Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 106: Together Everyone Achieves More…

Last time we talked about doing shit. Well no matter how much stuff you can get done it doesn’t compare to working with a team. However, that team only works if everyone pulls their weight. There’s nothing worse than when you depend on people and they drop the ball. At least when it’s just you, you only have yourself to blame. You’re able to control what does and does not get done. The most frustrating thing about a team, is you never know who’s going to show up, physically or metaphorically. People are going to do them, good or bad, and that’s all there is to it.

This show is dominated by SDCC. We know that was almost a month ago, but hey, when have we ever been timely. For Transformers, the little Gnaw was the belle of the ball. For Masters the big news is Classics being taken over by Super7. Pixel Dan gets the scoop on what this means. For Joe at least there were some display cases. For Star Wars it wasn’t much better, but at least we get some cool Black Series 6″ stuff.

    I just finished episode #106 and you guys did a bang up job as usual. I really enjoyed all the SDCC coverage, you guys really cover everything as a fan I care about about and to get it all at one place is the reason your my #1 go to cast.I see there was no Roger for 2 consecutive shows? It sounds like you guys are getting a little peeved as to his whereabouts as I can only assume that’s what the show discription is referring to. If I’m wrong about that I apologize. I have a couple show questions for you boys (1) With Super seven taking over masters are you going all in with the classics and vintage style figures or will you cherry pick? (2) Do any of you guys have insurance on your collections? I have often thought about insuring mine but it’s such a daunting task. (3) Are any of you guys sports fans? Football is about to start and I was curious if any of you do fantasy football.

    It’s kind of a combined poke at Roger, Mrs. McFavorite and the team I manage at work. It’s been a little rough around the horn for people I depend on lately.

    Thanks for questions John!

    Can’t wait to tackle them on the show brotha…Slick

    Greetings fellas. I had a few questions about KO’s. I’ve been debating for a long time if I should pick up some Transformer G1 KO’s on Ebay. Do you guys have any tips for a newb like me? Also are there any G.I. Joe, Star Wars or Masters of the Universe KO’s out there? I would really like to have the toys and packages just like how I saw them back in the stores in the 80’s. But I don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars for them. And do you think Hasbro would re-release the old school 80’s toys again? Thanks for all the great work on the shows. Your my #1 action figure podcast by a county mile.
    P.S. If you remember I wrote into the show a while back and I don’t want to disappoint you guys but I’m a guy not a girl. My name can throw people off for sure. My dad’s name is Kerin so I guess he wanted to curse me also 🙂

    from Kass.

    The podcaster you’re thinking of is diecast from radio free Cybertron. He’s the dude with the Camaro that went to the 3P thing and raved about that Megatron.

    @Kass Thanks for the question, we spoke about at it great length off air as Vern is headed down that path. We would be more than happy to share our experiences. And our apologies for the name confusion, that is very 20th century of us old fucks.

    @Dan I always get those two mixed up. My two favorite TF casts and probably my two favorite cohosts due to their opposing positions to the rest of the cast. Thanks for the clarification! P.S. How was my sound, better? Worse? It has an EQ so I can make adjustments. It sounded a little bass heavy.

    I thought it sounded fine! More bass more better.

    Everyone Sounded Fine to me too.
    The only nick pick I have is, these episode needs to come out very single week haha I’m kidding Slick. I know it takes a lot of time and effort. 🙂

    Question 1 – How do you guys feel about these figures coming back again?

    Question 2 – Lately I have been thinking if I should replace my X-Transbots Apollyon, my question… which one is your MP size Megatron?
