Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 115: For Auld Lang Syne…

No, that title is not a long chain of typos. It’s actually the name of that song people hum at midnight on New Year’s. Basically it translates to "for the sake of old times". The page I lifted this information from puts it succinctly when it states, it represents "a time when people come together to recall past joys and sorrows, specifically those spent in each others company." I can’t think of a better way to ring in a new year. Fortunately or maybe unfortunately, depending on how well you handle it, that’s usually accompanied by mass amounts of alcohol. How well do you handle it? No not the booze, the new year. Do you welcome it as a fresh start to being the person you really want to be? Do you mourn everything you didn’t do last year? If you’re like me, it’s a little of both. However, whether you’re a glass half full or half empty kinda person, you can’t help but feel a little bit of hope in the air.

Something we have a lot of hope for in the new year is Super7 and Masters of the Universe . We’ll soon see what they’re going to bring to the table. Unfortunately, something we don’t have a lot of hope for is the latest action figure Kickstarter . Something we know will continue to grow is the Masterpiece line, hopefully just not in price. $170 for a Seeker is just too damn much. Something we didn’t talk about much due to time was Rogue One and its relationship to Rebels . You won’t hear much about Rogue One on our next episode either, but just wait until Roger is back and we really kick off this new year.

Here’s to the best one yet…Slick

    Hello Gens

    What pop culture franchise ( only one ) will push you to do crazy things? To make you buy a car? For me, Star Wars definitely. Nissan has certainly pushed the right buttons to tempt me on the new 2017 Rogue.

    Other auto manufacture pushing the pop culture franchises on cars are…

    * Chevrolet Camaro Bumblebee.
    * Toyota Char’s Auris.

    Wishes: It would be interesting to see a Metal Gear Car

    Cheers,

    Great show as always guys. I have a few questions about toy fair thats coming up next month and a few non toy fair questions.

    1. What company’s toy news and reveals are you guys most excited for?
    2. With the new changes to the social media policy regarding a press pass to the show (needing at least 250,000 subscribers on youtube) do you think this is a step in the right direction? I personally believe they are trying to make it a more corporate event.

    3.What is your take on Disney coming out and quelling the rumors about using Carrie Fisher’s likeness in upcoming projects.
    4.Now that Rogue1 is out are you guys going to give us your opinions on the movie? and how excited are you for Episode 8?

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions,I can not wait to hear your answers.
