    Regarding pictures, why don't you just include them in the first post of the thread? :)

    M4A.

    Edit: Wait, in the listener question section Vangelus mentions the images not being able to change without a new chapter marking, yet this is exactly what happened with the images I was talking about. So, I'm guessing that the image changes I mentioned were unintentional.

    I just figured it out the other day. Bottom left of the iTunes window, there's the plus sign, random, repeat and another button that's a box with a triangle in it. click that, it makes a small window with the pictures. then, if you click on the picture in that window, it'll make it a separate window, which you can then change the size of. I set mine nice and big, so that when i hit my expose (i'm on mac) i can see the picture clearly amongst all my other open windows.

    I personally think none of you guys have given a hard enough review on Airachnid.

    I'll wait for Omegus or Seth to get her and rip her to shreds...

    I'm also very happy to see that Kre-o is getting some blind packed kreons. Something I would like to see (probably not possible but still) are a Gigatank and Megajet in blind packs that could combine into Overlord! Again, probably not possible but that would be awesome to see!

    So podcast guys.. You seem super pumped about the voyager Soundwave tapes. I feel I should show you guys these:

    (Sorry for the crappy pictures.)

    These guys are available for sale via Shapeways. They come unpainted and are a little expensive for their size but they are SUPER poseable and turn into drives that fit inside his chest. I HIGHLY recommend them. Worst case, get someone else to paint them for you.

    What do I have to do now to Kobayashi-san?!

    Anyhow here, the CG prototype for Masterpiece Galvatron (Well not really, but enjoy)

    -----------------------------------------------

    As for the femme-bot question

    Fictionally the explaination for females in Transformers boils down the to the Original 13, according to Aaron Archer at Botcon 2010, the 13 make up for 1/13th of each type of Transformer and THUS Solus Prime makes up for the femme-bots and why they are so limited (also why they exist).

    Arcee while not the first of the female Transformers, that going to Elita-1 and her crew (some like to count Nightbird for some reason in that), she was part of the 1986 Movie, and for the longest time during those tender years from the 90s into the 2000s, before DVD releases and the ease of Youtube, the easiest way to get your G1 fix was to go to the local video store and rent a VHS of the 1986 movie which was more accessable then the FHS G1 Season 1 episodes issued by Marvel Productions. For many (be it ignorant), Arcee was "their" first female Transformer, and being first puts her in a special place in many people's hearts.

    Not to mention the Transformers The Movie 1986 is a lot more easier to sit down and watch almost 30 years later instead of any Season 1 episode......... so she was already in good company.

    .....aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I'm outta here.

    I was at the Con, and from the looks of Thundertron, the robot arms, which become the front upper arms of the beast mode is seperate from what becomes the front lower arms in beast mode, that is attached to his back in some way. (On vacation right now so i have no way to post any pics, I'll update with pics)

    And the foot on the peg leg just pegs on the bottom of it.

    And honestly wouldn't want you guys to change the format of the show to just video, because I can do more while listening to the audio version, I just get too busy to sit at my desk for hours at a time for a video. But thats not to say I don't love the long podcasts you guys do, I really do! That just means more transformery goodness for my ears.

    And about not getting to the questions fast, its cool you guys, don't stress, we shall hear the eventualy.

    Why won't I use the m4a? Well that would require use of an Apple product. Which I won't on principle.

    I will remain as champion of the mp3 smalltimers till the day I die. I listen to Wutfuw on my PC, typically with wireless headphones, as I don't own one of those intelligent phones or even an MP3 player. At least half the time, I'm sitting in front of the computer when I listen, but not always. The pictures are wasted on me. Chapter marks don't matter either when I'm not in front of the keyboard. I've also found from the few times that I've tried to high-class it up with the m4a that doing anything but pressing play and letting the podcast play uninterrupted messes with the display of images anyway. They don't change as the chapter marks do or if I minimize the window and pop it up again, I get no image at all. That could be an issue specific to my PC, I'll admit. Oh, and in order to download the m4a, since again I don't bother with iTunes, that means an extra click to get it from that RSS page. Who wants to do that?!

    Sorry that you guys do a bunch of extra stuff that I never actually need from you!

    No it wouldn't. They work in VLC and MPC.

    Funny that you guys mention codes on blind pack figures, the only blind pack figures I know of from Hasbro are the My Little Pony ones, and the first wave had a normal number (example Twilight Sparkle's code is 1, while Rarity's is 4) but the newer waves if I remember correctly, have like 5 or 6 number codes, so if those are any indication, then there is a good chance that these kreon blind packs will have codes

    Show how you can download it without itunes (an Apple porduct)? And I'd never listen to it that way, I only listen on my MP3 player.

    You click on the RSS link in Vangelus's post. Then you right click on the podcast link. "Save as..." Pick a folder to save it in and you're done.

    I listen to WTF@TFW in whatever format it is via itunes. Listen to it on my mp3 player and yea.

    On another note: Happy 4 years of podcasting! I've been listening since episode 100, which was just before botcon 2010, so just about 2 years of listening here. wow.
