00:33:38 New Comic Releases:
Optimus Prime #8
Written by John Barber with art by Casey Coller.
Jazz is given an interview on television, but is confronted about crimes against humans perpetrated by transformers, and runs away.
Autobots and Junkions attempt to work together.
We see Pyra Magna sowing seeds of dissent against Optimus.
Pacing is a little off, as there isn’t really a linear structure.
The flashbacks to Jetfire’s past feel the most structured, even though they break up the present day plot.
Barber’s character building shines through here, as we see continued development of character arcs that he’s been plotting for years, such as the relationship between prime and Pyra Magna, but also character development that harkens back to plotlines from other writers.
On the whole a solid character driven issue that unfortunately lacks the narrative drive to create an engaging comic.
The Transformers: Salvation
Written by John Barber with art by Livio Ramondelli.
From the outset looks like it’s going to be a big dumb fight between the dinobots and trypticon.
Ends up being a perfectly structured, character driven home run of an issue that takes the story in very unexpected directions.
Every character, even trypticon is made engaging.
Slug’s death at the hands of Sandstorm acting under Starscream’s orders is a gut punch of the highest order. Not something you see coming, and when it happens, it takes a moment to sink in.
The last page reveal of starscream about to insert a mutated sweep spark into slug’s corpse with the guidance of bludgeon leaves you with a feeling of dread and just a teensy bit of hope.
On the whole, a perfect conclusion to Barber and Ramondelli’s “Dinobot trilogy.”

00:51:29 THE MAIN DISCUSSION
Transformers The Last Knight is under a week away. By the time this podcast is released some lucky members would have already been to an advanced screening to see it.
So, what are your hopes, expectations and fears of the film?

Till All Are One Carcer Design Sketch From Sara Pitre-Durocher:
http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/05/16/til-one-carcer-design-sketch-339012

New Release: Lost Light #5:
Written by James Roberts, drawn by Jack Lawrence.
Part 5 of the book’s first arc “Dissolution.”
Non-linear structure, jumps back and forth between time periods.
Two pretty big plot twists.
Pacing feels off.
Plot twists lack any real weight. One is anticlimactic, the other has not had enough buildup.
Probably the weakest issue of the series thus far.
Still not bad by any means.

00:44:22 THE MAIN DISCUSSION
Why do hasbro continually reuse characters? Why are we still seeing Optimus prime and megatron? New characters get added in comics and fans love it and buy 3p figures of those characters. Lately RID introduced the most new characters in the US cartoon history.
And we often knock geewunners for not being able to move on and enjoy the 32 years of the franchise, how can they when hasbro can't move on.

01:06:27 NEW ACQUISITIONS

Max: Masterpiece Grapple, Last Knight Deluxe Barricade, Tiny Turbo Changers Grimlock and Shadow Grimlock, DOTM Deluxe Thundercracker, WFC Deluxe Prime, Cyberverse Hardshell and Ironhide.

00:46:23 THE MAIN DISCUSSION
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1478790042186405&set=gm.734885266672079&type=3&theater

There's often online chatter about movie figures being “shelf warmers.” Shelf warmers are figures that hang around on shelves even when a new line is coming out. The live action movie lines are often referred to shelf warmers more so because adult collectors don't normally buy them. But if you look at your local toy aisle today, there will be figures released a year ago still there awaiting a home.
current lines not selling
What is a shelf warmer anyway? Other than an insult to throw at a toy that's simply not to your tastes.
Those who are complaining that the arrival of movie toys will mean something they've been waiting for won't be released here could have bought the figure they want online ages ago
Any notable shelfwarmers from recent history?
CW Silverbolt
CW Skywarp (though its late)
Overseas is really different (Platinums, Gift Sets, CW Ironhide)

http://news.tfw2005.com/2017/04/23/entertainment-weekly-complete-article-transformers-last-knight-hot-rod-337727?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

Article Breakdown
Described as a covert agent
Hot Rod has secretly been serving as Hopkins daughter characters protector in the guise of her father’s 1963 Citroën DS.
It’s a rickety old car, but she can’t part with it because she adores it
Working in secret for Anthony Hopkins character. So presumably no connection to autobot team.
Currently no voice actor attached, production looking for a forensic accent.
Fans claim hot rod had voice in fan event screening but may be re recorded prior to films release.

00:53:50 THE MAIN DISCUSSION
When we start out collecting we often hunt for anything and everything Transformers related. But over time due to changes in disposable income, space, mid release design changes or falling out of love with a line the purge happens.
So thanks to Danny Quinlan over in Wa, have you ever done
“the Purge?”

-A couple of figures or a full line?

Reasons why?
-Out of space
-Change of collection focus
-Unhappy with designer build quality
-Moving locations
-Falling out of love with a line
