It does look like a nice upgrade.  I'm looking forward to seeing other angles.

It's a shame that there's only 6 episodes next season, because it seems like there's a TON left to figure out and I'm worried that it won't have any pacing at all, that it'll just be rushed.  Hopefully that's not the case.

I heard somewhere that although there are only 6 episodes next season, they are all going to be about 2 hours each.  I hope that's true!

That would be great, but then that would be a full season and why not just make it 10 or 12 episodes instead of 6?!

I'm with you Jeff. 

While I do think the undead Dragon is pretty awesome, and levels the playing field quite a bit, I thought the storytelling in this episode was lazy, even if it was kind of exciting from an action standpoint.

Having Jon face certain death twice only to be saved in two implausible ways was lame.  I know we've talked about the timeline liberties they've been taking lately, but in the time it would take to get a raven to Daenerys and have her get back with dragons, they'd all have long since frozen to death. 

Having Jon's uncle show up after a few seasons just at that moment was equally absurd.  I'm looking forward to the drama of the meeting next episode, and I'd assume that we'd have the battle with the walkers this season, and then the real battle next, but it looks more and more like the cliffhanger is going to be that the walkers get dealt with early next season, and then the rest happens for the 4 or 5 episodes that are left.

It's a shame that there's only 6 episodes next season, because it seems like there's a TON left to figure out and I'm worried that it won't have any pacing at all, that it'll just be rushed.  Hopefully that's not the case.

They'd sell more of them, so it makes way more sense for them to sell it as interchangeable.

Other Toy Lines / Re: Funko 3.75" Action Figure Lines

There's a local comic shop chain here called Graham Cracker Comics, I wandered into their downtown location at lunch yesterday and they had 3 of them.  I bought the best of the 3, the photo above is of the worst of the 3. 

I know the promotional samples always look better than the final thing, but Funko needs a new factory.  The difference between what they show and what shows up in stores is just too much.  The figures look really bad.

Yeah but including a round radar dish is probably all they have to do to make it both versions and simultaneously kill the collectibility of the old version.  Since I'm only into OT Lego, I'm kind of hoping they don't do it and leave them as separate things, and then I wouldn't be tempted to get this.

The rumor is that this one is going to be $799.

The main question I'm going to have is whether it's OT, Han Solo Movie, Sequel Trilogy, or if it's going to be interchangeable.

Saw the first Stranger Things 3-pack today... as with the GOT figures, the photos they put out ahead of time are infinitely superior to the finished product.  I couldn't believe how bad the paint apps were on some of them...

Best line of the show: Nothing ***** you harder than time.

I thought the line was:  Nothing fooks you harder than time.

The Last Jedi / Re: TLJ 3.75" First Order Playset?

I actually think the play set looks pretty cool.  My only problem is going to be the height, I'll have to see, but I'm not convinced that this is going to fit on my shelves the way I'd like it to.

I thought it was a great episode, and I don't want to get hung up on little things... but how the hell do Jamie and Bronn fall into the water 10 feet from Daenery, a ******* dragon, and a horde of Dothraki and avoid a) drowning in that armor, and b) coming up so quickly that they're immediately captured?  Are we supposed to believe that they swam in armor far enough away that everyone assumed they were still down there?

That was incredibly weak in my mind.

Thanks Jeff, that's perfect.  I'd found them on BBTS the other day and ordered them there, but free shipping is even better than $7 or $8 for shipping, so I canceled it and ordered with your link here. :)

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One 3.75" Wave 4

Thanks Jeff.. I went ahead and pre-ordered both just in case it's something screwy like the last wave with Raddus where they only get so many and then they're gone.

I wonder if when he pops back up he'll promptly be taken prisoner...

It'll be interesting to see how that plays out as it would put Jaime (and potentially Bronn) back together with Tyrion for at least one scene.



Yeah, that was kind of my thinking, especially since Jamie now knows that Tyrion is innocent and given that he was always the one who was at least... nicer... to Tyrion.  It would make for a really interesting new dynamic.

I'm assuming Jamie will unsnap his armor and float back up, but we did just see him sink to the bottom of some small body of water wearing lots of heavy stuff.

I wonder if when he pops back up he'll promptly be taken prisoner... I doubt he can hold his breath until they're all gone.
