shoutouts from this episode were: Springboro Hobby and Action Figure Fanatics.

text notes:

Clutch was revealed via Nerdrahtio on time while I was behind on editing,this podcast should have come along with it. Expected to be open window boxed or classic closed box , but obviously won’t be a blind box.

Want to get a non chase Baroness?  Will red or blue do ?

No official announcements, but keep an ear out for Thundercats as it is a very strong possibility. (Update, thundercats ARE happening!)

Due to licensing TLS does not have the rights to do vehicles for TMNT and it’s not likely they can do playsets either. Tell playmates you want them to be allowed to!

Upcoming figs are designed to be workable with their vehicles and animals, and while it may not be true for the turtles you should be able to get a Joe on battlecat or he-man in your vamp.

Power Ranger wave 2 will still be MMPR, still working on how to get the individual zords to combine!

BONUS UPDATE: Jonathan Cathey has confirmed Street Fighter will have knee articulation and “be like Joe”

Many questions where from the TLS OFFICIAL FB GROUP which you can (and should) join HERE.

(full disclosure, Sam is an Admin in the official TLS group and started that after our interview with Jonathan Cathey)

The Dish on the upcoming SDCC and Hastings The Loyal Subjects Action Vinyls exclusives (TMNT, Transformers, Power Rangers)

The Loyal Subjects Official Facebook group  has revealed a ton of images of the upcoming Exclusives in their action vinyls lines. (CLICK THAT AND JOIN FOLKS, it’s full of great stuff and gets news first, it’s closed for those of us who don’t like public groups too!)

First up lets look at their pile of SDCC Loot (minus one turtle set)

Metalic Rita and Pink ranger, Yellow Constructicons, Buzzsaw and transparent frenzy, an opened package TF and 3 rangers, and not just the TMNT box set shown (that’s battle damaged) but another one too !

 

Winner of the SDCC stuff in my mind. May actually be my favorite exclusive from the entire show this year.
