    I've added some timecodes to the topic list because I know some folks have zero interest in old discussion of former news & I've decided to accommodate you this time <3

    That's the only time I've ever heard somebody pronounce "Polynian" like that, and it caught me off guard.

    I feel like that "Mega Man" is just generic enough to be legally distinct from Mega Man proper. It's a robot boy that happens to be blue and maybe do some bombing.

    I have Tracks, and honestly, if the legs locked together, I'd love him.

    I would call that more of homage than a "knock off"

    I was having a rough time the day my Rodimus arrived. Opening it and messing with it gave my brain the biggest dose of dopamine I\'d gotten in a long time, so now not only is he great, but he reminds me of how happy I was when I first got him. Absolutely love him.

    Slug is surprising how great he is. I like Grimlock, but he also feels like if you\'ve transformed a Grimlock figure before, you know what you\'re getting into. There\'s nothing wrong with that, it\'s just not new and interesting. Slug is new and interesting to me. Also yeah, the chonk. He\'s a chonky boy and I love him.

    Since this was recorded 2 months ago, I know I\'m posting to Past-Vangelus, Aaron, and TJ. I really hope Present-Vangelus gets his Rodimus and likes it at least half as much as I like mine (cause that\'s still a lot).

    Edit: I don't know why there's backslashes in my post.

    As a 45 year old who was there when Transformers premiered, Bumblebee was the character 8 year old me INSTANTLY locked onto. We can debate why that is, but facts are facts. He was the most like all the kids I was attached to in the movies and TV shows that I was watching. It was all about him an Optimus. I suspect the test audiences they showed MTMTE to felt the same.

    Fun question from Kurito about the "subscription figure service". Excellent choice on Beastbox, Vangelus. That line is so stinking fun!
    I'm not sure if I can pick a single line without risking boredom. Beastbox is a great choice. Maybe Bandai's Super Minipla? Edit: DX Super Sentai could be fun if you got each year's main mecha for free.

    I chuckled at the thought of Brawn being the kid-appeal character.

    Brawn as muscle-headed but well-meaning older brother is a great image. I could imagine a character like him being something like a buffalo or bison in Beast Wars.

    Still haven’t gotten to the end, but I did not know the part about the cannons in Rodimus’s trailer. Hole crap. This figure is SO GOOD

    Alternate timeline where Cluffjumper was the kid appeal character because red.

    All the movies and shows are the same and still have Bumblebee designs, except the red ones came first.

    Okay so I feel really dumb for listening for so many years but not knowing this small detail: where can I submit a question? ^^; I wanna say it's through messaging Vangelus directly but don't wanna assume. I know for a fact it's not by commenting on the boards. Though I also don't remember if y'all have too many listener questions & aren't accepting anymore currently. Geez, I feel lousy. :p 

    More on topic, I really hope that SS86 Starscream being it's Earthrise mold doesn't act as horrible foreshadowing for SS86 Arcee...........Please don't let that be the norm going forward with Studio Series. :confused:
