Twincast / Podcast Episode #253 "Danger Zone"


Danger Zone - Episode 253 of the Twincast / Podcast starts out with the cast discussing how successful, or not, their hunts have been for the Target exclusive Skywarp and Thundercracker two-pack from the War for Cybertron: Earthrise lineup. Another Transformers crossover appears to have leaked out, with the available images showing a Transformers toy based on Top Gun character Maverick. Among the same set of images showing potential new upcoming products are a Cyclonus, Thrust, and Soundwave, with the cast providing their speculation on these slightly mysterious pictures. After that, the hosts touch on the release of a new Transformers video game trailer, followed by a quick reflection on the "Fan First Friday" for Transformers which featured exclusive t-shirts. A fair amount of time is then spent analyzing the just released Transformers #20 comic book and how it affects us based on the current state of our world. This eventually becomes into a look at authorial and artistic intention in media, but is capped off with a more lighthearted stretch where the cast sees just how many characters they can name in the large crowd shot at Swindle’s in the issue. The recurring Bragging Rights segment then ends another episode.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #252 "Ratcheting Expectations"


Ratcheting Expectations - The Twincast / Podcast begins episode 252 with speculation and discussion of the latest Transformers rumors which concern a possible expansion of the Generations Studio Series lineup to include characters from the 1986 Transformers movie instead of just those from the Michael Bay universe of live action Transformers films. After that, Movie discussions continue as the latest upcoming entry into the Movie Masterpiece series has been officially revealed in the form of MPM-11 Ratchet. Generations toys tied in with the still upcoming Netflix animated series have become easier to find for collectors as of late, so the cast takes time to reflect on the first wave of output for these Walmart exclusive offerings. Two listener questions come up next, starting with an impromptu look at the Transformers: Alternity line of robots in disguise that convert into 1:32 scale real life vehicles. The second question has the podcasters reflect on times when close friends influenced their collecting habits. Off the cuff remarks about "Holy Grails" in the hobby round out the talk before the episode concludes with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment where the participants share their latest Transformers product acquisitions.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #251 "Bob Lobclaw's Rumor Mill"

Bob Lobclaw's Rumor Mill - Episode 251 of the Twincast / Podcast starts out with a look into the latest Generations Selects figures unveiled on Hasbro Pulse, the set of five Decepticons that comprise the mighty God Neptune from Beast Wars II. Next up, a new wave of Netflix figures may soon be on the horizon and some names definitely piqued our interest. No one is surprised by the news of another Bumblebee figure, this time with a Deluxe Class figure rumored to be coming to the Earthrise line. A deluxe Cheetor figure has also been discovered in Walmart's system leading to lengthy speculation on the implications of more Beast Wars characters in the Generations product line. A possible "Sleep Mode" Optimus Prime and a Studio Series Devastator boxed set round out the rumor discussions prevalent in this episode. Two listener questions that cover the product reveal plans for the now-canceled 2020 San Diego Comic Con as well as thoughts on the distribution of the Siege line come up next. We close out this episode with a joke-filled round of the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment.

Parade Day - The Twincast / Podcast returns for another week with episode 250.

Impressions of the recently release Studio Series Voyager Class Sentinel Prime and Scrapper follows, with this latest wave bringing fans one step closer to completing the Constructicon combiner Devastator based on his appearance in Revenge of the Fallen. Generations Selects' Soundwave Spy Patrol 3rd Unit has also shipped out, featuring Wingthing, Frenzy, Skar and Knok. The cast takes some time to discuss them with the conversation going to some fascinating places before the show concludes with the recurring "Bragging Rights" segment.

First Look at Possible Generations Selects IDW Centurion (Brunt Redeco)

Posted 5 days ago by william-james88 - 20,439 views

When Transformers Siege Brunt was first revealed, it was pretty clear the robot mode design was taken directly from the Centurion design from the IDW Stormbringer comic. So that seemed not only like an obvious redeco but also like the character this design was intended for. But we never got an IDW Centurion ... until now... maybe. I say maybe because while this looks like grey plastic, there have been customs of this same character done already so we never know until an official release. But - Read More
