The breaking of the 84th seal of the Roboplastic Apocalypse is the sound of the clock tick, tick, ticking down the seconds until JOELANTA 2017! Listen 'n fun as the Nostrodomatron rushes to get a bunch of broken toys in beat up boxes all dressed up like it's 1985 again! Thrill 'n anxiety as I prepare for my Joelanta panel that's more than meets the price in hopefully enough time to more than beat the clock! Will I peel the stickers off 33 year old Transformers so they'll look new again? Will I open brand new reissued Transformers so they'll look old again? How tough is it to match the photography of toy ads from 1984? Am I committing time crimes against nostalgia when my ad recolorizations show up in google search results for old store circulars? AND IS THIS THE END OF THE PODCASTALYPSE? ONLY SHIA NO-NO-NO-NO-NOs!

THE SECRET FORMULA REVEALED
IT TAKES A LOT OF PAYING ATTENTION TO SCREW THINGS UP THIS BADLY
This paragraph was supposed to be a deeply insightful, behind-the-scenes exploration of how I take pictures of toys and turn them into pictures of toys with little prices and Hasbro logos on top of them. And also how I learned that it's pretty hard to take pictures of toy robots as halfassedly as most product photographers did back in 1984, but there's no time! I need to go finish my JoeLanta panel so you can see my naked seeker jets and hear how thirty three year old Dinobot ads confuse me! Or actually I think that's what this episode is about. So listen and find out how getting bitten by radioactive Google search results gave me the proportionate strength and speed of a time travelling K-Mart ad.
OW! OW! OW! OW! OW! OW!
