    I don't have much interest in the higher end collectibles like 1/6 scale or statues but I'll be sure to give this a listen, sounds like an interesting podcast with a good crew(and a pretty clever name!)

    I'm only 2/3 through it, but I'm really enjoying it. Like I said, I don't collect high end items but I do enjoy hearing about the franchises covered such as Star Wars, Marvel, and of course Transformers. You guys manage to keep my attention and bring up interesting points and opinions on the subjects. I also feel the length of the podcast is a pretty good one, not too short but not too long. I'll definitely be subscribing via iTunes once it goes up there.

    As for you questions at the end, I'd love to hear you guys cover Kamen Rider/Sentai related items if you have any interest in them, as I consider those somewhat high end since they do cost a pretty penny to keep up with. As for what property I'd like to see Hot Toys tackle, Metal Gear Solid, I bet they could do some good stuff with that property.

    Thanks glad your liking it even though your not too into high end stuff. The podcast should be up on itunes soon its currently being approved.

    As far as Kamen Rider goes for me i have never really watched any of it , i did pick up a few of the SH Figuarts when the line first started because i like the designs though. Hot Toys actually does have the Metal Gear Solid license it was announced last fall i believe so you may be seeing figures sooner rather then later. Medicom also did a bunch of items for metal gear solid that looked pretty decent.

    Oh yeah, I forgot they picked it up with like a dozen other licenses at the time. Not liking those Medicom ones, IMO the Play Arts Kai automatically outdo them if for nothing more than the headsculpts.

    Yea Play Arts has been doing some really great work, especially for the price point. I get more and more tempted every time i see one.

    Almost at the halfway point guys and it is great so far. The production is top notch :) 

    I think every person needs to own either a Mark IV or VI.

    Hah thanks man, yea Crasis put in a lot of audio work glad its paying off :) .

    I agree i think if you are only going to have one it should be the Mark VI, but personally i think they all are great and have my own hall of armor at this point lol.

    ^ *waves Jedi fingers* You will listen. And you will be tempted.

    :D 



    Thanks for the kind words, guys!

    I can't say nearly enough about the ton of OUTSTANDING work that crasis has put in on this. He's a hell of a producer/director/editor/host.

    We had a great time recording the first one, and I'm psyched to get to episode 2 later this week.

    I actually thought of another topic you guys might tackle sometime, though it's debatable if it's high end or not. Masters of the Universe Classics. I know Jarodimus dabbles in the line and at $20-40 a pop while being online exclusive I think they can be considered high-end, just not as high up as other lines.

    "Dabbles". I've got everything but Goddess and Zodac so far. :lol 

    I'd imagine the line will come up at some point in our discussions. :)
