Twincast / Podcast #175 "Bayhem"

Bayhem - On Episode 175 of the Twincast Podcast, titled "Bayhem," the group first discusses the new international trailer for Michael Bay's Transformers: The Last Knight that was released May 18, including plot points, characters, and other new information. Articles interviewing Ian Bryce, the producer for The Last Knight, as well as the movie writers, is also discussed at length. The conversations move to international promotions for the movie, including a Coca-Cola raffle in China, a Coca-Cola steelcase promo in Singapore, and 7-11 Japan's exclusive Dark Optimus Prime figure. International distribution and international collector habits are examined in the context of marketing. Following this movie discussion, the group moves on to a comics conversation involving Lost Light #5 and Optimus Prime #7. The crew of the Lost Light find themselves in a functionist alternate universe, and the group takes a close look both at Rung's newfound abilities, as well as at Megatron and the dueling consciences he has found in Terminus and his more recent shipmates. In the latter comic, Optimus Prime embarks on his own evolution as a leader, and the podcast crew gets into the 'humanity' of the Prime, as well as the growing rivalry between the eponymous Autobot leader and the torchbearer Pyra Magna. The podcast ends with a freestyle segment, wherein each cast member discusses a topic of their choice.
Top 5 Best Disguised Robots Amongst Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Disguised Robots Amongst Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Disguised Transformers Toys - I made a list of the Transformers toys which look least like the robot can transform into something else and this is pretty much the opposite. Transformers have always been called Robots in Disguise and some toys really pushed the disguise angle. There are some Transformers that one would never guess are anything more than their alt mode. Of course, the important factor here is that we are talking about their alt mode and not just a pretender shell that hides the robot. I am sure it was assumed, but I am mentioning it just in case. A brick wall would definitely help hide a small robot standing behind it, but what I give you today is the list of Transformers toys who's alt modes provide the best disguise!

Twincast / Podcast #174 "Autobot Jedi Newtypes"

Autobot Jedi Newtypes - The latest episode of the Twincast Podcast, "Autobot Jedi Newtypes", begins with a discussion about the recently discovered effect of Plasticizer Migration on toys from previous toy line ups such as Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. With toys for The Last Knight released the show's cast discusses some of the stand outs, including Deluxe Class Barricade and Voyager Class Optimus Prime. Other Last Knight products from Hasbro such as the Tiny Turbo Changers get time in the spotlight, and the upcoming Masterpiece Movie Optimus Prime is speculated upon as well. A segment touching on tangential pop culture franchises like Rom the Space Knight leads into segments analyzing the most recent IDW Publishing Transformers comics releases. These include Till All Are One number 9, and the sixth issue of Optimus Prime. Yet more diversions from other popular fantasy and sci-fi fictional brands such as Game of Thrones and Star Wars garner some discussion in the context of framing how the Twincast podcasters would like to see the Transformers characters in Michael Bay's live action movies portrayed. The show closes out with the Twincast freestyle, where the participants are free to bring up any Transformers related topic not already discussed during the episode.
