Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 043: More of the same…

Life is funny. Everything seems like it’s going great, but sometimes that is just your comfort level setting in. You get comfortable with the norm. The pedestrian is good enough. Then you wake up one day and you want more. This can happen with your job, relationships, but worse yet, this can happen with life in general. You just follow the path of least resistance.

What the hell does this have to do with toys you ask? Collecting anything, not just toys, is one of those things that it is very easy to find a comfort level with. Whether it’s the little rules we use to govern our collecting or just the routine itself. It’s something that can just become habit and not really produce the satisfaction that you hope it would. Well, I want more. Not necessarily more toys, but more satisfaction from what I do in regard to the hobby I love. It might be customizing, producing original artwork or even just selling some of my toys for new toys. I haven’t quite figured it out yet. However, when I do you will be the first to know.

As with my last post, enough with the whining, we got toys to talk about. While we seem to have less news, we spend just as much time talking about it. There is a lot of Transformers news especially from Japan. Unfortunately, the Transformers Q and A doesn’t produce much (as usual). However the bi-weekly Matty Q and A kind of does. Can you say Castle Grayskull? No, it’s not a confirmation, but you better start saving your pennies. Do you need anything Hasbro? The best sale in a very long time is happening right now. What are you waiting for go buy yourself a Christmas present or ten.

    I kinda disappointed too about them mixing the Vintage waves too.

    Horrible thing is I think I would pay $200 for a Grayskull.

    Please no, oh god, please no posters of half naked teenagers.

    The Generations line can be hard to find out here too. Only seen Soundwave and Red Alert twice now.

    I really like the ROTJ wave too. Can’t wait to buy some openers.

    Come’on zombies are the shit. They’re getting a little cliche lately, but there’s not too much of the in Star Wars. Only Death Troopers and the Geonosisians in Clone Wars. And, no, I like it soft as in paperbacks.

    I actually wish Transformers was in IMAX 3D. Love the scale and I actually like 3D.

    That is ridiculous. Our tickets for Tron in IMAX 3D were $18 a piece.

    Yes the worms episode.
