Twincast / Podcast Episode #202 "ReChrome 2: CyGate"

ReChrome2: CyGate - Episode 202 of the Twincast/Podcast, "ReChrome2: CyGate", begins with analysis of the available images showing the upcoming third version of Masterpiece Optimus Prime (or Convoy) from Takara Tomy. After these considerations, speculation as to what Transformers toys may be available as special San Diego Comic Con 2018 exclusives ensues, including some guesses as to where fans may expect to see upcoming rumored releases such as Repugnus, Blast Off, and Counterpunch. Other exclusives are discussed next in the form of upcoming Takara Tomy Mall "Golden Lagoon" recolors. Next, the Transformers Hall of Fame gets a visit as much of the cast casts their ballots for what characters and which toy they feel deserves the annual Hall of Fame treatment from Hasbro. After a quick monologue on Power of the Primes Abominus, discussion turns to comics talk and the recent news from IDW Publishing that a short crossover series with the Star Trek franchise is on the way. Lost Light then takes over the conversation with a look at the recently released 18th issue, the upcoming 19th, and other notable recent events from the series. The show ends with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment where each cast member shares their recent Transformers product acquisitions.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #201 "Sweet Boy"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #201 "Sweet Boy"

Sweet Boy - In this 201st episode of the Twincast/Podcast, "Sweet Boy", the discussion begins with the trailer for the Bumblebee movie and the positive reactions from it. The cast talks about the apparent tone of the upcoming film based on the small sampling available, comparing and contrasting it to other Transformers live action films. The Transformers episode of the Netflix Original Series "The Toys That Made Us" has been released, and the crew shares their thoughts on the episode and the series in general. In toy news, Masterpiece MP-43 Beast Wars Megatron has been revealed and is on display at Tokyo Toy Show, and the size of the figure is now apparent sparking more conversation. Other recent Masterpiece reveals are discussed covering Police Type Sunstreaker, Toy Deco Megatron, and Toy Deco Shockwave. After that, story, art, characters, and thoughts from the final chapter of IDW's Wreckers saga are shared in a chat about the recently released Requiem of the Wreckers. After the crew tells what Hasbro or Takara reissues of G1 figures they'd like to see, the episode finishes with a quick round of the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment.
Why The Transformers Bumblebee Movie Will (Probably) Succeed #BumblebeeMovie

Why The Transformers Bumblebee Movie Will (Probably) Succeed #BumblebeeMovie

Why Bumblebee Might Succeed - The hype, if you are to believe the various parts of the internet where the Transformers fandom gathers, is real. Twitter is abuzz, discussion boards are mostly positive - which is a welcome change from the regular Michael Bay / Paramount inspired conversations - Instagram is screenshotting the trailer like there will be no movie, and people within the franchise are also fawning over The Sweet Boy. And rightly so. With that general context in mind, then, why not join me in speculating about the reasons why this last but first venture (if you are to believe the Paramount direction) outside of the currently beaten path for the Transformers live action movie universe, may in fact be its most successful as a media franchise - in 5 bullet points.

Posted 4 days ago by william-james88 - 17,793 views

The Tokyo Toy show gave fans their first look at the newst version of a Masterpiece Optimus Prime, which we will call MP Optimus 3.0 until we get an official number or labelling. However, photos were not allowed so the only photo we got was grainy and not the ideal first look at a figure that will probably cost fans a pretty penny. Luckily, MP Optimus Prime 3.0 features in the latest Figure King magazine and while we do not have high quality scans yet, we do have a much better look at the toy - Read More
