Show Notes

BATMAN. CATWOMAN. BLACK PANTHER. Ninety minutes, folks. Blake had the most amazing toy day of his LIFE--plus he got the Mondo exclusive BTAS Batman figure recently--and he needs to dish about it like crazy. We're gonna deep dive into a review of this 12" bad boy. And hey...what time period did Batman: The Animated Series take place in, anyway? Because Blake and Adam are going to butt heads over it. Next, Blake went buck wild on some MARVEL LEGENDS BLACK PANTHER WAVE 2 figs, and...a PRICE MIRACLE happened at WALMART. You won't believe your ears. Also: Mezco One:12 Collective Catwoman. Yup, Blake got that today too. And it rules. The boys discuss some...interesting news about MacFarlane toys and the DC license. It's been so long since we did a podcast Blake done nearly lost his voice on this one. But so worth it! Music: More Of That

Crash Test Dummies and Boom, My Forever Pal. Blake surprises Adam with an insane purchase of Funko's DC Primal Age Batcave and figures to boot. Or is it Savage World? Hard to say.

39. BAT-tle of the Bulge

Surprise ahead-of-schedule episode! Adam and Blake get right down to it and dive into Amazon's shameful new holiday catalog.

It's also McDonald's 40th and you know what that means: insane half-articulated Power Rangers toys. PATHETIC. The big to-do in this ep is Blake's early birthday present, Mezco's One:12 Collective Sovereign Knight Batman. Boy is this guy a trip. But what dark secret do his pants hide? Listen to find out!
