Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"

May Mayhem - We start the show with a continuation of our Beast Wars Season 1 rewatch. The Beast Wars fun continues after that as the cast members "draft" characters for a fantasy team of robots in three fun rounds. A critical look at the most recent comics releases follows, with both The Transformers #53 and More Than Meets The Eye #53 in the crosshairs. A special topic about the place of music in the Transformers universe, inspired by the recent Sony Music release of the Roll Out album, continues the show, and this features both a review of the album as well as thoughts on how the cast imagines a Transformers soundtrack should be. May Mayhem kicks into high gear after this, with thoughts and even repair tutorials for the Fan Built Combiner Wars Victorion set. This is followed by the anti-climactic small release of Deluxe Groove and the impact that had this week, and we then wrap up toy discussions by moving into our thoughts about the recently revealed Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Loud Pedal from Takara Tomy. Robots in Disguise's 2nd season finale is discussed as well, along with some thoughts about how the show has progressed since the start. We wrap up with a quick bragging rights segment featuring some unique curio additions to our collections.

Top 10 Best Beast Wars Episodes

Beast Wars - This list was seriously a labor of love. It seems the Transformers were introduced to me at the perfect stages of my life. G1 was a toy commercial, great for the first 5 years of my kiddie life. But Beast Wars with it's more developed stories and themes came out in 1996, and I was just old enough to really appreciate it. But enough of this, there's a lot of words coming at you so let's get started! Interviews IDW Artist Alex Milne Interviews IDW Artist Alex Milne

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!
