Twincast / Podcast Episode #323 "Collective Thinking"

Collective Thinking - Life's biggest mystery is, for some, what to collect or what doesn't belong on the shelf. Episode 323 of the Twincast Podcast attempts to answer that question, but first, new reviews of Rise of the Beasts mainline Optimus Prime and Primal are discussed to warm things up. Studio Series War for Cybertron Barricade has finally appeared to us in figure form and takes the spotlight next in the conversation. Next, we discuss recently released galleries of G1 Metroplex and Trypticon along with the Street Fighter collaboration figures. Changing gears, the crew checks in to discuss their Transformer collecting approaches at the moment and give some very late advice to our younger selves.

Russian Fans will be able to watch Rise of the Beasts in Russian Despite Sanctions

Posted 22 hours ago by william-james88 - 6,190 views

Western films are included in the sanctions related to Russia at the moment, so Transformers Rise of the Beasts could never have a legitimate release there. However, through a bypass release (aka smuggling), the film will be released in Russia with Russian dubbing. It is not sure if it will be shown in all cities and since this is a bypass release, any revenue it will generate will not be counted towards the global box office for this film. It is due out there June 15th. The dubbed trailer is - Read More

Sonic Bomber Core has posted these new images of an upcoming Transformers Legacy toy on Facebook. It is non other than Shadow Striker from the Cyberverse series and it us our first look at the figure.
