    It is. It's the one I'll be returning to.

    God, I can't wait till next year. I want to go back to TFCon, like now.

    This was one of the best shows yet, guys. I'm gonna' need you to kidnap 10-12 pedestrians for every recording now. Each.

    It's too bad Aaron isn't into Mega Bloks Halo, the Mega headquarters is in Canada thus they get much better distribution.

    It is a thing that I've just never gotten into. While I know that Lego is less adverse now to making specialty bricks, I really feel like it is a building block cheat when 2/3rds of your build is custom pieces that won't work in any other build.

    While I am fine with 3rd party Transformers, Gobots, and whatever similar transforming robots, for whatever reason, Mega Bloks and KREO instill an irrational adverse reaction in me. There is no rational, logical reason behind this. This is something primal beyond my control.

    That's the Lego in your blood.

    It's a good thing.

    Yeah, and it helps that I have zero interest in WoW these days and I actively dislike Halo, so that doesn't give me much incentive to buy Mega Bloks. Also, I have this crazy thing where I don't like mixing Mega Bloks and KRE-O with Lego, even though they're compatible. I don't believe they should mix. Does that make me racist towards Mega Bloks?

    Not so much racist, but blood purist!

    Wait, that's still racist isn't it? DAMMIT!


    It is weird too, because I rarely take sets apart after I've built them to do other things with the bricks, but I like the chance that it COULD happen. Not just "Build a Frame, then drop on the body"

    Plus it doesn't make the initial build very satisfying. Rather boring actually. It's fun during a build to see how inventive they get using specific Lego pieces, but with Mega Bloks and Kreo specialty pieces it's all kind of boring as you build it IMO.

    I'm sorry, what were you saying? I was just over here playing with my foot-wide brick of an alien death-tank that only cost me about thirty bucks, including beast wars level poseable mans.

    Kidding! I'm a bock hippie-it's all just bricks to me.

    Still no WTF 211? Must be the end of the podcast.

    You had a good run, boys. Farewell.

    EDIT: I'm an idiot. IGNORE ME.

    Sorry. I'll leave the doom-and-gloom to someone more gullible than myself.
