Weapon: Diffraction Sword
Fear not, loyal listeners, the Twincast is back! And boy, do we have a show for you!

First on the chopping block are the new images of Generations G2 Optimus Prime. Just like all of you, the Twincast team has plenty to say about this iconic homage. We offer lots of praise, criticisms, and even thoughts on where to display him.

Next up, we're checking in with Power Core Combiners. This week, the Twincast examines two new PCC figures: Undertow and Salvage.

And don't miss Pyrostrata bringing you the scoop on upcoming Galleries from Seibertron.com!

Much to our dismay, Legends Megatron has been capped!
...because Hasbro doesn't want you robbing liquor stores with their toys!

You've seen Transformers: Prime. You knew it was coming: Transformers: Prime, Twincast style! In this episode, the Twincast team breaks it down over Transformers: Prime. Characters, plot, voices, writing, we discuss it all! Transformers: Prime is a smash hit, and we'll tell you why!

(If you don't wish to hear any Transformers: Prime spoilers, please listen for Counterpunch's spoiler warning. The spoilerific Transformers: Prime breakdown will last for the majority of the remainder of the episode. To resume listening at a safe point, skip to approximately the last 7 minutes of the episode.)

Also in this episode...

Theme Song Love!

This Week in Transformers History


Lastly, on a personal note, if you're the first to find the blooper and post it in this episode's forum thread, Savage will give you one Cool Point*. Hint: It occurs somewhere in the episode, prior to the spoiler warning.

Please tell me you thought Prime spun down into crap. Am I the only one that doesn't like this show? and Rafe is HORRIBLE!!!! I hate the "kid owns a laptop so he is a super genius capable of hacking into government computers."

Right now the only things I'm watching for is Ratchet, Bulkhead and Arcee. I like Megatron and Starscream, but everything else can be done away with or done better.

Ratchet is Bones McCoy

I'm done.

Honestly? I did not like it.
Sure, some of the characters would make nice figures but as a show its weak. Very weak.
Is the action supossede to be after the events of the 2nd movie or the first? Or doesn't it have anything to do with the movie?
And why doens't Prie have a noze and have a flat face and WHY does Bumblebee talks like R2D2?

Heh, at first I was thinking you were referring to the Twincast. To which, I would respond that I would indeed make for a nice figure.

But TF Prime has nothing to do with the live action films and is not tied to any other media or story. They originally claimed it would connect with War for Cybertron, but directly contradicted that several times in Episodes 1 and 2.

I went on over to YouTube and watched the first two episodes of TF: Prime after listening to this weeks podcast. I have to agree with you guys. Overall, the series is rather enjoyable. Miko is anoying but tolerable. But I do agree with Counterpunch, I'm not a big fan of how CJ was treated. They didn't even give us time to relate to his character. I'm hoping he gets revived by the energy exploding, somehow reacting with the dark energon in his system. Thus showing Megatron how to control the dark energon.

Cool! You used my question! Thanks!

I'm kinda surprised Blurrz picked Armada, though. :P

Another good episode, guys. I'm really liking these. You've got a good lineup going.
