    Shut up, dude.

    The more y'all want to talk and put out quality podcast material, the more I have to listen to at work. I'm very grateful for lengthy podcasts.

    I'm all about getting as much content out of the podcast as possible. I have no problem with the length of this episode, and I bet the majority appreciate it as well.

    Exactly. If anything, I'm astonished that these guys can even devote 4 hours to this shit like they do at all, let alone on a continual basis that appears to be in one or close sittings AND where there's really no filler among it.

    For sure..
    And Vangelus is more than kind in putting chapter marks in place so one can choose to skip stuff if they please.

    p.s. another podcast I listen to ROUTINELY goes over 4 hours..

    Well see, I don't even get why someone would complain about that unless they didn't like the podcast, in which they wouldn't even be listening to the show to begin with.

    Like, I can understand people having an issue with long books or movies because there's a higher level of attention that needs to be devoted (although even then I'd question whether or not the length is really to blame), but for shit like this you just click play & enjoy it. You can even be doing other shit in the mean time (this is one of the reasons I'm endlessly a fan of radio/podcast type deals over videos), so the fact that he's complaining about it being too long baffles me greatly.

    It'd probably be cool if they were Dinobots, though.

    My copy has the unedited Skype-out in tact. I feel special.

    I, too, just got thrown into the Star Wars Lego deep end. Two great kits to pick up for your review would be the "Bounty Hunter Assault Ship" or the "Geonosion starfighter". The source material doesn't even matter, these are just two damn nice ships, especially the starfighter, that thing is pure sex. Just imagine every shape Lego isn't supposed to be, mashed together. That's the starfighter.

    I got both of mine on sale pretty cheap as well!

    I think he's listed as "Decepticon Beacon" there.

    Drat. Once again referred to as 'someone' on the podcast... Touch luck, I guess.

    Anyway, 6 Eradicons is insane. Maybe we can get a picture of all of them?

    And good to hear Aaron is a Swindlite. :thumb

    I saw that the other day when I back-ordered a FE Bulkhead. It's like they were trying to say Vehicon really fast :lol .

    I just thought it was either a translation issue (these happen often because things that resemble real words in one language often get literally translated before names are official & end up staying that way on certain documentation) or playfully even a way of keeping the riff raff away, but that works too, especially if yelled in stereotypically thick (and ultimately inaccurately spat) accents.

    Beacon's a cool name for a TFer, though.

    So I am assuming this is it:

    AM-14 Decepticon Beacon
    Code: TKT45258 Series: Transformers Prime

    It says its on 'order stop'

    Does this mean they are not getting anymore or thats their back order?

    I really hope they get more cause I want to make this one the 'vehicon commander' and all the PRID ones the army cause they'll be way cheaper!

    EDIT: Found this one:

    First Edition Decepticon Beacon
    Code: TKT43775 Series: Transformers Prime

    looks like its discontinued, so much for that!

    Another great episode, I really enjoyed the Hall of Fame talk. I fully support bringing Daniel Riordan to a future Botcon :) . Also, Aaron's Lego talk has me wanting to buy a new building block set myself.
