RCP vs FF - EP 84: Power Rangers Steroid Force!

Sorry folks but this week it's 2 editions of the fanfic podcast. We've had some trouble with the review podcast but hopefully it should be up sometime next week.

In the meantime why not check out this 'delightful' fanfic we found where the entire team is on steroids. ... Only the Power Rangers fandom folks!

Stardub - 2.14: Sometimes the bear gets you, sometimes you nuke the bear from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

Battle Beasts Issue 1 from IDW Publishing kicks off this episode, as we see not only the return of this slightly obscure toy franchise, but also card covers to IDW comics. Ralph also regales us with his surefire way to stopping a bear. Though it's not without some drawbacks, or should I say fallout.

MASK Issue 4 June 1987 published by DC Comics is so interesting that we end up testing Ralph's knowledge of 1980's America pro-wrestlers.

Warheads Issue 1 from Marvel UK reveals a rare criticism of purveyor of childhood joy Geoff Senior from one of the duo? Which one - well you'll need to listen.

Making their Triumphant return is Triumphant comics. We will be looking at The Chromium Man Issue 1 and Unleashed Issue 0. It's a tag team of turd in four colours. Also. One of these comics lets us down, even more than you thought possible.

Lucky listener Philip Ayres will get to determine the fate of these two comics, but you dear listener will need to wait till 2.15.

Stardub - 2.13: Recriminations None

We kick things off talking about Laser Mission (a.k.a. Soldier of Fortune) in tribute to the passing of Ernest Borgnine.

We talk of our recent trip to Glasgow Comic Con, anecdotes about Chicken Farming and the Aids Suggestion Box in DC Comics and spend a lot of time proclaiming our love of Jim Starlin and Thanos.

We talk about Issue 81 of Regeneration One from IDW Publishing as the Transformers comics of 20 years ago continue and meet possibly their harshest critics. Will these comics pass muster?

The episode is rounded out with our thoughts on a recent cinematic excursion on the opening day of The Amazing Spider-Man – no we didn’t see that we went to watch the rerelease of the 1967 Hammer film version of Quatermass and the Pit.

[REVIEW] Why You Should Care About Gutto Kuru

Friend of the Nerdsphere, WTF@TFW's GogDog (Who recently stood in for Timey on the Shut Up & Watch This! podcast for the Persona 4 Roundtable) posted this detailed review on the highly articulated Gutto Kuru toyline.

[PODCAST] Vaudiosonic - Episode 1: Apollo Change!

Note: Podcast was originally recorded on April 18th 2011. Show presented here with kind permission from Vangelus from it's original appearance from "That Guy With The Glasses" and the websites.

Realizing that they are a pair of hot-blooded men who enjoy some live-action special effects, Vangelus calls up Apollo Z. Hack to chat about Tokusatsu and why they dig it.

RCP - EP 134: KO Toy Repaint Adventure!

RCP is short for 'Random Crap Podcast' btw folks. The good people here at the Nerdsphere were worried there might be some confusion.

Regardless I do hope you all enjoy our Nerdsphere Network debut with this review of a terrible dub by Joseph Lai of a Korean movie called 'Solar Adventure'. A movie so bad words cannot describe it, only this short YouTube clip can. Why not judge for yourself by listening and thank you in advance.

Stardub - 2.12: The dress code is Top Cat and Tales

Okay so instore for you this episode, a brief overview of the 2D Comic Festival which our team attended this year. We liked the festival, we hated the quiz and we will tell you why, with some swearing. We take a cinematic double bill of mind-staggering proportions in the guise of Top Cat: The Movie and Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. There is anger and there is disappointment, is it confined to one of these films or both? Listen on.

Who’s Who in the DC Universe Issue gets looked at, or more importantly one page gets a look – the villainous Angle Man – for no reason other than the art accompanying his bio was drawn by none other than Jose Delbo. (Yes, Angle Man is doing a Delbo-pose)

Sh1ts and Googles has the words “saffron” and “walden” – suggested by Nerdsphere overlord – Timey2Wimey.

Available from HERE and to download via iTunes.
