    • Dan’s VM:
      Hey, how’s it going my favorites, this is Dan from California mates 99 and I just wanted to check in. Love the show and You know, just listen the last episode, actually just finished right before I called and I want to say something real quick, which is that on the inner John armada and cyber try and Transformers front. That’s I, I, personally, I think there’s a lot of crap in those lines mean, at least you know for my taste. But I gotta say that that cyber trying to me stands apart from those. I mean, there’s a lot of really cool pieces. The came out cyber timing when my favorite is the the screen Star Screen. The came out cyber time. And the smaller versions the, Voyager size, that’s, that’s an incredible Tollway But anyway, that’s good stuff and I was at. That’s probably You know the dangers travel that stuff. You know, cool, check out. There’s A Place agendas and there. And you know. Seeing as how you guys cover the 4 major franchises. I think it’s got a cool bit. So, G. I. Joe as bitten sort not exist of for months. Star Wars has been. You Know disappointing for a while and You know, message. The universe is just kinda called along. You know, after all the drama of the sub gate. But. Now all of a sudden we’ve got. The cattle graze school. Of course, the biggest news, the world. The Star Wars Disney merger. That’s incredible in You know, and that you had your movie is eventually going to have to come out and You know we’ll see what happens there. So You know. Really looking forward to, to the near future episodes. Because, I think there’s gonna be a lot of news to You know make. Make Things Happen making spa the transformers they are always kinda hot right now. I’m is huge. Franchise even a lot of us right fans that are closer to it, than others. You know I always have things to complain about. There’s really more going on now and the never. And it’s it’s pretty incredible. I mean that masterpiece sound waves, and can’t wait for that. But, Yeah. So congratulations on the B, MS, and You know, gray show. As always, I just wanted check in and see what’s up. And I’m working on a special project for you guys. It’s nothing major. But I wanted to say publicly so that that okay. Maybe get off my ass and finish it so. Hey guys, anyway. Take it easy. And you know love to stop bye bye bye.
    • AliasAngelAlias: I’m sure you guys heard about Disney purchased Lucasfilm. We would love to hear your opinion about this acquisition. Also the announcement of episode 7 in 2015 and the future outcome of the Star Wars toy line.

      On another topic, I walked in TRU yesterday and was curious as to what type of product toy company trying to get parents to buy for their “daughter.” I noticed the girl’s toy isle are bigger then boy’s section. I also noticed that girls get a bigger selection of big playhouses/playsets for their 10-12″ dolls compare to boy getting playlets. Correct me if I’m wrong… I thought the cost of plastic is up? How come there are so many big playlets for girls? A typical 2.5~3 feet tall doll house cost at around $129 in TRU and the BMF cost $250 and the MTT cost $180. To me, this really doesn’t make any sense, what’s your take? Start shopping for a playset for you little one before price goes up even more in the future. 🙂

      Lastly, I read that selling girl toys are more profitable then toys for boys. Girls toys significantly outperformed the growth in boys by 17% from year over year. Is this a surprise to both of you? Does Mrs. McFavorite had any girl toy lines she collect and would like to discuss with us in the next show?
