Twincast / Podcast #172 "Ready For Launch"

Ready For Launch - The Twincast / Podcast's latest episode features ScottyP, xRotorstormx and RodimusConvoy13 discussing the latest Transformers: The Last Knight trailer, Nemesis. Conversation then moves to a look at The Last Knight Movie Toy Launch Day, which is Monday, April 24th. After that, Scotty discusses his thoughts about the amazing engineering behind the latest masterpiece figure, MP-36 Megatron. Next, the cast discusses the color change that Takara just went through on the upcoming Legends series Targetmaster Kup. The season 3 trailer for Robots in Disguise was released and some brief discussion follows on the direction of the show and toy line. We follow up with a listener question about whether or not characters that were "similar" in G1, like Ironhide and Ratchet continue to be redecos/similar molds in the modern toy lines. IDW unveiled the newest Hasbro property cross over "First Strike" and Hasbro teased their new "Reveal Your Shield" Transformers Celebration shortly before the recording, and the cast takes some early looks at these events. We close out the night with a new segment called Blast from the Past as we tell you about some older toys that we've rediscovered recently.

Top 10 Best Transformers Characters From Generation One

Best G1 Characters - This isn't a badass meter, but instead, it is a list about the characters from this era that inspire you or haunt you as you go about your day. The G1 title doesn't necessarily refer to the show (although it is usually a big factor) but instead to the era and the prominent characters stemming from it. We will keep specific modern day interpretations (like IDW) for another time though. Let me know which G1 characters you like best once you have finished reading the list.

Twincast / Podcast #171 "Team Knightmare"

Team Knightmare - The Twincast Podcast's latest episode catches up with the latest news and notes about the upcoming next chapter in the Transformers live action movie franchise, The Last Knight, from Paramount and Director Michael Bay. Impressions of the footage shown at this past week's IMAX Fan Event preview are discussed, along with the special trip's owner got to experience. After a long look at these topics, some of the upcoming toys to support the film are discussed, including the recently seen Voyager Class Nitro, Deluxe Class Skullitron, and the speculative look at Cogman. Kabam's mobile platform fighting video game, Transformers: Forged to Fight has launched, and the cast members that have already started on this latest adventure fill in listeners on what they can expect from this game. A brief discussion about the IDW Hasbro Universe then occurs, including reasons why Transformers fans can enjoy those comics on their own without needing to necessarily follow other Hasbro property series. The show wraps up with a long 'freestyle' segment, where cast members can bring up any topic they choose. This ends up including things ranging from the recently released Masterpiece MP-36 Megatron from Takara Tomy, and even 3D printing and how that could affect the future of the Transformers brand.
