Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode features your always exceptional, sometimes sober host, ScottyP, the very metal xRotorstormx, dark horse Megatronus, and the ever winsome RodimusConvoy13.

Oh, and this pretty popular author you may have heard of stops by: James Roberts! Sit back and enjoy as Va'al and Scotty P cut up, hang out, and wax philosophical with this very special guest.

Episode #113 "Signal to Noise" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Spoilers Abound! This episode contains spoilers for all of the following: Episodes 1 and 2 of the new Robots in Disguise cartoon, Transformers #39, and More Than Meets The Eye #s 1-39. This is your one and only warning.

First we change things up with some long awaited cartoon talk. The first two episodes of Robots in Disguise have premiered, and most of the Twincast crew has seen most of the episodes. Where does RID fall in the constellation of its many cancelled predecessors? Underbite ate WHAT? Listen and find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Bumblebee doesn’t always speak, but when he does, he’s Batman Beyond.


Something momentous is coming. Wait, no, it’s already here: Combiner Wars #1 (otherwise known as Transformers #39). Sit back as we discuss Starscream’s bodies, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed Swindle, our varied and shifting opinions of Livio Ramondelli’s art style, and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Heeeeeeeeeere’s Offroad!


Then, we have a very special treat for our listeners – an interview with none other than James Roberts of More Than Meets The Eye fame.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
We insisted he do the interview with the jacket on.


If you just came here for the interview, you can find it at 47:30 of the file, wherein our brave host Scotty P and devious News-Staff-slash-resident-comics-expert Va’al inherit the wind:

  1. What schemes has Roberts unleashed in his travels back to pre-war Cybertronian society?
  2. Time travel paradox?

    Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
    Paradox schmaradox… at least until a certain briefcase is involved.

  3. Remain in the Light was an awesome arc and powerful story, made more powerful by… prose?
  4. Roberts shows us his love for music, and for the growing More Than Meets the Eye community.
  5. Which (T-Rex) characters should we expect, which are gold, and which are big ole black holes?
  6. The Decepticon Justice Division finally returns – oh, the humanity, err *ahem* morality.

    Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
    Bird, Dragon, or Bird-Dragon? Why not both Zoidberg?

Our sincerest "Thank You" greetings to Mr. Roberts for lending his time to the show, and for the amazing content at that! We hope you all enjoy listening to the interview as much as we did conducting it.

After that, we return to our traditional comfort zone: upcoming Transformers toys. Images of the new, simplified Cyber Series sub-line took us all by surprise. What do we think of these 7” figures? Are they a welcome addition to the Generations fold, or more of the same? This is also the part where you learn another terrible Twincast secret: We don't know how to read good, and want to learn to do other things good too.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Just don’t take away our Generations, man.


Platinum Edition Blitzwing and Astrotrain are Awesome and/or the Worst Thing Ever. Is Platinum Blitzwing an homage to Shattered Glass or Flywheels? What’s with that orange on Astrotrain? Will the Twincast crew be picking these up? While we decide, check out Seibertron’s awesome galleries of G1 Astrotrain and Blitzwing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Alpha Bravo, is that you?


In other Platinum Edition news, the long awaited Coneheads are being reissued. Now this is something the Twincast crew can get excited about… if the price is right. New Platinum set, same question: will the Twincast crew be picking these up? Better yet, can you spot the differences between these newbies and the originals? Check out Seibertron’s galleries of G1 Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet to try your hand (or rather, your eye).

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Sticker shock?


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
No complaints. Really!


And remember, send any complaints, rants, and cease & desist orders to IHateRazorclaw@seibertron.com before the next episode.

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertron.com member AzT, we have confirmed listings for the Hasbro Platinum Edition Reissue Transformers G1 Insecticon set from Kmart.com for $79.99! We've already seen these show up at Toys'R'Us in Canada, but if anyone else in the North American area waited out on the prices, this may be the news piece for you. You can check them out below in some official photography, and compare them to the pictorial review here!

The Insecticons are among the most devious of all Decepticon allies. Pure mercenaries, they will join the battle only when it serves their own purposes, and usually only if they are offered large stacks of Energon cubes in return for their allegiance. Insecticon Bombshell, Kickback, and Skrapnel were the first Insecticons found on Earth, and the first to be lured to the Decepticon cause.

This sneaky trio of Insecticons figures are just the mercenaries for your Transformers adventures! Your Skrapnel, Insecticon Bombshell and Kickback figures all have unique powers, and they all come with blasters and Energon cubes to pay them for their attacks. Whether they’re in insect mode or robot mode, the Transformers action will be epic!

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Sabrblade, we have our first glimpse of the newest addition to the Rescue Bots roster: High Tide

Here's what Sabrblade had to share:

Sabrblade wrote:Teaser video for newcomer High Tide... with most of the footage being from older episodes and the only new footage being of High Tide himself at the very end.

High Tide will make his debut in the show in episode 68 (season 3 episode 16), "Turning the Tide".
An old friend of Optimus arrives to train the Bots in ocean rescues.

We had previously reported on a new Transformers "cyber" line which featured simplified Transformers toys of G1 characters. These came in 11 and 7 inches (each had their own Bumblebee). The facebook page Cybergeek's alliance has new images featuring all 7 inch figures from this new Cyber Battalion line (which were initially from the Transformers Columbia facebook page). Below you will see images of Cyber Battalion 7 inch Megatron, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Optimus (first time we see him) and Starscream which happens to the same mold previously found as a prototype at the Children's Museum exhibit. This confirms that the prototype found there was of an upcoming figure instead of a discarded one. Images of the boxes are also available, and each lets us know how many steps are involved in transforming the figure. Please give us your thoughts on this new line now that we have clearer images (mirrored below).
