    I'm thinking the blackspikey things on Salmoore's wheels might be his bike mode seats turned inside out. Also, his whole transformation seems to be the RTS Wreck-Gar toy's transformation.

    Did you notice that TFcon used that movie Fracture toys in their convention comic as Crasher?

    Speaking of third party GoBots, we have seen a Leader-1 head for Classic Cy-Kill before, a not-Bad Boy from X-Transbots, and a not-Pathfinder and a not-Van Guard from TFcon.

    Vangelus, your impersonation of G2 Sideswipe sounded like Roger Ramjet after he ate peanut brittle.

    I wonder what Seth's reaction will be if the rest of the pirates turn out to be more Squadron X guys.

    That goes without saying, but what is this in reference to? I assume something about the Botcon toys.

    The way Ferak came to be... Though I disagree with you about characterization. He and Tornado are fun because they are essentially blank slates. And for those who wish we had more NAMES, well, we have that covered with Devcon and MORE than have it covered with the set's centerpiece.

    Awww, I guess "Botcon dude who championed a Ferak toy for years" is not going to end up being a long-running joke reference in the podcast then. :(

    Amazing Spider-Man 2 Legends swap figures

    Spawn of Symbiotes
    Carnage<=>Toxin(Eddie Brock)

    Skyline Sirens
    Black Cat<=>Spider-Girl(Anya Corazon)(the new-ish girl with the Julia Carpenter-like suit)

    Deadliest Foes
    Ultimate Beetle<=> Boomerang


    Don't know if that's of any help, but I like making lists.

    "Ferak? Ferak! Why is he running, Dad?"

    "Because we have to chase him."

    "He didn't do anything wrong."

    "Because he's the 'bot Cybertron deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a unknown character. He exploded on impact. A collector club exclusive."

    "MASK: Agents of Joe"

    ^This!!!^ Why has this not been done yet?

    MASK is the best in-between and option between Transformers & GI Joe. Why is Hasbro not even attempting this?

    Not that it matters much, but Unique Toy's estimate (on Salmoore) might be closer than on most 3rd party items. I forget where I heard it originally, but supposedly Unique Toys is CHMS, and basically is a Factory making stuff themselves.

    As such, they have a bit more control over production, compared to the rest of the groups out there.

    And for a newish start up, it'd explain how they seem to be so productive.

    I just got the best idea for how to reinvent G.I. Joe.

    So I had been thinking that they need to try and appeal to the Call of Duty crowd, but I was feeling like they might be a little old to still be buying toys. Then, it occurred to me that you could appeal to the younger siblings who see their older brothers playing COD, but the parents won't let them play too, so then Joe adopts a similar aesthetic to get that crowd.

    And as for story, have it be a squad of modern military soldiers who have to fight against the Russians, led by the evil Vladamir Nitup, and their first mission is to go and free a kidnapped rock band called Wussy Riot.

    ...What?
