This was a fun episode to record. I hope everyone gets a few laughs out of it like I did.

Thanks for another great podcast, folks. A few comments:

(1) Scotty P =/= Jewish. Good to know. If the podcast ever needs a friendly neighborhood Jewish person to chime in, I happily offer my services! ;)

(2) So much hate on Evasion Prime! I personally he think the mold looks really nice, but concede that he needs a Takara paint job & faceplate to be exciting. The Hasbro deco with the open face is just so bland.

(3) On bragging rights, my Dr. Wu Blitzwing upgrade arrived today, and I like it. The yellow helmet is a great matte yellow (almost a golden yellow), and the face is really nice. The removable face feature is unnecessary, but appreciated; I must admit, it is cool to see the skeletal eyes behind that visor. The gun is a vast improvement over the original, with translucent red bits throughout. And finally, the new shoulder pieces puts pressure on, and locks in, the inner shoulder slot/tab assembly. As far as shoulder fixes go, it's acceptable. Overall, glad I went with this over the SXS offering.

The bs sessions are the most fun while recording, just like to have a balance where it doesn't become a rambling 3-4 hour show that mentions Transformers for one hour or so of that time. Input taken though, there are certainly times we can lighten the mood :D

I have to reiterate my affection for the set - the color matching is spot on, the gun is intimidating, the shoulder fixes work, and the head is greatly improved. Highly recommended! :x

I think I share some of what was said about collecting. Long haul? No, not really.
I left for a long time, came back in 2009, did a bit of a binge and am now selling off stuff again. I have limited space, pick out a lot more stuff rather than getting everything, and just give myself more time, space and attention for each figure I do pick up - which tend to be themed (beasts from BH and the upcoming dinoknights together, for example), rather than continuity or cast or whatever. Though my Italian display is mostly by 'line': movieverse, Animated, Prime and Generations.

(And for some reason, I have my personal limit of 100 figures maximum. Over that, and I reconsider the collection. No real reason, as I said, just a personal choice!)

Do you all want some Cadbury's stuff from the UK? :D


Ironhide in Windblade is pretty amazing, I also have to agree. The rest of my opinion is in the review of course. But those covers. THOSE COVERS.

Agreed, Va'al. I want everything in the world to be like those covers. :x

Now, to find a ridiculously skilled photoshop artist to help alter that snarling Starscream into a newer profile image...

The "Twincast Taste Test" sounds like a marvelous idea.

Or, a simple who-can-fit-the-most-eggs-in-their-mouths-at-once challenge! (My money's on Jon3.0)

I just imagined actual eggs as opposed to Cadbury eggs, for some reason, and it was even more hilarious.
