TFU News & Views 49 – Transformers: Kingdom SPOILER Review Panel



Warning! Spoilers ahead! Join this All-Star fan panel as Ant gets a little help from his friends to dissect the final installment of Netflix’s War for Cybertron Trilogy with Kingdom. Special guests on the show include “The Salty Seaman,” Gabriel Owens, Jen Ulm of Stasis Pod Podcast, Ben Yee of Ben’s World of Transformers (BWTF), and James Hooks. A couple of these guests may even have had some influence on the original run of Beast Wars 25 years ago! You may have seen this panel live on YouTube just after Kingdom hit and I hope you watched it as it was a great time. The audio version has bonus audio from me talking a bit more to my likes and dislikes on Kingdom, as well as the histories of some of the folks on the panel and their contributions to the fandom. Enjoy!
