I was wondering what was up. We're two episodes behind.

Really, you guys should consider doing it weekly. I love the show and hate waiting two weeks. So this past month has been even longer than normal!

Seriously, best of luck. I have no idea how hard it is to put together a podcast, but if my experience of trying to get six people in the same locality together at the one time is of any indication, all over the place must be hard. You must do a listener call in episode again sometime.

Patience? Dude, this is the internet. I sometimes wonder out loud where a God damn package is already. Then I realize it only shipped a day ago. My perception of time is way effed. Glad to hear a new ep is coming. I'm really curious to hear what you guys think of the Generations Omega Supreme. Tiny head and wrong arm remold in all. ;P

just after getting the G2 Bruticus, so unless I'm missing something, and it's already decided, what 'powers' would you give the combaticons?


so until John decides to make a version of 'Convoy' as 'Convoy', (which I would so buy ) , the best to the twincast.

with rage of the dinobots coming out what do you think the future of the cybertron series games will be. I liked the first one and the second is ok as well but honestly their not linked to prime that much -it was more of a retroactive move as there are plenty of continuity errors between the two let alone the more G1 style the games have but their bond and determined to do this so what do you see as the next step in this game series if ANY? or do you think its going to be it with the 2 and they will do something else?

What aort of continuity errors, exactly? ;)

Also, there's more to to the story than the games and cartoon. The novels are probably the biggest pieces of meat at play here. :-B

So, if there is one final episode before the holidays, are you going to do a best of 2012, and what 2013 has to offer, or are you just all going to get drunk? :HEADHURTS:

So I've lost my job, and I'm going to be on a strict budget this year,

so what do you forsee as Important and what do you forsee as 'not as important'


thanks

Sudden thought:

I subscribed for the Subscription service last July-August, this year I'm thinking of not renewing my OTFCC membership, am I still entitled to the figures I paid for????
(I don't want to ask directly in case I give them an idea not to send figures because I'm no longer a member)

Sorry to hear that,

Whatever you collect, Important is Fortress Maximus Reissue, though very very expensive, so if you only collect one transformer this year make it Fort Max

In the old days, we had one line of Transformers, which had sublines attached to it. Now we have multiple lines on the shelf at the same, at least a couple of which, like Generations and Prime, would seem to compete for the same shelf space. (Most of which has been taken up by excess Bumblebees, at least until recently.) Which business model do you suppose works better in the long run?

Not too long ago, we were teased with a reveal of Takara's Senator Ratbat, using the alternate head mold that was also teased to us back when Generations Scourge popped up. Also, MP Soundwave and friends is coming up in the near future. What I'm getting at: would you rather sacrifice an extra $5 (or more, depending on how insane you are) plus shipping and handling, or wait, cross your fingers, and wait for Hasbro to announce a stateside release of the figure?

In ep. 60, you guys touched on the boundaries of collecting. One of the topics in that was regarding redecos of the same mold, and this was my favorite part of the podcast, as it has been an issue for me for several years.

I rarely ever buy the same mold twice. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are the Classics seekers. They are important enough characters to me that I wanted the trio, and searched far and wide for a Thundercracker. Never got one for price reasons until Generations mass retail release.

I did get thrust from that line vecause he was retooled enough to be unique.

But I only have Masterpiece Thundercracker. Even though I love the original seekers, it comes down to price, space, and time, as was discussed.

But I would not want Classics Bumblebee AND Cliffjumper. Even though they are seperate characters, they are not different enough to warrant having the same mold.

Keep up the good work on the podcasts!

Do you guys think the level of shittiness in recent figures is more a result of cost cutting measures or just inexperience, with the whole shift of the top TF designers moving on to the Star Wars brand?

Hello,

I enjoy listening to your show but nothing new has happened in three weeks. Usually, it is two weeks between new shows. When is a new show going to be published? I really enjoy your show and would like to see your thoughts on all the recent news.
