Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 024 (Part 2): That’s a whole lotta questions, answers too.

As you found out from our last show, this is an official two-parter baby. Talk so nice, we’re making you have to listen twice (or at least at two different times). We round out the show with our regular segments: Store Report, Online, What We Got, our favorite, Listener Feedback and Questions and of course Grab Bag, our second favorite.

For the last three segments we have Whitaker (er, McLovin) back in the McFavorite digs. We’re also joined by a podcast virgin, my best man, from the Yucatan, Big Red (er, Jeremy). It’s about par for the course; we show them stuff, ask them how much they think it is and/or what they would pay for it and then laugh at them for not knowing.

That’s the problem. I don’t know if we have mentioned it before, but we only have one or two friends that actually give one shit (that’s less than two shits) about toys and none that really collect. It gets lonely sometimes. I don’t know if any of you feel the same? If you do, don’t, you got US!

    Original Headline: “Angry nation waits for Balloon Boy to land so we can strangle him.”

    Politically Correct Headline: “Balloon Lands Safely (shaking nervously) But Falcon Has Flown The Coupe!”

    Here is why I am writing this tonight: Balloon Boy originated in Colorado. You live in Colorado. Hence, you guys are a bunch of freaks!!!!!!

    I am starting a petition called: “Balloon Boy Owes Me 1 Hour + Of My Life Back.”

    But, on to Toys News… I went to my new 2-story Target and then my 1-story Toys R Us, but there were no new toys, only news of boys playing with toys in attics while the nation watches an empty balloon.

    “Oh The Humanity.” I watched that Jiffy Pop land safely only to reveal Popcorn, Boys. And now I”m reading that this all was a hoax. How do we take the news seriously from here on out? How do we take anything seriously from here on out?

    You people from Colorado have got to govern yourselves more accordingly. The nation has it’s eye on you…and if they catch you guys doing ridiculous stunts such as these again…we may not be so lenient!

    Sorry guys, I love you, but I had to vent to someone in the Colorado area.

    Hey guys!

    Funny stuff indeed. I really think that each new podcast is better then the previous. Which is getting to be quite a feat. Looking forward to the next exciting episode. Really been a fun year sharing the addiction of toys.

    Peace,

    Sorry for the delay in approvals and generally being off the grid. It’s been a crazy last few days. Crazy fun. Took full advantage of that whole TGIFridays Facebook free burger promotion on Wednesday. Went to Rahzel (if you don’t know, google him) on Thursday. Hit the hills and got one last camping trip in. Crazy to be camping in the middle of October in the Rocky Mountains. Then Star Wars: In Concert. Which was AMAZING. Actually almost cried at one part. Oh the capper, free tickets for Zombieland to a brand new theater closest to our house (thanks McLovin!). SHIT! Mad fun. However, if feels real good to be back in front of the warm glow of my pixels.

    @Vern We will definitely be at C5. Looking forward to meeting you.

    @jamie We still need to look into what happened to the editing. I know I spot checked it and the level got wonky towards the end too. Good looking out.

    @Saber That balloon boy was some shit. As you know, Twitter just blew up. Everybody I follow was on that shit. It’s nutty how the kid accidentally ratted them out on national TV. Don’t even get me started that now there maybe more conspirators.

    @Mike Thanks man. Slacking on the episode. With a little bit of Energon and a lot luck will be out this weekend.

    @jaime For comparison, what is your country’s minimum wage down under? If not minimum wage, what does a fast food worker make there?

    Hey Slick, do you know the site that I can get the movie stickers at for the Ice Cream Twins? I can’t remember the folks that do that, and google has been of little use.

    Thanks,

    Hey Mike,

    It’s reprolabels.com. Here’s a direct link. I’ve been kicking this set around since it was announced. If you end of getting it, let me know what you think.

    Thanks man…Slick

    Thanks for the link, I kept wanting to call them retrolabels. The set looks nice, but I hate to pay 8 bucks for stickers for a 10 dollar toy. I may pick it up after I pay for Buster Optimus next month.

    Thanks again,

    Hello McFavorites…
    Love the show, I was hooked from the first one on..I just picked up a Arise Serpentor Arise DVD Battle Set…Long story short, if you want the mass device part, I’ll mail it to you no charge…Just let me know and I”ll mail it this week…Thanks for a great show!

    Thanks Benderfry, but I was able to pick up that set at retail. I really appreciate the offer though. What I really need is the Best of the 80’s set. I actually saw it and passed on it once. Now that set is $70+. Isn’t that crazy? The first two are $13 at liquidation stores (Ross, TJ Max, etc’) , the next two are in demand at about $20-30 and the last is 2-3 times that. Gotta love Hasbro!

    Definitely send that to jaime if he needs it. He should know he will have to cough up some shipping though. I’ve shipped some loose figures down under and that shit cost me like $13. Whada they think they’re doin’, shippin’ that shit across the world…oh yeah, they ARE.

    Yeah,
    Only saw a few of those at retail (that says a lot for South Florida)…But, it may turn up…I got the last set at Marshalls…I’ll keep an eye out for it…you never know

    Jaime, if you want it…it’s yours…just pay the shipping cost…I’ve also shipped down under and it was not cheap…send me your email Jaime and we’ll make this shit happen.
