Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 102: Enough is enough, or is it…

We need your input. If you’re a long time listener, you know my propensity for worrying about long shows. If you’re a recent listener you know we have been doing REALLY long shows. I’m talking 3+ hours. This show in particular is probably our longest ever. I’m a big podcast listener and when I come across shows of this length I just delete them. I know in the past some of our most diehard listeners have said they’re down with long shows. However, that was when we were averaging two hour shows. What say you, the people listening, way too long, just fine, or just shut the fuck up already and talk toys?

Being possibly our longest show ever, we definitely talks some toys. We go in depth on what was confirmed to be the last Botcon, including FunPub’s shut down of TFSource. Could we have gotten one more G.I. Joe Ultimate Gift Set in 2013? All signs point to yes. It seems Matty still can’t make fans happy or possibly everyone just has amnesia. Anti-Enternia He-Man is a CHASE figure people, live with it. Now somethings that are not supposed to be chase figures, but unfortunately will probably end up being so are the next wave of the Walmart exclusive Black Series 3.75 line. While confirmed during this show, they’re actually hitting shelves.

    I’m all about long shows, but I understand why most people don’t dig it. Maybe you could just split it into 2 parts?
    Also, the version of the file I downloaded starts fine, but about 35min in the sound goes mono in the left channel. At 2:07 it returns to normal.

    Hey guys John again, I really loved episode 101! It was cool hearing Mrs McFavorire and her mom on there especially with Mother’s Day apon us. I am going to weigh in on the show length as you are asking for some feedback. The three hours shows are a little tough to get through, It has been taking me about 2-3 days to get through a full episode and I start to loose some interest after about 2 hours. I know there’s not always going to be a ton of news for every franchise you guys cover but the show seems to be very Transformers heavy at times. All in all you guys do a great job and honestly if the show is shorter great, if not that’s fine too. I will still listen no matter what, keep up the great work!!

    @Dan Thanks for the heads up on the technical issue. Vern hopefully should have it fixed soon.

    @John Thanks for feedback John, it really appreciated. I’m going to make a concerted effort to minimally get us back to that 2 hour mark and balance it out it a little. But, by now you know Swage, that guy likes to ramble on about his robits 🙂

    Hey, I can’t help it! There’s actually an overwhelming amount of news that is Transformers-related that pops up every week, let alone between show recordings. I definitely don’t want to strangle the show, lol. There’s just sooooooo daaaaaamn much!

    Thanks for the input, guys! We know Dan rocks the house, and hopefully we can get to know you more, John. We love attention, so always feel free to chime in whenever you want. Cheers, fellas!

    Swage is absolutely right. We’ve always been a little TF heavy due to the tenacity of their news sites. Swage and I will just have to do a better job of curating the massive amount of news. To be fair it is probably my favorite line too 🙂
