Twincast / Podcast #184 "The Search For Alpha Trion"

The Search For Alpha Trion - In the latest episode of the Twincast Podcast, "The Search For Alpha Trion", the latest Transformers Generations Power of the Primes products revealed at Hascon 2017 are analyzed in depth. This starts out with a look at the upcoming new versions of the popular Dinobots; Grimlock, Slag, Snarl, Swoop, Sludge, and newcomer Slash. The cast discusses their initial impressions of each figure, and also debates the merits of the combining feature as it relates to this team of characters. The Leader Class Evolution Orion Pax to Optimus Prime toy is talked about next, with a focus on the "evolution" feature allowing the smaller Pax robot to transform into the larger Prime. Revealed products from the Saturday night Hasbro VIP and Hall of Fame Dinner were also on the agenda, including Leader Class Optimus Primal, Voyager Class Hun-Grrr, and Deluxe Class entries Rippersnapper and Moonracer. IDW Publishing's upcoming plans for Unicron in their Transformers and Hasbro Universe comics is also discussed, with recent releases such as First Strike, Optimus Prime #10, and Lost Light #9 having quick analysis after that. The episode wraps up with a listener question about the potential for reissues of toys from the Transformers: Animated series as it approaches its tenth anniversary.

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 25,467 views

Suppliers pulled back in part because the cost to insure their shipments to cash-strapped Toys “R” Us has become too expensive, said the people. Vendors - Read More
