Bwahaha must send more Out of the Blurr purchases to get mentioned on the Twincast. :twisted:

Care when you're getting ML Rampage Ryan, I'd suggest not to get it via BBTS Vintage. Got swindled pretty hard.. I got Rampage in it but the Takara Clear Micron Air Assault team was switched with the Hasbro version.

In regards to Gundams/Kotobukiya/Kits and their relationship with stickers, it's pretty much a staple. However it doesn't exactly mean it's good. I find it funny that it's 2012 and the kits still aren't void of decals/labels, but I guess it's just sticking to what makes the hobby. The G1 SS comment was funny because every Gundam kit has eye stickers that are mandatory, except for higher grade kits. Just glad TFs are fortunate not to have to deal with that anymore.

Ya know, I don't mind stickers. I think for me the problem is that they are coming at the cost of already planned paint aps.

Everyone made good points during the Arms Micron subject. I guess it just comes down to personal preference and collecting habits. Me? The cool Micron does not justify the lack of paint and... what were they called? Cancers? Herpes? Those things.

Just got to work, so starting to listen now. Just listened to last week's show, though, laughed my ass off, and even had my name dropped, wish I had listened to that sooner. Off to listen to this episode now!

I have to agree, applying the stickers on the generation one toys gives you a personal attachment to them.

The mascot Primes from the Cybertron Satellite aren't toys. They're just characters part of a promotional campaign.


And there is no shame in liking My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic? It's all the My Little Pony series that came before it that were saccharine and mundane. This current Friendship is Magic series is the first one to defy the stereotypes associated with girls cartoons, in that it's *not* "girly", and is instead geared towards everyone of both genders and all ages. It's good quality entertainment, named the best cartoon of 2010, way worth watching. 8)


She's not called Blackarachnia because the creators of Prime wanted a new character who was only an homage to Blackarachnia, rather than *being* Blackarachnia. Plus, the big difference between the two is that the Blackarachnia character is a Femme Fatale, while Airachnid is a Sadist.


Animated Omega Supreme was the Orion. :-B


Another great one, guys. Keep it up. ;)

Or in my case, with my reissues, a personal dissatisfaction with them.

Great show guys!

*Spoiler*

From what I gathered from "Crossfire" is that the Insecticons have a sort of hive mind, and Airrachnid is some sort of decedent or relative to the Insecticons, still possessing some small link to the hive mind, but not being subject to it.

Explains her bug like tendencies and also makes me appreciate her Insecticon themed deco.

Is it just me, but was there like 10 minutes of dead air before the show closed

Plus, they didn't want anybody to sympathize with her. Blackarachnia was always the good bot, turned bad, with a hint of redemption in her. Airrachnid was intended to be nothing but bad and they didn't want any preconceived notions about the character based on name.
