Ahh Calvin Johnson, the star of the Detroit Lions. Ever wonder how you could become Megatron and the hero of your football team? Well all you need to do is drop $550 for a set of shoes (oh oh and a bonus toy!) See what the twincast thinks and see if this will be making it into your collection.

Oohhh look at all the purple :shock:

The new Transformers Cloud figures have been revealed, how are you feeling about these figures so far? I'm feeling a bit nostalgic with Megatron being a tank (editor's note: Rotorstorm just got Counterpunched into buying the GDO G2 Colors).

Don't we all just love movie reveals! ;) Some plot details have surfaced confirming that TF4 is a soft reboot.

...and we also get to see a pretty cool image of Prime in robot mode on the from cover of EMPIRE magazine.

In this episode we take a few listener questions about the total number of people that could be in the fandom worldwide to the most epic question of the night, is awesomesauce and man-gravy the same thing!?! The world may never know... (thanks mooncake623 and Kibble!).

The Twincast crew closes out the night with the braggin' rights, which is just chock full of Kreo goodness!

Thanks everyone for listening and we appreciate the continued support! Don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Energon Pub Forums!

You know, I'd been wondering why the Year of the Horse toys haven't included a bunch of slight Mach Kick repaints to finally give us the lost Thoroughbred Corps. Sure we didn't get any new Quickstrike, Cohrada, or Night Viper in the Year of the Snake, but none of those molds have precedents for army buildin' they?

Then again, if that toy suffered any remolding comparable to Ultra Mammoth's, the resulting reissue could be a total disaster.

I think it'd be really neat to do a box set of repainted Beast Wars figures in Chinese Zodiac sets.

Rat – 鼠 (子) (Yang, 1st Trine, Fixed Element Water)
Ox – 牛 (丑) (Yin, 2nd Trine, Fixed Element Water)
Tiger – 虎 (寅) (Yang, 3rd Trine, Fixed Element Wood)
Rabbit – 兔 or 兎 (卯) (Yin, 4th Trine, Fixed Element Wood)
Dragon – 龍 / 龙 (辰) (Yang, 1st Trine, Fixed Element Earth)
Snake – 蛇 (巳) (Yin, 2nd Trine, Fixed Element Fire)
Horse – 馬 / 马 (午) (Yang, 3rd Trine, Fixed Element Fire)
Goat – 羊 (未) (Yin, 4th Trine, Fixed Element Fire)
Monkey – 猴 (申) (Yang, 1st Trine, Fixed Element Metal)
Rooster – 雞 / 鸡 (酉) (Yin, 2nd Trine, Fixed Element Metal)
Dog – 狗 / 犬 (戌) (Yang, 3rd Trine, Fixed Element Metal)
Pig – 豬 / 猪 (亥) (Yin, 4th Trine, Fixed Element Water)

Rat - Rattrap
Ox - ?????
Tiger - orange Tigatron
Rabbit - Stampy
Dragon - Transmetal 2 Megatron
Snake - Cohadra
Horse - Mach Kick
Goat - Ramulus
Monkey - Optimus Primal (or Optimus Minor)
Rooster - ?????
Dog - K-9
Pig - Razorbeast

I'll gladly take a Beast Wars Ox or a Cow mold along with a Rooster. Come up with some awesome color schemes for these guys, give them new names if desired, and I'd be a pretty happy Transformers fan.
