Show Notes

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.
