Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 033: We’re back like Kotter bitches.

If you have no idea what the reference is, it just means you’re young and I’m old. I’ve been feeling old lately because it seems like there is never enough time. I can remember even 5 years ago, being bored trying to find stuff to do, let alone when I was a kid. As kid you figuratively have an endless supply of time to "play" with. Nowadays it takes everything I’ve got to take care of business and not feel like I’m working myself to death. Now don’t feel too bad for me, this "work" I do does partly consist of keeping up with toy news and organizing, what is getting to be a ridiculous amount of action figures.

If you can’t read between the lines, the above was a poorly veiled apology/excuse for taking so damn long to put out a cast. Trust me, it won’t happen again. Of course, barring one or two my favorite apocalypses, Zombie, virus or similar. We’ve got a long one to make up for the time we’ve been gone. In con news we talk about Orko and his "accessory", Prince Adam. We also recap all the new information from Joecon 2010. Are we getting a Rodimus Masterpiece? What about all those Botcon leaks? While new stuff isn’t hitting shelves or pegs, the webs are on fire with pre-orders. Did I mention we actually have a review this week? Too bad it’s of a doll and not an action figure. Lastly, we’ve got a ton of new voicemails. So buckle up, strap in or what your favorite form of restraint is because it’s going to be a toyrific ride.

    Ugh!… I hate that Spirit and Quick Kick are TRU exclusives. My TRU is really sucky and people like to talk about how they don’t understand how it’s still open. We rarely get good stuff. I don’t know how my son and I both got ROC Shipwreck and Doc. Maybe we’ll get lucky twice. Quick Kick was one of my favs as a kid. I got him and some Autobot tapes for Easter one time. Loved him. His crotch broke though. Makes me love the O-ring less modern toys even more.

    @Saber: I’m mad excited too. Watch out Orlando. Now if they would just post the damn registration.

    @Mike Burns: I haven’t had any issues with the Joe exclusives so far, but exclusives are always a plaque on the hobby. I agree, Quick Kick was always one of my favorites. Besides being a ninja fanatic like everyone else, his shit talking was always hilarious. That on top of throwing stars on his shash, pure magic.

    Hey, just heard the podcast and read the Google voice transcription of my message. As you can see, it’s Misterbigbo- I was Bigbo as a kid and now am grown up-ish.

    I loved Quick Kick as a kid, especially how he was shoeless and half-naked all the time and no other Joes seemed to care. . . or lend him a frigging shirt.

    I’m so glad you wrote in Bo and let us know we butchered nom de plume. Names are very important to us. We’ve never got how someone can just let other people pronounce or worse, completely flub their name and never correct them.

    I had totally forgot he was also shoeless. You would think that would be a very serious violation of some sort of protocol.

    I really like the music too. Mrs. McFavorite is getting pretty creative. If you didn’t snap, it’s the Super Mario Bro. music in Musak form.

    Yeah and the boy band shit, all of that shit. Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, the whole nine. But, even if I lose cred, I always seem to like at least one of those fucking songs.

    Thank again for calling in. We really appreciate that shit.

    Peace…Slicky

    Not watching Lost yet. Have it queued up on Netflix. Now the goal is to avoid spoilers for 6 months until we can catch up.

    I’ll definitely “Like” the Bitch’en!
