    No no, the Trislander is awesome.  I love planes with engines in the tail.

    Just finished listening to this one.

    Super fun episode! Cool to hear discussion on the nuances of Transformers and how they would/could exist in the real world.

    Definitely interested in more episodes like this!

    Also, Aaron, I can totally relate to tree troubles.

    This was back in June after a gust of wind came through.

    My car is the silver hatchback at the foot of the driveway. The main branch missed it by a couple of inches.

    It was a close shave!
    I normally park on the left side of the drive too so it's a miracle my car (Stardrive. Always name my cars after Transformers ;) ) got missed.

    I've been obsessed with forward swept wings since I saw the GIJoe Conquest X30 which is based on the Grumman X29. I never had that toy, but I did have a Zee Toys die-cast replica of the X29. I have a couple of Grumman X29 wallpapers on my work computer. Anyway, all that is to say that all the Grumman talk on this episode made me very happy. I really need to get around to picking up Terradive.

    Very lovely listen. Don't know if any of the podcast has Snapdragon in hand yet but I think that's another great way to deal with a transforming aero-body in toy form. I know he's more of a spaceship thingy but his legs turning into the fuselage and cockpit help hide a lot of robot mass along with the engines becoming arms.

    I enjoyed this episode. Maybe have a Paleontology-transforming themed episode.

    Really enjoyed the episode! Some absolutely hilarious parts :) 
    I'm a little surprised no one mentioned Action Toys Eagle Robo as a clean jet with a good bot mode.
