Getting back into the swing of things, Seibertron.com is proud to present the latest episode of the Twincast Podcast. As always, you can obtain our podcasts by visiting the podcast download area or directly from iTunes.

This week, a skeleton crew with your host, Counterpunch, and regular podcast members Razorclaw and Tigertracks, take a stab and some of the most pressing news in the Transformers Fandom as well as bring a close to 2011.

We start by discussing our over-Christmas hauls, including Matt's new addition and Bob's new car, as well as Mike's and Matt's bounties of new toys.

Next, we recap the 2011 holiday season, and our year-in-review article, edited by news-mod extraordinaire Blurrz.

Following that, we give you an overview on the massive set of new galleries from Ryan, including:

Image
Chara Hobby Black Soundwave

Image
Human Alliance Soundwave

Image
Lawson Darkside Optimus Prime

Finally, we get into the topic on everyone's mind: BotCon 2012 and the figure set. We discuss "The Overlord" Gigatron, SG Treadshot and the Universe connection, SG Soundwave and the Cold Slither tie in, and SG Tracks, as well as speculation on registration, which has occurred since recording.

Gonna have to listen to it later.

With that said, though, looking at the line up of topics, I'm saddened to see one in particular that appears to be absent: Rescue Bots. Since this is the first Twincast Podcast recorded since after the sneak peek airing of the first two Rescue Bots episodes, I was hoping that you guys might have discussed it, saying how you thought it was and what you liked/disliked about it. *sigh* Ah, well. Maybe in the next Twincast Podcast. :)

Cuz, I really liked Rescue Bots. And I mean REALLY liked it! :grin: =P~ :-B 8) :mrgreen:

I kinda liked the stripped down, 'unplugged' version of the show.

Where are the pics of those illegal alien TFs, TT24?

Another great show guys. One question, You guys mention on occasion rumors of upcoming toy releases. Where exactly do you fine those rumors? Is it buried in the site somewhere, or is it through insider contacts that you have made over the years?

Yeah, I think I like the Tracks repaint the best, and that's why I started customizing my own.

So none of you got into the customization class? That's disappointing.

Oh, you touch my tralala.

Are any one of you three going to get the entire set + attendee stuff?

What a fun episode. It was full of news, entertainment, and lots of laugh out loud moments. Really looking forward to seeing you guys again.

Me and my three friends are looking forward to a gentlemen night of drinking. Guess who my three friends are?

Finally have a chance to sit down and listen.

*Agreed on the "That's what she said" joke needing to die. It's always come off as nothing but mean-spirited and hurtful to me.

*Vehicon (and Terrorcon Cliffjumper for that matter) is First Edition. Deluxe Wave 1 of RiD consists of Wheeljack, Soundwave, CJ (new mold) and BB (new mold).

...

...

*What? It's already over? Wow! A short one this time. Great job, guys.

Still hoping for a Rescue Bots talk in a later episode. ;)

Thanks dude, glad you're with us.

I have to be honest about Rescue Bots...it's not something I'm going to choose to include on the show. I recognize it's a good show for kids, but the entertainment value is not something that is able to compete for my very, very limited viewing time.

Stuff like RB is one of those things I am happy to acknowledge as a worthwhile show, but it's not something that as host I am willing to devote time to. Now, if Jon and Ryan are down with it, they are welcome to run a review session on it all. I know they were pretty down with the toys so far.

I don't say any of that in a mean spirited way or anything, it's just an empty topic for me personally.

I'm genuinely excited about this.

This is happening.

This is real.

Just listened to this episode now that I have actual functional DSL. Also glad that I got a mention, even if my mention only came from a mention about Landon that came from a mention of BotCon drinking. But who doesn't like BotCon drinking?
