Happy Boxing Day: Unbox this Transformers video clip!

I trust everyone has been making merry this week. As an extra merry treat, Takara/Tomy has shared this stop-motion video highlighting their Masterpiece Transformers line. Transformers – roll out, and a happy new year! Tweet

Podcast addendum: Your childhood is for sale

In the most recent TOT podcast (S05E13), we lament the usage of iconic musicians and actors for commercial gain. Well, Honda has upped the ante, using classic 80’s toys to appeal to Generation X. The He-Man reference I made was just a half-remembered Robot Chicken bit, but Honda is way ahead of me. The commercial […]

I eagerly await The Repeater’s assesment of this turn of events.

The Antares, carrying an unmanned Cygnus spacecraft from Orbital Sciences was to tote some provisions up to the International Space Station, but you get the idea how that’s turned out. I’ll stop paraphrasing. Fortunately, no loss of life. Just a bruised ego. A very, very expensive ego. See the details with video here. Tweet

Halloween = Big-Time Cosplay!

It’s October and Halloween is upon us. The gang at BeatDownBoogie, as always, does not disappoint with their footage from DragonCon 2014. It is harder and harder to name every character I see, especially with all of the variations and mash-ups. Watch for what I can only describe as “Hawaiian Vacation Cobra Commander.” Below are […]

Bigfoot: Testing the Fences in Our Own Backyard!

What is the devious plan of this rogue Sasquatch? Does he plan to go tag team on our asses […]

…so odd, and so wrong!

The Tower may be vacant for a well-deserved vacation, but you can’t take the Tower out of the gang. The Repeater always has his ear to the ground for a Bigfoot story, and he emailed the group this latest bit of GEEK NEWS, a sort of mini BIGFOOT ROUNDUP. Have you guys seen this? It’s […]

Small Victories

Small victories. I’ll take ’em where I can get ’em. The Transformers brand is all over the place currently, but at least we get the classic characters in their classic designs with merchandise aimed at the kiddie crowd. Here we have G1-styled Prime, Bumblebee and Grimlock costumes for Mr. Potato Head, and you can ever […]

Show them you love them with the Hate Plague.

Sometimes when I’m listening to the Tower gang I forget I’m not actually on the podcast that week and start talking to them. This was one of those weeks. When they were discussing 28 Days Later, I was reminded of the classic 2-part episode of The Transformers: “The Return of Optimus Prime.” (Spoiler alert: Optimus […]
