Twincast / Podcast Episode #215 "New Year, New Toys"

New Year, New Toys - On episode #215 of the Twincast / Podcast, regular cast members and guest stars talk about some of the newly released and upcoming Transformers toys of 2019. The lengthy list includes Siege Leaders Shockwave and Ultra Magnus, Movie Masterpiece MPM-6 Ironhide, Studio Series Voyagers 38 Bumblebee Movie Optimus Prime and 31 Revenge of the Fallen Battle Damaged Megatron, and the Walmart Exclusive G1 reissues of Soundwave, Gears, and Warpath. A short mention of Energon Igniters Soundwave is invited as well. The conversation moves to answering a listener question about distribution of Transformers products at retail stores in 2018 as opposed to previous years. After that, speculation about the prospect of an animated Transformers film focused around Beast Wars, which was hinted at by Bumblebee Movie producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, takes the spotlight. The Twincast then discusses the more substantial and imminent arrival of the IDW comics reboot, including the initial news, plot and character details revealed in the solicitations, and our thoughts on some of the promotional cover artwork released thus far. We wrap up the episode with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment, where cast members discuss what they've acquired since the last episode.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #214 "Bumblebee"

Bumblebee - The Transformers live action film franchise's latest installment is out, with Bumblebee hitting theaters last week. The Twincast / Podcast brings you its review of the movie, with one of its regular podcasters Jon Bailey bringing his insights after providing the voice acting talents for Soundwave and Shockwave in the film. Along with this insider perspective, the cast discusses each significant part of the movie itself, beginning with the "Generation One" inspired opening scene on Cybertron. The new human and robot characters presented in the Earth based adventures are also reflected on, with the cast agreeing that this latest movie is a measurable tonal departure from the approach of previous films in the franchise. After talking through the entire movie's plot and characterizations, speculation about what comes next for Travis Knight, Michael Bay, and the Transformers live action movies comes next. A quick chat about the movie's tie-in toyline follows, and the show concludes with a quick round of holiday season bragging rights about the cast's Transformers related gifts.

But there was some stellar storytelling here, the best these characters ever got and I will go through the 5 best stories from this 13 year run that any Transformers fan should check out asap.
