Is that transformer from TF4 "smoking" a bullet and does it have a beard? Really??

I bet that is Hound, right? Hound if he were a bullet smoking, bearded human marine??

Yup that is supposed to be Hound. Hey, he's got a very rough and tumble military vibe going though with the bullet belt he carries, kinda like Rambo! ;)

Well, um... the characters in the original cartoon had noses too... :-?

Yeah, but nostrils too? The nostrils are what made me shake my head. The "noses" in G1 were not like this. The thing looks like it is supposed to be a human or something.

but at least I feel that, with how he looks...he still will maintain some of what Hound was known for...I hope...I pray....

Hmm good point, the nostrils do seem to be pretty unnecessary...unless they are going to be sniffing energon :lol:

LOL...I like that. The thing looks more like Brawn than Hound. Not that it really looks like Brawn, but closer than Hound. I really can't understand how these people who claim to know about TF's make these judgment calls on characters. I can just see Bay in a board meeting giving the thumbs up to anything that resembles any human he has ever directed as a Transformer. Lockdown there kinda resembles Ben Affleck. Maybe its name isn't Lockdown after all, but Ben Afflecktron. He'll spend the whole movie with extreme close ups rambling on about how someone just needs to get him in a plane.....

Yes, because machines totally don't need to 'breath' to keep internal systems running...

The audio in this one is really quiet for some reason. I have to turn the sound on my laptop all the way up to a reasonable medium-sounding volume.

Yup. Direct download like normal, and it went swimmingly, possibly the fastest a Twincast Podcast episode has ever downloaded for me.

Same here, the podcast usually take about 20 minutes for me, but this on was done in about 4-5.

Just checked the audio. Seems great on my computer. Sabrblade, maybe try downloading the episode again? It should be about 57.94 MB. Have you tried listening to previous episodes again to see if the problem happens with other episodes?

Just compared the audio of previous episodes with that of this one. With the sounds turned all the up, those episodes have booming loud audio, meaning that they sound normal. It's only this one that has quieter audio.

Just tried downloading it again, same method of direct downloading, and it took a bit longer this time, but the result is the same: Softer audio.

But, I've already listened to it all the way through, anyway.

Also, on UT Maniaking:

Not a stupid question at all. You would think he does, but he doesn't.

YOTH Prime comes with the trailer, gun, & axe.

I have to disagree with Mike's comments about Roadbuster never doing anything important. With his excellent story telling ability, Roadbuster brought Springer back from the brink of death in the IDW continuity. I am forever indebted to him. ;)

Agreed. I'd love to see it reprinted into a one shot or something with some art to really bring it to life.

To be honest, I really don't like all the various 3rd party names. I don't put much thought into them at all.

Now that you put it like you did, I'm inclined to agree with you.

Still, it's just Galvatron to me. ;)
