Tomopoll: How can Tomocast be better for you?

May 16 // Pedro Cortes
Here we go!   Additional survey questions: How can Tomocast better serve the Tomopop community? Are there any specific reasons why you do or do not listen to Tomocast? Are there any topics that you’d like to hear in the future? Are there any outside guests that you'd like to hear on Tomocast? Do you have any ideas for new segments (like Pre-Orders or What We’ve Been Up To) that you’d like to hear? Are there any general comments you have about Tomocast?

Since I took over Tomocast in February, I've been trying to make it as good as I possibly can with the limited experience I have in producing and hosting. While I feel that I've gotten better in some of those categories, I kn...

Tomocast 24: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

May 08 // Pedro Cortes

Aimee B., also from the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt OST   Things we talked about:   Star Wars vintage figures bring back the 70s.   Normandy model makes me and Chris ridiculously excited.   Shredder statue is not dopey.   Alas, I wasn't able to find that photo of me as a Ninja Turtle. Be thankful you're spared that horror.

Tomocast 23: Mecha and Robots

Apr 23 // Pedro Cortes
All musical tracks are from the Operation British chiptune album. Give it a listen, it's awesome. Opening: Super Dimensional Fortress Macross 'Macross Theme'L Break: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann 'Sorairo Days' Ending: Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory 'The Winner'   Figures discussed: Pyramid Head from Silent Hill: Homecoming will violate your wallet.   Master Grade Epyon has long, lovely legs.   This SDF-1 makes all our trousers tight.   Super Robot Chogokin GaoGaiGar has the best name for yelling out in a hot-blooded manor.   The hideous Gundams we talked about on the pod:   I don't even know what the hell this is supposed to be.   The Cuban Gundam!   If you want more mecha, hit up MAHQ's Gundamn, where Chris and his two co-hosts talk shop about everything from the latest Gundam and Macross series to classic shows from the 80s. It's good stuff.
