Welcome back,

Did I miss the e-mail about the dues?

So looking forward to Fortress Max, one I never knew was anything but a comic character as a child. the Christmas fort max is the one from Hot Shot's flashback in Armada? or am I after spoiling it?

So does anyone else feel that the comi-cons are getting the news that should be botcon's ( because of the bigger media exposure), but with the prices I know that I will get picky with my purchases in the future, or wait until clearance.

Have a good day

Good to have Counterpunch back on! I was saddened by the lack of brutal honesty and Dethklok references. Don't be fooled by my post counter, been a lurker for yearsss and the podcast is an integral part of my work commute, lol.

Well I guess its pretty bad your on episode 55 and its the first time I ever listened to one but Iv'e listened to other podcasts and well to sum it up snorefest. I have to say I enjoyed it, very nicely done. Like you guys were talking about I've been slinging cash left and right these past few months and hope there is some kinda slight cool down to keep my card from melting.

Oh, and its nice to finally know how to pronounce Seibertron.

You guys made my morning of hanging new display shelves complete. It was nice to hear I'm not the only one that has been pairing down his pre-orders. I pulled off the G2 Bruticus and the 3pk Prime Voyager knowing that Ultra Magnus was the only major one on my check list as a must have. From now on it's just the 3rd party and masterpiece releases that get to join the party.

I'm glad I grabbed my Masterpiece Thundercracker when he was at $69. In NY he is now at $89.
And to answer the Omega question, I believe the panel said that he would be a BBTS and Amazon release.

oh yeah, and had a thought when you were commenting on the size of Prime Unicron (mine is on the way). Yes, he is smaller than I too would like, but we could look at it as it was the 1st one to emerge out of the rocks. The Gaia element means it could be any one of those clones and in varying sizes.

Motto: "FOR THE EARTH!!!"
Weapon: Saber Blade
It was the week of September 12 that we first heard about Beast Hunters and its connection to Prime. :D


We've had subline imprints in the years after Cybertron. The Movie 1 toyline had both "AllSpark Power" and "Premium Series". Animated skipped on the ordeal, but ROTF had "N.E.S.T. Global Alliance". DOTM was going to have "Movie Trilogy" until that went under (minus the sole Optimus toy), and the 2010 subtitle-less "Transformers" toyline got reworked into "Reveal the Shield". The Prime toyline itself has already gone through two phases, "First Edition" and "Robots in Disguise", and will also have the "Dark Energon" subline via BBTS before it goes into "Beast Hunters".


"The show to reset itself back to default by the end of 23 minutes every week, just like the current season. :P " - While I agree with you about that for the earlier parts of the show, ever since Smokescreen arrived, the show has taken a dramatic turn for the better, with the episodic formula being dropped and being switched into a continuous ongoing storyline, as said at the NYCC panel. Also, the Steven Melching interview had him say that he's heard the status quo complaints like these and that, as a result, season 3 will have no status quo.


The zombies (Terrorcons) must have gotten caught in the explosion of the space bridge like Megatron did.


Voyager Predaking was on the Powerpoint presentation, "Leader" Predaking was on display at the Hasbro booth the night before.


But G2 Go-Bots Optimus Prime and Machine Wars Optimus Prime had exposed mouths before the Energon Optimus toy came out.


Another great one, guys. Cool interview at the end too.

camzilla51 wrote:Did anyone ask the Hasbro panels for a status update on the Prime Breakdown, Jet Vehicon, and Ironhide domestic releases? I remember before they said they had no specific plans as of yet.

I honestly think if we keep pestering them about it they might give in. Don't let up. Ask them at every single convention they attend. :-?
They asked about Breakdown and there are still no plans for it yet. They said they'd really like to give us toys of all the in show characters, but that we need patience.

And it was confirmed that Rumble and Kup would be the final TF: Prime Deluxes released before the switch over to Beast Hunters.

Yeah, it's like "Say-ber-tron".

Thanks for all the nice compliments. We felt a bit out of practice, but I don't think the wheels fell offor anything.

We're glad to have Mike back as host too. We missed his overwhelming optimism.

CP and I may do a longer discussion about pairing down and spending less ... Really knowing what you want to collect.

Thanks again all.

Welcome back Counter Punch! I have to pay my dues at the next Botcon. I thought the Energon Omega Supreme was just going to be the same toy reissued and did not think Fort Max would be the next Encore. Great episode guys! I had fun listening.

I have Photron in my pile of loot. I am sad to hear it was a disappointment. Gaia Unicron is the first Arms Micron toy I own. I really love it. It is a fun toy. The head mode is awful but the robot mode is a lot of fun. I kind of want to get the other sets to complete his hand. It is made of two other sets right? One of the microns is from Ironhide right? Which is the other from?

And Bob, I have a new avatar for you! Hahaha ;)

That is awesome that Ryan was able to interview Jordan from Toy Hunter although I do not like his rubber ball response. I am right there with you Ryan with Soundwave being my all time favorite Transformer. :CON:

When eating planets alone isn't enough to satisfy the Chaos Bringer's hunger, Unicron comes to Earth to fill up on McDonald's. McDonald's golden arches will light our darkest hour (when the Chaos Bringer would not share) by clogging his arteries, raising his blood pressure, and giving him diabetes.

You know, it just occurred to me (being like 3AM where I am) that these days, I've just been listening to the Twincasts without bothering to leave my thoughts behind in text for the people who make the show a reality to read #-o ... For this I apologize :grin:

Another great episode, guys... it's great to have CP back at the helm, he was missed, I figured when I saw him pop up on Skype last week that his return to the show was happening and I'm glad to see I was right. Don't get me wrong, the show did go on, and reasonably well, while Ryan was hosting, but it lacked a certain... Counterpunchery... that really adds to the overall attitude of the show. Mike seems to just loosen everyone up a little more, and it really works well with the overall dynamic... just my thoughts mind you...

The discussions were very engaging, I've said it before, but it bears repeating... For someone like me (who lives about six hours from any groups of people that would understand any of what you guys say) it's nice to be able to hear this kinda talk from people who understand it, people who know what's up, and have their own (often varied) opinions about it, and can make jokes, and obscure references (CHRISTMAS MAXIMUS!) that I understand and am amused by. For a lone collector (and being in financial dire straits as I am, I use the term "collector" loosely) in a very small town on the northern tip of an isolated landmass, this show is something very special, and I want you guys to know that I appreciate the time you all put into it, and want you all to keep up the great work.

Yeah, surely this looks cool, and I'm likely to buy the toy because I'm a beastformer freak, but I highly doubt that the episodes featuring Predaking will be worth the hype. Prime has done a wonderful job of fan-wanking, but little in the way of being original, doing the source material justice or, y'know, telling a good story.
