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 over time…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 understand why. Thanks! Love the show!

    One thought on “Ep 029 – 24th June 2014 – Microscope… something something…SHIT.

    1. Hey guys,
      Wallgreens is now exactly like Walmart except it is the size of a large McDonalds. In the past they were primarily pharmacys. They have been the most reliable place to find G.I.Joes ever since wave ~2 of the G.I. Joe Persuit of Cobra line (figures only no vehicles). They also charge 20% more than Toys R Us. I think they are getting a Star Wars 6′ Bobba Fett exclusive(Star Wars Action News).

      Before you mentioned Vangelous I never heard of him, so I was wondering if you listen to any other podcasts?
