In our latest Twincast/Podcast (which you can download here), ring leader Counterpunch and regular troublemakers Tigertracks, Razorclaw, Jon3.0, and Seibertron delve into some fringe toy collecting for your listening pleasure!

First up, we talk Human Alliance, and the recent sightings of Human Alliance Leadfoot.

Next, we move across the ocean and break down our mixed feelings for Alternity, and the recent announcement the line will continue.

Crossovers come up next, and Jon3.0 plays with himself!

Lastly, Razorclaw and Counterpunch indulge their vinyl fetishes as we bring you the ins and outs on Revoltech.

Revoltechs are made out of PVC and ABS (For the joints), no vinyl involved. :-B

Also, the thumbnail scares me a little :-(, yeah I know, I'm kinda sick for thinking about that. :oops:

Happy to help you out pal! LD Unicron is instrumental in Microns arriving at me door, but specifically, the set that Counterpunch received, was an added bonus to one of my personal grails, DRAGOYELL!!!

I'll say it again, DRAGOYELL!

Rikkomba had an opportunity to get Dragoyell, but sadly and in his words, regretfully, he passed never to see it again. To my knowledge I now have 2 more figures to get, unfortunately they are both lucky draws.

...I'll be the first to say it is an obsession, but also a passion.


Counterpunch you sound as though you are positively beaming and I am thrilled i was able to help your collection come a little closer to completion.

And for clarification purposes, The Rikkomba Collection has just one complete collection of ML DVD Microns. More posts as i listen.

Either you guys got unlucky with a bad Thundershread or I got very very lucky but I have no issues with that toy in the slightest. I can't fault it in any way.

While you've ruined my clever tongue-in-cheek joke, I'm still reasonably right. "Vinyl" is almost always referring to PVC when used colloquially.

Same here, I can't bash Thundershread in any way.

Ah, come on. Crossovers Venom ain't that bad. I like that toy. It is the only Crossover figure I've ever bought.

Love my Alternity Skywarp. I want to get the other seekers, and would love to get Convoy.

Love the podcast like always guys!

I'm still a little surprised when I hear about people listening to us.

It's awesome, don't get me wrong. Just a little strange.

So, where all do you guys get around to listening to the show? In your car? On a bus? Just in and about your home?

Usually listen in at home. Usually play something like Minecraft while I listen. That, or while cleaning up, or dusting my collection :P

I'm thinking about skipping HA Leadfoot all together after all of this negative feedback.

I need to pick up HA Jazz though.

If you have any near you, check TJ Max,I found one there for $16 bucks (but unfortunately didn't have it at the time. Hoping it will hang around for me).

Ah...but is there anything we can leave out to get those things back in?

We try and do questions every couple of months now. We're always so cramped for time, it's tough to get the news and discussion in as it is.

You are thus elected as the official TF crossover dude then. We will expect expert reviews of these figures. Your job is to make the rest of us like them... that includes the robot modes. 8)

can someone tell me why it is that every time I try to download an episode of the podcast it just takes me to a blank page with a box that asks me if I want to subscribe to the feed and that's it? After I click "subscribe" it just goes to a blank page. WTF???

Download iTunes or Zune and subscribe to it is all I can say. it is easier than trying to figure out how to listen to it in the browser.

Go here: http://www.seibertron.com/podcast/rss/

Right click the file link and pick "Save Target As"

That should be it. I never recommend listening to a podcast through a browser.

I agree. I oddly like a lot of them and it gives me an excuse to get outside the comfort zone of regular TFs for me. Aside from the fact that the new Darth Vader TF's knees can't support it's weight, it's a pretty damn awesome looking figure for a SWTF crossover toy. It's cool enough in my book that I'm going to bust out the Death Star Vader toy and finally do a gallery of that when I get Amacron in the next week or so.

I modified the RSS script so that it will force you to download the episode going forward. Hopefully this resolves the problem and doesn't cause any problems with the iTunes integration.
