Regarding Lamborghini, they are owned by Audi who is part of Volkswagen.

RE: Thundertron
I'm loving all the different mods people are doing to the weapons. I recommend people check out the Thundertron feedback thread as well as the Radicons forum. The Parrot mod is probably my current favorite.
Anti Spark
Very annoyed!

I can't find those botshot commercials.

Nevermind Found it.

The thing that freaks me out about Plasma is that when they give you your blood back, it's not warmed up. So when it hits your veins it's cold (okay, not cold, but not body temp). I'm already kinda freaked out by needles, but I can't get past the cold blood part. this info came from several friends who have done it, and one was a nurse.

Tried to donate plasma once and the lady looked at my tattoo sleeve and just said, "no"

Here are some pictures of that larger-than-voyager Predaking.

I'm hoping that he comes out with the best details of the three molds we've seen so far.

edit: Oh sorry, probably should have used pictures from TFW's gallery, but these were the ones I had in my Prime Predacons folder.

I beg for future podcast please do not bring up blood donation and anything like a medical procedure like that, I am very squemish and hearing the mention of all that stuff made me want to puke

Its juts a request, not angry or anything, but I litreally was yelling at my computer for Aaron to shut up so I wouldn't have to hear anymore of it

Yay, my second anonymous shout-out in WTF@TFW! My first one was way back when Alternity Skywarp's bio got translated, and I suggested the "Xeno-Dimensional Recognition Filter" was his ability to recognize homages in other toylines, including the specific example of Cybertron Evac's Springer repaint.
Pyro
The intermission made me smile. I love the Atlas Park music.
Cybermnky
When I think of combiners it always comes back to this comic for me:

I give blood every couple months, and I don't get a dime for it. I just get a cookie and an 8 ounch ourange joice. Where are people getting money for it?

Oh, maybe I missed it, but has anyone on the podcast gotten the Lego Creator Power Mech? It's the Lego set that looks a LITTLE like a big green Autobot we all know.

It is plasma donation, not whole blood, that you an get paid for locally.

And wait for 230.

Never seen one. All we have around here in Michigan is the Red Cross, who take blood for free.

The picture is Black Blood of the Earth? Ooh this is gonna be good.

I love how google mangled that voice recording.

What Lynn's would bakery
What the limbs would be.

I actually thought about this one. Chest is Rodimus, arms are Skyblast and Skywarp, legs are Ultra Magnus and Big O. Name? Orodruin's combiner of kicking-your-lilly-ass.
ZeroEdge
Hey Vangleus, I got a crap of extra Beam sabre blades laying around. Tell me what kind you want and I can just give you a pair if you're interested

Jarl
If we're answering listener questions, I'd have Powerglide as the torso, one arm is Rodimus, one arm is Ironhide, and the legs are Inferno and Ratchet. A nice hot combiner, sorta predaking colors. Call him, aaaaahhhhm... Infernus Maximus. Yeah!
SideswipePrime
I just watched that Kre-O commercial, and yeah...poor Megatron, and Omegus can't be this podcast's version of Ichab0d.
Demonss
I agree with the sentiments on the likelyhood of Sideswipe vs soundwave coming to the US.

I hope that sideswipe makes it to the US, but I don't have high hopes on the licensing issues.
guard convoy
Soundwave is a garuntee for US release, there is no way they won't bring him over

Its sideswipe that has the issue, and that is because of liscensing issues
PurdueAV2003
I don't think Hasbro getting the Lambo license will be has hard as people think. There are already plenty of Lambo licensed toys out there. As for the whole Lambo is owned by Audi is owned by VW, I don't think that will affect this release either. Audi and VW have both agreed to let Lambo do their own thing, and so far, it has worked for them. If Lambo licensed the Countach design to Hasbro, I don't think either owner would jump in to stop it. Still, I agree that we will see Soundwave hit the US shelves well before we would see Sideswipe.

On a side note, I had an idea for a combiner team inspired by the Catholic Church. After I found out the Pope is now on twitter using the name @pontifex, I thought that would be a great name for the Dinobot combiner. Give him a giant Pope hat like the PCC Dino-pope and have him go around screaming, "Pontifex smash!".
Ace Convoy
...Ok...

VW owns. Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley, Ducati, Porsche, Bugatti, Seat, and Scania.
Just Fyi... back to my essay

Thanks for talking through the night with me, I'm almost done

P.S. Vw did have a stake in Suzuki, but they screwed it up and now Suzuki is leaving the Us market.
Rigas
My Aldis don't have vehicons ;/ or toys for that matter.

I actually got the giant Requiem Blaster minicons, they seem to pretty sturdy.
Scaleface
There was a theory that the Kre-o Autobots are evil. The very first commercial for kre-o said that most of the transformers were here to destroy us, but some want to save us.... well most Kre-o sets are Autobots, so by implication kre-o Autobits are evil.

Yes there is. No matter what it is, someone, somewhere, will find something on it to bitch about.

Fair point

The Gobots talk got me thinking, I wonder how long it'll be before we start seeing Gobots become a thing in 3rd party toys? Like full on recreations of Gobot characters with modern egineering.

I know the first thought is there isn't a market for it like with Transformers, but at the same time I can't help but think that something like a Cykill with modern 3rd party design and engineering wouldn't be kind of interesting.

I know it's been said before, but I think it's funny enough to warrant it being said again...
Volkswagen is worried about their products being associated with war-themed franchises? The company was founded by the Nazi Party. The damage is done

I need to go look those up, cuz that sword has potential, but the gimmick ruins it. I wonder if test markets are showing kids really enjoy Mech-Tech still. hopefully it dies off soon and we get integrated weapons, or solid weapons that resemble the show models.

really? I never had a problem back when I did it, but i also don't have sleeves. I know they won't let you do it if you've had a tattoo in the last 6 months though. bad thing about selling plasma if you do it enough, it'll start leaving a track mark, cuz those needles are huge. I've thought about doing it occasionally for more toys, but I don't think i'd want to deal with the hassle (and sketchyness of everyone else who's there)

private companies buy plasma so they can do research with it, i think.



The autoroller toys are fun, i've got all 4 Korean Beast releases, but they're probably going into my sell pile soon because they've been in a plastic storage container for the better part of their time in my collection.

and all of this talk about MP Sideswipe is making me want to just order him immediately, instead of the hope that we might get a US release. I think i'm getting Masterpiece Prime for Christmas, so i'll wait until afterwards to see, then maybe order him.

there was something else i wanted to comment on as well, and now i can't remember... blast. oh well.

That's actually exactly why. The Germans are really sensitive about the whole Nazi thing. So anything that has to do with war they really try and shy away from.

I remember reading somewhere that a German man actually attacked a scupter of Hitler in the history exhibit at Madame Tussauds wax museum.

There was that Leader-1 replacement head for Classic Starscream.

Yeah, but that was more or less a bonus item that came with a Starscream upgrade kit.

I'm taking like full on new figures.

Prime Breakdown is a different beast, this is soundwave, one of the most iconic transformers of all time, there's no way hasbro won't bring it over, everyone remembers soundtape!

If prime's trailer can get released at retail, I have no doubt we will see soundwave
Wingnut
That'll teach me to send a box before listening to the latest podcast... Oh well...
Scaleface
I simply do not understand the concept of "they don't make cassettes any more, so we can't release a robot tape player" logic.

1. They don't make biplanes either. We got movie Ransack. Heck, they don't make any 1970s cars either, but that doesn't stop G1 from getting reissued.
2. They DO MAKE CASSETTE PLAYERS and you can buy them in any department or electronics store.

Cars and planes, regardless of the era, are infinitely more attention grabbing, and marketable, than a box.
Scaleface
Cars are a box with wheels. Cassettes plays are boxes with buttons.

Worse comes to worse make it a triple changer with a lightpost mode.

Remember when Sonicron was released? Some video reviewers though it was a video camera!

229 is almost done. Sorry for the delay, a combination of me being very sick for a week, plus 229's audio having some technical issues.
