      what exclusive figure you expect to see this year in San diego comic con? A tripticon with extra crome? or what wild guess you would like to see ?

      Hey Vangelus, I'm going to be in Tokyo next week. Can you recommend any good spots to find new/vintage transformers?

      Hello, Merry Podcasters. With the release of Masterpiece Inferno and Grapple it got me thinking. We know Takara isn't shy about reusing mold for repaints,like g2 or Ehobby. Also Generations Inferno was used for Grappel and Artfire, but the former TFCC also used the mold for Pyro/spark from Euro G1/G2. What if Takara were to use a similar idea for a masterpiece Pyro? I would like to hear your thoughts and thank you.

      Listener Question: Got an email from Animeexpress that MP Megatron is in stock and ready to ship out was awesome as I did not expect it to come in till late April. I saw that a lot of US buyers have received emails stating that they will have their boxes opened and an orange plug installed on the barrel.Do you think this MP was prices to be very high because they know that it will never be sold in the US market?

      Are there any key moments in our past media you can think of that would've played out differently today? In the G1 cartoon's return of Optimus Prime, he said he "had no plan" because he didn't have the matrix. Compared to some of today's cartoons, noted for their deeper characters and plots, there would've been exploring if the matrix made the prime or vice versa.

        Like, the entire Season 3 Rodimus Prime storyline

        Multiple episodes made it rife with potential that got barely scratched before Return of Optimus Prime nullified the entire endeavor

      Headmaster Don (HMRC4EVR) here! Quick listener question. Do you think it's disappointing Takara hasn't revisited Yuusha using CW/Titans Returns lines? We'll never see Brave like in the 90's, but Takara could homage characters using TF figures (Ultra Magnus/Exkaiser, Astrotrain/Da-Garn X, Liokaiser set as GaoGaiGar etc) Not perfect matches, but would be something different & another use for molds. Thanks!

      Greetings, Podcasticons! Have any of you ever liked a toy due to a specific way it failed to match the source material? For example, since Nautica was introduced, I've longed for a toy of Milne's design. That wish is yet ungranted. But I find TR Nautica works extremely well if I think of it as the 1987 G1 Nautica that never was. Have any of you felt similarly about a figure? Looking forward too the discussion.

      Got a listener question for even team: with masterpiece megatron looming on the horizon, I find myself torn. Do I keep the DX9 enhanced leader Megs as my stand in, or take the plunge for fear of regretting it later? I'm happy with what I have, but the MP looks really nice as well. Hopefully at least one of you guys have handled said leader toy with one of the upgrade kits.

      Just one question for you guys today, Vangelus has mentioned that he wishes the Titans Return advertisement animation would be turned into a series. He has also mentioned that he also like the Beast Machines Dinobots and would have liked to have seen them show up on the series. So I was wondering what are some of your favorite toy only/advertisement continuities?

      Hi, Vangelus and podcast crew!
      Wondering just as a layman base consumer how the online toy review scene has impacted mass market retailers and companies. I know 3rd party companies sometimes send you guys stuff to review early; is there like a process to this, or does review "job" recognition just something that happened as the internet hive mind grew from mid-2008 onwards?
      Thanks for answering whenever you do!

      Hello vangelus and crew!. Really love your podcast. I listen to it every time i do stuff. Also, i have a few questions to ask. 1. What are your thoughts about knock off toys being in higher quality than hasbro in terms of paint and modifications?2. What are your prefered robot silhouettes? Do you have a specific preference to your bot's size or bulk?

      Looking forward to hearing your answers,
      More power to you guys!

      Hello podcast team. What your stance is on a toy owning its accessories? A while back I got Planet X's Neptune; didn't like him much, loved his mech-tenderizing hammers. Later I got Triton; didn't like him much, loved his thruster/cannons. Since then, the other Dinobots use their gear. Do you prefer to keep a toy's accessories for itself or play the open arsenal game?

      Hey Vangelus and crew, with the success of Combiner Wars and Titan Masters and the idea that follow-up lines need a line wide gimmick, what do you believe the odds are that any future lines will use Micromaster combiners? I think it would be a fun gimmick to combine the vehicle modes and a nice follow-up to the Prime Wars trilogy, if not part three of the trilogy. Thanks for any answers provided.

      Hey Vangelus, when you are doing reviews for Titans Return?

      Hi Vangelus,

      All of the videos posted on the Transformers Video Discussion board are coming up as black rectangles. It's not just my new ones, it goes all the way back to my first post. I've noticed that others in this board are experiencing the same thing.

      Hello Vangelus & Crew! As any Transformer collector probably knows, Hasbro has said that Combiner Wars and now Titans Return are part of a toyline trilogy. Given that, I'd like to get your thoughts on what the 3rd part of the trilogy would be? Are we looking at Pretenders? or Action Masters? I personally would prefer something new along the lines of Combiner BEASTS....so we can finish off the classic Combiner lineup...we need Abominus, Predaking, Piranacon and Monstructor. Plus it would be great to get new Combiners....like a Dinobot or Insecticon combiner? What are your thoughts?

      Hello again! As i mentioned last time i asked a question, i am rather new to this great big thing called a fandom. And with being new comes beginner issues. I personally don't have anyone who can give me an answer(mostly because none are nerds) to this question so I thought I'd bring it here. Two years ago i went to my first ever con and went to a panel featuring several star wars EU writers. I got in line to ask a question and like most newbs became a blubbing fool when i approached the mic. Now at first I thought i was kinda starstruck, but later i was able to talk with one author alone for a while and had no problem. Next con it was the same. Ask a question=blubbering fool. talk one on one= ok. How do i get over this and what is causing it? its rather embarrassing. Thanks. Am i supposed to end with a click?
