Nerdsphere Hall Of Fame: Class of 2012!

Another "Official" Hall of Fame has been and gone, and unfortunately our golden boy didn't make it in. However, this has given me the inspiration to open up our very own Hall of Fame! Each year, a character or characters who we feel are "Due a win" will enter our hallowed halls and will be immortalized with the greats. So, without further ado, the participants in our inaugural ceremony is.....


We at the Nerdsphere, Full Metal Hero and many other places have been clamoring for Scrounge's inclusion in the Hasbro Hall of Fame, but it simply wasn't to be. He has, however, found a place in our hearts and this is our way of saying thanks to a true hero.


Unlike our beloved Scrounge, Wheeljack DID get a Hall of Fame placement! For years at the Nerdsphere, Wheeljack has been "Due a win" and has fallen at every hurdle. However, he rose above it all, and strived for victory! Not only that, but he continues to fight adversity from pessimistic fans. A true warrior.


A true craftsman of the arts. Kyle was responsible for the safe transportation of many a away team (Often led by the captain, the first officer and it's chief medical officer) to a hostile planet. A gentleman and a scholar through and through, Kyle is only crewmember deemed worthy of a HoF entry!


What is there to say? Dan Hibiki is the true star of Street Fighter. Guaranteed to always be the talking point at parties.


Well, it is what is it...

Congratulations to everybody who got in, and lets hear it for the NERDSPHERE HALL OF FAME, CLASS OF 2012!

Grufflock of The Old Oil House podcast demanded that we speak of Zoids and in particular the Marvel UK comic. Which we had no qualms in doing. He also hijacked Shits and Googles and suggested Ralph search for an image search and the words “Moomin” and “Costume”.

The show ends with Ralph exacting revenge on Andy for the Moomin DVD.

Back to the Eighties - Episode 100

Lawks a Lordy! Back to the Eighties is 100 editions old today! Just think of all that time we've spent together. We could have been doing something constructive, like putting up shelves, or bothering crows with pipe cleaners.

Ah, memories.

Still, Glenn and Phil have been busy this time around, listening to your messages of adoration and support, spotlighting possibly the most polarising Transformers series ever in Masterforce, and reporting on all of the news happenings in our favourite toylines this week.

All this, AND question answering? Surely, Ambassador, you are spoiling us.

Stardub - 2.6: Thinking of the Chinese People

From Bot-Shots to British Homing World.

We cast a critical eye over a couple of the Marvel Big Looker Transformers books – Insecticon Attack and Car Show Blow Up. We say critical – you know we love Transformers we aren’t going to give them a kicking.

Shits and Googles – “Fish” and “Fondler” reveal a slightly touching aspect of the hobby of fly fishing.

Bringing the episode to a close we look at The Dalek Chronicles – A Marvel UK special from David Fennell and David Whitaker with art by Richard Jennings and Ron Turner. A collection of the 60′s Daleks strips. A hard-to-find comic and one we both recommend you try and track down.
