"In my mind I'm going to Carolina..."
which is unfortunately exactly how I experienced Charticon, but Podcasters Mike, Scotty, and Jon, as well as Bob were there for a first hand experience of the small convention scene, which turned out to be not quite so small, and they describe it to me, Matt, and for you, the listening audience to enjoy. This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
This episode of the Twincast has a couple of different pieces. The previously mentioned introduction by Counterpunch, Scotty P, Jon 3.0, and Tigertrack as we discuss small conventions, and Charticon specifically and some appropriate new news items like Generations Hoist and Thundercracker
(and the other recently released Generations toys as well--check out the galleries!), the new Bot Shots reveals (cool new Soundwave!), and always relevant and reliable for a great discussion, the TRANSFORMERS COLLECTOR's CLUB and their sharing of the first full figure digital mock up of FSS 2.0 TREADSHOT and a secret scout-sized 7th character toy!
Also in this short first segment, these 4 guys (missing a guy and fries) also discuss KRE-O, retail release of Platinum Edition toys, and even touch on the comics a little as we discuss the recent 'Dark Cybertron' covers and what has interested us lately in comics.
Then, Part 2 of the podcast is a live recording from Charticon in North Carolina with podcasters Mike, Bob, and Scotty, and some other friends who joined them in discussions and fun.Don't forget! The podcast is running a photo contest.
We currently have two entries for this contest, so the rest of you need to pick up the slack, and show us your creativity, or you are just conceding that the two entries we have are THE MOST CREATIVE POSSIBLE...
See you around next time faithful listener, and thank you for listening to the podcast. By the way, check out the image of Seibertron board member JRGReer74 and his awesome prize from CHARTICON!
Congrats JRGreer74, many jealous board members salute you!
