    I made a thread about game called RTS game called Air Mech (based off the old Sega Genesis game, Herzog Zwei) that's free to play on PS4 and XB1. That Transformers can immulate and run with.

    The potential is there.

    Chris, I thought we had agreed to not mention my ties to Starcraft. It was a lot of work paying off the blood debt to the Jo-pak. South Koreans take it very seriously when you don’t throw a game. Why do you think I used aksmth as a cover for so long?

    I honestly disagree that the first Pacific Rim is real robots, but for me, the distinction between the two flavors of mecha has less to do with the way the robots move and operate and more to do with the attitude behind them and tone of the story. And Pacific Rim firmly falls into the "people are awesome and our machines are symbols of the greatness we can achieve" attitude intrinsic to super robots. You can have super robots that move like heavy titans just as much as you can have ones that move like agile ninjas. Giant Robo and The Big O are probably the best modern examples. My and I think a lot of people's issue is that DeKnight simply didn't execute that chosen style with the same skill and attention to detail that del Toro executed his chosen approach.

    @Vangelus The Squats aren't coming back to Warhammer 40k per se. But a single Squat is.
    A Squat Bounty Hunter is being introduced into the Necromunda board game via expansion. also, it was recently announced that the Sisters of battle would finally be getting plastic minis and updated rules.

    I would like to ask Rexidus' question, but with warhammer 40k instead of Starcraft. since you 2 are more familiar with 40k.

    Another awesome episode as usual! While I am excited that KB could be coming back, I have mixed memories of them. I fondly recall a large bin in the center of the store where I could get the 3 Toy Biz Marvel and X-Men figures for $10. I used to go every week and buy 3 figures. I loved that! However, as I got older and got into Marvel Legends and got back into Transformers, I remember thinking the prices were always more than other stores.
    I also remember going on a date in high school and the girl I was with wanted to go to KB. While there, I found the Rhino DVD set of Season 1 of the original cartoon for around $20 and purchased it. That girl never called me again.

    Its funny how after avoiding GW's plastic products for the longest time, they finally got me with their Age of Sigmar line in the form of the Kharadron Overlords. Steampunk Dwarfs in airships was just too fluffy for me to pass up on and after handling their model kits, I can understand why the reputation of them being one of the best model makers is well deserved. Hate to say it but GW stuff is head and shoulders above Privateer Press and Corvus Belli (though CB makes very good metal miniatures with insane detail).

    Glad you guys had some fun with my question. It's completely cool with me that you didn't know StarCraft well enough to answer. I've just been been on a SC fix lately and love listening to you guys invent new characters so I threw it out there.
