No, we don't stream the content and even if you were to stream it, you're still downloading it. You may as well hit up the dl unless you're asking in regards to a mobile device, then my answer is a little different.

What's been your favorite episode of Transfromers: Prime?

How would I get someone who has only seen the Bay films into a heavy Transformers fan?

I randomly came across a website called, The Burning House this morning. The website asks a simple question, "If your house was burning, what would you take with you?" There are almost 200 posts from people all over the world sharing what practical, valuable and sentimental objects they will take with them if their home is burning.

I've often thought about this myself especially with all the wild fires that take place not too far from where I live. Sure there are the practicality and sentimental objects but what Transformer(s) would you take with you?

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.

Serious question time. No Erector jokes.

RE: Podcast 27 - Your discussion on toy storage.

I normally take good care of my loose toys when storing them in containers/bins whatnot, but I have encountered this problem several times, and it's one I always forget to consider: soft plastic.

Soft plastic on toys drives me nuts, because I always ruin it by packing my toys too tightly and without much regard for soft parts. The ears of my Animated Waspinator were nearly ripped off (full disclosure: I sold it not long after discovering the problem). The arm cannon on my Voyager ROTF Megatron is bent to hell. And those pointy knobs on U2.0 Cyclonus' head are now cracked, likely because I didn't transform him before handing the box off to some careless movers.

How do you guys store your toys that have soft plastic?

That's a tantalizing question.

I would let mine return to the earth, where they would spend several thousand years before bio-degrading completely. **** you, earthworms.

Who amung the twincast has tattoos?
More importantly who if any have transformers tattoo's?
And if so, What of?

I've designed many different TF tattoo's and they almost always turn out amazing. Even to people who have no idea what transformers are they are ussually impressed and like the pieces.

A favorite of mine was just the CON symbol made sharper with longer more deadly looking points.

Here's a really old concept I made a loooong time back.

The Beast Wars cartoon (Paleolithic era), the Hearts of Steel comic (Industrial Revolution), and some of the movie comics (various) showed us how a Transformers story could work in a time set prior to the modern present day. If you could have a new Transformers series or story be set in a previous time period, when and where would you want it to take place?

Some examples may include: The Middle Ages, Feudal Japan, the Old West, Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, the American Colonial era, the Great Depression, the Vietnam War, the Age of Exploration, The American Civil Rights Movement (Martin Luther King era), etc.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

Only you...

Welcome to page 12.

You guys should do something on all of the 3rd Party stuff. Comparisons to the cartoon, what looks good, what looks bad, what's worth it, what's insanely overpriced.

You should also do one with It Is Him that's all about Erector jokes.

I have a two-part question for the TwinCast Podcast:

What was the First transformer you bought with your own money you earned?
Do you remember what it cost?

(Item should be bought with money you worked for, not free money like an allowance or birthday cash)

Example:
I mowed the neighbors lawn in the summer of '90 or '91 to afford Erector. I think he cost me $14.00

Hi guys,

I'm currently listening to the podcast. I was wondering if we can get album art for the entire podcast or for each track.

I was using the featured artwork up until recently when the website's design changed. Now the image is way too small to see.

Perhaps using the same template used for each featured art could be changed into a standard podcast album art? I would also make square thumbnail for the post as well!

Why have the Japanese abandoned the innovations that the transformers franchise have brought to the giant robot genre. Innovations which are. Robots who are their own characters and do not need human pilots. The use of guns as a proper weapon in a giant robot fight. Since Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gaogaigar, and Gurren Lagann. Most Japanese giant robot anime post transformers have gone 30 years backwards with human pilots and swords ,hammers, fists and drills as weapons.
