It's been in the pipes for quite a long time now, ever since the beginning of the Hasbro Transformers online fan-poll, all the way up to the Seibertron.com teaser gallery and unboxing video. But now, at last, hailing from the Sea of Rust, through the powers of gravity control and flight, crossing boundaries that had not yet been crossed, the team of Torchbearers Rust Renegades get the proper gallery treatment!

Check out below a sample of what you'll find in the galleries for the six members of the Camien team, from leader (but Voyager, reusing the Hot Spot mold) Pyra Magna, to tiny Groove repaint Rust Dust, via definitely not Nightbird Dustup and Jumpstream, and of course, the Alpha Bravo helitwins Skyburst and Stormclash, finishing each other's sandwiches. Click on any of the images to view the full works, including the combined form herself - Victorion!

As a bonus, a full gallery of Combiner Wars Legends Class Wreck-Gar, everyone's favorite Junkion leader, has also been added to our extensive galleries here on Seibertron.com. This time around, Wreck-Gar is a recolor of Legends Class Protectobot Groove but features a new head sculpt complete with Wreck-Gar's traditional facial "hair". Enjoy!

Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host, ScottyP along with Megatronus, Rotorstorm, and Jon3.0! Sit down and relax as we chat our way to recovery.

Episode #143 "The Hangover: Hascon Edition" 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.

Oh Botcon, has it already been 2 weeks since we bid adieu? Wait, hang on, before we start let me grab some Advil...this Botcon hangover is a doozy.

So I'm sure you've listened to our Botcon road trip episodes already, but we decided to take another short trip down memory lane to recap our favorite and most anticipated figures that came out of the Hasbro booth this year.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"
I vant to suck your blood


Wasting no time at all, it was discovered that Hasbro has filed a new trademark, HASCON. Hmmm, I think we all know what this means.

One of the highlights of Botcon 2016 was the one and only Judd Nelson. His Q&A panel certainly did not disappoint.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

Of course, to the excitement of pretty much everyone, Casino Night was brought back this year...along with.... BINGO! Some of the twincast, might have been having a bit too much fun at the auction that night.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

To top things off, the twincast decided to share some of their funniest moment from the weekend.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

To totally change things up, we throw you a curve ball and jump into a round of Botcon bragging rights. Tune in to hear what our favorite con finds were.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

Takara decided to tease up with an image of what looks to be MP Inferno. Is this really just a tease or will there soon be a big red fire truck sitting on our MP selves?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

So in other news, Paramount is full steam ahead with Hasbro's cinematic universe. Do you think something like this will work with the Hasbro brands, like it does for DC and Marvel? You'll have to listen in to hear what we think.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

Then out of nowhere, we finally have some updates (if you can even call it that) from Machinima about their upcoming Combiner Wars cartoon.

Up next, we head on over to the boards for a listener question. Thanks Amelie!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

We close out this episode with some discussion on the upcoming mobile game Transformers: Earth Wars

Don't let the ominous title fool you, this episode is still all about Botcon. In the final part of our trilogy of episodes surrounding the final Botcon as we know it, we catch back up with the now Chicago-bound sisterhood of the travelling bots as they reflect on their convention experience.

Episode #142 “Botcon 2016 Part 3: The Last One“ 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.

Did you think it was over? It ain't over until Dr. Va'al, Seibertron, and Starscream return to say it's over! More post-BotCon thoughts from this crew await, are you in for the long haul? The three randomly assorted hard candies discuss, in spite of the elements and the sore throats, the various BotCon souvenirs, from the Dawn of the Predacus box set to the single toys - Megatron, Unit-3, Tigatron, Airazor, the Reflector 3-pack - the highlights, the surprises, the disappointments.

Can'tmera


They touch upon the various hauls, including comics and comics art as well as toys, and the differences between conventions, running by the gigantonormous dealer room (can you tell who's typing this section, by now?). Spending some good time on the artist alley population, from Hayato Sakamoto to Alex Milne, Sara Pitre-Durocher to Robby Musso, and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #142 "Botcon 2016 Part 3: The Last One"
Also, Energon Spaghetti is canon


Other topics discussed, of course, were the various panels that included reveals for the coming part of the year, from the Hasbro Brand panel, with Scrounge (!) and Overlord (!!) in the pipes, to the TFCC roundtable, featuring MP Ratbat, GI Joe crossovers, and Counterpunch taking over (much to our own Counterpunch's joy).

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #142 "Botcon 2016 Part 3: The Last One"
..there is only ME


They start speculating on the future of the Club, now that FunPub is DonePub, and it would actually be really interesting to hear what listeners think Hasbro should do with the concept - and with any possible incarnation of BotCon. Make sure to drop your suggestions in the comments!

Before the segment is over, though, they also make sure to note the highest points of the event: the people who attend, year after year or for the very first time, what really makes the whole experience what it is.

---

The show ends with a short editorial segment from yours truly. If this is the end of Botcon, let's remember it fondly, and find hope in the possibilities of the future.

Welcome to part two of the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast's coverage of Botcon 2016. This episode stars 'the Michiganders who stayed at home', RodimusConvoy13 and Tigertrack. We discuss our reactions to the images of the Botcon attendee exclusives and the reveals at the annual big Botcon Hasbro panel. Speaking of Hasbro, this interview also features an on-site interview with members of the Hasbro Transfomers brand team!

Episode #141 “Botcon 2016 Part 2: Homers“ 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.

Our discussion agenda was simple... it went a little like this...BOTCON BOTCON BOTCON...botcon, botcon, BOTCON.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #141 "Botcon 2016 Part 2: Homers"

From the early displays on Friday, to the new reveals on Saturday, we discuss Titan Returns, the Platinum set exclusives-- especially the new Autobot Warriors Pack--, the new set of club subscription figures, and we spend a heavy dose of time comparing the HASBRO vs. UNITE WARRIORS COMPUTRON sets with the real winner being, us, the fans (unless you wanted individual releases then well...)!

"It is indeed, just a repaint of that G1 pretender shell that so few people have..."

A couple of other topics that are also touched on are what we wanted to see, or wanted to see more of, and didn't, including those little teasers that we we were given: once at the end of the slide show presentation (prior to 'see you in 2017') and once on the cross-sell of a new package (Lio Kaiser combined).

After we wrap up those proceedings, there's more!

Counterpunch, Scotty P, and more of the charming accent of Dr. Va'al ask some burning questions to members of the Transformers brand team. A big thanks to Hasbro, as well as our friends at Rogers & Cowan for making this happen!

Botcon 2016 weekend has come and gone, and the Seibertron.com Twincast is proud to present the first of three episodes of material recorded during our convention adventures. Part 1 is all about the road trip, with recordings from the Twincast crew while driving to Louisville.

Episode #140 “Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down“ 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.

Your Botcon recap show starts with none other than the journey to the show itself! Seibertron, Starscream, and Dr. Va'al himself hit the road from Chicago to Louisville and recap the history of the show. But first, comics talk.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Managed to be relevant to the Botcon set after all!


How much comics talk? Well, it all starts out with Megatron: Origin. Dr. Va'al leads a deep dive through how that foundation has led to the current events with Megatron in More Than Meets The Eye.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Hot Rod's just ready for Botcon.


Road trip conversations can, and do, go anywhere. Even Pretenders come up along the way, with thoughts about what could happen if they mastered all the things. Ultra-Ultra Pretenders? That's right, they'll frame up the ongoing conversation about the Titan Master gimmick.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
No hiding this head.


The Botcon set itself then takes over the focus, including the Dawn of the Predacus boxed set and attendee freebie Terrorsaur.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Red Dawn


A look back at Botcons of the past continues the conversation. Relive memories of the past with all your Botcon pals like Deathsaurus, Tyrese, Clench, and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
From figures to the red carpet and back again.


That wasn't the only crew headed out on the open road. Scotty P and Razorclaw0000 wearily pass the last hour of their road trip from Raleigh by recording thoughts just for you. You'll have to excuse the quality on this one, as the rough road and some otherworldly environments took their toll on the recorder's mic.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Artist's interpretation of totally real events from the road trip.


After the brief origin story, current events are back in focus as we speculate on toys seen but not yet owned, those being this year's Botcon souvenir figures. Listen to what we're thinking about them mere hours before they're in our possession.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
I mean, at least this mode is cool, right?


A big part of Botcon is the dealer and exhibitor room. ScottyP and Razorclaw go through their wishlists, with some items that are painful to hear about now that the convention has passed. When will Black Mach appear? What big ticket things were targets? How many Mini-cons will not be found? All this, and a cow pooping on the highway.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
MORE Seekers!?


After a slightly boring look at the populations of Louisville as compared to our hometowns, we think about what we'd do differently for the future of Transformers conventions. After listening to this, you'll probably be glad we're leaving these things to the experts!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
We just want to keep rock alive.


Stay tuned very soon for Episode 141, which will feature some of our more traditional convention news reactions and coverage.
