We're back with an all-new, action-packed Twincast/Podcast. Don't wait to download this episode, featuring your host Counterpunch, along with the return of Jon3.0, Tigertracks, and Razorclaw.

This episode starts out with a very special interview, made possible by Paramount pictures. Seibertron had the opportunity to interview two of the "Wing Men", J.T. Holmes and John Devore, who created the epic scenes free-flying through Chicago during Dark of the Moon.

Image

After that, your hosts discuss the release of Dark of the Moon on Blu-ray and DVD, including the lack of special features.

Image

Further media discussion include the release of Beast Wars Seasons 2 and 3, the beginning of the season finale of Transformers Prime, and Ongoing #27.

Image

Image

Image

The podcast then swings back to toys, with the surprise announcement of Encore Soundblaster and Twincast, featuring some very obscure homages.

Image

Next, we grill Matt on his experiences with MP-10.

Image

After that, we talk Chronicles, namely the recently released Megatron and Optimus Prime sets:

Image

Image

Following Chronicles talk, we give you the run down on some of the latest third party and knock off news, including the Dino Cassette KOs, PE RC, MakeToys RTS G2 Prime Tanker, and FansProject Causality Insecticons.

Finally, we wrap up with some hints at upcoming galleries and bragging rights!

Just realized you guys couldn't post comments about this podcast because I had left the topic in the staff forum, which you guys don't have access to. If this happens again in the future, please email me or send me a PM or something so that we can get it fixed.

Hope you guys enjoyed listening to this episode. Can't wait for the next one. I'm going to do my best to hop on since I've missed the last few.

Not going for the Sideways figure, lol. As usual, I enjoyed this one. I'm thinking I need to get a buddy and manage to swindle an Enemy (maybe Wing Thing) and Twincast for myself. The other new cassettes are just fluff to me. I'm really hoping Hasbro shows and offers MP Optimus Prime soon. I'm holding out for a domestic release.

I might pick one up at $60 myself. The price for what it currently is, I just find to be unacceptable. I figure if collectors like myself don't stand up at some point and say "no" that we'll get more and more of this over time and collectable TFs will go the way of Bandai's Macross line.

I got the Target transforming Optimus Prime 2-disc DVD of Movie 1, and the Wal-Mart two-pack of Movie 1 that included the "Transformers: Beginnings" DVD. Though, I only got the Wal-Mart IMAX DVD of ROTF, and that's all I needed. :-B

I'm gonna wait for the Complete Series box set to double-dip on Beast Wars so I can get the "Dawn of Future's Past" comic.

On the note about the deleted scene from Beast Wars with G1 Megs' spark getting put back in, the full animatic of "Nemesis Part 2" released on the Rhino DVD set showed that there were even more bits of footage cut out of that episode, in addition from the spark return scene.

I'm guessing by the time this has been released, some of you guys have seen "One Shall Rise, Part 3" on YouTube. ;)

The Unicron Trilogy was three seasons. Armada, Energon, and Cybertro nwere each one season consisting of 52 episodes (and four 13-episode story arcs each). Seasons for anime are treated differently for seasons of Western TV shows.

For a while, I was using Movie 1 Elita One for a Classics Arcee stand in.

The set is out. I'm not sure if that's what you mean by "waiting for", or if you are waiting on it showing up Amazon, or something else.

That's what I was trying, and failing, to get at. Thanks!

I bought it from Shout via a preorder:

I've had it since June.

The Japanese complete series has been pushed back, however.

That's it as an online Shout! Factory exclusive. I'm talking about its mass retail release.

Got it. I'm unsure what Shout's plans are.

I guess Nov. 1 is the release date, according to TVShowsOnDVD.com.

Now that i think about it,maybe they didthe Transformers fight Unicron now,so that Megatron stop being obsessed with Dark Energon.

You guys have nearly counterpunched me into buying the Dino-Cassettes, but that GenZhao guy is such a hateful, psychotic dick. I'm reluctant to support his business.

And apparently I'm not the only one. Active discussion about their shitty customer service on TFW.

I'm not big on being a negative nancy on the boards, but I find more reasons to not shop with KOToys than I do to suck it up and just hit buy on Paypal.

Honestly don't know what these guys are talking about when it comes to MP Prime. Yeah I get the crying about the price tag is on the high side but what the figure lacks in size it more than makes up for in details. As noted it's the definitive G1 accurate version of Optimus Prime. Honestly why even bother listening to a review if only one person has the figure. Its alt mode is beautiful in comparison to its predecessors.

The guys in the Podcast have cardboard personalities as well. Definitely not a fan and don't think I'll be listening to it again. Whole lot of b*tching going on it seems. Waaaaaa.... "He doesn't come up to Megatrons shoulder" So sad. The shortest figure in the MP line was Grimlock by the way, not Rodimus.


Be nice to get a more balanced review, Because honestly the earlier MP optimus don't hold a candle to it.

"Aren't you glad you use Dial?" Really??? Jon3pnt0 where did you pull that one of?

I think I'll stick to listening to Canadian Transformers Podcasts way better.

Yup, and it's not so much the disliking it but the constant whining. Hell If you don't like it you don't like it. But it comes off so poorly. Come on, I expect more and there might be my fault.

Oh yaaaaaayyyyyyy....... Let me guess you rip into MP-11 and how it's shade of red is slightly off. Wait does one of you actually cry only to find the paint apps on your T-formers were poorly painted on and the color runs. Hahaha.... Damn if that happened maybe I will have to listen to one more episode actually.

The suspense is killing me, I could totally have a seizure of joy. Lol
