Twincast / Podcast Episode #88 "Marky Mark and the Transformers Bunch"

Postby ScottyP » Mon Mar 10, 2014 9:43 am

Weapon: Battle Blades
Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host and idol of millions, Counterpunch, along with regular cast Rotorstorm, Scotty P, Seibertron, and even a little bit of Jon 3.0 sandwiched in the middle.

Episode 88 "Age of Interviews" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.

The full blown flag wavin', dino slashin', Wahlberg actin' Age of Extinction trailer has hit the airwaves. While we break it down for America, follow along with the excellent gallery of still images right here on Seibertron.com

Image



The Comics department didn't get all of the Livio Ramondelli fun - he stopped by the Twincast as well! We ask the questions everyone always wanted to ask, and have a ton of fun along the way. After you listen, be sure to check out Livio's Website and Deviantart Page for all the latest. Plus, post any questions you might have for Livio right here in this topic, and be sure to check out Va'als written interview with Livio as well.

Image


Just in time to not be relevant, we discuss the Masterpiece Bumblebee silhouette and ponder what the final product might look like. We accidentally guessed a few features correctly, it's pretty rad.

Image


There are new Masterpieces in hand as well. We give our thoughts on G2 Lambor/Sideswipe and some leftover insight on Year of the Horse Optimus Prime.

Image


Straight from the butt butt, Brawn and Starscream have arrived to confuse our shelves once again. Will the Twincast be flying high with these releases, or having them grounded?

Image


Grimlocks everywhere! Hope you're ready for a whole bunch of Dinobots this summer, as we get to see one of the first exclusive releases for the Age of Extinction toyline in the Grimlock Evolution 2-Pack.

Image


Your listener questions come next, tune in to see if yours got read and answered!

Image


We then wrap up with some Bragging Rights. Obscure repaints and non-Transformers, what madness!

Image


Thanks everyone for listening and we appreciate the continued support!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

After watching the trailer I can't stop making impressions of Mark Wahlberg saying 'Yo, I think we found a Transformer'. I highly doubt he said that exactly, but it's devolved in my mind. Also that trailer explains Evasion Mode Optimus. Can't wait to watch!

Well you know Counterpunch, i'm always game to see pictures the non transformers guilty pleasures. Also, I applaud your quick rant on the Bruticus add-ons, because I was a dumb ass and bought the G2 version as well, and I want something to make my G2 kitsch less terrible.

Robots in Disguise #21-22 are some of the best Transformers books out there, and show that More Than Meets the Eye is not the only title that really really really delivers. What Livio and Andrew did on those two issues is absolutely stunning. :D

That was a fun chat to listen to, and thanks for plugging the written interview too.

As for TransForMarket - we did cover it here: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... lli/29285/

Marky Mark asked me to tell you to say hi to your mother for him.

Man, after listening to the Livio Ramdelli interview, I can't help but love the guy. He just sounds like such a fan of the brand, and it's nice to hear how familiar he is with everything TF.

He was very gracious with his time and a lot of fun to talk with.

Colors aside...all that I picture in my head when I look at Brawn is Violet from Willy Wonka when she starts to turn into the blueberry :lol:

About the cloud starscream... didn't starscream utilize the G2 dreadwing mold giving him both the jet and tank mode in Beast Wars, or even the canceled Starscream/Megatron recolor or Dreadwing/Darkwind from G2?

Well, he was part of the pairing. BB and Megatron were the larger jet, while Starscream was the smaller one.

So, kind of. I mean...he was there.

I think it's a dumb figure, but there's something funny about a cowardly tank.

The Cloud/Butt thing cashes in on the rising prevalence in online storage services and remote server processing in video games, often referred to as cloud servers.

Playstation offers online backup of game files when you subscribe to PS+. SimCity infamously/controversially processes some environmental effects and neighboring city interactions online (thus requiring always on internet connection).
Beast Hunters is coming. Well played Mayans.

Anyone else having issues getting the episode to either show up or download for iTunes? I've got all the previous episodes but this one won't show up to download.
:BOT:

::EDIT::
Had to jump through some hoops but got it to work by following the link here. It wouldn't come up in the iTunes program itself though before that. It was there, I accidentally deleted it somehow, then it was gone. It wasn't listed to download and I don't have any idea what the issue was preventing me from doing so.
