Ep 121A – 12th April 2016: Sorry, no sorry, you go….

The beginning is the end is the beginning, except where it’s in the middle for the first half of the show. We jump all over the place as we discuss all the Botcon 2016 news. There are Headmasters galore, repaints people have been asking for for years, and figures that no one asked for. I hope you can keep up because we have no idea where we are!

Ep 117A – 15th March 2016: Albie’s Private Warehouse

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.

LISTENER QUESTIONS

From: Jason Olson

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.

*************************************************************************

From: HY-DOJA

We return to the scene of the crime in Part 2, to discuss glowing Riders, baked Mobile Suits, George Takei’s abs, and Captain America’s battle plan for Civil War.

LISTENER QUESTIONS

No X-Men Love?

With the most recent sets of Marvel Legends to come out in the past year, I have noticed a pattern. The most recent  X-Men wave were pushed to a TRU exclusive and in short supply, while the Avengers and Spider-Man waves flourish everywhere.

We have the legends line up for what might be the rest of the year,  and not an X-Men in sight. Also, they have began to focus less on them in the comics as well.

So my question is a simple one, team repacked:

Do you think we’ll see anymore X-Men show up in the Marvel Legends line in the future? Or are they doomed to be exiled, just like their fate in the recent comics?
