Twincast / Podcast Episode #250 "Parade Day"

Postby xRotorstormx » Sat May 09, 2020 5:40 am

Motto: ""Get into your enemy's mind. And then beat him at his own evil game.""
The Twincast / Podcast makes its triumphant return with another weekly roundup of all things Transformers. We join Cobotron, Rotorstorm and Scotty P as they sit down to discuss Sentinels and Ironhides and Prowls, all on the perfect day for... a parade!

Episode #250 “Parade Day” is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Here's what we discuss in this episode:

  • First up, it was recently discovered via Amazon France that there may be another Earthrise special two pack coming down the pike. This time it's Prowl and Ironhide. Will these two be simple Siege repaints or will we see any re-tooling? Let's us know your thoughts!


  • Up next, ScottyP gives us his in-hand opinion on the latest Studio Series figures to be found at retail, Scrapper and Sentinel Prime.


  • Announced at Toy Fair and now shipping from Hasbro Pulse, it's the long awaited Generations Selects Spy Patrol 3rd Unit which contains the likes of Wingthing, Frenzy, Skar and Knok.


  • We close out this episode with another rough of bragging rights


We hope you've enjoyed our temporary weekly format, stay tuned in a couple weeks as we return to your regularly scheduled bi-weekly format.

Sunday Funday!

rule #1 of Cyberverse: DO NOT SKIP AHEAD!!! You will get lost if you miss it, it is highly serial in Season 3 for a majority of it.

That Ironhide/Prowl pack triggered a "nope" reaction for me. It's slowly killing Earthrise for me, I find myself wanting less and less as we go.

I gave up tracking coneheads, We know they are coming, but how I no longer really care. I'm actually hoping Thrust is a Target Redcard exclusive, just for fun.

Cobs, SS VW Bee is one of the weakest of the line, and the transformation and alt mode are definitely some very weak points of the figure.

I really like Sentinel, he is a really solid figure, the detailing is intricate, the paint work is pretty nice, the face sculpt is so good! He is a great figure, he has a few weak points, but overall the good far outweighs the bad.

Sentinel was bigger than Optimus by a bit, but I agree the current SS Optimus needs to be maybe 5% larger.

I'm still waiting on Scrapper. He just got delayed. again.

G1 Doubledealer is a great G1 toy, probably the best G1 toy I own. all of the Powermasters are fantastic dudes.

Some of those mid-RiD2015 figures were truly hard to get. I felt so blessed when I found Springload (the frog into pickup truck guy!), same with Groundbuster (gorilla dude), Crazybolt too! That is a figure i never found, not sure I want to now, but that was a figure impossible to find.

Nice Cyberverse Hot Rod Scotty! I'm still trying to find Whirl, and i'll probably try to wait out Hot Rod and Grimlock as in-store purchases. Same with Arcee. Probably not thunderhowl so I can complete Maccadam.

I'm pretty excited for Arcee and Thunderhowl, both toys look really cool.

Scotty/Cobs: Thunderhowl is a wolf, and he has a nice spotlight episode, and then serves as a background for the rest of the show.

Perfect day for a parade!

Oh, very cool! I have a favor to ask: if we ever sound actually old and out of touch, please say so. I worry about it as a 30-something. Maybe when I stop worrying about it is the signal I've actually become old and out of touch :lol:

Look up Universal Studios Japan's night parade, some very cool imagery. I grabbed a cgi photo from their site since front page needs to look pretty, but there are actual pictures folks have taken online and it still looks like a really cool experience.

That was really interesting hearing you guys talk about high school collectors. I'm currently in 11th grade and have been collecting transformers since titans return but did get a few combiner wars figs as well. Sadly where i am it's not really normal to still be collecting toys so most of my interactions with other fans of the same age group is through social media or message boards like this one. I think you're right that collecting is becoming more normal to be open about for many places and maybe my area will start to see that shift in the future.
