The Twincast / Podcast is back as our host ScottyP and chuckleheads Mr. Starscream and Megatronus lark through the latest Transformers news and... manga? Think about packaging, nomenclature and Headmasters while this episode's topics transform from jokes to serious and back again in more new fun Transformers podcast listening for your week.

Episode #262 “Generational Taxonomy” is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher Radio and many other Podcatcher sites within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Here's what we discuss in this episode:

  • Walmart is getting exclusive redecos of Titans Return Headmasters with G1 style packaging. Intriguing, to say the least - but where do these fit into our collections?


  • More exclusives on the block: Voyager Thrust and Deluxe Runabout at Target, and Galactic Odyessey Micromasters at Amazon. Who got what, and what's worth the hunt?


  • Studio Series is looking a bit retro with the '86 Movie subline - but the toys are looking sharp. We discuss screen accuracy, engineering, and whether we finally have a reason to use those backdrops.


  • We quickly mention the amazing Beast Wars Beast Generations Mook, and the preview pages that touch on the comprehensiveness of this volume.
  • Itching for Manga? So is the Twincast! ScottyP walks us through Volume 3 and some of the (few, sparing) differentiations from G1. Another excellent read worth the small investment.


  • We close out this episode with an entertaining round of bragging rights. Enjoy!

Sorry about my audio on this one, I'm not sure what's crapped out on my microphone to make that weird interference start coming through. We cleaned it up best we could during editing, and I've got a new mic on the way already that hopefully won't hurt anyone's ears later!
