Ep 028 – 17th June 2014 – Dora the Explorer Went to Hell

The Repacked Podcast is a NEW 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.
A little late, but we’re HERE!
The WHOLE TEAM is onboard this week (yep, all 7 of us) and it’s a week of fun and discussion here on the REPACKED PODCAST as we weigh in on Tokyo Toy Fair and other fun news. So recline that chair, break out a drink and listen on to the smooth, dulcet tones of Igadevil and the rest of the team here at THE REPACKED PODCAST!

Editor’s Note: I’m trying a new post-processing for adding chapters and images this week, so please tell me if it’s OK! -Albie

Hey Repackers,

Long-time listener, first time writing in. Love the show, and for the record, I’m a huge fan of the idea that you guys doing something HJU-ish and talking about tokusatsu stuff from time to time. There’s a HJU shaped hole in my heart and something needs to fill it damnit.

Anways, two questions:

1) Of the S.I.C figure line, what’s one figure that each you think improves upon the original design of that character? I’d pick Kamen Rider Stronger.

2) I really dig when you all talk about movies in addition to figures. I know a lot of you weren’t super into the Nolan Batman design, but what do you think of the picture of Affleck as Batman? Good? Bad? Ugly?

That’s all for now.

Or is it?

P.S Lacrox’s commercials are hilarious. More please.

P.S.S Paul…Rider Break man, what the hell???!! It’s bad enough HJU’s podcast is seemingly gone, then you have to kick us all while we’re down! For shame sir, for shame.

Toys A Hoy,

Dear Repacked,
Aesthetics vs Articulation.
Which is more important to you, and at which point, does one override the other?
For instance, you find a Justice League Unlimited toy that is super accurate to the show, but has only 5 points of articulation. Or conversely, you see an old Marvel Legends figure, which has loads of articulation, but the figure is riddled with visible cuts and joints. For arguments sake, let’s say this ML figure also has one of the derpier faces.
What’re your minimum requirements? What’s your ideal balance?
For me, I need at least 8 points of articulation (swivel&hinge or ball) shoulders and hip, and hinged elbows and knees. And ideally, the eyes are not derpy (unless it’s Derpy).
Toy-ota Avanza!

From King – 00:59:23.020
Dear Repacked,
LEGO movie was full on LEGO, but I need more toy stories.
Which company should follow LEGO’s suit? Which toylines would you like to see displayed or appear in cameo. Which toyline should the main hero and villain be from?
Toy-ota Avalon!
