Half measures


SillySpringer keeps us rolling with a question about brick and mortar retail. The cast discusses their frequent hunting spots, and we also try to take a quick look ahead at the spring retail season to come.

Reveal the Shtore. For the hunting. What?


Longtime friend of the show Sabrblade offers up our next question. This question is best digested with full context, so to get that, be sure to not only check out our last episode, "The Road to Multiverse" if you haven't already, but read through the discussion that followed! Oh, and yes, you can certainly keep it going if you'd like.

Fiction leads to enabling. Enabling leads to toys. Toys lead to suffering FUN.


Talk then shifts to current events a bit, and things start to get beastly with our thoughts on Sins of the Wreckers Issue 3. What mad theories await, and which of them makes a certain host's expectations of delayed gratification even more painful? Tune in to hear some fun thoughts about the series and this issue while we patiently await the conclusion.

From the gang of writers over at the Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars animated series, we have an update on the status of the scripts and writing for the show: all scripts are in, and Eric Calderon, George Krstic and FJ DeSanto have been shooting some behind the scenes material, probably for both promotion and extra additions to the show! No news yet on the animation side of things, but we will update you as soon as we know.

The TRANSFORMERS are coming to Machinima. In an agreement between Machinima and Hasbro, the TRANSFORMERS world will be brought to life on the many2many programming service that kicks off right smack in the middle of The Combiner Wars.

Via a piece in The Hollywood Reporter, we have some news concerning the creation of a new live Transformers attraction/show, set to arrive in China by 2017. Transformers Live will be a 'cross between an action-adventure spectacle, a theme park attraction and a theatrical show' - you can read more about it below, or head here for the full article!

Optimus Prime and his band of Autobots are set to assemble in the real world — in China.

DMG Entertainment, the China-U.S.-based movie studio and co-producer of Point Break and Iron Man 3, has reached a deal with Hasbro to create Transformers Live. The robotics spectacle, expected to debut in an undisclosed Chinese city in 2017, will be the world's first live-action attraction featuring the toy brand's iconic characters.

The show will be produced by S2BN Entertainment, the live entertainment company behind Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, The Marvel Experience and Rock of Ages.

“Transformers Live will be a cross between an action-adventure spectacle, a theme park attraction and a theatrical show," said Michael Cohl, chairman of S2BN Entertainment, in a statement.

The partners will build a semi-permanent 4,500-capacity venue to house the spectacle, which will deploy a fusion of proprietary robotics technologies, high-tech projection systems and aerial stunt sequences. Sources close to the deal say Beijing is the most likely destination for the show.

"Fans will experience intense action, beautiful visual moments, an emotionally engaging story, lots of humor and rousing music," Cohl added.

You have to give it to Takara, they know how to be ready for an occasion. They are really taking the Beast Wars 20th Anniversary seriously and this latest action of theirs speaks volumes. Takara has just launched its own site for the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars. Of course, there is not much there yet aside from links to previous articles, such as the line drawings for Masterpiece Beast Convoy (Optimus Primal).

Also, it goes without saying that the site is in Japanese and features a lot of text in photos which cannot be translated. The videos are also region locked. This was brought to our attention by fellow Seibertronian, Primal Sabbath!

Via a number of sources across the internet, but converging to an interview that director Michael Bay (and John Krasinski) sat through with Dean Richards of WGN Radio, we have news that the new instalment in the Paramount Transformers live-action movie series will see a return to Chicago during the filming process. While they don't mention too much, Bay did say:

he plans to be back in Chicago sometime later this year. The film is scheduled for a 2017 release, with plans already in the works for two more "Transformers" movies after that. Billion-dollar revenues will do that.

"You going to blow up Michigan Avenue again?" Richards asks Bay in his interview (at the 5:40 mark). "No, we're gonna find a new street," Bay said. "But I love Chicago." And then, referring to some of the city's systemic problems, including gun violence, added dryly: "We'll come in with some Transformers to even it out."


Check out the full interview - which is about 13 Hours - here.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, and Jon 3.0 - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #135 “The Road To Multiverse“ 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 kick off 2016 with a couple intriguing listener questions. First, SillySpringer asks a very relevant toy-related query: Which four deluxes from Combiner Wars are the best? I want to maybe get Cyclonus and slap some random and good limbs on him.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Gotta catch ‘em all!


SW’s SilverHammer blasts us with a comics question: Do you think there will be a point in the story continuity, where the transformers galactic civil war ends? I don't mean where we are now with insurgencies, but a point where there is finality in the war. Or alternatively, do you believe, or would you prefer, that the writers continue the Cybertronain civil war in perpetuity?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Finality.


Next, the Twincast tackles the reintroduction of the Head, err, Titan-Masters gimmick in the Titan Returns line, notably on traditionally non-Headmaster characters. In the words of Rung: how does that make you feel?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Dance, Soundwave, Dance!!!


We turn to the Robots in Disguise animated series. Season 2 looms in the distance, and the Twincast has some strong opinions on what direction certain characters, and the series as a whole, should take.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Wanted: character development.


After the TFCC’s announcement of Shattered Glass Unicron in the Club comic, we thought it would be fun to ask: what do you think of the "multiverse" concept in Transformers? Chaos ensues.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
There can only be one!


We polish off this episode with some bragging rights. This week's theme: your most brag-worthy acquisition from the past month that is not a Generations or Masterpiece.
