Symmetrical Docking - The Twincast / Podcast presents episode 223, which starts out with in-hand impressions of the recently released Transformers Generations: Siege line's Leader Class Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime.

This is followed by part two of a special retrospective at Transformers Classics and the Generations line it eventually spawned. This episode picks this up at the end of the initial lineup with the unforgettable Botcon 2007 "Games of Deception" set which gave collectors their only opportunity at the time to complete the set of the primary six Decepticon Seeker jets. After reminiscing on the convention, discussion turns to the Transformers Henkei lineup's initial several months of releases, with special focus on unique import color variants such as Astrotrain and Megatron. The retrospective discussion then turns to Takara exclusives like Wildrider and another Thundercracker before wrapping up at the start of Universe 2.0 and the reveals of toys such as Sunstreaker and Cyclonus.

Of course, that is partly due to his cartoon being much closer to the toys, so a toy looking like the show basically means it looking like the - Read More
