The Transformers Robots in Disguise 2015 galleries keep coming your way with the most anticipated figures of the line thus far: the warrior class. This is the class that is most representative of the deluxe class. Also, these figures are the most collector oriented, according to Hasbro, since they are the most articulated figures from the line. Our new high quality gallery inductees include Bumblebee, Steeljaw, Strongarm and Grimlock.

When you are done checking out these guys, you can also check out our galleries of the Robots in Disguise 2015 Legion class toys and Robots in Disguise 2015 3-step toys.

Click on any of the below images to see the full galleries and stay tuned right here at Seibertron.com for more Robots in Disguise 2015 galleries as well as many more Transformers galleries to come.

It's the holiday season, and we here at Seibertron.com are gearing up for it. That's not to say we've forgotten you the people! As an early Christmas gift, Seibertron.com adds a big gallery for the little guys: it's the newly released Masterpiece MP-21 Bumblebee and Exo-Suit Daniel Witwicky! Thirty years after his debut, Bumblebee finally receives an officially-licensed, fully faithful update, and features a face-changing gimmick, including a neutral face, a smiling face, and, if you were lucky to have preordered from Amazon Japan, a battle mask that homages his original Generation One toy. Packed with Bumblebee is Daniel Witwicky in the futuristic Exo-Suit that was used prominently throughout the original 1986 animated film and the space opera that was Season Three-onward. Check out our preview images below, and if you would like to see the full galleries, click either the links or the images to be taken to them!

Fresh and energized before an inevitable turkey-coma, the Twincast / Podcast is back to present our latest episode. Join host Scotty P as he sits down with the mysterious Punch, as well as our second potential new friend, SW's Silverhammer.

Episode #106 "McCarthyism" 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.

We start out by taking a look at the potentially not as easy to get MP Exhaust and his battle against the forces of Philip Morris and the US Government. Will the Decepticons succeed in driving the cast to chain smoke for the rest of the episode? Or will the Truth campaign prevail? Neither of these things are addressed as we pick apart this tale of when the worlds of legal agreements and import Japanese Masterpiece Transformers collide.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Smoooooooke.


We then take a trip back into the Movieverse and take a look at the awfully tempting paint job of Takara Tomy's AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime. Is this a case of taking advantage of lower costs, or a premium piece that the cast will be avoiding?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
You will buy me, or I will kill you.


Generations takes center stage next when we have a chat about the initial Combiner Wars wave now that there are official images from Hasbro of these upcoming toys. Find out who's happy, who's soured, and who just takes things as they are.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Crotch elbows got nothin' on chest shoulders.


In our special topic of sorts for the episode, we take a look at some older toys that have worked their way back into our hearts over the years. What toys have you re-discovered a love for lately? Maybe it's something you didn't appreciate before, or maybe something completely ignored years and years ago. Either way, let us know what kind of Transformers stuff you've either re-discovered or newly discovered recently by replying to this post. It doesn't have to be all about toys either!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Sailing back into your heart, and the world of the living.


We then move on to comics talk (starts at 55:21, skip to 1:22:56 or so to avoid spoilers), first by exploring the return of Shane McCarthy to the Transformers world in this month's Drift: Empire of Stone #1. Does Drift return to bring the fandom its favorite thing? We don't think so, plus, yours truly gets all hypocritical with the artwork given how Regeneration One went, so tune in for that fun and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Drift's a dandy guy, doing dandy things, in space.


Then we move on to the latest chapter in the complex space opera landscape of More Than Meets the Eye #35. Has the cast had enough of this time travel business? And what's Brainstorm been up to? Full on spoiler warning continues for this section, so be warned!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Get the getaway car, Counterpunch, he's figured out the show!


On a somber and/or cynical note, we chat about the layoffs at Jagex, the company responsible for the Transformers Universe MMO game that never quite got into the air. Listen in to our compelling discussion as no one is surprised by this turn of events.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
A visual representation of hopes for this project.


We then finish off with some Bragging Rights. Prepare to be dazzled by our tens of collective additions!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Lots of Maketoys in this one.


That wraps things up for another episode! We sincerely hope you enjoy this one.

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.

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?
