Yum.

Perhaps this can wash out the feeling of crotchety, "I know what's best you fucking ignorant students" professor from my brains.

You guys should really consider uploading to the Windows Phone marketplace. If you do, i'll have myself, and all of my windows phone owning friends give you 5 star reviews.

3 minutes in. Nolan North was said to be voicing Cliffjumper in the same article where it was announced he was playing a archeologist. I can't believe you didn't me- *head shot*
seekerblackout

Chykin

guard convoy

phoenix88

Matty
I'm still on hour 2 of 187! You guys really stepped it up!
HarryFA1
Aww hell. I haven't listened yet, someone please tell me, did my question sound stupid?
Vangelus
The rapidfire release is all thanks to Gog's continued help in his editing of the odd-numbered episodes!

I actually have one more thing ready, but I'll wait til tomorrow morning/afternoon to put it up.
TrueNomadSkies
Great job as always. You guys have such a great presence on the mic that I often forget this is simply a forum's podcast about toys. Not to take anything away from the aim or subject matter, but you know.
CNCBrawl56
OMG ......... new......podcast.........can't..........download.........fast enough!

Seriously you guys rock!
rattraprules98
Hey, my names Aaron the Transformer. This is my friend, Chris, the Transformer

Wait, Vangelus, how does Walmart Deluxe Prime feel tiny if he's just as tall as most Generations Deluxes?
EDIT: Omegus is doing a Plastic Addict on Thunderhead? Yay! It seems my passing on him was a good choice.
Fisitronus
Heh.. heh heh... you think YOUR toys are expensive Vangelus, hello to our friends in Australia!
TrueNomadSkies
Yeah, but you guys pretty much live in Dinobot island, so it's to be expected.
RedAlert Rescue
Walmart/Sainsbury's Prime feels a bit lacking in mass next to Armada Supercon Prime ; But he is taller.

I think you have to live in Middle Europe to have the right to complain about pricing as after all canada isn't paying $45.00 for a Deluxe yet.

I might sometimes moan about paying 12.99 *USD$18.00* but I have it lucky as they are often on sale for 25% off or better and it's still half the price they pay in Middle Europe. Irather moan about the prices of Takara toys than Hasbro ones. Not that some hasbro toys are not over priced (MP Rodimus is for a start)
TrueNomadSkies
Honestly, I'd rather moan about people moaning about prices, as it's much easier to dump on em that way with minimal effort. Like, it's almost as fun as boasting about the FE Cliffjumper I bought for 6 dollars right after Christmas, of course ignoring the plethora of other shit that I paid at least Canadian retail for like the $30 bombshock or $45 TM2 Blackarachnia.
Cheetimus Prime
HAHAHA! YES!
NO, G2 Straxus is most certainly not a digibash!
YES, that is a compliment!

And yeah, some uneven paint that needs fixing is what needs to be finished up on him. I just got it together because I felt a picture was needed.

Mercy is not dispensed here! Only leopard print thongs!

Thanks for the shout out!

Now now, it's only one chain but at least if a Canadian customer wishes to taste test shopping in Australia before going on a trip, now they can.

Hey, hey! - World's largest Island, also the world's smallest continent and archipelago too... Yeah, geography!


@Cheetimus Prime: Any chance of a link to the pic dude? - would very much like to see it.

If you guys want the Beast Wars reunion check My Little Pony:FIM

My Little Pony has had Scott McNeil, Richard Newman,Blu Mankuma and Ian James Corlett's duaghter Claire plays Sweetie Belle.
Demonss
Vangelus, when you get giant.. I want you holding herc in one hand and giant in the other and shaking them both like a set of twins you didn't want..

And yes it was my youtube channel.. Thanks for the shout out..

Notably my taking apart the feet in the video was from not realizing that you could fold them entirely down and realign them without taking it apart. I simply had not messed with exgraver enough at that point nor read that it was solved by swiveling both feet down.. Oh well..

whats this botcon taking away 3rd party toys that i keep hearing about.
If i would create a transformer show vangelus is on the writing staff. i came up with tf names for you guys too Chris is Vangelus he'd wield a knife shooting bazooka and a pick axe he transformers into a tank, Aaron is AirRun he's a jet he wields photon rifle and plasma pistols, TJ would be Omegus he'd be a train who wields a turbine powered cargo train car sized nuclear fusion cannon. You're are also pretenders who go by your human names and fight the decepticon pretenders lead by nemisis prime in order to stop them from ravaging this planet as they had done to many others over there years of war.
TrueNomadSkies
@ Hursticon: Hmm, so you guys are both the largest & smallest? Hmm...



Also, I love G2 shit, those Combaticons being no exception. Well, not enough to actually buy that shit, but you know.

About dlx DOTM prime feeling small:

I literally meant the 'feel', if I recall the conversation correctly. Not the actual dimensions, just the more airy-fairy hands-in-the-air neon feel of being small or oomphy.
Vangelus
Pulling the episode down for repairs! Jiidee let me know I missed one of the many Skype-outs during WWGTW. I'd have left it if it was brief but it's like 4ish minutes long.
justamaze
Can't wait you guys give me lots of entertianment. Been catching up from the ones i've missed from way back.
Vangelus
Fixed! Should be anyway.
AxionPrime
So, I guess Bruticus will be saying 'A taste of my Sonic Pain Wave should convince you.'

What, no RID fans?

Ah, I see. I know one thing, he looks damn good with Voyager Megatron, Sentinel, Shockwave and Deluxe Starscream.

Was listening to the podcast on my route and I don't know if it's because I'm super tired or what, but I had a great idea on a different take on Transformers that hasn't been done before.

What if you did kind of a WW2 type theme? Not the earth WW2, but I mean the general feel of it in a Cybertronian setting. Don't make Optimus the leader, make him a fresh faced officer who gets field promoted to Prime when his CO dies. He begins to gather soldiers into this ragtag group that participates in a trench warfare-esque style of attrition fighting with groups of Decepticons.

Megatron wouldn't be the supreme leader yet, he'd be a high command officer overseeing operations in the area where Optimus and his team is fighting. I see him as viewing the entire field as some sort of chess game. Starscream would be a blitzkrieg commander, leading strafing runs over the field while not engaging in the politics of war while not fighting. Shockwave would head some sort of (note, please don't think I'm being insensitive or dismissive, just giving a visual idea) concentration camp where he'd experiment on all the autobot prisoners and neutrals the Decepticons have rounded up.


I envision this as very much a gritty WW2 style movie. It'd be easy to plug certain characters into the sort of stereotypical roles one attributes to war movies of that era. For instance Grimlock could be the tired, worn seargent whose seen too much and is now just as brutal and merciless as the enemies he fights.

MechanovaKing

Shut up, dude.

The more y'all want to talk and put out quality podcast material, the more I have to listen to at work. I'm very grateful for lengthy podcasts.
col
I'm all about getting as much content out of the podcast as possible. I have no problem with the length of this episode, and I bet the majority appreciate it as well.
Demonss
I love the lenghtly podcast because I work 10 hours a day.. so having stuff to listen to that is NOT the same songs on the radio for as much of my day as I can is ALWAYS appreciated..
TrueNomadSkies
Exactly. If anything, I'm astonished that these guys can even devote 4 hours to this shit like they do at all, let alone on a continual basis that appears to be in one or close sittings AND where there's really no filler among it.

For sure..
And Vangelus is more than kind in putting chapter marks in place so one can choose to skip stuff if they please.

p.s. another podcast I listen to ROUTINELY goes over 4 hours..

I knew it was only a matter of time till one of these popped up after 187.
TrueNomadSkies
Well see, I don't even get why someone would complain about that unless they didn't like the podcast, in which they wouldn't even be listening to the show to begin with.

Like, I can understand people having an issue with long books or movies because there's a higher level of attention that needs to be devoted (although even then I'd question whether or not the length is really to blame), but for shit like this you just click play & enjoy it. You can even be doing other shit in the mean time (this is one of the reasons I'm endlessly a fan of radio/podcast type deals over videos), so the fact that he's complaining about it being too long baffles me greatly.

It'd probably be cool if they were Dinobots, though.

My copy has the unedited Skype-out in tact. I feel special.
