AEON EXCLUSIVE TERRORCON BUMBLEBEE
--------------------------------------------------
Bio translation: The weapon Bumblebee discovered at the excavation site appeared at first glance to be just a normal piece of equipment. However, the moment curiosity got the better of him, his consciousness was swept away by waves of Dark Energon coursing through his body. This was no ordinary weapon, but a trap planted by dark medic Knock Out! The Dark Energon secreted by Arms Micron Terrorcon Zori has transformed Bumblebee into a rampaging beast. If he is not given immediate treatment, all of the Autobots will be at risk.

Infection Mode: A mode in which he uses his Twin Cannon for long-distance attacks in all directions to deal damage to opponents, then rushing in with blazing speed to infect them with Terrorcon Zori's Dark Energon stinger. Covering both close and long-range combat, this is an incredibly effective combination for Bumblebee.

There were a lot of moments during the podcast where I forgot I wasn't just listening, I was a part of it. :lol:

If they did do Chinese Zodiac Beast Wars figures, I believe they already have everything they need and I think it would be awesome (this of course coming from a Beast Wars freak :P):

  1. Rattrap - Rat
  2. Big Horn/Bonecrusher - Ox
  3. Tigatron/Cheetor - Tiger
  4. Stampy - Rabbit
  5. TMII Megatron - Dragon
  6. Cohrada - Snake
  7. Mach Kick - Horse
  8. Ramulus - Goat
  9. Optimus Primal - Monkey
  10. Archadis - Rooster
  11. K9 - Dog
  12. Razorbeast - Pig

As for WfC vs FoC:

My best friend and I loved playing co-op campaign mode in WfC, though admittedly we're used to coordinating our efforts in such games from years of practice.

I hate how linear the campaign mode is which makes it feel almost 2D like a sidescroller from the 80's, I hate that you can't customize the keys to your liking, and I hate that you don't get to play as any of the race cars from WfC (Sideswipe, Barricade, Breakdown etc.), I hate the loss of double-jumping, I hate how slow the vehicle modes are, even with turbo etc.

I love the weapons, though I only find 2-3 of them to actually be of any use (Riot Cannon in particular, Megatron FTW :P).

I liked certain aspects of the cinematic feel, particularly the end where you jump from one side to the other (Autobot to Decepticon) and from one character to another rapidly. In fact, if the entire game played out like that, it would have been much better in my opinion.

I hate how short it was. I beat the game in like 2 days, and it only took that long because I got bored and had to stop in the middle of playing (though admittedly WfC wasn't too different in this department). I hate how each level was 'tailor made' for each specific character. This again made the gameplay feel very 2 dimensional.

Anyway, great show as always guys :)!

By the way, I'm glad to hear you plan to do galleries of Beast Wars Metals Silverbolt and Rampage :D!

I also noticed that some of your US figures are classified as (Metals) in the galleries for some reason and I never could figure out why unless I'm mistaken and they actually are all Japanese figures (US was Transmetals, Japanese was Metals).

Another great podcast;

Re: TFCCSS; I was waiting on your discussion before deciding on taking the plunge- no offence, but still confused.

I hope that some day I get lucky enough to be in a game with a Jon3pto commentary, but wondering if I am doing something wrong, or am I just that bad, my Titans seem to just show up and blow up- I can't seem to survive any shootout.

keep up the good work--

Lonrac.

fun episode this podcast. between the FOC talk at the beginning and the classics talk near the end it's almost like this ep was geared directly at me!

I had a great time playing MP with you guys last tuesday! i hope to get more opportunities to do so in the future. playing MP the rest of the week made me feel like a small fish in an ocean as i got killed over and over where playing with siebertronians made me feel like a contributing part of a team. anytime you see me on xbox live feel free to send an invite over!

I started seriously collecting transformers again when the classics line started and put a hard limit on myself of only collecting figures that were accurate reimaginings of the G1 characters. As time has gone on i've had to make excuses for some figures and there have been quite a few i've skipped out on even in the universe line. I'm still looking for a hardhead and red powerglide as i conisder white powerglide a large version of micromaster hothouse to combat his black decepticon counterpart storm cloud. bludgeon seaspray earned a way into my collection from the movie lines along with warpath repaint sparkcrusher(the action master), red sideswipe repaint swerve( which is G1 autobot chase in my collection) and runamuck. I still need shadow striker(the black wheelie repaint) from the second movie line for a runabout to complete the duo. I feel a couple smaller bots are better representations of them than the collector club versions.

i've even added lugnut to the collection along with Drift as while they arent G1 bots they are great figures and good additions to the line. but i've passed on the tiny trailbreaker as him and hoist need something a bit more substantial in size to stand proudly with their teammates.

great job as always. as i said last podcast, you ever need someone to answer any questions on the old marvel comics, the FoC game or the classics line i'm always available. keep up the good work!

I play videogames most evenings around 9-10 pm CST and my gamertag is jon3pnt0, so if anyone wants to sit in on some colorful TF gameplay commentary with the characters themselves, feel free to join! :P

Here is the rest of the Jack Angel interview!

Great episode as always, guys. Listening to the podcast always makes me feel like I'm back at a Botcon, talking TFs over dinner or drinks.

Maybe I'll finally take the plunge and get an Xbox so I can play some FoC with y'all.

For me, a Classics figure is any figure that provides a striking homage to the G1 character. Mainly, I want to look at my shelf and feel like I'm looking at the cast of the G1 cartoon/comic. I look for accuracy in color scheme, molded/paint details, robot and (to a lesser degree) alt mode. While most of my Classics display is made up of figures from the Classics/Universe/Generations/RtS lines, I have included a few exceptions for characters who have not received what I consider a Classics style upgrade. Such exceptions include RotF Bludgeon, Animated Swoop, PRID Arcee (as Classics Chromia).

Fun episode to be in, hahaha. I'm Hemskinator on XBL.

I would like to say that the FoC customization is hell of fun, especially with the Prime + Full Level upgrades, when you can get the crown heads (Bumblebee, Optimus, Megatron, Starscream). Running around with a King Starscream character in multiplayer would be hilarious. Or... King Sunstorm ala MP11S

Might have to get 4 turtle microns and repaint them into the obvious.

There's actually a rare Micron auction going on right now; http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574891718&toolid=10001&campid=5336631220&customid=transformers&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.ca%2Fitm%2FTransformers-Arm%20...%20618wt_1271%3C%2Fa%3E

I wonder if Classics Grimlock will now be obsolete and forgotten with the FoC toy coming out..

DUUUUUUUUUDE, Jon, I totally remember Van Pires! I used to love that show when it aired on (I think) Fox Kids. It had these human that turned into CGI car-based guys who were like half-man, half-car hybrids. :D :D :D

Ginrai is officially "Jin-rye". Compare the soft G sound in "God" to the hard G/J sound in "Ginrai":

And if I'm not mistaken, FunPub has used that mold for a previous Botcon exclusive, so perhaps they still have access to it?

It gets better. These teens did this by climbing into the driver's seats of junkyard car chassis and, after turning their keys into the ignition and yelling "Mission Ignition!", the car chassis literally morphed around the bodies of these guys turning them into the Motor Vators. :-B

The bad guys were similar beings only based on cars and folklore monsters instead of cars and humans. They were the Van-Pires and were led by Tracula, a truck/vampire hybrid. :KREMZEEK:

Oh, this show was so 90's and I loved it as a kid. :michaelbay:

Oh hello, Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Pires

Only struggled with a couple of levels on easy but the ending was way to easy to beat on easy which should have been harder than earlier levels even on easy. Just my opinion. Moving on to Normal then going to attempt Difficult.

On hard, the ending was painful. I tried it like 20 times, literally.

I'd suggest getting all of the upgrades in the Teletran I Store before gunning for Hard.. especially the health upgrade. Helps a ton.

Bah, that's too easy!

I didn't even notice the perks in the Teletran store until like he second to last level. Would have made it a bit easier in a few spots, but I got through it on hard without it.

okay question- assuming you have already passed this point.

Starscream going through maintenance shaft, audio log behind grill, before you drop down into shockwave's lab, how do you get it? I've unloaded all my ordanance into the grill, but it doesn't budge........

Also--chapter 2 autobot base, just past stasis pod room, on platform overlooking dropship, how do you get that energon? not allowed shoot or jump.....

There is a path you have to take (which is also necesary to move on through the level) that gives you access to the in vehicle mode.

Thanks;

Thanks,

Finally finished the campaign (on easy---yes I suck), so now I'm going back for the 'fun' bits off gamesradar--Op's axe, the Megafun arcade, grimlocks tv......

re: Prime/rescue bots crossover,
They so have to send Cody along, and then he and Miko can have a "well my bot is stronger than your bot......" argument.

So until it is decided that Miko's student visa expires, and she gets bridged in at 3am-(correct my time difference if I'm wrong) from Tokyo- in her persona-esqe school uniform- it is so Prime time. (excuse the bad puns please)

Yeah, That is cool. twin gun arms.... hard to operate machinery like that but keeps experiments in line.

So finished the campaign again, on normal, have all the blueprints and audio logs, so now what?

You're right, it needs a bit of a freeplay mode, either go through all the levels as another character, or be part of Warpath's combat patrol?
