    I gotta say, Metroplex is kind of growing on me. Though, I agree that the size is a bit off putting. I think the biggest toy I have on my shelf is the MP Prime, or FOC Bruticus. Outside of Transformers, I usually only get smaller things like Marvel Universe.

    And I chose female in the poll. And I chose telepath, because I want a female nunchuk wielding telepathic who transforms into a UFO.

    For the listener question, it may not quite work as an answer since it's not robots necessarily, but I'd love to see Figma versions of the Autobot and Decepticon Headmasters (Minerva), Godmasters and Pretenders from Masterforce. I know CMS Corp released Minerva and Ginrai in the Gutto Kuru line and they're nice but also really expensive; I figure Figma is a nice, more affordable alternative with the possibility for more releases.

    Yeah, I'd like to see that, too. Particularly Minerva wearing something other than her Headmaster outfit, or whatever it's called.

    Listener question: Figma anime-ized Agent Simmons, with wheelchair and S7 jockstrap, obviously.

    You know what would be amazing for SDCC's Joe exclusive? The upcoming Generations Metroplex as the U.S.S. Flagg.

    TFC Toys did a cassette before they did combiners, remember?

    CHMS also did the KO FansProject Protectors, which were great quality.

    Well, this new computer by default handles M4A playback perfectly and without any additional effort on my part, so I guess I'm no longer among the smalltimers having to continue to slum it with the MP3 version. See ya suckers!

    Breaking Bad as a series progresses in a way that's so much better than Dexter did, Vangelus. You're in for a hell of a ride as you keep going.

    If there weren't people that would inevitably be such babies about it, a regular off-topic section not about hauls would be amazing.

    Vangelus you mentioned a small transforming toy from Asia a few-ish episodes ago.

    I went back trying to find what they are and can't find where you talk about them.

    What are they called?

    If I remember right you say one of them turns into a T-rex.
    I think you say they are Hotwheel sized?!
