Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 008: Now longer, more incoherent and with free ramblings.

NOTE: This podcast was recorded over a week and a half ago. Due to our Valentine’s Weekend Extravaganza and one hell of a week it’s a little late. Our sincerest apologies. Look for a new cast next week as we discuss the aftermath of Toy Fair.

Well it’s a great time to be a collector or even just a fan of the franchises. We’ve got new toys showing up in the stores. Amazing pre-orders online and Toy Fair was last weekend. This is on top of new movies, Clone Wars seems to be getting better and Fanboys was just released to more cities, including the Mile High City. YAY!.

On this week’s show we are back to our old tricks and by old tricks I mean drinking more than we probably should. This becomes evident at about the one hour mark. We blame this for being our longest show ever coming in at about 2 hours and 20 minutes. During which we talk about the disappointment that is the U.K. Toy Fair, the new Star Wars Q&A, spoil some new G.I. Joe: ROC characters and that’s just our first four news stories. Other highlights include: Fallen toy revealed,  stupid price increases, G.I. Joe Hall of Fame figures, a new Jabba, Open Your Toys gets twitterific, oh yeah, rambling, lots and lots of rambling.

Well I think we got the sound issues worked out. But we introduced another, lets call it an opportunity, to make the show better. While it was great actually being able to look at one another, I realized I do the show notes in way that is only useful to me. We’ll be introducing some more improvements over the next few shows, so stay tuned.

    Uhm, define rambling? When you guys talk toys, you guys are speaking the language of love…and who can really get bored of that?!?!! (Maude & Joan Rivers Don’t Count – They have been dead for centuries.

    On the Transformers front, anytime I hear the phrase Revenge of the ***STATIC*** after the word Transformers, I BLACKOUT, no pun intended. Gosh Darn Spoilers!!!! I will wait for Botcon to shove those Millions of hours of Spoilage up where the Sun Don’t Shine, thank you very much!

    Recent Store Pickups (YAAY!)

    Animated Samurai Prowl ~ has been opened and he has been played with! Very, very cool Mod’ of an already ultra cool robot. I think Snake Eyes / Storm Shadow were so cool that Hasbro had to incorporate that into the making of Prowl, they just had to. You’ll be glad to know that I figured out how to keep his legs from popping off. The secret? “Mind over Matter” Humming Technique! Try it as you transform him, it really works! Rating: 5 Robot Points!

    Universe Vector Prime ~ h-h-has b-b-een opened &, errr transformed and placed on the shelf. Why the reluctance? Well, he’s got a sword that’s twice the size of him and I’m afraid that ol’ Vector Prime will get some war flashbacks and slice my wrists or something during transformation. He is very sturdy, and will stand on your shelf very prominantly. He’s got a nice chocolatey/poopy color scheme (if your into that sort of thing). Beware of that sword! Rating: 3.5 Robot Points

    Mighty Muggs Starscream ~ NEATO! I want to just take him out of the box and hold him in my arms like the cute little cuddly muffin he is! BUT, AS A RULE TO MYSELF, NO MIGHTY MUGGS ARE ALLOWED TO LEAVE THEIR PLASTIC PRISON! If anyone else in TransLand sees him in the store, PICK HIM UP ASAP! Personally, his little wing makes the entire display stand out! Yes, more than that Mighty Little Mugg of his! Rating: 5 ROBOT POINTS!

    Until Next Time, Sabertron OUT!

    Just finished the show, it was a good one, keep the show’s at 2 hours i’m not a fan of short podcast there’s a movie podcast i listen to and every show is only 1 hour every and they never get to all the news, I like the long one’s but if you change it to only an hour that’s cool i keep listening.
