Episode #298 “The Revenge of Auggie Cahnay” is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher Radio and many other Podcatcher sites within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.
Here's what we discuss in this episode:
- The next big batch of upcoming Legacy toys was revealed last week during Hasbro's Fan First fTuesday livestream, so we talk about those
- Shattered Glass is continuing and we almost forgot already, but that's not its fault
- Legacy's first wave is out now too and we have most of them. We don't have Laser Optimus Prime yet, so you can be like us and live vicariously through Seibertron's excellent galleries of the toy
- On the heels of a recently shared Hasbro memo from way back in 1986, we address Black Bumblebee's listener question on the matter.
- Hydrargyrus takes us further in to listener questions, starting with a pair about alt modes we'd like to see more of
- We answer more of Hydrargyrus' questions, this time about toys that really surprised us in a good way, then we talk about things that baffled us
- Bragging Rights finish up another episode

The answers to my questions were, yet again, all-around excellent. I thought the ideas you had for alt-modes and how they could be implemented were all really good. Plesiosaurs have been some of my favorite animals since childhood, and I too am surprised we've never really gotten a Transformer that turns into one. As for the vehicles, I've actually never heard of, possibly never even seen, a trencher, and agree that it really would make a great Transformer. There are a lot of vehicles out there that would be cool as sort-of novelty alt-modes (my example included), but a trencher would fit right in with the Decepticon army.
As for my other pair of questions, I haven't had experience with most of the toys you brought up, but I still enjoyed listing to your answers. I do have Ractonite, but I think I personally prefer Paleotrex, who I find easier to turn into weapons/equipment for my other figures. I will admit that Ractonite probably has the better robot mode, though. Finally, I will say that I knew my question about "baffling" toys was somewhat of a longshot, and I simply appreciate the fact that Rotorstorm (the host) put some time and effort into thinking about it.
I would also like to echo Scotty in asking, where is alligator skeleton man?
