Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 103: Change. Now it’s time for change…

Nothing stays the same. Now it’s time for change.

As long time listeners are most likely aware, I’m not the biggest rock enthusiast. I have even made statements to the fact that I don’t necessarily enjoy electric guitars. This is definitely an oversimplification and generalization, but it serves a point. However, there are some groups and songs that will forever live with me, whether it is an especially memorable moment in my life or sometimes just really catchy lyrics. This song by the immortal Crue, serves as both. I find myself singing these same lyrics over and over, primarily because I don’t know any of the other words.

With that said, we still have all the amazing news you have come to expect. Could we have seen almost every new official Hasbro Transformers toy for the next year in one week? Yup, probably so. Will we ever see a MOTUC Snake Mountain? Stay positive. Are we getting new 6 inch Star Wars figures for only $3? Yeah, kind of. Should we support G.I. Joe no matter the cost? Maybe not at this price point.

    Thank you for answering my previous question. Much appreciated!

    However, I got more for you guys. Questions for next episode:

    (1) Do you feel that scalpers and collectors are actually one of the same? Such as… trying to fund their addiction by buying doubles on the pegs and sell the extra to off to offset the first? Are we are own enemies?

    (2) Do you all feel that the distribution has gotten better with Hasbro action figure? Hasbro has made countless of promises to improve distribution during several recently conventions, do you all see any sight of improvement in your ares? or perhaps distribution is really not the issue but scalpers are to blame?

    In my personal opinion, I fell that Hasbro really listen to collectors on which figure they want and producing the more popular figures for us. Online retailers are flooding with them. I think the flood grate has open. See example below:

    Keep up the good work guys!
    See you in the next!

    Great show as always guys. I want to thank you all for answering my questions and giving us fans some great insight. I am not really surprised that Dave is no longer with you guys,to me he never really seemed to be a good fit with the rest of the group. I never cared for his personality on the show,he’s just not my “cup of tea” and I personally won’t miss his presence. With that being said I am very excited to see who you guys will replace Dave with and bring in. Ok on to my questions (1) Do you see the G.I Joe franchise as a failure considering the state it’s currently in, and do you think another toy company could have done a better job at keeping it more relevant and alive. (2) How excited are you guys for Rogue 1 and will you be buying the toys? (3) With Power-Con now over is there any disappointment that no new figure news or Snake Mountain news was revealed? Thanks for all you guys do and as always keep up the awesome work.
