    The Alternity Seeker was hot garbage for me. Continually falling apart in multiple spots, the least intuitive transformation I’ve dealt with. And small for the trouble and price.

    And when DHL used to deliver on the regular around here in the US, drivers would definitely sign for parcels the deliver when a signature was explicitly required. It happened for even a TV.

    Come on, that picture man... I haven\'t listened to the podcast yet, but I don\'t know if I need that temptation in my life. I\'m doing a draft with some friends next Saturday, and I\'m reading up on the lore for the block, but I also have a combo pack (Booster Box, Fat Pack, 2 Themedecks) and a prerelease box sitting in my Amazon cart. I know I shouldin\'t, but I got into Magic during Invasion, left after Ravnica, and Return to Dominaria is really tugging at me.

    I never did, but the vast majority of my play was 20 years ago in the dawn of CCG.

    Pre-releases are usually pretty chill affairs and veteran players kind of have a certain understanding that such events are usually for entry level players and will instinctually dial it back a little. Depends on your card pool too. Even the better players can be outdone by a poor card pool and natural variance in sealed or draft formats.

    Vangelus, welcome to the world of cardboard crack.

    I plan to call him Optronix.

    Pax from another universe where he was just as good at his job but wasn't charismatic enough to inspire others to follow his lead. With almost no support, he went it nearly alone and became a total butcher the Cybertron he saved didn't want around. So they captured and dumped him into another dimension.

    Quick question on the editing stuff, at the end of the podcasts (all of them I listen to) it seems like the last 30 seconds of discussion and outro are repeated on loop for 3-4 minutes for some reason. I am wondering if it is the app I use to listen, but I don't seem to get that problem on other podcasts, anyone else experience that at the end?

    Thanks for answering. Glad you went with annoyances and Seth was right, I meant mythos, not fandom.. Nothing in the actual mythos angers me. It’s goddamn fictional transforming robots. The day I get angry is the day I quit.

    Basically I can guarantee that literal minutes of dead air is something I won't do on purpose :lol 

    That is very weird D: Especially if it's only happening with ours

    I was a bit confused at first, almost logged on to complain even, then I figured it was probably intentional to illustrate the issues of the software, hence my response at the start of the thread.

    I recently sold my original RID Optimus and Magnus because I wanted to scale back to just G1 characters. I wonder if I would have gotten more money now that this encore set has some issues. Not that I'm trying to scalp, just thinking about what could have been. It really is a bummer to see this happen to everyone.

    Otherwise, great episode as always!

    And I know it was barely touched upon in the beginning of the Magic discussion, but the Hot Wheels community is really horrific. The “investing” and hoarding and Mattel’s even lousier distribution.

    Magic’s looking like a better thing to get into more and more to me.

    I feel like I get 99% percent of the enjoyment from hotwheels by watching a channel where this guy shows off his collection and lets his viewers vote on which cars run through different tracks he's got set up and films that. Can't remember what the channel was though, so maybe it wasn't for me...
