Ep 086 – 28th July 2015: Looking out for the nipples

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.
086_01
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! 🙂
ENJOY! -Albs

LISTENER QUESTIONS
From Greg Schueller
Hi Guys,

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?

Thanks!

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!

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT Andy Bentley Reports about TFCon Toronto 2015!!!
Thanks Andy!!!
