Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 075: Talking the talk…

I am about talked the hell out. If you didn’t know this is the first time we’ve actually had a booth at a con . Denver Comic Con was absolutely amazing and far exceeded our expectations for its inaugural year. Our table was located in Podcast Peak. It was us and a whopping one other podcast, Reel Nerds . They were great guys (and lady) and do a great show. They’re primarily movie based, but span all of geekdom. The movie episodes are awesome because they do a spoiler free review, then play the trailer and from then on all bets are off. We also met Josh and John of the Points of Interest Podcast Network . I’m already digging their Geek Speakeasy and Staying Off Topic casts.

We didn’t get to speak a lot toys, at least not with a lot hardcore collectors, but we did talk to a ridiculous amount of people. As usual, we get plenty of toy talk in during the show which was recorded in its entirety at the con. In Masters news, we’re getting a great quarterly variant in one of my favorite vintage toys, Dragon Blaster Skeletor . While we’re in a holding pattern with Joe for the next 7-8 months, we got an amazing Joe compatible product in Marauder "Gun-Runners" Series 6 . In the "coolest thing I’ve seen in a while" category is this Star Wars Lego hologram display . My favorite news of the show? Masterpiece Soundwave with a MP Laserbeak and his other minions are not only confirmed, but displayed. While the uncharismatic bore is a pretty simple Masterpiece relatively, the Laserbeak is amazing. His guns actually fold in on his cassette mode. I CANNOT wait for this, no pun intended, masterpiece.

    Hello Slick McFavorite Mrs McFavorite, this is AliasAngel. I look forward to everyone of your episodes, it is a lot of fun to listen. :) Thanks for the putting the hard work for all your listeners. Oh, please save me a blow-pop too haha!

    Slick McFav, I know you guys just cover the four properties but I would like to recommend you the Marvel 6″ line. I normally only stick to 3.75″ figures but I recently purchased “The Avengers Walmart Exclusive” 6 inches and I’m so impress! You’ve got to secure all six of these figures man. The MSRP is $16 each but some characters are pretty hard to find such as Hulk and Hawkeye. I hope Mrs Mc Fav allow you to get them because they are so worth it. If both of you love the Avengers movie like me, I highly recommend it!

    On to something more expensive, do you currently own any Hot Toys 1/6th action figure? I’m debating if I should buy the Black Widow 1/6th Limited Edition. What’s your take on this expensive ticket item? The last time Hot Toys did a female character is Sucker Punch Baby Doll, and I just don’t think her face and skin tone is accurate. Hope Hot Toys get it right with their next female character. Anyway, let me know what you think of Black Widow Hot Toys 1/6th scale.

    Thank you so much for your support on my Deviant Art and Youtube site. I will continue to work hard and create more pretty pictures for all to enjoy. XD

    Cheers,
    AliasAngel

    I actually just got the Avengers Hulk. Took over a month to find him. I think he’s great. Much better in my opinion than the Marvel Select version. I’m excited for the Marvel Legends Hulk due out soon. He’s really the only Marvel character I collect. On the DC side, I do Lanterns. I have a RIDICULOUS amount of DCU(C) and DC Direct Lanterns. I think I do prefer DCUC’s aesthetic over Marvel Legends or DC Direct. Just something about the big feet I like.

    I don’t own any Hot Toys, but the Joker is just amazing. I loved Sucker Punch, but I agree the Baby Doll just doesn’t look quite right. However, the Black Widow looks great. I’m not a big 12″ guy. Only one I have that’s not on the chopping block is a Sideshow Crimson Cobra Commander. I’ve been kicking around getting an armored Star Wars figure too. Really been leaning towards a Black Hole Stormtrooper. I just love obscure repaints.

    They were really popular we gave out almost 200 of them with 98% of the people only taking one. I think I’m going to start giving them away with our cards at cons and including them in all packages I send out. Seems like they will be much more popular than stickers.
