Ep 055 – 23rd December 2014: Featuring a special interview with Play With This Too!

The Repacked Podcast is a weekly podcast about Toys, Action Figures, Dolls, Brick-toys and all that plastic crack that we, your hosts, spend waaaay too much of our hard earned cash on.
In this, the final episode to be released on this side of the new year, we’ve lined up an interview with Play With This Too’s very own Rik Alvarez. Quite awesomely, Rik also shared a special preview with us.

Dear Repacked,
What’s a good toy you would give to a little girl?
Something “girly” or something “girl powery”? Or just a plain good action figure?

Let’s say a 5 – 12yr old. The formative years.
It’s sort of an indirect question to Craig & something I was thinking about after seeing the GoldieBlox commercial. Would you promote “Barbie Girl” traditions, a more modern female empowerment mindset or full on tomboy behaviour? Would certain Figma be good in terms of empowerment?
From Jurry Bakker on FB:
Hi Repackers!
I’ve got a question; I’ve seen the Takara version of LG07 Jet Fire go up for preorder, but It’s way too expensive (€ 74.80, that’s 93,53 Australian). How much better in qc and finish are the Takara versions (It’s pre-order, I don’t think you guys messed with one yet) to the Hasbro versions?
I’d also like the opinions of all Repackers as a listener question!
