Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 076: SDCC 2012! (Psyche)

Unfortunately this isn’t our Comic-Con episode. Even more unfortunate is we’re not even at Comic-Con. What we are is 3 in about 4 weeks. So that basically means we’re busy as hell. We will do a recap like we always have in about a week. If you wanna hear my initial thoughts I will be doing a SDCC wrap up with Dave and Devall of Toy World Order this Sunday. Meanwhile, Mrs. McFavorite is in full on nesting mode. She painted half the nursery today by herself. Mad props go out to anyone that is painting anything at 8 months pregnant. While we missed The Con this year, we still feel amazing. 4 weeks and counting, then shit will be real for real.

This week is mostly catch up with all the craziness leading up to SDCC. Not a lot news, but ridiculous amounts of sightings and new pre-orders which is about par for the course. With Joecon came The Concept Case. This thing has instigated a lot of discussion and as with all fandoms a good share of negativity. These two Kreon “combiners” kicked off what we would find out at SDCC is basically an amazing new direction for Kre-O Transformers. Star Wars has been a little lack luster as of late, but we have a little more Vintage on the way, but not much else. SPOILER, the first part of 2013 is going to suck. Lastly, Matty had an amazing (in my opinion at least) albeit expensive month. The Griffin, Atrocitus, Green Lion, Horde Prime and Snake Man-At-Arms were superb.

    Hi SlickMcFav and MrsMcFav,

    If I haven’t mention this before, you both have a fantastic voice! Like radio personality perfect, now I wonder what you both look like in person to match your awesome voice box. Will you both there at Celebration VI 2012 this year? You realize that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, and the most famous person out of them all… “Me” going to be at Celebration VI. Haha Hope to run into my favorite couple podcasters.

    I got a few questions for the show, do you think $125 for Mark Mamill autograph is worth it (per item)? If you think so, what one item would you pick to have him sign? If not, please explain to us?

    Another thing about Star Wars, I never actually into the “B-Wing” (Star Wars Vehicle). I never own one in the past as a child but now… I have 2 of them. It is the Kmart Exclusive Vintage Collection B-Wing. I got them both on clearance for just $14.99 each. XD You should totally get one!

    Say SlickMcFav, are you into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle when you where a kid? I just purchase the new Playmates 4″ action figure with 12 points of articulations and those are pretty neat. Aesthetically I like these more then the 6″ version. Although the 6″ version does have 34 POA (points of articulation) which I know you like because you are all about POA. Which version are you going with?

    You know what so funny about your show, is that I’m happy and psych about all the toy news but at the same time I hear MrsMcFav pain of agony. I’m not sure if I should feel fantastic or feel the pain with MrsMcFav about the toy news. What a mix bag of feeling LOL!

    Another great show guys! Keep up the good work and bring in that comfortable chair please haha 🙂

    Thanks AliasAngelAlias!

    I think you’re a little too kind with my voice, but I agree about Mrs. McFavorite’s.

    Unfortunately no Celebration for us this year. We went to Celebration V because we knew there was a good likelihood we either have a kid or be expecting when VI came around. Plus I went to the first one here in Denver in 1999. I figure every 5 Celebrations is a good goal 🙂

    Great questions! Our next show is our Comic-Con round up, but we’ll answer them on the following show.

    Thanks again…Slick
