Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"

The Gathering - We start out with more listener questions, beginning with a brief discussion over sticker placement on Takara's Arms Micron series Rumble and Frenzy toys. After that we answer a question related to availability at our local stores. We wrap up listener questions with a look at different types of Transformers fiction, in a pseudo continuation of our discussions from the previous episode of the show. Some current events talk is next, with a look at IDW Publishing's Sins of the Wreckers issue 3, followed by a brief chat regarding recently leaked images of more of the upcoming Titans Return line. Combiner Wars continue on after this, as the cast picks a favorite between popular Transformers combiner characters Superion and Bruticus. The particular winner of this mock battle may surprise listeners. The cast then begins a discussion of their new viewing of the Beast Wars cartoon television series for the twentieth anniversary of the show. Episode 1 of Beast Wars is discussed on this episode. Finally, the show ends with each podcaster choosing a particular favorite discussion thread from our forums that they've seen recently.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"

The Road To Multiverse - This episode starts out with a double dose of excellent listener questions, beginning with a debate over which Combiner Wars Deluxe Class Transformers Toys are the best. Once we move on from that, we take a look at the overall story arc of IDW Publishing's Transformers comics, after our listener question points out a peculiarity of the supposed direction of the books. From there, the recently revealed Titans Return Leader Class Soundwave from Hasbro sets a backdrop for discussing the use of gimmicks once associated with certain characters being brought over to toys of characters whose fiction never utilized those same gimmicks. The gears change after that with a look ahead to the upcoming second season of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, with the cast outlining their hopes for the series. A discussion and debate about the merits of a Transformers universe multi-verse follows, then we finish up the show with our not Generations or Masterpiece edition of the recurring Bragging Rights segment.

Whale Wars - This episode starts out with a debate and deconstruction of IDW Publishing's "Sins of the Wreckers" number two, with the crew breaking down the content of the issue and offering their opinions on the plot, and its potential for advancement, thus far.

A fascinating listener question then follows regarding Decepticon faction symbols and their orientation. This leads in to a special discussion about the original Transformers "Generation One" and its place in today's fan community. The show then puts a final definitive cap on 2015, including the holiday season and gifts given to others. A look ahead on hopes for the Transformers brand in 2016 caps off a fun show.

IDW Transformers: Holiday Special 2015 Review

Holiday Special 2015 Review - Channelling her best Dr Seuss, Scott manages to blend the mischievous, narcissistic, egotistic nature of Starscream with the seasonal tradition Grinch, and to wonderful effect.
