    regarding the issues of botcon gigatron working as a Last stand of the wreckers surviving villain; The face not being battle damaged on the skeletal rebuild can make sense to me because of overlords obsession with his looks, making those repairs a priority when he has been broken down in mass to half his size as the giga tank. Entirely mirrored by Optimus Primes comment on a captured super megatron
    "New Body, but the face never changes. Never underestimate the vanity of tyrants." (chaos theory trade paperback page 72)

    Prime hot shot is an homage to hot shots cybertron/galaxy force colorscheme. While the head seems to be based on the armada goggle feature.

    I think that Armada TidalWave would be a perfect mold for Gigatron/Overlord, you can even use the minicon like a "power master".

    I listened to your podcast in an Indian buffet restaurant today, to drown out the noise of a middle-aged woman loudly enjoying her meal. If anybody ever told you guys you were more entertaining than an obnoxious 50-year-old lady mimicking that played-out scene from When Harry Met Sally, they were right.

    Good show, though, and nice analyses. However, if any of you ever start to loudly enjoy Indian food on this podcast, you will lose a fan forever.

    Drinking game for the number of times Vangelus says something along the lines of "cheapening our hobby"?

    D-Style Gaogaigar is freaking awesome. I've already decided I must get King J-Der, and I hope to god they keep doing more transforming GGG kits.

    Protoman was misinformed in regards to FansToys and what FT-01 actually is. FT-01 was actually the Dalianjj MP-01 Trailer (which came before the "official" trailer that came with MP-04), Blaster will be FT-03.

    It was specifically stated in this thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...on/434916-prototype-g1-cartoon-soundwave.html

    Here is the trailer in question:

    There's a fan-fic for that

    "CUPCAKES"
    Text
    Equestria Daily: Story: Cupcakes
    Audio Book
    Cupcakes MLP:FIM FanFic Reading Part 1 - YouTube

    GRIMDARK AS F*&(

    Oh and people Stop with the MY LITTLE PONY refs on the questions, these guys are not Bronies, they do not get BRONY REFS.

    They not going to know who DJ-PON3, Derpy, Molestia, Woona, Berry Punch, Lyra, or Bon-Bon are. (Unless they really good at acting they don't)

    Heck my next Listener Question is the Last Time I'm going to bring it up, and I'll never bring up MLP:FIM again.

    I had no idea that there was a Heroman figure already. This is something I'm going to have to look into.

    Man...Between this and the Prime line on the horizon, it's a terrible time to be broke.

    Once again, the episode's data marks it as being made in 2005, making it invisible to my mp3 player.

    Edit: Somehow, this issue corrected itself instantly after I made this post. Never mind.

    Nuts.

    I'd never heard of this thing before it was brought up in that listener question, and just... woah. My brain was goo by the time you'd finished answering that question.
