    I'm always psyched for a new WTF@TFW!
    I'm about half way through the episode after my morning commute.

    I want to offer one piece of feedback regarding the Siege Spinister discussion: How do you guys not know about the notch that holds his blades in the "V" configuration on his back? :D 
    It's not a solid mechanical lock but when you fold the blades together, they form a feature that catches and holds the blades in place.

    This figure is just covered with little spots of brilliance. I just wanted to make sure you guys didn't miss that.

    I\'m facinated to see if Purple Potato turn out, but not enough to get that must list vibe b/c Seige Shockwave was my jam.

    I honestly like Shocky pulling off a pretty nice interceptor that gears up into a nasty-ass dreadnought.

    Sooooooo I’m assuming Aron has realized at this point that spinister’s rotors DO indeed lock in an upwards V position...right...?

    Oh gosh, I had forgotten about that store. Yeah that was a freaking frustrating experience trying to order a case. Luckily we had a great FLGS in Hieroglyphic games support us growing the Transformers TCG scene after we stopped going to the other store. Unluckily they closed down a week ago, so back to trying to set up a regular night at a different store!

    On my copy of the fig, the "V" lock only works in one direction, even though you can fold the blades in whatever direction towards each other. I didn't notice anything on the blades themselves that would indicate which is the "correct" fold direction and which isn't, so getting them to lock might just be one of those 50/50 shots...

    I haven't listened in awhile (sorry guys) but that image for this episode is great. Dentistry in wrestling is fantastic.

    Mattski's lines up with what mine has. There are 2 detents and one of them might as well be made of tissue paper for as well as it holds. The other only "holds" if I give it a good little push upwards and then don't shake any. I think that the part of the tail mast that creates the catch just doesn't protrude quite as well as it should.

    They don't transform. They're just weapons. Great homaging for sure, but not Targetmasters.

    To continue the Spinister is actually pretty brilliant discussion, you have to turn the left hip a complete 180 to get his fake cockpit to tab in properly. the caveat I found is that doing so is kind of a pain and it isn't hard to ignore the fake cockpit from most angles. haha. If you're picky, though, it can be done. Probably not a bad idea to go ahead and do it for the life of the joint, either. I'd assume we're stressing something when we try and tab it in the wrong way.

    i assumed they were referencing the fact that Singe and Hairsplitter are available, elsewhere in the line.

    No, not those. These.
    Singe - Transformers Wiki
    Hairsplitter - Transformers Wiki

    Singe is the fold-in-half man that's in Rung's wave, while Hairsplitter was renamed Shrute for some reason, and packed in with Skywarp.

    If they did a Legends collection, I'd totally buy it.
