Twincast / Podcast Episode #236 "Tangled Web"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #236 "Tangled Web"

Tangled Web - Episode 236 of the Twincast / Podcast begins with in-hand impressions and analysis of the latest Transformers Masterpiece figure from the Beast Wars series, MP-46 Black Widow, better known as Blackarachnia to Western Transformers fans. More Masterpiece discussion follows with the simultaneously released MP-45, a second version of Bumblebee's "Generation 1" design. The talk continues on with speculation about a possible Masterpiece combiner toy after Takara Tomy's announcement of a new project for the trainbot combiner Raiden, with the cast imagining what potential product could be the result of this still nebulous project. Toy discussions then shift to the Generations Siege lineup with Leader Class Astrotrain hitting store shelves. After that, a brief discussion of voting on the 2019 Transformers Hall of Fame leads into a topic about Beast Wars. Specifically, the cast shares what animals not used in the original 1990s series they would like to see if a new line-up of toys featuring beastial Transformers was created. The episode concludes with a brief chat about IDW Publishing's Transformers Galaxies #3 as well as a surprisingly short round of the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #235 "Pre-Holidaze"

Pre-Holidaze - In episode 235 of the Twincast Podcast, the talk begins with commentary on Jim Sorenson’s new book Transformers: A Visual History, which brings new artwork along with a deluxe packaging option for Transformers fans to digest. After that, the cast takes time to address the rumors about potential toy releases in the upcoming Generations War for Cybertron: Earthrise lineup and which seem likelier to be true than others. With War for Cybertron: Siege winding down, its blacklight codes have also come to an end with a map of Cybertron as the final bonus content they've delivered. A brief chat about some Chinese mythology comes next with a look at some upcoming Transformers Nezha toys. With Black Friday just around the corner the crew is keeping their eyes out for some deep discounts on particular items, so they share what they're hoping to buy next week. The episode ends with a round of bragging rights that includes some finds from overseas.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #234 "Hell in a Cel"

Hell in a Cel - Episode 234 of the Twincast Podcast begins with a look back at TFcon 2019 from the perspective of a first time attendee. After that, the regular show format begins with follow-up from that including the typical "Bragging Rights" ending segment happening first, with each member of the cast sharing their acquisitions at the convention and beyond. Topics turn to the recently released retailer exclusive products from the Generations: War for Cybertron Siege lineup, with the Walgreens exclusive Ratchet and Walmart exclusive 35th anniversary figures such as Soundblaster, Bluestreak and the "Animation" deco Voyager Class Optimus Prime and Megatron. The group discusses the "cel-shaded" look of the figures and whether they would want to see more of this type of paint job on Transformers toys in the future. The chat turns to another unusual exclusive repaint in the Bump of Chicken Sonic Bumblebee before moving on to take a look at the newest Botbots and Cyberverse toys headed to store shelves in the very near future, if not there already. The show concludes with a lighthearted read through of Blaze's Tech Specs and biography entry from the Grandreams Transformers Generation 2 Annual.
Top 5 Best Beast Wars Toys of Non Show Characters

Top 5 Best Beast Wars Toys of Non Show Characters

Best Non-Show Beast Wars Toys - We don't see it as much these days, but in the 80s and 90s, the characters you saw on a Transformers show were just a subset of all the toys available. Business-wise, the shows served to advertise the toyline that you would then discover and the toys would have their own appeal based on how they looked. Growing up with Beast Wars, I remember pouring over the back of the cards and boxes of the few I got to see all the other wonderful toys of characters I did not know. And that's what we are looking back on today, the toys from the Beast era of characters that never appeared on the North American CG Beast Wars (Beasties) show.
