Twincast / Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

And Rom The Space Knight - Our first chat is about the most recent issue of Transformers #54, new series Transformers: ’TIl All Are One and of course, not to be left out a little something we like to call More Than Meets the Eye, issue #54. What is Galvatron’s final play…does he have a trump card or is it all on the table? Is Swindle still alive? Should Megatron die? We ask these questions and more, then to wrap up the comic discussion, we talk more REVOLUTION and decide if the TRANSFORMERS universe is getting a soft reboot, no reboot, or a very hard reboot. Our ongoing Beast Wars TV series rewatch continues with episode 18, "Spider's Game", and episode 19, "Call of the Wild". After that, we briefly reach into our creative bags and throw some paint schemes out there for the new PLATINUM EDITION UNICRON and KRANIX. SDCC is coming soon, and we share what version of TITAN MASTERS FORTRESS MAXIMUS we want the most to be our Fortress. You’d think this would be enough, but nope, we finally delve into a topic led by Counterpunch that breaches the world of packages ... Transformers toy packages that is. The best? The worst? What in packaging attracts you? What turns you off? What packages do you keep or do you just throw it all away? We end this jam session with some bragging about our BEST recent purchases that are toys at least 10 years old.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"

In Flanders Fields - We take a deep look into the world of Transformers comic book releases from IDW Publishing. This episode's focus is all on More Than Meets The Eye issue number 53, with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al going page by page through the book. This episode will completely "spoil" this issue, and many plot points in the greater IDW Transformers story arc, for readers that have not caught up to this point in the story. Speculation abounds along the way, with several stops to look at where the series has been and where it might be going. This is a special episode of the show in a slightly shorter time format, so tune in as the team analyzes and ponders the goings on with the crew of the Lost Light.

More Than Meets The Eye - Greetings Seibertronian beings, and welcome to another thrilling and enthralling visitation of the talent behind the IDW Publishing Transformers production, as we're till slim on the ground in terms of new comics this month! In the past, we have spoken to a lot of artists, some colourists, some inkers, some pencillers, but we have an all rounder coming up for this instalment - all the way from the Great White North. Making his mark a very long time ago in the current Transformers mythos, he's become a fan-favourite, he is responsible for many tears, many crowd shots, many pairings and ships for the fandom; he is the hands behind death, love, stars and returns. Ladies and gentlebots: Alex Milne!

Transformers: Deviations' Subtle Indictment

Transformers Deviation Reviewed - The Transformers: Deviations one-shot came out this week and I was extremely excited about this book. I love the 1986 The Transformers: The Movie with a passion, and any addition to its lore, imagery, and self-contained universe is something I jump at with fervor.
