Twincast / Podcast Episode #288 "Filler Episode"

Filler Episode - The Twincast Podcast presents its 288th episode which starts out with reaction to the news of the year long delay for the next installment in the Transformers live action film franchise, Rise of the Beasts. Along with this topic, the cast considers what imaginary "filler" toy-lines they would like to see if the movie's accompanying toys happen to get delayed alongside the film's release. Actually planned toys are the next topic on the slate, with just-revealed Studio Series toys from the Bumblebee movie such as Deluxe Class Brawn and Voyager Class Soundwave creating excitement. The Generations: War for Cybertron: Kingdom Blaster also comes up, with inevitable thoughts about an obvious repaint inspired by the name of this very podcast. Impressions of the first 45 minute long Cyberverse special released last week on Hasbro's Youtube channel comes next, followed by brief lamentations on IDW's ongoing Transformers run inspired by a listener's question. The episode concludes with the regularly occurring Bragging Rights segment.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #287 "Pulse Con 2021"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #287 "Pulse Con 2021"

Pulse Con 2021 - Episode 287 of the Twincast Podcast covers all the latest Transformers Generations products revealed at the just-concluded Hasbro Pulsecon 2021. A look at the Voyager Class "Prime" Bulkhead starts things out, along with thoughts on how appropriate this new toy's design is for the character. The discussion moves along after that to provide thoughts on the remainder of the products from the upcoming Generations Legacy toy line that were shown off, including a new version of G2's Laser Optimus Prime and Deluxe Class entries Skids, Prime Arcee, Kickback and the first part of the new version of the Menasor combiner, Dragstrip. Opinions are provided about the price point of the Pulsecon exclusive Ravage set, then the show moves on to answer listener questions about recent Hasbro product reveal timing and all-time favorite repaints. The episode concludes as usual with the Bragging Rights segment.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #286 "They Might Be Giants"

They Might Be Giants - On Episode 286 of the Twincast Podcast the topics begin yet again with a final status update on the Victory Saber HasLab crowdfunding project, with a check-in on its progress towards stretch goals now that it has surpassed its initial funding goals. Takara Tomy's just revealed MPG-01 Shouki, the first part of its Masterpiece Raiden combiner, has been revealed so the crew talks about that next. A leaked image from a retailer presentation has confirmed the existence of next year's Titan Class entry for the Generations: Legacy lineup, which is none other than Cybertron Metroplex. Opinions split there before the discussion moves on to learn about Hasbro and Takara's listings for Tenseg figure stands. Catch-up chat on the Amazon Exclusive Kingdom Golden Disk collection follows with thoughts provided on all the entries from Ranger to Jackpot to Terrorsaur and more. The episode concludes with the recurring Bragging Rights segment.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #285 "Monster Mashup"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #285 "Monster Mashup"

Monster Mashup - On Episode 285 of the Twincast Podcast, things begin with a status update on the latest HasLab crowdfunding project for Victory Saber as well as a potential tier bonus that was mistakenly unveiled. Next, we dive into a large amount of leaks that have surfaced recently, ranging from an exclusive Velocitron line to new vintage Beast Wars reissues, to more R.E.D figures and even more. Target's latest Red Card Exclusive Road Rage was unveiled as well as Draculus, a new Transformers collaboration with Universal Monsters, and we give our impressions on these new toys. We continue our "Classics Retrospective" with a look back on 2011 and some of 2012's releases. Reveal the Shield and the initial Generations line started to wrap up and Japan's United line was gearing up. Exclusives like the Targetmaster Microns, Million Publishing Stepper and clear three-packs were on our radars and Botcon 2012 gave us a small sample of Classic goodness. Closing out this episode is another round of bragging rights.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #284 "Welcome to 2010"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #284 "Welcome to 2010"

Welcome to 2010 - Episode 284 of the Twincast Podcast begins with a discussion on the new HasLab Victory Saber crowdfunding campaign, and the future of Japanese anime characters in the U.S. toyline. We move to the freshly revealed Studio Series Deluxe Class N.E.S.T. Bumblebee, and some comical packaging spelling errors. Next is the similarly revealed - or perhaps leaked - Kingdom Deluxe Class Slammer, which will perfectly compliment your Titan Metroplex. We tackle a pair of listener questions asking about the next use of the Titan Ark figure, and if the Twincast crew has personal examples of the softer, plasticizer-laden bits of our Transformers damaging or imprinting on harder plastic pieces, which we do. Then, after a long hiatus, the show continues its Classics Retrospective segment, where we examine the Transformers brand machinations of 2010, which include: the Classics and Universe 2.0 lines rebranding into Generations, the War for Cybertron video game toys, shiny metallic Takara Transformers United releases of those toys, Reveal the Shield, Power Core Combiners, Takara's Welcome to 2010 line, and so much more. We wrap up the episode with a round of bragging rights where the cast discusses what they've acquired since the last show.

Balvintron video review.

Posted 2 days ago by -Kanrabat- - 12,699 views

Balvitron has begun being shipped left and right but not many reviewers took an interest in this odd collab. Luckily for us, Youtuber That Toy Guy made a video review of the thing for us all to enjoy. This oddity is a set of repaints of G1 Soundwave, Buzzsaw/Lazerbeak, and Ravage. Soundwave is in eye-searing yellow with pre-applied stickers all over. Unfortunately, the quality of the stickers seems to be basic "Power of the Prime" style. BuzzBeak is in white with "Energy" written in Spanish - Read More

In Hand Images of Masterpiece Skids and Reboost along with Packaging

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 14,120 views

There are several images popping up on Baidu for the upcoming Masterpiece 53 Skids and 54 Reboost. These give us our first look at the packaging. This makes sense as these toys are shipping out from Japanese retailers to be in people's hands by the end of the week. Oddly enough, some US based retailers getting the version distributed by Hasbro (with the extra Hasbro exclusive black box packaging) are pushing the date back. In any case, here are the images, - Read More

WFC Kingdom Golden Disk Jackpot pictures review.

From, Canadians are already receiving their Golden Disk Jackpot. I got mine as well so I can provide you with this pictures review. The packaging come in a brown shipping box. The box itself is in full colors, but is very thin. The tray and tie-wraps binding the toys are all cardboard. Zero plastics. All that paper and cardboard except for the instructions will find themselves in the recycling bin. As stated in the previous news report, This version of Jackpot have a new - Read More

Hasbro Reminds us that Draculus is Out Soon at Target Where he is Street Dated

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 19,088 views

Hasbro posted on Instragram, reminding people that Draculus comes out November 28. He has already been found at Target, but since he is street dated for the 28th, he can't be purchased. Still, good to know stores already have stock for when it's ready to be sold. So good, he’s making a second appearance! Now that Halloween is behind him, Draculus is heading to shelves (as well as online) on November 28th. Parents check those at Target collector spot endcaps or check out our stories to - Read More

New Images of Studio Series Bumblebee Movie Soundwave

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 23,033 views

We have several images of the new Studio Series Bumblebee Movie Soundwave. The photos come from various places including Optimusprimeprodctions on Instagram. We see the box which indicates that this figure is past the production stage and in the hand of distributors already (or at least ready for distribution). The box also has a double backdrop, it seems since we have a backdrop soundwave is attached to (but cannot stand on) along with an additional backdrop in the box. We get to see that - Read More

Transformers Golden Disk Jackpot has Shipped from with Misaligned Head Issue

Posted 5 days ago by william-james88 - 18,984 views

While he wasn't due out for a while, has shipped their orders for the Transformers Kingdom Golden Disk Jackpot set. It is unclear if this has any impact on what will do, since this toy is not due out till march. However, has been very bad with preorders for the past year (a lot of Canadians lost out on the Coneheads) and this may simply be them getting a shipment and sending it out asap before it gets lost and eventually sold/left to another distributor (which is - Read More
