1. I've lsitened to all 22 episodes so far and have noted the changes that have been going on. While I think it's good to have a revolving group, I can't help but wonder: What happened to the originl Podcast line-up?

2. Do any of you frequent any other TF fan sites? And if so, which other sites would you recommend?

Thisonenight, Ijustwouldn'tstoptalking....



Banzai-Tron - Action master, boat, or tank?

2011 is the 10th Anniversary of R.I.D. What is your favorite mold from that series?

Do you expect many angry fans next year with TCC Runabout but no TCC Runamuck?

United Targetmasters Caliburst and Spoilsport, who the heck do they pair up with?

What are you thoughts on the smaller fan conventions?

Do you think that the modern day Botcon has drifted to far away from what it originally was?

Pick a Botcon and/or club exclusive that you weren't really impressed with as far as mold choice and suggest a substitute mold.

Do you think if Steven Spielberg took over the reigns of doing TF Movies, do you think:

1. He would continue where Michael Bay left off or reboot?
2. That it will be better or worse than the Bay Trilogy?
3. will further splinter the fandom?


By the end of the Dark of the Moon toyline, what do you think will be the GRAND TOTAL of ALL the repaints/remolds/iterations of Movie Deluxe Bumblebee? Make an educated guess.

Do you think we will see an ULTIMATE Megatron to battle ULTIMATE Optimus Prime?

Being that Ironhide got upgraded to Leader Class, do you think we'll see Ratchet join him? If you plan on buying Leader Ironhide, are you doing so to put him with your main line Autobots, or your Human Alliance Autobots?

We have just heard about Encore Devastator being released later this year, which Encores do you see being on the shortlist as next releases? Which figures would YOU want to see on the shortlist?

There's been a lot of campaigning to get an RID Scourge out of RTS Optimus Prime from a lot of fans. It does feel like a given, who releases it (Club, Botcon, Hasbro, Hasbro Store Exclusive, Takara, or Takara Store Exclusive)?

If/when we do get Scourge/Nemesis Prime, he will be our 4th RID Classics figure (Bruticus from Cybertron Scourge, Skybyte from Energon Sharkticon and Sideburn from Classics Rodimus included). Do you think we will see more RID characters in the near future? Such as Prowl from Sideswipe/Sunstreaker or X-Brawn from Ironhide/Ratchet?

Since the release of Fracture (Crasher), Club Cop-Tur, and the Spoons homage from the movie line, there's been a distinct lack of Go-Bots homages released. Pick a homage that should have been yesterday to correct this tragedy. Cy-Kill from Wreck-Gar perhaps?

How tempted have you been by the SlagaCon exclusive Classics Powermaster Armor? Concept art enough, or do you need prototype pics to want?

Take a guess which year you think will be the year Frank Welker FINALLY makes an appearance at Botcon. Do you think Cullen will be there that year too? LULZ if he wasn't.

Which has had the more offensive paint jobs, Movie repaints or G2?

Do you think Hasbro will ever explore previous gimmicks from G2 such as Sparkers, Color Changers or Rotorforce?

That should be good for a while. ;)

RodimusConvoy had the last question we got to as we recorded.

Thanks for helping out. It was a really good show last night.

We will definitely hit this question up next time around.

1. Thank you for listening. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it when we get feedback. Skice is pursuing his own podcast, you can look it up on Facebook at "The Electronic Information Show". Pyro has been busy with life, but is always welcome back. Savage has been similarly busy.

Hopefully all the changes have been improvements and you're continuing to get better shows and productions.

2. I am on all the major TF sites except maybe TFormers because I just really dislike their forum format. The dudes over in the TFW toy and video game forums know me fairly well and I lurk at AllSpark on occasion. Other TF sites? Fred's Variant Pages. The site is down, but people have hosted parts or all of it and it has the most insane collection of variant info and odd bits of history. Check it out.

1. Boat

2. Rail Racer. If that doesn't count because it's three, then Prime.

3. I really hope so. I feed off of anger.

4. They were misnamed. Should have been named "Boxx" and "Sonsaku". Naturally, they go with Drift.

I would like to know if the TFCC membership is worth the $40 if i am not able to really collect the toys for space issues? So i guess is the magazine and comic in the magazine worth it since it is only 16 pages and only 6 a year?

Let's talk about fiction for a second. If you guys could scrub one aspect of Transformers lore, what would it be? Some examples:

A bad answer to this question would be "The entire live-action series," or "The Hub"

A mediocre answer would be "Megan Fox," "Wheelie's dope rhymes" or "Devastator's tiddlywinks"

A good answer would be "Transformers having Sparks," "That part in Beast Machines where everyone died," or "Unicron's origin story in Call Of The Primitives"

The Beast Wars cartoon and the Hearts of Steel comic showed us how a Transformers story could work in a time set prior to the present day. If you could have a new Transformers series or story be set in a previous time period, when and where would it take place?

Examples: The Middle Ages, the Old West, Feudal Japan, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Great Depression, the American Colonial times, the Age of Exploration, etc.

My question is why do you continually pronounce the word "continuity" incorrectly?

It is KAHN TI NEW ITY, not CONTINUE ITY. Sorry, I just find it annoying. There's a guy on the No Pink Spandex podcast who pronounces it the exact same wrong way, and it drives me crazy. Not trying to be a dick, but you sound really silly everytime you say it wrong.

Besides that, I love the show, and you guys never fail to make me chuckle. Keep up the good work.

What's next for the DotM toy line? The movie is now officially in theaters, Waves 1-3 of the deluxes have already been on the shelves, no big reveal at Botcon...so what's next? I know wave 4 has been confirmed and we have seen Walmart listings of a possible wave 5 (deluxe anyway) but it just seems like it's all happening really slowly. Are they holding back for the holidays or is there a real chance this line may be dying out already?

Will we expect future updates to the game? :???: I would also like the return of Mini-cons. If that isn't possible, then just ignore the last part. ;) :lol:

Hey, guys, I would love it if you did an episode where you talked about the TFs competition (back in the day, I mean), the GoBots. Just a brief discussion on what you guys thought of them when they were out, the TV show, etc.

It could be funny. Anyway, just a thought.

So how the heck is it pronounced? I hear it both ways on the Twincasts: Seibertron. Like Cybertron or is it Sabertron?

If you say it as if it were a Japanese word, then it's "Say-ber-tron". I'm trying to do this because it seems that's how Seibertron envisions it.

Now, to me, it's not written in Japanese kana, if it were and it were the same word, the kana would need to go "Se-i-ba-ta-ro-n" or something similar.

I "think" the word as "Cyber-tron" because it was an English word, romanized for Japanese use. What I learned in my Japanese classes in college was that foreign words that were specifically romanized would be said as if they were written with kana.

Example: Bus
Romanization: Basu
Pronounced: Ba-su

Now, if the word did not have a Romanization, then they would attempt to say it as close to the original language as possible. That may be taught differently now, or it may have been a quirk of my particular professor.

To me, the shows were attempting to replicate the English "Cybertron" which is why I would pronounce it that way too. But...when in Rome. ;)

But they do successfully replicate it. Just... not for the planet's name, but for the Autobot (Cybertron) faction. With that, they instead correctly say "Sa-i-ba-to-ro-n" to emulate "Cybertron", whereas they, like you said, say "se-i-ba-to-ro-n" for their home planet of Seibertron.

Though, in recent years, they've thrown all this out the window with the using English terms now. "O-to-bo-t-to" (or how ever it's pronounced) for "Autobot" instead of "Sa-i-ba-to-ro-n" for "Cybertron", and what have you. :roll:
