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 :)

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.
Image
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:

Same here! Despite the size of my collection, I always enjoy seeing others immensely. There are so many Transformers out there that I guarantee almost everyone owns at least one that I don't. Plus, I'm so unfocused it's really fun to see good looking small displays of particular series/sublines/characters, since I just cram everything in wherever it'll fit.

Thanks man! And yeah, Candace's Facebook is as much Dorian's as it is hers. Possibly more pictures of him than her on there.

Great collections! Can you guys post links to the cases online? I remember hearing about a cheap Walmart one and would love to see what you were talking about.

I can't find it on Walmart's site, but I found the Target equivalent https://goto.target.com/c/1137247/81938/2092?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.target.com%2Fp%2Froom-essentials%20...%20A-12630803%3C%2Fa%3E

I don't think I've ever paid more than $25 for something similar to that at Walmart. Nothing fancy, but they work just fine. Though, knowing the size of your collection (which dwarfs mine) I'd say you'll need about three dozen of them ;)

lol.. thanks. We can talk about my collection offline. Lets just say, your "clusterf&#k", as you mentioned in the podcast, is a Picasso masterpiece compared to mine. When you have 4 kids, up keeping a collection drops in priority very quickly. And since one of those kids is kicking me out of one of the transformer rooms soon, I don't know what to do :).

Sorry for the necro thread, but........

As I continue to listen to old episodes....

It was so very awesome to hear talk of the beloved old magazine Toyfare. I’m now going to dig out some old boxes and look at old issues.
