PodCast Corner: Cracktastic Plastic

“Toy hunt by day; rock by night. The members of the punk rock band X-Ray Mary come together to talk about their other love, collecting toys. Focusing on G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe, and Transformers, these guys love that colorful plastic.”


As the legend goes, at some point in time the band mates of X-Ray Mary figured out they all still have a love of toys. Eventually the toys began to take over (as usual), and from then on when they were out on tour they would spend time looking for Toy Stores they could visit. While on the move from town to town for the next show the search for toy stores had even taken precedent even over finding the best place to eat, which was also super important.

Lore states that in one day while on tour they were able to visit four toy stores. Wow, Helluva Day! Now with tours on hold for a bit, they decided to aim the energy at the podcast world…

Cracktastic Plastic is a podcast where the band members talk about their addiction to the plastic and the newest additions to their collections…

Each band member holds a certain toy line special:

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!


Vocals/Rhythm Guitar
G.I. Joe


Horror Pops (and also Transformers)

The best segment of their podcast (IMO) is when in each episode they highlight a Toy Store they have visited, The Store Tour! For the premiere episode they revisit The Toy Pit in Indianapolis, Indiana. Other episodes they visit Corner Collectibles and A to Z Toys & Collectibles. does not currently have profiles for these two spots but we have reached out to them to see if they want in.

In their latest episode (at the time of this write up) they talk about Kokomo Toys and Collectibles in Kokomo, Indiana. Can’t wait to see what they cover in episode 5. 

It’s very exciting for us here at the Toy Store Guide to follow the Cracktastic Plastic podcast. It is cool to hear them talk about Toy Stores we have profiled and its even cooler when they can introduce us to stores we haven’t found yet. Like Palpatine said: “And you, young Skywalker; we shall watch your career with great interest.”
