Time to have a look two of the Nick TMNT toys: this week it's the original and "stealth" versions of everyone's favourite nerdy turtle, Donatello!

Episode 191

It was Botcon last weekend, so we're having a little bit of a special Newsround this week, as Becca, Sam and Glenn talk about all of the various goings on and amazing announcements at this year's main Transformers Expo. Becca's also spotlighting the various Sherlock Holmes series made by Granada in the 80's and early 90's, starring the supremely talented and much missed Jeremy Brett. We also talk about the live television moments that stick in our huge nostalgic brains, as well as a couple of movies we're looking forward to, and of course, the latest announcements from LFCC, which is only TWO WEEKS AWAY.

Episode 190

Join the gang this week, as they experience the eldritch horror that is Small god. They also report on all of the news that's worth reporting on this week, such as a great new SDCC set for Transformers, some MAJOR news for MOTU, all the Star Wars news (luckily this week we're not telling Harrison Ford to break a leg) and even some Thunderbirds news! It's all going on this week, guv'nor.

MOTU Classics He-Man

This week it's time to check out the Most Powerful Man in the Universe, as we take a look at the Masters of the Universe Classics He-Man, and I wax lyrical about my memories of the big guy.

Episode 189

As promised last week, we have a very special guest on this week's show. It's Jenny from World of Crap, her wonderful nostalgic website that covers all the great 80's experiences from He-Man to Bullseye! She joins Sam and Glenn as they discuss the wonderful and sometimes bizarre world of 80's daytime telly, which had not yet felt the caress of Jeremy Kyle, nor the taint of Homes Under the Hammer. Good times. A very big thanks to Jenny for coming on the show this week, and believe me, she will be back! Sadly, the news is not all good this week, as we've lost a legend. RIP Rik Mayall. Just in case the grown ups ask, that's why the kids are crying.

Dread Tidings: Knock Off Devastator

Hot off the shelves of B&M, here's the "Alien Terminator" that's a complete knock off of G1 Devastator!

Episode 188

It's a full compliment this week, as the crew get down and dirty with one of the true iconic TV programmes of the Eighties, Knight Rider! Let's face it, it doesn't GET more Eighties than that. There's also NEWS! Lots of news. SO MUCH NEWS. From Transformers (where the house is divided on the subject of the SDCC set) to Masters (where Jii clues us all in on a great discovery he's made) to Star Wars (where there's been lots of great developments to Episode VII, including JJ trolling the interwebz) to Ghostbusters (30 years? Really?) and even a bit of TMNT news thrown in for good measure (we still can't wait for this movie). It's a full show, to be sure. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's BACK TO THE EIGHTIES.

It's Transformers time again, and we're going to be having a look at one of the Big Bads from Fall of Cybertron, the big beefy bruiser that is Bruticus! The Dude-icus.

Dread Tidings: A Poundland & Cheap "Lego" Special

It's time for a look at the current Transformers knock-offs frequenting Poundland folks, as well as a look at another range by Funtastic, and some cheapy cheap "Lego". You get what you pay for, that's all I'm saying.
