Twincast / Podcast Episode #164 "Getaway Was Right"

Getaway Was Right - The Twincast podcast returns as the gang is reunited for some toy talk, focusing on Titans Returns Krok and Quake, recent Takara Tomy Legends releases Super Ginrai, Soundwave, Ravage, Laserbeak, and the Headmasters anime styled Brainstorm. The show then fields some listener questions about collecting habits, toy line preferences, and even what would happen if Transformers were involved in Neon Genesis Evangelion. This is followed by speculation on Movie Masterpiece Last Knight MPM-3 Bumblebee, and discusses Combiner Force Crash Combiners. As a round table topic, they analyze the potential lost opportunity of IDW comics original characters, especially those from More Than Meets The Eye and Lost Light, as toys and venture on the effects of third party toys that have picked up that style. Taking a swing into comics, the group offers their opinions on IDW's Revolutionaries #1. This segues into the episode's featured topic, which is a debate on whether Getaway was right to stage a mutiny aboard the Lost Light.

More info and large images of Shadow Spark Optimus Prime and MPM-3 Bumblebee Revealed

Last Knight Toys - Hasbro just sent us a message confirming what we saw this morning and giving us more detail. As it turns out, that is indeed a new Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee, numbered at MPM-3. It is done to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first film. More linked to the new film, The Last Knight, is the Leader Optimus Redeco with new weapons. Both seem to be Asian editions so it is currently unkown if they will be sold in the west at big box retail.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #163 "Through The Space Hole"

Through The Space Hole - The Twincast Podcast returns for 2017 with a show primarily featuring discussion of the latest Tranformers comic books from IDW Publishing.

New ongoing series Optimus Prime comes next, with the first two issues already available for readers. The relaunched More Than Meets The Eye is here under its new title of Lost Light, and the highly anticipated first issue is looked back on with the characteristic speculation about the series rounding out the chat. The recently revealed Titans Returns Deluxe Kup, Topspin, Quake, and Krok take the show into toy discussion. Along with that, the recently released MP-10K BAPE Black Camo Convoy also comes up. The show closes out with holiday bragging rights.

2016 Year in Review - A Beastly Task

2016 Year In Review - One more day is left, and this year will be over. If you look at 2016, there have been too high a number of dark moments outside of the life on the boards. But when you look at what our hobby, our fandom, our world of robots have produced, we actually struck some very good chords this year, wouldn't you agree? It has been a year of anniversaries, a year of milestones, a year of beasts and movies and comics, a year of toys, a year of endings and beginnings -- I suppose it's only right that we take some time now to make it ... A Year in Review - Transformers 2016!
