    Been thinking about it, and I don't think I've ever completed a toyline 100%.

    I GUESS I'm complete on the Kamen Rider Ghost Change series, but also the next set isn't out yet. I've ALMOST completed the Jazwares Sonic the Hedgehog toyline, I'm only missing 3 or 4 figures, & it's still something I'd like to do.

    While I don't have EVERY figure, I am complete on all the 'intended' combiners in Combiner Wars; Superion, Menasor, Defensor, Bruticus, Optimus Maximus, Devastator, Sky Reign, Computron, Victorion, & Liokaiser. No Wave 1 Optimus, or Cyclonus or single-packed Scattershot, or Wreck-Gar since he's technically not part of Sky Reign. But I do have all the Legends for the other 5 combiners.

    I DO have all of the first series of Bot Shots, before they started stuff like the flip-shots and spin-shots or whatever.

    The only toyline that I have ever completed was Barnyard Commandos way back in the very early 90's. Still have them. I thought they were the coolest thing when I was in second grade.

    I liked the flow of the What We Got section with the mic-passing.

    Hello Vangelus and the gang.

    The inspiration for this question isn\'t transformers but actually your talk of 4 Inch-nel Megaman.EXE.  I really like it, but the thing is I messed with their classic Megaman first, and he was so \'...meh...\' that EXE was super elevated in my eyes.  As time passed I have come to see, his faults (a lot of them owing to squeezing what they could out of that size), but for that first week or two, he was goddamn amazing.   Has that ever happened to you?  Has encountering a poor toy only made your introduction to something better feel great even it was merely alright?

    I'm line complete on Visionaries and Sectaurs and figure complete (ignoring vehicles) on several other lines.

    And in response to the the What we got - I also think that the Hot Rod is pretty terrible.

    Regarding Bisk - I have the Adventure version, and have the same issue as Aaron with parts becoming untabbed in vehicle mode. For me it's the claw top/front fender on the right, which kind of gets pulled out of place when everything is done.

    Hello, friends.

    Long time listener, first time poster.

    There has been a lot of speculation about future themes for the main toy lines in the vein of combiners, headmasters, etc.

    What are your thoughts on a revisiting of the Action Master line of characters with fully imagined alt modes? Or at the very least, incorporating these characters into the current generations line up? Some of these have already appeared in repaints like RTS Jazz as Kick Off, and Skull Smasher as soon-to-be Kroc. But who doesn't want a sweet, Rad Motorcycle? "Count ME in!"

    What would you add to this line to make it stand out? Action Master partners? Perhaps incorporating them into a combined mode?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Hello, quick question that does not need to be on the podcast but if possible answered here regarding the finishing of a line collection. Is there a checklist online somewhere of all the lines and variants to know when the line is complete or something like it? I was thinking that during the question. Thanks

    Every year or two I think about finally completing the Animated line, and every time I convince myself not to. Someday I'll probably lose that struggle
