    I'm wondering if the hypothetical Transformers Dream Daddy has a secret non-canon ending in the code that everyone hates.

    Currently listening to the episode and I am glad Vangelus brought up the successor to Toys Toys Toys because there is one at a mall where I work near, and I\'ve visited that frequently and as a result I now have like...99% of the Combiner Wars Legends I missed out on getting.

    I think I have this Optimus Prime death party figured out.
    So here is the strat:
    First, you tell RiD2001/Carbots Optimus Prime/ Fire Convoy to get into super mode and stand by.
    Then, go up to the whole party with a megaphone and say "Hey everyone, Unicron is outside and he's gonna kill us all!"
    At this point, 98% of the Optimus Primes will run outside to heroically sacrifice themselves.
    At this point, you have Fire Convoy use his water hose to blast Bayverse Prime into space. It'll be tricky and the timing is key but I THINK Fire Convoy can pull it off. And of course when the other Optimus Primes come back, the obvious instigator will be gone so the party can go back to normal.

    But that's on the first play through. On the second one, you skip the part with Fire Convoy and jump to the Unicron diversion. This time, when everyone gets outside, they'll be too blinded by heroism to notice the spike and/or lava pit beneath them. They fall to their deaths and Shattered Glass Optimus Prime steps out of the shadows laughing maniacally.
    This scenario assumes that you paid the extra $5.99 to unlock the Shattered Glass DLC though.

    I think I’d just want to talk with Marvel G1 Prime to help him with his self-esteem, doubts, and trauma.

    “No, no the npcs weren’t real it’s ok just take a nap”

    “Ratchet and Megatron being a fused abomination isn’t your fault”

    “You definitely made the right decision making Grimlock the leader. I mean he has such a good track record!”

    I've noticed that Vangelus has started to categorize Transformers has either "boyfriends" or "himbos"

    I hate it

    Great episode! I loved the squad question. I think my squad of Autobot from Legacy is Cosmos, Beachcomber and Devcon. Cosmos and Beachcomber are just trying to explore and have fun while Devcon is constantly covering their backsides from danger.

    Guess I'm the weirdo weeb, 'cause I'd go for Ginrai, in which case I'd make an impassioned speech about the nature of justice, dismantling the violent reactionary ideology of live action Optimus and making Ginrai swoon. Then when we get back to his place, he would try and be a human but I'd be like "no, the transtector stays ON" at which point he would politely excuse himself.
