    Anything to hate on a toy, I guess. I could see it being a big negative in some people's eye with Armada Overload, since his sliding pieces can be easily removed outside of their intended purpose. But on Function X, it looks like it's all self contained. How can you call something partsforming if you can't even take off the part?

    Honestly the fact that the head on Code was almost, but not quite, compatable with G1 Headmasters (and therefore not compatable with the heads from Junkion Blacksmith and Headrobots) was enough for me to cancel my preorder. I'll wait to see if the head for Toyworld's Hardbone is G1 compatable now. They could have easily made it the same size, and put a slot in Code's neck for the bar on G1 toys to slide in. It was so close they obviously decided that their heads would be something not compatable with G1. That's annoying to me.

    I don't understand that at all. I don't see how mixing and matching heads is a make or break. I may do it once as a joke to see how it looks then never again.

    Haven't finished listening, but if you need better papercraftin' paper Vangelus, get a pack of card stock. you can get it in the office supply aisle in department stores, about six bucks for fifty sheets in the U.S.

    This podcast cracked me up, and convinced me to watch Dredd.

    Leaning like a gangster and shoutouts, woo.

    That Baltan II fellow wanted me to clarify that was deep into the OMFG! stuff. Past tense. Couldn't afford to keep going with all the stuff they've churned out since Series 2's Kickstarter went up. I do keep my ears close to the ground and pay attention to some of the stuff they've been doing though, like the not-OMFG-but-close Deadbeet figure that came out recently and the various colors in the works. Series 3 might get me to pay for a Kickstarter set, but no more chasing colors, and the ones I already have will be sold off.

    Magfest Saturday was fun~.

    Enjoyed to podcast. It's good to hear that I was not the only one having a hard time finding Dredd on Blu-ray. I went to 2 Best Buys, Target and 2 Wal marts and they were all sold out. I gave up and had to order it from Amazon, but it was worth the wait.

    I somehow completely glazed over the whole papercraft energon cube thing, so thanks for that! And thanks for the Battle Beast commercial, you now get all of my love!

    Also it's odd that I don't recall Animated Magnus having a voice chip at all, I'll have to dig mine out, but that Japanese one sounds awesome.

    And a gigantic BRAVO to the commentary on the constant negativity in the fandom. I know I am just as guilty sometimes, and it really helps me to take another look at myself and how I react and perceive things. But the whole newborn baby thing with "TRY BETTER NEXT TIME" just cracked me up. Well done guys.
