Losing the Anchor: My Place in the Transformers Fandom

Losing the Anchor: My Place in the Transformers Fandom

Editorial - This piece is happening due to a conversation I've had with my partner, on at least three separate occasions, and following several attempts at 'fitting in' with a number of Transformers fan groups you might encounter across the internet. It's also, in some ways, an organic step in a longer conversation being had in the fandom since collecting was a thing, as shown by forum threads like those by Rodimus Prime, Burn, and myself among many others, or articles such as Maz's piece on burnout. Those, however, tend to revolve predominantly around toys. Read more ...
Top 5 Best Transformers Triplechanger Toys

Top 5 Best Transformers Triplechanger Toys

Best Triplechangers - Now a toy that changes from one form to the next is pretty awesome, as you can all attest to. But what about a toy that can change into 3 different forms? Transformers Triplechangers have been around since the G1 era and still thrive today. They are extremely tricky toys to pull off and thus there are very few amazing ones out there. Below are the ones that I feel pulled it off best across different eras and though they all have flaws, they are still pretty remarkable when you think of all the designing and engineering involved. Now all I required for something to be considered a triple changer to me were 3 distinct modes with 3 distinct play patterns.

Twincast / Podcast #193 "Eulogy"

Eulogy - In this episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "Eulogy", discussions kick off with a look at the latest issue of the ongoing Optimus Prime series from IDW Publishing. With Transformers comic books beginning to reach some kind of climax, analysis of the characters and their actions, movements, and motivations is in store. After that, the recently announced Beast Wars Masterpiece Shadow Panther from Takara Tomy is the topic of conversation. From there, personal anecdotes about our recent in store experiences at Toys R Us frame the discussion surrounding their announcement of the closing of up to 180 stores in the United States throughout 2018. This episode's special topic comes next, with a recent sad life event for Seibertron yielding an introspective topic about our families and the role in which both parents and other family members have had in shaping how the Transformers hobby continues to affect our lives. Two listener questions are answered after that, with the group addressing one question about fiction and the other about toys. The episode concludes with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment which is also full of some general chat and banter about Transformers.
