Great show again guys. Atleast you guys are getting your club toys. My Runabout hasnt shipped yet, and I didnt order a shirt. BTW, my Visa card was hit with fraud charges on Sunday, on a card I havent used on the club store in over a year. Make sure you guys spread the word to cancel any card ever used on the club website.

I'm about 45 minutes in, and this is a great episode so far with lots of exciting things happening in the franchise. Although, I gotta say, not a fan of the HasbroCon idea. There may be some benefits for the corporation, but I think the fanbases are large enough for each franchise to have its own convention and reach a larger number of consumers than one HasbroCon could achieve.

Occupy Botcon. This idea is fantastic. FunPub would freak.

It is crazy that Armada is now 10 years old. Speaking of Armada, I think it is a great idea to bring our Red Alerts to Dallas this year. We should press the button and activate the sirens at the same time. Can you imagine?

I just watched episodes 1 and 2 of the second season of Transformers Prime. I finally got those Doctor Doom jokes and other things I didn't quite understand before skipping ahead to avoid spoilers. It was really good. I took Counter Punches advice and downloaded it from :CON: "itunes" :CON:

Another great show, gents, I do so thouroughly enjoy these longer running episodes. Though I sadly will not be attending Botcon this year, I fully support Occupy Botcon featuring Armada Red Alert. I think for the next show someone should do a retrospective look at Armada, and the fandom's opinions of it ten years on. It could even be a topic for another listener call-in show. What we think of it ten years later.
Anywhats, great job guys, keep it up!

Can someone post a picture of the different color soundwave face?
I'd like to see it.

Book-style is on the left, and the new Encore is on the right.

Even though there have been a bunch of Soundwave reissues by now, I would definitely pay for a second Encore reissue of Soundwave (Soundwave, not Soundblaster) with a cartoon accurate face like that.

You've confused me. Isn't the discussion of the Soundwaves in the podcast the RID prime?
I mean mine has a black face, but some people are claiming red and purple..

Supposedly a picture was tweeted. But I don't know the twitter of whom tweeted.. :)

Sorry, misread your post. Soundblaster is on the brain since he's available at BBTS today, and I've waffled on buying/not buying for hours.

Here's Tigertracks':

And here's the Seibertron gallery:

Whoops.

Do you happen to still have the card back? If so, would you check for the stamped numbers?

Thanks!

Unfortunately I do not. :(
If I had known I would have saved it.
I'll keep my eyes open for another and post info if I see it.

I vote that the next Twincast/Podcast should be a 2 hour long episode about criticizing/improving the TFCC. >:oP Always a great show guys!

I really like that idea. Maybe there's a slim hope that someone at FunPub will listen to it and actually consider some of the improvements, and even if not, it'll give people some thoughts for questions to raise at Botcon itself.

I am so late to the game on listening to this. I just finished listening to it today for the first time (and it was the first time I listened to it "off site" on my phone).

I would respond to some of the things covered in this podcast, but seeing as how a lot of it is outdated by now, with new info having been released since, I guess there's little reason to.

Though, still kinda bugged hearing Ginrai's name like that. Here's a helpful way to remember his name. For those of who drink hard liquor (gin), you need to nice bread (rye) to go with it. "Gin rye" = Ginrai (or "Jinrai" as some spell it). :P
