Welcome to Part 2 of our Toy Fair 2016 coverage! On this half, the team covered the DC Collectibles Batman Animated Series extravaganza, complete with BatwingPLANE gushing before moving on to Transformers with SPECIAL GUEST Ben Yee of bwtf.com as he went through some of the awesome things he saw IN PERSON at the show over the weekend. Finally, we round it off with some NECA Alien and Predator coverage, the crazy sculptwork of the people at Storm Collectibles and round it all off with some LEGO discussion.
Please note that this episode’s show notes were put together with the help of Ben Yee and we took special care to section off the transformers into character specific mini galleries to aid YOU, the listener in following through our discussion. See Ben’s original Facebook gallery here! Thanks again and ENJOY!

The Repacked Podcast is a weekly podcast about Toys, Action Figures, Dolls, Brick-toys and all that plastic crack that we, your hosts, spend waaaay too much of our hard earned cash on.
Welcome back folks! This week we’ve got some WONDERFEST SUMMER 2015 coverage done by Craig before he urgently ducks away because, yep – sick again. 🙁
That said, we’ve also gotten hold of awesome listener and special correspondent Andy Bentley who visited TFCon Toronto 2015 and was kind enough to do some coverage of the show for us. Here are his thoughts (see 46:42 into the show!) SUPER THANKS there Mr. Bentley!
ALSO, as of this posting, it’s Kyle’s BIRTHDAY!!! SO, do us a favour and wish him well, folks! 🙂
Craig recently mentioned that, with the purchase of Transformers Leader Class Ultra Magnus, he would be boxing up his City Commander and putting it in storage.
So my question for all of you is… What makes you decide if you’re going to put a no-longer-definitive figure into storage vs deciding to sell it off?
Are you putting it in storage with hopes that you’ll have room to display it some day?
Also, good job to Albie on all the work he does with the show. The music and soundbites become such an integral part of the show it’s kind of jarring for an episode to be missing them. Albie, you are appreciated!
