    #198: Mando On Mando Action!

    This week on The Toy Power Podcast - it's all about what we have been Reading, Watching & Playing - with a very healthy discussion about the first 3 episodes of The Mandalorian Season 2 in the second half of the ep.  But first we reflect on what a tremendous time it is for streaming services, comic books and also new consoles hitting the market!!  Ben is watching a combination of animated films & Thriller TV shows.  Frank talks to the new TMNT Comic -the hype is true!!  Darren promotes the Perry Mason series; it seems to have ties to 2020 in more ways than one!  Trent is reading some retro picture magazines...... & talks at length on Sci-Fi TV and Pokemon!
    Then; quite literally half way through the ep; we kick off our discussion on the first 3 episodes of The Mandalorian!!  *Warning Spoilers ahead!*  We attempt to do an episode-by-episode breakdown; but naturally jump around between eps quite a bit.  Frank throw's in a prediction to the final boss fights we wish to see at the end of Season 2!  Overall, a great around the room discussion on the ways this show continues to impress us!

    #196: The Integrity Of Jem!

    This week on the Toy Power Podcast we are unfortunately down a few members, however, Ben & Darren are joined by Special Guest: Damian aka @Truly_Truly_Truly_Outrageous - Our local Jem & The Holograms expert!!  The 35th Anniversary of the Jem property kicked off this year; and we deep dive into what the is happening to celebrate this milestone event.  Integrity Toys are certainly leading the march with a second wave of Jem products that are just gorgeous in hand!  Listen in & find out how the world has helped get behind this milestone - with makeup, custom outfits, song covers and even signings from the original voice actors!  Damian has brought the first two sets of the Integrity Dolls, released as part of the 35th anniversary into our studio, & we study them quite closely pointing out all their great features they offer - including the environmentally friendly aspects!  Up And Rockin' Set - Jem & Jerrica - flip side gift-set - which utilises a very unique way of swapping between the two alter egos.  As well as the Perfect Match 3pk Set.  These 35th figures are much more show/cartoon accurate in comparison to previous releases; with true attention to detail for this round of packaging including art work & other aspects that hits all the nostalgic areas.  Find out the hurdles one has to jump through to buy these though - join the "W" to enter a lottery to hopefully get a chance to buy these figures?!?!  We also have a general chat around Jem distribution in OZ.  Then we finish off the episode by diving into the Jem universe and find out who in the show sported a moustache?!

    #194: Darren's Distraction!

    This week on the Toy Power Podcast, we have our 'Runsheet' ready to go; and then we are immediately thrown off course with a present for Mr. Darren!  A very welcomed gift from @webstor83.  Our first main topic is around the Masters Of The Universe Origins Toyline.  A healthy discussion around USD to AUD price conversion and what we actually think they should sell for in our market Down Under.  We also do an analysis of what other toylines cost for a good comparison of value for money.  Then we move onto looking at Season 2 of The Boys - *beware*; we do spoil many plot points and such in this review chat.  We talk through many of our standout scenes and of course the new character in the 7 - Storm Front - with her Raiden like Powers And all the shock factors of the series, as well as getting our money worth with Amazon Prime.  Our final segment is another round of: "Would You Rather" ~ some difficult choices made in this game, but very entertaining as always!  In closing out the episode we have a few shoutouts for all the awesome new Patron's whom have joined us recently, as well as The Geek Dudes Podcasts for continuously name dropping us on their shows.  Also, we announce our plans for Movember!  Join us in growing a Mustache and we will have a bit of fun throughout the month with Toys/characters that proudly showcase a Mo!
