Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"

Postby xRotorstormx » Mon May 26, 2014 7:21 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, Counterpunch along with the regular cast ScottyP, Rotorstorm, and Tigertrack.

Episode 93 "Rear Ended" 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.


First off, we'd like to say congratulations to Counterpunch and his wife on the purchase of a new house!

Age of Extinction toys finally hit the shelves and were gobbled up by hungry fans. First up we discuss some of our in-hand thoughts on the new Constructbots Dino Riders.

Image

We even show some love to the new Power Attacker figures.

Image

Okay, now it's time to dive into some real toys!

The AOE Deluxe Class Wave 1 figures are now in stores. Crosshairs, Bumblebee, Scorn, and Slug are pretty cool figures but as you'll hear, a few of us haven't even been able to get our hands on them. (thanks Comic Con!)

Image

Scorn and Slug are the first Deluxe Class dinobots we've seen. You'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts on these guys.

Image
Hey since when could triceratops fly?


Up next we talk about the new Optimus Prime and Grimlock Voyager Class / Leader Class figures.

Image
(remember folks... pull the butt out! :D )

We take a break from toy talk to answer one of your listener questions!

Images of Deluxe Class Lockdown have surfaced and of course, we are full of opinions on this guy. Tune in to hear what we think.

Image

More images of Snarl and Slog have appeared online and it seems like everyone will be getting their hands on these guys.

Image
Who can say no to a Mad Max brontosaur?!


We also stumbled upon some images of Drift and his new alt mode. We chat about this interesting figure and a possible future use as another character...

Image

And then this happened. Oh Hasbro, what in the world is this? *sigh* no words...no words at all.

Image

Up next we'll discuss the new images of the new crazy colored MP-10 cross overs, EVA Masterpiece Prime and BAPE Masterpiece prime.

Image

Million Publishing teased us with an image of 10 "upcoming" figures only to find out, its a poll for what their next figure will be (BUMMER!). We discuss which figure we think would win through some tough elimination.

Image

The Kreo Character Encyclopedia as finally shipping and ScottyP was lucky enough to have it in hand to discuss his thoughts.

Image

We then dive into another one of your listener questions to answer something I think we've all asked ourselves...what's up with store distributions?

More movie trailers and TV spots are being released and we all agree that they are doing an excellent job building up the excitement for AOE.

We close out the night with 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.

The post gets written in a super secret lair several days before the episode hits the server for download. Counterpunch outfitted the lair with maids last week so there was more of a delay.

Well got finished with the Podcast, And counterpunch is right, you either love or hate Evangelion. Personally I hate it, (yes I watched all of it and the movies) However, credit where it's due, I'm a sucker for neon, and I genuinely adore EVA Masterpiece Prime's color scheme, to the point i'd buy it.

Never watched Evangelion, but I totally dig the color scheme and plan on buying that MP Prime. Bathing Ape, not so much.

I totally called that Drift as Rotorstorm too. Just needs a new head and maybe some sharpie for the cockpit. I'm sorely tempted by the Evangelion MP Prime too. I have no ties to that show and completely ignorant of it. Still, beautiful deco on a great toy.

I have finally found some time to listen to this, and I have to say: you made me snort more times than is suitable in an office. :D

It was a fun listen, and thanks for trying to answer my question, too.
(The second part was based on the panels in MTMTE 22 where Rodimus is wearing a bucket on his head to the 'People You Want to Punch' costume themed night on the Lost Light.)

Also, I know it's the wrong scale, but a taste of what you were talking about:

Hey Counterpunch,

You were saying on the podcast that you can't get Slug's tail to tab in to the tabs on his thighs.

Someone on one of the boards recommended this and it worked like a charm for me: You have to tab in the tail and leg portions *before* you tab in the sides (the parts made of the robot mode arms).

When I did that, I was able to get the tabs to stay in fairly well.

Hope that helps! Once I figured out everything on Slug, I started to really like him!

Good stuff. I'll give that a try. Thanks.
