    $40.00 'a bit much' for something that big...

    Not really considering people thought it was going to be more like $60.00 when it first showed up as pictures.

    It's worth $40.00 for the two ship modes & Vader even if Anakin is gormless.

    Have fun in faking a genuine interest in the TF Universe game. (or not)

    VLC is great !!! (I love how you can get around disc region issues with it too)

    A Le Man Cars is what Crasher was also known as Group C Racers.

    Non Newtonian fluids include Window glass and Thick Custard.

    Breaking things Live on Mic is a bit like Peaugh - Chuckle - I think Peaugh might just as well just hit his toys with a hammer and cut out the middle man.

    So am I supposed to take from this podcast that It's bad to be a Bronie ; but it's OK to be buying the 21st Century Equivellent of a Spudgun. ?

    http://www.coolthings.com/wp-conten...011/04/classicbowmallow1.jpg&h=160&w=228&zc=1

    Do you run around dressed in speedos back and forth through garden Sprinklers like the adverts with them ?

    Or do you do what Power Ranger Collectors do with their guns and swords and mount them on the wall like a great Hunter's gun collection ?

    [EDIT] Oh I see they are for Torturing dogs then.

    RE: Hubs shows other than Transformers

    G.I. Joe Renegades was absurdly awesome and EVERYONE should give it a watch.

    My Little Pony is pretty all right. Lots of fun if you can gie it a chance but a little over rated.

    A show that gets looked over alot is Dan Vs. It has the voice talents of Curtis Armstrong and Dave Foley and is very funny. The main character Dan is a raged fueled ass hat who drags his Best (and only) friend Chris on crazy revenge schemes agains people, objects and even Countries who have wronged him.

    And of course the will be greatest show of the year is soon to air on the hub, The Aquabats Super show!

    I really object to the Gi Joe art style on most if not all of the non RAH shows so even though I like the Characters and happily buy the toys on the rare instances I see them.

    I probably wouldn't buy Renegades toys unless they were heavily clearanced just because I object to the look of them. I don't really feel the need for a different size version of Sigma 6.

    But I find Gi Joe something Hasbro often targets very wrong for my tastes I want Gi Joe to look pretty normal and Cobra to have the bonkers gear. and I want to be able to buy a 21st C Cobra Soldier and stand it next to a 1980's Baroness and not have it look wrong.

    So for that reason I've not watched Renegades either as yet... if there's one with a decent tank battle of something in it I might give it a chance though. if only if it might give me something to watch before Thundercats comes back.

    The reveal of the HISS tank in Renegades was actualy fairly bad ass. Im a person who isnt super into RAH, I like the marvel and now IDW comics but never got into the show. I loved the art style and am sad Hasbro didnt go all out on the Toys and tried to make them look Semi realistic instead : (

    At 1 hour, 49 secnds in, two things to say:

    1.) Vangelus, if you liked the humor in the opening two parter of Friendship is Magic, you will like the rest of the show. After that two parter, the show becomes a straight-up comedy, and those elements in the opening are what pulled a lot of people in, so when the show focused on that, the two parter looked weaker in hindsight. However, if you preferred the action/comedy mix, you need only watch the season 2 premier.

    2.) You SHOULD all feel bad for not watching Renegades. It's a great ride, and literally my only complain with it personally is Ripcord. Just... Ripcord. When you see the show, you'll know what I'm talking about.

    This man speaks the truth. It's a shame there haven't been any new episodes lately.

    You guys once joked around with the idea "What if Unicron was Earth?" and "Will the Autobots destroy Earth to stop Unicron?." Having watched Transformers Prime episode 24 "One Shall Rise," one of those got answered. Very cool guys.

    Unicron isn't actually the Earth though. It's more like he's inside the planet and the Earth is trapping him.

    Still, the fact that they were so close is on a par with what happened with MC Paddington.

    Well this was a good podcast to listen to before I had to load old, rotted pieces of wood onto a trailer to be hauled to the city dump.

    Regarding Omegus' GFG figure, it sounds like it is indeed Yujin's, I had the same figure and all the accessories match it. Specially the 2 chest thing.

    CAREFUL, the gold paint never cured in mine and eventually it liquefied/became runny and those parts were left without any paint. :L
    Hopefully it is a freak occurrence, but be careful.
