Twincast / Podcast Episode #124: "Dogfight"

Dogfight - Several members of the Twincast filled out a recent Hasbro UK survey, and boy do we have thoughts about this. Plus, what's this about 3rd Party items? From there we move on to TCC Service 4.0 reveals. As of this writing, Bludgeon is the latest Club reveal, and Twincast reactions are mixed. Combiner Wars wave 4 and Optimus Maximus are here! Will these versions spur us to replace our Classics and Universe figures? We've got some interesting redecos coming out of the Transformers Adventures line, including legends class Override and Runabout, and the ever-stoic and much vaunted deluxe class Vehicon General. We've end up back to the Masterpiece line, and we still have some gripes about the upcoming MP-27 Ironhide. Also, what's with this red Bumblebee? We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights!

Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Vroom Vroom Vroom - We jump right in with some discussion on the new Robots in Disguise Deployers and Minicons and we also discuss the TRU exclusive Clash of the Transformers subline. Takara seems to be pulling out all the stops with their new TAV line, which coincides with Robots In Disguise. Case in point, TAV21 Optimus Prime. Next we dive into some comics. Our comic gurus take on IDW's Transformers issue #44. The Transformers Collectors Club's new Transformers / G.I. Joe crossovers are available: Marissa Faireborn with Afterbreaker and Old Snake with the Advanced Stealth B.A.T. duo. Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee has shipped and many of us have him in hand. Is this a Masterpiece figure that every G2 enthusiast or masterpiece collector needs? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out what we think of this little gold bug. We finish up this episode with a round of bragging rights.
