The Underbase Podcast

MTMTE#41 folks, and a dark secret awaits our lovable crew. . . well those who bother to leave the ship, and aren't not seduced by the dancefloor, that is!

Join Matt, Chris and Adam as they read and review the issue, try and work out Hotspots moves, educate us on matters of Dread Pirates and Ace Rimmers. . . . and pitch a mean solo outing for an overlooked member of the crew (explicit)

You can listen to the original recording of MTMTE#1 via our podcast home at http://theunderbase.libsyn.com/tf-treasury-special-the-underbase-original-review-of-mtmte1

Or via our new youtube page at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzKvoD3pQhU

The original recordings of Death Of Optimus Prime, and RID#1, are also now available.

To tie in with this weeks IDW Transformers:Treasury Edition (collecting THE DEATH OF OPTIMUS PRIME, RID#1 and MTMTE#1 together in oversized print) we have broken our original reviews out from the (what was MB2) vaults!
 
Current readers who have joined since the start the current ongoing series will hardly believe just how excited/relieved we were for this new era of TF comics. . . . . it was Christmas in more ways than one!


This show will feature our DoOP review, while our original reviews for MTMTE#1 and RID#1, will go up this weekend. . . . . Just don't blame us for getting our predictions wrong. . . . . Transformer plots didn't used to suprise as much!

Did you pick up your copy of TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE issue#0 as part of the free comicbook day celebrations?

If not, join Adam, Joe, Luffy and Temple for a readthrough and review of not just the ongoing series preview, but the other goodies the issue contained.


Matt returns to the MTMTE team just as Ratchet leaves the lost light in what is certainly a memorable issue!
With regular guests Chris and Adam, they read/review the issue, fret over a particular subplot as well as discussing other comic news. . . . not least of which includes a certain Joker picture.
Please note some swearing from Chris. . . but can you blame him for being worried?
