Star Wars Resistance Figures

I haven't watched the cartoon yet. Supposedely it is made for children, hence the different type of animation and colors which may appeal to kids more - however, it is on at 10pm on Sunday. For children? Really?  I can't stay up that late myself.

Anyway, I really like the design on these and have been searching for them as forum members have posted their acquisitions for several weeks now. Managed to finally find these at Target after they had restocked. Did not find the gold stormtrooper yet (Commander Pyre) but managed to snag the rest of the crew. Really like them.

So far my favorites are Torra, Synarra and Yaeger.

NFL Conference Championships - Sunday Prognostications

This is it. The conference championships with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. No teams from wild card weekend made it to this round. It's both #1 and #2s from the AFC and NFC. Should be a fun time.

Game 1:  Patriots 28 - Chiefs 40. 

Unless you are a New England fan, no one wants to see the Patriots in the Super Bowl....again. Patrick Mahomes takes the Chiefs to the promised land.

Game 2: Rams 24 - Saints 27.

I'm rooting for  Drew Brees on this one. Rams have plenty of time and talent to get to the big game later. Drew Brees needs to finish his Hall of Fame career with another day at the Big Dance.

One final question - will McFarlane continue to make their football figures after 18 years? They've already given up the license for baseball and hockey. The NFL and Madden video game licensing that must go into these figures now has put their price over the tipping point in my opinion. $25 for all repaints of mostly players we've seen many times before (Brady and Rodgers).

Millenium Falcon Carrying Case for Solo Figures

Took out my old Millenium Falcon carrying case from the late 90s, early 2000s and used it for my Solo figure collection. Hard to fit them in. One side of each "triangle" is too tight.

Locker Toys - Zombielab Kickstarter Wave 6

It's been awhile since I updated the Zombie Lab Kickstarter series.  This is wave 4 which was part of the All-In Kickstarter. Comes with three zombies and four survivors.

Unfortunately, I broke a foot of one of the zombies while trying to get it on the stand. Well, the only good zombie is a dead zombie.
