Shelf Life - A Collector's Podcast
20. The Toys That Made Us: Transformers
What is a Transformer? These three turd boys sure as hell don't know. This TWENTIETH EPISODE also serves as our one-year anniversary AND the conclusion of our Toys That Made Us coverage (until they make new ones). Our hosts were too dumb to figure out Transformers in their youth so they were stuck with working class figs like GI Joes. At some point we go waaaay deep into childhood and ex-wife trauma as we soul search for the real reason behind our toy-buying addictions. This episode...SHELF LIFE. GETS. REAL. 2/3 of us are in therapy. Also, why do some children (and adults) lie pathologically, especially about toys?
