The Amazing Spider-Man


  1. Just listened to the first episode. Really enjoyed it. I'm going to be a regular listener from now on!

    1. Thanks man! I really appreciate it! Brad and I are great friends and always have a wonderful time getting together and chatting. If you have any topics you would like for us to cover or questions you would like us to answer, feel free to let me know!

    2. If something comes to mind, I sure will. Listened to ep 2 as well now - and I'm hooked! It's great getting some extra commentary on the reviews I've read on the blog. Gonna be a long wait for the monthly broadcast!

  2. Enjoyed the "Force Friday" episode. Kinda would've liked to go to this for some of the 6" Black figures - but around here pretty much a non-event. Aside from living in South Africa, I also live in a fairly small town a bit away from a main centre. BBTS to the rescue - but dang, why do they have to release so many all on top of each other - ouch my wallet :P.

    Something you may or may not have heard about is the move Disney/Revell have pulled restricting Bandai to only supplying it's Star Wars kits inside Japan (and this includes online retailers). The modelling community is not at all pleased as the Bandai kits are streets ahead in quality of the stuff Revell releases. Kinda shitty to put pressure on to block a superior product from the market - consumers be damned.

  3. We need to get back to doing the collection agency podcast this holiday season!-thereelbradbell

    1. Absolutely. I'm looking forward to the Re-Halloween special this afternoon!
