This is the part of the podcast where we talk about the latest additions to our collections, what we are currently hunting for or a look back at a figure we haven’t touched in awhile.
John: nothing this week but i pre ordered TW yellow version
Mikey: Movie 1 repaint Armorhide & Storm Surge and MMC Sphinx
Brad: G1 Box series Astrotrain, Takara encore Ironhide and ratchet. Massive thank you to daniel quinlan for the donations to the aug donation drive.
Jason: TFC Book Soundwave + Blitzwing (complete set!), Alternators Decepticharge, SG Wreck-Gar, Cyclonus and Drift, BT Prowl, TFSS Ramjet and a bunch of KO seekers. And Megatron’s rubber ducky.
I’d tune in to hear a chat weighing up the pros and cons of ko’s. Be interesting to hear if you guys have more than the regular “ko’s are good for budgets and customs” or “ko’s are usually poor quality figures” opinion, and go in a little deeper
Thank you for listening, shameless plugs, the week ahead.
NERDMANIA SHEPPARTON (should be an interesting record next week)
