Howdy All,

Just finished listening to Reheated Episode 001 … loved it. My wife absolutely loves television cooking shows, but she hates the joyous sounds of people enthusiastically eating. I plan to keep this podcast on my iPod so that I can replay it for her any time I feel she needs to hear it. Thanks for that.

My local comic books store, Collectors’ Planet, in Corpus Christi, Texas has started ordering and selling Japanese import toys. Each week, I covetously drool over the Ultraman, Gundam, Kamen Rider, Tiger & Bunny, Zeros, and other several other lines that I just do not understand. I have a couple of questions for you all (even though Paul is too busy finding a job and moving to be there to answer) so that I can make my oh so few dollars go the furthest when buying these imports.

What are the differences in quality (articulation, sculpt, paint, durability, etc.) between the lines – S.H.Figuarts, S.H.Monsterarts, Figma, Figuarts Zeros, Figurise, S.I.C., and other similar lines?

If you could buy one figure and only one figure from any of the lines discussed to be the best representative of Japanese toy lines for a first-time buyer, what figure would you pick?

Thank you helping me decide what I should select as my first Japanese import figure. Let me know if I can ever help you get the toys you need from the US.

Thanks,
Jake

Two questions for my favorite toy collecting podcasters.
Assuming the ludicrous price point were not an issue what one 1/6th scale crazy expensive figure would you like to own?
Second question, are there any roleplay toys you would consider carrying around/wearing as you go about your normal daily life?
As always, thank you for the podcast. It brightens my drive to work.
Hail Lacrox (and hi to those other people too),
Matt Foster
