The Comics department didn't get all of the Livio Ramondelli fun - he stopped by the Twincast as well! We ask the questions everyone always wanted to ask, and have a ton of fun along the way. After you listen, be sure to check out Livio's Website and Deviantart Page for all the latest. Plus, post any questions you might have for Livio right here in this topic, and be sure to check out Va'als written interview with Livio as well.

Just in time to not be relevant, we discuss the Masterpiece Bumblebee silhouette and ponder what the final product might look like. We accidentally guessed a few features correctly, it's pretty rad.

There are new Masterpieces in hand as well. We give our thoughts on G2 Lambor/Sideswipe and some leftover insight on Year of the Horse Optimus Prime.

Straight from the butt butt, Brawn and Starscream have arrived to confuse our shelves once again. Will the Twincast be flying high with these releases, or having them grounded?

After watching the trailer I can't stop making impressions of Mark Wahlberg saying 'Yo, I think we found a Transformer'. I highly doubt he said that exactly, but it's devolved in my mind. Also that trailer explains Evasion Mode Optimus. Can't wait to watch!

Well you know Counterpunch, i'm always game to see pictures the non transformers guilty pleasures. Also, I applaud your quick rant on the Bruticus add-ons, because I was a dumb ass and bought the G2 version as well, and I want something to make my G2 kitsch less terrible.

Robots in Disguise #21-22 are some of the best Transformers books out there, and show that More Than Meets the Eye is not the only title that really really really delivers. What Livio and Andrew did on those two issues is absolutely stunning. :D

That was a fun chat to listen to, and thanks for plugging the written interview too.

As for TransForMarket - we did cover it here: http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... lli/29285/

Marky Mark asked me to tell you to say hi to your mother for him.

Mike's 3rd Party rant towards the end was excellent. ;)^

Man, after listening to the Livio Ramdelli interview, I can't help but love the guy. He just sounds like such a fan of the brand, and it's nice to hear how familiar he is with everything TF.

He was very gracious with his time and a lot of fun to talk with.

That's what the voice in my head sounds like. ;)

There are notable differences between the unreleased GDO Brawn and Cloud Brawn:

Colors aside...all that I picture in my head when I look at Brawn is Violet from Willy Wonka when she starts to turn into the blueberry :lol:

About the cloud starscream... didn't starscream utilize the G2 dreadwing mold giving him both the jet and tank mode in Beast Wars, or even the canceled Starscream/Megatron recolor or Dreadwing/Darkwind from G2?

Well, he was part of the pairing. BB and Megatron were the larger jet, while Starscream was the smaller one.

So, kind of. I mean...he was there.

I think it's a dumb figure, but there's something funny about a cowardly tank.

The Cloud/Butt thing cashes in on the rising prevalence in online storage services and remote server processing in video games, often referred to as cloud servers.

Playstation offers online backup of game files when you subscribe to PS+. SimCity infamously/controversially processes some environmental effects and neighboring city interactions online (thus requiring always on internet connection).

Anyone else having issues getting the episode to either show up or download for iTunes? I've got all the previous episodes but this one won't show up to download.
:BOT:

::EDIT::
Had to jump through some hoops but got it to work by following the link here. It wouldn't come up in the iTunes program itself though before that. It was there, I accidentally deleted it somehow, then it was gone. It wasn't listed to download and I don't have any idea what the issue was preventing me from doing so.
