Awesome podcast (in the middle of it now
Also, I just had to mention this. I have never and likely will never attend a Botcon or any other 'con' as I am very much NOT the socializing type (the word 'hermit' describes me perfectly) but you guys mentioned early on one of the sellers i.e. Tempting Toys so I did some Googling to see what they had since you mentioned getting a very hard to find Japanese Beast Wars figure (the show-accurate Terrorsaur).
I found the site and discovered he/they had one of the figures I've been needing to complete my BW repaints collection (aside from a few convention exclusives), namely the UK exclusive green 'Transmetal' Claw Jaw (I already have every other version, including the one that came with the 'Ikard' that comes with the Tako Tank playset). This completes all of the repaints for me I think (I already have ever version of the 2 Spittor molds, including Diver and the UK exclusive red 'Transmetal' version as well as RiD Slapper) so this made me very very happy.
Given that this seller seems to have quite a few such rare gems, I'm certain I'll be shopping there often.
