Twincast / Podcast Episode #118 "Countdown to Botcon 2015"

Countdown to BotCon 2015 - As we begin the countdown to Botcon 2015, in this episode's special segment the Twincast sits down with Pete Sinclair of Fun Publications. Sit back and enjoy while we find out what really goes in to putting together one of the premier Transformers conventions. You might even hear a surprise or two! As we transition on to some toy talk, we'll discuss our thoughts on a new video that has surfaced finally showing how Combiner Wars Devastator will combine. Images have surfaced of some pretty wild decos of SDCC exclusive Arcee, Windblade and Chromia! Up next, images of the newest member of the Platinum Edition family, Trypticon, have been revealed! Now comes time for one of our favorite segments of the show, another round of bragging rights! Tune in to hear what the cast picked up since the last episode.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"

Block Town - We get started with a few of this year's Club exclusive figures: Subscription Service 3.0 Carzap, Club "freebie" Lio Convoy, and Club Store exclusive Nova Prime. Next up we discuss Combiner Wars Leader Thundercracker. With the release of Legions Class Cliffjumper, Skywarp, and Ultra Magnus, some of us want to know what all the Ultra Magnus fuss is about. We move onto something BIG - San Diego Comic Con's exclusive Titan Devastator. Next up is Unite Warriors Defensor with deluxe class Protectobot Groove. The time is ripe ... for a LISTENER QUESTION! News staff member williamjames88's thoughtful query initiates a lively discussion about buying at retail vs online. We get on to some unlikely art-talk with the release of five very cool Fembot concepts by IDW artist Alex Milne. The popularity of female Transformers amongst the fandom, and the demand for more toys of such characters, has been an encouraging trend. Botcon is less than a month away, and we've caught wind of some rumored Waspinator-based army builders. Which of these taste-the-rainbow decos make sense, and which don't? We finish up with some bragging rights!
