Twincast / Podcast #194 "Toy Fair 2018"

Toy Fair 2018 - In this episode of the Twincast/Podcast, “Toy Fair 2018”, we join ScottyP along with Tigertrack and xRotorstormx as they discuss all the exciting news coming out of New York's Annual Toy Fair event. The episode starts off with the cast's take on the fully revealed upcoming Titan Class Predaking from the Transformers Generations Power of the Primes series. Next up, a discussion of the impressive Power of the Primes Leader Class Optimal Optimus / Optimus Primal takes the crew down a nostalgic road. Abominus, the combined form of the Deluxe Class Terrorcons and Voyager Class Hun-Gurrr made its way to Toy Fair and strutted his stuff, but is he a must have for the cast? In celebration of the upcoming Bumblebee movie release, Hasbro unveiled the first wave of the Movie Studio series toys which sees some updates to our favorite characters along with some names not seen for a while. After the Studio Series discussion, we head back in to Power of the Primes to discuss the Legends Class Duocon pair that forms Battletrap and his different possible combinations. Before things finish up, the crew is joined by Seibertron who was on hand in New York. He provides a firsthand account of the goings on at this year’s Toy Fair, with other details about the toys discussed earlier in the episode. This show concludes with an interview featuring Ben Montano and John Warden of the Hasbro Transformers brand team, as they field questions from the Transformers fan media community.
