The destruction of the 52nd seal of the Roboplastic Apocalypse is the sound of the Nostrodomatron crashing and smashing and parking and swapping into your parking space in an explosion of tables and tables of roboplasticos! Yes it was time for Tate's Comics Park and Swap 2013 and I was there with a van full of robotastic swappage ready to destroy countless customers' lives one toy robot at a time. Thrill to my incredible adventures as I relate swashbuckling highlights of my legendary experience selling used robots for ten bucks from the back of my van in the parking lot of a comic book store. What is the secret of the $250 devirginized Trypticon? What excuses did potential customers give me for wanting to buy Kiss Players Convoy? What excuses did I make to keep customers from buying my Fort Max? Find out all this and less in this HOW MUCH IS THAT FORT MAXIE IN THE WINDOW? edition of the podcastalypse!

Or download it directly

This is what it would look like if Darth Vader and Cobra Commander had a yard sale.

The early bird gets the Scream! I hadn't even unloaded everything yet and there were already robot guys!

This was by far the best table!
