Since you guys probably need something to talk about for the podcast I figured I would give you something.

My first question is do you think that despite San Diego Comic Con cancellation that we will still see the TF figure Reveals? (I'm Assuming we will)

And my second questions is how would you guys rate the distribution of Siege locally and beyond. While I mostly buy online. I also enjoy looking at and getting Transformers from my local Walmart which is really the only store close to me that sell Transformers. For deluxes they only ever got wave two where o so many Chromias stuck around and some Prowls. For Voyagers they got everything up to Thundercracker as far as I know they never got Springer. For Leaders the only one I did not see was Astrotrain. I want to say the last time I was at the store was Mid March.

Having had a nice haul this weekend, this kinda led to a new pair of questions for the Twincast.

1) The alternity figures, how worth it is it to pursue them? do you guys have any? What are your overall thoughts on them? I'd just like a little look into your experience with them and have a "mini-retrospective" into that small group.

2) Have you ever had a time where you went to a friends, and either saw or bought a figure from them that led to a whole new rabbit hole that you went down and enjoyed?

It was apparently said "that the Netflix series is not a continuity of its own, its a part of the wider G1 story." But considering the plot/story how does that make sense. I personally took that statement to mean somehow that series would a prequel to the G1 series, but it clearly can't be.

It's not. It's its own new continuity simply inspired by the G1 cartoon (and more).

Alternately, that statement could instead be referring to how the Siege part of the trilogy is not the only part of the story since Earthrise and Kingdom are both the other two parts yet to come in this "wider G1(-based) story."

What are some characters you would like to see in Generations Selects and what molds would you like to see them use.
