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.

Pictorial Review of Transformers: Robots in Disguise Legion Cyclonus and Heatseeker

Posted 9 hours ago by william-james88 - 3,266 views

The Robots in Disguise legion class as a whole has been one of the highlights from the line. It kept the legion (previously known as legends) class alive and brought in fresh ideas and designs along with innovative transformations, especially for the size class. It was also a good way to get several characters at a similar scale and get a really nice team of Decepticons (as you will see below) without resorting to simpler/gimmick figures. Cyclonus and Heatseeker are perfect additions to this - Read More

Posted 11 hours ago by william-james88 - 2,893 views

Robots in Disguise Legion Cyclonus and Heatseeker had yet to be found in North America, until now.

Hopefully that is a sign that they will be found in the US soon, though with the Bludgeon wave still MIA in the US months after sightings from around the globe, you can never be sure. Good luck on the hunt if these interest you and stay tuned for a pictorial review - Read More
