Twincast / Podcast Episode #235 "Pre-Holidaze"

Pre-Holidaze - In episode 235 of the Twincast Podcast, the talk begins with commentary on Jim Sorenson’s new book Transformers: A Visual History, which brings new artwork along with a deluxe packaging option for Transformers fans to digest. After that, the cast takes time to address the rumors about potential toy releases in the upcoming Generations War for Cybertron: Earthrise lineup and which seem likelier to be true than others. With War for Cybertron: Siege winding down, its blacklight codes have also come to an end with a map of Cybertron as the final bonus content they've delivered. A brief chat about some Chinese mythology comes next with a look at some upcoming Transformers Nezha toys. With Black Friday just around the corner the crew is keeping their eyes out for some deep discounts on particular items, so they share what they're hoping to buy next week. The episode ends with a round of bragging rights that includes some finds from overseas.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #234 "Hell in a Cel"

Hell in a Cel - Episode 234 of the Twincast Podcast begins with a look back at TFcon 2019 from the perspective of a first time attendee. After that, the regular show format begins with follow-up from that including the typical "Bragging Rights" ending segment happening first, with each member of the cast sharing their acquisitions at the convention and beyond. Topics turn to the recently released retailer exclusive products from the Generations: War for Cybertron Siege lineup, with the Walgreens exclusive Ratchet and Walmart exclusive 35th anniversary figures such as Soundblaster, Bluestreak and the "Animation" deco Voyager Class Optimus Prime and Megatron. The group discusses the "cel-shaded" look of the figures and whether they would want to see more of this type of paint job on Transformers toys in the future. The chat turns to another unusual exclusive repaint in the Bump of Chicken Sonic Bumblebee before moving on to take a look at the newest Botbots and Cyberverse toys headed to store shelves in the very near future, if not there already. The show concludes with a lighthearted read through of Blaze's Tech Specs and biography entry from the Grandreams Transformers Generation 2 Annual.
Top 5 Best Beast Wars Toys of Non Show Characters

Top 5 Best Beast Wars Toys of Non Show Characters

Best Non-Show Beast Wars Toys - We don't see it as much these days, but in the 80s and 90s, the characters you saw on a Transformers show were just a subset of all the toys available. Business-wise, the shows served to advertise the toyline that you would then discover and the toys would have their own appeal based on how they looked. Growing up with Beast Wars, I remember pouring over the back of the cards and boxes of the few I got to see all the other wonderful toys of characters I did not know. And that's what we are looking back on today, the toys from the Beast era of characters that never appeared on the North American CG Beast Wars (Beasties) show.

After that the discussion pivots to the recently released Amazon exclusive fan vote three-pack of Deluxe Class figures featuring Impactor, Mirage and the Powerdasher Aragon. With the Powerdasher set being completed by this figure, the crew takes time to consider what other Generation One toys still don't have an updated incarnation in the Generations lineup with so much of the original 1980s cast now having a modern toy interpretation available. After some speculation about Takara Tomy's mysterious "Raiden project" that's coming soon, the episode pivots to listener questions about the Transformers TCG from Wizards of the Coast as well as Cyberverse Grimlock.

Masterpiece MP-46 Blackarachnia News Roundup

Posted 7 days ago by william-james88 - 23,765 views

So Masterpiece Blackarachnia is out, what do you all think? I personally think she is exactly as expected from the images. The robot mode is excellent, the paint work is probably the best I have ever seen in my life on a Transformer, but the whole abdomen area for the spider is indeed as it looked on the best pictures. The frustrating part is that not everything tabs in securely in that area. Also, the gold coming out under the abdomen when viewed from the front is the underside of her chest - Read More
