Hello there, Repackers.

Here´s a double bundle of questions to enlighten your days:
1. What is your Favorite Toy line that, in your opinion, died too soon?
2. What is the one Toy line/Brand that, in spite of your numerous sacrifices to the old ones, just doesn’t die?

BONUS CRACK QUESTION:
If you had Magic Powers that were somehow limited to enchanting expensive plastic and/or diecast, which one of your toys* would you enlarge to a 1:1 scale?
*For the sake of Sanity, both Fortress Maximus and Castle GreySkull are exempt from this scenario.
Signing off, Ivanhobe, The Extraordinary Fanboy

Hi guys,
This stems out of your discussion in episode 18, in regards to the 3rd party Ultra Magnus and Metroplex. I feel like 3rd party companies started out by making more obscure Transformers that Hasbro/Takara had no plans for (massive combiners, for instance). But over the past years it seems like they’re covering a lot of the same ground as Hasbro/Takara. Do you think it’s a sales thing? Is ToyWorld selling a lot more of their TW-02 Orion figure vs TW-T01 Grind Rod?
Personally I’d prefer if they continued doing more obscure characters (I’d love to see them try to tackle Beast Wars style figures, if Hasbro/Takara doesn’t continue with them past Rattrap), but I understand the desire to sell more units.
Thanks!
-Greg

One thought on “Ep 025 – 27th May 2014 – Gourmet Whateverthefuck

  1. Hi guys,

    What’s your feeling towards toys with clear plastic joints. I bought a lot of DC Direct figures in the past, and the joints have the tendency to break ovetime…even with minimal to zero posing. Has this even happen to you guys? Up to this day, they still use clear joint, and I cannot undertand why. Thanks! Love the show!
