33. Fight The Forces Of Satan, Lindsay

Blake is back from vacation with an Extreme Power Pharaoh Warrior (classic toy) which was apparently meant to battle the devil. We're also talkin' new X-Men Marvel Legends waves and Mondo Exclusive TMNT figures. Plus, a discussion of our toy GRAILS. What is a grail and what isn't? (Muppets and Super Powers Batman are totally grails). Special guest Jessica joins us once again to talk McDonald's toy nostalgia, because everyone needs a nugget friend. She also plays a new game with us called DITCH OR DISPLAY and it's an instant Shelf Life hit. Basically, we're Marie Kondo-ing our figures, and you won't believe what DOESN'T spark joy.

14.5. Blake and Jessica Present: Joan Cusnack

Blake comes up with a pun so great he has to name the episode after it. ALSO: WE HAVE A THEME SONG. WE HAVE A THEME SONG. WE HAVE A THEME SONG. "Shelf Life" original theme music written by Josh Head (a different Josh) and performed by More Of That (www.moreofthat.bandcamp.com). ...
