    #209: Rad Plastic News

    This week on the Toy Power Podcast we bring you all the latest news plus a review of the Rad Plastic Book!!
    But right at the top our list is information about our local Adelaide Comic & Toy Fair.  We have a date!  So please clear your schedule on the 7th of April for another awesome event!  Next up, we have a teaser pic of Hot Toys Bobba Fett as he appeared in the Mandalorian - Dad Bod Bobba?  Staying on that larger-than-life theme - how damn cool are these Muppets from Diamond Select - a beautiful offering of famous characters in their "best of line".  Then flipping the coin between Statue & Action Figure we have a new Mortal Kombat - Spawn Dark Ages, but we are struggling to work out what to call it.....  Onto news from Neca, we are all quite blown away with the Cartoon TMNT Disguise 4pk.  This set really is an ultimate pack; the list of accessories is simply amazing!!   Who doesn't like a good Crossover?  Well it appears that the TMNT / Power Rangers Crossover will be jumping off the comic pages & into plastic form!!  You may want to turn your volume knob down a bit; as Darren gets very excited about the MOTU Revelations listings - but it has the rest of us confused & we simply need to see some pictures of these teased wave listings!  Trailer news is next, & man does the Snyder Cut of Justice League look interesting!!  We talk about some things like 'dream sequences' & 'aspect ratios' that is new news to some of us!  Finally, the Mortal Kombat Trailer has also dropped and it seems like it has exceeded our expectations and calmed our concerns about the film itself.  Then to round out this episode, we take a look at the Rad Plastic book by Chris Fawcett.  This beautiful Art Book dives into the early production pieces and designs from the Original Playmates TMNT Toyline as well as the Next Mutation toyline.  Another fun episode to get your ears around!!  ~ Enjoy!

    This week on the Toy Power Podcast - we have all the latest news to talk about, and believe me, there is a lot to get through!!  First up we have the Fortnite Crossover G.I. Joe.  With a playable Snake-Eyes skin to play as in the game plus an Action Figure - is this the perfect synergy combo?  Then onto the anniversary nobody asked for - the 50th Anniversary of LucasFilm?  - Retro figures of Greedo, Obi-One & Jawa that play beautiful homage to the Original Kenner toys.  There is lots to talk about the Hot Toys Batman Forever figures and damn, do they look good!!  What is this new Maestro Hulk or Cos-Play Santa Hulk all about??  Rob McCallum is at it again with a new Kickstarter in the works - Faking Filmation.  Obviously documenting the efforts of James Eatock & many many others involved in this project.  Living up their name - Super 7 teases us with a massive seven new reveals from different properties!  It started off as a guessing game - but as time went on, more and more news came to the surface around these teases - and some of the exciting plans Super 7 have for them!!  Said reveals include: Run The Jewels - (Hip Hop Group); Star Trek - specifically Next Gen, Godzilla, Power Rangers, Transformers Ultimates or Action Master Ultimates??  The much-anticipated Silver Hawks!  And of course, the discussion breaking the internet at the moment - the massive Thundercats Thundertank.  We dissect all the information we have on hand about each line.  Throw in our 2cents and add some predictions too.  Another fun filled episode that will leave you feeling like we just had a Toy Convention or something similar to digest.

    #206: The Wonder Of Indy!

    #206: The Wonder Of Indy!

    This week on the Toy Power Podcast, we kick it off with a vintage toy retrospective; because we haven't had one of those for so long!?!  This retrospective topic is all about an 80's franchise - an original movie trilogy line - of which the 3rd film was ghosted when it came to the toys!  You guessed it; it's all about the Indiana Jones franchise!  "You call this archaeology?"  Trent puts on his Fedora & cracks the Whip as he speaks in detail about Indy's run with Kenner & then LJN; as well as the more modern run with Hasbro for Crystal Skull.  Yes, we actually go there too!  Was this the defining point of toy companies realising they must work closely with the movie producers?  Where the best toys made & produced or where they may be based on the boring bits?  What parts sharing for Harrison Ford were used between Indy & Star Wars??  Just how damn difficult was it to clear the peg warmers from this line - and did this circumstance actually have a lasting impact on the property for years to come?  Plus listen out for a shout out to a super collector, as well as the cliff-hanger we are dying to resolve on the Plastic Crack Documentary.  For the second segment of the show, we review Wonder Woman 84'.  With its similarities to Batman Returns, questionable CGI aspects, extreme run time & its heart felt morals.  We analyse the wish sequences and the Golden Armour among many other aspects of the film - with a nice DVG rating to solidify our thoughts.  But all in all it's fairly safe to say we all had fun watching it.  "Nothing good is born from lies.  And Greatness is not what you think."  We actually manage to splice in a 3rd segment; a quick around the room show and tell which sees figures from all corners of the market!  Then just as the show is wrapping up; we have a little bit of collecting karma thrown into the mix, that will surely leave you smiling.

Entertaining for the casual or hardcore

I am loving this podcast!

I’m a casual collector and although some of the information goes over my head, the manner in which the cast presents things is very approachable and relatable and it’s always a fun listen.

I’d recommend this to anyone considering starting a collection or even to those who are just interested in having a quick rush of nostalgia and a laugh.

Episodes don’t need to be played in order (I started listening relatively recently) so find a show with a topic or toyline that interests you and give it a go!
