LISTENER QUESTIONS – 00:33:12.150

Hey guys Sam (SoulFlyJedi) here, the new TF mashers are now at TRU here in the states, and I think they look kinda cool and I’m def getting Soundwave when he comes out (he must be in the 2nd wave). What do you guys think of them? Is anyone going to buy any?

Hello there, those who Repack,

When looking at the current Toy Market, what are the features that, in your opinion, define what an Adult Collector oriented Toy should be*? Like, what standards do you think a Toy should uphold in order to separate itself from it’s child-oriented brethren and justify its absurd Price point? I know that Toys are something that should be enjoyed by everyone**, but i would like to know where do you draw the line for a Toy to be worthy of the “Adult” label.

*Note: This Question is specifically aimed at the Western toy market since I would rather keep this question PG-13 and Japanese Toys are a whole other issue.

**Note: With the exception of the communists.

BONUS CRACK QUESTION: If you were to lose one of your hands in a freaky Movie-watching accident and your doctors just happen to have to technology/be drunk enough to surgically graft a Toy onto your arm in order to save your life (it was a really, really bad movie), which Toy would you choose for the procedure?

Doing his best to confuse you so he can steal your wallets, Ivanhobe,
The Extraordinary Fanboy.

Dear Repacked,
Here’s a lil’ something to do.
Take your collection; now form an Avenger-ish team. 5 to 7 members. Actual Avengers are okay. Remember, you’re not making THE Avengers, but YOUR Avengers:
Here’s mine:
Guile (field commander)
Scarlet (the chick)
Piccolo (Namekian green powerhouse)
Agent Trakker (tech)
Hellboy (magic-ish tank)
Kamen Rider 1 (brain (biochemist with an IQ of 600) AND brawn)

Oh, if possible, try to avoid having too many thematically similar characters. So, no 7 Kamen Riders or 7 Ultraman or 7 Precures. At least, mix it up with gimmicks.
Toyanara.
