On the subject of TF4, I really have grown tired of movie aesthetics for the last 6 years. If they do a TF4, they need to give it 2 to 3 years. I mean, Dark of the Moon has just sat on the shelves. The only thing moving is the Cyberverse line. Parents are tired of buying their kids Optimus's and Bumblebee,s, collectors are tired of Optimus and Bubmlebee.

If they do make a movie, they should for go a movie toy line. TF Prime is what they should focus on now. I'd hate to see TF Prime line get canceled or put on hold because Hasbro goes all in with another movie line that is just going to sit around(I can take a snapshot at my Walmart every time I go, and it won't change).

__________________________________________________________

I don't like Takara Bulkhead, he is too dark (also don't like the swirly metallic sheen in the plastic).

I kind of saw the Unicron twist coming when they introduced him. It is an awesome twist. Adds a new element to the human/transformers relationship.

__________________________________________________________

I think I agree with Counterpunch. Third party stuff is getting too numerous and it is hard to keep up with it. It's too expensive and you have to make you choice.

I think it would be interesting if Hasbro officially licensed a 3rd party maker as like the official collectors arm of the Transformers brand.

__________________________________________________________

I think the best hing in 2011 has to be Transformers Prime. I was not thrilled when Animated ended as it was the greatest thing since Beast Wars. Then the five parter came on last December for TF Prime and I wasn't impressed at all. I thought it was going to be another Armada or Cybertron with 3 annoying kids I want no part of, but then the actual season kicked in in February(?) and the kids roels were so miniscule (and I actually came to enjoy Miko and Jack's part in the show) and I've not missed Animated so much. Animated will is still my second favorite series, but TF Prime is already shaping up to be my third (and has proven TF's need to be made in the states).

Worst part of 2011, TRU exclusives. Why? Because my TRU closed and moved 30 minutes away :sad:

Love the show as always guys. I definitely want to try and catch the next call in show.

This is the only time that an honest-to-goodness official Transformers character guest stars in this podcast. Who is it, you ask? This character. :-B


Oh, man, I sound awful. :oops:


Something I failed to mention about my question was how the Transformers nowadays no longer just an American property but a global property. And the comics did outlive the cartoon by four years, so... yeah. But, the point I was trying to get at is that I don't think anyone should be deprived of viewing any Transformers media, be it the comics, the Japanese shows, the video games, the books, or anything. The fact that the English shows and movies are the most widely available kinda prevents anything else from being experienced as much. I think everyone should have a chance to view anything, not just the English movies/cartoons. There's a lot of good stuff out there that many haven't seen yet, since comics and Japanese shows can do/have done things that American cartoons can't do, and so they're missing out as a result, which is a shame. :-(


I leave my DOTM Skids and Mudflap in altmode. Only transformed each once, and they were awful. Only bought them so I could have something for Sentinel Prime to kill :twisted: (No way would I have him kill my Ironhide :evil: ).


Great episode guys. Hope to do this again.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Has Japan had anything that was purely Japanese since Beast Wars Neo?

I mean, RID-Cybertron WAS the west sharing what the east was making. It's just reverted back to the east getting what the west is making. From what I've understood they are pretty much just getting translations of our cartoons and movies.

To experience some of that back logged content, that is what the internet is for.

It took a while, but I finally got the chance on Friday to listen to it.
