    You should see what came about when I tried to fuse "Jeremy" with "wang" on a voicemail I made recently.

    Please explain why the Classics Seeker mode is bad now, sure it could use some more articulation, but I think it does a good job at representing the Seekers, plus I only have 2 more to go (Classics 2.0 Starscream and Ramjet)

    I want to say that mold and Rodimus pre-dated the rest of the Classics molds. I could have sworn it's been mentioned on a previous episode a year or so ago.

    I think you should date it in the future so people who take a week to get around to listening don't feel bad about taking so long as then they can pretend they are listening to it sooner.

    Rodimus AND Starscream were the first Classics toys engineered. The date of 1998 refers to the first time "Classics" was concepted as Heroes of Cybertron, but those 2 designs didn't exist yet. The mold designs of Starscream and Rodimus came about in late 2005, but yes they were indeed the first ones. Notice how they are both more true to their original G1 designs while the rest of the line are deviations................. anyhow read that post I did before =P

    That is very interesting, did not know all of that, thanks for the knowledge!

    The biggest thing I would love to see on an improved classics seeker mold is a better heal spur, my seekers always tend to fall over with the slightest nudge! No matter the pose too.

    It sometimes takes me a week to get around to an episode and I don't feel bad about it.

    Wanted to come back and share some thoughts on what you discussed. Classics do overs? I'll throw my hat in the ring for Rodimus as well. Something sleeker looking in bot mode for sure. Only downside is you'd lose the compatibility with Protector. I'm honestly surprised no one's first answer was Grimlock.

    Legos. I just started getting into these. I bought Kreo Sentinel for the head, which at the time, I wanted to use for a possible custom. The damn head was too big, but I had a blast building that thing. So, I went to TRU and bought the little ATV's from the Alien Conquest line and the Dino line (They were buy one get one half off). Also ended up buying some mini-figures too. Now I have almost all of them... wtf?

    I've been wanting to pick up that UFO alien abduction set since Gog spoke about it awhile back. Really enjoying the Lego Dino line, building weapons on top of the Dino's (all Dino-Riders style) is too much fun :D 

    Regarding the arms Microns, I have no desire to import these figures. Stickers are a turn off. But damn. Those Microns. I want them all dammit!

    I think the main reason for not saying Grimlock is that the Masterpiece figure is simply awesome and almost fits the bill.

    With the Arms microns, if they were the domestic line and didn't cost stupid import prices I'd be all over them. Price rises are the main reason I haven't got the latest United too, I point blank refuse to pay £45 for Beast Wars 10th moulds when I can get the 10th versions MISB for less.

    Gogdog - For RID Arcee's gun I have her posed wielding it up upside down with both hands like a mini-gun. Otherwise yeah her gun looks rediculous.

    My hope for Generations Dirge and Thundercracker (before we saw the pictures) was that they were new molds based on modern jets. Mostly because of that part of the fan base whose head would have exploded over it.
