Thanks to the very generous folks at DC Collectibles, Craig was sent some of the awesome new upcoming Batman the Animated Series figures. With SDCC happening and a lot of busy shows ahead, Sal and Craig st down for a special extended look at 5 of the Upcoming new figures!
Kyle’s running the show this week, so please be patient. We enter the Fortrex, Albie gets Defensive, Vince is metal and Craig broke the bat. Also. Questions from listeners. We need them as we answered some. 😀
HY-DOJA here. So it’s been awhile since i’ve written. First off i’m enjoying the new format. It’s a little late but congrats on 100 episodes, now for toys. I’ve been collecting a lot of MLP and Monster High vinyls and Shopkins as of late. However with the second rebranding of the Marvel universe line into Marvel legends 3 3/4 inch I hope that retailers will be confused and stock them again.
On the Gi Joe front i’ve been able to acquire the 50th line at retail thanks to the Toys R Us on the abandoned side of town but still looking for Gung Ho pack. Speaking of Joe, what do you think of the possible death of the Gi Joe collector club? I feel like the club has put out the best figures and the thought of losing it would really hurt the line and the fandom. Also in connection with that question, what do you think of Hasbro’s shared universe idea (Gem, Gi Joe, Transformers, Micronauts etc)? Anyway that’s what i have for now.
TOYS AHOY HY-DOJA
IVANHOBE’S EMERGENCY CRACK QUESTION
If TV network executives realized that Toy collectors are the next BIG thing on sitcoms and decided to cast you as the leading man in a Brand new TV comedy, which toys from your collection would you cast as:
A)Your best friend, B)Your Love Interest and C)Your wacky neighbor?
Welcome to Part 2 of our Toy Fair 2016 coverage! On this half, the team covered the DC Collectibles Batman Animated Series extravaganza, complete with BatwingPLANE gushing before moving on to Transformers with SPECIAL GUEST Ben Yee of bwtf.com as he went through some of the awesome things he saw IN PERSON at the show over the weekend. Finally, we round it off with some NECA Alien and Predator coverage, the crazy sculptwork of the people at Storm Collectibles and round it all off with some LEGO discussion.
Please note that this episode’s show notes were put together with the help of Ben Yee and we took special care to section off the transformers into character specific mini galleries to aid YOU, the listener in following through our discussion. See Ben’s original Facebook gallery here! Thanks again and ENJOY!

In the second part of our sort-of Christmas show, we stumble through a deluge of Civil War Hot Toys figures, take a gander at some Ghostbusters, then wonder why flight stands can’t hold planes.
I want to believe, we admire Lara’s accessories, try on fire proof batsuits, then admire anime hair and machinegun arms, Firefly veterans and get sucked in by Nexo Knights.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas, folks!

LISTENER QUESTIONS from:Branden date:Sun, Nov 8, 2015 at 9:41 AM Subject: Toy changes
Hey Repacked crew
Congrats on 100 episodes and thanks for having me on. On to the question, let’s say a super force came and said, you are allowed to change one line of toys into anything you like. However in return you lose one line you like forever. What line would you change and what about it? And what line would you give up? Here’s to 200 episodes
