Hello and welcome to a brand new episode and series of The Full Force! I am Christopher ‘Manquief’ McLeod aka Diagnostik80 and on this beat em up of a show we are beginning a journey into our alternative combined universe with a look at a group of completely different brands that have links to G.I. Joe and Action Force and we start with a brand that has been a staple of many an 80’s and 90’s kid’s life since its inception, Street Fighter 2!! Joining me on this punchy and kicky show are Paddy ‘Slaggat’ Lennon, Brian ‘Dhalsim-card for an iPhone’ Hickey, Adam ‘Tiger Upper****’ Riches, Erik ‘Hundred Wang Slap’ Arana, Eddie ‘Spining Turd Kick’ Inman and Dave ‘Shadowpoo’ Tree. On this episode we’ll be Shoryukenning the NEWS directly in the Balrogs with Justin ‘Absolute ****ing Blanka’ Bell of General’s Joes fame, we look at the history of the Street Fighter brand and the G.I. Joe related toy line in the FIGURE REVIEW, we look at some hilarious Hasbro product catalog pre-production Street Fighter 2 figures in FROM THE VAULT, Chris caught up with IDW writer on the brand new Transformers Vs Visionaries comic, Magdalene Visaggio in an INTERVIEW to discuss just how easy it is to write a story about giant robots and magic, dystopian future-knights, we have one single incoming Shadowloo correspondence in the MAIL CALL and of course WHAT WE GOT IN and SHOUTOUTS to cap off another classic episode that we can hopefully keep under 9 hours this time for all you Street Fightin’ Scumbags out there!!.…..FULL FORSHORYUKEN!!!

You should already know the answer to that!
