Hot damn, you've got to love the summer months. All of you favorite companies are ganging up to show you the toys that you're going to drool over during the summer months. Then, of course, try to figure out how to pay for said toys when they release late this year or early next year.

I say this because the latest event is the main subject of the latest episode of the Tomocast. I'm joined once again by Andres and Tian to talk about Megahobby Expo, as well as the top news stories that have hit our glorious site. So go ahead and follow us on iTunes, directly download the episode here or hit the jump to stream it and get the show notes. Enjoy!

Hey folks, welcome back to the Tomocast. In this episode, we learn a very important lesson: do not poke or annoy Andres on a bad day. He'll turn heel on you faster than you can say swerve.

On the toy end of things, we cover the best of the news from the last two weeks, including:

  • the Miyazawa Model Exhibition
  • a toy based off of one mean mutha
  • a pricey robot
  • a legendary figure that may or may not exist
  • and more!

Welcome back to the Tomocast! Once again, I'm joined by Andres Cerrato and Rio McCarthy, back from the adventure known as life. Since the three of us have been in the same approximate area in the recent past, we're buzzing with excitement to talk about the latest and great news from the last two weeks. That's what happens when you happen to collide in meat-space: happiness, bounciness and a strange desire to talk about toys. Must be a sign of something wonderful. Or something awful, still working that one out.

SURPRISE TOMOCAST!

Due to scheduling difficulties, I wasn't able to get a question post up. My deepest apologies, dearest Tomocast listeners. To make up for it, I brought on a trio of guests that will surely entertain you. To help me discuss Sunrise's Mobile Suit Gundam franchise, I brought Chris Guanche and SoulBroRyu on from MAHQ's Gundamn!, along with user Jabman025. These fine gents sat down and talked to me about how they got into Bandai's mega-cash cow and the impact robots have made on their wallets.

You can download the episode here, follow us iTunes or stream the episode after the jump. Also, don't forget to leave us some reviews on iTunes. Enjoy!
