    BLOWTORCH STEAK trumps all steaks. There is no argument to be had.

    If someone were actually underhandedly trading in wave 1 Generations figs for wave 1 FOC toys, I'd say that in the end they pretty much got what they deserve.


    Cause they're not as good toys.

    I wouldn't be too worried about the guy returning one thing for another, as long as they are legitimately the same DCPI. It's one Deluxe for another, and I sometimes wish I could pick up a figure from a few years back. An extra Wreck Gar or Thunderwing taking the place of a FOC Prime won't be a shelf warmer at Target. As long as he's not tampering with the product, or swapping things with different values, he's not commiting fraud.

    I've seen much worse at one of my local stores. There is some guy who lives near me who has a scam set up where he buys a Leader class toy at Walmart for $40, and at the same time buys a clearance toy at Target for maybe $7. He then scans the UPC off the Leader, prints it onto a sticker, and sticks the fake UPC on the clearance toy. He returns the clearance toy with the leader's receipt, and gets his $40 back! Then Walmart sticks the clearance toy on the shelf, where it rings up for $40! He uses Target exclusives, because that way if Walmart peels off the sticker the REAL UPC won't come up as anything, it's not in their computer!

    OH MY GOD!
    Get the hell out of my head.
    While listening to the previous episode, I thought it ended abruptly, and thought for a sec it was a false ending.
    I was going to suggest to the crew to have a false outro, outro and all, just to "duhfuq" the listener-ship. And you did it. You fucking did it. Exactly what I thought, 2 days ago. God. Damn.

    I think aksmith is literally a mad scientist. I will forever imagine him as Wilson. Even though I've seen his face, I'm sure his next door neighbor has only seen his eyes poking up over the fence as he talks to him about weird obscure science facts.

    You did miss an Animated third party product. Impossible Toys did that set of a Sari, Isaac and Fanzone figures.

    Honestly though, I don't think the lack of third party Animated stuff is because people can't make toys in that style. It's because they don't want to, or don't think people would buy them. The majority of third party stuff is Classic+ (or CHUGRY, Classic, Henkei, Universe, Generations, Reveal the sheild and Yellow box), because that's what fans want. There is a smattering of ACCESSORIES for movie, Prime, Animated and Beast Wars, but no stand alone figures for those settings. Just about every stand alone figure is CHUGRY style, because that's what sells.

    BTW - Just kidding with the "CHUGRY". I had to use it. hehehe
