The podcast is refusing to download for me. :-(

I've tried both the direct link and RSS feed link (I don't have iTunes), and neither wants to download.

Download worked for me...made me SQUEEE!, too. Although I downloaded direct from the site.

I wish they'd choose a friggin' way to place the faction symbols on the MP seekers wings (all seekers for that matter) and stick with it. While my pref would be for them to be more toon accurate and do them upside down in bot mode, it mostly just drives me nuts that they do them one way for one and the other for the next. Call me anal...

Okay, I tried one more time and it did finally manage to download, but it took a really super long time, with the estimated time given as "Not Known" throughout the whole duration.

Cool podacst!

You guys will be using the FOC voyagers in your classics collection?
What guys think about the chance that the DOTM figures that havent made to this side,might get released?
What guys think of Prime Ultra Magnus after SDCC?


This new amazon Optimus being more accurate?I will have to watch the movie again.



Good work to everyone,icluding Ryan.The speed of the news and photos from SDCC was pretty amazing. ;)^

Another well done episode guys.

Tigertracks, I do feel ripped off with the Hasbro reveals at Botcon compared to SDCC.

Razorclaw0000, your not going to get the Optimus Maximus? Come on! It's awesome! :) It reminds me of the GoBots powersuits and I am going to put a legends Optimus Prime toy in each limb. I think I have enough legends Optimus Primes to do that. I hope anyway. ;) BTW I think Wheelie looks great too!

Counterpunch, I love your reply to TulioDude's question "If could give the power to talk to one of your figures,wich one would it be?"
That YouTube clip I tweeted you from Grandma's boy ran through my mind and I had an laugh out loud moment.

(Had to pull the link on that one. -Staff)

Grimlock is garbage. Swoop is legit, not perfect, but passable.

Full range of movement, blue chest, headcrest, better than decent alt mode.

Only real problem is his arm connections in bot mode.

Though I win either way. Either we get a new and improved Swoop, or I get to watch you punch people. I'm hyped.

I am thinking that select FOC toys will be on my IDW shelf. So far Jazz ws shown in the most recent issue of RID strumming a bass (instrument not fish), and I think the Blaster is close, but not exact to a passable Blaster from his Spotlight. I mean it's not like HASBRO makes many Blasters, so I want a reason to keep this on my shelf too.

Soundwave. Probably not. Device Label has still worked the best for me for my CLASSICS shelf.

Soundblaster will go on my 'black variants and black exclusives' shelf.

In TF toys, there isn't much more I hate than figures that won't lock into whatever mode they're meant to be in. His arms make me want to smash things. Here's where I'm coming from with Swoop too. He's one my absolute favorite TF characters. He's really only ever had one decent figure IMO and that's the G1 version. Even that is pretty arguable. In fact, I'd venture to say it's NOT good. I'm gonna have to agree to disagree with you here. Those figures were never part of my Classics collection and never will be. They simply aren't worthy no matter how hard you try to justify it. ;) Also, it may only be myself I end up punching for still having faith in Hasbro to do right by the fans with more Dinobots. I'm well aware that we are likely to only get Grimlock.

I wish I would have called MIke on that on the podcast. I am not a fan of Energon Swoop either, other than it being another set of dinobots, and they do something unique in somewhat combining together... sort of.

Mine E-Swoop is not in my classics set either. He's with my dino collection. And I hate what his arms do too. Always frustrates me.

So I just now got to the podcast, yay a link worked :3, anyhow fun podcast with the three of you.So when you mentioned that the FE prime figures returning, would include bumblebee I'll admit I was slightly disappointed seeing as FE bumblebee is pretty cheap and is still on HTS.com, but oh well at least FE Vehicon is being re-released.

His G1 alt mode is arguably the BEST alt mode of all the G1 Dinobots. It's toon accurate and the alt mode head is spectacular.
Snarl takes a close second, IMO.

I would never say or even "venture" to say that the G1 Swoop is NOT good. It's excellent to me.

FE Bumblebee is not coming. They messed up when they said that he's coming and Arcee isn't.

The Hasbro TF Brand panel revealed that Starscream, Vehicon, Arcee and Terrorcon Cliffjumper are coming, but not Bumblebee (or regular Cliffjumper).
