    #78: Transformers 1985 Minibots

    Everyone loves a good Minibot, but something about the tiny Transformers was extra special in 1985! These five are some of the most unusual releases of the era, but they're as charming now as they ever were back in the day, showcasing exactly how to do a small 'pocket money' toy with a sense of flair.

Nostalgia-laden and very informative

It is entirely the fault of this show that my shelf is full again 😉

The mighty Sky Lynx ,

Awesome toy podcast

I found this brilliant podcast via some rather cool Transformers photos on Instagram, and I’m currently tearing my way through all the episodes.
It’s a fantastic podcast on (mainly) Transformers and other toy lines, and I feel I’ve been waiting for a podcast like this for ages. I’ve learnt a lot already from the hosts, who are knowledgable and have a great chemistry with each other.
Even episodes on subjects I thought I wasn’t so interested in have been surprisingly great.
Well worth a listen - highly recommended!

A smashing bunch of lads

Having spent the last couple of decades dipping in and out of the TF fandom this is now my main connection to the hobby. This pod came out of the blocks as a both extremely polished and comfortingly familiar.
I have to listen in chunks as it’s a lengthy beast, but it’s like being amongst friends listening. Also nice to hear a fan lead podcast where the hosts give each other space to talk, without either bombast or talking over each other.
Gwan yerselves.
