    Enjoyable episode as always, gentlemen.

    And Seth? I just got the Marvel Universe two-packs of Power Man/Iron Fist and Spidey/Captain Britain as well. I echo your sentiments regarding the paint apps on the good Captain. Despite the complexity of them, they're nice, crisp, and clean. I absolutely love this figure, and am looking forward to standing him with the other 3 Captains I've got at home on the shelf.

    I agree as well that it would have been nice for Rocket to have some kind of arm articulation, but disagree about the gun that came with him. It's far too small, and not nearly worthy of his majesty. He needs something... more... shall we say...?

    regarding those toys awards, is the entry by franchise or concept?
    is Transformers representing, or meaning to, all transforming robot toys?
    only hasbro - takara branded transformers? ALL robot toys??

    I was a bit confused, sorry @-e

    In my limited knowledge and lack of research, I think the entries are a mixture of both.

    Ahhh Gobots. If you like the Gobots toys, you should try out some of the Machine Robo Rescue toyline. Pretty solid purchases, if you can find them.

    Yup! And the original toy said "Psychoroid" on the sticker instead of "FUTURE MACHINE." Psychoroid was cooler. :D

    ...Psycho
    ...Psycho-Gun?
    Psychoroid!

    That's right, that toy was originally made as a
    tie-in/homage to the Space Adventure Cobra
    psychoroid, which is Cobra's ride in the anime
    (dunno about the manga)

    yeah, it didn't transform in the series, so
    that was bandai's own little dash of toy-sugar
    when it was released on the machine robo
    scale-robo DX subline.

    pretty cool toy :3

    I have to say it was cool to listen about the differences between words like scapler, troop-building, and etc. from that listener voicemail and that listener question about selling parts of a collection for new things, and to me kinda hit home because I'm the same way as other people are and that was cool to get points of view about that as well. So thanks guys for this podcast. Even though I gotta say it all the time like a broken record.
