Seibertron.com Interviews Simon Furman: from the Past to The Death

Furmanisms - You won't believe the things we can do now, as Seibertron.com has been fidgeting behind the scenes to bring you more exclusive content from the creators of one of the longest running brands of fiction about giant transforming robots out there. You all bring so much to the community and fandom... can we do any less for you? You may be asking what we're playing at, with these odd turns of phrase, but the more perspicacious among you may have noted the pattern. We planted the seeds a long time ago, Seibertronians, it is now time to reap the whirlwind: please welcome to our interview series... Simon Furman!

Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"

The Hollow Men - Episode 152 of the Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast sees the return of Mainframes, which takes a deep look into the world of Transformers comic releases from IDW Publishing. This episode's focus is on the recently concluded Dying of the Light story from the cult phenomenon, More Than Meets The Eye. This episode will completely "spoil" this story, and many plot points in the greater IDW Transformers story arc, for readers that have not caught up to this point in the story. Analysis of all the shocking twists and turns seen throughout the six issue run, along with general thoughts and speculation about future potential plot lines awaits. Theories about what might have been are also in store, plus don't miss a shocking conversation about what may have happened at the end, and how the goal of the quest may have been realized years ago without readers knowing.
Dare To Be Great: Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie

Dare To Be Great: Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie

Transformers The Movie 30th Anniversary - With today marking 30 years since the release of The Transformers: The Movie, the fine folks at Shout! Factory (from whom you may Preorder the upcoming Blu-Ray release of the movie by clicking here) posed a question: how did this movie capture a special place in the hearts of millions and kids of the 80s? We'll explore the answer to this by carefully looking at the characters, themes, and imagery of the movie with a bit of input from the Seibertron staff along the way.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

And Rom The Space Knight - Our first chat is about the most recent issue of Transformers #54, new series Transformers: ’TIl All Are One and of course, not to be left out a little something we like to call More Than Meets the Eye, issue #54. What is Galvatron’s final play…does he have a trump card or is it all on the table? Is Swindle still alive? Should Megatron die? We ask these questions and more, then to wrap up the comic discussion, we talk more REVOLUTION and decide if the TRANSFORMERS universe is getting a soft reboot, no reboot, or a very hard reboot. Our ongoing Beast Wars TV series rewatch continues with episode 18, "Spider's Game", and episode 19, "Call of the Wild". After that, we briefly reach into our creative bags and throw some paint schemes out there for the new PLATINUM EDITION UNICRON and KRANIX. SDCC is coming soon, and we share what version of TITAN MASTERS FORTRESS MAXIMUS we want the most to be our Fortress. You’d think this would be enough, but nope, we finally delve into a topic led by Counterpunch that breaches the world of packages ... Transformers toy packages that is. The best? The worst? What in packaging attracts you? What turns you off? What packages do you keep or do you just throw it all away? We end this jam session with some bragging about our BEST recent purchases that are toys at least 10 years old.
