I'm happy that you're happy, but I've drawn the line with the Winged Kira and the Golden Girls 4-pack.

I've paid $35 for exclusives that I can't find (glow in the dark Oogie Boogie, I'm looking at you), but I just can't justify $100 or $200 for anything ReAction.  I'll live without the Kira or Golden Girls... the value just isn't there to me, and I don't have some kind of complete collection of these anyway, I skipped several of the various lines that didn't do anything for me.

Meanwhile, ratings are down to their lowest levels since Season 2

Maybe, just MAYBE, fans are finally getting sick of these horrible filler episodes

To me I want to see them explore, or find themselves in some kind of NEW situation.  To me, Negan is just a more extreme version of the Governor, or the Terminus guys...  He's a hell of a character - but we've in a sense got two whole seasons invested in him.  That's all fine and dandy, but it's getting stale - especially when you kind of START the season at a crescendo.  I hope the finale is everything we've been patiently waiting for - and then I hope something actually new happens going forward.  I love this show, even when it's not great, but it's only going to last so long while the gang is just going from bad guy to badder guy.   


6 inch? I regret ever having started. It's nice, but it just doesn't fit into my collecting universe and in a lot of ways, I feel like we're starting collecting all over, especially with the vintage packaging coming out. I'd much rather have all that in 3.75 inch form.

The old proverb says 'no matter how far you have traveled down the wrong road, turn back.'

I started with the 6" stuff too, OT only.  Then about 35 figures in I decided I was out.  I found a buyer on Rebelscum that gave me about $20 each for them and I cashed out.  No regrets. 

All they are is bigger versions of something I've already got a massive collection of... I just couldn't see the point anymore.  It's not like I have tons of space.

Just got a text from my wife that Bill Paxton died at 61.  :(

I always forget.

Wait a second, it was Deanpaul's birthday?!

The Alien stuff was more appealing for some reason but this just got too weird for me.  *shrugs*

Probably because those were Kenner sculpts. :)

I get that it's expensive to be a small company and do low volume, and that it's my choice... It's just tough to convince myself that I should pay about $100 for 6 Street Fighter figures when $100 gets you a ton more almost anywhere else.  It is what it is, I just like to bitch about it from time to time. 

I'll end up ordering the Hellboy figures, I'll keep up with MOTU... I did pay $20 for that Creepshow figure, because it's awesome... I just have to be more selective at this kind of price.  At least with Funko you could get a good deal if you looked around, with Super 7 it seems to be $15 each regardless of what you get, where you get it, and how long you wait.

Indeed...  I'm having a really hard time with their pricing and distribution.  I'm finding that $60 plus shipping for a wave of four, 5-POA action figures is incredibly difficult to justify.  If they could get these down a little bit and distribute them more so there are options as far as where to buy them so you could maybe find a better deal, I'd be much more wiling to stick with the line.  So far I skipped Street Fighter even though I'd love to buy the, but again nearly $100 shipped for 6 minimally articulated figures seems insane.   Want to do Hellboy but have been holding off...

So the v1, red and blue one is the error that's been corrected right?  I like Thrawn enough to consider overpaying for one and want to make sure I don't overpay for the one that will be common.

Lucasfilm won't even let them make a grey "Death Squad Commander". Might think greedy Disney would loosen the reigns a bit...but no...unless it's a figure with bulky removable armor that never appeared on screen.

Hey Disney, where's my Tonnika Sisters 2 pack?!

All straight repacks?

My guess is that Neagan will get Carol and Darryl will be the one that ultimately takes out Neagan.

Rick already told Neagan that he was going to kill him, so I'd be surprised if it wasn't Rick.

It's incredibly impressive to see a rocket land like that.  I know they've been doing some sea landing trials with a drone ship, but I wonder if there are some long term concerns about the stability of the ships?

Risk mitigation like Dave is alluding too is big too at this stage, but I think a big part of the reason is also that when you can just move your barge all over the ocean, it gives you more options for WHEN to land.  Getting to the point where they can safely and reliably land them like they did here is going to make it that much more inexpensive to do though, when you don't have to operate drone ships and pay to bring them back and haul them around as much.

Disappointing.  I have a UCS Snowspeeder.

I don't have a UCS A-Wing.
