    WTF @ TFW - 629 - January 20 2023

    [email protected] 629 is here, and friends? Things are getting weirder than usual, as finally the gaze of a Wizard is upon us. TJ is gifted a new planetary child, Vangelus fans the Hot Shot flames, and Aaron messes with a high-dollar helicopter.... Okay, not EVERYTHING is weird.

    extremely happy to hear positive thoughts about Kingdom Rhinox. While I share complaints about the lack of paint, his articulation is so cool that I kinda don't care.

    Also, just want to recommend watching the emgo Just Transform It video. if you do the legs in a specific order, it's actually pretty smooth and easy.

    i don't get the hate for legacy hot shot. i don't think he's perfect, but he's a fun toy. mine is also tight where it should be like the knees and visor so i don't have those issues that were mentioned.

    the gaps in the legs aren't good i will agree there. but people act like it's an affront to god but it's just a flawed toy. it's not like hot shot is one of those 'cursed' characters who will never have a good toy like galvatron and hot rod were for so long. plus i just don't get the 'joke' about hot shot. the original toy isn't that much different than the rest of the armada line in terms of gimmicks and lack of articulation.

    15 years later and my infamy for sending TJ disassembled toys lives on. I'm sorry that I spawned imitators but I'm glad other people send you cool stuff. Do you still open your boxes with a Klingon dagger?

    I got to looking at my Hot Shot, and ended up fixing the knees. It's actually pretty straightforward. You just gotta shave off those pointless nubs on the knee joint. Without that extra point of resistance, the knees actually stay in position.

    My answer question gets answered and Vangelus gives a good review of Kingdom Rhinox (he's my favorite character and I like that figure) well this just became my favorite episode.

    I should mention in the time that I sent in that listener question Studio Series '86 Ironhide had grown on me and I do own the figure but I'm keeping the Siege figure as a backup, in encase any of the clear plastic panels on the '86 one crack on me.

    I did think of another listener question a few months ago but I wanted to wait until this one was answered before I sent it in and now I can't remember it. Hopefully, it will come back to me soon.

    I'd just like to say that I love the new Hot Shot.
