Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. We're back with another exciting episode that features your host, ScottyP along with Counterpunch, Tigertracks and xRotorstormx. Sit down, stand up, get hype and enjoy as we discuss all the latest news and reveals.

Episode #154 "The Misfits" 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 start this episode off with a new reveal that looks as if they could be The Misfits (from Jem of course). Takara unvealed the next United Warriors box set Megatoronia and it is full of day glow goodness but, what does the crew think of this bright reveal?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


Up next, we decided to change things up a bit and dive right in to some listener questions which reminds us...too much is never enough. When can collections go too far, and have any of the crew had to identify that moment in their own lives?

After that, we bring the mood down a little and tug at your heartstrings with a few stories of when collecting was not all fun and games. We come out the other end looking for positives and lessons, so who knows, this podcast might just teach you something this week.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


The new Robots in Disguise "Clash of the Transformers" toys are starting to hit shelves and a few of us were lucky enough to get their hands on a few. We share our impressions and briefly discuss the high and low points of each character, ponder about instructions, and get completely stumped trying to identify an axe.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


The TFCC exclusive Skywarp has started to arrive with a very interesting package. We've also received the last 2 figures in this years TFCC Subscription Service, Impactor and (Blue) Bluestreak but with only 4 months left in 2016, will Sub Service 5 make it? The crew discusses this, plus gives their overall impression on these newest club figures. Also: unused Beast Wars Uprising concepts, and the groaning that follows.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop on August 9th, but something was different this year. There didn't seem to be a rush to get the exclusives. Why was this, and why did one podcaster go 'all-in' with this year's products anyhow?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


Thanks to Toys R Us Canada, we've seen a sort-of surprise sneak peak of the upcoming Titans Return Doublecross. With not much to go on, the speculation starts to run wild as we hope for better looks of upcoming toys very soon.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


We close out this episode with a segment you cannot possibly be prepared for. What is this crazy segment, you may wonder? Well, it involves the Battle Beasts.

And Bragging Rights.

Yep, buckle up, because it's time for the first ever, super awesome, mega extreme, ultra gear Battle Beasts Bragging Rights. Join in the fun via site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store by getting your own fire lion here.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


Then real bragging rights wrap up another episode, where the IDW topics got cut for time so stay tuned in about two weeks for thoughts on some of the latest comics and perhaps just some of the earliest too. What does it mean? You'll have to come back next time to find out!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. We're back with another episode featuring your host ScottyP along along with RodimusConvoy13, and, like a blast so far out of the past you'd think it's three years ago, we have Counterpunch, TigerTrack, and Razorclaw0000 back together again! Seibertron also stops by shortly after the proceedings start to take us through an excellent adventure from the world of Transformers 5: The Last Knight. Buckle up and settle in, it's going to be a fun ride.

Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron" 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 start by celebrating the recent 30th anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie. What does it mean to us? When did we first see it? The cast relates some stories and memories. Seibertron also gives his delightful news that he's getting the new Blu-Ray very soon.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
Prime's death really wasn't what upset Scotty.

Continuing in the movie vein, Seibertron tells us of his adventures on the set of Transformers 5: The Last Knight! What did he see? Who did he meet? Check out his account of this awesome opportunity.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
I'm driving down I-96 as a big old Semi Truck!

Moving on from movies we move to comics. With the long awaited return of Razorclaw, he carries us away with tales of stacks of comics and couches. He's finally caught up on the IDW era of Transformers comics, so find out his thoughts plus a few of those from the rest of the crew. Also: Seibertron comes to grips with a long held gripe.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
I grew as a character. Then I regressed.

After that it's on to the toys. There's a few of us with Titans Return Fortress Maximus. Does he live up to expectations? Has anyone found the best city mode? Find out this and more, along with a very short discussion of the different versions available.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
I'd show you my best city mode if these guys would get off of me.

CybertronCon revealed a lot of great upcoming Titans Returns toys. Hear us talk about what our favorite reveals were such as the tantalizing peek at Trypticon. Six Shot's great "submarine" mode, Hot Rod retools, triple changers and more help us finish off this summer's season of reveals.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
You don't like my Jet mode? *sniff* That hurts, man... *sniff*

We finish off this episode with bragging rights! We got a lot of fun things since the last show! What was our favorite?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
Time to send the haters back to Crybertron.


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.

The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with the sister show, the Mainframes Podcast, as the third episode dives right in to the recently concluded More Than Meets The Eye story arc "Dying of the Light". Join us on a deep journey into Transformers comics with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al returning to latch on to all the details of MTMTE 55 and the arc as a whole.

Episode #152 "The Hollow Men" 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.

Be aware that this episode is entirely about IDW Transformers comics and will completely spoil many storylines from several books, so listening after catching up with the most recent material is recommended if you wish to avoid spoilers.

As always, we start at the start, looking at what the significance of the re-emergence of the Galactic Council might mean for events in this book and beyond. There might even be some realizations about where the General has been seen in the past!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Still not the droids tentacles you're looking for.


The twists, turns, and revelations found throughout the latest issue of MTMTE will be tough for many to forget, and were especially unpredictable. We take a look at some of the more controversial reveals, and get a lesson in where we might want to look for character elements in the future.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Inspiration from the past. No really though.


Of course, this story also wouldn't be the same without Prowl. Wait, Prowl!? How does he keep coming up every episode of this show?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
What he must do to every script draft where he doesn't matter even a little.


There's only so much we can say about this one without loading up this news post with spoilers about the plot, but rest assured we cover all the details we can think of. Might there have been a few that we weren't fans of?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
"Towards peace? Helex, I've read this a hundred thousand times."


While Scotty might not be able to get his thoughts organized while on the air, blogger Thistlebot (spoilers behind this link!) put together a great article about some of the thematic elements, especially surrounding edits and what they convey. Read the article around the point Mr. P starts rambling, then keep on with the show. (No really, do that, it's kind of embarrassing but I didn't edit it out.)

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Sometimes there's just no talking like this guy.


Wondering what's up with the title of this episode? Maybe not, but if you are, then sit back and enjoy the good Dr. Va'al connecting the themes of Issue 55 and "Dying of the Light" on the whole to T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men. Fun fact: this news post was almost nothing but that poem.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
A penny for the old guy.


Connections to "Remain In Light" start to come into focus as we wrap up the show. The speculation and theories really fire up by the end, with both the hollow planet that frames this story in focus along with somewhere we might have seen other uses of this mold before. And no, we're not talking about Combiner Wars toys this time.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Still more coherent than Continuum.


We hope you enjoyed this latest episode of Twincast / Podcast spin-off Mainframes, and stay tuned for future episodes as the ongoing IDW Transformers saga continues to unfold! We'll see you in the discussion thread for this episode which you can join in on by replying to this very news post.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Thanks as always to our amazing friends at Hasbro and the Transformers Brand Team!


The remainder of the show kicks things off with a lively discussion dissecting one of the biggest reveals of the show: triple-changing Titans Return Voyager Megatron. The cast has both high hopes for and reservations about this figure - but bigger news awaits.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Do you see what I see? (No, it's not a Triggerhappy Optimus.)


We move right along to some exciting Legends reveals: an all-new Bumblebee (yawn) and Gnaw, the Sharkticon (yay). As we bemoan the inevitable shortage of these nifty little troop-builders in the making, one question rules all: does Gnaw have a fat head? Watch or listen to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Catch 'em all!


Titans Return Legends Lione (Sawback) and Overload (Overkill) are on the block - as are their strange and wondrous alt modes. Before the Twincast can get too deep into the weeds, a question emerges: what missed opportunities do we see with this line of Headmasters?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Free cookie to whoever can tell me how that alt mode works.


Ever since he was leaked at Botcon, Liokaiser (video here) has been generating considerable excitement - but not everyone is pleased. Tune in to find out what's bugging the crew, and why some might be passing on this Platinum Edition set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
The boys are back in town... minus one.


RID gets some much needed love with Super Ginrai, a showdown set with stasis pod, and... Starscream? That's right, one of the Decepticons most conniving players makes an entry into both the cartoon AND toy line. Tune in to find out which version we prefer.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
A face only a mother could love.


Viva La Revolucion! That's right, the Revolution is upon us as we discuss the latest and greatest in comics - for those looking to avoid spoilers, this section occurs from one hour and fifty one minutes to approximately two hours and sixteen minutes.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
ROM ROM ROM ROM ROM.


BREAKING NEWS: straight out of Wonderfest, we have color pictures of the highly anticipated Masterpiece Cheetor. The crew is pumped as we parlay this topic into a listener question: what does the crew think the next 5 MPs will be?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Meeee-owwww.


We wrap up our video live show with everyone's favorite segment: bragging rights. Some of us are still waiting on Titans Return to hit shelves; others have some shiny new toys (literally) that steal the show.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"

The Titans Return toys have arrived, and the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast also returns for episode 149 with host Scotty P, along with Rotorstorm, RodimusConvoy13, and Seibertron. If you're in the mood for toys, this is your episode, with an entire show dedicated to Titans Return as well as a few other recent Transformers Generations releases from around the world.

Episode #149 “Titans Arrive“ 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.

Oh, and if you're looking for non-toy talk, check out Episode 150 for an entire episode devoted to Sins of the Wreckers!

With a new toyline upon us, we take stock of all the in-hand impressions we can give you on each of the toys that one or more cast members has in their possession. You can follow along as we go from toy to toy using the Titans Return toy galleries, which are being updated almost daily with comprehensive photos of all the new toys.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Prepare to hear about this guy. A lot about this guy.


After taking time for the Voyagers we chat it up about the deluxes from the first wave: Scourge, Hardhead, Skullsmasher, and Blurr. What car mode has zoomed into our hearts? Is it a boat or a spacecraft? Tune in for answers to some of this, and you may even figure out a way to make your Skullcruncher a bit more stable when standing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Squeezecruncher, perhaps?


Bases are in this year, right? The Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Primeand wave mate Blaster prepare to host all the little bots as they build their Cybertronian cities. Is this play pattern something you like to indulge in, or are these gimmicks too obtrusive for you? Let us know what you think in the thread, and post pictures of your best base modes too!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
If we actually took anyone's money for this show, we'd just use it to turn our recording areas into large replicas of this.


The Titan Masters get their due time as well, with Nightbeat, Loudmouth, and more driving their tiny tanks all around the conversation. Or is it a floating tank?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Supplemental, complementary, or is that too much math?


Just in time for this edition of the show, Fortress Maximus arrives at Seibertron HQ. Experience a live unboxing (sort of), first impressions, and even some serious armature. You know, to attach his arm. Like Metroplex, only more fortress-y.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Drive me closer!


Combiner Wars isn't totally over, and a quick time out from the Titans is in order as we look at some of that line's later releases including the recently released Unite Warriors Bruticus set. This one features new mold Blast-Off, plus some other enhanced deco editions of the Combaticons and other minor retools such as Vortex's blades. Find out if we recommend this set, or if it's just a swindle.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
With apologies to Casey Kasem


There's even a bit of the Transformers Subscription Service lending a limb, and a new matrix, to this episode. Windsweeper and the Matrix of Malice have arrived in mailboxes. With a slick new deco, we have plenty to say about this latest entry from the Transformers Collectors' Club, and even convene the most pointless debate ever about which Matrix mold it uses.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
MP-10 to put it in not included.


After talking still more about Titans Return, and then more about it, and then more about Galvatron again (and again), we at last move on to finish the episode out with some bragging rights.

Because you, the listeners, demanded it, the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with the Mainframes podcast's second episode, focusing purely on the world of Transformers comics in an in-depth way. The team assembles early on a Sunday morning with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al returning to dissect, praise, explain, and speculate away about the recently completed Transformers series Sins of the Wreckers.

Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule." 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.

If you're looking for non-comics talk about the latest Transformers toys, check out Episode 149 with our lengthy, in depth coverage of Titans Return toys.

We take our time and look all the way back to the start, remembering those first pages initially seen last October. This also quickly gets in to analysis of the books tone, color palette, and layouts, all of which are a style very prevalent through each issue of the book.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
That Ashcan issue was a long time ago now.


The return of Springer is an unavoidable topic, with the character being extremely pivotal to the story told in the series. We discuss the timing of his return, and the potential repercussions of it that may lie beyond. It starts out just fine, but beware, part of this absolutely calls for your tin foil hat!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
A hardcover collection's prose story pays off all over again.


Of course, this story also wouldn't be the same without Prowl. Just how did he get here, and what did Rattrap have to do with it or not? Plus - pulling the trigger and the difficulty thereof.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Reasonably placed blame


Dr. Va'al drops a bomb on the speculation front as we look back at Roadbuster's flashback. Pharma, Tarantulas, Hubcap, Mortilus, and Luna 1 come together in a way that catches the other cast members off guard. What do you think of this theory and what it could mean to the IDW-verse moving forward?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Maybe he'll pull out the RKO next time?


The main villain of Sins, Tarantulas, also comes front and center. Is this spider really big and bad, or just one of those two? Also, tiny. Internal. Robot. Heads.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Not the only grey one in the room?


The book's humor comes up as we work towards wrapping up any plot synopsis, and if you haven't been able to tell already, this show will completely spoil the book all the way to the end.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
What those that get spoiled will do to their Twincast subscription.


A short timeout follows to reflect on the humor ever present just beyond the surface. From Verity's violent science, to Impactor's quips, to a beached whale, find out the moments that we chuckled at (whether we should have or not) and share your favorites with us!

We also take up some of your questions from the Energon Pub Forums, including one that many fans want to know about when the book occurs. You can get the answer to that one without listening as it's just below, but tune in to see if your question got answered as well!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
From page 1 of Transformers #45


To close things up, we take one last look at speculation surrounding the events of the last few pages. What awaits Impactor, Springer, Verity, and the others, and did Tarantulas survive? What might Revolution have to do with it all? While many plot lines were closed up nicely, yet more questions await answers in the coming months.

It's been another weekend, another late Thursday night has come and gone, and you know what that means? Another work week. But to help you along to the next weekend, we’ve got some Transformers related comics, Beast Wars, Fort Max, Unicron, and toy packaging content for you to listen in on, and then share your ideas and thoughts about in this episode’s thread.

Leading us though this journey is ScottyP, who’s joined by the always introspective, Counterpunch, and mitten-state dwelling daddios, RodimusConvoy13 and Tigertrack. And Rom the Spaceknight.

Episode #148 “And Rom The Space Knight“ 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.

Our first chat is about the most recent issue of Transformers #54, and new phoenix series Transformers: ’TIl All Are One #1 (from the ashes of Windblade comes…) and of course, not to be left out a little something we like to call More Than Meets the Eye, issue #54. As we learn bits and pieces more about it, our team returns to talk a little more about ‘The Revolution’, MASK, and Rom the Spaceknight.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

The group breaks into comic book discussion on the lighter side talking about Transformers #54 (or Robots in Disguise, whatever you refer to it as) and whether the current arc is getting any better or not. We definitely treat this one pretty lightly, but you can expect SPOILERS in each issue…if you don’t want to hear them time for some fast forwarding. We’ve got reviews for these three issues on site as well (Review for TF #54, Review for TAAO #1, and Review for MTMTE #54) if you want to read some more about these issues.

What is Galvatron’s final play…does he have a trump card or is it all on the table? Will Superion ever combine again? Are Optimus Prime and Starscream on even footing now (both chosen ones in the eyes of the Titans)? Is this how you pictured COMBINER WARS playing out?

The newest series in the Transformers family is ’Til All Are One’, the phrase that meant a lot in the beloved 1986 movie, and since has been re-uttered in the new movies, cartoons, and other media a little ad nauseum. This is the rebirth of the Windblade series as something that maybe isn’t supposed to be so Windblade-centric, but more about new era Cybertron united and its Council of Worlds.

The launch issue focuses in on events and characters related to Swindle and what he may or may not have known, and how it is effecting Starscream, the Combaticons, and the rest of Cybertron.

We ask pretty obvious questions like, “Is Swindle still alive?”, “Who is DC- 357?”, but introspectively Counterpunch brings to point Starscream, and his precariously balanced leadership position.

And MTMTE… so many questions, and many answers… which lead to more questions. Our big question, “Should Megatron die?”, and related to that “Will Megatron actually die in issue #55?” Some awesome hypotheses on what’s in this hollow planet and where RUNG and NIGHTBEAT are during all this super-powered fighting and action and what does CHOOM, CHOOM, CHOOM signal to us.

To wrap up the comic discussion, we talk more REVOLUTION, since we received some new solicits, we look into our crystal balls again and decide if the TRANSFORMERS universe is getting a soft reboot, no reboot, or a very hard reboot. And ROM the Spaceknight.

Whew. That was a lot.

*Writer's Note*- not in the podcast though- I wanted to give some love to Nick Roche who is creating some truly awesome stuff for Transformers fans and recently went through a series of very traumatic and wonderful events causing the delay in a product we were really anxious for. Nick recently shared his trials and triumphs in a blogpost. We love you brother, be well, and enjoy the new addition. Thank you for all of your efforts in these times.

On to our Beast Wars Re-Watch, Re-Action, “my queen”. This time we watched episode 18, ‘Spider’s Game’, and episode 19, ‘Call of the Wild’. “Defend the hive!” These episodes introduced the ever cool, very memorable, or not, but ultimately hot, pyromaniac loyalist— INFERNO (no not that INFERNO, which is also very cool, but not talked about this time)! Not everyone thinks Inferno is so awesome though, and we discuss the introduction of this new soldier and his place in Predacon history. And Rom the Spaceknight.

We briefly reach into our creative bags and throw some paint schemes out there for the new PLATINUM EDITION UNICRON and KRANIX. Clown Unicorn was my favorite, but Scotty preferred the Rom colored one (not actual things, listen for our ideas).

Oh my, SDCC is coming soon, and we share what version of TITAN MASTERS FORTRESS MAXIMUS we want the most to be our Fortress… SDCC with sword, fancy paint, and very Fortress looking Cerebro (and very hard/expensive to get if you aren’t at SDCC or know someone going), the regular HASBRO release; without sword, and with REBIRTH accurate Cerebros, which should be a little more plentiful but will probably be hard like Metroplex to find locally at retail (but not harder than SDCC or TT), or the general release Takara Tomy Fort Max with no sword that we know of—except 100 lucky folks in China, and a HEADMASTERS accurate Fortress looking Cerebros. As before with Metroplex, there may still be more versions coming in the Asian market for different conventions that are not yet announced.

You’d think this would be enough, but nope, we finally delve into a topic led by Counterpunch that breaches the world of packages… Transformers toy packages that is. The best? The worst? What in packaging attracts you? What turns you off? What packages do you keep or do you just throw it all away?

The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with Episode 0. That's right, this special edition podcast is a pilot for a new concept, the Mainframes podcast, focusing purely on the world of Transformers comics in an in-depth way. The globe spanning crew of Twincast / Podcast host Scotty P, comics expert and t-shirt guru Mr. Starscream, and Seibertron.com's very own News Administrator Dr. Va'al look to start this new project out with a bang by diving deep into More Than Meets The Eye Issue #53 from IDW Publishing.

Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields" 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.

Things get going with the first pages of setup, with Ratchet and Velocity setting the stage for the events to come. The call backs go way, way back and the crew takes some time to reflect on the world-building that's taken place.

Got his hands back, but can't decide on a head crest look yet.


More catching up comes next as we take a look into what Brainstorm and some others are up to. Friendship takes center stage, with some of the Lost Light's cast coming closer together while others are set to depart on a different adventure.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Well of course we are, podcasting is fun!


The first round of massive speculation takes over next. Are the missing glasses pointing to something? Or is regular cleaning of the optic sensors just good hygiene?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Just call me "LadiesMan217"


The big reveal of big reveals surrounding a certain character gets brought up as we proceed through the events of the issue. Years of plot threads collide, with yet more speculation about what it all means to events past and future.

Look, I'm not giving it away in a thumbnail in the middle of a news post, ok?


After the scene shifts, it's time to pick up with our villains and take stock of the odds against our heroes. Is there any chance? No. They have tanks with Decepticon symbols on them. Nothing else screams "Hopeless" like freaking tanks with Decepticon symbols on them.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
That guy on the right's got quite a plan.


Mr. Starscream then leads the way as we all ponder exactly who could have brought back the evil Overlord, and what their intentions possibly could have been. Get ready to bounce back to the Season 1 finale as we analyze what it might all mean.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
A penchant for Roman sculpture, perhaps?


Robot romance and hyperactivity come up next, with a two page spread leading to deep conversations about behavior and emotion. Tune in as we look at everyone's favorite clockmaker get bored, and everyone's favorite purple former-Decepticon get romantic.

All over your guns because they are guns and he needs them.


Megatron had to come up at some point, as we take a look at his tale of redemption and try to relate it back to other themes such as addiction. Also: is there actually something physically wrong with him, or is it all a physical manifestation of a disease of the mind?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Surprisingly, no additional uppercut required this time.


We close the show with a discussion about where More Than Meets The Eye stands in the pantheon of Transformers comic history, and then we take some of your questions sent in on social media.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Will anyone take a 'stand' on this topic?


We hope you enjoyed this "pilot" episode of potential Twincast / Podcast spin-off Mainframes, and be sure to listen towards the end of the episode to hear how to help make more episodes a reality! We won't get to make more of this type of show if you don't tell us you want it, so please, let us know if you do. We'll see you in the discussion thread which you can join in on by replying to this very news post.
