How Much Does a Wedding Actually Cost?
"Experts project that twenty twenty one wedding costs will rebound what they were in two thousand nineteen if not higher so let's take a look at the twenty nineteen numbers. According to wedding wire the average cost of a wedding reception per couple was around. Twenty eight thousand dollars. Although i'd venture to say it was probably a little higher. Because according to the not here are the average costs involved with a wedding reception. Buckle up because it's a long one ten thousand five hundred dollars for a reception. Venue two thousand four hundred dollars for a photographer. Eighteen hundred dollars for a video for two thousand dollars for florist sixteen hundred dollars for a wedding dress. Three thousand seven hundred dollars for a wedding band twelve hundred dollars for a reception. Dj seventy dollars per person for catering and the average wedding in two thousand nineteen had one hundred and thirty one guests. I guess it's an odd number because of all the singles who want to go home or at least go to bed with a new plus one and that brings the total cost of food to nine thousand one hundred and seventy dollars. The rehearsal dinner costs on average eighteen. Hundred dollars five hundred ninety dollars for the invitations. One hundred dollars for the hairstylist hundred bucks for the makeup artist. Four hundred bucks for the party favors and last but certainly not least five hundred dollars for the cake that is a total of thirty five thousand nine hundred and seventy dollars to put that into perspective that the lot more than the down payment on one hundred and seventy five thousand dollar house or tuition for a year and a half at florida state university. It's a huge chunk of change. And again i would still argue that. Those estimates are probably low. I mean shout out to the bride. Who's spending one hundred ten bucks on a hairstylist. But if you're living in la you're probably spending five times that amount which brings me to an important point of course. These averages vary widely depending on factors like location. What time of year and even what day of the week it is. You're tying the

Light 4Bets At $5/$10 Online 6-Max Cash
"Want to start the hand number. One that i played about a month ago and i played it on a poker coaching. Dot com playing explained livestream as well so Brad's hand starts with us at a five hundred table playing five ten. No limit cash on ignition. Brad is under the gun or excuse me. We're finding five handed. So brad is in the middle position with eight seven of spades opens twenty five dollars the player in the cutoff. Who looks like a rag. Three about two seventy dollars. Everybody else folds caught off and brad are. I guess we should finish up. Ashen brad bets to two hundred thirty dollars. Oath brad and the cutoff started about a hundred and forty five big blinds effective on rag but his three about sizing was team very very small even versus a hundred big stack versus two and a half x. Open making it. Seventy is definitely smaller than what i would expect. I'd expect closer to ninety or maybe even one hundred out a huge deal. I think the more interesting. Our pre flop is your decision to four but actually don't actually think that villains throughout sizing somewhat reasonable at this depth and because they're in position. I don't think they necessarily need to go super big because they can. They can go smaller here. Then they can defend very appropriately versus four bat swallow retaining position throughout the rest of the hand. And if i call very often facing the small three bet sizing then basically. I'm gonna be out of position in a deep sack pot throughout the rest of the hand which is going to be pretty annoying to navigate so actually think villains three about sizing here is it's reasonable. I don't think it's it's definitely not a not worth nitpicking over the sizing for sure. Yeah in seventy eight. Suited is gonna be commits close to the bottom of my. Mp opening range. It's a handed. I mean again. I'm probably defending almost everything except for some alike off suit. Ace jack off type hands. I think those hands are going to get folded but pretty much fitting everything versus small three about sizing and need to find some hands to forget with for board coverage and then also bottom of range type for hands that could flop pretty well can give me some equity post flop and like i said can cover some some of the lower middling type boards that we would like to have some good hands on those boards to so because of all of that. I decided to go ahead and four about this hand if it does five bet which i don't know that they're gonna five bet really anything here even aces and kings. I think those hands might just flat but if they do five bed it's obviously pretty easy to fold the seven hundred and eight.

The company's monthly net orders in china dropped to about ninety eight hundred in may for more than eighteen thousand april according to a person with knowledge of the data the sharp drop reflected a drastic shift in chinese consumers appetite for tesla whose founder elon. Musk has celebrity status. Their orders in january after the release of the motto sub and then slowly eased off before cratering last month. In march tesla had twenty one thousand that orders even on a week over week basis order so far haven't shown any signs of recovery. This person set and quote. The rest of the article is then pay walled. But i did read the full article. There's nothing new in the rest of it. It's really just kind of detailing. The situation that has been unfolding in china.

Is the New Apple TV 4K Worth the Money?
"Is the new apple tv. Four k worth. It could keep this fairly simple. probably not well what. Let's let's before we get into the details. I i do want to dig into why you think this But he tukwila. What is new about the new apple. Tv for kickboxer. What what exactly is it's the second generation. So how's it different from the first one short so the new apple tv four k which was updated a few weeks ago long. Overdue update gives it a much more modern processor goes from the eight ten. The twelve biometric which was a processor found a years ago and i phone as opposed to the ten which is dating itself Back a few years It also has most notably in remote that works a lot. Better it drops. The reliance of solely using track pad now has a directional pad. Baked in with apple calls a click pats combined some of the gestures with a real functioning directional pattern that makes navigating the apple. Tv significantly easier. Yeah and i know. We talked about the remote the floor. Is that something that existing apple. Tv buyers should consider buying this box for if you have an apple tv four k already. Then i think the fifty fifty nine dollar remote upgrade. That's how much that remove costs on. Its own apple charges a lot. That's apple. I think if you have apple tv four k fifty. Nine dollars for remote makes more sense. Assuming you're happy with that. Box storage is in full Absolute pretty quickly and easily for you. Getting that upgrade is a lot better than spending hundred and seventy dollars on a new box. If you have an older apple tv hd then are actually recommend the opposite. Spend the extra money. Get the faster box will get four k support for more modern. Tv's whether it's tv currently owner the tv that you'll probably get if you don't have a four k. Tv now at some point in the i imagine not terribly distant future

The oneplus nine pro. You guys know that For for prices we have seven twenty nine starting price for the oneplus nine and then it tops out at eight twenty nine hundred bucks more That gets you eight gig ram and one hundred twenty gigs storage at seven twenty nine and then for another hundred bucks you could ask for more gig rams so twelve gram double the storage certificate six for the nine pro. Which is this guy starts at nine sixty nine. And that's also the eight gig one twenty eight gig combo and then this model i actually have is fully specked out so another hundred bucks which takes us over the thousand dollar price point to one thousand sixty nine twelve gig to fifty six storage. It's kind of what they've done for a couple years so it makes sense but we are at another increase the The eight pro last year started eight ninety nine and then topped out.

Six hundred ninety six ninety nine seven ninety nine have been six nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine.

I don't know that they've ever really done those in there. Really cheap phone so i. I'm not gonna waste time complaining about those. But they added the newest of the new. Obviously the cameras going to be a big focus with the with the hassle blah partnership But like this nine pro has hd one hundred twenty hertz. tim's lower lesser of a phone much Ten eighty p but also still hundred twenty hertz. They both have staff in eight eighty eight. I talked about the ram and storage configurations On the camera this has a quad camera. Yours has triple camera. Believe so the big thing.

The Robinhood stock app restriction on GameStop and others, explained
"The past two nights here on free talk live. We've talked in great detail about this robin hood situation Which was originally the game. Stop situation but then robin hood. The stock trading app decided. It wasn't just robin hood. It's it's been a bunch of stockbrokerage websites and apps and such. They have locked down people's ability to trade certain stocks. They've decided that they know what's best for you. And the shaun be able to. Trade rob skirts. Sorry robin shop able to trade game. Stop you shop able to trade. Amc and like a dozen other failing business now. Apparently the accents cryptocurrency. Now as well right. That's the latest news. As a matter of fact yes. So that's what i wanted to talk about here. Tonight was how now the very same app which apparently is forty percent of its revenue. I got the the clarification on this nobody because last night We were wondering are they owned by the hedge fund. That got hit the hardest by this whole game. Stop thing so the turns out the hedge fund is like forty of robin hood's business so there are big client apparently of robin hood. And so i thought it was that the company that owns robin hood also owns the hedge fund. Well that's what i had heard originally. But now i've read that they are a big client is apparently of hoods. Probably their largest client that forty percent of their revenue comes from said hedge fund now for listeners selling that hedge fund or i don't know how they're paid for don't they don't their fee free trading right. That's that's what their day are for retail investors. They may have a different level of -til tier of service for other people. I don't know. I don't know exactly what they're arrangement is with this company tied in deep with them this hedge fund that they're talking about has taken billions of dollars apparently in losses because of their short positions on the game. Stop and that's what. The news was two days ago. Was that these hedge. Funds were being taken for a huge ride and losing billions because they had short at game stop and what happened was a reddit. Community called wall street. Bets decided to organize just decided to self organize. And say well. We're gonna go and buy up this failing company game stop this physical media distribution location. And we're gonna put money into the stock and that resulted in the short sales having to be liquidated but they couldn't They couldn't get the short sale stock back because the guys who were buying the stock the the people in this group weren't willing to sell it so the price of the stock shot up insanely because there wasn't much available on the marketplace for these for these hedge funds to actually buy up so as a result of that the price of the game stop. Stock has gone up tremendously in the last month. It's gone up from like thirteen for fifteen bucks to over three hundred seventy dollars at point. I think it'd even crashed through four hundred dollars a couple of days ago now since gone down a little bit into the lower three hundreds. I believe as of yesterday. And i haven't checked today to see what happened to it so then yesterday the news was this robin hood. Stock trading app had told its customers that no sorry. We won't be letting you buy games game up or amc or some of these other failing businesses because protection. We're protecting you are our clients. They would only allow you to sell said stock if you had them in your inventory. Then at the end of the day yesterday they put out another press. Release reneging on that previous restriction and saying that okay Starting tomorrow we are going. To let you buy these stocks but in limited quantities.
Bethesda Announces Indiana Jones Game
"Morning a little small indie company by the name of edessa decided to wake up in chooses violence. They've announced a new indiana jones game. I'm pulling directly from their twitter Kevin i have the twitter link. Create a poll up. If you wanna show the teaser that they tweeted out this morning for the indiana jones game between a follow up tweet reads like this. A new indiana jones game with an original story is involvement from our studio machine games. It'll be executive produced by todd howard in collaboration with lucasfilm games. It'll be some time before we have more to reveal but we're very excited to share today's news on those your reaction confusion because they didn't look rebrand yesterday and they're already like coming out swinging like i remember everyone thinking. I wonder if this means like indiana jones games like. Yeah maybe when they do movie sure but like i did not expect the day after they did. The rebranding like yeah. No lucas like indiana jones as well and machine games really good. Pick i would. I am excited for them to stretch our legs a little bit like get into different. Ip it like really see what they can do with this game. Yeah this looks. I'm very excited about this. From the perspective of i would not have expected this announced it and for them to come out and be giving it to machine games. I think is very exciting Because beijing games obviously known for the wolfenstein game the recent style games that i've been really excellent. This seems like an entirely new project for them. In the way that. I'm really curious and excited to see them. Stretch their legs and try out something new. Because this this very much reminds me of the same or similar as guerrilla games From zone in creating horizons zero. Don you know and like kill zone obviously like not wolfenstein in terms of how those things are. it's like wolfenstein. The new colossus vary excellent game. But what games in wolfson cost new colossus and. We'll send the order. I feel like if showing off a skill in terms of. Hey we can make blockbuster story like we can make We can have great dialogue and great cut scenes and really have you engaged with what's going on in the story of this game and so to see them tackle indiana jones game. I think is really exciting for that. Machine gave such a perfect pick because they're not afraid to just like if they want to do something that doesn't necessarily like jive with game and sarah and i'm not saying that's bad but like if they want to create some distance they will do it like we just colossus. Start off with you. Feeling all powerful. It's with you feeling like real shit like that. You start off extremely weak in that game. You literally start off in a wheelchair and then like before you really get. You know the new die. In a couple of hits. It is a difficult game at the beginning. I i can definitely see them. Having gained more quiet and contemplative at times indiana jones game that sometimes gets really lower action packed. And i think they're they're great at doing those balancing those two things so yeah. It is super cool to imagine what that game is right now. of course peach on dot com slash. Kind of funny games where you can go to ask questions for this show and most of the questions were all about this exact news and i have two questions that pretty much encompass what most people were asking So i'm gonna pull mitch crass in who wrote in and asked what is the most likely version of the in an indiana jones game. You're getting machine games. Third person first person tomb raider or horizon. Gluten full also wrote in and says good. Morning sexes with indiana jones. Being announced how do you think the game will fall into the microsoft acquisition. Xbox exclusive gain if third party and its success will microsoft. Continue making them. Thanks for all you do. 'em ron start from anywhere. I'm i'm gonna let you pick where we start in terms of what this game is going to be in house can be released. Could actually we're up to these things together is does does this game exist as an xbox version of mater are not charted. And that's like that. Is i think the most important question to me. 'cause like if like are they trying to go for. Hey why bother with dime store idiot joseph. Every jobs were here like drake become the. We have indiana jones at home. Kenneth i who knows. I think that would be an interesting for microsoft but the fact that acquisition was announced through ago as as the more than three months ago like four months ago. I'm gonna guess. His games deals deals with this game. Were asked before that but it is also worth noting that xbox responded to this tweet already. They've the xbox account. Sony has not as far as i know. Maybe it's correct me. W but does that indicate that this exclusive or does it like the fact that it's a external ip in the case that is supposed to be everywhere like this does give us a little bit of an idea or not yet but it will give us a little bit of idea of what does microsoft plan to do with the are they going to for example the star field on ps five. If so like was an ordeal for that or are they going to have startups five. Four seventy dollars and free on a free quote on game pass like that would be a hell of a contrast to make so. I'm curious what happens with within. Yeah jones because if they do make it they're like you can only play like spiderman. You can only play indiana jones on xbox that is a compelling do

He didn't have a truck at the time so he would borrow one from family or friends in order to source multiple pieces in a single day after refreshing them with paint or stain he would list them online with each one profit between one hundred and fifty to two hundred and fifty dollars since you've listed solely on facebook marketplace and didn't advertise ryan didn't have to pay any costs for marketing is. He began to scale up. He would work on several separate pieces at once. He devised a rotation process in his garage which allowed him to apply three coats to three or four pieces a day. You got even faster once. He learned how to do. Stained wood tops. This feature increased the value of his furniture still further. It allowed him to take a fifty dollar dresser and sell it for up to three hundred dollars in fact. Here's a fun anecdote. Brian purchased one particular piece from a garage sale. For fifteen dollars. Hit looked on. Its own so he ended up selling it as for two hundred dollars not a bad return on investment for practically no work the most challenging part of this project was learning the technique of making furniture reflect that farmhouse style. He messed up a bunch of pieces because he didn't apply the paint or stay in a certain way. Sometimes he could recover them sometimes not sometimes he would distress the coats of paint too much but through trial and error ryan perfected the skill. The furniture flipping continued part time for several months. Meanwhile he was growing more and more than happy. It is corporate job so in august. Two thousand nineteen jessica convinced him to quit and try flipping furniture fulltime. He finally got his own truck and focused on the furniture. Business bringing in between two thousand and three thousand dollars a month. Although this was less than he made it as corporate job he was much more content. Ryan did this for about nine months. Also helping out with jessica's wedding photography business earlier this year. He got a chance to go back to work in call center management but with a twist. This time he found a dream job working remotely as a supervisor. This rule enables him to be close to his family also getting a regular paycheck with benefits. He's quick to note that the furniture flipping business will always be one of his reliable income. Sources it's not mentally taxing and he rebels in the opportunity to be creative. Best of all it serves as a solid backup plan so check this out. This story is a wonderful example of something that anybody can do. And when i say anybody can do like let me just kind of break this down because you might think. Well i'm not handy. I'm not either just just to be clear but it's not so much about being handy. Renovating is a lot like reselling of any form so reselling. I sometimes say one way or another. Everybody can do it. So maybe furniture isn't your market. What about computers or cameras or cars or high end kitchen blenders or upscale fashion items. These are just a few markets in which it's possible to make a good profit by acquiring items on making some kind of change or improvement and then selling those items to a new owner now. The chain improvement can be something substantial. You could be like overhauling the entire car. Let's say it can be maybe somewhere in the middle like a lot of furniture renovation is. it can't be purely aesthetic. In some cases you do run into situations like the dope from ryan where he found something and then thought about making a change to it but decided it's actually pretty good as it is in that case he paid a pretty low price borden was able to resell it for for a fantastic profit margin. So that doesn't happen all the time of course but you know as you kind of delve into this. Sometimes it does so. It's one of these things that everybody can do. If you're trying to figure out what's my next. How can i create a source of income. That is a good back-up plan for me. Something in this direction is worth considering. So i'm gonna leave you with today. Inspiration is good but inspiration with action is so much better.
This is what winning looks like
"I have a few people to sink. But i want to start by talking about two stocks facebook and general motors. Why those two you may ask. Because next week we'll be market full res tenth anniversary this show turns ten and the first two companies. We talked about on the first episode of this podcast. January fifth twenty. Eleven were general motors and facebook. Now in the case of gm they had just announced some really good sales numbers and we talked about whether that would translate into a good boost for the stock facebook was still a private company and the latest valuation put their market cap at fifty billion dollars and we talked about whether the social network was really worth fifty billion dollars and you hear from time to time. Well if you bought this stock at this point in time than today you'd have you know. And i i just thought well. What does someone actually did. What if someone listened to the first episode of market foolery took three thousand dollars and decided to split it. Three ways put one third into an and five hundred index fund. One third into general motors one third into facebook. How is that person doing after ten years now. Facebook was still private so they would have to wait another year and a half or the ip l. But you know in this scenario they just wait for that and on day one they say great. I'm in on facebook since january. Fifth twenty eleven here are the numbers s and p. five hundred up one hundred ninety two percent. That's good. that's real good. That is an above average decade. General motors less good. Gm up nine percent. I know of nine percent in ten years not gripped. Facebook goes public mid may of two thousand twelve and through today. The stock is up. Six hundred. Eighteen percent market crushing returns for facebook. So every ten years the market foolery day one portfolio. That started with three thousand dollars in cash is now worth more than eleven thousand dollars and i know. It is tempting to look at that portfolio in thick boy. If you just taken the money from general motors and put it into facebook. You'd be up so much more. That's not the point the point. Is this person this person who did this. Market full day one portfolio. They're doing great when it comes to investing. This is what winning looks like someone who doesn't invest in individual stocks like you and me someone who sits back and methodically puts money into an s. and p. five hundred index fund. Make no mistake. They're doing really well. Three thousand dollars in an index fund over the past decade. Now worth more than eight thousand seven hundred dollars. That's really good particularly when you think about all the sudden downturns the market has had over the past decade staying invested. No matter the environment takes discipline and i applaud that i celebrate that but three thousand dollars in an index fund over the past decade does not get you north of eleven thousand dollars today and yes i know that. Gm has not been the most inspiring business over the past decade. but it looked. at least. They're still here. Talked to any investor who owns shares of any of the many businesses that went bankrupt in the past ten years they will happily trade that stock for shares of general motors that end up in the plus column barely in the plus column. I know but they'll take those. Gm shares up nine percent along with the dividend payments. They will take that trade in a heartbeat. Facebook went public at thirty eight dollars. A share in may of two thousand twelve. That stock is now north of two hundred seventy dollars a share but remember was pretty rocky early on just a few months. After it went public. Facebook stock was below eighteen dollars. People bail people absolutely got in early. Saw the drop and bailed but those who held on. We're absolutely rewarded and again. I know no one actually did this. But i actually think it's a pretty good illustration of the approach. We talk about the motley fool on our podcasts and to a much greater degree in our services this is why we talk about allocation and mindset. This is why we talk about building to a portfolio of fifteen to twenty stocks with a long time horizon this market re day one portfolio is kind of a microcosm of what a market beating portfolio. Looks like you've got some laggards. You've got some companies that are keeping pace with the market and you've got some winners and a couple of those winners are up so much that they make your laggards irrelevant in the same way that facebook is up so much. It carries general motors over the finish line at the end of the decade to make this market beating portfolio. This is what winning looks like
Here's a first look at Apple's $549 AirPods Max headphones
"I wanna talk to you about the airpods max. There was many rumors this fall that these were coming and being mid december. It looked like maybe we're not gonna get it before. Two thousand twenty one but no early on tuesday morning apple announced and released the airpods max. They went up for sale. I think it was like eight thirty in the morning and to everyone's shock and awe and let's just talk about now five hundred and fifty dollar price tag for the airpods. Max i would love to have your initial thoughts not only on the price tag but on the name. Because i kind of wish. They went with studio because the rumored codename airpods studio because they're over the your headphones with the cups. Noise cancelling airpods max. I don't know it sounds a little funny. What do you think william. I did as she laughed when i saw the name but only because apple keeps used to keep everything secret and now everything seems to come out but they hit us with a new name. We weren't expecting and that did the same with the apple a. m water. It is like there's a naming department that can keep a secret. I agree studios san sense better so these headphones they're very expensive. They're five hundred and fifty dollars despite that they're basically sold out until march if you try to buy a pair now it'll say twelve to fourteen weeks shipping time so even despite the price very popular you can actually go and watch him hd. And i just actually have these. They did initial videos unboxing and some initial thoughts. I'll put those links in show notes as well just kind of a quick specs. These are over the ear cups headphones controls on these. It is all physical controls. There's a large digital crown on one of the earcups that you'll use to adjust volume or you can press it down for siri. And then there's also another button to go from transparency to noise cancelling mode so they have a lot of the features of the airpods pro. They have spatial audio. They can do dolby. Atmos and seven point. One surround virtually in the headphones. So that's all very cool but a couple of the noticeable omissions will say no power brick in the box so with your five hundred and fifty dollar headphones. You do not get a powerbook to charge you. Do get a cable. You get a usb c a lightening cable so you can charge it with one of the twenty usb c charging that apple will sell you but it also does not come with the cable to physically connect these headphones to an audio source. If you would like that you have to pay an additional thirty five dollars for a lightning. Two three and a half millimeter cable to plug into an audio source and again the fact that they went with lightning on instead of usb bbc. I'm not sure i feel about that. But those are the omissions and again on that price tag at least put the cable in there. I don't know that's just me. What do you feel wind. Packwood's and i agree with you. That seems wrong. I know we got loose. Packers have old ones. So i don't know how much use they would be i. It never occurred to me to think about a physical connection with this their wireless headphones release anything else. But actually yeah. If i am a musician pro use a full who. This is a bargain but a worthwhile cost. I'm likely to want to better connection wireless bluetooth so yeah on quite taken aback. Especially if you cross into that audio file realm and one of things. I'm going to do with it I did order a pair though becoming tuesday. So i'll be able to talk about him on next week's episode personally but i'm actually a classical music fan. I don't think i've ever share this with amish on the podcast. But i'm a classical trumpet player. That's my wife degree. yes i love. Actually listening to classical music. Believe it or not and so. I'm very curious to see how these sound. On some of those mozart requiems and brahms symphonies at to see the audio quality is really up to snuff. But for five hundred fifty dollars should sound amazing. You know per se. Obviously this is in comparison and in competition with headphones. Like the sony w.h. Xm fors which usually cost like three hundred. Three hundred and fifty dollars was like attuned dollar premium for these and the bose noise cancelling headphones seven hundred are very popular. Those are around three hundred and forty dollars. So you're getting two hundred to two hundred and fifty dollar premium to pay for these airpods. Max so i really hope have to imagine that the sound quality is excellent. But you're also paying for apple's features like the h. One chips the ability to the noise. Cancelling connect your devices seamlessly switch just like other airpods and airpods pro another cool feature to the cups. The ear cushions that are on the headphones are actually connect magnetically. And so if you want to replace the earcups for whatever reason they come off very easily and attach very easily as well and hd shows that had his video looks pretty satisfying and you can also get replacement ear cushions again. Not cheap but seventy bucks on apple you can actually order them now in the apple store and on their website but you can get replacement cushions for seventy dollars again in the future if you need them and you can mix and match colors. There's actually a cool chart you know if you will have to get the space gray headphones and put some blue cushions on it. You can be fancy like that if you'd like but again you're paying a premium for all these. I don't know. I'm curious to try them. But these don't tempt you at all as i once used the bose actions that you mentioned don. I was very impressed on. I do like us. I'm more of a malla guide. The mets on no. It doesn't tempt me. Except there is one thing this one specification you've just kind of lewd to skipped a very good. That is crucial. What color did you buy on. I won't with space gray because the size of these. I mean they're large. They're over the ear headphones. And i like to be discreet when i'm around other people the rare times that happens and so white white was tempting. But i don't have so much you know every other airpod is white and i didn't like the green or the pinkish red color. Blue was the only other one that tempted me. But i don't know. I just went discreet. I want black now. You wouldn't touch. That's what it is so next day. Jiang at a party somewhere. Nobody's gonna notice because she didn't have blue headphones. That's what i would have gone full blitz. Obviously the blue did look very nice. i was tempted. Also attempt to engrave these. I've actually never engraved an apple product. I don't know why i just have never done. It and i was very close to engraving these. But i had a moment of. I don't know what to put on them. And i know shipping. Times are gonna slip. So i just four went the engraving and just sorta without. But i'm curious william. Have you ever engraved an apple product. No because of always thoughts. And i'm gonna pass it on somebody else or might resell it to somewhere right. So it's been like having a set to somebody on their name. Just you break up with something. It feels wrong in a weird way. It feels like it's studies the the pristine finish of the device as well especially if you wanna resell it. That definitely makes it more difficult but I know you have tons of tattoos. You have sleeves don't you. Have you have tattoos all over please. I'm not illustrated unless you know what you said about coming up with something to say. I know whatever. I had written on me. I would change my mind magic instantly and want to me. I did work with a young writer. Who said she was aiming to have some text for every significant part of her life tattooed on and i wished to long life and much fatness so that you have room okay. Well staying on the grieving for a second. I saw that in addition to letters you can actually engrave emojis on apple products. Now you can choose emojis if you'd like. So here's my question to you william. If you could engrave any emoji apple device what emoji do you think you would choose. Would it be the winking smiley face sticking out the tongue or would it be money flying away. What do you think is the money involved here with page to do this. I give you twenty bucks. Yeah i need more need more. I need a lot more needs to pay for the hedge funds and then i feel that's nice cost parlance I'm i'm a writer. I can't bear emojis next. Particularly i had a message from a singer songwriter. I profoundly admire but it was all in emojis. And i have no idea what she was saying. It was just. I think it's gonna start communicating with you william. I'm gonna do all emojis from now on well good by sending emerges did not sending me pat. That's where you're going wrong. You sending the wrong listen. Listen we'll see when that when the next ipad comes out the battery life on my ipad. I don't know what's going on but it is I don't know. It's a little rough. When i edit podcast. It's great at any at any other time. So that new model comes out. I don't know we'll see you keep playing this long game gas lighting me. I'll just send it off without even thinking about it.

So Hasbro's partnering with a Malaysian company to do monopoly themed, hotel, transformers. Oh, no. They don't mention traits where we're supposed. Yeah. What was that thing? They did with transformers that was touring Asia for awhile. It was like an attraction thing. Yeah. And they're also doing with the same Malaysian company, I think a waterpark, featuring GI show, and Nerf themed attraction. Wow. That sounds awesome. That is crazy. They're actually going to do something with the GI Joe property in. Wow. A GI Joe, waterpark sounds offset that. Amazing. That sounds amazing. And I want that. Yes. Ilet reenact the opening to the Joe movie, every time every time you go down the slide, you have to go yet. Oh. Would Turco grant.

Yeah, I'm just saying, you know, characters that were in the show that didn't that were nice section transfers, like all about spike on bought the up who want. Nobody wants bought. I don't want bought by about. Or wrong. But that's the point. But, you know you get Lord. I'm not enough. Not no more family. But I mean you know, if a successful, it'd be nice as a decently posible you know night bird, we have I like my night bird. Yeah. I think it's a good twenty. Forget about that one. I'm sorry. Very serviceable night bird. Okay. Okay. With have a car on its back trio who cares you take? It's a good Vic. Iron factory I f x thirty eight optics hunter, another hound this legend scale. I don't think this one's gonna be one hundred eighty dollars. Okay. Probably forty. Yeah. Fisher static nicely. Yeah, yeah. It's not that he, he looks to be for hound. This is true. It's not an uncommon thing with iron factories. Yeah. So. So I think it's partly in service to make the vehicle mode book appropriately proportioned, though. Yeah. If, if you like to iron factory aesthetic you like this, so there's a matrix workshop in b twelve siege imprest are scream upgrade kit. I'm guessing it's a crown. It's a crown shoulder pads but no Cape. Kate. How, how would you Cape on that toy? You it wouldn't work. Well. Dermot nation. Be done. I dreamt you'd have to probably waiting to do is hang like half capes off of each shoulder, but it would work just just flare them out. First hand like there, the middle part sort of common renovate beasts mantles that sorta audible on his shoulder count at that Chris, I choose not to compare anything to anything from wizard. Why does every star scream needed crown and shoulder pads? Don't is in the movie dyke. I know but we've seen it this on wasn't fine perfect. I understand that, you know, even some of the classics star screams, that they did it with. Yeah, fine. I understand that this is like, but Petra Jay's is there is there a Kate for pretty keen, though? Screw it. Yeah. I mean they're I mean they're doing doing this award for dialysis. Yeah. I think is doing and somebody's do like a like a new head predicting and I was like the apt brain and the cake thing. No, no. We don't need a toy of Cape thing. God. Okay. Calm one. Let's forget that one. Yeah, let's move on. But yes, no. Like we talk about stuff from zone all the time. And I have to realize, yes, we have some very hardcore transfers fans. Listen, but we also have people that are newer, transformer soon. You may not be familiar zone. I'm pretty though Only one episode. one episode one episode like twenty minutes long. I'm certain it's on YouTube. Check it out, and it's been fanned up to. That's more your Dobbs. I you don't even need it subtitle. You can just watch it and experience, let it wash over you. And it's got tripped on and overlord and combines all wearing armor. And it's beautiful if you've never watched it just took for transfer zone on YouTube and certain you'll find it. Okay. Maybe. Okay. So actually, though, if you've probably can also find it at Tf radio dot net slash Amazon. I bet I think. Extra in the Japanese collection that shout did. Right. I think so. I've got no zone on that. Okay. Can't buy it on because people sell it. They used to maybe. Yes, so Chinese version of victory and I did a search for zone. It came up, I can't confirm or deny that it comes zone. But if it was gonna come with one set it would come with victory. So, yeah, Tiffany dot net slash Amazon..
"seventy dollars" Discussed on Radio Free Cybertron - All of our Transformers podcasts!
"Yeah, I really do like toy, and, you know, probably probably distinguish more from the sound blaster that's coming. That'll have that'll have read ice ship to the US one hundred hundred fifty six dollars. Not terrible. Yeah. I bought it. Okay. So. I wonder if I wonder if you can still find his cassettes, or if they don't knock off. Yeah. At the very least, like the ravage and rumble, I think, I think ravaging rumble and frenzy and buzzsaw, like those knockoffs. Have never been hard to find the wrap that one may have been a little bit hit and miss. Let's see here. Some plasters up there as well. He's twenty three that's from third party sellers. Okay. Yeah. I've got. That enemy said Tacarto. Meanwhile, exclusive maybe. I can't remember it might have been actually. Okay, exclusive some kind of exclusive. Okay. So what else we have going on Tarn power burst? Version flame twenties curry Kara curry limited edition figure if you wanna Tarn, it's nice looking what is the price on this hundred bucks Iranian about four hundred. At one. This is a limited edition for to just five hundred pieces. So it'll be at least four hundred dollars. It might be more. This is the one thing that I'm a little worry about Guinea into these higher level. Hot toy pricing on transformers. Is that they're going to go back and get more use of mold? We own that and we can't blame for that, but this is a more vibrant color. I think it looks really good having no connection to the character. But let's say you bought the first one because you didn't know how plentiful they were going to be or how hard they will be get to be for aftermarket. And what the prices are nab may come out with this one. You knew they would do something of intially. But you weren't sure would it be reissue, would it be Rico, or for what so now you've dropped all this money on the first one, and they say, better version comes out. I mean if we're looking at thirty or forty. Deluxe repainted or something like that is one thing. But I mean that's the problem with these, these things is that you can't blame the company for making new versions of this mall with different colors. They might even make this in to the out of shattered glass version at some point like they did the toy for Tf con. I'm just saying as an example, to get more Modi's, but it's the same thing. Do you get the first version now because the character you like or do you wait and see that you think they're probably wanna do something nicer later? But they don't. And then you is the first one. Yeah. The first one because this is probably not something's going to happen. Very often was third party stuff like this. And this one is just the same colors except some of the purple is now chrome. Yeah. That's just a concern some of these really nasty figures. You know, how often can you play Russian roulette with what they're gonna do? Branded you miss point between sound wave and jet fire could have wing red wing. Okay. So it's kind of funny. We have in hen. Hi rez photos, redwing. I thought read we are already out. Yeah. So, so if you want three seekers with the exact same battle damage pattern. There you go. Actually four for Scott sky, warps not out, yet, either. We have pictures of it, and I think it has the same deco pattern. Okay. We talked about it. It does Red Wings star screams guy. Warp and thunder. Cracker. Well, all the time pattern I'm gonna go ahead and say, just because I can say again, if we talk S, D C, I would almost bet that they're going to do, three pack rainmakers wristy. See that would actually get me to buy this mold set. Yeah. Yeah. And that is the only thing that would get you to buy this mold. That'd be kind of big ticket thing for three for three voyagers desk. At least one hundred dollars hundred bucks, I would get that ridiculous. It probably be high twain, except they kept their FCC exclusives. More toned down in price point, the last few years, though, it isn't anniversary year. I can see it as a possible. I just I don't know. It just it's I don't see it as being impossible thing to show up at us or some place else, just there's something about it, that just doesn't feel quite right to be for the past couple of years, haven't really been like deep cut fandom things either. They've been more like weird kinda what what the hell is this, like, the, the prime that turned into a skate park? Yeah. I love that thing. It is best Laos. It is really unlikely though that through all the years of fighting and everything that they're paint would wear exactly the same way. Well, it depends like you know, if four of them are flying at the same time, you know, over the same set of anti air guns, you know, maybe they always taken the same pattern of flak damage. And that's what we're seeing on the toys. Well, I'll I like the idea of the rainmakers because an anniversary year it's she won. It is a deep cut it it'd be different colors. I mean I can see that happening. But maybe, maybe it's because I'm old when I look at red wing. I see a book, Rogers Konia fighter. That's the that's the color from the book Roger Stevie series. That's what I say is a very icy Johnny writing star scream. Yes, yes, yes, it is. Anyway. I'm I'm going to sell my star screamer. I'm gonna get red wing that's going to be my instance of the mold. I liked the colors. The main body color is nice like halfway point between orange and red. I'm very interested to see in person. What caller is going to look like every single picture for every single source I've seen so far has represented a different shade. And he has got those fun. Magic colors doesn't do digital very well. We could just like give each individual shade its own name and make it a new character. I mean there's a whole image on the Redline came from. Yeah. Shitting that face star shrinking. Yeah, think I think redwing was actually like the deco was created by fun pub. I don't think it was an existing secret yet bottle. That sounds something to do with they're wanting to make son storm. And then maybe hooligan and one Sundstrom seemed like it wasn't going to work out. And then it did and miss communications. Yeah, yeah, it's a, it's a whole big thing if you search for redwing, I think, is one word on T formers, when we had the rumor of redwing from the combat megatonne product listing. I think in the article I actually recounted the history of how redwing came about. So you can sudden, try to find that I think the Wikki had some stuff on red wing too. I think part of the research came from there and part of it was from Jesse Witten rich on Twitter recap. Counting part of how it happened. Redwing POWs with the falcon now captain America. Yeah. I wanna see that mode. And who, who look and colors now the now that you've said this. Yeah, I don't wanna see that mold anything really except for rainmakers without battle damage. I'll get red wing, if they were to reveal a son storm was going to exist. I would have to get that also because, you know, well, I would conditionally have to they do it like yellow sun storm, like they've done most uncertain over the years, then. No, because that's incorrect. That is incorrect. The yellow one is rainmaker song, but Hasbro sun storms have revered far into the yellow end of the spectrum. Acid storm any twin autographed by monzo. Well, then monzo hand is going to hurt and fairly short order. Yeah. Okay. We do. We do need another just updated seeker mold where they just go insane with the re colors like they did with the, the classic make make legends class. And I'm all for it. I was gonna say, not a thirty dollar Voyager though. No thirty dollars wagers. Just just a good one. Okay. So we have let's see the official transfers trading card game. The Facebook page announced that organized play is coming to certain locations. I guess they had if I remember correctly, the had to get like a starter pack. So check your local game stores to see if they're going to be doing this. And that's pretty cool day cash. He might actually finally get to play. Yeah, I don't know what kind of store would it be a comic shop that does these. Or would you came aiming slash comic? Shop show. I don't know that I have any gaming. Most comic shots were checking in most comic shops aren't comic shops. They're just gaming shops with some comics thrown in so they can comic shop or in Nashville, the prevalent chain. Here is a record store with comics. That's great escape. Yeah. And there's video game chain here that does card games and stuff as well. So, hey, love this card, private smash down. So I'll smash downs one of the battle masters. Yeah. Yeah. But yeah, I love that card. It's great that should be the that, that particular Kurd. I believe is going to give it away to people who participate in the organized, play their special gold foil versions of some of the other character, Kurds, who that will be given his prices for the for the local games of the ultimate end point of this is the gonna be the energy on invitational at packs, unplugged, and the winner is going to get probably bunch of siege merchandise, and the opportunity to design new character card with the transformers trading card game design team. Oh, I hope I cast when that that would be awesome. I wanna nights card gay. No, it would be. It would be sky fire. Okay. Own nemesis, prime. Zayn sky fire card. And, you know, the friendly redone that it would have to be jet fire for trademark purposes. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I'm I'm just gonna do make cards going to be like, no. You can only do a small card. The card would just be the size. The card would just be like the table, top that you play on. Be a coffee table. What would have to happen as me and that would have to go in win instead of dyke half and do a secon combined. They picture that gets published before Yuna cross. So is this. Does this flame work hard part of the set? It's I think that more card is one of the gold foil variant that they are giving away to some of the higher placing people in the local in the local games. I just find it fascinating that flame morgues outside or gets card, or outside of anything outside of con- fiction. Yeah. Really? Hey, john. You're just sharing some news here, turtle, Chad. I think you're the one with your finger on the pulse of the toy industry due to various reasons. Can you give like four one one on what you're sharing with us? Quick. Yeah. We'll see in business just did a kind of like a catch up article on the recent things that Mattel has road done. And there's big things small things slip things just kind of what past my radar other people's radar. So the gist of the story is that they both struggled right after toys R us closed down for obvious reasons. But they both rebounded with several deals. Some we know about some like I said, kind of missed, I guess, but, so there's the there's Hasbro's magic the gathering show that the Russo brothers are going to do what on Netflix, which is crazy. I, I saw teaser for that or something like that on Twitter, but I didn't realize it was produced by the Roussos on that flicks that super two thousand nineteen and they're also bringing back micro machines. Sure. From wicked cool toys, but my eye bargain hunt has micro machines right now. So I don't I don't know what that actually means Bergen hunt, either awesome and Mattel. This is a big one for me. Like I, I'm surprised I didn't hear about this wouldn't happen. I guess, but Mattel has signed a deal with San. What does that mean? So they're getting Hello kitty stuff. So that's huge for them. Yeah, for sure. That's big juice. That brand up, it can be big again as a kid, like this was, like, nine hundred eighty five I might box, and I had it home was a Hello. Kitty toy box. I don't know if my parents, you know, didn't realize I was a boy or what at the time because, you know, generally, that's considered back then toys were much more geared towards boys and girls. But I guess it wasn't clear that that's generally considered a girls property. But I loved it. And because of that toy box and having it my entire life. I've had a soft spot in my heart for ELA kitty. So I think that's awesome. Yeah, for sure, in the last thing in the art, it's too little kind of movie update. So. There's going to be in development. We'll see what happens Warner. Brothers is developing Barbie, Hot Wheels for, for the big screen Mattel's, working with Sony on another masters of the universe film. Yeah. I. Direct seek with, with Sony, though, DJ really think they'll get it, right. The first cannons film Cannes film, right? Yes. That's great. There's a dragon's movie in development for Hasbro. And they also I saw this the Hasbro announced a Milo pony live touring musical show..
"seventy dollars" Discussed on Radio Free Cybertron - All of our Transformers podcasts!
"Cons a little tank, buddy. And this looks like it turns into a tank that would be fighting Godzilla such as trip to con-, interesting pairing that. Yeah. I don't I don't hate brunt. I not as thrilled with it as the other to weaponize, IRS, you know, I'm not I'm not feeling the potential in it so much. There's interesting things you can do with one of the suggestions in the instructions is to put most of the pieces together, as a set of, like claw arms that you put on someone the backpack, and that's actually pretty neat. The problem is with that you're left with the, the turret base piece of just sitting by itself. And they, they, they submit that you use it as a shield, but it doesn't look like anything, except the base of turret, that's kind of problem. I'm having with Coggin six gun, you can break them down to small enough parts that nothing look so specific. Like, what it was in its original vehicle or robot use. Or you can disguise enough brunt doesn't have that option. Nearly as well as the first weaponize, IRS do stuff is a lot more fixed at being what it is than being just a generic shape. You can imagine and something else. It's not the strongest execution of the weaponized, your concept. Unfortunately. Okay. Okay. Okay. So let's jump in the news. So NPR forty seven masterpiece hound. Rumored can rumor product tales probably actually all being 'cause we had the price in relief. It confirms through robot kingdom in the last twenty four hours so probably the other stuff is of real too, so eighteen thousand yen, which equals one dollars. Okay, how much? Yeah. Twice as much as they used to cost at least. Yeah. Yeah. That's literally twice as much as the original all about car masterpieces cost. Please don't tell third party. And. It has the exchange rate gone back to being a little more favorable. Exchanging is the same as been for the last two years. When when I tried to order voltron, it was one to one point of nine so it was still slightly better than a one to one ratio. But after looking at our love to have that hound. I love the, the plethora of accessories at that price gun dog is awesome is fine. Yeah. I mean, I'll I'll get this hound. I, I think it looks good. But if, if I find it disappointing, I think I'm just going to be done with masterpiece the way the prices are going like twin blame you. I mean masterpieces not their things I love about masterpiece to an extent. Like when we get past, like, eighty four eighty five I don't think that the stuff is that important to have I would love to have passed eighty four or eighty five dollars to have. Yeah. But that's, that's just it's, it's more than I'm willing Ness. Not true. It's more than I wanna pay probably will pay it, but it's more than I want to pay. It's, it's, it's quite a bit. But yeah, I have gun dog, and it's nice toy, but it's not like an official transformer. It's so I it's not it doesn't aid it. My, my third party shelf. It's not what masterpiece stuff might might masterpiece transformers, my third party transformers don't mix. So this is more of a masterpiece held than dog. Okay. So what you thought about eighteen thousand young car masterpiece. Now, the same information suggested that online retailers would be launching it at a thirty percent reduction, so, you know, Amazon Japan, h j should have under that list price. And it's Priore. This Friday, so no Don. No mass mad. Prices crazy. I can't tell them no, too, but keep buying them. Yeah. Now by hate myself, I really telling them. No. If you just end up buying it in the end. Okay. So I mean, they got me with the beasts worse, because I thought the price whose because be soars, but now that and then. Because because she tower was was reasonably priced for masterpiece, then everything went, then everything went down. But what it comes. So it comes with Cording to this. I'll mention the, the major things a hologram figure just a driver. Yeah. Okay, so driver, who? But so you're like more than meets the eye part too, or whatever. How demonstrates projecting holographic driver? Yeah. But he other like he did other like he did a rock to write and he's done other things like. But rock is not on the accessory. To Japan exclusive probably out here guy God side, MIR's listed as I hate the masterpiece mirrors. So the ecm is extra side. Mirror on the Sproule is included as an excess I just hate to MIR's come off so much gonna hate that. Well, it's either coming off breaking off. What are the hood parts? I suspect there is replacement parts to either have an open penalty engine or actually, you pull a chunk out and replace it with an engine piece. Well, I think it's. From the prototype photos, we saw didn't look like the hood, volume really does anything. So they could put some detail in there to use the empty mass really not early. It's a lot to pay. Yeah. This it is like this. Listen excess is pretty long. But like when you. Citing it's a little tiny thing. It comes with the key to the cage, they kept ravaging, that one time, not cage not ravage the key to the cage that they kept ravaging and Jerry cans. Sure. Gas cans. Yeah, I wondered I don't think I don't think this. I don't think this is the case. But none of this stuff really seems to be to make the Jeep more gene, to meet g specifications. So I don't think there's any lasted in this price. He would be four. Visit licensed Jeep is it license Jeep Reno. Yeah. It is. We saw the logo on it. I don't think though I don't know. I, some reason I thought it I thought I thought it was licensed, I had not seen the box. So I don't know. It comes through the character card in user, manual. Yeah. If the owners do go up on Friday, on car, tell me all page or some such if its license, there will be something denoting, that they're most likely. I mean everything up to this point has been licensed stop now. It's a kind of vehicle. The beast ones haven't been life true. I would. No, I didn't buy any of the neither was laser wave. So shop wave so that wasn't licensed either or ultra Magnus. Or what was the other one that wouldn't have been the start? Crime at the same time though, like the really cartoon accurate Bumblebee, coming up is ill by because I mean, a they probably want to maintain a good relationship with Volkswagen, even they could skirt around licensing because of the still jazz. Yeah. Actually, speaking of also not also not licensed, we have coming up actually reissue of and be thirteen sound wave with leisure, beak four hundred and fifty bucks, which is list. Bound, he's less than how and so much bigger. I understand. That's the price at the import and not even the like SRP for the reissue. It's a great toy. Did. It is not going to come with all the cassette. That's that was the Hasbro one that came with did the cost left yet. Did the did he come at leisure beaker? Okay. Okay. All comes with. Okay. You're still some cassettes to pick up from that Seth came out with the big careful. They're all bootlegs those floating around out there. I got the ball to get anything that got honestly I need to get sound blaster as well. You may need to get rep out. I I love some blaster and I love rat bat to EBay right now that my save list. Yes. Well, we'll brand and they don't usually there's a very, very good kale of the rat back set out there. Yeah. Yeah. I'm just I'm just saying I it's I've got it. It's a very detail for a solid. I, I remember the rep at knocked off floating around a few years ago is that still in circulation? I'm I saw one not long ago on a suggested item and I and I remember thinking, that's strange. It would be ball as a suggested item but could be a seller. They had some stock lift. I didn't I didn't use her to solve it in my suggested items, but didn't actually research it, but I did it did pop up. Spend, but I will get by one here. The have I have the both masterpiece rat bats. The, the one that came sound blessed or, and the fun pub comics. Pick that Rex. There's two rats what so rumored? Blaster and the fun pub digital on that. Yeah. In common in the comic deco crap. Yeah. With the scarlet. Yeah. From from when Jalen GT started in the GI. Joe comic would scarlet. Dr Bill Jones, the hologram center also wing. There's also wing thing if you want an orange one. Yeah. Though. A really good set up has enemy. Yeah. Ok cobra? Jimmy just any enemy. Okay. Dada. So, yeah, we'll, we'll see obvious the definitely worth hundred and fifty bucks, especially in today's masterpiece money. Yeah. Hopefully sound blaster. So I don't have to spend two hundred dollars on your exclusive to someone when it came out the first time is it was. I don't think so. Yeah. But I, I'm so glad they reissued sound wave because there really is no good third party sound wave and at one hundred fifty bucks, like you said, that's, that's great. I'm sure the aftermarket price on him was a lot higher. Because the last release him was probably with the Hasbro one or did they do another rerun of the to Kara one after that, I don't not remembers the Hasbro version with probably the most recent copy of at what like six seven years ago. Not that long. That's no. That's about right. Twenty third twenty thirteen. I think pretty sure I way back from Charlotte Cohen that acid storm came out the same year. But I mean, just think of it sound way is cheaper than hand. Yeah. It's just the, the engineering and tooling, everything's all sunk costs, ready. So right is this? It's crazy. Yeah. Real role in D twenty four to make sense fans that weren't able to get that a couple years ago finally have a chance to get it. And I highly recommend it is a really good figure. Yeah. It's laser laser beak is really nice to again. Thanks to John. He got picked lineup. So excuse me. Okay. Moving along what else we got going on. Okay. So we have new photos of siege fired and Springer this changing buddies mind. I really the Springer much because I'm that happened when I was going back to work and everything's chancellor picture ship getting firearm preorder. I've got Springer preorder. I canceled thunder. Cracker by still got Springer in preorder. I still have Springer preorder for now. I'll probably try and get Springer when I can Springer looks like a pretty I like all three modes. Yes. Springer's. Good. Good. Again. He's got battle damage, but I just gotta deal with it. I'm not. I mean, you, you don't have to deal with it. The question is, whether or not, you can forgive if you don't like it, right, which. Yeah. Not out this put enough and live with it. Yeah. It. I think the Springer's these pictures for the first time I think it bounces out pretty well with all three modes. You don't have one mobile that's really sucking for the other two, although the helicopter isn't quite as cohesive as I wanted it, it doesn't look bad. The balance of on the I don't mind the battle damage on the shoulders. The chess was a little neater. I think I would like it better know that could just be me. Let's see here if I if I can't like I like the way the toilets. If it would clean deco. I mean I wouldn't you one hundred percent all in on this, but it is, is it worth of my generation Springer for why do you have to replace it just saying or buying the right in there could be only one? Actually. No. Because my, my generation's 2013 Springer can stand with my wreckers and this season three cast, you see dawn when he gets the figure taken out of the box and going Radi fight flawless victory. It's nice. It's just think I, I don't think I'm a wait and get it. I do have Skype firearm preorder and getting Scott, Scott. Real quick real quick, while right? Yeah. Real quick. John had mentioned that ratios on wave is on Amazon, Japan for like two hundred twenty dollars range. So that's good deal. Brian, you need that, because that has the red is the version, you got has yellow is I'm sure you do. Do you can buy report accurate the seat? This is not this is not like you buying omega supreme just because you've got the wrong, John. We're supposed to make him by on this show that you're not getting rather make him by something like those happy, meal transformers, though he will not. They'll cost him the same money but it's more interesting. And something that Kim won't kill him for or something to hide from at least in stock on October twenty four th twenty nineteen. Sounds about right. He has read is in the photo. So one has read and the head head yellow. Yes. Now that you now that you bring that up sitting here looking at my seed, sound wave, and isn't it weird that they went to the trouble to make him relatively animation accurate. And he's is I know..

"And then, then I would have both thought of this afterwards about three Klingon ships, and put them around the Romulus ships wrong episode, but it was nice and the, the model kits were pretty well picked over. So I didn't get all the ships I wanted. But I did also get the NC one seven oh, one refit. Nice and I made an Amazon purchase on needed something to put me over the price for shipping. So I got yet another power of the primary. Do you have enough for full combine her yet? Oh, I have nine of these now. Okay. Three combined. I'm may. But I was actually shooting for nine because they're just happened to be eight different head head kits for this mold on shape ways. Oh. There you go. Is her model kit for the US bozeman? I would imagine. So I think the redress out the Miranda class class Alliant. Yep. Yep. Radio was just modified Miranda by reefa eating turning upside down, right? For whatever reason for whatever reason I always liked that. And maybe it's just the maranda class had under song. The cells to they, they didn't get flip the bozeman upside down. Just just I just I just like it because Kelsey grammer is captain. That's frazier. Yeah. Anybody else? Chris goes anybody. Okay. Chris, you have first up from my Amazon list. I was enormously gifted the best season of powering, which is the first half of Dino charge disagree, but it's very good. I mean, I know most people will say RPM and I appreciate RPM for what it was at the time. But like Dino charge, especially the first half of the series, just felt like such a tight. Good production. I think people give it more credit because of what came a couple years before. It. Can you get dynamite on? I did enjoy it, though. Now you can't get dynamism. And like even the shout factory, eventually works that far back in the back Centaur catalog. I don't think they're going to be able to acquire the USA dub as bonus features shout factory was still working their way back. But the last thing they announced a couple of months ago, and we still don't have preorder sport which was five men. That sounds right worrisome. It'll be fine. I'm sure so anyway, part from that I don't know who sent me know charge episode came anonymously, but thank you. I'm going to enjoy that later so apart from that I was able to catch through various late night. Shenanigans. Some wave three siege south, so I have a brunt. Just one just one I guess what? run. I'm gonna stick with just one brunt because I don't like it as much as cog or six gun. Oh, so it's, it's fairly competent in, it's a robot mode and kind of its vehicle mode, but quake, the individual parts breakdown. Does not feel as flexible relend itself too much imagination. I'm finding as those first few weaponize, IRS. So I'm definitely not going to buy more Bruns. Maybe they do a recorder of this mold at some point. I'll get a couple of those to fill out. But I don't really I don't need to get duplicates. Like I wanted to do with cog and have done with six gun. But like you know as a standalone robot. It's fine. It could almost transform without parts forming like most of the big pieces. Stay enrolled at the same place. But you still to, you know, unpegged repegged them in a slightly different position, but it's fairly close to just being a straight up transformers Pertz forming, but it does it did get the orange cannon barrel, which was kind of an uncertainty. Some of the stock photos were showing that being changed, grave for some reason it looks dice, it feels pretty nice. I liked the shade of purple that is it photographs relatively easy? That that's always a plus in my book. Now what doesn't photograph easily without a lot of corrections is reflector or three reflectors that has shown here in the camera mode, so tuck became road? I it's very stable like I can hold it from one end and shake it doesn't come apart. It pops the part pretty easy. There's four connection points on each side. So it's, it's a very sturdy extra mode. There's zero documentation for it in the instructions. So you kind of have to work off of the pictures on the internet and kind of figuring out what to do. I kind of improvised, this when I flipped up the feet of the middle of what you're modules from the front, it looks like there's a viewfinder bump on it, and I use the extra Irish rings for, like shutter button and the control dial on the back. So this reflector camera uses all of the parts. But, like everything holds the other really, well, that tripod part is sturdy, even though is just got one little connection on the bottom, where it fits in little tiny, narrow pig on top of that, I'm gonna pull on these often quickly transform it to robot mode for demonstration like it's just folding the thing into Q basically, it's not all that complex. But good sensors instructions for it. The only rule be in the box set. Yeah, I do wonder about if there will be a box set of these at some point like maybe more toys accurate colors, they'll really dip on that Hillary really to, to and include brunt. Didn't you know, so one hundred seventy five dollars. Yeah. That's our big SEC, exclusive this year just reassure trip to con with an unaltered bronc quick, go get these from ALI'S back. Wouldn't be that hard to get to get a toy Acura reflector. All they need is a couple alternate molded parts. Yeah. Basically, they could just swap out the chest plate pieces onto them. Yeah. Yeah. In the head it wouldn't be much of anything to do that. And then make the middle reflector be like bluer purple than this. Like lavender kinda reflectors a little bit small in robot mode, as east Alexis go just a little, the massive more than made up for in the accessories. I think so you're getting basically the same plastic mass, but like next to chromium you can see. It's a little bit shorter although it, you know built a little bit thicker too. I think that works for reflector anyway. He was for trade is being overly large thing in the cartoon reflect your was noticeably shorter than most of the other deceptive common. So it does kind of work out the posibilities pretty good on this. I finally kind of missing risk swivels in it for posing with the rifle in the shield, I think that would probably help a little bit. But I really liked the way reflect your looks with the. Lens barrel shield 'cause you can you can plug it on the side of the arm, which, you know, that, that's okay. But it really looks better, when you actually have it held in the hand because you get more flexibility to get in front of the body a little bit, and look a little bit more effective as shield, and then especially it's one rifles than it, it looks more like, you know, reflect outfit with riot gear which when you're buying three of them to make a fake camera of dubious dubious legitimacy, having a theme to go with the three robots like that is kind of helpful, and I, I liked the design of this rifle to it's big and chunky and it's got the, the tripod the third of a tripod ring on the front end of it. Just it's really Saifi and cool, looking and. On the plus side with this. There's no battle damage. Deco like reflectors got totally clean deco, and in-person. The, the sculpted detail does not look like super busy. So if the defense is not really your thing necessarily, I think reflectors still going to be appealing at least to some extent. It's not, you know, super clean looking like a lot of power of the prime stuff. But it is more subdued. I think some of the more extreme examples of siege so far now, whether whether twenty dollars worth or not each and then sixty for the whole camera, that's a completely different question. But I'm insane. Oh, and also the solo alternate mode is. Ignore -able as as flying battle slabs go. I think it's better than sound waves, but rather than using it as a spaceship, or an airship or whatever intent, they have I find it works better. When you have three reflectors again, it works better with the other shoe, holding as power blaster, because they can totally do that, with the side pegs that are available. Oh, yeah. The, the iris piece here, the aperture ring, that's not on a five millimeter peg if got four millimeter post. So the only places that you can plug this in, if you don't want on the tour. So if you want to be one of the left or right reflectors, you can only put on one of the three four four millimeter posts and the only other one available in robot mode is on the butt, and since they purposely had to choose where to put these four millimeter ports someone intentionally put one there, which serves no. Oh, purpose at all any other mode. So it must simply be to plug that onto the bud least doesn't storage, at least it doesn't have a tail. I'm kind of upset that that's not a five millimeter attachment for the Irish ring though, because. When you're transforming reflector flip the head back. And there's one of those four millimeter ports on the opposite side of the neck piece, I was hoping those five millimeters. They would open up a lot of possibilities for, like shape ways heads or something, you know, just five millimeter post neck, and you could put custom heads on really easily, as well as putting the aperture ring or any of the accessory on in other places in, you know, swapping them out for each other. Unfortunately, those, those dreams have been dashed all you could still do the custom heading shape as you just need a different size neck peg. Yeah. I think that's all I enjoying reflector a lot more than brunt, which is good Zeiss spent three times as much on the set of them. Yeah. Now is up run. Do you think that's going to be the mold made of impacter? No, we already know that's not the case because we've seen impact or impact on weapons. No. Tank or I guess you could squeeze a tank or out of this. I mean, it would be the most accurate thing in the w comics the like from around two thousand five thousand six like the early days, the robot mode for brunt is based on the design from that, which I think was done figura. You know, it was a century droid on cyber Tron. It was basically the same shape and appearance robot. But it was like silver. So probably a recall of this word who exists at some point, they'd probably go for that instead and basically just released transforming. Silence. Okay. I mean, the, the Bronx head ready kind of like a centurion Ceylon. So it's not really a far stretch. Do you think them forcing forcing the mole to be Brun is count on? Why you don't why he doesn't seem to be as natural of a match to the mold as six gun and cog were that they were trying to get that one more use out of it. And it was just too much of a stretch. Well, bronc didn't have a robot mode before. Did he this, you know, this is? Oh, original concept. So I wouldn't say to really like forcing it onto it. I did find it funny thinking about, you know, brunches trip to cons a little tank, buddy. And this looks like it turns into a tank that would be fighting Godzilla such as trip to con-, interesting pairing.

"I was I was like, oh, man. I never got that an I love comp Cosmo's. He's one of my favorites. So. Now, got to get that. How many Cosmo's? Yeah, it's like three or four now right? Oh, masterpiece the re I think, but yet if you count like the little guys and all that stuff got us most. This is so weird that you can go for years and not anything cosmos, because it cancelled the line. And now, now, we're basically just drowning in a sea of cosmos, asus, I hope to somebody takes their masterpiece cosmos retailers described. That would be great that would. My favorite part of US. Compu- tron. Yeah. I'm tempted to get the, the blue retailer that was Pathfinder the, the max, the new age version, they'd be that new h okay? And I and I think they're also doing it in big version of that one as well. I'm really hoping that fans toys does cosmos, eventually, I think it's got to be on their shortlist. They'll get to it. Yeah. Yeah. I also got some more ocean design transformers stickers. But I leave the believe these are the water slide ones because I wanted to try my hands at what her slides. And then some of these, if I'm correct are like old school, except the con- logo 's, so I'm excited about those two because I haven't had any of these style deceptive conlow goes. So what our slide is that like where you have to apply water? Here's something to make to. Or something hind of. Yeah. I think I think, basically what you do is you cut it out, you soak it in water, and then you put it on the thing. And then you use like a, you can use like a, a cotton, swab and wet that and kinda get it to stick to this cotton swab, and then you put it on the figure, you can move it around to where he was on it. And you can just disappointing. Great. It does not break does wind up looking like a Tampa or something. Yes. Yeah. It looks very natural. I put to get used to put together model kits that have had these on them. And yeah, they look very good and very natural assuming they do not break in the process of application, which they probably probably will good thing. That's a big sheet because you got a lot of tries. Got the as you get the hang of it, it will. I'm sure it will get easier for you. But yeah, those things were the bane of my like eight year old existence and other small stickers to I imagine. They have less of a chance of breaking from intended, handling than, like, you know, pin striping or something. Yeah. And like the have you ever seen how big the old AMT enterprise model is Chris actually? I own one. Yeah. And putting putting the all the various, you know things on from that, that I never got. Right. Chris, I've got a question is what dot cast is talking about a much, much more basic version of what they did to get the for patterns on masterpiece, Optimus primal, that was in the foles involve water? Yes. Okay. So it's, it's not. Okay. I remember run through the process and a very quick, basic way for the transfer process for the masterpieces with texture and stuff. They would print a sheet on what essentially plastic, they would lay that on a tank of water. And then there's a solution, they spray on top of it, which makes the plastic part dissolve away, leaving the printed image floating on the water and they run the part through that in a specific way to make the pattern adhere to plastic. So it's really not even it's just in that they both use water. Yes. So in that in that case. Any of the Dinu bots are whatever whoever none of them are exactly the same when it comes to where the pattern ensure Dino bought had that process done, but definitely think for primal for texture. I think Dino bots stripes probably could have been done with normal payment. But yeah for primal. Maybe cheaters spots. I'm not sure about that, either though. It's interesting. I'm amazed cool. What else I guess I got the metallic master square Optimus prime. No nice. Magic. Maybe. Yeah. I think masters Mike magic square. No. Magic's where he did. He didn't like the finish on it. I didn't like the finish on the original. Gotcha. The metallic ones. So. Right. Okay. Okay. Glad I'm glad you got when you like. No. That's a really good run. Yeah. And you know what I think about I keep going back and forth. But I'm really considering cancel in N P forty four I would bet is don't between between having the first Mattis wear having picked up the transmit transform element Optimus as well. Because they both do things I like, and I really just don't see in need to get in forty four when there's cheaper nicer versions out there or at least equivalent versions, anyway, but die-cast won't YouTube revenue more than cover the cost of the. Yeah. Yeah. Oh man. Put it this way. I makes a little on that they don't even send me a tax form at the end of the year. They don't even send you a check at the end of the year now. Yeah. There there's a I, I know what the payment threshold is. Yeah. That, that I north payments refers to believe me, because I don't take a while and the tax threshold yet higher than that. So even worse than you check. They probably send be a form for a while. Oh, yeah. I mean even at my even at my level, I think I've gotten tax documents from them. But yeah, I've never got axed documents. I've never gotten the facts document from from YouTube. Yeah. We don't we don't do enough views with ads actually may even have ads turned off, right. It's all fancy. Vibrant frightening community. You know, I I've got operation players. Yes. Apparently so. Yeah, because I I've met quite a few, but, and I, I've got an inch that works for me. That's all I can say. That's all you can really ask for it is. And then the last thing I got here iron factory to pack of whoever and whoever K on Voss. Yeah, they're gonna make a big Tarn. So that'll be that'd be pretty cool. And it comes with the, it looks like the chess section of the huge Tarn, which is just a picture of it on the back of the box. So at least you're getting some part statue build this combining now that we have three. So is, is he'll micro master combined or there might be like a frame that the other figures are sort of fitting around. Maybe. Yeah, you're pretty much have to be. To make a you know, well, proportioned legends combined without some fill in party. I mean it's it's iron factory dawn. You have the Brutus where there's basically a brutal bus that, you know, the other five combat the actual. Haven't assembled him yet. Of course, you'd have I'm behind. I'm not even surprised by that, too. I'm behind on some stuff, too. I got superior on still sitting there with one leg. Just laid to stand on one leg to stand on what you need to do is go outside and find a stick. Take lake superior on are trying to I'm trying to remember the superior on rap from the commercial. And for whatever reason, it's just not coming to me is it's not as good one. Yes. That was gonna be my question. Yeah truth. Okay. Anything else cast that was it this week, I almost I thought I was going to have anything. But then I did get a box of tau today. So anybody have anything before we jump to Chris any else? Chris, Chris, if he has the big item for this week. At Christie's last, Don got a couple of minor things. Don get something. Not you. Glad you go ahead. Rob. Okay. Well, I got one really nice thing met sent me final fantasy city NT for the PS four for my birthday and thank him that I actually got a chance to play at last night, too. That's a lot of fun. So the twenty first set right? Twenty third twenty third, okay. Yeah. Donges after years don's tweet. I yeah. Okay. Yeah. And I also did get a ravaging laser Beka seed-ravaged laser beak off of Amazon and laser beak is very nice. It's just another one of those again, just that there's little part of my brain that bothers that cyber Trone laser beak did not have like head did not have the earth mode wings at had very round wings. So it's got like the visor face in earth, wings. And just, you know, it, there's a lot of almost in siege in that kind of way that just kind of tick bad hard, my brain. I'm glad someone else noticed that. To actually like that blend of aesthetics fair enough. I mean, I it's definitely the better one of the two at lake the figure I just I around wings too just just to be stubborn about it. And you know. The probably shame ways kid or something, you can fit over the over the edge of the wing stuff. What is talk me would not shock the ravages, you know, the third or fourth a failed attempt to grow to combine cats with geometry. If this just happened. It's the best one, I think of, of the modern ravages, I've gotten or modern ravaging type gotten universe ravage that came with hound now that you mention it. Yeah. So it's the best one in say, yes, the guest wanted to say ten years. Yeah, but, you know, it's definitely better than the fall, cyber Tron disk ravaged, it's definitely better than the than the titans or turn phone ravage so that, you know, that's damning with faint praise. But it is all. It's killing those discs were terrible. Is that you in ravage still the best, ravage? Well, no. Because the universe one is three dimensional. I read like the masterpiece one. I don't remember. I don't remember like masterpiece when so much I like that. I like the flat cassette animals. I kinda dig that. Yeah. But yeah I'm not crazy about the universe one. It's okay. It's not one, but this is my favorite, ravage toy in the last ten years or so. Well. Ravaging that revenues payer was one of the best hands. So I mean was. But it's a, it's a good web kitty for Stratus in the chat pound in saying nine Jaguars highs at the base metals. Oh, yeah. I, I thought he's talking about the ocular Maxwell, Mike. I'm not crazy about it. Yeah, ocular Ma. I mean the medals ravages the best. But that's I think that's everything. I've got this week. So Don, a all right. First off, thank Matt. I did not deserve a birthday gift from him because of the voltron crap. He's been more. And I really I do I do really feel bad because I just kept forgetting it for the longest time we were like, I know I know but I wanna thank me early birthday gift, which I was not expecting. I sincerely appreciate he got me the best looking starship in the fleet as we all know that is the enterprise seat with, with. It's also a hate gift because he bought you a model kit. It's a little to this will be. I still have not a simple my show or so this'll be good task to get me. Slowly back into swords will be easier to put the other than that AMT kit. It's try life far. Oas is level to just snap together. Oh, maybe won't be that bad. I was afraid. You're. All right. Okay. And also, I shouldn't have bought this is off topic. But I've been looking for this for years, this off topic to although the. It was tangibly related because of man, but this is also tangibly related to Matt, because the shirt he's wearing green. Yes, green green lantern. Yes, I took took a little bit of sales money from my Twitter sales, and I got the one last figure from the old DC direct will inch line that I never got Alan Scott, golden age, Greenland or nice neat. He he came out at the tail end of the line, and Germaine, acne has, like one and I and I missed him and I have not seen one full list over one hundred fifty bucks. I got this for ninety ships hate on make sure to keep it away from would. So other than there really hasn't been any showing up. I did. I did see see galaxy upward Optimus last week for last. But again, it's bringing the register can't sale till the twenty till the twin whatever of July of and other than that people apparently Meyer is still getting the boat. Bumblebee movie Optimus, but all this left a scrap metal by the time I find him. So there's really the only thing locally is my WalMart got a restock of the forty nine seventy seven Optimus in that skits. So we have a conversation on the Chad who'd win in the fight between. Tryptophan Metroplex, voltron, voltron voltron can take all the transformers put together voltron literally magic super robot win. Yeah. He's a super fighting robot. Yes. No, he's not mega man. He's voltron. Okay. So. Matt. Would you get picked up myself a couple of the model kits while I was getting dawn's present? I also I also got an enterprise e nice. Destroy it. I actually taunted on Twitter today when he think me for that. I told him he's lucky they didn't have three Romulo Warburg with..

"I'll be there minute. Okay. Three two one. Oh, look at sold out already. Thank you. I guess. This is Radio Free cyber charter besides six twenty five don's about Tim Blois top, because he's not getting vehicle voltron because apparently it Solta that his joking didn't. He's not if he's not joking years asks his mind. Wow. Eagle serious business. Yes, I, I'm tempted, but that's a lot of money for something. I you know, I have a perfectly good. Tuesday morning knockoff of the of that, so KMart, I don't have a version of that, believe it or not. I have I have ten think I haven't, I don't think I have any more vehicle voltron around anywhere either. So Matt, rob. Chris Don Jason's here. John's eater. Yes, got relations. Thank you. Thank you. Everybody I need to take personally, who that was. So it was. Benjamin. Thank you, sir. Appreciate it. Thank you, Don. Hey, if you want to thank you. Join us in the Trat effort dot net slash live, every Wednesday about eight PM eastern time and you can participate. It's fun. Okay. If you wanna try to provoke members of the show into buying expensive things during pre show or the early parts of the show, you know, come and join our chat and you might just get your chance. It's sport. Really? Yeah. And I also this, sometimes it's incredibly easy because Brian is kind of a sucker, never sporting, we'll say that was good. And I didn't buy p forty four I can buy this and it all balances out. Sure cheaper. Yes. Yes. Four. Something that a soldier go can his cheaper, then m p forty four. Got depressing. Yeah. Try on three comes out for people who aren't in that collecting z like soldier. Go gin for twenty years has been the thing that is like a high water Mark for. Yeah. You have a lot of money your series about collecting this thing by a soldier Gokhan of it, when it comes to basically, is the hot toys of robots, robots, thirty much Mike. So I think I discovered a gold hand on live on episode of our SE and I wanted to soldier go configure that for the longest time. I don't know why. I just love the way it looks it's one hundred ten dollars. I'm looking on EBay are the these costs are there knockoffs of sorts. You go configures or could I expect that to be the, the real deal experience? Unfortunately, I've never encountered to knock up, but had never gone looking either. I mean gold never Never seen. seen one that cheap. Yeah. Be fair when it was nuit least I got the zingers e of from the very basic one from the zero av for like fifty bucks. So, again, not knowing anything, go light. And he's on lighter, which I have no appreciation for robot mode. He kind of looks like a microphone. I like that. So but it's not a microphone. It's a liar. Years ago when I would see random pictures of gold light head on the internet. It looked more like a big old building squares the windows that too. Yeah. But it's yeah. I may pick that up. Eventually, I would like to get like Mazzy or something. Yeah. That's why I got my unfortunately, I stored poorly in the faces a little bit worked with. I'm glad it was only the fifty dollar model at, you know having. Yeah, because I I've always hoped that they would release one of the one of the more simplified zingers with the scrambler over here, the do trans or z like packaging for their release, in his movie every that would be great, but that would be hard to incredibly niche for what it is. I know four that would sell Ida four people that would buy that maybe I would if I could so so Thorvald Mars. Let's pretty good. That one's coming out. I have. I got the I, I got the I if you a couple of years, I got it 'cause it's the closest where we're going to get the money or bought this God Mars waited to God, Neptune made you probably not okay? Let's see here on this week. So we were talking in pre show, S D C is over about a month and a half away. So still a little bit out there, you know, nothing in the way of spoilers. I think we're going to try to prediction show up for STC here. Maybe two weeks out before the before the show, which, you know, usually lease for that pop up, like more or less right before the event. So. That gets a little bit of padding, in case, you know, everything explodes again. Like you did a couple years back. Was that last year the league cast, maybe it was last year year before I believe. Cast cast was the, the primes. Yeah. Twenty seventeen. I think okay. Rodman supreme cracks me like new Brian imprio-. We were talking about burgers and barbecue point. Yes, that is true. It's very fluid pre show, hopefully the burgers barbecue are not very fluid though. Because then you're doing something wrong. Sadly, out some tried to Kito not, you know, nothing. I think he does to be owing all low carb is, you know, good to try so tomorrow on the the, the meal plan is barbecue. So I'm actually sorry planning on that. So it's pretty excited yesterday was ribs. Oh, I finally got ribs right on the smoker. Oh, good. Yeah. You know, finally the first first couple times, first time I totally botched it second time is close. This last weekend. It was just dead on perfect. So, okay. Now, you need work on smoking brisket. Yeah. That's, that's next. I'm gonna try that next. I'm not there. Fabric is pretty great corned beef. I had got before breakfast last Friday. Yeah. I can only corn beef and like small doses. According beef, enjoy corn beef, but corn beef is not my friend. Yeah. But, you know, I'm your host and friend, Brian Kilby in this is Radio Free separate on for the week and we're gonna jump into what we have. I, I have something I wanna talk about. But I don't think something worth going last for. I'm just going to start. It's, it's nothing huge. So two things one, I forgot who it was on Twitter, but somebody shared a couple of weeks back. A knockoff red g one beachcomber. I like that. I want that. So I bought that. It's, it's one of those knockoffs, I believe they're made by the company. Your company, quote, people that make the G one counterfeit some of the call them counterfeits, the ones that are in g one packaging and you know in ninety nine percent replicate. Jiwen toys, that would be the word. Yeah. I guess, so this one most of them have rub signed this one doesn't, but otherwise, it's pretty darn close couldn't find. My g one beachcomber to compare it to has it compared to my g two so their proper mold differences. I'm certain I with obviously their differences, at least certain things between g one and g two. But so the, the tires even say Dunlop just like the original toy did, which I didn't even real didn't even realize I forgotten that it says Dunlop on it until I was comparing it. But comparing it to the G two toys a couple of tailing details. Different one there is this. Ridges on his chest on this. They're nice and rounded on the toy. They're kinda sharp if I had my G one toy, I would wager that they're closer to this. If I had to gas because again, they're trying to replicate the G one toy mean down to the down to the Hasbro eighty four. Text on the door here. I'll be like it, qualities nice. It doesn't feel like it's going to break does not at all. No, no, no. It's sturdy. It's very sturdy. I the plastic I again, I g one toy to compare it to the plastic feels more rigid than I would. Imagine the one toy does to the plastic quality is again, this is just my recollection. It's been probably two years since I handled my g went away, it's an well, I guess, I in a box, so it's been less than two years, but the plastic fills slightly different than I remember the you win toy feeling. But yeah, it's, it's really nice. It surprised quality. I saw somebody on Facebook selling this right now for twenty dollars. I got the sunny Bay, I think shipped for fifteen from China. So it took about three weeks to get it, but they're sellers in the US or selling, I'm pretty sure I'm pretty sure was it plastic boutique has it for sale or had it for sale. So they're plenty of places to get it. I like it. It's nice other thing I got I was really excited about a couple of months back when I got my nineteen eighty five happy meals toy years figure that you get another another one. I didn't nice. Yes. So this one is another one that matches the actual toy of the four robots, which they have, which are Bumblebee cliff jumper gears and Braun Braun years and cliff jumper. I'll have a deck. Oh, that looks like the one toy Bumblebee really doesn't behead was one that was majorly black with yellow, but I got cliff jumper, so he's reading wack. So he has a he's hollow in the back. Unlike unlike gears, who has a flat back. So says a little bit different. Oso doesn't transform oh, no, no, no, no. Just. Plastic. Okay. These are imminently knock off -able, so I'm surprised that there aren't like Cao's of these out there because for what goes into this. You get your talking about ten thousand percent profit, you know, so it's but I'm really happy with it. I'm definitely I my goal is to get all of them probably not going to happen. Just I probably won't keep interest long enough to do it. But if I can get that Brion that a yellow and green, and that Bumblebee that sorta matches stealth Bumblebee, yet, we're Ourika gopher, I think, is bumpy your cliff jumper may be both. That is in the wasp colors. I think Nobis is green. Yeah, yeah. I would consider getting that. But yeah, I've got the impossible tollways out talking about node on not talk about. Or done just tuned back in. So now. My internet was a little. You were breaking up a lot. It's starting to even out now, but I wasn't sure for green green bumblebees what I heard, okay don's brand new spanking modem here is not doing its job. You had job. Yeah, I'm getting I'm I'm I speed test. I got five point one. That's the most I've ever got on five. Clint one. What five one going down? You know what the fastest I've ever gotten on going down on nine hundred thirty five? That's slightly more than mine. Yeah. Yeah. Just that's just the comparison Don should move down here union girlfriend. I'm wanting to sell this house so you guys never mind, so spider Rob's. He's saying one kilobits per second. Oh, god. You know that's that's back. That's back in the day when it would take you, you know, five thousand hours, you know estimated to download a windows update. So God would spend six hours downloading five minutes of dragon ball GT in postage stamp size. I actually I was doing on my downloading dragon ball GT in dragon ball z over my satellite internet that I had at the time. So I downloaded a super fast for about three minutes than it would go down to normal dialup speeds. So. Yeah.

"More than they were producing less time. So so they will potentially see some additional gains to revenue which will help a lot of the economy's here. Okay. Anthony, thank you very much. Rounding up the markets for our Middle East energy. Reporter Anthony dipaolo not Gulf Arab energy companies are technical more in two thousand nineteen after rising oil prices triggered a sharp retreat from debt markets and ease pressure on government. Budgets in two thousand eighteen it was a big shift from twenty seventeen when low oil prompted companies to issue record debt. Let's put the debt story in context around these markets, elbow, bigger toys, executive director and head of fixed income for the minor region at exotics, welcome to the show. Happy new year happy new year to you. So the case for for where we are with the oil. Mark take take that case, let's say fifty five sixty dollars. I'm trying to get into. Oil bond issuance for me at the sovereign level. First of all if you look at the fiscal break-even oil price in the Middle East region. And especially in DC, we have only treat country that the the price is below seventy dollars, which is the Qatar Kuwait and Dhabi or other countries have higher break-even price the Ford they will need to either top the market or the top of the reserve in northern to cover the fiscal deficit. And I think these will be substantial for countries, we large budget deficits, like among for example, that is looking to raise six point two billion in the market these year out of six point six billion fiscal deficits, so they will need to tap for under million onto shirt and Saudis looking to raise a thirty two billion in two thousand eighteen so it would be interesting looking at the actual market conditions. We'll get to the debt rollover in a moment. Just in terms of opt-out from on inside. Do you think? That's no problem. They can get kind of debt dotted level of divisions away quite easily. Well, I think there's plenty on certainty this year beside the oil prices the story concerned about global growth. And also geopolitical risk. But I think that in order to understand what is the sentiment for investor. We need to look at where the money goes where flaws goes, and if we look at the last week was eleven week week over influence in emerging markets funds. But was two hundred million the two billion the previous weeks that sell you the magnitude of they'll change the momentum of money is into the top. I think the mementos fading, but they think this will affect less the Meana region. Did you see because of the enclosure JP Morgan emerging market bond funds? These will bring Basu flows into the region will increase liquidity and therefore winning his appetite for the region. So I think beside the mind, which is a different story. The rest of the country will will will have no difficulty to raise the money. Okay. You also talk about the debt maturity in this market this year. I talked about it in China. You put the pag at two hundred twenty five billion dollars. And you the not talked about debt in Dubai running over. So put the rollover in context for me, take it into the dynamic two hundred twenty five million as you said the global emerging market US dollar bond, which sixty three billion adjusted sovereign and also maturing in the first quarter. So I kinda foresee a pickup over TV. From this week, actually and over the next three months Dubai looking to raise a million as I said Saudi they're looking to raise a substantial amount of money. So we'll be an interesting first quarter from the primary markets. So it's relevant that you're on a show in Dubai. Ten billion easily done for Dubai. I think. Is never easy but for Dubai. Yes. Looking at the current situation, it won't be too difficult. What about credit because all of the all of these bond? Markets are inextricably linked to what's going to happen with the with the feds. So give me your perspective. In terms of listening, tentatively the words of Jay Powell, and possibly, you know, how you view that prism of rates in the US. Well, the market was quite disappointed last week during.
