LISTENER QUESTIONS
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Hi Repacked,

I decided to box up my Transformers Prime collection to free up some shelf space and make way for my growing “classics” and Masterpiece collection. In the process, I broke Prime RID’s forehead spike. I tried to glue it back with super glue but it wouldn’t adhere. The glue just pooled up into a gooey mess, didn’t dry and melted the plastic. I’ve had this problem before when my Animated Rodimus’ hand split and the same thing happened when I tried to glue it back together.

Super glue was my previous go to adhesive when something broke or crack but twice now, it didn’t work and made the problem worse.
Has this happened to you?
How can you tell when super glue will work or not on a toy?
What other fixes would you recommend for this?

I’m gonna hunt for a replacement Prime RID Arcee now. *sigh*

Thanks for the show.
Eugene

Hello there, Repack Garrison.

The other day i was pondering about my Ultra- Act Figures (as i am sure
we all do sometimes) and i noticed that it is actually very hard to pose
some of them into the Cross shot or L-shot pose, which is odd because A)
They are Ultramen and B)There are actual pictures on the back of the
Package that show them doing said poses. Upon closer inspection i
noticed that most of these pictures were tricked since they were taken
at an angle to create the illusion of a Cross shot, which brings me to
my following question: have you ever had a toy that you assume has a
certain feature, either because it makes sense for the figure or because
you can see it on the package, only for it to turn out that you were
deceived by this capitalist engine known as the toy collecting world?

BONUS CRACK QUESTION: Which toy from your collection is the more likely
to survive a nuclear holocaust and subsequently inherit the earth? Rider
1 and Rider 2 are excluded from this question because of course they
would survive a nuclear holocaust.

Pondering about toys and the human condition far more than he should,
Ivanhobe, The Extraordinary Fanboy.

  1. Great episode guys. I got Maketoys Ripper and like Albie, mine didn’t come with instructions either.

    And I have a small correction. The Warbotron third party Bruticus isn’t actually masterpiece scaled. They are closer to being voyagers with each figure being slightly shorter than Generations Springer.

    Thanks and keep up the great work, guys!

    1. Thanks Andrew! I always felt that the Warbotron boys looked like they were trying to fit into the MP combiner aesthetic, but if they are actually consciously trying to be a larger classics, then hey! I’ll eat my words! We just recorded last night, so I’ll mention this on the show next week! 🙂

      Also, what’s up with that no-instructions stuff? Reckon they’ll do more of these or do you think it’ll be stand-alone? (My wallet hopes it’s a stand alone release…)
      Thanks!
