Open Your Toys Cast – Episode 114: Procrastination…

Why do I do this every year? I mean EVERY year. That’s not an exaggeration. Every year Mrs. McFavorite and I say next year will be different. Next year we WILL be done with Christmas stuff by now. Yeah, we literally just started. Now luckily I’m done with presents at least for Lil’ Miss and Mrs. McFavorite. Imagine that, I’m done with the shopping part, however it’s everything else. This includes decorating both inside and out, the ridiculous amount of care packages we do for family and friends and of course good’ole traditions like Santa. As we talk to others, it’s the same situation. Is it all just part of the risk/reward of the holiday season? Is it laziness? It doesn’t seem like it’s that hard, but yet year after year we all do it. Well maybe with the exception of a few over achievers. You know who you are. When will the insanity end? Does this add or detract from the season for you? I’m sure some thrive on this. For the McFavorites it’s pure hell.

It doesn’t get much more hellish than the Transformers 5 trailer. Can we please end Bay’s run, please? At least Matty’s run is ending, but man they too are going out with a bang, in a bad way. Star Wars at least has what we hope is a shining light coming out this week in Rogue One. Unfortunately, much less exciting and the only Joe news is the most likely disappointing Hasbro Cinematic Universe.

Next year WILL be different…Slick

    Hello Guys, Hope you all are enjoying this fantastic holiday season. The other day, I was thinking the the word “nostalgia” from a conversation I had with Mr. Slick and… …why do we buy expensive toys to get our nostalgia kicks? We can certainly get this feeling from an old song/music, movies, and even from an old book. Why spend hundreds of dollars on toys to get this nostalgia feeling? mp3 80’s music and old movie downloads definitely don’t cost that much to get this feeling. Your thoughts gentlemen. Peace! 🙂

    I wanted to post a few things about the Star Wars 6 inch black series or rant maybe 🙂 I really like this line a lot. But my biggest complaint is the face apps/painting/deco or whatever you want to call it on the human characters. After I saw the Luke A New Hope figure I got a little Fett up (see what i did there?). I finally broke down and bought my first SH Figuarts figure. The Luke A New Hope figure. I really like the face sculpt/deco compaired to the black series. And those pajama robes on the black series really turned me off. The Figuarts figure is just sculpted and looks a lot better imho. I wanted to get all yours opinions on the face decos on the 6 inch line. Would you pay a little extra to have said face decos look better. I still feel a little regret for spending all that money on a Figuarts 🙁 Sorry for the long rant and keep up the great podcasts!
