Episode 247: When Toys Age Badly

• April 25th, 2022

After covering Joe toys that have gone from zero to hero in our eyes, it's only fair that we ask the inverse: which toys did we buy thinking we'd love... only to now think dramatically less of?

Plus we answer the age old questions like who would win in a fight: Batman or Captain America; and does anyone really love Spearhead?!?
