    WTF @ TFW - 638 - November 11 2023

    Now it's our turn! First we'll play "TJ Returns from TFCon Orlando!" from my hand! This allows us to play "Aaron: The Non-Chiral" directly from our deck... but that's not all! After playing both of those cards, we reveal our face-down cards: "Vangelus, The Everwatching" and "The Neverending GoBots Rabbit Hole!" These two cards will work together, along with the rest of the field, to create a new episode of WTF @ TFW.

    I end my turn.

    Every so often I try to jump into the model tank space to see if there are any decently sized treads to replace the ones I removed from RotF Bludgeon. Problem is I have no knowledge about tank and tank track scale. And no hobby shops in my area sell replacement tracks anymore.

    Bludgeon is weird. The first weird thing is he's as close as you get to Cyberverse Bludgeon without actually saying it's him, and this line has nothing stopping them from saying it's him.
    The second weird thing is Tarn comes off as more edgelord than the guy with a skull for a face. TBH I'm actually enjoying this brainwave. Grimdark with a dash of The Perfect Decepticon screed. And then you're surprised he's an effective leader.

    You guys are talking about, "What do you want Hasbto to make but they don't", you mentioned the Skychangers when talking about the Go Go Gobots. But did not mention the Spychangers.

    A bunch of deluxe scaled Spychangers would be super cool.

    Hey @Vangelus, I believe it was you who mentioned the designer of MMC's Severed Grin being a "Rick A". Was it by any chance Rik Alvarez? Just curious, as I couldn't find any reference to it doing a Google search.

    MAXIMAL LIES! Skyquake doesn't have an design problem he has the one-two punch of bad instructions and is engineered to have exactly one way that works.

    Since Rescue Bots is now fair game for Chugification, I kinda wanna see that Dinobot Adventures Optimus Prime toy being updated using the Kingdom leader BW Megatron mold.

    I don’t think we’ll ever see Browning ever again.

    The list of characters we'll probably never get a toy of is pretty short, but I'm surprised no one said Botanica.

    tbh! I think Botanica's the kind of character who is perpetually on a whiteboard for Generations as "this'll be a banger if we figure it out"

    Hey everyone, just wanted to give a quick update:
    - New episode was recorded two weeks ago.
    - Currently updating hardware and software side of my shit, again, because otherwise I am going to send Audacity into a fuckin crater.
    - Retail/Baby has kinda preoccupied my time. This has nothing to do with LEGO Fortnite.
    - This 100% has something to do with LEGO Fortnite
    - New episode should be edited and tossed off to The Internet Personality by the EoY. EDIT: Whoops. I'm trying! Work's been hell.

    LATE EDIT: Hey! The episode is encoding and uploading to [REDACTED]! I'll explain later.
