Fans of Power Episode 27 - RAM MAN! And a "A Turd of the Universe?!" And Christmas news already?

That New Toy Smell
Tyler is back with Brian and Joe this week to discuss RAM MAN! Some people loved him and some hated him, and it seems everyone feels strongly one way or another about one of the many incarnations of him. Then, Joe brings up what many consider to be a terrible part of the Masters of the Universe history - The Little Golden Book "A Hero In Need." Does it have any redeemable qualities or is it a Turd of the Universe? And then finally... a Christmas Ornament?

Fans of Power Episode 26 - Anti-Eternia He-Man, Unused Mini-Comics, New Fans!

That New Toy Smell
After a technological snafu kept us off the air last week (*shakes fist at SKELETOR*), Brian and Joe are here to discuss the so-fast-if-you-blinked-you-missed-it sell out of Anti-Eternia He-Man, the unused mini-comic, new fans discovering He-Man for the first time (or for the first time since 1987), more eBay rants, why they aren't losing sleep over more possible movie announcements, why Prince Adam needs to be He-Man's secret identity, and so much more! A fun time as always!

Fans of Power Episode 25 - PRIZES! One-Shot Characters! Overhyped and Underused Characters! WOO!

That New Toy Smell
Joe and Tyler are Brian-less (he's meeting some Ace Frehley guy...) so the two decided to get controversial! There are several characters that only appeared once and are often treated as "worthless." Are they? Some actually are! Which leads us to "Overhyped and Underused Characters." Some characters get a lot of love, but once you look at what they really can accomplish, are just completely terrible characters. Some characters had the potential to be great, but Mattel (or Filmation, MYP, etc...) blew it. We know you'll want to throw some punches after this one! To make up for it, Joe has a trivia question for you and you can win Joe's SKELTOR MONEY! Make sure your answer correctly on the Fans of Power Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/Fans-Of-Power-Podcast-for-all-He-Man-and-She-Ra-fans-1536410346682759/

That New Toy Smell
Brian, Joe, and Tyler open with a look ahead to SDCC and what they want to see from Mattel this year. Then they pit Skeletor vs Hordak and discuss who is more evil and how they are both portrayed in the cartoons and comics. And to close out the show, they COMPLETELY IGNORE THE SCHEDULED PLAN and go off on a number of topics including the fails of the DC Comic series, how characters have gotten short changed by fans, and about a MILLION other things this recap writer couldn't keep up with!

Fans of Power Episode 22 - Kobra Kahn, Camo Khan?!, Fisto vs Jistu, and Tyler is already banished?!

That New Toy Smell
Brian, Joe, and Tyler are all back this week. First up on the agenda is the under-rated KOBRA KHAN figure. And while we're at it.. what's up with CAMO KHAN? After the break, they pit FISTO vs JITSU in a Pier Six Brawl! Who comes out on top? And does Tyler actually get banned in this episode? If so, that's probably the quickest a co-host has been banned on the Pop Culture Network!
