Episode 89 "Degeneration One" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
The "original" run of Transformers comics comes to its end as Regeneration One #100 hit newsstands and comic shops last week. Listen in as yours truly completely fails to succinctly summarize this seized up slop of a story, as we lament missed opportunity and tell you how much we really, really didn't like this arc.
If this image confuses you, don't worry, it means you're still sane.
Our comics news isn't all doom, gloom, and sadness. Previews are out of the upcoming Windblade Mini-Series and we speculate on the art and story of the book. Plus, our staff on the other side of the ocean has been busy working hard, so be sure to check out Va'als interview with Windblade artist Sarah Stone while you listen for more insight into the creation of this upcoming book!
After the comic talk, we transition into toys by speculating if the presence of Galvatron in June's solicits portends a new toy in the works. Do you want one? Of course you do. So do we.
Some damn fine arrows there
Statues come next in the discussion. Wait, what? Yeah, we take a bit to talk about the super high-end Action MasterMovie Prime and Ultimetal Megatron. Guess who wants to buy these on the show? Basically no one, but the team is accepting review copies for science.
He'll take your wallet's face
More information is available on Masterpiece 21 Bumblebee during this episode, so reaction and speculation ahoy! We even get a chance to break some news on him during the show, of course, you know it by now - he includes Spike to make this the "OH SH--!" Masterpiece set you've always wanted.
Extra note - the MP Ultra Magnus silhouette appeared right after we recorded, so tune in to Episode 91 for discussion on the MP UM resin sample that will probably be revealed right after we record Episode 90.
Your Moon Base 2 crew, ready to blow up the base if there's trouble
We then turn to our old friend with benefits who we just can't ever get serious with, Botcon, and check out their latest reveal, Ferak. We also discuss the goings on with this year's convention, craziness with Joecon and potential ripple effects with Botcon, competition on the convention circuit, and lament the total lack of buzz in the community for this upcoming show.
Your listener questions come next, where we actually say some stuff about third parties.
Me? I am amped up for this guy
We then wrap up with some Bragging Rights, in which Ryan overspends on new releases, Mike forgets he bought something, and Scotty gets one step closer to never completing his Micron collection.
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!
