    Episode 16: Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond and Spawn Kickstarter Follow-Up

    Episode 16: Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond and Spawn Kickstarter Follow-Up

    Hey Everyone! New episode coming at you and it hasn't been two months! You can't see it but we are patting ourselves on the back for this achievement. This was a really fun one- it isn't in the title but Noah has a great story about an encounter he has at Target and Carl reveals he used to be into yo-yos. After running off the rails, we talk about Wizards of the Coast's announcement of bringing in different intellectual properties into the Magic: The Gathering game such as Lord of the Rings and Warhammer 40K. Then, we talk about our thoughts of the Spawn figure from McFarlane Toys' Kickstarter and give our thoughts on it as a whole.

    Episode 15: Batman 89 Comic Series and Super7 TMNT Ultimates Wave 5 Discussion

    Episode 15: Batman 89 Comic Series and Super7 TMNT Ultimates Wave 5 Discussion

    Hey everyone, new episode here and we are going to try and release more frequently ( albeit a little shorter length.. but size dosed matter right?) on a roughly twice a month schedule. This is on a trial basis so we will see how the first month shapes up and go from there.







    On this episode we talk about the recently revealed Batman 89 comic book series that will continue the "Burtonverse" after the events of Batman Returns. Then we talk about how we are super excited for the Batman Forever Hot Toys figures and how Robin's cloth is crazy huge on that figure. Lastly, we talk about Super7 teasing the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates Wave 5 figures and make a guess at the 4th figure reveal. At the time of the recording it hadn't been revealed so feel free to laugh at how wrong we are about of opinions! Thanks to all of you that have subscribed and feel free to reach out to us on our socials or email.

    Episode 14: Recent Action Figure Pickups and Marvel Trading Card Explosion

    Episode 14: Recent Action Figure Pickups and Marvel Trading Card Explosion

    Hey Everyone! This episode is a bit more casual than usual. Noah and Carl discuss their recent action figure acquisitions and talk about how everything collectable it going crazy on the secondary market, particularly the old Marvel trading cards we used to have as kids. I guess we are at that age now where everything we used to enjoy and now take for granted is worth tons of money?







    In this episode, I talk about a Youtube channel that I found really interesting regarding the Marvel trading card boom and couldn't remember the name. The name of the channel is NE Ohio Sports Cards and here is the link to the channel:

    Thanks to you all for listening and we are hoping we can get a consistent rhythm to our releases but no promises. This podcast is a passion project but it takes a back seat when life starts to complicate things.

    Episode 13: Exploring Hot Toys, Three Zero and other 1/6 Scale Figures, Descent: Legends of the Dark

    Episode 13: Exploring Hot Toys, Three Zero and other 1/6 Scale Figures, Descent: Legends of the Dark

    Hey Everyone! We are still alive- we have been pretty busy so we apologize for the delay in episode releases but the good news is that we should be free and clear for a more stable release schedule. Thank you all for your continued support!







    This was a really fun episode to get us back into the groove. The first thing we cover is how we stumbled onto Toy Story Erotic Fan Fiction and even have a clip of our zoom call where we discovered this crazy piece of "literature". After that, we discuss how our collecting habits have started to snowball into collecting 1/6 scale figures and how we probably need professional help to kick this nasty habit.







    Lastly, we discuss Fantasy Flight Games' new upcoming completely app-driven game Descent: Legends of the Dark and how our original argument about it almost ended our friendship! ( Not really but we were mad at each other for a day or two). We discuss why it is different from other games and what you should know before you purchase.







    Thank you all again for all of the support through out this dumpster fire of a year and we are really excited for 2021!

    Episode 12: Hasbro PulseCon Favorites and HeroQuest ReLaunch

    Episode 12: Hasbro PulseCon Favorites and HeroQuest ReLaunch

    Hey Everybody! Sorry that this episode is a little later than normal but we have a great lineup this time around. First, we share a story from one of our fans where he recounts an over-spending story for us and we discuss our thoughts. We also answer a fan question as well as open it up for you to send us questions that we can answer on the podcast in the future.







    Our first Makor topic is our thoughts of Hasbro's recent PulseCon event where they held online panels to unveil their new toys from all of their various brands. We cover some personal stand-outs from Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars, Transformers, G.I Joe, and others. Of course, there are plenty of hot takes to go around.







    After covering all the toys, we discuss one of our favorite games, HeroQuest and the upcoming reprint that Hasbro launched as a crowdfunding campaign. This game is near and dear to Noah's heart and as such, he has some strong feelings about this and we unpack it all. The campaign as successfully funded and will be running until November 2020 so head over to their site and support if it is something that is for you!

    Episode 11: Pokemon Battle Academy, D&D Adventure Begins, SDCC, Power-Con

    Episode 11: Pokemon Battle Academy, D&D Adventure Begins, SDCC, Power-Con

    Welcome to Episode 11 of Play With It Podcast! On this episode, we cover a lot of ground. First, we talk about some new and upcoming games that are really cool entries into some of the most popular gaming properties. We talk about the new Pokemon Battle Academy board game that brings the trading card game into a more controlled environment in a board game format. Next, we chat about the upcoming Dungeons and Dragons Adventure Begins game that is a great starting point for people interested in dabbling into the D&D world. The cool part about it is that it passes the role of Dungeon Master each turn to the different players. Seems like a great option for family game night or a drunken evening with gang.







    Thanks to the pandemic, all cool events have been cancelled but it didn't stop toy companies from revealing new products and, for the first time, offering their exclusives for San Diego Comic Con to the general public via online orders. We highlight our favorite figures and also go into what we would like to call "Preordermegeddon". With an unprecedented set of circumstances this time around, the toy preorders have been plagued with near-instant sellouts and leaving all of us out in the cold- all of the while scalpers are throwing these item up on eBay for unspeakable amounts of money. We go over some of our experiences and take on the situation.







    On a more positive note, we watched the online panel for Power-Con, the Masters of the Universe convention, and really enjoyed the unveiling of the next waves from Mattel's Origins line and the announcement of the upcoming 7" figure line. Pixel Dan moderated the panel and it is so great to see a company like Mattel embrace someone like Dan and really utilize his expertise to make the Masters of the Universe toy lines be the best they can be. We cover the highlights and what we are looking forward to in this toy line.







    We want to thank you for listening to us and ask that you subscribe to our podcast- it is the best way to support us so we can get our voices into as many people's ears as possible. You are all the best and don't forget to PLAY WITH IT!

Hooked

I follow these guys on the ‘Gram and decided to give them a listen.

After listening to the first ep. I am hooked.

You can tell they have a great friendship cause their banter is great. They talk toys and pop culture stuff. More importantly, they made me laugh.

I just wish they had more episodes.
