Twincast / Podcast #192 "Transformers vs. Impropriety"

Transformers vs. Impropriety - In this episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "Transformers vs. Impropriety", we join ScottyP, Razorclaw, and xRotorstormx as they dive head first into the new Transformers Generations Power of the Primes Leader Class figures hitting store shelves everywhere. The cast discusses the high and low points of both Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime in their newest toy incarnations. After that the show includes a special roundtable discussion about "Classics" figures, those toys that serve to represent updated versions of Generation 1 Transformers. The discussion focuses on whether the very latest versions of characters in the recent Generations lineups could lead collectors to a more-or-less complete "cast" of the vintage characters. Continuing on with Power of the Primes, Machinima has started announcing the voice acting cast of the upcoming cartoon. With the impressive list of names being unveiled, is this enough to grab the attention of those who have dismissed the series as a whole? The crew then moves on to the newly revealed movie masterpiece Ironhide and discusses how you can bring home your very own GMC Topkick. Next up, ScottyP leads the discussion about the new, poorly received Transformers vs Visionaries comic and the plot twist that has Transformers fans canceling orders for future issues. MP Sunstreaker is making its way into collectors hands and the reaction so far has been stellar, and the show wraps up after the Masterpiece figure talk with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment. Year in Review 2017 Year in Review 2017

2017 Year in Review - Welcome to 2018, Seibertronians! You know what time of the year this is, and you've been patient long enough now. We tickled your appetite with our #Transformersmas challenge round-up just the other of course, but we have even bigger treats ahead. I'll start by citing our site founder, creator, owner, and gallery supplier (more on that later!) Seibertron when he wrote, in our end of year message here, that... ...2018 will mark the 34th anniversary of the Transformers brand, the 22nd anniversary of Beast Wars, the 13th anniversary of Armada, the 11th anniversary of Bayverse, and the 18th anniversary of Before we reach the ticking of legal voting age (in some places) for our very own community, I think it's definitely time to look back at what has just gone past in 2017, a year with a movie and a series, and a year with endings and continuations, be it movies, shows, comics or toylines, and a year of late beginnings for toys, as Power of the Primes snuck in towards the last two months. So it's time, once more, to make it... A Year in Review - Transformers 2017

Top 5 Best Samurai Themed Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Samurai Themed Transformers Toys

Best Samurai Transformers Toys - I realized that I lost track of time at some point (having a new baby will do that to you) and on week was skipped in December. So to remedy that, you are getting this new list just one week after the previous one about the best Ravage toys (where most people surprisingly agreed that the Masterpiece version was not the best). But enough of older lists, on with the new. 2018 will be giving us a new take on the the most popular Pretender figure of all time, Bludgeon, and in light of this I chose to look back on the best Samurai themed toys (since a list of just Bludgeon would not leave us with much).
