It's probably also worth mentioning that My Little Pony was launched alongside Transformers by Hasbro in 1984, TFs for boys and MLP for girls. The two franchises may be considered siblings in that respect.

As concerns the idea of a TF-MLP crossover

When I was a kid, I had only Transformers action figures, and a little sister less than two years younger than myself. That said, my Transformers often voyaged to strange other worlds inhabited by sentient colorful horses (My Little Ponies) or armies of intelligent felines (Kitty Surprise).

That said, if done carefully, a TF-MLP crossover could actually be a decent short, self-contained story. Say, a group of female Autobots, while chasing a rogue Decepticon across the galaxy, finds themselves on the MLP world and assumes animal-based alt-modes (a la Beast Wars), and through cooperation with the MLPs they bring the rogue Decepticon to justice before he can decimate the natural organic beauty of the MLP world. Obviously, this would be a short 1-2 episode story, and would probably fit best as a mid-season finale on the MLP tv show, and NOT as its own series or an episode TF:Prime.

While I myself have no interest in MLP, I'd watch that crossover for the sheer hilarity factor, and for the fun of seeing the two franchises finally cross paths after 28 years.


Now, on to my own Ask the Twincast question,

In your most recent episode (#53), Jon draws a distinction between "collectors like us" and "just the average fan that gets it on a walmart shelf". Personally, 90-95% of my 1500+ Transformers were purchased from a Walmart/Target/etc shelf, but I would certainly not consider myself "just the average fan".

That said, my question for the Twincast is this: What criteria do you believe separate "collectors like us" from "just the average fan"?

If I may...I think 'an average fan' would be someone that knows of TFs and might pick up a fig or few if they happen past them and find it/them cool. But if you frequent TF sites, have TF news coming to you in some fashion, or are somehow staying on top of what's coming out and when, then I'd say you're 'a collector like us'.



PS, I hope my last question didn't get buried... ;)

Do you ever worry that the point will come where your collection will only be worth it's plastic value?

do you ever find yourselves 'sideswiped' when new news comes out between the recording of the podcast and it's posting?

I was wondering what was up. We're two episodes behind.

Really, you guys should consider doing it weekly. I love the show and hate waiting two weeks. So this past month has been even longer than normal!

Seriously, best of luck. I have no idea how hard it is to put together a podcast, but if my experience of trying to get six people in the same locality together at the one time is of any indication, all over the place must be hard. You must do a listener call in episode again sometime.

Patience? Dude, this is the internet. I sometimes wonder out loud where a God damn package is already. Then I realize it only shipped a day ago. My perception of time is way effed. Glad to hear a new ep is coming. I'm really curious to hear what you guys think of the Generations Omega Supreme. Tiny head and wrong arm remold in all. ;P

just after getting the G2 Bruticus, so unless I'm missing something, and it's already decided, what 'powers' would you give the combaticons?


so until John decides to make a version of 'Convoy' as 'Convoy', (which I would so buy ) , the best to the twincast.

with rage of the dinobots coming out what do you think the future of the cybertron series games will be. I liked the first one and the second is ok as well but honestly their not linked to prime that much -it was more of a retroactive move as there are plenty of continuity errors between the two let alone the more G1 style the games have but their bond and determined to do this so what do you see as the next step in this game series if ANY? or do you think its going to be it with the 2 and they will do something else?

What aort of continuity errors, exactly? ;)

Also, there's more to to the story than the games and cartoon. The novels are probably the biggest pieces of meat at play here. :-B
