There is more to Transformers than movies, cartoons, comics and toys. Discuss anything else Transformers here.

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."

Got a question related to a strange idea that came to my head last weekend.

If you could choose a character or a couple characters outside of G1 who typically have a car/plane/etc. alt mode to incorporate into Beast Wars complete with brand new beast bodies of your choosing, who would you choose and what would their alt mode be? Don't be afraid to go crazy.

Mine personally as an example would be TLK Mohawk with a HellHound beast mode.

When do you think wave 4 and 3 of kingdom will be revealed especially considering the recent reveal of Rodimus Prime by Takara Tomy. Which weirdly doesn’t seem to be acknowledged by Hasbro

OK, I have a couple I'd like to put forth and see if some interesting discussion would come forward from it.

1) One a scale of 1-10, how committed are you to completing teams in this hobby, toy wise? Like, if you found 3 of the 6 CW Protectobots, or Triggerhappy and Slugslinger but no Misfire, how hard would you try to complete those teams? Would it consume you, or do you just not care and if you see the rest you get them?

2) Continuing on with reissue talk thanks to the Beast Wars reissues, If you could see let's say 4 figures from Armada, Energon, and Cybertron to reissue, which would you want to see reissued and why?

3) Tackling the recent Cyberverse show, who was: a) your favorite new take on an old character; b) your favorite new character; c) your favorite overall Cyberverse addition to the wider TF lore (war titans, inter-dimensional quintessons, seeker death cult, etc.)

4) As a lover of Pretenders, and having recently secured my first Beast Pretender, if you could choose your favorite type of pretender concept (human, monster, beast, vehicle, etc.), which would it be?

What colorings of characters seem to have stuck around that you wish would change? This includes not only color schemes, but layouts as well (I know helmet colors can be a big deal). For me, I think Wheeljack's very Italian color scheme doesn't really work in the era of Transformers not generally being sponsored racecars. I find the Alternators colors, for instance, to be much nicer.

If that turns out to be one of those things that's interesting to me, but not other people, I've got a more straightforward alternative: what's the worst Transformers color scheme? I'm gonna have to go with G2 Cyberjet Strafe. Being colorblind, I had assumed he was just two shades of green or gold or something (in addition to the blue and translucent yellow). When someone pointed out that he's actually green and bright red, I finally saw how badly his colors clash.

If Transformers, in a similar vein to DC, started making animated movies based on comics, what story would you want to see most in that format? In addition to Marvel, Dreamwave, and IDW, feel free to branch off to any source you’d like, even if it’s not a comic.

(Feel free to abbreviate my name to “Hg” if this makes it into the Podcast)

Dear Twincast,
What is transformers toy you visibly remember losing over the years. Mine would be the yellow RID spy changer Optimus Prime and the Red Alert colored Prowl spy changer. Who I'm pretty sure got left behind at a hotel in Myrtle Beach.
