The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Walmart Black Friday 8-Packs
« on: November 19, 2012, 08:44 AM »
Not sure where else to post this, but am curious about the new Walmart 8-pack assortments.

Other than the Yakface report, is there any specific info out there about what the precise case assortments will be available? There appear to be several.

Also, more importantly, when should we expect to see these on display in Walmarts? I would assume by Black Friday but maybe later.

Curious what other may be hearing/seeing...thanks!

I finally saw this thing this past week at TRU's so huge they just left it sitting in the middle of the aisle. No shelf space available. I've seen it migrate around a few times but last time I checked it was still there. Curious to see if it survives Black Friday...

Wow, that's shocking...some of those are great assortments!

I may have to bite, hoping one of those has the single carded Mando as well...

Yeah, I'm not too worried about it really. The whole genesis of the idea was based on a comment over at the GH forum where one of the mods suggested buying the thing now and getting a price adjustment on BF. That seems like an even more remote possibility though. I think I'd have better odds bringing it back and saying i want to re-purchase on a different card and having them re-ring the thing up again. They'd probably just balk at adjusting the price just off the receipt.

I'm planning on being there at 9pm when they open up on Thanksgiving anyway, so we'll see.

I went ahead and picked up another one tonight, mainly because I wanted one at the half off sale on Black Friday and wasn't sure they would have any left by then. I figure there is no rule against returning it and re-buying it at the discounted price next Friday. At least this way I'm assured of having one and not having to fight the teeming masses.

What is funny about that  ???

The lawyers probably made her retract

Thanks Greg! Fingers crossed here on the paint apps too.

Thanks also for posting those Wave 3 pics...those look awesome. I wonder if they will do another comic-themed wave?

Damn, that red deco Y-Wing Bomber would have been a sweet addition to this line. Nice to see the Droid Gunships in action too. It almost looked like they were deploying SBD's.

Probably would be a good idea to install some of those brace shields on the Jedi cruisers too.

Has anyone been able to successfully liberate their minty boxes from that infernal sticky tape?

I had to give up and admit defeat, though I wonder if heating the tape up with a hair dryer might have worked.

I managed to find a fresh case of Wave 2 last week @ TRU and scored a minty Shane and Rick. So I'm all good on that wave now.

Even better, I finally won an ebay auction for the SDCC Michonne exclusive for $30, which was a great price.

Now I'm just waiting on them to release that B&W Zombie 3-pack...should be any day now.

This is now up for order on and is listed as In Stock:

I went ahead and bought came to $36.86 which was cheaper than BBTS or HTS. Free shipping too if you have a red card.

I kinda wanted to wait and pick one up off HTS when they run one of those holiday free shipping deals, but who knows if it will even be in stock then. For an extra $6, I didn't feel the need to wait.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Force lightening
« on: November 14, 2012, 08:31 AM »
A more compelling question would be why do none of the Jedi use the force lightning? Where is it written that this can only be wielded by the Sith? Did I miss that chapter of the Jedi handbook?

It always bugs me that the Sith pull these crazy Force moves out of their arse, but the good guys' attacks are always completely predictable.

I really, really want to see some Jedi start using some of the Starkiller moves, particularly the throwing lightsaber attack and the Force-bubble-explosion thing. Maybe in the next movie.

I was actually just kidding about the phones, I know where they are going with that.   ;)

But yeah, you can't swallow a leg bone. It's all about suspension of disbelief. People are always more willing to buy a "Big Lie" than a smaller one. I can rationalize dead people re-animating, but gulping down an entire rib cage? Not so much.

I agree given the overall context it's a rather absurd thing to comment on, but that's the beauty of the internet!

Another strong episode, this whole season has been terrific so far. I love the opening juxtaposition of the people in Woodbury drinking their ice tea and kicking back while everything is unravelling over at the prison.

The 3 graves would be for Lori, T-Dog and Carol, but I agree that it seems odd everyone is so willing to believe Carol is dead when there is no real evidence at all. On the other hand, WTF would she be? She's been gone awhile by now.

The scene with Michonne taking out the walkers was insanely awesome. The boot stomp in particular was frigging excellent. She really doesn't seem to try too hard to make a compelling case for leaving though. No mention (again) of the blood or bullet holes in the vehicle, all the stuff from the Governor's office, etc. Kinda hard to blame Andrea for not being convinced.

And oh yeah, Walker Arena!!! Not what I was expecting...was kind of hoping they would unchain the zombies and go for some kind of Thunderdome-esque free-for-all, but instead we just got Merle and some other dope pummeling themselves. Glad to see Andrea was appalled though, seems like the impetus she needed to get the hell out now. Nice nod to the comics on that one too.

Rick is in a pretty bad place, it's hard to watch. I gotta call BS on two things though: there is no way that walker ate ALL of Lori, sorry just not possible. Explain how he swallowed that femur please. And come on - the PHONES STILL WORK?!?!

Nice moment to end the episode on and all, but yeah, call routing would be the first thing to go and you can't generate your own internal dial tone with no power.

Finally watched Cabin in the Woods this weekend courtesy of Red Box. I thought it was really entertaining. Loved the ending. Loved all the Dollhouse alums. Two thumbs way up!
