Twincast / Podcast Episode #268 "Call Me 2020"

Motto: ""Get into your enemy's mind. And then beat him at his own evil game.""
The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast is blasting into the new year with your host ScottyP along with Megatronus, Mr. Starscream and xRotorstormx as they look back on the craziness that was 2020 with their robot colored glasses on before peering into their crystal balls, which may or may not be made of shattered glass. Seriously. No goatees on Rodimus here or anything like that.

Episode #268 “Call Me 2020” 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.

It is the year 2021. The treacherous year of 2020 has conquered the Twincast's home planet of Earth. But - from secret staging grounds within their homes - the valiant crew prepare to retake their homeland.

Here's what we discuss in this episode:

  • This episode starts off with a short 2020 retrospective as we look back on the best Transformers toys of the year, as well as those that were sentimental favorites even if they weren't master works.

    Image

  • It wouldn't be a 2020 episode without, well, that darn 2020. The moments that encapsulated a truly odd year are reminisced upon, followed by a continuation of the negative energy with our picks for the worst Transformers toys of the past year.
  • Next up, prediction time! The cast discusses what they actually expect to see unveiled this year along with some predictions so unlikely they barely even qualify as wishful thinking.

    Image

  • The discussion heads off on a different route as we discuss the next installment of the War For Cybertron series on Netflix, Earthrise and some new show inspired bots making an appearance in the toy line.

    Image

  • It looks like a newly redesigned Masterpiece Thundercracker is hot on the heels of Masterpiece Starscream.

    Image

  • As this episode comes to a close, we wrap up with another round of bragging rights.

Probably a dumb question that is answered in the podcast but...where is that artwork in the thumbnail from? (Prime, Omega Supreme, Unicron, Jetfire), Thats is pretty amazing, I've not seen it before.
I enjoy asking questions, and always have. Please take no personal offense when I do. It's not about justification, is about acquiring knowledge.

I am very much interested in Four of the Botcon 2016 Customization Class toys (Medix, Shattered Glass Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, and Marvel Comic Ratchet), willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

Also interested in The 2002/03 Takara Micromaster releases (Sixliner,Sixwing,Sixtrain) willing to pay fair price, PM if interested in selling.

I saw that same TRU documentary, at least the Ferris wheel cars had a nicer fate.

I think my Covid moment in collecting was Target cancelling so many of my pre-orders. Granted it was a rate of 19 successes and 6 fails, but those six were all BOGO %50 off orders from February that would have saved me a lot had they gone though. Even worse was Walmart, they cancelled all but two of my Netflix wave 1 pre-orders (ordered all, only got Magnus and Scrapface) and all but one of my wave 2 pre-orders (ordered all but Soundwave and Bumblebee, only got Nemesis Prime), but the later actually worked out in my favor since they were cheaper in stores at the time.

On the other hand I ordered every single Transformers exclusive from Amazon and I got all of them (that have been released so far. Hell, I pre-ordered Scorponok at Amazon and I got him, too! Unfortunately the silver paint on his crotch is smeared all over and I couldn't exactly exchange for a new one. At least I got one, looking forward to giving him a full upgrade kit makeover!

Cropped from the cover of the Generations 2020 book. I adore those books but I feel like we're past due for a preorder to crop up for the 2021 edition :-?
