and fighting with other survivors), it wouldn't take long for someone to die, then start wiping out the population from the inside.  They touched on that a little with the flu at the prison, but I'm surprised there aren't protocols for places like Alexandrea or the Sanctuary to better prevent an outbreak from within.

I thought these first two episodes were great.  Relatively speaking for the series anyway.  I thought there was some interesting zombie action and the new camp holds some possibility.  I thought we'd have a lot of episodes with the cast trying to reconnect, so glad they condensed that down to a quick reunion.  I didn't fully understand the initial camp they were brought to - seemed like a bunch of guy's under the one brother's control, then suddenly most of them answered to the other brother.  The testing on people was a concept worth exploring, but it all felt a little unexplained to me. 

The Travis/Hill People thing was quite a surprise after he just survived the previous ordeal.  I couldn't quite see, but did he reveal a zombie bite to Alecia in addition to the gunshot wound?  Figured that was the gist of the whole thing, but I couldn't quite see it.  Much as I liked the surprise, the whole helicopter scene seemed a bit goofy to me.  They were flying pretty high up, but had bullets coming through the front windshield?  And why were people so close to the side doors anyway?  Travis is half sitting out the side door when they take off and the helicopter banks to turn...I would think that's a fairly unsafe way for someone inexperienced with a helicopter to ride along.  I think they have to explore where those shots came from...pretty silly for random people to be shooting at a chopper and it never gets resolved.  Anyone know how far along the timeline we are with this story?  For them to have gone to Mexico and back it feels like we're at least 3-4 months into the infection.

That droid is called an "Astromech Droid."

   ;D  Well played.

Man I cannot wait for this line.  Another solid addition to the cast.  Any idea how many figures are planned for the first wave?
