Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 012: How do you spell marathon? O P E N Y O U R T O Y S C A S T

Okay, now it’s getting recockulous. It seems we cannot do a show that is less than an hour and a half. Let alone get this runaway talk train under an hour. Mrs. McFavorite has also proclaimed that we are no longer allowed to record during the week. Combining working out, eating dinner, a little drinking, then spending a few hours recording, makes for a slightly grumpy Mrs. McFavorite. Add on a crash like with Grab Bag this week, and BOOM, only recording on the weekends. Will this make us more regimented or will we succumb to the draw of movies, TV, gaming and the plethora of other distractions that weekends were made for? Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, back at the Hall of McFavorite, we yap about the last Botcon figure, ThunderClash, SW questions and answers, even more Animated, and is that ROC: Cobra Commander? Really? Really? The Masters of the Universe Classics are flying off the virtual pegs. Lastly I actually physically drool over another man’s junk. That’s right, I’m comfortable with toyuality.

All the cool kids are subscribing to podcasts (not necessarily ours). Don’t you wanna be cool? Come on, it’s easy. Really, you’ll like it. Try it just this once. All you have to do is subscibe to the RSS or check it out at iTunes. Of course if you’re still scared, just download the .mp3 (.mp3 52.6MB) if you want to. I’ll tell you this though, you gotta at least check out the show notes. Come on, you wanna be cool don’t you?

Peer pressure will be with us, always…Slick

    I’m prepared to do something that no man, woman or bot has ever done before…I’m about to do a review on all of the Botcon 2009 figures eventhough I’m about a month and a half away from having them in my possession. Wait a minute, no I’m not. That would be like rating a restaurant experience without going to the restaurant. But wait another minute, if you’ve been to one Golden Corral haven’t you been to them all? (Vomiting from past experience of where I nearly vomited)

    Gasp! Can’t compare Golden Corral to Botcon figures though. Botcon figures are like those hidden little Mom & Pop restaurants you find in the back alleys of major cities where the food is to die for! I think the famous prophet Wayne Cambell once said: “They will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine.” Guess we will all have to wait till then.

    Ok switching GEARS to Cobra Commander and the debacle that will be the GI Joe movie. Folks, the only reason to watch this movie for the most part is going to be the Crouching Snake Eyes / Hidden Storm Shadow effect. Another reason would be, could be and should be, a Baroness strip tease. Argh, but as professional nerds, face it, we can’t combine Toys & Provocative Girls. We just can’t, it’s against our DNA.

    And speaking of Provocative Girls…could this really be the news of the century? THE REAL ARCEE WILL FINALLY BE BROUGHT TO LIFE!?!?!? It’s going to take the better part of 30 million solar cycles to figure out why the heck Hasbro never made the original Arcee to begin with back in the G1 days. I think this Animated version of her will do her justice. Hey if you guys wanna count that Purple Rain/Motorcycle Thing Movie Figure as a real version of Arcee, be my guest… Disclaimer: Please do not take the following sentence literally or I will be hauled off to jail for lewd conduct: “I CANNOT WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON ARCEE!”

    Oh, and in closing, a Star Wars Crossover review briefed. Long, long, ago, in a Galaxy Far, Far, Away, I saw these figures sitting on the shelves. I stopped, stared, laughed, then cried. 20 trips to Toys R Us later I said to myself, “Sabertron, you love Transformers & you love Star Wars. Now you can have both of them together like some sort of a weird Toy Cereal. Buy them, buy them.” I placed about 5 of them in my shopping cart. I proceeded to do my normal raid on the Transformers shelves, but as usual, I had every figure displayed because Toys R Us refuses to restock (but that’s another story for another day.) So I proceed to the checkout aisle when I noticed something wrong with the Crossovers figures. They sucked. I did a double take on them and they still sucked. In some sort of an angry way, I grabbed the figures and hurled them at kids who were prancing in the store from ages raging from 2 to 10 years old. I’m not sure what the finally tally of cas!
    ualties were, but there was blood everywhere. Long story short, to this day, I have not bought any Crossovers, and I’m still running from the law.

    Anywho, I’m off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Ahhhhhhs.
