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.

The One Where Rodimus Sings - We start off with comic-talk, specifically Transformers #43 and the more divisive MTMTE #43 with Holo-matter avatars abound! Listen in for some strong opinions. Only a select few of the Twincast crew are caught up on the RID Cartoon as we ask one question: WHY? Listen in as we compare RID to its predecessors, discuss its strengths and weaknesses. Next up is Transformers Subscription Service Impactor which the Twincast agrees is COOL! Time for some Masterpiece talk featuring MP-11T Thundercracker and MP27 Ironhide!
