27. Shelf Life Holiday Edition: Life-Size 2: A Christmas Eve

It's still Christmas here on Shelf Life! We're only 5 days late! This time we're talking all about a little Christmas toy movie called LIFE-SIZE 2 which may or may not have the subtitle "A Christmas Eve." This movie poses the question, What if a Mattel-type company decided to cancel a Barbie-type doll in favor of something called "video game apps," causing the doll turn human in an attempt to save her own wretched life? Also, a spoiled millenial learns a valuable life lesson or something, and baby boomer writers teach us what they think it means to be woke. Then, we exchange toys in possibly the saddest gift exchange ever captured on microphone. ~Music credits~ -Shelf Life holiday theme song - More of That (moreofthat.bandcamp.com) -Decorated (Yeah It's Christmas Time) - Redwood -Be A Star 2 - Tyra Banks feat. New Fear's Eve ...

16. Foam Tony

MEET BRIAN THE INTERN. I can't believe we never mentioned him before, but he's been here all along, setting up our mics and wiping our asses. We pay the sucker in 'experience'--can you believe that? Anyway, this one's a whirlwind of topics. Adam, the Wine Boi, teaches us how to grift radio prizes. Blake catches up on the Marvel films and there are MAJOR SPOILERS FOR INFINITY WAR and other older Marvel movies so just don't. We talk about the battle for colorful rocks and how this one jerk, Thanos, can suck the joy out of an audience with a snap of his fingers. Also: Toy Journalists, and HOW DO THEY AFFORD ALL THOSE WONDERFUL TOYS??. An evil doll shared universe (and more Chucky). Kingdom Hearts. More beef with busts. PETER DINK. Blake doesn't understand horror movies. What are Scary Dolls? FOAM TONY THE INCREDIBLE LIFESIZE IRON FRIEND ($1300 USD). Jurassic Park toys are back, baby. Chewbacca and Greedo's Buddy Road Trip Comedy (TM--a spec script Adam wrote as an over-imaginative child). BIG BAD TOY STORE IS HAVING A MOTU CLASSICS SALE AND THESE FIGS ARE JUST MUST-HAVES. The 4 quadrants of collecting. And finally...UPCOMING TOYS AND COLLECTIBLES OF NOTE IN PREVIEWS MAGAZINE. Thanks, Diamond Distributors! Again, **INFINITY WAR SPOILERS AHOY** ...
