Twincast / Podcast Episode #280 "A Roar That Grasps Victory"

A Roar That Grasps Victory - Episode 280 of the Twincast / Podcast begins with speculation on the tease from Hasbro's Haslab for their next Transformers project, where all that is currently confirmed is that it will have something to do with the 1989 Japanese TV installment, Transformers: Victory. Impressions of the just revealed Beast Wars Ravage exclusive for Pulsecon 2021 come next, followed by discussion on the upcoming Generations Selects release of Galvatron II, with a color scheme inspired by the original toy release. Multiple topics analyzing repainted toys follow, including talk on Shattered Glass Jetfire, the four entries in the suddenly released Buzzworthy Bumblebee Worlds Collide set, and the Premium Finish lineup's latest reveals, Ultra Magnus and Movie Megatron. A repaint that may not actually be one is talked about next given the leaked images of the upcoming Studio Series 86 Voyager Class Sweep. A quick chat about pictures from the Transformers 7 set which show Mirage rounds out the main topics. The episode concludes with a listener question and the recurring Bragging Rights segment.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #279 "Clever Girl Summer"

Clever Girl Summer - Episode 279 of the Twincast / Podcast starts out by looking at the newly announced movie entitled "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts", set to hit theaters next summer with some fan-favorite Beast Wars characters set to hit the big screen. Transformers Collaboritive is next in the chat, and Hasbro spared no expense with the latest reveal of the Transformers x Jurassic Park collaboration featuring Tyrannocon Rex and Autobot JP93. A look at the J Balvin version of Soundwave is next, followed by rumors that have surfaced about a literal Amazon Prime. Rumblings of a possible collaboration with Universal Pictures Dracula fly around the discussion after that. Next up, images of Origin Bumblebee have surfaced showing the toy's look, inspired by the very first episode of The Transformers. Shattered Glass Goldbug makes his official debut for Hasbro's latest Transformers Tuesday event, then Studio Series keeps rolling down the track with new images of Thrust (from the Bumblebee Movie), Jolt and Grindor. This episode wraps with another round of bragging rights.

Rise of the Beasts - Returning to the action and spectacle that first captured moviegoers around the world 14 years ago with the original Transformers, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ‘90s globetrotting adventure and introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons. Directed by Steven Caple Jr. and starring Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, the film arrives in theatres June 24, 2022.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #278 "The Return of Rodimus Prime"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #278 "The Return of Rodimus Prime"

The Return of Rodimus Prime - Episode 278 of the Twincast Podcast starts off with some catching up with former podcast crew member RodimusConvoy13, with no set topic and general talk about recent Transformers toys. Next up, we dive into the latest War for Cybertron Battle Across Time set with earth-mode Sideswipe and a throw back to Beast Wars II, Maximal Skywarp. With the reveal of Kingdom Tracks, we knew it would only be a matter of time until we saw Kingdom Road Rage unofficially revealed, so some very brief discussion occurs about it. Next, we discuss the new images of what looks to be Kingdom Deluxe Class Waspinator. It looks like we will be seeing more in the Premium Finish line with the latest reveal from Takara Tomy Mall, SS-02 Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee film and WFC-02 Megatron. With all that has been revealed recently, the crew discusses their thoughts on different character iterations throughout the years before the episode concludes with the recurring Bragging Rights segment.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #277 "Daring to Be Stupid"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #277 "Daring to Be Stupid"

Daring to Be Stupid - The latest episode of the Twincast / Podcast starts out with talk about the recently revealed upcoming toys for the Generations Studio Series 86 lineup, featuring Slag, Wreck Gar and Gnaw. The Shattered Glass Starscream toy also gets in to the discussion with a light debate about the tooling used to depict the latest version of the character. Generations Selects Artfire takes a quick turn under the microscope before the discussion moves to the latest re-release of the 1986 Transformers movie, which will be on 4k Blu-Ray for the first time. Cyberverse toys are making a return in a less than ideal way with their upcoming roll and combine figures, and the cast wonders if anyone actually wants these, including children. IDW Publishing's announcement of their upcoming King Grimlock series has the crew excited for new storytelling possibilities, so that receives its share of speculation as well. The episode wraps things up with thoughts on toys most Transformers fans hate which are loved by the cast anyhow before a quick round of the recurring Bragging Rights segment.

Dénoument A review of Beast Wars issue 6 Light spoilers This will be a short review because I tend to be more lengthy when I complain than when I praise or am simply having a good time. And that's what this issue was, a good time. Here is some praise for the writing, it was the very first time that I could read the lines with the characters' voices in my head. Which is something I have been unable to do at times in this comic, which is not ideal when your main goal is to give your - Read More

Video Showing Who the Cyberverse Toys are Made For

Posted 1 day ago by william-james88 - 6,889 views

Cyberverse toys don't get big reveals from Hasbro and it's easy to see why, they aren't made with older fans in mind, and those are the people paying attention to reveal videos. So we make sure to give all the info on new Cyberverse toys found at retail or in new listings so that those who care about any Transformers toy can be kept up to date. And it's always odd to see a decry from fans whenever we post about Cyberverse toys. There's already two lines made with fans in mind, so why can't - Read More

Posted 1 day ago by Emerje - 10,648 views

If you want what will likely be the perfect version of Studio Series Ratchet then the Premium Finish line (lines?) has you covered. And if you want an even dirtier version of Siege Starscream for some reason then they've got you covered there, too. PF SS-04 Ratchet right off tones down the day glow green of the original release and gives us a much more accurate yellow-green. And the new paint work on the head pulls out all the right details in his face that the blob of gray paint from the - Read More

Transformers Masterpiece MP-55 Nightbird Shadow Revealed

Posted 2 days ago by william-james88 - 12,295 views

We now have beautiful images of the newly revealed Masterpiece MP-55 Nightbird Shadow. The images show us that while there is retooling on the chest (and of course, head), it still has the same issue as Arcee where the breast plate is set lower and not flush with the side. However, due to Nightbird's collar, it doesn't seem as apparent when looking from the front. It definitely works better on her than Arcee, who's longer collar was not cartoon accurate. One important point to note for those - Read More

We have a gorgeous reveal for you today with Transformers Cyberverse Deluxe Cheetor. While there can always be more paint, the sculpt matches the screen model with great precision. He even has the detail of his beast tail being wrapped around his waist in robot mode. These images, posted on Walmart's website, show that he comes with armour that brings many homages together.

Thanks to our own D-Maximal_Primal, we've been alerted to a post from Autobase Aichi on Facebook.

First Look at Premium Finish SS Ratchet and WFC Starscream

Posted 5 days ago by william-james88 - 27,099 views

If any toy from the Transformers Studio Series line, it was Ratchet. His face wasn't even fully painted. Well, the Premium Finish line will help anyone who wants a better painted Ratchet (and is willing to pay the price). The image below shows both SS Ratchet and WFC (Siege) Starscream from the Premium Finish line. Starscream's improvements aren't as noticeable and he still has weathering similar to the original release. These are not exclusives so any online retailer (including Amazon - Read More

Preorders up for Transformers RED Series Optimus Primal and Reformatting Megatron

Posted 6 days ago by william-james88 - 23,410 views

While we had a good laugh with the reveal of the RED Optimus Primal toy which looks exactly like his Kingdom toy but doesn't transform and at the Reformatting Megatron that has his reformatting grid going the wrong way, there are still fans who expressed interest. And that's great since it shows that Hasbro's offerings, no matter one's personal taste, have an audience. Well, for those who want to make sure they get these toys, Walmart has the preorders up.
