If you want something else to help blot out the sun in a collection room, Blackout Curtains, they are really really nice.

Thanks for mentioning the change to the TRU rewards program. I had no idea and just went to check. I think I missed out on a $5 coupon from back in May, never again.

Ya, Classics Bumblebee is bigger than MP Bumblebee. That's my biggest issue with these new MP cars, Deluxe figures are bigger than them. I love them, they're the best G1 toys to get, but I just have a problem justifying the price due to their size.

I was super busy yesterday and didn't have time to post pictures.

Just to do something different, I shot a quick video this morning.




Then I left something out so I took another. It has a special cameo at the end :)

Scotty, what was that Knights of Cybertron poster on your door?

Bought that at Botcon 2013 from Josh Burcham's table. Not sure if he sells online anywhere but I'm sure you could hit him up on Twitter and maybe he'd sell you a print if he's still got any?

Great show everybody! It's going to be hard to narrow down the new hosts. They've all done great so far.

Just wanted to add two cents about shelving. Ikea has a lot of great options. One of their more inexpensive systems is called Ivar. They are simple but large shelves with lots of modular options. The big shelves measure 20 in. deep by 32 in. wide. There are cabinets, drawers, and you can even turn corners with them. I bought the pictured unit in '98, and it has held up since.
I think I paid about $175 for this unit. I have a similar unit opposite this one.

I have built a lot of inner shelves and pieces to maximize space using height. I am about to start a major overhaul, pack up my star wars, and move the legos, because I am on a TF high right now, and it's killing me that half my TFs are packed up.

Just wanted to show another option. Cheers all.

Those are pretty cool. I like the drawers, could use them for paperwork!

Cooooo-miiiiiiiiiiics! :D

That was a good segment of the episode, thanks podcasters. I like hearing Claire's take as a new reader, and wholeheartedly agree on the general endorsement - why are people not reading the comics, even just to try them out? Pick out some early MTMTE, LSTOW, Windblade, xRID pre-12, post-DC, read. Then diss it, if you can.


RodimusConvoy13 you were a nice addition to the cast too! Definitely cannot decide which of the guest podcasters I like most. Maybe keep the rotating cast..?



As for the Rhinox 2013/14 debacle - I care not. It counts as 2014 in my mind. I think TFWiki says so too. Our post was from 2014, and I definitely got it in 2014. So there. [-(

Thanks, man! I had a great time recording.

Had I know the price of that platinum insecticon set at the time of recording, I would have had even less kind stuff to say about it. :grin:

All this discussion and pics of displayed collections made me re-evaluate my collecting habits. I don't have a lot on display and what is on display in on my stereo rack and dresser; makes me want to sell everything that's not on display (90% of it) :lol: Good discussion none the less, love that when it's on the podcast.

Btw, I miss the time skips or whatever they're called. I'm one of those rare weird-o's that doesn't read the comics and I usually skip the comic discussions.

As always, good episode guys and gal. :APPLAUSE:

Love the cameo. I get a huge kick out of seeing your lady's pics of him. Looks like a big sweetheart. :) Very interesting to see how people display too. Fun show.
