Episode 4- Popbot Primer

To download, "right-click" and "save link as" HERE.

In this episode, I take my first pass at tackling Ashley Wood's comic series Popbot. I give a brief publishing history of the book, then pop my knuckles and give a (mostly) spoiler-free summary and cursory analysis of the series. I also touch on the different threeA releases to date that have their origin in the Popbot series.

The ThreeA Legion Member Spotlight segment also continues; this time, I chat with Bot Bambina & NoCash, a threeA collecting couple who are also veteran members of the threeA forums.

In keeping with the Popbot theme, this episode also features a review of one of the earliest threeA releases from the PopBot series- The 1/6 Tomorrow King Aki figure.

All this, plus Gimbat's News and a few other surprises, coming to you in episode 4 of the threeA radio fan podcast!
