This episode is full of bombs. Both the explody-Universal Studios type ones, and the box office flops that nobody likes to talk about. Yes, it's time to talk about Waterworld. Kevin Costner at his problematic best in the middle of the ocean: what could possibly go wrong. But at least the toys were cool? Trent for the affirmative. Then it's our Patreon Hot Takes Part Deux and boy do things get a little spicy. There's fence sitting, high horses and some very silly silliness. BOOM!

They solve crimes and captivate our attention. Detectives on TV! Since at least the late 1930s, detectives have been a staple of television shows. Most are procedurals like the "Law & Order" contingent, a bunch are from prestige dramas a la "Sherlock," some are comedies (think "Monk" or “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), and some are even animated ("Inspector Gadget" counts!). But regardless, there's something intrinsically fascinating about watch brilliant minds crack cases in an hour or less. And now, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to determine: Who is the Best TV Detective of all time? Join Host Eric Rezsnyak, GPCD panelists Amy Pilott and Kate Racculia, and special guest Josh Duggan from the Munch My Benson podcast as they discuss 16 of the most iconic detectives from television past and present. To listen to Round 1, showing how we got to the Sleuthing 16 down from the Top 32, become a Patreon supporter of the podcast today to access the exclusive Part 1 episode.

This week on the Toy Power Podcast, we have some Hot Take Statements that where submitted by our awesome Patreons. We go through some of them and go around the room unpacking the statement, whether we agree, or disagree to it. The power of nostalgia comes into question. Of course some of the biggest franchises come under fire; such as Batman, Star Wars & TMNT. The ease of custom 3D printing vs mass production? What about movies with a connected universe versus the good old standalone film? All this and more, as we only scratch the surface of this now on-going sub-topic. Then we each turn around, and review how each of us are tackling our own personal collections, with a bit of a State Of The Nation focus. In rounding out we actually swing back to the Hot Take topic, for an unplanned discussion. Enjoy!Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

This week on the Toy Power Podcast, we are joined in studio with Steve Ready. We have the usual get-to-know-you questions; and then its into our main topic, which starts off being on the micro scale. Yes, in the same format of Polly Pocket & Mighty Max, Steve is renowned enthusiast for the Micro Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toyline.

Then we raise the scale by a little bit, in order to chat about Steve's involvement in the Lego Community. Everything from Christmas Themed dioramas and the challenges to get it done, to Steve managing the local Lego events.

This week on the Toy Power Podcast, its all about the Latest news! Another big week with several Conventions happening over in the USA. First off the ranks, we touch base on how well the latest HasLab is going, in the form of Giant-Man. Then its an unusual cross-over of Skeletor & VeeFriends? The Super Cyborg Krang Android is amazing, and very worthy of spot on your shelf as an upgrade of the Playmates version! An absolutely beautiful version of Supergirl from Revoltech; then a big "Skelebration" checklist from Mattel, including both Origins & Masterverse figures. Fraggle Rock wave 2 from Boss Fight Studios are incredible, but the Holocomm Star Wars Collection has us scratching our heads for many reasons.... The Ultimate GITD Radiation Ranger & Cobra MotherShip from Super 7 are both simply amazing, and rounding out the news is the announcement of Eternia's Choice Winner of the Snake Lair!

Today on the Toy Power Podcast, we are joined by a special guest and fellow SA collector Damien. He's a rare breed of collector who manages to keep his passion for one line and one line only: the 80's classic Jem and the Holograms! It was a time of flashing earrings, shoulder pads and face-paint so Damien takes us through the brand from conception at Hasbro to production. What famous show (beyond on her own) was Jem attached too? Was she even called Jem to begin with? We love figures with multiple accessories, but Jem takes it to another level with a staggering amount of outfits in a dizzying amount of colours. But is it all about the fashion, or the music? Or the Keytar?? Learn about the 80s corporate espionage and subterfuge that was Jem vs Barbie – it was big big money, so much so, one former employee banked some serious coin: and it might not be who you think! Can you have a love-triangle with two people? Hey, it was the 80s… We also get to peek at some seriously rare product – stuff you will literally never see again! Like many other 80s brands, is there a big reboot in the works? Then it's a quick round of Reading Watching Playing featuring Netflix, ABC Kids and a a book that reads to its author? Frank then ends the show with a special announcement that bodes well for the future of Toy Power… Follow Damien and his amazing collection @truly_truly_truly_outrageousSupport the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
