We start by celebrating the recent 30th anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie. What does it mean to us? When did we first see it? The cast relates some stories and memories. Seibertron also gives his delightful news that he's getting the new Blu-Ray very soon.
Prime's death really wasn't what upset Scotty.
Continuing in the movie vein, Seibertron tells us of his adventures on the set of Transformers 5: The Last Knight! What did he see? Who did he meet? Check out his account of this awesome opportunity.
I'm driving down I-96 as a big old Semi Truck!
Moving on from movies we move to comics. With the long awaited return of Razorclaw, he carries us away with tales of stacks of comics and couches. He's finally caught up on the IDW era of Transformers comics, so find out his thoughts plus a few of those from the rest of the crew. Also: Seibertron comes to grips with a long held gripe.
I grew as a character. Then I regressed.
After that it's on to the toys. There's a few of us with Titans Return Fortress Maximus. Does he live up to expectations? Has anyone found the best city mode? Find out this and more, along with a very short discussion of the different versions available.
I'd show you my best city mode if these guys would get off of me.
CybertronCon revealed a lot of great upcoming Titans Returns toys. Hear us talk about what our favorite reveals were such as the tantalizing peek at Trypticon. Six Shot's great "submarine" mode, Hot Rod retools, triple changers and more help us finish off this summer's season of reveals.
You don't like my Jet mode? *sniff* That hurts, man... *sniff*
We finish off this episode with bragging rights! We got a lot of fun things since the last show! What was our favorite?
Time to send the haters back to Crybertron.

I can understand not liking the Thunderwing head on Thunder Mayhem if you'd prefer a gold face like the original toy (or a Bludgeon skull head), but I personally love how much they made it look like TW's appearance in the Marvel comics.
I'm thinking Reprolabels will some up with a set to add a lot more green to Skullsmasher to make him look just a little bit more like a proper alligator Megatron/Megalligator.

That was a nice choice of image for the Fort Max talk. I love how Ryan homages the panels in the marvel comic. That was awesome, and I thought about making that set up myself!
So proud of Bob! Finally on the show again, and all caught up on IDW comics.
I get what the club was going for with Thunderwing's head. I just am not as happy as I thought I would be e with the final result. I had liked all the limbs, and I was looking forward to Bludgeon, I just ended up a bit disappointed about the final results. It was a rear idea, and filled a bunch of holes in the collection.

I had comments. I forgot them all. Will relisten and write them down!

Time to send the haters back to Crybertron.
...I had not seen this caption first time round. Excellent.
On the comics side of things:
- Well done Bob on catching up, an impressive feat!
- Well done on following my reading order! Going back over all of the texts does make a lot more sense, taking them in chronological rather than publication order. (And you will make me blush, eventually.)
- Well done on napping post Dark Cybertron - it still haunts me. (But yes, it does work much better in collection format.)
- I am so glad you like Windblade, in Sarah Stone's art too. Such a gorgeous book.
The John Barber background point - y'know, now that he's not in an editorial position, possibilities for interviews and fan-event appearances are opening up... hm. May have to get onto that.
Fun fact on Eugenesis - there was a silent charity auction for a copy of that book at TFNation, and it eventually sold for £400 ($530 USD)!
As for the everyone-has-funny-lines, and Mike's critique (mostly Mike, but also Ryan) of MTMTE being written as a sitcom (or a series, anyway): I agree, overall, and it's been very much so the case in Season 2 <-- there you go. That is how Roberts talks about it, how the readership does, how it's sold, and a blatant indication that there is no hiding of that fact in the author's approach to the series.
Now, for Revolution...
