Freaky. We literally were just talking about that between each other last week and whether or not we'd want to do it again. I encourage anyone that would want to participate in such a thing to say so :)
Listen to me ramble about robots on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast.
Every once in a blue moon I write stuff about things on my blog.
I have a lot of Transformers, check them out on my shmax.com page.
Looking for Micromaster Spinner, rare Minicons and Star Saber's Rifle. PM me if you have these for sale!

Hall and Nash and Hogan and Bob are just one show now, but still entirely about Transformers. Mike talks to himself on the second show which is all about Asian Maid Cosplay, and the third features Rotorstorm, Jon3.0, and Seibertron talking about recipes. Matt and I start a podcast on cnn.com about world issues.

I'm derailing our thread. Oh well.

Here's another question for the Twincast. I'd be curious to hear Ryan's thoughts especially since he is a super G1 continuity fan.

Headmasters/Targetmasters: Which version do you like better? Smaller robots with Transtectors? or Nebulon/Human Partners with fully sentient robots?

After finally getting through 84/85/86.. Did you know that the genre allocated to the Twincast by Rhythmbox is The Real Folk Blues?

Do you think that's an appropriate description of your style? :P

Is there a really good redeco for Megatron toys? You can count on Optimus always looking good sporting a Nemesis Prime scheme. But who or what can Megatron get redecoed into? If you answer Galvatron, any others?

Hey guys! I've got a few questions for you:

First, with all the Toy Fair news, it seems like Hasbro is finally giving us a lot of figures in the Generations line that we've been wanting for for a long time. Considering the time it takes to develop these toys, where do you think all this is coming from? Is Hasbro finally listening to the fans? Is this a response to the rise in third party quality and popularity in recent years? Since many of the characters are part of the IDW-verse, is it just promotion and tie-ins with the comics? Or some combination or other reason entirely?

And yes, I'm aware there are many questions in that one question. That is my way.

Secondly, I know that there are many of us who have been fans and collectors for over a decade now. I know that as I've grown older, my collecting habits and interests have changed, so my question is this: how have all of yours changed since you started collecting? And as a followup question, do you have any bits of wisdom to share with the people who've just started?

Okay, twincast roundtable, what is a figure, or alternatively figures, that you have bought, or will buy as a guilty pleasure. Let me clarify, the phrase guilty pleasure is a bit of a misnomer, what I mean by it is a figure you like dispite its glaring flaws, or alternatively you like it, but can't quite justify owning it. Counterpunch , you can't say age of extinction's **** slap bumblebee.

I know you guys don't like to talk about this stuff but would love to know your thoughts on it. How do you guys feel about the Third party Wars going on?

4 "companies" doing Dinobots, 3 masterpiece style one FOC.
3 "companies" doing skyfire not counting Hasbro's jetfire.
multiple 6 guns
Multiple Huffers
Then theres the third party taking on Hasbro directly. (or the other way around)
gears, swerve, Jetfire, roadbuster, dinobots.

Third party bubble? Seems as strong as ever.
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

Why do you think in recent years, as Scotty so eloquently and I quote "The club is fanwanking the TFwiki guys" by picking characters to homage and redux that only a small percentage of the fandom actually know of, and smaller percentage actually care about.

That's a pretty good answer. I was specifically asking about trends, but a one off is fine as well. Here's to hoping we get a Kup from Orion Pax. Probably won't happen so close to Age of Extinction though.

Another question if you guys are interested, what is an underrated Transformers toy. It can be universally panned or whatever. Just one that you guys like more than others seem to

Dear Twincast,

Seibertron.com question...what's up with the Asian mail order bride ads on the site? I know it's not based on websites I'm visiting (or recent searches I've made like some of the ads here) because I see these come up on my work PC and I'm definitely not doing any funny business on that PC...not that I do funny business on other PCs, but umm, yeah, sup wit dat?

PS, my wife won't let me get an Asian mail order bride, or non-Asian one for that matter...

Lots of love,
