Never thought I'd see the day where the podcast encouraged me to do a gallery of a figure just so I can get a fun spotlight picture. :D

Also can't believe that I had a marathon photo shoot for 10 hours last night taking photos of Micromasters Erector, Overload, Roughstuff, Flattop, Movie 2007 Inferno, Mudflap, Longarm, United e-Hobby exclusive Kup, Hot Rod, Scourge, and United Rumble & Frenzy. I ended up with around 1,200 photos so I must be able to take about 120 photos per hour on average which is about a photo every 30 seconds which isn't that bad considering that I have to transform figures, get other figures out for comparison shots, opened up Mudflap and Inferno, pose the figures, etc.

Are you still having trouble with this? The file seems to work OK for me.

Good lord. It finally dawned on me why no one had responded to this topic after almost 24 hours of it being up. I had left this topic in the staff forum so that I could make my changes instead of moving it to the Transformers General Discussion forum, which means none of you could respond. Doh!

Yay! I can finally post on this podcast!
I tried to last night, but it kept telling me "You are not authorized to view/post in this forum." :???:

Also, I'm kinda flattered by Ryan's mentioning of my name (though, I'm sure it was just an accident, since he mentioned Deszaras he probably meant to say "Star Saber" instead of "Sabrblade" "Saber Blade" :P ).

Also, all this talk of the G1 Marvel Comics has me wanting to mention that I recently got started into reading the old G1 Marvel U.S. Comics for the first time. I'm currently up to issue 26 and am reading the G.I. Joe/TF crossover simultaneously (since it occurs around issue 23-27 of the main TF comic series).

"On behalf of Sabrblade, Yunaiteddo!" - :oops: :lol: I love you guys.

Just finished the listening to the pod cast. I loved listening to you guys talk about the old G1 comics i tried starting a thread a while back to see what other fans thought but not many people answered. I for one love them and i really liked how because of the toys the stories kept moving and the characters progressed. I also loved the UK ones they were great. But what i did miss hearing in this episode was the ask the twincast as well as this week in transformers history. That was one of my favorite segments of the show is it going to be coming back? Again it is great to listen to you guys talk about what is going on with transformers keep up the good work.

This was the first Seibertron podcast I've had a chance to listen to; it was very informative.

I like how you guys explain the economics of everything such as marketing with the comic books and toy distribution.

Starting with 16, you guys have got it down. I enjoyed the new lady, didn't catch the name (Lena?). Jon is quite enjoyable as well. Glad to see the Itunes stuff is sorted now too. I just loaded my library to this computer so I'm ready and excited to be able to subscribe to the podcast. Good timing!
