    We don't need John Cena anymore, folks! As Vangelus becomes the newest champion of the world of Lao Gan Ma, Aaron enters the incredible world of Garbage Disposal repair while TJ's continuing adventure into the world of Brave has him going face-to-face with the King himself.

    Notes from the Hive:
    • As always, you can find our hosts on BlueSky and Elon's nightmare social media platform under the names @Vangelus, @TJOmega and @aksmth. They're probably on other places, too. I dunno I'm just the editor, not their manager. You find it.
    • Three months are in the books for our team's Extra Life Fundraising, and so far we're at over $770 raised for various children's hospitals! Vangelus' reputation has been Tarnished as he goes through his Elden Ring adventure, Aaron's been doing his usual thing with the in-person grind, and even your friendly neighborhood editor Bees has been trying to tackle the most Serious House on Serious Earth. You should probably donate. It doesn't matter to who, as either way sick kids gets the help they need. Unless you're some sort of monster that LIKES kids to be sick? But you wouldn't be like that, right? Hmm?

    The thing about "we're on wave 38" being a problem and my counterpoint to that is....Marvel Legends or GI Joe Classified. I honestly don't understand why Transformers can't get by with 2 ongoing lines. 1 for Collectors that spans the Franchise's entire history and 1 for kids that's going to feature stuff like Earthspark. Then you'll also have random playline stuff for the latest movie.

    I have a funny story I just remembered with original GaoGaiGar toys.
    I was at a local now-defunct convention called Slagacon, easily ten-to-twelve years ago, and one of the dealers got this toy that nobody could ID, and everybody was like "What the fuck is this thing?"
    And I looked at it for long enough to realize and point out, it was DX G-08 Big Volfogg. The gestalt legs weren't folded out properly, so it was just this stumpy, weirdly-proportioned combined robot with garish, bright yellow accessories. I think I pulled up footage from the anime on my laptop, and the dude's only reaction was "Uhhh, okay, you wanna buy it or what?"

    At a different year of the same convention, somebody there had boxed copies of Sonokong FuRyu, RaiRyu, and HyouRyu for $30 each. Which was certainly nice, and I'd been waffling about them the whole convention, but I maybe only could've afforded two of them, if any, and the guy insisted on selling them all together due to their interaction.

    (Edit: Made it to the bit at the end of the GaoGaiGar discussion and am now withering into a husk as I curse my 18-20-year-old self)
