Top 5 Best Transformers Armada Toys

Top 5 Best Transformers Armada Toys

Best Transformers Armada Toys - This is the line that saw the advancements in articulation and complexity of the Beast Era and went "na, were good, lets go back to late G1 articulation with poor proportions and obtrusive gimmicks". And then the same thing happened again 15 years later for the Cyberverse line. You see, Transformers are cyclical that way. But it's not to say there isn't a lot to love in Armada and this list will go through some toys that I feel anyone should have in their collection as a keepsake of this era. Plus with all the hubub over the new Unicron, it was fun to revisit the line that gave us our first Unicron toy.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #228 "Afterthoughts"

Afterthoughts - Episode 228 of the Twincast Podcast starts with a re-visit of Haslab’s War for Cybertron: Siege Unicron project, with a look at the number of backers at the time of recording and speculation on the project's chances of being successfully crowd-funded by Transformers fans. After this, the Transformers movie-verse provides several topics starting with an in hand account of Studio Series Voyager Class Long Haul. Masterpiece MPM-8 Movie Megatron is front and center for discussion next, with analysis of the toy's looks and transformation plus comparisons to other Movie Masterpiece series releases. Other new Studio Series reveals including Deluxe Class Revenge of the Fallen Arcee, Chromia, and Elita-1, The Last Night World War II Hot Rod, and Dark of the Moon Soundwave also get early reactions from the cast. With the new in-color pictures released and their preorder listing on Hasbro Pulse, the Seacons Turtler and Gulf soon forthcoming from the Generations Selects series are the next toys to get a look. The discussion continues out of toy related topics and into other territory, including the Transformers card game’s Trypticon and friends as the first reveals for the next wave of products in the TCG's War for Cybertron: Siege II expansion. The cast ponders how bold the "Bold New Era" in Transformers comics really is after the initial 10 issues, with some cast still patient and others less enthused about this new direction. After bringing back hope for comics with the upcoming Transformers: Galaxies, a quick reading of Optimus Prime's Tech Spec from the 1995 Grandreams Generation 2 Annual leads in to the recurring bragging rights segment to end the episode.
Top 5 Best Non Screen/Show Accurate Transformers Toys

Top 5 Best Non Screen/Show Accurate Transformers Toys

Best Non-Show Accurate - The idea of owning a part of what you are a fan of is integral to the idea of collecting action figures. And of course, it is important for the object representing what we love to be as faithful as possible. I do remember being disappointed as a kid with the mutant heads on Beast Wars toys so much that I would remove them on Megatron and Dinobot, so even for kids accuracy to a show or movie can be important. However, there are some toys which are still pretty awesome even though they may have major inaccuracies and we will look at the best examples now.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #227 "SDCC 2019"

SDCC 2019 - San Diego Comic Con's 2019 event is in the books and the Twincast / Podcast is here to break down all the latest new happenings with Transformers in the wake of the show. The first hour of this episode talks about the Haslab Unicron crowdfunding project that Transformers fans can back to try and help make this gigantic toy a reality. After that discussion moves on to other recently released or revealed Transformers Generations War for Cybertron Siege products. This starts out with the Rainmakers and moves on to Generations Selects items like the Leader Class Galaxy Man Shockwave and Deluxe Class Lancer. Other new products are then discussed like Battle Master sized Rung from the IDW comics stories, Micromaster Ratbat, Voyager Apeface and soon-to-come repaints of several already released toolings such as Soundblaster, Bluestreak and special "Classic Animation" colored Voyager Class figures Optimus Prime and Megatron. Attention then turns to Micromasters with obscure recolors of those characters filling out a multi-pack of ten figures in the upcoming Fall season. Vintage Generation One product reissues are also continuing with analysis and reaction to the other pair of Dinocassettes, Gurafi and Noizu who will be released in all new "vintage" style packaging with complete Tech Specs in tow. After a brief discussion of upcoming Transformers comics projects from IDW Publishing, the group discussion ends with a round of the recurring Bragging Rights segment. Following that, two interviews occur that were recorded live at SDCC 2019, the first with the John Warden and Ben Montano from the Transformers brand team. The second interview rounds out this episode of the podcast as talks with Transformers TCG Brand Manager Drew Nolosco from Wizards of the Coast.

IDW Transformers '84 #0 Review

Posted 4 hours ago by ScottyP - 1,592 views

NEW! Regeneration Fun A Review of Transformers '84 #0 Minor/Contextual Spoilers Within Optimus knows it's worth going back to G1 one last time for 24 pages, unlike past-me. This is a review that must start out with a confession. When I initially saw the announcement of this one-shot prequel to the original Marvel comics Transformers series, all I could think of was Regeneration One and how I just do not want more of that continuity at this point. The story is told, the ink is dry, let's all - Read More
