We’re back yet again ladies and gentlemen! This week we’ve only had Kyle, Craig and Albie along for the show, but we had a bit of TFCon coverage to go over! Special thank you goes out to Mr Andy Bentley who was on-site doing some coverage and taking photos for us and posting it on our facebook! (The intention is to grab Andy’s thoughts soon and add them to an upcoming episode! I’m really looking forward to hearing about this!… and jealous…)
Anyhow, enjoy the show kids! – Albie

LISTENER QUESTIONS (from Eric Crosby)
REPACKED!!!

  1.  I’ve been keeping an eBay eye on some Figma Attack on Titan and SAO figs for a while now hoping for a deal but I’ve noticed that the knock offs are starting to become more and more prevalent.  I’m thinking of just taking the bite now before people try to pass them off as the officials.  What’s y’all’s thoughts on these kinds of issues?  I mean the Neca TMNT knockoffs were great but idk about all these others.
  1. If yall could use 1 signature pro wrestling move on people in public without any repercussions what would it be?  Mine would have to be The Stone Cold Stunner!  There’s just something immensely satisfying in thinking of doing this to jerks who deserve it.  Of course the music and sound effects from the show will accompany the moves for the full effect.

Love, Eric Crosby.
