    So, Vangelus I've got a few pics of how you "properly" transform the VooDoo figure, that I thought I'd share.

    See, the way I think it's supposed to go is to have the two parts of the backpack squeeze between the two red bits that are attached to the back.

    Granted, getting everything up into that position is a tad awkward, but I didn't feel like I was forcing any parts into position. Its just a question of getting the swivel part into the correct position.

    If you do it right, the backpack really feels like its solid in place. Not dead solid, since you can unseat it, but it isn't bad.

    Kevin

    The little cuffs that buffer the shelves in detolfs look like silicone and they rot pretty quickly. What's the difference between those parts and the new silicone tires?

    I listened to this on the way to my #ToyShow on Saturday. I thought Ian was excellent. I am leaving a comment. Where do I "like"? I have previously subscribed.

    Also listener question. How do I change my username?

    Update on my listener question: in a moment of weakness I added Impossible Toys' Cliffjumper and Bumblebee to the order, too, so I could have the complete set. All three are fine, outside of Bumper having a somewhat wiggly pelvis (which is arguably more feature than bug). At $5-9 they are pretty fun little toys with very vroom-able alt modes. No regrets here.

    You horrible tease, you sing praises of a custom that has to be seen to believe and you don't even give us a link? I wouldn't mind if the Radicon pages were searchable in some degree.

    Brother Vangelus,

    Just catching up on some episodes, Episode 381 is not in the iTunes feed anymore. Is something new happening here? A cost cutting measure maybe? I don't want to break the order and be out of context ;)

    All the info seems to be in order & the file is still there - try refreshing the feed a few times? I'm not sure what else to do. Worst-case, there's a direct link to the audio file at the bottom of the opening post.
