Episode 174

It's back to Illnois in 1980 this week, as Glenn, Phil and Becca spotlight a true Eighties classic - The Blues Brothers! They also trawl the depths of the news pipe, and prepare to be disappointed as the UK Toy Fair news turns out to be a little lighter than expected, just wait until you find out why! We have a bonus section too this week dear listener, as we finally get round to answering someof your questions - keep sending them in, BTTE fans! Stay tuned for next week's episode, as Gerry Anderson month will start with an organ harvesting bang, as Becca wil be spotlighting the 1970 classic series UFO!

Episode 173

There's a full compliment to the BTTE crew this week - just in time for Glenn to make an announcement for future spotlights for the podcast! This week though, it's back to 1982 for a look at a Japanese puppet show that many of you may have forgotten...not for long! We also have all the news that's fit to talk about this week, including MOTU news, Transformers Age of Extinction toy news and even convention news which will have Gerry Anderson fans all of a fluster!

Episode 172

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014! We'd like to start off slowly this year (as everyone does when they go back to work, right?), so Glenn, Phil, Becca and Sam will all regail us with tales of Christmas and what they got for their prezzies! They also discuss two other very important aspects of Christmas, name Doctor Who and Sherlock and how this year's offerings fared, and how the future might look for these two programmes. Add in a smidgin of news (because there's not that much) and you have an episode that's full to the brim of rich new year goodness.
