The Overexposure of Bumblebee - The Twincast / Podcast from's 225th episode begins with a discussion of the choices available in the 2020 Transformers Generations War for Cybertron fan vote poll which will decide the Decepticon character to receive a new toy out of the choices of Gnaw, Runamok, Needlenose and Shrapnel. After that, the detailed images of the upcoming Masterpiece MP-47 Hound from Takara Tomy are analyzed, with special attention paid to the potential transformation mechanisms and the included accessories. A look at the upcoming Generations Selects Voyager Class Red Wing comes next along with a history of how the character came to be as an accidental inclusion in the Botcon 2013 companion comic.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #223 "Symmetrical Docking"

Symmetrical Docking - The Twincast / Podcast presents episode 223, which starts out with in-hand impressions of the recently released Transformers Generations: Siege line's Leader Class Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime. In addition to general thoughts about the toy, the cast compares this new release with the original Cybertron and Galaxy Force releases from 15 years ago. This is followed by part two of a special retrospective at Transformers Classics and the Generations line it eventually spawned. This episode picks this up at the end of the initial lineup with the unforgettable Botcon 2007 "Games of Deception" set which gave collectors their only opportunity at the time to complete the set of the primary six Decepticon Seeker jets. After reminiscing on the convention, discussion turns to the Transformers Henkei lineup's initial several months of releases, with special focus on unique import color variants such as Astrotrain and Megatron. The retrospective discussion then turns to Takara exclusives like Wildrider and another Thundercracker before wrapping up at the start of Universe 2.0 and the reveals of toys such as Sunstreaker and Cyclonus. A short discussion of IDW Publishing's Transformers #5 follows before the episode concludes with the recurring Bragging Rights segment.

More Pictures of Masterpiece MP-48 Lio Convoy Show a Whole New level of Takara Magic

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 17,157 views

While many fans liked the reveal of Takara's Masterpiece MP-48 Lio Convoy, the wow factor wasn't there as much as on previous MP reveals (ie BW Megatron, Inferno, Dinobot). The large presence of beast kibble and the lack of knowledge on the character helped make it seem as if there wasn't as much an amelioration on the original toy, at least visually. Of course, that is partly due to his cartoon being much closer to the toys, so a toy looking like the show basically means it looking like the - Read More
