from Julian Barrett:
Hey there my repacked brothers (and sometimes sisters), I have a few questions for the lot of you.
I know America has similar laws on importing gun toys, but I am unclear on how it works? Can you, in australia, import something like hegemon, that is packed in figure form, be imported? Or is it still a no go for you guys? To be clear, I’m not sure if it is okay to import here in America either.
Also, I am wandering when each of you turned your collecting from a hobby, into a lifestyle?
Late congrats on 50 eps, wish the best of luck to Nikki, and further more, to all of you, love the show, keep up the great work.

From Andy Bentley
Listening to ep 52 and the TFC Ironhide is being dismissed because he has to be “on the Masterpiece list”. To reiterate my point:

“Takara is averaging ~3 characters a year with a heavy reliance on reuse of mold. At this pace, it would take over 20 years to produce the characters from the G1 line from 1984-85. They’ve showed no signs of increasing production, in fact they’ve lost one of the top designers. RID and live action movies are Takara and Hasbro’s main priority. If fans are looking to have a robust Masterpiece collection, someone’s going to have to pick up the slack. ”
