Twincast / Podcast Episode #229 "Galaxies"

Galaxies - On the very special 229th episode of the Twincast Podcast, the team sits down with writer Tyler Bleszinski and artist Livio Ramondelli, the creative tandem behind the initial "Constructicons Rising" storyline in the upcoming Transformers: Galaxies series from IDW Publishing. A look into all aspects of this forthcoming comic book awaits, beginning with discussion of the approach behind the characters of the Constructicons and how that informs their design. After a brief look into what Devastator will mean for the book, a chat about the production of the comic takes focus as the creators share a glimpse into the process that makes the story come to life. Some teases follow in regards to some other characters that may be present in the story as well as how it relates to the ongoing monthly "Transformers" series also being released by IDW. Our guests also discuss working with Hasbro and their editors before talking about how the recent clean slate provided by a total relaunch of Transformers comics helps allow freedom in what they can do with this story arc. Bleszinski and Ramondelli help us answer a listener question about what other combiner teams would be interesting to write about, with a certain predatory king being a popular selection. The episode winds down with a discussion of favorite toys and moments from the past featuring the Constructicons and Devastator before concluding with a last look into the upcoming comic book and how to order it.
IDW Transformers '84 #0 Review

IDW Transformers '84 #0 Review

Transformers Marvel is Back! - This is a review that must start out with a confession. When I initially saw the announcement of this one-shot prequel to the original Marvel comics Transformers series, all I could think of was Regeneration One and how I just do not want more of that continuity at this point. The story is told, the ink is dry, let's all move on because re-visiting it didn't work and I want off Mr. Furman's wild ride. The continuity itself is already a mess with the UK continuity, G2, the aforementioned Regen One and even the old Universe books all picking up various threads in various ways that conflict and they probably won't use Geoff Senior so what's the point? "No one wanted this", I thought. After reading the book, I'm left with this second confession: I was completely wrong.
Top 5 Best Transformers Armada Toys

Top 5 Best Transformers Armada Toys

Best Transformers Armada Toys - This is the line that saw the advancements in articulation and complexity of the Beast Era and went "na, were good, lets go back to late G1 articulation with poor proportions and obtrusive gimmicks". And then the same thing happened again 15 years later for the Cyberverse line. You see, Transformers are cyclical that way. But it's not to say there isn't a lot to love in Armada and this list will go through some toys that I feel anyone should have in their collection as a keepsake of this era. Plus with all the hubub over the new Unicron, it was fun to revisit the line that gave us our first Unicron toy.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #228 "Afterthoughts"

Afterthoughts - Episode 228 of the Twincast Podcast starts with a re-visit of Haslab’s War for Cybertron: Siege Unicron project, with a look at the number of backers at the time of recording and speculation on the project's chances of being successfully crowd-funded by Transformers fans. After this, the Transformers movie-verse provides several topics starting with an in hand account of Studio Series Voyager Class Long Haul. Masterpiece MPM-8 Movie Megatron is front and center for discussion next, with analysis of the toy's looks and transformation plus comparisons to other Movie Masterpiece series releases. Other new Studio Series reveals including Deluxe Class Revenge of the Fallen Arcee, Chromia, and Elita-1, The Last Night World War II Hot Rod, and Dark of the Moon Soundwave also get early reactions from the cast. With the new in-color pictures released and their preorder listing on Hasbro Pulse, the Seacons Turtler and Gulf soon forthcoming from the Generations Selects series are the next toys to get a look. The discussion continues out of toy related topics and into other territory, including the Transformers card game’s Trypticon and friends as the first reveals for the next wave of products in the TCG's War for Cybertron: Siege II expansion. The cast ponders how bold the "Bold New Era" in Transformers comics really is after the initial 10 issues, with some cast still patient and others less enthused about this new direction. After bringing back hope for comics with the upcoming Transformers: Galaxies, a quick reading of Optimus Prime's Tech Spec from the 1995 Grandreams Generation 2 Annual leads in to the recurring bragging rights segment to end the episode.
Top 5 Best Non Screen/Show Accurate Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Non Screen/Show Accurate Transformers Toys

Best Non-Show Accurate - The idea of owning a part of what you are a fan of is integral to the idea of collecting action figures. And of course, it is important for the object representing what we love to be as faithful as possible. I do remember being disappointed as a kid with the mutant heads on Beast Wars toys so much that I would remove them on Megatron and Dinobot, so even for kids accuracy to a show or movie can be important. However, there are some toys which are still pretty awesome even though they may have major inaccuracies and we will look at the best examples now.

New Images of Latest Studio Series Reveals Give a Good Look at Where Scavenger's Treads Go

Posted 9 minutes ago by william-james88 - 128 views

NEW! Aside from when, where, and how much, the main question asked after Hasbro revealed their latest Transformers Studio Series toys at Fan Expo 2019 was "where do Scavenger's threads go in alt mode?".

Haslab Unicron at 3,000 Backers ... needs our help to get the final 5,000

Posted 1 day ago by D-Maximal_Primal - 9,378 views

We love you 3,000. Today, August 24, 2019, we are officially 3,000 backers into the Haslab Unicron project. Which is a good sign considering the large price point! But sadly, that means that we are only 37.5% of the way to Unicron, and we only have 7 days left of the fundraising period. So while 3,000 is a good number, we are still a long ways away from the goal. Now mind you, we will tell you that the 3,000 number is solely Hasbro Pulse pre-orders, so we are definitely a lot closer - Read More
