Don't want to hear all the juicy comic book spoilers? You better skip to 01:11:30!

As our interview with the AKT crew comes to a close, the guys were awesome enough to stick around for some toy talk!

Hasbro has finally brought back the headmasters, but will the quality issues hinder Brainstorm's populatrity among fans?

Point of order about the audio, specifically, anytime I'm talking. Had some mic issues and got some major clipping. Was able to improve it in editing, but it still sounds bad whenever I speak. Could have fixed it almost entirely, but it made everyone else sound bad then too, so I figured it'd be better to have one person that sounds bad and five that sound ok rather than six that sound bad.

It's a fixed problem that won't happen on future episodes. Hope you all have fun listening to this one despite that!

Pull up a couch, let's sit informally and rap. Though on that note, i will say, i'm pre-ordering Brainstorm through HasbroToyshop. It seems like these are an entirely different shipment, as they are slated for release in late January of 2015. So it's possible this shipment may fix the QC issues from the first wave of brainstorms released. It kinda seems like those were almost like test market figures.

Great that you guys actually managed to the TAKT conclave on here, fun listen!

It's actually pushed me to give in and try submitting something myself. I looooove my own voice, and dramatic is what I do baby. :P


I had initially some reservations about the project, but listening to all the work they do, from the full episodes to the smaller clips - and I love Chris to pieces - and now hearing who they are behind the scenes just makes me like them more.

(And they seem to like my Instagram robot silliness, so you know, doesn't hurt. :D )

I do wonder whether there is an opportunity to merge or find some overlap with motion comics (see the IDW/Madefire stuff) and what the Knights do, to get full-on experience. Similar to the Megatron or Nautica/Nightbeat clips, in fact!

----

The whole Claire spotlight was extremely entertaining, for the record. :D

TAKT set to and synced with a motion comic would be excellent.

This is Pete from TAKT! We are already working on a Madefire component, and the possibility of working with IDW isn't off the table! *wink wink* :-)

I have just sent you a message on your Facebook page, asking about just that - can you PM me on here, or email vaal@seibertron.com, so I can ask a couple of questions? :D


I really wanted to try for Vos, but missed that chance waaaaay back.




Oh and the podcast is fine, too, Scott. I guess. :P

Eh, fifteen seconds in and I can't get over Night Beat's vocal pattern. And he sounds like Prime too much

Yeah, uh that completely ruined it for me. That's probably not how nightbeat should sound. I picture him as something from like a mid 70's beat-cop drama.
