You see the title. You know the show. You can talk Transformers all day. You hear the Twincast crew talking about stuff where you've got a take, and you've just got to get it out. Is that you?

If so, the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast may be in need of you! No one is permanently leaving the show, but as your ears may have been able to tell, some of our longtime regulars have grown-up, responsible adult type stuff to do that's taken away from the time they can spend podcasting. Due to this, we're looking to bring on one new regular cast member. Potentially, we'll add more than one, but that's only if we're just blown away by more than one applicant.

Here are the qualifications for a potential cast member:

  1. An absolute love for the Transformers brand - Not just the toys, not just the comics, not just the shows, not just the movies, not just - well, you get the picture. Even if something isn't your favorite, you'll need to keep up with the latest and greatest and be ready to discuss it. Our show is known, as least partly, for the depth of knowledge of the cast, and new crew should keep up that standard.
  2. Drive and desire to make the show better every episode - This is purely volunteer work and every episode will come with some responsibility. No one on the show gets to show up, record, and forget about it. You must be driven to actively contribute and help make this the best Transformers podcast on the internet.
  3. An outgoing personality - Not much explanation required here. Shy personalities need not apply. Have to have the ability to keep up a long conversation and be able to treat occasional guests like they're old friends.
  4. Ability to have fun, opinionated arguments while never losing your cool - We don't all agree on everything, and that's awesome! Anyone coming on to the show needs to be able to get into a good, intelligent debate, and keep it professional. If you get angry and irrational during arguments over opinions on Transformers things, we're not the show for you.
  5. Team first mentality - We're not looking for the next celebrity. We're looking for a piece of a team that can contribute to the whole of that team. If you're looking at this and your first thought is that it'd be a great way to plug your Youtube channel or personal blog, then you're probably not what we're looking for.


Here are the absolute, non-subjective, technical requirements:

  1. Must be an active member of the Seibertron.com community - As a cast member on the Twincast, you become part of the Seibertron.com staff. 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 to be a regular Twincast / Podcast cast member, however current Seibertron.com staff are eligible to audition. Regular contributors to other podcasts will be considered on a case by case basis - if you're doing sports talk somewhere, whatever; if you're doing Transformers talk elsewhere, we need to know this.
  2. Weeknight availability - Must be available on most Thursday nights, but also Tuesdays or Wednesdays as needed, with the occasional other night thrown in as needed around holidays. Recordings are around 8:30 PM Eastern time. This one is completely non-negotiable, as availability issues are why we're having to look for new voices!
  3. A good internet connection - You probably need at least a 20 megabit down connection to participate if you live within the continental US. If you live outside of the US, you may need a much stronger network, otherwise the entire production may have difficulty remaining stable and at a good quality.
  4. A Skype account - We won't always use Skype into the future, but for the time being, this is the medium used for call recording.
  5. Decent microphone or headset - As long as it sounds good, it works, but your built in laptop mic, for instance, probably isn't going to cut it. Also, need some decent headphones. Speakers cause echo and may not be used during a recording.


Here's how to apply if you feel you meet all the requirements:

You'll need to record two clips, and send them in to us in mp3 format. One clip should be thirty seconds long, and the other should be one minute long. No other formats will be accepted and no clips where the talking exceeds the time limit will be accepted (if your file starts with three seconds of silence and ends with a couple and it's 1:05, no big deal, but if the time from your first word to the last is over the limit, your entry is disqualified). Yes, these requirements are a test, and you need to pass. Please do not spend money to do this, there's plenty of free software.

For the thirty second clip, give your thoughts on one of the following three topics:

  1. Comics Topic: How do you feel about Megatron's turn to the Autobots, and did you find it handled well stylistically?
  2. Toys Topic: Talk about your favorite toy from Transformers: Age of Extinction's toyline.
  3. General Topic: What is your favorite era (could be a whole era like "Unicron Trilogy" or single period such as "Beast Wars Season 2") of Transformers?

For the one minute clip, answer one of the following questions. Your choice from here should address a different area of the hobby than the thirty second clip. In other words, if you picked a toy topic for the short clip, do not pick a toy topic here, and vice versa:

  1. Comics Topic: What is your favorite era/book/mini-series of Transformers comics, and why?
  2. Toys Topic: Do you think Hasbro's "Combiner Wars" theme for 2015 will help combat potential sales lost to third party companies?
  3. General Topic: What keeps you interested in the Transformers?

Each clip should be recorded as if the host has prompted you to answer it on the show. Once you have them ready, send me a Private Message here on the forums to let me know that you're interested. This will allow us to verify that you're an active community member here. Once we've done that, you'll be sent an email address to send the actual clips to, and that's it!

Deadline:

Deadline for entries is 6 PM Eastern Time on November 9th, 2014 and we will not accept any more submissions after that time.

Judging:

All interested candidates will be contacted by November 12th at the very latest. At that time you'll either be moving on to the next phase of consideration described below, or we'll let you know that we won't be moving forward in having you on the show.

We'll pick our favorite 2-4 clips (more if there are more really good submissions, less if there aren't), and then those folks will, one by one, get to appear on an episode for a tryout. This tryout will be the ultimate criteria used in final judging. Depending on the number of folks we want to audition, there may be one person auditioning on an episode, or we may have someone audition for an hour, then we'll have them leave and bring someone else in for other segments. Just depends on what we get and what feels like the right thing to do when we cross that bridge.

There's no set criteria for judging the folks that audition, it will come down to a vote by the seven current members of the Twincast crew. Chemistry is everything, you may be the next big thing in Transformers podcasting, but if you don't have chemistry with us, you just don't have chemistry with us. Seibertron (Ryan Y.) has final approval and veto authority, since, you know, he owns the site! Of course, even though the final decision is in our hands, listener feedback in the podcast thread for the episode(s) where audition(s) occur might sway our opinions.

Good luck, and we look forward to hearing from everyone that applies!


Disclaimer: An offer to join the Twincast team stemming from this event does not guarantee any permanent arrangement. If circumstances occur that lead to any requirements not being met in the future, performance (real or perceived) after audition period drops below an unacceptable standard, or if responsibilities beyond recording your voice on the show are not completed, invitations to appear on future episodes may be revoked.

Today we have a set of galleries seven years in the making, due to their continuity and toyline issues in terms of categorisation: feast your eyes on Generation 1 1988 Headmasters and Masterforce Headmaster Juniors. These new additions to Seibertron.com's repository feature a number of repurposed US releases, including Cab, Wilder, Bullhorn and Cancer, along with Go-Shooter and updated Minerva with her Transtector. Why have both the US and the Japan releases all in the same group shots and comparisons, you ask? Well, they're such a small exception to the rule where the character is the same toy, and yet so radically different - this was the best way to handle them.

You may recognise this rationale from the Japanese Generations book from 2001, in which the same shots were used of toys who were different characters under Takara than they were for Hasbro, specifically the Headmaster Juniors and the Seacons. What really changes are the poses, but the figure is the same. But why not check it out for yourself by clicking on any of the images below?

Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host for the evening, ScottyP, along with Jon 3.0 and Rotorstorm. Tonight we'll be discussing one glorious Masterpiece figure, the final countdown for the HUB, Hasbro taking over the world, and our hero finally getting a well deserved award.

Episode 102 "Hidden Mickeys" 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.

(00:19 - 15:55)
After months of waiting and slowly forgetting we pre-ordered him, Mastpiece Wheeljack is finally here and he is just...PERFECT!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #102 "Hidden Mickeys"
"Oh my aching cylinders"

(15:55 - 27:46 )
With the release of Age of Extinction, there was something hidding in the special features...an image of a RID Grimlock prototype for the up coming series. Hmm...very interesting. You'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts on Godzilla, er I mean Grimlock :)

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #102 "Hidden Mickeys"

(27:46 - 47:55)
Sad news came to us over the last week and that was the announcement of The HUB Network to become Discovery Family Channel on October 13th. What does this mean for the future of the Transformers series? We discuss our thoughts on this change and what we think about the future.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #102 "Hidden Mickeys"

(47:55 - 57:08)
and further proof that Hasbro is slowly taking over the universe.

The TFCC recently released a new comic on their website for free...and well...can someone help a bot out?

P.S. that is what butthurt means ;)

(01:10:58 - 01:22:00)
An awesome event took place last week in celebration of the release of Age of Extinction. The legendary Peter Cullen received a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! We couldn't be happier for Mr. Cullen. Congratulations!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #102 "Hidden Mickeys"

(01:22:00 - 01:43:08)
Closing out the night we talk bragging rights...which this could take a while because we sure went crazy over the last week!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #102 "Hidden Mickeys"

Seibertron.com is proud to present two massive galleries of some very rare Transformers figures. We were able to get our hands on Generation 2 Combat Hero Optimus Prime and Combat Hero Megatron, both of which were among a slew of products that were canceled in 1995. These versions are repaints of Hero Optimus Prime and Hero Megatron from 1994.

While there aren't many of these unreleased Optimus Primes and Megatron out in the wild, we decided to take this opportunity to open them up and photograph these figures for everyone to enjoy. This might be the first time that this version of Optimus Prime has been photographed like this and it might also be the first time that these two products have been featured together in a gallery. As an added bonus, we even busted out all 6 of the unreleased G2 Gobots for these galleries.

Unfortunately, these figures won't be staying with the Seibertron.com collection. You can find both items in the Seibertron.com Store by clicking on the following links: G2 Combat Hero Optimus Prime on eBay and G2 Combat Hero Megatron on eBay

Without further ado, here are some teaser images from the galleries of Combat Hero Optimus Prime and Combat Hero Megatron for your viewing enjoyment. Feel free to click on any of the images below to view the respective galleries of each figure.

After you check out these galleries, share your thoughts about these figures in our forums by clicking here.

The Blu-ray 3D includes expanded images as seen in IMAX™ theaters.

Mark Wahlberg’s house in this funny piece.

Welcome to the Twincast Podcast Episode 101. Last episode was a celebration, but this episode it's back to business as usual. ScottyP hosts with Seibertron and Tigertrack jaw-jackin' on a Saturday afternoon about the most recent Transformers GENERATIONS toys and NEW comics releases, as well as recent club happenings. We find time to answer a listener question, and we’ll actually take time to discuss the other listener question within the thread for this episode (which you can participate in!).

Oh and one more thing, which is a very cool thing, Jon 3.0 and ScottyP were able to sit down with Garry Chalk... you know the guy who is quite famous for lending his voice to some of the more recent Optimusii in Transformers lore such as Optimus Primal from Beast Wars and Beast Machines, and Armada Optimus Prime (and more!). Tune in for "What’s up Chalk?" in that segment of the Twincast.

Episode #101 "Talkin’ ‘Bout My Generations" 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.

(Remember all times are approximate)

01:10 - 08:21
Have you found Generations Leader Class Jetfire yet? Photography guy Seibertron got his hands on it (and there's a gallery), as well as, Tigertrack. We spend a good 10 minutes talking up the first non-movie related leader class figure released in some time. Gosh he's chromey.

And the podcast crew talks about some of the smaller, but just as important Generations releases like Windblade, Crosscut, Jhiaxus, and Nightbeat. Conversation tends to get a little off track as we delve into things like eHobby exclusives, store exclusives, and the death of encore and G1 reissues.

And we mention Generations Cliffjumper and Gears a too.

1:08:46 - 1:19:21

Our group spends some time ‘ooo-ing’ and ‘aweing’ over the amazing work done by the creative members of the Seibertron community. We looked over some the ‘CREATIVE ROUNDUP’ offerings for that week and spend time giving love to some very talented folks, and their projects.

Here’s the chat with Garry Chalk. Jon 3.0 and ScottyP spend nice 15-20 minutes with the legendary voice. Can’t miss!

SPOILERS
We spend the next 40 minutes just breaking down the current comic offerings from IDW including Robots In Disguise 33, and More Than Meets The Eye 33. Be warned there are heavy plot and character spoilers that happen during the discussion. Spoilers

2:24:34 - 2:33:17
We spend some time on a listener question here as Seibertron is asked once more, “What is it that you hate about 3rd party figures?” The actual question just asked Seibs to share his ‘stance’ on third party figures (Seibertron does not HATE them). And we spend some time discussing the 3rd party offerings and whether HASBRO is going to be able to compete.

A second listener question was brought up, but we’re going to handle it in the discussion topic. Want to chime in with your thoughts? Answer the question below before, or after we do..."Could there be a discussion on the topic of obscure series or characters or series/ characters that could potentially become obscure [since series such as Rid/A/E/C are getting older]?"--you have a thought about this? Hit ‘discuss this’ and share below.

Finally we end with some bragging rights. Here’s a hint, it’s a lot of the new Generations figures, Club Chromedome, and more!!!!!!

Thanks for listening to the Seibertron.com podcast!
