    Vangelus. Remember to download your free digital copies for comics that you have off of Comixology. You asked us to remind you. I realize it\'s April now and it might not be useful anymore, but you ASKED us.

    Also just love all these uploads! It\'s really fun to hear discussions regarding topics from the last year, just kind of a fun trip down memory lane.

    OOF and that\'s why I do my thinking during preorder time.  I don\'t make enough to buy it later.

    Thanks for putting up these backlogged episodes Vangelus. They are still interesting to listen to even if they are a little out of date. The only knockoff that I own is the downsized Combiner Wars Devastator that I got last year. I got him both because the scales better with the other Combiner Wars combiners and was cheaper than the official version.

    Also when it comes to the price increase and thinking more about hobby spending I'm cutting way back this year. After Kingdom, I'm really just using Legacy to fill in the last few holes in my collection and after that, I'm planning basically only to focus on the core class figures and Beast Wars characters if they start doing the season 2 and 3 characters. I might pick up updated figures of characters I already have but only if they really win me over. As far as other lines go once I find the single release Cog to complete my Power Rangers Zeo display I'm completely getting out of that line and going back to just being a Transformers collector.

    I may have overthought this a little but this is basically my wish list for the rest of this year:

    Yeah, not following the situation I had assumed such a reminder would be irrelevant or resolved at this point.

    Just finishing up the ep, great one as always. Though I was knuckles white gripping my chair screaming “TOXITRON” when you and TJ were discussing possible Laser Prime repaints.

    I've spent almost my entire time as a Transformers fan picking and choosing. I learned very early on than I don't care very much about completing waves or sets.

    Good thing about that is I've been able to get some really good deals, and sometimes you don't even have to wait very long either. Usually after six months or so you can find people selling the current stuff for pretty good prices. On the other hand you can get burned real bad too, just ask my Combiner Wars Superion that's been incomplete now for over 7 years

    Got back into collecting while on furlough, and in the U.K. at least I paid close to £55 each for Misfire and Slugslinger, they did also come with suitable Targetmasters from Siege. Was all three Jets plus a Targetmaster each and paid a little more getting Misfire and Slugslinger, then replaced a slightly poor quality Triggerhappy I\'d bought at retail. They had almost no distribution in the U.K. and I could justify it at the time as wasn\'t paying travel/work expenses.

    Blitzwing and Octo/ane were bought MISB and priced at least double retail too, so that was two plus years ago and the prices were elevated then.

    Admittedly U.K. toy distribution is significantly worse than US and Canada, I believe certain Combiner Wars waves never even got a full release, and it’s very rare to find much at regular retail
