Episode #163 "Through The Space Hole" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.
The show kicks off with some major comics catch up on the table. A fantastic duo of Scotty P and Razorclaw start out by talking about new sensation hearthrob series Till All Are One, with both issue 5 and issue 6 being available to readers. Discussion includes the title's place in the proper comic universe, the way it expands said universe, and just how creepy Elita really is. Please be aware that as always, all comics talk in the show may contain complete spoilers for certain issues!
Not Optimus Prime's Girlfriend
After that, the comics march continues with a dive into the newly launched Optimus Prime series, and dissect issues 1 and 2, discussing the art style, character appearances, and the larger implications of the series. Also, a lobster rides a sports car and we slide in some oily references to things that you probably wouldn't want your mother to hear.
After adding in the formidable Mr. Starscream to right the ship, the team gets to the relaunched Lost Light and its premier issue 1, and intense speculation on the foreshadowing therein. Prepare to confront and repel us after this topic for the massive space hole in the conversation that occurs. Why is that? Well, we completely forgot about Anode and Lug due to all the foreshadowing!
I hope the show isn't this dull
A brief interlude finds the Twincast podcasters achieving Total Brand Awareness, with that loveable MP3 finding a new job in the process. Suffice it to say that if you haven't read the amazing More Than Meets The Eye: Revolution yet, the laughter here may just convince you that it's time.
Josh Boyfriend is into G1?
Shifting gears, we discuss the reveals of Titans Return Kup and his casemates, Krok and Quake, as well as the other Wave 4 reveals. You didn't think we'd go a whole show without toys, did you? Some of the speculation here is out of date already, but at least there was always that twelve hours where Krok was just an oversized Gatoraider in our minds.
Quakin' in ma boots
Closing out the toy talk is a lengthy discussion of MP Camo Black Bape Convoy, including how to get it and some of the difficulties of the earlier BAPE releases. Hang out and find out just how out of touch some of your favorite podcast pals are(n't).
Definitely not Sleep Convoy
Finally, we wrap up the show with holiday bragging rights. Did we get Transformers for the holidays? Did we give them? Maybe there was a little bit of both. Plus - can you figure out the mystery counterpunching so hardcore, we had to delete it from the show's audio? Probably, but don't tell anyone.
Coming soon to Hascon: companion pieces?
Thanks for listening!

Yep, but he's there more for convenience than desire.

Listening to it this week! Travelling not-solo means no earphones time.

Had I been on this show, I was going to respond to the GI JOE stuff. I really don't have a problem with Skywarp being here or the JOE team using the Nemesis as a base. This is what bugs me:
How the hell do you even explain the existence of Cobra in this shared universe??? If I'm going to read GI JOE, I want them fighting Cobra. Not Direwraiths. Not Rebels in Greece. Cobra. A Ruthless Terrorist Organization determined to rule the world!
There's no way a group like the Cobra that we've known for all these years could exist in the universe now. If they weren't wiped out in All Hail Megatron, surely the EDC, or the Mecha Group in China, would have taken them out by now.
I mean in the original Real American Hero, Cobra was a stretch. They were really well funded for not being a country or backed by any Rogue State or government. I really just don't see how you can have Cobra now.
That's my rant. That's how I feel about this shared universe stuff.

Also apparently while it's a stretch to make some details of it fit in this universe, apparently this Joe is a continuation of a Joe series (or four) where they fought some COBRA.
