    Quick note: I've passed along some of the podcast app feedback from ep 596, currently if you have a program to add to the list please let me know over in that thread so I can keep it in one place!

    Honestly, talking about why I prefer the recent offerings Generations has over Masterpiece, the main point is that they're not scary to transform.

    Sunstreaker is a perfect example. I've watched videos of MP Sunstreaker, and it honestly terrifies me. Same thing with MP-44 Optimus and his Siege Voyager. While yes, it isn't the exact model truck like his Earthrise Leader or the Masterpiece, I'm okay with that. Size and price are also factors.

    My podcast player of choice, pocket casts, stopped showing the latest episode since 592. I'm still subscribed and I've tried resubscribing through a couple different ways and 592 is still the latest episode it's showing. Any ideas?

    I also reported through cast box that the list is incomplete. I hope that helps.

    it's on the list from last episode so I've passed it along - I don't actually handle any of the RSS end so for now I'm not sure how to help beyond that :(  Literally nothing I'm aware of (or doing as the editor) changed between 592 and 593 but that seems to be the point where stuff got out of whack

    weird way to custom a siege Cyclonus

    I have my prowl v barricade set up for both worlds locked in. And I'm having a hard time mounting any desire for the other two datsuns in any form.

    I’m willing to bet the lack of terrorsaur is because he’s voyager sized in the show.

    Rexy from BW Megs broke that for me cause that licence is with Mattel so I’d be quite surprised.

    It's apparently a one-time deal. Considering things like the Netflix figures ended up being true, I'm not that doubtful.

    The NECA TMNT stuff I have has been surprisingly good but yeah, agreed, NECA\'s not a good company. From the design and quality issues to their distribution problems.

    Great episode. I was following along on Twitter when Dr. Egg exploded. I'm glad no one got hurt.
    And I can totally agree that the Earthrise Soundwave is awesome. I really like him!

    Glad I'm not alone in this. Was worried I was doing something wrong.

    The thing about the leaks that I hope changes, come the actual existence of the figures, are those selects 2 packs with the BW Skywarp and Grimlock. Those moulds both look to be my favourites of the year, and those are designs which I both really love. And I don’t wanna have to buy 2 other figures just to get them. I don’t own either of Mirage or Sideswipe, but i feel obligated to own them now and that just feels icky and it’s already gonna be tough to buy exclusives anyway.

    Agreed, BW Grimlock is a bit of a grail for me and I was looking forward to the generations version with how the original tends to be...I however have no desire to own the sideswipe mold

    Can confirm that both Cyberverse Arcee and Grimlock\'s plastic will discolour.

    Grimlock\'s is understandable with him being made of a softer plastic but Arcee\'s was a surprise as it was her biceps and thighs that turned a shade of orange after a 40°C day
