I don't know how this has happened but somehow we've managed to make a podcast about a line that had one series of toys, one season of a cartoon and a small comic run, that is OVER 8 HOURS LONG!!!! On this magically lit episode we find ourselves in New Valarak on the Planet of Prysmos as we continue our mission to cover all of the Hasbro and IDW franchises in the combined universe, this time it’s the turn of the Visionaries!! Joining me on the podcast are a team of brave Spectral Knights chosen by Merklyn himself!! We have Troy ‘Sh*tterquick’ McKie, Eddie ‘Darkring Lord’ Inman and Dave ‘Rectal Knight’ Tree!! Tonight, we raise our magical staffs and release our animal totems (they’re all weasels) to bring you the NEWS courtesy of Justin ‘how do you turn off this magical light’ Bell at General’s Joes, a fantastic INTERVIEW with the writer for the original Visionaries cartoon, Buzz Dixon and we are joined by David and Steve Mapes, the guys behind TheVisionaries.net, to look at the history of the Visionaries toy line in the FIGURE REVIEW and to show us some cool never-before-seen items in the biggest FROM THE VAULT we’ve ever attempted!! We read all your messages and tweets in the MAIL CALL, we have a brand new COMPETITION to win an NYCC Exclusive G.I. Joe Funko Destro figure and let’s not forget WHAT WE GOT IN and SHOUTOUTS to cap off yet another massive show for all you new age magicians…..Those who control the magic, control…..THE FULL FORCE!!
OOOH WEEE!!! Have we got a treat for you.....Yes, yes we have!! Over the past few months we have been taking a closer look into the combined universe of franchises and brands that make up Hasbro and IDW's new Revolution, First Strike and cinematic projects. On this particular occasion we have M, M, M, M.A.S.K. and it must be a record in length (wahey) for us, clocking in at close to 6 hours!!! Due to this rather large undertaking we have asked the Computer (aka Chris McLeod aka Diagnostik80 aka ‘vehicle codename: Sly Crax’) to select the best presenters for this job based on the power of their helmets (ooohhh)!! Joining us on this mega episode are; Troy ‘vehicle codename: T-Nob’ McKie, Paddy ‘vehicle codename: Lepre-Condor’ Lennon, Brian ‘vehicle codename: Rhine-hole’ Hickey, Eddie ‘vehicle codename: Clackhammer’ Inman and Dave ‘vehicle codename: Grundle-Slingsh*t’ Tree!! We have crammed a lot into this one including; the NEWS brought to you by Justin ‘vehicle codename: Bellboard Blast’ Bell at General's Joes, two, count them, TWO, amazing INTERVIEWS with Brandon Easton, writer of IDW's M.A.S.K. comic and Doug Stone, the voice actor behind Matt Trakker and a number of other M.A.S.K. characters from the original cartoon (amongnst many other things), a history of the toy line in the FIGURE REVIEW, some very cool unreleased items in FROM THE VAULT, a bulging MAIL CALL sack, incredibly we somehow managed to get something in since the very recent previous episode for WHAT WE GOT IN?, all the deserving people get props in SHOUTOUTS and we are giving away a True Heroes Sentinel 1 U-53 Helicopter in the COMPETITION because we are awesome!! Add to that some brand new music created specially for this stand alone episode utilising samples from the original cartoon music and you have a pretty stacked show!! ..........SPECTRUM ON.......FULL FORCE!!!!!
