Got in a pre order for each version (colorful and charcoal) of the Nintendo Switch. Figured I'd decide before then which version I want and I'll calcelmthe other.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One "Value" Vehicle Assortment
« on: January 7, 2017, 06:22 PM »
The X-Wing is Red 3. I have to say... these are AWESOME. I found them at Big Lots. The X-Wing is very sweet.

I also saw the TFA Falcon from this line at 5 Below. Worth $5 for sure, even though the... thingies on the front of the ship are too thick.

Rogue One / Re: Rogue One Imperial AT-ACT Set
« on: December 22, 2016, 11:53 AM »
It's so tricky...  I am sure that with the lackluster movement on all of last year's big ticket items (6" TIE Fighter is foremost on my mind, but the mountains of interactive Yodas everywhere are evidence too along with the entire aisle full of stuff at TRU that never seems to move) has made retailers a bit gun shy on this one.  As a bargain hunter, you have to be OK with the big one getting away sometimes.  I am waiting on this, and if it hist $50-60 I may bite.  I understand fully that it may never get there and I'm OK with that.

I have an AT-AT that I got for $25, paid $30 for the MTT.  I paid a whopping $4 for my AT-TE at Goodwill.

Of all of the BF ships, the one I'd like to have most, the Falcon, is the one I never really saw dip down, and now that they have a Nerf atrocity I wonder when we'll ever see it again.  If I had it to do again, I may have bitten at $150-200 as that now looks like a bargain.

"Value" is so subjective, so to everyone that wants one of these, I hope you can find it!

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Rogue One (SPOILERS)
« on: December 19, 2016, 03:51 PM »
LOVED it.  Vader was so badass.  They need to keep the "continuity expert" in charge of this on board.  My nitpick was the choice of actor for Vader.  Too buff in the neck.  My wife even noticed it.  BUT, HUGE props for making Vader's lenses red.

Since this is a "different" SW film, it would have been awesome to have a post-credits coda with Ewan McG (maybe in session with a spectral Qui-Gon?) realizing something has happened and giving a knowing look to the sky.

Also: when someone in the writing room suggests more of this teen love BS, fire them.

Did anybody else find that episode to be mostly craptastic?

I understand the need to build the suspense and fill in the backstory, but good lord this is getting to remind me of season 2.  No action, a lot of talking and drama, a little snippet of something here and there, and then a cliffhanger.  I hate to sit and complain, but the point has been pretty well drilled home that Negan and his guys are bad, egotistical, and rule with an iron fist.  Time to push the story forward.  It's no wonder the ratings have been falling off the past few weeks.
Here, here!  Hopefully they understand that audiences want to see  Johnny and Kobra Kais get their asses whooped at some point.  They better not think of dragging out Rick and crew eating **** into the next season. There is a finite amount that an audience will take before moving on.

I'd say that The only backward compatibility will be through Virtual Console.

You say that like it's a negative. You don't have to ever detach from the TV.

The real upside to this is that the split development of Console and Handheld will be over. All the best people will be on the same team working on, say, a new Mario.
