Go go Power Rangers rights directly to Hasbro! We talk about the big news of the week, go through some reviews, then take a nice detour to talk about the current state of Star Wars 3.75 inch figures. After that, a few bits of news and awaaaaay we go!
In days long ago there were stories “Legends” if you will of The Repacked Podcast. Records of this time were hazy but it was said they had Vince keeper of the robot punch sled and the Rod of hotness. Craig who traveled the skies on wings made of night, and was really bad at abbreviating things. Kyle who hunted with the beasts looking for the Ultimate Prime, and acquired a trifecta of seekers that made the skies rain. Finally Andy whose rich as hell and got Hot Toys Luke “the lucky bastard”. These are their tales.
Do you have any figures from other lines on your shelves as stand ins for characters that have either not been made yet or are too expensive? Currently I’ve got a Faith figure from Buffy and the modern Vision standing in for MCU Vision and Scarlet Witch as well as a Cordelia figure (also from Buffy) as a stand in for Peggy Carter. For a long time I had a Superman wearing yellow goggles I’d made as a stand in for the DCUC Eradicator as the proper figure was, at the time, really hard to find and expensive.

LISTENER QUESTIONS from:Branden date:Sun, Nov 8, 2015 at 9:41 AM Subject: Toy changes
Hey Repacked crew
Congrats on 100 episodes and thanks for having me on. On to the question, let’s say a super force came and said, you are allowed to change one line of toys into anything you like. However in return you lose one line you like forever. What line would you change and what about it? And what line would you give up? Here’s to 200 episodes
