Twincast / Podcast Episode #94 "Monsters of Rock"

Postby xRotorstormx » Wed Jun 11, 2014 7:36 am

Motto: ""Get into your enemy's mind. And then beat him at his own evil game.""
Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host for the evening, Geffen Records (Counterpunch) along with Axl Rose (Jon 3.0), Duff McKagan (Razorclaw0000), Dizzy Reed (Rotorstorm), Izzy Stradlin (Scotty P), Slash (Seibertron), and Steven Adler (Tigertrack)!

Episode 94 "Monsters of Rock" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

One of this years SDCC exclusives has been revealed and boy does it ROCK! Hear what the cast thinks of this set and who actually wants to own one.

(0:22)
We have finally gotten the TFCC membership exclusive Rampage figure in hand we were certainly impressed, but there was one thing we weren't thrilled about...

Image

(0:39)
And some of us even broke down and bought Rampage's partner in crime, Trans-mutate. You'll have to tune in to hear what we think of her.

Image

(0:46)
The TFCC is certainly on a roll so far! The first subscription service figure, Barricade and Frenzy, is finally in hand for the cast so you'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts!

Image

(0:54)
With just 9 days to go (THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS!), the cast breaks down some Botcon 2014 rumors and what we hope to see next week.

Image

(0:56)
The second release of Masterpiece Grimlock has been spotted at retail recently. While some of us were lucky enough to get our paws on the first run, there are some differences that may have us reaching into our wallets again for this beauty.

Image
(Must go faster, must go faster!)

(1:01)
New images of Masterpiece Sunstorm hit..and well...he sure is, um, bright and sunny?

Image

(1:07)
Up next the cast discusses the continuing AOE onslaught of new figures! Included in this bombardment is Deluxe Strafe. Listen in to hear our thoughts on the new Strafe Evolution 2-pack with tini-tiny swoop!

Image

(1:21)
Another new figure released is the Optimus Prime Evolution 2 pack which ends up intriguing the entire cast.

Image

(1:30)
Oh hey...look, more TV spots for AOE! Hmmm I wonder who that guy is?

Image

(1:39)
Even though a lot of us are disappointed that there will be no Hall of Fame dinner event this year, there has been voting going on for the new inductees for the Hall of Fame. Tune in to hear what goes in to the voting process and who we think should be added.

Image

(1:45)
We close out the night with some confessions, errr I mean some bragging rights!

Image


Thanks everyone for listening and we appreciate the continued support! 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!

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 by simply replying to this post!

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.

Woooo! Podcast! :D



But I suppose we could have some of this, too.




I am still very very stoked to get my Rampage, on its way from across the pond thanks to El Duque.

And it's great fun to hear all of you having clearly a great time, and fun, and bouncing off each other following the agenda, more or less (who cares about the agenda anyway, that's the host's problem :P ). I'd love to try out BotCon one year, and I almost did this time round. Next year seems more promising!


Sad to hear Strafe is not as good as it's been looking so far, I've been put off Slash as it is, and now this. :-(


Is the next episode the BotCon bash bonanza?

Provided there aren't weird technical problems we can't overcome (always a possibility when recording god knows where), then yes. :grin:

This post is another opportunity for me to warn folks that aren't into hearing us drunkenly ramble at Botcon to steer clear of 95. It will likely be very raw with lots of cursing and substance abuse. Which, come to think of it, is a great follow up to a rock band themed episode :lol:

I believe that the Transformers Collector's Club took some used Arcee toys and repainted them to Transmutate without caring about any of the other important things on the toy. I'm glad I didn't subscribe because you all make it sound like the toy is hurting your lives. :lol:

I strongly disagree with Seibertron's opinion on non-attendee sets. Those who couldn't attend the convention would just go to the secondary market, buying from eBay scalpers after the show.

FunPub already makes the Primus packages available first, and I missed out on a loose bagged set, of which only a tiny minority were available for non-attendees.

And the at-show exclusives have certainly made me wish I'd attended BotCon to avoid eBay markups before, like SG Optimus from BotCon 2012 or Starscream from BotCon 2014.

I think the next episode should have multiple farts in the mic... Or how about someone taking a piss mid-show capturing all the toilet twinkles and finishing with an epic flush?

I have a wireless headset so there's been a few episodes of WOJM that I've been talking and gone to the bathroom.

Ok, what is everyone referring to here? I legit don't know.

Is there background static noise due to the recording quality? Is it a noise someone is making on purpose? Did Jon edit in something I am unaware of?

Sometimes you can hear background noise like people talking (not on the show) or a TV. In this particular episode someone kept belching into the mic which, as the episode went on, became a little distracting.

Also it sounded like someone was playing with the Universe Onslaught mould, because I kept hearing the Siren and gun sounds from the electronics.

Hrm, ok...we will fix it next recording.

tbh, I did not hear any of that while recording.

Maybe someone was pushing mute thinking when making those noises and it worked for the call, but somehow made it onto the recording?

I don't even know if that's possible, but I'll correct it for next time.

That would actually make the belching in the episode pretty funny...and keeps the mid-show piss in a future episode a possibility.
