    Great acronym discussion. I would definitely like "CHUG" killed. Quickly. PAINFULLY.

    I would like to make a suggestion: I'd love to see (or uh, hear) you guys do a weekly topic on top of everything else. I know sometimes you pick on topics for God-knows-how-long (and really, I wish it would go on for longer, because I can't ever get enough of WTF@TFW), but a whole section devoted to just one topic (either picked at random or to do with recent news/events) would definitely be interesting (and because I love the in-depth discussions you guys do).

    By the way, two podcasts in one day was worth the wait. So good. I still get disappointed, though, when I see a long podcast and half of it is what stuff you guys got (not that I dislike that part, because I don't, but the first half is usually my favourite).

    I'd love to hear more stuff as fantastic as the Unleashed Guy (I know there are others, but that's the first one that comes to mind).

    That sort of thing just has to happen, if you try to force a joke it almost never works.

    Wow! How angry do you have to be to throw a table at someone? Or was it at Botcon, and was she pissed because all of the exclusives were sold out? Hmmmm

    Also, I'd think you guys would like the more show-accurate colors in TFGO.

    Okay, 2 things;

    1. What does "CHUG" mean? I'd like to know what it means before I start hating it.
    2. That intermission. That was great.

    Also, I did the same thing Vangelus did and went Autobot on the discs and Blaster. I'm tempted to get Soundblaster, just because I'm like that, along with the Decepticon discs.

    I loved the discussion on the Bape Prime :) 

    A Bathing Ape's releases are definitely not for TF fandom, but entirely for fashionistas who are obsessed with buying anything related to fashion labels (the same people who buy Neighborhood's t-shirts for $100). Bape had a series of Kubricks (Baby Milo) years ago which sold for 5x or 10x the amount a regular Kubrick sold for just because of the Bape name. They're the insanity that is prices out of the door being higher just "because" :p 

    10 years ago, when I was vinyl-figure & Kubrick mad, getting a couple of HLJ parcels a week, I'd have sunk the cash into these Primes... am I ever glad I'm over that.

    The more people complain about CHUG the more I am inclined to use it.

    The Term that annoys me is "Classics 2.0" or "Classics 3.0" or any time anyone uses a pointless ".0". CHUG has nothing on how annoying people are who use ".0"

    I was so excited to hear the demonic spoiler drop return. I'd like to request an acoustic version done on the recording one time. Let Seth Cylon do the background chant and Vangelus can free style the disclaimer old school hip hop style while others beatbox or bang on drums;)  Another stellar show gentlemen.

    Another good episode. Loved the bit on Webdiver. A really cool, if completely wacky toyline. I still need Wyverion dang it!

    So I've never heard of Webdiver, but I just looked up the hovercraft sharkman and oh my god I want one so badly.

    Great episode, gentlemen.

    The only reason I got a Bape prime was it was close enough to go with my black prime collection.
