    I'd slept through most of it, so it didn't occur to me to bring it up. I think you guys were very sane!

    THANK YOUUUU

    It was bothering me so much during the recording that I'd forgotten the name. ;_;

    Sorry about not flooding your box full of gold glitter, Vangelus. However, I'm pretty sure it would have pushed the box into the Canada Mail Purgatory,

    Great podcast as always everyone.
    I agree that "borrowing" engineering cues from official Hasbro transformers is a bit cheap but Presser still looks great to me. I would also like to hear your opinion on the IGear Mini Warriors that looks like they went under a lot of peoples radars.

    Just wondering: I hear you guys being so disappointed in iGear for going from their Ratchet/Ironhide molds to that of Presser...

    Whilst it is clear that Presser is borrowing Warpath's engineering, do you guy's not see that the iGear's Ironhide/Ratchet mold is a mating between the front-end engineering of the Classicsverse Inferno/Grapple mold and the back-end engineering of the Classicsverse Prowl/Silverstreak/Smokescreen mold? - Or do you guys not buy into that argument? :confused: 

    Great show again though guys and I'm looking forward to the upcoming Primetime! :cool: 

    @Omegas: Congratulations on that Starsaber man, very drool-worthy and a great review. :thumb 
    @Vangelus: I hate you... Because I now own Neo-Getter 1, Getter Dragon & Getter Go all thanks to your reviews and have since been bitten by the Revoltech bug. :D

    Good podcast, I especially enjoy Vangelus's impression of Duke Nukem...hiliarious. Alot of hauls some good some that I didn't know about on WWGTW, but still awesome.

    I like Presser's design he looks like Impactor, but I do see the Generations Warpath in there. Still he looks sweet.

    Was just listening to the part of the podcast where yall are talking bout Shockwave's Mechtech gun. Something that looks kool for me, and I desperatly would love to see a custom Galvatron like this, is take Shockwave's gun, and if you take the bottom elbow joint closest to Dotm Megatron's hand, and fold it straight, then plug the gun in, it will actually go all the way down, and plug in solid, it kinda hugs the wheel on his arm to sit flush, and you can use the other joint on the arm as an elbow joint. You don't get as much poseability, but to me it looks amazing. Plus if you take Shockwave's sword and plug in the other arm, and put the cloak on, to me, its just plain awesomesauce! lol


    Edit:

    Also the gun also fits on top of the tank in vehicle mode, and stays pretty well. You can also take the sword and plug into the side of the cab, and it gives it a crazy look. Makes me wish i had another sword just to put on the otherside of the truck.

    Also, funnily enough Shockwave's cannon fits PERFECTLY on DOTM Laserbeak's cockpit thing. And under!

    I'd requote my favorite line from the podcast, but I'm pretty sure bad things will happen if I do. It's obvious which one it was, so I'll just let the body fluids do the talkin'.

    I'm glad to hear that the Baan Garn is alright though. My first experience with anything CMs was their Sunrise Mecha Action line GaoFighGar toy, and that thing was an overpriced piece of junk, I have their DX Star GaoGaiGar 2.0, and I was weary about it at first, but I ended up loving it...plus I got it for a VERY good price. I might buy it come Christmas, assuming it'll still be there for that price.

    oh i remember:

    I am one of the most outspoken opponents of Igear, and i literally cheered on igear for making ironhide and ratchet. i want igear to go in the direction of making their own stuff and not making glorified Knockoffs

    Presser is a hard one for me, he borrows from warpath, which i don't like, but it is impactor, one of my most favorite characters so i got to buy it.....it is hard

    their huffer they are making though, aces, will buy

    If you tagged the file with the words "Scarlett Johansson" and "head", a whole new world of listeners would open up.

    Good show guys. :D

    I'm glad that Laserbeak found a home, he seemed to like his Nerf fortress though.

    Oh, Holy Macral! I am glad I listened to this tonight, I totally forgot about soul-eating Bumblebee, thanks for the reminder!

    oh if you have both Skyhammer and Thunderhead and you want a little something extra for Thunderhead use Skyhammer's weapon in the tank mode, the colors are a bit off, well hell they are off for Skyhammer too.. but anyway It adds a good amount of bulk to the tank and Mech mode, and of course adds two side ports.

    Just want to chime in on the "Stunticon combiner set". I am of the mind that it goes against the fictional intention, so I wont be buying it unless it somehow comes out affordable, mind blowingly good, and DJW approves it.

    But has it really been "announced"? If it was announced we would at least know who was making it, All we have s a random silhouette of a drawing. I'm just thinking with all the dumb "combiner speculation that went on and on and on in the pre-botcon boxset discussion threads of people being both pissed that they wouldn't combine (really?) and people 100% positive they were definitely going to combine...

    If I was a sadistic fellow (i'm not) I would totally mockup a quick 3rd party "teaser" of a motormaster trailer and let it loose to troll the hell out the "f*cking nerds."

    Unless this gets announced by a established group or pictures of physical objects show up, I wouldn't be surprised that it doesn't exist. Same with the power-master prime teaser.

    "fourteen years in the making" "it should have been two more"

    Those are my favorite quotes. What is the triceratops can transformer that was mentioned?
