    A noise gate didn't work in the first 30 minutes, so I've taken the file down & am now encoding a fixed version for the sake of all your ears <3

    edit: fixed!

    Beast box is interesting. By force of engineering alone, I love how what they can do with the newer stuff, but also scared I'm never fully learning it because it's often not dedicated chunks and the end goal for any part is some slice of cube.

    Their earlier work was not as strong, but Dio was the good kind of simple, no surprise they made a million of his mold.

    Not sure if I sort the podcast into eras in my mind, however I will recognize there were definitely pre and post periods of "Hypothetical situation time" and "Insectoid bipeds (which might hopefully return to the discourse considering Waspinator's imminent release in Kingdom)". XD

    Thought the question of fantasy vehicles was really interesting. I'd definitely love to drive around in something like Cybertron Crumplezone's vehicle or Dark of the Moon's funky spider tank vehicle.

    any luck deciphering why the RSS feed only works through Google's podcast app, now? I really would love to listen to this through pocket casts, again.

    When I first saw Rodimus it was in the packaging catalog not the movie so I was like cool! They're making more primes. So that's what I think Hasbro screwed up about that. The first transformation I ever saw was Raydeen into a dubious bird but I was like neat concept! More and better! Whereas if they would have said there could be only one I would have been like noooo! I think it could have been better. They just need to make it clear that there will be other primes and the ones that stick will still be around. But also no one wants to see Iwastoldtomakeanewprimimus, it has to actually happen but the proper environment involves the problem I mentioned.

    So not only has Tobots gotten an english dub, but they also have an Amazon international store now! I think they\'re all out of stock at the moment, but they had a selection of everything from the first season of Tobot V all the way back to Tobot OG. It was a super big step for the brand and a representative from Young Toys says Biklonz stuff is also coming!

    Similar reports in the UK. That’s a shame. But I’m excited to see their items become more accessible… even if almost everything is sold out right now.

    Side note~ they have English packaging and instructions
