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.

Join us here at Seibertron.com for first Japanese distribution of the Generations Nightbeat mold - in our newest gallery instalment! In the Japanese G1 series Masterforce, GoShooter was originally a Head Master, but in this iteration his human companion Shuta will be playing the part of a Minicon/Targetmaster borrowed from Generations Blazemaster, and the figure was the winner of a Million Publishing fan poll way way back.

We've posted the Seibertron.com galleries for the sadly badly released (if at all) Age of Extinction Power Attacker Claw Crush Junkheap just the other day - so why not double-dip, and take a look at the embedded video review below, courtesy of our very own site owner Seibertron? Includes comparisons to the other figures in the line (such as Bumblebee and Vehicon Power Attackers), various Voyagers and Deluxes; check it out!

Seibertron.com is proud to present our newest gallery:

Age Of Extinction Power Attackers Claw Crush Junkheap

Remember Dark Of The Moon? (Of course you do!) Remember the scene when the Decepticons make their appearance in D.C. and everyone wanted that awesome Waste Management garbage truck bot? (It was quite cool, actually.) Well, sadly we didn't get one then, but we're finally getting one now! In a special arrangement with Waste Management, Hasbro has been given the rights to affix the WM company logo on a Decepticon figure and that figure is Power Attackers Junkheap! A few years late, but better late than never, eh?

A different take on the Waste Management garbage truck bot was used in Age Of Extinction, they were created by KSI and the three components formed the garbage truck, in the film and they had an on screen appearance lasting less than 10 seconds. (Sadly.) So, the figure we've been waiting for is actually based off of one component of a three bot vehicle.

Sadly, he's packed one to a case and that case is part of the final assortment of Age Of Extinction figures, so chances are that most retailers probably won't be carrying this assortment of figures, meaning both Junkheap and his wave mate Vehicon (which you can see, here) are going to be extremely difficult to find, and even more so for a good price.

While you search for this guy (and Vehicon), take a moment to check out his gallery here on Seibertron.com and check back tomorrow for our exclusive video review of the figure, so you can see his Claw Crush gimmick in action! We will be posting the review on our front page, so make sure to come back!

Without further ado, click on any of the images below to see the full gallery:

My fellow Seibertronians, lend me your listening devices. As News Admin of Seibertron.com, I am always looking for the best volunteers to contribute as part of the news staff, and it is time to open up the call again. With 2015 getting into swing, a new animated series just airing, big toy reveals happened, two toy fairs in the sack but plenty of events to still come, we could really use some extra hands on deck.

What we're looking for are fellow fans, active members of the boards and keen enthusiasts of one or multiple aspects of the franchise, from comics to cartoons to toys and other collectables, you name it. You'd be able to tap into your own knowledge pool to present news items, as well as receive support from everyone currently on staff.

But let's take it systematically, shall we?

Requirements:

  1. Knowledge of and love for the Transformers brand - Even if something isn't your cup of tea, you'll need to keep up with and hunt for any piece of news, no matter how trivial, regarding the Transformers.
  2. Dedication to the hobby and the position - You will be a volunteer. The incentives that come with the position are what you can make of it, be it contacts, a name for yourself for your reporting and news sourcing, or previews at upcoming figures.
  3. Must be an active member of the Seibertron.com community - You must be an active member of our community, and you must be willing to continue to post on the forums regularly after joining. Staff members of other Transformers fansites are not eligible.
  4. Good writing skills - What it says on the tin. We are an English resource for Transformers news, and need good writing and reading skills to effectively communicate news to the fandom.
  5. A clean Disciplinary board record - Having a warning doesn't preclude you from applying, but we will be looking over your board history.
  6. Team first mentality - Remember, you will be an official part of Seibertron.com. You will have several perks that come with the job, but are speaking for Seibertron.com at all times while a member of staff.





How to apply:

If you feel like you meet all of the requirements listed above, please email me directly at vaal@seibertron.com. Include name, geographical location and time zone, language skills, link to Seibertron.com profile, and a brief introduction to yourself and why you think you would make a good addition to the Seibertron.com team.


Deadline:

Deadline for applications is 31st March 2015 and we will not accept any more after that time.


The position comes with full News Crew privileges and a Seibertron.com staff email, and will include both a training and a test period for you to develop your skills and for us to assess your abilities. We will not turn down anyone without good reason.


Good luck, and thank you for applying!

This Friday, Seibertron.com is proud to present some refreshed galleries to older installations for Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Menasor and Superion! The Stunticons, making up most of Wave 2 in the Motormaster Voyager and Offroad, Breakdown and Dead End Deluxes, plus Legends Blackjack, join Wave 1 Dragstrip to form the horned gestalt with a sword, and just in time for next week's IDW Opening Salvo.

Similarly, the last addition from Wave 2 to the Aerialbots, Air Raid, can finally become a limb for Silverbolt's torso mode, and together with Alpha Bravo, Skydive and Firefly, plus Legends Powerglide, become Cybertron's (and Starscream's?) main defence. Click on any image below to view the full galleries, updated and reframed, and now including even more comparison shots with previous versions of the characters from G1!
