Ryan Yzquierdo: Soundwave without a doubt. There’s just something very awesome about him, despite the fact that he transforms into an outdated Walkman that plays cassette tapes. His toy is still my favorite after all of these years. He’s just a classic character and a classic toy.

Dr Drew ... I'll take that!

People that know me often compare me to Kevin Smith.

Surreal thinking about how you guys picture me that haven't met me in person. Or the rest of the podcast staff. Hmm ... makes me think I should start up that Seibertron.com staff page idea again.
