    Fun fact guys, in 1996 I cleaned cells on Aladdin King of Thieves when I was a trainee inbetweener at Walt Disney TV in Sydney Australia.

    When it comes to why the movie designs look the way they do; they clearly took the 'alien' part of 'alien robot' into account. Like, they didn't speak English at the beginning, they hatch from... e-eggs. Some of them having kinda odd body shapes isn't that too far out, at least to me.

    Small criticism...I know there have been a ton of conventions etc etc this summer...but it kinda sucks when you’re listening to weeks old news and have heard it from other podcasts already. Not saying this episode in particular is completely that way since I’ve yet to listen, but that seems to be the trend lately. All the TCG stuff is great, but I don’t play...seems like that has taken precedent over other stuff as well.

    Love you guys!

    TCG reveals usually are timed & will definitely take precedence - other delays are all on me & have had no real underlying motive other than work/family/traveling and occasional malaise

    Regarding some of the issues with Galaxy Upgrade Optimus looking a bit too much like Magnus. I recently got an upgrade kit for it. It's not the one on the front page. This is an unpainted, 3D printed one, that makes some notable improvements.

    Thigh extenders. You actually get two options for this.
    Shoulder pauldron exteders.
    Arm, leg, and backpack fillers.
    Plates to cover up the underside of the two cannons.

    The slight increase in height really does make a difference. It gives him those super robot proportions, that lean him away from looking too much like Magnus. If anyone wants to get it themselves, here's where I bought it. [ToysHero]InHand Transformers Siege War Galaxy Optimus Prime Upgrade kit ROS-004 | eBay

    I also got the Toyhax stickers. Those also do a pretty good job of adding a little more Galaxy Convoy to it.
