Twincast / Podcast Episode #221 "Appliance Wars"

Appliance Wars - Episode 221 of the Twincast / Podcast, "Appliance Wars", begins with in-hand impressions of the just released Transformers Masterpiece MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron. The transformation, accessories and even the concerningly fragile midsection pieces are discussed at length. After that, opinions are shared about the upcoming Generations Selects series Star Convoy and whether or not the toy goes far enough into evoking its namesake character design. The release of the Bumblebee movie on home video formats brought with it several special features and deleted scenes. The cast discusses their favorites of these, as well as the original opening of the film which was replaced by the time of the movie's release with the fan-favorite Cybertron battle sequence. Listener questions come next, starting with one asking about what characters in IDW Publishing's now concluded first Transformers comics continuity that we would have liked to see more of. This is followed by ideas about possible crossover franchises that could join up with the Transformers in media or toys in the future. The next listener question sees the show's host give a new twist on some older characters from the Japanese Generation One continuity. Once this concludes, the show also does after a round of bragging rights, including a look back at the past weekend's annual Dairycon event.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #220 "Classically Trained"

Classically Trained - The Twincast / Podcast presents its 220th episode, "Classically Trained", starting out once again with in-hand impressions of some of the latest Transformers Voyager Class toys to hit retail in Studio Series Rampage and Optimus Prime. Part one of a special retrospective at Transformers Classics and the Generations line it eventually spawned starts next, with a look back at the genesis of the idea with Alternators, Dreamwave publishing's comic books and other releases from series such as Transformers: Energon. The retrospective continues with the beginnings of the Classics line itself, with popular characters such as Bumblebee, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream hitting shelves first. The cast talks through the initial Classics run ending up with the Walmart exclusive Devastator released in early 2007. After this, Jon Bailey, voice of Soundwave and Shockwave in the Bumblebee movie, talks through his latest experiences that day at Paramount studios where he was able to talk about the movie with its screenwriter Christina Hodson, Foley artists Alicia Stevenson & Dawn Lunsford and on-set mechanic Sarah Lyon. A listener question about the upcoming Netflix series is followed by a chat about IDW Publishing's Transformers #2 and their newly relaunched Transformers comics universe. The recurring Bragging Rights segment concludes another episode as usual.
