Twincast / Podcast Episode #213 "How to Say Expensive and Mean It"

How to Say Expensive and Mean It - The Twincast / Podcast reaches episode #213, and the discussion begins with Takara Tomy's upcoming Masterpiece MP-44 Optimus Prime version 3. This toy has a substantial price tag that has caused controversy amongst Transformers fans. In-hand impressions of Transformers Generations War for Cybertron: Siege figures come next, with analysis starting for Deluxe Class figures Sideswipe, Hound, Cog, and Skytread/Flywheels. After that, Micromasters from the Race Car, Battle, and Air Strike Patrols get a look. Weaponizers Lionizer, Blowpipe, and Firedrive come next before the Generations discussion concludes with Voyager Class Megatron and Optimus Prime. A look at the upcoming Generations Select releases of Ricochet and Red Swoop is followed by a quick examination of the recently released Transformers: Botbots lineup. The endings of the long-running IDW Transformers comics continuity comes next, with the end of event book Unicron occurring first. Optimus Prime's namesake series is talked about next before the comics discussion concludes with Lost Light's finale. Bragging Rights close out another episode with early holiday season sales driving the cast's recent purchases.

Generations Selects Ricochet and Red Swoop - Following our last news post regarding this new "Generations Selects" toyline (previously called "Select Series"), we finally have new images of the first two releases, Deluxe Class Red Swoop and Ricochet! These two figures are redecos of Power of the Primes Swoop and Jazz respectively. Red Swoop is based of the original G1 toy's colors (which can be found on the stock renders for the Power of the Primes toy), while Ricochet is meant to evoke the Headmasters character Stepper.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #212 "Countdown"

Countdown - On episode #212 of the Twincast / Podcast, cast members Megatronus and xRotorstormx wax lyrical about how Black Friday has creeped outward to cover most of Thanksgiving week, and how this in conjunction with the advent of online events such as Cyber Monday have dulled excitement for the sales season. The conversation moves to new sightings across Power of the Primes, Studio Series, and Siege. This dovetails into our look at Seibertron's exclusive galleries of War for Cybertron Siege Battlemasters, Micromasters, Deluxes, and Voyagers. The episode moves in a cinematic direction to evaluate new details of the upcoming Bumblebee Movie, including its run time and rating - which compare favorably to this film's predecessors - and a new trailer which provides a glimpse of the movie's action on Cybertron. We wrap up the episode the way we always do - with bragging rights, where cast members discuss what they've acquired since the last episode.
