    Aged Wheelie is an underrated design choice. Although I can\'t help but imagine Wheelie busts out spitting some rhyme dense bars like Rigamortis or Meat Grinder.

    Loved the tangent about instructions, thanks for opening my listener question! Really insightful stuff, i like the idea that a figure is best kept in package, if the figure in its package is an experience within itself.

    I held on to a First Edition Bulkhead in the box for a while. I had found him for a song at a Toys-R-Us that was closing (just my location, probably an early symptom before reorganizing into a fine Canadian brand). And this was way after Prime, I assume some member of staff smuggled into some back room and forgot all about it until they were let go.
    I already had the Japanese version with the forest green, but snapped him up because VALUE! So it hung around in an unused corner of my house until I decided to sell it.

    Yeah, doing the wheel once is enough. I hoped to keep the wheel itself, but it's so not worth it. I still want some sort of stage with plinths for them.

    Thanks for responding to my long message Vangelus.

    Nothing like hearing my own words months later to realize how naive I was when there was little to no information available in regards to the 86 characters in Studio Series.

    Having seen the actual figures now and seen how they do the numbering I truly don't mind there addition to the line. And like all of you said, the live action bots have gotten plenty of attention and are not getting delayed because of the 86 characters.

    Thanks again! Loved listening to the entire episode.

    Woof my question pointing at specific hosts was entirely meant to be endearing, not a couple of call-outs. My bad!

    The first time I bit into a fish bone, I nearly vomited. It was much the same feeling as getting the sudden crunch of eggshell in my soft, gentle, scrambled eggs.

    I also want to see these pictures of the modulators Chris and TJ were talking about.

    Listening to the conversation about putting the G1 Arcee design to bed, I was immediately reminded of the Terminator crossover series, and their fantastic Arcee and Velocity designs. I want that Arcee to be the new default.

    I don't, but iirc I was mostly trolling through tfwiki and a couple of youtube videos from when they all got re-released in that Movie The Best line

    My favorite undocumented feature will always be the little ‘seat’ on Masterpiece Grimlock. I spotted it only because I have the WST unofficial Grimlock and thought it might be neat if they had the same seat of translucent plastic on the MP. Much to my surprise I discovered the gray bit on his back can open up to ‘seat’. It’s not a great seat, but it’s obvious that’s why it’s there.
