TRN Podcast 042 – Random Action Figures

Jason and Mickey return to dig to the bottom of their toyboxes to find those random action figures we had as kids. First, we talk about some of the content we have been streaming lately while on self quarantine from the virus. We then run down this week’s Recurrent Events headlines which include:

  • Doogie Howser reboot at Disney+
  • Retro shows on the Filmrise streaming channel
  • CBS resurrects Sunday movie night
  • Spawn action figure and comic remastered on Kickstarter
  • Mountain Dew Doritos

In this week’s TRN Time Machine segment sponsored by the RetroDaze, Jason and Mickey put the spotlight on random action figures we had as kids. Included in our discussion are knockoffs of popular toylines, some that just caught our eye in the toy aisle, and others that just didn’t last very long. We received a ton of feedback from Twitter that we’ll read back to add to the conversation.Here’s the link to Mickey’s Retro Ramblings post for M.U.S.C.L.E. figures mentioned during the podcast.

We finish up this week’s show by giving you the two options for next week’s topic poll on Twitter. We’ll also mention everything this coming week on The Retro Network and our Patreon page.
