Dear Repacked,

Recommend me some toy reviewers. Both written and YouTube (preferably written, but those are a dying breed).

Hello there, repackers.
Here´s a question that has been bothering me for a while, because clearly i am a man with straight priorities in life.
Do you think it is possible for S.H. Figuarts to get a license to make Nintendo characters even if Figma already owns the license (yes, i am talking particularly of Metroid and Zelda)?
I wonder because both Figuarts and Figma have the license to make Ironman figures, which is only possible because Figuarts has the license for the Ironman Movies and Figma has the license for the Avengers movies (because that totally makes sense, yo).
So do you think that under that “logic” Figuarts has a chance of getting the license to make, for example, Figuarts based on the Metroid Prime saga since Figma is producing Figures based on Metroid Other M? Or could Bandai just grab the license for all characters that appear in the Smash Brothers games?
And as per tradition…
BONUS CRACK QUESTION:
06_HATEimage-11-1
If science suddenly discovered that toys are in fact self-aware (enough to understand that they are toys but know enough to comprehend Slavery), which Toy from your collection do you think would hate you the most?
Keeping it philosophical, Ivanhobe, The Extraordinary Fanboy.

Hi Repack-men, I really enjoy the show and have been doing marathon listening sessions over the last few days so my brain has been overloaded with all the toy news. The mighty Orsonwellian voice of Lacrox commanded questions so here are a few that hopefully will be airworthy.
2- What do you believe is the next golden goose of toy collecting? Let me explain better, Transformers and Masters of the Universe that were kept mint in box the 80’s are worth lots of dollars (or Yen in Paul’s case) today. What toys lines that are being released in the last few years if kept in packet do you think could be worth big bucks in 30 years time?
I would guess that maybe the DC animated figures from the Justice League cartoon as those characters are always big with the fans.
3- Crazy question time-
08_TSBR
Say that Toy Story was right and all our toys are alive. Who would win a “Battle Royale” situation between the Repacked team using only your toy collection as your army?
Anyway keep up the good work and I look forward to future episodes.
Take it easy, from Kyle.
