Twincast / Podcast #186 "NYCC 2017"

NYCC 2017 - In the latest episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "NYCC 2017", the latest reveals from Takara Tomy and the new products showcased at this years New York Comic Con are discussed in depth, some garnering prase while others raise questions. Our discussion begins with two reveals from Takara Tomy that seemed to be a given but still a pleasant surprise, Grand Maximus and Greatshot. We then take a look at the figures revealed at NYCC including the Terrorcons, more Pretender decoy shells and the last of the monsterbots, Grotusque. Botcon may be gone but it appears the shattered glass concept is alive and well in Hasbro's mind with the upcoming Rodimus Unicronus figure, which raised some questions with the crew. We take a break from the toy talk to answer a few listener questions including how to avoid burnout in terms of collecting, current distribution issues and its effect on buying in store versus online, as well as a fun question about which alt modes we would like to see more of. We have a brief round of Trainbot bragging rights before wrapping up with a special segment from the TFcon Podcast Panel.
