    To give some feedback on the Ubiquitous LED set!

    It\'s extremely daunting at first mainly because you need to figure out where you want your light panels to go and it sometimes feels like you don\'t have enough cords to thread through the panels or enough space to work with. But one set gives you enough micro-usb cords to work around that sort of thing. You\'ll probably use more cords than you usually need, but it makes getting everything connected easier and less of a puzzle. I\'d love to get a second LED set since I feel having two would really give you lots of possibilities, though I\'d love if NOVA would either A.) Use feedback from this set to improve their lighting set-up to make things more user-friendly or B.) Sell LED sets seperately as well. I\'d happily support a set of LED panels and extra cords.

    The one vehicle I'd like to see made into a Transformer is a 1958 Plymouth Fury, and it has absolutely nothing to do with a famous horror novel!

    Need to skip the others and listen to this one first, as the loco picture has me intrigued. Pere 1225 is the model for The Polar Express...

    I did a google search for "seamless body" and now i can't help looking at them and wondering if they will work with Figma or Figuarts heads.

    Vangelus, you didn't pick up the G2 Maketoys Jazz? I remember you raving about the packaging on Twitter. And Aaron, did Alphie pick one up?

    Happy ten years guys, and here’s to ten more!!!!!

    Also I’d love to see an exploration of the 7 seekers (yes seven!!! The rainmakers and welcoming committee are SEPARATE DUDES!!!) from g1 that no one really knows anything about or cares about lol

    Welcoming committee from MTMTE part1:
    Sunstorm (the yellow one)
    Bitstream (the royal blue one)
    Hot link (the purple one)
    Nacelle (the dark blue one)

    Rain makers:
    Acid storm (the green one)
    Ion storm (the other blue one who isn’t Thundercracker)
    Nova storm (the other yellow one)

    (The above is canon, as per hasbro)

    Happy 10 years guys. I don\'t think I was here since the beginning but I started as a early high schooler just rediscovering transformers, became a college student wanting to design toys because of your conversations, interning at several toy design places where I did make some figures, and then graduating and becoming a full time toy designer. 

    Weirldy the thing I learned most from you guys was plastic types and qualities… you all talk about it a surprising amount and it\'s been amazingly useful.

    Hey guys I\'ve got a listener question. I\'m planning on starting masterpiece collection but I don\'t how and where I should start. Should I stay exclusively to the official line? Or should I do 3rd party? Can\'t wait to hear your response!

    Did you mention it in what we got, with at TF Con or after? I could've sworn nobody mentioned picking it up.

    Dang-it Vangelus, you just had to remind me of those stupid arcee motorcycle triplets...and the complete trash fire that was how they were "supposed to" combine
    ...And how hasbro dropped the ball and it never officially ended up happening!

    Thanks for bringing back frustration that I had thought personally was forgotten about! :mad:

    Aaron's break in the podcast made me realize that there hasn't been an intermission segment in a long time.

    I have 3 separate answers to the "vehicles you want to see transformers as" question. Two of them or boring.

    1.) Pontiac Vibe. I have a special attachment to this because it's my first (and current) car that I drive and own. I love this car so much and would love to see it represented as a Transformers. Plus I named her Chromia so she already has the name down. :p

    2.) Volkswagen Golf GTI. Similar to the Vibe but this is my dream car. I hope to upgrade to one of these once my Vibe breaks down beyond repair and obviously these two vehicles are hatchbacks and look similar to each other but seeing either one of these as a fully fledged Transformer would make me giddy beyond belief.

    3.) Stephenson's Rocket.

    This has been an idea in my head ever since I learned about this locomotive in a high school history class. This was the first steam engine ever made in the world. I've tried to sketch out how I would want a robot mode to look before but I haven't had the talent for it. My idea though was to have the tall smoke stack become an underslung gatling gun. The huge front wheels could be up on the shoulders like Hearts of Steel Megatron and maybe the pistons could become part of the calves. If anyone had any talent I would love to see someone attempt to draw something up for this.
