    Every time Vangelus says "dopey soft Mega Bloks" I die a little bit. That Warthog you were sent? It's from the crappy first wave, the QC improved immediately afterwards. I collect Lego and Mega, side by side, and there is barely a difference anymore. It's not a question of quality, but of tactile preference.

    I also like Heroclix. Apparently I'm not High End enough for this podcast :rolleyes:

    About the SHFiguarts Krillin "Dragonball Z".
    Those pegs that attached to Krillin's head is to keep his spare "round heads" from spinning around in the package at retail shelves. Imagine buying Krillin but you can't see his face because the head is spin facing the other way. XD LoL

    Hey, man, don't knock Astray's name. He's very lost in life lately and needs guidance from his... Gundam Meister. Or something.

    I somewhat suspect we might get the TF movie arcade game at Universal Studios. And Maybe Disney & Six Flags. I know Disney has arcade games in every one of their hotels, as well as a whole building in Downtown Disney.

    However, what with Universal Studios having a TF ride, I'm not certain Disney would stock a cabinet.

    As for Six Flags, the last time I visited one of those, arcades were still a thing. No idea if they still have them.

    I had to go look up that Robocop Wrestling thing and man. It's kind of horrifyingly amazing.

    So Seth, since you've heard the podcast and the listener question specifically crafted and addressed for you (thanks Vangelus, ruiner of dreams! ;)  how's that for a new title for you?) what are your thoughts of TF/Wrestling crossovers and a star spangled Huffer? Any TF/Wrestling personalities you'd pair up?

    I was right there too. But having voice in the Marvel game at least does bring a good additional layer to it. Not only to help guide (Where Tt games still need a lot of help) but to give it the ability to run good dual layer jokes. Where kids can laugh at the funny thing and adults can love a good joke that calls to something from 10 years ago.

    Shame that the hipster fatigue is starting to hit the indy gaming scene.

    I kinda had the same enthusiasm for indy gaming that Vang has about indy toys, but it does seem like it's becoming oversaturated with the whole thing of: "Hey, we made a retro game. Give us money."

    I totally would be into seeing Earthworm Jim making a comeback though.

    A Huffer painted up in SSL colors would be amazing.

    They should make WWE figures that Transform just so there could be a Rock Lords style The Rock.

    The people who made the 5MM animal weapons tried to avoid ripping IP, but in ways did. :lol
