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!

A we've been mentioning through today, site owner Seibertron was able to make the trip the Children's Museum on Indianapolis, in order to visit the new, Hasbro licensed, Transformers: Robots in Disguise exhibit we reported on a while ago!

If you head below and click on the images provided, you can take a look at a fairly extensive gallery covering the various parts of the history of the Transformers showcased, from interactive features, the prototypes and models on show (from unused toys to BotShots and more), the Soundwave through the ages collection, the vehicles of Movie Optimus Prime and Bumblebee on display, a Beast Wars diorama, a "design a Transformer" area, cartoons running in a room where kids can play with simplified 3 Step Transformers, an area where you can "become a Transformer" by motion-capture controlling a screen Bumblebee, and much much more than meets the eye!

We've seen the confusingly amusing animated shorts for the series, we've seen multiple posts for different parts of the line, and a previous gallery update with the earlier wave - now you can take a proper, full look at some of the Takara Tomy super deformed Q Transformers!

The newest update in the Seibertron.com galleries brings us QT11 Autobot Meister (Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86), QT12 Sunstreaker (Mazda RX-7 FD3S), QT13 Alert (Lamborghini Countach LP500S), and QT14 Smokescreen (Nissan Fairlady Z 280Z-T) in their homage to the Choro-Q line (which you might know as Penny Racers outside of Japan). Click on any image below to view the full works!

Live, from New York, it's a Twincast Podcast Saturday Night! Maybe not quite live or on a Saturday, but it's still our recordings from New York City as yours truly, episode host Scotty P sat down with Seibertron and Diablien/Collecticon/Paul (of RIPT fame and an eternal Friend of Seibertron.com) to discuss the new toys and goings on from the toy industry's largest annual trade show.

Oh, and there's this matter of an interview with the Global Brand Marketing Director for Transformers, Hasbro's Jerry Jivoin!

Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015" 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 hope you'll listen to the entire show, but if you'd like to skip our personal musings and get right to the interview with Mr. Jivoin, you may do so by going to 1:05:48 in the audio file.

We first tackle the big guy himself, Devastator! Now that we've seen this hugely anticipated, hugely sized toy in the flesh, are we more or less impressed? Are the individual bots something living up to expectations? We'll break down everything you ever wanted to know based on our observations, along with a bunch of facts you probably don't care about in the first part of the show.

A certain shade of green


Section something-point-something of the Autobot Code dictates that our next point of discussion is Generations Leader Class Ultra Magnus, popping right out of the pages of the IDW comic series and into our hearts. Listen in as we dissect what we saw of this latest entry into the impressive Generations series Leader Class lineup.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Duly Appointed, indeed


There were yet more cool Generations reveals such as Defensor, Cyclonus, and Legends Class figures. The customization/create-a-character aspect of Combiner Wars comes full circle with these releases. Tune in to hear our thoughts, as well as our condolences to GI Joe fans.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Totally not Onslaught even a little.


Seibertron.com is very proud to present the next segment of the show, an approximately 20 minute interview with Mr. Jerry Jivoin! You'll need to listen in to hear what he has to say about everything from Combiner Wars, more female characters, decisions on paint decos for reissue toys, the west coast dock strikes, whether these Combiners are being made in response to a certain other toy market, and even more!

Our sincere thanks to both Hasbro and Hunter PR for the opportunity to interview Mr. Jivoin on a very busy day in a very busy environment, and on basically zero notice at that! It was a blast to conduct and we hope our listeners and the fan community as a whole enjoy the information shared.

We didn't forget about the new toys from Robots in Disguise. Jazz and Sideswipe Warriors, plus lots of new Minicons will grace store shelves this fall. Find out our thoughts about the upcoming products coming out to support the cartoon show that's coming soon.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Seriously huge.


Since we're all just big kids here, we take a little bit of the show to chat about the upcoming releases for Rescue Bots. Join us as we jump on the boat and don't transform. Wait, what?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Broadside's little cousin


Loyal Subjects vinyls are about to hit their third wave and Toy Fair gave us the opportunity to get a very clear look at them for the first time. Why is Scotty so mad about the case breakdown? You'll find out, plus you'll get to hear the counterpoint which makes for a fun, lively discussion of these Action Vinyls. You can even preorder a case of this upcoming wave from our buddies at RIPT Apparel.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
He can't see anything at all, but can he see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?


Toy Fair brought along far more than we could possibly cover without having a four hour show, so catch the rest as we break down our thoughts on licensed products hitting stores in the next year. Protect your home, keep your spot in a book, and try not to stab yourself with metal if you check out any of this stuff once it's available.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Small in stature, but not in character.


We finish up with an insanely elitist edition of Bragging Rights. The pictures can speak for themselves!

That wraps things up for this very special episode. We sincerely hope you enjoy this one, definitely had a blast on this end putting it together. See you in approximately two weeks as we attempt to get back on to a more "regular" show schedule between now and Botcon.

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!
