Twincast / Podcast Episode #208 "Everyone Gets Counterpunched"

Everyone Gets Counterpunched - Episode 208 of the Twincast Podcast is hosted by Scotty P and Counterpunch as "Everyone Gets Counterpunched". The episode kicks off with discussions of some recent Transformers toy releases, including the Cyberverse Ultra Class Shockwave. Additionally, the Generations Power of the Primes Deluxe Class Punch / Counterpunch figure is discussed in detail, including the minor assembly error present and how collectors can quickly and easily improve their toy by making one small fix. Takara Tomy's reveal of the upcoming Encore Big Blue Convoy leads into a short lauding of Bumblebee Movie toys being available for preorder on Hasbro Toy Shop, as well as the reveal of MPM-7 Masterpiece Bumblebee based on his rendition in the upcoming Bumblebee Movie. After this, the show's feature topic begins with a retrospective look at the history of Transformers Masterpiece toys from both Takara Tomy and Hasbro. Beginning back in 2003 with MP-1 Convoy, the podcasters go through each era of Masterpiece toy history and relate their own experiences with those perceived from the wider collecting audience. Through the early releases, MP-10 Convoy version 2 and the "Super Car" era, into the modern era of Sunbow-G1 inspired designs, Beast Wars, and Movie Masterpiece, this discussion gives a wide overview of the line and some historical perspective for any Masterpiece collector.

Through The Fargate - Episode 207 of the Twincast Podcast, "Through The Fargate", features the duo of Scotty P and Megatronus. The show begins with their impressions of the recently premiered Transformers: Cyberverse cartoon series, airing on Cartoon Network and available through various on-demand platforms. After that, comics discussion takes over for the bulk of the episode, with three releases from IDW Publishing having been published in the past week. Starting with Lost Light #23, they analyze the major revelations present and speculate on how the remaining two issues of the series could potentially proceed. After that, an in-depth look at Unicron #4 occurs, with the hosts looking at the numerous moments throughout the book and the emotional impact - or lack thereof - delivered by these. A quick chat about Optimus Prime #23 rounds out comic discussions. After that, a look over the latest Studio Series figures revealed at Fan Expo 2018 features discussion of the latest five deluxe class figures inspired by various scenes from the Transformers live-action films. Once brief thoughts of the recently released Masterpiece MP-34S Shadow Panther figure from Takara Tomy are given, the episode concludes with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment.

After this, the episode enters a lengthy discussion of the most recently released Transformers comics from IDW Publishing, as they proceed on their way through the universe-ending "Unicron" event. The third issue of the namesake arc is analyzed thoroughly, along with the directly connected Optimus Prime #22. After dissecting the cameos and implications of that chapter, the crew engages with Lost Light #22 as well. Major spoilers are present as the team gives their impressions of the major reveals finally showcased within that comic's pages. Once comics talk wraps, a look at the Transformers Masterpiece series is at hand, with many cast members providing thoughts about the newly released Masterpiece Dinobot toy from the Beast Wars series. "Generation One" reveals from Takara Tomy at Wonderfest 2018 are on the table next, with early thoughts and speculation on Hound and the third version of a Masterpiece Optimus Prime.
