Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 053: Best laid plans…

Robert Burns put it almost too eloquently when he wrote "The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft agley.” Basically outside sources can always interfere with your plans. No matter how much you try to compensate, variables exist that you haven’t even thought of. So what do you do when your plans go awry? Do you adapt? Do you make new plans? Do you just shutdown? In the immortal words of Cliff Spab, "Sometimes you just have to say So Fucking What." Remember when we planned shorter more frequent shows? SFW. Remember 1, 2 Reviews? SFW. Remember #140CharacterReviews? SFW. Whew, that feels better. This doesn’t mean that those things aren’t still coming, but "gang aft agley".

On the lighter side, WE’RE BACK BITCHES! Now that feels good. Con season is officially in full effect. Botcon is less than a month away and we get Mattel’s huge SDCC exclusives reveal. Dark of the Moon toys are less than a week away, but of course they are already popping up all over the place. Items thought to never see mass release are showing up on pegs. Finally, May the fourth be with you? It’s with us.

    While you get a lot of stuff via Facebook there is some toy talk on Twitter.

    Let me know if you really want that DCUC/MOTUC 2-pack, I can keep an eye out.

    C6 Down Under? We can only dream.

    No, Open Your Toys isn’t trademarked, but the more we get into it, the more I’m thinking we should.

    Are you sure he’s wrong about Darth Maul? Do you have a specific reference or anything? Not that he provided one.

    The DCUC / MOTUC 2-packs are the “standard” 6″ figures. The DCUC figures are a little smaller than the MOTUC. You can search YouTube for review of the existing ones, Luther/Skeletor or Superman/He-Man.\

    There’s also a Green Lantern/Zodac coming out.

    Just let me know.

    No worries on the list.

    I didn’t do the Arkham figs. I want the Harley Quinn, but more because that is perhaps the hottest costume ever. I have my SDCC AA Batman, but that’s it.

    Let me know about the Young Justice stuff.

    I’m not sure if we get the show or not down here so i don’t know if we’ll see the toys? i hope it’s NOT like “the Batman” tv show back in ‘09 i think it was?
    the toys looked great but i never saw them in stores :(

    so if i don’t see them here i will hit you up for them :)

    thanx man :)
