Ep 078 – 12th June 2015: Cup and Ball

The Repacked Podcast is a weekly podcast about Toys, Action Figures, Dolls, Brick-toys and all that plastic crack that we, your hosts, spend waaaay too much of our hard earned cash on.

Well, better late than never. As Craig tries to edit a show, the week goes very badly and you get… half an edited show. The first half. The rest of the show is by MP3 skype Recorder, and sounds less good in audio quality, but makes up for it in usual awesomeness.

LISTENER QUESTIONS

(Listener question intro soundbite)

Hello there, Collecting Sentai Repack-engers.

 

Here´s a question for all of you because otherwise there would be no point to this e-mail. We all love toys a little more than we love our hard earned money (sigh), but while we certainly love some pieces of our collections more than others there is always that one toy or toys that we really like but it is really hard to explain to people why we have them, like say, a Kill La Kill figure or 20 PreCure Figuarts (it happens).

 

So tell us, what are the toys from your collections that you Love but that you always have a hard time explaining to people why you collect them?

 

And because yadda yadda yadda BONUS CRACK QUESTION:

 

So, you are trapped inside a bank vault with one of your repack co-hosts and there is a Bomb in there with you that will go off in 60 seconds (it´s a long story). If you were suddenly possessed by the spirit of Angus MacGyver, which toy from your collection will you use to disarm the bomb and/or escape the vault safe and sound?

Greetings Repackers,

 

I just wanted to comment on a couple of things from episode 68…

 

Concerning the dividing line over the Scarlet Witch’s Hex Bolts, I have to say I’m with Albie and “other people” on this one. I think they add a lot of character to the figure and really make it pop on the shelf.

 

Maybe it’s just me, but does it seem like Hasbro has started taking cues from Figuarts and Figma concerning the inclusion of extra hands/heads/accessories?

 

Also, Craig, you mentioned that you mixed the Figuarts and Figma Ryuki figures in your collection.  How well do they go together?  As I really don’t want to pay for Figuarts Imperer, Scissors, Gai or Verde…

 

Oh and lastly, I started watching Baccano! And had the audible equivalent to what my friends and I  call “flavor fakeout!”  (Where you expect one thing but get another, like grabbing what you thought was a sweet tea but turns out to be a coke.) when I heard the intro to the show.

 

Later!
