SLB Vlog: Remember back in the day the GI Joe figs has accessory packs? Like it was just a couple guns and what not on a blister card. Am I the only one that thinks it’d be cool if they did that again with this new line of 6 inch GI Joe figures? And fuck you Rob Liefeld.

Gary Allen: Share your favorite Toy Show or Comic/Collectible Convention Memory!! NOT as a vendor, but an attendee, what was the event or scenario that got you interested in attending?

Dustin Hayward: Do you think the new 6" Gijoe line will be more like The Black Series (with mostly unique sculpts and more paint) or Marvel Legends (with a lot of reused parts)?

Brotha Kyle: What do you guys think of the evidence that Marvel Legends are going up 50% to $30 a pop. Personally I don't know if I buy it 100%. There was some pictures of price tags but nothing to indicate it was a US Target. And Gamestop has always been more expensive and they seem to be circling the tank so I can see them trying squeeze out every dollar they can. Are people panicking for no reason? Also is Mike going to stop collecting Legends now? Sorry for the long question. Go Birds and Bards.

Adam Urban: Does your significant other get mad at you if you came home with a new toy on V day

Dors: What’s up guys, checking in from Englandshire.. Hope you’re all happy and healthy.
With the recent trend in QC issues on Takara MPs (not in every case but a lot) like parts breaking on hound and paint issues with MP44 etc as well as the steadily increasing price, how do you see the future for official Takara MP’s and collector’s appetite to stick with the line?
When I started collecting I never thought I’d be spending more on third party than official MPs but here we are.
Shout out to the whole gang.... FUJB

02:42:25 - Listener's Questions:

Dakota Rabörn: If rumors are true, it seems we're getting more weird 80s + Transformers crossovers ... What's a potential crossover you do want to happen, and what's a potential crossover you don't want to happen?
Like I didn't at all care for GB+TF.
And I really don't care about Terminator+TF or BTTF+TF... Like none of these crossovers do it for me. Honestly it seems like the only TF crossovers I like is with other Hasbro brands like Rom, MASK, Micronauts, & GIJoe. Anything else just seems dumb.

Tyler Gillett: In your heart if hearts, do you really think MASK, Rom or Micronauts are worth the money in investing in to try and make popular again? Think back to when they were out and how long they actually lasted.
Personally, I'm a fan of series like Street Sharks and Mummies Alive! But I know for certain that if they ever tried to breathe new life into those series/franchises, it'd fall flat on its face. Case and point? Look what they did to the Reboot reboot. Also, this is the question we asked on Stasis Lock and we'd like to extend the question to you guys. How important is shelf uniformity to you?
Can you stomach mixing up different franchises on one shelf without being worrying that it's a mess? Or are you like me being all pro segregation when it comes to different franchises?

Gary Allen: Taking a 12 hour Road Trip that includes yourself and THREE other passengers... who do you pick? They can be friends or real life acquaintances OR include famous celebrities, athletes etc... but they must be REAL PEOPLE. Not his / her characters portrayed in media...

Lee Alex Aitken: Hey guys! Just wanted to say loved 10shots and bots! But I must say, it seems to me Levi was the King this time round! Well done on all the hard transformations great show indeed. That was a fantastic episode and well done mike on all the barfing and editing of the video.....what do you have in store next? Ok fine I have a suggestion....what about Jed doing a solo version? Or maybe Jefferson could be doing it with Jed? Surely Jed is game???

SLB Vlog: You get to pick one live action movie. You have to keep one human actor. The other characters in the movie have to be replaced with muppets. What movie do you pick? And I feel I have t said this in awhile but FUCK YOU ROB LEIFELD!!
Mike Tinnel: question......did she lick it before she put it in ????

Adam Urban: Whats the weirdest request from your fans...if it tops mine ill share the information

Brotha Kyle: A lot of people good on G2. And rightfully so. Some of those figure were U-G-L-Y you ain’t got no alibi. But there were some cool ones as well. I always liked Laser Optimus. Sideswipe was cool. And I liked green tank Megs. My question is what do you guys think are some cool looking G2 bots. Go Birds. Fuck J. Clownie.

Nathaniel Armstrong: What do you believe are the three things are you known for amongst friends, family, and co-workers today? How would you change that answer for one year from now?

Jason Brehn: Will Levi ever take responsibility for purchasing a figure without doing his homework on whether or not it's a piece of shit?

Gary Allen: So last show I asked about your top fictional "ride," (and yes, ANY vehicle besides the BTTF Delorean was fair game...). So, for this round, name your top choice of a fictional, "animal companion," organic or mechanical... I'm pretty old school myself and would go with Junkyard from GI Joe or Panthor from MOTU (although he did just sleep a lot on the show)...Who would you choose and why? I'm wagering that Levi Curry chooses "Uni" from D&D!!!!!!
Allan Grant: Hey boys, So have you ever been clipped in the nuts ?
While back I was walking behind a mate, he was carry a pair of boots and I got too close.
Man I laid down so fast🥴😅
Tyler Gillett: I know D&D makes the vagine machine to dry for ol Mikey Mike, but what about a table top game that incorporated more painting miniatures and focuses more on stats and strategy and less on a fictional narrative that sees women's vaginas dry up and sneeze dust from the Sahara?
What about a game like Warhammer 40k? Or even Warhammer Age Of Sigmar? Shit, theres even the Games Workshop Middle Earth game. How nerdy is too nerdy for table top RPGs for you, Mike?
Adam Urban No shout out just showing some love to you guys and a wonderful show....keep it up and this bud is for you!!!

John Hangen: As episode 100 comes closer and closer, do you guys plan revamping the opening of the show with updated quotes? Or do you guy still plan on keeping it the same and using the older ones?

Dors: Hey how’s it going Mike, Jed and Levi, You’re slowly getting closer to your 100th episode, if you continue to upload at the current rate by my calculations that will be July 2020... can we expect something special for the big 100th?
Also... how do you imagine your Transformers collections will look by this point? Do you think you’ll have pretty much everything you want and you’ll be close to finishing your collections or is that still a long way off? Can you ever see yourselves “complete and finished” If so, what next? Do you close the curtain on your collections and move on to something else or do you continue to replace the older figures with the new and improved versions if companies still keep making them?
Hope you had a blast at retro con, Mike and Vanessa your costumes looked awesome. Shout out to all the family in the extended BSU (Blackout & Shout Universe) including all the four legged ones...Oh and err.. FUJB

Tyler: Can you ask Vanessa if Mike is okay? Also, is nostalgia what drives your collection or are you in it for the love of toys? I got to thinking earlier this week about the types of figures I collect and the reasons behind it. It's from Nostalgia that I collect Beast Wars, but I've discovered an affinity for many new lines from different fictions like Gears Of War, Starship Troopers and those new JoyToy figures that are made in the spirit of the Titanfall games. Are there any newer franchises that interest you enough to collect them or is it strictly a hobby reserved for nostalgia? Love the show, even you still Mike.

Jared Bell: What's the weirdest thing that you collect or have in your collection? Can also be one thing that you bought don't need to be something you collect.
Fuck Sheetz!! Wawa for Life!! Go Birds!!
