Twincast / Podcast #190 "Spacebridge Sunset Boulevard"

Spacebridge Sunset Boulevard - Join the latest Twincast / Podcast Mainframes episode for an in depth review and analysis of Lost Light #11: "The Plotter's Club (Part 2): Filling in the Blanks". We dive deep into Getaway's personality, character flaws, and ambitions as we attempt to conclude why he's doing what he's doing, and how he is justifying the actions he's taken and what his end goals really are. We also look at other crew members including Atomizer, Perceptor, Riptide, and Thunderclash, and determine their role in the mutiny and analyze their reactions to Getaway's increasingly unhinged behavior. Additionally, we work the history of Getaway's time before and on board the Lost Light, and how characters such as Tyrest, Froid, and Sunder may or may not be preying on his tendencies. In addition, we slot the issue into a modern, real world context and examine Getaway's actions through the lens of modern authoritarianism and information manipulation. Is he a parallel to one or more modern political figures? Lastly, we take a look how many of the threads in Lost Light may be coming together to see Rodimus and company's return to the ship and a preparation for the upcoming Unicron cross over event.

Twincast / Podcast #189 "S.O.S. Dinobots"

S.O.S. Dinobots - In the latest episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "S.O.S. Dinobots," podcast crew regulars ScottyP, Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, and xRotorstormx begin by describing their favorite figures from Wave 1 of the Power of the Primes toy line. Dreadwind tops the charts. The conversation moves towards the controversy around Power of the Primes Jazz, and the 'MAGA' inscription tampo-ed on his side in Cybertronian letters. Less controversial is the Street Fighter II crossover, featuring some fan favorite video game characters in Titans Return bodies. The episode takes a turn towards the Masterpiece line. First, a run down of MP-12+ Sideswipe details the portions of the deco that have changed since the original release. Second, the crew discusses the now fully revealed Masterpiece Dinobot, the virtues and accuracy of its robot and alt-modes, as well as the figure's eye-popping price tag. Third is Movie Masterpiece Barricade, with the accuracy of the figure's modes called into question in addition to some reminiscing about the 2007 movie experience and the fandom's collective recall of those now iconic character designs. The crew moves on to comics talk with Optimus Prime 13, and the convergence of loose, unresolved threads from the last couple years of IDW storytelling, including the fate of the Throttlebots, the location of the Dinobots, the re-emergence of Bludgeon and Prowl, and continued Unicron speculation. The episode ends with descriptions of our holiday wish lists, as well as Black Friday bragging rights.
Review of IDW Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #5 [Final Issue]

Review of IDW Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #5 [Final Issue]

ROM vs TF FINAL - We reach, with issue five, the last part of this mini-series uniting both Transformers and the Solstar Order of Rom and the other Knights. And I'll admit, I'm both glad the conclusion was as satisfying as it was, and a little saddened that the story is entirely over as far as we're concerned in the current IDWverse. Though it's true, repercussions retroactively are felt through Revolution and First Strike, and we have some continuations elsewhere too, Stardrive's story is currently done with. Read more ...

In hand Images of Transformers Power of the Primes Optimus Prime, Rodimus, Starscream and Grimlock

POTP Wave 1 - While it seems we know so much about the upcoming Transformers Power of the Primes toys, there is one part we know very little of: how their backs look like. While Leader Optimus Prime may look like MP10 from the front, no one knows how he looks like from the back? Well, a Transformers hands on event was held in Hong Kong and thanks to several posts on HK-TF 變形金剛香港網盟 and Hobbymizer Hong Kong Discuss, we now know that it looks like and ... it's not like MP10. We also have some great shots of Voyager Grimlock's back which has also not fully been revealed yet, along with more torso shots of Voyager Starscream. We also get our first shot of Starscream fully combined. There are also several images showing where the combiner heads are hidden which can make for some very wacky poses. Plus, we see the interchangeable Titan/Prime Master gimmick with the Matrix that comes with the leaders in full force and used in fun ways.
Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot Fully Revealed

Takara Tomy Transformers Masterpiece MP-41 Dinobot Fully Revealed

Dinobot Revealed - Here it is, the biggest news of the year, the full reveal of Takara's Transformers Beast Wars Masterpiece MP 41 Dinobot. The Japanese preorders are now out so we know the full MSRP for those ordering directly from Takara and it is 28,000 Yen. This is exactly what was initially reported. Of course, those wishing to import it themselves may be privy to retailer specific discounts however as you will see below, this is a big boy, one of the biggest Masterpiece figures yet, and the shipping for such a box could make the total cost a wash compared to what a local collectible stores are selling him at.
