In this episode, join Eddie and Jeff as they discuss one of their favorite robots to ever be birthed from the 80's, the one and only, ROBOTO!

Roboto Poster

Wait, Roboto?  Didn't MEGA already do an episode on Roboto?  Don't worry, this isn't a glitch in the Matrix!  Roboto is SO cool, that we wanted to discuss him AGAIN!  Jeff joined MEGA on Episode 29 so there were a lot of epic characters that we never got to hear his perspective, so we are going back to discuss some of them in further detail.  And let's face it, you would rather hear about Roboto than Plundor right?!

So sit back, poor yourself a bowl of Mr. T Cereal, grab your Hi-C Ecto-Cooler, and listen in on a MEGA discussion about one of the coolest robots that ever existed!

Good journey!!!

In what very much seems as Mattel's last bid to attempt to cater to kids' shifting interests in the mid/late 1980's, the toy company decided to "open the gates" on the character designs and seemingly release concepts hat had since been held back.

In the world of MOTU the base foundations of swords and sorcery were apparent,  but as the toy line and cartoon grew, so did the mythos. Not only did tiger-riding barbarians fight along side sorceresses and flying monkey-men, but now they had cyborg elephant-headed warriors and space cowboys on the team too! Some strain was beginning to show.

What seemed to hint at the engine of creation starting to stall however, was the introduction of a character to seemed to almost belong to another universe all together; part Horde warrior, part GI Joe figure, and part Transformer, this character seemed to try to be everything to everyone.

Dragstor came zooming onto the scene towards the end of the MOTU run and is generally met with a fairly tepid response by most MOTU fans as his entire design and power set is confusing when compared to the other toys in the line. That, and the lack of a toy function that did what was advertised to do in the comic and commercials, the "meh" that Dragstor was met with by children was audible.

We DO realize we're saying this with full knowledge that this universe also has a cowboy who has guns hiding in his chest and thighs.

Our take away was that by trying to appeal to everyone, this character ended up appealing to very few, but (much like your crazy Cousin Eddie) he STILL has a home in the MOTU and we're talking about him NOW!

Just when you thought you'd never need a Rebrunk Nurus in your life, along comes Mantenna to prove you wrong!

One of the villains of the Evil Horde, Mantenna was probably one of the more fun characters in that his powers and "action feature" were over the top and a straight up bonkers. His character design, and overall look were a bit scary, but still weird and cool enough to intrigue all fans of the MOTU.

Using his telescopic eyes to spy on the good guys AND using those crazy-eyes to shoot all manner of beams into their faces too?!? Hope to Procrustus that Santa is keeping an eye on you and NOT Mantenna!

Mantenna didn't play around, even if he WAS treated poorly by the other members of The Horde, he'd still give them the evil bug-eye and creep just about anyone out.

Barely featured in the mini-comics, but still loved by many, please enjoy as we discuss Mantenna on this episode of MEGA!!

K'ull'leusshhhh is his name, but you can just call him, LEECH!  I mean, who wouldn't?  We're not even sure how you pronounce that anyways! 

Leech Toy

Leech is one of Hordak's henchmen from the his loyal Horde army.  He used his magically enhanced energy-draining powers to suck enemies of their strength!  Orko was probably just about as much of a meal as a Cheeze-it, right??  He was a super fun toy to play with and definitely DIDN'T suck, unless you wanted him to....to playing cards, windows, etc.  

Either way, enjoy this episode as Jeff and Eddie continue down the "path of discussion" with the Horde!

Have you even felt like you were of two minds? One part of you wants one thing, while another part of you seems to want to do something totally different?

One part of you says to avoid that second piece of pumpkin pie, while the other half of you is saying "EAT THE WHOLE PIE YOU WIMP!!!"

Well just imagine THAT, but NOW you'd have to also buy two hats for your second head! That's these guys' whole LIFE!

On this episode we discuss the scientist, bounty hunters, who also can punch each other and feel the other guys face getting smacked, TWO BAD!!

We're pleased to announce ANOTHER GIANT SIZED EPISODE!! We're featuring the final (for now?) giant in the MOTU universe!!!

Initially planned as part of "The Powers of Grayskull" toy line, he WOULD have come stomping into our hearts as children, but alas, he was only part of a VERY limited release, mostly seen in Europe.

But NOW, Jeff owns and is proud to share with us, the MOTU Classics version of... the figure so large you'd think he was in charge...TYTUS!!!!

When you create something, let's say a podcast, it's super fun to hear people's feedback (especially when it's positive).  

It's even MORE fun when you get (great) feedback, AND when the person responding begins creating sweet, sweet art because your podcast (in part) reignited their interest in that particular subject!

THIS EXACT THING just happened to US!! After meeting at O Comic Con and bouncing a bunch of fun and creative ideas off each other, we decided to sit down with the one and only Lee Bokma to discuss his amazing art, his fandom of all things involving barbarians, and MORE!

ON our newest thrilling episode, Jeff and Eddie discuss the coolest dude with the puffiest sleeves, the daddy to He-Man, and the one true king of Eternia, King Randor!

Lovingly nicknamed "The Burger King", Randor has gotten his fair share of ribbing.

One of the last few figures to be released, and often used as THE example of how Prince Adam fooled everyone into not knowing he was He-Man, King Randor was a tough figure to sell us on when we were kids.

But that doesn't stop him from kicking a little booty AND from appearing in over a dozen mini-comics!!

Not too shabby for THIS clueless king!
