Heading up to DC. Next month to see U2 at RFK Staduim for the 30th anniversary of the Jishua Tree tour. Saw them 30 years ago at RFK. Some of the original group of us are getting together and going. God - I sound old.....

Read online today about a rumored nation-wide set of the Spidey/MJ TRU exclusive pack hitting over the weekend. Decided to hit ours up and sure enough they had them. Worth taking a look if interested. A classic comics MJ has been high on my list for a long time, glad to see it finally happen. Now a Gwen Stacy maybe?

Saw a lot of the Summer 2017 LEGO Star Wars sets at TRU today. Vader's Transformation, Rathtar Escape, Tracker I, Buildable Scout Trooper w/Speeder Bike

Holy crap.  Didn't we just get a whole slew of new Lego sets just a couple of months ago?

Only 2 months ago! Being a LEGO collector is really taxing lately, with 3 waves of sets, overpriced sets, and 6 month retirements instead of the usual 2 years.

Thank heavens for Walmart having to match the Amazon sale prices.

I nabbed a Tie Striker set this weekend at Walmart on clearance for $31.  They only had one and the box was pretty beaten, but I couldn't resist at that price.

Saw it with the boys this weekend.  Not as good as the first one, but still relatively entertaining.  Agreed the movie is at its best when they're all together, so splitting them up halfway through kind of hurt the last half of the movie.

The problems with Prometheus can be summed up in two words: Damon Lindelof.

I think Prometheus lost credibility when one character was running from the rolling ship in a straight line when she could have easily avoided being crushed by turning left or right.

Haven't seen Covenant yet, but I'm one of the ten people who thought Prometheus was great.  It had a few warts, but overall I loved it.

Saw Alien Covenant last night...was probably one of only 10 people worldwide who loved Prometheus, so I had high hopes. Wasn't bad but didn't really wow me. Fassbender was excellent. I liked the "protomorphs" too, kind of reminded me of the Demogorgon. 

Looking forward to the next one to close out all the loose ends. Hopefully.
