Robots In Cahoots #4! (the podcast thing)

AAAAAND double post!

This is actually part two of our previous podcast (we promised to keep these podcasts short). So, no intro. We, well really me, talk about C2E2. I got to meet Brian Shearer who inks a lot of the IDW Robots In Disguise comics. I brag about my comic art collection, and how little I paid for it. Meanwhile, people lost their homes in Oklahoma. I am a materialistic jerk. Help some people out, please.

I mention Robot Envy, and here's the site. Pretty cool, right?

My opinions (gripes) about the convention (like, paying too much for stuff) should be ignored.

Anyway, the next podcast (#5) will actually be PART 3 of this recording, and it will be off topic. Hence why I divided this stuff up.

Coffee With Robots. I mean, Robots With Coffee. 2nd page added.


Please enjoy the 2nd round of ROBOTS WITH COFFEE. Click on the jacked up Perceptor to see the most recent batch of caffinated robots.

Coming soon (I haven't posted in a while)

Haven't posted in a while. Here's what's coming soon.

-2nd page of Robots With Coffee.
-Robots In Cahoots #4, podcast where Eric & I talk about my trip to C2E2.
-My work in progress Devcon (minor repaint of classics Scourge) with my new paints!

I had expressed reservation in previous posts about Trailbreaker (and Hoist), in that the transformation and robot mode looked somewhat similar to FOC Sideswipe (which I think is a bust, and cheap looking, but that's my opinion). Judging by the in-hand/promo photos of the actual thing, gotta say that they look pretty good. Or at least not crappy, like FOC Sideswipe. So I'm going to lighten up about them.

Anyway, check back after this extended weekend, and you should see a few posts.

THE PODCAST: we renamed it (or officially named it) ROBOTS IN CAHOOTS.

Click here for episode #3. We promise to keep episodes of ROBOTS IN CAHOOTS relatively short. The recording ran over an hour, so we decided to break it up into a few parts. This episode, we talk about FORT MAX (Encore edition!), other awkward TF behemoths, closure on my Shapeways adventure, upcoming Generations products, and a new acrylic paint I'll be using from now on. I can tell you're fascinated. Hey, it's only like 25 minutes, so...

Robots In Cahoots stars myself and Eric from 'Til All Are Mine, by the way.

Little camera guy: UPDATE! IDENTIFIED!

I'm kind of fascinated by KOs, other brands, and imitators, though I don't go out of my way to acquire them due to budget and...well, really, do I want THAT THING in my house? You know?
I was visiting Quake Collectibles a few weeks ago and the owner showed me this little guy. He was pretty pricey. I thought he was Go-Bot sized, except he wasn't a car. The brand is "Mark" or "Marc" Japan, and unfortunately I only had my cell phone camera to capture him on digital film, so you probably won't be able to make out the logo.

So, take a look, and let me know if you know who he is. I was probably not using the right search terms on the googles.

UPDATE: Thank you Optimal Omega. As he posted in the comments section, looks like his name is Focus from Convertor Spies. Explore that page and you'll see a bot that looks a lot like Whirl. HOLY OWL POOP, I HAD HOOT at some point.

Update on the podcast, some other random thoughts.

We might not have a podcast in the next few days, maybe not until next week, but Eric from Til All Are Mine and myself appreciate the feedback and listening. I'm also working on finding a 'host' that will allow us to have it uploaded on iTunes. This should be an easy thing for everyone else but what is keeping me is that we're coming up with an actual title for the podcast. I love "Til All Are Gassy" as it combines our blog names, but at the same time I don't want some semi-tribute to farting to keep people from checking it out. So while we delay our every-other-week recording session, we're gonna come up with a name before committing it to a hosted server distro thingy whatever. So when we have episode #3 up, we should hopefully have it somewhere easily streamable/downloadable other than having to come here and right click on the link. I'm sure it will be a doozy because we'll have a lot to talk about, including some of the stuff mentioned below.

-painted the little chainsaw guy. Orange & black. Pics later.

-C2E2 was great in that I got some original IDW Transformers pages (Well, the inks to these pages). Pages I really liked from both RID and MTMTE.

-I got the Kreon (mini) Devastator set. Adorable.

-I'm on the lookout for Voyager Generations Blitzwing & Springer, but more Blitzwing than Springer. I'm really not interested in Springer because I have the one from the Springer/Ratbat set, and the GDO deluxe version, but I'm getting rave reviews about him from friends. I'm getting mixed reviews about Blitzwing, but that's the figure I'd want to get. I'm hoping for a complete Classics representation of the G1 figures (pre-Scramble City/Movie) someday. So, Hasbro: Skids. C'mon.

-I'm in no hurry in my hunt because I had to pay for damage to Gears, my car, from being Sideswiped several weeks ago by a hit & run driver. BOOOO.
