Why do I feel another STEAK argument coming on?.....

Oh and Magnus has "appeared" as the False Optimus Prime in the Orion Pax episodes

BLOWTORCH STEAK trumps all steaks. There is no argument to be had.

Hmmm, that picture looks VERY familiar.

Also, IIRC the blue-haired dude is supposed to be Clouder.

If someone were actually underhandedly trading in wave 1 Generations figs for wave 1 FOC toys, I'd say that in the end they pretty much got what they deserve.


Cause they're not as good toys.

I can also confirm that holy chuck owns

I wouldn't be too worried about the guy returning one thing for another, as long as they are legitimately the same DCPI. It's one Deluxe for another, and I sometimes wish I could pick up a figure from a few years back. An extra Wreck Gar or Thunderwing taking the place of a FOC Prime won't be a shelf warmer at Target. As long as he's not tampering with the product, or swapping things with different values, he's not commiting fraud.

I've seen much worse at one of my local stores. There is some guy who lives near me who has a scam set up where he buys a Leader class toy at Walmart for $40, and at the same time buys a clearance toy at Target for maybe $7. He then scans the UPC off the Leader, prints it onto a sticker, and sticks the fake UPC on the clearance toy. He returns the clearance toy with the leader's receipt, and gets his $40 back! Then Walmart sticks the clearance toy on the shelf, where it rings up for $40! He uses Target exclusives, because that way if Walmart peels off the sticker the REAL UPC won't come up as anything, it's not in their computer!

OH MY GOD!
Get the hell out of my head.
While listening to the previous episode, I thought it ended abruptly, and thought for a sec it was a false ending.
I was going to suggest to the crew to have a false outro, outro and all, just to "duhfuq" the listener-ship. And you did it. You fucking did it. Exactly what I thought, 2 days ago. God. Damn.

I think aksmith is literally a mad scientist. I will forever imagine him as Wilson. Even though I've seen his face, I'm sure his next door neighbor has only seen his eyes poking up over the fence as he talks to him about weird obscure science facts.

You did miss an Animated third party product. Impossible Toys did that set of a Sari, Isaac and Fanzone figures.

Honestly though, I don't think the lack of third party Animated stuff is because people can't make toys in that style. It's because they don't want to, or don't think people would buy them. The majority of third party stuff is Classic+ (or CHUGRY, Classic, Henkei, Universe, Generations, Reveal the sheild and Yellow box), because that's what fans want. There is a smattering of ACCESSORIES for movie, Prime, Animated and Beast Wars, but no stand alone figures for those settings. Just about every stand alone figure is CHUGRY style, because that's what sells.

BTW - Just kidding with the "CHUGRY". I had to use it. hehehe

Vangelus, the mechanical chain base walls and floor plates of sets 1-3 and sets 4-6 are different. Sets 4-6 are supposed to work perpendicular to sets 1-3.

Here's mine!

Glad to see the Steak process worked out, I just want to make note of:
"The worst thing that happens is I burn 50 dollars worth of steak and have to go get food elsewhere."
No, the worse that could happen is propane explosions, grease fires, the entire house going up, setting the whole neighborhood ablaze, causing a catastrophic wildfire that kills the family of some particle physicist working at the Large Hadron Collider, who, driven mad with grief and hatred of humanity (and science gone wrong, ironically), engineers a new big bang leading to Total Event Collapse.

I always like to keep a mental railroad between any potential action of my own and Total Event Collapse.
Aaron
Well, within 2 steps for me in the kitchen I have a fire extinguisher and an open container of flour. If ever I'm working with grease that may ignite I keep a cover nearby as well. The point of (semi)mad science is to be prepared for all outcomes and cover them.

And much more than my house burning down, I don't know if I care so much. If the world ends then I'm not around to care.

For an animated add on Id like to see new feet, forearms and a head for Swoop to turn him into Alpha Trion. Maybe some wing covers to make them a bit more regal. Hed probably need a sticker sheet to add some red to a few key locations too. It would ruin the transformation but Alpha Trion never transforms anyway so it shouldnt be a problem.

That's not Ichabod... They made a cleaner clone of him...

Good episode. Glad to see steaks is a WTF@TFW thing.

When talking add-on kits I'm surprised Vangelus didn't mention Longarm Prime's office.

I never realized how much Ichabod sounds like Omegus until listening to this episode!

Wrapping up listening to this episode and the one Animated add-on kit I would love to see is a Roadbuster conversion kit for the Roadbuster deco Ultra Magnus. I imagine it to come with a new head and one or 2 big guns. The size and obviously the color scheme on that figure are perfect for the character. I remember talking to Venksta who said he had considered it back in 2011 but I suspect that's no longer going to happen.

I was just listening to the listener question from panzerjedi and I think if you've got an older figure that's still sealed, take it and donate it to Toys for Tots instead.
