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.

This was posted at the 'Scum, sums it all up...

I try not to use the term filler, but...mostly filler. Cliched hero and villain meet and talk moment. Andrea realizing that she is just a psycho's doormat...which has been obvious to everyone but her.

There's the new manufactured ethical crisis for Rick, that really isn't one. Rick must be joking at the end. He can't be that stupid. He can't say "and then he'd  kill us anyway", then use "but what if" as a rationalization.  I think he switched bodies with Andrea at some point.

Obscure ANH Rebel character in 2014?

Who's wishlist was Hasbro looking at?

Dr. Evazan, Kithaba, Padawan Anakin (episode 1) and Bom Vimdin at $5 each on Amazon (Bom is $5.08)...Not very exciting.

I finally found something worthwhile at TRU, Kraken and sandstorm Leia for $5 each. Looks like they put out two deleted scene cases and that was what was left along with the TPM reships. (They restocked the figures the sale finally got rid of after months!)

Offtopic, I saw a Mattel Infinite Crisis two packs for $1! Guy Gardner vs. Black Hand (I think), those hung around forever.

Word is the Drivers and Ewoks sets have hit clearance at $11 each. A WEEK TOO LATE. SCREW YOU, K-MART!  >:(

I'm kidding. $11 is good price.

I can't forgive anyone who appeared in The Wicker Man remake, boobs or not.

Wonder what got him?  There was no sign of whatever wound up getting him...  And how'd he get gotten so seemingly easily?  Wasn't like it was some overgrown area zombies could hide.  I dunno.  Weird.

Totally. There were vehicles he could've hid in (assuming they weren't locked). Maybe he spontaneously exploded?  Maybe Morgan was right, the dead are using dead men's faces for disguises. They can imitate the living now!  :o (Show turns into some super zombie Resident Evil bullcrap!)

I wouldn't say anyone still alive is tough or badass. Some people just beat the odds. There's folks in Woodbury who aren't tough at all, just got lucky that others found them or they were in a safe spot.

Some one on Talking Dead asked if it had been a child, would they have stopped. The panel was like "oh, yeah".  Hmmm....

And that makes him even less likely to be made into figure form than before.

In a post-apocalyptic world, you just can't trust people.  You can't.  I think Rick made the right choice ignoring that hitchhiker.

Rick would be dead how many times now if it wasn't for strangers? Morgan saved him from the horrors of the new world. Glen saved him from the tank. The CDC guy let Rick and them inside (yes, he was gonna blow them up). Oscar shot Andrew instead of Rick.

Hershel saved Carl's life.

It's about circumstances. One lone guy on the road, they don't know anything about him, but the three of them...all of them are KILLERS. They know they are. After being around them 5 minutes, the backpacker's the one who'd have feared them.  And they could've merely dropped him off in town...for Morgan to shoot.  :P

I don't know... screaming at the top of your lungs is the mark of an idiot.  I can't imagine how dude survived 5 minutes much less a year.  So I can understand not picking up a random idiot

Could be that he was desperate. Like, say Rick's group has been at how many times now?

Did none of those cars in the middle of the road run, though? That's what I wondered? Why didn't he hide in a ride, at least.

You can always nit pick episodes but consider this. That walker loaded bar is only at best two blocks from where Morgan lives. Given all of the walker traps he has build he would to have cleared all local building out for materials or had at least went into a eating establishment to search for food.

I wondered that, too. He was clearing whole blocks, but not TGI-Undeadies? We could assume most of the food inside would've gone bad besides the most basic things (flour, sugar) , and restaurants don't stock much from what i hear.

Not sure how on the ball he was anyway, even before the madness. If you couldn't off your zombie wife, you could lure her into some structure and lock her inside it. That wouldn't make for a good story. "I locked in her in tool shed, Rick. MY OWN WIFE! Locked in a cheap alluminum shack!"

Great news. I was disappointed she didn't reprise her Catwoman role in The Dark Knight Rises.   :D

Seemed like Rick got a glimpse into his future there. I felt like he was talking to himself as much as Morgan for awhile there.

I almost expected Carl and Michonne to come back and find that Rick had been talking to himself the whole time.

Ultimately though, how productive was that trip? They got a few more guns, but wasted a lot of gas and ammo in the process, and still no food I would imagine. Oh, but they did pick up that sweet ass crib and the photo though, whew.

The whole thing with the hitchhiker was brutal and completely awesome.

I would've had them pick up the hitcher and then he gets shot to death by Morgan. But instead of dying due to meeting Rick, he dies by seeing Rick. Rick is now the Flying Dutchman of the apocalypse. He might have survived, not having expended energy trying to catch them. Doubt that? He'd made it this long.

Did you catch the "Erin we've headed to..." sign at the start and the zombie girl at the car window with the bracelet that said ERIN. Was she one those the hitcher's pals?

Morgan is the exterminator of the apocalypse and anything that moves is vermin. I wondered from the "_____ Turned"  writing if he hadn't encounter other survivors who died on him (it wasn't just Duane, there were other names) or what?

Michonne gets the cat, a bar of booze and she gets an ornamental cat?

Poor Carl didn't know about the storage unit in Atlanta. What happened to those two people? Or were those webisodes just mostly meaningless in the big picture?

Got 2 more AT-ST's of the 3 I saw , I left one because I had to stop myself.

Middle Earth / Re: The Hobbit - Toy Line
« on: March 2, 2013, 06:13 PM »
I finally found a  store with Hobbit stuff. I got one of everything and some extra goblins. THey didn't have the Goblin King or the Gandalf/Blol 2-pack, of course. I was just gonna get a Warg and Frodo with Gollum and maybe the goblin. Then I did the math and realized I could get everything 3 3/4" scale item for under $30, so if I liked the line I would have almost everything. If I don't, well, I doubt I won't be able to get my money back on it at some point.

Ended about how I thought it would end.  I'd have Ahsoka a little bit more pissed at the Jedi council, though. It seems we didn't get to see the whole council either, did we? Like half of it...what up with that?

Barriss said the sabers suited her, like she was turning sith, but then her motivations were the Jedi were wrong in fighting the war. She was sloppy, because Ahsoka could've testified that she contacted Barris, assume that Barriss erased all transmission records, too. But then's there's Ventress's account, whom almost nobody would believe...but there'd be enough to  get Offee accused of being an accessory at least.

But then we are left with the question of how Barriss force choked someone unseen? Did she do all that by herself?

It would've been interesting to see Luminara's heartbreak over her padawan, too.

Tarkin's hated the idea that a Jedi saved his life and was happy to see Ahsoka take the fall. It would've been intriguing if he had evidence of her innocence and destroyed it.
