TWiG topic show episode 122: Transformers franchise



*Warning Spoilers for the Transformers franchise*

We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there’s more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars. We are here. We are waiting.

Prepare to choose your alternate mode in this month’s topic show covering the G1 Transformers franchise and it’s various incarnations. Mike “The Birdman” Dodd and his decepticon nemesis Spada, the Baltmatrix take you through the 1980’s toyline and into the current time with stops in toys,movies, video games and so much more. Birdman and Spada have it all from the heroric tales of the G1 cartoon to the somehow super successful Michael Bay franchise and even some oddities that you may not even know about.

Special thanks to Hasbro for their support of the show and providing review samples from Transformers:Age of extinction.

Birdman was born on October 20th 1981 and has been here there and everywhere, traveling across Canada and the USA as often as he can. However he calls Owen Sound,Ontario,Canada home for the most part, despite it being similar to Mos Eisley Spaceport. Grew up in the sticks of mid western Ontario and usually found absorbing data from all sorts of different sources, video games, movies and occasionally pirated TV. However it wasn’t till Mike heard the voice from the Kingdom of Nye, Art Bell that he knew he found something interesting and kept an ear to the world of radio broadcasting. Years later when the time finally came to get it together and head off to college, Mike choose the world of Television production from his experience of Rogers television as a technical producer but that would not last as his career choice. A chance encounter with an individual named Steve Saylor changed his future once and for all and the rest they say is History….
