This week the three amigos join together to talk a bunch of acquisitions, and a news story or two. Craig rides to the Shadow of the Moon, Sal plays the Jokers wild, and Andy finally has some new Hot Toys in Han. In the news, we might go official, we Preach on about NECA’s new Turtle toys.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s also the beefiest Repacked episode in months. There’s a lot of toys to talk about, so we encourage you to utilize our show links below to ogle over all that plastic you’ll soon spend your hard earned $ on.
After the fun of Free Comic book day we come back to earth to talk of things not so free. Andy hopes that his latest purchase doesn’t make him a Muppet, Sal talks with us about his foray into the world of falconry, Vince is all about brown coats and blind bags, finally Craig and Kyle discuss their love of giant men & dislike of wonky eyes. We round things out with a listener question which brings up some OCD issues among certain cast members.
I have the problem of online window shopping, and i’m always talking myself out of starting a new line. For example I really like the Nenderoids right now, but i don’t need them. Do you guys have any lines that you’re constantly tempted by?
I like to create my own little universe with my collection, everything is set around the 3 3/4 scale, so GiJoe, Marvel Universe, Hiya Toys aliens, and even a few transformers that fit. It’s all connected by a cobra science project gone horribly wrong. A rift in reality brought many worlds together. Do you stick to established lore or do you create your own?
We return for part B of Ep one one four as Kyle pores over creature details, shats over kirk, and goes Batson crazy over lightning as Albie puts his heads together as he crunches the details; Vince faces his destiny as he builds towards walking on Rex. Finally, Craig toys with hot pretzels, guns heavily for Luke and prints towards the future.
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!
