Show Notes

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? More topics: Turmoil In The Toybox returns. Was Optimus Prime saved? Ass Ventura: Crack Detective. Action Figures in the Attic. The Ballad of Lars Framness. The risk of getting Mutt. Eeyore and Peter Cullen. Michael Bay garbage movies. California Raisins. The armor of God. Tongue in Chic/Sheikh. High Beams & Cockpits. Game: Backcard Bios! **SPOILERS for Transformers: The Movie (1986) Our podcast now has a catchphrase: ONE. MORE. PUNCH. Special guest: Josh Arnett
