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.
