We start this episode off with a new reveal that looks as if they could be The Misfits (from Jem of course). Takara unvealed the next United Warriors box set Megatoronia and it is full of day glow goodness but, what does the crew think of this bright reveal?

Up next, we decided to change things up a bit and dive right in to some listener questions which reminds us...too much is never enough. When can collections go too far, and have any of the crew had to identify that moment in their own lives?

After that, we bring the mood down a little and tug at your heartstrings with a few stories of when collecting was not all fun and games. We come out the other end looking for positives and lessons, so who knows, this podcast might just teach you something this week.

The new Robots in Disguise "Clash of the Transformers" toys are starting to hit shelves and a few of us were lucky enough to get their hands on a few. We share our impressions and briefly discuss the high and low points of each character, ponder about instructions, and get completely stumped trying to identify an axe.

The TFCC exclusive Skywarp has started to arrive with a very interesting package. We've also received the last 2 figures in this years TFCC Subscription Service, Impactor and (Blue) Bluestreak but with only 4 months left in 2016, will Sub Service 5 make it? The crew discusses this, plus gives their overall impression on these newest club figures. Also: unused Beast Wars Uprising concepts, and the groaning that follows.

The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop on August 9th, but something was different this year. There didn't seem to be a rush to get the exclusives. Why was this, and why did one podcaster go 'all-in' with this year's products anyhow?

Thanks to Toys R Us Canada, we've seen a sort-of surprise sneak peak of the upcoming Titans Return Doublecross. With not much to go on, the speculation starts to run wild as we hope for better looks of upcoming toys very soon.

Then real bragging rights wrap up another episode, where the IDW topics got cut for time so stay tuned in about two weeks for thoughts on some of the latest comics and perhaps just some of the earliest too. What does it mean? You'll have to come back next time to find out!

Not going to lie, got every single one of those Beast Saga figures. Even though I have no idea how to play the game. And now seeing the Beast Wars Uprising stuff, I'm now even sadder that FunPub isn't getting at least one more year, the chance of finally getting an official Botanica figure was so darn close...

Five minutes in, and we're already getting a SEND THE BOOKS reference. I've missed SEND THE BOOKS.

I had a very vivid Transformers dream when I was a kid around '87. The dream was that my brother had been hiding a Metroplex in his closet and I had found it and was playing with it. When I woke up the dream felt so realistic that I proceeded to tear my brother's closet apart looking for it. I wouldn't end up actually owning a Metroplex until the Encore release.

Haven't finished the show yet, but wanted to chime in on what Counterpunch was saying about the Fort Max sword being to heavy.

I've noticed that a lot of 3rd Party companies are putting diecast metal in their products when it's really not necessary. I really don't see why a sword would need to be. Those new MP style Junkions have diecast legs. Again, doesn't seem necessary.

I know there's a lot of people out there that are old school and just think that if the figures had diecast they'd be better. And I'm sure those same people are a lot of the 3rd Party customer base.

I'm not of the party that diecast automatically equals better. *cough* Titanium *cough*

IT WAS A PLEASURE TO BURN

Also, Burcham delivers again:





As for the relevance of IDW in Japan, it's only true to the extent that no official translation of IDW books (other than All Hail Megatron) currently exists. The Japanese fandom, on the other hand, for the IDW books is fairly big, and only growing with Sakamoto, Zama, Yamaishi, Tsushima being brought in via Hall/Hydra's Phase6 help.

If I may shamelessly plug this thread, once more, in regards to the discussion on completionism and losing appeal in collecting. Ironhidensh also has commented on one by Rodimus Prime, right here.

On the other hand, it's also been used to great effect in cases like the FT Dinobot feet, or just those in general where it allows for really great balance when standing/posing the robot. Like anything, balance is key!

I wanted to thank you guys for answering my question. It was some good stuff. Since asking it, I've come to realize that for me, going to far is buying Transformers simply because they are there. I don't have to buy every new figure that comes out, just the ones I like. Old habits die hard, though. Still, I'm trying to only get figures that I like, and am in the process of getting rid of all the figures that are simply taking up space (or giving them to my sons).

Now you have to answer their question: how do you pronounce your name? Iron Hidensh? Ironhide NSH? :-?
