Twincast / Podcast Episode #200 "Requiem of the Twincast"

Requiem of the Twincast - In this episode of the Twincast Podcast, "Requiem of the Twincast", the show celebrates its 200th episode with several special segments. To start the show, Transformers comics writer and artist Nick Roche, responsible for fan-favorite works Last Stand of the Wreckers, Sins of the Wreckers, and the upcoming Requiem of the Wreckers, sits down for a long chat about what's come before and what's yet to come in Requiem of the Wreckers. The interview includes topics about characters and the writer's process for defining them, with plenty of teases to get you ready for his latest work. A retrospective look at past works is also in store, and there are plenty of details that you won't want to miss within this special interview. After that, the current and former host of the show look back on the history of the Twincast Podcast, including its origins and where it could go in the future. Then, a wider selection of podcasters takes questions and comments from the show's community of listeners. These lead to several topics, such as superlative Transformers toy lines that have been released since 2010, some of the crew's greatest hits and misses in their collecting, and even a look at each cast member's favorite Generation One Transformers toy.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #199 "Like It's 199(9)"

Like It's 199(9) - In this episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "Like It's 1999", discussion begins with impressions and speculation about the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee live action movie set for release later in the year. Business news comes up next, with Hasbro's acquisition of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers intellectual property from Saban potentially creating waves in the toy industry. Keeping the potential for crossovers in mind, the chat goes off the beaten path and examines several "what if" crossover scenarios for Transformers. Friends, foes, and even cooking competitions and sporting events involving the Transformers come to the forefront for a long discussion that should not be taken too seriously! There's still time for discussion of some recent Transformers comic book releases from IDW Publishing, with Optimus Prime's 17th and 18th issues and their major twist receiving analysis from the cast. A look at the Free Comic Book Day "0" issue of Transformers: Unicron rounds out the episode's topical discussions, with the recurring Bragging Rights segment closing the proceedings.

Top 5 Best Toys R Us Transformers Exclusives of All Time

Top 5 Best Toys R Us Transformers Exclusives of All Time

Best TRU Exclusives - There are not many lists I have written which I won't have to edit in the coming years. It's only normal since more toys come out and new fiction is written (even for existing universes) that there are bound to be updates and new toys that come which make my list dated and in need of an update (like my Top 5 Best Grimlock toys for instance). But when I read the words "All stores CLOSING forever!" in a recent e-mail Toysrus sent out, I realized that with a list like this, it can be definite. So, in honour of this store we all once loved and which many will never be able to walk into again, I decided to look back on its amazing history if Transformers exclusive. Thanks to the multiple board members who suggested the topic, I hope you enjoy it!
Toys R Us rejects bid from billionaire toy CEO Isaac Larian

Toys R Us rejects bid from billionaire toy CEO Isaac Larian

TRU rejects Larian Bid - For those of us hoping that Toys R Us still had a shot at salvation, those hopes might have been squelched yesterday evening. Various mainstream news agencies reported yesterday that Toys R Us rejected billionaire Isaac Larian's bid to "save" hundreds of Toys R Us stores in the United States and Canada. Larian is the CEO of the toy company MGA Entertainment, home of the popular and highly collectible L.O.L. Surprise Dolls as well as Bratz (competitor to Barbie) and Little Tikes. As of this writing, it is unknown why Toys R Us rejected his bid, perhaps because it was not enough or maybe because it's just time to move on. Read more ...
