Twincast / Podcast Episode #347 "Swooped In"

Swooped In - Episode 347 of the Twincast / Podcast swoops in to look at all the latest in Transformers while looking back once again. The episode begins with onsite commentary about the Wondercon Studio Series toy reveals such as Bumblebee Movie Shockwave and the highly anticipated Studio Series 86 Leader Class Swoop, plus Bumblebee Movie Sunstreaker and Gamer Edition Sideswipe who are already in the hands of the crew for discussion. The toy talk continues with an unsurprising leak of Legacy Sideburn, a new Target 4 pack, leak of a possible Masterpiece God Ginrai giving new life to the MPG line, and yet another Collaborative reveal with the TMNT Turtle Van challenging the dais to buy 4 copies for the display. This week's installment of the "40 for 40" segment takes us to the year of 2004 with Energon leaking all over and the crew taking the podcast into the shop for a new Alternator. As always, the joy of Transformer collecting is shared as Bragging Rights brings the show to a close.

Quintessons Rumoured to be Featured Prominently in Transformers One Movie and Toyline

Posted 2 days ago by william-james88 - 13,656 views

While tallying up the various responses to the Transformers One footage shown at Cinemacon, we got a sense of the story, and it appears that the villains of the movie will be the Quintessons. This is pre war and more about the origin of Transformers, so it makes sense that the Quintessons are an element. Both Orion (Optimus) and D 16 (Megatron) will team up to take them on, while also searching for the Matrix of Leadership (this film's MacGuffin) Indiana Jones style. We also know from a - Read More

New Listings for Swapticon Gimmick Line Leaked

Posted 9 days ago by Emerje - 31,865 views

As usual Jtprime17 has found us some new listings for figures with no context to explain them, in this case it's "Swapticon". The prevailing theory is that they're some sort of modular figures that can swap parts among each other, perhaps a spiritual successor to the long defunct Hero Mashers line from 2014. Another theory is that these are similar to the Beast Combiners figures from the Rise of the Beasts movie line since all appear to be two packs. But what's getting the most attention isn't - Read More
