Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Iron Man (Movie and Sequels)

I think the preview looks rather silly, personally. 

But then again, I've never really liked Super Hero movies.  The only one that's ever been one that I can watch more than once was Batman in 1989, and maybe Captain America.

I didn't like the preview to next week though.  Not one bit.


Looked like Rick was standing at the Governor's desk, yelling at Andrea, saying something along the lines of "You told me was willing to talk!"

Why Rick would be at Woodbury at this point and willing to talk to that guy is beyond me.  Guess we'll see.  I hope this particular scenario doesn't play out like in the books.  Rick does end up there, but under very different circumstances, as he's there before the two groups go to war.  I hope what happens to Rick in the books while in Woodbury doesn't happen in the TV series.

When I was watching it, I was hoping that Rick would at least talk to the guy.  I think a lot of him not giving the guy any chance was becuase Carl was with him and he doesn't want to risk putting his kid in more danger... the parent in me tells me that I wouldn't either.  But then again, Rick's allowing his kid to be involved with some dangerous stuff (but what in that world they live in isn't dangerous?).

Anyways, good episode but a bit of a letdown with Morgan (reading the book gave me the impression things might be differnt with Morgan - which I suppose, they still could leave that open seeing how this episode ended).

Also, I wasn't bothered at all that Carl wanted the picture.  I was a bit bothered that Michonne was able to sneak in and get it so easily though... I know the zombies were distracted, but that was kind of silly. I get it though - it was done to have Carl start trusting Michonne, which is going to be very important to the series.

Found a Kmart in my area that actually had some Hobbit stuff and scored quite a few items on the cheap.  Mostly just goblins for my "army" that I really just let my son play with.

Isn't the TRU exclusive GI Joe Tomahawk supposed to retail for $39.99?  Based on that, I would think that this thing should stay under $100.00... but who knows.

The Axel death was a shocker.  He does sneak off and kill some of the women in the comics, so I'm sure the writers switched that one around to surprise the fans of the book.  He would have been too predictible as a killer from within and the group's spread pretty thin as it is until Tyreese gets back.  Speaking of which, were they too far away to hear all of the gunfire?  I wonder where they snuck off to...

Actually, that's not Axel who murders the women.  It's Thomas - Link.

I wish the Kmarts around here had these.  I've checked all three stores and see no sign of them anywhere.

That's something Star Wars can't get away with too much. Night Strike Luke Skywalker and Jungle Camo Vader seem unlikely to be approved by Lucasfilm.

Yeah, and thankfully that's the case.

All the more reason for them however to utilize good army builder molds more often and add spice it up with head variants, weathering, etc.  They used to be a lot better with that sort of thing than they have been the past couple years.

4.) There still appears to be strong demand for some kind of modular Death Star playset.  Can you tell us if anything like this is on the horizon or even under consideration? 

This is when they laugh and tell us that this is a stupid idea.  Because they have proven time and again that they know exactly what they're doing, and we need to quit asking for dioramas/playsets. 

...I'm so sick of Hasbro's ********.

Here's a Q "I was reading that Iron Man figures were going to be 6:00, and have less articulation.  Is this the way that SW is going?"

Personally, if they did this with style, like the Bespin Luke fro the recent Battle Pack, I'd be ok with it.  If they made the main line, simpler, and more cost effective, and then 20-25 Vintage style figures a year, I think that would be good.

I've read that too, but preorder cases that I've seen adds up to $10 per figure...

It won't be answered but I hope someone asks about the declining quality of plastic/paint, specifically on the first wave of 2013 Class I vehicles. The ships look like they're cheap Happy Meal toys and the paint on the figures is awful. The Yoda's eyes are painted on his cheeks... that's worse than the Indiana Jones line

I couldn't agree more. I've passed on all the new deluxes - the vehicles look awful in person.  The only one that I am remotely considering getting is the MTT set.

The Tantive IV Stormie is a really nice figure, but doesn't have an articulated waist - I think it's based on the Evolutions Sandtrooper mold, or pretty close.  I like it more than the VOTC mold.

Awesome army...

I passed on that Stormie though because I can't stand the helmet...

...that helmet is such a letdown.  I still can't believe Hasbro used it.

My favorite Stormtrooper is the one that came with the Target Special Action figure 3-pks... same as the TVC Sandtrooper essentially, but the 3-pk version seemed to have better paint jobs, much better belts, and no yellowing anywhere to speak of.  At least in my experience.  I don't know if I even have any VOTC Stormies left, I traded/sold them off... and gave some to my son.

Thanks Jesse - guess I'll need to keep my eyes open.  I haven't seen them at those retailers yet, and I hit quite a few Wal-Marts on a frequent basis.  Maybe when they do their resets soon they'll make a spot for them.
