Hearing Mike's thoughts on the 3rd party Devastators makes me never want to hear his opinion on collecting ever again. He projects so much wish-list fanboy expectation bullshit that it hurts to listen to him.
Bob... Thanks for wasting my time hearing you be a little **** who isn't going to buy either set. Great info bro.
Unfortunately, when we talk about things to be released
it is a bunch of subjective sharing. I think everybody has wants and desires for what will happen with certain toys when they are released. When it's a 3rd party company who caters only to fans, I am sure they are trying to get every trick in there that will make somebody want them. So for Mike to make a list of what he wants to see in a perfect version, well, I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
We all wanted to shake Bob a little when he said he wouldn't even try a 3rd party Devi, but Bob collects just about every official release out there HASBRO and TAKARA, so I think one can offer him a bit of a break for not wanting to buy all the 3rd party stuff on top of it. Honestly, Devastator is not my favorite combiner, and I would love for someone(s) else to be tackled-- take your pick!
Pig, I know you haven't been around much, or listened to any other podcasts because you should know that it is a bunch of guys BS-ing on TF topics of interest, and not an audio review of our current figs or soon to be released figs. It's not what everyone wants, but hey, we're not paid, we're not official, and we are not awarded things from companies early to try to sell them to the public later on.
Thanks for listening. Sorry it's not what you wanted it to be.
