Super Chillin' Robo Villian!

The exploderation of the 59th seal of the Roboplastic Apocalypse is a South Floridian Independence Day roboconvention extravaganza! What was there to do in Miami on Fourth of July weekend? If you were a guy dressed up as Hun-Dred the Conqueror there was really only one place to go without getting beat up or arrested-Florida Supercon 2013! Yes it was the annual techspectacular spectacle where about five guys dressed up as cardboard robots and the other 24,995 attendees knew better. Your brain will declare its independence as I celebrate the birth of America by roaming the convention looking to meet my Transformerian heroes of Hasbronian toy robots comics and cartoons. Your earholes will fight for their freedom as I complain about how people don't know how to act around voice actors and then have a nervous breakdown over my failing imaginary personal relationship with Gregg Berger. What's José Delbo up to nowadays? How cheap could you score a Takatoku GBP-1S armor set at the show? Which possible Tyrannosaurian spoilers about Transformers 4 did I not record anyone maybe saying? And why is it so hard for me to maintain my Facebook friendships with cartoon robot dinosaurs? Find out all this and more in this MY VOICE IS ALWAYS MAKING SCARY ROBOT NOISES edition of the Podcastalypse!
