Bot Shots are awesome. Love those things, but like Ryan said, there isn't much you can discuss about them.

Yes, let's kill Bumblebee.

'Free' comic books are ordered at a loss for retailers--they're like .04 a piece. Somewhere around that.

On the subject of the TFCC subscription service, I'm looking forward to it but I paid just over $70 to have SG Drift and Over run shipped to me this year (I have an international membership). There are three figures that I'm interested in next year.
If it turns out that one toy is released every couple of months and gets shipped by itself, then I'm as good as out of the club. Which will be unfortunate. The shipping will just be too expensive.
I cant be the only one in this boat can I?
Again, good work on the podcast.

As always, I enjoyed the podcast. Laughed pretty hard at Counterpunch's "Impossible." in response to Jon about the Prime Wii game. So far the game seems to only be confirmed for the Nintendo systems. The trailer makes it look fairly bad. My two cents. Fall of Cybertron though, bring it on. War was good fun. I really hope they've taken a hard look at all the online issues it had. I liked that part very much but the connection issues were laughable for any modern game.

It says "Transformers" on it.
Found this on Allspark.com.

Gundam Fansites have an umbrella on third party talk simply because BanDai has killed off any sort of Gunpla that isn't their own - they have sued KO companies and the like before they can even flourish.
Good luck with your custom CP, hopefully it leads you onto the road of bigger things!
My favorite part of Seibertron.com is the edit button on everyone's posts ^_^
If I could kill off a character I'd kill off Unicron, as I'd then have the power of a God, be master of the Universe and have a fembot harem .

I'm glad you touched on the whole 3rd party downplay on Seibertron. I had thought some of Seibertron's comments in the dedicated thread were getting very defensive and a little stand-off-ish. (Can't say I blame him given some of the responses.) But it was a relief to hear Seibertron's opinion on the matter with his own words. It reassured me that it was a rational decision born from a strong but fair personal opinion. Still a little gutted mind you.
The talk of The Avengers amused me. I myself have seen it three times, yet because of the impatience of my mates I was unaware of a second credits scene. Looks like I need a fourth viewing. I agree with what jon3.0 said about the Transformers movies: about them not being Transformers movies but movies with Transformers in. I didn't think The Avengers would even work as a film. Five or six characters that could have/have had their own movie and seven actors that could/have lead their own movie all in one 2 and 1/2 hour movie seemed crazy. Yet it worked. There's no excuse for how poor the Transformers movies are.
I can join the club of having friends that used to own Transformers that never existed. My ex and her brother said that there was a G1 Arcee toy!!! I couldn't argue with them as I was stunned into silence that two people shared the same illusion.

My son was 2 1/2 at the time I shot the video, he knows a crazy amount of Transformers names, not because I shove it down his throat, but he wants to know the names of everything (cars characters, Transformers, Dinosaurs, disney characters) He even asks me the names of his non-licensed plush animals. He actually has now learned to name his own animals (one named after our cat who died a few days after I returned from Botcon), anyway that is why he knows so many TF names. He also knows more than 30 dinosaur names with correct pronunciation. As for him knowing the TF theme song, it started out as something I sang to him to calm him down after he got hurt, and then it became one of the many songs I sing to him at night... every night. My son has an amazing memory and attention span and helps him to remember all this stuff. The only TF show he watches regularly is Rescue Bots, which we watch as a family. We did watch some episodes of Prime and G1 but quickly decided it was too violent.
My son chooses what he's into, I don't, know matter what he's into I'll be there by his side playing with him and enjoying the things he enjoys.
Keep up the great work on the podcast and thanks Jon for sticking up for me
