    Afterlife is on the bbc iplayer if that helps (according to my tv turn on screen).

    I haven't seen frozen empire yet but I imagine you'd want to watch afterlife to at least know who the new cast members are in the new one and their relation to the old guard, although afterlife's story wrapped up in the film so i doubt any plot points would carry over, just the characters.

    I'm finishing the old show before i start on 97. That's why im not talking about it yet. Half way through season 4, got 15 episodes to go before i hit the new stuff.

    I appreciate folks using spoiler tags for the show.

    Looks like both Retro Joes, Scarlett & Duke, have successfully charged - no weird glitch like with Ripper last time!
    Now the wait for dispatch!

    I stupidly passed on the official Lego Disney Wall-e set back when it was out and always regretted it, but this should do nicely as an alternative.

    However, fuckballs on Amazon for simply plastering the shipping labels directly all over the packaging and just sending it like that. Took me effin' aaaaaages to carefully peel them off and then remove all the glue residue...

    Turtles of Grayskull Mouse Jaw is imminent via The Whole Shebang so I didn't hold out on that line indefinitely :D 

    Also got word that Evri has a parcel so assuming shenanigans don't occur that'll be my Origins Sy-Klone order from Mattel Cretins.

    It's as if Mattel hate money. I really do wonder who runs their distribution.

    Same with WWE figures. They make some of their lines exclusive to Walmart and Target which never see a release in the UK - instead they peg warm in the States.

    MOTU alone meant they had one of the best distribution networks in the world and now they seem to be happy so long as they can say they sold X amount. Doesn't even matter who bought it. The money left on the table is well into the millions when you think of just a few countries in Europe much less their own damn territory. I have no idea what is mentally wrong with that company. None. There's no discernible pattern with anything they do.

    I don't wonder who they are, I just know they're idiots :D 

    Smyths have the recent Monday Night Wars wave of Elite figures which is a store exclusive in the States, that's how I was able to get the Undertaker figure so I could use the headsculpt for the Ultimate Edition.

    Some also turn up on Amazon but it's very random.

    The recent Target Exclusive Ultimate Edition Rock was available there for less than import stores were charging and on Thursday of last week I discovered the new Fan TakeOver Rey Mysterio for £34.99 when I'd written off chances of getting it because the initial information suggested it was exclusive to the US so I ordered one to see what'd happen and it arrived the next day!

    The Elite Legends line is also exclusive to a US store but many of the recent waves have all been on Amazon.

    I'm keeping my eyes open in case others appear like that as the import stores have already sold their allocations of UE Yokozuna and the Monday Night Wars Mankind and Eddie Guerrero.
