Join Mike (Counterpunch), Ryan (Seibertron), Scotty (Scotty P), and Matt (Tigertrack) as they flex collecting muscles to try to acquire the latest and greatest Transformers toys. This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
In this episode, Ryan and Mike go in to collector nirvana describing what it's like owning the super-awesome collectible that so many now have their hands on ... Metroplex.
A little ol' convention called WONDERFEST happened, and there was some big yellow plasticy Scorponok thing shown on display next to G1 Fortress Maximus. The crew speculate, and wonder what does it actually mean? And then we talk dolls... like CM Corps new addition in Spike and Daniel Exosuits.
Then there's the hunting. Beast Hunters 'Rise of the Predacons' Exclusives, Target resets, Generations comic packs, and more seemed to magically appear all at the same time. Is Target the most consistent retailer for releasing similar toys at similar times in so many stores?
Not only are Beast Hunters toys making news, but the Beast Hunters cartoon showed its final episode, and we share a few thoughts on its finality, Bumblebee speaking, and what comes next for Transformers cartoons.
Believe it or not, the Twincast also had a few moments to talk about the SDCC TF/GI JOE Exclusive Set and how separate entities are having trouble playing nice when it comes to a certain white jet with black and red details, and super-cool fast pack jet engines.

Note from Ryan: This episode was recorded on July 12th, almost a week before SDCC. The craziness and 16+ hour days of Comic-Con prevented this episode from being posted last week and earlier this week. Without further ado, here's Episode #71: "SDCC 2013 Preview" ...
"It's Summertime in northern Michigan..." and everywhere else, even though Kid Rock only cared about the latter, Ryan and Matt discuss vacations, trolls, and yoopers, and then the group gets SERIOUS! Join master of ceremonies Mike (Counterpunch), and the likes of Ryan (Seibertron), Matt (tigertracks 24), and guest-orator Scotty P (Scotty P)! Beat the summer heat and listen to these chaps talk Transformers as the Eve of Sand Diego Comic-Con is upon us.

This iteration of the Twincast talks about the Transformers exclusive toys that are to be available to purchase at SDCC and hopefully, on HASBRO TOY SHOP early next week. We focus mainly on the insanely shiny and gigantic Metroplex; but also talk about 'the pales in comparison, but still nice Shockwave's Lab'; and the "not even Action Masters" vinyl figures set. In case you missed it, Ryan also posted galleries here on Seibertron of all 3 exclusives, including quite a few comparison Metroplex pics between the SDCC Exclusive and the retail HASBRO release. The debate is on as to what version of versions YOU MUST OWN (or not, no pressure)!
You can also hear our thoughts on the Takara Tomy SENATOR RATBAT Generations toy, Toys R Us' Masterpiece Pre-order eBay Auction Oopsies, the newest toys like TT vs. HASBRO Hoist, TT vs. HASBRO Blitzwing and Springer, the new Construct-a-bots Blitzwing in-hand review by Scotty P, and much, much, more!
Two new reveals were on display this afternoon in Hasbro's display area at SDCC. This time around it's the newest versions of the Transformers Prime Weaponizers Bumblebee and Optimus Prime in new Beast Hunters colors, packaging and with new accessories. Bumblebee even comes with a remolded head featuring his mouth! Check out these brand new pics of Talking Bumblebee and Tracker Optimus Prime by clicking here.
SDCC 2013 is still going strong, but for the most part the Transformers news is over. Now that the dust has settled we've had time to load the galleries for Kre-O Transformers, Playskool's Transformers: Rescue Bots, the IDW panel, and as a little bonus Mattel's Masters of the Universe Classics display! Click the titles or any of the images below to view the full galleries.
Seibertron also attended the Jose Delbo panel, which we will be posting shortly complete with images and video. Delbo worked on the original Marvel run of Transformers comics in the late 80's, and will be returning to work on a few pages of IDW Publishing upcoming Transformers: Regeneration One #0. Stay tuned.

Seibertron has just sent us our first look at the Transformers Fan Built Bot, Windblade! The character was designed using fan polls to select various characteristics such as allegiance, gender, alt mode, personality, etc. Hasbro revealed at last month's BotCon that the figure would be a jet, but only showed us a teaser silhouette. Below we have our first looks at her from SDCC 2013. That's right, Windblade is a she! A female Autobot with Samurai aesthetics in robot mode, and VTOL jet alt mode. This character will ultimately receive the full blown toy treatment.
