Show Notes

Hey it's somewhere near our two-year anniversary of the podcast and we forgot to mention that--but have a cool new episode anyway! This time we visit Blake's Blockbuster Zone, a hot new movie podcast-within-a-podcast. Some great summer films about toys out there y'all. Warning: TOY STORY 4 TOYLERS. Also... 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. Which toy would you marry? GLOW IN THE DARK figures! Including MOTU's Scareglow, Swamp Thing, Ghostbusters, Homer Simpson, and more! Mini Brands Chase Pez. WHAT WAS YOUR WOODY? 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. Don't toy shop drunk. And finally, BLAKE BUYS A TOY LIVE ON AIR!

9. The Toys That Made Us 1: Wet Barbie

This episode is the first half of our coverage of Netflix's "The Toys That Made Us" docuseries, discussing Star Wars and Barbie toys. Straight off the top I want to apologize for referring to Batwoman as Batgirl (or allowing Josh to do so). Special guests(!): Jess and Josh. Bullet points: Definition of toyetic. Barbie fucks. Josh's sign from God. Wet Barbie. Wine spill. George Lucas declined to be interviewed for this podcast. ...

37. Mattel's DC Farewell Wave: An Hour Of Toy Reviews

It's that time--that's right, time to discuss the finer points of Fortnite Figures. McFarlane or Jazwares, take your pick. And what's up with gun accessories these days, huh? Ryan's World and other youtube trash toy tie-ins discussed also. You'll heal plenty of whisky-jangling sound effects from Blake as he discovers an Old Millenial from the 1930s character he never knew he had in him. Adam collectors his favorite Saturday Morning Cartoons ... in Mezco 1:12 Collective form! Blake does a loooong and upsetting superhero costumes rant. Blake also gives Adam and the listener some much needed lessons in toy photography and the art of posing. PLUS: Shelf Life reviews the entire Killer Croc wave AKA Mattel's farewall wave for DC Multiverse. This one gonna go out with a bang, folks, thanks to America's favorite Butler and his friends. CORRECTION: I am SO sorry I said "Tim Grayson" at one point. ANOTHER CORRECTION: We talk about the discovery that KGBeast appeared to be made from BAF parts, but failed to realize he's almost certainly a repurposed Lobo. Blake doesn't remember the movie Batman Forever in the least. Music by More of That. Stream us. Brought to you by the AUX podcast network. ...

40. TTMU: TMNT

Our Netflix's THE TOYS THAT MADE US coverage is back and we're talking about everyone's favorite green turtle karate boys--The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! (By PLAYMATES). We also introduce a new, permanent host to the show: Blake's Soundboard. Also, Josh is here again. Head to the sewers with us and discuss the Toiletest Humor. Bring down the house with our piping hot Eugene Levy clips. Why is April O'Neil so dumb looking? Why does Blake cackle himself hoarse in this one? Really, you can hear it, so sorry about that. You know we're gonna talk #toiletgate AND #puppetgate. Josh will Ninja Rap his ass off. Also: Nostalgia vs original IP, Adam's NECA TMNT Target quest for Bebop and Rocksteady, Parasite (the movie), Ace Duck, NECA Ambassadors, NO TURTLE ON THE SHELF. Intro music PARODY by Blake Walker. Outro music: "Turtle Power" by Partners in Kryme (which is infinitely superior to Ninja Rap). Brought to you by AUX Audio Enterprises. ...
