Hey there, repackers.

Here´s a Transformers question because I never do one of those.
Imagine, if only for a moment, that we lived in an alternate universe where the Transformers Movies and their Bay-Formers never happened I will give you a moment to let that idea sink in). In this Bay-less earth suddenly decided that yes, Transformers movies are a totally rad idea, which Transformers Toy line do you think would be better suited to be adapted into a live action feature? More specifically, what designs do you think could translate better into “real-life” versions?
Any level of involvement by Shia LeBouf is up to your imaginations.

BONUS CRACK QUESTION: If you could turn your Toy collection into a Broadway Musical, what would you call it? (e.g. Craig´s Toy Collection could be called “Macross: Turn Off the Panties”)
PS: Concerning the Bonus Cracked Question of episode 26, no, i didn´t came up with that question after watching “The Indian in the Cupboard” and doing a line of crack. It was the trailer for “Edge Of Tomorrow”.

Shrouding myself in the darkness of the night,

Listener Question 2 – 00:54:36.210
Hello there, Repackers of the Lost Haul.

Here´s something that occurred to me while listening to your podcast (Because i do listen to it. I swear).
As you are aware of, there is a huge market for adult Toy collectors based on nostalgia; Toys based on old properties like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars, He-Man, Star Trek and many other 70´s and 80’s franchises have become keystones in the toy-collecting world. So my question is, do you think that the franchises from the last 10-20 years would be enough to sustain a nostalgia based market 30 years from now?
Or do you think that once the current generation of collectors die out (presumably after being crushed by their own toy collection) the Adult-Collector Toy market will start to collapse?
I wonder because, with the state of the G.I. Joe line and the existence of the Bay-formers, I find it hard to imagine a future where we have a Toy collecting market NOT entirely composed by expensive japanese plastic.

BONUS CRACK QUESTION: If your life had a soundtrack, what would be the theme song of your Toy collection?
