"We're going streakin'!"

Join the Twincast crew as they embark on Episode 79! This episode’s party crew consists of Counterpunch, ScottyP, Seibertron, Rotorstorm, and Tigertrack. While this episode has nothing to do with Old School, it does feature a discussion about Masterpiece Streak and even has the return of Listener Questions!

Episode 79 "Streakin'" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.

FUNCTION: Gunner
Masterpiece Bluestreak is in many collectors’ hands at this time, and he looks fiiiiiinnnneeee. New MP galleries on the site get discussed, too.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

And of course, galleries lead to more galleries...we look at Magnificus, a very worthy repaint of a pretty good figure. And it’s black.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"
My class picture...I looked so young there.

Guess what?!? More micron arms exclusives are on the way from TakaraTomy. Whoa! Pretty colors.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

It’s a dragon, it’s train, it’s....Optimus Prime??? What is this Go! Optimus Prime thing?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"


My favorite topic, black exclusives. Black exclusive, black exclusive black exclusive Hunter Optimus Prime, black exclusive black exclusive Leo Prime...BLACK EXCLUSIVE!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

TOPIC du JOUR
What happens when a brand gets so popular it has major motion pictures, many comic book titles, cartoons, and not one, but two toy companies that produce toys in the name of it? Why, we have a bit of a topic of discussion with the podcast crew as we try to figure out just what a Transformer is these days. Something for everyone? Or no seeming direction to the brand?


We take a few moments to discuss the fine work of Guido Guidi and Simon Furman as IDW’s TRANSFORMERS REGENERATION reaches issue #95... and its stride.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

Not to be outdone, we talk about IDW’s TRANFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE #22 which finally answers the question, “So what the hell does Rung transform into?” Just when you’d had your fill of Transformer big names showing up and being all high and mighty, another shows up and does the same...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

Oh and there’s a little Transformers comics event coming soon, DARK CYBERTRON #1 is coming soon, and we give a quick breakdown of some preview pages courtesy of iTunes.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

Hey, the Twincast would be nothing without our community of listeners, and we answer some questions from the listener mailbag that ask about displays, mixing your lines, waffles, and outrageous ideas for the upcoming Whirl toy's repaint/retool. Thanks for the questions!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

Ryan turns a blind eye to our next discussion about third party toys, and what is the future of the toys, the companies, and the popularity. Anybody been priced out yet?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #79 "Streakin'"


Speaking of third party toys we finally get into bragging rights where more unofficial product gets mention.

Thanks for listening to the Twincast podcast. We love doing this for all you who give it a listen.

Welcome back to the one and only Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast! Join our host Counterpunch along with his fellow Podcast casemates Razorclaw0000, jON3.0, Rotorstorm, ScottyP, and Tigertrack in Episode 78 titled "Dramatis Personæ". You can find this episode directly, in our RSS Feed and it should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.

Want to know what's in this episode? Check out below for a brief rundown!

Transformers 4: The Age of Extinction Toys
You knew they were coming, but did you know that they were going to possibly look. like. THIS! Who likes the style and who doesn't? What's your impression of how the new movie line will be received after our first images of Age of Extinction Leader Class Optimus Prime were shared via New York Comic Con? The Twincast, of course, shares their open-minded and certainly never pessimistic ideas.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #78 "Dramatis Personæ"

New Masterpiece News!
The next new mold Autobot car has been released, and many of the podcast were lucky enough to have Masterpiece 17 Prowl in-hand to let our listeners know exactly just how much you should want this toy. (We also talk about boobies...I mean hoods, grills, and headlights of a car.)

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #78 "Dramatis Personæ"  

Speaking of masterpieces, the podcast crew has a tidbit of advice, based on the re-release of the MP-11 Starscream mold in Asia.

Transformers Masterpiece Starscream (MP-11) Gallery


Weren't we just speaking about masterpieces? Our crew sounds off on what has taken so long to become a reality, and makes an effort to try to convince any US retailers to take a shot at an MP-Ultra Magnus as a store/holiday exclusive. 1986 movie cast rules!

Shout out to Vince Dicola!
We love the 1986 Transformers movie, and thus, we can be moved to want to own everything related to it including the excellent score. Well some of us. Let nothing stand in your way of hearing about this cool music collectible.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #78 "Dramatis Personæ"

Comic chat
The podcast is really looking forward to the IDW DARK CYBERTRON event, and RID 21 discussion and spoilers get us thinking about what will be.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #78 "Dramatis Personæ"

Rise of the Predacons!
The crew of the Twincast discusses the finale of the PRIME and BEAST HUNTERS TV SHOW and recaps some of the entire series' failings, and successes. Some critical analysis of some plot pieces and characters leads us to try to decide on whether or not this was an endeavor that we overall enjoyed, or not, and leads us to wonder what comes next?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #78 "Dramatis Personæ"

Remembering A God
The great Orson Welles, who played his final role for the Transformers franchise as the voice of the biggest TF baddie ever, made fans take note and remember why this actor was so great (Robin Masters voice on MAGNUM PI!) on the anniversary of his passing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #78 "Dramatis Personæ"

'Small Cast' versus 'Selling Toys' versus 'Gimmicks'
The bridge crew of the ark 78 takes us on a journey for enlightenment as we discuss the new Transformers storytelling style that has been working its way into the media since Beast Wars and what this has meant for our enjoyment of the franchise. Why has the small, central cast become the norm? What does the introduction of new HASBRO/IDW characters and using them in the limited casts mean for those with classic favorites being left out? Is the small cast better than the rotation of a large cast that is more or less determined by product release? What is happening to all the gimmicks like all the masters (head-, power-, target-), energon weapons, and minicons for previous franchise examples that also used to drive the media? They seem to be non-existent in the most recent iterations of toys, shows, and comic books (Example: Arms Micron Takara vs. Prime HASBRO). When we're done there still is no answer...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #78 "Dramatis Personæ"

That's a wrap!
And finally the crew wraps up with recent toy purchase discussions, and many jealousies are had.

Good day, and thanks for listening to the TWINCAST PODCAST!

How do you ‘drop the mic’? In this episode of the Twincast, you’ll find out at least two ways that MC Razorclaw0000 and his crew of rhymin’ ROTORSTORM, jammin’ JON3.0, stylin’ SCOTTYP, slammin’ SEIBERTRON, and tenacious TIGERTRACK figured out how to do just that.

Episode 77 is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post. If you wish to try out the chapter enhanced version, it is available from here.

After the introductions, we quickly get into a passionate discussion about comics, specifically IDW’s TRANSFORMERS MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE #21, sharing our thoughts on the conclusion of this arc, and its many surprises. Much love and respect to the creators. Comic talk continues with slightly less vigor as this 2LiveCrew reacts to TRANSFORMERS REGENERATION ISSUE #0.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #77 "Drop The Mic"

In a surprise move, HASBRO reveals plans for the near future in a toy magazine insert and of course, we all react! Dinobots are on our mind again, TF4, and will Beast Hunters ever end? What’s this new cartoon event about?

Club Subscription Service 1.0 Breakdown shows up, and we offer up praises to the club, and check out the new SEIBERTRON gallery. Then we kick about the subscription service 2.0 which has gone live with a cool sweet early-TF toy catalog advert image, and just how cool is this set shaping up to be?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #77 "Drop The Mic"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #77 "Drop The Mic"

HASBRO’s new channel for showing how to transform TRANSFORMERS toys has gone live and we’re liking it, but not lovin’ it. Do video reviewers like our friend JON 3.0 have to worry? In totally unrelated news, JON3.0 shares information about his contest to win Beast Hunters toys by just watching his videos! Pretty dope, yo.

*If you haven’t guessed, we went into extra innings with this episode...and I’m running out of creative gas as the list of topics continues...there are only so many ways to say ‘discuss’.*

We take a virtual tour of the CHINA EXPO TRANSFORMERS DISPLAY, and slip on the collective pools of awe-induced slobber. You could say it was pretty impressive.

Did you know there was a Costco Exclusive Cyber Metal Armor DOTM Shockwave that had some really cool details like clear tubing and other goodies? Apparently, neither did SCOTTYP. It’s the return of the during show counterpunch purchase...(x2) and related COSTCO and SAM’s CLUB EXCLUSIVES like COSTCO GENERATIONS METROPLEX banter and braggadocio.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #77 "Drop The Mic"

You’d think all that would be enough to entertain you for one show, wouldn’t you? Oh no my friends, we’ve got quite a few more subjects to cover including Generations Deluxe Wave 3 Comic Packs images, Generations voyagers Rhinox and Doubledealer, and Beast Hunters Weaponizer Wave 2 (listen carefully and hear Bumblebee talk!).

Wait, there’s more!

SEIBERTRON shares what might have been as he debates the LINKIN PARK version of G1 SOUNDWAVE’s PROs and CONs and just how far it fell from its initial introduction.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #77 "Drop The Mic"

And finally, the surprising return of KREO as wave 4 Microchangers are revealed and there is much rejoicing--and we talk about customizing your own little bots too. We throw in some talk about the GO! TRANSFORMERS NINJA TEAM as well... and what the shizzle are these, and where do they fit in your collection? Oh and GUREN DRAGONTRON too.

And then there are bragging rights... and it... gets... real.... (Spoiler Alert....Rotorstorm wins!)

"In my mind I'm going to Carolina..." which is unfortunately exactly how I experienced Charticon, but Podcasters Mike, Scotty, and Jon, as well as Bob were there for a first hand experience of the small convention scene, which turned out to be not quite so small, and they describe it to me, Matt, and for you, the listening audience to enjoy. This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.

This episode of the Twincast has a couple of different pieces. The previously mentioned introduction by Counterpunch, Scotty P, Jon 3.0, and Tigertrack as we discuss small conventions, and Charticon specifically and some appropriate new news items like Generations Hoist and Thundercracker (and the other recently released Generations toys as well--check out the galleries!), the new Bot Shots reveals (cool new Soundwave!), and always relevant and reliable for a great discussion, the TRANSFORMERS COLLECTOR's CLUB and their sharing of the first full figure digital mock up of FSS 2.0 TREADSHOT and a secret scout-sized 7th character toy!

Also in this short first segment, these 4 guys (missing a guy and fries) also discuss KRE-O, retail release of Platinum Edition toys, and even touch on the comics a little as we discuss the recent 'Dark Cybertron' covers and what has interested us lately in comics.

Then, Part 2 of the podcast is a live recording from Charticon in North Carolina with podcasters Mike, Bob, and Scotty, and some other friends who joined them in discussions and fun.

Don't forget! The podcast is running a photo contest. We currently have two entries for this contest, so the rest of you need to pick up the slack, and show us your creativity, or you are just conceding that the two entries we have are THE MOST CREATIVE POSSIBLE...

See you around next time faithful listener, and thank you for listening to the podcast.

By the way, check out the image of Seibertron board member JRGReer74 and his awesome prize from CHARTICON! Congrats JRGreer74, many jealous board members salute you!

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.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #73 "Beast Hunting"

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.

And finally...

Do you like free stuff? If so you may want to tune in as the crew of the podcast announces a bit of a contest. Details are in the show, and will be expounded on in this podcast thread. We're looking forward to your creativity. The winner will receive a new Generations deluxe class Transformers toy. Only U.S. residents and non-Seibertron.com staff members are eligible to win.

Thanks for tuning in! If you get a chance, please leave us some feedback about this episode. We really like to hear from our listeners!

Saturday night at BotCon unfolded like many previous BotCon Saturday nights. After the traditional dinner reception, many BotCon attendees partook in a fun Casino night accompanied by drinks and other entertainment. Many of us headed to Town & Country's Charlie's bar afterwards. Once the bar closed down, we thought it'd be fun to do an impromptu Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast recording because, you know, that's always a good idea after a night of drinking and tomfoolery.

Many regular Seibertronian BotCon attendees were present ... some of the roster includes Joevill, El Duque, ScottyP, his girlfriend Candace, Rated X, Flux Convoy, Claire, Prime Evil, Mr and Mrs Delicon, and many others. If you were there, please feel free to join our conversation to share your thoughts about the first ever official SEIBERSOCIAL!

A word of caution about this episode ... it's a pretty raw episode. It was recorded around midnight on a Saturday night at BotCon after the bar closed. We were all having a really good time. During the episode, there are some ramblings, repeated questions, etc. And we all continued on with having fun while we were recording. It's a light hearted episode that some of you will find very entertaining while some of you will find it very annoying. It's just a carefree episode with a group of Seibertronians recording a moment in time at BotCon 2013. You've been officially warned!

This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.

Here are a few pictures from our Saturday night adventures courtesy of our good friend Joevill!
