So what happened with those casettes that met the Kiss Players, formed a band and promptly were abandoned? Sundor, Rosanna and Glit met up with Teletraan 15. Remember on the original cartoon how the Autobots had a mega computer called Teletraan I? Well, by 2005 they’re up to the 15th model which is one of several humanoid computers developed by the Autobots to be extensions of Teletraan I. Teletraan 15 is shy and unlucky. Her closest friend is Teletraan 10 who is snarky and frustrated by 15 but ultimately helps her when needed.
Read on to hear Teletraan 15′s depressing story!

Vincent’s Comments: I have yet to see Star Trek: Into Darkness, so I guess I’m a terrible nerd. I hear there is underwear in the movie. As a male feminist, I’m incredibly offended.
While the story of Kiss Players was pretty much introduced and wrapped up in the 3-issue manga and 38 short episodes of a radio drama (released on CD with the toys), Japan continued the story of Kiss Players the following year in 2007. It was mostly an excuse to release some toys in repainted colors. But the story, she was a doozy. The girls from the first Kiss Players story got together to form a band with some Transformers. And THEN things got weird.

A short while ago my girlfriend brought up the idea of a figure of Jones aka Jonesy the cat from Alien (and Aliens) being made into a figure. The next day I tweeted NECA, the company that has a license to make figures based off the Aliens film franchise, that they should do so. Their response was, “Maybe next year.” I want them to turn that maybe into a for sure, so I’m laying out my case why Jones should be immortalized into plastic.

What is Kiss Players? It’s a 2006 toyline. It’s a Japanese radio drama. It’s a story that fits between the movie and season 3. It’s very pervy. Essentially, it’s the story of how Transformers power up with kisses from young, young girls. It also involves Optimus Prime coming back to life and dying again.

Toy Art Prints: An artist I know by Monster Fink on Twitter has some really amazing toy inspired art. You can currently purchase prints of these cool works at his Etsy store. Hopefully he keeps them available for purchase for awhile (he’s a bit temperamental), because I’d def like one or two of them when I get some more cash in my virtual pockets. The above Evil Horde work is from him. I also really like this one from Inhumaniods:

Vincent’s Comments: Data was the most valuable member of the crew on Star Trek: The Next Generation. I’d be so afraid to use him on away missions, because I wouldn’t want him killed. His one character flaw is captured here, his annoying desire to become a real boy.
This year I decided to skip trying to get any SDCC exclusives. I’m poor and while I usually have a hook up for getting some of them, sometimes they’re incredibly hard to get, leaving me stuck having to hit refresh on Hasbro Toy Shop or Matty Collector all day in the hopes of scoring it big.
Well, Hasbro has gone and made a fucking fantastic looking G.I. Joe exclusive with another Transformers / G.I. Joe mash up, which is supposedly the last in the series.

After 35 episodes, I thought I was done with Headmasters. Then Vincent said I had to pick the top 10 funniest screencaps out of all of the episodes. That’s a lot of screencaps to look at. So I looked at each one and if it made me chuckle, it went into the potential pile. Out of about 25 potentials, I whittled it down to the following:
#10. What’s on his face?
They only get better after the jump.
