Episode 204 features host ScottyP and sidekick Tigertrack making a long distance connection with site owner Seibertron, and lovable news admin and comic reviewer Va'al who are both live from San Diego (Stay classy...) and giving us their take on the live happenings and impressions from all of the transformers events like the Hasbro and IDW panels, and of course, the Bumblebee Movie event! The man of many voices, Jon 3.0, also makes a brief appearance at the end of the episode to share his excitement, as well.
Episode #204 "SDCC 2018" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.
Below are the topics covered in this episode:
-War for Cybertron SIEGE toys revealed! Beyond last week's reveal of Optimus, Sideswipe, and Battlemaster Firedrive, we expected a lot from SDCC and we were not disappointed! Ultra Magnus, Cog, Ironhide, and micromasters all get scrutinized by our team...while everybody loudly wonders, "Just where are the Decepticons?" And "Why doesn't Chromia still combine?" Is this an Armada-styled re-creation of G1 (possibly blasphemous, for many reasons)?
-ScottyP and Tigertrack discuss in-hand impressions of Predaking and the individual Predacons, and Seibertron adds a surprising commentary on his experience with them as well.
-Seibertron and Va'al discuss their experience with the Bumblebee Movie Panel, and how they feel about where this movie is going and how director Travis Knight seems legit. NOTE: There are some possible SPOILERS here based on experiencing seeing some scenes from the movie as part of the panel. Seibertron and Va'al describe the scenes and insightfully compare them to scenes/directing from the previous live action movies.
-Bumblebee movie toys, studio series, and exclusives - the evolution of making a movie based on merchandising and toys to making a movie that the toys are secondary and the movie comes first. And how lucky are we to finally be able to get our hands officially on those clever, cute and rare dino-cassette molds?
-The new Cyberverse line is touched on.. briefly.
-The future of Transformers comics was...missing from SDCC. But we did find out that they will be creating a Gobots mini (to minimal cheers).
-G1 Re-Issues are available again! In retro-packaging! What a golden-age of Transformers that we live in for so much to be available and happening!
-Brief Bragging rights -
