Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"

The Gathering - We start out with more listener questions, beginning with a brief discussion over sticker placement on Takara's Arms Micron series Rumble and Frenzy toys. After that we answer a question related to availability at our local stores. We wrap up listener questions with a look at different types of Transformers fiction, in a pseudo continuation of our discussions from the previous episode of the show. Some current events talk is next, with a look at IDW Publishing's Sins of the Wreckers issue 3, followed by a brief chat regarding recently leaked images of more of the upcoming Titans Return line. Combiner Wars continue on after this, as the cast picks a favorite between popular Transformers combiner characters Superion and Bruticus. The particular winner of this mock battle may surprise listeners. The cast then begins a discussion of their new viewing of the Beast Wars cartoon television series for the twentieth anniversary of the show. Episode 1 of Beast Wars is discussed on this episode. Finally, the show ends with each podcaster choosing a particular favorite discussion thread from our forums that they've seen recently.

New Galleries: Takara Beast Wars D-4 Tarantulas and D-8 Blackarachnia

Takara Beasties - Here is something special regarding variants in the Beast Era. For Takara's version of Tarantulus and Blackarachnia, there were variants that are noticeably different from the Hasbro versions. The key to knowing if the boxed toy is the variant or not is the green sticker on the front of the package. If it has the white and red sticker, it's the same as the Hasbro version. The green sticker versions are intended to be the more screen accurate versions, though that will be for you to judge when you will see the galleries.
