Twincast / Podcast #173 "Crossing The Rubicon"

Crossing The Rubicon - In the latest Twincast / Podcast Mainframes episode, the team tackles Till All Are One Issues 5 through 8. Starting in the first issue, we recap the lead up to the arc, started by events in Titans Return, discuss the buildup and peril, and the Council's first response. We analyze the politics, characters introduced or developed, and the ties to the timeline. Continuing with the next issue, we examine the sweeping action scenes, carnage caused by the invasion, and the characterization of Carcer's inhabitants. Proceeding to issue 7, we remark on the lush visuals and set pieces while delving into Windblade's plan and the subsequent reveal. Concluding with issue 8, we speculate on the larger implications of the reveal, praise the artistic choices, and attempt to divine the future in Till All Are One's near term and the Transformers IDW-verse in the long term.

Twincast / Podcast #172 "Ready For Launch"

Ready For Launch - The Twincast / Podcast's latest episode features ScottyP, xRotorstormx and RodimusConvoy13 discussing the latest Transformers: The Last Knight trailer, Nemesis. Conversation then moves to a look at The Last Knight Movie Toy Launch Day, which is Monday, April 24th. After that, Scotty discusses his thoughts about the amazing engineering behind the latest masterpiece figure, MP-36 Megatron. Next, the cast discusses the color change that Takara just went through on the upcoming Legends series Targetmaster Kup. The season 3 trailer for Robots in Disguise was released and some brief discussion follows on the direction of the show and toy line. We follow up with a listener question about whether or not characters that were "similar" in G1, like Ironhide and Ratchet continue to be redecos/similar molds in the modern toy lines. IDW unveiled the newest Hasbro property cross over "First Strike" and Hasbro teased their new "Reveal Your Shield" Transformers Celebration shortly before the recording, and the cast takes some early looks at these events. We close out the night with a new segment called Blast from the Past as we tell you about some older toys that we've rediscovered recently.

Top 10 Best Transformers Characters From Generation One

Best G1 Characters - This isn't a badass meter, but instead, it is a list about the characters from this era that inspire you or haunt you as you go about your day. The G1 title doesn't necessarily refer to the show (although it is usually a big factor) but instead to the era and the prominent characters stemming from it. We will keep specific modern day interpretations (like IDW) for another time though. Let me know which G1 characters you like best once you have finished reading the list.
