I grabbed a Malgus, DS Luke and Lando, Darth Vader and...  one other that is escaping me at this moment... on the final $499 day at TRU.

$499 is a lot per figure, but not surprising.  :D

Folks are claiming the $4.99 TRU sale is still going on, with the current buy one get one half off sale, too.

I think Continuum is decent and enjoy SyFy's Being Human for what it is (if all three characters get reset to their original conditions, I'm going to be annoyed...only one left that hasn't.) I don't watch any of the (old) Big Three's shows. Not sure why...maybe because they are cancel happy. I watched the mediocre THE CAPE and the better THE RIVER last year and both got the axe.

And two more 2-packs in the Injustice: Gods Among Us 3.75 series:

- Aquaman / Black Adam
- Superman / Nightwing

We're now up to twelve really nice 3.75" DC figures wearing costumes from a video game that I care nothing about.    :-\

The pack says "Superman vs. Nightwing". That's a short fight.

Does anybody like any of the TV shows they watch?

No. Why would people watch something they like? Ridiculous.

I bet Andrea wouldn't have bothered leaving Woodbury if she'd known Governor had a GPS locater planted on her. I mean, it's that or Philip is part bloodhound.  Sure he knew where she was headed, that much was obvious. More impressive was that he knew she'd go that old factory (which looked abandoned but was somehow filled with undead). He knew the spot where she'd approach the prison. He's just that magnificent.

On the other hand, it wouldn't be hard to figure out who took a truck in the night and left the town. He didn't even need to question Tyreese and friends/frenemies.

I was wondering why Andrea didn't double back and steal the governor's truck....assuming he left the keys in it. Sounds good on paper.

It's hard to take the walkers seriously anymore. Andrea killed a dozen in a day after running miles with a tiny knife. They barely slow the Governor down. All you need is a big windchime and a deep pit...

I think Woodbury ends being overrun by a horde lured there by a crazed Milton gone all reverse pied pipery.

Anyone not using all 10 slots will have their empty slots filled with Jar Jar Binks variations.

That sounded a tad creepy.

1. Jar Jar Binks (extended tongue)
2. Jar Jar Binks (swimming)
3. Jar Jar Binks (scared face)
4. Jar Jar Binks General of Grand Gungan Army
5. Jar Jar Binks (numb tongue/mechanic)
6. Jar Jar Binks (Boonta Eve spectator)
7. Jar Jar Binks (Mos Espa market thief)
8. Jar Jar Binks (Kaadu Rider (mount SOLD SEPERATELY)
9. Jar Jar Binks (Behind the Scenes...alternate Ahmed Best head and limbs)
10. Jar Jar Binks (Sound chip includes "How Wude" "Meesa no think so!" "Meesa called Jar Jar Binks" "Go, Ani!")
11. Jar Jar Binks (Naboo Swamp aka...just some muddy deco he probably didn't have in the film)

LAST DAY OF TRU SALE.  :( (unless the shelf tag was lying)

I missed the second and third deleted scene waves that arrived at TRU, I mean I missed the deleted scene characters. THe reships were there. Even Maul was hanging around for $5! I got Battle Droid and Naboo Royal Guard, since I never bothered to get them before (yeah, TPM wave just didn't interest me, the only character I got until now had been Dofine). I still find Naboo forces boring and of limited use and the new scale of Battle Droid is irritating, with only one per card, too (compared to the legends of past). Both are decent figures. Not sure I'd army build either one now since their discounted days are passing (?). I passed up Sidious, Maul, Voss and padawan Anakin...tempting but buying too many prequel characters sometimes burns me out on collecting.

Found a Gungan at Five Below, they put out another case finally, though someone beat me to some figures or they didn't put the whole case out. I gotta get more Gungans to guard Jabba, since I missed out on cheap Gamorreans.  :P

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Disney Buys LFL

Iger is busy readying the machinery that will crank out Star Wars-related toys and theme park attractions and whatever Disney deems as appropriate franchise exploitation. He says hes looking to expand sales of Star Wars merchandise overseas and that ABC and Lucasfilm are discussing a live-action TV series. At the same time, Iger says he doesnt want to do anything that might detract from the upcoming movies. I dont want to overcommercialize or overhype this, he says. Its my job to prevent that.

Star Wars become overcommercialized or overhyped?! Perish the thought! Disney knows what they are doing, it's not like they put Mickey Mouse on everything... ;)

As noted later on Talking Dead, why are they letting Merle near the guns?!?!

Another preventable mini-crisis..., I maintain the episode was filler. The "soldiers" outside battling walkers because, well, we have to have zombie killings.

Sex scene. Meh. Yeah, meh. They neglected their duties to do it. Yay, them. The comic is full of sex, so much so I've never seen people enjoy the destruction of their own civilization so much.  ;)

Again, the whole talk between Rick and the Governor just made Rick look like a fool based on what he said at the end.  this isn't Batman meeting the Joker. It's more like Chief O'Hara meeting the Joker.

Walking Dead filler is still better than most shows on television, though.

Bothans need to stop dying for a toy series that will never make them.  :(

A Bothan was in a comic-pack.  ???

But what are the odds of them appearing in Saga Legends? Slim.

The 411: The First Wave Of Hasbro's New Saga Collection
Beyond the figures we saw in their showroom at Toy Fair last month, early assortments of Hasbro's 2013 Saga Legends collection will also include figures based on The Clone Wars Captain Rex, The Empire Strikes Back Boba Fett, A New Hope Stormtrooper, The Empire Strikes Back Darth Vader, and The Clone Wars Darth Maul. Stay tuned for images and additional information on these new figures. Only a couple of Bothans died to bring us this information.

Bothans need to stop dying for a toy series that will never make them.  :(

Unfortunately, coming on the heels of The Clone Wars' cancellation is the news that Detours has NOT yet been cancelled.  ;)

Yeesh, makes letting Maul live seem pointless.

I'd suspect the Clovis arc was NOT shown just to get people who otherwise wouldn't (me  :P)  to buy the final season 5 DVD set.

Talk of a short Season 6 of 12 episodes.
