Action Features Podcast Episode 80:
The One Where We Should Have Rated It “Meh”
7/17/2015

It is that time of year again... Time for the Action Features boys to give you their thoughts on all the recently revealed pop culture goodness from San Diego Comic-Con! Tune in to find out which toy company they think had the strongest showing (it might surprise you) and which were the weakest, what movie trailers soared and which bored, and which comics... Oh wait. There wasn't really exciting comic book news that came out of COMIC-con. Hmm.... Well, we will replace that with a special Top Five list from Blaze instead. Yeah, that sounds better. So get ready... Time for Action Features.

Action Features Special:
NECA Planet Of The Apes
MEGO Tribute Commercial 2

Much like we did with the MOTU Classics & the Star Wars Black Series lines, I thought it would be fun to try and remake the vintage MEGO Planet of the Apes commercials using the NECA figures! This is a remake loosely based on the original Forbidden Zone Trap commercial from the vintage line. The original audio has been tweaked quite a bit to fit the figures currently available from NECA. Hope ya like it! -James

Action Features Podcast Episode 79:
The One Where We Are Totally Fine With Contradicting Ourselves
7/3/2015

Yeah, they are a week behind again... But the Action Features boys are back with a brand new edition. What's in this episode? Well, lots of good stuff that's for sure. Stuff like Jurassic World movie & toy feedback, tips for snacks at the gym, thoughts on the current "PC hysteria", and a lip-smacking review of the best pastry in town. You know there's more to it than just that though, since this episode clocks in it almost an hour long. I won't spoil anything else for ya. Leave something to your imaginations... Time for Action Features.

Action Features Podcast Episode 78:
The One Where We Whipped Too Much Of The Zip
6/12/2015

Hey all... Ready for some Action Features? Good, because there's a new episode right here. What is in this one? Well, the boys chat about a bunch of stuff like Thor in the Ghostbusters reboot, hot dogs in your pizza, retitling Episode VII, Jurassic World toys, and Miracle Whip at the beach. But that is all just an appetizer for the main course- A discussion on Kenner's Robin Hood Prince of Thieves toy line (per the request of one of the show's best friends, Dustin Wood). So get your quiver loaded... Time for Action Features.

Action Features Podcast Episode 77:
The One Where The Preda-head Faces A Big Mac Attack
5/29/2015

In today's installment of everyone's favorite podcast, James & Mike give their thoughts on current happenings like the Point Break reboot, Funko's new Reaction figure lines, the Jaws re-release, pizza boxes that turn into movie projectors, and the continued degradation of Harley Quinn. They then follow it up by answering the age-old question "If you were a toy, what would your action feature be?".... and engaging in a heated discussion on an ultimate "What if?" character battle. It is quite a slobberknocker. So get your ears on, good buddy... Time for Action Features.

The One Where We Only Care About The Coming Attractions
5/1/2015

Hey all... It's an extra special 75th episode of Action Features! Well, it would have been extra special had the guys remembered it was the 75th episode. But they didn't. So instead of that, you get this episode focusing on the bevy of new trailers that have hit lately: Fantastic Four, Mad Max, Batman Vs Superman, and Star Wars The Force Awakens! Not only that, but you also get to hear their thoughts on politically correct superhero interviews, Star Wars figure drought, and.... Jared Leto's Joker look. Bet that gets pretty interesting... So what are you waiting for? Plug in- Time for Action Features.
