Fellow Seibertronian Bumblebee21 found the beginning of the marketing campaign from Paramount for Transformers: The Last Knight - starting on Twitter and Instagram - which featured a message in morse code over a United States State Department torn image, with the writing 'File no. 21.63 Date: 10'. The message translates as 'I M COMING FOR YOUHUMANS.MAY31'.

What are we to expect from this? Speculate away in the Energon Pub!

The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with all the Mayhem of May. Join Counterpunch, RodimusConvoy13, Rotorstorm, and Scotty P for an episode filled with laughs, drafts, and even a giraffe?

Episode #145 “May Mayhem“ 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.

The ongoing Beast Wars re-watch kicks off the show as the cast takes a look at Episodes 12 and 13 of the first season. "Victory" brings us full blown cartoon villain plans gone awry, as no Predacon could ever predict a gorilla with a jetpack coming to save the day. Even viewers could never predict a ship crash landing from right where it took off. We take a look at "Dark Designs" as well, featuring Tankor.

If this gets you in the Beast Wars mood, why not travel back to 2014 and check out the end of Twincast / Podcast Episode 101 where Jon 3.0 and Scotty P got a few minutes to talk with Garry Chalk, voice of Optimus Primal!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's, oh. That's weird.


With summertime upon us, and most of the major sports in the US winding down, it can only mean one thing: it's about to be draft season! (Well, and baseball season if you like afternoon naps.)

To honor the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars, we proudly present the first ever Twincast character draft. Each podcaster gets three rounds to assemble a team. You'll have to tune in to find out if there were any surprise picks at the top, league-shattering trades, and if Tom Brady somehow managed to cheat to win this too.

I just don't think the Browns are going to be any better with these animals running the farm.


This week also yielded two brand new Transformers comics from IDW Publishing. The cast starts their look at these books with the next chapter in "All Hail Optimus", with The Transformers #53

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Or at the least, some fans' devotion to this book.


The Counterpunching of recent Transformers comics fiction continues as the cast takes a decidedly critical lens to the pages of More Than Meets The Eye #53. Wipe off the afterglow of all those emotions and prepare for literary critique as the pacing of the "Dying of the Light" arc is called into question.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
When Counterpunch tells you what he thinks of this issue.


Sometimes you need some music for when you're reading those comics, and some other times you just want to jam out to the tunes from over the years that remind you of your favorite hobby. With the recent release of "Roll Out", Hasbro and Sony Music want you to do just that. But does this experiment in cross-medium marketing work out, or are we left yearning for more? Spoiler: We're left yearning, it's actually really bland.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
See those eyes? There's no soul there either.


We keep up the music discussion a little bit longer and think of how we'd give Transformers media a soundtrack of our own. This conversation goes in lots of different directions, including some mention of our favorite Transformers AMVs (Anime Music Videos) from Youtube.

Be sure to us a link to your favorite Transformers AMV, or to what your "soundtrack" for Transformers sounds like by replying to this thread!

Crawling in his skin.


May Mayhem descends upon the show, with in-hand impressions of Combiner Wars Victorion at the ready. In addition to the cast's thoughts about this new fan-built combiner, you can listen as yours truly is as dense as can be in trying to figure out how to fix Pyra Magna.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Leave a piece out and she'll call you a diode-blowing dimwit. If you're into that sort of thing.


But wait, has May Mayhem transformed all on its own? Has it instead become Halloween Havoc? For most of us, it sure looks that way, but at least there's Seibertron.com's gallery of Combiner Wars Deluxe Groove to tide us all over in the meantime.

Black Tracks, aka "Loud Pedal" is the next entry in the Transformers Masterpiece series headed our way this summer. Find out if we're looking forward to this repaint and retooling of Masterpiece Tracks and how we think this release measures up to previous Tokyo Toy Show exclusives such as Masterpiece Tigertrack.

Plus don't forget that you can walk down memory lane to look at the reissue version of Black Tracks, the inspiration for Loud Pedal right here on Seibertron.com.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Ready to get loud and shout out for more May Mayhem!


With Robots in Disguise Season 2 having wrapped up a couple weeks ago, the cast takes a short look at the progression of the show from Season 1 to now. Plus, we consider which characters from the cast of the show could make cool toys for the Transformers: Generations line, like Lockdown and Lugnut once did themselves.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
More RID Decepticons is just a good thing regardless.


One more segment closes out the show, as we get Counterpunched into doing bragging rights. Find out which treasures we recently picked up - they may not be what you expect!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Like Colorforms, but not.


We'll be back soon for more adventures in Transformers podcasting.

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.

Our latest exclusive artwork content from the folks over at Space Ape - behind the soon-to-be-released Transformers: Earth Wars mobile game - come in the form of one of the Predacons: Tantrum! Read up on his bio in the game below, and check out the sweet render.

Tantrum would rather crash right through a problem, then stamp all over it, rather than apply reason or logic. Get in his way, annoy him, or — if you're an Autobot — just exist, and his overheated rage is a sight to see. Steam literally puffs out of his nasal ducts before he charges. These chronic fits of anger may be down to a loose connection somewhere, but no way is Tantrum letting anyone mess with his head!

Seibertronian moderator Rodimus Prime has kept an eye out for Transformers: The Last Knight news, and found some over on ComingSoon.net - it appears that initial photography has started in Cuba, as we reported would happen not long ago! Find out more here, and below, where we've included Michael Bay's shot of a lime green car - a new Transformer, or just something lying around the location?

Transformers News: Transformers: The Last Knight Starts Filming in Cuba


Production has begun on the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight and they’ve set up shop in an unlikely place: Cuba! Director Michael Bay made the announcement on his Instagram page, noting they were only the second American production to be filming in Cuba (following the upcoming Fast 8 ).

The Transformers: The Last Knight cast includes the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as newcomer Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show, Neighbors) is also set to play an unspecified leading role. Josh Duhamel will also reprise his role of Lieutenant Colonel Lennox from the first three films.

Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to come stateside on June 6 in Detroit, where Transformers: Age of Extinction was also shot.

Michael Bay returns to the director’s chair for the film, which is set to be written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the sequel.

Combined, the previous four Transformers films have brought in over $3.7 billion at the global box office with 2014’s Age of Extinction the second-highest grossing in the series. Current plans call for Transformers: The Last Knight to be released on June 23, 2017. It will be followed by a Bumblebee spin-off film in 2018 before Transformers 6 arrives in 2019.

The rumoured May 24th came and while some online only retailers had Transformers Combiner Wars Groove, the bulk of retailers were no different from the day before, with no Combiner Wars Groove in stock. Hopefully this changes soon and we have some hope from a Facebook post by Hasbro saying that Groove is coming to retailers. No retailers are precised but the fact that this message is coming out now in such a public way, indicates that he could be as available as Quickslinger and Breakneck were last year (which was everywhere toys are sold online). They even include a stop motion video of Groove. At least it brings some comfort to have that extra publicity push past the rumoured street date, meaning that the release date might still be to come before the end of May.

Here is what the post says:

If it moves, it must be Groove. And in May Deluxe Groove is hitting retailers.

The latest Seibertron.com exclusive character render and bio from the Hasbro/Backflip/Space Ape mobile game Transformers: Earth Wars is none other than the first fan-built character, making her third appearance in a different medium (after comics and cartoon): Windblade! Check out the image and bio below - as we can tell you that the game will finally roll out on June 2nd (or so we're told).

Windblade is valiant, dutiful and full of conviction... to a fault.The fault being she can be too trusting, too idealistic, almost to the point of naivety. It sometimes drives her closest Autobot allies to distraction, but in a pinch there's no one more committed to the cause or energetic in battle. An experienced swordswoman, she also has the rare ability to communicate with the vast and ancient race of Metrotitans.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host Megatronus, prodigal host Counterpunch, and one-time host RodimusConvoy13 - listen in as we discuss the latest (with perhaps a lag of 5 days) news, toys, and more.

Episode #144 "Don't Touch That Dial" 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 warm up with some casual chat about Optimus & Me, an editorial piece about an immigrant girl finding a role model and social shield in your hero and mine, Optimus Prime. None of the cast members were little girls, unfortunately, so we discuss where we found meaning in the original 'toon. Megatronus likes Megatron. Go figure.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
Sometimes, we can all use a hand. A giant, robot hand.


Back to the 90s we go. That's right, it's time for another segment dedicated to re-watching Beast Wars episodes. We take a quick look at episodes 9, 10, & 11, wherein Rattrap saves the day, Optimus goes full Primal, and no one goes home.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
Beast Wars never gets old.


As we discuss MP Optimus Primal and rumors of an upcoming MP Cheetor, we decide it's prime time for SureShot18's query: "With the possibility of the MP Beast Wars line continuing and the disappointment on the boards in Cheetor maybe being the next one, what would your ideal MP Beast Wars release schedule be for the Season 1 characters?"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
No hairy cat butts.


Speaking of Masterpiece, a certain red fire truck has been confirmed. MP Inferno will becoming to quench a fire near you, or maybe just keep Red Alert from going bonkers again. What does the cast think of this latest entry in the ever-growing money-making MP machine?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
He's ash grey! Get it!? Get it??? Sigh.


We get into some comic talk: Sins of the Wreckers #4, The Transformers #52, and More Than Meets The Eye #52 are on the chopping block. There's a lot to discuss in each arcs' penultimate issue, and you'll just have to tune in to get it all. In the meantime, we bring you this moment, by Rodimus:

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
Buuuuuuurrrrn.


Generation is up next, and we start with Unite Warriors Sky Reign. Rumor has it this set will deviate quite a bit from the Hasbro release. WIll the Twincast double dip for that tantalizingly likely Ratchet? While you chew on that, check out these awesome comparisons of the upcoming Computron sets. There's truly something for everyone.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
Never underestimate the deadly tuning fork.


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago? *COUGH* Grand Galvatron *COUGH*. Sorry, just clearing my throat.
