    I've never actually heard of Scoop until BotCon, and he looks pretty cool. I've only ever wanted a new Armada Starscream, and we're getting that, but I do wish he had the proper wing sword. I can get over the abundance of red.

    I'm wondering if the masterpiece and platinum figures will actually count in the list. Maybe there's more than one list, or I'm totally wrong :)

    I missed about a year of the podcast a few years back, and a chunk of the first episodes, so I'm listening right from the beginning because I'm insane.

    Seth, you had the best audio quality in episode one. Drew probably has the worst. It's great. I'm totally looking forward to getting up to the Unleashed Guy stuff again. That was some of the funniest stuff I've ever heard on the podcast.

    I love the foreshadowing Aaron dropped about his name, because we totally do just call him "Aaron" now.

    But as for the present...

    I don't mind the two-man show, but it'd be nice to hear from Drew and Lupis every now and then. I'd love to hear another four-man show again. Not every week, but just once in a blue moon.

    Did I miss something, or is Gog not planning to come back full-time? I know he's busy at the moment, but I thought he'd been coming back eventually. I hope he does, because he's great fun, and his rants (which I miss dearly from PrimeTime) are always just the right mixture of anger and logic.

    You're forgetting the AGC versions of figures, like the AGC Metroplex. I believe the Masterpiece figures do indeed have Platinum Series numbers.

    You guys mention more than one picture of the Fan Built Bot bot Wingblade, but the only one I'm seeing on the news story (or anywhere else) is the pic of the face/upper body linked in the news story.

    Can anyone point me to the other pics?

    Yeah, i counted them up too, and if they wanted to stop there, they could, unfortunately :/ hopefully they won't, i would love that Alex Milne-designed Star Saber and a few more beast characters.

    RE: Groundpound, legends Tailgate's targetmaster, i stared at his weapon mode for too long and now i can't unsee Tailgate wielding a weaponized Pooper Scooper

    Wow. That was kind of a 1%er response to those who tried to buy MP Soundwave from TRU.
    Not everyone can afford $250 for Soundwave and his cassettes. I'm one of those. I was excited and stayed up all night. Then to have the company bungle the release was frustrating. Unfortunately, I can't afford Takara toys like you guys on the podcast. Guess I'm not a true trans-fan like you guys. :( 

    Just kiddin.

    I understand your point. I enjoy the podcast. Keep up the good work!

    Seth, sent you a defence of Rob Ford. Well...it's not much of a defence. The man's a terrible human being, but it's the best one possible.
