So I hear that during Comic-con, you can pay $75 to be chased by zombies at the Petco park across the street at night. It's called The Walking Dead Escape.

Yes, if you complete the obstacle course you get the SDCC exclusive Walking Dead 100 variant comic.

Estimated time waiting in line for this event: 4.6 hours  ::)


I LOVED the Borg-Man!!!

One of the best character actors EVER.

Top 3 roles:

Mermaid Man (Spongebob Squarepants)
Harry Booth (The Black Hole)
Jonathan Corbis (The Devil's Rain)

So much awesomeness last night...very disappointed we are so far off from the Season 3 premiere.

I sort of dazed in and out of the Talking Dead show last night. That Drew Carey idiot practically ruined the whole thing. Always good to hear Bob and Gale Ann dish though.

Some stuff I was able to glean:

Merle is coming back!!!
Life size Michonne statue @ SDCC! Have your picture taken as Pet #2!
Haven't forgotten about the helicopter or the dude and his son from Season One.

Blanking on the rest...

There are two at a local K-Mart near me which just announced it is closing. I went and checked and both still scanned at full price...utter fail.

Went to a comic convention in town today and the guy with the cool SW booth was back again. I noticed he had a Ponds and original Fox carded for sale and out of curiosity I asked how much. I believe he was asking $60 for Ponds and $80 for Fox...unbelievable. He also had a Revan and Malek or whatever but I didn't even want to ask how much those would have been.

Cool, I could use a cheaper Geo set so I can return the one I bought on sale recently. Will look for those today.

Last night I picked up the MH Light-Up Vader for another local collector...first one I have seen on the pegs.

I love that Walmart can throw another fresh case of MH on the pegs when there are already about 50 of them out there, but the same 6-7 vintage figures have been swinging from the pegs for months and they can't refresh them to save their lives.  ::)

Hmm, I'm more curious what ELSE is in that case assortment with the Yavin sled. Geonosian Flitknot Speeder? Y-Wing Scout Bomber? There are some exciting possibilities...

I picked these up tonight from my local Target (087-06-1172) for $14.99 each a steal considering the price point per basic carded figure (that is if you need all three figures from each set :P )

Jedi Mind Trick or were they actually on the shelves? Was there a tag confirming the price or do we think this is a pricing error?

Wasn't sure if there was a dedicated Hanna Barbera thread, but EE has a pre-listing up for a sweet 3&3/4" Zandor from the Herculoids coming in the Fall. Far superior to the pack-in figure with the boxed set with Zok.

So, I saw the trailer last weekend finally, and was sorely disappointed.

I don't know if there are multiple, different trailers floating around out there, but the one I saw sucked out loud. All they showed was a bunch of hobbits and dwarves capering around like idiots. Is the film G rated?

The only thing even remotely sinister looking was the final shot with Gollum, but everyone already knows about him, so very underwhelming.

Where were the orcs, goblins, and fing Smaug?!?!

(Ok, I get Smaug is probably being held back for the 2nd movie, but there has to be some kind of villain for the first part, right?)

Well, Hasbro DOES tend to learn from its own mistakes...

Oh wait, no they don't.


Collector's Tips / Re: Tiered Shelving (The Spice Rack Thread)

Great post, I am going to look for these today...thanks!

Not a purchase, but a sighting: both new tvc battle packs (naboo/bespin) @ Target today. They had 2 of each, but all were in pretty banged up packages. Will be curious to see how quickly these sell through...

Another local collector found the Tarkin/Starkiller wave at Walmart across town today...he texted me earlier. That is one stunning score, things have been really bleak lately as far as the prospects for new figures here. Hope to see more of these around town soon...

1 of 3 things will happen I predict:

1) hasbro will have "plants" in the audience who will lob them easy softball questions

2) at the last minute they will announce they are not taking questions at all

3) for some bizarre inexplicable reason, none of the people who show up and stand in line to get into this thing will have had any problems getting new figures this year, so the torches and pitchforks never come out.

We need a Denis Leary/Lewis Black type of SW fan who will stand up and speak with righteous anger, but intelligently. I really hope this is the year.
