Twincast / Podcast Episode #244 "Call Me Maybe"

Call Me Maybe - Episode 244 of the Twincast Podcast finds the cast starting out the episode by talking about the recently released comics from the IDW Publishing Transformers ongoing, issues 18 and 19. While the pair of issues constitute signs of life and creativity, the cast members question whether this is enough to revive the series. Contributors are then challenged to think of a piece of Transformers media, be it toy line or content, they were initially unimpressed by but were later drawn back in to. Obscure trivia follows after that about Transformers Armada Mini-Con Inferno, partner of Decepticon Thrust, and the mystery behind an intended part of the design or a widespread assembly error. The episode ends with a robust discussion with cast member pitches on what kind of Transformers cartoon would be accessible and friendly for all ages, given the conclusion of the Transformers: Cyberverse cartoon.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #243 "Mega Teeth"

Mega Teeth - Episode 243 of the Twincast Podcast starts with the group taking stock of the recent release of Transformers: The Manga Volume 1, available for the first time from Viz Media with a new English translation. The cast discusses the artwork, the story with its parallels to the original 80s cartoon, and the overall packaging of the collected volume. The conversation turns to the latest toys out of the Earthrise line, as Megatronus and Counterpunch update the Twincast crew on which figures from the recently released first-wave of toys are their favorites, counterpoint opinions on Deluxe Class Hoist and Voyager Class Grapple from the previous episode, and reflect on which new toys leave them wanting something more. The episode ends as it often does with the Bragging Rights segment, where each cast member discusses what they acquired since the last episode.
Review of IDW Transformers #18

Review of IDW Transformers #18

Transformers #18 Reviewed - I liked this issue. It is actually my favourite issue of the ones I have reviewed for the site. Of course that doesn't mean much, all I needed was an issue with less stairs and talking. And funny enough, I don't recall any prominent stairs here, instead it was more star wars type walkways and ramps. Now that i think of it, for a species that turns into cars, don't ramps make more sense than stairs? Why even have stairs? Eh, moving on ...

I've finally reached that point in setting up my TF collection room ... Alternators and Binaltech. Unpacking them, I'd remembered the major figures. Smokescreen, he started it all.

Takara toys always come out near the very end of the month, so in the end of March we get the final Seasons and this Nemesis Prime.

Bayverse Grimlock Toy Appeared in one of the Worst Films of 2019

Posted 7 days ago by william-james88 - 16,781 views

Have any of you heard of 2019 film The Fanatic, a film starring John Travolta and directed by Limp Bizkit? While Travolta aimed for a Rain Man type performance, it was more of an embarrassment for everyone involved and has a 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which is a little better than the rating for The Last Knight (15%) but worse than the rating for Age of Extinction (18%). I bring these three films up because they have something in common: Bayverse Grimlock. In a scene where John Travolta - Read More
