Twincast / Podcast Episode #289 "No Thanks Given"

No Thanks Given - The Twincast Podcast gathers on a holiday weekend to talk about the Transformers, starting with the latest rumors of an upcoming Amazon exclusive sub-line featuring the Wreckers. In-hand impressions of several Transformers Collaborative toys follow, beginning with the Jurassic Park themed set featuring Tyrannocon Rex and Autobot JP93. The J. Balvin themed J. Balvintron, plus cassette companions Energia Buzzsaw and Vibras Stripes, are discussed next before the Collaborative talk ends with quick-hit impressions of the just-arriving Draculus figure. A special topic follows which goes around the table to see which toy gimmicks that never seemed to hit their stride, in popularity or execution, the cast would like to see make a comeback. The series finale to Transformers Cyberverse has been made available for most of the world through Youtube or other means, so that gets some attention from the crew before the episode ends with the recurring Bragging Rights segment.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #288 "Filler Episode"

Filler Episode - The Twincast Podcast presents its 288th episode which starts out with reaction to the news of the year long delay for the next installment in the Transformers live action film franchise, Rise of the Beasts. Along with this topic, the cast considers what imaginary "filler" toy-lines they would like to see if the movie's accompanying toys happen to get delayed alongside the film's release. Actually planned toys are the next topic on the slate, with just-revealed Studio Series toys from the Bumblebee movie such as Deluxe Class Brawn and Voyager Class Soundwave creating excitement. The Generations: War for Cybertron: Kingdom Blaster also comes up, with inevitable thoughts about an obvious repaint inspired by the name of this very podcast. Impressions of the first 45 minute long Cyberverse special released last week on Hasbro's Youtube channel comes next, followed by brief lamentations on IDW's ongoing Transformers run inspired by a listener's question. The episode concludes with the regularly occurring Bragging Rights segment.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #287 "Pulse Con 2021"

Pulse Con 2021 - Episode 287 of the Twincast Podcast covers all the latest Transformers Generations products revealed at the just-concluded Hasbro Pulsecon 2021. A look at the Voyager Class "Prime" Bulkhead starts things out, along with thoughts on how appropriate this new toy's design is for the character. The discussion moves along after that to provide thoughts on the remainder of the products from the upcoming Generations Legacy toy line that were shown off, including a new version of G2's Laser Optimus Prime and Deluxe Class entries Skids, Prime Arcee, Kickback and the first part of the new version of the Menasor combiner, Dragstrip. Opinions are provided about the price point of the Pulsecon exclusive Ravage set, then the show moves on to answer listener questions about recent Hasbro product reveal timing and all-time favorite repaints.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #286 "They Might Be Giants"

They Might Be Giants - On Episode 286 of the Twincast Podcast the topics begin yet again with a final status update on the Victory Saber HasLab crowdfunding project, with a check-in on its progress towards stretch goals now that it has surpassed its initial funding goals. Takara Tomy's just revealed MPG-01 Shouki, the first part of its Masterpiece Raiden combiner, has been revealed so the crew talks about that next. A leaked image from a retailer presentation has confirmed the existence of next year's Titan Class entry for the Generations: Legacy lineup, which is none other than Cybertron Metroplex. Opinions split there before the discussion moves on to learn about Hasbro and Takara's listings for Tenseg figure stands. Catch-up chat on the Amazon Exclusive Kingdom Golden Disk collection follows with thoughts provided on all the entries from Ranger to Jackpot to Terrorsaur and more. The episode concludes with the recurring Bragging Rights segment.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #285 "Monster Mashup"

Monster Mashup - On Episode 285 of the Twincast Podcast, things begin with a status update on the latest HasLab crowdfunding project for Victory Saber as well as a potential tier bonus that was mistakenly unveiled. Next, we dive into a large amount of leaks that have surfaced recently, ranging from an exclusive Velocitron line to new vintage Beast Wars reissues, to more R.E.D figures and even more. Target's latest Red Card Exclusive Road Rage was unveiled as well as Draculus, a new Transformers collaboration with Universal Monsters, and we give our impressions on these new toys. We continue our "Classics Retrospective" with a look back on 2011 and some of 2012's releases. Reveal the Shield and the initial Generations line started to wrap up and Japan's United line was gearing up. Exclusives like the Targetmaster Microns, Million Publishing Stepper and clear three-packs were on our radars and Botcon 2012 gave us a small sample of Classic goodness. Closing out this episode is another round of bragging rights.

Thanks to a post on Weibo, we have out first look at some upcoming toys to come to the Transformers RED line. These are Prime Knockout and Ultra Magnus.

Greetings Seibertronians! It's been a very long time coming, but not only is Metroplex's final teammate, Slammer, being released, Emgo316 has posted his video review. Slammer is the last weaponizer to come out in Kingdom. This time, the weaponizer is not a fossil but a mechanical robot. Slammer transforms into a tank by partsforming as all weaponizers did before. He has the obligatory "armor mode" to upgrade other deluxes or voyagers from the WFC trilogy. He also has an unofficial "tower - Read More

Posted 2 days ago by william-james88 - 23,956 views

The Buzzworthy Bumblebee line is probably the most random sublines we ever had in Transformers history with new molds, rereleases from a bunch of different lines, new characters, and now slight redecos of both Studio Series 86 Kup and Earthrise Cliffjumper. They are part of a new wave of deluxe figures which also features the Studio Series B127 toy we had already seen which had a few changes in deco.

Images of WFC Omega Supreme and Ironhide Redcos + More

Posted 2 days ago by william-james88 - 30,686 views

We have some fun images to share with you. Firstly, at the special Q&A held by Hasbro last week, there were some easter eggs on the screen. There were files for Legacy Inferno (which we know is coming) and Shaterred Glass Blaster (which we did not). There were also some very small images that invite fun speculation, like one that might be our first look at Menasor (maybe??). The image that was clearer, at least in terms of us knowing what it is, is a blue redeco of Omega Supreme, which homages - Read More

Alpha Trion and Orion Pax Rumoured as Exclusive 2 Pack in 2022

Posted 6 days ago by william-james88 - 37,397 views

Take this one with a grain of salt please. It has been stated by someone in the know that we could be getting an Alpha Trion and Orion Pax two pack next year. It was said to be the SDCC exclusive. While that's all that was said, it can be easy to guess what molds could be used if this did come to pass. With a nice new Kup mold in the SS86 line, an Orion Pax redeco should be right around the corner. As for Alpha Trion, some have guessed the Scourge mold which would fit. We really don't know more - Read More

Buzz Saw was a redeco of Waspinator in the original beast Wars line and the character and deco has kept appearing in other lines throughout Transformers history. What is interesting here is the headsculpt. The original Waspinator/Buzz Saw toy had a robot head and a mutant head. While Waspinator was portrayed on - Read More

In Hand Images of Kingdom Blaster and Eject with Size Comparisons

Posted 6 days ago by william-james88 - 23,028 views

LoneDragon who found Blaster at retail has taken some images comparing him to Soundwave and, more importantly, next to the previously released cassettes. Like that we have a good sense of scale and if they could be compatible. Also, someone was rather astute in pointing out that since Tigatron and Blaster are in the same wave, it is unknown if the wave 4 voyagers ever did hit the US sine Tigatron is in both waves. It could be that all blasters were sold out when we got a sighting of Tigatron at - Read More
