    A thriller with international toy-political intrigue, suspense, bounties... I'd watch the hell out of that.

    Probably the most dated part for this episode is when we talk about the possibility of new Gobot toys from Hasbro or andai.

    I'm embarrassed to admit it took me a really long time to realize Cy-Kill 's name was a pun.

    Minotaur the Duck is a joke from the old Four Horsemen forums. During the Fantastic Exclusive voting that resulted in Scarabus winning, some people complained that Fantastic Exclusive was always anthropomorphic animals. Name calling and forum shenanigans ensued. See the image for a little more history.

    Eventually a member (sorry, can't remember the name) posted a drawing of a squat duck with a scar over his eye wearing a horned hat with the caption "Vote Minotaur the Duck. Anything else would be illogical". Another member named Mr. Yac created a whole backstory for the "character". It was a beautiful zeitgeist of a thing that tons of people, myself included, loved and really wanted a toy of.

    I'm glad that my Gobots question was actually well-timed!
