The Vintage Collection / Re: TRU Exclusive Endor Big AT-AT

They could've used Han's AT-ST dialouge "It's over commander."  And the imperial officer bits responding, plue earlier  bunker dialouge "Freeze, you Jedi Defender." No, that's not right...what is it?  :D

DIdn't they release in other countries already? Of course that doesn't mean anything anymore. Imagine a $100+ foreign exclusive.

I don't care that much, hadn't bought one of their games since TIE FIGHTER. It's just added to a growing list of Star Wars things Disney has ended/cancelled, is the Mouse cleaning house? Will all fansites using official images/logos be shut down by Disney's god-like legal team?

Waiting for Disney to cancel the sequels and shut down Lucasfilm entirely. WE ONLY BOUGHT IT TO DESTROY IT!

Joe Defender / Re: GI Joe Convention 2013

wow, a lot of this stuff at this Con is really cool.  Too bad it costs so much and is such and exclusive.  I would buy them at retail.

That's what I said back in 2002, and since then exclusives have increased in number and gotten more expensive. I wouldn't say they killed my interest in GI JOE collecting, but they contributed to me not collecting "modern style"/Generation 3. Half or more of the figure released this year will be fan club exclusives (con or subscription).

Mixed feeling about Ebert. His reviews were more interesting that many because he was intellectual enough to really critique film but enough of a movie fan to not be too snobby. The downside is that with their t.v. show, he and Siskel reduced criticism to simple yes or no (thumbs up or down) with no middle ground.  Nowdays everyone's a critic. Me, I find it hard to recommend movies to people I know because most people have narrow tastes in what they like.

My predicitions for next season. Andrea didn't kill herself, Michonne faked it (hence the incorrect shell dropping sound from a revolver)...and she is keeping zombie Andrea hidden somewhere so when Michonne gets her hands on the Governor, she'll toss him to zombie Andrea.

Lori will return as Ghost of Apocalypse Future and give Rick vision of a cruel adult Carl who calls himself "The Warden".

The Governor, Shump and Martinez will discover the last functioning Burger King but leave disgusted when they learn it's using horse meat in the burgers.

Won't these have old style POTF style necks/heads? A phase 1 Cody might be a pain to customize unless his helmet is removable. Assuming it's phase one.

There's still a Wilrow at my local TRU. I'd thought they'd all gone. Some Bespin wing guards popped up at a Wal-Mart near me, too. I scanned them, "see associate". No thanks.

You might think that, as it was written by "Carlo Angerer".

But it's not an April Fools joke. This story originally broke a couple of months ago. Lego just now decided it was not worth the aggrevation.

Anyway, Lego was discontinuing the set after this year, as they often do. Just wonder if it become some "scarce" collector's item because of this.

Toy model of Jabba The Hutt's palace resembles a mosque, group says

So many things absurd here.

1. Based on a movie, not any real structure.

2. The Hagia Sophia mentioned as a "mosque" was built as a Byzantine Eastern Orthodox Christian basilica and remained one for 1000 years until the Turks conquered Constantinople, enslaved most of its population and desecrated someone else's house of I being culturally insensitive by mentioning actual history?

3. Jabba the Hutt isn't muslim or of any earthly faith.

4. It's a freaking  space fantasy toy.

I'm glad Allen got capped and I'm glad that woman lived, but yeah, why go back to the prison? And what about the rest of the Woodbury peeps? All they took was the elderly and infirm?

Them and the kids and that woman survivor from the massacre were Tyrese and his sister.  The rest of the able bodied adults are all dead 20 something by the guv, 8 by Merle (9 if you include Carta...carta...what's his name earlier in the season), the other two via Michonne, more when they rescued Glen and Maggie, one in the guard tower during the governor's first strike, one by a loose walker. Quite a bit.

SPOILERS (obviously)

It was okay. They played it a tad safe. The governor's villain luck holds out, folks panic instead of shooting back, I can accept that since they were shocked by his actions and not fighters. But it's a good thing his closest men are loyal even when there's no reason to be. Seriously, neither guy had any feelings for any of those people? They think a snapped Philip isn't gonna take his anger out on one of them at some point?

I's necessary to have there, but survivor woman can't drive either vehicle? It's not gubna' took the keys or shot out the tires. I suppose she had to deal with a lot of walkers around and got in the wrong vehicle. I answered my own question.  (Why didn't she pick up a gun?)

Andrea...taking on walkers with a knife...can't handle one sans knife?  She was too intent on getting her other hand free, that's where I think she blundered.

Why stay in the prison? Why no Woodbury...they were asking that on Talking one had a good answer. I'd imagine there's tons more supplies in Woodbury, and far more comforts.

There was a crank caller on Talking Dead quoting some religious stuff. Someone at IMDB suggest that this was a planned "phone bomb", a clue to next season's antagonist. There was a deleted scene from season 2 where Dale hears a religious weirdo broadcasting on the radio.

All the good guys will be captured. I think Michonne will be surrounded by the governor's men and rather than surrender, decapitate herself with her sword in a manner that can only be called "glorious gorey".

Judith will speak her first words "Let my people go!" and Woodburians will be awestruck. The governor will declare it as some sort of trick, but the people's faith will let them see the truth and they'll stone the governor to death.

Milton gives up science to start the Church of the Judith Grimes of Latter Day Saints.

Or none of that, really.
