The breaking of the 63rd seal of the Roboplastic Apocalypse is the rumbling, clanky crashing sound of giant robot zombies with laser breath chasing you in your beat up old Dodge on your way to PALMCON 2013! Yes it's a RE PALM-ERATION CONCASTALYPSE as the Nostrodomatron travels to the Palm Beach County Convention Center for the third Palm Con to talk to illustrator José Delbo about his recent return to Transformers comics in last week's Regeneration One #0! Listen in bonus horror as I'm joined on the con floor by Orlandonian puppeteer Jack Fields and we encounter cyborg dolphins, GoBots that are not Transformers, Jawas, Transformers that are GoBots, and even a Dianoga or two. Plus I even get to talk to long time super toy collector Irving Santiago about collecting toys back when collecting toys wasn't cool! How much did I pay for a couple of carded G2 Go-Bots on the floor of Palm Con? How much did Irving Santiago pay for a ton of G1 jets on clearance in the 80s? How excited was José Delbo to return to Transformers? What kind of people knowingly jump into a trash compactor? Find out all that and more in this NOT TOO SHORT FOR A PALM 3 edition of the podcastalypse!

Action figure everything collector extraordinare Irving Santiago!

He drew Transformers when I was a teenage robot comics fan-José Delbo!

You could have all sorts of fun with your palms here!

Jack enjoying the dolphins, dianogas, and dangerous dart robots.

Irving's selection of Hasbronians and GoBotronians was like a mini Smithsonian.

I have been promoted to the rank of Best Delbo Fan ever and here is my certificate.

Chewie didn't get a girlfriend, either. I got the GoBots for $3.50 each.

PalmCon featured one stop shopping for all your being dead needs.

    Coming soon!

Special guest Jack Fields and I fire up the GoBackatron 1977thousand for a look back at the first year of Micronauts! This one's about Elvis, it's about the Bee Gees, it's about the Star Wars, but mostly it's about Darth Vader centaurs with laser beam eyes. Proper show notes later but for now all you need to know is that Jack's film Happy Memories is screening at PalmCon this weekend!

We are all a bunch of toy people (and other reasons the Annunaki like to mess with us)

Like a long dreaded visit from the sun's evil twin Nibiru, the 61st episode of the Roboplastic Podcastalypse is finally upon us! Marvel at the hidden knowledges I uncover as I report from the floor of Tampa Bay Comic Con 2013 in search of interviews with toy robot collecting illuminati Ed Sanford of and legendary artist/illustrator Pat Broderick. Revelations abound as I get to hear which one of them is creating an ancient alien comic on the origins of mankind and which one of them is doing an ancient toy robots party in Florida. I also get to hear one dollar GoBots cause a mass extinction of money from my wallet. Plus I finally get to do a segment called "Things I Always Wanted to ask Pat Broderick". Listen to me seize this rare opportunity by asking the classic Marvel Micronaut artist trivial stuff like what is the correct pronunciation of "Commander Rann" and forgetting to ask him important stuff like who would win in a fight between Darth Vader and Baron Karza. When is the next Robot-Japan Summit? What did Pat Broderick think about the Annunaki-ish engineers in Prometheus? How much can one man learn about life, the place of mankind in the universe, and the current secondary market value of loose GoBots in Tampa Bay? Find out all that and more in this PARADISE MAY HAVE ALL THE GOLD BUT I'LL BE DOWN HERE WITH ALL THE ROBOTS edition of the podcastalypse!

I finally got to talk Micronauts (and Annunaki) with Pat Broderick!

TBCC'13 had lots and lots of robots. New ones, old ones, and even some Ro-Guns.
