LISTENER QUESTIONS –

Hi Repackers, I have caved in/ bent over, and bought that SDCC Thanos set I mentioned in my last question to you on Ebay. It cost me about $200 shipped. It got me a good question to ask you.

1- What is the most you have paid for a toy, that you knew was too much but got anyway?

2- Albie. If you end up getting that new Marvel Legends 3 pack announced at SDCC, will you sell me the Radioactive Man? I am the opposite of you and have no interest in the other two in the pack. Craig should vouch that I am legit (I hope).

3- What is the deal with all the love you guys have for Hot Rod/ Rodimus Prime? After all he was a turbo revvin’ young punk that got his commanding officer killed and took his job. Sorry it’s been 30 years since that movie came out and that still annoys me.
Until next time may all your exclusives be bargains.

Good Journey, Kyle.

Hello there, Repackticons.

Today I come to you, not with a question, but with an offering of peace and by “peace” I mean a clarification to some doubts you had in recent episodes about the mysterious resurgence of the ‘Max Steel’ toy franchise.

In episodes 31 and 32 you all seemed to be a bit baffled at news of Mattel continuing the Max Steel Toyline and the surprising release of a trailer for a Max Steel Live action movie, particularly because the Max Steel toy line doesn’t really sell in the US and seemingly Australia. Well there is a reason for that.

You see, Max Steel is not popular in the US, but the franchise is HUGE in Latin America.

Ever since its appearance in 1997, Max Steel has enjoyed huge success in México, Perú, Brazil and Argentina. I ought to know since I live in México and I actually own several toys from the first waves of the Toy line. Just to give you an idea of how popular Max Steel is over here, there are currently 9 Max Steel CGI movies that have been produced since 2004, and of those Movies only the first one, ‘Endangered Species’, was released on the US while the rest have been exclusive of the Latin American Market. What´s more, the recent ‘reboot’ series created in 2013 actually premiered first in Latin America before airing in the US.

So basically, don’t be surprised if you continue to read news of the Max Steel Toy line even if you don’t see the toys selling, since Mattel primary focus is not the US Market and chances are that the new Max Steel movie won´t be heavily promoted over there, but it will be huge here. Seriously, I cannot overstate how popular the Max Steel brand is over here, if i go to the Toy section of my closest Walmart the Max Steel Toys easily outnumber the Transformers and Avengers Toylines. Combined.

Also, even though this was not a question…

BONUS CRACK QUESTION BECAUSE WHY THE HELL NOT: In the hypothetical case that your were put in the witness protection program after witnessing a Tank murdering the parents of a wealthy 9 year old kid and you had to change your name to hide your identity, which name of a Toy, Toy line, character or franchise would you use as your last name? (Example: Paul Rider or Nik AgeOfExtinction)

Honestly laughing at Albie´s puns, Ivanhobe, The Extraordinary Fanboy.

PS: Kill Lacrox is still the greatest nickname ever.

    1. Crikey. I don’t know what happened to cause the upload to stop off at 75%… I uploaded the m4a file at the same time and it finished without issue. 🙁 That said, I’ve updated the file and we now have lift-off. Sorry for the trouble Eugene! -Albs
