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.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #233 "The Return of the King"

The Return of the King - The Twincast Podcast's 233rd episode begins with a look at the newly revealed products for Cyberverse set to launch in the coming months including versions of popular characters such as Whirl, Repugnus and Bludgeon. After that talk about Generations toys takes over with the cast checking out the site's newest galleries featuring Leader Class Astrotrain, Voyager Class Apeface, Deluxe Class Spinister, Crosshairs and the Battle Masters Singe and Rung. 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. The episode concludes with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment where cast members share their most recent Transformers product acquisitions.

First Look at New Chinese Exclusive Transformers X Nezha Toys

Back in February 2018, we posted that Hasbro was going to do a Chinese exclusive initiative called Transformers Nezha. This is a crossover between the Transformers brand and Chinese mythological characters that will feature both a cartoon show and an accompanying toyline.

Thanks to the Edduardo Vinz Colin AKA @cybercookiereports on Instagram, we have a huge list of potential Earthrise figures that have now hit the rumor mill. Now before we get to the list, we remind you that these are merely RUMORS and we have no hard confirmation for any of these figures yet, though a few were on this list from a few days ago.

More Images of the New Wendy's Kids Meal Transformers Toys

Posted 2 days ago by william-james88 - 9,179 views

It's not every day (or month or year or decade) that Wendy's gets Transformers toys in their kids meals. So since I found some better images online, I thought it would be a good idea to share them. Especially since these are a rather new way to make a promotional Transformers toy. Animated was the lat time Hasbro allowed transforming toys to be sold by anyone other than them, so promotions had to find something else for gimmicks. We had launchers, wind up toys, even eye wear and now with - Read More

Earthrise Titan Class Scorponok's Head to be Based on Rebirth Cartoon

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 17,778 views

We knew Scorponok was coming for a while and we saw the headmaster unit at NYCC 2019. However, Vector Sigma on Facebook gave the footage another look and checked to see what else they could gather from what was presented. They took one of Seibertron's screenshots showing the back of the larger headmaster (so Scorponok's titan head), reoriented it and coloured it to see which style they were going for. As it turns out, the visor we see means titan class Scorponok, who is a double headmaster this - Read More
