Got the Prison Gate and Tower building set for X-Mas...yay!

I'm all caught up until the next series of blind-bagged figures show up, no idea when that will be though.

McFarlane Toys is holding a fan vote - Which character from AMC's The Walking Dead do you want to see in series 9?

Yes, been a lot of grousing about that poll aroumnd the internets. When it first went up you could vote as many times as you wanted, and from day to day there would be wild swings in the first place candidate. Just rife with impropriety. They eventually took it off line and tried to clean the thing up a little, but it still seems dubious.

At any rate, I voted for Beth and it looks like she and Lori are the top vote getters. That makes sense because it would be a real long shot to get any of these characters made otherwise going forward. (T-Dog would be nice too, but not as good as Beth. Lori would just be straight up boring. Did she ever even kill a walker? Never liked the actress or her character, so this is not one I am pining for)

Oh, and they also announced a slew of new TV Series and Comic Series figures recently. Dale Horvath (at last!) was confirmed too! Also they have another flashback wave in the works with Plaid Shirt Rick, Flu Walker, and Bandanna Grave-Digging Daryl.  ;D

Man I'm so bummed T-Dog won't be winning that poll. Talk about a character deserving of a figure... if he hadn't saved Carol, the show would have ended at Terminus! ;D

The Flashback figures have me very excited, especially that Flu Walker. I would love to see more "generic" zombies made in a similar manner with retooled human bodies.

I saw the 2 new building sets at Walmart this past week, which are basically the Prison Gate and Tower set split into 2 with some exclsuive figures thrown in just to piss you off.  ::)

I also saw they re-designed the blind bags. How about a new wave instead?

Fresh off the season finale, Series 7 is out!!!  ;D

I picked up Michonne, Gareth, and the Mud Walker at Gamestop today over lunch. No sign of Carl, oddly.

Price has gone up to $14.99, ouch.

Still, great to have new figures and glad they got them out to capitalize on the finale hype.

I picked up Carl tonight thanks to the Find In Store feature on Gamestop's website. Man, if Target and TRU had inventory updates that accurate on their websites it would change my freaking life.

Toss-up between the can of pudding and the can of Cheez Whiz for Best Accessory of this wave.  ;D

Realize I am probably the only one who cares, but I found Series 2 of the Building Set figures today at Gamestop. There are 8 total in this wave, two humans (Rick and Tyreese) and a bunch of cool zombies, including Merle. Hopefully this means the slew of cool new Building Sets they showed off at Toy Fair will be arriving soon.

Really?  Does he have a hole blown through him or a bandage?  Oh Carl.
Climbed a mountain & never came back. I will not quit & I always fight back 
From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

Nice! I had heard those were hitting.

I picked up the 10" Survival Edition Daryl last week at Books A Million.

McMetal, what are the Walking Dead exclusives? Thanks

The current one is the exclusive "Deputy Rick Grimes" kitbash, and the exclusive "Flu Hero Daryl" figure should be showing up soon based on that I heard coming out of SDCC.

The black Ant Man figure was on a separate display away from the toy aisle up front, maybe the WD stuff is tucked away someplace too?
