    I think he means "cool" in that well written sense you say, not "I wanna have a drink with this guy" cool.

    To be honest, I never really associate Apeface and Snapdragon with the other '87 Decepticon Headmasters because of the triple changing, especially since it left the beast modes having a sort of "covered in chunks of futuristic jet" motif. I just want some other kind of awesome mecha beast with a cockpit, like a robotic shark or bear or platypus. Twinferno kinda scratched that itch a little, but not enough to make it go away.

    Please forgive the bump but I hope Vangelus sees this. Chris (can I call you Chris), you and I are very similar on our Mon preferences. After G1 they got weirder and weirder. But sir, I would definitely suggest you look at the Mon from Black/White. Those are the closest I've encountered to the feel of G1 Pokemon since G1. I'm curious if you would agree. Maybe I should make this a listener question…

    Just listened to this yesterday - thanks for making a very considered response to my question, and for getting to it relatively quickly! In answer to Vangelus's query about whether <5 episodes of sleep paralysis constitutes a problem - I would say no, <5 episodes in a lifetime (i.e. rare) would be within normal ranges. So you're safe, in that sense! :) 

    I loved the moment when (heavy paraphrasing here):
    Aaron: Hang on, I have a character that NO ONE will have ever thought about.... BEAST WARS DINOBOT!!
    (Pause)
    Vangelus: Er, TJ kinda just spent several minutes discussing Dinobot as his first answer...

    So whilst Vangelus is in the all clear from the sleep paralysis perspective, Aaron may have some serious sleep attack issues there! And yes, you can just blame me ;)

    I blame spotty Comcast internet. Or something. Surely I didn't space out. I'd never do something like that. Ever.

    I definitely have a thing with associations with one thing. A game, not a toy. Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Played it during the aftermath of my parents divorce, and a bad period of my own depression. It's the only Bethesda RPG I just cannot get myself to replay. I've tried a few times, but the game just brings up such shitty memories

    In regards to the talk about Having powerful memories attached to a toy, I have super strong memories for Energon Inferno for a couple of reasons, those being, it\'s one of only like 3 toys I still have from when I was a kid and it was the first toy I ever hunted for. To make a long story short, Skyblast was my first transformer and I got him before seeing the show at all and after that I made a point of checking out the show, because of obvious reasons, and after watching it and seeing Inferno I immediately decided I needed to have him because I was way into fire tucks at the time and I have a lot of memories of going to tons of stores and tearing apart the toy sections with my mom in order to find him and when we did and she bought it for me it was one of the first time I ever really succeeded in doing something pretty much completely out of my own will and I will always remember that time as one of the best childhood bonding experiences I had with my mom.

    I actually also have a strong memory attached to inferno. When I was a kid I got pnuemonia and was in the hospital for over a week. I remember watching some episodes of g1 they had in hand and asking my parents for an inferno. My dad showed up the next day with energon inferno in hand. To this day that's one of my favorite figures.

    that is very similar to the story of me and the original dragonzord, it was the first time I truly was hunting for a toy & felt momentous victory upon finding it
