We once again get warmed up by taking a look at some of your listener questions, and this gets started out by a pressing, sticky issue from News Staff member WilliamJames88. Hopefully this one turns out with a level orientation.

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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
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.

You mean you didn't read Spotlight: Springer: Origin Backstory Journey Formation? Wait a minute...


The beasts take a back seat (mostly) for just a moment, as we wrap up current events chatter by taking a look at the continuing saga of Titans Returns leaks. With Toy Fair just around the corner, what surprises may still be in store?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
Chokon Power! Wait a minute...


After this, it's time for a new segment: a "Pick One" throwdown! This episode's clash is between Combiner Wars Bruticus and Combiner Wars Superion, and each cast member can pick which of these they prefer and use any version to justify it. A surprisingly specific example leads to a winner, and if you'd like to go ahead and spoil it, check out the amazing Seibertron.com Gallery of the consensus pick here.

DAWN OF THE RE-WATCH! For the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars, which is now upon us, the cast embarks on the Axalon for a re-watch of the Beast Wars TV series - or at least the first episode. Join us on a march down memory lane, as we experience the first skirmish of the Beast Wars once again. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on this segment, because it might be sticking around for quite a while. If you'd like to follow along, don't forget that Shout! Factory's DVD set of the series is still available at a great price.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This special episode has Scotty P and Seibertron's News Administrator Va'al chatting with IDW Transformers comic author Nick Roche.

Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers" 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.

Yes, you read right, this episode is all about the upcoming Transformers: Sins of the Wreckers from IDW Comics, and the author himself joins us to talk about the book and what it might bring readers. First up though, we'll tackle the truly hard questions about hotels and hard "ch" sounds.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
Every interview and article with him uses this photo and it's really old but it's a good stock photo and we have to keep the joke alive.


The conception of the book is discussed next, as we learn what might have been in the past had this book come sooner. Why is it coming out now, and how heavy do our expectations weigh on its creator? Answers lie within the show, but we can go ahead and tell you that after this segment, you'll want to pretend it was good even if it turns out otherwise.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
It was always destiny.


You may have noticed some familiar characters from other IDW Transformers titles in both previews, covers, and solicitations for Sins of the Wreckers. Nick lets us know what books you should read before, what books you should read during, and even sheds some light on how toys relate to IDW's plans.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
Could've left off this black paint if it weren't for con exclusives.


Stakeout, Kup, and Wreckerleaks take center stage next. Why is Stakeout involved, and what might he have been doing all this time in the background? What's a "Wreckerleak" anyway? Does this megalomaniac author have any remorse for the torture of Kup? Find out these answers, plus what Prowl may or may not know already. Whatever you do, be sure to brush up on the IDW iteration of Kup before the release of Sins of the Wreckers.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
You mean you didn't read Spotlight: Kup?


It's well known already that one of the most popular human characters from IDW Transformers will make an appearance once again in Roche's upcoming mini-series. Will Verity die? Like he could tell us now if we asked! You will find out more about her involvement, as well as Roadbuster's appearance, Whirl's lack of one, and even a bit about the color work on the book set to come our way from the one and only Josh Burcham.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
All her fault? Basically, yeah. Maybe Prowl's too.


The mood of the landscapes in the book comes into play next in our discussion. Everything goes well until John Barber out-Christmases us, so then we just play sing-along with The Audio Knights Theatre and the interview ends. Only one of the things in this paragraphs actually happens, but tuning in will explain the insanity of the rest of it!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
The last metroid is in captivity. The galaxy, is at peace.


The Transformers talk starts to wind down, but before we leave it, we ask Nick about his chance to write one of IDW's most complex characters: Arcee. Did he want her around for a reason, or was this just happenstance due to events in other books? Or is it really just a case of picking up Mr. Barber's daughter for the dance? Unlike the last paragraph of this post, the questions posed here do get answered in the show.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"


We finish out by finding out how you can get the book, as well as who might just have given the first issue a "thumbs up" without bribery being involved.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
Fairly sure this wasn't related to this. Fairly.


Oh, and there's even a little talk of the incredible Monster Motors mini-series that Mr. Roche collaborated on with Brian Lynch. Look out world, the Motors are eyeballing heading to an independent theater in limited distribution just like one of Lynch's other art house productions.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
There are no Transformers in this book, ok?


Our very grateful "Thank You!" to Nick Roche for taking the time out and appearing on this episode with us. We hope you enjoy the show, and be sure to pick up Sins of the Wreckers from IDW Publishing this November. The Twincast will return in a couple weeks with more of our regularly scheduled programming, and you can be certain more comic book talk will follow then.

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!

During the Hasbro panel at NYCC2015, of which you can see our gallery here, Machinima and IDW took the stage to give some further detail on the upcoming animated series for Combiner Wars. The biggest selling point for the Seibertron.com team is that it will be a Japanese anime-style series, with a focus more on the adult side of the fan base. No artwork or trailers were shown in slightest, and we expect all of the missing information to be revealed at the next Toy Fair. In the meantime, check it out embedded below!



Some highlights:

  • Main speaker is Eric Calderon, producer on Aeon Flux and Afro Samurai among others; he underwent 'Transformers boot camp' to understand the franchise.
  • Windblade will be the main character/perspective, as was for the comics
  • Not really a children's cartoon, something not really attempted previously
  • Trying to appeal to new and old fans alike
  • The series will be standalone, using previous fiction as sources rather than basis
  • 'Combiners have to fight each other'
  • IDW editor John Barber talks briefly about Titan Returns, and the re-emergence of Sentinel Prime from the IDW continuity
  • Barber, James Roberts and Mairghread Scott will be on writing duties again, creating one overarching story
  • Full updates and news in the IDW panel

Let's jump right in with some discussion on the new Robots in Disguise Deployers and minicons that are hitting store shelves and a neat little commercial that's been spotted. We also take a stroll down memory lane with the history of the minicons. *cue music*

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Clash of the Transformers, sounds like a new movie or video game doesn't it? Welp, it's not! The new Toys R' Us exclusive Robots in Disguise line has started taking over shelves and we'll discuss our thoughts on these new and very interestingly colored figures.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Takara seems to be pulling out all the stops with their new TAV line, which coincides with Robots In Disguise. Case in point, leader Optimus Prime, what makes this figure so fun, guess you'll have to tune in.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Now it's time to dive into some comics. Our comic gurus take on IDW's The Transformers issue #44 which is headed to a comic store near you.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"
*kermit flail* SPOILERS!

The Transformers Collectors Club's new Transformers / G.I. Joe crossovers are finally available. Marissa Faireborn with Afterbreaker (*cough* Afterburner *cough*) and Old Snake with the advanced stealth B.A.T. duo. The twincast sits down to discuss these interesting sets and whether or not we've decided to add these to our collection. A few of us may need some convincing...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Ahh glorious, shiny gold plastic. Yup, Transformers Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee has shipped and many of us have him in hand...except some of us have failed to actually open him up. SO is this a masterpiece figure that every G2 enthusiast or masterpiece collector needs? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out what we think of this little gold bug.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your upstanding host RodimusConvoy13, version two-point-oh Jon3.0, the very metal xRotorstormx, and dark horse Megatronus, who may or may not have ghost written this very post!

Episode #115 "Nenemis Prime" 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.

Today's a toy-centric Twincast, folks, and the crew is ready to tackle the rush of Transformers reveals coming your way. First we discuss the latest Botcon 2015 Cybertron's Most Wanted box set reveals: Battletrap, Shattered Glass Stepper, and... DOTM Megatron? The Twincast crew discusses Duocons, mirror universes, and the divisive first release of the Arms Microns Breakdown mold in the US, which is captured in a stunning gallery by our very own Seibertron. Which of these figures are we most excited about? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
It's over, Prime.


But wait, our friends at FunPub aren't done yet. We've once again entered the magical world of crossovers, with a few intriguing new entries on the G.I. Joe side of the ledger: Joe CON exclusive Old Snake and BAT (2 of 'em!) from the PRID deluxe Soundwave mold, and Transformers Collectors Club Marissa Faireborn with "Afterbreaker." Sit back as we discuss the merits of these rather slick crossovers, and the amazing galleries Seibertron photographed for your viewing pleasure.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
It's a mug only a mother could love.


Our final exclusive of the evening is dark, evil, and has an oversized meat cleaver as a weapon. Oh, and did I mention he's a combiner? That's right, the Twincast discusses the eHobby exclusive Grand Scourge. Is the Twincast crew picking up this Prime wannabee, or is that gold just a wee, wee bit too much?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Ha, he said 'wee, wee'...


On to Takara, and their newlineup of figures coming off the assembly line: Transformers Adventure. What's the crew picking up in this assortment of original molds and redecos? What are we leaving behind? What other crazy things can we expect ? We've got our opinions, and folks, you're gonna hear them!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Excellent execution. Read that as you will.


Takara's Unite Warriors Menasor has been revealed, and these Stunticons' are considerably different from their Hasbro counterparts. In a word: G1 accurate decos. Salivating yet? Well, it's not all good news - the Twincast discusses the tradeoffs, so tune in!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
But... but... where's Offroad?


Who's feeling the rage? Prototype images of MP-26 Road Rage (a retool of the upcoming MP-25 Tracks) have hit the interwebs, and the first female Masterpiece figure features a retooled head, curved thighs, and perhaps more. Bonus: in-package images of Hasbro's Masterpiece Bluestreak have been revealed... but we think you can guess which figure we're more excited about.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Oo-la-la!


Next up: Combiner Wars. Join us for a freewheeling discussion on the Protectobots, Cyclonus, and a few other Combiner Wars figures that have shown up in the Phillipines. How are we liking the looks of these wave 3 figures, and how soon can we expect them, given some of us haven't even found wave 2 yet?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Just think of the repaint potential!


Finally, on to some non-toy talk - Robots in Disguise has progressed to episodes 3 & 4, and those crewmembers brave enough to watch have some encouragingthings to say about this latest animated adventure!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
He's still got the touch!


Our penultimate topic for this broadcast: A listener question! Seibertron.com member Nemesis Maximo asks the crew about cleaning their dusty figures. How such an innocuous became a source for hilarity is beyond us...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?

Full galleries of these toys are also available, check here for G1/IDW Megatron and here for Armada Megatron.

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!

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?

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.

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.

Small in stature, but not in character.


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

Hyped up from the earlier Hasbro brand summary? Look no further: Seibertron.com war-time journalists Seibertron and ScottyP are on the front lines to bring you our first look at the new combatants to the Combiner Wars... the Protectobots and their combined form Defensor and Leader Ultra Magnus!

First up, give it up for the Protectobots! The ranks of the Protectobots include their leader, Hot Spot, and his subordinates Blades (retool and redeco of the existing Alpha Bravo mold), First Aid (who is rather jeep-ish), Rook (who transforms into a APC-like SWAT vehicle), Streetwise (sporty-looking police car), and Groove, who is now confirmed to be Legends-sized and also pulls double duty as forming armor to Defensor ala Generations: Combiner Wars Menasor.

Fans of the IDW-verse rejoice as they gaze upon Ultra Magnus... who not only rocks an IDW-themed look, but also includes his actual self, Minimus Ambus, who is capable of fitting inside the big UM and transforming into a Cybertronian vehicle. Also worth noting, as demonstrated in the last image, his shoulder-mounted rockets and rifles are capable of combining into a giant hammer, made iconic by the Animated version of the character!

Keep your optics tuned to us here at Seibertron.com: we expect to get official images of all of these figures sometime tonight!

***UPDATE***
We also have new images of Voyager Cyclonus, who forms the torso of the gestalt called "Galvatronus" whose head is based on (you guessed it) Galvatron (no images yet... stay tuned!), and Legends Warpath and Viper, the latter of which is an homage to a GI Joe vehicle, the Cobra-affiliated Rattler.
