SLB Vlog: Do you think that Hasbro will do exclusives for the new GI Joe line? If so who do you want to see as an exclusive? Personally speaking SDCC exclusive set of the Dreadnoks.

Gary Allen: Since Strip Mortal Kombat is rivaling Netflix's Tiger King as the World's most viewed pop cultural sensation, what's the next Social Distancing entertainment idea? Have Worldly Conditions affected Levi's D&D campaign? Will Jed open all his Final Fantasy figures?

Chris Gardner: Any chance of a strip mortal combat rematch?

Tyler Gillett: With the recent release of Doom Eternal and the even more recent "Me Beating The Fuck Out Of That Game." I started thinking about what made the game so great. Not only is the insanely brutal and gory violence a boner owner, I don't think the game would be half of what it is without the crushingly awesome Metal Soundtrack! Jed can attest to how amazing the Doom 2016 soundtrack is, throwback to BackAndForth. What are some of the most memorable video game soundtracks of your time and how important do you think they are to the overall memorable experience of the game? Love the show, stay safe. Dudes wife is still cringy as fuck in that video, Mike.

Brotha Kyle U2 blows. Everyday. Even on Sunday.....Bloody Sunday.

Muhammad Nurullah Will this be a special coronapocalypse episode? Where has Levi been getting the constant fresh supply of memes?

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.

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?

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!!!
