Twincast / Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

And Rom The Space Knight - Our first chat is about the most recent issue of Transformers #54, new series Transformers: ’TIl All Are One and of course, not to be left out a little something we like to call More Than Meets the Eye, issue #54. What is Galvatron’s final play…does he have a trump card or is it all on the table? Is Swindle still alive? Should Megatron die? We ask these questions and more, then to wrap up the comic discussion, we talk more REVOLUTION and decide if the TRANSFORMERS universe is getting a soft reboot, no reboot, or a very hard reboot. Our ongoing Beast Wars TV series rewatch continues with episode 18, "Spider's Game", and episode 19, "Call of the Wild". After that, we briefly reach into our creative bags and throw some paint schemes out there for the new PLATINUM EDITION UNICRON and KRANIX. SDCC is coming soon, and we share what version of TITAN MASTERS FORTRESS MAXIMUS we want the most to be our Fortress. You’d think this would be enough, but nope, we finally delve into a topic led by Counterpunch that breaches the world of packages ... Transformers toy packages that is. The best? The worst? What in packaging attracts you? What turns you off? What packages do you keep or do you just throw it all away? We end this jam session with some bragging about our BEST recent purchases that are toys at least 10 years old.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"

Happy Accidents - We talk about the newest toy reveals from Takara Tomy from Legends Ginrai to new Masterpiece toys like Beast Wars Cheetor, there was a lot of news to discuss. The Beast Wars rewatch segment also continues as the cast takes a look at episodes 14 through 17, featuring the two part "The Trigger" pair of episodes that are well known as some of the best of the season. After talking about some of their favorite import Beast Wars toys from throughout the years, the discussion changes gears and moves towards IDW Publishing's recent announcement of the "Revolution". The introduction of other Hasbro universe characters into the Transformers comic book world has had mixed reactions from fans, and we take it all on. The likes of GI Joe, ROM the space knight, MASK and more even come back around during a discussion of the upcoming Transformers 5 live action movie, where a shared universe looks like a likely possibility as well. The show wraps up with a look at the upcoming Blu-Ray release of The Transformers: The Movie in the US.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"

In Flanders Fields - We take a deep look into the world of Transformers comic book releases from IDW Publishing. This episode's focus is all on More Than Meets The Eye issue number 53, with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al going page by page through the book. This episode will completely "spoil" this issue, and many plot points in the greater IDW Transformers story arc, for readers that have not caught up to this point in the story. Speculation abounds along the way, with several stops to look at where the series has been and where it might be going. This is a special episode of the show in a slightly shorter time format, so tune in as the team analyzes and ponders the goings on with the crew of the Lost Light.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"

May Mayhem - We start the show with a continuation of our Beast Wars Season 1 rewatch. The Beast Wars fun continues after that as the cast members "draft" characters for a fantasy team of robots in three fun rounds. A critical look at the most recent comics releases follows, with both The Transformers #53 and More Than Meets The Eye #53 in the crosshairs. A special topic about the place of music in the Transformers universe, inspired by the recent Sony Music release of the Roll Out album, continues the show, and this features both a review of the album as well as thoughts on how the cast imagines a Transformers soundtrack should be. May Mayhem kicks into high gear after this, with thoughts and even repair tutorials for the Fan Built Combiner Wars Victorion set. This is followed by the anti-climactic small release of Deluxe Groove and the impact that had this week, and we then wrap up toy discussions by moving into our thoughts about the recently revealed Tokyo Toy Show exclusive Loud Pedal from Takara Tomy. Robots in Disguise's 2nd season finale is discussed as well, along with some thoughts about how the show has progressed since the start. We wrap up with a quick bragging rights segment featuring some unique curio additions to our collections.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"

Don't Touch That Dial! - We begin with our thoughts about what we found most intriguing about the original 80s Transformers cartoon. Later, we discuss a selection of episodes from Beast Wars. Then, each cast member talks about their preferred release schedule for Beast Wars Masterpiece toys, followed by discussion about the recently revealed Masterpiece Inferno figure. The show progresses to a conversation about comics, and the penultimate issues of several important story arcs in Sins of the Wreckers, The Transformers, and More Than Meets The Eye. News of upcoming Japanese releases in the Unite Warriors / Combiner Wars toy line takes center stage, as does the many confirmed and rumored differences between the domestic and overseas releases. The show concludes with bragging rights!
