Show Notes

NO THIS EPISODE IS NOT JUST ABOUT BEANIE BABIES. Have to make that clear. But our guest, known toy-hater Josh, read a book on the topic (The Great Beanie Baby Bubble) so we decided to talk about collectible bubbles and how they burst. Are your toys really an investment? Are Funko Pop!s the same as Beanies? Listen and find out! (Spoiler: maybe?) Mostly, though, this episode is a free-form comedic exploration of what's on Josh's drunken mind with occasional tangents into his TWISTED political rants, GI Joe, and religion. Also: Toys we weren't allowed to have. Satanic Pogs. The Berenstain Bears go toy crazy. Garbage Pail Kids. Live opening of Trolls blind bags. Warning: Josh says "bitch" SO much. Like a suspicious amount. Original music by More Of That.

Review of Worthy Captain America. Hasbro crowdfunded Cookie Monster and other life-size muppets. Speaking of muppets, are they a "huge turn-off"? Conan O'Brien "legally" marries his Funko Pop!s.

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.
